As I was vacuuming the motor stopped. No cloges, no obstructions. I tried a different electrical outlet still the motor won't come on. Is there a breaker switch on the vacume? How do I access the power switch to test it?

Unlikely to be the switch - more likely to be a broken wire inside the cable at the plug end. Cut off the plug and a few inches of cable - fit a new plug - see what happens.
What could be wrong with my Miele Vacuum cleaner?I have a Miele S290. After changing bags and filters it made a whining noise and then came to a stop. Could not get it to start again. Changed fuse. No luck. Took apart, cleaned it out and tried again. Nothing.
Plugged it in again today and it briefly started and sounded like normal but cut out aft...Click here for the repair.
