I have a MIELE vacum cleaner model S5210
Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

Can you tell me how old this is please?
Also, is the sound similar to an aircraft noise?

Has it picked up anything strange like plaster dust or water?

1 approx 4 years.

2 Yes, it sounds like an aircraft noise


3 no it has not picked any hevy objects or plaster dust


Well, i am afraid its bad news, sorry.
It sounds like the main bearing has failed, or the fan has become loose, either will make this machine make a rally bad noise.

This would mean replacing the motor as a complete assembly, as this is how it comes from Miele.
The really bad news is that the part alone is over £150 or €175

Its also not the easiest job to replace it yourself.

Sorry it wasn't good news for you
