Try again exactly according to the operating instructions: 1. Switch off the appliance. 2. Clean and dry the metal contacts on the residual water drawer. 3. Switch the appliance on again and remedy the fault as follows: - Push the residual water drawer into the appliance and leave it there for at least 20 seconds. - Remove the residual water drawer again. Then empty and dry it. - After at least 20 seconds, push the drawer back into the appliance. The appliance is now ready for use and will continue the process started before the fault occurred. 4. Switch the appliance off and then back on again. If the indicator light continues to flash, call Miele.

I am by no means an expert. I have an electronic background. I have been looking at my mother in laws iron and noticed a few things about it. Check the foot pedal switch. it is easy to acess. Lay machine on its back and remove the two screws and the cover. If you have a continuity test just make sure the switch changes states when you push it. Hope this helps

RCD or MCB that is tripping? If MCB the iron is overloading the circuit, usually a short circuit and is often related to the power cord. If RCD power is escaping from the circuit to ground and is usually caused by an internal water leak.

I am not familiar with the model but I have dismantled a fair number of steam irons - manufacturers are invariably devious in hiding the screws and generally the more modern the iron the fewer are the screws. Over the years I have needed to prise off various pieces of trim to reveal screws - commonly there has been one revealed by removing the temperature control knob. The last one was held together by only two screws accessed after removing the rear terminal cover. The cable had to be removed and the terminal screws - then the rear of the upper shell would lift far enough to clear all obstructions and be pushed forward to release the front and then lifted clear.

you won't unless you install a switch in line of the power cord. in other words put a switch on the cord. You can get them just about any where ACE walmart Home depot.The reason it's doing that is because the heating element is being told to heat up right away. it's not going to hurt anything. it is a good idea to have a switch though

Inside the iron is a piece of thermal metal the is supposed to make contact with a small ceramic pin with a metal cap on it. I think this was intended to be a safety device but they fail and the iron will not heat up. The part does not seem to be available so easiest way to fix is to put a small bead of glue on the housing that forces this to make contact.

The fine fibres at the surface of linen stand up like the bristles on a brush. Light coming into the fibres gets trapped. When you iron the linen, you flatten the fine fibres. Incoming light no longer gets trapped in the spaces between the fibres and instead is reflected (bounced back) like on a mirror. That is why linen looks shiny after ironing. To prevent this, use a damp cloth on top of your linen when ironing. This will flatten (iron) the linen material but not compress the fine fibres. Good look.
