Sure you can. get a broom handle, pound a large finish nail into the end and bend the nail into a hook shape. stick the broom handle in the hose which needs to be straight and use the nail hook to grab and pull out the clog. hope this helps you.

My miele silver moon attachment brush stopped spinning. the belt looks good what could it be


It is most likely the hose. There are wires inside the hose that connect the speed and suction control on the handle, to the board inside the canister. After years of use, the wires can become damaged to the point that they wont complete the circuit anymore. Any vacuum store that sells miele will have the replacement hose. You can also get it from miele directly, or off ebay. Be careful going to the vacuum store if you dont have a trusted shop, as they make more money from the sale of a new vacuum, rather than a replacement hose.

Power Problem


Hi There,

Unfortunately this is being caused by static electricity building up in the electronic controls in the handle of the hose. I've seen this problem on numerious occasions, and in fact I have the twin brother of the Blue Moon, or the Silver Moon which used the same hose, and has the same problems in my own home.

The good news is that Miele has redesigned the hoses to fix this, and I have never seen a single problem on the newer style hoses. I guess the bad news is that the hose is not cheap.

I would recommend to you to go ahead and purchase the new hose. The average life expectancy of your Miele is 20-25 years, so you still have a lot of life left in your vacuum.

Here's a link to the SES125 Hose that fits your Miele Blue Moon on our website:
http://www.govacuum.com/miele-165.html

To change the hoses out, simply push the two tabs on the end of the hose that plugs into the vacuum, and pull the hose backwards until it disconnects. You'll see on the end of the new hose electrical connectors. Simply line these up with the opposity receptacles on the canister and push the hose down until you hear a snapping noise.

I really hope that this information was helpful to you. If you have any follow up questions, or would like a clarification, please use the comment box on this page.

If this was able to help you fix your machine, please be so kind and rate my repair or leave me feedback. This is really appreciated.

Thanks again,

My almost new miele Dog and Cat vac keeps telling me the bag is full when it's not (new bag, no clogs)and I have almost no suction. Any ideas?


Remove the hose and check the suction. It it is still bad check to see if the canister is closing on the bag. Most likely the hepa filter needs replaced. Here http://www.totalvac.com/mielevacuumcleanerfilters.htm

most vacuum hoses are made so you screw off the end attachment not real familiar with your model but pretty sure you can do that then just disattatch from canister and run broom handle through it hope this helps

Could be a problem with the cord. There also is a circuit board by the motor that could be the problem. Did you drop something in the hose to see if it comes out the other end? Because you could have a clog. Or just unhook the hose and see if it runs that way.

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.
