Question about Miele s558 Silver Moon Vacuum

1 Answer

Miele Silver Moon 558 displays red triangle and won't start.

I was vacuuming without problems then turned it off briefly. When I tried to turn it on after a few minutes, the red light with a triangle came on and the vacuum no longer works. We called the person who sold it to us and he said "Bring it in. It could be a major repair like a circuit board." We paid about $1000 for this machine and never had such a problem with cheap vacuums!

    I had been using my Miele S548 Aluminum canister for about an hour on and off, when it turned itself off and the red warning light appeared. I thought perhaps it had overheated as we are experiencing a heatwave and the temperature was over 90 degrees. However, it is now the next morning and it still won't turn on. I have changed the bag and the filter all to no avail. Help please - what is wrong with it?!!

Meile vacuums are great when they work but they are expensive when they dont work you have to pay out of the rear end to fix them if it isnt something like a clogged air filter

My Miele S 558 hose keeps powering down while vacuuming. I understand that the newer SES 125-3 hoses are supposed to correct the problem. Before I buy, I'm wondering if this has proven to be true.


Debra, Searched the net. and the problem does seam to be poor/faulty circuit board in the hose and the SES 125-3 replacement hose is to be the fix. You could dissassemble first and clean the contacts first, to see if you can correct and extend the life of old hose. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

MIELE Silver moon turns off after about 10 minutes of using. If I press the "+" button on the handle, it'll turn on again and start up again. Is this an overheat thing or a hose thing?


That sounds like a hose issue, but to make sure it's not an overheat issue I would recommend ensuring that the hose, wand, and dirt tube through the power-head are all clear and free of obstruction. Also try raising the height adjust on your power head: if you have it set too low, air can't move through the carpeting and therefore it will overheat the motor and also not clean as effectively as it could. If all of these things check out, you will have to replace the hose with an SES-125A, but once you've done this you will not have the issue again. Cheers! -R

Will not start, will not reset


I have a Silver Moon S558, when I turn it on the power light comes on and a few secords later the red warning light comes on. What is causing the vacuum not to work? One day I was vacuuming, turned it off and a few minutes later went to turn it on and nothing, but these lights turning on. Is there a fix?

I have a Miele Silver Moon 558 and the red light is staying on saying reset - what do I do? - I do not have a manual. Thank you marilyn@drmelvin.com


well for the manual, you may download it from here. note that you will first have to give some kind of rating before download link activates. otherwise, light indicate when replacement exhaust air filter (key RESET) (after approx. 50 hours of operation, which corresponds more or less, an average use a year).

I just bought a Miele s558 Silver Moon, seems like it's from 2000 or so. If it's in good condition, can I expect this machine to last another ten years? Or would it have been better to buy a lower end...


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Ahh, the Miele Silver Moon model S558i. This is great model that I know a lot about because I actually own this exact model. I have had my Silver Moon now for going on 10 years, with almost no problems. The motors in the Silver Moons are excellent, and should last 20 or 25 years without problems. This particular model did have one major problem however. This is the first model that Miele put the suction controls in the handle of the hose of the vacuum, allowing the user to easily adjust the suction setting with fingertip controls. The problem with these models is that static electricity (usually happens when vacuum carpeting) causes the hose to shut down the power to off. You can be in the middle of vacuuming, and all of a sudden the vacuum will turn off. You can easily turn back on the vacuum with the push of a button, but it's irratating for sure.

Miele did come up with a solution for this problem with a newly redesigned hose, part number SES125-3. Since this new design has come out I haven't had a single issue with my hose. The way you can tell if you have the old or new hose is by the numbers (or lack of ) on the different suction levels. If your hose goes up to 1100 Watts, then this is the older style hose. If you're hose simply has a minimum to high setting with no numbers at all on the hose, then this is the redesigned 125-3 hose.

If you have the older style hose, I would get the dealer that sold you the vacuum to exchange the old hose for the new hose, you definitely don't want to have to buy that new hose ($150+). If you have the new hose, then I would say stick with the Silver Moon over the newer Miele models, in my opinion the Silver Moon is one of the most durable models that Miele has ever made.

The only other thing you need to be careful of is the cord reel. When you are retracting the cord reel, it's best to kind of guide the cord back in, and take it slow rather then just stepping on the cord rewind pedal. The cord reel can sometimes be touchy, especially if you are rough with it. If you're careful with it, you should never have any problem with the vacuum cleaner as long as you change the filters on a regular basis as well as the bags.

I hope this helps, if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at chris (dot) jones (at) govacuum (dot) com.

Thank you,

My Miele Silver Moon "Reset" light is blinking. What do I do?


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Ahh yes, the Silver Moon. One of Miele's best made vacuums ever! So good that out of all the different vacuums that I could of chose for my home, the Miele S558 Silver Moon was the one I chose.

When you're Reset button is flashing, this simply means that it's time to replace the HEPA filter on your vacuum cleaner. Miele included this feature on their upper end models to alert the user when their filter needed to be changed.

The Miele Silver Moon uses Genuine Miele S-Class HEPA Filter for S300i/S600i, and Miele S7 Uprights. Miele Part # 04854915 (replaces 04854911) Which can be purchased from GoVacuum for $52.95 with free shipping.

Once you have installed the new HEPA filter, simply press down on the flashing Reset button to restart the 50 hour internal timer inside. Miele recommends to replace this filter after every 50 hours of vacuuming.
