Question about Dirt Devil M086700 Vision Bagless Upright Vacuum
My wife asked me to fix the vaccum but I think someone lost a gasket or two somewhere--good suction from the motor and poor suction to output; filter is not clogged and can see light looking from inside BUT there is suction leak all along the top of the plastic "dustbin" the filter sits in. My thought is there should be some kind of gasket to seal this so all the suction isn't leaking out. Is there a gasket on top or on the bottom of the clear dust collector--or maybe the leaking means the filter IS clogged and needs to be changed??? Mike MOser
We had the same problem. We lost the dirt container lid. I called Dirt Devil Customer Support at 1-800-321-1134 and explained my problem. They asked for the Model number, the mfg code, and the factory letter. A replacement lid costs $2.59, but they are sending it to me via regular mail without charge for the part and with no charge for the postage. Stuff like this doesn't happen often.

These new fangled Hepa filters get clogged up pretty easy and when there's no place for an outlet of air there is no suction going into the clear basket.
You're right. Best way to clean these things is to bang them upside down outside on some concrete or another hard surface until there is no more dust coming out. You can replace them and eventually it comes to that.
The hose that leads up from the suction bed housing has a tight turn in the bottom area and this can collect something large that then collects smaller and smaller. The hose can be disconnected from the bottom unit and it may take a straightened coat hanger to clear out whatever may or may not be in there.
To be sure you have a tight seal just see that the plastic can is seated firmly at the bottom and the top locks in place. The gasket does its job once there is good airflow and the vacuum will do the rest.
Any questions or need for clarification just comment back to me below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
