Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best thing to do is to see if you can open the power mate or powerhead, the sock is jammed in there and blocking the path of the dust and dirt. There should be some screws on the bottom to release the bottom plate or the top cover will come off, it would be one or the other it probably is stick in the gooseneck the swivel neck portion of the vacuum and or the wands or hose. If you need further help look in the owner’s manual or contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or call Sears cust serv listed below. If you need an owner’s manual Sears or your manufacturer will provide one for you if you give them the brand name and model #. 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.

The vacuum is on and sucking--but the beater bar will not turn on. Its not that its not rotating, the motor sound from the head does not come on.


If it is anything like ours, it is the circuit board. Needs replacing and like everything else Miele, it is expensive. Wish I had gotten something else. Tired of throwing money away to fix our Miele!

I have a windtunnel 2 vacuum. It sucked up a cord that wrapped around the beater bar. Now the bar won't turn. There was no smoke or sign of something burning. The motor still runs and there is suction but...


Check the actual beater bar for movement. I have seen the plastic melting, and bearings seized under such circumstances. Also I am unsure by your question, but the motor that creates the vacuum (sucking) is different than the motor that spins your beater bar, so make sure that both motors are operating. (there is usually a small switch in the bottom that turns this motor off when the handle is in the upright position) Hope this helps

Hello,
The belt is broken or badly stretched and needs to be replaced. Here is a link to download a manual.
Look for the "Download Manual" on the right side of page. Scroll down towards bottom of page and you'll see how to open it up to change the belt.
Hope this helps.

Brush does not turn on my vaccum


If there is no suction when you disconnect the beater bar assembly near the hand hold where you grab the vacuum, then there may be either a restriction in the vacuum line between there and the vacuum section (that rolls around behind you), or the vacuum line from the handle point to the rollaround section is not properly connected. This all assumes the vacuum motor in the rollaround is running.

The beater bar section does nothing but cause dirt particles to be sucked into the vacuum system. The vacuum or suction is created in the rollaround unit.
