Vacuum Cleaners/Kirby making loud noise


My Kirby is making a loud noise, but when I put the hose on it sounds normal. I have replaced the belt & this does not help.  Could the roller the belt goes on need replacing.

It's the bearings on the roller have worn out and need replaced, depending on the age of the Kirby.  If so you will need to replace the brush.
You can double check if you have a friend with the same or similar model who will let you attach your head to and run it.
