My kids get mine stuck all the time :(

Take the vacuum outside then:
Remove the hose at the bottom and see if there is any obstructions. Also shake the hose to make sure there is nothing in there as well or take it out side and make sure you can see light through it.

Let me know if this has helped or if I can help you with anything else,
Thanks

My Dyson DC33 isn't working correctly. It's not picking up like it used to. The brush isn't turning and the belt is fine. I've checked all filters, hoses and cleaned everything. Why is the brush not...


Is it possible that you have accidentally changed the brush control setting? I say this because it happened to me and I thought it had broken. I must have caught the dial with my foot! Here a link that might help:

It runs but not pick up dirt in cup


Hello! If the dirt is not entering into the dirt cup this could mean there is a clog in the vacuum or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Check that the brushes are still spinning. The vacuum has a brush-roll shut-off pedal on the right side of the cleaner if you are standing behind it. Below are simple instructions for checking your vacuum for clogs.

1. Remove the dirt cup. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the filter cartridge from dirt cup.
3. Separate the foam and cartridge filters. Wash foam filter under running. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.
4. Tap the excess dirt out of Hepa filter. Hepa filter may also be washed. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
5. Check the secondary filter by removing the filter cover from base. Rinse the foam filter under running water until it runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
6. The red baffle tube inside of the dirt cup is apart of the filtration of the vacuum and needs to be cleaned as well. Twist out the baffle tube by turning 1/4 turn clockwise. Remove any hair or debris wrapped around baffle tube. Baffle tube can be rinsed if needed. Allow to dry thoroughly.
7. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to loosen and remove any clogs from the main hose.
8. Remove the bottom plate and the brushes as instructed in the owner's manual. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to gently break up and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
9. Inspect the belt for damages, if the belt is broken replace the belt with a Genuine Hoover belt part 562633001 Flat Belt Nano Upright

If the filters are too dirty they may need to be replaced. With regular maintenance the filters should be replaced about once a year. Follow the links below to order replacement filters for your UH20020.

My dirt devil ultra vision won't pick up anything and the brush does not turn, also smells like rubber is burning. What should I do? I checked to see if it was clogged and the belt is not broken.


Sounds to me like the belt has gone or at least stretched so it is slipping on the spindle, take the brush out and check for hair or anything wound round where the belt grips...don't know this particular vac but usually belts are not too difficult to change. Get a new belt from your hardware shop

Low suction


Check the tube that leads down to the brush head for clogging as well as any motor or HEPA filters. If that still shows nothing, take the cover off the brush head (like you're changing the belt) and look for obstructions in there. Usually, if you have low suction on the accessory hose, the problem is with a motor filter, HEPA filter, or a clog where the hose goes into the unit. If you have good suction on the accessory hose but none on the floor, it's usually in the brush head (clog or broken belt) Good luck

Ive changed the filter and checked the hoses but vacuum doesnt pick up ...when its on the dust is being blown out the bottom of the vacuum....i took the canister off to test the suction its fine...also...


have you check the roller brush and drive belt? It may be your belt has broke or is slipping and therefore not turning the brush.
Turn on machine and power head see if brush is turning if it is put a small amount of pressure on the roller. If it stops turning replace the belt

My Dirt Devil ultra vision will not **** from base


Your belt is probably worn or broken. You need to replace the belt if you haven't recently. You can get the belts you need here:

My dirt devil ultra vision has NO suction on the hose and the thing practically eats belts. What could the problem be?


First of all, if it eats belts, the brush roll bearings have going - change the brush roll.
Second, check your filters and for blockages

Motor runs fine and hose not clogged will not pickup dirt


This may sound silly, but have you checked the belt? A lot of Eureka vacuums use the vac motor to run the brush, and if the brush is not running the vacuum won't pick up. Another thing to check is the condition of the fan blades.. if they get worn they will push air out of the exhaust ports, but not push enough air to pull the dirt into the vacuum bag. Another thing to check is the length of the bristles on the brush... you can change a lot of the bristle strips and save the cost of a whole brush roll.. All of these fixes are under $10.00 (Belt: $1-2, Brush Strip $3-6, Fan $5-10) at most places.

Doesn't pick up: No clog seen


Change your belt as it is most likely broken, it takes a standard 7,8,9 belt in a green package. Also, it is very important that you clean the foam filters in that unit at least once a month. Dirty intake filters will decrease your suction wich can lead to clogging.

Dirt devil ultra vision turbo model #087300


As it turns out I didn't clean the hose as well as I thought, The second time I fully removed the hose and found that where it bent was where my problem was. Along with a pen I found about three inches of dirt clogged in the hose. After removing the pen and dirt along with a new filter the vac works like new.
