Question about Miele S251i Plus Bagged Canister Vacuum

Access to the Plug in Cable of Miele White Star Vacuum Cleaner

The replacement plug on the cable to my Miele White Star Vaccum came off and the cable retracted completly inside the cannister. I can't find or reach the cable end to get it out. How do I open the vacuum to get access to the rewind spool? I have unscrewed the only 5 screws I could find and that does not help. Thanks for your help. Ralph

Our miele red star(s314i) vacuum was running great and quit suddenly. It had not been running for a very long time and just quit. Newish bag, no clogs in hose and doesn't seem overly hot. the over heated...


Ok, so if the cord test didn't fix the problem, then it sounds like either the plug has gone bad, or the switch. The plug is a very common problem to go bad, and can be caused by just simply yanking the plug out of the wall, or putting too much tension on the cord while you're vacuuming. Here's a link showing how to replace a plug on your Miele. You may purchase a plug at a Home Depot for very cheap. If this doesn't fix your problem, then it is either going to be the entire cord reel assembly that's gone bad, or the switch. The plug is the easiest, cheapest next best option, so hopefully this is your problem. Here's a link on how to change the plug out;

Please just use the comment field again if this doesn't fix it, and I'll walk you through step by step the more detailed process of replacing the cord reel.

My vacuum (miele s251i) will not turn on. I just changed the filters and bag. Just wondering if I have put the top filter in the wrong spot. Does it go under the black flip-up bit or on top of it? I do not...


Hello Miller_04,
Regardless of how the filter is put in the vacuum cleaner should turn on. Really is no way to put the filter wrong in these. I have a white star myself.

You can contact Miele Vacuum support and they can further troubleshoot or recommend a vacuum shop in your area to send it to for repairs

Miele Solarus Canister Vacuum stopped working


I am an amateur and novice.
Tracked My Miele problem to a bad connection at the outlet plug.

i think the constant slapping of the plug against the housing during rewind prob disconnected the wires inside the plug? Replaced plug
