Question about Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum M085845Vacuum

Dirt devil Model # 084590

I recently replaced the belt in my vacuum, but noticed that the brush-roll wouldnt work. The manual instructed to check manually if the brush roll worked after replacing the belt and i found that it would not turn. I removed the brush rool from the vacuum and tried turning it but i failed. The belt is placed correctly and not causing any problem. I noticed 3 screws on the brush rolls and wasnt sure if i could unscrew that and clean the roll? Can someone advice what is going wrong. Why my vacuum is not working?

    Thanks Joe,
    I have cleaned as much as i could - dirt container. I have replaced the filter. And as i said i had unscrewed the 3 screws on the brush roll but wasnt able to dissemble the brush roll and clean it. Is that what u are talking about. or do i need to check any other parts. if possible can u be more specific as to what i should dissemble and check for cleaning.

    thanks again for your response.

It sounds like either the bearings are seized, or there is debris in the assembly. You will probably need to dismantle the vacuum and clean everything out. It's not unusual for vacuum s to get really dirty and need periodic maintenance. If you have replaced the belt, then you have the skill to do the rest. Note that after re-assembly don't try to lubricate the bearings. They will only collect dirt faster.

    You may have to do some prying to get the beater bar assembly out of it's mounting. They can be a little stubborn, especially after time. Generally, using a small flat-blade scewdriver will work. Remove the beater bar mounting screws on both sides of the beater/roller assembly and then pry the assembly out. It's possible that the bearings will be seized in which case the assembly will need to be replaced.

I have model#UD40350 total pet compact. The lower vacuum brushes don.t turn.


Hi! It sounds like you have a broken or stretched belt. The belt controls the brush roll. If you are using the vacuum on carpet, you need the brushes to spin to agitate the carpet fibers. Below are step-by-step instructions on how to replace your belt. I have also included a link to the instruction manual if needed.

1. Lay cleaner flat and flip to expose nozzle base. To remove nozzle guard, use Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws.
2. Lift and remove brush roll and dispose of old belt if you see one.
3. Slide belt (style 19) onto motor shaft.
4. Place new belt on area of brush roll without bristles.
5. With new belt in place, pull and slide brush roll into nozzle making sure that the brush roll end caps are in the correct orientation.
6. Replace all screws to replace nozzle guard.

I dont have a manual for the dirt devil vibe bagless cleaner. It's depositing dirt instead of picking it up. Is there a belt? i don't see one and maybe that's why


Information on your Dirt Devil Vibe Bagless Quick Vac M084500V can be found here:

http://www.dirtdevil.com/products/details.aspx?id=M084500V#parts

A link is available to download the manual as well as for replacement parts.

Yes this model has a belt to run the power brush; the manual has replacement instructions.

If dirst is being left behind it could also be a problem with a blockage, overfilled dirt cotnainer, or problem with the filter.

The brush doesn't rotate on the turbo tool. the belt on it isn't broken it just seems really stiff to turn by hand as well


The belt doesn't have to be broken to be bad. Even if it is stretched or worn it will not turn the brush roll properly. Here is the belt you need and the manual which has instructions:

How do I repalce the belt on Dirt Devil Swivel Glide upright vac?


Four screws hold the bottom plate in place. Turn the vac upside down and remove the screws that hold the cover(bottom plate) over the brush roll in place. Remove the plate and you are there.

Vacume brush won't turn but belt is not broken


The belt is probably stretched and won't drive the brush roll. Also check the brush roll, the ends should turn freely, if no, then replace it also.

Vacuum motor shaft too hot


Check the brush roll ends, will they turn easily or is one frozen. If so, you need to replace the brush roll. If the motor turns on, it and the belt are trying to turn the brush roll and can't. Also check the ends where the brush roll sits in and make sure it hasn't overheated and melted., If it did you will have to replave the base.

Changing a vaccum belt


Most of the Dirt Devils, turn the vac. over, remove the bottom plate, then you can get to the belt and brush roll. If the bottom plate doesn't come off, then from the top, there will be 2 or 3 screws to remove, then the top cover comes off to reveal the belt and brush roll.
