How do you unclog a Dirt Devil vacuum?
Moreover, why is my Dirt Devil vacuum not picking up?
Dirt Devil Vacuum cleaner won't pick up, no suction If the filter is clogged, the vacuum cleaner will not have proper suction. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch out the hose so that it is straight, shine a bright flashlight into one end of the hose, and look through the opposite end of the hose.
Beside above, why does my vacuum not have suction? The most common cause of loss of suction is that the filters have become blocked. They may require cleaning or replacing. Another cause could be that the vacuum cleaner hose is blocked. Remove all filters and clean them all following the operating instructions.
Also question is, is there a reset button on the Dirt Devil?
(The reset button is located on the upper left hand side of the unit above where the low voltage wires connect into the machine.) Push this reset button in if it has popped out.
Why does my vacuum keep getting clogged?
If the attachment hose has no suction, either it or the hose suction port is clogged. Try sucking out the clog with a strong vacuum. If that doesn't work, use the bent hanger technique shown in Photo 3 to remove the clog. Stubborn clogs in hoses can be forced through with a broom handle (Photo 2).
