Question about Shop Vac Vacuums
Stand in front of the vaccuum with the lable facing you, the 2 release levers are on the left and right sides, attached to the motor housing, which sits atop the tank/canister. Pull out and up on the levers, twist counter-clockwise, lift straight up and the motor housing will follow, leaving the tank/canister on the floor.

Miele S251i Plus Bagged Canister Vacuum
Miele white star canister vacuum - won't turn on,...
I have the above canister vac, which after my son tried to vac the stairs, it rolled down the stairs on him, but still worked, after turned off/on. Then after turned off maybe 10-15 mins., stopped working when we tried the switch. My father in law is our fix it guy, but still having a problem with the switch. Is there a wiring guide we could look at?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You can try to call the factory for the Miele S251i schematics / wiring diagram @ the phone number and website listed below or I put a few pieces of information listed below that might help.
1. The vacuum cleaner switches off automatically
A temperature limiter switches the vacuum cleaner off automatically if it gets too hot. Some models have a warning light (triangle) which comes on to indicate that it has overheated. Allow the appliance to cool down for approx. 30 mins. and remove any blockages to the air path.
2. The "Change dustbag" indicator stays on even when a new bag has been inserted
To ensure the dustbag change indicator gives a correct reading, lift the floor nozzle or power head off the floor slightly to prevent the vacuum created in the suction tube from influencing the reading.
3. The exhaust filter indicator is red
Change the exhaust filter and then press "Reset" to switch off the indicator light.

Well after reading and re-reading my bissell easy vac manual (I had only used the vac twice), I went through all the troubleshooting recommendations. I cleaned out all filters and even though I had only used my hose attachment once, I was shocked that it was completely clogged! I took the whole thing apart and thoroughly cleaned it out according to the manufacturers instructions. It is working beautifully again now, I just take extra care to check it after every use...it can be a hassle, but I find that's what happens when you buy bargain items; you spend less but end up investing more time in upkeep. I hope this helps!! :)

Just a quick clarification please. Will the water not spray in both the attachment hose as well as the floor part? Or does it spray in one or the other. You suspect that it may have a clogged line, is the machine doing anything in particular that makes you think a clog?

Too much water in the unit causes what you describe. Water should be drained and the unit completely dried between water events, or unit will rust and have shortened life.
