The brush roller is secured with elastic stop nuts. Clamp the nut at one end with a wrench or pliers and remove the nut from the opposite end. This will allow the shaft to be removed completely for cleaning

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!

Hello! The M085845 has an automatic height adjustment that cannot be manually changed. There is a roller lifter assembly that helps to raise and lower the nozzle depending on whether the vacuum is in the upright or reclined position. You do not have to make any adjustments to the vacuum when going from carpet to hard floors. The brushes will continue to spin at all times when the vacuum is in use. Hope this helps!

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!

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.

Hi! The model number you provided M085845 is a corded vacuum that does not need to be charged. If you have a battery operated product, the indicator light will begin to blink after being plugged in for 12-14 hours or more. Try unplugging the charger for a few minutes. Hope this is helpful. If you still have questions please reach back out to us here of Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil. Thanks!
