Question about Vacuums

Open Question

Why is my vacuum so loud?

My vacuum is really, really loud. Everything works, but should it be sooo loud? What could the problem be? I've cleaned all the filters, did everything the troubleshooting manual said to do. The motor works just fine. If this is just how loud the vacuum is, I'm getting another one.

    I have a Dirt Devil too, and it suddenly started to be very noisy. No clue why, but it sounds really bad.

You have to clean out the hose under the bottom of the vacuum cleaner. To do this you have to remove the bottom plate the covers the brush it has about 6 screws. Also remove the brush and belt in order to thourhly clean it. I had the same issue you had. Now it works like new after cleaning this out. The sucktion power is back and it doesn't shut off on me any more. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Our vacuum bag was full and we keep on vacuuming.

Get a professional repairer to examine it. Even with an over-full bag, dirt will not have got in to the motor if the pre-motor filter was correctly positioned and in good condition. However, the motor may have been damaged through lack of air flow and consequent over-heating. Your machine may well need a new motor, and that's a job you won't be able to do for yourself.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response. Good luck!

My upright model 36933503 is making a horrible squeal. I've cleaned out everything that I can find to clean out. It seems to be worse when I turn on the Inteliclean mode. Any suggestions? It still...


A squell usually means a belt slippage, versus a broken belt. You might want to check for rubber fragments around the beater bar. But it could also mean that the rollers on the end of the beater bar are froze up.

Check the tips of the beater bar. I "bumped" mine to hard and broke a tip. Still worked! Just noisy. Called Dyson support and they sent me a new one no charge. Note. Mine had a loud whirring and a vibration.

If it sounds really high pitched or like a airplane i would bet your motor is shot in which case it would exceed cost of your unit.

Loud noise??


I have the exact same problem. I've taken the thing apart and cannot figure out what is causing the noise. It's not the belt and it doesn't seem to be coming from the engine. It sounds like the spinning brush is hitting something, but it's not, that I can see.
