High pitch grinding noise

Borrowed it from a friend that got it at a pawn shop.... When we turned it on it was amazing all of the nasty water from the carpet. Well when after about 3mins. it started to make a high pitched grinding noise and the brushes will not move. I have taken it apart and the motor still turns on and works. The gears that move the brushes are still good and no broken tooths. Any one have any I ideas??

I have a Napoleon Pellet stove insert Model NPI40. When the fire burn rate is extremely low it seems to operate normally. However, when I turn the heat up even a little I eventually get a high pitched...

my theory is based upon 1st hand knowledge with a newer EPA compliant freestanding wood burner, with the air-tight and high efficiency ratings.

give it some thought

High pitched noise

It sounds like you may have a bearing problem. The motor bearing eventually gets damaged by the water vapor that is drawn in by the fan. This will cause a high pitch squeel from the motor. It is possible to replace the bearing, but it should be addressed by a professional techician.
