Any suggestions?
Many thanks

Blows hepa filter from mounting


I have seen generic filters do this. Be sure to use original Miele filters. The generics are a few dollars cheaper to buy but you end up with an inferior quality filter that could cause other problems by continued use. same is true with bags.

A clogged filter may also do this. Miele vacuums are very tightly sealed, the exhaust air has to come out. If the filter is clogged, the pressure could pop the filter out, HEPA filters are suggested to change out about every 50 hours, for most people this is between 1 - 1.5 years.

We had a Miele come in for service the other day with the same complaint, installed filter was a generic, customer said it was a new filter just installed. We replaced with an original filter and problem ceased.

If you need any help feel free to contact me.

Where do you put the prefilter on a miele canaster vaccuum


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.

I have a miele S712 (2 yrs old worked fine yesterday) - I had been doing some diy work inside and had the vac on just to reduce some of the dust in the air - after a while the vacuum fizzled out. I...


you have got dust in the micro switch and it is not latching on, if you look at this and clean it, that will solve your problem, however blowing the motir has probably wrecked the motor bearings.

Using my miele 4211 without a bag


You did what??? That really is asking for trouble! If it cut out from overheating then yes, it will come back to life when it has cooled. If it doesn't recover, you'll need professional help. I've no idea what country you're in, but in the UK Miele offer a fixed-rate repair service including collection and return delivery and new filters and a bag (!), which will almost certainly be cheaper than getting an independent service centre to do the job.
Good luck!

My Miele Silver Moon "Reset" light is blinking. What do I do?


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Ahh yes, the Silver Moon. One of Miele's best made vacuums ever! So good that out of all the different vacuums that I could of chose for my home, the Miele S558 Silver Moon was the one I chose.

When you're Reset button is flashing, this simply means that it's time to replace the HEPA filter on your vacuum cleaner. Miele included this feature on their upper end models to alert the user when their filter needed to be changed.

The Miele Silver Moon uses Genuine Miele S-Class HEPA Filter for S300i/S600i, and Miele S7 Uprights. Miele Part # 04854915 (replaces 04854911) Which can be purchased from GoVacuum for $52.95 with free shipping.

Once you have installed the new HEPA filter, simply press down on the flashing Reset button to restart the 50 hour internal timer inside. Miele recommends to replace this filter after every 50 hours of vacuuming.

When turned on the sound is like its screaming. It appears to be coming from the filter compartment. It all seems to work ok.Thanks


I suggest checking the filter. If it's coming from the HEPA filter area, the filter might be out of position or possibly you have the wrong kind of filter. Miele uses 2 different types of HEPA filter so that could be the problem.

Disassembly of Miele red star?


First remove the lid by opening it and pulling straight up while using a screw driver to pry on the black hinges that go straight down into the unit. After that there are two silver screws on the black pedal assembly pull up and back to remove this assembly . Remove the HEPA filter. Remove the screws under the pedal assemble and pull straight up. What ever you do do not remove the cord winder assembly it wil spring and you will have to replace it. For any parts,filter or bags for this or any other unit visit www.stevessewandvac.com
