Bissell Cleanview Helix Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleanview Helix Bagless Upright Vacuum, 95P1\015 When the vacuum is on, it makes a very loud, fast, low pitched whirring sound in addition to the standard quieter vacuum noise. It almost sounds like a series of clicks. It also seems to be running hotter than usual. I've taken out the brush and it and the belt seem to be perfectly fine. I haven't noticed a difference in the cleaning abilities (though I stopped very soon after noticing the noise), but I'm afraid to continue using it until the problem has been solved...I noticed that it didn't make the noise when I first started it up or when I pushed it forward, but when I pulled it backwards it started and it continued when it was stationary. When I pulled out the hose to use an attachment the sound persisted. ..The side filter is clean and the dirt has been emptied. I just bought this vacuum a few months ago and it's barely been used, so it would be a shame if it can't be fixed.\015
How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
You may be hearing excessive noise because your filters are dirty. To clean them, watch our Cleaning Filters video. A damaged Brush Roll could also be the problem. To fix, first make sure your vacuum is turned OFF and unplugged.
If your machine is making an abnormally loud noise it is likely due to the belt slipping or the brush roll being incorrectly installed, follow these steps to resolve: Turn off and unplug machine. Use a Phllips-head screwdriver to remove 3 screws, 2 in the belt cover and 1 on the brush roll mount. Remove belt cover.
What should I do? 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.
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.
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.
One of the most common reasons for your shark vacuum (and most vacuums for that matter) making a loud suction noise is because there is a blockage. They`re a very common issue, and easily fixed. Blockages occur when there is a large enough build up of dirt or dust that it blocks the air flow to the vacuum.
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.
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.

My vacuum is making a loud whirring sound and is hotter than normal.
I replaced the belt on my Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum and the brush roller rubs and makes a very loud noise when turned on. I have gone exactly by the manual instructions and made sure the belt and end caps were on correctly, but the bristles still rub the back and it makes a very loud noise. Without the brush roller in the vacuum, it sounds and runs normal. What could the problem be?

.I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
.The Royal Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum has just bushings in the ends of the brushroll and not bearings and once the bushings are bad I suggest that you replace the brushroll in the vacuum and put a new belt on the vacuum as well. There is no way to repair the bushing s in order to it to work properly. The suggested belt change is every 4 to 6 months and to store the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. Suggest looking at a local vac dealer. 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.

i think i overloaded the vacuum i think and it made this loud roaring noise.
the vacuum tends to make thos noise when i am hoovering after 5 minutes or so.
thanks in advance Tom….
If the filter bag is bad and didn’t trap all of the dust, then it got into your motor, so you may have a problem with your motor now.
Dirt devil vacuum cleaner–trouble vacuuming dirt and pet hair on carpeting –is the problem with the spinning brush which contacts the floor, not contacting the carpeting?? I thought (when I bought this vacuum) that the aforementioned brush was adjustable to various heights of carpeting. Sometimes, it seems like nothing is being vacuumed up –unless I have just put a new bag on the vacuum… Do I need or can I replace the spinning brush on the bottom of the vacuum so it kicks up and vacuums
Try replacing the belt. Rubber belts stretch out after about a year.

My eureka vacuum was fine but then suddenly got loud. We cleaned the filters and replaced the belts, but it is still loud. We have not seen any clogs in the tubing or in the vacuum. What other problems could the vacuum have to make it loud?
The noise could be coming from the Beater Bar’s ball bearings.
I purchased a brand new Eureka Pet vacuum, sorry don’t know exact name but it the one that has the self cleaning duster on it. Last night I used the vacuum on my carpet, it was working fine until I accidently sucked up the corner of a scarf that was hanging off a couch. I shut the vacuum off, pulled out the scarf and and resumed vacuuming. Much to my dismay the suction on the vacuum had ceased. Can you tell me if there is a reset button on the vacuum? The vacuum does not appear to be damage
If the motor is running, there should be suction. Possible problems depend on whether it’s a canister or upright and are:
.A clog in the hose, UR or canister. Detach hose. Drop small coin in one end and lift hose causing it to roll out the other. If it does, no clog in hose. Drop same coin into hose opening on power head. If it rolls out, no clog in PN.
.Broken fan blades, UR. Needs to be taken to shop for repair/replacement.
.A reset button is for use if the motor isn’t running, so won’t have anything to do with the suction.
I have a Dyson vacuum cleaner …upright….all of a sudden my vacuum started making this awful sound…like a loud buzz…but only when I have it on carpet….when I have it on “floor” mode it’s fine….sometimes(although seldom) it has worked without buzzing…and it’s LOUD!!….I have only had this vacuum for a year….and no…I have never picked up any coins or hard stuff.only use it for 2 rooms.the rest of the house is wood floors…….what shall I do?
It may just be, that on carbet the brushes make noise that you dont hear on woodfloors.
.If there is a hights adjustment, set it higher for shaggy carpet and lower for berber.
