Disappointed!

Have had this vacuum for 2 years and although it sucks extremely well, I have already had 3 things go wrong with it. 1)cord retraction no longer works, 2)when pole is lengthened it won't stay extended and 3)small brush won't stay in place when extended. It is also heavy and cumbersome. It's like Miele have concentrated all their efforts on the sucking power and nothing on the design. Should be better for a relatively high priced product. Couldn't recommend this vacuum cleaner and I will probably return to Dyson for my next purchase Show details

Worst vaccum cleaner ever

I have brought Miele vac cleaners before and loved them, this would have to be the worst EVER VC
Constantly runs Comfort function, bagless compartment only holds about 1/2 cup before this kicks in, Useless on non carpet floors, power cord gets caught constantly, and all in all it really struggles to clean floors, I absoultly hate it, will NEVER buy a Miele brand again Show details

Made of weak plastic

I had my last Nilfisk vacuum cleaner for 20years but decided to replace it with this Miele. Suction is quite good but parts of the vacuum have already started to break after using it 3-4 times for the past 2 weeks. It is almost new - I haven't even used enough times to empty it yet.

was great for a few months

Worked well for a few months
then suction crap, need to use the floorboards brush on carpets, "bagless" container leaks dust and dirt
Place of purchase and Miele didnt want to take any ownership on this - quoted $300 to look at it, which is half the cost of the vacuum - i wish id done more research on this. Show details

Great vacuum cleaner provided you don’t have wooden floors as the elec cable gets caught under the body

Great vacuum cleaner provided you don’t have wooden floors as the electrical cable gets caught underneath again and again and again - extremely frustrating Show details

Almost great, but not

Mostly a great vacuum cleaner, but I'm here to point out the one huge disappointment (for us).
1. The integrated dusting brush is rubbish. It requires a bit of a knack to move it back and forth, but even more importantly it's poor quality. The bristles are weak and the mechanism that locks it into position wore out after about 18 months which renders it completely useless because it no longer locks into position. We had to buy an after market brush. The integrated brush is a great idea but this design seems really poor, which is why it failed. We would have given it 5 stars, but the brush is important for us. Show details

Very good and easy to use

I recently cleaned a house and they provided the Miele Blizzard CX1 to be used. I found this machine easy to use had excellent suction and was used on carpet and tiles and lino without a problem. The floors were very clean when finished. I never had any problems with the machine tipping over at any time and this included using it on carpeted stairs. I was also reasonably quiet to use. Loved it. Show details

Amazing product!

Very powerfull vacuum, different suction options, not very noisy and easy to pull around the house, decent size cord.
I have a wooden floor and carpete and it works perfectly in both. Show details

An amazing Vacuum Cleaner with Great Suction

This is the 2nd Miele Vacuum Cleaner I have owned. It has great suction especially on carpets. The power head makes vacuuming a breeze when vacuuming pet fur with its turbobrush comprising of four rotating rollers. It has an attachment that is perfect for going over our suede sofa. I like that the vacuum cleaner is bagless and, how simple it is to detach the bin compartment when it's time to empty, by the simple push of a button. One of the easiest and best Vacuum cleaners I have owned to date.  Show details

Delightful little gem

Last week while replacing my Miele washing machine l happened to see this Vacuum while initially intrigued as it was bagless, l had previously bought the Miele C3 cat and dog and it had served me well. Jake from the Miele service centre in Adelaide demonstrated it and as l only have timber flooring now, he said that this model would suit me fine. So impressed with it as l have 2 Shetland Sheepdogs and one of my boys is doing a summer drop so massive amount of fur coming out of him and the vacuum’s suction is great so all fur gone for now and love the bagless feature so easy to use.  Show details

Miele service is terrible

Had an issue with cord not retracting. Contacted Miele service. It took them 2 weeks to respond initially basically asking same questions that was already answered in the first correspondence. Now after 4 weeks I am still waiting for them to respond. Show details

Great vacuum & after sales service

Bought/changed over to the Miele Blizzard CX1 Excellence and glad we did after having a Dyson Cinetic Big Ball vacuum for a few months which lacked decent suction, had to go over the same area 3,4 times to pick up items.

Wish we got the Miele Blizzard from the start. Awesome vacuum no issues very good suction and features. Noticed after a while during the warranty period that the handle and extendable tube plastic parts had cracked/split under normal use and affected the suction performance.

Contacted emailed Mile spare parts advised of situation with pictures and receipt and without any questions or issues sent out the parts without the delay. Awesome after sales support and recommend Mile vacuums. Show details

The cord will not rewind?

Has anyone else had luck in sourcing a longer hose for this model? Miele have not been helpful at all when I rang and the shortness of the house really annoys me.

Thank you for responding, I have purchased this hose extension and had to return it as it is not compatible with the Blizzard models. There must be another hose which is compatible?
