Have you tried rotating the ball with the filter removed? If the filter doesnt fit properly it catches on the filter cover.

Failing that,  the big bearing on the ball may need a drop of grease,  or the smaller plastic bearing has worn away into nothing...

I had it with one ive got in for repair,  had to buy some new filters as both the ones i had popped out and jammed thr ball.  Test it by actually using the machine though,  mine would be ok before i started vacuuming the rug,  then pop,  catchcatch catch jam...
