Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Why is my vacuum so loud?
\015 My vacuum is really, really loud. Everything works, but should it be sooo loud? What could the problem be? I've cleaned all the filters, did everything the troubleshooting manual said to do. The motor works just fine. If this is just how loud the vacuum is, I'm getting another one.\015

I bought the Eureka 4703D model vacuum and my very first time powering it on, it was extremely loud - abnormally loud, and I don't know if it is loud like that because I possibly put it together wrong, or there is something wrong with it or it was previously damaged and I would like to know if this is something I can fix myself or do I have to take it back apart and return it to Walmart where I purchased it from.

LOUD hoover It's vacuuming well but is extremely loud. I'm a drummer so I don't have what you'd call sensitive ears, and my ears are ringing after a mere 10 minutes of having the vacuum on!

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 ran over a big floor rug with my vacuum and some of the strings from the rug got tangled in the roller on the vacuum. It makes a terribly loud noise even now after I have cleared the strings from the rollers. What else can I do to get rid of the loudness?
Loose area rugs should never be cleaned with any revolving brush vac. They will damage the rug by destroying the fringes and corners. In some cases the brush will also pull out tufted as the rug is made so poorly. Natural fiber rugs should never have ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
My Kenmore progressive vacuum is extremely loud. The airflow and suction seem to be uninhibited, but the noise is loud and frustrating.

I replaced the belt on my Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum and the brush roller rubs and makes a very loud noise when turned on. I have gone exactly by the manual instructions and made sure the belt and end caps were on correctly, but the bristles still rub the back and it makes a very loud noise. Without the brush roller in the vacuum, it sounds and runs normal. What could the problem be?
