It should be available for purchase. It may not be a stock item but you should contact your local Miele dealer so that they can get a price for you. Miele parts are only available at Miele unfortunately.
Again, check on the price of the housing VS. a new model.

Good luck.

How to fix a loud Bissell vacumn cleaner


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Before checking the possible causes for your machine being louder, please unplug the unit from the outlet.

Check the Pre and Post-Motor filters for debris. Dirty filters can restrict airflow. The pre-motor foam filter is square and located in a pull out tray underneath the dirt cup. The foam filter may be hand washed in cold water with mild detergent. Reinstall the filter when it is completely dry. The Multi-Layer Post Motor Filter is rectangular and located on the side of the machine. Note: The white Multi-Layer Post Motor Filter is not washable.

Detach the upper hose from the machine. Insert a broomstick into the hose to push any obstruction through to the opposite end.

Remove the screw from the left side of the lower hose on the back of the unit, and straighten this section of hose by pulling it down or lay the unit out flat, and roll the unit on its side with the lower house towards the top side. Look through the hose for any obstructions. Remove the hard plastic hose wand base (once held up by the single screw) to expose the lower hose. Push a broom stick through the lower hose to unclog. (The access plate can also be removed to provide a better view of the lower hose).

If you continue to experience excessive noise, you may need to contact Bisell by phone 1-800-237-7691 for further assistance.

Gear oil change. how much oil


Each gear case has two plugs - an upper, and lower. Take both plugs out and fill from the bottom till lube starts to come out the top plug. Do not fill from the top plug as an air bubble may prevent the case from getting filled completely. Gear lube is usually sold in a squeeze bottle or there's pumps available. If it takes more than one bottle, simply switch bottles, or put your finger over the hole till you get the lower plug back in. In colder climates it's best to change the lube each fall. Inspect the drained lube (old lube) for water. Water will either settle to the bottom and come out first or the lube will have a yellowish color. If there's water present - have the seals checked/replaced before refilling. Sometimes it's simply replacing the seal around the plugs. Do not let water in the lower unit freeze, as it can crack the Aluminum casing. Smaller engines might take a pint, and larger take a quart - but have extra on hand and make sure it comes out the top hole. Also check for drip spots on the floor if stored.

No power


Those have a tendency to short out in the wands. Use a test light or meter to find out where the power stops. Test lower wand first then upper then hose, then unit. Replacement wands are available, there's really no fixing them. I'll include a link to the wands I'm referring to.


Good Luck!

No suction?


-Check to make sure the dirt cup is empty.
-Check the filters, If your filters are dirty they can restrict airflow.
The black filters only may be hand washed in cold water with mild detergent, re-install filters when they are completely dry.
-Check for good suction at the end of the upholstery hose. If there is limited suction from the upholstery hose detach the hose from the machine. Insert a broomstick into the hose to push any obstruction through to the opposite end.
-Check the lower hose for clogs. Remove the screw from the left side of the lower hose on the back of the unit and straighten this section of hose by pulling it down or lay unit out flat (the detent will need to be pushed twice) and roll unit on its side with the lower hose towards the top side. Look through the hose for obstructions. Push a broomstick through this lower hose to unclog.
-Check brush belt and replace if broken.

I have a Miele S1721 Powerhouse upright vacuum. When the belt broke I took it into the shop (because when i tried to replace the belt, the tension was so tight I couldn't get it back together!!). When I...


Hi
The Miele uprights (S170 and upwards) with the Powerhouse title are ALL Panasonic uprights which have been at one time sold in the UK. Therefore the upright may use TWO drive belts which need to be looked at: Take off the sole plate and examine the drive belt which is around the beater bar. Check that this belt is moving easily. Then look at the fly wheel to the motor (usually to the left hand side) and check that the smaller motor belt is moving - it may be broken which is why the beater bar isn't moving and why tension is tight.
Generally NONE of the Miele Powerhouse models have a manual selector for height adjustment - they all use auto adjustment which means no manual selector. The vacuum principle means that general carpet which comes into contact with the brush creates a vacuum anyway between the brush and the floor. If the brush isn't touching the floor then its a possibility dirt or debris has managed to get between the bottom 2 rollers after the beater bar. Check behind the wheels to see that there is nothing there - most auto adjusting Powerhouse models will have a spring behind the wheel and it may have come off.

Beater Bar


Something may have come apart under the nozzle cover, you will have to take the cover off to see. Including a picture, maybe it will help.
