The brush needs to be removed and cleaned, also take the sole plate off and check for obstructions. The noise you are hearing is the motor protector doing its job. When the brush does not spin freely the clutch engages and keeps the motor from burning up. I WIll attatch a diagram for you to take the unit apart and check for obstructions and worn parts. Something is clogging up the pathway for the dirt!

Why doesn't my dirt devil vision turbo have any suction through the hose yet there's good suction at the hose connection to the canister?


The hose is probably blocked. If possible reverse it (put the intake of the hose on the canister connection) that should suck out the obstruction. If that fails try to carefully push a broom handle into the hose, preferably from the end that connects to the canister. Put the hose back on normally and see what happens.

Dyson dc28 dirt channel will not stay together when reclining handle


There is likely an issue with your changeover valve which switches the airflow from floor to handle. Inspect closely to see if you can see what is not working properly.

2013 Oreck Vacuum . How can I check to see if it is stopped up?


If it scatters the dirt then it's definitely clogged up at the nozzle just behind the roller brush. Turn the sweeper upside down and stand it on the handle. Then look under the roller brush. I have two Oreck's in my house. You can take a screwdriver to loosen the clog and dump out the dirt. Don't try to pick up pine needles as these are sticky and will quickly clog up any vacuum sweeper.

near the bottom of the vacume where the hose bends down to the floor sweeper, check to make sure there is no blockage. this is the most common problem with vacume suction. you can use a wire coat hanger to help loosen the dirt and debris from the line and it is sometimes easier to clean properly if you remove the bottom plate ( like you would if you were changing the belt ). also while you are getting dirty and having fun, this is a good time to clean the air filter, ( tap it out good or/and use a brush or air compressor to clear and clean ).

No clogs, work fine, but makes a very loud wailing sound? what could it be?


My Dirt devil Reaction does the same thing. So I took apart the motor and it was crammed w/ dirt then I decided to clean it out. next time I vacuumed my house it was a lot quieter. The guy from Jones sew and vac said baggless vacuum filters most of the time fail and let dirt get in the motor and start to scream. I read a lot of things saying Dirt devil Reaction is the most common vacuum to get dirt in the motor and start to wail then get worse & worse and get to the point where they start to almost scream. P.S if you let it scream for along time of use it will give the motor permanent damage and you will smell electrical burning, if that happens it will be too late so you will half to buy a new machine. To get to the motor you can take the dust contaner off and take the black filter then use your down stairs vacuum and get a small attachament and stick it in and vacuum it out,if not have two vacuums borrow one. If that doesn't clean it out you will need to take all the plastic appart and realy get to the motor good. If my advice dosn't help it is ok to still use it, it will just be loud until the motor of it is totally fried. This should work it worked on my Dirt devil Reaction. I'm sorry if it doesn't work out. :D
