Re: .. it just won't work.....

The Cloth Bag Filter has a beanbag weight in the center. It is held in place by a metal band around the outside of the filter -

there should be a loop next to the edge that you can grab and pull to the center - then the filter should come out of the upper tank. the band is flexable. powder is a big problem with any Vacuum -- DON'T use carpet powders they clogg any vacuum. sheep up what you can - when you vacuum -clean the filter and tank soon after- you can burn out the motor because of lack of air.

I have the Miele cat & dog S5000 vacuum. I have had it about 1 year and lately the suction doesn't seem as strong and the full bag indicater is always full. I have followed instructions in manual but...


I would say that you have a slight clog in the hose or in the power nozzle somewhere. The full bag indicator is just a guage that will indicate full when it feels like it's lost suction. Example: If you were to take the hose and cover it with your hand, you'll notice that bag full indicator will show full.

To check and see where the clog in the vacuum is, remove the wands and floor attachment so you just have the hose on the vacuum cleaner. With just the hose attached, turn the vacuum cleaner on. Does it still show a full bag? If yes, then remove the hose completely from the vacuum cleaner so it's just the canister part by itself and turn on the vacuum again. If the bag full indicator is now showing an empty bag, this means that you have a clog in your hose.

If the bag full indicator displayed an empty bag when you had the hose on the vacuum, but shows a full bag when you have the wands and floor tool attached, this means that you have a clog in the vacuum either in the wands, or the floor attachment.

For removing clogs from the hose, the quickest way is to just purchase a plumbers snake at your local hardware store, and run the snake through the hose until you find the clog. You may also take a high pressure hose and spray it down the hose until the clog is cleared, but if you use a water hose, MAKE SURE the hose is 100% dry before you use it again.

Also that bag full indicator can be adjusted if you are getting a lot of suction power and it still shows full.

I hope that these suggestions helped you diagnosis your Miele canister to figure out why the indicator showed full. If this helped you please rate my repair helpful.

Feel free to contact me if you need further assitance, I'm always happy to help.

Opened the cannister to remove the bag. The tube

This may be, and I stress MAYBE an issue with lining up the snap on the collar at the end of the hose (black tube). Please look carefully, using a flashlight or other bright light if necessary, to see if there is any indication on the collar for lining it up to 'snap' together. Unless the locking mechanism is broken off this should solve the problem.

Have the cannister 6500 SP just changed all filters but when I start the vaccum it shuts itself back off and the full bag indicator light comes on?

It sounds like the valve assembly (full bag control) is faulty. Threr are two O rings inside of it and the plactic holding the bottom one has broken. You'll have to take it to the shop.

Are you vacuuming up fine particals like pet dander or just large amounts of regular dust? Also when was the last time you replaced your filters?

Just some sugestions.

I have a kirby g4 vacuum that is 12 years old. it sounds like

About once a month as I have German Shep dogs and cuz of the hair I check all the hoses to make sure they are free of dust bunnies. I also take the bottom plate off the roller, turn the lever to losen the belt and take the roller off. Clean/cut all the strings, hair etc off the roller , check the belt for cracks and burns and replace if need be. Put the roller cover back on, and reconnect the belt.

Then on the side of the machine where the bag attaches, this also slides out to clean. Sometimes heavier items will get stuck in there so that dog hair and larger items cannot pass to the bag and it clogs. This will make your suction very low.

Also a good check inside the bag compartment and clean with the attachment hose if need be, helps a great deal with ordor and dust when turned on. Especially if you have dogs/dander and hair. Ive also put carpet fresh inside my bag to keep the doggy ordor down.

Clogged vacuum hose

I used a snake like they sell for unclogging pipes. I can use the snake on one end to break it up. I attach the other end to my industrial wet.dry vac and **** it clean. Sometimes I cannot imagine how it fills half a five gallon bucket of dog hair and stuff.
