My miele flamenco II vacuum cleaner motor makes a loud grinding noise what's wrong with the motor?


Hello Louis Casado,

Most of these motors make noise because the bearings have gone bad and need replacing...
(loss of lubricant or other-than-round ball bearings).

Alternatively... the rotor brushes have picked up something that is clashing with the housing... and needs to be resolved.

Clean it all... really good & run it without a load...

If all else fails to remedy your situation... pull the beater brush and cut everything but the fixed bristle rotor brush... clean it... cut it free... check out all clearances... and return it to service

Hope this helps!

Happy hunting!

My brush stopped spinning, but instead makes a loud plastic grinding noise.


Both ends of the brush roll should spin freely. You need to replace the brush roll.

DC07 grinding noise


I had the same problem with mine, I took it to a repair shop. The problem is where the belt passes through from the brush and goes inside the machine. Move the belt over a bit and you will see that a plastic guide has been bent over and is pressing onto the brush, which causes the noise. Just bend it straight again and it stops.

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush...


Trace the path of the suction into the tank and see if there is anything loose or ingested. Also, remove the brush and clean as best you can. Perhaps there is something caught in it. Lubricate where it makes sense with some WD40.

Burning smell loud grinding noise when tilted


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The rattle is the clutch engaging. It can happen for a couple of reasons. The best case for you is if there is something caught in the brush roller that you can simply remove. The next best is that the end caps of the brush are full of junk that you will be able to remove. Its not easy getting the brush out to clean there but it can be done.
If the brush spins in your hand easily when the brush is removed then it is the clutch itself. THe main roller often melts which is caused when the tension on the belt gets to high thus creating too much heat. THis can be resolved only with a new clutch.
Hope this helps, if you have more questions dont hesitate to reply or if you need parts just visit

Happy Vacuuming :)

Makes a loud noise like a grinding noise then smokes comes out and it smells like burning rubber? When I take the (rod) brush off with the belt then run the vacuum there is no more noise? Please help me...


Your belt is worn and stretched and so it is slipping on the motor drive shaft. That is why it is noisy and smells like burning rubber. You simply need to replace the belt. You can get replacement belts here:

My dyson D17 is making an incredibly loud noise, like grinding, when the bottom brush rotates.


Remove the bottom cover plate and rotate the brush by hand. Look for things that make noise like stones caught in the brush path, bad brush bearings, bad drive belt.

When I tilt back handel and turn dial to carpet It makes a loud grinding noise


On a Dyson this engages the brush bar. Two possible faults: Debris (hair etc) caught in brush bar - cut out with knife. Or - damaged drive belt - pieces of belt striking casing. Last, but unlikely cause, debris in bearings of brush bar - replace brush bar.

Loud Grinding Noise


Take out the brush block and see if it will power on, if not then probably your motor has gone bad.
