Having problems with your Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum M085845Vacuum ?

Very hard to push, the automatic height adjustment seems to be stuck in low postition


Answers :

I'm growing tired of telling everyone what a piece of **** this vacuum is, I think you'll be the last! There is a design flaw that forces the wheels down according to how low you are holding the handle. Even when holding it at a normal operating height it is too low by design, causing difficult operation and finally multiple belt breaks! see my other posts about how to fix this, although it may not be worth your time!
Open the machine like your going to replace the belt. Check for any obstructions under the front wheel height assemblys.You may have some string around the wheels and such.

How is the V-belt tension adjusted (Hoover Model U6439-900)or how do I know if the tension is correct? There seems to be a lot of "play" in the belt and I'm wondering if that is the reason the brush roll only turns as the wheels turn, regardless of the carpet height setting. And yes, the brush roll is set for carpet, not hard floor. Or is the cause of the problem something other than the V-belt? A new flat belt was installed when the machine was professionally serviced so I assume (?) that was a

There are two ways the belt has no tension: (1) when the handle is upright, a mechanical lever takes the drive tension off the belt, and (2) the brush roll lever setting you described.

I have a Dyson all-floor model (not the ball). I recently replaced my carpet to a Frieze. Since replacing the carpet, the Dyson is extremely hard to push. It almost forms a "seal" with the carpet. Seems to work fine on Berber carpet and laminate floor. My husband has checked to make sure the brushes are working, hoses are not clogged and belts are OK. I've had it for about a year. It is virutally impossible to push on the new carpet. Any ideas?
