Question about Dirt Devil Vacuums
I bought this dirt devil 3 in 1 three weeks ago. Yesterday it suddenly made a squeeck sound an since then it sounds totally different than it was before. It is still working but do not suck strong as before. Is it normal that it is getting warm after I use it for a short period?
SOURCE: suction problem
check the intake hose at the bottom it may be clogged.try blowing into the long hose if you can't blow through it then you have a clog somewhere between the long hose and your intake hose at the bottom.the intake hose is the somewhat clear hose that comes up from behind the base at the bottom.you will see it on the backside

the dirt devil featherlight has a automatic height adjustment for carpet and bare floors.check the wheels and see if there is something wrapped up around the wheels

take the belt off again you will see burnt rubber from the old belt stuck to the motor shaft.you can take a fine piece of emery cloth and clean the shaft down to its polished finish.always good to do this after each belt.check the brush roller and see if there are any signsd of plastic melted.make sure it turns freely if not the brush roller might be siezing uo on youhave you cleaned the hepa filter?does it smell like wires burning or rubber.with it unlugged take it apart to the motor and take a fine iece of emery cloth and go over the motor armature .then try it again.you can take all the filters out and run it without the filters.that will help you narrow it down.please leave feedback
