Question about Vacuums
Greetings from GoVacuum,
There could be a couple of reasons whyyou are not getting power to your power brush. The first and mostpopular reason is the hose of the machine. Sometimes the wires insideof the hose will go bad, causing the power not to get down to the powerbrush, but the rest of the vacuum working well.
You can test this hose easily. You will need to go out and purchase a continuity tester from Home Depot or Radio Shack.When the electrical test is in the continuity position, remove the hosefrom the canister, and put one of the testers on one of the electricalprongs that plugs into the canister itself, and put the other testerinto socket where hose connects into the wand, you should havecontinuity on both terminals. It is important that the switch thatcontrols the power brush is turned to the on position. If one of theterminals does not have continuity, you will need to replace the hoseitself.
If both terminals have continuity, then you shouldthen follow the same procedures on the electrical wand. If the wandtests ok as well, you may have a loose connection in the power brush.
Pleaselet me know if none of these solutions work for you, I can then shoot avideo showing you how to open the power brush to check for looseconnections.
You do have a Miele S548, correct?

A tear in the hose will only affect pick up through the hose when using it to clean furniture, stairs, and such. It will have no effect on the carpet cleaning operation. If the hose cannot be replaced for a while, black electrical tape is one solution to seal the crack.
