If the sound is more like a growl or a whine when it winds down after being shut off, that's usually the bearings. The sad thing, in today's market, is that there are frequently problems getting parts for the foreign brand vac's. If I'm not mistaken the Miele brand is made in Germany. If it is, indeed, the bearings of the motor, the most economical way to fix it is to just drop in a new motor. First, the motors are frequently, extremely difficult to remove and replace, if there are replacement bearings available they are likely to be aftermarket bearings. It would be expensive to do even just for bearings, so if you're going to that much expense you should probably consider either a new motor or a new vac.

Has power but won't turn on


sounds like either a bad switch,bad wire or a bad motor -- use a volt meter to trace power out to find what is at fault.
if it turns out to be a bad motor or switch -- you can get the replacement parts at your local vacuum repair shop.

No suction and is not clogged


The motor is bad, when these type of electrical motors go bad the power of the vaccum dies but the motor can still sound like it is running. One way to tell the motor is shot, is the motor while running will be a might louder than it was originally.

It sounds like you have a bad motor. Motors can be replaced easily. You will need to know the model number. There are several companies online that sell replacement motors.

Rainbow E series sounds "whiny" and loud while running


The whinning sound may be the bearings are bad. This will have to be taken care of or it will wear your motor brushes down very quickly. It is not generally caused by the filter, but by not be cleaned properly and may have been stored on its water basin.

Sparks and smoke


you either have something worn out or the motor inside is going bad. Sounds like the motor in the power head is going bad. Disconnect the the wand from the power head and flip over the head take the plate off. then take the plastic cover off uou should get to the motor then. look at all the parts. I would think you need to replace the brush roll, belt and motor. But this is just a guess

You might unhook the belt, if it still sounds real loud, then the motor is bad and will have to replaced.
