Question about Dyson Vacuums
SOURCE: noisy on rugs!
Are the rugs long haired or short haired? Most likely the suction is just causing the noise when it picks up the rug and the buzz saw could be the beater bar hitting the rug then. I actually own a DC14 and it does the same thing and the rugs like to be dragged along. Nothing really to fix this, just the way it is. You could try it with the beater bar raised and see how well it works then but this sounds normal.
Have a good day

SOURCE: I ran my vacuum against
There is a switch next to the main power switch on the handle which turns the brushbar on and off. When the beater bar becomes obstructed as in your case, there is a safety feature which cuts power to the beater bar. All that needs to be done in most cases is to turn this switch off and back on again and the beater bar should resume operation.
The beater bar on / off / reset switch is the yellow switch to the left of the main power button if you are standing in front of the hoover:
Reset the beater bar and you should be back up and running.
If you have already done this or it doesn't solve your problem, please post back for further assistance.
PLEASE NOTE: This reset method is for the Dyson DC17 ANIMAL as stated above. If you have a different version of the DC17, please post back for alternative instructions and state which version of DC17 you have.
Hope this helps.
