The handle can also be fitted directly to
the vacuum cleaner housing.
This allows for easier vacuuming of
upholstered furniture, mattresses, etc.
10
Assembling the vacuum cleaner
Connecting the standard floor
brush
^ Insert the lower tube of the vacuum
cleaner into the standard floor brush
and gently turn until it locks into
place.
Removing the standard floor
brush
^ To remove the floor brush press and
hold the release button (see arrow)
while gently pulling the standard floor
brush off.
You can also attach the suction wand to
the nozzle of the vacuum cleaner.
This makes it easier to clean under
furniture that is close to the floor.
Winding up the power cord
When the vacuum cleaner is not in use
the power cord can be wound around
the two cord hooks.
To prevent the cord from unwinding,
press the cord into the cable clip (see
detail).
11
Using the included accessories
The vacuum cleaner includes the
following accessories:
a Accessory clip
(depending on model)
b Crevice nozzle
For cleaning in folds, crevices and
corners.
c Upholstery nozzle
For cleaning upholstered furniture,
mattresses, cushions, curtains, etc.
Accessory clip
(standard on some models)
^ If needed attach the accessory clip
to the extension / telescopic wand a.
^ Push the accessory clip over the
cord hook ring b.
The accessory clip stores the supplied
crevice nozzle and upholstery nozzle.
12
Use
Unwinding the power cord
The lower cord hook rotates.
^ Turn the cord hook upwards to
remove the power cord.
Adjusting the telescopic wand
(depending on model)
One piece of the telescopic wand is
stored inside the other and can be
adjusted to suit your height for
comfortable vacuum cleaning.
^ Press the telescopic wand release
button (see arrow) to release the
tubes and adjust to the required
height.
Plugging the vacuum cleaner
in
^ Plug the vacuum cleaner in.
^ While vacuuming, hang the cord over
the hook on the handle (see insert).
The power cord will be guided so that it
does not hinder vacuuming. It also
prevents it kinking at the connection to
the vacuum cleaner.
13
Use
Turning the vacuum cleaner on
and off
There are two slide switches located on
the handle to turn the vacuum cleaner
on and off easily whether the vacuum
cleaner is used upright or horizontally.
Either of these slide switches can be
used to operate the vacuum cleaner.

^ To turn the vacuum cleaner on, slide
either switch to max.
^ To turn the vacuum cleaner off, push
the slide switch to 0 until it clicks.
Select min. for vacuuming light weight
items such as throw rugs or curtains.
Adjusting the suction
(depending on model)
Some models have an adjustable suction
control that allows you to optimize the
vacuum cleaner’s performance to meet
different cleaning needs. By reducing the
suction you reduce the force on the rug
and floor tool considerably.
The suction can be adjusted to the
amount of dirt and the type of material
that will be vacuumed.
Lightly soiled or smooth flooring can be
vacuumed at a middle setting. Carpets or
heavy mats can be vacuumed at the
highest setting in order to remove deep
seated dirt.
The highest setting should also be
used if a Turbobrush is connected to
the vacuum cleaner.
14
Use
Adjusting the rug and floor
tool to the floor type
The rug and floor tool has been
designed to give excellent cleaning
results on either carpeted or smooth
floors. For other floor coverings, we
recommend the use of special Miele
brushes (see "Optional Accessories").
It is important, however, to observe
the cleaning and care instructions of
the floor covering manufacturer.
Vacuum carpets and rugs with
recessed bristle strip:
^ Press the foot switch to the %
position.
Vacuum smooth floors with exposed
bristle strip:
^ Press the foot switch to the )
position.
Always vacuum floors with very
deep seams or gaps with the rug
and floor tool with exposed bristle
strip.
15
Parking and storing the vacuum cleaner
There is a non-skid rubber bumper on
the vacuum cleaner handle. This allows
the vacuum cleaner to be leaned
upright against a wall if desired.
Before leaving the vacuum cleaner
make sure it is turned off and
leaning against a wall at a safe
angle.
To protect the bristle rings on the rug
and floor tool, we suggest hanging the
vacuum cleaner up.
For storage you can hang up the
vacuum cleaner easily. There is a hole
for this located on the handle.
16
Maintenance
,Always turn off and unplug the
vacuum cleaner before performing
any maintenance work.
The Miele filter system consists of three
components.
a Filter bag
b Dust compartment filter
c Exhaust filter
Each of these components must be
changed periodically to maintain the
vacuum cleaner’s efficiency.
Only use Miele filter bags, filters and
accessories with the "Original Miele"
logo. Only then can the suction
power of the vacuum cleaner reach
its optimum potential creating the
best possible cleaning results.
,The use of filter bags made of
paper or a similar material, or filter
bags with a cardboard retaining
plate can lead to serious damage to
the vacuum cleaner and possibly
voiding the warranty, just as with the
use of filter bags without the
"Original Miele" logo.
17
Maintenance
Purchasing filter bags and
filters
Which filter bags and filters
are the right ones?
Original Miele filter bags and filters can
be purchased from an authorized Miele
vacuum dealer or by visiting the Miele
store at http://store.miele.com.
Original Miele filter bags with yellow
retaining plate Type K/K and Original
Miele filters, have the "Original Miele"
logo on the packaging or directly on the
filter bags.
An "Air clean" exhaust filter and a dust
compartment filter are supplied with
every box of Miele filter bags.
If you would like to purchase additional
Miele filters separately, contact your
vacuum dealer or Miele, please quote
the model number of your Miele
vacuum cleaner to ensure correct parts
are ordered. These parts are also
available to order from the online Miele
store.
The exhaust filter supplied with the
vacuum cleaner can be exchanged
with another type of Original Miele filter
(see "Exchanging exhaust filters").
18
Maintenance
When to change the filter bag
Change the filter bag when the colored
marker in the filter bag change
indicator is completely red.
Miele dust bags are disposable.
Dispose of full filter bags. Do not
attempt to reuse.
Blocked pores reduce the suction of
the vacuum cleaner.
Checking the filter bag change
indicator
^ Attach the rug and floor tool to the
vacuum cleaner. Other attachments
can affect the function of the filter
bag change indicator.
^ Turn the vacuum cleaner on and
select the highest power setting.
^ Lift the floor brush slightly off the
floor. If the marker completely fills
the indicator window, the filter bag
needs to be changed.
How the filter bag change indicator
works
The filter bag change indicator is
designed to show when the bag is full
of common household dust and
measures the amount of air flow
through the filter bag. Normal
household dust is a mixture of dust,
hair, carpet fluff, threads, sand, etc.
However, if fine dust, such as drill dust,
sand, plaster or flour is vacuumed, the
pores of the filter bag may become
blocked. The marker will indicate that
the bag is "full" even when it is not. The
filter bag should be changed as the
suction power is greatly reduced.
If the bag is bulging with pet fur, hair,
carpet fluff, etc. the indicator may not
register "full". This is because the air
flow of the filter bag may still be high
enough not to activate the marker to
show maximum. The filter bag should
still be changed.
19
Maintenance
How to change the dust bag
^ Press the dust compartment release
button, raise the lid until it clicks into
place.
^ Grasp the collar by the two finger
holes, move it away from the suction
nozzle and pull it out from the filter
bag holder.
The filter bag has a flap which closes
automatically to prevent dust from
escaping when the filter bag is
removed.
^ Insert the new filter bag as far as it
will go into the yellow filter bag
holder. Do not unfold the filter bag
when taking it out of the box.
^ Unfold the filter bag in the dust
compartment as far as possible.
^ Close the dust compartment lid until
it clicks into place. Take care not to
jam the filter bag in the lid.
,A no-bag demobilizer blocks the
dust compartment lid from closing if
no filter bag is inserted or if it is not
inserted all the way. Do not force it
closed.
20
Maintenance

plastics.
,Do not use abrasive, glass, all
purpose or oil based cleaners!
Dust compartment
The dust compartment can, if
necessary, be cleaned using a dry
cloth, dusting brush or a second
vacuum cleaner to remove any dust.
,Do not submerge the vacuum
cleaner in water. If moisture gets into
the vacuum cleaner there is the risk
of electric shock.
26
Frequently asked questions
The vacuum cleaner shuts off
automatically.
If the vacuum cleaner has overheated
the temperature limiter will
automatically turn the vacuum cleaner
off.
This can occur if, for instance, large
articles block the suction tube or when
the filter bag is full or contains particles
of fine dust. A heavily soiled exhaust or
dust compartment filter can also be the
cause of overheating. In this case, turn
the vacuum cleaner off and unplug it
from the outlet.
After eliminating the cause and a wait
of about 20 - 30 minutes, the vacuum
cleaner has cooled enough that you
can turn it on and use it again.
27
