Eureka Boss Capture - bagless upright - green

We purchased one in December and has been working great, however, recently it started making a lot of noise by the roller. We took it apart and examined the roller and belt, and they were fine, however the height adjustment knob doesn't work properly and vibrates loudly. The manual doesn't address this issue at all, can anyone help? Other than the horrible noise, it works wonderfully.

    We have this same issue with our vacuum. We have a 9 month old baby, so we can't even use it because it is so loud that it scares her. I am still within my warranty period (1 year), so I called Eureka, and I am shipping it to them to have it looked at (I live too far from any service center to just take it in). Inconvenient to not have a vacuum temporariloy, but hopefully they will fix the problem.

Eureka Boss Capture - bagless upright NOISE PROBLEM FIXXED!!!
I had the same noise problem as everyone else here and found no solutions on the web. i took the thing apart a few different times to no avail. i read here that it could possibly be the brush bearings but i didn't believe that was the problem. i removed the brush and spun the bearings in my hand and they seemed to be ok, i didnt feel or hear anything wrong. i looked around the house for something to use to lubricate the bearings but i found nothing. i then remembered the all purpose wonder tool that is olive oil. i carefully added some to brush bearings on both sides and spun them in my hand a little bit and put everything back together. Voala! The vacuum now runs as quiet as the day i first bought it. i no longer feel ashamed to vacuum at 11pm and my neighbors can get some sleep :D

are you sure its the height adjuster?
More likely to be the bearings in the brush.

What is the cause of the loud noise in my vaccum it's a eureka boss bagless

If it's a rattling type noise, its possibly something in the fan assembly, including a broken off piece of the fan.
It could also be something loose near the roller brush, including a piece of the belt.

remove belt to brush roll and see if noise persists. if it stops, you probably need a brush roll. at least doing this will narrow down the fault area
