When trying to perform a miele vacuum repair you should always consider whether or not you have the technical knowledge to do so without damaging the vacuum cleaner even more. Though some older miele vacuum cleaners tend to look pretty basic on the interior, they have a lot of fidgety parts that can break if not properly put back together. We’ve had many customers that try to fix their miele on their own, but end up doing damage to the cord reel or internal wiring assembly. It is important to know that if you are performing a miele vacuum repair by yourself, it may void the warranty on your machine. You should always consult your user’s manual for more information on warranty.

Though there are not any manufacturing defects with these vacuums, there are some problems that are more commonplace than others. Usually these problems arise by misuse from the homeowner, and can be avoided with proper use of the machine. Some of the more specific things that will keep your vacuum out of the repair room include turning the power off before unplugging the vacuum, and making sure the power nozzle is off before unplugging the hose from the power nozzle assembly. If you fail to do this, it can sometimes cause an arc to form between the two electrical connects. This leads to them being burnt out or induces corrosion at a faster rate.

If you are heart set on performing a miele vacuum repair rather than bringing it to a technician, you should know a few things before proceeding. When you open up an older style miele canister vacuum, you want to be very careful with the screws. Putting too much pressure on them when taking them out or putting them back in will cause the plastic to fracture. Replacing the plastic housing on your vacuum will be much more expensive than fixing the original problem.

The easiest way to access the interior of a miele is to first undue all of the screws in the base when looking at it from the top. You will sometimes have to remove parts to get to all of these screws. Be very careful when removing these top parts, as the tabs that hold them can break if not properly disassembled. Once you remove the parts and the screws, the whole entire top plastic housing should come off. Depending on the model vacuum that you have, the motor and interior components will either be connected to this top housing, or anchored into the lower base housing. Once you have accessed the interior components we recommend that you do not mess with the cord assembly. The cord retraction assembly can easily break if the cord assembly is opened up. If you need to replace the cord make sure that it is cut to size and properly put in just as the other cord was. If you are replacing the motor and other electrical components it’s important to make sure all of the wiring is intact exactly how it was.

Overall we do not recommend performing a vacuum repair on your own, but if need be you should follow the guidelines that we’ve set. Failure to do so will probably make the problems worst! You can find miele vacuum reviews and other information on our website to aid you in any vacuum need!
