Information About Model Number, Manufacturer Code, and / or Plant Code?
Information concerning your model including the model number (MODEL), manufacturing code (MFG. CODE), plant code (PLANT) and other information can be found on the models data plate. The following describes where to find the location of your data plate determined by the type of your model.
All Dirt Devil model numbers* on this website will begin with the letter "M." If your model number on the data plate does not start with the letter "M", please add the "M" to the model number from the data plate for use on dirtdevil.com.
(*Exceptions are refurbished models, in which case the "M" will be replaced with an "R".)
The Manufacturer Code consists of one letter, two numbers(leading zero in most cases), and one letter. An example being 'E04A'.
The Plant Code consists of a single letter and is to the right of the word plant on the data plate. An example being 'S'.

Uprights, extractors and stick vacs have their data plates on the back of the unit. For uprights and extractors, the data plate is closer to the bottom of the unit. Stick vacs have data plate on the main section of the body more toward the middle of the unit.
Canisters / Hand Vacs
The data plate for canister and hand vaccums can be found on the bottom of the units.
