Bag needed changing there was no burn ing smell or strange noises before i changed bag after bag was changed it wouldnt start. the cord is new no fraying and vac is about 5 years old. didn


I'm not real experienced with this model vac, but I do know that many of the newer vac's are being manufactured with a small button or lever, whatever the particular brand of vac decides would best fit on their unit, that would be located somewhere around the edge of the bag door opening and would need to be depressed by having a bag inside in order for the machine to run. I would check for something of this nature to be sure that during the bag change that you didn't just miss putting it in quite right to depress the go button. Other than that, it's entirely possible that the switch died. If that's the case you'll need to bring it in to a vac repair shop for help.

My vacuum (miele s251i) will not turn on. I just changed the filters and bag. Just wondering if I have put the top filter in the wrong spot. Does it go under the black flip-up bit or on top of it? I do not...


Hello Miller_04,
Regardless of how the filter is put in the vacuum cleaner should turn on. Really is no way to put the filter wrong in these. I have a white star myself.

You can contact Miele Vacuum support and they can further troubleshoot or recommend a vacuum shop in your area to send it to for repairs

How to change filters on a Kenmore canister vacuum


Depending on age there may be one or two filters. A Hepa filter is an exhaust filter generally at the back end of the vac, sometimes at the back top.
For this style filter there will be a small grill with a release tab on it, simply pull the finger tab and the grill should pop off revealing the filter.
There is normally a bag chamber filter behind the dust bag as well. Open the bag chamber below the tool storage and remove the bag.There will be a soft filter sitting behind the bag on most models. If it is a sponge type it can be washed and reinstalled when dry, but if fabric it is disposable.Make sure you have replacement filters in hand before changing as some filters simply pop into a reusable frame, often a red frame. If the material slides out the frame is generally reusable, if glued in , it is likely disposable.
USE only the specified filter and chose the best quality multi ply filter bags for maximum vac performance and efficiency

I need to know how to change my kirby into a blower?


Raise the light assessory on the front of the vac. Remove the roller assembly by rotating the square dial as indicated by the arrows. Then you must attach the accessory that sort of looks like a 4 inch square open box to the front of the vac where you removed the roller assembly and lock into place. Next you remove your bag assembly by unsnapping at the top of the handle to the vac, then at the base of the bag assembly you must unlock the plastic base from the metal vac unit by turning it counter clockwise and then pulling off. Finally you attach the hose assembly where you removed the bag assembly and lock into place by turning clockwise (reverse of taking off bag assembly base). Put vac in neutral and power on. Now you will blow from the hose assembly.

Our vacuum (a miele S718) has cut out.


Probably WAY too late to help you now, but may be of assistance to others (I repair appliances): Several times, I've had Miele Vacs which show the red light, but the motor never powers up. If the vac was working perfectly before, 98% it will be a bad solder joint on the Motor pcb. Although it varies per vac: Remove the bag & 4 screws around.
Unclip & remove lid (flex off pivots), then remove centre screw. Lift off control panel. Remove all other screws under the control panel area.
Lift out motor & unscrew motor pcb. Turn over & inspect for any black joints - repair as ness. Reassemble in reverse order - note: difficult to locate top cover back on if lid wasn't removed, as lid power connection can interfere. Hope this helps...

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. When I did a Google and Durabrand.com search I found that the Durabrand is carried as a private label by WalMart and Target and upon my search found that most of the websites are saying that there are no parts or they do not provide a 1-800- phone # so that the average person can order bags and or parts. Suggest that you can search Google to see if you can find someone who carries parts for the Durabrand vacuum. It is probably a private label id which I spent over an hour looking for someone who would carry the vac bags for the vacuum you are requesting. Sorry I could not help you on this item.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Miele white star canister vacuum - won't turn on, but isn't clogged


Miele S251i Plus Bagged Canister Vacuum
Miele white star canister vacuum - won't turn on,...
Hi,

I have the above canister vac, which after my son tried to vac the stairs, it rolled down the stairs on him, but still worked, after turned off/on. Then after turned off maybe 10-15 mins., stopped working when we tried the switch. My father in law is our fix it guy, but still having a problem with the switch. Is there a wiring guide we could look at?

Thank you!

ALevy


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You can try to call the factory for the Miele S251i schematics / wiring diagram @ the phone number and website listed below or I put a few pieces of information listed below that might help.
1. The vacuum cleaner switches off automatically
A temperature limiter switches the vacuum cleaner off automatically if it gets too hot. Some models have a warning light (triangle) which comes on to indicate that it has overheated. Allow the appliance to cool down for approx. 30 mins. and remove any blockages to the air path.
2. The "Change dustbag" indicator stays on even when a new bag has been inserted
To ensure the dustbag change indicator gives a correct reading, lift the floor nozzle or power head off the floor slightly to prevent the vacuum created in the suction tube from influencing the reading.
3. The exhaust filter indicator is red
Change the exhaust filter and then press "Reset" to switch off the indicator light.

Same Shut Off Problem as Hamster71


The part that you call the particle size sensetivity adjuster is bad. There are 2 seals in the assembly, the lower seal is slipping out of place because the plastic lip which keeps it in place is broken. Split housings and replace part. This machine is alot of work to take appart and get back together correctly. Might want to bring to local vac shop. good luck.
