The vacuum cleaner shuts off auto
matically by thermostatic control if
it overheats. Overheating could be due
to a clogged hose, a heavily soiled dust
compartment or exhaust filter, or a full
dustbag. If this occurs, clear the prob
lem and wait about 20 - 30 minutes for
the motor to cool down. The vacuum
cleaner can then be turned on again.
Do not turn on or attempt to oper
ate the vacuum cleaner unless a
dustbag, dust compartment filter and
exhaust filter are in place. Use only
genuine MIELE double-layer dustbags
and filters (see "Maintenance" for in-
structions on how to insert the dustbag
and filters). If a dustbag has not been
inserted, the dust compartment cover
will not close.
DO NOT USE FORCE!
Located on the underside of the
