Will try to help here.. first off.. regardless of the brand..upright vacs operate pretty much the same way.. I assume that when you plug it in and start it that the motor runs as well as the beater brush on the base.. from the sound of your symptoms and presuming everything runs.. you probably have a clogged line between the base and the motor.. If you unplug it first then flip it over so you can see the base bottom.look for recessed screws in the plastic bottom cover and back them out ( you will reuse them later so do not lose them) Once you get all the screws out..you should be able to remove the wheels and bottom cover.. You'll probably see a fair amount of debris there so you may want to do all this over a barrel... Next, with the bottom cover removed... you should see a path or hose that will channel all the dirt etc up to the bag or bucket...That is probably blocked up and you may need another vac and/or metal coat hanger cut open and formed into a pick to pry some of that material out of the line.. If you have access to another vacuum ..try using that to free up any lodged material in the tubing.. Hope that helps...

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

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

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:

No Wind Coming Out of Dirt Devil


The suction hole will never have wind coming out of it, it is for suction. To switch from floor to hose, turn the control knob labeled floor / hose.
