Yes, most likely the belt has stretch. Flat belts do this after a short time and need to be replaced when problems start with the brush roll not wanting to turn. Also check the brush roll, make sure that the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also.

The red filter light will not reset after replacing the filter on my Miele S5980


Hi There, I actually did a repair on this problem only a couple of weeks ago. The problem could be that the small lever that pushes on the reset button on the circuit board is bent or broken. The little button costs about $10 from memory and certainly a whole lot cheaper than the board itself which is $234. Just to clarify in my case there was nothing wrong with the board, I was able to manually push the reset switch on the board and replace the tiny lever and problem was solved.

Miele seb 213 quit spinning on rug


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first let's focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

Miele Vacuum(Saturn300). Vacuum powerhead(SEB234/236) does not work, no light comes on and no power. is it the hose(SES119) or the powerhead? tried plugging and unplugging.


You need to check your voltage coming out of your hose and wand, be sure that the handle switch is in the on position. Voltage should be +/-120V. If you have voltage there then you have a power head issue. The replacement would be the SEB 228, you could also use the SEB 236. The SEB 236 is a deluxe version of the SEB 228.

If you need any help feel free to contact me.

Miele vacuum s5980 no power


your main circuit board is also your speed control the motor should not have a circuit board i don't believe. open your machine up all the way to the motor and cord reel. check voltage at cord reel should be 120 +/- 10. if voltage is correct then replace speed control board.

Miele SEB-213 powerbrush stopped working


Pull the head cover off to check the belt, if the belt is ok then it might be the power connection between the handle and the power head shaft. If the red light is on the power head, then its not the connection
because its getting power. Now some heads have a reset button on them,you could check this also.
With the cover off the power head, remove the belt, now turn it on, and be careful, but try to make the motor shaft spin,with one finger, because if it does start to spin you do not want to hurt your finger.

If the motor starts to spin,put the belt back on, if it does not spin again, the motor is too weak.
If it does not spin at all, the motor is bad.Hope this helps you,and you get it working.

Meile SEB 213 powerbrush cuts out


Your problem is either in the wand, assuming you have the telescopic dark grey electric wand. The only other thing it could be is the hose, once again, assuming you have the electric hose with either the rocker switch that shuts down the power brush, or the deluxe hose, with the electronic suction control, as well as the brush shut off. Miele wands and hoses are notorious for causing power brushes to cut off. If your Miele is under two years old, I would suggest taking it to a autherized Miele service center, and see what, if any, warranty you have left, and have it checked out. Let me know how you make out.

How to clean the power brush on the miele vacuum. Is the brush removable? If so how do you remove it?


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Miele canisters have 2 different types of power brushes. The first, and most popular is the Miele SEB 217, and 213 Power heads. To remove the brush, follow these instructions.

On the bottom of the power head there are 2 yellow (older models it is black) plastic screws. You can remove these screws with a phillips head, or flat head screw driver. Simply unscrew these two screws. You do NOT have to remove these screws, just unscrew them to where they are loose enough to remove the bottom plate.

Once you have unscrewed the plastic screws, simply pull the bottom plate up and off of the power brush. You will notice the belt on the left hand side of the brush. Simply pull the brush up, and un hook the belt from the brush;
6ad212c.jpg

Now that you have unhooked the brush from the belt, you may thoroughly clean the brush, and un wrap any hair or thread that is wrapped around the brush. You will notice on the roller brush itself there are two indentions on both sides of the brush that run the entire length of the brush. You can take a knife or scissors and run them down the brush on both indentions, which will help you remove the stubborn debris wrapped around them.

Also you'll notice on both sides of the brush that there is a yellow bearing cap on both sides of the brush. You may pull these bearing caps off, and remove any debris that is around these caps. You may also lubricate these bearings with grease or WD-40, to ensure the brushes spin fluently.

After you have cleaned the brushes and bearings, insert the brush roller back through the belt, and into the power brush. You'll notice that the bearing cap will have two sides. One side of the bearing cap has 1 groove in it, the other side has 2 grooves.

When you reinsert the brush back into the power brush, you may lower the roller brushes if the machine has been used a lot. If the roller brush is older, you will want to re insert the brush with the side that has 2 grooves facing upwards, and the side with 1 groove in it, facing down. In the first picture above, you will see that the side with 1 groove is facing upwards and is visible to the camera. The side with 2 grooves is facing down. This is because this brush is new. If your brush is older, you will want to reverse that, and have the side with 2 grooves facing upwards. When the brush is back into the power head, simply put the bottom plate back on, (IMPORTANT! Make sure that in the front of the machine the bottom plate is completely hooked onto the front of the power brush, there should NOT be any space in the front) Once you have screwed the plastic screws back into the power brush, in the front of the power head, push the bottom plate upwards to make sure there it is fastened tightly in the front.

I hope this helps you. If you have the larger, less popular SEB236 power brush, just send me an email, I'd be happy to walk you through cleaning the brush on this one also. If you have any questions about this repair, please feel free to email with any questions, I really enjoy sharing my knowledge, and passion fixing vacuum cleaners.

Miele White Star SEB 204, powerhead stopped spinning. brushes are clear of debris, belt (#3854940) is not broken. Could belt be stretched so that brush head does not spin?


Yes, most likely the belt has stretch. Flat belts do this after a short time and need to be replaced when problems start with the brush roll not wanting to turn. Also check the brush roll, make sure that the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also.

belt could be melted to the motor that spins the brush, try free spinning the brush with your hand to see if the brush spins freely, if it does not the brush bearings could be frozen, or just need a simple new belt...hope this helps
