Having problems with your Miele S514 Solaris Turbo Plus Vacuum ?
Power head stopped working
could it be the switch?
could it be the motor?
The electric hose may have broken cable inside. It happened to my henry hound (near the handle). I did fixed this because new hose pipe is quite expensive but it kept breaking... I am fed up with fixing this. why Turbo Electric Hose for HENRY HOUND HHR200 cost 1/3 of the price of new Henry Hound???!!! :-(
If its an electric head switch it off and remove the screws underneath or if it has a slide out cartridge check that the brush isn't clogged with dust. Sometimes the toothed belt can come undone if there's an obstruction.

For some reason, our shark steam mop stop working. Usually after I plug the steam mop, the power light would light up then you would hear & see steam coming out of the mop's head but all of a sudden no power light would go on and no steam would come out. I can still use the mop, cause water from the tank still is able to flow down to the head. It's just that I'd have to use it like an ordinary mop not as the steam mop I liked. Pls help!!!
