Having problems with your Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum M085845Vacuum ?

I can no longer operate my Dirt Devil (bagless) because it has become too difficult to push. It's like driving with your brakes on. What should I do? Tito Christensen


Answers :

Is this a power drive? If so, replace your power drive belt.
Hi. Check out the little wheels on the bottom and make sure they are moving freely, chances are they have gotten clogged up with fibers etc. Use a pair of tweezers to clean them out. If they are basically worn they should be replaced. J.

Passat 2000 W Reg Had the rear brakes and disks changed then a month later had a front tyre replaced and as I drove off something went tinkle tinkle on the road (like someone had left a spanner).

I have a Series G Kirby Model G7D. The other day when I was vacuuming all of a sudden the TechDrive (Power Drive Assist N/D) pedal fell off. I see the hole that it goes into but when I put it in it's loose and falls out and doesn't control the power drive anymore. When I shook the vacuum I heard something rattling around inside the vacuum head. So I unscrewed the bottom and looked inside and found a small metal part labeled K3 on one side and T on the other side. It looks like it would fit

Which Kenmore vacuum cleaners are made by Panasonic? Are all of their direct drive machines made by Panasonic? We have a blue Hoover Windtunnel with the dirt sensor.
