Miele 5088 warming drawer will not close
Thought I would comment in case others have this problem. Our series 5 has the exact same problem. It's caused by deterioration in the function of the gas spring that operates the soft-close, self-closing mechanism. The mechanism ends up in its closed position with the drawer open and prevents proper closure of the drawer. The sensor prevents the element from coming on. You can remove the drawer and flick the mechanism to its open position, but the problem will recur and a new gas spring is the long term solution.
We Have a Miele Paragon plus w3830, anyone know how to replace the belt please?
The back panel is held on by screws. There should be four screws along the top of the panel, two near the bottom corners, and one in the center near the bottom. Once these screws are removed, the panel should come off easily. The belt is located under the panel, and can be replaced by following the instructions in your owner's manual. If you don't have your manual, you can usually find it online by searching for your model number. Hope this helps!
