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.

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.

try taking the hoses off, first. Check and see if their is a clog. Ususally if their is one, its in the unit itself and not the hoses. TO get at the clog, try using a metal cloths hanger. Its the only thing i have found around the house that works at getting at clogs.

It sounds like the bearings in the motor are shot. You can try to get a replacement motor, or if you're a mechanical genius type, you might be able to repair the motor bearings. If the shaft is worn, you'll have to buy a new motor.
You can try oiling or greasing them, but they're hard to get at (and sometimes sealed) and this rarely has worked, in my experience.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
