Having problems with your Miele Vacuums ?
I have Miele Polaris vacuum, one or two years old
It will not turn on

If you are lucky the cord may be broken on the vacuum and it's not the motor which is burnt out.

I have a Kirby G4 Vacuum Cleaner - MOdel G4 D. I have never had any problems or repairs done to it in the past ten plus years that I've had it. This is an upright vacuum. I was vacuuming the carpet floor and was not having any trouble at all. I switched the vacuum off and moved it into a different room. When I tried to turn on the vacuum, it would not turn on. I checked with different outlets, used both front attachment and hose attachment. Checked the front part of the motor/ spiral case. This

I have a miele S4210 vacuum. It has a SAB100 accu nova battery brush which will not work. After charging the battery, light comes on saying not charged and now the power head brush won't turn. I had problems with my first powerhead so I purchased another and it worked for a short time and now I have the same problem again. I have four batteries I use interchangeably but nothing seems to work. I spent a fortune on this vacuum and to tell you the truth I hate it! Contacted Miele after 1st year of

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.

I purchased a Eureka C4910 last year and have a question that I am hoping you can answer. There are two motor actions with this vacuum, 1) the vacuum suction, and 2) the beater bar. The action of the beater bar is that motor is supposed to automatically shut off when the handle is in the complete vertical position assuming the vacuum is stationary, but then turn on when the handle is tilted toward the floor, assuming the vacuum is moving back and forth. The beater bar motor turn-on mechan

I have a dyson canniter stow away vacuum. i've had it for 2 years and it just started having a problem. when i turn it on the motor starts just fine but the vacuum head does not turn on. Yet when i push it forward it trys to start and turns on for a second and turn off - almost like the connector isn't connecting the hose to the head very well anymore.
Hi, After reading you're problem, the symptom's are just like you said. Its just a matter of checking the connections. The connection where it plugs into the head it self. When you push forward the forward motion and down pressure makes ... Dyson "Stowaway" Canister Vacuum Vacuum
I was vacuuming with an attachment, the vacuum began to loose suction and the hose collapsed, then the vacuum stopped running. I have turned it off and continue to plug it in off and on, using different plugs. It will not turn back on.

Over heating Light Comes on as soon as I try to turn the unit on. I have a Miele S558 Silver Moon vacuum that has only been used once and it shut off and will not come back on. The overheating light comes on as soon as I try to switch speeds on the handle or turn the unit on at the canister, and the vacuum will not run. Do you have any idea what the problem is?

The vacuum won't start. I used it for about an hour and then turned it off and when I went to turn it back on ..there was no response. I cleaned every compartment on the machine and it's still not working. I also tried using a different outlet in the house. I've waited 24 hours thinking maybe it might have been just the vacuum over heating, but it's still not working.
I had the same problem and after removing the large round filter and cleaning it, (waiting 12 hrs to dry) it started.... ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Hi. I borrowed my friend's Hoover VC340 to clean my house.

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing

I have a Simplicity S24 canister vacuum. It's about 3 yrs. old. In the past year I have had it in the shop 4 times because when using the rug piece, the piece turns on & off, on & off. The actual vacuum doesn't... just the rug piece. I recently spent $65 on a new part, after spending countless dollars the other 3 times it was in the shop for this problem. I'm ready to buy another name vacuum altogether as I feel this vacuum is not worth the money that was spent on it. I'm very frustrated.
Repair shop has not fixed the problem? complain until they fix it properly. This is a pressure fault / jamming issue or slipping drive. Repair shop should have fixed it 1st time. ... Vacuums
My Shop Vac (Brand) Mdl#934-16-11 keeps shutting off while I'm dry vacuuming. I can turn it back on then it will shut off again. The filter is spotless, so that's not the issue. There isn't any reset buttons. The only thing I can think of is that the float for wet vacuuming is somehow being sucked up causing the the motor to be tripped off. The vacuum is only about a year and a half old and used only sparingly. Help!
Engine troubles I have a 1975 4x4 GMC full size van. The motor is a 350 cid small block on propane. The thing hadn't been running in 5 years and when I tuned it up I changed vacuum advance pod on HEI distributor and hooked to a better vacuum and now the hotter it gets the faster it idols and when I try and turn the timing back, it starts hard. Wondering if vacuum is too strong or what is up?
I haven't fixed it yet but I think I might have a solution for it. From the factory this thing had a 4 barrel carb and they put an equivalent size atomizer in it for the propane and over the years someone omitted the EGR system in it and propane is a ... Vacuums
Hi, I have had my Dyson DC07 Animal vacuum for 5 years. Recently, it turns off by itself while vacuuming. Perhaps it is overheating. But this does not seem normal. It is not being used as an industrial vacuum, just in my home.

My Kenmore Handi-Mate Jr., Model # 116.36622501 generates a burning smell once i turn it on. It is out of warranty. There is any way i can look at the vacuum myself and figure out what is broken/burned and understand if it is worth fixing it? It vacuumed very nicely for about 2 years and it wasn't a cheap vacuum. Thank you very very much.

Kenmore 21875 One day it's working fine. Next day, it won't turn on. When I attach the hose to another vacuum cleaner, it runs. Is there a reset button on the canister? Could it be the receptacle is bad? My Kenmore Progressive won't turn on today either -but was fine last week. I cleaned the filters checked for blocked air, tried a different outlet and no luck. I'll check the pins on the connections and see if one of them is not matching up or appears worn.

I have had my Bissell Healthy Home for just over a year. I use it once or twice a week on five area rugs and two small bedrooms with wall to wall carpet. Just recently, the motor started to sound extremely loud and it smells like it's burning. The vacuum still picks up everything and all the brushes are turning. Advice? I really like this vacuum and would really like to fix it rather than replace it!

The vacuum does not turn on when plugged in. - Miele Vacuums
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. ... Miele Vacuums
Hello, I didn't notice that the bag on my miele was full and kept vacuuming until the vacuum turned itself off (died). Have I done irreparable damage to the motor, or will it work again once it has cooled off? Thanks.
Permanent damage is extremely unlikely. It should work just fine when it has cooled off. ... Miele S318 Bagged Canister Vacuum
The belt broke and after putting on new belt I dicscovered the cylinder with the brushes attached wasn't turning. After I finally got the cylinder to turn it makes a very very loud noise and also now it doesn't pick up the dirt. The vacuum is less than a year old.
Check the cylinder with brushes does not have hair or carpet fibers causing it to bind. With the belt removed the brush should turn freely and fairly easy. The original belt probably broke because of this. You may have to fully dis-assemble the head ... Dirt Devil Vacuums
