M.-Nr. 05 567 240 /03
Preparing the laundry
Condition of linen
For a good finish the ideal residual moisture
level lies between 25-50%.
If the laundry is rinsed with hot water in the
final rinse, the residual heat in the laundry,
together with the reduced residual moisture
content, will lead to shorter processing times
and save energy.
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 lower
temperature.
Metal and plastic buckles and very bulky
buttons should not be passed through the
ironer.
Note!
Clean the flatwork ironer before using for
the first time by passing through a cloth
along the entire length of the roller.
Preparing the flatwork
Before starting to iron, laundry should be
sorted according to size and type of fabric.
First iron articles made from:
Perlon, nylon etc. (approx. 100 °C)
then
Woollens, silks
(approx. 150 °C)
and then
Cottons, linen fabrics
(approx. 180 - 200 °C).
If you want to switch back to ironing at a
lower temperature, turn the selector
anti-clockwise and wait until the ! Heating
indicator light comes on.
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
downwards 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.

12
M.-Nr. 05 567 240 /03
Ironing
After ironing
The ironed laundry can be very hot when
it comes out of the ironer. Wear gloves to
protect your hands.
In pauses between ironing, withdraw the
heater plate and reduce the temperature.
^ After ironing let the roller run for approx. 5
minutes on the lowest temperature setting
to let the roller covering dry out.
Warning:
The finger guard will be very hot if the ironer
is switched off after being run at the
maximum temperature setting.
^ Press s to switch the machine on.
Baffle – exhaust ducting
A baffle is built into the exhaust ducting
which can be used to adjust the amount of
air flowing through the roller covering.
To open the baffle fully:
Turn the hexagonal screw (SW 19) in an
anti-clockwise direction as far as it will go.
To close the baffle:
Turn the hexagonal screw (SW 19) in
clockwise direction as far as it will go.
^ Switch off the electricity supply to the
machine.
^ On rotary ironers without an integrated
compressor: Turn off the on-site
compressed air stopcock.
,Allow the ironed laundry to cool down
before packing or storing it. Hot laundry
could self-ignite and cause a fire.
The ideal setting is reached when the roller
dries out sufficiently to leave no water spots
either on the covering or on flatwork with the
lowest throughput of air.
If the air throughput is too high, the roller will
cool down too much, thus reducing the
ironer’s performance.
Pick-off bands
The pick-off bands are used for picking
laundry off the roller. Laundry does not need
to be removed manually from the roller. If
one of the pick-off bands is dislocated by a
piece of laundry, it should be pushed back
into position manually.

plate. Not doing this can reduce the life of
the roller cover and of 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 winding is heated excessively due to
overload, the motor is switched off
automatically by a winding thermostat. The
heater plate is withdrawn. Once the ironer
has cooled down, it will need to be switched
on again by pressing the h Start button.

M.-Nr. 05 567 240 /03
Cleaning and care
Regular cleaning of the heater plate is
essential for the protection of the motor and
the roller cover, and helps to prolong the life
of the machine.
Waxing the heater plate
To maintain the smooth surface of the heater
plate it must be waxed on a regular basis
with an ironer waxing cloth. Not waxing the
heater plate sufficiently can lead to
problems with the roller drive motor.
When cleaning the heater plate, select the
lowest temperature setting and the slowest
roller speed.
A special ironer cleaning cloth and wax can
be ordered from the Miele Spare Parts
Department.
Cleaning the heater plate
Limescale and starch deposits can stick to
the heater plate. The heater plate therefore
needs to be cleaned 1-3 times a week,
depending on the degree of soiling.
For light soiling, clean with Cleanpaste on a
wax cloth.
For heavier soiling, use a cleaning cloth
together with a cleaning mat.
The heater plate should always be waxed
after it has been cleaned.
Wax
Sprinkle the special wax into the centre of a
thin piece of cloth.
Direction of feed
Do not use abrasive cleaning agents or
abrasive cleaning cloths.
See the Miele Ironing Handbook for more
details.
Pick-off bands
If you want to clean the pick-off bands or the
roller covering, re-cover the roller or iron for
a short period without using the pick-off
bands this attachment can be raised
upright.
The tips of the pick-off bands need to be
cleaned occasionally to remove the build-up
of residues such as starch. Regular cleaning
ensures smooth operation.
Fold over the ends, then run the cloth
through the ironer as if it were an item of
laundry. Keep the folded ends of the cloth
towards the roller.
Feed the cloth into the machine repeatedly,
moving along the whole width of the roller
from left to right.
When waxing the heater plate select a
temperature setting between 180 - 200 °C
and the slowest roller speed.

Cleaning and care
Gearbox
The gearbox has sufficient lubricant for
many years of use.
Contact the Service Dept. for maintenance
and lubrication.
,After maintenance work any
removable outer panels must be put back
in place, and all moving or electrical parts
shielded before the machine is switched
on.
Emptying the compressor
Ironers with an integrated compressor have
to have the pressurised reservoir regularly
emptied of condensed water.
Depending on individual circumstances and
the humidity level of the room in which the
ironer is installed, this will need to be done
at least twice a year.
Refer to the operating and maintenance
instructions supplied with the compressor for
instructions on how to do this.

Cleaning and care
Leaf-type roller padding
To ensure smooth functioning of the ironer
and high capacity ironing, low maintenance
and long life, the leaf-type padding should
be covered with the specially made roller
cover.
Laundry
feed-in
Cloth end
Cloth
leading
edge
,Only iron articles up to max. 3mm
thick. Bulky fabrics, protruding buttons,
curtain weights etc. could damage the
leaf-type padding.
After commissioning
It is advisable approx. 40 operating hours
after commissioning to cut back the overlap
of the ironing cover which has occurred
through stretching, to about 50 mm overlap
and then to brush out about 50 mm of this
using a wire brush. This is to avoid damp
streaks and shadowing. The roller cover
must be the same thickness along the whole
length of the roller and fit firmly up to the
heater plate.
^ Use the Forwards run Ü or Reverse run
Ä button to turn the roller until the end of
the ironing cover is visible at the feed-out
side of the roller.
Washing the roller cover
Washing will remove any wax deposits and
restore the ironing cover to a softer, more
elastic and absorbent condition. It should,
however, be washed as infrequently as
possible in a Cottons 95°C programme. The
cover should be completely alkali free after
the last rinse.
Do not treat with acidic agents. Do not spin
at too high a speed to avoid the danger of
creasing.
Removing the ironer cloth
^ Turn the end of the ironing cover to the
feed-in side.
^ Press the Reverse run Ä button and let
the cloth roll out.
^ When removing the ironing cover pull
slowly and carefully away from the
grippers on the leaf-type padding.
^ Raise the pick-off attachment upright.
^ Press s to switch the machine on.
^ Select the slowest speed setting.

Cleaning and care
Fitting the ironing cover on a roller with
leaf-type padding
If a new ironing cover is being fitted it
should first be washed in a Cottons 95 °C
programme.
,After changing the ironer cloth
The finger guard must be retested for
safety.
If it is not working correctly contact the
Service department.
The ironing cover should be wound back on
when still damp.
A double layer is wound on to the roller in
one operation. Do not tuck in the cloth at the
ends of the roller.
Discolouration of the ironer cloth
^ Raise the pick-off attachment upright.
To avoid the cloth turning black:
^ Place the cloth in position.
– always use the complete width of the
roller.
^ Switch on the machine by pressing s.
^ Select the slowest speed setting, press the
"Forwards run Ü" button and feed the
ironing cloth in, following the laundry feed
direction, until it lies smooth and flat. This
is to ensure that the heater plate does not
get damaged by the grippers on the
leaf-type padding.
Some discolouration of the ironer cloth from
light to dark brown is normal.
– space out smaller items and do not always
place them in the same place.
– In pauses between ironing, withdraw the
heater plate and reduce the temperature.
^ Then turn the temperature selector
anti-clockwise to the lowest setting.
^ Press the Start h button.
^ When the ! heating indicator light has
gone out, press the Start h button again.
The heater plate moves up to the roller and
the roller starts turning.
^ Feed in the second layer. The ironing cloth
must have no creases in it. Let the roller
rotate for about 5 minutes.
It is advisable approx. 40 operating hours
after first using a new ironing cover to cut
back the overlap of the cover which has
occurred through stretching, to about 50 mm
overlap and then to brush out about 50 mm
of this using a wire brush.
This is to avoid damp streaks and
shadowing. The roller cover must be the
same thickness along the whole length of
the roller and fit firmly up to the heater plate.

Notes for the installer
Setting up the machine
The rotary ironer may only be
commissioned by a Miele service
technician or Miele authorised Service
Dealer.
This machine must not be operated in the
same room as dry cleaning machines which
use solvents containing perchlorethylene
(PER) or chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). On
combustion, the escaping vapours are
decomposed to form hydrochloric acid
which can have dangerous consequences.
The machine must be transported to its
installation site with the transport struts in
position. Maintain the safety distances from
walls as specified on the installation
diagram. Dismantle the sides from both side
stands and remove the screws from the
wooden frame.
Transport struts
To lift the machine use the square pipe
supplied (see illustration). Slide the square
pipe into the holder in the side stand and lift.
If necessary place planks of wood under the
stands as a safety precaution when lifting
the machine. Do not lift the ironer any higher
than is necessary.
Parts 1 to 5 are wooden struts, screwed in
position to protect the machine during
transportation. They must not be removed
until the machine has been moved to the site
where it will be installed.
,The machine must not be moved
without the transit struts in place.
Store the transit struts in a safe place for
future use. They must be re-fitted if the
machine is to be moved again (e.g. when
moving location).
M.-Nr. 05 567 240 /03
,Do not reach underneath the machine.
Danger of injury.
Pull the wooden frame away from under the
machine.
Remove the planks from under the stands
very carefully one by one.
Using the installation diagram supplied drill
holes for the plugs (supplied in the
accessory pack) into the floor at the correct
distance from the wall. Insert the plugs.

Notes for the installer
Levelling and securing the ironer
Electrical connection
Use a spirit level and adjuster panels to
align the machine.
The ironer should be secured to the floor
using the screws and washers supplied in
the accessories pack.
The electrical connection may only be
carried out by a suitably qualified technician
in accordance with local and national safety
regulations.
,It is essential to secure the machine to
the floor, as it could tip up if too much
laundry was placed on the out-tabling.
Attaching the out-tabling
The two support brackets for the out-tabling
on the inside of the end stands should each
be secured with 2, M 8 screws supplied.
The out-tabling is then placed on the
brackets and levelled so that the gap
between the feed-out edge of the roller and
the out tabling is as small as possible.
Secure the out-tabling with the wood screws
provided.
The electrical components on the machine
conform to EN 60204-1.
The machine is supplied ex-works for AC 3N
50 Hz. See data plate for details.
Connection to the electrical supply must
be carried out in accordance with the
wiring diagram, installation diagram and
installation instructions supplied. These
are important to ensure the machine is
connected correctly.
The machine must be connected to a
permanent on-site electricity supply with a
suitable cable.
The wiring diagram and connection box are
located in the left hand side stand. The
mains cable terminals are located in the
connection box.
Warning:
Make sure that the exhaust fan is turning in
the correct direction (see directional arrow
on the fan). If it turns in the wrong direction,
2 phases have to be changed.

Notes for the installer
External compressed air
connection
The compressed air connection point is
located at the rear of the right hand side
stand.
Compressor
Ironers with an integrated compressor
If the compressed air container is empty the
ironer’s lifting motor will not work. The
pressure reducer on the compressor (see
also instructions for use and maintenance of
the compressor) will therefore need to be
closed (set to 0) when comissioning the
machine, until the pressure container is full.
The manometer on the pressure container
will then show a reading of approx. 8 bar.
The pressure reducer can then be opened
as far as it will go again (to 8).
Exhaust ducting (exhaust
extraction) with electrically heated
rollers
The exhaust ducting stub C100 mm is
located at the rear of the right hand stand.
Make sure that the extraction fan is turning in
the correct direction.
See installation diagram and installation
instructions supplied.
,After setting up and connecting the
machine ensure that all outer casing parts
are correctly fitted back into position.
