The fact is that the "bagless bandwagon" is powered by some excellent marketing that conceals what is often poor technology. In your case, the filter blocks because it's doing the job that a bag would do in a bagged machine (catching the dust), and then the machine overheats because the flow of cooling air to the motor is restricted. The only solution (for this machine) is to keep buying new filters - the only permanent solution is to buy a different vacuum cleaner. And my advice is to buy one with a bag!

Dirt not going into vacuum canister on dirt deval
It sounds like there is a clog in the hose itself if you have no suction from the end. If it is bagless remove the canister from the machine or if it is a bagged machine remove the bag. If you have a shop vac attach the hose from the shop vac to the end of the hose of the dirt devil and try to suck the obstruction out that way. Sometimes it is possible to remove the clog this way. You can tell if you have suction from the debris port to the bag or the canister. If not you may need to use a snake or coat hanger to pull the clog through.
