Question about Dirt Devil M084600 Dynamite Bagless Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Ear piercing whistle

Brand new vacuum. It makes a loud screetching whistle as it vacuums. Makes my ears ring after I'm done. I've tried taking everything out and putting it back, like the filter and all it's parts, the brush, moved around the belt, saw nothing caught in it anywhere. Even turned it on without the bag part on it and it still screetched. Please help before I go deaf.

Its an inherent problem with any Dynammite model = the fact that the motor is at the front means that it is extremely noisy.

D.C. 17 makes a loud whining noise when beater brushes are engaged. Normal sound until then. Replaced belt. Still so loud it hurts my ears!

Could be the brush roll, remove brush roll and see if noise is still there when brush roll motor is running.

Shop vac whistles

If you let it continue, you will have a piece of junk. You take the bolts off holding the motor cover on and you lubricate the upper bushing with oil. They are oil impregnated bushings and will soak up a thin type oil best and last longer. Use 10W or 3-in-1 oil or Marvel Mystery oil.

My Kirby G3 makes a loud, high pitch whistle with the hose

I would say you either have something stuck on the impeller or there is a piece of paper or something stuck inside the hose. its not clogging the hose but when the air passes by it. It is making that noise. If you find nothing you may need a repair. May have a bad bearing in the motor. Actually you can also try inspecting the brush on the head. It removes easily from vacuum and should spin freely and quietly.
