Hi!  Almost certainly your vacuum has a blockage somewhere. The higher pitch means the motor is running faster than normal, but it's not overworking, it's actually working less because it's moving less air.  Check for blockages and clear whatever you find (your user manual should tell you where and how to look), and that should be that! Alternatively, it may be that the drive belt to the brush roller has broken. Check that too. I hope this helps.  If not, please write again and I'll try again.

It sounds as if the ball in the tank in shutting down the suction prematurely. Be sure there is a gap of about 3/4 inch between the top of the filter inside the tank, and the lid of the dirty water tank. Without this gap, suction will pull the ball up too soon.

Did you check the belt? A broken belt results in lower strain on the motor, causing it to run faster resulting in the faster speed and higher pitch. This could result in overheating, which will cause the motor to shut off.
If this isn't the problem you'll need to take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for trouble-shooting and repair.

It sounds like the fan blades have worn away until there's basically no air resistance, thus no air flow/suction. The whine is created by the motor turning at a higher speed due to lack of resistance.
The fan wasn't covered by the warranty, anyway.
It's time to either replace the motor/fan assembly or buy another vacuum.

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,

High pitched sound when vacuum is on


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.
