It turned out that the servo motor had failed some time ago, but the customer had continued using it on carpets for several weeks, even though it was making a hideous noise. What seems to have happened is that the brushroll was digging in on carpets (due to the higher resistance) and stalling. But the motor kept turning, and this made the front drive belt strip most of it's teeth.
Not quite sure why the brushroll stall device was not kicking in and shutting the motor down, but once I replaced the servo motor and the small front belt it was OK again.

P.S. I do like and use parts from M-Vacs, they are always good quality but those little white sweets in a plastic wrapper you sent as a bonus with my last order taste terrible - a bit like soap :(

Are those silca gel?  :chuckle:

We've done nothing with Air Wraps except change the flex up to now. You're a pioneer. Did you solve it?

Miele Vacuum Cleaners / Re: Miele S5280 - Board repair?

The only person I know that would be able to fix that board is Ryevac. But it may not be economically viable.

Miele are notorious in that you have to swap like with like. And as Macman said, parts are very expensive. Used spares are the way to go with those.

But do I also need to order a replacement PCB main board as well? It's the later type, NPPSTXSNM-3. Is it possible that both have failed simultaneously: could the servo motor have blown and taken out the main board PCB with it?

Highly unlikely.

Hello all. General searches looking for parts and repair advice kept leading me here, mostly use Sebos and a couple of Dysons, I think this has the most useful information in one place out of everything I've found. Cheers.

Much like a DC41, and there is strip down topics here on those.

Before you do, take the head off, put a meter on the two connectors from the machine, you are looking for circa 320v DC. Try and replicate the fault while watching the meter. That will tell you if it is the loom. It probably is, but that will tell you for sure before you strip it down.
Thank you very much  :thumbsup:

It sounds like the yoke loom.

Take it apart and test that with a meter. They break inside.

Thanks. Is it hard to dissemble?
