Question about Miele Red Star Bagged Canister Vacuum
It was working, then it just stopped. it won't switch on again. i even replaced the bag thinking it was over full. but the vacuum will not switch on. is there something i'm doing wrong? please help.
Either the switch or the motor has burned out. try resistance test on each. look for positive resistance change on switch and about 2 ohms on motor. also look for a disconnected wire

Yep, per the guest solution dated jun 25th, the slip ring was indeed the culprit - thanks!! but to be clear, the spring retractor tape was a feisty son of a buck! be careful to stage this work in an area where grease is gonna get over things. adjusting the contacts was merely a matter of bending them slightly. resetting the tape was a piece of cake once the remainder of the tape was removed from the cord reel.

Solution #2 was close in my case. There are two slip rings at the hub of the cord reel. One of them was not making contact despite the fact that there are two separate contacts for each side of the mains power for redundancy (good design!) It wasn't too dificult to pull out the cord reel, pull the reel off the axle while disconnecting the retractor tape, and adjust the contacts.

I don't understand what "resistance testing" means, I also don't know how to look for the positive resistance etc, but thanks for answering.
