Having problems with your Miele Vacuums ?

My miele medivac will not turn on when plugged in

Answers :

It could be either the switch, the motor, or the cord reel. Try plugging it in and slowly feeding the cord in and out while clicking the power switch on and off. If the motor kicks on while doing this, you have an intermittent short in the cord reel.
\015\012If you remove the bag chamber lid, (on the s300 series merely opening it until it makes an awful cracking sound, and then lifting it off;) you will be able to access the screws to remove the rear housing. Under the exhaust filter are two screws that will allow you to remove the control unit, and then there are about five screws on the top that will need to be removed if you need to go further.
\015\012The control unit contains the switch, which you can test continuity through by using a VOM. If the switch checks out ok, you can test continuity through the other electrical components on the underside of the control unit. If you find a component that does not have continuity, replace it. If they all appear functional, continue with the disassembly:
\015\012On the s300 series it is easiest to flip the machine upside-down after removing the top screws, and then lifting the base away from the top housing. This will give you access to the motor and the cord reel.
\015\012What can occasionally happen with these cord reels is that they can wear out, allowing too much lateral slop of the actual reel assembly. You can shim this by using something on the axle in the center to push the reel assembly back against the contacts. I use a small rubber "doughnut," but pretty much anything non-conductive will do the trick.
\015\012If this doesn't restore electrical continuity, you'll probably need a new cord reel. I highly recommend against trying to do any further repairs on the cord reel itself, as it's a nightmare to deal with... especially if the main spring comes apart.
\015\012Any other problems will have to be referred to a repair station, since it could then be either the motor or the motor control board.
\015\012Do NOT attempt to test the motor by directly connecting it to wall voltage, as the actual power applied to the motor when it is functioning is stepped down by the circuits attached to it, and attempting to "hotwire" it will fry the motor.
\015\012Hope this helps,

Dead motor? My 8 year old Miele S251i has worked fine, until I was recently vacuuming and moved the plug from one outlet to another. When I restarted the vacuum, it made rrrrr.....rrrrrr....rrrrr noises and smelled like something was burning. I turned it off, and it's shown no signs of life since. Sound like a motor problem? I've taken the cover off and looked at the cord and seen the motor, nothing looks obviously wrong, but I'm also not mechanical.

The last time the vacuum cleaner was used the outlet sparked causing it to smoke when turning on vacuum cleaner. I replaced the outlet and plugged it in and things seemed o.k.

I had plugged it in to use it, turned it on and instantly it made a pop sound, smelled of electrical, and would not turn on after. i even waited for a while let the smell go away and tried a different plug in the house and still no operation of any kind. Is there an internal fuse that i could check on this? where is it located?

Sorry there is no fuse in the vacuum. It sounds like there is a short somewhere when they manufactured it. There is no way to fix yourself you will need to take to a repair shop\015\012\015\012Good luck ... Vacuums

My vacuum just stopped working, so I don't know what the problem is. I used it in the kitchen to vacuum the hard wood floor. I turned it off, and a few minutes later, turned it back on to finish vaccuuming the kitchen floor. It just would not turn on. I had not unplugged it or did anything to it. I then tried to see if it would work in another plug, and no luck. I'm trying to figure out if it can be fixed or if I need to look for a new vacuum.
