Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and can normally be
recycled.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation!
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
offered for recycling.
Disposing of your old
appliance
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 dispose of your old
appliance with your household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that your old
appliance presents no danger to
children while being stored for
disposal.

Page: 13
The steam ironing system is fitted with
two castors.
These allow the appliance to be pulled
and pushed on flat surfaces while in the
folded up position.
^ Hold the steam ironing system by the
handle and tip it slightly towards you
until the castors are free to move.
This makes it easier to transport across
carpet edging, door thresholds and
single steps.
Always transport up and down stairs
with two people. The ironing board
must be at the bottom when
transporting this way.
^ Use the handles on the base of the
tower to transport horizontally.
,Do not transport the appliance
with the ironing board at the top.
Otherwise, the locking mechanism
on the tower may come loose and
the ironing board could cause injury
or damage to property.
Transporting
14
Page: 14
^ Move the steam ironing system to a
desired location.
^ Pull the release handle upwards
while holding the handle on the back
of the tower to keep it steady.
The locking mechanism of the tower will
be released and, at the same time, the
X-frame will unfold.
^ Hold the release handle pulled out
and guide the ironing board until it
clicks into place at a position of
approx. 45°.
The board will hold independently in
this position.
^ Pull the back of the ironing board
upwards with both hands until it
clicks into place at the horizontal
position.
^ Ensure the ironing board is engaged
on both sides of the tower.
Otherwise the height of the ironing
board will not be able to be adjusted.

Height adjustment
You can adjust the steam ironing
system to suit your individual height.
Make sure the mains connection cable
does not become jammed while doing
this.
Ensure the ironing board is locked
into place on both sides of the tower
(see 'Assembling').
Otherwise the height of the ironing
board will not be able to be
adjusted.
^ Activate one of the dials located on
either side of the tower by turning it
towards q as far as it will go and
then hold it there.
^ At the same time, use your other
hand to pull the handle on the back
of the tower upwards.
or
^ Push the handle on the tower
downwards to lower the ironing
board.
Do not push down on the ironing
board itself.
^ When the ironing board is at the
required height, release the dial and
it will return to the centre position.
We recommend adjusting the ironing
board to about the height of your hips
in order for you to be able to iron
comfortably.
The ironing board will remain at the set
position until adjusted again.
As an additional means of stabilising
the ironing boad at the required height,
it audibly clicks into place when any
load is placed on it.
The highest working position is approx.
102 cm.
Assembling

The steam ironing system is supplied
with a mains cable and moulded plug
ready for connection to an AC single
phase supply (220 - 240 V 50-60 Hz).
^ Flip open the storage compartment at
the base of the tower.
^ Completely remove the connection
cable from the storage compartment.
^ Plug the connection cable into a wall
socket.
^ Guide the connection cable through
the slot in the lid and then close the
storage compartment.
Take care when closing the lid that
the connection cable doesn't get
caught between the lid and the
housing or between the castor and
the tower.
^ Open the lid to the storage
compartment at the top of the tower.
^ Take out the iron and the steam hose
holder.
Connecting
18
Page: 18
^ Close the storage compartment.
^ Insert the steam hose holder into one
of the holes provided on either side
of the tower.
Note: Use the hole located on the side
on which you stand while ironing.
The operation of the steam ironing
system is suitable for both left and
right-handed people, as ironing can be
done on either side of the ironing
board.
^ Open the steam connection socket
cover by pulling it upwards.
^ Connect the iron by plugging the
steam hose into the steam
connection socket.
When doing this, pull back the sliding
switch on the plug of the steam hose
and release it after clicking into the
socket.
^ Slot the rubber ring on the steam
hose into the steam hose holder.
Ensure the steam hose is secure
and not twisted.
Connecting
19
Page: 19
^ To avoid damage or discolouration to
the ironing board cover, always place
the iron on the iron rest during
pauses in ironing.
Condensate may form on the iron rest.
However, this does not affect the
functioning of the steam ironing system.
The * button must be unlocked
before resting the iron.
,The iron must not be stood with
the pointed end facing upwards. It
may tip over and fall off the tower.
Always place the iron with the sole
plate resting against the iron rest.
,Danger of burning! The iron rest
becomes hot if the iron is left to rest
on it for a long time. Avoid any direct
contact with the iron rest while it is
hot. Only touch the handle at the
back of the iron rest.
Connecting
20
Page: 20
Before using your Miele steam ironing
system, you should first familiarise
yourself with all functions in order to be
able to use them correctly.
^ Remove all packaging from the
steam ironing system (e.g. film on
tower, etc.).
When using for the first time, a slight
smell may be given off during the
heating-up phase. This will dissipate
with further use.
Pumping, boiling and knocking noises
may be heard during the heating-up
phase.
These are normal noises that occur
during operation.
Water hardness
For trouble-free operation of the steam
ironing system, and to ensure that the
descaling reminder appears at the
appropriate time, it is important to set
the water hardness level for your area.
The water hardness level indicates how
much calcium is dissolved in the water.
The higher the calcium content, the
harder the water, and the harder the
water, the more often the appliance will
need to be descaled.
Your local water authority will be able to
tell you the hardness of water in your
area.
This information can often be obtained
from the internet homepage of your
local water authority.
Set the water hardness according to
the values given in the chart below. The
programmed water hardness level can
be recognised by the flash frequency of
the indicator light k.

If you cannot obtain information on your
water hardness level from your local
water authority, you can measure the
hardness yourself using the test strip
supplied:
^ Dip the strip in your drinking water for
approximately one second, then
shake off any excess water. The
result will be evident after about a
minute.
Set the water hardness according to
the values given in the chart below. The
programmed water hardness level can
be recognised by the flash frequency of
the indicator light k.
Water hardness
range on test strip
Flash
frequency
4 green squares < 0.5 mmol/l 1 short
1 red square > 0.7 mmol/l 2 short
2 red squares > 1.3 mmol/l 3 short
3 red squares > 2.5 mmol/l 5 short
4 red squares > 3.8 mmol/l 10 short
The steam ironing system is set at the
factory to the highest water hardness
level (70 °dH - AU/NZ 12.6 mmol/l).
If this setting corresponds to the
hardness of your water, you do not
need to do anything more.
Please go to 'Switching on'.
If the water hardness in your area is
different, set the appliance to the
appropriate level.
Where the water hardness fluctuates
e.g. between 1.4 - 3.1 mmol/l (8 - 17 °d
German scale), always programme the
appliance to the higher value (3.1
mmol/l in this example).
In the event of a fault, it will help the
service technician if you know the
hardness of your local water supply.

24
Page: 24
^ Turn the cap on the back of the water
container anti-clockwise and remove.
^ Tilt the water container and fill it with
fresh tap water (approx. 15 °C to
35 °C).
This allows it to be filled by taps with
not much room underneath.
It is not possible to overfill the water
container.
The water container can be removed
and refilled at any time, even in the
middle of ironing.
The required water level is determined
by the amount of ironing to be done.
^ Place the cap in the opening and turn
it clockwise as far as it will go.
^ Push the water container back into
the appliance.
The indicator light k will go out after a
short time.
The time it takes for the steam function
to be ready again depends on the how
long it took to refill the water container.
If the water container is filled and
refitted immediately after the indicator
light k lights up, no waiting time is
required. The indicator light * will
indicate that the steam function is ready
to use again.
As long as the indicator light k is
illuminated, the steam system is not
active.
The iron, however, may be used.
Environmental tip: You can save energy
by removing the water container and
ironing without steam. In this case, the
steam generator does not need to be
heated.
If the steam ironing system is not going
to be used for a long time, empty the
water container completely.

Water quality
Use only fresh tap water in the
appliance.
You may also use water that has been
prepared with commerical water filters.
With a water hardness level of 14 °dH
(AU/NZ 2.5 mmol/l) or higher, you may
mix tap water with commerically
distilled water at a ratio of 1:1.
This will halve the water hardness level.
You need to set the appropriate LED
flashing rhythm for the halved water
hardness level.
Example:
Mains tap water with a water hardness
level of 60 °dH (10.8 mmol/l) has a level
of 30 °dH (5.4 mmol/l) when mixed at a
ratio of 1:1.
According to the water hardness chart,
the flashing rhythm of the indicator light
k is 7x (see 'Setting the water hardness
level').
Do not use distilled water only to fill
the water container. This could result
in damage to the steam ironing
system.
Do not use water from water softener
systems. This could result in
damage to the steam ironing
system.
Do not use condensed water, e.g.
from other appliances such as an
air-conditioner, tumble dryer etc., or
rain water.
Do not use water containing
additives, e.g. fragrances, starch
etc., or carbonated water.

If you are using the steam function for a
long period of time, ensure there is
sufficient ventilation in the room as the
moisture level in the room may increase
dramatically.
Condensate may form in the ironing
board if the steam function is used for a
long time while ironing.
If you notice any condensate under the
ironing board, soak it up with a towel.
Some flooring can be damaged by
drops of water.
During pauses in ironing, condensate
can build up in the steam hose, which
is expelled when the steam button is
pressed again. To prevent the textiles
from becoming too damp, the first burst
of steam after a pause should not be
directed onto the textiles themselves.
Ironing without steam
If you wish to iron without steam,
remove the water container. This stops
the steam generator heating up and
therefore reduces your energy
consumption.

Ironing with the non-stick sole plate
A non-stick sole plate is located in the
storage compartment at the base of the
tower. This can be easily clipped onto
the iron.
,Danger of burning! The sole
plate gets very hot when the iron is
switched on. Avoid any direct
contact with the sole plate while it is
hot.
^ Place the point of the iron in the
non-stick sole plate first.
^ Pull back the tab at the rear of the
non-stick sole plate, hold it still, then
push the iron into the sole plate.
^ Release the tab and it will engage at
the back of the iron.
^ Wait approx. one minute before
ironing so that the non-stick sole
plate can reach the set ironing

The non-stick sole plate allows you to
iron sequins, beading and printing
without needing to turn the garment
inside out.
Furthermore, it helps to avoid, or at
least reduce, shiny patches on dark
clothing.
Always test first on an inconspicuous
part of the garment.

Steam extraction function
The steam extraction function helps to
penetrate fabrics with steam, avoids the
formation of condensate on the ironing
board, and fixes fabrics to the ironing
board so that they do not easily slip.
Steam inflation function
The steam inflation function creates an
air cushion between the fabric and the
ironing board, thus helping to prevent
seams from being crushed.
The benefits are evident when ironing
quillings and sequined garments and
this function also enables the removal
of creases without flattening fabrics too
much.
Automatic switching-on/off
The automatic switching-on/off function
ensures that the fan starts up precisely
at the correct moment when using
steam.
After a brief run-on time, the fan stops

Steamer (only on B 2847)
In addition to the conventional iron, the
B 2847 steam ironing system is
equipped with a steamer.
The steamer* can also be used on the
B 2312 and B 2826 steam ironing
systems (*optional accessory).
The steamer a makes it easier to
smooth out creases in hanging items,
e.g. dresses, jackets.
It is supplied with a removable brush
attachment b which helps to lift fibres
in fabrics.
The steamer is lighter than the iron. It
does not have a hot sole plate, thus
avoiding the risk of causing shiny
patches on fabrics due to inadvertent
contact.
The steamer can even be used when
the ironing board has been dismantled.
The steamer can be connected to the
steam ironing system via the steam
connection socket.
^ Take the steamer out of the storage
compartment at the base of the
tower.
^ Disconnect the iron from the steam

plugging in.
You can exchange the iron and the
steamer at any time while ironing.
You do not need to switch off the
steam ironing system to do this.
After switching between the iron and
the steamer, there is a short waiting
period before steam can be used
again. This ensures that either the iron
or the steamer has heated up
sufficiently.
The steamer is ready to use when the

Automatic descaling
To ensure trouble-free operation of the steam ironing system,
limescale deposits need to be removed regularly. To make
this easier, the appliance features an automatic descaling
function.
The need to descale is dependent upon the water hardness
level set.
The descaling intervals are shorter for hard water than for soft
water.
We recommend using Miele descaling tablets to descale
the steam ironing system. They have been specially
developed for the Miele steam ironing system to optimise
the descaling process.
Other descaling agents that contain not only citric acid but
other acids, and/or undesirable substances such as
clorides, may damage the steam ironing system. In
addition to this, the required cleaning effect cannot be
guaranteed due to different concentrations of the
descaling solution.
One tablet is required for each descaling process.
More descaling tablets can be ordered directly from Miele or
online at www.miele-shop.com (depending on country).
The iron or the steamer must not be connected when the
appliance is being descaled.
You do not need to supervise the appliance during the
descaling process.
Cleaning and care
45
Page: 45
Reminder to descale
If two operating hours remain until the appliance must be
descaled, the indicator light k begins to flash red. The less
time remains until descaling, the faster the indicator light
flashes, until it finally lights up constantly.
During the time between which the indicator light k begins to
flash and lights up constantly, the descaling process can be
started by pressing the j button.
As soon as the indicator light k lights up constantly, the
remaining operating hours have expired.
You may finish what you are ironing, but descaling will need
to be carried out the next time the appliance is switched on.
Otherwise, ironing will not be possible.
The residual water drawer can become warm during the
descaling process. Remove and empty the drawer only
after being prompted to do so by the indicator light 2.
Otherwise, the hot water may cause injury and/or damage
to property if spilled.
To prevent the residual water drawer from being removed
inadvertently, lower the steam ironing system to its lowest
working position (see 'Height adjustment'). To remove the
residual water drawer, the steam ironing system must be
raised to its highest working position.
The descaling process can be interrupted by switching off
the appliance with the s button. After switching the
appliance on again, the descaling process will continue from
the point at which it was interrupted.
Cleaning and care
46
Page: 46
The indicator lights in the control panel will guide you through
the descaling process. Follow the indicator light prompts,
e.g. 2 empty the residual water drawer, k fill the water
container etc.
The entire descaling process takes approx. 90 minutes. Carry
out the necessary actions only when prompted to do so by
the indicator lights. You will need to be present at approx. 20
minutes and a further 60 minutes after starting the descaling
process. The steam ironing system can be unattended for the
remainder of the descaling process.
It is best to begin the descaling process when the appliance
is cool and directly after switching on. This will avoid a
waiting time of up to three hours if the appliance needs to
cool down.
