How To Take Apart A Dirt Devil Vacuum Cleaner

Are you familiar with the saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”? Well, that may be the case for some things – but not when it comes to your vacuum cleaner. Even if your vacuum seems to be working just fine, there are countless benefits to taking it apart and giving it a good cleaning. Not only will this prolong the life of your vacuum, but it will also improve its performance. In this blog post, we will show you how to take apart a Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner step-by-step. We will also provide some helpful tips on what to do (and what not to do) during the process.

What you’ll need

To take apart a Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner, you will need:

-A Phillips head screwdriver
-A flat-head screwdriver
-Needle nose pliers
-A small bowl or cup

First, unplug the vacuum cleaner from the power outlet. Then, using the Phillips head screwdriver, remove the two screws from the bottom plate of the vacuum cleaner. Next, using the flathead screwdriver, pry off the bottom plate. Be careful not to damage any of the wirings as you do this.

Once the bottom plate is removed, you will be able to see the inside of the vacuum cleaner. Locate the dustbin and detach it from the rest of the vacuum by pressing down on the release button and pulling it away. Empty out any debris that may be inside before proceeding.

Now locate the filter. There are typically two filters in a Dirt Devil vacuum – a pre-motor filter and a post-motor filter. The pre-motor filter is usually located near where dirt and debris are first sucked into the vacuum, while the post-motor filter is located closer to where the dustbin was attached. To remove either filter, simply unscrew it from its housing and set it aside (you can rinse it off with water if it is particularly dirty).

With both filters removed, you should now have clear access to most of the inner workings of your Dirt Devil vacuum. If there are any areas that seem particularly dirty or clogged, you can use the needle nose pliers to remove any debris. Once you are finished, reassemble the vacuum cleaner in the reverse order of how you took it apart.
Now that you know how to take apart a Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner, you can easily clean it and keep it in good working condition.

Step one

If you need to take your Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner apart, the first step is to unplug it and remove the dustbin. Then, locate the screws on the bottom of the vacuum and remove them. Next, you will need to remove the cover of the vacuum. Once the cover is off, you can access the brush roll and remove it. Finally, you can remove the hose by unscrewing it from the body of the vacuum.
Step two

Once you have removed the hose, you can begin cleaning out the inside of the vacuum. Use a brush to remove any dirt or debris that is stuck to the walls of the vacuum. Be sure to pay special attention to the area around the brush roll. Once you have finished cleaning, you can reassemble the vacuum by following the steps in reverse order.

Step two

If you need to take your Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner apart, follow these steps. Step two is removing the dustbin. To do this, first, detach the hose from the vacuum. Next, locate the two clips that hold the dustbin in place and release them. The dustbin will then come off easily.

Step three

If the vacuum cleaner is still not working after following steps one and two, the final step is to take it apart. This can be done by unscrewing the screws on the bottom of the vacuum cleaner. Once the screws are removed, the bottom plate can be lifted off, revealing the inside of the vacuum cleaner. The next step is to locate the blockage and remove it. Be careful when doing this, as there may be sharp edges inside the vacuum cleaner. Once the blockage has been removed, reassemble the vacuum cleaner and screw the bottom plate back on.


If your Dirt Devil vacuum isn’t working properly, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the problem. First, check the power cord to make sure it’s plugged in correctly. If it is, then check the vacuum filters to see if they need to be cleaned or replaced. You may also need to empty the dirt cup if it’s full. If none of these solutions work, then you may need to take your vacuum apart to investigate further.

To take your vacuum apart, start by removing the screws that hold the bottom plate in place. Once the plate is removed, you should be able to see the brush roll and belt. If the brush roll is not spinning, then the belt may be broken and will need to be replaced. To replace the belt, simply remove it from the brush roll and put a new one in its place. Once the belt is replaced, reassemble the vacuum and test it out.
If your vacuum still isn’t working properly, then you may need to take it to a professional for repairs.
