Welllll.... some time back, my parents did exactly what you did, for exactly
the same reasons (noisy bearings, poor suction). I told them not to throw the
old one away, that I'd take it. Twenty dollars and four hours later, I had
replaced the bad bearings and worn brushes, and it ran like a champ.
That was fourteen years ago. I'm still using that vacuum.
Soooooo..... if you don't want to fix it, maybe you have a buddy who will.

Ahhh, weedhopper, I suggest throwing a rope around the vacuum, tying off to
a pickup truck and going for rides on the vacuum (vacuum cleaner surfing).
Get at least a six-pack deep first and call us from the hospital <g>.
Couldn't have said it better myself. Gotta *try* to see what's wrong, even
if it just turns out to be an autopsy.
My son is the same way. Does me proud. He came trotting in one day and
proudly announced that the drive gear in one of his Thomas the Tank Engine
trains had come off the shaft (or similar), and that he had taken it apart
and fixed it. My heart grew three sizes that day. :)
