Why is my motor making a high pitched noise

My Dyson DC14 is jacking a high pitched sound and not sucking at at all. It sounds like the engine us running but not angaging somehow...

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

If your Dyson vacuum is emitting an unusual smell, see the Dyson Ball Animal Emits Unusual Smell or Noise problem page for possible causes and solutions.

Sounds like you have a clog. Try taking the bottom apart and cleaning the rollers and brushes out. Also, check the hose for an obstruction.

It seems the dyson upright animal filterless motors only last 2 years. If I'm going spend more than $500 or $600 for a vacuum like this, then I expect it to last about 10 years. No matter how much I empty and wipe the motor and canister clean each and everytime I vacuum, considering we actually have not pets at home (I clean on a weekly basis), then I think it's time to move on. I am so disappointed with Dyson. I will look elsewhere for a vacuum that matches its cost in terms of effectivity and durability.
