Question about Kirby Generation 3 Bagged Upright Vacuum
This could be the impeller fan next to the motor shaft under your attachment hose connection.
to determine this, remove the hose from the unit, and turn the fan shaft with your hand looking down inside the unit. You should see blades on the impeller fan, and they should all look squared off and curved. If any of them are broken or worn, it will make the unit louder than normal.
Also, the hose attchment has an increased noise more than using the brush attchment anyway because it increases the suction for the hose more than on the carpet. IE the motor runs faster giving you more suction.
An Impeller fan for the G3 Kirby will run about 18-39$ for the fan. More for labour.
