Question about Hoover 5416-900 WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum

2 Answers

Loud noise when running.

We have a Caddy Vac upright cleaner. It makes a extremely loud noise when turned on. It still picks up dirt, but sounds like if you lost a muffler in your car. The noise is constant.
Thanks, Joe

Bad bearing or fan in the motor is most likely the problem. You would have to replace the motor.

Bissell heavy duty 9x cyclonic vacuum cleaner has loud noise when brush roller is turned on


Inspect the area around the brush roll. There may be something stuck somewhere in there. Remove the brush roll to see if the brush roll end caps will spin freely. If there is hair or debris restricting the brush roll may be causing noise.

Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC33. The brush control is designed to make a ratcheting sound to warn you if something is obstructing the brushbar. If you've checked the cleaner head and brushbar already, I'd encourage you to get in touch with us directly as we'd appreciate the opportunity to provide further assistance.

You can call us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US) - please have the machine to hand when you call so we can run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you.

Vacuum sounds like an airplane after 1 year of use.


the motor bearings are starting to fail most likely. You can diagnose the source of the noise by removing the brushroll and belt, could possibly be the brushroll bearings but if you still get the noise when the belt is off its the motor.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You probably have a broken fan or fan blade and it is need of replacement. I am un-sure of the brand name or model # but I feel you would need to contact your local vac dealer. So If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
Thanks, Don – The Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.

remove belt to brush roll and see if noise persists. if it stops, you probably need a brush roll. at least doing this will narrow down the fault area
