It could be the switch, reel cord assm., speed control or motor. Most likely not the motor, but possible. It will have to trouble shoot to find out what is bad.

Miele olympus 300

The Olympus is an S2 canister, which part stopped working?
If all of it stopped, the problem could be with the molded outlet plug. Before going to much further, check to see if you are still under warranty. One year parts, 7 years on body and motor. You might want to call Miele Technical Service.

My circuit board has a short on the soldering for the DC rectifier that supplies the carpet cleaning motor. Where can I order a new circuit board. Miele S251i

Just a suggestion, but you could try to re-solder the connection on the board. some of the circuit boards did not have enough solder on the board coming from the factory.

That being said, if the component is damaged due to the burning, I suggest you contact your local Miele dealer and have them order you a circuit board for the unit.

IF the unit is less than 5 years old as well, that part should be covered under warranty. Do NOT solder it, just have them replace the part.

Good luck
