Rated 1 out of 5★ by turtlenutt Poor suction and overheats I received this vacuum from my employer award program. For the first week it worked great. I have had the vacuum now for a few months and it spits dirt out the back, attachments have no suction, and it overheats frequently which causes it to stop working for at least an hour. The dirt canister broke when trying to empty it. I have rinsed out the filter several times thinking that was the issue with suction but it didn't help.★ 06/09/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by DDBelt99 Belt was installed wrong from factory, burned up I received this as part of a gift program from my employer. I selected this vacuum as I had a need and have had great success with Dirt Devil in the past.Assembly went smoothly, although the directions were poorly written.Within 1 minute of use the belt was destroyed. It was not properly installed at the factory. Of course there wasn't a spare belt in the box. Normally I would just return to the store but since this was delivered VIA UPS, it was very inconvenient to replace the belt.I understand that things happen, but a little forethought by adding a spare belt in the box would have been proper customer service.Now consider the opportunity cost of that money savings campaign.You could have had a better review.I would make it a point to buy a Dirt Devil brand belt instead of now going out of my way to ensure that I buy aftermarket brand, regardless of cost.You could have had a loyal customer for life, who would freely offer you the benefit of a strong word of mouth campaign.Pros: Light, no bag, good attachmentsCons: Poor directions for assembly. "Cheap feel", prone to incorrect assembly at the factory. 06/02/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by pazfam if I could give it less than one star I would This vac is completely useless. ★ I ordered it and the first time I used it, it would spit out everything it vacuumed. ★ I returned it and thought maybe I got a defected one so I asked for the same product. ★ Big mistake, same problem now its going in the trash...brand new vacuum and a waste of my money!! 12/21/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by actionmarinejem Constanly overheats and has very little suction I had bought the Dirt Devil Vigor because I have had great luck with this company in the past. Unfortunately, after only using it for the second time the vacuum simply shut off and got very hot. I then disassembled the vacuum and thoroughly cleaned all the parts and let it cool off. After reassembling the vacuum it still didn't even have enough power to use the hand attachment and would just throw the dirt behind it instead over sucking it up. 12/05/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by janddnelson Overheats after 10 min I bought this as a Christmas gift for myself as my old hoover was in need of replacement. It worked fine for the first 2 or 3 months. Then today, I was trying to vacuum just the upstairs of our townhome, and within 1o minutes, it cut off. It was very hot. I thought I had blown a fuse and even tried another plug, but nothing. After about 30 min, it was cool enough to restart. However after 5 min, it is off again. I would like a working vacuum that I can run at least 30-45 min that will not cut off on me. Do you have something like that Dirt Devil??? 04/22/2014
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Matt2014 Horrible Product The very first time i used this vacuum it worked great. Ever since all it does is spit everything back out! It leaves more dust and dirt on the carpet than there was before, making it take twice as long to clean. I have tried changing the carpet depth dial and still no change. I am very unhappy with this product especially coming from a well known company like this! 01/05/2014
Rated 1 out of 5★ by mikey Pathetic Similar story here, received this thru employer gift program. Had it for about 4 weeks. Intention was to use this downstairs and keep the Dyson upstairs. At first I thought it was pretty good, my wife hated it and kept dragging the Dyson up & down. I just tried to use it in the kitchen and got annoyed as the same little thread would get pulled in the front and get blown out the back, instead of getting sucked up. There is now more crud on the floor than before I turned this on. Not worth the price I paid for it, and it was free. 09/02/2013
