Hi Miele vacuum S570 flashing red light no power. Turned off,

This answer was rated:

Miele vacuum S570 flashing red light no power. Turned off, changed bag, checked filters, checked hose and pipe for blockages (turned on without pipes fitted). Even changed fuse. Still no power, red light comes on and nothing. This model does not have a reset button.
Any advice/help would be supurb


Was the bag overfilled before the light came on?

Had you been using it for a long time before the red light came on?

What country are you in?

How old is this, please?

Hi Jon


Ok, the red light comes on if the motor has overheated or has a fault.

If the bag is overfull or the hose is blocked, the motor overheats and it will cut out and bring on the red light. Once cooled down it will start again. I suspect this is not the case for you if it has been left to cool down.


If the motor is faulty the red light will come on and will not reset.

Unfortunately the motors for these machines is extremely expensive.

Given the age of the product, I would have to say that it probably isnt worth repairing. Im sorry its not good news


I hope this answers your question
