Question about Miele Vacuums

1 Answer

While vacuuming my basement for over a half hour, the red light came on on the top near the speed settings and the machine felt real hot. I shut it off. Did it overheat and can I turn it back on after it cools down? It has a new bag and filters I just put in. Thank you, Bonnie Henderson

Hi Bonnie,

you should be able to restart the unit when it cools. I would like to also know how your suction is at the end of the hose, and down where the attachment is for the hose. Sometimes if there is a blockage the unit will also indicate that the bag is full even with a new bag. This will indicate as I suspect with your machine, that the hose, or the pipe to the attachment you are using is blocked up somehow.

See what you can find, If it is in the hose let me know. We can do something else to help you fix right away.

Good luck
Mark.

Why does blinking light come on and vacuum shuts off


If this is happening right after you turn the vacuum on, you probably have a belt issue or a brush roller issue. I would start with checking your brush roller to see if it spins freely. If it spins real freely, your belt is probably broken. If it spins freely but with some resistance, you still might need to replace the belt. I just worked on one last week that had that problem and a new belt fixed it. Worse case scenario, you might have a bad sensor. That sensor looks for the brush to spin at a certain speed and if it does not sense the right speed, it shuts the vacuum down and the light flashes. Hope this helps!

S7000 Just shuts off...


It's shutting down due to overheating to protect the motor ( and to prevent a fire! ). Running it and feeling around the motor to see if it's gotten hot would be the first thing I'd check. If the vacuum is new and giving you these problems, I'd return it to the store you bought it from and see what they'll do about it..there may have been a recall you aren't aware of.

Hose was not sucking but the rest of the vacuum seemed to be working. the model is a S7210 twist. it felt very hot and the red light was on. it then shut down completely. we can't see any...


No suction at the hose?

There could be a clog IN the hose somewhere. If it is easily removed, take it outside and run a garden hose through it. Your bag might be filled to the top as well...?

While vacuuming the red light for the bag of the vacuum came on and the vacuum stopped. The bag was no where near full so I replaced it with a new bag - same problem. It vaccumes for a minute or then stops...


I'm assuming this is the Epic 6500 or similar model.
Detach the hose, turn vacuum on. If it runs, place palm of hand against inport hole. If it shuts off the problem is with either the control valve setting or the control valve assembly itself.
For cvs, turn dial on top of vacuum all the way to the largest dot, and try above test again. If that doesn't work, then it's the CVA. It needs to be cleaned or replaced, which is an in shop job. Fro repair, take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store. I recommend a full clean and service to remove any dust/dirt from the motor, fan assembly, and other internal parts.

Another problem, which relates to the dial setting, is that fine dust will quickly clog the pores of the bag, resulting in the machine "thinking" the bag is full. Turning the dial to the proper setting helps get the bag fuller. The middle setting is the normal setting, and is for areas without fine dust and sand.

Full bag light will not shut off, even after replacing with a new bag and that includes the other filter on the back. I have a lux legacy vacuum cleaner and its less than a year old. Is ther some kind of...


First, make sure the dial on top of the machine is set at the half way point. If it is, and there's a lot of fine dust in your area, try turning the dial so the large dot aligns with the arrow.
If it's less than a year old, actually less than 10, the warranty is still in effect (unless generic bags are being used). The best thing to do is call the store or consultant you bought it from and talk to them. They can pick it up, or you can take it to the Aerus Electrolux store for repair. They will also gladly answer any questions you may have about the product. It's a great machine, and investment, and needs proper care to get the most out of it.
Make sure you take your "sales agreement" with you.
There are things that will void the warranty. Using commecially, vacuuming liquids, using generic "made to fit" bags (genuine bags have "Home Solutions" printed on the top), buying on-line (E-Bay). Check your manual for others.
To find an authorized dealer near you, go to http://www.aerushome.com/storelocator/, type in your zip code, and click on "view dealer list".

When I set it to manual, the sprayer won't spray. The sprayer light is on though


Hello, I hope this helps you...1st, rinse out the little filter that sits in the hole where you place your "Cleaning Solution" tank. It's a small piece of felt. If this gets loaded with dirt or soap...the machine WILL NOT SPRAY. If this doesnt work and your machine is out of warranty...there is an easy fix for about $20 Unplug the unit. Remove the screw under the clean solution tank, remove that plate and remove the two screws under it...next remove the 4 screws under the "Dirty Water" tank. Lift off the top of the machine and you will see a little red pump under the "clean solution" tank area. Remove the 2 screws and clamps holding it in and replace the pump. (Just do a Google search for "SPOTBOT Pump" until you find one.) That will do it. After replacing the pump, fill the clean solution tank..check for leaks and let the unit sit overnight. The pump has to fill with solution to work...

My vaccum shut off and will not start up.


Does it try? Or is it just totally dead, doesn't even grunt when prodded?
Some will shut off if overheated, and will later start just fine.

Some will shut off if an internal filter gets too clogged and the motor is straining too hard. Open it and clean/ replace any internal filters - often it's just a piece of mesh/sponge in a frame near the motor housing, inside the machine. Remove, rinse, shake off any water, re-insert. Try to start.

If vacuum is the bag style, is there a lever/switch inside that gets pressed when the bag is too full?

For a removable bag, try removing the bag and see if the machine will run for a couple of seconds without the bag present. Of course it might have a sensor and refuse to run if _no_ bag is found... but at least if it did try to run, that would give you a clue.

If it's the kind that has a rug-beater/spinning-brush cleaning head, is there a small (usually red) button possibly labeled "Reset"? What happens if you press that? If no beater head is involved, try looking all over the outside of the machine - and then start opening cover(s) and looking inside for anything like a reset button. Or a fuse. Can't really be more specific. Not a real expert... just spent hours poking around inside my own vacuum for a different problem.

Motor gets hot and stops running


Make sure all filters are clean, also check the inlet by the brush roll isn't clogged as well as the hose. If this is all ok, then there is a problem with the motor. There is a thermo protector that comes with the motor that could be bad.

No power to the motor
Posted by jdw121 on May 16, 2008
When I turn the machine on (both red and black switches) the red heat light goes on but the motor does not. If I leave the unit unplugged for a half hour or more, the unit will turn on. If I turn it off and then try a few seconds or minutes, the motor will not turn on.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me that you may have a thermal switch problem – when the machine gets too hot it will shut off to protect the machine until it cools off and then it will re-start or if it gets hot or plugged. The one light could be for the heater and the other could be for the motor, but it is a good idea to check with the customer service dept @ Bissell to see if they have a better solution and also check in the trouble shooting part of the owner’s manual. 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.
