Noise Hi... I was doing normal house work and had been using it on carpet... I put it on floor for my hardwood floors and picked up loose clean cat litter and went to put it back on carpet and it made a horrible noise like it was rubbing. cleaned the filter... cleaned the roller thingi ...checked the belt and it is still making that horrible noise. It does not make the noise when I have it on floor but as soon as I put it on carpet it screams at me. Help! Please and thanks Linda

The vacuum is making a noise like something is stuck when it is in the carpet position but not when in the floor position. I can't find anything that is stuck in the areas that I can see. I have cleaned the brush but it does not seem to want to turn. Does this machine need to be oiled so the roller will turn? Is there a way to check inside the motor? Do you think that because the brush won't turn that is making the noise? Do you know of any repair shops in the Lake Havasu City, Arizona area?

My Dyson DC07 has recently been service and was making a clattering noise and very hard to push. We have taken it back and he has changed the clutch mechanism under the base which has solved the clattering, but it is still really hard to push because of the suction. It is even lifting the carpet in one room. Can you tell me what the possible reasons for this could be? One thought we had was that the little rubber wheels on the bottom cover could have worn so the hoover is closer to the floor
