Dirt Devil Vacuum Parts

View Models

Whether you live in a house or an apartment, you depend on your Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner to keep your floors neat and tidy. When your vacuum stops picking up dirt and debris, it disrupts the peace within your home. Use these troubleshooting tips, along with repair help and replacement parts from Sears PartsDirect, to get your vacuum back on the job quickly.


Remove Debris and Tangled Hair

The first step in troubleshooting a Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner is checking for debris and tangled hair in the bearings on the side of the brush roll. When hair and other debris become entangled in these vacuum parts, the power brush motor often overloads and trips. After removal, push the reset button, and then check to see if that fixes the issue.


Check the Ribbed Belt

Another common cause of the brush roll failing to spin properly is a damaged ribbed drive belt. This belt connects the brush roll to the drive motor pulley, which spins the brush when the drive motor powers on. If it's worn, broken or damaged in any way, replace it immediately.


Replace the Vacuum Brush Roll

If the previous fixes don't solve your issue, your options for vacuum repair help include replacing the vacuum brush roll. Part of the power brush assembly, the brush roll cylinder is covered with rows of bristles designed to lift dirt from and between carpet fibers when it rotates. Worn bristles and damaged cylinders can be the culprit when your vacuum won't pick up debris as it should, making replacement the most viable option.
