Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

Can you tell me the actual model number from the data plate on the machine?
Also, how old is this and has it picked up anything strange, like plaster dust etc?

Thanks

Hi Geoffrey

Thanks

This is not going to be good news, so please dont shoot the messenger !

For the motor to be noisy, the bearing has started to fail. Sometimes this is caused by very fine dust (like plaster dust) bypassing the filters and getting into the motor.

On this machine the motor is a complete unit
Please see here

At that price, I am afriad this is simply not an economically viable repair

Sorry its bad news

Sorry I've been so long responiding Rob had an urgent matter to sort out, I was wondering is it possible to get and fit new bearings to this motor?
Expert:  Rob replied 2 years ago.
Hi Geoffrey

I have a great deal of experience with these Electrolux vacuum motors

Unfortunately, the way they are put together makes it impossible to take them apart and replace the bearings

I am afraid the only way is to replace the motor complete, which in my opinion, makes this an uneconomic repair. Sorry its bad news
