UP22 Light Ball - Intermittent brush head noise
« on: April 11, 2021, 06:18:53 PM »
Hi all

First time poster here.  I've had a Light Ball Multifloor for about 7 years and recently it started intermittently making a much louder sound than usual.  If I turn the brush head off the noise stops, so I'm assuming it's something to do with the motor or the head itself. 

Has anyone had this problem before?

Naturally, it's fairly old now, so I don't really want to spend loadsa money trying to fix it, but I'm open to replacing some parts if it might help.

Thanks very much for your time and help!

If you remove the brushroll and then run the motor, does the noise disappear? If so, it's the brushroll, rather than the motor or housing itself.

Thanks for the advice.

I tried it out and got no sound but the issue has become even more intermittent than it was before, so I canít be sure if removing the roll has made any difference. Next time it starts playing up Iíll try again.
