My vacuumcleaner Miele Flamenco II, the powercord doesn't want to go back in. the hole lenght is out and doesn't wind up anymore. what can I do? Thanks Wijnanda


Well, First of all, let's make sure that the vacuum still works with the cord in this position?
At least you are not without a vacuum, right?

Now-- Temporarily you will have to do what we used to do before Cord Rewinders were invented, and just coil up the cord, neatly, when you store it.

And next -- getting it repaired:
If you have pulled it all the way to the 'STOP'-- nad the internal catch is not releasing-- try one more firm pull-- if the catch is not releasing, then the cord winder is either jammed, or broken. Either way, someone is going to have to tear into it, and either repair or replace the winder spring, or catch-- Repairs could run $100.-- Are you interested in making that investment?
I will tell you that Meile is a very well made machine, -- and to replace it is going to be MANY hundreds of dollars-- So-- your next decision, is to decide if you want a newer machine, or do you like the old one enough to make this repair investment?

If you want to tear into the re-wind mechanism-- You are going to need a good work bench, tools, and you will be working with a powerful re-wind spring

Let us know if you care to go deeper into this problem.

Hi There,

Here's a link to a repair solution that I've done explaining how to diagnosis the cord reel, and open up the machine. The model this is done on is not the same exact model as yours, but the repair will be almost identical. Usually when this happens all of a sudden, chance are good that you need to replace your cord reel. Due to a request by the manufacturer we are no longer allowed to sell the cord reel online, however if you need to obtain one, just give us a call and we'll be happy to provide one for you. Hope this was helpful! If it was, please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave some feedback for me.

Accessing motor Miele Flamenco II


I had the same thing happen to my S251. Open up the vac. There is a third hidden screw in the groove where the accessory door is hinged. It's really well hidden, use a flashlight. Once its open, you'll have access to the power cord and you can test its conductivity. I didn't really believe it could be something as pedestrian as that, but the retractable power cord takes a lot of abuse, and eventually it fails. Replaced mine and the vac works great.

Vacuum got left in the rain, can't get housing apart


Remove any screws you see on the top rear panel. Take off the filter to reveal another screw. The control panel across the back look between the lid and that panel, there is another screw there. On the very back there is a black strip that helps hold the top panel on. Then the top panel will come off.
