Ok, that's usually directly related to the cord reel's contacts separating. I actually just posted this fix as a response to another thread, but here it is:\015\012 \015\012It is not generally necessary to replace the entire cord reel, although occasionally it is.

Here's the quick and easy DIY way to make your cord reel work again: you will need a #2 phillips head screwdriver, any flat head screwdriver, a pair of scissors, and a zip-tie.

First, remove the bag compartment lid by gently prying the hinge parts inward with the flathead screwdriver until you can lift it free. Remove bag and exhaust filter, and then remove the two screws holding the rear control panel on. Lift the front of the control panel upward until you hear a horrible unpleasant crunching noise. You didn't break it.

Lift that free, and remove all screws from the top of the main housing. (I believe there are 6 or so... but I can't remember off the top of my head.) The housing should then lift free.

You should now be able to see your cord reel. see if it wiggles back and forth along the central axle. If it does, you'll want to place the zip tie around the side of the axle which is away from the large round copper contacts which look almost like leaf springs. This will ensure that the contacts make electrical contact again. Cut off the excess zip-tie.

When putting the parts all back together, it is essentially a reverse of the disassembly, but be sure that you thread the cord through the hole in the back of the housing before you attempt to screw the housing down, or you will be very sad; both because you'll have to disassemble it again, and because you'll probably jack up your cord and have to replace the reel, which is what we're trying to avoid.

Test machine. If it works: party. If not, you will have to replace the cord reel.

For further clarification on the process, contact me.

Good luck,

Miele vacuum Sometimes when I hit the auto roll up cord button or even move the cord, the power vacuum goes off. I move the cord again and it comes back on. I took it apart and looked at the connection from the cord to the auto roller. These are the electrical slip on type connections and are still in good shape. There are no bends in the cord. I air dusted everthing inside, put it together (with no extra parts!). Good news..it powered up so I did not break it, but it still has the same problem.

Miele S5000 (revolution 5000) vacuum cleaner - How do I open the casing? When the power button on the handle is pressed the green power-level lights on the handle light, but the motor sounds like it gives a little 'jump' but nothing more. The orange power light on the body also dims. I assume the motor or fan is jammed, but I can't open the body to find out. I've taken out to screws inside near either end of the handle, but to no apparent effect. I'm assuming the body is held together by plastic

Power Issue Hi...my Miele vacuum cleaner (S314) will not turn on, unless I lean it on its side (the side that the power switch is on). I took it apart and the wires are all well attached, and I do not see any issues with the connectors. Is this a common problem with an easy fix? Thanks! Todd

Electrolux twin clean vacuum cleaner. After 5 minutes it keeps of thinking the filters need cleaning (and they don't). I re charge the power, and all seems fine and then it goes back to wanting the filters cleaned. The suction is also not working to full capacity.

Because the suction is not working fully it feels that the bags must be full and the air cannot be pulled through the bags. It could be due to 1) bags not being of correct quality. The air has to pass through them to allow all the dust to reach there ... Vacuums
