Question about Miele Red Star Bagged Canister Vacuum
When we try to start it up it shows the red warning light, and will not start. Is there a problem with the motor? Please could you tell us how to fix this. Thanks
Probably WAY too late to help you now, but may be of assistance to others (I repair appliances): Several times, I've had Miele Vacs which show the red light, but the motor never powers up. If the vac was working perfectly before, 98% it will be a bad solder joint on the Motor pcb. Although it varies per vac: Remove the bag & 4 screws around.
Unclip & remove lid (flex off pivots), then remove centre screw. Lift off control panel. Remove all other screws under the control panel area.
Lift out motor & unscrew motor pcb. Turn over & inspect for any black joints - repair as ness. Reassemble in reverse order - note: difficult to locate top cover back on if lid wasn't removed, as lid power connection can interfere. Hope this helps...

I just fixed exactly this problem on a Miele S718. The overheating warning came on and the motor didn't power up. The problem and the solution were exactly as described by bsc100 above. I also used this site to help me figure out how to dismantle the cleaner: http://www.sannerud.com/house/miele.html
Thanks, this saved me a good deal to repair the vacuum and all the hassle too.
