You have a blocked vacuum hose take hose off and out side. Push the garden hose from one end to the other, this will push out the blockage

Vacuum doesn't pick-up dirt


It's probably not picking up because the belt is worn and stretched. With a new belt it will pick up a lot better. Here is the belts you need:

I have a dirt devil featherlite plus and all of the sudden it started pushing hard and smells hot. I cleaned the roller, changed the bag, checked the belt. The belt is a little wore, but not bad.


If it is pushing hard then you still have a belt problem. It may not be broken but the belt is stretched out too long and will not turn the roller brush fast enough to make it push easy.

Dirt Devil Featherlite not picking up


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.
