Question about Hoover U6446-900 WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
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.
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.
