Question about Miele Red Star Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Miele Red Star, small spark at outlet, no power to vacuum

Just borrowed my mothers Red Star to clean my new place... Used it in one room perfectly, and about 2 hours later brought it to a different room to use. Plugging it in in this room created a tiny spark at the outlet, (tiny tiny white smoke puff and pop) , I heared the vacuum start for half a second and shutoff... The outlet still has power, and I have tried other outlets. As of now I still cant get the thing to turn on... Is there any way I can fix this myself? It must have tripped a fuse inside the vacuum or something. I am pretty handy, any tips? She needs it back tomorrow!

The vacuum has a standard tube internal fuse. If you are lucky that is all it is. See the site http://www.sannerud.com/house/miele.html for instructions on how to open it up.

hope that helps

Room a 620 keeps stopping


It could be clogged with hair (when was the last time you cleaned it out?), it could be the battery isn't holding a charge any longer. It could be getting caught on something . How long is it running before stopping? I found I used to get about a two hour run from my Roomba, before the red light flashed. Then I started to unplug the charger and Roomba when it had a full charge and it wasn't needed. I noticed that after this the Roomba didn't run as long, maybe one hour, before needing a charge again. I leave it plugged in all the time now.

    Bissell Pro Heat 7901 will spay through hose but not the floor and red flow indicator will not spin. So we took the housing off and after unclogging a hose running to the hearter, my husband unhooked the...


    I borrowed my friends bissell to clean my carpet. It's the 7901. He brought it over and told me that it only sprayed out of the attachment hose. He said he couldn't figure out what was wrong. I'm no vacuum technician but, I am a mechnic. I decided to open her up and check it out. After about two hours it was back together and working. The reason I replied to your e-mail was because we have the same problem. I couldn't find an answer to this problem on this site so I will tell you what I found and hopefully it will help you. In removing the cover where the red heating light is, there is the heating unit for the water. In my case it is silver and it will get very hot so be careful. Notice that there is two water hoses connected to it. I removed this heater and found one of the connectors where the water hose goes was clogged. I took the back off the heater and used my air compressor to blow out the connector, and sure enough something flew out. Hope this helps. brian.small@bobstgroup.com

    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.

    I have 2 bissell pro x2's that are now both not spraying water


    Thanks to many others who have posted on similar problems -- water and/or solution sprays through the handheld tools, but not through the main machine.

    As others have suggested, I removed the water reservoir, which exposes the 2 main water sprays mounted above the rollers. Using, pliers, I carefully slid the clips back. Gently but firmly removed the two red nozzles.

    Elsewhere I have read suggestions to just do one nozzle at a time. However, I found out that if you remove both red nozzles, you can then blow through one side and it will come out the other. In my case, that dislodged a nice collection of crystal-like chunks (guessing it may be crystallized residue from the cleaning solution).

    There was also a bit of blockage in one of the red nozzles, which I cleaned out. Make sure you can blow through both of them with little resistance.

    Reassemble: Push red nozzles back into hoses. Using pliers, reposition sprung clip back over the red nozzle. Snap nozzles back into place. Refill tanks and power it up.

    In my case, that resolved the problem of no sprays from the main machine. Sprays like new now. Hope yours does too!! d

    Solution does not dispense


    The trigger that releases the water is connected by a piece of plastic inside the handle. This plastic tends to bend over time, so it won't press the plunger high enough. I brought it to a vac repair place for the same reason and they added an extension which made all the difference. If I were to do it myself next time, I would look to see if a metal rod were possible to take the place of the plastic. Maybe not, but it would be worth a look.

    Roomba does not do anything


    My Roomba has had a battery issue for some time now. I haven't used it in quite a while (months, years, I don't know for sure) because it would complain of a discharged battery after only a few minutes of cleaning. However, now when I finally tried to use it again, a new problem appeared.

    Now, it charges normally, if I plug the cord directly into the Roomba. It will not mate with the home base, however, even if I place it on the contacts manually.

    When I start it, all the buttons come on green. I then press a button to make it begin cleaning. The motor whirs up and runs for about 1 second, then it shuts down. About one second later, the power light and lights behind whichever button(s) I pressed (to give it a job) flash green then the system sits silent, and doesn't do anything else.
