Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I have a Dirt Devil Vacuum that won't start up anymore. It was working, but then it stopped. The tube got clogged up. Now the tube is unclogged and empty and it won't turn back on. It's also hot on the bottom of it. Help? Blown fuse or what?

Some of the Dirt Devils have a reset button on the back, near the bottom. But if the it is getting hot on the bottom, that may mean the motor is trying to run but can't. Maybe something has jammed it. You would have to disasemble it to find out.

Dirt devil powerburst isn't spaying cleaner anymore


Hey there Angie, this is Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum,

Sorry to hear you are having some trouble with your Dirt Devil Powerburst. Below I have listed some things you can check on to remedy the situation.
  1. Make sure that the two rubber gaskets are attached to the removable tanks (and seat properly on them).
  2. Make sure that nothing is clogged in any of the tubes or chambers.
  3. Make sure the sprayer is not clogged. Over time soap residue can harder and build-up preventing the solution to pass through.
  4. When you turn on the machine, do NOT spray it. WAIT. Run it for 60 seconds in order to prime the pumps.
  5. If that fails, you can try running a mixture of water and vinegar to try to clean the lines.

Vacuum is clogged


Without specifics of Model, I can't tell you how. There are no clog ports in Dirt Devil vacuums. Usually a hose has to be removed to unclog.

My dirt devil is not sucking well, what do i do


Check the hose to make sure it's not clogged. You can do this by dropping a marble in one end and allowing it to roll through. If clogged, try placing the "wrong" end against the intake port of the vacuum and turning it on. If this doesn't work, try a shop or canister vacuum, hooking up to the exhaust port. If still no success, you may need to take it in to the dealer.
Also check inside the intake port for clogs. The piece of flex tube in the power head is another area where clogs form easily.
Make sure the "dirt tank" is empty and the filter is clean.
Another cause of lost or poor suction/air flow is a leaky hose. For this, replacement is the only solution.

Low Hose Suction, Hose is open.


thanks for the clarification.
since the hose in unclogged, the next place to look is in the body of the vacuum.
there is usually a tight turn in the dirt channel in the base. often you can see the clog if you remove the hose.

the next step is to dissasemble the base and look for the clog.

does the motor sound normal?
is the impeller turning at a normal fast rate?.

Either it needs a new belt, they stretch and break, then won't turn the brush roll. The dirt inlet by the brush roll is clogged, the hose may have a clog in it, filters are bad. If the hose comes off on one end, is there suction there, is so then the clog is farther down. If no suction, then the clog is in the hose or filter.

My dirt devil vacuum won't suck up anything and its brand new!!


Take the vac bag off and turn on the vac , it should blow air out, if not unclogg the hose where the bag connects, also when you check the roller and belt, unclog the flex hose(located inside base near roller assembly) that sucks up the dirt. As long as the motor works fine the rest is just maint.
