Miele S183 Powerhouse Blue Upright
Miele has been designing and manufacturing
products for the home since 1899. They produced their first vacuum cleaner
in 1927. Their products are world renowned for their power, durability and
performance. The Miele S183 is an excellent example, combining style with
functionality and durability to create an outstanding upright with
||Efficient Sealed HEPA Filtration System
This Miele's sealed HEPA
filtration system helps reduce recirculation of dust and allergens back
into your home. A 4.9 Qt. IntensiveClean dustbag and a secondary
filter clean the air before it enters the motor. Following the motor the
air is additionally cleaned by the large area fan-fold HEPA exhaust
filter. This 6-stage filtering system enhances the filtering ability while
extending the filter media's life span. It prevents large particles from
reaching and blocking the exhaust filter, saving it for critical particle
The large area fan-fold HEPA exhaust filter has a seal around it so
that air and small particles can't bypass it. Additional seals
within the case ensure that the sub-micrometer
dust you pick up actually reaches the high filtration exhaust filter and
is not blown out through minute cracks in the case or around the exhaust
filter like many competing cleaners with high filtration exhaust filters.
||Durable and Efficient Clean-Air Design
A key feature which all Miele uprights incorporate is the
clean-air system design. The air flow which
picked up the dirt is cleaned by the filtering system before it passes
through the fan of the suction motor. This design eliminates fan breakage
problems which can be caused when objects are picked up by a
dirty-air system. Also, it typically
produces significantly more suction, especially when the hose and
attachments are used. For more about these two designs, see our article
on Fan or Impeller Types & Performance.
||Powerful Speed 12 Amp. Motor
Strong suction and rigorous carpet
agitation powered by its 12
Amp. motor combine in the Miele S183 to
deep-clean carpet as well as all other surfaces. Featuring lifetime
lubricated ball bearings and well balanced motor parts, it will perform
quietly for many years. The track record of these motors is one of the
best in the industry.
The Miele S183 has a brush roll with two rows of bristles plus two rows
of beater bars. In addition to this, there
are active edge bristles which enhance edge cleaning by brushing very close
to the baseboard. The use of permanently lubricated
ball bearings eliminates the need to replace
sleeve bearings when they fail due to
||Convenient Rug/Bare Floor Switch
The revolving brush roll can easily be stopped with a flip of the
Rug/Bare Floor switch, enabling you to go directly from cleaning carpet to
cleaning vinyl or wood floors. This is important since a revolving brush
roll can whip the small grit and dirt behind the machine before the air
flow has a chance to pick it up. This switch also functions to stop the
brush roll during the time you use the attachments. This prevents bed
spreads, throw rugs, etc. from accidentally being caught in the vacuum
cleaner while your attention is on the furniture being cleaned.
||Automatic Carpet Height Adjustment
The Miele S183 upright has automatic carpet height adjustments. The
weight of the main housing is carried on the two rear wheels, allowing the
fairly light nozzle to float on the top of the carpet. This design makes
them very maneuverable around furniture as well as convenient when going
from one carpet to another. When the handle is moved to the vertical
position for using the attachments, the agitator is automatically raised
out of the carpet nap. This is helpful as well when you want to pause a
moment to move a piece of furniture without turning off the cleaner.
The Miele S183 has its dusting brush conveniently tucked away in the
back of its case where it is always easily accessible. To further save
space, the extra-long crevice tool stores inside the wand. By using a 3:1
stretch hose, the distance which the air must travel when cleaning
floors is shortened, reducing internal
resistance and increasing
air flow. To extend the total reach to 10 feet,
the crevice tool can function as an extension wand since the other
attachments fit on it as well as on the stretch 7' hose or wand. We recommend
purchasing the optional
upholstery nozzle for
cleaning upholstered furniture, carpeted stairs, etc.
