I recently ( approx. 2-3 months ago ) purchased a dirt devil. Now it is not picking up properly. When I push vacuum forward it picks dirt up a little bit, when I pull it back all the dirt falls out of the bottom. I replaced the filter today and it has not solved my problem. I dont know where my warranty is. Can you please help me?
Hi sounds like your line is stopped up somewhere , check ur suction an make sure your brushes are spinning, if they are try a wire clothes hanger to the hose at the bottom hose to dislodge anything that mite be stuck ... Dirt Devil Vacuums
No suction I have the central vac type. It has no suction at the can. I pulled the hose going to the walls and tested there...and nothing. I removed the dirt can and checked the motor ...it is spinning but does not feel like any suction. I checked the exhaust and it is pushing strong air out. I also cleaned the filter and still nothing. Is there a relay or something that would cause only exhaust air. I emptied the can of dirt and put it back together and have absolutely no air.....hear the motor
On some units there is a screen that protects the impeller of the motor. If this gets sealed off with debris then it is like putting a potato in the tail pipe of a car. Taking the top off the unit reveals the motor. DO UN-PLUG the unit first from th ... Electrolux Central Vacuum

Hi, I have a Dirt Devil Model # M08100REDC. I desperately need to change the bag, but I don't see an obvious way to do it. I'm afraid to try pulling on the cloth tab thingy that's just below the handle, between the rubber ring that holds the bag on the vac, because it seems like stuff will fly everywhere from the force required to remove it, and I might not be able to get it back on there. Should I just pull on that cloth tab until the bag comes off? Thanks, Roberta
You can pull on the tab to remove the bag, but probably a better way is to gently pull on the rubber ring that attaches the bag to the back of the vacuum body. If you don't yank and ****, it should come off without spilling the dirt. There may also b ... Dirt Devil Classic M08100 Bagged Handheld Vacuum

When i am vacuuming my carpet....it sucks the dirt up when i am pushing it forward, but when i pull it back, the dirt comes back out on the carpet
This is due to a loss of suction. The roller brush sweeps the dirt to the hose area, but with no suction, when you pull the vacuum back, the brush just kicks the dirt back out. This is most likely due to a clog in part of the hose system.\015 ... Vacuums
Hoover UH70120 WindTunnel TSeries problems with the cord. im a tech savy guy and have been trying to fix a cord after it was pulled to far out and now wont auto retract, but just cant find a way to pull the cord rewind mechanism out to work on it. Any advice
You will probably have to replace the cord winding mechanism. I have never had any luck trying to repair one. Cord retracters are great when they work but it seems like they always go bad before too long. On many units you can't even replace the cord ...

Bosch canister vac BSG81313. Took cover off to remove lots of hair, dirt etc from running without bag in place. Everything went back together OK, but cord reel spring went zip when cover was removed. How do I rewind the spring so there is tension when the cord is pulled out ? Wound cord back onto reel, but reel just clicks ever revolution etc...no tension when cord is pulled out of vac. Bob
The spring inside the hub of the cord wheel has escaped from the locking tab. You must completely dismantle the vacuum to access the cord wheel - take it out, reattach the spring and reassemble the unit. All you need is a phillips screwdriver, a pai ... Vacuums

Hello- my motor filter is becoming clogged every time i use it. i have removed and washed it--I thought maybe i didn't have the lid closed tight enough but for some reason dirt is pouring into the filter, it seems that some of the dirt suctioned is actually being pulled into the filter intead of the canister
One way or another, dirty air is by-passing the cyclone. My best guess is that when you emptied the clear bin, a seal has dropped out (or become displaced) and the base of the clear bin is no longer sealing properly against the bottom of the cy ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Hoover Savvy The red light for the dirt finder is on when pushing forward and the green light is on when pulling it back. This happens all the time. It's like the dirt finder sensor isn't working right. It seems to be picking up good and we keep the filter clean.

I have a Hoover U5111-900 that, every time I attempt to use it, shoots everything it should be sucking up, back out toward my feet. I have replaced the bag, pulled out lots of animal hair and such from the area behind the bag, and taken off all parts able to be removed without a screwdriver and pulled out all chunks of hair, dirt, etc. It still keeps shooting everything it should **** up out the back. Is there something I can remove to get the clog out if that's the problem? I'm scared I wil
