Question about Dirt Devil Featherlight Bagless Upright Vacuum

Dirt Devil M088600 roller doesn't spin, no suction...

I bought this vacuum used, but it worked fine. The only problem was it made my house smell like dog, since the people who sold me the vacuum had 2 dogs and had vacuumed up a lot of dog fur. So I took the canister out and rinsed it, along with the long filter thing that goes inside the dirt canister, and now it doesn't work. It still powers up, but the roller doesn't spin and there doesn't seem to be any suction.

Help!

    I get suction through the attachment hoses but not through the bottom base. It worked fine for several months.

    Also, for the first time had a hard time opening dirt canister but probably not related.

How do I get rid of "dog smell"?


The only thing that might save it is to disassemble it, preferably outside, to get access to the entire path from intake to collector and clean that path with something that will neutralize the stench without harming the machine. I used this technique on an upright and had to scrub and flush every part with scented household cleaner. After it was dry, I started it and let it inhale a good dose of Lysol.

My Dyson smells like a wet dog and makes my whole house stink. I checked and there is no clog. What can be done to make it smell better, is there an airfreshner that can be put on the filter? I love the...


I have the Dyson DC 28. After cleaning out the filter multiple times I still had the wet dog smell coming out from the vacuum. I called Dyson's support line. The rep told me to put dryer sheets in the clear plastic bin and let it run for about 5-10 mins, make sure the bin is clear of all debris first. I did it and it worked. Not only is the smell gone, the dryer sheets removed all the remaining dust stuck in the bin. I was happy!

I use the vacuum for cleaning up **** and **** from my dog now everytime i run the vacuum the whole house smells like **** what can i do to clean out the vacuum so it smells less


I am not surprised at all ... this is a very unhealthy procedure you are using ... endangering the health of everyone in your home ... particularly the family but not excluding visitors. Please stop this at once. You are sending all the stuff in the **** and **** into the air for all to breathe, eat and live amongst. I suggest you toss the vac and get your rugs professionally cleaned. I also suggest you get your animals under control.

Belt keeps coming off


I believe there is something wrong with the roller, could be the barrings or the end caps are warped. Try this, take the roller out and with each hand on each end hold the roller and try to spin the roller with your thumb. If it does not spin freely the problem is the roller.

Our dog urinated on the machine. We cleaned both filters & plastic areas. Some might have gotten into the motor housing since it still smells terribly when turned on. Please advise


Place a Febreze sheet in the canister/dirt bin where the dirt collects. Let it spin around in there whilst you're using the machine. The fragrance will be spread throughout the vacuum cleaner. If that still doesn't work, you can always replace your filter - just call the Dyson Helpline and biuy a new one.
