Almost always you have a blockage somewhere. It is not always easy to get to each and every nook and cranny of the suction passageways.
Typically some piece is blocking, and that means reduced air flow, which means overheated motor... Do not run for long with this blockage.
Think in terms of air flow, your answer will likely be there.

Cheers,
Doc

The brush is not turning on the dirt devil power max and not sucking up any dirt.


The belt is probably broken or off the pulley. These will build up hair and rug fiber around d the moving parts and force the belt off. I don't know the exact access on this model but a cover will need to be removed. Some models require Phillips screw removal of complete upper or lower cover. Be sure to clean out all debris and re install or replace belt with new.

Why doesn't my dirt devil vision turbo have any suction through the hose yet there's good suction at the hose connection to the canister?


The hose is probably blocked. If possible reverse it (put the intake of the hose on the canister connection) that should suck out the obstruction. If that fails try to carefully push a broom handle into the hose, preferably from the end that connects to the canister. Put the hose back on normally and see what happens.

My Dirt Devil ultra vision will not **** from base


Your belt is probably worn or broken. You need to replace the belt if you haven't recently. You can get the belts you need here:

Lost suction


TOSS IT and forget it! I have never used a hand vac that worked that was worth the effort of turning it on .... I suggest they are all junk ... I found very few vacuum cleaners ... actually **** especially anything made by dirt devil ... I do have a bagless Bissell 6579-2 that I purchased 4 years ago at walmart for $49 ... It outperforms any vacuum I've ever used, including my worthless Shop-Vac that I paid a lot more for ... this Bissell vac SUCKS ... It could **** the barnacles from a steamship!

Cleaner is not picking up debris from pool bottom


Have you check the filter/baskets to make sure that you don't have a large piece of debris that is preventing suctions? You will also want to check each section on the vaccum systematically to make sure that there are not cracks or noticable areas of damage that would prevent the pool cleaner from working. Is is not moving at all or just not sucking properly? Can you give me more details as to what it, exactly, it is doing?
