Some vacs have two belts. Is urs also self powered? If so, has a separate belt. With model # can give better info.

My vax has just made a funny noise and now appears to be running on half power


If it's under warranty, take it back to your place of purchase as it sounds like the motor has blown. Otherwise you will need to buy a new one.

I think the motor has blown. When turned on the vacuum makes a very loud, low roaring sound and it smokes terribly.


Yep, you are correct! Unfortunately, it's probably time to get a new one. I wish I had better news for ya.

Good Luck!

It was making a funny noise, then a burning smell, and smoke coming from under the cylinder which collects the dirt, then switched itself off. I have checked for blockages and can't see any


your motor is burned up. stop using the vacuum immediately due to possibility of fire. this is usually caused by the inner seal on the bottom of the cyclone lifts up or gets pinched and doesnt seal with the bottom lid.

My machine ran over some string,made a funny noise and emitted some smoke,the hand suction pipe at the rear works perfectly, the motor runs fine,but the front of the vacuum will not work.thankyou very...


the string bound up the beater bar (brush), keeps the belt stationary, and the motor spindle is just rubbing against the belt and melting it. remove the belt guard, remove the brush, and the belt. clean off the brush bearings (at the ends of the brush) of the string and make sure the ends spin freely from the brush. replace the belt with a new one, and put it all back together.

Dyson DC07 is very loud, roaring from the motor


It usually gets louder as the filters clog up and eventually burns out. Try replacing all the filters and giving the bin and the vortex generator a good blow out with compressed air. Fluff can stay inside and cause the motor to strain hence the increased noise.

It must still be under warranty -used to be 3 but now 5 years -so if it doesn't improve contact Dyson and they will repair it free of charge.

Smoke coming out of my Kenmore Canister Vacuum Model 22550300C


Sounds like a motor err. Could be repaired by a professional but it never be as good as a new one. Also they you might not find anyone to repair it because the replacement motor might cost more than a new vacuum /considering it's age the motor will be hard to find and that makes it more expensive to repair./

I suggest you to buy a new vacuum.

Hi folks, my beam vacuum makes a very loud roaring noise quite often. the problem started when i was vacuuming up a quantity of vermiculite from my chimney. i think i overloaded the vacuum i think and...


If the filter bag is bad and didn't trap all of the dust, then it got into your motor, so you may have a problem with your motor now.

No suction


Bissell has made this model along with all of the older cleaners obsolete along with the parts for them. I would buy new.
