Question about Miele CatAndDog700 Bagged Canister Vacuum

Stopped working - warning light on

Yesterday while vacuuming, my Miele Cat and Dog 700 just stopped working and the warning light came on. After looking at my user manual, I thought maybe it had just overheated (although never happened before in 6 years), so I waited a while to let it cool down. 18 hours later, it still won't start - doesn't make a sound at all when pressing start button, but light comes on.
I suspect problem could have been caused by me trying to be economical with bags, as I often empty the Miele bag to prolong usage (I find bag full indicator comes on very quickly, so I empty bag out, however dust collects in bag lining).
I had a problem with low suction power previously when I used substitute paper bags, but once I switched back to Miele, and replaced/cleaned filters, problem was resolved. There didn't seem to be a decrease in power this time, machine simply stopped.
Any advice? Thanks in advance.

Re: stopped working - warning light on

Dear Lauren, can you please tell me where to buy these Miele parts? I have a Flamenco ii (red one). I was told by one repair shop owner that mine has the american made version of the motor (as opposed to the german made one). The diagnosis is that the Miele's motor control circuit board #04416342 is gone bad. But I was quoted $125 for this part. Seems quite expensive to me. Any idea where I can get them cheaper?

Re: stopped working - warning light on

There is an electronic circuit board on the motor that may have gone bad and will have to replaced, part # 06836740 and sells for around $75.00, for model S516. But if this a S316, then it could be the speed control mounted on the motor, Part # 04416342 and sells for around $83.00. Both of these models are Cat Naad Dog so you need the model number berfore you order a part.

My Miele cat & dog

Will it power up without the hose attached? If it does then you have a clogged hose. If not, there is a circuit board by the motor that may be bad.
