Having problems with your Dirt Devil Vision VI Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

My vacumn cleaner turns off automatically after about 15 mins

\015 Whenever I use my vacuum cleaner it turns off automatically after every 15 mins or so and then I have to unplug the cord from the power outlet, let it stand for an hour or so and then it starts working again. I make sure that the filter is clean and there are no trappings at the mouth of the suction. Is there a part that I need to replace or fix?\015

Answers :

Is the beater bar spinning freely in its bushings/bearings? If not it could be causing excess drag and overheating the motor. Remove this and clean/lubricate.
\015\012I agree with making sure all vents are clear as well.
Are all the air holes for cooling the motor clear no dust in the try using the suction hose to clear them . the motor is getting hot so check all your filters too .if you carry on using the motor windings could burn out.hope this helps.farr64

My vacuum cleaner works, all but the "foot". It turns off automatically and the light comes on telling me to "check brushroll". I've done this and removed all hair, strings, etc. It still turns off automatically, while the main vacuum and hose remain on. What else can I do?

Brushes won't turn on the bissell proheat 2X steam cleaner-I don't have the manual to see if there is a button I am not pushing to turn on the brushes. Also, do you put the clean water in the "bladder" in the tank? Sorry I am so dumb-this cleaner was given to me with no manual and I can't figure it out. There is a small tank on the bottom at the back of the machine, that says "formula here" and I don't know if that is where the cleaner goes or what that is for. The machine turns on just fine
