Pull the head cover off to check the belt, if the belt is ok then it might be the power connection between the handle and the power head shaft. If the red light is on the power head, then its not the connection
because its getting power. Now some heads have a reset button on them,you could check this also.
With the cover off the power head, remove the belt, now turn it on, and be careful, but try to make the motor shaft spin,with one finger, because if it does start to spin you do not want to hurt your finger.

If the motor starts to spin,put the belt back on, if it does not spin again, the motor is too weak.
If it does not spin at all, the motor is bad.Hope this helps you,and you get it working.

SOURCE: Miele Callisto keeps turning itself off and has

Hi there, You don't actually specify how long it takes to turn off but this is normally due to a blockage in the hose or due to excessively dirty filters. Given that you have said the suction is low i would be inclined to think you have a blockage in your hose. Remove the hose and test suction of the machine again. If you have a notable improvement it is telling you something is stuck in the hose which you will need to remove.

What is orange/red flashing when charging


The color flashing tells you how close you are to a full charge. The orange/red flashing should change to yellow and finally green. Sorry I have an original model so your's might be slightly different. Does it never change from orange/red?

The telescopic wand on my Miele S5281 keeps collapsing, how can I fix it so it locks in place.


Hi There,
You can get a button repair kit and it should fix your problem which is normally a loose spring. In Australia VacuumSpot sell these over the net.

Need drawing to reassemble power head


Hello,

I have attached the parts drawing of the power nozzle that came with the Red Velvet model, or the SEB236. Unfortunately the way that it's posted online, it's done in a way that makes saving the picture and posting the picture here in the repair more difficult because the pictures are larger then the 150k that Fixya allows. I went ahead and uploaded this pictures to our site, and left the 2 links below in this repair.

Powerwash Powerbrush machine not sucking


It might be clogged, but you would be able to see the clog through the clearview water suction area. There are a couple areas to check:
1. The black gasket where clearview water collecting unit and the base's front meet.
2. Check if you're getting sufficient suction: remove the water collecting unit. When you turn on the the unit, you'll feel suction out of a black hose pointing upwards next to the grey dial. If you're not getting sufficient suction you need to check that all the gaskets are seated properly. there are 3 gaskets: (1) an orange one seated between the black hose and the base unit (2 and 3): On the bottom of the unit there is a removeable panel. This panel has a gasket (red) and inside there is a white gasket.

Miele power nozzle quits after 10 seconds of working.


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gifbecause it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar.

I am wondering how I can clean the inside of my Bissell Spotlifter Powerbrush hand held cleaner. I want to clean the part where you suction up - it is full of gunk and hair and I can't figure out if it comes apart or not so I can clean it. Can you help?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Normally on the Bissell Spotlifter Powerbrush the item will comes apart from the sides into 2 halves and then you can either clean out or blow out the inside of the
Bissell Spotlifter Powerbrush, also you can take a wire coat hanger and straighten it out and bend a hook @ the end of the wire hanger and you can use the hook to pull out the clog or whatever is blocking the opening and you can also use a blower or an old tooth brush to clean the motor or to brush it off.
Always, check with your local vac dealer. 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.
