My miele flamenco II vacuum cleaner motor makes a loud grinding noise what's wrong with the motor?


Hello Louis Casado,

Most of these motors make noise because the bearings have gone bad and need replacing...
(loss of lubricant or other-than-round ball bearings).

Alternatively... the rotor brushes have picked up something that is clashing with the housing... and needs to be resolved.

Clean it all... really good & run it without a load...

If all else fails to remedy your situation... pull the beater brush and cut everything but the fixed bristle rotor brush... clean it... cut it free... check out all clearances... and return it to service

Hope this helps!

Happy hunting!

How to clean brushes on hoover steam vac


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Cleaning the brushes on your unit is crucial in maintaining your Hoover performing at it's best and it is very easy to do. First, make sure your unit is off and unplugged, and make sure to remove the clean and dirty water tanks to avoid any possible leaking.

With the handle in the upright position, tilt the unit back and rest it on the floor. Grad the brush assembly and pull firmly until you remove them from the unit. Clean the brushes with running water until the water runs clear and the brushes are clean.

You get to the belt & brush roll area from the top. On the hood of the vacuum, right behind the word Altima, to the right & left sides, you will see a screw. Remove them, lift off plastic hood. Check belt if broken or just stretched too big to catch brush to turn it. Check ends of brushroll for any hair, thread buildup & clean it. See if end caps turn easily. If one or both ends do not turn easily, the brush roll would need to be replaced.

I have cleaned & cleaned this thing! It runs for about 2 mins & stops, says "Clean Brushes"! and now it's very noticeable it's not picking up well... but is picking up a bit. I take the dust bin...


Ok, this is a "Brush Height Adjustment" issue. It will probably work great on a hard surface but on carpet the brushes bog. If you've taken the unit apart already...Sorry....do it again. When you do, you'll see a String which allows the brushes to "Float" on different surface heights. Loosen the screw a little and pull a bit more string through. Re Tighten the screw and put it together enough for a test run. Now reset the roomba.To reset the Roomba, power the Roomba on, and press the Spot, and Dock buttons together for at least 8 seconds. Until it plays a tune. The clock, and any schedule is erased at this time. Try running the Roomba with the dust bin removed to see the brushes spin easier.

Second method, is taking off the bottom cover, and removing the battery. While it's removed, and not plugged into the charger, press the clean button for at least 20 seconds. This will erase the memory. Replace battery, and cover. Run the Roomba to see if the brushes start to spin. You can also remove the brush housing by removing the 4 screws and reseating it, to see if it was a bad connection, since you have the bottom cover off.

Roomba keeps saying "Clean Brushes"!!


Have you made sure the brushes aren't clogged with thread and hair, and that the brush bearings are still good?

1) remove the brush guard.
2) remove the brushes
3) remove any hair or debris using the cleaning tool

4) replace the Roombas brush bearings

5) replace brushed and brush guards

If this doesn't work then, try the following:
  1. Power off the Roomba.
  2. Remove the dirt bin.
  3. Place the robot upside down on a flat, padded surface.
  4. Check for any dust or dirt obstructing the Cliff Sensors (with Roomba upside down, the sensors are located in the four rectangular areas just inside the edge of the front bumper).
  5. Next, press the front bumper in to make sure it springs back.
  6. Make sure both yellow brush caps are installed correctly
  7. Make sure the main brush and the flapper brush each have a yellow bearing installed correctly.

Brush cleaning, wheel thump


rchu is exactly right. No need for a complicated disassembly. If you have never pulled off those end bearings/caps, the hair may be very impacted, but removing it should solve the problem. The instructions will tell you by color (yellow for mine) which pieces come off for cleaning. Be sure to remove all such pieces. If the fit seems tight, it's probably because a lot of stuff got stuck in there. Be gentle but firm, and things the should come off will come off. Once you've cleaned all the pieces, the thumping should be gone.
