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.

Warning and safety instructions
This vacuum cleaner meets statutory
safety requirements. Improper use
can, however, lead to personal injury
and damage to property.
To avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the vacuum cleaner,
please read these instructions

time. They contain important
information on its safety, use and
maintenance.
Keep these instructions in a safe
place and ensure new users are

cleaner from the mains supply when
you have finished using it, as well as
for maintenance work and cleaning.

manufacturer and could be dangerous.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage
resulting from incorrect or improper use
or operation of the appliance.
~ This appliance is not intended for
use by persons (including children)
with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of
experience or knowledge, unless they
are supervised whilst using it, or have
been shown how to use it by a person
responsible for their safety.
Safety with children

the risk of injury, keep children well
away, and do not allow them to play
with it or to use the controls. Supervise
children whilst you are using it.

wet. Clean only with a dry cloth or
slightly damp cloth when disconnected
from the mains supply. If moisture gets
into the appliance, there is a risk of

~ While the vacuum cleaner is under
guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a service technician
authorised by Miele. Otherwise the
guarantee will be invalidated.
Correct use
~ Repairs should only be carried out
~ Never touch the Electrobrush roller

be held liable for unauthorised work.
~ Do not pull or carry the vacuum
cleaner by the cable.
Keep the cable away from sharp edges
and do not let it be squashed, for
example, under a door.
Avoid running the vacuum cleaner over
the cable.

while it is rotating. Danger of injury.
~ To avoid the risk of damage, do not
use the vacuum cleaner without the
dustbag, dust compartment filter and
exhaust filter in place.
~ If a dustbag is not inserted, the dust
compartment cover does not normally
close. Do not force it.
~ Do not vacuum up any water, liquid
or damp dirt. This will cause major
faults and could seriously impair the
functioning and electrical safety of the
appliance. Wait until any freshly
cleaned or shampooed carpets or floor
coverings are completely dry before
attempting to vacuum.
~ Do not vacuum toner dust. Toner,
such as that used in printers and
photocopiers, can conduct electricity.
The filter system in the vacuum cleaner
may not filter it completely, causing the
toner to be blown back into the room by
the fan.

Warning and safety instructions
~ Do not vacuum up any inflammable
or combustible liquids or gases and do
not vacuum in areas where such
substances are stored. The cleaner
might explode.
~ Do not vacuum up anything which
has been burning or is still glowing e.g.
cigarettes, ashes or coal, whether
glowing or apparently extinguished.
The cleaner might catch fire.
~ Do not vacuum up items which are
heavy, hard or have sharp edges. They
could cause a blockage and damage
the appliance.
~ Do not use the suction hose or
telescopic tube at head level to avoid
the risk of injury, e.g. to eyes and ears.
~ Do not use the Electrobrush at head
level. Danger of injury.
~ Do not vacuum near items such as
curtains, scarves, clothing etc, as these
could be vacuumed in and become
entangled in the roller.
~ Monitor the change dustbag
indicator and change the dustbag if
necessary. Check the exhaust and dust
compartment filters at the same time
and change them too if necessary. A
full bag or blocked filter will reduce the
suction power of the cleaner. A
temperature limiter switches the
vacuum cleaner off automatically if it
gets too hot. See "Problem solving
guide".
Accessories
Miele accessories including
floorheads, filters and dustbags are
available to order from your Miele
retailer, the Miele Spare Parts
Department or via the internet on
www.miele-shop.com.
~ It is not advisable to vacuum directly
with the handle, i.e. without an
accessory attached, as the rim could
get damaged and you could hurt
yourself on sharp edges.
~ Miele dustbags are disposable and
intended to be used only once. Do not
attempt to re-use, as suction would be
reduced by the blocked pores.
~ Use only genuine Miele dustbags,
filters and accessories. This will ensure
optimum performance of the appliance
throughout its life.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and safety instructions.
