Miele Vacuum Cleaners / Re: Miele C3 fault Model SGDF3
« Last post by pan50 on June 14, 2024, 09:37:51 pm »
The control board, often referred to as the PCB (Printed Circuit Board), can fail. Symptoms of a faulty control board include the power selector icon lighting up briefly and then the vacuum shutting off. This is a relatively common issue with some Miele models.

Given the specific symptom, the control board (PCB) and its components (such as capacitors and the triac) are likely suspects.

Thanks for your reply I guess ill have to look into testing the caps and have a closer look at the triac. do you think there could be dry joints on the PCB?

How are you deciding it has weak suction when reclined?


When reclining it, it  skims the carpet and doesn't seem to pick up that much.

Behind the recliner swivel mechanism is a micro switch that turns the head on and off. That will be misaligned or the actuator left off or similar. The problem will be to do with that microswitch anyway.

Just as an update, we do have some recycled Dyson DC18 hoses in stock.

Hello,

My first post and I would be very grateful if someone is able to advise as I am stuck. Initial fault:

    1) DC40 had an intermittent brush motor whilst vacuuming. Disassembly showed that there was wear to the yoke cable. The white wire was split.

    2) I replaced the entire yoke cable with that from a matching DC40 I have for parts.

    3) I reassembled the vacuum. Powered on and the brush is now spinning. (Great I thought!)

    4) However, now the brush does not turn off when in the upright position. Nor does it turn off if I press the grey button to activate/deactivate the brush.

    5) I disassembled the vacuum again to make sure that all wires were connected correctly to the PCB where the yoke cable connected in case I accidentally disconnected a wire. These all look fine. I reassembled and the fault remains.[/li]

Does anyone have any suggestions on what the fault could be and how to resolve it? Prior to the yoke cable replacement, the brush would activate/deactivate normally with the button or in the upright position.

Best regards,
John

Hi i have an issue with this vac, when pressing the power the Orange power selector icon briefly lights up then nothing.



I have checked the TOC all connections seem fine. Motor is clean and brushes still have plenty of meat left. 
any ideas what the issue is?

Thanks

Dyson DC04 / Weak suction at the cleaner.

My DC04 has excellent suction at the wand,  but the suction when reclined is weak. Do you know what the issue is?  I've checked all the filters, checked the seal and checked to see if there's any blockage.

Good to see an X1 going strong, my personal favourite model!
Replacement pedal is exactly the same as the original apart from colour. Will just clip straight on.
As for the wheels I'm not 100% sure but take the axel off and you'll probably find they unscrew or just pull straight off.
All spares can be bought on the Manchester vacs website or ebay etc for fairly cheap.
Lastly, as long as your confident I'm more than sure you'll be able to do the repair yourself! Some parts are quite fiddly I've found during my experience of working with Sebo vacuums.
