I have a Miele Vacuum cleaner MedicAir 5000 Plus. Recently the Dust Bag Indicator bar is full during normal cleaning and consequently the suction power is much less. I replaced the dust bag, engine pre-filter and Hepa filter but no change. When i remove the hose, the Indicator is normal, but when i attach the hose, wand, head, the indicator is full. I checked the hose, wand, head but can't see any blockage and when i blow with my mouth it seems fine. Can anybody help? thanks!

My vacuum (miele s251i) will not turn on. I just changed the filters and bag. Just wondering if I have put the top filter in the wrong spot. Does it go under the black flip-up bit or on top of it? I do not have a manual. Thankyou in advance for your help and time.

My Miele White Star Model # S3141 was running fine, then stopped mid-vacuuming. I changed the bag and cleaned the filters (which were dirty), let it cool off, and tried to start it up again, but no luck. What do I do now? Are there any repair places in Ft. Myers, FL?? Thank you for your help.

My electrolux oxygen cannister has the "bag change" light on when there is a new bag. The light stays on when the suction power is high (to pick up small particles) and it won't pick up, but the ight goes off when the suction power is low (to pick up big objects). I changed the hepa filter, cleaned the motor filter and changed bags, but all that didn't help.
You may have a clog in the hose, and/or the inlet by the brush roll. A clog will turn on that light as well as a full bag. ... Vacuums
Miele cat and dog filter problem. Miele told me when it pops up this means it needs changing. It was changed two weeks ago and has popped up again. This can't be right.

I have a Z345 Electrolux cylinder vacuum cleaner, from the 1970s probably, but not used much. I have lost the guide. I forgot to change the bag before it was full. Smoke started to come out - smelling of burnt paper, not rubber. So switched off. It did not blow the fuse, and may be OK. I wish to inspect it. How do I open it up? Alos I have an air filter and a motor filter for it. I have often changed the air filter on the top. How do I get at the motor filter, if there is one? Than

Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?
There is a reset button at the back of the powerhead. The user manual can be downloaded from the electrolux website, although I didn't find it very useful. There was some info on how to change the powerhead drive belt. ... Electrolux EL7020A Oxygen 3 Ultra Canister Vacuum Cleaner Bagged Vacuum

I have a Miele S5980 vacuum cleaner, and recently had to change the Hepa filter.

I was vacuuming and noticed that the bag needed changing. the red light with the ! inside the triangle also came on. When the bag was changed, the vacuum would not restart. The red light came on. Tried the reset button but nothing happened. Tried unplugging and re-plugging in and nothing happened. Replaced all the filters and still it wouldh't start. So I brought it downstairs and tried one more time to get it to start. it worked! Is there something wrong with the vacuum cleaner? Was it overheat
It was overheated that is why it worked downstairs after cooling off. ... Miele S548 Bagged Canister Vacuum

You need to have the vacuum cleaned out. If you are good with tools, just remove the motor and fans assembly, take the fans off and wash them. Brush ALL dirt out of the housing and reassemble. Your Electrolux dealer can do this but it isn't cheap. ... Electrolux Epic 6500 Vacuum
I have the Aerus Lux7000-My full bag light indicater is coming on even with a new bag. It gets worst-the machine will cut off when I insert the hose or put my hand over the hole where the hose goes. I changed the filter on the back and put in a new bag. Help please :)

My 30 year old canister vac has had both the filter and bag changed, but everytime I turn it off the bag compartment opens and ejects the bag.
I think its time for a new vacuum cleaner.....sounds like the circuitry is malfunctioning or you have an airflow problem that is tricking the vacuum into thinking the bags full. check all hoses and airways for blockage ... Electrolux Guardian Bagged Canister Vacuum

Miele Cat & Dog vacuum gets VERY hot and is VERY loud. Hose has no restrictions and I have changed the dust compartment (motor) filter and the exhaust filter. It still gets hot when I run it with the top open and all filters removed, so I'm guessing the problem is with the motor. Should I be going into the motor compartment? If so, what am I looking for?
Hi\015\012\015\012The fact that it gets very hot could be due to a number of issues.,but the fact that it started making a very loud noise at the same time suggests that there might be more problems maybe brushes etc.\015\012\ ... Miele S514 Solaris Bagged Canister Vacuum

Overheated vacuum After I finished vacuuming the library last night I changed the bag and shook out both filters and vacuum would not restart. The canister unit felt real warm to the touch but I had been using it a least 1/2 hour non stop. The bag was pretty full but not overly so. It's a Simplicity canister with power head. The carpet is long shag from the 70's Did it just over heat? Thanks Shauna
It normally won't over heat unless the bag is too full, the filters are clogged, or you have have a clog in the hose or down by the brush roll, the inlet may be clogged. Some will restart after a while, some others have a reset to push. If it won't ... Simplicity 7850 Premier Bagged Canister Vacuum
