Meile vacuum s3121

What does it mean when the suction in hose is decreasing? When I take the hose off the main body of the vacuum the suction is fine, but when I clip the hose back on the suction weakens. If it has to do with something in the hose, how do I get whatever it is out without damaging the hose?

Are you sure it's an S3131? Miele does not list that model on their website. In any case, if the suction from the main body is fine then their must be a blockage in the hose or the head. Take the hose off of the body and disassemble everything from the head to the end of the hose. You will probably end up four pieces: head, pipe, handle, hose. Cleaning the handle and pipe are easy, just push something through. Cleaning the hose is fairly easy as well, just push a broom handle through gently *from head end towards body end*. If something is wedged in there, try to crush it by squeezing the hose or try to work it out by kneading the hose at the blockage while someone else pushes gently on the broom handle. Cleaning the head can be tricky but normally if you put it in the flat position (as though you were trying to vacuum under a couch) and stick a bent coathanger through from the floor face, past the beater bar, and back up to the neck that will knock out any big blockages. Good luck!

SOURCE: dyson 18 losing suction

Check the HEPA filter if it has one. This bit of foam gets clogged over time and significantly reduces the suction especially if you've been vacuuming a lot of very dusty areas i.e. dust from building work etc. Just wash the filter with lots of water and leave to dry before reinserting.

SOURCE: vacuum has lost suction and is making a hissing noise

I had the same problem with my Kompressor.Initially I had cleaned all three removable filters.There is two in the canister that can be washed with dish soap. The HEPA filter is located in a compartment on the lower front side of the vacuum.This HEPA filter should not be washed.I found that tapping it inside a trash can dislodged alot of dust from it. After cleaning all the filters and canister I was having the same hissing noise coming from a small hole near the bottom of the vacuum. Next I removed a hose fitting on the lower back of the vacuum and that is where I found a very large amount of debris clogging up the hose. I used a metal coat

My rainboe has no suction


<p>The hose could be clogged. <a href="http://www.rainvac.com/rainbow-vacuum-schematics"></a>Check the suction on the main unit without any hoses connected. If that seems good, then connect a hose and check suction again at the end of hose. If suction is still good and you are having issues when using the power nozzle, then open up the bottom of the power nozzle to check for clog.</p>

I have a Eurkeka Boss vacuum and having problems with suction with the hose attachment. Have checked the normal things. ???? Any suggestions?


Since you've checked all the normal things, I presume you mean making sure the hose is unblocked. Now, have you checked the hose for the suction vent/adjustor? There is usually a vent with a movable cover that moves away from the vent and back over the vent. If the vent is open, the suction decreases. If the vent is covered, the suction improves. Many times I accidentally move the cover so that the vent is open and then I wonder what is wrong with the vacuum!
Hope this helps. If it does, please rate my suggestion! Thanks.

Is there a switch to turn-off the tools so that


On the Hoover U6311-900 there is no switch that turns off the suction to the tool hose. That hose is attached to the head of the vacuum on the side via a spring loaded "door". Just twist the hose to remove it, the door will close and you will have full suction again.

Vacuum shrinks, power is still on but no suction


perhaps there is something stuck in the vacuum. Look where the hose fits in. There is obvioulsy no blockage in the hose because you have suction. Do the power brushes spin on the vacuum?? Take the bag off, and inspect the area the bag fits in for blockage.

Decreased suction


you might have a clog, to try and unclog the lines, you need to unplug the unit, and remove the bag compartment. Then take a shop vac using the hose attachment hold it into the attachment door where there is low suction and try to draw the clog out the way it went in.

Decreased hose suction with Windtunnel


There are very few things left to check. First verify that the filter is installed properly, in the dirt cup. second check to make sure the dirt cup lid is on and secure. Did you use water on the round dirt cup filter? if you have you will need to replace it. To verify this remove the round filter and re-install the dirt cup on the vac. do not vacuum the carpet, just turn it on to check for proper suction. and then turn it off.

Your problem has nothing to do with it in the upright position. once turned on you will always have suction, either to the floor or when hose is removed from foot for accessories.

Miele Revolution 600


This is a problem with the hose, and unfortunately it will require replacement of the entire assembly.

The SES-125 hoses produced in the general vicinity of late 2002 had a tendency to start building up static and kicking the motor off after a few years. The problem was rectified, and the more current hoses do not have this problem.

Head to your friendly neighborhood Miele dealer and get a new hose, and this problem will not occur again.

I have a yellowMiele Vacuum,model=Electronic Air Clean Plus S3121. On the main body the part that the pipe/nozzle clicks into has a piece that has snapped off. I can see this by lifting the lid and the black plastic piece that is screwed to the inside of the lid has a piece chipped of it which means that when the nozzle is clicked into place it is completely loose. There is a black piece that clicks into the inside of the hoover into this broken part which is still ok so at the moment by lining up the nozzle with this loose piece I can click it into place. How can I get this piece that I need?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You can order the order or the schematics from the factory website listed below and I will provide you with another contact as well for the Miele S3121 in order for you to order or replace the part that is broken or you can refer to your local vacuum cleaner dealer in the yellow pages.
