Where do I tighten bobbin thread


on the outside of the bobbin case where you pull the bobbin thread around and down a small; slot to under a small flat spring
that flat spring is the bobbin thread tension and is adjusted by the screw that holds that plate on
a very small amount of turn of that screw make a large difference to the tension
However if your problem is birdnesting under the material ( total mess) then the problem is not bobbin tension but the needle tension is too loose and not pulling up the bobbin thread properly

Switch Assembly


Springs should be for holding top base to unit. Hook anywhere.

The wheels with the spring broke off and I'm trying to put a new one on but I don't know where the spring goes.


This spring can be very confusing to install. It slides onto the wheel assembly near where the attaching pin is longer ( there are flat protrusions on both sides of the wheel assembly). One end of the spring pushes up on the assembly when it is in place, and the free end must be pulled down and inserted into the small slot in the bottom of the base. Pull down on the shorter end of the spring, holding the longer end, and slide it onto the round area on the wheel assembly. As you put the wheels back on, pull on the longer end and insert it into the slot in the base.

Belt tensioner overheated and doesn't keep belt tight enough


Looking at the owner manual, there is no tensioner assembly.
If the motor is fixed in place and not loose, then you either have the wrong belt, or the brush roller is not properly installed, or the brush roller is worn out where the belt goes around the brush roller.

S3601 Power Cord Mainspring Has NO Tension.


cord reel assembly maybe the spring jumped one time over out over 1 of the confirmationpoints of the reel assembly or the roller on the shaft is worn something is broken on the shaft and or mounting points that it tilts and walks somewhere against, sometime its better to get out the spring of the unit instead of repair because of the costs.

I have a kirby legend 11, the long handle is loose, how do I tighten it please?


If it is not staying up the handle falls down then is caused by the handle spring assembly. Replace the assembly and it should do just fine. There about 7 different components inside the shell, it's usually the spring but after so many years the bushing and shaft could be bad as well. Recommend to change the whole assembly and it does require a specialty tool to tension the spring assembly.

Valve actuator, arm & spring assembly


Could not find a picture of this installed, I have replaced this spring and it is hard to do. You have to put the straight prong of the spring unto the valve arm, you will see a spot for it to be at, then wind the other end of the spring around until it goes into a slot, then get it all together on the agi housing before it comes apart. Hope this makes sense.

Won't Turn On


Mine was a simple fix. Hope yours is too.

You need to take the unit apart to get to the cord reel. If you don't know how to take your unit apart, here are some instructions on how to take apart most of the Miele canister units.

http://www.sannerud.com/house/miele.html

Once it is apart, you will need to take out the cord reel. There is a small rubber hose which needs to be removed on the outermost part of the reel. Then there is one small silver screw that you must remove as well. One these two items have been removed, carefully lift the entire cord reel assembly upwards. When you are doing this, ensure that you are also lifting the black and white wiring along with the reel - just make sure that you're not yanking it and possibly breaking the connectors off. As you lift the entire reel assembly out, you can also remove the white wiring harness which connects to the main switches on the vacuum.

Now, here is the trickiest part - not really that tricky if you are good with your hands.

First, make sure that the cord is retracted fully. Then, start pulling the white plastic cord reel away from the black plastic assembly about 1 inch or so. Between the black assembly and the white reel, you'll notice a copper-like metal spring which is attached to the white reel. Make sure that as you are removing the white reel further, that you are maintaining visibility with the copper-like spring. DO NOT LET THE SPRING OUT OF ITS OWN WHITE REEL (the spring has its own reel which is difficult to wind up again, so be very careful!).

Make sure that the spring is fully retracted at this time. If it is not, wind the reel so that the spring is not wound up anymore around the white reel. Carefully slip the spring out of the white reel and leave the spring as-is ensuring that it does not unwind itself out of its own reel.

Now that you have the white reel off the black assembly, inspect the inside of the inner part of the white reel. You'll see two copper rings with 'wings' on them. These wings transfer power to the vacuum. There may be some grease (black) which you should wipe off with a paper towel. Also wipe the metal rings on the black assembly which touch these 'wings'. (the wings touch the metal rings to send constant power to the motor. The wings are there so that as you wind and unwind the power cord from the vacuum, there is always constant contact with the metal rings on the black assembly.

Now, carefully pull the wings up and out. If you can picture it in your head, what you're doing is ensuring that there is a good contact between the copper wings and the metal rings on the black assembly. Do this for all 4 wings on both the inner and outer copper rings within the white reel. Make sure that the 4 pads are clean and grease/dirt free.

Once you've done this, it's time to put the white reel back on the black assembly. Do everything you did earlier, but in reverse.

Carefully take the copper spring and align it to the white reel - you'll see a specific slot where the spring slides and grabs onto on the white reel. You'll probably have to place the white reel slightly onto the black assembly rod in order to achieve this - again, you must be good with your hands to do this without breaking anything.

Once the copper spring is attached to the white reel, press the rest of the white reel onto the black assembly. HINT: turn the white reel slightly so that you're applying some tension on the spring - this will make sure that the spring doesn't fall out of the white reel.

Reassemble the cord reel assembly (black and white parts) back into the vacuum. Make sure that the black and white power cables are out of the way. Once seated, wrap the black and white cables around the assembly and reseat the white wiring harness. Reapply the black rubber tube to the cord reel assembly and replace the silver screw to hold the entire harness down.

Close the vacuum casing, replace the control panel (power and cord buttons). Close the unit, plug it in, and power it on!

If it worked for you, congrats! If it didn't, sorry, you've got a much bigger problem with your unit.
