Having problems with your Miele s558 Silver Moon Vacuum ?

Miele s558 Silver Moon

\015 I have a short in the retractable power cord. Is it an easy DIY fix?\015

Answers :

It is not generally necessary to replace the entire cord reel, although occasionally it is.
\015\012
\015\012Here'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.
\015\012
\015\012First, 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.
\015\012
\015\012Lift 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.
\015\012
\015\012You 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.
\015\012
\015\012When 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.
\015\012
\015\012Test machine. If it works: party. If not, you will have to replace the cord reel.
\015\012
\015\012For further clarification on the process, contact me.

\015\012Good luck,

Mine had the same prob. till it stopped working entirely
so i took mine apart, figured i had nothing to loose
the entire cord assembly needs to be replaced
check on the net to find the proper replacement part
i found one at moz-screenshot.jpgvacuums24x7.com
have not replaced it yet but thought it was worth the ~$130 try
still cheaper than a new miele or a repair bill
keeping my fingers crossed

good luck
