Question about Dirt Devil CE6100 Featherlite Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Dirt devil vacuum cleaner--trouble vacuuming dirt and pet hair on carpeting --is the problem with the spinning brush which contacts the floor,  not contacting the carpeting??  I thought (when I bought this vacuum) that the aforementioned brush was adjustable to various heights of carpeting.  Sometimes, it seems like nothing is being vacuumed up --unless I have just put a new bag on the vacuum... Do I need or can I replace the spinning brush on the bottom of the vacuum so it kicks up and vacuums up stuff better??

Try replacing the belt. Rubber belts stretch out after about a year.

Dirt devil turbo clean sd40060 Cyclonic vacuum. Was given it as a present. Floor tool won't spin. Checked everything! Belt, for hair through out. All ok. Why isn't it working?


You should find a large button or flap on the floor tool. This is usually spring loaded and needs to be OUT. This should then let air in to drive the turbine which drives the spinner.

How to Turn off beater bar


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC44's brush bar is engineered to rotate on both hard floors and carpeting. The brush bar includes stiff nylon bristles to agitate and remove stubborn dirt and pet hair from carpet, and anti-static carbon fibre filaments to remove fine dust from hard floors and crevices.

For this reason, the brush bar is designed to run on all floor surfaces when the machine is in use, and cannot be turned off. You might find our Getting started guide useful:

I have model#UD40350 total pet compact. The lower vacuum brushes don.t turn.


Hi! It sounds like you have a broken or stretched belt. The belt controls the brush roll. If you are using the vacuum on carpet, you need the brushes to spin to agitate the carpet fibers. Below are step-by-step instructions on how to replace your belt. I have also included a link to the instruction manual if needed.

1. Lay cleaner flat and flip to expose nozzle base. To remove nozzle guard, use Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws.
2. Lift and remove brush roll and dispose of old belt if you see one.
3. Slide belt (style 19) onto motor shaft.
4. Place new belt on area of brush roll without bristles.
5. With new belt in place, pull and slide brush roll into nozzle making sure that the brush roll end caps are in the correct orientation.
6. Replace all screws to replace nozzle guard.

Your brush may not be spinning try pressing the reset button on the back of the power nozzle, it that does not work you may need to change the belt.

The belt is intact but the aggitator doesn't spin anymore. Had a horrible rubber smell, went to change belt. Not the problem. Anyone know what could be wrong? Dirt Devil bagless w/dirt indicator


Even though your belt is intact it still could be worn. if you tilt the vac up (roller off the floor and the roller spins, replace the belt. on most vacuums the life of the belt for optimum performance should be 9- 12 months. If your vac has a carpet / bare floor selection, check to make sure it is in carpet mode.

Posted by Swork100 on Jun 18, 2008
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.
