Motor sounds loud and high pitched. Suction seem ok, can't find any blockages. Cleaned filter at top of removable canister. Exhaust seems hot and low. Can there be a blockage within the motor housing?

My vacuum is making a high pitched sound and has no suction from the hose?


hi, what this points towards is a blockage either in the pipe or where the filters are, if you dont unblock it then it will over heat and blow the motor.

This is a very common fault for this make of vac and they dont tend to last long anyway.

Your best option would be to remove the part you empty and take out any filters you can get access to give the filters a good clean by banging them on a wall to remove any build up of dust and hair.

The have a look at the pipe try and take the pipe off the usual place for blockage is where the pipe goes into the vac so check here for blockage its usually just a build up of stuff you have vac up that has caused a blockage.

as you have no suction from the hose you would then have no suction at the floor part so dont try using it like it is . you need to remove the hose its either screwed in or held in by two plastic clips that you can push with a screwdriver once you have undone this you should be able to see the blockage.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

If it sounds really high pitched or like a airplane i would bet your motor is shot in which case it would exceed cost of your unit.

Sounds like a bad motor bearing. If it is, then you would have to replace it. Could be the brush roll, did you check the ends to make sure they turn easily?

High pitch


Sounds like you have a clog. Make sure the filters are clean, replace if it has been more then a year, check the inlet down by the brush roll, your clog maybe there.
