Question about Miele Vacuums
Hi Emily: If you have the model number for your machine you may be able to find your manual on the Miele website. Check here for older models Here for newer models.
In trying to isolate the clog it would be best to disassemble the wand and hose to more easily isolate the problem. If the problem is a ball it is quite likely lodged at the first elbow
Generally, to detach the suction hose from the canister press the release buttons at the sides of the elbow and lift the hose from the socket.
To release the handpiece from the wand, press the locking button and pull the handpiece away from the wand. Similarly if your unit has a floorbrush this can be detached by pressing the locking button and pulling the wand out of the floor brush.
You may need to insert a wire from the canister end to push out the clog or ball opposite to the direction it was sucked in.
If these directions are not helpful and you cannot locate the manual for your model, please reply with your model number as I may be able to locate it from other sources.
Thank you for using FixYa!
