Question about Vacuums

Dirt Devil brush

I have very long hair, and have always had to get hair out of the "axle" from the ends on which the brush turns. This had always been easy on my Hoovers, because it may be unscrewed. But the brush ends on my DD do not seem to come apart. Is it designed to? Tonight I tried to get it apart and now it makes a clicking noise when manually turning it; when connected to the belt and plugged in it's loud of course.
This vacuum cost me a whole 35 bucks two years ago, as a temporary while my Hoover was being fixed. Oddly, it worked better than my new Hoover ever did.

If it is making a nosie, one of the brush roll bearings may be bad, most likely will have to replace the brush roll.

My dirt devil breeze was rattling while on. I found that the one end of the brush roller had shifted off the sqaure ends. Is it bent inside? Can it be repaired or do I need a new brush roller


The ends are fastened to each end of a shaft that passes through the roller. If the brush has shifted, perhaps the nuts or other fasteners have loosened. You can try to tighten the nuts but be carefaul to avoid tightening too much, causing the roller to not turn freely

How do you go about cleaning the rotating brush on the dirt devil bagless vacuum?


Using a sharp pocket knife or a utility knife making a single cut across the length of the roller is a good way to start. Then it is just a matter of pulling the strands or fabric and hair, etc., off. I like to inspect the end caps and bearings as well. A touch of grease of oil can help increase the life of your roller as well. ( for the bearings)

That's because you got something caught in the brush and it tore the belt (likely) or slipped off the drive portion of the motor (unlikely).
If you look at the bottom where the brush is, there are a bunch of screws to remove the bottom cover usually and can access the belt and motor to run the brush. \
belts are usually 5 to 10.00 get a pack of 2 if possible and don't do heavy rugs or get material caught in the brush lest it will happen again.. typically you can find vacuums in the trash and remove their belts, usually is only 2 or 3 types of belts so get one for free perhaps from trash.

When machine is running the brush does not turn


You need a new belt. In order to change it, turn the machine compleatly upside down and place the head on a counter, handle on the floor.
There is a L shaped base plate to remove that has 5 screws in. Once the base plate is off, you see the brush roller and a silver shaft directly back from where the belt would ride. Remove the brush roller, place the new belt, Dirt Devil Style 5 ( see link below ) on to the shaft. Then insert the brush roller, so the belt is on the raised carved out section of the brush roller. Grab the brush roller at each end and stretch it till you are able to put the brush roller back into the base. Turn the brush roller backwards 3 compleat turns and the same forward to seat the belt.
Replace the base plate and you're done.

It may be that the beater brush is bound up . This will cause slipping, of the belt. Take out the brush and clean out the bushing . Hair gets wound up in side. once you have it cleand out. Put a few drops of cooking oil in side the bushing on both ends. This will make a big diffrents on how it spins. Good luck DFD

Missing part on motor shaft?


the reason the belts are burning up so quickly is the old rubber from the other belts is still on the motor shaft.clean the shaft down to the polished finish then put on a new belt.make sure your brush roller turns freely .thats the other possiblity.the brush roller might be bad.sometimes hair and dirt get twisted around the ends and keeps it from turning

Vacume brush won't turn but belt is not broken


The belt is probably stretched and won't drive the brush roll. Also check the brush roll, the ends should turn freely, if no, then replace it also.
