Having problems with your Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

Began making loud squealing noise

\015 My Kirby Generation 3 began making a loud squealing noise from the area over the rear wheels. I bought this one new, and it has always been used properly with no 'abuse'. Is there a port or opening that I am not aware of where I can oil the workings?? How can I check for bearing damage?? I am in a small town with no serviceperson, and am not sure where to start.\015\012\015\012Help! Company coming Sunday, and need to waltz with Kirby before they arrive!!\015

Sorry thats probablly the transmission going out it could be the main unit itself, if thats the case time for a whole new trans, but sometimes its the mechanism that turns the trans off and on, and those parts can be replaced independantly from the transmission iself but you would have to tear the whole thing apart to get it out but more importantly back in. a local vac shop with more than five years experience should be able to fix it.

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 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?

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. When it makes the loud noise, it does vacuum fine but the noise is just unbearable

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.
