Why Is My Vacuum Making A Funny Noise?

There could be several different reasons your vacuum is making a funny noise. Depending on the sound, it could be one of the following issues:

  • Whistle Noise –
    • This issue could be as simple as something trapped in the hose, perhaps a small peice of cardboard or a pretzel . If nothing is trapped, it could indicate an air leak, such as a torn seal.
  • Revving Noise –
    • Often the bin is full and simply needs to be emptied.
  • Clicking Noise –
    • This may indicate something caught in your brushbar, such as a small toy, but it may also indicate a clutch or brushbar issue, depending on the model.
  • Popping Noise –
    • If your vacuum is also producing a burning smell, this could be a potential motor failure. Please call us if you have this concern, and we can better help you diagnose the issue.
