Question about Miele S300 Bagged Canister Vacuum

Miele Vacuum cannister

The power head on the vacuum generally does not work. I have tracked it to perhaps a loose wire at the spot where the tube attaches to the main unit. When the tube swivels, it makes the head work intermittently. So, how do I fix this, do I need an entire new tube unit, or can the wires be somehow adjusted.

I just fixed the same problem on my Miele today. There is a switch inside the swivel assembly that turns the power head off when you stand the wand all the way up to the locked position. The circular space on which the switch is located becomes packed with dirt, dust and hair and the switch begins to actuate every time you make a hard swiveling turn. Eventually, if you get enough crud packed in there against the button, the power head won't run at all. You need to take the power head apart and clean it out. Mine runs fine now. The Miele dealer told me they couldn't fix the power head and I would have to buy a new one for $200! Ha!

Most times you have to replace the neck on the powerhead. Sometimes the switch in the handle of the hose will have a bad solder connection. But S300 is not a good model number, also the powerhead has its own number on the bottom, so couldn't look up parts for you.

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.

My home has a central vacuum system hook-up but no vacuum installed. My friend upgraded his central system and gave me his Eureka Mega Boss central vacuum system and the accessories, including the pow


The power head requires 120 Volts. Some hoses have a receptacle in the handle for the power head plug, and the hose has a cord at the wall inlet end that plugs into a receptacle. Some hoses have a plug at the wall inlet end that plugs into a 120Volt receptacle built into the inlet. The hose plugs into this receptacle when you push the hose into the inlet. The power for this built-in receptacle is wired with line voltage when the system is installed.

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.

This is a problem with the hose, and unfortunately it will require replacement of the entire assembly.

The SES-125 hoses produced in the general vicinity of late 2002 had a tendency to start building up static and kicking the motor off after a few years. The problem was rectified, and the more current hoses do not have this problem.

Head to your friendly neighborhood Miele dealer and get a new hose, and this problem will not occur again.
