The AirClean Filter System Miele vacuum cleaners’ exceptional filtration is based on a multi-stage system. It consists of the innovative Miele HyClean dustbag, motor protection filter and Miele exhaust filter. The interaction of these components ensures that more than 99.9% of fine dust is filtered. You can breathe with ease! The air that comes out of the vacuum is purer than the room air that went in! The Miele AirClean Sealed System seals the entire vacuum and not just the exhaust filter, so bacteria and allergens are not released back into the air.  Miele vacuum cleaners are airtight. Miele has three different exhaust filters: •  Active AirClean filters for good indoor air •  HEPA AirClean filter for those with allergies or asthma •  AirClean filter for cleaner room air


6 Stage Suction Rotary Dial Control
Dial suction control
Electronic suction control is operated with a six-stage rotary dial. Symbols for floor and furniture surfaces make selecting the correct suction level easy.

One-Touch Wire Rewind
Without stooping down The wire on all Miele Canister vacuum cleaners can be rewound easily with a foot control, without having to stoop. The Calima, Alize, SoftCarpet, Kona, Cat & Dog, Marin, & Brilliant vacuum cleaners are also equipped with a touch control function, enabling the entire wire to be rewound at the touch of a button.

Operating Radius - C2
Go Further Without Moving To New Outlet
Wire, Telescopic Suction Wand and suction hose combine to provide you with an especially large operating radius of 33 ft.

High Quality Accessories
Always at hand
Miele Canister vacuum cleaners are equipped with three high-quality, standard attachments: Upholstery nozzle, crevice nozzle and dusting brush with soft natural bristles. They are integrated inside the vacuum - dust free or – exclusively with Miele – on a Vario clip and are always to hand.


Practical Locking System
Incredibly secure with just one click
For the safe connection of vacuuming accessories, Floorhead, Telescopic Suction Wand and handle lock into each other with an acoustic fit.

Overheating Protection
Reliable protection against overheating
A temperature limiter protects all Miele Canister vacuum cleaners from overheating. Should the air passage become blocked – for instance by vacuuming up a sock or child’s toy – the motor will automatically shut off for safety’s sake. After the cause of the shut-off has been eliminated and the vacuum has cooled down, it is ready again for use.

100% inspected!
Quality is Miele’s highest priority. From conception to finished vacuum, Miele vacuum cleaners are developed and manufactured exclusively in company-owned plants. Before a new model vacuum goes into production, it is tested for the equivalent of 20 years of use. The hose is twisted and stretched 120,000 times. The cable is unwound & rewound 10,000 times. The floorhead moves over 1,200 miles of flooring surfaces. The handle is raised and lowered 120,000 times. At the end of the manufacturing process, each individual vacuum cleaner is subject to comprehensive testing one more time. This care and attention results in exceptional quality and a long service life for Miele vacuums.

Gentle Start Motor
Easy on the Power Supply
The selected power level is ramped up slowly when Miele vacuum cleaners are switched on. This protects the motor from overload and saves power.

Handle with Metal Inlay
Works like a lightning conductor
All Miele vacuum cleaners have a small metal strip integrated into the handle, which works like a lightning conductor. This prevents static discharge between the vacuum and the user.
