Buy the Miele Complete C3 Excellence if you have wall to wall carpets, Area Rugs, and Hard floors such as hardwood, laminate and ceramic. This model is also suitable for pet hair. This is also the perfect model for those looking to purchase a Miele vacuum for the first time and have owned a Kenmore or an Electrolux vacuum equipped with an Electric Powerhead. The Electric Powerhead included with this model does a fantastic job on low to medium pile carpet or area rug. It can also be used on hard floors with a switch of a button. This is an excellent feature for people who prefer to use the same floor head on multiple surfaces. Miele vacuums are famous for their superb filtration. The Miele AirClean filter system, consisting of a Miele dustbag, motor protection filter and AirClean exhaust filter, guarantees the filtration of more than 99.9% of the fine dust. For people who want even better filtration, an optional HEPA filter can be added to the vacuum.

The electric powerhead that comes with this mode may NOT be a suitable for you if you have very soft, thick, high pile carpets or rugs or very high shedding pets. In this case, you might want to consider upgrading the powerhead to the SEB228 or the SEB236.

Floor Attachments Included With the Miele Complete C3 Excellence:

SEB217-3 Electric Power Head: A light-weight electronically-run brush runs on a geared belt (similar to timing belt in your car), making it extremely reliable and effective. This powerhead maneuvers very nicely. It removes dirt, pet hair, and pet dander from deep within your carpets and Area Rugs pile. Turn off the roller brush, and this also makes an excellent tool for bare floors.


SBD285-3 Classic Combination Floor Brush: This brush is perfect for cleaning hardwood floors, ceramic tiles and low-pile carpeting.


Miele C3 Excellence Features:

  • Long Cord: All C3 models come with a 24 ft cord that allows convenient vacuuming of even larger rooms without frequently changing power outlets.


  • 3 Accessory Tools On-Board. All Miele Vacuums come with the three little accessory tools (dusting brush, Upholstery Brush and Crevice Tool). However, Miele C3 vacuums are the only models with the accessory tools integrated onto the body of the vacuum. So they are easy to access, and you never lose them.


  • Large Dust Capacity. The Miele C3 models have the largest dust compartment and take GN bags with a 4.5 liter dust capacity.
  • Lightweight. High Grade ABS Plastic Body, means this vacuum only wights 13 lbs.


  • Foot Operated Suction Setting Controls.


  • Bumper strip: The Miele Complete C3 vacuum cleaners are equipped with an all-round furniture protection strip made from synthetic material. This protects both furniture and appliance in the event of accidental collisions.


Miele's Superb Air Clean Filtration System 

The Miele Air Clean System consists of a 9 Layer Microfiber Dust Bags, a Pre-motor filter, a Microfilter exhaust filter and a Sealed Compartment System. This means No Dust will ever escape a Miele Vacuum. That eliminates health problems such as Asthma, Allergies and other respiratory problems. The Miele AirClean filter system guarantees the filtration of more than 99.9% of the fine dust. 



For even better air filtration, in case of acute allergies or asthma, you have the option to add a HEPA filter in place of the exhaust filter. The SFHA-50 Hepa filter retains 99.95% of all particles or allergens, such as viruses and bacteria.

Other Features of The Miele C3 Excellence Vacuum Cleaner:

Miele Vacuum Cleaners have enjoyed tremendous popularity over the years because of their quality and reliability. Here are some of the features shared by all Miele Vacuums:

  • Quiet, Powerful 1200 Watt Vortex Motor:Miele’s encapsulated silent Vortex Motor makes very little sound. This means superior suction power, but with quiet operation. The selected power level is ramped up slowly when Miele vacuum cleaners are switched on. This protects the power supply from overload.
  • A Full Bag Indicator which tell you when you need to change the dust bag.
  • Adjustable Telescopic Stainless Steel Wand allows you to adjust the wand to your height, preventing exhaustion and back pain when you vacuum. It's also handy when trying to reach high places such as the ceiling.
  • It is very easy to attach and detach attachments using the lock button on the end of attachments.
  • All of the nuzzles on the vacuum cleaner swivel easily to reach under beds and furniture.
  • A two-ways parking system makes transporting and storing your vacuum cleaner a dream.

    C3 Excellence

    Posted by Brandon on 2020 Oct 10th

    It's Beautiful. It's light and the air it pushes out through the filter is great...especially if you work up a sweat vacuuming. I found watching the youtube video by the actual company very helpful for beginner tips and what not. I think the slits on the side were a bit hard to get used to when trying to put the wand to stand while stationary. I like it more than my kirby! I like that it's not noisy either. I recommend the Parquet Twister for bare floors and the Electro brush for carpets. The foot switch universal brush doesn't excel at either so you can use that in low traffic areas but when you want a really nice job use the electro strictly for carpets and the parquet for bare floors. This vacuum is also good because you won't feel the air is dusty after you use it. The air will be clean. Have fun!

    BMW of bagged canister vacuums

    Posted by TW on 2020 Jul 18th

    I was not happy with the low capacity and frequent cleaning requirements of my existing bagless canister, and wanted to return to a traditional bagged canister. I was unsure about buying the Miele C3 for $600, because it's a lot of money for a vacuum, but I really needed a good caniste with an electric brushhead that could do the entire house several times before needing cleaning. So I bought the C3 and I'm very happy with the result after spending several hours with it. The C3 has incredibe suction, but it's rather quiet even on the highest suction setting. The electric brushhead is also very quiet compared to my old canisters. The whole user experience of the C3 is very pleasant. I would say it handles like a BMW (of vacuum cleaners), and even looks like one too, with its glossy white exterior.

    Miele Complete C3 Excellence

    Posted by Deanna on 2020 Jul 9th

    I've been a Kenmore Canister fan for MANY years and with Sears gone I shopped around before I landed on this one. I love the LONG wand (we are a tall family) and that I can easily shorten it with the push of a button to do carpeted stairs. Good long cord. Great suction. The electric power head is perfect for my area mats and the carpet in basement workshop. I'm getting used to having the power ont he canister rather than the wand. I do wish I could re-use the bags. We have two dogs (one with lots of long hair) and a long haired cat. The vacuum picks this fur up easily, as well as all the bits and pieces that come in on dog feet from outdoors. But I'm going to go through a lot of bags-- that's my one downside to this vacuum. Other than that, five stars from me!

    I love it! I was a Kenmore Canister vacuum lover for many many years and with Sears gone shopped around for my latest vacuum. It's just great! It was easy set-up. I love the LONG wand (and the fact that it's easy to shorten for doing the stairs). The Electric Power Head is perfect for my area mats and workshop basement carpet.I like how it exhaust out the top so it doesn't blow dust behind it. Lightweight. Powereful suction. Long cord. I

    Miele C3 Excellence Powerline Vacuum

    Posted by Kathy Marchen on 2020 Jul 7th

    We had a Miele vacuum for the last 14 years and were very pleased with it. When we decided it was time to replace it we looked at both Miele and Dyson. After seeing (and hearing) good and bad on the Dyson, and only seeing good reviews on the Miele we decided to stay with it. Made the right decision! We are extremely pleased with the vacuum. It is very good quality, easy to use, works perfectly and maintenance is easy also. Would highly recommend this vacuum.
