Question about Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright with Inteli-Clean SystemVacuum

2 Answers

Dirt Devil upright vac

The handle release on the upright vac is not working--will not keep the vac
standing in its upright position. Is there a replacement piece available or should we seek local repair service?

It is a red upright 12 amp swivel glide model.

It could be a broken handle release, but it also could be the the clamps where the handle asm, and the base hold together came use, this will cause this problem on some Dirt Devils. The top has to come off to check this out.

Why will my Dirt devil easy steamer not releasing cleaning solustion


Hi! You may need to prime the trigger to get the solution flowing. To prime the trigger recline the handle and pump the trigger vigorously about 30 times. Power the cleaner on and hold the trigger in for 30 seconds. Be sure you are only using the Dirt Devil cleaning products intended for use with this machine. Using something other than the specified detergent can clog the lines that deliver the solution. If your cleaner still isn't dispensing you can take it in to a Dirt Devil authorized service center for repair. I have included a link where you may go to locate a service center near you. Hope this was helpful!

I dont have a manual for the dirt devil vibe bagless cleaner. It's depositing dirt instead of picking it up. Is there a belt? i don't see one and maybe that's why


Information on your Dirt Devil Vibe Bagless Quick Vac M084500V can be found here:

http://www.dirtdevil.com/products/details.aspx?id=M084500V#parts

A link is available to download the manual as well as for replacement parts.

Yes this model has a belt to run the power brush; the manual has replacement instructions.

If dirst is being left behind it could also be a problem with a blockage, overfilled dirt cotnainer, or problem with the filter.

Where is the release button so you dont have to vacum the floor with it standing straight up


There isn't one. Just pull the handle back and if needed gently put your foot on the front of the vac.

Dirt Devil vacuum Release pedal not working


take off the bottom like you are replacing the belt. You will find a little metal clip that controls the upright lock.  It may be lose or broken.
