The Miele STB 305-3 TurboTeQ Turbo Brush is the perfect solution to remove hair and threads from delicate carpets. Although it comes as a standard brush with only a few machines, it will fit and work with all Miele canister vacuums.
It has a cleaning width of approximately 10”. It also has a roller brush that rotates at a high speed, ensuring that even stubborn hair and debris are removed from the rugs and carpets effortlessly. The Miele STB 305-3 is perfect for homes with pets (or people) with long hair.
Due to the quality of materials used to manufacture this tool, it is quite sturdy.
The Miele STB 305-3 TurboTeQ Turbo Brush is a tool specifically designed to clean delicate low-pile rugs and carpets thoroughly. This attachment is perfect for homes with limited carpeted area like apartments or condo units.
The rotating roller brush runs on the suction power of the vacuum and attaches easily to any canister vacuum cleaner from Miele.
The rotating roller brush on the STB 305-3 TurboTeQ removes hair and threads gently and quickly. It will keep your carpet fibres clean and free from matting.
While meant for short-pile carpets, it can work on some dense-pile carpets as well. The air adjustment valve prevents it from sticking to deeper, dense-pile carpets. This inlet valve should always be closed except for when you are cleaning dense-pile rugs or carpets.
It has an approximately 10-inch cleaning width and is lighter and easier to handle than the powered brushes. The Miele STB 305-3 TurboTeQ consists of four rubber wheels at the bottom that maintain constant distance from the floor.

Since the roller brush is close to the surface, some hair and threads do get entangled in the brush which causes it to slow down.
Therefore, frequent cleaning of the roller brush is required to maintain optimal cleaning performance of the tool. Even more so if you have a long-haired pet.
Does the Miele STB 305-3 TurboTeQ Turbo Brush Work as Good as the Electric Powered Brush?
It also does not glide easily over medium and high pile carpets like a power brush.
Can You Use the Miele STB 305-3 TurboTeQ Turbo Brush on Hard Floors?
The STB 305-3 can be used on hardwood floors, but you need to be sure that the surface is even. Because if you use it on textured or uneven surfaces, the rotating brush might rub against the surface cause damage.
Also, if something gets stuck in the roller brush as its spinning, it will hit and damage the floor.
So, it is best if you can avoid using on hard floors altogether. Also do not use this turbo brush for hand-knotted rugs and carpets as it can cause damage to them.

Why is the Miele STB 305-3 Brush Not Working?
If your Miele STB 305-3 Brush suddenly stopped working, there are a few things that you can check.
First, is there a blockage in the airway between the brush and the handle? If there is, this blockage is preventing proper airflow that is needed for suction. Remove this blockage to see if the brush will start working again.
Note that this tool does not have an auto shut-off feature when it encounters a blockage so it will just continue to provide weak suction.
The next thing to check for is any hair tangled in the brush’s bristles. This will prevent the brush from spinning and you will have a hard time pushing this attachment around.
Simply cut off the tangled hair to allow the roller to move freely again. Don’t forget to check the parts of the roller that attaches to the brush head. Both ends can easily be filled with dust buildup and pet hair. You can use a sharp object like a knife or a toothpick to dislodge the dust and hair build-up in these crevices.
How to Clean Miele STB 305-3 Turbo Brush?
You can use a seam ripper or scissors to cut any threads or hair entangled around the roller brush. Just use the groove provided on the roller brush as a guide. Once you finish cutting, just run the vacuum cleaner to suck up the bits.
Do not submerge it in water or hold it directly under running water for cleaning. Clean all parts with a dry or slightly damp cloth only to prevent any damage.
