Question about Riccar Vacuums
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

the ends of the roller have something wrapped around them.see if you can pull the ends off so you clean the caps and bearings

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:
