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.

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

Generic problem for all Vacuums
I replaced the belt on
Posted by piggytail on May 01, 2008
I replaced the belt on my Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum and the brush roller rubs and makes a very loud noise when turned on. I have gone exactly by the manual instructions and made sure the belt and end caps were on correctly, but the bristles still rub the back and it makes a very loud noise. Without the brush roller in the vacuum, it sounds and runs normal. What could the problem be?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The Royal Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum has just bushings in the ends of the brushroll and not bearings and once the bushings are bad I suggest that you replace the brushroll in the vacuum and put a new belt on the vacuum as well. There is no way to repair the bushing s in order to it to work properly. The suggested belt change is every 4 to 6 months and to store the extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. Suggest looking at a local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Check that the filters are completely clear and not blocked - especially the top filter on top of the bin assembly. If its clogged completely brush it free of dirt and then reassemble. Make sure the inner cone filter and mesh filter is also completely clean. Then check the hose and main dust channel - something is clogged that makes this machine overheat and stop working - and often with this model (Hoover also make it in the UK under the Alyx name) its down to clogged filters or small clogs of dust in the dust channels. 
Don't forget to rate, thanks.

My vacuum is running really loudly, vibrates heavily, and has a slight smell of burning.


sounds like it needs a good cleaning - something jammed up in there more than likely
Take it apart at the bottom and give it a good cleaning..
Best regards

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
