He's started making a horrible noise. Anyone know much about George's innards?

What sort of noise is it? Does it happen as soon as you switch him on, or only when you enable his squirter?

It sounds higher pitched than normal and it's on the regular vacuuming setting

Ah - I've only had funny noises on the wet setting of mine (I use a Henry for dry vacuuming). Have you checked that there's nothing stuck in the filter or hose?

DH checked all that and thinks the motor has burned out sad

Two Georges dead in 2016!

Miele. You can't beat a Miele vacuum.

sorry to hear about that, looks like it's time to get a new hoover. As others have suggested you can't be a good ole Miele vacuum cleaner, one of the best I've ever brought and it's never let me down.
