Customer Q & A
Q1: I have an older Miele model - Black Diamond S256i. My powerbrush just died. Will this one fit Black Diamond S256i canister vacuum cleaner?Any other powerbrushes I can use with this vacuum cleaner?
Yes, it should fit, but there is one thing to keep in mind. Generally, between models like SEB 217, SEB 217-2 and SEB 217-3, there is one big difference. While the electrical connection at the top of each powerhead should be a direct fit with other and older models, the back plastic piece of the powerhead won't fit in some Miele vacuums. The park feature, where you can slide the back plastic piece of a powerhead into a slot on the side, back or bottom of a vacuum is sized differently for different models. For yours in particular, the SEB 217 original model powerhead would fit that S256i. That vac is older than what I've typically dealt with, but that one came with a powerhead? Any of the pics I've been able to find make it look like a straight suction model. If it's straight suction the STB 205 is the tool you'll probably have to go with air driven turbobrush. If it is electrically driven, the 217 will fit. Hope that helps.
