Did you check the brush roll, the ends maybe aren't turning freely. May have to replace it, (Part # R98Z6064) I assume you put the correct belt on it (Part #S01Z6000). Are the sides ok where the brush roll sits in?

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.

Loud noise and appears the belt is slipping


Generally you will find soil and string of some sort wrapped around the drive spool. Make sure you unplug it before starting and it might be quite hot.

Makes a loud noise like a grinding noise then smokes comes out and it smells like burning rubber? When I take the (rod) brush off with the belt then run the vacuum there is no more noise? Please help me...


Your belt is worn and stretched and so it is slipping on the motor drive shaft. That is why it is noisy and smells like burning rubber. You simply need to replace the belt. You can get replacement belts here:

Has started making a rhythmic noise, not too loud. Maybe a belt?


Excellent question and description.
Generally a belt with a broken tooth will rattle like a machine gun if defective. Simply lay the had upside down. You can also inspect for hair and thread wrapped around the end of the brush roll. If you remove the belt turn it inside out to roll between your fingers for inspection. Look for signs of fraying or cracking. be sure to check your tension when reinstalling, there should be a bit of slack but not enough to let the belt slip if you were to jam the brush with a hand or old sock

My vacuum makes a really loud noise when I turn it on. It was working and now it smells like something is burning. I check the belt- it looks ok.


The belt may look okay but it still can be stretched or worn and can be slipping on the motor shaft and thats why you have the burning smell. I would try changing the belt. Here is a link to the manual and a link to the belt you need:

Loud noise


I think you damaged the belt. I ran over a sock once and it made a grinding noise but still worked for several months after the incident. Finally, the belt broke off. I had it replaced and now it doesn't make that sound.

Hi i have a miele


Sounds like you have a bad brush roll, it may not be turning freely. If the belt is getting hot means that it is slipping, so check the brush roll.

Vacuum is making a loud noise


Is the smell rubber or electrical. If rubber then the belt is slipping and needs to be replaced, they stretch after awhile. Also is the brush roll turning freely, or is it bound up, it may have to be replaced. If the smell is electrical, then probably the motor is going bad and will have to be replaced.
