Dirt Devil Scorpion Quick Flip Troubleshooting

This troubleshooting page will help you diagnose and resolve issues with the Dirt Devil Scorpion Quick Flip Hand Vac.

Clogging ¶ 

A clogged vacuum still has suction power, but cannot pic up dirt or debris. The airflow may be restricted, but the motor still sounds functional. If clogged, unplug and discontinue use immediately in order to prevent overheating and power failure.

Dirty Filter ¶ 

A dirty filter may be the cause of your clogging. If you remove the front module of the vacuum and see that the filter is covered in dirt and debris, it is likely the cause of the clogging.

If the filter is dirty or full of debris, clean it by rinsing or using an air compressor to blow out debris. Examine the filter and make sure it is clean. Replace in the module.

Lodged Object ¶ 

A lodged object may be the cause of your clogging. If you see an object obstructing the intake of dirt from the vacuum, this is likely the cause.

Take apart the module and look for an object causing the obstruction. If such an object exists, remove the object causing the obstruction.

Poor/no suction ¶ 

The vacuum cannot pick up dirt or debris. The airflow of the vacuum is severely restricted such that it cannot generate suction.

Broken Motor ¶ 

A broken motor is a very large obstacle to proper suction. You may notice that your motor is broken if when you power the vacuum on, you hear no noise.

Disassemble the vacuum and check to see if the motor is functioning. If the motor is broken, [http://PlaceHolder|replace it].

Dirty Filter ¶ 

Examine the filter and make sure it is clean. If the filter is dirty or full of debris, clean it by rinsing in a sink or using an air compressor to blow out debris.

Lodged Object ¶ 

Take apart the module and remove the object causing the obstruction.

Faulty Hose connection ¶ 

Check all hose connections and ensure that all connections are complete and secure.

Spitting out debris ¶ 

Instead of taking in dirt and debris, the unit ejects them. The vacuum may take in some debris but reject a portion of it.

Faulty Hose connection ¶ 

Check all hose connections and ensure that all connections are complete and secure.

Faulty Intake Valve ¶ 

Check to make sure that the valve on the nozzle of the vacuum is not broken or damaged. If the valve is damaged such that it cannot function properly, [http://PlaceHolder|replace it].

Power failures ¶ 

''The unit will not turn on, or it turns on, but quickly turns off. '

Power Surge ¶ 

If there was a power surge while the vacuum was in use, [http://PlaceHolder|replace the relay unit].

Faulty Power Cable ¶ 

The power cable may be broken. Replace it with another cable to determine if this is the issue.

Overheating ¶ 

The unit gets too hot when in use.

Overuse ¶ 

The vacuum may overheat from overuse. Unplug it and wait 15-20 minutes allowing the device to cool.

Airflow Issues ¶ 

The Scorpion Quick Flip relies on airflow through the device for cooling. If the device is clogged, or the dirt cup is full, this may cause the unit to overheat. Unplug the unit and allow it cool, empty the dirt cup and clean the filter.

Faulty Power Cable ¶
