Question about Miele S758 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I have had my Miele S758 Canister vacuum for a couple of years. For a while now it's been stopping during use for no apparent reason. The manual says that this will happen when it overheats and the red overheat light will come on. But it will often stop after just a couple of minutes use and the overheat light does not light up. I don't think it's the filter because it was happening after I installed a new filter. Has anyone elase had this problem?
The problem on mine was as described by others. Miele s758 stops for no apparent reason. The first time it happened I had the hose assembly replaced under warranty. Two years later, same problem. I have found that contacts at BOTH ends of the hose were intermittent. I dismantled both ends, extracted both sets of contacts, immersed both sets of slip-rings in methylated spirits and cleaned all the black gunk away. The three PCB mounted contacts were similarly cleaned, retensioned and lubricated with Electrolube. After re-assembly the problem has disappeared. I imagine a repeat procedure will be required in a couple of years.
CAUTION: The procedure is a bit tricky, so unless you know what you are doing, it would be preferable to have it done by someone who does. It is worth fixing as the replacement assembly is $AUD400.

We' ve had this problem with the contact rings (randomly cutting out), and my neighbour also on two occasions. And on our new one it's happened twice (Fixed under warranty).
Each time I write to Miele suggesting they fit an improved design they ignore it. Verbally they told me they had never heard of it, which must be a lie because I've told them in the past.
Solution (1) dismantle the handle, clean, bend the contacts for good contact and replace. (Tricky reassembling the handle.
Solution (2) Barrage Miele with this problem. Tell them the design is obviously not "fit for purpose" and insist on a free repair....Good Luk.

Low and behold Miele came to the party and replaced the hose and now 18 months later same thing again. It is clearly a design fault that Miele should accept responsibility for considering their reputation and cost of their appliances.

Hi. Fully unwind mains flex. Plug in & switch on now take hold of mains flex approx 1mtr from where it enters machine pull & wiggle it about does it cut out ? If no do the same at plug end ensuring you dont pull the mains plug out. If it cuts out while doing this there is a break internally in the flex. If it cut out at machine end you will need to fit new flex. If it cut out at plug end remove plug from mains & cut flex approx 200mm from the plug & fit new plug. If you still have problem let me know you may need to check Pcb inside the machine.

I have the same model and possibly a similar problem. You don't say whether the control lights for the turbo head (on the top of the suction pipe) are still illuminated when it stops. I have found that the machine will sometimes shut down with the turbo head stopping and the suction level dropping automatically to zero, and, as you say no red overheat light.
