SOURCE: Does not pick up anything and makes weird noise

I had the same problem with very low suction and weird noises, the orange light kept coming on.
I always empty the cannister and clean out any hair from the roller. I would take the filter outside and clean it as good as possible. I don't know if I can post a picture on here or not, but I will try. It is unbelievable how much hair comes from long haired girls. Particulary my daughter. Back to the point...
I was cleaning out a drawer one day and came across an extra filter. I put the new filter on, and its like brand new again!
Man, did I feel like an idiot! Just needed a new filter.

SOURCE: Kenmore Progressive Direct Drive Upright - noise and bad suction

Had the same problem tonight. Took the entire thing apart only to find there was a much simpler solution. Check the small hose that runs from the brush rollers where the longer hose (on the back) attaches to the side of the vacuum. Easiest way to do this is to lay the handle down and stick something (coat hanger worked good) through it until it comes out of the head. I found a pretty good sized fuzz plug in mine. As soon as I removed it, everything worked great again - and no noise!

SOURCE: Vacuum sounds like an airplane after 1 year of use.

the motor bearings are starting to fail most likely. You can diagnose the source of the noise by removing the brushroll and belt, could possibly be the brushroll bearings but if you still get the noise when the belt is off its the motor.

Samsung vcu366 making loud noise but picks up


what does the really loud noise sound like? Is it a loud, whining sound? if so, the motor may be getting ready to go out. Also check that the belt isn't stuck-though you would smell burning rubber if that were the case.

Miele upright vacuum makes loud noise and dust comes out at bottom


It sounds to me like one of the hoses is plugged, probably the one that comes from the brushroll. That would make the dust and dirt come back out the front and would not let the vac pick up like normal. Clear the plug and you're machine should start cleaning better again.

Hoover makes a loud noise and does not pick up


Issar 702:

Take the machine to a room that has no carpeting, (this is 'gonna get messy :-) First, make sure that the machine is unplugged from the wall, then remove the wand with the hose and verify that the hose, wand and vacuum head are not clogged up... check carefully, some clogs or items stuck in the hose and wand assembly can be hard to find! Then check the hose from end to end making sure that the hose is clear of debris. Then open the canister and check to see that the gasket around the top of the canister is not damaged, then check the belt coming off of the motor driveshaft is not binding or damaged. You should be able to rotate the belt by hand with the machine off and unplugged.

I have a Samsung 4320 vacuum cleaner which has started making a loud blowing noise as if the hose is split. I can't find a split in the hose and it isn't blocked. Also it isn't picking up very well. ...


Most vacuums have an air duct on the hose to adjust the amount of suction. If this becomes opened, you will hear the sound you've described and the suction will lessen. Check the wand and the hose and see if you notice a sliding piece that can be moved to enlarge or decrease an opening in the wand or hose. Use this to close the opening and your machine should work as it's supposed to.
Hope this helps and good luck!

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush...


Trace the path of the suction into the tank and see if there is anything loose or ingested. Also, remove the brush and clean as best you can. Perhaps there is something caught in it. Lubricate where it makes sense with some WD40.

Envirovac kicks debris back at my feet and is loud


It's clogged!
Many so-called "environmentally friendly" vacuum cleaners have multiple stage filters; the usual configuration is a standard filter followed by a HEPA filter or equivalent. Standard filters can be a paper bag or a bagless, removable container.
From time to time, the secondary filter will get clogged, so it doesn't matter whether you change the bag or empty the container, performance will not improve.
If you have access to compressed air, try removing the secondary filter and blowing it clean with a high pressure air nozzle. If that doesn't work, check the hose to make sure it's clear. If you are using a rug beater attachment, make sure it has not clogged at its inlet.

Loud noise/Sounds clogged


You could have a clogged air filter and vacuum is not getting air to motor. You could have hair and string buildup on ends of roller brush. You can put a vaccum hose over a broom handle to clean it out. Also, check the little elbow of the hose at the bottom f vacuum where it bends.

Loud whistling noise from back of vacuum


On the back side of most kenmore vacuums, there is an air relief diaphragm that, when the motor is sucking but there is no air flow, will pop, causing the sound you heard. check your hose for blockage, check your bag and or filter for blockage,even your attachments/wands can become lodged with debris. Often, after a few, the motor will get hot and the machine will shut down. This is a thermostat on the motor that protects it from overheating. I am quite sure that this will solve your kenmore woes, fine choice in vacuum, kenmore, tried and true. hope to have helped! Have a super, and hopefully sucking(ha ha) Sunday
