Miele vacuum cleaners are known for their ability to deep clean even the dirtiest carpets and rugs. Deep-seated dirt and stubborn clumps of fur are no match for this cleaning tool. Part of why the vacuum cleaner is so effective in sucking up dust, dander, and other unwanted particles is the extra help that is provided by different Miele vacuum cleaner floorheads.
When it comes to finding a partner for your Miele vacuum cleaner, there is a wide selection of floorheads available to choose from. Some of them are powered only by suction while others are electrically powered.
Suction or air-driven floorheads include the parquet twister brush, parquet twister XL floor brush, the TurboTeQ turbo brush, and the AllTeQ combination floor tool.
The motor-driven floorbrushes that run on electricity are the Electro floorbrush, Electro Plus floorbrush, and the Electro Premium Floorbrush.

Can You Use All the Floorheads on Any Miele Vacuum Cleaner?
All the floorheads mentioned here can be attached to any Miele canister vacuum cleaners. However, if the model you currently have does not have an electric wand or hose, it will not be able to power the three motor-driven floorheads.
Note that you can still use the switched off floorheads for vacuuming particularly if you don’t want to use the beater bar. Nevertheless, it is always advisable to check the manual of your vacuum cleaner (or our individual posts about the floorheads) before ordering any attachment.
Cleaning Air-driven Miele Vacuum Cleaner Floorhead
Cleaning the air-driven Miele vacuum cleaner floorhead involves removing the hairs, fur, and fibers that get trapped in its bristles. Get a pair of scissors or knife and carefully cut the tangled hair and fibers. You can also pull them out using a seam ripper. Detach and floorhead from the wand and vacuum the debris to quickly get rid of it after.
For the motor-driven floorheads, you will need to open the panel underneath it with a screwdriver or flat blade. Once you have access to the roller brush, detach it from the belt and take it out. Use a pair of scissors or knife to cut any tangled hair or fiber from the bristles. You can vacuum that after cleaning the entire thing.
Make sure that you also check the part that connects the roller brush to the casing. Some hairs get tangled in there as well. Use a damp rag to clean the chamber where the roller brush goes. Re-insert the roller brush into its slot. Re-attach it to the belt properly, close the lid and put back the screws securely.
Never submerge any of the floorheads in water. If needed, you can wipe them with a damp rag to get rid of any oil or stubborn dirt.
Why Your Miele Vacuum Floorhead May Stop Working
If you’ve been vacuuming continuously for a longer time and the floorhead suddenly stops working, then it may be because the vacuum cleaner has overheated. This can also occur if the dust bag, exhaust filter, or dust compartment filters are too full.
Some vacuum cleaner models have an auto-shut off feature that turns the machine off. Naturally, the floorhead will also be switched off. When this occurs, check the dust bag and filters, and replace if needed. Allow your vacuum cleaner to cool down before resuming vacuuming.
The floorheads are also equipped with an auto-switch off feature whenever something blocks the suction tube. Turn off and unplug the vacuum cleaner. Inspect the wand and vacuum hose for any blockage. Check the floorhead too, as small things tend to get lodged in its neck or joint.
Once the blockage is cleared, let the floorhead cool off for about ten minutes before plugging in the vacuum cleaner and resuming vacuuming.
If the floorhead is powered on but the roller brush isn’t spinning, the most common reason is that there is too much debris tangled on the bristles. Follow the cleaning instructions given above to see if this will address the problem.
If the roller brush still does not spin, it could be because you are using the wrong height setting for the surface you are cleaning. Using a low setting to vacuum high pile carpets puts pressure on the roller brush making it difficult for it to spin. Adjust the floorhead’s height as needed and try again.
For the motor-driven floorheads, if there are no hairs tangled on the roller, no blockage can be found in the airway, and the height has been adjusted accordingly, if the problem persists, then you must bring the floorhead and the vacuum cleaner to a Miele technician.
Are Miele Vacuum Cleaner Floorheads Safe?
If you want to know if the Miele vacuum cleaner floorheads are safe to use on the different surfaces of your home, then the easy answer is ‘yes’.
The Parquet Twister brush and Parquet Twister XL brushes have soft bristles to prevent scratching the hard floors. The other air and motor-driven floorheads have rubber wheels to prevent them from scratching the surfaces. Additionally, you can adjust the height of the floorhead to prevent flattening your carpets.
When it comes to the risk of electrocution when using the motor-driven floorheads, you can eliminate that by not getting them wet. Also, never open the access panel of your floorhead while the vacuum cleaner is switched on or plugged in. Otherwise, the Miele floorheads are perfectly safe to use.
