Having problems with your Miele S251 Flamenco II Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

My vacuumcleaner Miele Flamenco II, the powercord doesn't want to go back in. the hole lenght is out and doesn't wind up anymore. what can I do? Thanks Wijnanda


Answers :

Well, First of all, let's make sure that the vacuum still works with the cord in this position?
At least you are not without a vacuum, right?

Now-- Temporarily you will have to do what we used to do before Cord Rewinders were invented, and just coil up the cord, neatly, when you store it.

And next -- getting it repaired:
If you have pulled it all the way to the 'STOP'-- nad the internal catch is not releasing-- try one more firm pull-- if the catch is not releasing, then the cord winder is either jammed, or broken. Either way, someone is going to have to tear into it, and either repair or replace the winder spring, or catch-- Repairs could run $100.-- Are you interested in making that investment?
I will tell you that Meile is a very well made machine, -- and to replace it is going to be MANY hundreds of dollars-- So-- your next decision, is to decide if you want a newer machine, or do you like the old one enough to make this repair investment?

If you want to tear into the re-wind mechanism-- You are going to need a good work bench, tools, and you will be working with a powerful re-wind spring

Let us know if you care to go deeper into this problem.

Yes Mack, I want to tear into it. I have the mechanism out and I can see that the spring end is not attached. what do I do next?

I have a Miele S1721 Powerhouse upright vacuum. When the belt broke I took it into the shop (because when i tried to replace the belt, the tension was so tight I couldn't get it back together!!). When I got it home I DISCOVERED THAT THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT DIDN'T WORK anymore. It seems like it's set really hight, because it no longer contacts and brushes the carpet. So it's now useless. I went back to the shop and the tech denied that there was anything wrong. (I didn't have the vac with me). No

LOSING SUCTION IT APPEARS WHEN IN UPRIGHT POSITION, ALTHOUGH SUCKING (TO SOME DEGREE) IT THROWS BACK SMALL PIECES TO THE BACK OF THE VACUUM OPNTO THE CARPET BEHIND, AND THE CONTAINER HOLDING THE STUFF ISNT WHIRLING AROUND THE CONTAINER.

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind model #uh71009. We moved recently and it was jostled around and the red power switch popped out. I put it back in but it's stuck; it stays either left or right, it doesnt move back and forth. It appears there may be another piece missing from the power switch...all I have is the red switch and a tiny cylindrical metal tube with a spring on one end. This piece fits into the hole on the red switch. Inside the vacuum itself where this goes, there is quite a large cavity
