SOURCE: My Miele Hepa 5281 stopped working for no apparent reason. No burning smell etc. I've replaced the fuse on the plug but it's still not working. Any suggestions on what could be wrong a

Could be a break in the mains lead. Usually where it enters the machine and gets stressed. Some motors have a thermal cut out or thermal fuse fitted to them. If the motor overheats it breaks the circuit. Some of them reset when they cool down, some are a one shot device, when it blows it has to be replaced. Could also be faulty brushes on the motor not making proper contact because the are sticking or worn.

Miele 5281 vacuum cleaner permanently on high speed


Most likely the speed control board has failed. The solution for this is to replace the electronic unit unless you know of someone who can diagnose and repair circuit boards. The part is common and easily replaced for around $60. Miele's website can point you in the right direction for a service center, or tell me your zip code and I'll look it up for you.

Blows hepa filter from mounting


I have seen generic filters do this. Be sure to use original Miele filters. The generics are a few dollars cheaper to buy but you end up with an inferior quality filter that could cause other problems by continued use. same is true with bags.

A clogged filter may also do this. Miele vacuums are very tightly sealed, the exhaust air has to come out. If the filter is clogged, the pressure could pop the filter out, HEPA filters are suggested to change out about every 50 hours, for most people this is between 1 - 1.5 years.

We had a Miele come in for service the other day with the same complaint, installed filter was a generic, customer said it was a new filter just installed. We replaced with an original filter and problem ceased.

If you need any help feel free to contact me.

Where do you put the prefilter on a miele canaster vaccuum


Hi If the power head isn't working it may be clogged. Try taking it apart to see if threads and general dirt has got in at the sides. Also without the power head if the Miele still isn't working then its a possibility that the on switch wiring is either loose or check the plug at the end of the power cord.

My Miele Silver Moon "Reset" light is blinking. What do I do?


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Ahh yes, the Silver Moon. One of Miele's best made vacuums ever! So good that out of all the different vacuums that I could of chose for my home, the Miele S558 Silver Moon was the one I chose.

When you're Reset button is flashing, this simply means that it's time to replace the HEPA filter on your vacuum cleaner. Miele included this feature on their upper end models to alert the user when their filter needed to be changed.

The Miele Silver Moon uses Genuine Miele S-Class HEPA Filter for S300i/S600i, and Miele S7 Uprights. Miele Part # 04854915 (replaces 04854911) Which can be purchased from GoVacuum for $52.95 with free shipping.

Once you have installed the new HEPA filter, simply press down on the flashing Reset button to restart the 50 hour internal timer inside. Miele recommends to replace this filter after every 50 hours of vacuuming.

I have a Miele Red Star vacuum, model 314i. I bought a HEPA filter for it but am not sure how to install it.


Hi,

At GoVacuum we put together a General Miele Maintenance video together for Miele Owners. Although the video showcased in the video is not specifically your Red Star machine, the filter installation is going to be the same.
