Handle release pedal replacement on Dirt Devil Reaction vacuum

I have a Dirt Devil Reaction vacuum that the handle release pedal popped out and because it was broken, I purchased a new pedal. Now that I have the part (and it is the right one), I can't get it into the vacuum correctly. How do I insert this part without breaking it?

take off the bottom like you are replacing the belt. You will find a little metal clip that controls the upright lock.  It may be lose or broken.

Yep check the hose at the back as it may well be clogged. Also undo the soleplate/floorhead and have a look up the dirt channel behind the floor brush. Either that take off the main bin and check the dust channel leading down to the hose.

You probably have a clog either in the hose , wands, or the dirt inlet by the brush roll.

The manual is confusing - I had the same problem. Make sure you put the belt around the smaller motor axle, not the lever arm attached to the on/off foot switch. It's a bit counter-intuitive, but that was my problem with this. Jeff

My Dirt Devil Reaction vacuum cleaner has a plugged hose.


Hi! A broom stick or something similar is probably the best tool you can use to remove a clog. Try pushing the broomstick in an up and down motion gently against the clog until it starts to loosen and slide out. If you are unable to remove the clog the hose can be replaced. I have included a link where you may go to purchase a replacement hose if needed. Good luck!

Why will my Dirt devil easy steamer not releasing cleaning solustion


Hi! You may need to prime the trigger to get the solution flowing. To prime the trigger recline the handle and pump the trigger vigorously about 30 times. Power the cleaner on and hold the trigger in for 30 seconds. Be sure you are only using the Dirt Devil cleaning products intended for use with this machine. Using something other than the specified detergent can clog the lines that deliver the solution. If your cleaner still isn't dispensing you can take it in to a Dirt Devil authorized service center for repair. I have included a link where you may go to locate a service center near you. Hope this was helpful!

How do you replace the handle release pedal


The handle release is just snapped into the bottom base. To take it out you will need to take a flat screw driver and pry the old one out. Then take the new one and pop it into place.

Sound like you have an obstruction in the suction path. check the foot (bottom) check for suction at the hose for blockage. the blockage is where you lose suction.

It could be a broken handle release, but it also could be the the clamps where the handle asm, and the base hold together came use, this will cause this problem on some Dirt Devils. The top has to come off to check this out.

Dirt Devil Easy Steamer Deluxe


Follow the plastic extension that runs from the trigger through the length of the handle. This requires more disassembly that at just the trigger. At the end of the plastic extension you will find a triangular-shaped "ramp" that pushes against a "button" plunger that opens the valve that releases solution. When you release the trigger, the triangular ramp retreats and the plunger is supposed to be pushed back out by an internal spring in the valve. This plunger sticks because of accumulated soap from evaporated solution. Try cleaning that valve and plunger by running clean, hot water through the system OR replace the valve. In the future ALWAYS thoroughly flush the system with hot, clean water after using the machine.
