SOURCE: Miele Vacuum Cleaner

S718 doesn't come up in the Meile parts list, there is a S518, some possibles to check: The switch part #04367102, Indictor lite w/pot. # 05482010, Reel cord 05240302, and motor electronic control # 05408620. Any one of these could be giving you the problem you describe. You will have to dive in and starting with the switch, and eliminate which ever parts seem ok. The reel cord could have bad internal contacts, I have had the pots go bad, but the electronic control more ofter. Which I could pin point it for you.

SOURCE: Miele power nozzle quits after 10 seconds of working.

Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gifbecause it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar.

SOURCE: I need to remove the

First, remove the upholstery cleaning attachment from the back of the vacuum. Next, move the cord to the side. In the recessed slot where the upholstery brush fits, you will see a small hole. Push a small, regular screwdriver in to the hole. At the same time, pull up on the Miele handle to disengage and to remove the handle from the body of the vacuum cleaner.

I did this by placing the vacuum on the floor with the handle down and pressing the screw driver against the floor with the blade of the screwdriver going into the hole. I held the vacuum with my feet and pulled firmly on the handle.

Milie won,t stay upright


If your miele is laying all the way down like mine is and will not stand upright..look for a dark gray corrugated plastic part where the handle bends at the base. This is above the silver holed plastic filter holder. This may be stuck. I just pulled mine out and then I was able to stand it upright again. I wasn't able to put it back in but I think it is there just to cover up the inside workings of the vacuum. So I left it out.

I want to return my Miele Twist, but I don't know how to remove the handle.


"You remove the upholstery nozzle first, use a screwdriver in the remaining hole and push it in the hole until it you hear a click. Then push it a little more and that will release the handle to pull it up." according to their representative.

It's plugged in but won't turn on?


Let's do some trouble shooting:

With it plugged in, do you see any lights on the control panel?
Miele also has a little device, that let's you 'park' the floor want in a neat little slot at the handle end of the machine-- and when it is plugged in there, the machine shuts off.

Finally there are switches on the top of the machine that control the speed of the machine-- what happens when you operate that switch-
The other switch turns it on and off-- Do you feel the switch snap when you push it?

Let us know what you find--

When vacuuming carpet with the electric power brush it will ocassionly , go to zero suction mode and shut off the brush. I have tried to cause it to happen by playing with the joint areas ( handle to tube...


You gave a good start to giving us good information to help you with solving this problem-- But I need a little more information:

It sounds like you have the Electric Motor driven Power nozzle/ Floor attachment-- am I correct? (Not the type that has a little vacuum motor down at the floor attachment-- Not one that depends upon air flowing thru the unit to power the brush, -- am I correct?)

You can control the motor with a switch at the handle-- correct?

So here is the question: - when you say "the electric power brush -- goes to zero suction" -- what tells you that it 'went to zero suction'?-- the little red flag on the vacuum?-- or what?

I am suspecting something might be caught up in the floor wand-- or at the power nozzle itself-- or even in the flexible hose. Do you know how to take the hose off, and place the hand-held end, in the opening in the Miele Vacuum? Can you do that, and clear out the hose first-- and then the hose with the want connected?

If they are all clear-- we may need to open the floor plate on the floor nozzle, and check for something caught in the air passageway--

Tell us more

How to take apart to replace power cord


Hello,

In order to access the cord on the Miele S183 upright, you'll need to first remove the handle from the vacuum cleaner. There is a large screw that holds the handle in place that is located under neath of the lower cord wrap hook. Simply remove this screw, and slide the off the vacuum by pushing the handle towards the back of the machine.

Once you have the handle removed, now ope the bag door as if you were going to replace the vacuum bag. You'll see two screws directly above where the bag fits inside of the machine. These two screws will open up the switch and cord housing and give you access to the electrical cord.

You'll see that there are two screws that secure the cord as it comes into the vacuum from the back. Remove both of these screws so that the cord is no longer secured. I think the easiest way to replace this cord is to simply cut the cord (MAKE SURE THE VACUUM IS UNPLUGGED) so that there is about 4-5 inches of the cord jacket (rubber coating around the cord) remaining. You may now just pull this cord jacket off of the cord, along with the paper insulation so you have two bare wires of the old cord. Now take your new cord and push it into the back of the vacuum so that it comes through the switch housing. Instead of having to re-secure the cord with the two screws, I've found that if you tie a small knot in the cord, this works just as well at preventing the cord from pulling through the back of the vacuum.

Simply strip the wires that are left from the old cord, and simply wire nut the new cord after tying a knot (or re-securing it with the two screws), and reassemble the vacuum cleaner. Test the vacuum only after putting the switch housing cover back into place.

Miele vacuum powerhead


My power head failed due to the handle switch. It comes apart with the Phillips screw under the vacuum kill slider. Check for continuity across the switch contact solder points.

Electrical power down while vacuuming (not a reset)


Thank you JonahBegone!
My 4 years old Silver Moon has been power down off and on for a couple of months, but all of sudden it kept doing it. Then the power won't turn on when I plugged it in ( this turns out to be another problem, see my other posting). I took your advice on taking the hose and handle apart. I unscrewed the 5 screws, but can't pull the handle apart to look inside. I was able to see the 3 metal contact on the hose that you mentioned through a 1/4 inch gap when I forced the handle apart. I cleaned the black stuff off through the little gap by rotating the hose a few times. Then magically, my power down problem also went away. Thank you once again.
