Having problems with your Vacuums ?
The performance indicator light is red and I have no suction.
If the motor runs, then the problem is usually plugged air passages near the bag/canister or the sweeper head/hose. Remove any hoses/bags/canisters so that you are dealing with only the vacuum producing parts. If it has a sweeper head, remove the bottom plate and clean any visible clogs in the air passages--the same with the area where the debris collects normally. Turn on the motor to see if you are getting air flow through the machine. If nothing, dig deeper into those air passages. Hope this helps!

No suction Hello - any help with this would be much appreciated! I just changed the bag and filters. The machine runs, seems normal, but there is no suction. There is no blockage of the hose, as indicated by the fact that that little viewer window above where the hose connects to the unit is not showing the red portion that it shows when there is something blocking the hose (god, this is hard to describe!). If I disconnect the hose and put my hand over the hole, I feel some suction. But
Well, it actually sounds like there is a blockage. Try removing your hose and dropping something through it, like a quqrter. If it comes through, no clog. If it is clogged, I believe that machine has a blower on the upper part of the cleaner (mayb ... Miele S514 Solaris Electro Plus Vacuum
