Question about Hoover U8147-900 WindTunnel V2 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Hoover bagless windtunnel has a whistle

My brand new vacuum has a LOUD whistle. I've tried to isolate when exactly it whistles, but it doesn't seem particular...when I am using just the hose, or brushes....it whistles...extremely annoying! Could I have forgotten to remove something when I unpackaged it?

Loud whistling noise it is just going on five years old when I pull it backward a loud noise emmits


If you whistling is only happening when pulling back on the machine, the problem is with the connection between the bag housing and the swivel neck. There is a rubber gasket between the two, located on the bottom of the bag housing. Check to see if this seal is in place. If it is there and in good shape, check for excessive wear on either the swivel neck or bag housing. Windsor Sensor Vacuum Seal 5163 86144910 allstar javelin

Shop vac whistles


If you let it continue, you will have a piece of junk. You take the bolts off holding the motor cover on and you lubricate the upper bushing with oil. They are oil impregnated bushings and will soak up a thin type oil best and last longer. Use 10W or 3-in-1 oil or Marvel Mystery oil.

Whistle noise from filter


Try moving the filter a little while it is running. This is a common problem caused by the air bypassing the filter. The more clogged the filter is the more it will whistle but sometimes it will whistle with a new filter. Sometimes you may get it stopped for a while but then it will start up again or come and go.

My Kirby G3 makes a loud, high pitch whistle with the hose


I would say you either have something stuck on the impeller or there is a piece of paper or something stuck inside the hose. its not clogging the hose but when the air passes by it. It is making that noise. If you find nothing you may need a repair. May have a bad bearing in the motor. Actually you can also try inspecting the brush on the head. It removes easily from vacuum and should spin freely and quietly.

Ear piercing whistle


Its an inherent problem with any Dynammite model = the fact that the motor is at the front means that it is extremely noisy.
