Vacuim sweeper motor has a high pitch squeal otherwise runs fine


Answers :

If you can notice a smell of burned rubber near the sweeper, then you most likely have a slightly stretched belt. The belt would be spinning against the beater brush, causing the squeaking noise -- as it heats up, the belt will begin to smoke, or at least give off the smell of burned rubber. This will be the most noticeable if you use the vacuum for a few minutes and then turn it off -- most times the suction from the vacuum will pull the smell into the vacuum and keep you from noticing it until it has been going on for quite some time. Replacing the belt should fix the problem.\012
\012Before going out and buying the belt, you might want to check between the belt and the beater brush -- if there is a lot of debris between the belt and the beater brush, it will cause the same type of slipping as a stretched belt, and could also be the cause of your problem. Either way, to fix the issue, you have to open the bottom of the vacuum and take a look at the belt -- if it looks to be in good shape, move it around a little. If it has a lot of room to move, it's probably stretched. If you notice a big hair clog under the belt, this is most likely to be your problem -- clean that out and you should be good to go.

There seems to been a high pitched sound in the motor. I'd describe it as a 'dry' sound, and the high pitch of it is very loud. I want to stop vacuuming because it's so loud. Are there any oil/greasing points/spots? If so, how do I find them?

I have a mile tt2000 that works fine up to 1300W but if I crank it up higher the motor decreases and increases speed every couple of seconds. I have changed the bag and filters and done the usual cheCks for blockages but can find nothing amiss. Unusually when it is running and I block the intake it will run at full power but as soon as I clear it the motor "hunts" again. Any ideas.

The motor in my Powermate (Kenmore Canister 116.27614700) is whining, high pitched, but still works. A local shop told me the motor is dying (the one in the Powermate that drives the beater bar) and would cost $150 for them to repair. The machine is only 1.5 years old and I paid $300...yikes. I think I can fix it but don't understand why the foam gasket that apparently wraps around the motor costs as much as the motor. This is assuming that part 32 (ks747156) is the foam I see glued to my cur
