The fans inside most inexpensive household items have no bearings on the fan motors shaft causing the squealing or load noise. They can be TAKEN APART AND CLEANED ALONG WITH A DROP OF OIL INSTALLED AT EACH END OF THE SHAFT. THIS WILL PROVIDE A QUIET MOTOR. PLASTIC HOUSING DO RUN FOR SOMETIME UNTIL DUST &DIRT GET INSIDE CAUSING THIS NOISE

I have a kirby G10D after replacing fan it will not turn easily


If you mean that you can't turn the shaft by hand then you probably have removed motor to replace the fan. When installing it back you should have tightened screws on the bottom of the unit first and then ones that are inside (with large washers). If this is not the case then we would need more info on what exactly you mean by "not turning easily".

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

Hi, I just replaced my belt for my Hoover Upright Futura with replacement belt 38528040. Now it is making a very loud noise with a lot of vibration. What would be the cause? Could it be the new belt? It...


It is not likely to be a belt problem. I would remove the belt and brush assembly, turn the vacuum on, and see if it is still loud. If it is, the motor fan is broken and will need replacement. If it sounds normal, the problem is in the brush assembly. Examine the ends of the brush for damage or play in the bearings. The brush may need replacement ( part # 48414081 )

When the vacuum is turned on, it makes a HORRIBLE noise. I thought the belt was bad. Removed it, looks fine. Turned on the unit w/o the belt/roller brush. Same noise. I don't know what else to check. Help...


You have probably broken the motor fan. An out of balance fan creates a great deal of noise and vibration. Fans are inexpensive, but require a good deal of disassembly for replacement.

Kirby G4 motor is very loud. It has suction but seams to be a lot louder than when we bought it in 1996.


Hi There,

Most likely it's just the fan that is making the noise rather then the motor. The way the Kirby vacuums are designed, anything hard that's vacuumed up such a coin, or other hard things can break the fan.

In order to check and see if it's your fan, remove the front part of the vacuum that contains the roller brush and belt. If you're not sure how to do this, here's a video that shows you how to change the belt, but will also explain how to get the front bell shaped housing off:


Once you have the front cover off, look inside the vacuum directly behind the motor shaft. You will be able to inspect the fan here. Turn the motor shaft which also turns the fan, and see if there's any cracks, or if the fan blade is broken. I think most likely you'll see the fan damaged somehow.

Here's a video repair that we've put together that explains step by step on how to replace the suction fan on your Kirby:


Part 2:


Hopefully this helped you fix your Kirby. Please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave feedback if this was helpful to you. Thanks so much,
