Check end covers. you might have put the bearing in a bind. Loosen covers and tap on nice and straight. Could be fan on end too. Check for rubbing signs.

My dyson dc24 brush bar will not turn and there is a very loud screaming noise coming from the Hoover

Something has jammed the brush roller and the screaming sound is the motor shaft trying to move the stuck drive belt. The vacuum will have to be disassembled to find and remove the jamming material.

I have a remanufactured lincoln impinger 1000 gas conveyor pizza oven which I believe was converted to a fast bake 1450 model and the main fan motor on the back is screaming.

If the main fan motor is screaming in your lincoln impinger oven, actually that means the motor is faulty. more so the bearing in the motor are worn out and should be replaced, its easier to replace the motor itself but the motor is very expensive. To save money you can actually replace the bearings your self by opening the back cover in which the motor is mounted, then unmount the motor and disassemble it so you can take out the bearings. take the bearings as a sample to a bearing store so that you can get the size correct.
make sure you get bearings that can handle high temperatures and not those with plastic seals ment for wet or water places.

Main fan motor is screaming

Sounds like a dry roller bearing or shaft. If you can remove the fan unit and replace the lubricant or grease, your fan will work again as new. Most of them work in the same principle.

Heat makes a screaming sound - only comes on when on high, air does not come on at all - A little advice and help needed. THANKS

The screaming sound is the blower motor bearing. the fan speed switch controls the grounding side of fan motor once on high it grounds the high speed fan relay. so lower speeds goes through blower motor resistor. this may be burnt out do to bearing is screaming tight to shaft creating a larger ampere draw that burnt it out.

Pump motor making noise but not screaming. Does

Usually this is one of the bearings in the motor. I don't know of a good shop in your area. Check pricing carefully. Sometimes it is only a few dollars more to buy a brand new motor.

Loud screaming sound during spin cycle

The screaming noise is probably from a dry bearing in the motor, it will probably come and go and shouldnt cause to much problem, they are supposed to be self lubricating but sometime they run dry.
