Question about Miele Vacuums

Miele Deluxe 5247i Air Clean Plus Canniter

The hose is clogged. No one is admitting to clogging it so I don't know what is up there. I tried a coat hangar but it wouldn't go far enough and the attachment at the end of the hose is angled. Can the end attachments be taken off? Any suggestions?

Most vacuum hoses are made so you screw off the end attachment not real familiar with your model but pretty sure you can do that then just disattatch from canister and run broom handle through it hope this helps

No you have a clog in the hose, wand or at the power head. Remove the hose wand and power head from the the vacuum. Turn on the vacuum, put the palm of your hand over the hole in front, you should feel plunty of suction. Then replace just the hose and put the palm of your hand over the end of the hose. If you do not have suction the clog is in the hose. You can try putting the hose on the blower port to blow out the clog or use the wire from a coat hanger. If you have suction, then add just the wand and repeat. If you have suction, then the clog is in the neck of power head, you will have to use a coat hanger to clear it.

sounds like you have a clog in your hose, full bag, or dirty filters. take the bag door off and feel inside at the bottom for suction or air movement. if you have suction there chances are its a clog in the hose. You can use a coat hanger or something similar to reach into the hose just be careful not to puncture the hose. First just try turning the unit on and stretching the hose as far as you can. try to feel for a clog and try to free it with the hose stretched.

35922, sounds like there is a clog , have cleared hoses, put new bag in loss of suction, still hear loud clogged noise near rear vent hole


Try putting the vacuum hose end into vent hole while running. That may dislodge the clog. Otherwise, you will need to disassemble the machine far enough to get to the clog area.

I have a clogged hose. How can I take it apart to get the clog out? or what can i stick up it to get it out?


Most vacuum cleaner hoses can be unplugged at some point. One way to clear a clog is to reverse the hose & let the vacuum **** the clog out the way it went in. If you have to remove the clog manually, a length of coat hanger wire, with a small hook bent on one end, will serve. Most clogs are near the hose ends, so not much wire length is required.

It's October now so this is probably too late to be useful for you but it might help someone: I had the same problem. I used a bright light to see that there was a clog up high in one of the plastic tubes on the side. Using an untwisted wire coat hanger I went up through the flap on the bottom of the vacuum. I pushed the cork screw end of the coat hangar up the tube and twisted it then pulled it out. It took three times to remove the clog completely but it worked. A plumber's snake might work even better.

Model 116 hose clog?

Model 116 hose clog?
Posted by rfrazelle on Jun 23, 2008
My old canister model 116 followed with numbers 2839580 marked Kenmore 3.9 with power-mate, worked fine until the bag got overly full. I have changed the bag, cleaned the filter, and removed a nasty hair/fur/dust clog :-p from the lower metal tube of the power mate. It now has very weak suction and won't pick up anything. I suspect a clog in the grey plastic flexible tubing attached to the canister but cannot get it apart. Advice?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Kenmore 22313 Bagged Canister Vacuum. The best way to find a clog in an electric hose is to use a steel ball or a large marble to place inside the hose and to let it so threw as far as it can to determine where the hose clog is. Once you have determined where the hose clog is then you can use a small end of a broom handle of take an old wire coat hanger and place a hook on the end and try to pull the clog out of the electric hose – the electric hose is very expensive so try not to damage the hose in any way, shape or form. Or another way is that id you have another canister vacuum you can try to pull the clog apart by using two vacuums turned on and running. If you are successful then run the round marble or steel ball thru the hose again and the clog should be cleared.

Clogged vacuum hose, new carpet, have been through two vacuums already.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. When vacuuming it is a good idea to give your vacuum a burst of air once in a while to clear the hose and push the dust and dirt into the bag, simply just lift up on the powerhead or vacuum hose and give it a burst of air every 5 or 10 minutes. Also, we you like to know the brand name and model # of the vacuum. Some of the ways are to use a round metal ball or marble to see where the clog is in the hose and then you can use such things as the end of a broom handle, or you can use a wire coat hanger and bend the end to make a little hook and then try to grab the clog and say fish it out – or if you have another canister or shop vac you can tune on both canisters and try to pull the clog apart and sometimes that works as well – just be careful so that you do not puncture the electric hose because they are expensive in the area of $100.00 or more in some cases. If you need further assistance please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Hoover eite rewind vacuum has blocked airflow, how do i fix?


Is there suction at the end of the hose, if not then the blockage is in the hose, unhook the hose and dig out the debris, if hose isn't blocked, then clean out the filters, if they get clogged, then air can;t flow thru them and you won't have suction. If you have suction at the end of the hose, then it is clogged down in the nozzle asm. there is an inlet by the brush roll and it comes up to where the hose plugs into. Clean the clog out.

Not enough suction for Panasonic MC-V5716 upright


Probably not the motor protector, its function is shut off the motor if it overheats. Most likely you have a clog or partial clog in the inlet down by the brush roll, or it is in the hose. But if the motor is running, and suction is low, with no clogs, then maybe the motor is running at a slower speed and will have to be replaced.
