Miele Motors: Compatability?
« on: March 27, 2018, 06:07:55 PM »
Does anyone know if some of the fans on Miele cylinder motors are common please? I bought a Miele S5211 recently which was advertised as 'motor works but no suction, probably blocked or something'. As it was clogged with plaster dust but otherwise in good order, I thought it was worth a punt at 20, and the motor did indeed run.
Upon stripping it down I found that the fan had ingested something heavy enough to break it into about 20 shredded spinters, with only one tiny section still attached to the motor shaft. Amazingly, after cleaning it all up and rebuilding, I found that the motor runs fine, with only minor cosmetic damage to the fan chamber, but of course no fan equals no suction...
New motors for these are 99 upwards, and I've had no luck trying to source another non-runner with the same motor. Looking at pics online, many of the Miele motors have different serial nos. but look 100% identical. I've seen some used motors at 30ish with the wrong s/n, what are the odds that I could simply swap the fan over?
The original motor is s/n MRG 412-42/2, Miele part no. 07890580.
If anyone has a used motor or fan to sell that would do the job, please let me know: thanks.

After a lot of digging online I can answer my own question: most of the Miele fans are  the same, with the exception of the S800 and C1/C3 models. I found this out on the following German site which offers a good range of Miele spares, both new and used. Prices seem reasonable, although there is a 17 courier charge which makes it a bit uneconomic if you are after one low-value part. I've ordered a used fan from there.

You know some Miele motors are available aftermarket now too?

Yes, I saw some on eBay, but not the model I thought I needed. Even aftermarket, they still start at about 60, and I was unsure about reliability. The original ones are like tanks-are these actually built in Germany?
