the device is a bypass which allows some air flow when there is a blockage. you have a blockage somewhere i suspect hence no suction. check all hoses carefully. take off the base and check the air duct away from the brush roll

I have the same vacuum - it's a clog in the brush area, or where the hose connects to the base. Unhook the hose, like you're going to use a tool. Lay the vacuum flat, so you can stick something in the plastic tube (at the base where you disconnected the hose) without the awkward angle. I use a dryer vent cleaner, but you could probably use a wire hanger. Push through until it comes out through the brush area...should fix your problem.

the motor bearings are starting to fail most likely. You can diagnose the source of the noise by removing the brushroll and belt, could possibly be the brushroll bearings but if you still get the noise when the belt is off its the motor.
