🪥Clogged Brush Roll
If your vacuum’s brush roll is clogged with debris, it will stop rotating and may lead to cracks in the belt.
🔌Parts Not in Place
If the vacuum’s parts are wrongly installed or not aligned in place, then the vacuum makes a loud noise and starts to vibrate.
📏Wrong Height Setting
The incorrect height setting of the vacuum cleaner may cause excessive vibrations.
🌬️Clogged Internal Air Passages
Upright vacuum cleaners have a short length of hose that may get clogged easily, so clean the hose regularly to clear the internal air passages.

🤔Things to Keep in Mind
💡Vacuum Making Loud Noise and Vibrating: FAQs
Why does my vacuum sound like a jet engine?
When the pipe before the vacuum motor gets clogged, the bypass valve opens up, creating a sharp noise like a jet engine.
To fix this issue, inspect and remove the clog through the air path’s end till the motor.
Why is the vacuum loud after changing the belt?
The vacuum is loud after changing the belt because the vacuum belt tears down or gets damaged after a few uses and demands replacement.
If the beater gets stuck anywhere, the motor in the vacuum continues to work, creating friction against the vacuum belt.
Why is my vacuum making a high-pitched noise?
Your vacuum is making a high-pitched noise because of any of these major reasons:
1. Clogged filters, hose, brush roll, and bag.
2. Damage to the motor because of the clogged filters.
Fix these issues:
1. Clear the clogged filters or replace them.
2. Clean the vacuum bag, hose, and brush roll regularly.
3. Fix the motor or take it to the repair shop.
Why is my Hoover making a weird sound?
Your Hoover makes a weird noise because of the suction relief valve, which opens up when there is a blockage or misalignment in any of the vacuum cleaner’s parts.
Here is the step-wise fix:
1. Drop a coin in the hose and wand to detect the clogged region.
2. Using a thin wire or metal hanger, push the clog out.
3. Reassemble the parts to fix the alignment.
Why does my vacuum cleaner smell like it’s burning?
Your vacuum cleaner smells like it’s burning because the belt either tore down or lost its elasticity because of long usage, such that the roller doesn’t rotate and the motor heats the belt.
To solve this issue, replace the vacuum belt with a new one.
