You need to have the wiring checked in the handle. Either the switch or wires going to the heater are bad or shorting to something they shouldn't.

Bounced down a step while on, blew house circuit breaker, now s548 only powers on when on its side


Rickhan,
I would recommend taking it to a Miele dealer and let them repair it. It can get rather tricky trying to put those back together. I speak from experience and I work at a Miele dealer and I leave them for the other repair tech.

You probably just have a circuit breaker that's become weak or is overloaded running other things as well as your machine. Have you tried an outlet powered by a different breaker? Also, if you're using an extension cord it will raise the resistance and the current draw.

Vacuum just quit, while in use


If the Power from the wall receptacle was OK, and you did not trip a circuit breaker, then the motor may have shut down or the on/off switch broke. Usually your house power would go out if a short circuit occurred while plugged into the house current. Check all wires, and smell the housing for any burn odor. Look at the brush for accumulated matter that collected and stopped the motor and brush from moving. Clean if necessary.

Overheated - won't turn on


I would recommend bringing your vacuum to a local service center. You most likely will not be able to diagnose that problem online.

My Bissell liftoff Revolution won't turn on. Is


Vacuums are not usually fused, but may have a circuit breaker--look for a small protruding button that when pressed, resets the breaker. The plug on the end of the cord may have a wire broken within the plug--replace it with one from a hardware or home center. Another common problem is the power switch may have failed. Order a new one from an appliance parts house. Good luck!

I have a Hoover Windtunnel model U5462. Plugged in, turned on, it popped and then no power at all. Not circuit breaker in house. Does the unit have a fuse or something similar?


does it have a headlight and does it work? if so then unplug the vacuum and turn the brushroller by hand a few times.then plug it back in,if it works then your motor might be bad.you can try to spray a little wd40 into the switch then.work the switch back and forth a few times first to get the lubricant worked in to the switch .try to turn it on now.see if you have any cuts in the cord.also see if the cord is pulled out of the vacuum .if so you might have a wire unplugged inside the base of the vacuum

Bissell 6900 stopped working how do I open the thing?


Bissell 6900 Digipro ON OFF Power Switch failed. I found the wire connectors for the power switch were corroded. I fixed this by soldering the wires directly to the terminals leading to the motor. To access the circuit board and the on.off power switch I pryed off the cover for the on /off power switch and the cover for the cord retraction leaver. The covers are held on by two tabs that extend under the red cover on the top of the vacuum. Push the switch cover away from the red cover while prying the cover upwards, You may damage the two tabs on the switch cover, as I did, but afterwards, the cover went back in place and appears to work okay. WARNING: This is a home made repair of a 120 VAC circuit. If you are un qualifued to do this repair you face serious risk of a faulty solder and fire inside the vaccuum cleaner. 4fd9446.jpg78baa14.jpg
