The reset button is located on the upper left hand side of the unit above where the low voltage wires connect into the machine.

SOURCE: Dirt Devil Extreme Quick Vac - Won't turn on

Check that the filters are completely clear and not blocked - especially the top filter on top of the bin assembly. If its clogged completely brush it free of dirt and then reassemble. Make sure the inner cone filter and mesh filter is also completely clean. Then check the hose and main dust channel - something is clogged that makes this machine overheat and stop working - and often with this model (Hoover also make it in the UK under the Alyx name) its down to clogged filters or small clogs of dust in the dust channels. 
Don't forget to rate, thanks.

SOURCE: i cant get the power brush to work

can you turn the brush by hand? if it turns real freely the belt is broke or the brush siezed up make sure there isn't any carpet strans wrapped around the ends of the brush otherwise the brush won't turn.if its the belt make sure you clean the motor shaft before you put on the new belt,the old rubber from the old belt will make the new belt run unevevly and break again..good luck

SOURCE: I have a dirt devil featherlite bagless vacuum;

there are 3 screws 2 on the left side behind the hose and 1 on the right back by the wheel.that will take the cover off.if you need to get into the bottom there is a screw on the bottom plate in the area where it looks like the belt travels.is the brush roller turning if not then your belt is probably broke.before you replace the belt clean off the motor shaft and get the old rubber off it otherwise the new belt won't last long.please leave feedback .be sure to clean your filter inside the dirt cup

SOURCE: Dirt Devil Swivel Glide Platinum vacuum suction problem

Is the suction tubing in the head assembly clogged, is the belt broke? If the if the belt looks good the brush may be turned off and you may need to turn the brush switch on.

My dirt devil cyclonic upright has suction on bottom but not in cleaning wand


Take the hose off where it goes in to the vacuum and see if there is something lodged in the opening where the hose fits in to.

Why doesn't my dirt devil vision turbo have any suction through the hose yet there's good suction at the hose connection to the canister?


The hose is probably blocked. If possible reverse it (put the intake of the hose on the canister connection) that should suck out the obstruction. If that fails try to carefully push a broom handle into the hose, preferably from the end that connects to the canister. Put the hose back on normally and see what happens.

Dirt devil jaguar pet vacuum - no power goes to vacuum


I've literally disassembled the ENTIRE vacuum. I got it for a dollar at the local goodwill with the intent on converting it into a dust collector for my mini workshop. As others have said. The suction is abysmal. I don't think it could beat a dust vac. And that's with just the motor hooked to dirt collector. No brush, no belt, no carpet adjusting. Just a motor, dirt collector and hose. Zero suction. Removed the hose, zero suction. Remove the dirt collector, solid suction. Dunno if the dirt collector is missing a part, but I doubt that based on other replies. I'm guessing all the holes in the red tube of top chamber are the issue. But I can't easily access it. I think I may end up cutting it open to try plugging some holes or some other modifications. But this vac is garbage in its original configuration

I have a Dirt Devil Jaguar bagless vacuum. It used to work great. Now, it is blowing a huge amount of dust out of the front of the machine as I try to vacuum the carpet. can this be remedied?


This generally happens if the hose system is clogged. No suction so the power head brush just kicks out the dirt and debris you're trying to pick up, and loose stuff that is currently in the hose system. If it has been doing this for quite a while, or has been used with blockage, the motor has to work harder and will eventually burn out, if there is no overheat shut of switch in the cleaner.
Check all parts of the hose system, from the power head to the tank. Clear all clogs. That should take care of the problem.
Another possibility is that the fan blades are broken or worn down. This would result in no suction even though the motor is running.

Sounds stupid but how to i connect the hose?


the hose on a dirt devil upright attaches on the side near the bottom of the plastic container that hold the dirt; that end goes in and gives suction to the power head.the other end goes on the other side closer to the top of the plastic container again on the side. If you look at the bottom of the machine you should see a hose going from the power head to the machine and it leads up and attaches to the long hose. It is the other side it attaches near the suction to create the air flow. You can also check your owners manual.Thanks and good luck. If this helps don't for get to click on the yes box on your way out.

Our Dirt Devil D2 bottom has no suction


I would check the bottom of the unit to see if there is any blockage. I don't know if this unit has a switch that you set to switch from hose to floor. If so I would set it to floor and see if there is any suction in the hose, indicating a switching problem. If there is no suction in the hose, I would still check the bottom of the unit and disassemble it as much as you feel comfortable to see if you can see any blockage. Good luck!

My dirt devil reaction is spitting out dirt everywhere. how do i fix this?


Sound like you have an obstruction in the suction path. check the foot (bottom) check for suction at the hose for blockage. the blockage is where you lose suction.

No Wind Coming Out of Dirt Devil


The suction hole will never have wind coming out of it, it is for suction. To switch from floor to hose, turn the control knob labeled floor / hose.
