You were right! Sure enough my problem was not a sock but a weird dried fig solid as a rock forming an obstruction that eventually enough lint built up that it formed a complete and total blockage. The fig was so tough that it almost pierced the hose. I went after it with a wire chase and once I noticed that it was about to pierce the hose in one place I managed to dislodge it with a counter twisting motion. Vacume on - Wooosh - Power and suction once again. Thanks I was about to go buy a new vacume!

There is most likely an obstruction somewhere in the system that is not obvious to you. Please inspect all hoses. I have seen a sock in a vacuum line before, it caused these same symptoms.

Loss of suction after vacuuming up and removing a piece of paper


Hi. The hollow noise and lack of suction suggests there is still air flow restriction. Start from the furthest point and work back towards the motor. Pull the hose off at the machine. Has high suction returned to normal? If not, open the canister and expose the filter bag. Remove the filter bag and check for a blockage or is the bag full? If the bag is not full and there is no blockage inside the inlet tube. Leave the hose and the filter bag removed, close up the canister vacuum and turn it on. Has high suction returned to normal? If not, there is probably a secondary filter or HEPA filter that needs to be replaced. I hope this helps. Please let me know what you found. Good Luck.

Remove the filter / bag from the compartment, close the cover and briefly turn on the vacuum - is there suction? If so, check that the bag isn't already full / or replace with a new bag. Make sure it the bag is not being pinched / caught under the cover.

If no suction, look closely at the edge of the filter / bag compartment opening of the vacuum. There should be a gasket that the cover presses against to help ensure a good seal. If this gasket is missing, cut, has an object lodged on it or is otherwise damaged - it may be preventing proper sealing of the door; allowing air to be pulled through the gap in the seal - and responsible for the loss of suction at the hose.

Dust bag was full and have changed it but not getting proper suction since bag change - why?


The extension tube is probably blocked. Check for suction with all the tubes off - if there is suction now then the tubes are blocked - be carefull not to damage them if you poke things in the unblock them.

Full bag system works properly, but doesn't reset easily


Either there is something wrong with your switch. Which it doesnt sound like it. Take it to your dealer or call another one it sounds like the control valve needs to be replaced. I am a dealer 1-866-966-9350.

Miele vacuum cleaner not working properly


Is the suction low or ok at the vacuum without the hose attached? If it is ok, then there is a clog in the hose. If it isn't, then check filters, is the speed variable, is the contol set too low. Could be a bad motor, running too slow.

No suction


1, Does the blower (discharge) side blow bunches of air??
Yes: Something is clogged from the bag to the hose end. Try blowing out the hose from the discharge side.
Or: The bag is not properly seated. Make sure that the plastic piece is properly inserted into the bag, and properly aligned and locked in place with the suction intake.
No: Something is wrong in the motor/fan assembly.
2: The hose has a plastic cover on the end farthest from the unit. Make sure that this cover is closed. If it is open, your suction will go way down.
