It's plugged in but won't turn on?


Let's do some trouble shooting:

With it plugged in, do you see any lights on the control panel?
Miele also has a little device, that let's you 'park' the floor want in a neat little slot at the handle end of the machine-- and when it is plugged in there, the machine shuts off.

Finally there are switches on the top of the machine that control the speed of the machine-- what happens when you operate that switch-
The other switch turns it on and off-- Do you feel the switch snap when you push it?

Let us know what you find--

Our miele red star(s314i) vacuum was running great and quit suddenly. It had not been running for a very long time and just quit. Newish bag, no clogs in hose and doesn't seem overly hot. the over heated...


Ok, so if the cord test didn't fix the problem, then it sounds like either the plug has gone bad, or the switch. The plug is a very common problem to go bad, and can be caused by just simply yanking the plug out of the wall, or putting too much tension on the cord while you're vacuuming. Here's a link showing how to replace a plug on your Miele. You may purchase a plug at a Home Depot for very cheap. If this doesn't fix your problem, then it is either going to be the entire cord reel assembly that's gone bad, or the switch. The plug is the easiest, cheapest next best option, so hopefully this is your problem. Here's a link on how to change the plug out;

Please just use the comment field again if this doesn't fix it, and I'll walk you through step by step the more detailed process of replacing the cord reel.

My miele titan is not turning on when plugged in. i think it might be some sort of clog? but the electric head is working... help!


Wow!, that's not typical of a Miele, especially a new model like the Titan which has been on the market for less than 2 years. If I read this correctly, your power nozzle (electric head) is working, but the main suction motor is not. Thta's usually a sign that the carbon brushes in your suction motor are stuck or too short. Again, not a common problem with Miele. A clog could cause your machine to run hot from reduced airflow and then shut down until it cools, but it would shut the whole machine down, not just the suction motor.
Is your power dial, (located just forward of the main switch and cord retractor buttons) set to minimum? If so, you just might not be getting enough suction. If, after turning the dial to maximum, you still get no suction, then you should definitely take it back to the dealer you bought it from. You have a 7 year motor warranty and a 1 year warranty on all non-wearing components. If you bought your vacuum on the internet then you can go to www.mieleusa.com and search for a local dealer. There is a 'Dealer Locator' link on the left side menu.

New Miele Red Star - Powerbrush not working


Wish you had listed the model number of the vac and of the powerhead. The plug going into the cannister, is it pushed all of the way in, also same for the plug going into the hose end? You can hook up the powerhead plug to a/c and see if it runs, if it does, then it is ok. Unhook the hose and plug and hook up a/c to that plug end and see if the powerhead will run, if not maybe the switch on the hose handle has a problem. Otherwise you have a problem in the cannister. If this is brand new, then it has a warranty, take in for repair.

Most times you have to replace the neck on the powerhead. Sometimes the switch in the handle of the hose will have a bad solder connection. But S300 is not a good model number, also the powerhead has its own number on the bottom, so couldn't look up parts for you.
