Question about Vacuums
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!

you will see a tube coming out of the top of the base.thats where the hose attaches.but before you putthe hose on turn on the vacuum and see if you have suction at the tube coming out of the top of the base.also check and see if the brush roller is turning when vacuum is on.there is a little door you have to lift up when you attach the hose.hold the door open and attach the hose.i hope i was of some help to you.please leave feedback

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.

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
