Caring for our environment
Disposal of packing material
The packaging is designed to protect
the vacuum cleaner from damage
during transportation. The packaging
materials used are selected from
materials which are environmentally
friendly for disposal and should be
recycled.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation.
Disposing of the dustbag and
filters
Disposing of your old
appliance
Before disposing of your old appliance
remove the dustbag and all the filters
and dispose of them with your normal
household waste.
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your appliance.
Please do not therefore dispose of it
with your household waste.
These are made from environmentally
friendly materials. The filters can be
disposed of with the normal household
waste. The dustbag can also be
disposed of in this way if it has been
used exclusively for general household
dust.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection/recycling
centre, or contact your dealer for
advice.
Ensure that it presents no danger to
children while being stored for
disposal.

15
Correct use
Adjusting the suction power
The suction power can be regulated to
suit the type of flooring. The higher the
setting the more powerful the suction.
Reducing the suction power reduces
the amount of effort required to
manoeuvre the floorhead.
Some models also have symbols on the
controls. The symbols indicate the type
of use the settings are suitable for:
# - curtains, lightweight fabrics
$ - upholstery, cushions
% - thick pile carpets, rugs and
runners
* - for daily energy-saving vacuuming
(this setting is also very quiet)
( - loop-pile carpets

intensive cleaning of carpets
When using the AirTeQ floorhead, if
the suction seems too high, reduce
the suction until the floorhead is
easier to manoeuvre.
Rotary selector
^ Turn the suction power selector
manually to the suction power setting
you require.
16
Correct use
Opening the air inlet valve on
the handle
It is easy to reduce the suction power
for a short time, e.g. to prevent rugs or
other objects being sucked into the
vacuum cleaner.
^ Open the air inlet valve far enough to
reduce the suction power.
The floorhead will be easier to
manoeuvre. Close the valve when you
are ready to use full power again.
Vacuuming
^ When vacuuming, pull the cleaner
behind you on its wheels. You can
stand it upright for vacuuming stairs
and curtains etc.
Warning: When vacuuming
especially fine dust, e.g. sawdust,
sand, plaster, flour, talcum powder
etc., electrostatic charges build up
naturally. Under certain conditions
these charges will be released. To
avoid the unpleasant effects of these
discharges, a metal inlay has been
incorporated into the underside of
the handle. Please make sure that
you keep your hand in constant
contact with this metal strip during
vacuuming.
17
Setting down, transportation and storage
Parking system for pauses in
vacuuming
The parking system allows you to
conveniently park the vacuum cleaner
during pauses.
^ Slot the floorhead into the parking
attachment at the back of the vacuum
cleaner.
If the vacuum cleaner is on a sloping
surface, e.g. a ramp, retract the
suction tube fully.
Parking system for storage
Warning: Always disconnect the
vacuum cleaner from the electrical
supply when you have finished
using it. Switch off at the wall socket
and unplug it.
There is a parking attachment on each
side of the vacuum cleaner.
^ Stand the vacuum cleaner upright
when it is not being used and when it
is being stored.
Retract the telescopic tube fully.
^ Then slot the floorhead downwards
into one of the parking attachments
on the side of the vacuum cleaner.
This makes the cleaner easier to carry
or store.
18
Setting down, transportation and storage
If your vacuum cleaner has an XXL
handle, you can detach this so that the
vacuum cleaner requires less storage
space.
^ Detach the XXL handle from the
retracted suction tube.
^ Wind the suction hose around the
suction tube and then slot the XXL
handle into the second parking
attachment.
19
Maintenance and care
Warning: Always disconnect the
vacuum cleaner from the electrical
supply before any maintenance
work. Switch off at the wall socket
and unplug it.
Purchasing new dustbags and
filters
Original Miele dustbags and filters can
be ordered from your Miele Dealer,
from Miele or online at:
The Miele filter system consists of three
filters which must be replaced from
time to time to ensure that your vacuum
cleaner performs efficiently.
– Dustbag
– Exhaust filter
– Dust compartment filter (for motor
protection)
Only use genuine dustbags, filters,
accessories and optional
accessories with the "Original Miele"
logo on them. Only this will ensure
that the suction power of the
vacuum cleaner is maintained,
giving the best possible cleaning
results.
Warning: The use of dustbags made
from paper or paper-based materials,
or dustbags with a cardboard collar,
or dustbags that do not carry the
"Original Miele" logo, can seriously
damage the vacuum cleaner and
invalidate the warranty.
Only use original Miele F/J/M dustbags
with a red collar. Using any other
dustbags will damage the vacuum
cleaner. Original Miele dustbags are
identified by the "Original Miele" logo on
the packaging or directly on the
dustbag.
An Air Clean filter and a dust
compartment filter are supplied with
every packet of Miele dustbags.
These can also be purchased
separately.
You can replace the exhaust filter fitted
in the vacuum cleaner with one of the
other Miele exhaust filters if you wish
(see "Optional accessories").
20
Maintenance and care
When to change the dustbag
Change the dustbag when the colour
marker in the dustbag change indicator
fills the display, or sooner if it is no
longer effective (see possible reasons
for this below).
Miele dustbags are disposable and
designed to be used only once.
Dispose of the dustbag when it is
full. Do not attempt to reuse them as
suction would be reduced.
Checking the dustbag change
indicator
^ Attach the standard floorhead to the
suction tube. Do not use any of the
other floorheads or attachments as
they will cause the dustbag change
indicator to give a false reading.
^ Switch the vacuum cleaner on and
select the highest power setting.
^ Lift the floorhead off the floor a little. If
the marker completely fills the
dustbag change indicator, you
should replace the dustbag with a
new one.
How the dustbag change indicator
works
The dustbag change indicator is set for
normal household dust. This generally
contains a mixture of dust, hair, carpet
fluff, threads, grit etc.
However, if the cleaner has been used
to vacuum up fine dust, such as
plaster, brick dust, cement or flour, the
pores of the dustbag will become
blocked very quickly. This affects the
air permeability of the bag, and the
marker will indicate that the bag is "full"
even when it is not. If this happens you
must still change the dustbag because
suction power will be greatly reduced
by blocked pores in the dustbag.
If, on the other hand, you have
vacuumed up a large amount of hair
and carpet fluff which typically contains
a lot of air, the indicator may fail to
react even though the bag is full. You
should still change it! Both these
extremes can occur.
21
Maintenance and care
Replacing the dustbag
^ Press the release button for the dust
compartment lid and raise the lid as
far as it will go.
The dustbag has a closing flap which
closes automatically when the dust
compartment lid is raised to prevent
any dust escaping.
^ Pull the dustbag out by the grip next
to the self-closing flap on the collar.
^ Fit the new dustbag into the red
holder as far as it will go. Leave it
folded up when you take it out of the
box.
^ It should be unfolded in the dust
compartment.
^ Close the dust compartment lid
securely, making sure it clicks into
position. Take care not to trap the
dustbag when doing so.
Warning: The lid will not close
without a dustbag in place. Do not
use force!
22
Maintenance and care
When to change the exhaust
filter
Depending on model, your vacuum
cleaner will be fitted as standard with
one of the following exhaust filters:
a Air Clean
Replace this filter every time you start a
new packet of Miele dustbags. An Air
Clean exhaust filter and a dust
compartment filter are supplied with
every packet of Miele dustbags.

Problem solving guide / After sales service
The vacuum cleaner switches off
automatically
A temperature limiter switches the
vacuum cleaner off automatically if it
gets too hot.
This can occur if, for instance, large
articles block the suction tube or when
the filter bag is full or contains particles
of fine dust. A heavily soiled exhaust or
dust compartment filter can also be the
cause of overheating. Switch the
vacuum cleaner off immediately using
the On/Off foot control s. Disconnect
from the electricity supply. Switch it off
at the wall socket and unplug it.
After sales service
In the event of a fault that you cannot
easily remedy, please contact
– your Miele Dealer
or
– Miele (see back cover for contact
details).
Please note that telephone calls may
be monitored and recorded for
training purposes (UK only).
