My Miele S326i vaccuum cleaner has fallen over and broken the connection between the hose and the machine. Where can I get a new flexible hose for this machine in Sydney Australia? Or do I have to chuck it and buy a new one? Thanks for your help

There are several types of vacuum cleaners these days. Most people now seem to use the upright bagless vacuums since you do not have to buy the filter bags. Those vacuums are fine, if you take the proper care of them. Ithink it is a bit messy. In order for you to really prolong the life of any vaccuum, you must make sure the machine has plenty of circulation. In order for the vaccuum do the great job you expect, you have to do a little maintenance on it.
Is it just the corrugations of the hose broken? With most hose fittings there are two small oval shaped lugs on the side of the fitting. Grab a small screwdriver and gently (you may need a little force) push these in to ease the click ring out.
Once out, you'll find a type of screw cuff. Some hoses just unscrew, some are glued in (use boiling hot water to soften to separate).
Cut the broken piece of hose off, make sure the click ring is still on the hose in the right direction, reaffix the screw cuff, and replace the hose (with click ring) back into the hose fitting.
If it's actually the hose fitting broken, check with your local Wertheim retailer or repairer.
Your Power head is blocked with hair or dirt,,or the hose which connects the Upright with the power head is blocked. Try taking a steel coat hanger apart (straighten it out) and then push it into the pickup hose to remove blockage.
Under the download section is the owners manual. This is for the same series Miele that you have so this manual will have most everything you need to know. The black filter is a charcoal filter, this is good if you want to control the odor but don't have allergies. If you have allergies you might wont to get a HEPA filter. I would recommend changing the filter every 6 months to a year. You need to use the empty filter when you want to use it as a blower. The hose will not fit into the opening with the HEPA or charcoal filter in place. I hope this helps.
likely a broken belt. turn vac over and see if roller turns free. if it does the belt is broken. turn the handle on front of vac. turn latch under headlight and remove head. open bottom plate and return handle to normal position. belt and brush roll will lift out. reverse procedure to install. directions are usually printed on the head of vac under headlight.
