Hello. Sorry about two posts in one day, but I filmed the video two days ago so I guess It's fine. I've heard that featherlites are notorious for the bearings failing, causing them to explode. This is one of my favorite vacuums in my collection so I'd rather not have that happen. It sounds like something is grinding in the vacuum, and I have no clue what that could be. So..... Happy thoughts I guess. If someone knows whats going on and could help me that would be greatly appreciated.

Wow!!! Along with the other poster-think you may have a nicked or cracked fan.
