I have an older Oreck XL vacuum that sounds like it is running twice as fast as it should. I disassembled the entire vacuum, including disconnecting the motor wires, to clean out the hair, string, and other things. When I put everything back and connected all the wires, everything appears to work, including the light. The only problem is, it sounds extremely loud like the motor is running too fast. The model number is: XL3610HH Ser. No. 3610HHXA039740-6 I do not have as electrical diagram to see

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

Check the belt. this is a strong vaccume and even without the belt it will still have a decent amount of suction. If the belt is not tight or intact it can let the motor turn faster which will sound louder. other than that check all the hoses for hol ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

I have the Dyson DC14 and its like it's not brushing the carpet anymore, The brush is spinning, but its like it isn't self adjusting to the carpet height? It still has suction, but doesn't make the same sound it used to when you'd start vacuuming. Its like it never adjusts anymore???

Hi its Darran at Dyson.It sounds as though the internal hose underneath the machine has twisted slightly. With the machine switched off, lay it on its side and look at the base. You should be able to see a small corrigated hose. Simply t ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My husband sucked up part of a rug. The belt didn't shut off like I thought it was supposed to. Now there is a funny loud hum when the brush is running. There are also some fuzzy disc-like things around the brush that look like they're unraveling. Thoughts???

See if you can take the brush assembly off. There should be a plate and 2 screws. One on each side. You can lift out the brush and get all of the strings and such off of the roller brush. You might have to go a little deeper with it open and see if a ... Kenmore 23612 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum

So, I was sewing along and heard a thump...kind of sounded like a louder version of what you hear when the needle hits a pin...but I wasn't using pins. This, of course, lead to the thread jamming so I had to clear that. When rethreading I pulled out the bobbin case to make sure it was seated correctly and found a kind of "v" shaped piece of wire (about the width of a paper clip I guess) sitting loose under the bobbin case. I took it out and threw it away. Still can't pull up the bobbin threa

That part was the hook end of the spring that was supposed to put tension on the bobbin - it will have to be replaced. This is a special flat spring that unfortunately only a repair shop of a dealer has it - you will have to take your machine to one. ... Vacuums

Dyson DC11 turbo head not spinning - it feels like the selector button has broken inside and is locked to not spin. is there a way to disasembel and maybe glue or fix the selector?

I have a NUTONE central vac, when I turn on the power, It sounds like its grinding glass and doesnt suction. Could it be that broken glass got caught in the motor and all I need to do is clean it, or is this the sound of a failed motor?

More likely it's something in the fan. However, I suggest taking it to a vacuum repair shop to make sure. Something could have got into the fan system and is making a racket, but the motor itself won't crunch up glass. ... Electrolux Central Vacuum


The vac is over heating. First, you should try a new filter. Also, keep in mind that after cleaning the filter, make sure that it fully dries. Using a wet or damp filter clogs it quickly. Second, turn the vac upside down and make sure that the roller ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I have a HBS 20 fan. I've had for a few years but seldom used. I turned it on last week and it made this humming sound. After a few minutes it started running just fine. However, now it does not hum or do anything else. What is wrong & how can it be repaired? Please help. Thank you

It ispossible that the capacitor for the motor is weak . You can access and replace this capacitor if the motor is humming and getting warm. replace with the same value and test. If it does not work then check the windings of the motor, if short wi ... Vacuums

Roomba Discovery Roomba is fully charged and cleaned with sensor wiped clean. When turned on it it sounds normal and commences to go, but it then acts like it is putting on the breaks, spins, tries to go and manages a short distance and breaks again, just not making any progress because it keeps breaking after a foot or so and turns and tries again. Sometimes is gets so stuck from moving forward at all, like it is stuck in one spot just trying to go while seemingly surrounded by barriers. Somet

I have a Bissell 9400 E pro heat turbo. It's only been used 4 times, today it sounded like something blew. All my house electrics went off...( blew the main trip) I did read some place that the motor can short out and blow the PCB.

My Rainbow e-series will not run. It will turn on, but it sounds like the motor is barely running for a few seconds and then it stops. It will do this over and over.

Remove the water canister and turn the motor on it's side. Try to turn the 'diffuser' device by hand--it should turn freely. If very hard to turn, then one of the motor bearings may have frozen and the plastic case must be removed to access the motor ... Rainbow E series Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum
