, my Miele S2 special vacuum cleaner's suction has stopped

This answer was rated:

Hello, my Miele S2 special vacuum cleaner's suction has stopped working. I believe I may have taken something up that has blocked it. I have checked the hose and the pipe and they are clear; I have changed the bag and the filters and it is still not working.
Thank you
Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

Is this the cannister S2?
How old is it?

When you turn the machine on, do you get any lights, does the motor run?

I can't remember how long I have had it but no more than 2 years. Yes, it turns on and sounds very loud and feels hot.


OK, so, remove the hose and turn it on. Feel the suction where the hose would attach.
Does the motor sound different and do you have good suction there?

Refit the hose, does the motor noise change, and is there poor suction at the end of the hose?

Do you know what you picked up?

I have just tried it again and am embarrassed to say that it appears to have cleared! But that is good news; it cost me some money but I now know this site is around.

Thanks Rob

Great news
