Upright dirtdevil roller jammed - how to remove square endcaps for cleaning

The pyramidal shaped end caps are just friction fit onto a shaft that runs through the brush roll. The shaft has serrations on both ends. Grab both pyramidal shaped end caps a wiggle them along with outward pressure. Once one is off, tap the shaft with hammer and the other end will come out too. There are bearing cups that will also come out. The bearings come out too with a 9mm socket tapping from the inside of the bearing cup. Grab the SMALLEST straight slot from an eye glass repair kit. The rubber seals are removable on the bearings. Remove them and wash clean. Or grab the wife's ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. Once all clean, align the end caps by assembling and pressing together while it is laying flat on the table. A tap from a hammer will more than likely be need for everything to seat together. Danny

Dirt Devil Featherlight vacuum with bag--wheel is loose/falls off because screw doesn't tighten/grip enough. Help!

All the parts are here, but the wheel and screws are obsolete. So if the screw holds the wheel and then loosens up, remove the screw, clean the threads and apply Red Loctite. It will stop the screw from loosening. If that doesn't work, get some Liquid Metal, mix it and press it into the hole, grease the threads WELL, and screw the screw in. Properly greased, you should be able to remove the screws if you need to. https://www.ereplacementparts.com/dirt-devil-085590-featherlite-upright-vacuum-parts-c-36976_37103_129641.html ..

Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Upright

Check the brush roll, are the bristles worn down? Check the belt also, if it is stretched, then it won't drive the brush roll like it should.

Belt keeps burning off

Be sure the brush roller spins freely. Tear apart the end caps and get the carpet string and hair out of it for better performance and longer belt life. Nothing much else it can be.

Dirt devil power stick lite edge to edge

See picture for details. It is unnecessary to remove the roller brush to clean it. The picture will show you how to do but not all vacuum cleaners will have a line where to cut. In this case, you can still use a utility knife just be more cautious where your cutting and not too deep. Make your cuts on both sides of the roller. 10_31_2021_7_39_47_am.jpegIf you still need to pullout the roller brush, don’t worry too much about pulling it out strait. Pull one end slightly, do the other end in the same way until it comes out.

I have a dirt devil featherlite bagged vacuum that is not picking up? I checked the belt and the brush and they are both moving, but not picking up dirt?

If the belt is over a year old replace it. Belts lose elasticity and will still spin but not clean the carpet.

On my brand new Dirt Devil Endura Reach, when i remove hose to attach the wand, dirt blows out from the place the hose was in. why?

Probably your vacuum needs to be serviced
You have to check filters, check hose if’s clogged, maybe you have clog in the base from the roller to the hole where you connect hose
