    i think the bag is fine, if a little dusty.

    beam emailed me and i rang them to discuss the problem.

    beam reckon the motor is stuffed (judging by the high pitched whine, their words not mine).

    it will cost me approx £95.00 quid for a new motor. does anyone know if i can buy the motor from anywhere other than beam?.

    any tips regarding changing the motor, is it handy enough to diy?.

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.

    The motor will have a number on, it will start with 116512-13, this number is just an example. They usually are Lamb motors and that is their number. You might try a repair shop near you and see if they can get it for you. Also if in the motor area, if it is very dusty, then the filter bag is not doing its job and needs to be replaced. The motor is easy to change, just don't mix up the wires.

Dyson vacuum, Vacuuming when I sucked up some wires. I pulled them out and the vacuum started making a loud noise. Now when I use it that happens and now it sparks.. What should I do?


quit using it and take it to a repair shop sounds like your motor is shorting out. However i would suggest buying a new vac since dyson motor replacement can be quite pricey.

Hi My bissell proheat 2x 9500 is making a loud noise when the brushes are moving. I replace both belts and cleaned the brushes. Can you think of anything else it could be.


Hello there,
Try using other brush attachments, as broken bearings in a brush attachment will cause noise. If these troubleshooting techniques do not work, you may need to service the engine.
Remove the filter and bag of the machine and make sure that they are not clogged or full of debris. Clean any filters according to the instructions for your model or replace the bag. Excessive debris will make the engine run noisily.
Inspect the hose of the vacuum and remove any large debris that may be clogging the inside of the tube. Large amounts of dust, as well as stones or other hard materials that bounce, may cause a loud noise in the engine.
Remove the housing that conceals the engine of your machine and inspect the fan for damage or clogging. Remove any dirt or debris that may hinder the movement of the fan. Inspect the fan for any damage such as bent or excessively sharp blades. Replace the fan blades as needed; contact your vacuum manufacturer if the fan is damaged. The replacement part will include instructions.
Tighten the fan with a ratchet if it is loose on the assembly. A loose fan will make a rattling sound as the motor revs.
Wipe dirt and dust from the frame of the engine. Large quantities of dirt or dust around the motor can cause it to overheat, which can cause vibration and loud noise.
Look for corrosion around the engine. If the engine is corroded, it must be replaced.
Grease the bearings of the engine if you hear a grinding noise from the vacuum. Greasing is often performed through ports in the engine, or by removing the bearings. However, the actual greasing method is model-specific. Consult your owner's manual or send the vacuum to a service professional for this service.
Inspect the inside of the vacuum cleaner for other worn parts or broken pieces. Worn or broken pieces can cause loud noises to occur. Remove the broken part and order new materials from the vacuum manufacturer or take the machine in for service.
Hope this information was helpful to you. All the best. Elect_Comp

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.

It is quite possible, it just needs lubed. The motor comes in direct contact with dirt so, you have to make sure the front bearing has a drop of oil on it from time to time. If it starts to scream at you within one month, after oiling, the bearing needs to be replaced.

Loud rattling noise.


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Often when an upright is making a rattling noise it can be something caught in the roller and every time the brush turns it knocks against the body and since it turns really fast it can sound quite bad. Take the roller out and clean inside that area and see if that helps. Hope it does. Happy Vacuuming :)

A rubber smell could be a belt and/or brush roll. But a loud roaring noise could only be from the motor, which would mean replacing it if that is the cause.

Bissell 8990 CleanView Bagless Upright - Loud noise


Sounds like maybe your motor went bad, part # 2031052. Would sell for about $60. When the bearings go bad, they can be real loud as well if the fan on the motor when it gets damaged.

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.
