Question about Miele S251i Plus Bagged Canister Vacuum

Opening Miele S28i Vacuum cleaner

I need to open the motor compartment of my Miele S248I vacuum cleaner. It had a bag slip out of place and a lot of dirt got into the motor compartment. I found and removed the two screws inside the lid, but something else is holding the motor cover in place. What am I not finding to take this apart?

Miele s8 vacuum does a lot of noise


Most likely something is caught inside. Remove all hoses and accessories, look for loose parts like coins that cannot pass through.
You may have to get to the fan blades themselves to find the offending item(s).

My Miele upright vacuum will not start. The red light will come on but not the motor. Why is that?


I believe you should have an amber light, if you are seeing a red light located above the bag compartment door, that indicates a fault with either the electronic module or the motor. Unless you have a voltage meter and are familiar with pulling plastic tabbed appliances apart, I suggest you email http://www.mieleusa.com/emailtomiele/emailus.asp?nav=&snav=&tnav=&oT=66 or call direct.

Popped the lid open to change vacuum cleaner bag...now lid won't close. It's stuck at 90 degree angle. Is a button to release it?


Hi bndennis,

Please check the spring on your lid, it may be keeping the door open. Miele vacuum cleaners mainly use a spring concept for keeping lids open - merely pushing it down will lock it at the bottom.

Kind Regards :-)

How do I open my shark plus 1200w vacuum


place the vacuum cleaner in the vacuuming position with the wheels in normal rolling position. Slip your 4 fingers excluding your thumb into the hole located next to the nozzle(where this hose connects to the main body). Yank straight up and the bag compartment will open.

It is pretty tough to fix a retractor. Maybe hook direct and wind up the cord manual like uprights.

Sebo Automatic X1 vacuum cleaner doesn't produce much suction.


If the motor really is working, the problem is most likely to be that there's a blockage somewhere, and on this excellent vacuum cleaner there aren't too many places to look. You've probably already looked in the inspection flap on the underside. If not, that's the first place to look. Next is to separate the bag compartment from the base of the machine (press and hold the button at bottom front of bag compartment and just pull the two sections apart - if this hasn't been done for some time, a gentle levering with something like the plastic handle of a dish brush can help). Then look down the rearmost vacuum tube to check that it's clear, also make sure the little sieve on the other tube is clear. That's all for the base section. Now open the bag compartment, remove the bag and check that tube all the way through the hose.
Another possibility is air leakage, and it does happen on older machines that the plastic tube onto which the attachments fit becomes so worn that it no longer seals properly in the hole in the base (where it lives for normal floor vacuuming).  You could also have split in the flexible hose, of course.

If none of this reveals a problem, the motor probably isn't as healthy as you think it is.
I hope this helps. Any questions, just post again and I'll see what more I can do.  I value your feedback, so please rate this response.

Will it power up without the hose attached? If it does then you have a clogged hose. If not, there is a circuit board by the motor that may be bad.
