You may be loosing your bushings on the motor,if this is an expensive machine it may be cheaper to have it fixed,if not it will burn up eventually.Also try taking the beater bar out and make sure you don't have something rapped around it causing a noise.

Making loud high pitched noise and no suction. Belt seems fine


Sounds like something is clogged/blocking the intake hose. Pull off your bin & see if you can feel/see anything blocking that hose that everything goes thru.

You have debris on the roller clean it all and lubricate the the side pivot points with a proper spray. Thats my guess.

There seems to been a high pitched sound in the motor. I'd describe it as a 'dry' sound, and the high pitch of it is very loud. I want to stop vacuuming because it's so loud. Are there any oil/greasing...


High pitched noise is not good. It may indicate that a bearing is going out. I would not use Kirby as it may lead to burned motor.

If you feel that it vibrates quite a bit too - then it may be only broken fan blade.

Fan blade - you are looking ar around $40-$50 and if this is a motor bearing - $60-$80. If anyone wants to charge you more - we will repair it but you will have to pay shipping both ways (roughly another $30 both ways all together)

Ohhh yeah - try it with the hose. If no sound then brush roll bearings may be bad...

Good Luck,
Rocky
