Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My Miele vacuum full bag indicator

\015 It doesn't seem like I'm getting much use out of my vacuum bags, and they're quite expensive. Of course, if I want to lower the suction power to 500-750, then the indicator isn't fully "red," but I've also lost suction power. I have a navy blue carpet, and it shows every speck of lint, so I need the power at 900 to 1100 or I'll be vacuuming over the same spot a dozen times to get everything up. Is there something else I can do to make the suction power high and the bag last longer? Is this something to do with a filter I'm not seeing or that needs changing? \015

Answers :

Check the suction at the vac, without the hose, if it is strong, then you hose is clogged. If it is weak, filters could be the problem, one is the back where the bag sits, the other is on the top, you can see it when you raise the lid.
For a longer lasting bag, try vacuuming up 4-6 sheets of toilet paper. This provides more surface area for the dust to cling to. It may not work on all brands/models, but on many it does.

I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!

I have a miele S712 (2 yrs old worked fine yesterday) - I had been doing some diy work inside and had the vac on just to reduce some of the dust in the air - after a while the vacuum fizzled out.

Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem.

Hi there, I have an excellent Electrolux (but older) Diplomat LX model which stops when the bag is supposedly full. It''s not full however, but merely 1/4 to 1/3 full. I'd like to reduce the "sensitivity" of the sensor or turn it off altogether. I don't run my vacuum with a full bag, but there's a limit. Please tell me how to address this problem. Thanks very much.
