Question and Answers

Q:

Vacuum canister model 72126082, really noisy.

A:

Thank you for your question on the canister vacuum making a lot of noise when running.

The air coming out of the vacuum will be quite warm, because it is keeping the motor cool.

From you description it sounds like the suction motor bearings may be failing.

Some of these vacuums can be pretty loud normally but if it is getting louder and the filter is clean then my only conclusion can be the motor is failing.

Unless you take the case apart you will not be able to check to see if the motor is bad other that sound.

If you decide to change out the motor the part number is: 4681FI2373G for about $42.00 plus shipping and handling.

Motor for vacuum .

Please let me know what you decide to do and we can continue with that information.
