Re: 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.

Vacuum is making a loud noise

Is the smell rubber or electrical. If rubber then the belt is slipping and needs to be replaced, they stretch after awhile. Also is the brush roll turning freely, or is it bound up, it may have to be replaced. If the smell is electrical, then probably the motor is going bad and will have to be replaced.
