Make sure the removable clear plastic tank part is properly seated and locked in. It will lock in even if it is not seated properly.

Are you talking about the beater bar? If so, you probably have a broken belt

I took the advice on the chat site and checked the tightness of the gaskets on the bottom. They were not secure. Once I fixed that all was well.

Belt keeps burning off


Be sure the brush roller spins freely. Tear apart the end caps and get the carpet string and hair out of it for better performance and longer belt life. Nothing much else it can be.

It's possible you simply need a new belt or roller brush. Place the power nozzle upside-down turn the vacuum on. Ensure the brush turns. If it doesn't, the belt has broken or is too worn to turn it. Replace the belt. Make sure the tension is properly set prior to reassembling the power nozzle.
Next, with the power nozzle upside down, run the flat of your palm across the brush area. If you can barely feel the bristles, it needs replaced. A good brush will loosen the yarn and strings, but needs to be cleaned periodically.
As long as the powerhead motor is running, there is no need to replace it. If it's not running, look for a reset button and press it. There could also be a broken wire, loose connection, or bad switch causing a power head motor to not operate..

String caught in the motor


OK - first things first. There's no way a shoe string, or anything else, can possibly get caught in the motor. If the string isn't wrapped around the brush roll it's probably gone through in to the bag. Please reply, describing the symptoms you've observed in as much detail as possible, then maybe we can figure out just what's happened.

Either it needs a new belt, they stretch and break, then won't turn the brush roll. The dirt inlet by the brush roll is clogged, the hose may have a clog in it, filters are bad. If the hose comes off on one end, is there suction there, is so then the clog is farther down. If no suction, then the clog is in the hose or filter.

Dirt devil mvp not sucking


Could be bad filters, is there suction at the end of the hose. That will tell you which direction to start looking. If no suction at hose end, then filters could be the problem. If you have suction, then the problem is down lower, dirt inlet is clogged, if belt has never been changed, then I am sure it has stretch to the point that under load it doesn't turn like it should. Could even be that although the motor is running, it may be running at a slower speed, in which case it would have to be replaced.
