Fiflters should be replaced at least once a year, they go bad. You could also have a clog in the hose, or the dirt inlet by the brush roll may be clogged. Take the hose off if you can, drop something down it and see if it comes out the other end, if not, then it is clogged. Dirt inlet, you have to remove the bottom plate for one end, the other end is where the hose plugs into. Check it for a clog.

I've replaced the bag, but the machine will not pick up dirt; there is no suction.


Hey, this is Jeremy with Crucial Vacuum,

I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with your Miele Vacuum. There are a few things you can check to restore suction to your vacuum.

1. Your suction setting is too low or the automatic setting is not registering properly.

2. The filters are too clogged. They need to be cleaned or replaced. Without proper air flow, your vacuum will have either decreased or no suction.

3. Vacuum hose is not air tight. If the hose or any other portion of your vacuum is leaking air it will diminish or completely abolish all suction.

4. The roller is clogged. If everything else has failed, flip over your vacuum and check the roller. If it is too clogged with hair and debris your vacuum will not be able to pick anything up. Simply remove the gunk and try starting up your vacuum again.

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No suction...so I took off the hose and checked for blockage, (nothing). Now I can't get the hose back on the canister. It just slips ar


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

The air turbo head for my miele flamenco II S251i spins but doesn't have suction


Check all the filters as well. We have dogs and the hair clogs up the filters. We take a air hose threw our vacuum once a month and it works like new again without replacing anything

My vacuum isn't cleaning/suctioning very well. The hose attachment will work and pick up debris but the main part of the vacuum (where the brush is) doesn't pick up. The brush only spins but there...


Check to see if the brush is turning when you have the vac on and the handel down 'of course keep your hands from that area when doing this ,you might have to lean the vac ,to see the resaults.

My vacuum won't pick up anything how do I clean it out


1. Replace bag if needed.
2. Check hose/s for clogs. You'll need to detach both ends of the hose, check for visible clogs first, then try to roll a marble through the hose. If it doesn't go all the way through, there's obviously a clog that needs to be removed. Blowing it out with a machine that has an exhaust port usually works for me.
3. Check tube in powerhead and intake on vacuum for clogs. Remove if necessary.
4. Clean filter.
5. Leaky hoses will also cause extreme loss of airflow/suction. No fix for this, except to replace the hose.

Vacuum not picking up


At the top of your wand, do you have a plastic swivel that cover a hole in the wand? This is for when you are cleaning curtains, and if that is open, or cracked you will loose suction there... also check your hose for cracks, or breaks. If it were in the shop I would put a gauge on it... normal suction is about 80-95 inches of water lift at the end of the hose. Once you have check each section of the hose, and wand, check the housing for cracks, a missing gasket (Very Good Reason For Lack Of Suction) As to your Filter, how long have you used that one filter, you can clean them for a while, but once a paper filter gets full of FINE dust you won't get it all out, you will have to replace the filter itself at that point. I hope this was helpful.

Vacuum hose has little suction.


There is most likely a clog in the hose. If the hose has poor suction the foot probably has poor suction as well seeing that the hose is what gives the foot assy suction.
