Question about Dirt Devil Vacuums
085845 dirt devil. says on vaccum that it is automatic height adjust. This baby sits so tight to the floor that it will pull a 3 foot long rubber back rug right up the vaccum and stall the motor. Called Dirt Devil and they told me to lean handel back 45 degrees and let motor run until I heard a motor pitch change and it was set. My motor dont change pitch with handel held at any degree angle even after a minute of holding. Called them back and they said that not all models do that and I need to take to authorized repair. I have had it all apart and back together and I dont see anything that could lower the wheels. There is a plastic cam that forces the wheels down when sweeper handel is put into the upright position for storage or to use the hose attachment. But otherwise when the handel is down those wheeles just flop down and are loose with nothing to power them down or hold them down. Thanks for any help. Bud
Check the brush roll, are the bristles worn down? Check the belt also, if it is stretched, then it won't drive the brush roll like it should.

If it is only 2 months old, then it is under warranty, take it in for warranty repair. There may be a circuit breaker on it, usually on the back at the bottom, it there is, push it to see if it has tripped.

Well, I guess your visitors have come and gone, but the vacuum remains the same. It sounds like you have a broken or worn belt. The belt should be changed once a year (approx) and can break if something is picked up that jams the brush. It is also possible that you have something obstructing the vacuum inlet at the brush housing.
If the belt is worn, it can still look o.k., but won't have the tension to turn the roller when it engages the carpet. I suspect the belt is your trouble.
