Caring for the environment
Disposal of packing material
The packing material protects the
vacuum cleaner from transport
damage. The transport and protective
packing has been selected from
materials which are environmentally
friendly for disposal and can normally
be recycled.
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
offered for recycling. Sort packing
materials for disposal according to the
type of material (e.g. plastics or
cardboard).
Disposing of your old
appliance
Before disposing of your old appliance,
remove the dustbag and filter and
dispose of them with the 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.
Disposing of the dustbag and
filters
These are made from environmentally
friendly materials, and can be disposed
of with the normal household waste, as
long as they have been used
exclusively for general household dust.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection/recycling
centre, or contact your Miele Vacuum
Cleaner Specialist for advice.
Ensure that your old appliance presents
no danger to children while being
stored for disposal.

we recommend using the special Miele
Hard Floor Brush (see "Optional
accessories").
14
Preparing for use
Adjusting the standard
floorhead
It is important to observe the flooring
manufacturer’s cleaning and care
instructions.
The following symbols are found on
your vacuum cleaner's floorhead
depending on the model.

This aerodynamic and powerful floorhead is specially designed to achieve
good cleaning results while at the same
time being very energy efficient.
,If you find that a great amount of
effort is required to manoeuvre the
AirTeQ floorhead, reduce the suction
power to a suitable level (see
"Adjusting the suction power").
15
Using the accessories supplied
The following accessories are supplied:
a Dusting brush
For cleaning skirting boards, ornate,
carved or delicate articles, etc.
The head of the dusting brush can
be swivelled to attain the best
cleaning position.

Switching on and off
^ Step on the On/Off foot control s.
17
Use
Selecting the suction power
You can regulate the suction to suit the
type of flooring.
The higher the wattage, the more powerful the suction. Reducing the suction
power reduces the amount of effort
required to manoeuvre the floorhead.
The symbols on the controls indicate
the type of use the settings are suitable
for.
# - Curtains, lightweight fabrics
$ - Upholstery, cushions
% - High quality velour carpets, rugs
and runners
* - For daily energy-saving
vacuuming with a low operating
noise level
( - Loop-pile carpets and rugs
) - Hard flooring, and for intensive
cleaning of carpets and rugs
If you find that a great amount of
effort is required to manoeuvre the
AirTeQ floorhead, reduce the
suction power to a suitable level.
Rotary selector
^ Turn the suction power selector
manually to the suction power setting
you require.
18
Use
Opening the air inlet valve on
the handle
It is easy to reduce the suction power
for a short time, e.g. to prevent rugs or
other objects being sucked into the
vacuum cleaner.
^ Open the air inlet valve far enough to
reduce the suction power.
The floorhead will be easier to
manoeuvre. Close the valve up again
when you are ready to use full power
again.
Vacuuming
^ When vacuuming, pull the cleaner
behind you on its wheels. You can
stand it upright for vacuuming stairs
and curtains etc.
,When vacuuming especially fine
dust, e.g. sawdust, sand, 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. Please make sure that
you keep your hand in constant
contact with this metal strip during
vacuuming.
19
Setting down, transportation and storage
ParkSystem for pauses in
vacuuming
A parking system has been designed
for conveniently parking the vacuum
cleaner during pauses.
^ Slot the floorhead into the parking
attachment at the back of the
vacuum cleaner.
If the vacuum cleaner is parked on a
sloped surface, e.g. on a ramp,
retract all parts of the telescopic
wand completely.
ParkSystem for storage
,It is important to switch off the
vacuum cleaner after each use.
Switch off at the wall socket and
remove the plug.
There is a parking attachment on either
side of the vacuum cleaner.
^ Stand the vacuum cleaner in an
upright position.
It is also helpful to retract the
telescopic wand fully.
^ Slot the floorhead downwards into the
parking attachment on the side of the
vacuum cleaner.
This makes the vacuum cleaner easier
to carry or store.
20
Setting down, transportation and storage
If your vacuum is fitted with an XXL
handle, you have a further possibility for
space-saving storage of your
appliance.
^ Separate the XXL handle from the
parked telescopic wand.
^ Wind the suction hose around the
telescopic wand and insert the notch
at the back of the XXL handle
downwards into the other parking
attachment.
21
Maintenance and care
,Always disconnect the vacuum
cleaner from the electrical 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)
Only use Original Miele dustbags
and filters. This ensures that your
vacuum cleaner functions correctly
and cleans hygienically.
,The use of non-Miele approved
dustbags, paper dustbags as well as
dustbags with cardboard holders can
cause serious damage to the
vacuum cleaner and will invalidate
your warranty.
Purchasing new dustbags and
filters
Original Miele dustbags can be
ordered via the internet at
www.miele-shop.com, from Miele (see
back cover for contact details) or from
your Miele Vacuum Cleaner Specialist.
Ordering the correct dustbags
and filters
You can recognise Original Miele
dustbags type F/J/M and Original Miele
filters by the "Original Miele" logo on the
packaging or on the dustbags.
An 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 also
order all accessories via the Miele
website www.miele-shop.com.
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").
22
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.
Miele dustbags are disposable.
Dispose of full dustbags. Do not
continue to use them once they are
full as blocked pores reduce the
efficiency of the vacuum cleaner.
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 large amount 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!
23
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.
The dustbag has a closing flap which
closes automatically when the dust
compartment lid is raised to prevent
any dust escaping.
^ Pull the dustbag out by the grip next
to the self-closing flap on the collar.
^ 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.
^ It should be unfolded in the dust
compartment.
^ Close the dust compartment lid
securely, making sure it clicks into
position. Take care not to trap the
dustbag when doing so.
The lid will not close without a
dustbag in place. Do not use force!
24
Maintenance and care
When to change the exhaust
filter
Depending on the model, your vacuum
cleaner will be fitted as standard with
one of the following exhaust filters:
a Air Clean
Replace this filter every time you start a
new packet of Miele dustbags. An Air
Clean exhaust filter comes with every
packet of Miele dustbags.
b Active Air Clean SF-AAC 50 (black)
c Active HEPA SF-AH 50 (blue)
These types of filter need to be
changed approximately once a year.
Make a note of the date on the filter.
Correctly replacing the Air

shock.
31
Problem solving guide
The vacuum cleaner switches off
automatically.
A temperature limiter switch switches
the vacuum cleaner off automatically if
it gets too hot.
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 for overheating. Switch off the
vacuum cleaner using the On/Off
switch s. Switch off at the wall socket
and remove the plug.
After removing the cause, wait for
approximately 20 - 30 minutes to allow
the vacuum cleaner to cool down. It
can then be switched on again.
