Some of these have a relay mounted down by the motor, and that may be what you are hearing. You can go to sears.com, click on the parts link, put in you complete model number, it will come up with a parts list and a picture breakdown of your vacuum.

Dyson making loud noise


Not sure if this will help but mine sometimes make a loud noise as well and its usually due to hairs stuck UNDER the belt in the motor area. Get some sharp skinny scissors and long skinny pliers and get under that belt, cut the hairs and use the pliers to pull out those hairs. That noise is usually because too much hairs stuck under the thing that turns the belt and the belt cant spin so it makes a lot of noise. When i do this it solves the problem of noise, but eventually hairs will collect in there again and make the noise again so i just take the hairs out again and problem solved.

Very loud "jet like" noise,please


Hi,

Vacuums are noisy, but shouldn't sound like a jet.....

Trying to find out what is wrong depends on what kind of noise it makes, i.e. high squeal, vibration, whining and where it comes from.

Here is a webpage with troubleshooting advice on noise in vacuum cleaners. Hopefully you should be able to track down the problem. http://www.ehow.com/how_7493926_fix-noise-vacuum-cleaner-motor.html

If you need further help with repairs, please reply back. Thanks,

Hi. My machine works, but is beginning to sound loud. My husband says it sounds like things are rubbing together and it needs oil. I have lost my manual and don't know where to oil it. Please help.


It is not any oiling but the motor must be making the noise due to a damaged bearing/bush. An oiling might redduce but might not be a solution.
But in the first place we need to open to confirm as the source of noise is the fault itself.
Maybe a reset can solve the issue.

Kirby G6 clicks while in neutral


Bracket cam assembly (see and buy HERE). It is worn so it does not disengage gears completely. On the part listing you will also find the instructions on how to replace it.

Generic problem for all Vacuums
Hi my vacuum (Russell Hobss 2200 Bagless HEPA)
Hi my vacuum (Russell Hobss 2200 Bagless HEPA) seems to have just enough (not loads) of suction till it reaches the cleaning head. The head does not appear to be blocked - but there is then almost no suction at all.
It also makes loads of noise when on- and an even louder noise when turning off.
is it fixable or is it dead?
Thanks


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Well there seems to be maybe a few problems, the head may be clear, but the hoses could be clogged and or the HEPA filter could be clogged as well – if the hoses and wands are clear and the filter clean you may look @ a motor replacement depending on the cost or to buy a new vacuum and in some instances you can trade in your old vacuum for a new one – but check it fist from the suction head thru the hoses, wands and filters, B4 you decide to purchase a new one or to replace the old motor with a new one depending on cost. A rule to live by – the item cost more to repair that to replace – replace the item, if the repair cost (as an example) say $50.00 to $60.00 and to buy a new one would cost $100.00 – buy a new one.

Blue scrubbing pads


Harry,
The Scumbuster replacement pads can be purchased at Ace Hardware, as well as other hardware stores. You can also buy them online at TotalVac.com and TheGreatHardwareStore.com They are fairly inexpensive at all of these places. I hope this helps solve your problem. If you have any further questions, please feel free to e-mail me.

Thank You,
Lynn
