There is a thermal overload switch in the motor. It should reset itself. Let it cool down for a while. And it should start again.

Which vacuum would you prefer for pet hairs ?


I've been repairing vacuums over 30 years, I prefer a bag vacuum because a good bag vacuum is a lot less maintenance, all the nasty stuff goes in a cheap paper bag (which is actually just a really good great big cheap filter) which you simply remove and gently sit in the trash. It usually takes less than 30 seconds to change bags and only needs done about once a month. You will dump a dirt cup about 40 times compared to changing one bag. Bags compact the dirt while bagless fluffs the dirt. Bagless filters and dust compartments need frequent cleaning and replaced at least once a year to work properly. Bagless vacuums leak more dust and dirt which you will notice on your vacuum. In the long run its much easier and cleaner using a bag vacuum plus they usually last much longer, usually outlasting 3 or 4 bagless vacuums. Much less expense and hassle in the long run.

Do my Dirt Devil have a restart button it just stop running


Hi! No the vacuum doesn't have a restart button, but it does have a thermal protector that will shut the vacuum down when it is overheated. If your dirt cup was too full this will activate the thermal protector sensor. Clogs and dirty filters can cause this as well. We recommend emptying the dirt cup, tapping out the filter and checking the hose for clogs. The vacuum will come back on usually within 45 minutes to an hour. Hope this helps.

Why dirt devil breeze no power?


Hello! The Breeze is equipped with a thermal protector that will cause the vacuum to automatically shut off when it is overheated. This is most likely caused by a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. When the thermal protector is activated the vacuum will need to cool down before it will power back on. This can take up to an hour. Try these quick steps below to prevent the vacuum from shutting off again.

1. Twist off the end to the lower hose that connects to the brushes.
2. Use a wooden spoon to gently looses and remove any blockages in the lower hose.
3. Remove the pleated filter from the dirt cup. Tap the filter firmly against a trash can until the dirt stops falling. The filter should be replaced every 6 months.

I have included a link where you may go to purchase the F1 filter for your vacuum. If you still have questions please feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil, or Twitter @DirtDevil. Thanks! F1 HEPA Filter

Dust is blowing out the front vent.


If dirt and dust are blowing out anywhere that they shouldn't be, it's a sure sign that something's plugged farther on up the line. You'll need to disassemble the unit and clear the clog before anything will go through to the dirt cup. Also, as long as you're going to be taking it apart, check all the filters. This is a notoriously neglected part of bagless vacuums, and a very large part of why they start to lose the initial level of vacuum power. Clean the ones you can clean, replace the ones you can't. Walmart and Meijer's are a couple of places where you might find replacements.

My dirt cup is stuck. how can i remove it?


You have to push the lever to open. Then hold down on the grey shelf the cup sits on with one fingernail, and pull up on cup. It should then slide out. The dust has made the cup get stuck to the shelf that goes up/down and hold the dirt cup.

What causes a vacuum to make lots of dust and throw back out what it vacuumed


It sounds like the airducts that lead to your dirt chamber are clogged. The dirt can't get through to the dirt cup so it spits it back out and blows dust everywhere.

The cord may be bad, you may want to have it replaced, or have it checked before you get a bad shock.
