I have a new Hoover BH50015 hand vac. The noise is terrible. It sounds like the bearing are bad. When you take off the cup and the filter and listen to the motor as it slows down after turning it off it definitely sounds like bad motor bearings. Hoover tells me the loud noise is normal.

I have a Model U57809RM Hoover Cyclonic which started making a very loud noise. Changed both belts on it but the noise persists. It seems to happen when I put the handle in the 'engage to vacuum' mode. The minute I start to lower it the noise begins. Help!
Hello,You could have a broken fan in the motor and need to replace the fan. If the noise is coming from the brush area of the vacuum, you probably have a broken bearing in your brush roller and would need to replace the brush itself. ... Hoover Vacuums
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 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 would OIL come from by the right side back wheel?I have a hoover wind tunnle model # u6425-920. Does the drive moter have oil in it if so and it is leaking should we replace the motor?
The motor does not have oil in it. The onnly thing I can think of is that if soemone had tried to free up something by using a spray lubricant, and not it is running out. I've never seen this issue. You would have to let a repair shop look at it. ... Vacuums
No motor when switched on two red lights flash,cleaned hoover, put back together motor started,then cut out after a few seconds
I would double check your wiring, Make sure all wiring is tight. No cracks, no pinched wires. If needed, bypass the switch and see if it will stay running. If so, switch would be bad. If it's the same, then you have a wiring problem or a worn motor a ... Sebo Automatic X1 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a Hoover model F5876-900 SteamVac Plus 1200. The motor is making loud noises and it seem to come from the bottom of the motor itself, what can I do to fix it myself.
I cleaned out my dyson ball as it smelt when i hoovered, cleaned filters, washed out canister and took the screws out of the front bar so i could clean near the brushes.. now its making a high pitched noise and when i switch it off it makes a noise like an engine shutting down! Have i disturbed the motor?
Hi its Darran at Dyson. The screws on the base of the cleaner head should not have to be removed to access the brush bar so it is possible that the brush bar has come out of alignment, hence the noise the machnie is making. Pl ... Dyson Ball DC24 Bagless Upright Vacuum
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
