It sounds like the reset thermal switch has to be reset. Most vacuums have a reset switch on them some were and that is usually by the motor or the very bottom of the machine. If the switch was activated you just need to push it to reset it but there might be more to your problem then you know. The switch might have to be reset because of these problems that need to be handled first or it will happen again. First is the motor might be getting hot caused to pluged air ways, bag to full, hair or something like that wrapped around the spinning brush at the bottom of the machine. You need to make sure the roller on the bottom is not tied up that would over work the machine and cause the switch to come on. Also their are on some machines small air filters for the fine dust see if those are plugged as well these could casue the problems as well. thanks

My Dirt Devil Bagless Upright suddenly has no suction either in the main part or the hose. I did vacuum up a ton of cat air 4 days ago, then empty the debris container. I can't afford a new vacuum.

i. get something long enough to go through the entire hose.
ii. push through hose as there may be some hairballs in there.
iii. check unit for blockages
if hose is blocked you could also flush it out with high pressure water, then allow to drip-dry.
iv. get a sphynx? :)

My bissel vacume was not picking up the dirt on the carpet. So I found that the hose was clogged. I unclogged it but the vacume still is not picking up the dirt. I also changed the filters.

I found out that if you remove the front filter holder, tip vacuum back and look down inside. Sometimes there is hair caught back in there and you won't get suction. I had to use something long, knife, very long type tweezers, to pull all the hair out. Worked great after that. About half way through vacuuming I will stop and remove the foam rubber filter and clean it. Oh yea, you will have to use a flashlight to look down inside to see all the hair caught behind the foam rubber filter cup.

Embedded Dirt Finder green light won't come back on - stays red

The dirt sensor is a motion detector. After it gets dirty it will either stay red or stay green. You can have the vacuum serviced at your local vac shop and possibly get this fixed. Sometimes they are as good as new and sometimes they are not repairable. It will not effect anything else though.
