blows hepa filter from mounting


I have seen generic filters do this. Be sure to use original Miele filters. The generics are a few dollars cheaper to buy but you end up with an inferior quality filter that could cause other problems by continued use. same is true with bags.

A clogged filter may also do this. Miele vacuums are very tightly sealed, the exhaust air has to come out. If the filter is clogged, the pressure could pop the filter out, HEPA filters are suggested to change out about every 50 hours, for most people this is between 1 - 1.5 years.

We had a Miele come in for service the other day with the same complaint, installed filter was a generic, customer said it was a new filter just installed. We replaced with an original filter and problem ceased.

If you need any help feel free to contact me.

How do I install new filters on a Miele Blue Moon?


There are two filters on the blue moon. The hepa filter and the motor filter. You get to both filters the same way. You open the lid, like you do when you change a bag. The motor filter is right behind the bag inside a plastic cover. There should be two tabs you can pull down to open and access the filter. The hepa filter is located toward the back of the bag chamber but on top. There is one tab in the middle that lift up on.

When turned on the sound is like its screaming. It appears to be coming from the filter compartment. It all seems to work ok.Thanks


I suggest checking the filter. If it's coming from the HEPA filter area, the filter might be out of position or possibly you have the wrong kind of filter. Miele uses 2 different types of HEPA filter so that could be the problem.

I have a Miele Red Star vacuum, model 314i. I bought a HEPA filter for it but am not sure how to install it.


Hi,

At GoVacuum we put together a General Miele Maintenance video together for Miele Owners. Although the video showcased in the video is not specifically your Red Star machine, the filter installation is going to be the same.

Can I fit in both filters?


Yes they can be used together, and they would fit in the same slot if there is room.
