Having problems with your Miele S548 Bagged Canister Vacuum ?

Power to power carpet head

\015 I had trouble with this Miele vac starting, it would try to come on when the rewind would move; I took it apart found the electrical connections inside the rewind to be dirty and not making good contact because what seemed to be too much end play at the rewind axle, put a washer there, cleaned the copper rotary electrical connections and it seemed to do the job; So I put the unit back together and my wife informed that the carpet beater would not come on. So I take it apart and look to see if something was left unconnected, did not find anything that looked obvious. I checked to see if it was sending 110 volts to the connection where the vac hand held hose plugs into the cannister, no voltage; it had continunity from where the hand held hose connection plugs into the vac all the way back to the connections inside the motor compartment, it was good. Also I checked that the cover safety lockout was going into its socket to make a connection, was OK. Could I have got some wires switched inside where the rewind electrical connections are, is there a schematic to show me something on wiring detail or did something short out that feeds 110 volts to the power head unit. Do you have some advice where I may need to check next or what parts I need to check.....My wife is having a fit......................Thanks......Ronnie.......\015

Answers :

Once again remove the electrical connections and clean it and also blow the dirt and then fit it tightly and carefully.if anything broken inside replace it.
It sounds like the spring on the cord reel let go. difficult to reinstall. it may have been broken already and that is why it came off. it is rather meticulous trying to work on a cord reel. many can't be disassembled without breaking

The brush wouldn't work when the selector switch was in carpet mode. Took the power head apart and removed the motor. Everything o.k. in the power head. Checked and found that the neutural wire had pulled out of the connector, the connector was never crimped at the factory. What a day! Took 2 hours and a large pizza to get it done. Neutral wire was in the hose just below the handle. Reconnected the wire and crimped it, put everything back together. It works!!!!

My dyson vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to have the same suction power it used to. I have cleaned out the canister and have taken apart the vacuum head (for cleaning carpets) and it doesn't seem to be blocked but it seems to lose suction by the time it reaches the head.

Hi, I have a canister Kenmore vacuum with power head. Everytime I use it, it smells sour. Its strong and like FEET with bad odor.
