If the noise is not something in the brush roll or the brush roll bearings or shaft is damaged the impeller may have something stuck in it or it may be broken.

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Often when an upright is making a rattling noise it can be something caught in the roller and every time the brush turns it knocks against the body and since it turns really fast it can sound quite bad. Take the roller out and clean inside that area and see if that helps. Hope it does. Happy Vacuuming :)

I would try changing the belt. Even though the belt may look fine it can be stretched or worn and that can cause loud noises. You can get dyson belts here:

Hi there, as per your information i guess its a problem of power transformer. He can't supply the proper power in the motor & thats why the noise will come from the transformer. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

SOURCE: loud noise from brush roller

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Maybe worth checking the brush bar and cleanerhead for a blockage or for any damage.

If you cannot find a problem, please call our Helpline on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards

Suggest you check the wheels to see if they are moving freely. Also check the beater brush to see that it is moving freely. Be sure the belt has not broken. If it has, replace with a new one. Also take the time to clean the beater brush of any debris and spray a little WD40 on both ends of the beater brush axle.

Have a bagged Biss ll Powerforce vacuum that has started making a loud rattling noise under the base of the motor compartment. Noise is louder when using the hose. Suggestions? Thank you!


Something broke or got sucked in and is trapped in there. Put it up on a table and take the bottom apart, it's time to clean the roller anyway :)

Why does my riccar supralite vacuum makes a loud rattling noise like the roller is banging around?


You have something wrong with your brush roll or you have damaged the fan. Remove the brush roll and belt and turn the vacuum back on, if the noise is gone it is likely something wrong with your brush roll, if the noise persists you probably have a broken fan. You have to remove the motor and fan housing after removing the top cover, unscrew the bolt holding the fan on and install a new fan (you can get one from any Riccar or Simplicity vacuum dealer)

Lay the vacuum upside down, remove the bottom plate, remove the brush roll and belt, install new belt around motor shaft and brush roll, pull on brush roll to stretch belt far enough to drop brush roll back into place.

Our Riccar SupraLite Upright Vac used to glide across the floor so easily, but now we have to push it pretty hard. This just recently started. What can be wrong?
