Question about Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum M085845Vacuum

1 Answer

I bought the 085845 yesterday, put it together and had trouble pushing it on my 8 x10 area carpet. The vacuum did not move easily and seemed to "pick up" the carpet. It seemed that the automatice height adjustment may not have been working. Any suggestions?

Move the carpet height control switch to a higher position if the vacuum is difficult to push. If the setting is too low for the carpet being cleaned, the brushes press against the floor preventing the vacuum from moving easily.Set to a medium-high height setting then check.Slide the "Self-Propel" button to the "ON" position if the cleaner does not self-propel. -----------
The self-propel feature operates only when the cleaner switch and the self propel button are both ON. ---------- Try this settings and check.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Can't seem to pick up small items like lemon pips with Kirby G5. It just runs over them or pushes them backwards and forwards.


It sounds like your belt is broken, OR your beater bar is rotating but has not been adjusted downward to reach the carpet pile. Check by running the vacuum and looking to see if the beater is moving.

I can not get the Kirby vacuum to **** up the foam after I lay it


Few things to watch for.
1. Do not leave the foam on the rug for too long (2-5 minutes max) - long enough for rug to absorb it. This is why I would recommend doing carpet in sections.
2. If the carpet is really dirty or/and old - sometimes dirt breaks down the foam so fast that you will not get much (if anything) from the carpet. New carpets are treated with dirt repellents so fiber does not absorb the water and dirt does not stick to carpet easily. On old carpets this treatment is worn off so fibers absorb moisture very easily and there is not much you can do. You may wash it to get it as clean as you can, let it dry, vacuum and then use KirbyGuard to restore protection, but you decide if it is worth the effort considering that some stains will never come out.

Good Luck

The main problem is a weird noise caused by the brush not spinning on the carpet like it used to do strongly leaving a sweep mark on the carpet, which helps pick up the dust through suction. Seems to have lost the power, so I raised it, but it still doesn't pick up that well. What should I do, I already checked the belt, ripped all linen spinned on the brush. It just doesn't leave that mark on the carpet after being swept, it just stops. What should I do? Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. A couple of the problems you seem to be having is that the belt is stretched out and not picking up well and the other is the brushroll is not spinning freely in order to pup the dust and dirt. The average flat belt change is every 4 to 6 months for the best cleaning and the check your brushroll to see if that spins freely if not it is probably bound up with thread and hair and needs to be cleaned off @ every belt change. If the belt is tight it cleans well and the brushroll does not get a chance to wrap around the brushroll and slow it down. All part of the maintenance of a vacuum cleaner. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

No suction when carpet cleaning. Also won't stand upright


Its possible that it may be blocked in the foot of the vaccum. try going through your instruction manual to locate details on how to disassemble the suction brush and connecting ducts. If you dont have one then use this link to download it. http://ubermanuals.com/node/1870

Let me know how you got on
