Having problems with your Miele Vacuums ?

My Miele Twist Vacuum cleaner won't get in the upright position. It stops at about 60 degrees

Answers :

I know this is an old post, but in case it helps anyone newly with this problem... the same thing just happened to my Miele Twist vacuum and I was able to repair it myself.
\012Problem: vacuum fell gently backwards, went into the fully reclined position and it could not be returned to the upright position. The foot pedal that operates the upright/recline position was also permanently depressed and could not be pushed or pulled fully upright.
\012Solution: With the vacuum lying flat and right side up, you will see a slightly rounded, dark grey plastic shield exposed in the swivel neck area. It is this shield that is causing the foot pedal and main body to catch and stopping it from returning to its upright position. This shield needs to be tucked all the way up into the swivel neck until it is flush with the edge of the exterior plastic panel piece that has the logo words "swivel neck" written on it (you might have to jiggle it a little bit, but you'll find it is very loosely placed and you should be able to move it around). Holding it in this fully tucked position with one hand, carefully lift the body back up into the upright position with your other arm and the foot pedal will automatically release back into its upright position when the body clicks back into place.
\012Hope this helps someone!
Mine is also stuck in the 'down' position, and will not return to the upright posistion. The foot lever seems to be stuck down and will not allow the body to return to upright.

Folks, My wife and I own a three-year-old Hoover U6434-900 self-propelled "Wind Tunnel" upright vacuum cleaner. The problem is that, even on the highest setting (front-end as high as possible), it gets bogged-down in even shallow pile carpet to the point that the brush stops. I've cleaned the machine thoroughly, pulling hair, thread, dental floss and such from the brush (and everywhere else), including unscrewing the brush end caps and pulling out the cat hair mats which formed in there.

Check to see if the V belt sits too deep in the brushroll groove, if it sits too deep you will need to replace the brushroll. the top of the belt should be about flush with the brushroll. also you have to take the screws out of the self propelled uni ... Vacuums

I own a Miele S5210 vacuum cleaner which has stopped working. It looks like the dust bag wasn't fitted properly and the machine is very dirty and the filters are completely clogged. I've cleaned it up as best I can and have replaced the filters but it still won't operate. How can I get inside the casing to clean the inner motor compartment? Thanks Tom
