Having problems with your Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum M085845Vacuum ?

How do you adjust a self adjusting vacuum. It's too hard to push because it's too low


Answers :

Honestly you cant adjust it. There is nothing you can do to it to make it adjustable either.
\012
\012What I feel is the actual problem is maybe your belt is slipping on the brush roller and not making it easy to push anymore. a belt should be changed once per year, or if you are a pet lover, 2 times a year.
\012
\012let me know how this works for you.
\012Good luck.

On my hover U6616-900 the self propell work fine on the med setting on med height carpet, but when I go to low height carpet and height set on med the self propell does not pull the vacuum and it is hard to push. Also if I raise the height to the highest setting the self propell works correctly and appears to clen. Any ideas? S/N 090400184555, think this vacuum is maybe 5 years old and my wife uses it lots. Should I think of maybe a complete overhaul or a replacement at this time?


This is a typical problem you are describing. I would recommend you change the belts, this will resolve the "hard to push" and most likely resove your issues. based on the s/n given you maching was made on sept 2004. ... Hoover U6616-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have a Dirt Devil Vision self-propelled vacuum cleaner. Recently, the self-propelled feature is stuck in the backward mode, so it only goes backwards! I can get it to go forward if I push really hard (i guess it is good for a workout!). I try to turn off the propel feature completely, but it will not turn off. please help!

Bad smell after using my windtunnel for a couple of minutes i noticed an odd smell. i turned it over and checked, the belts are fine but i cleaned out the hair anyway. after doing that the self propel seems to struggle and it is hard to push. when i look through the window on the top i can see the brush spinning freely but then when i push it, it slows down dramatically and then picks up again. the suction is fine. what do you recommend?


It may be the roller bearings? ... Hoover U5450-900 Windtunnel Supreme Bagged Upright 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.


I can help you out only if you will let me know the front width of the machine. Alongwith the height which you wan't to give raise. KIndly give the width and elevation in cms. ... Hoover Self-Propelled WindTunnel Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum

Good Morning, A friend recently gave me her Hoover windtunnel model U630-900 vacuum. It is a self propelled vac. It comes on but is hard to push and will not really pick up any dust particles on the carpet. It has a funny smell also. I saw where one of you Q & A you said to check the roller brush. I thought maybe a belt may be off or something, but I do not have a manual to know where to begin checking. Could you tell what to check and also if there is anywhere online to download the manua

I have a self propelled Royal Dirt Devil vacuum model number 087900 and it goes backward fine but forward has to be pushed so hard it's impossible. Is this a switch? Do you know about how much the part would cost and can it be done by a beginner. We fix a lot of things ourselves but we aren't mechanics by no means. We put a brand new belt on it. I don't think it can be put on backwards and brush turns fine. Where is the switch? Use layman's terms.


You might try a new belt and/or brush roll. The brush roll is what helps pull a vacuum forward, the power drive helps, but if the brush isn't turning like it should, then it will hinder forward motion. The belt may look ok, but they stretch to the ... Vacuums

The suction is good, but it can't pick up most of the stuff on the floor. The hand held hose works very well, but it doesn't even pick up little fuzzies reliably when I push it along. And, the suction is too hard I think because it used to push easily and now I have to push really hard, even on flat carpet.


Check entire length of hose, including the piece in the power head, for clogs. Simply drop a marble in one end and allow it to roll out the other. If it doesn't, then the hose is clogged somewhere. ... Dyson DCO7 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Dyson DC07 has recently been service and was making a clattering noise and very hard to push. We have taken it back and he has changed the clutch mechanism under the base which has solved the clattering, but it is still really hard to push because of the suction. It is even lifting the carpet in one room. Can you tell me what the possible reasons for this could be? One thought we had was that the little rubber wheels on the bottom cover could have worn so the hoover is closer to the floor


On the sole plate you should have 5 little wheels, these are prone to jamming after a while. You should make sure these are not jammed in anyway.\012\012You can release these with a screwdriver, but be careful not to prize too hard as you ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
