Got someone important coming around tomorrow morning and the carpet really needs to be hoovered.
NO CHANCE Now angry

Any recommendations on reliable models ?

Does more £ = reliability?

Get laminate flooring? Most of our floors are laminate, much simpler. Gave up with vaccum cleaners as I don't have much luck with them either. Now use a stiff brush wherever we have carpets. Much more reliable when you've got the electrical appliance death touch.

Just a thought but have you had your wiring/sockets checked? It might not be the qulaity of the hoover.
I kept blowing things for a good 3 years before someone suggested getting it looked at and lo and behold an unearthed socket was the problem.

"death touch" grin
thanks for that....funny!
I'm so tired and really want to just get cleared up and put my feet up.
Have not had a day off for two weeks.
Why do I do the hoovering anyway.....I WANT A CLEANER!

Actually, as I posted I thought about the possibility of it being the electrics.
The pump has gone on the power shower, fan on the oven and the hoover! ARGGGGHHHHHHH

Think it is just bad luck though!

miele, just get one of their cheaper models it's all the same basic machine your paying more for the extras that come with it and whether the controls are manual or elecric.
