Vacuum is spewing dust out of the front vent! We have the Dirt Devil 12 amp bagless upright. Hoses are clear, brushes turn, everything fine except dirt blows OUT instead of going into canister. How


Hi! We actually don't recommend opening the motor compartment. It sounds like there may be a clog somewhere in the vacuum that you are unaware of. Please try following the steps below.

  • Remove the hose from the vacuum from both ends and check it for clogs.
  • Lay your vacuum face down, remove the bottom guard and brush-roll
  • Use a wooden spoon or something similar to help break up and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
  • Check and clean all the filters on the vacuum. If they are really dirty they may need to be replaced.
Hope this helps, if not we can be reached here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil

Why does robot roomba 530 repeatedly stop and say to clean brushes


I think it's telling you to flip it over, open up the brush compartment, take the brushes out, remove everything wrapped around them, replace them and close it up. I suspect that your brushes are wrapped up with something.

Next open up the filter compartment, dump it into the trash, pop or slide out the filter and bang it into the trash can. Give it a quick rinse in the sink to wash off the fine dust still on the filter. Let it dry and insert it back into the filter compartment.

Cleaned filters, lights still blinking


Somewhere in the compartment Where the filters go, there should be a sensor eye. Clean the eye of, and see if that doesn't solve your problem.

Replacing the filters in a hoover mach 5


The filter is located under a cover directly under the bag in the bag compartment. That's the only one I can think of.

My Riccar Upright leave lines of debris when I use it. Can you help?


Inspect the filter.Open the secondary filter on the base of the vacuum to ensure that dirt and debris have not collected on the filter, as this will limit motor performance. Remove the filter from the dust compartment and rinse with water to clean. Allow it to dry completely and return to the dust compartment.--------
Also check if dust bag is got over full and that is causing the problem.Open the dust compartment, take the old dust bag out of the bag holder and discard. Open the end of a new dust bag and attach to the dust bag holder. Close the dust compartment and tighten the dust cover.Also check properly that dust compartment is not got loose. Open cleaning attachment and check the hoses and nozzles on the frequently to ensure that they are free of dirt, obstruction or hair.Also inspect the brushes, if there is already dirt got stuck in the brushes and that is causing the problem.Clean the brushed.---------- This will help, to confirm where the problem is and to resolve the dirt /debris issue.----- Thanks.Helpmech.

Has no suction


1. Remove dust collector compartment/s. Look for any filters, remove and clean. (Make sure you DO NOT clean filters with water.) Take filter/s outside and "slap" them against a flat surface. (Filter will be very messy to clean)
2. Replace all filters and compartments.
3. Also try using a wire hanger and try to reach as far down the hose as possible to remove any obstruction/s.

Note: Clean vacuum filters frequently to ensure proper suction.

Hair in filter cleaned the filter out ran it again and more hair and dust


Sounds like hair is trapped in the machine.
Start with checking all the inspection valves, take off the sole plate and check to see if the brush bar compartment is not blocked.

Filter seems clogged.


Its fully blocked, needs stripping down and cleaning.
Start with the brush roller compartment, clean in their and take the bucket off and clean all filters Get your contractor back and tell him to get it serviced.
The motor housing will need cleaning as well.

Shutting off due to overheating


The foam style filters they sent you go in the top of the vaccume above the canister. There is a sticker in the back of the canister compartment indicating an orange lever in the top of that compartment. This releases a plastic retainer with the foam filter in it. Mine was so caked with dirt after 1 year of use it took a while to clean it up. I thought the vaccume was done for in only a year.
