It's most likely the Belt Slip Protection Dyson uses to prevent the user from having to replace belts. I recently bought a Dyson and love it other than it literally sits there and makes horrible noises 80% of the time. I completely disassembled the vacuum and found that the spring they used for this belt slip protection is WAY too weak. The weak spring seems to let the belt slip protection pop off way too frequently and unnecessarily. I stretched the spring back out and whammy no more horrible clanking. Of course it'll take you a couple of hours, some good tools and some serious ingenuity to get to where the parts are but problem solved. It'll still ratchet when picking up a sock or dog toy or something, but sitting there ratcheting on short dense carpet is unacceptable. Hope this helps!!!

Hi.

Check that brush roller (beater bar) is free to turn with no obstruction.
If it is still noisey after doing this try this site for Dyson repair manuals.

My bissellpro heat is making a loud noise as I clean carpets. What can I do?


You have to find out from where the noise are coming (motor or from the front of the cleaner )
Motor- bearings or something gets in the fans of the motor
Front of the cleaner- check roller and holders at the end and 2 plastic covers true which cleaner sucking from carpet. That plastics sometimes get broken and vibrate

While vacuuming a rug on high (carpet setting) the power suddenly decreased. Now it will only run with low power, not picking up items on carpet


It sounds like you burned the belt. Turn the unit over, remove the cover plate where you see the brushes. On the side of the brush roller is where the belt is located. The belt should be very tight on the roller. Also, you may see little black rubber pieces stuck to the area where the end of the roller is or in the part where the belt runs. Get your owners manual out and read how to change the belt. I'll bet when you ran over the carpet it hung on some of the nap and hung the brush roller up for a second or so. That's all it takes sometimes to fry the belt on some vacumes. Sometimes new vacumes come with a new belt. Look in the bag or box and install it.
