SOURCE: miele upright not sucking up?

Sounds like there is something blocking the main airway. I doubt its the filter. You may have to partially disassemble it. Maybe a hairball or something is blocking it I sucked up one of my daughters thin socks one time, had to take it apart to get it out.

My vac has an access panel in the back for this. Thankfully or I would have never been able to get it out. Remove a couple of screws, look for any blockage.

Unplug the machine, and go hunting. If its not in the airways, it is likely close the motor blades. You can't mess anything up, so grab a screwdriver and have at it. Just remember to replace all screws in place when done.

Hope this helps some. Good Luck!

My Miele vacuum's hose has stopped sucking-help!!


Sounds like you might have something caught in it. If you have another vacuum with a hose, use that machine to suck out the clog in your Miele hose.

You may have more dog hair in the main hose. Pull the hose out of the body, turn the lower hose swivel 90 degrees parallel to the floor and twist the hose off. You will see where to remove it at the swivel. Also check the port door on the back of the vacuum near the bottom of the upper section. It can be looks like a parallelogram with 2 plastic screws, twist the screws half a rotation and gently pry the cover off. After clearing out any debris, replace the cover and fasten the screws. A small LED flashlight will be very handy for checking all of the ports and hoses.

When the brush is on it won't **** properly


Look for blockage carefully as the unit does not know which you have attached.

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No suction...so I took off the hose and checked for blockage, (nothing). Now I can't get the hose back on the canister. It just slips ar


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

Hose was not sucking but the rest of the vacuum seemed to be working. the model is a S7210 twist. it felt very hot and the red light was on. it then shut down completely. we can't see any...


No suction at the hose?

There could be a clog IN the hose somewhere. If it is easily removed, take it outside and run a garden hose through it. Your bag might be filled to the top as well...?

The vacuum keeps falling over and won't stand upright. The vacuum won't **** from the bottom, only from the hose in the handle.


No Vacuum will work for more than a few weeks
if you don't own an air compressor & blow them out
after every 2 or 3 uses

My dirt devil vacuum won't suck up anything and its brand new!!


Take the vac bag off and turn on the vac , it should blow air out, if not unclogg the hose where the bag connects, also when you check the roller and belt, unclog the flex hose(located inside base near roller assembly) that sucks up the dirt. As long as the motor works fine the rest is just maint.
