Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I have a Premalite vacuum, Model721.37060700 bagless. It is working but has started making a high pitched whining sound, with slight burning odor.

Answers :

This is the brushes in the motor burning out by time you get this message the cleaner will have stopped. Replace motor or replace machine. Motor can be replaced because that was my last job mending vacuum cleaners. I think Godfreys may repair them or any small electrical store or you can do it yourself.

I have a Nutone CV-450. When the unit is turned on the motor makes a high pitched whining sound. The suction seems like it is reduced and there is a burning rubber smell coming from the unit. Suction at the unit itself is also reduced. Any ideas about the cause of the problem and the solution?

With cleaning carpets with the Stowaway when the head gets a blockage it makes a high pitched whining sound and requires unblocking - then works fine. Now when vacuuming the head always makes the same sound when the head is against the carpet. you can also see that the rollers are slow or stopped. We have pulled the Stowaway virtually completely apart and checked for blockages as well as washed the filter and no difference. Any ideas?

High pitch My Hoover fusion vacuum cleaner began making a high pitch sound that makes it very annoying to vacuum. I cleaned all the things I could clean. I even cut out all the hair that was entangled in the brushes. Any idea what is causing the sound. It sounds like an siren is going off.

The removable filter at the front is cleaned regularly, and is not clogged. However, the machine appears to be suffering from being clogged by dust, as it has started to make a high pitched noise, and I fear it may burn out. I can see some dust inside the front panel but cannot see how to remove the front to clean it out. (NB. I have located two screws - one on either side - but cannot see how to proceed further.) Please help! Thank you.

Was hoovering when my DC04 made a funny high pitched noise then a whirring noise, this was accompanied by a smell of burning and a puff of smoke! Almost sounds like it might be a clutch slipping, is this possible or is it more likely to be a motor burn out?

OK... the DC04 doesn't have a clutch. My best guess is that the belt that drives the brush roll has broken. The smell of burning and smoke puff were probably caused by the motor suddenly speeding up when freed of its burden of driving the brush roll. ... Vacuums
