I hadn't run my Hoover F5866900 for some time, it was stored inside the house though and when I went to turn it on, all it does is make this high-pitched noise. It has never done this before. Any suggestions? Thanks for your time.

Re: High pitched noise
It sounds like you may have a bearing problem. The motor bearing eventually gets damaged by the water vapor that is drawn in by the fan. This will cause a high pitch squeel from the motor. It is possible to replace the bearing, but it should be addressed by a professional techician.

Ususally this is caused by a forein object has gotten hung in the suction impeller attached to the motor. the noise flucuates due to the housing flexes with the movement of the handle and rod. the housings are usually made of plastic and something very small can easily get stuck in it and stay for a very long time. The vacuum needs disassembled and the forien object removed from the fan housing... Hope this helps Sincerely Roger
I'm sorry to tell you that the motor is more than likely done.
Generally you will have a burning smell associated with the sparks and whining. You can source a motor at your nearest hoover dealer, but depending on the age of the machine, you may just want to consider a new one. It is hard to say.
try this please : switch the carpet/bare floor dial back & forth 5 times, ending on carpet. Tilt the handle back as if to vacuum upright & lay the vacuum on its side so it is resting on the side opposite the carpet/bare floor dial. Turn the vacuum on.
or try this also if the above suggestion didn't work :
Maybe the belt is broke. You will have to replace the belt before the roller can spin. You must have run over something in the carpeting like string or whatever to have it break. Happens all the time. Get several replacement belts to keep as spares while you're at it as nothing is worse then having to vacuum and no spare belts.
please rate !
High pitched sound is often caused by air leaks in air ducts. This will also cause hoover loosing sucking power and slightly overheating.
If the hoover is overheating a lot, then noise can also come from the motor. In that case the part must be rplaced.
Try replacing the cone filter, the secondary filter, and the insulation at the top of the machine. If that does not fix the problem, then the hoover must be taken apart to clean or repair the air duct.
High pitched noise usally happens when the suction pancake fan fins become loose on the shaft.Usallythere is two or more sandwiched on the motorshaft .. Matter of taking the tin split casing apart and check and tighten :^/
