How to Use a Dirt Devil Feather Lite

Dirt Devil Featherlite vacuum cleaners are a convenient machine for removing dirt and debris from your carpet. Featherlite vacuum cleaners don't have many of the features found in high-end vacuum cleaners, but are a bargain-price solution for homes with low-maintenance carpets, such as throw rugs or rooms with short carpets. In addition, Featherlite vacuums have several attachments for cleaning walls and other hard-to-reach areas.

Video of the Day

Plug the power cord into a working electrical outlet and press the handle release lever on the back of the nozzle. The handle release allows you to move the handle to a comfortable position for pushing and pulling on the vacuum cleaner.

Turn the vacuum cleaner on with the power switch located on the handle of the machine.

Move the vacuum cleaner back and forth over the carpet to draw dirt and debris into the machine.

Using Attachments

Turn off the power and return the handle to the full, upright position. The attachments will only work if the handle is in the upright position.

Pull the hose off of the vacuum cleaner body and slide one of the attachments into the end of the hose.

Press the power button to the "On" position and run the attachment lightly over furniture, walls and steps to clean those surfaces.

Turn off the vacuum when finished, twist and pull the attachment out of the hose and return the hose to the body of the vacuum cleaner.
