Sounds like the exhaust side is clogged. Remember a vacuum pulls air into the cavity, but for it to work properly it also has to be able to exhaust the same amount of air it takes in. If the exhaust is blocked it will continue to suck air inside and collapse on itself, which is why your hoses are getting shorter and harder to move. Check the exhaust system for any blockages, perhaps the hole you taped was the exhaust.
Most vacuums have an air duct on the hose to adjust the amount of suction. If this becomes opened, you will hear the sound you've described and the suction will lessen. Check the wand and the hose and see if you notice a sliding piece that can be moved to enlarge or decrease an opening in the wand or hose. Use this to close the opening and your machine should work as it's supposed to.
Hope this helps and good luck!
sounds like there is blockage in the suction hose -- lay the machine down and remove the lower floor plate and clean out the hose area where it bends down to the floor unit ( use a wire coat hanger to fish out the blockage ). also check the main hose for any obstructions.
Remove hose and turn on the unit with nothing on the intake - see if it helps - feel the suction with hand.
a) If it works fine without the hose - look for a clog in the hose, wand or the nozzle
b) If the suction is weak even without the hose: Clean the separator, If this is e-series or E2 Rainbow - remove HEPA and try vacuuming without it (sometimes it is too dirty so stops good airflow). New HEPAs HERE. If this is SE Rainbow - remove exhaust cap and if there is a sponge - take it out
My Dyson had exactly the same problem. I found the problem was caused by a blockage in the hose. Take the hose out where it joins the cleaner (it will come out if you pull it downwards gently) and take the hose out of the handle by squeezing the yellow buttons on either side. I pushed a rubber alkathene pipe down and found a piece of plastic was blocking it even though at first I was sure it wasn't blocked.
Hi, this sounds like you have something stuck quite firmly in the hose!! If you use a good sturdy stick then you should be able to move the object without any damage to the hose. Check along the outside of the hose first just incase something has pushed its way out of the hose wall.
Get back to me.........
This is a problem with the hose, and unfortunately it will require replacement of the entire assembly.
The SES-125 hoses produced in the general vicinity of late 2002 had a tendency to start building up static and kicking the motor off after a few years. The problem was rectified, and the more current hoses do not have this problem.
Head to your friendly neighborhood Miele dealer and get a new hose, and this problem will not occur again.
First, check the suction at the end of the hose and make sure there is good pull. On some models, there is a filter tray located under the dirt cup with a washable foam filter in it that could be plugged. It is also possible that the tray could have fallen out during your move. If it is missing, the motor will run, but won't direct the suction to the cup and you won't get any suction from the hose. Note.. not all models have this tray. If the tray is missing, you shouldn't get any suction from the hose.
