Question about Dirt Devil Vacuums
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...
