Hi there! The vacuum is equipped with a thermal protector sensor that will automatically shut the motor down if it reaches a certain temperature. This is usually caused by either a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Make sure you check both the hoses for clogs and clean all filters properly. If a filter is really dirty it may be time to replace it. Hope this was helpful!

It sounds like you have a blockage somewhere. The brush roll will still gather material, but if the suction is insufficient, it will spit it back out eventually. Take the bag out and check at the connection for blockage. When you are sure it's clear, put in a new bag and turn the machine on. The bag should inflate rapidly. If it does not, check elswhere for blockage.

Check that the filters are completely clear and not blocked - especially the top filter on top of the bin assembly. If its clogged completely brush it free of dirt and then reassemble. Make sure the inner cone filter and mesh filter is also completely clean. Then check the hose and main dust channel - something is clogged that makes this machine overheat and stop working - and often with this model (Hoover also make it in the UK under the Alyx name) its down to clogged filters or small clogs of dust in the dust channels. 
Don't forget to rate, thanks.

SOURCE: how to put the belt on the deit devil breeze

Here is a detailed discription on how to change your belt. Turn the machine compleatly upside down and place head on a flat surface. There are 4 screws to take out, then remove the base plate. Near the back of the channel the belt rides in you will see a stright silver shaft. Place the new belt over that shaft. The put the brush roller through the belt, so the belt is in the notched out section of the brush roller. Grab both ends of the brush roller and pull till the brush roller is back in it's origial spot on the base of the vacuum. Turn the brush roller 3 compleat turns backwards, then do the same forward to seat the belt. Put back on the base plate and put back the 4 screws. You are now ready to vacuum.

My dirt devil breeze turbo shut off while I was vacuuming. I've checked 3 outlets and nothing happened


It may have overheated from a restriction or clog. If so it will come back on after it cools down.

Why dirt devil breeze no power?


Hello! The Breeze is equipped with a thermal protector that will cause the vacuum to automatically shut off when it is overheated. This is most likely caused by a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. When the thermal protector is activated the vacuum will need to cool down before it will power back on. This can take up to an hour. Try these quick steps below to prevent the vacuum from shutting off again.

1. Twist off the end to the lower hose that connects to the brushes.
2. Use a wooden spoon to gently looses and remove any blockages in the lower hose.
3. Remove the pleated filter from the dirt cup. Tap the filter firmly against a trash can until the dirt stops falling. The filter should be replaced every 6 months.

I have included a link where you may go to purchase the F1 filter for your vacuum. If you still have questions please feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil, or Twitter @DirtDevil. Thanks! F1 HEPA Filter

Hi Cassidy. You are probably right about the motor overheating. The usual cause for overheating is a clog some where on the bottom of the machine. Check for anything that could be blocking the dirt fro going into the bag. Hope this helps Chris

My dirt devil just did the same thing to me. I cleaned the filter super good, checked all the hoses for clogs and the brush for tangled strings. Plugged it in and it worked! Yay!!! Hope this works for you too. Linda
