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)

SOURCE: Loud noise

When the motor bearings start to go bad, they will make a loud noise. Some motors if a piece broke off of the fan, then it also will make a loud noise. You may have to replace the motor.

SOURCE: DC17 Animal - loud noise in roller bar

We were able to get in touch with the Dyson support people and they told us this model doesn't have a clutch in the roller bar. The support person helped us walk through looking at the vacuum and it turns out the belt was stripped and they are sending us a new replacement belt. Case Solved!!

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:

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 :)

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.

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?


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.

Loud rattling noise.


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 :)

Vacuum Roller making a loud noise


Your roller brush is starting to fail. If you unscrew the ends, you will find a lot of hair wound around the stem. You probably have a warped plastic end the holds the bearing. This is my problem now.... I am looking for a new roller brush as I write this. I found one for $30. Good Luck.
