Here is the link to the detailed instructions for belt changing. When you take the brushroll out, make sure that the brushroll spins freely. If it doesn't it will burn up your belts and needs to be replaced.

I have a dirt devil M08100RED and don't know how to install the attachments. How do I use the hose attachment?


To use the hose attachment, first lift the black plug (above the nozzle side of the vacuum). Next remove the belt from the motor shaft using the belt lifter. Hook the belt on the left side of the shaft and rotate clockwise. Pull the belt gently towards you. See picture 6 (and Part A) of the manual; I've provided the link below. The belt lifter was included if your vacuum came with the attachments. If you need one, that is part 1880262000.

Once the belt is removed, depress the spring clip on the end of the hose. Align the spring clip with groove at the bottom of the opening. Line up the hose and push it into the cavity where the belt was. Pull gently to ensure that the hose is secured to the vacuum.

The manual for the Dirt Devil M08100RED is available on the product site: http://dirtdevil.com/products/details/m08100red/classic-hand-vac/ . The direct link is http://dirtdevil.com/file/1239/ . You can purchase accessories and parts from the manufacturer. Scroll down on the product page and click on the Parts link.

I hope this helps.

My vaccuum has no more suction


There is no drive belt on a progressive drive vacuum. It is direct drive meaning it is attached via the motor. No vacuum means no air flow somewhere in the unit. Torn bag,Wrong bag, pluged filter under bag.Make sure the opening in the bag is the correct size,too big and it will not seal. Make sure when you close the housing it seals also. No housing seal no vacuum. Kenmore vacuums tend to be plastic housings. Cracks are comon in the wheel housing area. Check there first. Plastic expoxy will work with this fix if so needed.

My purple proggesive kenmore upright motor works but beater not beating help thank you


I just had the same problem - reset button didn't trip - cleaned the roller - ultimately found there is an override switch at the point where the hose attaches to the base of the vacuum - it disables the roller when you use the attachments. The hose had become loose (but not disconnected) enough to trip the switch. An easy fix after alot of tinkering... p.s. All those "experts" that said to change a belt obviously don't understand that this model is beltless...

?, the belt is off my Kirby


Get a new belt, put it on the center of the brush roll, put the plate back on, tuen the big knob on the front, it will catch the belt, turn it until it locks in place, put the noozle on the vac, lock it down, turn the knob in the opposite direction and it will put it on the pulley.

Kirby Ultimate G will not suck with main brush head attachment


You may need a new belt, it may have stretched enough so it isn't turning the brush roll anymore.

Determine if the wheels spin freely or if there is resistance. Sounds like you need a replacement belt for the drive. If you need help with installation, let me know.

I also have found that using 1/3rd of the amount of cleaning solution works better than what is recommended. AND, put water in the tank and THEN add the solution - adding water last creates tons of bubbles! Good Luck!
