Vacuum has become very loud screaching sound

Recently became louder and then began to 'sream" when running. Belt is good.Sound appears to be coming from the Motor. I have disassembled unit and found a crack on the fan. Is this the problem? how do you remove the fan from the motor shaft?

Yes, I would say the crack is causing the screaming sound.

Usually the fan (impeller) is held on with a left-hand nut. To remove it, you have to hold the motor somewhere (sometimes you can just hold the impeller), put a wrench on the shaft nut and turn it clockwise. The impeller should then just pull off (with possibly some wd-40 and a little muscle).

I was vacuuming up little shards of glass using the tool connector and all of the sudden the motor made a really loud sound.


Does the machine sound louder than normal since then? If its louder than normal since you vacuumed up the glass then you must likely chipped a fan blade or broke it. Either way it needs a new fan if thats what happened.

Hoover H3030-006 240 V Motor making a loud sound and burning smell


If you have little to no suction, that sound is happening because you most likely have a clog some were in the vacuum.

smell is probably your motor over working itself do to the clog.

also double check your belts on your brushes that they are moving with the motor. smell and sound could come from the brushes being jammed which would cause the belt to freeze and heat up and could burn the belt and or your motor.

if it is still running though your not in the red yetm so triple check that the machine is cleared off all clogs and jams in the belts and brushes.

I have recently replaced the belt and filters. The belt is in the correct position and the rotating brush moves freely. The motor is very loud. It still vacumns but I'm afraid the motor will burn up.


Does it sound different than it did before you made the repairs to it or does it sound the same. Just so you know some of the upright vacuums on the market today sound like a jet airplane landing in your living room.Canister vacuums are generally quieter than uprights. The Filter Queen is a very quit machine and has been around fpr about 75 years.They are rather costly though.

When the vacuum is turned on it is a lot louder


The fan in this machine can become out of balance. The fan needs to be replaced even if the blades are all there.

Loud noise


I think you damaged the belt. I ran over a sock once and it made a grinding noise but still worked for several months after the incident. Finally, the belt broke off. I had it replaced and now it doesn't make that sound.

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!
