Miele s7 upright twist

Our vacuum has no suction, is overheating and spitting out debris when we attempt to vacuum. Finding talc-like powder in the bag (no new construction) but home is recently purchased after foreclosure. Have had repaired 3 times, but continues to clog each time after about 5 minutes of vacuuming.

It could be that your belt isn't on right. There should be a diagram where it goes to show exactly how it goes. Also, make sure the brushes are clean and there are no kinks in any hose anywhere. If there is no suction, there might be an obstruction somewhere. If it's not in the vacuum, check the hose or attachments.

SOURCE: miele vacuum cleaner not working properly

Is the suction low or ok at the vacuum without the hose attached? If it is ok, then there is a clog in the hose. If it isn't, then check filters, is the speed variable, is the contol set too low. Could be a bad motor, running too slow.

SOURCE: Bosch Vacuum Cleaner: I changed

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

It sounds like you may have a bad thermal switch inside the machine. Most vacuum cleaners have a switch connected to the motor, so if the vacuum cleaner is running hot, it will shut off to prevent any damage to your motor. You did all the right things by checking the bag, making sure the hose was NOT clogged, and replacing HEPA filter.

Most of the time on canister vacuums, the reason is caused by a clog in the hose, or somewhere in the powerhead. If you're sure that there is no clog anywhere, it is going to be the thermal switch on the motor.

Here's a link to the parts schematic for the Bosch upright vacuum. I hope it helps you in determining how to access the thermal switch. A word of warning to you before you try it, this is a very tough vacuum cleaner to work on, you may want to bring it in to a vacuum repair shop, as this is not an easy repair.

Here's the link;

SOURCE: No Suction

is your brush roller turning? unplug the vacuum and see if you can turn the brushroller by hand.if it turns real freely the the belt is broke ,if its real hard to turn then something is caught up around the bearings on the ends of the roller.my suggestion is if your having that much trouble withit take it back and tell them you want a new one.if they want to keep your buisness they will give you a new one

SOURCE: Hoove Cyclonic Bagless vacuum shuts off after only a few minutes

The motor has a protective overload cutout device to stop it from over heating - this can be caused by a blockage of some sort in the hose or brushroll compartment or blocked filters.
After checking the above and it still cuts out, take it back under gurantee

The hose is blocked, how do I get it off to unblock?


Hey, this is Tristan with Crucial Vacuum,

In order to remove the hose to start unblocking it, do the following:
1. Put the vacuum in the upright position
2. Press the release button of the telescopic wand and remove the handle from the hose
3. Push the hose elbow downward into the catch hooks.
4. Undo the suction hose by twisting it at the elbow.

If the blockage isn't in this location you can do the following to search further for blockages:

5. Open the service flap on the back of the vacuum.
6. Unscrew the screws and pull the cover free.

Below I have attached a link to the users manual for the Miele S7210. You should refer to page 30 to view the diagrams pertaining to my suggestions.

1 Answer

I've replaced the bag, but the machine will not pick up dirt; there is no suction.


Hey, this is Jeremy with Crucial Vacuum,

I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with your Miele Vacuum. There are a few things you can check to restore suction to your vacuum.

1. Your suction setting is too low or the automatic setting is not registering properly.

2. The filters are too clogged. They need to be cleaned or replaced. Without proper air flow, your vacuum will have either decreased or no suction.

3. Vacuum hose is not air tight. If the hose or any other portion of your vacuum is leaking air it will diminish or completely abolish all suction.

4. The roller is clogged. If everything else has failed, flip over your vacuum and check the roller. If it is too clogged with hair and debris your vacuum will not be able to pick anything up. Simply remove the gunk and try starting up your vacuum again.

Making a loud sound


could be that the clutch is bad or the brush roll needs to be removed, cleaned, ends removed and lubed. Try to spin the brush roll and see if it moves freely...if not, it needs to be cleaned and lubed at both ends. I fixed mine today by doing this...not an easy task to remove the brush roll, but it can be done:)

Miele vacuum.. my vacuum is on but no suction at all. help pls..


Had no suction on my miele upright. Turned out to be obstruction in hose as marked below. Before taking the back off try the simple things first, full bag etc.
img_0395-byp1g3tibwwetlenyy3qs050-4-0.jpg
You need a torx screwdriver with a long thin handle. Lay the vacuum on its back, open the front, remove the bag. Hinge the cover further open, pull the cover sides slightly out and cover can be slid off.

Remove these screws
img_0392-byp1g3tibwwetlenyy3qs050-4-1.jpg

And these
img_0393-byp1g3tibwwetlenyy3qs050-1-3.jpg

Now you can turn the vacuum over. Pull the handle out, and the center back section will hinge out at the lower point arrowed, be careful here not to break the tabs where it hinges.

img_0391-byp1g3tibwwetlenyy3qs050-1-4.jpg

On my vacuum the obstruction was clear to see in the hard plastic end of the hose, and could be removed with long pliers.

Hose was not sucking but the rest of the vacuum seemed to be working. the model is a S7210 twist. it felt very hot and the red light was on. it then shut down completely. we can't see any...


No suction at the hose?

There could be a clog IN the hose somewhere. If it is easily removed, take it outside and run a garden hose through it. Your bag might be filled to the top as well...?

My vacuum does not have any suction, and it spits out dirt when I roll it backwards. It is an upright Hoover Elite


Trouble Shooting guide:

1. Check to make sure that your agitator still spins. (Agitator = brush). If your agitator does not spin, it could very well be a belt gone bad and means there will be no suction.

2. If belt is fine and agitator spin, your vacuum could be clogged. A clogged vacuum can be cleaned with a brush inserted into the hose of the vacuum to pull out the debris.
