Upright dirtdevil roller jammed - how to remove square endcaps for cleaning
The pyramidal shaped end caps are just friction fit onto a shaft that runs through the brush roll. The shaft has serrations on both ends.
Grab both pyramidal shaped end caps a wiggle them along with outward pressure. Once one is off, tap the shaft with hammer and the other end will come out too. There are bearing cups that will also come out.

Where is the reset button on the dirt devil featherlite
Hello! There is no reset button on the vacuum. It is equipped with a thermal protector sensor that will automatically shut the vacuum down when it is overheated. A vacuum usually overheats if there is a clog or if the filter needs to be cleaned or replaced.
To check for a clog twist the lower hose off where it connects to the brushes. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to break up and remove any clogs in the lower hose.
Remove the filter from the dirt cup. Tap the filter firmly against the trash can until debris stops falling. If the filter is really dirty it may need to be replaced. I have included a link that you may follow to purchase a replacement filter if needed. Your vacuum will turn back on after it cools down, this can take up to an hour. Hope this was helpful!

Do my Dirt Devil have a restart button it just stop running
Hi! No the vacuum doesn't have a restart button, but it does have a thermal protector that will shut the vacuum down when it is overheated. If your dirt cup was too full this will activate the thermal protector sensor. Clogs and dirty filters can cause this as well. We recommend emptying the dirt cup, tapping out the filter and checking the hose for clogs. The vacuum will come back on usually within 45 minutes to an hour. Hope this helps.
