Vacuum shaking badly right up to handle and very loud noise

After using the vacuum on the stairs, it is now making a very loud noise and the whole unit up to the handle shakes like crazy. I replaced the belt - (the belt was fine), but whole unit still shaking badly and making very loud noise?

Could be a broker motor retainer. There should be two motor retainers in this model, when one is borken, it causes the unit to
shake and vibrate.

Do you hate vacuuming stairs?


  • If you have stairs that at have carpet you should vacuum them.It is difficult with most any vacuum. I recommend that for people that are using a canister vacuum ; this is the one you pull around with you on a hose.I recommend taking the handle out of the wands and plugging it directly into the power nozzle. The power nozzle is the piece that has the roller bar in it or some people call it a beater bar! If you remove the wands from the equation you will find that you have much better control of the pwr.head. This will allow you do do a better job and not have to stand back five feet from the head and on stairs you will find this to be much more convenient. If it is to short then you may try using just one of the wands if they come apart. Some now have telescopic wands that you can pull out just like a telescope does again you have moved three feet closer to the task at hand and thus making it easier to control the head.
  • For people that have an upright machine; I recommend getting what is called a sidekick or a rug rat. These are little mini power heads that are run on the airflow of your vacuum.They attach on to the hose and you can get right non the stairs with it and it is very light and versatile. You can even vacuum your mattress with it or your car. The rug rat is sold by most vacuum stores and are compatible with almost all machines.
  • I hope this makes life a little easier .
  • Good luck and thanks for reading my tip!

Miele upright vacuum makes loud noise and dust comes out at bottom


It sounds to me like one of the hoses is plugged, probably the one that comes from the brushroll. That would make the dust and dirt come back out the front and would not let the vac pick up like normal. Clear the plug and you're machine should start cleaning better again.

On the first day of getting my new Miele vacuum it started making a clunking noise. It was after I tried doing the stairs which is very hard to do because the it is so heavy. How do I solve this noise...


Is the "clunking noise" when right after depressing the handle release lever? Also your Meile has a 39 foot cleaning radius to cleaning the stairs should not be difficult, unless you're picking the vacuum up and using the brush roll. They make a turbine tool the attaches to the hose end that is fantastic and makes these hard areas easier.

My Kirby g3 is making a loud noise and the Fan is stoping to fast


POSSIBLE CAUSES: 1) Sometimes there is a piece of debris in the fan case. (Not likely, but possible) Take the power head, handle and cloth bag off of the Kirby, pick it up and turn it with the fan toward the floor and shake it to see if something falls out.

If there's nothing in there and it still makes the noise, you most likely need to replace the fan/impeller as it is probably cracked or broken. You can sometimes see fan damage by removing the power head, looking into the hole in the front of the Kirby and slowly rotating the fan by using the shaft in front. The damage can't always be seen that way, but if you can't see it, you'll need to take the fan case off so that the whole fan is visible to make sure. I have written complete instructions that should lead you through the whole repair.If neither of these things are found to be the case, check the carbon brushes. I don't have a guide written for this yet, but my switch repair guide (link below) will help you break down the Kirby to get to them. Unscrew both brushes, take them out and look at them. The remaining length of brush will pop out of the holder and if they are shorter than 1/2 inch long, I recommend replacement. (they are not expensive)

My dyson DC17 makes a loud noise when i tip the handle down to make the brush spin on the floor?


Loud noises are usually caused by worn belts, unbalanced roller brush or debris in the roller brush. Check these things. Here is a link to the belt you need:

Hoover started to make loud noise


It sounds like a bad motor. Take it to a local vac shop and they should be able to order the motor for you.

Loud noise


When the motor bearings start to go bad, they will make a loud noise. Some motors if a piece broke off of the fan, then it also will make a loud noise. You may have to replace the motor.
