Question about Miele SEB 213-2 Vacuum

Meile SEB 213 powerbrush cuts out

It acts as if there is a short or broken wire. It will be working fine then just stop. I took the whole thing apart but could find no evidence of a broken wire. It will not do it if I jiggle the wire anywhere along its length.

    I don't have the dark gray wand, mine is chrome. I have the electric hose with the rocker switch. This vacuum is probably five years old, so no warranty. My wife also thinks that when the power brush is running it doesn't seem to have as much suction. I am a bit skeptical of this. So I guess I need a new hose then?

    I have Solaris with the same problem. I was told that fixing would be $200-300 so I went and bought a new vacuum. I still have my Solaris and hope to be able to fix it one day. If somebody has a solution, please let me know!

Your problem is either in the wand, assuming you have the telescopic dark grey electric wand. The only other thing it could be is the hose, once again, assuming you have the electric hose with either the rocker switch that shuts down the power brush, or the deluxe hose, with the electronic suction control, as well as the brush shut off. Miele wands and hoses are notorious for causing power brushes to cut off. If your Miele is under two years old, I would suggest taking it to a autherized Miele service center, and see what, if any, warranty you have left, and have it checked out. Let me know how you make out.

How to replace cord on phantom modelafv9038 ?


Try YouTube for videos or best plan is to leave it in with someone who knows vacuums. Don't risk taking it apart yourself unless you are confident around dismantled things. If it is a press-to-wind-up reel rather than a wrap-around-two-lugs cord, the most likely problem is the wires have become fatigued and have broken inside the insulation. A vacuum repair shop only needs to trim beyond the broken wires and then re-connect everything. They should not be advising you to replace the whole cable and certainly not to replace the whole reel assembly. hope this helps.

Tip

I found this very useful. I have a brand new F5914-900 and no other solution...


When the brushes stop spinning on a Hoover SteamVac, it can be caused by several things. In order to diagnosis why your brushes aren't spinning, please view the diagnosis solution I have done on Fixya:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t4286338-hooverspin_scrub_brushes_always_stop


If you have diagnosed your machine, and found that the internal receptacle is not spinning, then you'll now need to replace your turbine. This tip will explain in detail how you'll need to complete this repair.

Here's what you'll need to complete this repair:
- Hoover SteamVac Replacement Turbine Brush Gear (several different parts for different models)
- Phillips Head Screwdriver
- Flat Head Screwdriver

Step 1. Remove both the clean solution, and the dirty solution tanks from the machine, and press the handle release pedal so that the handle is laying down flat:

Step 2. With a flat head screwdriver, pry off the rotating brush speed indicator knob:
407b985.jpg
Step 3. Unscrew the silver screw that's at the very top of the see-thru suction port where the dirty solution tank rests.

79a39bc.jpg
Step 4. Turn the SteamVac upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. There are four clips that hold these brushes in place. You'll need to remove the brushes from the machine by squeezing the four tabs while pulling upwards at the same time. The picture actually only shows the two tabs on the right hand side being squeezed, but the tabs on the left hand side are in the exact same location:

23e0faa.jpg
Step 5. Once you've removed the brush block from the machine, there are 4 screws on the bottom that need to be removed. Keep the two silver screws on the very corner in place, you won't need to remove these. Remove the four screws that I've highlighted in red:

91d0198.jpg
Step 6. Turn the machine back over right side up, so that the brushes are on the bottom. There are two clips that hold the top housing in place. Insert your flat head screwdriver in between the top and lower housing in the rear of the machine close to the rear wheels, and pry upwards to un-clip these clips on both the left and right sides, then remove the top motor housing from the machine.

Step 7. You'll now have complete access to the turbine. Remove the two silver screws in the front of the unit that hold the turbine in place, as well as remove the front hose from the turbine:

cabbd35.jpg
Step 8. Once you have removed the two screws you'll be able to lift the turbine up. There's a second hose in the rear of the turbine that you'll also need to remove before you can remove the turbine completely. After you've removed the hose, take the turbine out of the machine. You'll notice to the immediate left of the turbine other hoses that connect to a black circular part. This is actually the pump that sprays the water on the floor. If you ever have the problem where the clean water solution will not spray, it's a good possibility that this part needs to be replaced.

Simply install the new turbine, reattached the hoses and two front screws. When you're putting the top motor housing back on the unit, make sure that the brush speed selector knob that's on the right side of the turbine fits through the **** in the top motor housing. Also before you tighten the two screws that that hold the top housing in in front of the brushes, there's two clips. You'll need to snap the top motor housing behind these two clips. Simply push front of the motor housing until you hear it snap into place.

Miele 228 power brush stopped working


Does the motor on the Head Run but the Brush does not turn... change the Belt, the brush head is operated by a rubber belt this is so it has no direct drive so if you suck up something then you ruin a belt and not the motor. Besides you should change the belt as per MFG directions. I change ours at Least 2 times a year and if you do.. say Pull in a Rug corner and it smells like Burnt Rubber? ... you just decreased your life of the Belt.... you'd be surprised on how well a New Belt helps your Vac pick up things. Change the bag often too, do not wait till it can pickup no more. The bag is Not meant to be FULL to be changed, besides it keeps Mites in the trash where they belong and not a breading ground in your closet... If you have a bag-less clean and rinse (All Filters Every Vac has a Filter even the Bag-Less ones) and let dry after a day of vacuuming follow MFG directions, Hope this helps.

Dyson power head stops but can be started immediatly


Just had the same problem. Took apart whole power head to look for broken wire and found none. If you see part way up the hose there is a coller with 4 torx screws holding together. This collar is a swivel that allows the hose to spin without twisting or kinking. Take the 4 screws out and open up. You will see 3 contacts that look like fingers that rub on 3 mating steel rings. Wipe the tips of the fingers and wipe clean the rings. Gently bend the fingers out wards so that they apply more pressure to the steel rings. Reassemble and try. Should take no more than 15 mins. Worked for me good luck!

My Bissell powersteam powerbrush carpet cleaner wont spray water from the floor jets or the hose. Checked the belt, its doesn't look damaged, also took it apart and cleaned the floor jets, still nothing.


Check any related mechanical and/or electrical parts, including switched, levers, buttons, valves and all water-ways. Make sure all electrical connections are clean, functioning with a multi-meter, and all pieces are NOT broken or malfunctioning and clean. replace any broken or malfunctioning parts that you can't clean or repair.

I have taken henrys lid off to look at the motor now he has stopped working


It's possible when you took the lid off one of the wires has come off a switch or the field. It could also mean the motor has gone. Recommend you get it checked out.

Brush roller wont turn, motor is good and the curcuit board appears fine. No evidence of anything blown or broken wires either.


Judging from this parts diagram:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Dyson-Inc-Parts/Vacuum-Parts/Model-DC15BALL/3207/0645000/50026393/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

The brus motor has what appears to be a transmission on it.
If you have it apart apply power and make sure the shaft that fits brush is turning.
If the motor spins but the shaft does not you need to replace the motor asm
If the shaft spins the problem is with the brush or the way the shaft attaches to the brush

Meile s251i won't turn on


Hi If the power head isn't working it may be clogged. Try taking it apart to see if threads and general dirt has got in at the sides. Also without the power head if the Miele still isn't working then its a possibility that the on switch wiring is either loose or check the plug at the end of the power cord.
