SOURCE: My Miele vacuum carpet head

If the light is on then you must be getting power to the power head. Could be a motor problem, there is a push button switch and a circuit board. Just have to checked to find the problem.

SOURCE: my vacuum has good suction but i can hardly push it across my carpet. any answers????

is your brush roller turning,that would cause it to be hard to push .the brush roller helps it walk across the floor.if your brush roller isn't turning then your belt is broke or the brush itself siezed up.unplug the vacuum and try to turn the brush roller .if it turns real free then your belt is broke.before you replace the belt always clean the motor shaft ,the old rubber from the old belt melts onto the motor shaft .if you don't clean it your new belt won't last very long.please leave feedback

SOURCE: dyson - can't push the vacuum

try to see if the carpet setting is to carpet. i know this machine says that its a life time belt,but i would check this just in case. best way to tell if it's working is to lay the machine on its belly with the brushes pointing up and turn on the machine to see if the brushes are turning. (be careful not to put your face directly in front, just in case something is lodged in the brush and flies out )

SOURCE: We have a Miele Silver Moon vacuum that isn't

Hi dear.There are two type of attachments for this vacuum cleaners to pick up the pets hair,fluff & so on.They call it"Turbo & Power Brush".Turbo brush operates with machines suction & Power one operates with small electric motor which is built in the unit.They work with the same prenciple.There is a belt drives the rotary brush.OK.there are two small yellow screw underneath the unit.Please undo them,take of the cover & clean the rotary brush,check for the belts tension.It should be enough tight to drive the brush.If not ask for spare part from Miele in your country.After cleaning please put it back in order.To test it,attached to the vacuum.Turn the power on for Turbo brush,as long as suction starts,brush should start turning too.For the Power one,there should be power button on the handle to turn it on & off.Press it.It should work.On both of the unit,brush should spin good & strong enough to do the job when it's attached the surface you are vacuuming.Check the brush after each use,cleaned if neccesary. I hope that helps.Thanks.

What is the speed range for moving our Miele Solaris S 514 horizontally over the carpet for optimum weekly dust removal?


When the dust is gone the speed is correct . You should use a back and forth movement so the rug fibers contact the machine efficiently. There is no perfect speed since the amount of dust in a carpet is not uniform. Hi traffic areas will require more time spent removing dirt than an area close to the wall here there is no foot traffic.

Worked well until purchased new thick carpet,now can't push it.cleaned &changed all filters. cleaned brush. tried removing rubber string gasket. no help .


Barry,
Most vacuum cleaners will not roll well on real thick carpets. There are only a couple of vacuums out there that will work on thick carpet. The Oreck Magnesium models and most of the Miele vacuums will work on thick carpet and some manufacturers of carpet will tell you to use one of those two brands. Hope this helps!

Is there a Dyson vacuum that Will work on high pile Mohawk carpet?


Patty,
I am not sure about any of the Dyson vacuums being able to handle that carpet. I work at an Oreck store on the weekends and I know that we have had several customers come in with the same question as yours and we recommend the Oreck Magnesium RS or any of the Miele vacuum cleaners. They have been tried out on Mohawk carpet and have been found to work well. Hope this helps!

Adjust height for plush carpet


The best solution is to change your method of trying to push the vacuum. The more upright the handle is on an Oreck, the harder it will be to push. The lower the angle (the closer the handle is to the carpet) the easier it will be to push. There will be a huge difference. Use a straight stiff arm that is pointed directly down towards the carpet. Use your shoulder and have a near locked elbow. The vacuum will now push easily.

Does not vacuum effectively. It smells like it is burning. I have only had this one year and hardly use it. When I brought it to a local vacuum repair place, he wanted to sell me another one, and, of...


The burning smell may be the motor that's on its way out. Vacuuming with a blocked pipe or sucking up liquids may cause the motor to burn prematurely. The motors arent very expensive, but on the small vacuum cleaners it is sometimes more cost effective to go for a cheap second hand vacuum than to fix it. Depends on if the guy that fixed it is trustworthy, but i can guarantee you the secondhand machine will not have a lifelong guarantee on it. ask for prices on the motor and decide which you can afford.
