My Electrolux is about 3 years old. Never had any problems with it until recently, it is LOUD.

Does it just have issues from not being used for about a year? (Last house had no carpet).
Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that you have a broken fan, in every vacuum I have seen with the loud noise such as you described, it has been a broken fan or fan blade and is in need of replacement. You can try to do it yourself but I suggest going to your local vacuum cleaner dealer for service with the problem. Remember, a suggested belt change if the belt is flat would be 4 to 6 months and If you have a geared belt the belt change would be one year or better depending on wear factor. 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. http://electrolux.comCustomer Service Electrolux Home Care Products – North America PO Box 3900Peoria, IL61612 1-800-896-9756 Thanks,Don – The Vac Man Go Ahead.Use Us.

With the smell and the noise, it's likely the motor is shot. Unless it's seen heavy use, this is unusual for an Electrolux of this age. Or it could have been used to vacuum sheetrock dust, glass, or even liquids, possibly without your knowledge. Or "made to fit" bags were used, allowing more dust to get inside the canister and into the motor.
Unless other parts/accessories need replaced, it's much cheaper to have the motor replaced than to buy a new vacuum.
I recommend taking it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for a definite diagnosis (should be free), cleaning, and repair if needed. The technician will also let you know what other problems there are.
If you leave it for repairs, make sure you are given a copy of the work order for the vacuum that includes: type and model of vacuum, serial number, accessories left, your name and address, and an estimate. You'll need this to get your vacuum back. It's a good idea to also have this information written down at home.
I don't know what your question is, but replacing a motor for Electrolux, now Aerus, should be done by an authorized Aerus Electrolux service tech. The uprights are especially tricky to take apart and reassemble correctly. The address and phone number of the Aerus store/service center nearest you can be found at the site below.
This is a major problem. The Miele vacuums motor should never make a loud noise, period. The way the motor is designed, it's quiet and should be quiet for the life of the motor. There are two motors on your Miele canister. One of the motors controls only the suction of the vacuum, while the other motor controls the power brush. Which one of your motors is making this horrible noise? You can tell this by removing the wands and power brush so that you just have the handle of the hose by itself. Now turn on the vacuum, do you still hear this noise? If yes, then this is a problem with your suction motor, and you need to bring this in to have an authorized Miele repair center take a look at it. The reason I say that is because you have a 7 year warranty on that suction motor, so if something is wrong with that motor, then this will be covered under Miele warranty. If it's the power brush motor that's causing the sound, this probably will not be covered unless the vacuum is under 1 year old. If it is the power brush, please just use the clarificaiton request here on Fixya and let me know, I'd be more then happy to try and walk you through diagnosing the power brush motor with you.
