Having problems with your Dirt Devil Vacuums ?

Stopped working while using..is there a reset button?


Answers :

There is no reset. There is a thermostat on the motor that shuts down the motor when it gets over heated. Check your filters and bag if you have the bagged type or check your filters and empty the dirt cup if you have the baggless type. Make sure there is no obstruction in the duct hose and the main hose. Check for anything that will not let the air move freely. If you can't get it to operate properly, take it to the shop.

Nothing is stuck, it just made several passes at some point overnight without successfully getting to the receptacle due to heavy litter. The box was clear and moving before we went to bed. This morning the lights were flashing. I unplugged, emptied, etc and it will not work. what now? It does not have the reset button at the receptacle button that the old models did. Is there one?

I came back about halfway thru my movie and wanted to skip scenes but the remote did not work. So I tried the NEXT button on the machine.
