Caring for the environment
Disposal of packing material
Disposal of your old appliance
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
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.
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.
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please recycle them.

Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ To avoid the risk of damage, do not
use the vacuum cleaner without the
dustbag, dust compartment filter and
exhaust filter in place. Otherwise it
could get damaged.
~ 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.
~ 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 any inflammable
or combustible liquids or gases and do
not vacuum in areas where such
substances are stored. The cleaner
might explode.

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. Make sure that you keep
your hand in constant contact with
this metal strip during vacuuming.

Maintenance and care
,Always disconnect the vacuum
cleaner from the electricity supply
for maintenance work and for
cleaning. Switch off at the wall
socket and remove the plug.
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)
To ensure that your vacuum cleaner
functions correctly, cleans
hygienically and gives you many
years of trouble-free operation,
please only use genuine Miele
approved dustbags and filters. The
use of non-Miele approved dusbags
and accessories could invalidate
your warranty and cause damage to
your product.
Purchasing new dustbags and
filters
Replacement dustbags and filters can
be obtained from your Chartered
Agent, the Miele Spare Parts
Department (see back cover for contact
details) or via the internet on
www.miele-shop.com.
Ordering the correct dustbags
and filters
When ordering dustbags for this
vacuum cleaner, ask for bags with the
code F/J/M.
A Super Air Clean filter and a dust
compartment filter are supplied with
every packet of Miele dustbags.
If you wish to purchase exhaust filters
or dust compartment filters separately,
please quote the model number of your
appliance when ordering to ensure you
get the correct items.
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").

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 for single use only.
Do not attempt to re-use 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. Normal
household dust would contain a mixture
of dust, hair, carpet fluff, threads, grit
etc.
However, if the vacuum cleaner has
been used to suck up fine dust, 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 lot 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.

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.
^ To remove the dustbag, hold the bag
by the collar and pull it out of its
holder.
The dustbag has a closing flap which
closes automatically when the dustbag
is removed to prevent any dust
escaping.
^ Fit the new dustbag into the holder as
far as it will go. Leave it folded up
when you take it out of the box.
^ Close the dust compartment lid
securely, making sure it clicks into
position. Take care not to trap the
dustbag when doing so.

Optional accessories
Active Air Clean filter
A special active charcoal filter, which
removes odours coming from the dirt in
the dustbag, keeping unpleasant
lingering smells to a minimum.
The Active Air Clean filter replaces the
filter fitted in the vacuum cleaner.
There is no difference in the filtration
levels between the Active Air Clean
filter and the Super Air Clean filter.
Active HEPA filter
A combination filter which complies to
the requirements of EN 1822 HEPA
Classification 12. It is able to filter out
very fine particles and
micro-organisms. The active charcoal
layer absorbs odours from the dust
collected in the dustbag.
This filter is especially appropriate for
allergy sufferers and users requiring
exceptional standards of hygiene.
The Active HEPA filter replaces the filter
fitted in the vacuum cleaner.
Do not use aroma capsules in your
cleaner if you use either of these
filters. The charcoal in them will
absorb their aroma, rendering them
ineffective.
Filter grille
The filter grille is required if you wish to
fit a Super Air Clean filter instead of an
Active Air Clean filter or an Active HEPA
filter (see "Maintenance and care When to change the exhaust filter").
