Having problems with your Miele S514 Solaris Bagged Canister Vacuum ?
Vacuum not running; do I have to replace the cord winder or just cord?
\015 My Miele Solaris won't run. When I took it to the vacuum store, they said the cord winder needed to be replaced since the wires were burnt/shorted. The cord winder works so why can't they replace the cord?\015
Typically, the cord and winder are supplied as a unit. It is possible to fit new cord to an existing winder, but the amount of labour involved will make the job more expensive than simply exchanging the complete unit. Even if you're going to do the job yourself, it's simply not worth planning to just fit new cable (unless you are a masochist with unlimited time and patience). Pay that bit extra for a complete unit - you'll be glad you did (or you'll be sorry if you don't!).

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,
