Accessing motor Miele Flamenco II

Hello, Read your previous posting. My vac stopped working. I am trying to get a look inside to see if the cord is detached or if motor is dead. Do I need to remove the top ( red) cover? The foot control panel (black) is already off. I am worried about breaking the hinges and popping those little springs? Thank you.

I had the same thing happen to my S251. Open up the vac. There is a third hidden screw in the groove where the accessory door is hinged. It's really well hidden, use a flashlight. Once its open, you'll have access to the power cord and you can test its conductivity. I didn't really believe it could be something as pedestrian as that, but the retractable power cord takes a lot of abuse, and eventually it fails. Replaced mine and the vac works great.

My miele flamenco II vacuum cleaner motor makes a loud grinding noise what's wrong with the motor?


Hello Louis Casado,

Most of these motors make noise because the bearings have gone bad and need replacing...
(loss of lubricant or other-than-round ball bearings).

Alternatively... the rotor brushes have picked up something that is clashing with the housing... and needs to be resolved.

Clean it all... really good & run it without a load...

If all else fails to remedy your situation... pull the beater brush and cut everything but the fixed bristle rotor brush... clean it... cut it free... check out all clearances... and return it to service

Hope this helps!

Happy hunting!

My vacuumcleaner Miele Flamenco II, the powercord doesn't want to go back in. the hole lenght is out and doesn't wind up anymore. what can I do? Thanks Wijnanda


Well, First of all, let's make sure that the vacuum still works with the cord in this position?
At least you are not without a vacuum, right?

Now-- Temporarily you will have to do what we used to do before Cord Rewinders were invented, and just coil up the cord, neatly, when you store it.

And next -- getting it repaired:
If you have pulled it all the way to the 'STOP'-- nad the internal catch is not releasing-- try one more firm pull-- if the catch is not releasing, then the cord winder is either jammed, or broken. Either way, someone is going to have to tear into it, and either repair or replace the winder spring, or catch-- Repairs could run $100.-- Are you interested in making that investment?
I will tell you that Meile is a very well made machine, -- and to replace it is going to be MANY hundreds of dollars-- So-- your next decision, is to decide if you want a newer machine, or do you like the old one enough to make this repair investment?

If you want to tear into the re-wind mechanism-- You are going to need a good work bench, tools, and you will be working with a powerful re-wind spring

Let us know if you care to go deeper into this problem.

Describe how to change power cord


Before changing the entire power cord, be certain that it is not only the plug that is not working. It is very common for the wire to break inside the insulation at the connection to the plug from flexing and bending. You can tell by plugging the vacuum in, turning it on and bending the wire at or near where it connects with the plug. If the machine stops or starts, it is probably the plug. They are available at Home Depot or Lowes or a local hardware store.
To replace the cord, you have to open the housing where the wire enters, find the end of the wire where it connects to the terminals in the vacuum and remove and install a new wire, maintaining the wire color to all connections.

Am attempting to get 'inside' the vacuum to troubleshoot why it suddenly stopped running. Suspect it may electrical, and have already checked the obvious (visible cord and plug.) However, there doesn't...


Hi There,

Here's a link to a repair solution that I've done explaining how to diagnosis the cord reel, and open up the machine. The model this is done on is not the same exact model as yours, but the repair will be almost identical. Usually when this happens all of a sudden, chance are good that you need to replace your cord reel. Due to a request by the manufacturer we are no longer allowed to sell the cord reel online, however if you need to obtain one, just give us a call and we'll be happy to provide one for you. Hope this was helpful! If it was, please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave some feedback for me.

Stopped working - warning light on


There is an electronic circuit board on the motor that may have gone bad and will have to replaced, part # 06836740 and sells for around $75.00, for model S516. But if this a S316, then it could be the speed control mounted on the motor, Part # 04416342 and sells for around $83.00. Both of these models are Cat Naad Dog so you need the model number berfore you order a part.
