SOURCE: loss of suction
very simple fix. took me a good hour to figure this out but... first take off your brushhead. via popping the clip so all u have is the circle showing then turn on the vacum using the hose. put the hose over the hole where the brush head goes.. and give it a shake etc to losen up whatever it is u got stuck up in that hose. mine was xmas tree/cat hair mix. which is the death of any vacum lol.. but that noise on the top of the can is cause by suction loss. just use the hose to **** out whatever u got jammed in there and use your finger if u need too. and then no more canister noise.

Because this unit is bagless there are more gaskets to seal the suction portion of the vac. you are most likely missing a seal, can you remove the basket and place your hand near the suction on the vacuum? it is shielded so you wont lose fingers. if there is suction there, look at the bottom of the basket for a gasket, same for the top
