Question about Miele Vacuums

Open Question

How to dismantle a Miele S 5980 vacuum cleaner. The RESET switch has fallen in and I can't remove the plastic panel to replace it. Neither can I remove the cleaner body to get in from beneath. I have removed 2 screws from the front of the barrel (nozzle end), one screw centre front, two screws towards rear, but there seems to be something else holding the housing together. ascolaro@aapt.net.au

Here is an exploded diagram which seems to show that the whole nozzle assembly is removed as one piece.

See if it helps:

SOURCE: I am trying to open the outer casing of the vacuum

There is a push in type flat plastic switch trim cover over the metal housing surrounding the switch.. You must unplug the cord, gently pry around the trim cover and you will find a screw, an irregular one underneath holding the switch in place. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN when reinstalling this one or you will crack the switch.

Once removed the rear housing will come off. Then you will see several new philips round head screws holding the front housing onto the vac.With all screws removed the housing should open easily but there may be dirty film inside holding the halves together. The fan shaft will unscrew revealing the fan, a spacer behind and perhaps two different spacer washers. Install the new fan hand tight, washers and spacers in same order...
Good effort figuring this one out. Please post back with results.

The red filter light will not reset after replacing the filter on my Miele S5980


Hi There, I actually did a repair on this problem only a couple of weeks ago. The problem could be that the small lever that pushes on the reset button on the circuit board is bent or broken. The little button costs about $10 from memory and certainly a whole lot cheaper than the board itself which is $234. Just to clarify in my case there was nothing wrong with the board, I was able to manually push the reset switch on the board and replace the tiny lever and problem was solved.

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.

Our vacuum (a miele S718) has cut out.


Probably WAY too late to help you now, but may be of assistance to others (I repair appliances): Several times, I've had Miele Vacs which show the red light, but the motor never powers up. If the vac was working perfectly before, 98% it will be a bad solder joint on the Motor pcb. Although it varies per vac: Remove the bag & 4 screws around.
Unclip & remove lid (flex off pivots), then remove centre screw. Lift off control panel. Remove all other screws under the control panel area.
Lift out motor & unscrew motor pcb. Turn over & inspect for any black joints - repair as ness. Reassemble in reverse order - note: difficult to locate top cover back on if lid wasn't removed, as lid power connection can interfere. Hope this helps...

Power cord broken inside s251i miele How do i open the s251i ????


HOW TO OPEN MIELE 251 VACCUUM: 1-Unplug from wall and disconnect power cord 2-Remove black switch panel at back of top panel: A-Use Phillips screwdriver, remove two silver screws visible between back of hinged top door and front of black switch panel
B-Push back of the panel down while pushing it forward (towards front of machine). There are two plastic notches and clips which are tightly fit together that you need to separate.
Once it releases, push it a bit more towards the front of the machine and lift off panel. It has wires connecting it to the main body so it will not remove completely.
C-Be careful not to lose the springs that simply sit inside of two plastic channels, one under each of the two switches. These are required for your witches to operate properly.
3-Locate screw at bottom of deep rectangular hole now revealed (under former location of black switch panels). Unscrew using Phillips screwdriver. 4-Open hinged top panel. Locate two silver screws, one on each side of main housing. Unscrew using Phillips screwdriver. 5-This will let you lift off the whole top assembly, door and main housing, revealing the plastic chassis and the motor unit within.
You now have access to the motor, wiring connector harnesses, circuit board and the cord reel.

I'm using Miele Medivac vacuum
Posted by greenvanilla on Jul 09, 2008
I'm using Miele Medivac vacuum and I just sucked in a small plastic eye drop container by accident (I sometimes take off the brush part to **** in 'small enough' articles). And it is jammed in the part where the plastic hose connector bends. I think I can take it out if I can just disconnect the long necked plastic hose connector that connects the metal wand part and the hose part. Is it designed to be disconnected or should I not even try it?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The long necked plastic hose connector is made to be replaced because they do brake upon occasion and the part is made to come apart. If you need assistance please contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer or to contact the Miele factory to get a owner’s manual to check the trouble shooting guide and or a schematic of the breakdown of how to un-install the

long necked plastic hose connector or gooseneck of which some people call it. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
