My machine ran over some string,made a funny noise and emitted some smoke,the hand suction pipe at the rear works perfectly, the motor runs fine,but the front of the vacuum will not work.thankyou very much, Thomas.
The string bound up the beater bar (brush), keeps the belt stationary, and the motor spindle is just rubbing against the belt and melting it. remove the belt guard, remove the brush, and the belt. clean off the brush bearings (at the ends of the br ... Panasonic Vacuums
We have the GE sensor microwave WES1358DN1WW. It was made in 5/2009 & bought in July of 2010 brand new. it worked perfect til last week. i put something in it & it started to make a loud humming/vibrating noise. i assumed it was just something ontop of the microwaved & ignored it. 1 min later my food was still ice cold. we tried unplugging & plugging back in & made sure that it was clear of anything but it still makes noise & doesn't heat.

Kirby Sentria Hi, I have a new Sentria & used it for the first time today. It was going fine & then I could smell smoke & it started to make a loud noise so I turned it off quickly. If I turn it on it immediately starts making the noise again & I can see it is all lit up inside like something is burning or sparking. I have checked the roller & it is moving & I have checked the fan which is moving & doesn't appear to be damaged in anyway. This product is from the US & we are in the UK & we are us
Sounds like the motor burned up. not sure if travel adapters will handle a large load like a motor, around 8 or amps. power needs in US are 110 volts ac, 60 hertz.I believe UK is 220 volts and 50 hertz. usually when a vac is brought to eu ... Kirby Vacuums
My Kirby 2HD has started making an odd roaring noise but still works fine. I have taken the front assembly off and cleaned and adjusted the roller and checked the belt. The noise seems to come from the motor housing. I have tried to wiggle the main shaft at the front (bearings?) and it seems tight. Can't seem to get the other housings apart. Any ideas? Thanks, John
It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing ... Kirby Heritage II Vacuum
Was hoovering when my DC04 made a funny high pitched noise then a whirring noise, this was accompanied by a smell of burning and a puff of smoke! Almost sounds like it might be a clutch slipping, is this possible or is it more likely to be a motor burn out?
OK... the DC04 doesn't have a clutch. My best guess is that the belt that drives the brush roll has broken. The smell of burning and smoke puff were probably caused by the motor suddenly speeding up when freed of its burden of driving the brush roll. ... Vacuums
I have the Janome 6600 P. Beginning a seam the thread knotted and the machine made noise and needle would not move either up or down. I manually moved the needle using the handwheel and cut away the knotted thread. I began sewing again but instead of starting at the edge began about a half inch down, forward stitched, reversed to lock threads and problem repeated and received the message to "Stop for safety purposes". Did that. Referred to the manual, tried manual recommendation. Did not work. I

Terrible noise My dyson was working great then started making this horrible noise. I cleaned the bar but noise is still there. I discovered the beater bar went around three passes then froze and started horrible noise again. my husband got the bar turning but after 2 swipes vacuuming it did it again. Can it be fixed or is it time to retire it and buy a new one. Wendy Kiser
That noise is the clutch. A very expensive part and very hard to replace. When a problem with the clutch happens it's generally not worth the time and money to replace.I suggest getting a different type of vacuum, maybe a Miele or Sebo. W ... Dyson DC07 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
We have the Kenmore progressive direct drive (bagless) and have had it for about 3 years. We have taken good care of it, and paid quite a bit for it hoping that it would last for a good long time. It has started making a noise that seems to be an overflow air type of noise coming out of a bottom air outlet opening for when the air flow is blocked. We have looked into clogs, changed filters, and the whole works, to no avail! Quite Frustrating since I love this purple vacuum! The machine started

We have a dyson dc 07 animal the machine was working fine then switched off after returning to the machine minutes later it wouldnt switch on, i removed on off switch cover and used a short piece of wire across the brown wires flicked the wall switch and it worked, aha i thought faulty switch aquired a new one to no avail and now even the short piece of wire trick doesnt work, has the motor died do you think, it wasnt over heating or making strange noises prior to refusing to work
It could be the motor. I'm having to replace the brushes on my DC 05. It appears that you can only get brushes for the YDK motors in the DYSON, not the Panasonic motor. Which might be saying something about the YDK motors. What happens is that the ca ... Dyson DC05 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum
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
Hi Linda,\015\012Sounds like clutch problems, try to move the lever for carpet/floor back and forth a few times maybe it will free up. If it still makes the grinding noise, the clutch assembly will have to be replaced. Let me know, i can even ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My FEIN 9-55-'13 recently started making more noise and is now officially a "screamer". There also developed quite a vibration associated with the noise which made me think it was probably bearings. So I took it apart and found no detectable play or lateral movement in the bearings, they seem fine to me. So I thought perhaps the brushes. The rotor where the brushes ride is quite black but I can't figure out how to get to those brushes, although I don't really think they are causing the noise
This problem is only caused by one thing the motor bearings are noisy, I have never found any other reason, they may look good and fell good but trust me replace the motor and the noise ... Fein 9-55-13 Turbo II Bagged Canister Vacuum
My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?

Panasonic NN-SD776S microwave Start button stopped working. I know, the first thought is a bad door switch because "everyone knows a microwave should not turn on if the door is open." I am experienced with electronics, but even the timer won't start at all. Funny thing is, I had this exact model do this exact thing just over 2 years ago - troubleshot all the hardware until I was lost, finally bought a new one from Costco (June 4/08). And now 2 years later this one craps out - a 2 year timer

My Miele capricorn has started making an odd noise. It seems like something is blocking the engine. I've turned if off and on, and reset it and it still have the odd, almost loud barking noise. The power nozzle also does not seem to be working. I've checked the connections. Right before this happened I was using the vacuum. I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary until this.
Greetings,\015\012\015\012This is a major problem. The Miele vacuums motor should never make a loud noise, period. The way the motor is designed, it's quiet and should be quiet for the life of the motor. There are two motors on your ... Vacuums

Hoover Model U8185-900 beater bar part keeps smoking and burning up We've replaced the part Hoover PCB Display Bridge U8172 three times and the vac beater bar works for about a minute then the part starts to smoke and burns out again. I've taken everything apart but cannot locate anything that would cause this part to burn up. I think if I did not disconnet immediately, he vac would catch my rug on fire. Help? I didn't send back the warranty card, so I can't get any help from Hoover. Any suggest

110-220V Dear Sir, I purchased a kirby sentria vacuum cleaner from ebau two weeks ago. I currently resid in the UAE with 220V power. My maid has plugged the vacuum to work with it unaware of the voltage difference, a terrble noise as mentioned came from the cleaner as well as a smell. She unlugged it and stopped t from operating. Can you please let me know how can i assess the damage? If this model has a switch from 110 to 220V IS there a solution with transfromer or motor to make it work? Thank
You may have burnt up the motor field when it was plugged into a 220V power source. But there are drop down transformers you can get to reduce the voltage form 210 to 110. AS Radio Shack or similar store would have them. ... Kirby G4 Bagged Upright Vacuum
