Having problems with your Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum M085845Vacuum ?

Automatic height adjuster is not working,it grabs carpet and stops roller

Answers :

Hi There,

Actually usually when this happens, it's usually the belt that causes the brush to stop and not the height adjustment. What happens is, over time the belt will get hot, which causes the belt to stretch. Once the belt stretches out, it becomes too long, and will stop the brush from spinning when it feels any resistance to the brushes. This is most likely why the brush is stopping when you put it down on the carpet.

I'm pretty confident that if you replace the belt on your vacuum, this should fix the problem of your brush stopping when it hits the carpeting.

Here's a link to the owners manual for your vacuum that will explain step by step how to replace the belt:

I have a Dirt Devil M088400 - Vision Turbo Vacuum. A spring fell from the bottom and the carpet height adjust isn't working. The rollers under the unit won't stay in place either. Can you tell me how to put the carpet height adjust back together?

Dirt devil vacuum cleaner--trouble vacuuming dirt and pet hair on carpeting --is the problem with the spinning brush which contacts the floor,  not contacting the carpeting??  I thought (when I bought this vacuum) that the aforementioned brush was adjustable to various heights of carpeting.  Sometimes, it seems like nothing is being vacuumed up --unless I have just put a new bag on the vacuum...

On our new carpet (which is not that thick but thicker than the old) I can't set the carpet thickness high enough. The suction really grabs the carpet and bogs down my self-propelled wind-tunnel Hoover. I then have to push down on the handle to tilt the front up. The thickness setting is as high as it will go. Is there some way that I can further adjust this. The machine is about eight years old.

With cleaning carpets with the Stowaway when the head gets a blockage it makes a high pitched whining sound and requires unblocking - then works fine. Now when vacuuming the head always makes the same sound when the head is against the carpet. you can also see that the rollers are slow or stopped. We have pulled the Stowaway virtually completely apart and checked for blockages as well as washed the filter and no difference. Any ideas?
