Miele S5210 vacuum / burning smell & electrical shorting

Our Miele is 15 months old and has modest domestic use.  When it's turned on there is immediately a burning smell and I believe that there is some electrical shorting as the household lights flicker.  The main unit did turn over for 15-30 seconds or so when I was vacuuming in the car and this may have contributed to or caused the problem.  We won't be self-repairing so some idea of costs to repair would be great.  Any ideas very gratefully accepted. Many thanks.

My miele, is 6yrs old , no problems in past, new bag and filter, after using for roughly 10 mins, i can smell a strong burning smell, any suggestions how to fix this please , regards zoe


Hi Zoe,
The strong burning smell is almost always an indicator of a motor being burnt out. I have made a Miele repair video but am not sure which model you have so it may not be exactly what you need.

Burning rubber smell when vacuum running


First of all, thank you very much for choosing FIXYA today for your online technical support needs.

Most times that burning rubber smell is the result of a worn out rubber drive belt. This belt is used to drive the rotating beater brush in the head of your vacuum. When the belt gets old and loose, the drive pulley starts to spin in place and heats up the belt instead of turning it properly.

To fix this issue, just unplug your vacuum, then disassemble the bottom head in order to access the beater brush drive belt. Remove the old belt, then replace with a new one, and then reassemble it. The old belt will probably have a part number on it so you know which type to buy, or you can just look up your vacuum model number online to find the correct replacement part for it.


Since you did not provide your vacuum's exact model number, here is a link to a short video which demonstrates the basic belt replacement procedure for a generic vacuum cleaner:

To view the video instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and blue highlighted text just above.


This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated.



I truly hope that was helpful to you.


Good luck and take care.


Joe.

I need to disassemble the cleaner to access the motor


Took me forever to find it but it is in the very bottom. You have to open the top where the attachments are stored. In the back in front of the power on\off button down at the very bottom is a tiny screw.

My s5210/s5211 vacuum 14 months old makes a noise like a turbine


You've got a 7 year motor warranty. Take it back to your dealer and have the motor replaced, unless you've been running it without filters or you've been using generic bags, which would have voided your motor warranty.
This is actually very rare: I've only ever seen one miele motor break that wasn't water related or related to negligence.
