Answers :

Ours has been doing the same thing...the beater bar end plates, black thins, and the little groove area they go into are worn of the front and rear surfaces. You could buy a new beater bar but the wear on the housing would require quite a bit of work to replace that hole piece.

You will also notice that the belt is loose due to this wear.

Solution....duct tape to the rescue!

I took out the beater bar and took a strip of duct tape about 1-1½ inches long and folded that over to be a long narrow pad that fits in the groove that the beater bars end plate slides into...the groove to the rear of the beater bar.

Then I took a piece of duct tape and taped the little pad/shim I made to the rear edge of the beater bar so the pad will be in the groove when the bar is installed.

Put the bar back in carefully and no more noise and the belt is now tight again.

The fact that these 2 parts wear on each other and this affects the tension of the belt is what causes the noise...the sloppy belt will get so bad it will start jumping over the teeth and soon after it will break.

My wife was impressed...hope it works for you too...

Would make sense to make a more permanent solution but I just did this a couple days ago and we have vacuum the whole 2500 sq. ft. house with no extra noise...I have time to figure out better...maybe a harder plastic cut to fit in there...

I have a DC14. About a wk ago it was making loud sound and bar stopped turning. i unclogged everything....now the suction works great. However, the bar still wont turn. The belt inside is still intact and isnt loose. Several solutions suggested resetting the "Red" button...i have searched the vacuum over and over. there is NO red or any other color reset button.

Rainbow Vacuum, about 5 yrs old (bought new, no issues prior) - my 6yr old tipped it on it's side while water was in basin.

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.

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.

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
