On the bottom you will see 4 screws.take them out and the bottom plate will come off.before you put the new belt on look at the motor shaft.if you see old rubber on it you need to clean it off or your new belt won't last very long

How do i clean canister of dirt devil featherlight bagless caniter vacuum


Hi there! To clean the canister or dirt cup, first remove the dirt cup from the vacuum. Twist off the dirt cup lid. Remove the pleated filter and empty the dirt cup. Tap the filter against the trash can until the dirt stops falling. If the filter is really dirty it may need to be replaced. The filter should be replaced every 6 months. I have included a link where you may go to purchase a replacement filter if needed.

Thanks! Hope this helps!

Brush bar can't spin


Hi There,

Actually I just answered a question almost identical to yours! The belt on his model continiously snapped also.

I walked him through how to check the problem, and he was able to get his vacuum fixed. It really sounds to me like your brush roller has gone bad as well.

Vacuum making loud noise


It could be 1 of 3 things:

1. The belt2_bing.gif that drives the beater bar. (Inexpensive)

2. An impeller that has a broken wing or 2, throwing it off balance. (Expensive)

3. Or, the bearings in the motor are going out. (Expensive)

Hope this helps,

Jim

Belt slips off motorshaft


It could be an old belt even if the upright is new. Check that the beater bar is not clogged with dust or threads and find a replacement belt for this vacuum and fit it to see if there is any difference. If not, then there's a problem with the vac and it should be returned.

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.

Are you talking about the beater bar? If so, you probably have a broken belt
