Having problems with your Dirt Devil Vacuums ?
I can't get the front cover over the bag back on
Do you have the correct paper bag for this machine. Sometimes if the wrong one is used it will not allow the cover to go back on. Or you might need to fold in the sides of the paper bag so that the door will close fully.

I am getting very little suction from the motor. The hose is clear, the bag new. When I open the bag cover, plug the hose in and turn the vacuum on, there is next to no suction from the motor. What do you think is wrong? How do I remove the cord retractor to get to the two screws that hold the back of the canopy cover?
Your problem is probably is you don't have a proper seal in your chasis. A vacuum has to be sealed tight or the air will leak out and the seal broken. Check around the whole body after the bag is in and check for any airflow noise. I could help more ... Vacuums
We have Nilfisk Tempest 1500W bagged cleaner. It just stopped working and I have taken off top cover and all wires/contacts look OK. But power still not getting through I assume. The retractable lead goes into base and cant get to this area. How do I check main lead or perhaps you provide details of serviceman. On North Shore, Auckland, NZ.

I have an older Kenmore vacuum cleaner - Model #3285590C, Serial #DG4117817. I can't seem to figure out how to get the motor cover off. 2 bolts in the front have been removed but the back has no visible bindings. It seems to be held from inside the compartment! Whats the catch here!

My Windsor Sensor XP12 says the bag is full when it's not. I have removed the hose, brush, and filter and cleaned everything. I can put a bag on without the cover and it works great. However, when I add the bag to the front cover and close the latch the right way, it does not work. I'm thinking that the cover is not seating the bag correctly over the hole, but I can't figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions?

When removing the canister bag, the plate and spring that it slides into popped out. When I put them back in, the bag full indicator is completely red. It is a new bag and filters. I think I am not getting the plate and spring back in the canister correctly. Any instructions or pictures showing proper insertion and configuration of these? I looked in the manual and the part is only shown while bag being inserted.

My Oreck is 10+ years old. The bag will not remain on the opening of the handle inside the bag. Dust goes into the cover rather than in the bag getting in the zipper which makes it very difficult to unzip the cover. Any suggestions?
Check and make sure bag collar is behind the two lips. if it isn't it will leak dust and make it hard to open. ... Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a Hoover U5111-900 that, every time I attempt to use it, shoots everything it should be sucking up, back out toward my feet. I have replaced the bag, pulled out lots of animal hair and such from the area behind the bag, and taken off all parts able to be removed without a screwdriver and pulled out all chunks of hair, dirt, etc. It still keeps shooting everything it should **** up out the back. Is there something I can remove to get the clog out if that's the problem? I'm scared I wil

Found the clog and cleaned it out. Heres the problem...now the power nozzle light comes on and the vacuum "on" is lite up red, but it will not come on. Checked the filters and the bag.

Bosch canister vac BSG81313. Took cover off to remove lots of hair, dirt etc from running without bag in place. Everything went back together OK, but cord reel spring went zip when cover was removed. How do I rewind the spring so there is tension when the cord is pulled out ? Wound cord back onto reel, but reel just clicks ever revolution etc...no tension when cord is pulled out of vac. Bob
The spring inside the hub of the cord wheel has escaped from the locking tab. You must completely dismantle the vacuum to access the cord wheel - take it out, reattach the spring and reassemble the unit. All you need is a phillips screwdriver, a pai ... Vacuums
Good day, I took off the cover on a proheat upright, to install the suction diverter flap. Guy at the shop told me I had to do this but I don't think it was really necessary. Anyway, I am having a real job getting the cover back on. The shampoo mix piston seems to be causing the problem seating the two halves correctly. I see no obvious "right: way to put the piston back in. can anybody help me. Thanks Richard
Hey Richard. Turn the shampoo mix dial so the spiral is all the way at the top when you are looking at it from underneath. then, you want the piston to seat in the top groove of the knob. You want the piston's end that jets out to fit in the space ... Vacuums

I have a window fan with two fans in it & I cannot get the cover or back off so I can clean it. I* have taken all the screws out that I can get to , but there are two clamps that I can't get off, I'm not sure why the clamps are there but they are on the side with the accordian extention. Please tell me how to get it apart - after 2 years it is really filthy!! Thank you, Janet
Remove all the screws, pry clips off that hold on the extensions, than fan will pull apart. The clips must be pried off. They will not break. Then remove screws holding in the fans and remove them as well. Fairly simple process. ... Vacuums
Wont re-assemble I took the bottom plate off to clean out the rotary bush and can not get the plate back on! I think it is the position of the roller but no matter which way I place it when i turn it , it flicks back into the place that means i cant put the plate back on!
Assuming you did not remove the brush roller to clean it and consequently did not reseat it, I am guessing that the bottom plate is not reinstalling as it should. On some uprights, the bottom plate hooks in at the front and is latched in place with c ... Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Hi, I have a Dirt Devil Model # M08100REDC. I desperately need to change the bag, but I don't see an obvious way to do it. I'm afraid to try pulling on the cloth tab thingy that's just below the handle, between the rubber ring that holds the bag on the vac, because it seems like stuff will fly everywhere from the force required to remove it, and I might not be able to get it back on there. Should I just pull on that cloth tab until the bag comes off? Thanks, Roberta
You can pull on the tab to remove the bag, but probably a better way is to gently pull on the rubber ring that attaches the bag to the back of the vacuum body. If you don't yank and ****, it should come off without spilling the dirt. There may also b ... Dirt Devil Classic M08100 Bagged Handheld Vacuum
