Question about Miele Blue Moon Bagged Canister Vacuum

Open Question

Miele Blue moon vacuum motor surging on and off and power light flashing. After many surges of the motor (on->off->on-> off etc), the motor no longer attempting to start as ferquently ie. now off for many seconds and may turn on for 1 second.. sometimes stops turming on and just power light flashes. There is also no voltage at the plug for the hose for the power head. I noticed that the vacuum first started having probs when hair was caught in the power head and the ovetrheating light went on. then motor surging on and off and the power light is flashing. Looks like something in the control circuit board may have blown. Any ideas what? Potentally I may need to bypass the circuit board. Any ideas or sugestions. Thankyou.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Miele s571 vacuum cleaner power surges up and down

I just repaired the same problem. It is not the motor. There is a defective capacitor in the regulator. Large grey capacitor should have a value of 0.22uF/275V. It was in my case just 85uF. Changed capaitor and it was OK.

SOURCE: Blue Moon Miele power head stops intermittantly

It is not a solid short. This is caused by static arcing in the wand and in the connectors from base to hose. I was able to fix mine by smearing some dialectric grease on all electrical parts in the wand(especially by the led switch) and in the three prong connectors at the base to hose. Have not had nay problems since doing this.

Miele Silver Moon Losing Suction Power


That is possible, also check for a.m. exhaust filter off the motor. Usually a very fine filter to stop dust that gets past the bag. May just need to open it up and clean out the accumulated debris.

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.

How do I install new filters on a Miele Blue Moon?


There are two filters on the blue moon. The hepa filter and the motor filter. You get to both filters the same way. You open the lid, like you do when you change a bag. The motor filter is right behind the bag inside a plastic cover. There should be two tabs you can pull down to open and access the filter. The hepa filter is located toward the back of the bag chamber but on top. There is one tab in the middle that lift up on.

This is a problem with the circuit board in the SES-125 hose. If you replace the hose, this problem will stop. Unfortunately this is the only solution to this problem.

Could be a problem with the cord. There also is a circuit board by the motor that could be the problem. Did you drop something in the hose to see if it comes out the other end? Because you could have a clog. Or just unhook the hose and see if it runs that way.
