Hi Lauren, how do you know if it is the circuit board? (the speed control buttons still work).

Will it power up without the hose attached? If it does then you have a clogged hose. If not, there is a circuit board by the motor that may be bad.

S718 doesn't come up in the Meile parts list, there is a S518, some possibles to check: The switch part #04367102, Indictor lite w/pot. # 05482010, Reel cord 05240302, and motor electronic control # 05408620. Any one of these could be giving you the problem you describe. You will have to dive in and starting with the switch, and eliminate which ever parts seem ok. The reel cord could have bad internal contacts, I have had the pots go bad, but the electronic control more ofter. Which I could pin point it for you.

SOURCE: Miele s571 vacuum cleaner power surges up and down

I just repaired the same problem. It is not the motor. There is a defective capacitor in the regulator. Large grey capacitor should have a value of 0.22uF/275V. It was in my case just 85uF. Changed capaitor and it was OK.

Tip

Miele vacuum cleaner suddenly stops


So this is a problem I identified in Miele's mid size ranged canister cleaners. Not only the S318...

If you go about cleaning on the highest power setting the engine will overheat after 5-10 minutes. It then will need around 20-30 minutes to cool down before you can use it again.

Tip: Don't run the machine on 100% power, instead turn the setting to around 80-90% and then you can enjoy good suction un-interrupted.

Reset switch



There is no reset button it as a Thermal Cut Off



This vacuum cleaner has a special thermostat that protects the cleaner in case of motor overheating. If the cleaner suddenly

shuts off, turn the switch off and unplug the cleaner.

Check the cleaner for a possible source of overheating such as a blocked hose or clogged filters. If these conditions are found, fix

them and wait at least 30 minutes before attempting to use the cleaner. After the 30-minute period, plug the cleaner back in and

turn on the switch. If the cleaner still does not run, then call 1-800-282-2886 for customer assistance

Popped the lid open to change vacuum cleaner bag...now lid won't close. It's stuck at 90 degree angle. Is a button to release it?


Hi bndennis,

Please check the spring on your lid, it may be keeping the door open. Miele vacuum cleaners mainly use a spring concept for keeping lids open - merely pushing it down will lock it at the bottom.

Kind Regards :-)

Why doe this hoover switch off after i start cleaning for about two minutes


You have to check the power switch button because it is mostly used part in the vacuum. A loose connection will occur and the power will shut off if that happened. Also clean the motor, if it is full of dirt you'll be sure motor will easily overheated caused it to premature shut down.
Good luck.

After from ten to fifteen minutes of use it automatically shuts down but will sstart up again after fifteen minutes.


It sounds as if the motor has overheated at some point and damaged the thermal protector in the motor. Be sure all the filters are clean before operating the vacuum. If it continues to shut down, the thermal protector will need to be replaced. ( Part # 28382093 ) This is a very common problem with bagless vacuums, if the main filter is not cleaned after every vacuuming.
