Warning and safety instructions
Read the operating instructions before
using this machine for the first time. This
way you will avoid the risk of accidents
and damage to the machine.
Correct usage
Only iron materials with this ironer which
are suitable for machine ironing and
which were washed in water.
If the ironer is used in a publically
accessible room, it is the supervisor's
responsibility to ensure that operators are
able to use it safely.
Technical and electrical safety
This machine must not be operated in the
same room as dry cleaning machines
which use solvents containing PERs or CFCs.
The ironer should only be used in a room
with a low relative humidity level.
Any removable outer panels must be
back in place, and all moving or
electrical parts shielded before the machine
is switched on.
Do not damage, remove or bypass the
safety features, fixtures and control
elements of the machine.
Do not use a machine with damaged
controls or with damaged cables. These
must be repaired before it is used again.
Repairs to the machine should only be
undertaken by a suitably qualified
service engineer to ensure safety.
Unauthorised repairs could be dangerous.
Faulty components must only be
exchanged for Miele original spare parts.
Only when these parts are fitted can the
safety standards of the machine be
guaranteed.
The electrical safety of this appliance
can only be guaranteed when continuity
is complete between the appliance and an
effective earthing system which complies
with local and national regulations. It is most
important that this basic safety requirement
is regularly tested and where there is any
doubt the on-site electrical system must be
inspected by a qualified electrician. The
4
manufacturer can not be held liable for the
consequences of an inadequate earthing
system.
The machine is only completely isolated
from the electricity supply either when it
is switched off at the wall isolator or when
the mains fuse is disconnected at the
distribution board.
Use
This ironer must not be left unattended
during use.
Never allow children to play on or near
the rotary ironer, or to operate it
themselves.

reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience or
knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning its use
by a person responsible for their safety.
When the ironer is heated up with the
heater plate in position, there is an acute
danger of burning, if the edge of the heater
plate is touched on the feed-out side.
When ironing double layered items do
not reach in between the layers to
straighten out the fabric. This is extremely
dangerous as you may not be able to extract
your hands on time. The same applies when
ironing garments with pockets.
Ensure the room in which the ironer is
being used is sufficiently lit.
Always keep a fire extinguisher
accessible in the rare event of textiles
igniting.

Sorting the laundry
Condition of linen
For a good finish the ideal residual moisture
level needs to be about 25 %.
Rinsing the laundry using hot water in the
final rinse helps to reduce the residual
moisture level and the residual heat in the
laundry will help keep processing time
down, thus saving energy.
Metal and plastic buckles and very bulky
buttons should not be passed through the
ironer.
Warning
Before using the ironer you should clean
the heater plate by running a cloth
through the entire width of the roller.
Laundry with a synthetic fibre content
greater than 50% (e.g. Dralon) must not
be ironed as the high temperatures would
melt the fabric. Laundry with a lower
synthetic content can be ironed at a low
temperature.
Preparing the laundry
Before starting to iron, laundry should be
sorted according to size and type of fabric.
First iron articles made from:
perlon, nylon etc. ß - low temperature
Then iron
Woollens and silks ßß - medium temperature
Then iron
Cottons and linens ßßß - high temperature.
If you want to switch back to ironing at a
lower temperature, reduce the temperature
setting and then wait until the "Temperature"
indicator light comes on again.
Starched laundry should be ironed last to
prevent any starch residues on the heater
plate from affecting other items of laundry.
Items with buttons should be passed
through the ironer with the buttons facing
into the roller padding. If they face upwards
there is a danger of them being damaged or
torn off when the item is passed through the
ironer.
A cloth should be placed over zips, metal
buttons and hooks to protect the heater
plate during ironing.

Important notes
Protecting the roller motor and cover
In pauses between ironing and when you
have finished ironing, disengage the heater
plate. This helps prolong the life of the roller
cover and protects the motor.
It is very important to avoid running the
ironer without passing laundry through it.
Do not restrict ironing smaller articles to any
one part of the roller; make use of the whole
roller width. This way an equal amount of
heat is obtained from the heater plate and
the roller padding is protected from uneven
use.
Motor protection
If the motor winding is heated excessively
due to overload, the motor is switched off
automatically by a winding thermostat and
the heater plate is disengaged.
Once the ironer has cooled down, it can be
restarted by pressing the I button.
M.-Nr. 06 017 102
13
Cleaning and care
Regular cleaning and maintenance of the
heater plate is essential for the protection of
the motor and the roller cover. This also
helps to prolong the life of the machine.
Important: please also read the notes on
ironing and on cleaning and care given in
the separate Ironing Handbook.
Waxing the heater plate
To maintain the smooth surface of the heater
plate it should be waxed on a regular basis
with an ironer waxing cloth.
When waxing or cleaning the heater plate,
select temperature setting ßßß and the
slowest roller speed.
Wax
Waxing cloths and wax should only be
ordered from the Miele Spare Parts
Department.
Cleaning the heater plate
The aluminium heater plate must only be
cleaned using cleaning agents approved by
the manufacturer.
Because limescale and starch deposits can
stick to the heater plate, it should to be
cleaned 2-3 times a week, depending on the
degree of soiling.
Light soiling can be removed using
Cleanpaste on a cloth and ironing it at the
slowest speed on the ßßß temperature
setting.
More stubborn deposits can be removed
using a cleaning cloth together with a
cleaning mat at the slowest speed and on
the lowest temperature setting.
The heater plate should always be waxed
after it has been cleaned.
,Do not use abrasive cleaning agents
or abrasive cleaning cloths.
See the Miele Ironing Handbook for more
details.
Direction of feed
^ To apply wax with the wax cloth, place
some granular wax in the pouch of the wax
cloth, close the pouch and feed the cloth
through the ironer at 180 °C with the
non-rubberised side facing the heater
plate. Use the wax sparingly to avoid the
roller cover becoming too smooth.
Never feed the wax cloth into the rotary
ironer with the rubberised side facing the
heater plate.
^ Feed the cloth into the machine
repeatedly, moving along the whole width
of the roller from left to right.

Cleaning and care
Discolouration of the roller cover
Some discolouration of the roller cover from
light to dark brown is normal.
To avoid the cover turning black:
– Always use the complete width of the
roller.
– Space out smaller items, and do not
always iron them in the same place.
– In pauses between ironing, disengage the
heater plate and reduce the temperature.
Washing the roller cover
If possible, do not wash the roller cover if it
is only a little discoloured. Slight yellowing is
normal. If the cover is heavily soiled, wash it
using a Cottons 95 °C programme and
replace it while still damp.
Pick-off bands
The tips of the pick-off bands need to be
cleaned occasionally to remove the build-up
of residues such as starch. To do this,
remove the pick-off bands and wash them in
hot water. Regular cleaning ensures smooth
operation.
Switch on the ironer by pressing the I button,
engage the heater plate by pressing the O
button, and the cover will be drawn in.
When removing and replacing the roller
cover, bits of steel wool will drop onto the
ironing table. These should be removed
immediately.
If a gap develops between the underside of
the heater plate and the roller (where
laundry emerges after ironing), the cover will
need to be wound on again.
Renewal of the steel wool roller padding
should only be carried out by a Miele
authorised service engineer.
When the roller has been fitted with a new or
replacement cover/padding, the total
circumference must not be less than 780
mm or exceed 790 mm.
By keeping within these measurements, the
new cover/padding will cover the whole
length of the roller evenly.
When replacing the cover/padding, check
whether any moving components need
lubricating, and whether the carbon brushes
in the motor need replacing.
Roller cover
Before removing the roller cover (for
cleaning or replacement), the machine must
be switched off. Allow the heater plate to
cool down, and remove the feed-in table.
Remove the pick-off bands from the roller
one at a time.
Switch on the ironer by pressing the I button,
and disengage the heater plate by pressing
the P button.
Depress the foot control to the 2nd foot
control position, and remove the roller cover
whilst the roller is rotating backwards.
Replacing the roller cover
Make sure the ironer is switched off and the
heater plate disengaged.
This should only be carried out by a Miele
service technician.
After sales service
In the case of faults, please contact the
Miele Service Department.
The Service Department will need to know
the model and serial number of your
machine, both of which are given on the
data plate.
Only use spare parts supplied by the
manufacturer (the model and serial number
of your machine will be required).
Place the roller cover parallel to the roller.

Important notes for the installer
The rotary ironer must be commissioned
by a Miele authorised service technician.
This machine must not be operated in the
same room as dry cleaning machines which
use solvents containing PERs or CFCs.
Escaping vapours could ignite on the motor
and form hydrochloric acid which can have
dangerous consequences.
To ensure optimum flow, the ducting should
be laid with as few bends as possible and all
connections and joins should be airtight.
The connection point for the exhaust ducting
is located at the rear of the right hand
column.
Installing the machine
The rotary ironer must be transported on its
wooden base to its installation site. Take it off
the wooden base at the installation site.

a spirit level.
Exhaust ducting for vapour
extraction
Refer to the "Calculation of air outlet, air inlet
and ventilation cross sections" booklet.
The exhaust ducting to be installed on site
must not be directed into any chimney which
is used by gas, solid fuel or oil fired
appliances. It must also be kept separate
from any exhaust system leading from a
tumble dryer.
The warm, moist exhaust air should be
discharged to the outside air by the shortest
route possible.
M.-Nr. 06 017 102
To prevent the build-up of condensation in
an upward sloping exhaust ducting, a 3-5
mm ø condensate drain should be fitted at
the lowest point.
The ducting must have an internal diameter
of 70 mm.
Ensure that there is sufficient ventilation in
the room where the ironer is installed.
If the exhaust is ducted into the outside air,
the end of the duct should be protected
against the weather.
An exhaust system ducted into the open air
must be situated in such a way that it does
not cause a nuisance.
The on-site ducting system and the exit point
to the outside must be checked on a regular
basis for a build-up of fluff and cleaned, if
required.
