Question about Miele S524 Mercury Bagged Canister Vacuum

Open Question

I cannot fit a Miele SF-AH 50 Active HEPA filter into my S524 Miele vacuum. It doesn't seem to have the rear tabs in the right place to push it into place all the way. When I put it into the place, the top won't close. I'm afraid I'll break something if I force it down. What is wrong?

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.

SOURCE: Electrical power down while vacuuming (not a reset)

Thank you JonahBegone!
My 4 years old Silver Moon has been power down off and on for a couple of months, but all of sudden it kept doing it. Then the power won't turn on when I plugged it in ( this turns out to be another problem, see my other posting). I took your advice on taking the hose and handle apart. I unscrewed the 5 screws, but can't pull the handle apart to look inside. I was able to see the 3 metal contact on the hose that you mentioned through a 1/4 inch gap when I forced the handle apart. I cleaned the black stuff off through the little gap by rotating the hose a few times. Then magically, my power down problem also went away. Thank you once again.

SOURCE: my vacuum (miele s251i) will not turn on.

Hello Miller_04,
Regardless of how the filter is put in the vacuum cleaner should turn on. Really is no way to put the filter wrong in these. I have a white star myself.

You can contact Miele Vacuum support and they can further troubleshoot or recommend a vacuum shop in your area to send it to for repairs

Blows hepa filter from mounting


I have seen generic filters do this. Be sure to use original Miele filters. The generics are a few dollars cheaper to buy but you end up with an inferior quality filter that could cause other problems by continued use. same is true with bags.

A clogged filter may also do this. Miele vacuums are very tightly sealed, the exhaust air has to come out. If the filter is clogged, the pressure could pop the filter out, HEPA filters are suggested to change out about every 50 hours, for most people this is between 1 - 1.5 years.

We had a Miele come in for service the other day with the same complaint, installed filter was a generic, customer said it was a new filter just installed. We replaced with an original filter and problem ceased.

If you need any help feel free to contact me.

I have a problem with a miele s524 canister vacuum. While the motor is running and you pull out the power cord for more length it shuts off.


Be careful here, the cord inside is connected somewhere to the unit and it may have come loose (the connection) If you can safely get it apart a look will show where the issue is but I would also suggest having a shop do that for you--better safe than sorry.

My Miele Solution HEPA 5000 vacuum cleanr gives off a burning smell but will continue to run with a varying motor tone. I have not run it for more than a minute like this. I have reviewed responses to...


Check both the bag and the HEPA filter behind the bag, torwards the motor. The HEPA filter could be clogged. Love these units but it takes clear attention to multiple filters.

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.

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 been given a SF-AAC 50 Miele filter which I was told fitted my Revolution 700 cleaner but I am very frustrated as I cant get it to fit please help


That is the wrong filter - the 50 series only fits Miele S4000 and S5000 models.
The filter you need for the 700 is the Miele SF-AAC-30

Miele Revolution Vaccuum cleaner manual


Under the download section is the owners manual. This is for the same series Miele that you have so this manual will have most everything you need to know. The black filter is a charcoal filter, this is good if you want to control the odor but don't have allergies. If you have allergies you might wont to get a HEPA filter. I would recommend changing the filter every 6 months to a year. You need to use the empty filter when you want to use it as a blower. The hose will not fit into the opening with the HEPA or charcoal filter in place. I hope this helps.

Yes they can be used together, and they would fit in the same slot if there is room.
