Miele S200 series / 246i bag indicator
« on: March 13, 2018, 05:34:16 AM »
Greetings all,
I'm off again on another kitchen-table refurb. An update to my previous saga: I bid on a Miele Naturell thinking I'd get a return on the disaster of a DC26 I'd won last month. Turned out the Dyson seller refunded me and didn't want the machine back (was going to trash it, got it working, my SO is very, very pleased). Won the Miele as the only bidder and it'll make a lovely upstairs companion to my mother's DC07 in her 3-floor row house.

I'll tell you, it was a real pleasure tearing down this machine, since it smelled like dryer sheets instead of sewage and relied on screws instead of friction-fit tabs. I meticulously photographed the disassembly, but as I removed the bag indicator, it sprang open across my living room, obviously before I could photograph its orientation.

It's a strange circular thing, very different then the sliding piston in my old S2. I'm curious if anyone knows the order of assembly on this, or the orientation of the colored indicator--I feel like I saw a technical bulletin on manualslib on bag indicators a while back, but I'm stumped on which one it was.

In more exciting news, I managed to get an accompanying turbo head and wand from someone who'd bought a Delphi and upgraded to electric--never used, for $25USD!
