Question about Miele S514 Solaris Turbo Plus Vacuum

Miele Solaris height adjuster arm won't snap back in

Trying to figure out a problem with my Miele Solaris Turbo Plus 234/236 powerbrush, I started taking apart the powerbrush. I figured out the problem but now I can't get the height adjustment bar back in. I figure something inside must catch the metal part that dips into the bottom of the powerbrush, but I can't see any likely mechanisms when I open the powerbrush bottom up. And it doesn't seem to snap in. I don't remember how I took it out...seems it just snapped out. Am I missing a piece? Any help would be appreciated, as this isn't my vacuum!

Miele S514 Turbo red light on. Dismantled and cleaned. Motor checked and no resistance. Circuit board? Can it be be replaced or by passed?

If there is a circuit board between the cord and the motor it is certainly replaceable. Unfortunately my suppliers don't have schematics for the Miele models. You might try the Miele website, if there is one, or call your local repair shop to see if they service them. Sorry I can't be more help.

My turbo plus does not turn on when plugged in. This is the first time this has happened. Any suggestions?

Check the power switch, plug cord and vacuum wiring. A open circuit will cause that and you need a continuity tester to test it. Once you find the trouble part, replace it with the same size and rating. A dent or vent wire will cause not to flow the current and voltage so check it.
Thanks for asking.

Hi a curve piece of wire or metal fell out of the handle when taking it apart.Can`t figure out where it goes?

If it is about 2" long , it is the snap ring almost right at the end in the narrowest part which keeps the extension tube in place .
If it is about 7" long , It is the antistatic strip which sandwiches between the 2 halves of the handle underneath.
Hope this helps.

Miele solaris turbo plus S514 will not start in live outlet

The reason why the vacuum will not start is because of the cord winder. They are pretty tricky to repair yourself. A service center could probably fix it for about $50.00. It has been a while since I have worked on one of these but I think the screws are under the switch and maybe the filter.
