This is caused by a circuit board problem in the hose. Unfortunately, the only way to fix this problem is to purchase a new SES 125-3 hose. The good news is that the new production hoses have rectified this problem and you will not experience it again.

Miele S251i Plus Bagged Canister VacuumMiele white star canister vacuum - won't turn on,...
I have the above canister vac, which after my son tried to vac the stairs, it rolled down the stairs on him, but still worked, after turned off/on. Then after turned off maybe 10-15 mins., stopped working when we tried the switch. My father in law is our fix it guy, but still having a problem with the switch. Is there a wiring guide we could look at?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You can try to call the factory for the Miele S251i schematics / wiring diagram @ the phone number and website listed below or I put a few pieces of information listed below that might help.
1. The vacuum cleaner switches off automatically
A temperature limiter switches the vacuum cleaner off automatically if it gets too hot. Some models have a warning light (triangle) which comes on to indicate that it has overheated. Allow the appliance to cool down for approx. 30 mins. and remove any blockages to the air path.
2. The "Change dustbag" indicator stays on even when a new bag has been inserted
To ensure the dustbag change indicator gives a correct reading, lift the floor nozzle or power head off the floor slightly to prevent the vacuum created in the suction tube from influencing the reading.
3. The exhaust filter indicator is red
Change the exhaust filter and then press "Reset" to switch off the indicator light.

It is not generally necessary to replace the entire cord reel, although occasionally it is.
Here's the quick and easy DIY way to make your cord reel work again: you will need a #2 phillips head screwdriver, any flat head screwdriver, a pair of scissors, and a zip-tie.
First, remove the bag compartment lid by gently prying the hinge parts inward with the flathead screwdriver until you can lift it free. Remove bag and exhaust filter, and then remove the two screws holding the rear control panel on. Lift the front of the control panel upward until you hear a horrible unpleasant crunching noise. You didn't break it.
Lift that free, and remove all screws from the top of the main housing. (I believe there are 6 or so... but I can't remember off the top of my head.) The housing should then lift free.
You should now be able to see your cord reel. see if it wiggles back and forth along the central axle. If it does, you'll want to place the zip tie around the side of the axle which is away from the large round copper contacts which look almost like leaf springs. This will ensure that the contacts make electrical contact again. Cut off the excess zip-tie.
When putting the parts all back together, it is essentially a reverse of the disassembly, but be sure that you thread the cord through the hole in the back of the housing before you attempt to screw the housing down, or you will be very sad; both because you'll have to disassemble it again, and because you'll probably jack up your cord and have to replace the reel, which is what we're trying to avoid.
Test machine. If it works: party. If not, you will have to replace the cord reel.
For further clarification on the process, contact me.

Growling sound on a canister is normally caused by a suction fan wobbling loose due to damage or a bad bearing. Loss of suction would occur if the fan is loose or damaged. If the bearing is bad but the fan intact you will still lose suction as the motor will not run properly out of balance. Take it to a Miele service center for parts
