How do i clean canister of dirt devil featherlight bagless caniter vacuum


Hi there! To clean the canister or dirt cup, first remove the dirt cup from the vacuum. Twist off the dirt cup lid. Remove the pleated filter and empty the dirt cup. Tap the filter against the trash can until the dirt stops falling. If the filter is really dirty it may need to be replaced. The filter should be replaced every 6 months. I have included a link where you may go to purchase a replacement filter if needed.

Thanks! Hope this helps!

Doesn't seem to be sucking up dirt well


Bagless vacuum cleaners leave the bulk dirt in a receiver, but they still rely on a paper air filter to trap fine particles of dust. All the air that the vacuum moves passes through that paper filter. When the filter plugs up, it has to be cleaned or replaced. The bagless "primary filters" are much more expensive than vacuum cleaner bags, but if you can afford to replace it whenever the machine's suction is impeded, its the tidyest solution. You can remove the filter and tap it inside a waste can to dislodge some of the dirt that's plugging it. You can use another vacuum cleaner to clean it somewhat better than just tapping it. (It doesn't have to be *your* other vacuum cleaner, it could be borrowed, at the car wash, etc.) You can use compressed air to almost all of of the dirt plugging it, but you'll want to do it outside somewhere that making a clod of dust is acceptable or at least unnoticed. After a dozen or more cleanings the pores of the paper filter will become too plugged to clean well even with compressed air and it will have to be replaced.

Pet hair, sand and large particulate are least likely to plug these filters. Kitty littler, which is pressed pellets of fine clay, clogs these filters very rapidly. The clay pellets break up into very fine dust as they pass through the vacuum and whirl in the dirt cannister. Avoid vacuuming kitty litter, or any other fine clay into a bagless machine as much as possible.

When i vacuum the dirt and particles are not going into the windtunnel container-appears to be cleaning floor but isnt making it into the container.filters are checked and cleaned.less than 6 months old


If there is no obvious clog in the unit, you might want to check the beater brush and the drive belt. Be sure the belt is not broken and be sure the beater brush is free enough to rotate. If there is a broken belt it will be obvious.
I suggest you remove the beater brush and clean it as best you can, add some WD40 at each end by the brush holders and reassemble.
I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating on this if you find my solution to be beneficial.

How can i clean the inside of my bagless vacuum


If you mean how to clean the dirt containers, rinse them out with water and let them dry before reassembly. Many bagless vacs also have foam filters which can be cleaned the same way. Good luck.

Vacuum is spitting dirt and debris out the back--what can I do?


the first thing you should do is clean out the container then check the filter if it looks dirty with a lot of dust it probably needs replacing.
check the hoes for dirt that might stick up.if the problem continues it needs a service.

No suction


have u checked all of the filters. I know that when not all the filters r clean the machine will turn on but then it will sound louder and still have no suction. Most times there is a filter under dirt container thats sits above motor and if this filter is not clean the motor cannot breath. Thus no suction
