Most likely it is coming from the motor bearings, you will have to replace the motor.

Dyson high pitch noise

Dear Tasha ,
I suggest that you clean out the tubes and see if any paper has been rolled into the bottom. P.S. Do you know how tall 170 cm is in feet.

Hi, my dc07 cleaner has developed a very high pitch screech its not a constant sound but intermittent and last for a second or two and is very unpleasent, its a loud cleaner anyway but this noise is so...

hi.
it sounds like the bearings in the motor are worn out. the only solution is to change the motor, or the entire hoover. motors are available from ebay for about £35 and it will then need to be fitted. unfortunately these bearings do wear out eventually. once they start to make screeching noises like this, there is not much life left in them, and they will get worse rapidly.
if you decide to change the motor yourself, please feel free to ask for more details on how to do it.
hope this helps

Very loud "jet like" noise,please

Hi,

Vacuums are noisy, but shouldn't sound like a jet.....

Trying to find out what is wrong depends on what kind of noise it makes, i.e. high squeal, vibration, whining and where it comes from.

Here is a webpage with troubleshooting advice on noise in vacuum cleaners. Hopefully you should be able to track down the problem. http://www.ehow.com/how_7493926_fix-noise-vacuum-cleaner-motor.html

If you need further help with repairs, please reply back. Thanks,

I cleaned out my dyson ball as it smelt when i hoovered, cleaned filters, washed out canister and took the screws out of the front bar so i could clean near the brushes.. now its making a high pitched...

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

The screws on the base of the cleaner head should not have to be removed to access the brush bar so it is possible that the brush bar has come out of alignment, hence the noise the machnie is making.

Please ensure that the soleplate has been correctly positioned and that the brush bar is aligned correctly before attempting to use the machine.

If this does not resolve the problem, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards
Darran

I have two older Filter Queen (brown vacuum cleaners). Besides unclogging the hose area and making sure it is not filled with dirt, what else would cause the machine to run hot and have a high pitched...

High pitched sound is often caused by air leaks in air ducts. This will also cause hoover loosing sucking power and slightly overheating.

If the hoover is overheating a lot, then noise can also come from the motor. In that case the part must be rplaced.

Try replacing the cone filter, the secondary filter, and the insulation at the top of the machine.
If that does not fix the problem, then the hoover must be taken apart to clean or repair the air duct.

Bearing screeching?

Hello,
Yes, it could be a motor bearing. Another possibility is the fan could be broken. Remove the bottom plate from vacuum. Spin the belt motor pulley slowly and view the fan. You may have a plastic fan that has broken or something is keeping the fan from spinning. Here are links with illustrations to an online guide. (the links will say "belts" but it will show how to get to the fan). Click the one that best matches your vacuum.
Hope this helps.

High pitched noise

It sounds like you may have a bearing problem. The motor bearing eventually gets damaged by the water vapor that is drawn in by the fan. This will cause a high pitch squeel from the motor. It is possible to replace the bearing, but it should be addressed by a professional techician.

High pitch

Sounds like you have a clog. Make sure the filters are clean, replace if it has been more then a year, check the inlet down by the brush roll, your clog maybe there.
