Sometimes, extra noise can mean that there are pieces of debris stuck in the system rattling around. It can be an easy fix—just locate and remove the debris. A loud pump could also mean you have worn bearings that need to be replaced or lubricated.
If you hear a ticking or tapping noise in your engine, the most likely culprit is the valvetrain. This could be due to a low oil level or the need for an oil change, or it could indicate more serious mechanical issues – such as the need for an oil pump replacement.
Usually, when the leak isn`t too bad, you will hear hissing noises coming from the engine. This may also sound like whining sounds or whimpering sounds. For more severe vacuum leaks, the noise is sucking or suction, much like a vacuum cleaner.
Thoroughly clean the dust bucket and flapper by shaking or tapping it to release any dirt that has become clogged if your Dyson is pulsing, stopping, or making noise. Rinse your filter monthly, even if it looks clean on the outside.

the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue
.Most likely you have a damaged commutator. I used to change the brushes on the dyson vacuums but what i found is that it is almost never completely successful. THe Dyson motor is not as good quality as say a miele and when the brushes go they normally cause damage to the commutator. THe best bet is to replace the motor. If you were able to swap the brushes a motor change will be easy for you. If you are in Australia you can get the motors from VacuumSpot or Nelson Vacuums.
.Next turn the dyson dc04 vacuum cleaner upside down and remove the base plate this is done with a large flatblade screwdriver.
.The next step is the brush – you should be able to access the drive shaft and pull the belt off which will free the roller.
.Unclip the small hose which goes from soleplate to the back of vacuum and remove the soleplate itself you will need to apply very firm pressure and only pull each side out a little way because if you go too far you will crack the guide.
.Next is to remove the housing that holds the whole brush assembly. You will see on either side of the vacuum 1 plastic washer (like a circle with a bit taken out) which has to be removed. Once both are off you can gently slip off the body over the shaft that the washers held the body on to. This removes the the body part that moves up and down to adjust your dyson to different height carpets.
.Now you should have basically a “nude’ dyson
.Next step is to remove the 8 torx screws that are spaced around the motor housing. The plastic outer will now come away revealing the last bit of motor casing.
.There is a cover plate that is held in by 4 lugs that can be gently pried back with a small screwdriver and the lid will come off like a tupperware container.
.From here your on the home straight.
.The motor now needs to be pushed out of its little case. The large rubber gasket will make this quite hard as it it designed to hold the motor in but with a fair bit of pressure it will slide out.
.With the motor out it should be easy access to the carbon brushes they will simply screw off allowing new ones to be screwed back on.
.Reversing the process is as simple (after youve done a few) as reversing the instructions and keep in your mind if you have to apply a lot of force it is likely that something is not lined up properly.
.Hope this helps. if you need more tips hit me on the website NelsonVacuums.com.au
