Are the filters clean? Is the brush roll turning? Otherwise check the dirt inlet by the brush roll for a clog. Pull the hose off from the bottom, is there suction there? If there is, then the problem is below where the hose is pullged into. If no suction, then there is a clog in the hose, take it off, (if it comes off completely), drop something like a heavy marble down the hose and see if it comes out or not.

I have a hoover Dust Manager DM6200. actually it is my friend's. She said it wasn't working well, so I took a look. It wasn't picking up, and seemed to be spreading dirt in fact. I emptied...


Hey Julie,

Hopefully we will get this solved together.

To me, this problem sounds like either the filters are choked up and cannot breathe, OR.... the bagless cannister is not quite sitting in the machine properly.
Honestly, I am more leaning towards the cannister not quite in properly, that is assuming that everything is out of the suction hose.

Start with the process of elimination. Remove and clean the filters with a paint brush or other brush. Get as much dirt and debris off of them as you can and replace them into the machine.
Turn on the machine, and using only the hose attachment, feel if the suction is there. If not, try a re-alignment of the cannister and check the hose. a small coin or marble running through the hose will tell you if there is still a blockage in there.
Where the attachment hose connects to the bottom of the machine could also be blocked up as well. This will also give the same effect of the dirt blowing out the bottom of the machine.

Lastly, it is also quite possible that the belt has stretched or worn out. This too will contribute to it not picking up.
Let me know if this helps, and we will go from there.
Good luck,
Mark

slide your garden hose up the length of the tubing after laying the tubing flat in a straight line. If the blockage is in the hose this will detect it. It may be necessary to hook the blockage out with a length of wire.

The vacuum cleaner does not pick up anything from carpet. It does not even pick up pieces of thread laying on carpet. On tile floors it blows dirt away instead of picking it up. I've tried all the settings...


Sounds like there is a clog..

Usually its in the hose - look closely.. Stretch the hose out straight and look in there good..

Or a clog could be in the vac close to where the hose conects to the vac on either end..

This is most case scenario with these types of vacs..

I hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

My dirt devil vacuum won't suck up anything and its brand new!!


Take the vac bag off and turn on the vac , it should blow air out, if not unclogg the hose where the bag connects, also when you check the roller and belt, unclog the flex hose(located inside base near roller assembly) that sucks up the dirt. As long as the motor works fine the rest is just maint.
