I will try and help with this problem Miele complete c3

The machine is ready to pick up.

The customer had been using the machine without the correct bags and therefore the Motor had filled with fluff. This had caused the motor to overheat and therefore high resistance on the circuit board by re-soldering the connection it fixed the problem.
