Sounds like there is a clog somwhere. Check the hose - you can undo the hose with a screwdriver but because of that bend use a pipe cleaner or a long wire to see if there is anything blocking the tube. Next check the dirt channels from the bottom of the hose on the Dirt Devil Vibe once the hose has been taken off. Check that the bottom part is clear and then tip the machine over, remove the bottom sole plate (4 screws, 2 at the front and 2 at the back near the rear wheels) to check the roller brush - sometimes if there is an obstruction in the dirt channel from the roller brush suction will not get through.

Dont forget however that there are two filters on the Dirt Devil Vibe. The top filter has to be unscrewed and then unlocked. Tap it a couple of times to dislodge any dirt and then lift out the second part filter at the top of the bin.

Dont forget to rate if this advice works. Thanks.

Why is my Dirt Devil Vacuum Hose lacking suction?


I have a Dyson and was having a similar problem some time back. I found out these bagless systems still have a filter that picks up the fine dust to keep it contained. Find out where yours is located and beat the dust out of it really good or just replace it.
Hope this helps.

Suction when I vaccum the floor but not in the hose


remove the filter from the dirt cup and try again,if you have suction the the filter is clogged.the other is the intake hose that goes into the top of the base where the clear tube is.disconnect the hose from the base tube and take a coat hanger and bend the end into a hook.open the litte flapper door and stick the hanger down in the tube and see if you can pull out a clog of dirt.last but not least,disconnect the top hose completelyfrom the vacuum and see if you can blow through it.if you can't then the flex top hose is clogged.open the little flapper door on the top of the base and turn on the vacuum,if the intake hose isn't clogged then you should have suction.that will tell you that the broblem is in the flex hose or the filter

Lost suction


TOSS IT and forget it! I have never used a hand vac that worked that was worth the effort of turning it on .... I suggest they are all junk ... I found very few vacuum cleaners ... actually **** especially anything made by dirt devil ... I do have a bagless Bissell 6579-2 that I purchased 4 years ago at walmart for $49 ... It outperforms any vacuum I've ever used, including my worthless Shop-Vac that I paid a lot more for ... this Bissell vac SUCKS ... It could **** the barnacles from a steamship!

Dirt Devil Upright Bagless Vibe Vacuum no longer sucks


Sounds like there's a clog in the long hose that connects to the dirt canister. Remove the hose completely and check for clogs. There is a blue plastic piece that the hose is attached to. You can remove it by taking out the two screws in the back, and the four screws behind the dirt canister. Once those are removed, the hose comes away from the vacuum with the blue plastic piece attached. That should allow you to check for clogs. If necessary, take the hose outside or a place that is well lit, so you can visually verify the absence of clogs.

No suction


Check the main filter cone - if it has a rip in it, then there won't be any suction in it, also clean it gently with a paint brush to get all of the dust out and check the back of the upright after the bin is taken out as sometimes there is dirt clogged at the back. Check the front of the sole plate i.e. where the roller brush is and check the dust channel behind this as it can get clogged. Due to the nature of this vacuum with the hose being located at the front of the floor head dirt can be trapped but most of all its the paper pleated cone filter that needs a good brushing. Hope that helps.
