Having problems with your Miele Filtration Guard S528 Canister Vacuum ?

Power Cord I have a Miele S528 vacuum and it has been acting up lately. I often times have to move the power cable around to get it to work. I am sure it is a loose connection inside the vacuum but I am not sure how to access the inside of the vacuum.

Hi There,

\012This definitely sound like a cord reel issue to me. This is really the \012only problem that I ever see on a Miele vacuum \012 \012 9 times out of 10 the cord reel needs to be changed. If you purchase\012 the cord from us, and it's not the problem you may return it up to 60 \012days later for a full refund, that's how confident I am that is what's \012wrong with your machine. Unfortunately when this begins to happen, it's extremely difficult to fix this problem on the cord reel. It may be better for a short period, but it will continue to get looser, and looser until it finally won't turn on at all. It's really best to just go ahead and replace it at this point.
Ok, so you need to replace the cord reel on a Miele S514 Solaris, no\012 problem! I'll attempt to try and walk you through this repair with a \012detailed explanation of it, and along with some pictures to help \012you. You'll first want to buy the new Miele S500 series cord reel. If \012you haven't already purchased one, here's a direct link to the exact \012cord that's needed for your S514:
Miele Cord Reel For All s500 Series \012#05240304

So\012 once you have the cord reel, you'll need either a Phillips head screw \012driver for the older S514 models, or a T20 Torx Screwdriver for the \012newer S514 model vacuums. The picture below is \012actually of the Miele S518 Cat & Dog series, but for this repair the\012 procedure and parts are identical to the S514. You'll need to remove \012the hose, wand, and power nozzle from \012the vacuum cleaner before you begin.

The\012\012 first thing you'll wand to do is open up the bag housing, and remove \012the vacuum bag, as well as the exhaust filter which may be either the \012Cloth Super Air Clean Filter, or the HEPA Filter cartridge which is blue\012 \012in color. If you're using the Super Air Clean filter, remove the filter,\012 and then remove the bracket that secures the filter in place as well. \012Simply pull straight up on the bracket and it will come out.

Once\012\012 the bag and the filter have been removed, you'll need to take off the \012entire tool lid. While the vacuum cleaner is open so that you can see \012into the compartment where the bag just was, you need to pry two arms \012from the tool lid off of the main body housing. Simply put a screwdriver\012 behind one of the blue arms, and pry inwards. Here's a picture of what \012this looks like;

Once\012\012 you have removed both of these clasps, the tool lid will pull straight \012upwards and off, leaving you with only the bottom part of the canister. \012This is how the vacuum cleaner should look now;

Now\012\012 you'll need to remove the black speed control box from the canister. \012There is one screw in the front of the black speed control box that \012needs to be removed. After the screw has been removed, turn the vacuum \012cleaner around so that the back of the machine where the cord reel goes \012into the vacuum is now facing you. If you look where the black speed \012control box meets the bottom part of the canister, you can see two clips\012 that you'll need to release before the variable speed control box can \012be removed. Simply put a screw driver and push in on the clip while \012lifting the black speed control box at the same time. Here's where the \012clips are located on the vacuum;

Ok,\012\012 now that the speed control box has been removed, it's time to separate \012the colored plastic from the base of the vacuum cleaner. There are 7 \012screws that need to be removed in order to get these housings separated.\012 I have circled the location of each screw in the picture below;

After\012\012 removing all 7 screws, you can then simply pull upwards on the colored \012plastic housing, and remove the housing from the base of the vacuum \012cleaner so that the motor and cord reel are exposed. Once you have \012exposed the cord reel, you'll need to remove the internal wires (white \012wire is in the higher position, and to the left of the lower right side\012 black wire), as well as the rubber hose part. The rubber hose part \012simply pulls off, just like the wire terminals do. After removing these \012parts, you'll need to remove one more screw with your screw driver. \012Here's the picture of which screw needs to be removed;

After\012\012 the final screw has been removed, you'll have to remove the rectangular\012 shaped wire harness that sits at the top of the cord reel. Pay close \012attention to how this wire harness is correctly seated which will save some \012aggravation when putting the vacuum back together. Here's a picture of \012the wire harness that needs to be removed from the old cord reel;

Once\012\012 the wire harness has been completely removed from the old cord reel, \012you may simply pull up on the cord reel and remove it. The new cord reel\012 will come completely assembled, with all the parts and components that\012 your faulty cord reel had. You simply need to line up the screw hole on\012 the new cord reel with the hole in the bottom of the base of the \012vacuum. When installing the new cord reel be very careful that you don't\012 pinch any of the wires down by putting the cord reel on top of them. \012The wires have a specific place they go, and you'll be able to see the \012correct path for these wires when paying close attention. Also remember \012to install the rubber tube back onto the new cord reel as well. Once the\012 new cord reel has been installed, and screwed down, pull the plug out a\012 little ways, and guide the plug through the colored top housing first, \012then screw the 7 screws that hold the upper housing to the lower housing\012 back into to secure these housings together.

That's about all \012there is to that repair! Please feel free to request a repair \012clarification if you have any questions about the repair that I can help\012 you with, I'm always more then happy to help.

I have a Series G Kirby Model G7D. The other day when I was vacuuming all of a sudden the TechDrive (Power Drive Assist N/D) pedal fell off. I see the hole that it goes into but when I put it in it's loose and falls out and doesn't control the power drive anymore. When I shook the vacuum I heard something rattling around inside the vacuum head.

NO POWER My Dyson DCO4 Absolute (purple&lime) won't' switch on. I've checked the plug fuse, wall socket and also filters and hoses on machine all seem fine so think the problem is with the on/off button (maybe loose wire or something) but how do i get to it, is there a special way to remove the green on/off button in order to check the connection? Thankyou in advance for the help i am sure you will be able to provide.

Have Dyson DC 14. When tilt to vacuum, the handle and coiled hose comes away from the unit. The problem started when the little purple ridged curved part on front of vacuum cleaner right below handle came loose and a spring fell out from somewhere--don't know where. I pushed on the purple ridge part and it snapped back on. Now, can't get it loose again, don't know where the spring goes, and handle still comes loose from vacuum.

I'm not positive whether or not this is the wand handle because there are several versions of the DC14. However the device the locks and unlocks the wand in place is pretty similar between all the versions.The first picture is the wand re ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I was getting intermittent power with my miele s558 midsize canister, but it was predicated with me fiddling with the retractable cord to get it to come on and then not move the canister while I was vacuuming.

Hoover Upright Vacuum model U5470-900 - The On/Off switch on the handle does not properly engage the power switch deeper in the handle assembly.
