Having problems with your Fein Vacuums ?

It emits a very high loud noise. It seems to pick up ok, but seems to be laboring.

Answers :


Problems such as loud noises may arise if the vacuum motor is not taken care properly. The motor may need to be oiled for noise reduction.

Vacuums are noisy machines in general, but it is always possible\015\012 to hear when the vacuum is making too much noise. Before you throw the \015\012machine away, first try to find the source of the noise. Shut the \015\012machine off to see if the noise was caused by a large object in the \015\012hose. Also try using other brush attachments, as broken bearings in a \015\012brush attachment will cause noise. If these troubleshooting techniques \015\012do not work, you may need to service the engine.
  1. Remove the filter and bag of the machine and make sure that they are not\015\012 clogged or full of debris. Clean any filters according to the \015\012instructions for your model or replace the bag. Excessive debris will \015\012make the engine run noisily.
  2. \015\012
  3. Inspect the hose of the vacuum and remove any large debris that may be \015\012clogging the inside of the tube. Large amounts of dust, as well as \015\012stones or other hard materials that bounce, may cause a loud noise in \015\012the engine.
  4. \015\012
  5. Remove the housing that conceals the engine of your machine and inspect \015\012the fan for damage or clogging. Remove any dirt or debris that may \015\012hinder the movement of the fan. Inspect the fan for any damage such as \015\012bent or excessively sharp blades. Replace the fan blades as needed; \015\012contact your vacuum manufacturer if the fan is damaged. The replacement \015\012part will include instructions.
  6. \015\012
  7. Tighten the fan with a ratchet if it is loose on the assembly. A loose fan will make a rattling sound as the motor revs.
  8. \015\012
  9. Wipe dirt and dust from the frame of the engine. Large quantities of \015\012dirt or dust around the motor can cause it to overheat, which can cause \015\012vibration and loud noise.
  10. \015\012
  11. Look for corrosion around the engine. If the engine is corroded, it must be replaced.
  12. \015\012
  13. Grease the bearings of the engine if you hear a grinding noise from the \015\012vacuum. Greasing is often performed through ports in the engine, or by \015\012removing the bearings. However, the actual greasing method is \015\012model-specific. Consult your owner's manual or send the vacuum to a \015\012service professional for this service.
  14. \015\012
  15. Inspect the inside of the vacuum for other worn parts or broken \015\012pieces. Worn or broken pieces can cause loud noises to occur. Remove the\015\012 broken part and order new materials from the vacuum manufacturer or \015\012take the machine in for service.
Good luck.

There seems to been a high pitched sound in the motor. I'd describe it as a 'dry' sound, and the high pitch of it is very loud. I want to stop vacuuming because it's so loud. Are there any oil/greasing points/spots? If so, how do I find them?

High pitched noise is not good. It may indicate that a bearing is going out. I would not use Kirby as it may lead to burned motor.If you feel that it vibrates quite a bit too - then it may be only broken fan blade.Fan blade - ... Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum

I just used my Bissell Proheat, when I heard the vacuum sound get lower and lower then suddenly something "gave" and it got very loud and started emitting a burnt rubber smell. It still worked to put liquid into the carpet; seemed to have trouble getting it out. I checked the tank, filters, belt, and roller and all seemed OK - but when I started up again and looked down I saw sparks in the motor/belt area and shut it down immediately. Any thoughts?

The bearing that is located at the top of the vacuum motor has failed . Because of that the shaft of the motor's rotor is out of position and the pulley attached to it has started rubbing on the other pulleys, giving you that smell. the spark appear ...

My Bissell BS3920F upright (similar to the 10N6F) has been working wonderfully for the past 3 years but suddenly seems to not pick up dog hair as well as it used to. It has been pulled apart by my husband to ensure nothing is blocking the hoses etc and when running the suction seems to be there. It seems to grab the dog hair and leave it in a straight line directly under the unit without picking it up. I then disconnect the hose and use to hose to pick up the dog hair.

I have a Eureka Altima vacuum cleaner that doesn't pick up very well. The suction seems fine but the brush roller doesn't seem to pick up from the top of the carpet. When you lower the height of the vacuum the belt rubs and smells horribly. How can I get the vacuum to pick up better?

I have the yellow altima vac. for a while now I can not get the darn thing to pick up properly. Or should i say keep it up.. The vac does seem to be getting everything picked up but as soon as you turn it off, you have a mess under the vac.. I have checked for clogks and can't seem to find any.. I have removed the hose, Nothing there.. And yep have removed the yellow thing inside the trash cup.. Is there anything else you could suggest??

If it smells hot, then there's a strain on the motor no doubt about it. Check the suction channel behind the sole plate and remove all of the hoses to check for a clog. It could well be that there is a clog inside the machine after the dust channel f ... Eureka Altima Upright Vacuum Model 2996AVS Vacuum

My electrolux oxygen cannister has the "bag change" light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won't pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn't help.

You may have a clog in the hose, and/or the inlet by the brush roll. A clog will turn on that light as well as a full bag. ... Vacuums

My dyson seems to have lost its suction therefore is not picking up anything yet i have found that when my dyson is standing upright it has a little more suction but nothing like how it use to work. This has only happend in the last 2 weeks. I sanded a floor & though the sander picked up majority of the dust i did use the dyson to pick up the excess and it is since then that my dyson has not been working to its full potential.

I cleaned out my brush in the bottom front, cleaned out the small tubing going into the canister, and the canister itself. I also changed the filter.I snapped everything back into place, but Since then, it doesn't seem to have any suction and there seems to be a space between the canister and the bottom of the vacumm where the canister sits. At that area, you can feel air coming out when trying to vacumm and it just doesn't pick up, it seems to be just blowing stuff around.

You need to really look at it some thing is out of line you shooed not have\015\012any spaces in the top or bottom\015\012pull the canister back out and look at the pins that you lined up with the\015\012to ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

When I vacuum w/ the brush control in the on position it make a really loud noise, almost like a grinding sound. I have looked at it and nothing seems to be wrong, but I notice that the pin that engages the belt seems to vibrate a bit, possibly creating the noise. It started when I accidentally got part of a plastic grocery bag caught in the brush. Could it have stretched a belt? Nothing is caught any other place and it only makes the noise when the brush in in the on position.

Yes, the belt could have been stretched and is now vibrating and hitting other parts and creating a noise if much of the bag got caught under the belt. If you have another belt for this vacuum, please put it on and see if the noise stops. If it does ... Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel Cyclonic Bagless UprightVacuum

I have a Napoleon Pellet stove insert Model NPI40. When the fire burn rate is extremely low it seems to operate normally. However, when I turn the heat up even a little I eventually get a high pitched noise that seems to be coming from the convection blower. Changing the speed of the blower has no effect on the noise level. I cleaned the blower but did not remove it. There was very little dust on it. Cleaning had no effect on the volum or pitch of the noise.

The hose works great, but the head of the vaccuum does not pick up anything !!! I checked every opening that may have been clogged, but nothing came up. When I hold my hand under the brush/roller, it seems to be putting out more air than intaking air. Particles "dance" on the carpet, but don't get "sucked up" into the vaccuum ? I have had the vaccuum only 1 year, so the brushes should not be a problem. I changed the bag, and checked the belt. The belt and brushes seem to be OK. ?
