Get a new one. everything in the electronic whirlwind world gets 10 times/faster/sharper/cheaper as each year goes by. In addition older scanners very often do not work with XP/Vista PCs because of system changes.

SOURCE: I just bought a Miele s558 Silver Moon, seems like

Greetings from GoVacuum,

Ahh, the Miele Silver Moon model S558i. This is great model that I know a lot about because I actually own this exact model. I have had my Silver Moon now for going on 10 years, with almost no problems. The motors in the Silver Moons are excellent, and should last 20 or 25 years without problems. This particular model did have one major problem however. This is the first model that Miele put the suction controls in the handle of the hose of the vacuum, allowing the user to easily adjust the suction setting with fingertip controls. The problem with these models is that static electricity (usually happens when vacuum carpeting) causes the hose to shut down the power to off. You can be in the middle of vacuuming, and all of a sudden the vacuum will turn off. You can easily turn back on the vacuum with the push of a button, but it's irratating for sure.

Miele did come up with a solution for this problem with a newly redesigned hose, part number SES125-3. Since this new design has come out I haven't had a single issue with my hose. The way you can tell if you have the old or new hose is by the numbers (or lack of ) on the different suction levels. If your hose goes up to 1100 Watts, then this is the older style hose. If you're hose simply has a minimum to high setting with no numbers at all on the hose, then this is the redesigned 125-3 hose.

If you have the older style hose, I would get the dealer that sold you the vacuum to exchange the old hose for the new hose, you definitely don't want to have to buy that new hose ($150+). If you have the new hose, then I would say stick with the Silver Moon over the newer Miele models, in my opinion the Silver Moon is one of the most durable models that Miele has ever made.

The only other thing you need to be careful of is the cord reel. When you are retracting the cord reel, it's best to kind of guide the cord back in, and take it slow rather then just stepping on the cord rewind pedal. The cord reel can sometimes be touchy, especially if you are rough with it. If you're careful with it, you should never have any problem with the vacuum cleaner as long as you change the filters on a regular basis as well as the bags.

I hope this helps, if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at chris (dot) jones (at) govacuum (dot) com.

Thank you,

Chris Jones

I have a ten year old Amana bottom freezer refrigerator bx21v1c,and the compressor has died. I am debating as to whether to buy a new refrigerator or to pay up to $800 to replace the compressor.

There is no way that I would spend $800.00 on a ten year old fridge... I can do my own and I would not replace a compressor on a ten year old unit...too many problems afterward...too many other things that could go wrong shortly...

You will be better off to take the $800.00 and put it towards a new unit...

Im looking at a jeep 2002 with 4.7l motor. was there any problems with that year over all?grand cherokee sport.135000 a women with no knowlegde of buying a vehicle by myself. thank you jody

The 4.7l is an overhead cam V-8 motor. It is plagued with problems involving sludge build up, poor oil circulation, and engine failure due to lack of lubrication. Personally, I would avoid any vehicle with this engine.

I just replaced the motor in my Kenmore Series 90 dryer, When I'm running the dryer with no heat it runs as quite as could be expected for a ten year old dryer, When I run with heat the dryer starts making...

It could be possibly your rear roller bearings expanding with heat causing them to not spin as freely? Im not really too sure but its an idea you dont have many moving parts on the unit. Just your idler pulley, blower wheel, and rollers. Hope this helps.

Our dryer has no heat. Is it worth fixing?

Hello ES Bailey,

The answer depends on a couple of other considerations first. If the dryer has been a good perfoming appliance for most of the time and hasn't had any major issues or constant repairs needed, it would be less expensive to repair the dryer than to buy new.

Some other things to consider, is the interior drum of the dryer still in good shape/condition? If so, repairs will be cheaper than buying a new dryer every time.

If the washing machine you have is getting ready for replacement, you might want to consider buying a whole new set of laundry appliances, but again, it makes more sense to buy only the appliance you need, rather than getting all new ones. Unless money isn't an issue and you're looking to get a newer style front loading washer, etc.

My only other advice is to say that there is nothing much in the way of technology or energy savings features for a dryer made today than one made 15 years ago. There is no such thing as an energy start rated dryer made anywhere in the world, unless you're hanging clothes on a clothesline to dry. So the only thing you'd get by buying a new dryer is, a new dryer at a higher price than the repair will be.

If it were me, I'd post a new question with the brand AND model number of the dryer and provide some details on gas or electric and so on and get some advice on how to fix the problem yourself and keep using it for years to come.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I just saw this model advertised in Australia online and they said, less than a year old!

model 5030D???????????????????

I would not buy a used appliance!
Just putting good money into bad. Unless I can afford to fix it.
And I f so I would be better buying a cheap new one and take the extended warranty in today's market.
But everyone's not me!

Kenmore Elite gas dryer

You said,

When I purchased my house 2 years ago, the sellers left the washer and dryer for me. They informed me of a problem with the dryer's start button not wanting to stay pressed in. They said their solutions was to use something to keep it pressed in and so I started using shipping tape for this purpose. Last night it finally stopped working - something behind the button is obviously broken (the switch). While looking for a replacement switch and an on-line service manual, I came across this site. I did order the part from Sears today and will attempt to repair the problem myself. If I cannot, I will buy a new dryer before I pay a tech $60+ to repair a 6 year-old dryer.
I did not have the model number when I called Sears but did have another number off the back of the dryer which was for the "panel control" and the number is 3979018. The sales rep did some cross-referencing and said I own model #11072932100. I was wondering if you can direct me to an on-line service manual so I will know how to replace the switch when it arrives.

Here our sponsor's site to fine what you asked me for, a service manual!

You sound like you are right on target !

Try Eurotech, Italy or Turkey. They are the manufacturers and are generally helpful. Have your model and serial numbers ready.
