Hello! The Easy Lite does not have a reset button. It does have a thermal protector that will automatically shut the vacuum down if it is overheated. This is usually caused by either a clog or a dirty filter or a combination of the two. Try these trouble shooting steps below.

1. Remove the hose completely from the vacuum from both ends.

2. Use a broom stick or something similar to gently loosen and remove any clogs from the hose.

3. Remove the dirt cup. Remove the red air director by turning 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Remove any hair or debris from the air director.

4. Remove the filter from vacuum base. Hold filter under running water to rinse. Allow 24 hours to air dry.

When the thermal protector is activated the vacuum must cool down before it will power back on. This can take up to an hour. Hope this helps! If you still have questions feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, or Twitter @DirtDevil.

SOURCE: i cant get the power brush to work

can you turn the brush by hand? if it turns real freely the belt is broke or the brush siezed up make sure there isn't any carpet strans wrapped around the ends of the brush otherwise the brush won't turn.if its the belt make sure you clean the motor shaft before you put on the new belt,the old rubber from the old belt will make the new belt run unevevly and break again..good luck

SOURCE: Dirt Devil Swivel Glide Platinum vacuum suction problem

Is the suction tubing in the head assembly clogged, is the belt broke? If the if the belt looks good the brush may be turned off and you may need to turn the brush switch on.

Dirt Devil 08130 will not run

I'm gonna guess that a wire has slipped out of the switch. Have seen it happen several times...sooo. The switches are no longer available, but you can build up the wire with solder and re-insert it into the switch and yer in business!

No power

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
