Canister vacuum


Without the make or model... We are speaking in GROSS GENERALITIES... but

ELECTRICAL Trouble...
The light & the BRUSH not working ... when considered TOGETHER.. would indicate a NEED to check your electrical connections...

My best advise would be to:
make sure the cords & wands are fully connected
make sure the (HEAD) motor is running ...

If the motor (brush head) is running... belt looks good and brush is not seized (or jammed)...

You will need to look to the DRIVE PULLEY on the motor OUT-PUT shaft...

Hope this helps

The floor head is no longer working. The canister works, there is suction, but the floor head is dead. No lights, suction control switch inoperable, no headlight, nothing. It just stopped one day during...


Hi poohbear4760...
Check your wiring going to the vacuum head, some vacuums have a problem with corrosion on the plugs...take your connections loose and lightly sand with fine grit sandpaper the metal ends.
Plug the wires back together and see if it works...if not then it may be that you have a faulty motor in the drive head.
Please take time to rate me

Miele vacuum powerhead


My power head failed due to the handle switch. It comes apart with the Phillips screw under the vacuum kill slider. Check for continuity across the switch contact solder points.

The head on my Hoover Canister vacuum has stopped working


It sounds like the power connection pins, from the handle tube to the powerhead, are not making connection. The pins could have been damaged when you impacted it.

I have a panasonic mc-ul975 vacuum that works great when working properly. the airflow through the canister seems to stops once the aero blast technology is done running which causes the vacuum to not...


Hi there. In Panasonic vacuums2.gif, there is a thermostat protection on the motor. It will automatically shut off the motor if there is no airflow through the motor. This is typically caused by a clogged hose. Typically, if your dust container is that full, there could be backup in the hose. Or the dust container being too full could also or otherwise be the problem. Check your hose for blockage, let the machine cool off, it should start up again

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 white star canister vacuum - won't turn on, but isn't clogged

Miele white star canister vacuum - won't turn on,...
Hi,

I have the above canister vac, which after my son tried to vac the stairs, it rolled down the stairs on him, but still worked, after turned off/on. Then after turned off maybe 10-15 mins., stopped working when we tried the switch. My father in law is our fix it guy, but still having a problem with the switch. Is there a wiring guide we could look at?

Thank you!

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You can try to call the factory for the Miele S251i schematics / wiring diagram @ the phone number and website listed below or I put a few pieces of information listed below that might help.
1. The vacuum cleaner switches off automatically
A temperature limiter switches the vacuum cleaner off automatically if it gets too hot. Some models have a warning light (triangle) which comes on to indicate that it has overheated. Allow the appliance to cool down for approx. 30 mins. and remove any blockages to the air path.
2. The "Change dustbag" indicator stays on even when a new bag has been inserted
To ensure the dustbag change indicator gives a correct reading, lift the floor nozzle or power head off the floor slightly to prevent the vacuum created in the suction tube from influencing the reading.
3. The exhaust filter indicator is red
Change the exhaust filter and then press "Reset" to switch off the indicator light.

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
