\015\012Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that the suction fan is rubbing against the motor and needs an adjustment but don’t try to take it apart yourself, if it is less than one year you have a factory warranty on the unit and should actually take it to the local factory authorized Hoover vacuum dealer in your area and have him do the warranty work, if you try to do the work it voids the factory warranty. It is a minor problem and can be adjusted so contact your local vac dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

I have a DC04 which is a number of years old and has started making an awful grinding sound, I'm sure it is the belt which I sprayed with WD40 and this helped for a couple of seconds but as soon as I recline the hoover it makes this noise but not when upright and using the hose. Does anyone have any ideas or how to change the belt? Thanks

My dyson turns on but when i push it to vacuum it makes this awful sound like something got sucked up and caught. i turn it off and turn it over and nothing is stuck. My husband even looked at it and he thinks it's the belt. The belt doesn't turn as loose. Please help.


If yours is one of the DC07 models that has a clutch (there's a knob you can turn, close to the front on the right side - right as you look from behind, that is). Sometimes this problem is cured by simply turning that knob from one extreme to the oth ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Tim Horton's (Bunn) Coffee Maker won't stop boiling the water really hard (to the point where it practically boils the full pot away). When I go to make coffee the next time it's boiled so hard that it doesn't give me a whole pot of coffee just like 3/4 of a pot, and if I haven't used it in like a day it's boiled it down to half a pot??... it's beginning to make me angry, as I have cleaned it in the past for this trouble, but it doesn't help or make a difference. Can somebody please help me??

Loud noise I have a brand new Dyson and it is great on all my floors except one of my area rugs when it starts making this really loud vibrating noise. I am not sure why - nothing is stuck in the roller or vacuum and it doesn't make it on any of my other rugs. Also it is really hard to push whereas all the other floors it just glides. I don't want to return it but I also don't want to hear this sound every time I vacuum.


This is the clutch as it jams up in the brush. Usually happens with rugs that are not secured to the floor. ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

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?

Hi. We have a Riccar N2100 vacuum cleaner, which has served us well for many, many years. I'd like to attempt a repair on this unit, and looking for advice and/or a parts diagram to proceed. The unit makes a groaning sound when shut off. The sound tapers off in pitch as the motor and beater bar come to a stop. The sound only happens when the vacuum cleaner is turned off in the normal upright position. The sound does not happen when the lower unit and main housing are both laying flat. I took

DYSON DC14 While vacuuming the living room, the rotating brush started making an awful loud grinding sound. We opened the intake port, cleaned the brush but to no avail sound still persists once you lower the vacuum handle in an attempt to clean. Was wondering if there was anything that can be done?


Take the bottom plate off and check the belt. Also, rotate the brush by hand - it should turn with only a moderate resistance from the belt, or very little if you take the belt off. If it is hard to turn, or if the belt is stripped-out right where it ... Vacuums

Comcast dc50 Hi my vertually new dc50 doesn't seem to be picking up. It's not making the louder sound that it makes when the brushes go round and nothing is picking up in the cylinder, it's just building up flick in the head and depositing it back on the carpet in clumps :-(. Please help .....

When I vacuum w/ the brush control in the on position it make a really loud noise, almost like a grinding sound. I have looked at it and nothing seems to be wrong, but I notice that the pin that engages the belt seems to vibrate a bit, possibly creating the noise. It started when I accidentally got part of a plastic grocery bag caught in the brush. Could it have stretched a belt? Nothing is caught any other place and it only makes the noise when the brush in in the on position.


Yes, the belt could have been stretched and is now vibrating and hitting other parts and creating a noise if much of the bag got caught under the belt. If you have another belt for this vacuum, please put it on and see if the noise stops. If it does ... Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel Cyclonic Bagless UprightVacuum

Hi. I have a Kirby from back in the early 90s (model G3D). Never had major issues with it. Can't remember the last time I had maintenance/tune up done. It's just sounding different when I run it the last few times...almost like it's louder and kind of echo-ey. Still suctioning well, but something's not right and I don't want to run it until I know if anything's up. Any suggestions? I'd like to try and figure this one out on my own with your help. Thanks in advance for your help. Marci

It sounds like the bearings in the motor are shot. You can try to get a replacement motor, or if you're a mechanical genius type, you might be able to repair the motor bearings. If the shaft is worn, you'll have to buy a new motor.\015\012Y ... Fein 9-77-25 Turbo III Bagged Canister Vacuum

Had my dyson root cyclone for about 4 years now, and in the last year it's had a few problems. About 4 months ago it started to make this awful grinding sound when the roller bar was engaged and I took it to a repair shop and they said it was the roller bar itself. The shop replaced the part and it worked fine for a couple of months and then it started to make the grinding noise again.
