Really LOUD Just recently this vacuum went from the normal everyday vacuum to now sounding louder than my power saws in my workshop. Checked for clogs.. everything is clear.... cleaned it all over and then turned it back on and.... The neighbors thought I was running a saw mill out of my house. HELP!

I can’t really help with the bag issue because I’ve never heard of that before. But my guess is that the bag isn’t breathing properly or is overly full. If the vacuum sounds louder it’s possibly because the fan is off balance and/or the brush could be bad. To test this turn both switches on and listen is the vacuum sounds normal then we know it’s not the bypass motor. If however you put the handle back and the vacuum is loud it’s probably the fan in the direct air motor. You can also take the brush out and do the same test to see if the loud noise is coming from the brush. If you take the brush out and run both motors and they sound fine, you know the problem is in the brush. Hopefully that helps.
what does the really loud noise sound like? Is it a loud, whining sound? if so, the motor may be getting ready to go out. Also check that the belt isn't stuck-though you would smell burning rubber if that were the case.
Does the machine sound louder than normal since then? If its louder than normal since you vacuumed up the glass then you must likely chipped a fan blade or broke it. Either way it needs a new fan if thats what happened.
It usually gets louder as the filters clog up and eventually burns out. Try replacing all the filters and giving the bin and the vortex generator a good blow out with compressed air. Fluff can stay inside and cause the motor to strain hence the increased noise.
It must still be under warranty -used to be 3 but now 5 years -so if it doesn't improve contact Dyson and they will repair it free of charge.
