Make that the DIRT Devil which has turned out to be the demon of darkness at my house.. My 30 year old Kirby passed away after Thanksgiving and I was forced to purchase a replacement.
There must have been an epidemic affecting the vacuum cleaner population because the only thing Wal-mart had in stock was the darn Dirt Devil. Today I attempted to empty the canister and the bottom fell out, spewing dust and everything it gobbled up over the last 30 days.
What really chapped me was that I could not put it back together again so the detritus is being tracked all over the house by the very energetic kitten I adopted about the same time the Big Dirty Devil came into my life.
Does anyone out there own a Dirt Devil and if so can you please tell me how to get the top back on the canister and get it working again? I tried to call the company but they put me on hold for three hours and ate up the charge on my cellphone. I called 911 and they couldn’t’ or wouldn’t help me. My frustration level is at al all time high and if it weren’t so cold I would run away from home.
Take my advice. NEVER ever buy a Dirt Devil. There was a reason it was the only vacuum available – the rest of the world had already discovered it’s a piece of junk.
