I have a hoover Dust Manager DM6200. actually it is my friend's. She said it wasn't working well, so I took a look. It wasn't picking up, and seemed to be spreading dirt in fact. I emptied...


Hey Julie,

Hopefully we will get this solved together.

To me, this problem sounds like either the filters are choked up and cannot breathe, OR.... the bagless cannister is not quite sitting in the machine properly.
Honestly, I am more leaning towards the cannister not quite in properly, that is assuming that everything is out of the suction hose.

Start with the process of elimination. Remove and clean the filters with a paint brush or other brush. Get as much dirt and debris off of them as you can and replace them into the machine.
Turn on the machine, and using only the hose attachment, feel if the suction is there. If not, try a re-alignment of the cannister and check the hose. a small coin or marble running through the hose will tell you if there is still a blockage in there.
Where the attachment hose connects to the bottom of the machine could also be blocked up as well. This will also give the same effect of the dirt blowing out the bottom of the machine.

Lastly, it is also quite possible that the belt has stretched or worn out. This too will contribute to it not picking up.
Let me know if this helps, and we will go from there.
Good luck,
Mark

Seems to **** up the dirt/dust and simply blow it out instead of capturing it inside


Most of these have an suction hose and a blow port. One blows air, one sucks air. Make sure the suction hose is on the correct port. Also, a dirty air filter will cause the same effects. The filter must be good to prevent the dirt and dust being blow around.

Dirt devil vacuum has suction on bottom but not on hose


Follow the hose to where it goes into the body of the vaccum, you should be able to release it, you more than likely have something lodged in the hose or at the connection joint, Strech the hose once it is disconnected to make sure nothing is still lodges in it.

Hope this helps, If so please rate accordingly. Thanks, David

Dirt Devil Upright Bagless Vibe Vacuum no longer sucks


Sounds like there's a clog in the long hose that connects to the dirt canister. Remove the hose completely and check for clogs. There is a blue plastic piece that the hose is attached to. You can remove it by taking out the two screws in the back, and the four screws behind the dirt canister. Once those are removed, the hose comes away from the vacuum with the blue plastic piece attached. That should allow you to check for clogs. If necessary, take the hose outside or a place that is well lit, so you can visually verify the absence of clogs.

I have a bissell power force vacuum and I just pulled the bag out to change it and when I put it back in it began blowing air out the filter on the side and is no longer sucking


Hello,
Try checking the attachment hose for clogs. It should come completely off of the vacuum with just a few screws. Also, check the little hole underneath the brushroll where the dirt goes in. Hope this helps...

Blows dust and dirt out of brush area


Did you make sure to cut all the strings, hair, etc. out of the brush attachment on the bottom? Look in the corners too to make sure none has gotten stuck on the sides that needs to be cut out.

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.
