I just bought all new filters pre and post for my cleanview II. So far the machine was sounding great and cleaning great. I then changed the belt and when I put the brush roll back in the machine started vibrating. It also made a loud noise. I took the plate off and reset the brush roll and it still isn't acting normal. I don't know what I did:(...I just hope it's not the housing. Does anyone thnk it could be the plate or brush roll. But it wasn't doing it until I took it out and replaced it!

Bad bearings in a brush roll can make an awful racket and cause some vibration.  You might check the end caps to make certain everything is OK.

I did put some silicone spray to help lubricate but it still vibrates. The endcaps don't seem to come off
I will try to find another brush roll to see if its the main body. I sure hope not.

Sometimes replacing the belt with a new, much tighter one can upset the brushroll until the new belt stretches a little. Most endcaps unscrew with a bit of effort, just, some can be very tight. Silicone spray isnt much good for brushroll bearings, they need to be cleaned with the endcaps removed and then properly greased with some spray grease, to ensure that the grease penetrates inside the ball race. If there is play in the bearings then this will usually create some noise, the worse the wear, the worse the noise. The brushroll end caps need to fit snugly into the chassis recesses, any play here will cause noise as well - some end caps only fit into the chassis in one direction. did you replace the brushroll into the chassis in exacly the same way as it was removed?
Remove the brushroll, and holding both endcaps, spin the brushroll round, if its difficult to turn, or turns anything other than quietly and freely, then the bearings are either worn, or dirt and hair is trapped between the bearings and the endcaps, and the endcaps must be removed to clean out the bearing housings.
