You have something wrong with your brush roll or you have damaged the fan. Remove the brush roll and belt and turn the vacuum back on, if the noise is gone it is likely something wrong with your brush roll, if the noise persists you probably have a broken fan. You have to remove the motor and fan housing after removing the top cover, unscrew the bolt holding the fan on and install a new fan (you can get one from any Riccar or Simplicity vacuum dealer)

SOURCE: Loud noise

When the motor bearings start to go bad, they will make a loud noise. Some motors if a piece broke off of the fan, then it also will make a loud noise. You may have to replace the motor.

SOURCE: DC17 Animal - loud noise in roller bar

We were able to get in touch with the Dyson support people and they told us this model doesn't have a clutch in the roller bar. The support person helped us walk through looking at the vacuum and it turns out the belt was stripped and they are sending us a new replacement belt. Case Solved!!

I would try changing the belt. Even though the belt may look fine it can be stretched or worn and that can cause loud noises. You can get dyson belts here:

I have a Riccar Supralite Cordless that is clogged. I just replace the bag but whatever the vacuum picks up, it seems to be pushed back out. Is there a way to get to the vacuum tube to unclog it?


Start by checking the suction opening by the brushroll. Then remove the screws and take the nozzle cover off. Remove the cover to be able to inspect the impeller for clogs or debris. Pull the motor if necessary to gain access to the lower end of the suction tube/handle.

The roller brush of my Riccar Brilliance vacuum is suddenly spinning extremely fast; way faster than normal, and is very loud. How do I rectify that?


I will likely save money by having it checked out by your local Riccar service center. A Brilliance can last a long time and work great but like any quality vacuum should be properly serviced every year or two depending on use. A qualified service technician knows what to look for and what your vacuum needs to work properly.

I purchased a riccar 2150L second hand with no information. I have a 10yr old riccar supralite and love it! But the 2150L looks older. I am curious what the age of riccar 2150L vacuum is.


Your m
2150 L is likely 25 to 30 years old. The first Riccar vacuums were made in Japan. Your was likely made in Taiwan. Production of most models was brought to St. James, MO 20 years ago. Filters, bags and some parts are still available from your local Riccar dealer, or from ThatVacGuy.com

Have a bagged Biss ll Powerforce vacuum that has started making a loud rattling noise under the base of the motor compartment. Noise is louder when using the hose. Suggestions? Thank you!


Something broke or got sucked in and is trapped in there. Put it up on a table and take the bottom apart, it's time to clean the roller anyway :)

Riccar supralite makes a loud rattling noise like the roller is banging around


If the noise is not something in the brush roll or the brush roll bearings or shaft is damaged the impeller may have something stuck in it or it may be broken.

Lay the vacuum upside down, remove the bottom plate, remove the brush roll and belt, install new belt around motor shaft and brush roll, pull on brush roll to stretch belt far enough to drop brush roll back into place.

Loud rattling noise.


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Often when an upright is making a rattling noise it can be something caught in the roller and every time the brush turns it knocks against the body and since it turns really fast it can sound quite bad. Take the roller out and clean inside that area and see if that helps. Hope it does. Happy Vacuuming :)
