    your brush roller isn't turning ,its siezed up.take the bottom off and pull the brush roller out.theres probably hair and carpet strands wrapped arond the ends of it.see if you can take the ends off its probably loaded with stuff.after you get the roller cleaned see if the roller turns freely if not then you need a new roller.clean the old rubber off the motor shaft before replacing it with the new one or it on't last very long.the roller is whats causing your belts to burn up

Dirt Devil easy lite vacuum makes pop or a thunk and then the suction is bad the clog lite does not come on I know it works


Hi there! Sounds like that noise may have been your belt popping or breaking. Try checking the belt on the vacuum. If it has broken, replace with a Dirt Devil style 15 belt. Below is a link where you may go to purchase the belt if needed. Thanks!

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:
