Bissell 8990 CleanView Bagless Upright - Loud noise

I was vacuuming up some Cheerios and dried peas my toddler had dropped on the floor when the vacuum started making a roaring noise. I cleaned the filters and hoses and replaced the belt, which did look a little stretched in one spot, but the noise just got lower rather than going away. The brush spins and there is still plenty of suction, but the noise is driving everyone crazy.
Any idea what the problem is?

Sounds like maybe your motor went bad, part # 2031052. Would sell for about $60. When the bearings go bad, they can be real loud as well if the fan on the motor when it gets damaged.

Model #169171 not sucking up dirt

I have the same problem. When I pull the hose out it seems to have plenty of sucking power though. I dont know what the problem is and why it wont pick up much from the carpet. The stuff it does pick up never seems to make it into the canister either.

Vacuum sounds like an airplane after 1 year of use.

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.

It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing needs to be replaced.

Bissell cleanview vacuum poor suction

The next thing that you need to do is replace the belt. Even if it's not cracked or worn, many times it's too loose, and it won't turn to rotor efficiently.

Believe it or not, just replacing the belt may be all that you need to do!
