SOURCE: I have a Dirt Devil

Some of the Dirt Devils have a reset button on the back, near the bottom. But if the it is getting hot on the bottom, that may mean the motor is trying to run but can't. Maybe something has jammed it. You would have to disasemble it to find out.

If the filters have been washed and installed back in instantly there wont be any suction. Check the top filters have been cleaned thoroughly and also check inspection tubes/hose and dust channels to check for a clog. Also check the sole plate / bottom of where the beater bar as there may be a clog somewhere.

SOURCE: no clogs, work fine, but makes a very loud wailing sound? what could it be?

My Dirt devil Reaction does the same thing. So I took apart the motor and it was crammed w/ dirt then I decided to clean it out. next time I vacuumed my house it was a lot quieter. The guy from Jones sew and vac said baggless vacuum filters most of the time fail and let dirt get in the motor and start to scream. I read a lot of things saying Dirt devil Reaction is the most common vacuum to get dirt in the motor and start to wail then get worse & worse and get to the point where they start to almost scream. P.S if you let it scream for along time of use it will give the motor permanent damage and you will smell electrical burning, if that happens it will be too late so you will half to buy a new machine. To get to the motor you can take the dust contaner off and take the black filter then use your down stairs vacuum and get a small attachament and stick it in and vacuum it out,if not have two vacuums borrow one. If that doesn't clean it out you will need to take all the plastic appart and realy get to the motor good. If my advice dosn't help it is ok to still use it, it will just be loud until the motor of it is totally fried. This should work it worked on my Dirt devil Reaction. I'm sorry if it doesn't work out. :D

I have plugged in my dirt devil and it wont turn on. other things are plugged into the same plug in and they are working. is there a reset button on the vacuum?


Hello! The Easy Lite does not have a reset button. It does have a thermal protector that will automatically shut the vacuum down if it is overheated. This is usually caused by either a clog or a dirty filter or a combination of the two. Try these trouble shooting steps below.

1. Remove the hose completely from the vacuum from both ends.

2. Use a broom stick or something similar to gently loosen and remove any clogs from the hose.

3. Remove the dirt cup. Remove the red air director by turning 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Remove any hair or debris from the air director.

4. Remove the filter from vacuum base. Hold filter under running water to rinse. Allow 24 hours to air dry.

When the thermal protector is activated the vacuum must cool down before it will power back on. This can take up to an hour. Hope this helps! If you still have questions feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil.

Vacuum is clogged


Without specifics of Model, I can't tell you how. There are no clog ports in Dirt Devil vacuums. Usually a hose has to be removed to unclog.

Low Hose Suction, Hose is open.


thanks for the clarification.
since the hose in unclogged, the next place to look is in the body of the vacuum.
there is usually a tight turn in the dirt channel in the base. often you can see the clog if you remove the hose.

the next step is to dissasemble the base and look for the clog.

does the motor sound normal?
is the impeller turning at a normal fast rate?.

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.
