My miele s2181 won't turn on. When I plug it in and hit the power switch, the brush turns on but the vacuum motor doesn't. If the brush is unattached and I hit the switch, nothing happens. Help!!

SOURCE: motorized brush bar not turning on Dyson Vacuum

Apparent common failure is that either the thin yellow and or blue motor drive wires that run from the LH side of the vacuum where the "control board" is located down into the hinge / ball area become stretched and then fray and eventually break. Happened to my Dyson twice. First repaired under warranty, second took about 20 minutes. You need a Torx screwdriver to remove the LH panel ( 4 screws) and also an access panel (2 screws) at the side of the ball which permits access to the blue / yellow wire connectors. I replaced with a new wire and connectors having fed the wires through the access hole making sure sure enough wire was available for the movement of the handle. Also ensure that when the covers are replaced they do not trap any wires underneath.

SOURCE: Bottom brush will not turn.

Did you check the drive belt? There are (Ithink) 4 screws underneath that you must remove to access that belt. It's likely the cause of your problem. Iether that or a build up of other gunk there.

SOURCE: Miele Solarus Canister Vacuum stopped working

I am an amateur and novice.
Tracked My Miele problem to a bad connection at the outlet plug.

i think the constant slapping of the plug against the housing during rewind prob disconnected the wires inside the plug? Replaced plug

Titan power brush not turning


I had a similar problem,cleaned mine too and it looked clean but what i found was hair tightly wrapped around the spindle under the end rollers so tight you could hardly see them,they were pulled right in and it was a nightmare to remove.Try holding the two rollers and get someone to spin the brushes it should spin with rolling a finger over it.mine was not the same machine as yours but they all work the same good luck.

My Miele capricorn has started making an odd noise. It seems like something is blocking the engine. I've turned if off and on, and reset it and it still have the odd, almost loud barking noise. The power...


Greetings,

This is a major problem. The Miele vacuums motor should never make a loud noise, period. The way the motor is designed, it's quiet and should be quiet for the life of the motor. There are two motors on your Miele canister. One of the motors controls only the suction of the vacuum, while the other motor controls the power brush. Which one of your motors is making this horrible noise? You can tell this by removing the wands and power brush so that you just have the handle of the hose by itself. Now turn on the vacuum, do you still hear this noise? If yes, then this is a problem with your suction motor, and you need to bring this in to have an authorized Miele repair center take a look at it. The reason I say that is because you have a 7 year warranty on that suction motor, so if something is wrong with that motor, then this will be covered under Miele warranty. If it's the power brush motor that's causing the sound, this probably will not be covered unless the vacuum is under 1 year old. If it is the power brush, please just use the clarificaiton request here on Fixya and let me know, I'd be more then happy to try and walk you through diagnosing the power brush motor with you.

I hope this was helpful to you. If you did find this helpful, please be sure to click the thumbs up icon in the repair. I really appreciate it.

Meile s251i won't turn on


Hi If the power head isn't working it may be clogged. Try taking it apart to see if threads and general dirt has got in at the sides. Also without the power head if the Miele still isn't working then its a possibility that the on switch wiring is either loose or check the plug at the end of the power cord.

Miele Mistral S7280 won't run after changing the bag


The Mistral range is the same as the new S7 that's just hit Europe. Have you made sure that when you turn on the vac on the handle that you've switched the carpet mode on? There's a separate button just under the power on button that activates the Carpet setting. Other than that check the sole plate where the roller brush to check for a blockage.

Power head has power but motor won't run


Circuit brealer switch may be bad, but the fact that Rainbow nozzle made this strange sound makes me think that it may have happened because there is something wrong with the motor.

While unplugged - remove the brush and belt. Try turning brush ends - see if they yurn easily... Try turning the motor shaft - see if it turns and if it does - if it turns smoothly and if makes any strange sounds...

To really test the motor you can just bypass the circuit breaker switch.

Hoover Floormate brushes won't turn


With the drive assembly removed it is a black rectangle with a black piece extending down and to the right. There is a metalic fitting that engages the brushes. With nothing attached turn the motor on with the switch. If it doesn;t turn either the switch is bad or the motor is burned out. If you have a voltmeter check the ouyput side of the switch. If voltage is there check the motor plug. If good there the motor is bad. Hope this helps. Yes, the motor does get voltage when the switch is on. You can find parts by entering Hoover FloorMate H3000 parts into Google.
