You might unhook the belt, if it still sounds real loud, then the motor is bad and will have to replaced.

Why does my dirt devil vacuum run so loud?


If a vacuum gets loud all of the sudden it might mean the fan or impeller is broken or cracked which makes it out of balance.

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,

Low Hose Suction, Hose is open.


thanks for the clarification.
since the hose in unclogged, the next place to look is in the body of the vacuum.
there is usually a tight turn in the dirt channel in the base. often you can see the clog if you remove the hose.

the next step is to dissasemble the base and look for the clog.

does the motor sound normal?
is the impeller turning at a normal fast rate?.

Vacuum making loud noise


It could be 1 of 3 things:

1. The belt2_bing.gif that drives the beater bar. (Inexpensive)

2. An impeller that has a broken wing or 2, throwing it off balance. (Expensive)

3. Or, the bearings in the motor are going out. (Expensive)

Hope this helps,

Jim

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
