Question about Vacuums

Open Question

Miele S271i My vacuum refuses to start. Is there a fuse in there somewhere and if so, how do I get into the thing! Sounds silly but I can't find a way into the engine room.

Hello. The problem you are having can be rectified with the new Miele FJM bags.

Also, if you have never taken your machine into a vacuum repair shop for an internal cleaning, please do so. J.

Your vacuum should still be under warranty. If they dealer does not fix it for free call Miele directly.

The vacuum has a standard tube internal fuse. If you are lucky that is all it is. See the site http://www.sannerud.com/house/miele.html for instructions on how to open it up.

hope that helps

Miele upright vacuum makes loud noise and dust comes out at bottom


It sounds to me like one of the hoses is plugged, probably the one that comes from the brushroll. That would make the dust and dirt come back out the front and would not let the vac pick up like normal. Clear the plug and you're machine should start cleaning better again.

MIELE Silver moon turns off after about 10 minutes of using. If I press the "+" button on the handle, it'll turn on again and start up again. Is this an overheat thing or a hose thing?


That sounds like a hose issue, but to make sure it's not an overheat issue I would recommend ensuring that the hose, wand, and dirt tube through the power-head are all clear and free of obstruction. Also try raising the height adjust on your power head: if you have it set too low, air can't move through the carpeting and therefore it will overheat the motor and also not clean as effectively as it could. If all of these things check out, you will have to replace the hose with an SES-125A, but once you've done this you will not have the issue again. Cheers! -R

My Miele Carina Vacuum stopped working. Does it have a fuse that can be replaced that could be at fault here?


although it might have an internal fuse on this model, I dont think that will be the problem.

The miele cord rewinder has been known to have a small fault in it where the cord winder that actually retracts the cord onto will come apart from the electrical connection in the cord winder itself.

As most of these units have a 5 year warranty anyway, I suggest that you take it to your nearest miele dealer for a repair/replacement on the cord rewinder.

Good luck.

My dyson works only without the prefilter


Dyson's are terrible vacuums. Sure they look cool and may work for a couple months but they start to "fall apart" no more than a year. If you have pets, then i suggest you spend the money on a machine that won't break down or give you silly issues like a Dyson would. This vacuum is called a Miele Cat & Dog.
