I had the same problem with mine and it was the power cord. There was a break in one of the wires, probably from years of winding and unwinding as well as the stretching that occurs when trying to reach distant places without unpluging and pluging into a closer outlet.

How to replace a Miele vacuum cleaner motor brush?


You have to disassemble the unit to get to the brushes. It can be quite a pain sometimes, but if the unit is not working and you don't want to pay to have it fixed (most times repair is more then replacement cost), then give it a try. Once you get to them, moist units have a screw cap or metal tabs on the end of the tube the brushes are inside of. Unscrew the cap or bend tabs open to pull the brushes out to replace. On older models you may not get the parts. If you can find any olde type C or D CARBON batteries carefully open them up, remove the center carbon rod and file shape the rod to make you own brushes. Can be messy, but works great when the parts are no longer avaolable.

My miele, is 6yrs old , no problems in past, new bag and filter, after using for roughly 10 mins, i can smell a strong burning smell, any suggestions how to fix this please , regards zoe


Hi Zoe,
The strong burning smell is almost always an indicator of a motor being burnt out. I have made a Miele repair video but am not sure which model you have so it may not be exactly what you need.

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,
