Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I have had my Dirt Devil for just less than a year. I bought it in September, '07. Last week I was using it and it suddenly stopped running. I can see no reason why. I need to find a nearby repair station. I cannot afford to buy another one. I bought it at Kmart, it was on sale for $49.97.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. I can see your problem but if it is anything more than a new belt or brushroll, it would be cheaper to buy as new one because the price of the part plus the labor fee will be more than the price of a new vacuum or you can buy a good used one from your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. If it is the motor then definitely buy a new vacuum. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

My dirt devil breeze turbo shut off while I was vacuuming. I've checked 3 outlets and nothing happened


It may have overheated from a restriction or clog. If so it will come back on after it cools down.

Hand vac doesn't hold power


Mostly likely it needs a new power pack, but you could try cleaning off the contacts first. Use a pencil eraser and clean the metal power contact on the charging unit and the vacuum. Then charge it over night. If that doesn't help, charge the power pack.

Why does my dirt devil swerve get really hot?


Hello! Sounds like your vacuum may be overheating. This is usually caused by either a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned. Please try the steps below to get your vacuum back up and running.

1. Remove the hose from both ends by pressing the release buttons.
2. Use a broom stick or something similar to gently loosen and remove any clogs from the hose.
3. Remove the nozzle from the cleaner by pressing the release button and pulling the nozzle from the body.
4. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen up and remove any clogs from the nozzle or the lower tube.
5. Remove the dirt cup. Lift open the lid to the dirt cup.
6. Remove the filter from dirt cup. Remove the filter frame from dirt cup. Hold filter under running water to rinse. Allow 24 hours to air dry before replacing.
7. Check the exhaust filter by twisting off the filter cover.
8. If dirty, the exhaust filter can be washed as well. Hold filter under running water to rinse. Allow 24 hours to air dry.

This should stop the vacuum from overheating. If not please reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil. Thanks!

Belt keeps coming off


I believe there is something wrong with the roller, could be the barrings or the end caps are warped. Try this, take the roller out and with each hand on each end hold the roller and try to spin the roller with your thumb. If it does not spin freely the problem is the roller.

Greetings jettin_us,

Normally you can contact the store you purchased the unit at, and if you paid with anything other than cash, they may be able to retrieve your receipt for you.

Once you get the receipt, if you still fall inside your 1year factory warranty, I would suggest contacting Dirt Devil for further assistance. Their contact number is 800-321-1134.

I hope this helps!

I have always bought dirt devils and this last on that I got is bad it dose not clean by the base boards like the others it dose not pickup stuff from the floor like the others, when you add one of the attachments to it that takes away from the sucking power and that power brush is a joke. I used it twice and it broke. I am not happy with this one at all.I have thought real hard about changing to a differant brand.I don't know what happened but something has to change.
thank you for your time atti
