Question about Miele S558 Red Velvet Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

My red velvet Meile S558 is dirty, tacky, and cannot be cleaned.

Original finish is gone and now the canister is a mess. Anyone else having this problem? I'm a neat freak and hate that the vacuum looks dirtier than the floors and rugs. Tips for cleaning and restoring the finish are welcome.

What do i do if my red velvet won't start?


Try laying it over on it's side and turning it on. If it runs on it's side but not in it's normal configuration, it probably has a broken cord reel. That can be fixed by using a LARGE push lock (you can buy them at a good hardware store) and pushing it onto the shaft of the cord reel axle. A nice cheap fix.

I have a Miele silver moon that kept shutting off while using it. I replaced the hose with the new 125-s model but problem came back. It does appear to be a problem with the hose. Any suggestions?


My S558 Red Velvet had the same problem. I disassembled the handle and cleaned the rings and electrical contacts. The problem has not come back.

Need drawing to reassemble power head


Hello,

I have attached the parts drawing of the power nozzle that came with the Red Velvet model, or the SEB236. Unfortunately the way that it's posted online, it's done in a way that makes saving the picture and posting the picture here in the repair more difficult because the pictures are larger then the 150k that Fixya allows. I went ahead and uploaded this pictures to our site, and left the 2 links below in this repair.

I have a red c velvet. My vacuum keeps shutting


Could be you have a filter issue and it is overheating and shutting itself off. Make sure you have not put on the wrong filter type for the machine. Some of the pieces that come in the FJM boxes are not actually filters and people make the mistake of putting them on as filters. The other major problem that could be happening is that there is some problem with the hose itself. On my vacuum it will shut itself off after 2-5 minutes, but the power light remains on. I have to press the up button to get more suction, but that only lasts until it shuts itself off again. If I unplug the hose from the cannister... the power comes on fully and the vac never shuts itself off.
A tech told me that the likelihood is that there is some component or connection in the hose control that is causing faulty shutdown. He told me I would need a new hose costing $175. After a year of trying different things, I am convinced he is right and we need to bite it and just buy a new hose.

No power to my miele s558?


It's a bad model that's why they took it off the market. Mine is doing the same thing have taken it in twice for the same reason. First time they replaced the cord $200.00 which I did not believe it was the problem. A year and a half later still cutting off on me as if it's over heating I took it in and they found nothing. Took it home and it did it again within 5 minutes of using it, new bag inside suction was fine. Can't explain why this has happened since I have owned this vacuume. A LEMON! pilmammy@gmail.com
