This page describes the Miele Classic C1 Delphi Power Team which always includes their SEB 217-3 Direct Connect Powerbrush.
Miele has been designing and manufacturing products for the home since 1899. They produced their first vacuum cleaner in 1927 and celebrated their 100th Anniversary in June of 1999. Their products are world renowned for their power, durability and performance. The introduction of the Miele Delphi vacuum, with its beautiful Sprint Blue finish, reflects their commitment to designing and manufacturing outstanding vacuum cleaners. As with all Miele products, all its advanced technology and incredible power is harnessed within a truly beautiful work of art. You may even be tempted to purchase a Miele Classic C1 Delphi vacuum cleaner on its looks alone.
While continuing the strong Miele tradition of quality, design, beauty and outstanding performance, this Miele Classic C1 Delphi, with its very convenient direct connect electric wand, direct connect SEB 217-3 powerbrush and Parquet floor brush, takes Miele's beauty and technology to an even higher level. It is part of the Miele Classic C1 Series of canister vacuum cleaners which make owning a Miele with electric powerbrush even more affordable. (On February 1, 2015 the "S2" series was renamed the "Classic C1" series.)
The Miele Delphi vacuum cleaner uses a multi-layer filtration system which increases the life of the high filtration exhaust filter. The air passes through their high filtration AirClean Bag and a secondary electrostatic filter before reaching the special exhaust filter. Each layer of filtration captures more particles as the air passes through them. Ideally, multi-layer filtration enhances performance by ensuring good air flow through the system. It prevents large particles from reaching and blocking the exhaust filter, saving it for critical particle retention.
The Miele Classic C1 Delphi vacuum comes standard with their Super Air Clean exhaust filter for those desiring outstanding filtration but who do not have dust related sensitivities which require the level of filtration which meets the stringent HEPA 13 specification.
Using the Classic C1 Delphi canister vacuum differs from your typical home vacuum cleaner because of its special high filtration capabilities built into its system. The Miele Delphi vacuum is carefully designed so the sub-micrometer dust you pick up actually reaches the high filtration exhaust filter and is not blown out through minute cracks in the case or around the exhaust filter like many competing cleaners with high filtration exhaust filters. To protect you even more the dustbag is designed to automatically close its opening when you open the vacuum to remove it for disposal.
Vacuum cleaners are designed so that air flows through the nozzle and hose into the dustbag, and then through any additional filters before leaving the machine at the exhaust. Filters capable of achieving sub-micrometer filtration are important but equally important is how much of the air flow containing these allergens, etc. actually passes through the filters to be cleaned by them. With the Miele Delphi vacuum you can rest assured that all the air flow passes through and is filtered by the Super Air Clean or optional HEPA AirClean and Active Air Clean exhaust filters.
Miele's revolutionary new AirClean dustbag offers unbeatable advantages which really enhance the performance of the Miele Delphi canister vacuum cleaner. First and foremost, the unique new material which composes AirClean dustbags has made significant progress in the quality of filtration: Thanks to its intricate web of three-ply random-spun polymer fibers, far more tiny particles and allergens are retained than with conventional dustbags. This alone accounts for a reduction in dust emissions from the dustbag of up to 50%, based on levels which were already extremely low. Therefore, this vacuum's secondary filter and high efficiency exhaust filter will be kept cleaner, providing outstanding cleaning performance with reduced resistance to the air flow.
The enhanced composition of AirClean virtually eliminates clogging, improving cleaning performance even further. This material captures millions of tiny dust particles and holds them tight within its fibers, keeping the pores of the dustbag open longer. As a result, this Miele vacuum cleaner retains its excellent cleaning performance, even when the dustbag is full. This special polymer material also makes the dustbag practically tear-proof. The risk of damage caused by sharp, pointed objects in the bag is now a thing of the past.
For those with dust related allergies or asthma, Miele has an optional HEPA AirClean exhaust filter which meets the stringent HEPA 13 specification. It has been proven to retain over 99.99% of dust particles. It only needs to be replaced approximately once a year. A special "Timestrip" provides a visual indication of when the filter should be replaced. Packaged in a white case, the SF-HA 30 HEPA AirClean filter takes clean air to an even higher level. It replaces the former SF-AH 30 HEPA filter in a light blue case which met the "HEPA 12" specification. When purchasing your new Miele Delphi from Ristenbatt Vacuum Cleaner Service, turn it into an outstanding allergy vacuum with extremely low dust emissions by adding the HEPA AirClean filter for only $54.99.
Miele even has a special filter designed for the pet lovers in our world. Their Active Air Clean Filter features a thick layer of Activated Charcoal sandwiched between two Super Air Clean filters for outstanding odor trapping abilities. It's great for cat & dog owners. When purchasing your new Miele Delphi from Ristenbatt Vacuum Cleaner Service, turn it into an allergy vacuum with very low dust and odor emissions by adding the Active Air Clean filter for only $43.99.
The powerful 1200 Watt, Miele Vortex suction motor produces plenty of suction for cleaning low to medium nap carpeted floors when used with its SEB 217-3 Powerbrush. As such it is a very effective 1440 watt (12 Amps.) power team...both in its ability to pick up dirt and allergens and in its ability to retain them. This high performance motor has fan parts that are aerodynamically designed with no parallel surfaces and nine long fan scoops compared to the typical six shorter ones. These scoops are quite wide near the hub of the fan and become more narrow toward the outer edge similar to that of a jet engine compressor. This single stage "compressor design" optimizes the air flow and increases the overall motor efficiency. Featuring lifetime lubricated ball bearings, well balanced motor parts, enhanced motor suspension and lining of the motor housing, the Miele Delphi will perform quietly for many years. Due to its typical life expectancy of 1200 hours, Miele proudly warranties this motor for seven years. To learn more about this outstanding motor, see our article on the Powerful Miele Vortex Motor.
The Classic C1 Delphi vacuum is also equipped with six different motor speed settings which adjusts the air flow, giving you complete control when you clean. The electronic speed control dial on the vacuum enables you to easily select the proper amount of power for cleaning anything from draperies to medium height carpeting. Reducing the suction prevents curtains, upholstery or area rugs from inadvertently being drawn into the cleaning nozzle.
The Miele Classic C1 Delphi vacuum is a complete power team that includes the SES 116 Electric Hose, SET 220 Direct Connect Electric Wand and SEB 217-3 Direct Connect Powerbrush. Its powerbrush is designed for cleaning low to medium height carpets. If you have high pile carpets, we recommend adding the more aggressive brushing action of the optional deluxe SEB 236 Powerbrush or purchasing a more deluxe Miele vacuum which includes this powerbrush for improved cleaning of deeper pile carpets.
Having a 1.4 Amp motor to drive the 10 1/2" revolving brush, the powerbrush adds to the power of the Miele Classic C1 Delphi vacuum. A cog type belt is used to provide positive power transfer from the motor to the brush roll. You can even use the powerbrush to clean small areas of bare floors by stopping the powerbrush motor and brush roll with a flip of the finger-tip power nozzle switch on the hose.
Miele's SES 116 Electric Hose mates with the top of the SET 220 Direct Connect Electric Wand with its internal wiring. The bottom of this wand mates with the SEB 217-3 Direct Connect Powerbrush. This electric wand even telescopes so you can easily adjust it to match your individual stature. For convenient storage, it collapses to about half its total height.
When you attach the wand to the hose and the powerbrush to the wand, all electrical connections are made automatically. Removing them is just as easy. There are absolutely no exposed cords between the hose, wand and powerbrush which need to be plugged in manually. All electrical wiring is built into them. This direct connect feature between the electric hose, electric wand and powerbrush provides even more convenience and user friendliness. It really makes it a breeze to switch between the powerbrush and other attachments without breaking your pace.
The Miele Classic C1 Delphi vacuum carries its three small attachments on a snap-on VarioClip™ that can be attached to the hose either at the vacuum or up near the hose handle. The dusting brush has soft bristles to protect your hard furniture while the upholstery nozzle has two red strips which are like the "magic lint brushes", capturing the lint, hairs and threads and then cleaning themselves on the reverse stroke as you clean your soft upholstered furniture. Also included is a crevice tool for reaching into those tight corners.
The Miele Delphi vacuum cleaners are designed to track nicely behind you as you pull them by the hose. They are equipped with three wheels which turn a full 360° making them very easy to maneuver and very stable. Going over electrical cords, door thresholds and around furniture is a breeze. Since it can be moved in any direction, being able to easily push it out of your path when working near the machine is an added convenience.
Miele provides a year of peace of mind, knowing that you will not have the expense of a repair which is covered by their standard One Year Limited Warranty. This limited warranty are reduced to six months if the vacuum cleaner is used for commercial purposes.
Miele is so confident in the durability of their unique Vortex motor that they cover it with their long Miele Seven-Year Limited Motor Warranty.

These extra-long waranties provide six additional years of peace of mind, knowing that you will not have the expense of a repair covered by them. These limited warranties are reduced to six months if the vacuum cleaner is used for commercial purposes.
