How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :

Blockage – when a vacuum cleaner becomes unusually loud, it is normally because of a blockage of some sort. This is a problem that is easily solved by turning off the cleaner, check for blockages in the pipes, and remove them. You can also check and empty the canister to remove any possible blockages there as well.
If your vacuum cleaner whistles, this is usually a sign that your device can`t suck in sufficient air. Often, it`s the dust container or bag that`s full. Check these first and exchange them if necessary. If that`s not the case, it could be that the device is blocked.
Worn out bearings on the brush roll will make a vacuum much noisier. This is a good time to check them after cleaning and inspecting the brush roll. Try spinning each bearing by hand. Some brush rolls have only one bearing on the roll, and the other bearing is in the head where the roll is mounted.
The vacuum cleaner motor makes a loud noise and can run only for a short time as the machine gets too hot or the motor gets overheated. What is the cause? Hot or overheated motor may be a result of too much dust or debris (inside the dust bag/hose) requiring more suction power and causing motor overload.
If the cleaner becomes noisy or starts vibrating, it may be because some debris has got tangled around the brush roll or agitator situated in the bottom of the cleaner.
Sound enclosures, noise reduction blankets, sound curtain noise barriers, or sound barrier walls are a few options to consider when reviewing noise reduction materials. If the vacuum pump is indoors, a noise enclosure would be the recommended solution.
Older vacuums may develop cracks in their plastic frame. If one of these cracks compromises the suction in a Shark vacuum, it will start making that high-pitched squeal as a result — even with the hose off. These cracks can be difficult to spot, but look for lines, gaps, or compromised areas with a careful inspection.
You can eliminate whistling of the sump pump hose when using it for dust collection by distorting the hose with a heat gun. Keep distorting different spots on the hose until the whistling goes away.
This means it is best to choose a vacuum cleaner with a noise output that is less than 70 dB. However, the noise levels of vacuum cleaners fall between 75dB to 85dB. Thus, continuous exposure to such noise levels affect a user`s health while also being a sign and source of inefficiencies in the equipment.
Founded in 1909 in Detroit, Michigan Eureka vacuums have been in American`s homes for more than a century. Now we`re building on that experience with innovative cleaning technology to help you clean for years to come.
Grinding noises are often caused by bits of debris getting lodged behind the brushes or into the cleaning head, especially large bits like dry pet food. This will clatter around or jam the brushes to create the noise you`re hearing. A thorough cleaning should put everything right.
Sound does not travel at all in space. The vacuum of outer space has essentially zero air. Because sound is just vibrating air, space has no air to vibrate and therefore no sound. If you are sitting in a space ship and another space ship explodes, you would hear nothing.
If all you hear from the vacuum unit is a click at the when you try to start the vacuum motor from inside the house, then the motor in the unit is dead and has to be replaced. A strong odor from the shellac, which coats the copper coil windings, is an indicator that the motor is about to or has burnt out.
ProSilence bagless vacuum cleaners.

If you`re looking for a quiet bagless vacuum, our bagless ProSilence models are engineered for peace and quiet. They deliver powerful performance to thoroughly clean all floors, and emit low noise thanks to the built-in SilenceSound system.

Vacuum pumps produce noise levels that are usually over 85 dB(A), with some units reaching as high as 95-97 dB(A).
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, certain models of the Bissell Multi-Surface Wet Dry Vacuum are being recalled because the battery pack can overheat, start smoking, and poses a fire hazard.
Clear out hoses, attachments, and brushes of any hair, dirt, and debris. This will allow for restored airflow and should get things going again. Make sure there are no cracks or broken belts impeding the system from running optimally.
This means it is best to choose a vacuum cleaner with a noise output that is less than 70 dB. However, the noise levels of vacuum cleaners fall between 75dB to 85dB. Thus, continuous exposure to such noise levels affect a user`s health while also being a sign and source of inefficiencies in the equipment.
There are many reasons why someone can fear vacuum cleaners and loud noises, including having a hearing condition, such as misophonia or hyperacusis, having a phobia of loud noises (phonophobia) or having a condition such as autism or sensory processing disorder.

Looking for Eureka belt 70646A for a Eureka The Boss upright
ANSWER : I just replaced the belt on my Eureka The Boss Smart Vac (Model 4870D). I purchased a namebrand Eureka R belt from a local vendor. I did my best to follow the instructions printed on the bottom of the machine. I turned on the vacuum cleaner and the belt brush was spinning! I dropped it into vacuuming floor mode and the belt wouldn’t spin no matter what level I put it on.
.
.I called the manufacturer (1-800-282-2886) and spoke with a very nice woman on the phone. While I was speaking with her I noticed that a silver screw was lodged within the “brush roll control” yellow selector switch. With some shaking it became dislodged and I was able to put the “brush roll control” into the hard floors setting and turn the “carpet height adjustment” all the way to the right, so that it was facing the word “low.” I then followed the instructions for replacing the belt again.. (1) remove base plate (2) remove brush roll (3) place new belt around motor shaft and then around brush roll (4) insert left side of brush roll before right side (5) rotate brush roll to be sure belt is centered (6) replace base plate, making sure to insert under 4 little tabs before securing with screws.
.
.It appears that it is very important that the carpet height and brush control adjustment are set to their highest point possible (hardwood setting) in order to get the brush to roll in a carpet setting.
.
.″R” is the correct belt for the 4870 and should be correct for all other 4800 models.
.
.Thank you for posting your problem to this website. If I hadn’t seen that others were having trouble, I would have just given up. I hope this long post helps someone that was in my situation.

Tear in Eureka Upright “The Boss” 4870
ANSWER : Http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=414813&thid=652524
.Tear in Eureka Upright “The Boss” 4870
.Posted by kdunnett on Jun 07, 2008
.I have a tear in the hose of an upright Eureka “The Boss” 4870 vacuum. I cannot find how to release the parts I need to get the hose out and put in a new hose (which I already have) I’ve searched the Eureka site and the owner’s manual – nothing about how to replace the hose itself. Thanks in advance.
.
.Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Eureka 431A Optima Bagless Upright Vacuum. In answer to your question, the owner’s manual may or may not give an example to install the hose only, but on most vacuums the hose sometimes will screw in to the hose cuff on both ends unless if it is a hose assm then it will then twist and turn. Check with the
Eureka website and have them send out a schematic and owner’s manual for you so that you can install your hose properly. Sometimes you have to place hose glue on the end of each side in order for the hose to screw in properly. the website address will be listed below and they certainly should supply you with the owners’ manual and maybe a schematic of the parts breakdown that also may help. If not; check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

There is a rubber valve on the top of Dyson DC14 all floors. When the vacum is locked in its upright position or the hand wand is used there is a whistling sound coming out of the valve. When the vac is used as a floor vac, it does not make the sound. Is this something that I can fix? Is there an obstruction somewhere that would be causing this sound? thank you.
ANSWER : The Fixya user in this repair is giving out personal contact information rather then helping the customer out on the Fixya board. This defeats the whole purpose of Fixya if the “TheDysonTeam” just gives out his phone number and helps the customer over the phone where the repair advice he gives can not be seen by anyone else on fixya. I was also under the impression that giving personal contact information on repairs is strictly prohibited.

My Dyson CDC14 Animal just started making a wierd sound coming from the rotating brush area. I already cleaned around the brush, sounds like a fast rattling sound.
ANSWER : Hello,

Something could be jammed, or not rotating freely, maybe an improper alignment with the brushes, or a blocakage within them. Try to re adjust the brushes 🙂
