Any other use, modification or alteration
to it is at the owner’s risk and could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot
be held liable for damage resulting from
improper or incorrect use.

Technical safety

Before using the battery charger
for the first time, ensure that the

connection data on the plug of the
charger (voltage and frequency) match
the mains electricity supply. It is essen-
tial that they match to avoid damage to
the charger.

Do not use the battery-operated
brush, the battery or the charger if

they show any sign of damage.
Damaged components could be

Switch off the vacuum cleaner and

brush to operate it.

Only use the original charger
supplied with the appliance to

charge the battery.

The battery must only be charged
in a dry, cool place inside the


The battery should be kept out of
direct sunlight, and protected from

temperatures of more than 50 °C.

Batteries can leak. Battery acid is
corrosive and must not come into

contact with the eyes. If this does hap-

of fresh water and medical advice

When unplugging the charger, pull
on the plug and not on the cable.


Warning and Safety instructions

Do not let the battery-operated
brush, the battery or the charger

get wet. Clean only with a dry cloth, or
a slightly damp cloth to avoid any
moisture getting into the appliance,
which could lead to the danger of an
electric shock.

Keep the battery away from metal
components to avoid the risk of a

short circuit occurring.

Repairs may only be carried out by
a suitably qualified and competent

person in strict accordance with current
national and local safety regulations.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work.

Ensure current is not supplied to the
appliance until after maintenance or

repair work has been carried out.

Safety with children

This appliance is not a toy! To
avoid the risk of injury do not let

children play with the vacuum cleaner
or with the battery-operated brush and
their controls. Supervise use by older
children and the elderly or infirm.


Never touch the roller brush while it
is rotating. Danger of injury.

Do not use the battery-operated
brush near curtains, clothing etc,

as these could be vacuumed in and
become entangled in the roller.

Do not vacuum up items which are

They could block the battery-operated
brush and the vacuum cleaner, and
cause damage.

Do not vacuum up ashes or coal,
whether glowing or apparently

extinguished. The battery-operated
brush and the vacuum cleaner might
catch fire.

or combustible liquids or gases and

do not vacuum in areas where such
substances are stored. Danger of

The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

Description of the appliance

Features and how the
battery-operated brush works

The roller brush is driven by a
battery-operated motor inside the
floorhead. A special energy-saving and
safety feature ensures that the motor
can only be switched on when the
following conditions are met:

– The vacuum cleaner is switched on.

– The battery-operated brush is being

pushed backwards and forwards
over a floor surface.

The brush will stop rotating whenever
you stop moving the floorhead. The
"Operation / Blockage" indicator light
will then go out. The brush will start
rotating again as soon as you move the

The battery-operated brush is very
effective at removing deep-seated dirt
and preventing areas of frequent use
being trodden into a path. Four rollers
keep the battery-operated brush
1.5 mm off the floor.

Recommended use

The battery-operated brush is
particularly suitable for intensive
vacuuming of carpets which are
subject to hard wear.

The standard floorhead or one of the
Miele floorbrushes should be used for
cleaning hard floors, such as tiled or
parquet floors.

It is also important to observe the
flooring manufacturer’s cleaning and
care instructions.

The following should not be
vacuumed using the battery-operated

– Floor surfaces with heavily textured

surfaces or a variable or uneven
profile. The battery-operated brush
might come into contact with the
floor and cause damage.

– Carpets such as saxony with very

long-pile, berber and sheepskin
rugs, and valuable hand-knotted
carpets, e.g. Persian and similar.
There is a danger of the threads
being pulled out. If in doubt, contact
the carpet manufacturer/retailer.

How to use the battery-
operated brush


To achieve the best results, pass the
brush slowly backwards and
forwards over the carpet or floor.

For rugs and carpets with fringes,
always draw the brush from the middle
of the rug or carpet across the fringe
towards the floor.

Before using for the first time


The connection data on the plug

of the battery charger (voltage and
frequency) must match the mains
electricity supply.


The battery operated brush is supp-
lied with the battery fitted. However,
before it can be used the battery
must be removed and the protective
sleeve disposed of!


Before first use the battery will need
to be charged for about 5 hours.
Make sure you fit it the right way

Subsequent charging takes about 5
hours. The battery only reaches its full
capacity of approx. 40 minutes’
operational time after several charging

Maintenance of the battery


Switch off the vacuum cleaner

and the battery-operated brush be-
fore carrying out any maintenance

Charging the battery


The battery-operated brush may be
used until the battery indicator light


lights up red.

To ensure the battery continues to
maintain full charge, it should be
allowed to run down completely
approx. every 6 months.

The battery charger has 2 displays for
checking the charge. At the end of
charging, one display will continue to
light up red, whilst the other lights up


At the end of charging,

disconnect the battery charger from
the mains electricity supply, and
remove the battery.


Replace the battery in the
battery-operated brush before using
the vacuum cleaner again. Make sure
you fit it the right way round.

Taking care of the battery


Batteries can run down. The

battery should therefore be removed
from the battery-operated brush if it
is not going to be used for a while.

The battery will run down by itself if it is
not being used. This is intentional, and
helps to protect the battery.

Maintenance of the battery-
operated brush


Switch off the vacuum cleaner

and the battery-operated brush
before carrying out any maintenance

Removing threads and hairs

(See diagrams






at the end

of these operating instructions).


Cut any threads or hairs that have
become entangled in the roller brush
with a pair of scissors. There is a
groove along the roller to help you.

Then run the vacuum cleaner to
vacuum up the bits.

For more obstinate tangles or
blockages inside the battery-operated
brush, the cover can be opened.


Loosen the two locking screws on the
underside of the brush with a small
coin, and take off the roller cover.

The roller brush can now be taken out
of its supports and cleaned. The
compartment interior can also be

When re-fitting the roller brush
please note the following
(see illustration



There are notches on the supports.
With a new roller brush:
Fit the supports so that the


notch points towards the roller cover,
(see left hand illustration). The bristles
protrude approx. 2 mm. This is
important for the brushing effect. When
the bristles are slightly worn out:


Fit the supports so that



point towards the roller cover, (see
right hand illustration).


Put the roller cover back on and
close it, (see illustration




Tighten the locking screws. If the
bristles are totally worn out, a
replacement roller brush can be
purchased through your Miele Dealer
or the Spare Parts Dept.

Problem solving guide

If the "Operation / Blockage" indicator
light is red the roller brush has become


Switch off the vacuum cleaner and
the battery-operated brush


Remove the blockage, and switch the
vacuum cleaner and the battery-
operated brush back on.

Replacement parts


Only ever use original Miele

replacement parts. This will ensure
optimum performance of the
appliance throughout its life.

If you require a new battery, only
purchase an original Miele battery
(type ACCU NOVA A).

Spare parts are available from your
Miele dealer or from the Miele Spare
Parts Department.
