Dyson “Stowaway” Canister Vacuum Vacuum
How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?
Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :
Common causes of the machine overheating are because the filter needs washing or the machine is blocked. In addition, if the Dyson vacuum turns off while in use, unplug the machine and let it cool down for about an hour before plugging in again.
Also, make sure the charger is plugged in correctly too. Batteries don`t last forever depending on age and use. You may need to buy a new battery if your Dyson vacuum is turning on and off after only a few minutes of use.
Turn the unit on and feel the suction at the end of the hose handle. If there is no or low suction, then the clog is in the hose. You can remove the clog by running a long, stiff object through the hose, such as a butter knife, starting at the wall end.

I did see a card in the box saying “For the Shiatsu
The large tag says “For the shiatsu mechanism to function, you MUST remove and discard screw BEFORE using this cushion. Failure to do so WILL CAUSE PERMANENT DAMAGE TO THE PRODUCT”. The manual does not mention this screw. There is a two year warranty and a $(ten dollar) handling fee for warranty repairs. I suppose that the warranty is void if you do not remove the screw, however, it seems that only by luck would one normally find this shipping screw (and tag) that holds the rolling mechanism in place during shipping....Remove the screw from the back as instructed by the manual.When you first get the massage cushion you will need to open the box and set it up. The first thing you need to do is remove the safety screw. This screw is holding the massage mechanism in place for shipping purposes. If you do not remove this screw before you turn it on you could permanently damage the cushion.After removing the screw you need to find a good chair and strap it on and plug it in. There are two straps that you need to attach. One is on the back and the other is where the back meets the seat. Once those are around the chair then you plug in the transformer to the wall and the massager.After setting up the massager all you need to do is sit on it and turn it on. You may want to start out with a rolling massage so that you can get a feel for the massager.————–.but as you mentioned, that its a used product, then yes the screw must be already removed by the previous user.and in that case, it indicates any thing internally is got shorted, a loose wire or shorted transformer or burned circuit or weak motor.This are few possibilities , that can cause the problem.Also check batteries in remote.——— And i dont think, this problem is caused by you.This problem must be there before buying this product.Thats why, the user must have sold this on ebay.A local electrical parts repair store tech can get the internal board checked and confirm.If this board is faulty or any small loose wire or shorted wire.————–.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech..
.Unfortunately this is being caused by static electricity building up in the electronic controls in the handle of the hose. I’ve seen this problem on numerious occasions, and in fact I have the twin brother of the Blue Moon, or the Silver Moon which used the same hose, and has the same problems in my own home.
.The good news is that Miele has redesigned the hoses to fix this, and I have never seen a single problem on the newer style hoses. I guess the bad news is that the hose is not cheap.
.I would recommend to you to go ahead and purchase the new hose. The average life expectancy of your Miele is 20-25 years, so you still have a lot of life left in your vacuum.
.Here’s a link to the SES125 Hose that fits your Miele Blue Moon on our website:
.To change the hoses out, simply push the two tabs on the end of the hose that plugs into the vacuum, and pull the hose backwards until it disconnects. You’ll see on the end of the new hose electrical connectors. Simply line these up with the opposity receptacles on the canister and push the hose down until you hear a snapping noise.

First, unplug the machine and disassemble the switch housing. There is a screw in the front. It takes a no. 10 Torx driver to remove it.
On the back there appears to be two little tabs that need to be pulled out. Don’t mess with them! They are there to fool you. Instead, with a flat tip screwdriver, reach down past the tabs and pry inward (the handle of the screwdriver moves outward, the tip prys inward).
On the front is a little tab that needs to be gently pryed down. The unit should slide out.
With your thumb against the back of the switch, press the button. If it seems to be staying down on one stroke and popping up on the next, continue reading. Otherwise, you may need a new switch.
Now for the fix/jury rig:
With the plastic housing set aside. Put all the wiring and switch in it’s place on the vacuum. The switch has grooves that allow it to slide onto the vacuum. Everything should go in neatly.
What you need is a thin piece of wood or plastic, about 3/4″ long and 1/2″ wide (a popsicle stick would probably work). Slide it between the bottom of the switch and the molded plastic on the vacuum. Make sure it is snug. Try the switch. It should be working now.
Now carefully slide the housing back on. I like to depress the switch first. Make sure the housing snaps back on. It takes a bit of force, but it should slide fairly easily right up to near the vacuum’s face. If not you may want to make sure you’re not interferring with any wires etc.
