Miele just stopped working? - Miele S318 Bagged Canister Vacuum

Answers :

\015\012When a Miele canister just stops working all of a sudden, it's usually a pretty clear indication that either you have a bad cord reel, or a bad switch. I would say that in 60% of Miele repairs that I do with this problem, the cord reel has gone bad.
\015\012One easy thing that you can try to see if the cord is bad, is put one hand on the on/off switch, and the other hand grab the cord (making sure it's fully retracted inside the canister). Now pull the cord out slowly with your one hand, while continously turning the switch on / off, on / off. Keep pressing the switch on and off while pulling on the cord. Usually if the cord reel has gone bad, then you may hear the vacuum attempt to start, or even turn on while you're pulling on the cord. The cord reels in Miele use a metal spring inside that makes connection with the rest of the vacuum. Over time this spring will start to loose it's strength, and eventually will get so bad that it no longer makes contact with the rest of the vacuum. By pulling the cord out slowly and pressing the on / off switch, a lot of the times the spring will make connection somewhere, and the motor may turn on temporarily.
\015\012If this happens, this indicates your cord reel needs to be replaced. I have done a detailed repair here on Fixya on how to replace the cord on a Miele canister vacuum that you may read here;
\015\012If you can't get the vacuum to turn on at all, this can only mean a few things. First the cord reels spring is gone completely, and wont make any connection with the rest of the vacuum, and you'll still need to replace it.
\015\012It also can mean that just the plug that plugs into the wall is bad, is your plug bent, or no longer straight on either prong?
\015\012It can also mean that your motor has gone bad. This however is usually the least likely of all the problems. The Miele motors are almost bullet proof, and typically last 20 years. I can count on one hand the number of Miele motor replacements I've ever done in 10 years of fixing vacuums.
\015\012I can try and help you diagnosis this further if my suggestions didn't help you. Please use the clarification request that you see here on this page to ask me a question. Please just let me know what happened when you tested the cord out as I suggested above. I really hope this was helpful to you.

I'm so happy I came across this website that gave instructions on how to replar the intermittent electrical cord winder problem.
A quick summary: I'm willing to bet $$ that this will solve it for you.:
Fixing the Miele intermittent electrical connection cord winder problem for free
This is by far the most commonly reported problem with the Miele.
The Miele operates intermittently. Jiggling or wiggling the cord makes it turn off and on. Pulling the cord makes it turn off and on. The power switch has no effect, but if you pull or jiggle or wiggle the cord, it works. It all seems very strange, but what has happened is the cord reel develops side-to-side play on the spindle and you need to force the electrical connectors together with some sort of washer or spacer. Stephen used hose washers, which is a great idea. Other Miele owners have used metal washers, or made their own spacers from whatever scrap plastic they had lying around the house.Here is the link to the repair. All the credit goes to the Sannerud Family Home Page...THANK YOU!!
