Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Does not turn on we have checked the fuse. Went to turn it on yesterday, made a small noise and not worked since.
Typical problem with vaccuum cleaners anytime after about a year is that the wire in the flex fatigues at the point where it enters the cleaner. This results in an internal break in the wire. If it has only just happened, a good test is to turn the machine on, take hold of the flex about an inch before the point it enters the cleaner and shove it upwards firmly, if there is a fatigue break, it will make the circuit and the machine will burst into life. THIS IS NOT A FIX, THIS IS A TEST! If this action does demonstrate that this is the problem, you will need to remove the flex, cut out the failing couple of inches and re-make the connections.

It does not make the noise when I have it on floor but as soon as I put it on carpet it screams at me. Help! Please and thanks Linda
Hi Linda,\015\012Sounds like clutch problems, try to move the lever for carpet/floor back and forth a few times maybe it will free up. If it still makes the grinding noise, the clutch assembly will have to be replaced. Let me know, i can even ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Dead motor? My 8 year old Miele S251i has worked fine, until I was recently vacuuming and moved the plug from one outlet to another. When I restarted the vacuum, it made rrrrr.....rrrrrr....rrrrr noises and smelled like something was burning. I turned it off, and it's shown no signs of life since. Sound like a motor problem? I've taken the cover off and looked at the cord and seen the motor, nothing looks obviously wrong, but I'm also not mechanical.

It was made in 5/2009 & bought in July of 2010 brand new. it worked perfect til last week. i put something in it & it started to make a loud humming/vibrating noise. i assumed it was just something ontop of the microwaved & ignored it. 1 min later my food was still ice cold. we tried unplugging & plugging back in & made sure that it was clear of anything but it still makes noise & doesn't heat.

Infinity Vaccum by Shark, model number NV31COS, will not start. The vacuum was running just fine until it grabbed the edge of a curtain. Turned it off to release the suction. Turned it back on and was working fine. About a minute later the vacuum was making an odd noise. Every 2 seconds or so it would "heave" (lack of a better word) then go away, then come back and so on. Turned the vacuum off and checked for blockage, none that could be seen or felt, and now the vacuum won't turn. Any suggestio

Terrible noise My dyson was working great then started making this horrible noise. I cleaned the bar but noise is still there. I discovered the beater bar went around three passes then froze and started horrible noise again. my husband got the bar turning but after 2 swipes vacuuming it did it again. Can it be fixed or is it time to retire it and buy a new one. Wendy Kiser
That noise is the clutch. A very expensive part and very hard to replace. When a problem with the clutch happens it's generally not worth the time and money to replace.I suggest getting a different type of vacuum, maybe a Miele or Sebo. W ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Miele capricorn has started making an odd noise. It seems like something is blocking the engine. I've turned if off and on, and reset it and it still have the odd, almost loud barking noise. The power nozzle also does not seem to be working. I've checked the connections. Right before this happened I was using the vacuum. I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary until this.
Greetings,\015\012\015\012This is a major problem. The Miele vacuums motor should never make a loud noise, period. The way the motor is designed, it's quiet and should be quiet for the life of the motor. There are two motors on your ... Vacuums
My Rainbow SE vacuum was working fine until I ran over the edge of a rug and it went in to the nozzle. I immediately switched the vacuum off and proceeded to move the rug. When I tried to turn the Rainbow back on the brush was no longer spinning. I've tried the reset button and checking the nozzle for any debris, there are none. The brush just won't spin.

I removed the filter from the motor in the ball. After I cleaned it and let it dry, I put it back in. From then on, it makes a moaning noise when I turn it off after I vacuum. I followed directions to clean it and put it back (it's pretty straight forward and fool proof). I've since cleaned the filter a second time, doing the same steps and it seems to have made it worse.

My dyson DC17 will not turn on unless the handle is pulled back.(into the vacuuming position) The attachment hose will not work at all (0 suction thru it). I've checked the hose and made sure there is no obstruction. Any ideas?
Not sure if I can help, but I'll try. The DC17 has two motors: the vacuum motor and a separate motor for the brush bar. It is normal that the brush motor works only when the handle is pulled back in the vacuuming position - that's the way it's made. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
My vacuum makes a really loud noise when I turn it on. It was working and now it smells like something is burning. I check the belt- it looks ok.
The belt may look okay but it still can be stretched or worn and can be slipping on the motor shaft and thats why you have the burning smell. I would try changing the belt.
