Question about Miele Vacuums
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.

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.

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;
Please let me know if you have any other questions,

ok it sounds like the vacuum line that goes to your brush is clogged partially. need to remove soem screws and get to it from the underneath. or try blowing through the line with compressed air or blower side of a vacuum. its usaully the smal flat veins that clogg right before it goes up into the tube that you connect to.

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

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
