  • Completely Random, Miele Vacuum telescopic wand

    Posted by olivero on December 14, 2019 at 1:44 pm


    This one’s random but I figured either Fixbear or Ectofix might know because you seem to work on anything and everything.

    I had a co-worker bring me a very expensive miele vacuum and they are trying to get the telescopic wand fixed, it basically won’t stay where you click it in place and it has a button which allows you to change the height.

    And yes, I know I can buy a new one but they want to see if I can fix it first.

    I’m assuming it’s a simple mechanism but how to get it apart is what I don’t know and I’m hoping someone does, I would prefer to not wreck it, trying to take it apart.

    Any ideas?

      Why those <div> things again?  All I did was type a reply.

    I’ll add that the reviews on Amazon aren’t very favorable in regards to that wand’s push-button mechanism.

    Thanks Ectofix,

    I figured it out in the end, just had to “snap” the casing off and then I 3D printed the part I needed to fix it, so all is well now.

    Thank you though.

      I don’t see how they could possibly make a clear internal with a push-button lock.  Incoming dirt would surely get caught on the spring and reduce the flow.  You wouldn’t have a picture of it now, would you.

        Yeah it’s tricky to do but the way the mechanism works I think it relies mainly on the outside parts which aren’t in the path of flow.

        Unfortunately, I didn’t take a picture of it and it’s out of my hands now.

    Hi Olivero! I know this is an old thread but I’m wondering if you can tell me about the part you’re printed for this Miele wand repair. I have the same problem and I’m guessing the part you made is the one I need since there aren’t many parts to begin with. Was it the cream-colored cross-looking part inside the wand itself; the part that is very difficult to get to? Anyway, I have many hopes; hope that you’ll see this message, reply, hope that it’s the same part and hope that you still have and will share the file or print the part. I know; lots of hopes. Thanks! Jason
