This sounds like something is caught in the brush roller. It is not uncommon for something like a pin, or nail or something of that nature to get caught in the roller chamber and when the roller spins, it will rub on the roller producing that sound. Sort of like putting a playing card in the spokes of your bike when you were a kid. Take the bottom plate off and remove the roller. Inspect the area around the roller for any foreign objects. While your there, check the belt for wear and tension and also check the roller bearings for any material that would interfere with it's smooth rotation. You should also check the hose intake for blockage.
