Having problems with your Miele S514 Solaris Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

How do i disassemble (i.e. which screws do i pull and which hidden tabs are there) the cord retractor/switch assembly? there is only one screw that appears to hold the piece but it does not come out, Thanks


Answers :

There are 7 torx head screws to remove in the top plastic housing. 5 are in the perimeter and two are "hidden". One is under the power/cord winder panel which pops off in an upward diredtion. and one is under the cloth filter on top of the motor, inside the bag compartment. Take out those 7 and lift the plastic top panel off !

I have a Dyson DC-17 and the top of the cyclone has hair and other debris jammed in the ports. It has 6 six screws holding the parts together and I can only get access to 4 of the screws. The bottom piece appears to be removable, but I can't figure out how to remove it without damaging it. If I can get this piece off, then I have access to the other 2 screws. Can you tell me how to remove the bottom piece? Thanks in advance.


The instructions on how to dis-assemble your DC-17 are somewhat lengthy and it is quite helpful to have pictures and videos handy while you are doing it. Normally I would give the instructions here, but due to the amount of info that is necessary to ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

The hose does not stay connected to the wand although the collar appears to be locked in place for a while. Is there a replacement part for this? Also the holder where the wand goes in has split horizontally. This appears to be one piece with the body of the unit. Is it repairable? It still holds the wand but continues to get worse.

No suction Just received my refurb. dyson animal bagless. Finally figured out how to get it all together, turned it on and there is no suction coming up thru the beater bar. The hair is just collecting around the bar and not going up into the canister. It appears all the suction is going thru the open red end of the attachment hose, which has a vented cover piece. Am I missing a piece or is there a switch to turn of the attachment suction?


So the red hose isn't connected to a part on the vaccum so like it is connected to the connester but not to an opening just above the beater bar, this is the only idea i can supply you with. good luck, maybe i got lucky and helped you out. ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My steam pocket mop seems clogged. Steam does not come out of the mop head. The clog appears to be in the rectangular mop head. The triangular head still works fine. I've tried soaking it in hot water and soaking it with cleaning solutions. They have not worked. If I blow into the connection piece, no air goes through. That's what leads me to believe there is a clog. If you can help, please do. I like the product and haven't been able to use it for awhile because of this. Thanks.


I had the same issue with the rectangular mop and corrected it by disassembling the tube from the rectangular piece.

My bissell powersteamer model 1695 does not spray enough water out. Hardly anything will come out of the handheld attachment either, just a few drips. With the floor unit, it appears the only water coming out is a result of gravity when the control is squeezed. Nothing appears to be plugged up with debrie or deposits. There does not appear to be any kind of drive belt for the pump as it seems to operate off the main vacuum motor. Any ideas?

On-off switch My problem is finding a source for an on-off switch for an electrolux vacuum sweeper model 2100. I have replaced the broken toggle and now the sweeper turns on but only as long as the outside button is depressed. It appears that the on-off switch itself is broken as the switch does not ''hold'' when the toggle is activated. It seems to return to it's ''off'' setting as soon as the toggle is released. What ''holds'' the switch in its ''on'' position? Does it depend only on the on-
