8 identical screws holding the cover on. The control panel at the back has a screw and 2 push in clips. It lifts off and unclips the power.

My S7580 vacuum cleaner is very noisy


Hey, this is Jeremy with Crucial Vacuum,

To remedy a noisy vacuum cleaner there are typically four main areas to check to restore proper functionality. By following the steps below it should be back to normal in no time!

1. Dirty Filters- If your vacuum has suddenly become very loud, check the filter, as it may be dirty. When the filters on a vacuum become excessively dirty, the vacuum may start running louder because it is working hard to create suction. If your filters are dirty, your vacuum is likely not suctioning appropriately, either. To fix this problem, simply remove the filters in your vacuum, rid them of the dust and debris and rinse them out with warm water.

2. Clog- Clogs are often the reason as to why your vacuum cleaner is being extra noisy. While vacuuming, something may get sucked up such as a button or a small toy, for example. Additionally, the clog may be making the vacuum work harder. Check all tubes and hoses in the vacuum to make sure there are no obstructions.

3. Broken Brush Bearing- When a brush bearing breaks, the vacuum cleaner gets loud and starts to vibrate. To remedy the problem, remove the brush and replace it

4. Broken Fan- The fan in the motor of your vacuum may be broken, causing the vacuum to run louder than normal. When dirt runs through the motor of the vacuum, it can collect on the fan, causing it to break. If the fan in your vacuum motor is broken, it will need to be replaced. This is a slightly more tricky process and may require you to bring in your vacuum to a repair shop to have the part replaced.
