    I'm stuck on this as well. Have you found a solution? I've removed 5 screws so far but I think I have to get the switch plate (by that I mean the place where the on/off and cord retract switches are) off to find another screw.

Miele S251i Plus Bagged Canister VacuumMiele white star canister vacuum - won't turn on,...
Hi,

I have the above canister vac, which after my son tried to vac the stairs, it rolled down the stairs on him, but still worked, after turned off/on. Then after turned off maybe 10-15 mins., stopped working when we tried the switch. My father in law is our fix it guy, but still having a problem with the switch. Is there a wiring guide we could look at?

Thank you!

ALevy

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You can try to call the factory for the Miele S251i schematics / wiring diagram @ the phone number and website listed below or I put a few pieces of information listed below that might help. 
1. The vacuum cleaner switches off automatically 
A temperature limiter switches the vacuum cleaner off automatically if it gets too hot. Some models have a warning light (triangle) which comes on to indicate that it has overheated. Allow the appliance to cool down for approx. 30 mins. and remove any blockages to the air path.
2. The "Change dustbag" indicator stays on even when a new bag has been inserted 
To ensure the dustbag change indicator gives a correct reading, lift the floor nozzle or power head off the floor slightly to prevent the vacuum created in the suction tube from influencing the reading.
3. The exhaust filter indicator is red 
Change the exhaust filter and then press "Reset" to switch off the indicator light.

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.

Hi a curve piece of wire or metal fell out of the handle when taking it apart.Can`t figure out where it goes?


If it is about 2" long , it is the snap ring almost right at the end in the narrowest part which keeps the extension tube in place .
If it is about 7" long , It is the antistatic strip which sandwiches between the 2 halves of the handle underneath.
Hope this helps.

Hi The catch on my miele revolution has come off


Hi Sally If you download the manual this will be easier to explain:
http://www.miele.co.uk/Resources/OperatingInstructions/S%20556%20S%20558%20S%20658.pdf
If you look at page 22 you'll see the optional blower attachment and how to install it - ignore this - however it gives you the view of the two hinges on the actual accessory door. These clip on at either side of the front but there should also be a square partition on the back of the accessory door. Here is where the clip sits into the door and the parts hook onto two spring holders at the bottom. Once that is fitted the door should then go onto the front.

Meile SEB 213 powerbrush cuts out


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 do I take my Miele S251i apart to be able to chenge the powercord?


HOW TO OPEN MIELE 251 VACCUUM: 1-Unplug from wall and disconnect power cord 2-Remove black switch panel at back of top panel: A-Use Phillips screwdriver, remove two silver screws visible between back of hinged top door and front of black switch panel
B-Push back of the panel down while pushing it forward (towards front of machine). There are two plastic notches and clips which are tightly fit together that you need to separate.
Once it releases, push it a bit more towards the front of the machine and lift off panel. It has wires connecting it to the main body so it will not remove completely.
C-Be careful not to lose the springs that simply sit inside of two plastic channels, one under each of the two switches. These are required for your witches to operate properly.
3-Locate screw at bottom of deep rectangular hole now revealed (under former location of black switch panels). Unscrew using Phillips screwdriver. 4-Open hinged top panel. Locate two silver screws, one on each side of main housing. Unscrew using Phillips screwdriver. 5-This will let you lift off the whole top assembly, door and main housing, revealing the plastic chassis and the motor unit within.
You now have access to the motor, wiring connector harnesses, circuit board and the cord reel.
