Hi,
Did you check the belts that go around the end of the brushes?

There is a service panel that remove with a coin. It is located at the rear, bottom of the vacuum.

The star shaped screws you mentioned are Torx screws. You can get a set of torx drivers at any hardware or home improvement store.

Hope this helps, if it does, please place a vote for me.

Good luck,

Handie Andie

It is not sucking at all


So your machine sucks :>) Sorry I couldn't resist.

Remove the bag. Turn the machine over and remove the base plate. At one side of the brush towards the back, you will see the hole that all the fluff goes through, to the motor and then onwards and upwards to the bag. That is where your blockage will be. If you can get it all your can make a little hook from a wire hanger. You can also put the machine outside and run it without the bag. This creates a lot more force and will often dislodge blockages. Remove as much as you can first though.

How do I replace the drive belt


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Changing your belt is crucial in keeping your unit running efficiently. It is recommended for belts to be replaced every 6 months.

To get access to your unit's belt, your floor base should have two plastic screws that will allow you to remove the roller brush casing. After removing the casing, you will be able to see your roller brush, now it's a good chance to, with a pair of scissors, cut any tangled hair strands or left over debris that is tangled in your roller brush. There are also four more screws that need to be removed to get access to the belt and the clutch assembly.

The roller brush clips in onto the floor base with one clip on each side, you can gently but easily unclip it. Remove the cover on top of the belt and the bearings with a screwdriver, remove the bearing end caps to reveal your unit's belt to be replaced.

Miele seb 213 quit spinning on rug


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first let's focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

Miele power nozzle quits after 10 seconds of working.


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gifbecause it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar.

Miele SEB-213 powerbrush stopped working


Pull the head cover off to check the belt, if the belt is ok then it might be the power connection between the handle and the power head shaft. If the red light is on the power head, then its not the connection
because its getting power. Now some heads have a reset button on them,you could check this also.
With the cover off the power head, remove the belt, now turn it on, and be careful, but try to make the motor shaft spin,with one finger, because if it does start to spin you do not want to hurt your finger.

If the motor starts to spin,put the belt back on, if it does not spin again, the motor is too weak.
If it does not spin at all, the motor is bad.Hope this helps you,and you get it working.

Miele White Star SEB 204, powerhead stopped spinning. brushes are clear of debris, belt (#3854940) is not broken. Could belt be stretched so that brush head does not spin?


Yes, most likely the belt has stretch. Flat belts do this after a short time and need to be replaced when problems start with the brush roll not wanting to turn. Also check the brush roll, make sure that the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also.
