Question about Miele SEB 213-2 Vacuum

1 Answer

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.

Meile vacuum cleaner warning light is on and the vacuum won't work.


I don't know if this will help, but I'll try.
It sounds like your machine is clogged with dirt.
You may need to take the whole thing apart and clean it out.
You may find a clog way up inside the machine preventing it's working.
God bless your efforts.

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.

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.

Miele seb 213 quit spinning on rug


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first let's focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

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.

Miele SEB-213 powerbrush stopped working


Pull the head cover off to check the belt, if the belt is ok then it might be the power connection between the handle and the power head shaft. If the red light is on the power head, then its not the connection
because its getting power. Now some heads have a reset button on them,you could check this also.
With the cover off the power head, remove the belt, now turn it on, and be careful, but try to make the motor shaft spin,with one finger, because if it does start to spin you do not want to hurt your finger.

If the motor starts to spin,put the belt back on, if it does not spin again, the motor is too weak.
If it does not spin at all, the motor is bad.Hope this helps you,and you get it working.

Miele White Star SEB 204, powerhead stopped spinning. brushes are clear of debris, belt (#3854940) is not broken. Could belt be stretched so that brush head does not spin?


Yes, most likely the belt has stretch. Flat belts do this after a short time and need to be replaced when problems start with the brush roll not wanting to turn. Also check the brush roll, make sure that the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also.

Some of these types of hoses, if there is a male plug on the end that goes into the wall outlet, could be that one side of it is fused and will have to be replaced. When something happens like a short or a bad brush roll stall, this fuse will open up. If you supplied the model number I may habe been able to look it up and see. But if the hose end cuff comes off, then you can check it with an ohm meter to see if one side is open or not.
