Having problems with your Miele Red Star Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

Our miele red star(s314i) vacuum was running great and quit suddenly. It had not been running for a very long time and just quit. Newish bag, no clogs in hose and doesn't seem overly hot. the over heated warning light did not come on. I've waited 30 plus minutes to try to restart and no luck. Any ideas

Ok, so if the cord test didn't fix the problem, then it sounds like either the plug has gone bad, or the switch. The plug is a very common problem to go bad, and can be caused by just simply yanking the plug out of the wall, or putting too much tension on the cord while you're vacuuming. Here's a link showing how to replace a plug on your Miele. You may purchase a plug at a Home Depot for very cheap. If this doesn't fix your problem, then it is either going to be the entire cord reel assembly that's gone bad, or the switch. The plug is the easiest, cheapest next best option, so hopefully this is your problem. Here's a link on how to change the plug out;

I just bought kaz model K76P (M) humidifier in Kyoto. I filled it to the right water level (a bit below) and plugged it in (nothing else is plugged in at that socket). The light comes on, but the water doesn't heat up. I can't read Japanese so can't read the instruction manual but it seems a simple procedure: fill with water, set the heating thing the water, plug in. Am I missing something or is the humidifier defect?
