Question about Miele S318 Bagged Canister Vacuum

1 Answer

Miele s234i vacuum

Our vacuum only runs on the high setting. It has a range of 350 - 1000. The vacuum has a dial-up piece to turn the motor to a higher setting. Again, the vacuum only runs on the 1000 setting. Any advice? Hard to fix? approx cost?

Could be the speed control # 01725370 and would sell for close to $100. Or it could be the control # 01741590 and would sell for about $50

Miele vaccum cleaner wont run


If dirt or other debris collect around the armature of the motor the stator will no longer communicate and turn. Usually the brushes wear down and need replacement also. Once you replace the brushes and clean the interior of the motor housing, the motor should start up again. AS long as there is no smell, the motor parts are still in tact. You will also need to replace the belt from the motor spindle to the brush.

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.

Miele 5281 vacuum cleaner permanently on high speed


Most likely the speed control board has failed. The solution for this is to replace the electronic unit unless you know of someone who can diagnose and repair circuit boards. The part is common and easily replaced for around $60. Miele's website can point you in the right direction for a service center, or tell me your zip code and I'll look it up for you.

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.

My miele titan is not turning on when plugged in. i think it might be some sort of clog? but the electric head is working... help!


Wow!, that's not typical of a Miele, especially a new model like the Titan which has been on the market for less than 2 years. If I read this correctly, your power nozzle (electric head) is working, but the main suction motor is not. Thta's usually a sign that the carbon brushes in your suction motor are stuck or too short. Again, not a common problem with Miele. A clog could cause your machine to run hot from reduced airflow and then shut down until it cools, but it would shut the whole machine down, not just the suction motor.
Is your power dial, (located just forward of the main switch and cord retractor buttons) set to minimum? If so, you just might not be getting enough suction. If, after turning the dial to maximum, you still get no suction, then you should definitely take it back to the dealer you bought it from. You have a 7 year motor warranty and a 1 year warranty on all non-wearing components. If you bought your vacuum on the internet then you can go to www.mieleusa.com and search for a local dealer. There is a 'Dealer Locator' link on the left side menu.

Miele s314 red star-motor stopped working-on/off switch broken?


Most likely the problem is with the cord winder. This is the most common problem with Mieles. It is actually the most common problem with any vacuum with a cord winder. A Miele repair center should not change you to look at the vacuum and tell you what is wrong with it. The Red Star was a great model and if the powerhead is still in goood condition I would get the vacuum repaired. If it is the cordwinder they can usually be repaired and it should cost about $75.00. If you need a new cord winder this will cost about $150.00. The top piece can be pryed off, however if it feels like it is switching than it is not jammed.

Miele classic vacuum,wont run, tried pressing restart.Was working fine earlier in day. When cord retracting the 1200 watt setting light on top of vacuum came on for a split second.


Vacuums have a heat activated breaker in them. Is the action end hot? If you get a clog, the motor won't get the air blowing through it and it will overheat causing the breaker to blow. If this is the case, wait (sometimes a few hours) for it to cool while you check for clogs then try it again. Hope this helps!

Miele Mistral S7280 won't run after changing the bag


The Mistral range is the same as the new S7 that's just hit Europe. Have you made sure that when you turn on the vac on the handle that you've switched the carpet mode on? There's a separate button just under the power on button that activates the Carpet setting. Other than that check the sole plate where the roller brush to check for a blockage.
