Vacuum Roller making a loud noise

My husband was vacuuming the other day, and all of the sudden our vacuum started making this really loud noise, just when the vacuum was running. We took it apart, and it definately appears to be something wrong with the roller, because when we had the power on with the belt off, it didn't make the noise. We think it might be hitting something somewhere, but haven't been able to figure anything out. Our belt is good, the roller spins just fine by itself, there isn't anything caught up there. . and we're out of ideas. Any takers?

Your roller brush is starting to fail. If you unscrew the ends, you will find a lot of hair wound around the stem. You probably have a warped plastic end the holds the bearing. This is my problem now.... I am looking for a new roller brush as I write this. I found one for $30. Good Luck.

I have the same problem and I think is the bottom plastic plate that holds the rolling brush. check the left side where the rolling brush goes that is the problem!!!!!!

Loud noise while running

Vacuums typically make a loud noise when running. Can you describe the noise or why you think it is unusual?

Loud noise

This is the clutch as it jams up in the brush. Usually happens with rugs that are not secured to the floor.

Loud noise??

I have the exact same problem. I've taken the thing apart and cannot figure out what is causing the noise. It's not the belt and it doesn't seem to be coming from the engine. It sounds like the spinning brush is hitting something, but it's not, that I can see.

Extremely loud

Mine started making a lot of noise and my husband noticed the brushroll was slightly bent. I have no idea how this happened, but I noticed several people online were having the same problem. I ordered a new brushroll and popped it in and solved the problem. The noise before I did this was horrible! It is now back to normal.

Loud Grinding Noise

Take out the brush block and see if it will power on, if not then probably your motor has gone bad.

Loud noise

When the motor bearings start to go bad, they will make a loud noise. Some motors if a piece broke off of the fan, then it also will make a loud noise. You may have to replace the motor.
