Question about Miele Vacuums
On start up gives a bubbling noise and smells slightly of burning
You cant repair the motor but it is not too hard to replace the motor. I have made a video showing how to replace the motor on a miele S5311 which is a very similar machine. The part number for the Miele S5281 motor is 9271290

Sounds like your belt can either be rubbing against something or its stretched out. Either way you should check into getting the belt changed.

SOURCE: burning smell
Replace the belt. It is probably stretched and is slipping. This will produce the smell your describing. These belts should be changed at least once a year.

Some debris, even sand or dirt, probably got into the motor, causing damage to the armature. If this is the case, you will need to replace the motor. The burning smell from the motor is generally a sure sign of a bad motor.
