i think your talking about the motor spindel,,(the little metal bit?) if the motor is that hot its going to burn out soon, check that the brush is free to turn if its tight free it off its full of grit or fluff also check that the motor turns freely

Plastic to plastic wears fast. I have repaired this problem by inserting small wooden dowels between the splits in the axles.( I have one of these machines in my home) Lubricate the axles with a non-petroleum grease afterward. I use Superlube available in most auto parts stores.

There is probably a second or third filter (besides the canister) that needs to be cleaned.
I doubt that it's rotating the wrong direction.

A few weeks ago I ran into the same problem, virtually no suction. First I replaced the bad belt (make sure you fit it right or it'll destroy the belt, luckily I bought 2!) and while the vacuum sounded more "alive" it didn't seem to pick up anything any better. The final solution was taking apart the entire intake port section down to the motor and getting the collection tube. It was filled with junk all the way up. I spent over an hour clearing out gunk and animal fur throughout the tubing. Putting it back together was a cinche because the entire vacuum uses one screw type universally. The whole process was pretty intuitive and its clear it's meant to be taken apart for just this purpose.

Can you check for the EXACT model #? The production day span from 2004 to current. It's hard to tell from the stock photo on the upper left side of the screen. M084600

=========== You should do these steps outdoor.
Wear protective gloves and mask.
Turn the unit so the brush is facing the celling.
Take a razor blade and clear out any hair trip
It may take up to 5 to 10 minutes to undo the trapped hair and dirt.
***** ID the rotation of the brush by power on the vacuum just for few second. ===
DO NOT rule out a broken drive belt. Damaged /old air filter and belt are very common on the Dirt Devil vac. Style 15 Belt Part Number: 1SN0220001 === Link HERE for the parts order page.
The vacuum inlet (suction) is on the opposite side of the drive belt.
There will be obstruction in the bended tube on the base unit.
Take your time to clean it.
This is a 1/2 to one hour job for DO IT YOURSELF-ER. Please keep me posted on the fix via email.

There isn't one. Just pull the handle back and if needed gently put your foot on the front of the vac.

The dirt tube is clogged. You will have to clear it to get your machine to work.
