Re: high rpm

These machines are noisy to begin with, but will become worse if anything is allowed to enter the fan area of the motor. I have seen debris clog the front fan and put the motor out of balance so it will really scream when it runs. This work is best left to a competent professional

Hoover makes a loud noise and does not pick up

Issar 702:

Take the machine to a room that has no carpeting, (this is 'gonna get messy :-) First, make sure that the machine is unplugged from the wall, then remove the wand with the hose and verify that the hose, wand and vacuum head are not clogged up... check carefully, some clogs or items stuck in the hose and wand assembly can be hard to find! Then check the hose from end to end making sure that the hose is clear of debris. Then open the canister and check to see that the gasket around the top of the canister is not damaged, then check the belt coming off of the motor driveshaft is not binding or damaged. You should be able to rotate the belt by hand with the machine off and unplugged.

When running it makes a very loud quite high pitched long clicking sound . What can I do about it as I do not want to continue to use it like this

If the noise is continuous from switching on and slows down to a stop when machine is tured of it has to be some thing on contact with the motor or the brush roller the brush roller is easy to check the motor isnt but is less likly to go wrong

There seems to been a high pitched sound in the motor. I'd describe it as a 'dry' sound, and the high pitch of it is very loud. I want to stop vacuuming because it's so loud. Are there any oil/greasing...

High pitched noise is not good. It may indicate that a bearing is going out. I would not use Kirby as it may lead to burned motor.

If you feel that it vibrates quite a bit too - then it may be only broken fan blade.

Fan blade - you are looking ar around $40-$50 and if this is a motor bearing - $60-$80. If anyone wants to charge you more - we will repair it but you will have to pay shipping both ways (roughly another $30 both ways all together)

Ohhh yeah - try it with the hose. If no sound then brush roll bearings may be bad...

Good Luck,
If you want to send it for service - go to click on SERVICE, print form, fill out and ship it here.

Rainbow E series sounds "whiny" and loud while running

The whinning sound may be the bearings are bad. This will have to be taken care of or it will wear your motor brushes down very quickly. It is not generally caused by the filter, but by not be cleaned properly and may have been stored on its water basin.

High pitched sound when vacuum is on

You may be loosing your bushings on the motor,if this is an expensive machine it may be cheaper to have it fixed,if not it will burn up eventually.Also try taking the beater bar out and make sure you don't have something rapped around it causing a noise.

My vacuum is very loud ...

If it sounds really high pitched or like a airplane i would bet your motor is shot in which case it would exceed cost of your unit.

My Hoover runs at a high rpm

Hi. Check the carbon brushes they may be breaking down.

Query relating to Hoover Portapower (UK model S1126) Hi, I have the old UK version of the Hoover Portapower (model no S1126) which is beige coloured with an orange and black stripe on the left hand side. I bought this machine off EBay and it is immaculate and according to the seller has hardly ever been used. The machine works very well and with great suction. I turned it on however the other week to clean a room and it had been running a while a few minutes before cleaning this room and was fine. On turning it on again I noticed the motor did not sound quite right for a second or so as it sounded a little slow to power up fully but then was fine so thought nothing of it. When I turned the machine off again, I heard a squealing sound coming from the motor as it winded down. I have tried machine since and hoovered car with it the other day as I thought I would test it incase the motor was burning out and there was no problems or strange sounds at all. Any idea of what the squealing may have been and will it now be ok in the future? When I hoovered the car the machine was in use again for about half an hour so would have thought if the motor was on the way out after it squealing a few weeks ago it would have blown whilst hoovering the car which it didn't. If I experience a motor burnout in the future what exactly happens and will I get injured by it? Many thanks if anybody knows what the squealing sound could have been. I'm thinking possibly some debris or something got sucked into it? I know my model is not the C2094 but thought with it being more or less the same machine, it wouldn?t make any difference.
