SOURCE: my Miele Twist Vacuum cleaner

I know this is an old post, but in case it helps anyone newly with this problem... the same thing just happened to my Miele Twist vacuum and I was able to repair it myself.

Problem: vacuum fell gently backwards, went into the fully reclined position and it could not be returned to the upright position. The foot pedal that operates the upright/recline position was also permanently depressed and could not be pushed or pulled fully upright.

Solution: With the vacuum lying flat and right side up, you will see a slightly rounded, dark grey plastic shield exposed in the swivel neck area. It is this shield that is causing the foot pedal and main body to catch and stopping it from returning to its upright position. This shield needs to be tucked all the way up into the swivel neck until it is flush with the edge of the exterior plastic panel piece that has the logo words "swivel neck" written on it (you might have to jiggle it a little bit, but you'll find it is very loosely placed and you should be able to move it around). Holding it in this fully tucked position with one hand, carefully lift the body back up into the upright position with your other arm and the foot pedal will automatically release back into its upright position when the body clicks back into place.

Hope this helps someone!

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No 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.

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
