Dirt devil bagless will not ****. i have ensured entire suction path is clear. motor sounds normal. belt/brush are working fine. filter is clean. can i fix this myself? cost only $50 new so i probably won't take it anywhere for service.
If it is completely clean, no strain on the motor, no clog, check the fan on the motor - Intact? ... or is the center pulled out of the fan? ... Dirt Devil M086700 Vision Bagless Upright Vacuum
The belt is still good but the brush is not spinning. The motor sounds fine. what would cause that?

Motor dying? recently my herritage has been sounding sick, i tried to use it the other morning and it barely could blow up the bag, there is also a hot smell to it when it is running, the motor doesnt sound as powerful as it use to. Any suggestions?

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
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.

I was just using my Bosch 1450W bagged vacuum and all of a sudden, the motor just shut down. No warning, no problems. The light still turns on, but the motor is unresponsive. There is a clean bag and filter, and nothing caught in the front roller. The motor sounded fine - no shaking, or weird frequency variations. There were no weird smells, just a little bit of heat, but nothing beyond normal. I've had this thing for several years, and never had a bit of trouble with it. Any suggestions
Many vacuums have internal thermal switches that need to cool to allow the vac to operate. After 30 minutes, check all 3 air filters and try again.\012Gary ... Bosch BSG71310UC Bagged Canister Vacuum
Stopped running My mother's Oreck vacuum sound as if there was something bogging the rotating brush down. I pulled the bottom cover off and found nothing wrapped around or restricting the brush. I tried to finish vacuuming with the problem then I turned it off to move a chair and turned it back on it would do nothing. Any suggestions as to what could be causing the vacuum to sound as if the rotating brush is being restricted from turning. There was not odor of burning as if the motor was in a bi
Orecks have a plastic fan inside and everything you pick up hits it, sometimes things can get stuck in there or break the fan locking up the motor. With the machine off, poke around where the dirt goes into the motor, behind the roller and see if you ... Oreck XL Ultra Bagged Upright Vacuum
My A 2045 Karcher vacuum's suction is really weak and the motor seems to be working VERY hard. The motor sounds like it used to when the vacuum fell over and went into overdrive! Now it's in overdrive all the time and the suction is minimal. Nothing is blocked and the filter is clean and dry. What do I need to do?

Loud noise I ran over a string and then shut it off quickly. It now makes a horrible grinding sound. Did I ruin the motor? Sounds like something came undone. I checked the belt and that is fine. Ideas?
I think you damaged the belt. I ran over a sock once and it made a grinding noise but still worked for several months after the incident. Finally, the belt broke off. I had it replaced and now it doesn't make that sound. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a Filter Queen Majestic 360 and am having problems with the powerhead. There is a loud rattling noise in the powerhead, especially when I vacuum thicker carpet. I have replaced the motor, roller brush, and belt, but the rattling remains. It sounds like it is coming from the roller brush area,and when I turn the powerhead over, it rolls free and sounds fine. Any thoughts?
Hi there, as per your information i guess its a problem of power transformer. He can't supply the proper power in the motor & thats why the noise will come from the transformer. Thanks & waiting for your feedback. ... Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum
Self propelled vac: goes great on hard floor or hard slick carpet. Goes backwards fine but will not pull itself forward very well. Requires some effor to push it forward. I have adjusted the cable so the lever on the motor goes as far forward as possible. Suggestions? Model U6446-900

WST 1600A I purchased this vaccum about four months ago from Heartland America. Up to this point it's worked fine. After cleaning it this time when I went to start vaccuming again it runa for about 10 seconds and cuts off. I've changed the battery, taken everything that can be removed out checked it and replaced it. THe motor sounds like it's straining. I have not taken the housing off the motor to see what's going on with that. I misplaced my manual.
It sounds like there is a clog. If there is no air flow it could be overheating. ... Westinghouse WST1600 Upright Vacuum

Have a Centralux Aerus about 5 years old. Don't see a model number. There is suction but beater brush quit working. Was using for a few minutes, shut it off for a few minutes, turned it back on and suction only. Tried the reset button also. Tried the sidekick attachment and it works fine. There was no smell like something was hot. Belt is fine. Are there any fuses or anything else to try? This vacuum cleaner has not really been used that much, it is hard to believe the motor would need replaced
There probably is a loose wire in the handle near the switch or a wire off near the swivel elbow near the vac power head. With the right fastener tool to remove some screws you can fix it yourself ... Electrolux Centralux Vacuum
Dyson DC07 works and cleans fine, but motor makes loud screaching sound.
If the screeching noise is happening at all times, it is most likely a motor failure; which unfortunately can only be resolved by complete replacement of the motor. \015\012If it's a loud ratchety-screeching type sound, and is only occurring wh ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Stopped working Was working fine then it smelled like burning rubber, not the belt I checked. It sounds like the motor wants to run then it just stopped but the light is on. What do you think, go by a new one?? This has been a great vacuum cleaner and I can not seem to find a Sharp anywere. Thanks for your time.
Well it could be the motor, if it is it would cost around $80 or so for a motor. May be better to buy new, thre are a number of good brands out there. ... Sharp Twin Energy EC-12TWT4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
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
I just bought a Dyson DC 14 All Floors Vacuum and assembled it exactly as the manual said. It sounded normal as I went over hard floors but as soon as I went on carpet, the vacuum was extremely loud. There's no strings or debris in the powerhead... what else would cause this?
There is a knob setting at the footing for carpet and bare floor can help. Otherwise check out a little plastic for suction path from the bottom to the dirt container: it may loose, just snap it in. ... Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

We have a dyson dc 07 animal the machine was working fine then switched off after returning to the machine minutes later it wouldnt switch on, i removed on off switch cover and used a short piece of wire across the brown wires flicked the wall switch and it worked, aha i thought faulty switch aquired a new one to no avail and now even the short piece of wire trick doesnt work, has the motor died do you think, it wasnt over heating or making strange noises prior to refusing to work
It could be the motor. I'm having to replace the brushes on my DC 05. It appears that you can only get brushes for the YDK motors in the DYSON, not the Panasonic motor.
