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?


As far as the roller brush goes, yes, it does need to be cleaned. Follow the directions to remove it and clean as best you can of all debris. On both ends of the roller brush there will be two "holders" of sort that connect the brush to the frame o ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

Hi, I have a Dyson DC04, (silver/lime) making ear popping screams! Does not happen all the time, and more noticeable when it is pulled back.The suctions not a problem and no funny smells or strange noises from the motor. Ive taken the base plate off and the belt and brush bar seem fine, but when I turn the belt, it seems to be the motor spindle thats squeaking, almost as if it need oiling, any help please

Noise My Dyson DC08 is making a loud, rough, vibration/noise that seems to be coming from the from the rotating brush housing. I replaced the old belt which was several years old and slipping. When I run the motor with the new belt removed the machine sounds normal. The bearings on the rotating brush seem to be running smoothly when turned by hand both when out of the brush holder and when installed in the machine. I can't find anything rubbing on the belt or rotating brush. I applied a bit o

My G6 kirby stopped working. i have checked the wire for fraying and continuity and found no problems. I have noticed that the foot pedal that turns the machine on doesn't seem to click when pushed on or off either. i have the motor exposed now to check if it is bad, but i am not sure how to pursue doing just that.

I removed the filter from the motor in the ball. After I cleaned it and let it dry, I put it back in. From then on, it makes a moaning noise when I turn it off after I vacuum. I followed directions to clean it and put it back (it's pretty straight forward and fool proof). I've since cleaned the filter a second time, doing the same steps and it seems to have made it worse.

Where are the screws/tabs that hold the kenmore 25513 case together? The vacuum makes a "clicking" noise like a relay is kicking in but the motor will not turn on. I suspect siezed bearings.


The screws that hold the cover are under the spring loaded "bar" for retractng the cord. To get at the screws one has to pry the bar loose! The problem with the motor is that something fell apart within it (small bolts fell out). I do not se ... Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum

I have a Nutone CV-450. When the unit is turned on the motor makes a high pitched whining sound. The suction seems like it is reduced and there is a burning rubber smell coming from the unit. Suction at the unit itself is also reduced. Any ideas about the cause of the problem and the solution?

Bad Motor? I have an upright Electrolux Prolux Heavy Duty "Appareil Industriel" and the motor does not seem to be working and turning the brush. Is there a trip switch somewhere to try and reset the motor? I have taken the plastic cover off on the base of the unit and cleaned it well, but can't seem to get the motor to start again.

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.


It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums

Motor is sparking and smells like burning rubber. When it first happened I thought the vacuum had something jamming the beater bar. That was the smell it had, like when the belt gets burned. But when we turned it over, it wasn't jamming. Took off the base plate and turned it on. The motor area is sparking and it makes a weird noise (I assume that is because the motor fails and restarts). I looked for loose wires, can't find any. I believe I need some sort of part replaced, maybe even a n

I cannot seem to replace the beater bar on my Dyson - it seems to spin OK, but when I turn the vacuum back on and turn it to the 'Carpet" position, it makes a noise that is unbelievable. What's up with that? The belt is intact.

HI, my motorized brush barely turns.It makes a hot rubber smell. I took apart and noticed the spindle the belt turns on discolored from heat. Cleaned it, but still no turning of the brush.The vac is a hoover wind tunnel. As it moved accidentally touched the belt/ spindle and burned my hand a little. Very hot in area. Bright spark from motor noted. Was careful not to touch that part!


That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need: ... Hoover S3765-040 WindTunnel Bagless Canister Vacuum

The gear that turns the dual brushes on my Bissell Spot Lifter 1716 seems to be stripped. The belt looks loose as well, but when I take the belt cover and the brush assembly out, the gear that turns the brushes is loose and appears to be stripped on the cogs. When I turn the machine on the belt turns the gear but the brushes just sit there an vibrate. They make an attempt to turn now and then but not much.

The pump motor in my Bissel Proheat 2x Plus seems to have failed. It was seized so I sprayed WD-40 in it and let it sit for 3 days. Now I can turn it by hand, but when plugged into the unit it still doesn't spin. Here's a picture: http://bbay.dreamhost.com/bissel_proheat_2x_plus/P1070021.JPG I wanted to take the motor out and hook it into another power source to see if I can get it going but it has 3 wires.

I was given a model 6591, plugged it in and it worked but didnt "****" and didnt sound right. I turned it off and removed the hose from the back found a badly plugged hose. Removed the hair plug cleaned filters and when I tried to turn it on again. Now the motor will not turn on or even make a noise. I hear there is a fuse that can be blown? How can I find the fuse if there is one? Thank You Ron

When I was using my Bissell ProHeat 7901, I smelled something hot (almost burnt) and turned off the vaccum. When I turned it back on, everything seemed to be working, but the vaccum part was not making the same sound. The bristles are still turning, but it isn't picking up as much and is leaving quite a bit of lint on the carpet. Could the belts be worn? How do I tell? Thanks!

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

My model 4870 Eureka type K Vacuum Cleaner won't turn back on after it started smoking. I turned it off, checked the belt and filters, and they seemed to be fine. The brush will turn so I don't think the motor is seized up. where do I go from here? Thanks for you help, David Andrews

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
