Question about Miele S318 Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Miele S318i worked ok till I took it apart to blow really fine ceiling "popcorn" dust that got sucked by the filters. When I plugged back in started for a milli second and quit. At this point I believe the circuit board might be the fault, but I want to test motor before I go and buy the part. Can I simply run 110 to the two moter contacts to bench test? Steve

I had the same problem. It looks like the seal on the lid on the bottom of the cylinder has fallen out when it was emptied. There is no longer a proper vacuum being created so you don't get the cyclone effect and the dirt doesn't collect where its supposed to. it just clogs up the filter. I put sellotape to seal the lid and it works fine.

Hey Julie,

Hopefully we will get this solved together.

To me, this problem sounds like either the filters are choked up and cannot breathe, OR.... the bagless cannister is not quite sitting in the machine properly.
Honestly, I am more leaning towards the cannister not quite in properly, that is assuming that everything is out of the suction hose.

Start with the process of elimination. Remove and clean the filters with a paint brush or other brush. Get as much dirt and debris off of them as you can and replace them into the machine.
Turn on the machine, and using only the hose attachment, feel if the suction is there. If not, try a re-alignment of the cannister and check the hose. a small coin or marble running through the hose will tell you if there is still a blockage in there.
Where the attachment hose connects to the bottom of the machine could also be blocked up as well. This will also give the same effect of the dirt blowing out the bottom of the machine.

Lastly, it is also quite possible that the belt has stretched or worn out. This too will contribute to it not picking up.
Let me know if this helps, and we will go from there.
Good luck,
Mark

A clogged inlet. Something is likely clogging the opening where the dirt goes in. Paper, cellophane, or anything else light enough to get sucked in but too large to pass through.

you have got dust in the micro switch and it is not latching on, if you look at this and clean it, that will solve your problem, however blowing the motir has probably wrecked the motor bearings.

It sucked up some of the muddy water into the impeller while you was using it. Then it dried out and turned to dust. After you get done using it for wet pickup take a water hose and let a little clean water **** into the impeller, with it off the tub. That will clean it then let it run till dry. That will keep it from getting moldy also. And always put a filter on before using for dry stuff. They make a universal filter that is like a satin bag. That is what I use instead of paper one. Even for water.

Electrical power down while vacuuming (not a reset)


Thank you JonahBegone!
My 4 years old Silver Moon has been power down off and on for a couple of months, but all of sudden it kept doing it. Then the power won't turn on when I plugged it in ( this turns out to be another problem, see my other posting). I took your advice on taking the hose and handle apart. I unscrewed the 5 screws, but can't pull the handle apart to look inside. I was able to see the 3 metal contact on the hose that you mentioned through a 1/4 inch gap when I forced the handle apart. I cleaned the black stuff off through the little gap by rotating the hose a few times. Then magically, my power down problem also went away. Thank you once again.
