This generally happens if the hose system is clogged. No suction so the power head brush just kicks out the dirt and debris you're trying to pick up, and loose stuff that is currently in the hose system. If it has been doing this for quite a while, or has been used with blockage, the motor has to work harder and will eventually burn out, if there is no overheat shut of switch in the cleaner.
Check all parts of the hose system, from the power head to the tank. Clear all clogs. That should take care of the problem.
Another possibility is that the fan blades are broken or worn down. This would result in no suction even though the motor is running.

Vacuum is spewing dust out of the front vent! We have the Dirt Devil 12 amp bagless upright. Hoses are clear, brushes turn, everything fine except dirt blows OUT instead of going into canister. How


Hi! We actually don't recommend opening the motor compartment. It sounds like there may be a clog somewhere in the vacuum that you are unaware of. Please try following the steps below.

  • Remove the hose from the vacuum from both ends and check it for clogs.
  • Lay your vacuum face down, remove the bottom guard and brush-roll
  • Use a wooden spoon or something similar to help break up and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
  • Check and clean all the filters on the vacuum. If they are really dirty they may need to be replaced.
Hope this helps, if not we can be reached here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil

Why is my Dirt Devil Vacuum Hose lacking suction?


I have a Dyson and was having a similar problem some time back. I found out these bagless systems still have a filter that picks up the fine dust to keep it contained. Find out where yours is located and beat the dust out of it really good or just replace it.
Hope this helps.

Dust is blowing out the front vent.


If dirt and dust are blowing out anywhere that they shouldn't be, it's a sure sign that something's plugged farther on up the line. You'll need to disassemble the unit and clear the clog before anything will go through to the dirt cup. Also, as long as you're going to be taking it apart, check all the filters. This is a notoriously neglected part of bagless vacuums, and a very large part of why they start to lose the initial level of vacuum power. Clean the ones you can clean, replace the ones you can't. Walmart and Meijer's are a couple of places where you might find replacements.

Blowing air out and not vacuuming


Hello,
This usually means you have a blockage between the roller brush and the bag in the machine. You won't have any suction to pull dirt into the bag. The dirt will fall back onto the roller brush and out the front of the machine.

I hope this helps

It is blowing dust out of the motor


If this is a bagless machine, then the problem is that the really fine dust that you are picking up from your floor is so small that it is going through the filter and dust cup and building up in your vacuum motor. When enough build up collects, then it starts to blow it out the exhaust. I would bet a paper bagged machine for the long run. They are cleaner,

It sounds like either the bearings are seized, or there is debris in the assembly. You will probably need to dismantle the vacuum and clean everything out. It's not unusual for vacuum s to get really dirty and need periodic maintenance. If you have replaced the belt, then you have the skill to do the rest. Note that after re-assembly don't try to lubricate the bearings. They will only collect dirt faster.

Blows dust


i had this trouble and it turned out someone in my household had tossed out the filter with the rest of the dirt. you may have lost yours along the way since it's relatively easy to throw out.
