Cat and dog plus S512
« on: August 02, 2021, 03:16:28 PM »
Hello all.
I've owned my Miele cat and dog plus for  20 years. More than happy with it.
My wife recently got a bit heavy handed and broke the centre section at the rear , between cable rewind and power switches.
I have emailed Miele about spare/replacement part and looked at the part selection tool in their website, but they inform me it is not available.
I'm wondering if anyone knows of any other model that might fit it. Obviously it would have to have the multi wattage selector print.
Or alternatively another spare part supplier that may be able to help me out ?
Many thanks in advance
Trevor

I keep meaning to go through my box of spares for you and see what I have, seeing this post has reminded me tbh, sorry!

Although if I haven't, if you remove the whole thing you could get creative with a cut up yoghurt pot and some epoxy to fill the hole, or fibreglass?

Or plan C is probably to find the cheapest, most rattiest matching model on ebay and use it for spares. If the physical shape of the machine is the same the back end will fit. Even the fancy push button adjustment ones are the same, all the 'logic' is in that part, it just plugs into the motor and cord reel loom and does it's thing.

I'll have a look over the weekend for you and report back! I've got a few back end parts, but not fully sure I have one of those...

Nice one Hoover Master! As the one I have is incorrect... Searched the shed too earlier and found nothing either!

PM me anytime, easy to swap over, two screws to undo then just pull the panel off. Iíll send it complete with the pcb so you donít have to swap boards over

I use my 20 year old Miele S512 cat & dog a lot, great machines
