Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposal of your old appliance
or machine
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled. Rather
than just throwing these materials away,
please ensure they are 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!
Electrical and electronic appliances /
machines 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 or machine. Please do
not therefore dispose of it with your
household waste.
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.
It should be unplugged or disconnected
from the mains electricity supply by a
competent person.
9
Moving the ironer
Safety
Do not remove the safety device
until the ironer has been set up on
its rollers.
^ To remove it simply pull it off.
Store it in a safe place for future use. It
should be fitted to the ironer again
before moving it (e.g. when moving
house). Fold the ironer up before fitting
it.
10
Moving the ironer
The ironer is fitted with four rollers.
^ Hold the ironer by the ironing table to
push it or to pull it towards you.
^ Hold the ironing table securely and
pull on the release catch situated at
the back of the ironing table on the
right hand side.
To overcome obstacles such as carpet
edges and doorways, but also to steer
it:
^ Tilt it slightly.
The ironer can be moved either in the
upright position or when folded up.
^ Swing the top section of the ironer to
the horizontal position for using it, or
swing it down in the vertical position
for storage. Then let go of the release
catch.
^ Before folding the ironing away or
moving it, make sure the water
reservoir cap is tightly secured to
prevent spillages.
11
Before using for the first time
Connection cable
Dust cover
The mains connection cable is wound
round a hook underneath the ironing
table.
The dust cover which protects the roller
during transit has to be removed.
Unwind the cable.
Do not insert the plug into the electrical
socket yet.
12
^ First remove the feed-in table by
lifting it out of the right hand holder,
and then pulling it out to the left of the
roller.
Before using for the first time
Then insert the plug in the socket and
switch the ironer on. The heater plate
will rise automatically.
^ The protective dust cover can now
be pulled out and off.
^ An adhesive label for the temperature
selector (see illustration) is supplied
separately. Please stick this around
the temperature selector.
13
Before ironing
Preparation of the working
area
To ensure an even distrubution of
steam make sure the ironer is level and
secure and that it cannot roll sideways.
Preparing the laundry
Correct preparation of the laundry is
essential for successful ironing.
Before ironing, the laundry should be:
– damped down if you are ironing
without steam
– pulled into shape and smoothed out
– sorted
Damping down when ironing without
steam
A height-adjustable chair is useful and
also a flat surface, e.g. a table, to lay
the ironed laundry on.
Place close at hand:
– a basket with the laundry ready for
ironing to the left of the rotary ironer,
– a surface for the ironed laundry to
the right of the rotary ironer.
Shirts, overalls and blouses etc., should
be hung on coathangers immediately
after ironing.
Small items can be hung over the swing
out bar.
Have some water ready for redamping
the laundry if necessary.
14
The laundry needs to be sufficiently
damp, so that when it is passed just
once through the rotary ironer at the
correct temperature, it will come out
smooth and dry. Dampen the laundry
as you would for hand ironing,
preferably several hours beforehand so
that the articles achieve a uniform
degree of dampness throughout.
If a tumble dryer is being used, select a
"Machine iron" programme.
Use warm water if preparation time is
short and also to redampen.

Before ironing
Pulling into shape and smoothing

Checking the effectiveness of
the finger guard
Pull the dampened laundry into shape
as usual.
The finger guard is a safety feature and
should always be checked before the
ironer is used.
Smooth out ties, straps, seams and
hems.
Large items such as table cloths, bed
linen etc should be folded lengthways
into a number of pleats so that they can
be ironed as easily as possible.
^ With the ironer switched on, press the
foot pedal right down.
– the heater plate comes down onto
the rotating roller.
Sorting
Sort the laundry according to how
much heat is required for ironing. This
way you can start by ironing at a lower
temperature and then gradually
increase the temperature according to
the fabric being ironed.
First iron synthetic fibres such as nylon,
polyester and artificial silk which only
require a low temperature. Then iron
silk, wool, cotton and linen at increasing
temperatures.
Iron starched items last of all to avoid
any starch deposits from affecting the
finish of other items.
Before using the ironer for the first
time:
You may be able to see or feel a 2-3 mm
high ridge along the roller.
This will even itself out after about 3 hours
of ironing enabling the under cloth to
settle. It has no effect on the ironing.
^ If you now lift the finger guard, the
roller stops rotating and the heater
plate rises up.
This shows that the finger guard is
working.
^ Let go of the finger guard and take
your foot off the foot pedal.
^ Press the foot pedal right down
again.
– the heater plate lowers and the
roller rotates.
15
Steam
The ironer can also be used with steam
for ironing dry or slightly damp laundry.
,Never use softened or distilled
Ironing with and without steam
water on its own in this ironer as this
will cause pitting corrosion in the
water reservoir.
If your laundry is sufficiently damp for
ironing you can iron without using the
steam function. Use steam for ironing
dry laundry, or laundry that is only very
slightly damp.
Filling the water reservoir
Fill the reservoir to the lower edge of
the neck with tap water. Do not fill it
any higher.
^ Replace the cap making sure it is
securely tightened. If it is not secure,
there is a danger of water leaking out
of the reservoir when the ironer is
folded up again.
If the a "Water reservoir empty"
indicator lights up red during ironing,
the water reservoir can be refilled with
tap water.
If the water reservoir is not filled while
the steam setting is activated, the Q
"Steam" and a "Water reservoir empty"
will flash alternately every few minutes.
^ Before switching on, fill the water
reservoir with tap water (approx. 0.8
litres) with the ironer set up in the
working position.
Do not use proprietary bottled ironing
or de-ionised water!
^ To make it easier, use the screw-on
funnel.
If the water hardness level in your area
exceeds 3 mmol/l (300 mg/l or 17°dH) it
is advisable to mix the tap water with
distilled water in a ratio of 1:1.
16
Danger of burning! Take care. To
prevent the risk of scalding yourself
with hot steam do not open the cap
fully. It can be opened very slightly
to release the steam.
^ Wait until all the steam has escaped
before opening the cap and filling the
reservoir with water.
There may still be residual water in the
reservoir. The amount will depend on
the water hardness level and the
amount of limescale present.
Steam
One reservoir is sufficient for approx.
40 minutes of ironing with steam. It
takes approx. 4 minutes for the water to
heat up to the correct temperature for
steam ironing. The heating-up time may
change as a result of limescale building
up in the reservoir.
^ It is advisable to switch off the steam
function during an interruption to
ironing and at the end of ironing.
Emptying the water reservoir
,Before emptying the reservoir
make sure that the water in it has
cooled down and that the roller has
cooled down.
The reservoir should be emptied after
each use to avoid damage from
deposits present in the water (e.g.
chlorine, calcium or copper).
^ Slowly fold the ironer up and at the
same time hold a suitable container
(e.g. a measuring jug) underneath
the reservoir to catch the water.
^ When all the water has run out,
replace the cap.
^ Unscrew the water reservoir cap.
^ To make it easier, use the screw-on
funnel.
^ The screw-on funnel can be stored
on the cable holder when not in use.

The ironing process is controlled by the
foot pedal which has three positions:
A low speed makes it easier to iron
complicated articles such as shirts and
blouses. A lower speed should also be
selected for folded items. Reducing the
speed will enable them to get dry and
smooth in just one or two passes
through the ironer.
Thinner, single thickness items, e.g. tea
towels can be ironed at a higher speed.

Useful tips
After ironing
If creases appear on items being
ironed:
Stop the roller and pull the item back
slightly. Smooth it out and if necessary
dampen it with a wet cloth.
^ Switch the ironer off.
Try to use the full width of the roller to
help the roller cover maintain its shape.
For small items, e.g. handkerchiefs,
alternate between using the right and
left hand sides of the roller.
^ Switch off Q "Steam".
^ Set the temperature selector to I.
^ Disconnect the appliance from the
electricity supply by switching off at
the socket and withdrawing the plug.
If the ironer is to be put away:
^ Allow the heater plate to cool down.
Items with raised buttons should be
ironed face down on to the roller so that
they are pressed into the cushioned
surface.
^ Empty the water reservoir.
A cloth should be placed over zips,
metal buttons and hooks to protect the
heater plate during ironing.
^ Cover the ironer.
To protect the heater plate do not iron
very bulky or heat-sensitive buttons.
When you have nearly finished ironing,
you can set the temperature selector to
I and continue ironing small items at a
low temperature.
22
^ Fold the rotary ironer up.
^ Wind up the mains cable.
Do not store the ironer in a room
where there is a risk of frost
occurring. Frozen water can cause
damage to the water reservoir and
steam hose.

If there is a power cut whilst you are
ironing the heater plate will stay in
contact with the roller. This traps the
laundry with the danger of it singeing.
To free the laundry:
^ Pull the emergency release catch
upwards.
– This releases the pressure enabling
the laundry to be pulled forwards
towards you, or downwards off the
roller, depending on how far through
the ironer it had passed.
When power is restored (the On-Off
indicator light will come on) press the
emergency release catch back down.
You can now continue ironing.

Ironing tips
The following tips are intended as
helpful suggestions to get you
started. With practice you will
probably find alternative ways of
ironing which suit your style of
working.
Tea towels, hand towels,
handkerchiefs, serviettes etc.
Place on the ironing table with the
straight grain of the fabric to the feed
board. This will prevent the item going
out of shape and it will be easier to fold.
Handkerchiefs and serviettes can be
fed into the ironer horizontally and then
folded and ironed again if wished.
Use the full width of the roller.
Table cloths
To avoid creases iron the middle
section first.
^ Then pass both sides of the
un-ironed sections through the ironer.
Leave the ironed middle section
hanging over the left hand side of the
roller to prevent creases.
^ After folding, table cloths can be
passed through the ironer again if
wished.
Sheets
Sheets can be ironed in the same way
as table cloths, or if a lengthwise fold is
acceptable they can be folded and
ironed.
Embroidered sections and raised
patterms on linen should be ironed on
the right side first and then from the
reverse.
^ Place the table cloth across the roller
with the ends hanging off either end.
^ Then fold in half.
24
Ironing tips
Duvet covers
Pillow cases
^ First do up poppers and buttons and
feed this end through the ironer first.
Then iron the whole pillow case from
both sides.
Shirts
Remove the feed-in table for ironing
shirts.
Iron in the following order:
^ First do up poppers and buttons.
Feed this end through the left hand
side of the ironer first. Buttons should
face into the roller.
^ Sleeves and cuffs
^ Back
^ Front
^ Collar
^ Iron duvets in two runs lengthwise.
25
Ironing tips
Sleeves and cuffs
Back / shoulder yoke
^ Pull sleeves smooth ready for ironing.
Do not iron the cuff yet.
Shirts with a shoulder yoke:
^ Fold the yoke along the back seam.
^ Iron the sleeves from the cuff seam to
the underarm seam.
^ Iron both sides of each sleeve.
Double cuffs should be folded
(button hole to button hole) and
ironed.
26
^ Place the shirt side on to the roller
and iron from the left shoulder seam
to the collar.
^ Then turn the shirt inside out and iron
from the collar to the right shoulder
seam.
Ironing tips
Back
Front
Iron the back in two sections, from the
middle to the side seams.
The fronts are ironed in one pass
together with the lower section of the
back up to the armhole seam.
^ Start with the front left.
^ Pull the shirt over the roller as far as
the yoke seam - or to the collar seam
on shirts without a yoke - and smooth
it out.
^ Smooth the shirt out and then iron
from the armhole to the collar.
^ Turn the shirt inside out to iron the
other side.
^ Iron from the middle of the back to
the armhole seam. Then iron the rest
of the back as far as the side seam
together with the front section.
Iron the second part of the back as the
first section, but with the shirt inside
out.
27
Ironing tips
Collar
Pyjamas
Pyjamas tops should be ironed
following instructions for shirts. Iron
trouser legs on pyjamas separately.
^ Iron one leg from the front and the
other from the back.
^ Iron from the top to the bottom.
^ Then pull into shape and iron to the
waist. Pull the elasticated section
tight.
Aprons
Iron the collar from both sides. Do not
iron any buttons!
^ Iron any straps as far as the apron
first.
^ Turn the collar and press if wished.
^ Then iron either to the waistband or
across the apron. Leave the bib
hanging over the left hand side of the
roller.
Nightdresses
Iron sleeves, yokes and back on a
nightdress as you would a shirt.
To iron the front:
^ Pull the nightdress over the roller
leaving the sleeves and bodice
hanging over the left hand side of the
roller.
^ Iron starting from the left hand side
seam and finishing at the right hand
side seam. Then adjust the bodice
section on the roller to iron it.
^ If there is a collar follow the
instructions for ironing shirts.
28
Ironing tips
Pressing trousers
^ Press each leg separately. Let the
top of the trousers hang over the
edge of the roller.
^ Cover with a damp cloth and turn the
roller by hand until the trouser leg is
covered by the heater plate.
^ Press to iron, then do the same to the
other trouser leg.
To press skirts
Remove the feed-in table.
^ Pull the skirt over the free end of the
roller as far as the waistband.
^ Cover with a damp cloth.
^ Iron one section at a time.
29
Maintenance and care
,Disconnect the ironer from the
electricity supply by switching off at
the wall socket and withdrawing the
plug before any cleaning and
maintenance work.
Cleaning the heater plate
Limescale deposits and starch residues
can be removed from the heater plate
using a suitable proprietary cleaning
agent. Make sure that the ironer is cold
before cleaning it. It will be easier to
clean if you pull up the emergency
release catch.
Do not use any abrasive cleaning
agents.
Cleaning the casing
Depending on how dirty it is, the casing
can be wiped down with a dry or a
damp cloth.
Do not use any abrasive cleaning
agents.
Cleaning the water reservoir
Limescale deposits in the water reservoir,
caused by hard water, can cause the
steam jets to become blocked. Should
this happen, the limescale deposits can
be removed by rinsing out the water
reservoir with fresh tap water.
^ Disconnect the appliance from the
electricity supply by switching off at
the socket and withdrawing the plug.
,Allow the ironer to cool down
before rinsing out the reservoir.
Depending on the hardness level of
your water supply, the reservoir will
need to be rinsed out with tap water
after every 3 to 10 fills of the reservoir.
Stubborn limescale deposits can be
removed with a proprietary descaling
agent.
Make sure that you follow the
manufacturer's instructions on
dosage, concentration and how long
it should be used for.
^ Fill the water reservoir approximately
half full (0.4 litres) with a solution of
descaling agent and replace the
cap.
^ Roll the ironer backwards and
forwards several times.
^ To prevent the risk of damaging
laundry when next ironing with steam,
the reservoir should be rinsed out
twice with fresh tap water after
descaling it.
For instructions on filling and emptying
the reservoir see "Steam".

Maintenance and care
Ironing cover
The ironing cover is 100% cotton with
woven edges and is wound round the
roller twice for maximum moisture
absorption. When washed it will only
shrink up to a maximum of 6% which
means it can be refitted easily. The
cotton undercloth attached to the roller
prevents the ironing cover from
slipping.
Replacing the ironing cover
,The ironing cover should only be
changed when the appliance is
cold.
^ Removing the feed-in table.
If laundry does not pass sufficiently
smoothly through the roller or if the
cover is badly soiled it can be washed
at 60°C.
After washing, replace the cover whilst
still damp on the cold roller and then
iron it dry.
It is normal for the ironing cover to
become slightly brown with use. If,
however, the cover begins to look very
unsightly, it can be replaced easily.
^ Undo the cords at each end of the
roller cover.
Replacement ironing covers are
available from your Miele dealer or the
Miele Spare Parts Department.
^ Unwind the cover.
31
Maintenance and care
^ Completely unwind the cotton
undercloth attached to the roller and
let it hang down smoothly.
^ Take hold of the cloth by each side
edge and keeping it taut place over
the heater plate.
The slot which holds the cotton
undercloth is now at the top.
32
^ Insert the raw edge of the new
ironing cloth into the retaining slot
with the wrong side down. Leave the
cords hanging free and smooth out
the cloth.
^ Turn the roller by hand in the
direction you iron (see arrow) until the
cover retaining slot is at the bottom.
Maintenance and care
^ Switch on the ironer.
When the ironer is switched on, the
heater plate heats up immediately.
The temperature selector must be
turned to the l setting.
After the roller has gone through three
or four revolutions and the end of the
ironing cover is under the heater plate:
^ Switch off the ironer while keeping
the foot pedal pressed down.
The ironing cover is held firmly in
place by the heater plate which is still
lowered.
^ Press the foot pedal and "iron" the
cloth into position.
Do not let the cords get under the cloth
as it turns.
^ Tighten the cords at the left and right
hand sides of the roller, tie together
and tuck in.
^ Put the feed-in table back in place.
^ Switch the rotary ironer on - the
heater plate will rise up.
