Warning and Safety instructions
To avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the appliance, please
read these instructions carefully
before using it for the first time. They
contain important notes on its
installation, safety, use and
maintenance. This appliance is not
intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced
physical, sensory or metal
capabilities, or lack of experience or
knowledge, unless they have been
given supervision or instruction
concerning the use of the appliance
by a person responsible for their
safety.
Please stick the extra data plate for
your appliance supplied with this
documentation in the space
provided in the "After sales service"
section of this booklet.
Keep these instructions in a safe
place for reference, and pass them
on to any future user.
Technical safety
Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply make sure that
the connection data on the data plate
(voltage and connected load) match
the mains electricity supply.
This data must correspond in order to
avoid the risk of damage to the
appliance. Consult a qualified
electrician if in any doubt.
This appliance may be connected
via a fused plug and switched
socket. If you wish to connect it to an
isolator switch, or if the appliance is
supplied without a plug, it must be
installed and connected by a suitably
qualified and competent person in strict
accordance with current local and
national safety regulations. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
damage caused by incorrect
installation or connection.
The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it
and an effective earthing system which
complies with current local and national
safety regulations. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
present and regularly tested, and where
there is any doubt, the household
wiring system should be inspected by a
qualified electrician. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for the
consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
Never open the casing of the
appliance.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components is highly dangerous to
the user and can cause operational
faults.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
For safety reasons, the appliance
must only be used after it has been
built in. This is necessary to ensure that
all electrical components are shielded.
This appliance is intended for
domestic use only and is not to be
used for commercial purposes.
This appliance must only be used
as described in these instructions.
Any other usage is at the owner's risk
and could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
damage resulting from incorrect or
improper use or operation.
Do not immerse the water
container in water, or clean it in a
dishwasher. Connecting the water
container into the appliance when wet
could cause an electric shock.
10
For reasons of hygiene and to
prevent the build-up of moisture in
the appliance, the water container
should be emptied after each use.
The drip channel should be wiped
dry with a soft cloth after each use.
Leave the door open until the
cooking compartment is
completely dry.
If the appliance is not going to be
used for a longer period of time,
e.g. whilst on holiday, it should be
thoroughly cleaned beforehand to
prevent the build-up of odours etc.
Refer to "Cleaning and heating up for
the first time" and carry out the
procedure as described. Leave the
door open afterwards.
Warning and Safety instructions
Safety with children
To safeguard against burning,
keep children away from the
appliance at all times. This is
particularly important when the
appliance is in operation as children
might try to open the door.
The appliance is only intended for
use by adults who have read these
instructions. It is not a toy! To avoid the
risk of injury, keep children well away,
and do not allow them to play with it or
use the controls. They will not
understand the potential dangers
posed by it. They should be supervised
whenever you are working in the
kitchen.
Use the safety features to prevent
children operating the appliance or
altering the settings.
Do not allow children to lean
against the open oven door, nor to
sit on it or swing on it.
Packaging, e.g. cling film,
polystyrene and plastic wrappings,
must be kept out of the reach of babies
and young children. Danger of
suffocation. Dispose of or recycle all
packaging safely as soon as possible.
Before discarding an old
appliance, switch off and
disconnect it from the power supply.
Cut off and render any plug useless.
Cut off the cable directly behind the
appliance to prevent misuse. This
should be done by a competent
person. Ensure the appliance prevents
no danger to children while being
stored for disposal. See "Disposal of
your old appliance" for further details.
Warning: Take care in the area
around the door hinges. Danger of
injury. Keep children well away.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
Protecting the appliance from
damage
Do not use the appliance to heat
up food in sealed jars and tins.
Pressure will build up inside them and
they can explode causing damage to
the appliance, as well as the risk of
injury and scalding.
Do not store cooked food in the
oven. The moisture in the food can
lead to corrosion in the appliance.
Do not use metallic containers or
utensils in the oven which are likely
to rust. This can cause corrosion.
Use the descaling tablets supplied
with the appliance (see "Optional
accessories" for reordering details) or a
proprietary citric acid based descaling
agent to descale the appliance. Follow
the manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging.
12
Do not use a steam cleaner to
clean this appliance. The steam
could reach electrical components and
cause a short circuit. Pressurised
steam could also cause permanent
damage to the surface and to other
components, for which the
manufacturer cannot accept liability.
Do not place heavy objects on the
open door. The door can support a
maximum weight of 8 kg.
The appliance is designed in such
a way that there will always be a
little residual water left in the water
container after use. If there is no
residual water, there is something
wrong. Call the Service Department.
Warning and Safety instructions
Protection from burning and
scalding
For added protection, it is
advisable to use heat-resistant pot
holders or gloves when using the
appliance. Do not let them get damp or
wet, as this causes heat to transfer
through the material more quickly with
the risk of scalding or burning yourself.
When putting cooking containers
or the condensate tray into the
oven or taking them out, take care not
to spill the contents. Avoid contact with
hot steam, and do not touch the hot
oven interior walls. Danger of burning
and scalding.
Take care not to tip the water
container when taking it out of the
appliance. Hot water can scald.
Appliance faults
In there is any damage to the
appliance, it must be switched off
and disconnected from the mains
supply immediately. It must not be used
again until it has been repaired. If the
appliance has not yet been fully
installed, the electricity cable must be
disconnected from the supply point. If
connected via a plug and socket,
switch off at the socket and withdraw
the plug. Contact the Miele Service
Department.
Do not reconnect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply until after it has
been repaired.
Repairs should only be carried out
by a suitably qualified and trained
person in accordance with local and
national safety regulations. Repairs and
other work by unqualified persons
could be very dangerous and could
damage the appliance. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work. Never open the
housing of the appliance.
While the appliance is under
guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a service technician
authorised by the manufacturer.
Otherwise the guarantee will be
invalidated.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
Futher safety notes
When using an electric socket near
the appliance, care should be
taken that the cable of the appliance
cannot get trapped by the appliance
door. The insulation on the cable could
become damaged, giving rise to an
electric shock hazard.
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated.
Some foods, e.g. poultry, may contain
micro-organisms which are only
destroyed by thorough cooking at a
sufficiently high temperature for long
enough. If in doubt, select a longer
cooking or reheating time.
If using plastic cooking containers,
make sure that they are heat- and
steam-resistant to 100 °C. Otherwise
they may melt, distort or break.
14
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation
by cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
appliance and its surroundings in a
clean condition at all times. Any
damage caused by cockroaches or
other vermin will not be covered by the
guarantee.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
Caring for the environment
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.
Packaging, e.g. cling film, polystyrene
and plastic wrappings, must be kept
out of the reach of babies and young
children. Danger of suffocation.
Disposal 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 therefore dispose of your
old appliance with your household
waste.
Dispose of or recycle all packaging
materials safely as soon as possible.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
It should be unplugged or
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply by a competent person. If
connected by a plug, the plug must be
rendered useless and the cable cut off
directly behind the appliance to prevent
misuse.
15
Using for the first time
The steam oven is supplied with the controls pushed in.
They have to be released before the steam oven can be
used.
When the steam oven is first connected to the mains supply it
will switch on automatically and a welcome message will
appear in the display.

Using for the first time
Cleaning and heating up for the first time
Take the water container out of the appliance and remove the
insert (see "Cleaning and care"). Rinse the water container
and the insert thoroughly by hand using hot water. Do not use
any washing-up liquid or detergent.
Do not clean the water container or the insert in a
dishwasher. Do not immerse the water container in water.
Take all accessories out of the steam oven and wash them in
a mild solution of washing-up liquid and hot water or in the
dishwasher (this does not apply to the water container and
insert - see above).
The interior of the steam oven has been treated with a
conditioning agent before leaving the factory. To remove this,
clean the cooking compartment with a mild solution of
washing up liquid and hot water and then dry thoroughly with
a soft cloth.
Now fill the water container with mains tap water (see "Before
each use") and then run the Cook Universal (100 °C) for 15
minutes. Proceed as described in "Operation".
This process flushes out the waterways and sets the
appliance for the altitude in your area.
If you move house, the appliance will need to be re-set for
the new altitude if this differs from the old one by more than
300 m. To do this, descale the appliance (see "Cleaning and
care").
Warning! A lot of steam will be emitted from the appliance the
first time it is used, and the first time it is descaled after
moving house.

container, push the condensate tray
onto the lowest shelf runner to catch
any drips.
^ Fill the water container.
You do not need to remove the insert.
Only use mains tap water. Never
use distilled or mineral water.

1.2 l). These are located inside and
outside the container. On no account
exceed the upper or maximum level
marker. The amount of water required
will vary depending on what you are
cooking.
The maximum quantity of 1.2 litres of
water is sufficient to run the Cook
Universal 100 °C function for approx.
2 hours, providing the door is not
opened. The water level in the water
container is represented by a symbol in
the display.
Using hot water will shorten the
heating-up time.

Practical tips
Suitable containers
Some stainless steel cooking
containers are supplied with the
appliance. Other containers, in a variety
of sizes, both perforated and solid, are
available as optional extras.
When choosing the most suitable
container for the particular food you are
cooking, please note:
– Use perforated cooking containers
whenever possible, e.g. for
vegetables. The steam can reach the
food from all sides and the food is
cooked evenly.
– With large items of food, such as
whole potatoes, the steam can work
effectively because there are spaces
between the individual pieces into
which the steam can penetrate. This
way a large quantity will take the
same time to cook as a smaller
amount and large, deep containers
can be used. Where possible, space
the food out to allow the steam more
room.
You will find various tips on how to use
the steam oven in the following sections
or in the cook book.
Heat-resistant glass, ceramic,
porcelain, stainless steel and enamel
dishes are all suitable. Important:
– If using plastic cooking containers,
make sure that they are
heat-resistant to 100 °C and able to
withstand hot steam.
– Food will take considerably longer to
cook than the time quoted if the dish
has thick sides.
– Place the container on the rack
supplied.
– Ensure that there is a gap of at least
3 cm between the upper rim of the
container and the top of the cooking
compartment to allow sufficient
steam into the container.
– More compact dishes such as
casseroles or bakes, or food such as
peas or asparagus spears, which
have little or no space between
them, will take longer to cook
because the steam has less space to
work in. The fuller the container, the
longer it will take to cook. It is best to
use 2 or 3 shallow containers rather
than one deep one for these types of
foods, and then fill them only 3-5 cm
deep. Cooking durations quoted are
calculated on this principle. Deeper
dishes will take longer to cook.

Practical tips
Tips on steaming
– In general, the cooking durations for
cooking with steam are the same as
for cooking food in a saucepan.
– Steam prevents food from drying out
so it remains moist, and juices are
not lost. This applies to a wide variety
of food, including dumplings, steam
puddings, fish and meat dishes, as
well as vegetables.
– You can select any shelf level. You
can also cook on several levels at
the same time. This will not alter the
cooking duration.
– Food does not brown or get crisp
from over-cooking. It is gently
steamed, and not roasted or baked.
Cheese melts perfectly without
getting burnt. It is a healthy way of
cooking, and it brings out the distinct
flavour of the food.
– When cooking frozen food, e.g.
vegetables, ensure that any large
clumps frozen together are broken
up first so that they cook evenly. The
cooking duration is approximately
the same as for fresh vegetables.
– Frozen and fresh vegetables which
take the same length of time to cook
can be cooked together.
– Frozen fish should be partially
defrosted before cooking. We
recommend using the "Defrost"
function (see "Defrosting" for more
information).
– Cooking with steam retains the true
taste of the food better than
conventional cooking. Therefore food
should not be seasoned until after it
has been cooked.
– Only fill solid containers 3/4 full with
liquid.
– Dried foods like pasta and rice must
be cooked in liquid. Pasta should be
well covered with liquid. With pulses,
grains, parboiled rice, basmati rice
and wild rice, the proportion of food
to liquid should be 1:1, with brown
rice 1:1.5 and risotto rice 1:2.
– When cooking noodles, follow the
manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging regarding cooking
duration.
– Cooking liquids do not boil away.
They are either absorbed by the
food, as with rice and pasta, or they
remain in the dish to form a sauce,
as with casseroles. The sauce can
then be thickened or added to after
cooking.
– You can thicken sauces in the steam
oven by adding flour and butter to
liquid (40 g flour and 40 g butter to
0.5 litres liquid).
53
Practical tips
– Grease perforated containers
beforehand if using them to cook
fish, and solid containers if using to
cook dishes containing eggs.
– When cooking fish or food with a
distinctive colour (e.g. spinach) in a
perforated container, place the
container directly above the
condensate tray to avoid any transfer
of tastes or colour to other food.
– Yeast dough can be put in the oven
to prove.
Select Cook Universal and reduce
the recommended temperature to 40
°C. Cover the dough.
54
– The weight entry in the Automatic
programmes refers to the weight per
piece. The setting and therefore the
cooking duration is the same whether
cooking only one 250 g piece of
salmon or ten 250 g pieces at the
same time.

Practical tips
Frozen food can be defrosted in this
appliance in much less time than when
defrosting at room temperature.
Proceed as follows:
^ Place the food in a suitable container
or on the rack.
^ Select and confirm the Defrost
function.
^ Change the recommended
temperature if necessary (see chart)
and confirm your selection.
^ Select the defrost time (see chart)
and start the programme.
Tips on defrosting
– All meat and poultry should be fully
defrosted before cooking. When
defrosting meat or poultry place the
condensate tray underneath the rack
to catch the defrosted liquid, so that
the meat is not lying in this liquid.
It is particularly important to observe
food hygiene rules when defrosting
poultry. Do not use the liquid from
defrosted poultry. Pour it away and
wash the tray, the sink and your
hands. Danger of salmonella
poisoning!
– Fish does not need to be fully
defrosted before cooking. Defrost so
that the surface is sufficiently thawed
to take herbs and seasoning.
Depending on the thickness of the
fish, 2 - 5 minutes at 60 °C should be
enough.
– When defrosting food which has
frozen together, e.g. berries, chops,
fish fillets etc separate or break it up
about half-way through the defrosting
time.
– Allow food to stand at room
temperature at the end of the
defrosting time. This standing time
(see chart) is necessary to ensure
that the food is fully defrosted right
through to the core.
– Do not refreeze food once it has
thawed.
– Defrost deep frozen pre-cooked
meals according to the
manufacturer's instructions.
– Defrost baked goods in a sealed
freezer bag.
– Food which does not drip can be
placed on the rack or in a dish once
the wrapping has been removed.

58
^ Place a maximum of 6 prepared jars
(all the same size) on the rack,
ensuring that they do not touch one
another. This allows the hot steam to
surround the jars on all sides.
^ Make use of residual heat by leaving
the jars in the oven for 30 minutes
after it has switched off.
^ Cover the jars with a cloth and allow
to cool for approx. 24 hours.
Practical tips
Cooking whole meals
It is very economical and practical to
cook a whole meal at the same time in
the steam oven.
Proceed as follows:
^ Place cooking containers on different
levels or place them side by side or
one on top of the other on the rack.
In general, cooking durations will vary
according to the type of food. This
means that you will need to open the
steam oven at different times to add a
particular dish. Our test kitchen
recommends the following procedure,
as shown in this example (Function:
Cook Universal / 100 °C).
Rice
Fish fillet
Broccoli
20 minutes
6 minutes
4 minutes
^ First place the dish with the longest
cooking duration (the rice), in the
oven and set a duration of
20 minutes.
^ As soon as the set temperature has
been reached, set the minute minder
for the difference between the first
and second cooking durations, i.e.
the time until the second dish has to
be placed in the oven (14 minutes).
Confirm the minute minder time.
^ After 14 minutes, place the second
dish (the fish fillet) in the oven.
^ As soon as the set temperature has
been reached, set the minute minder
for the time until the third dish (the
broccoli) has to be placed in the
oven (2 minutes). Confirm the minute
minder time.
^ After 2 minutes, place the third dish
(the broccoli) in the oven.
At the end of the cooking duration you
can remove all the dishes at the same
time.
59
Practical tips
Blanching
You can use your steam oven to blanch
vegetables and fruit to prepare them for
freezing.
Proceed as follows:
^ Put the prepared vegetables/fruit
(cleaned, washed, chopped etc.) into
a perforated cooking container.
^ Select and confirm the Cook
Vegetables function. Confirm the
recommended temperature of
100 °C.
^ Set and confirm a duration of
1 minute.
^ Once blanched, plunge the
vegetables/fruit into ice cold water to
cool them down quickly. Drain them
well.
The vegetables/fruit can now be frozen.
Preparing yoghurt
Proceed as follows:
^ Mix 100 g yoghurt (with live culture)
with 1 litre of fresh milk. The yoghurt
and milk should have the same
percentage fat content.
If using unpasteurised milk you will
need to heat it up to 90 °C (do not
boil) and then leave it to cool.
Otherwise the yoghurt will not set.
^ Pour this milk mixture into 6 or 7
portion sized glass dishes and cover
with heat resistant cling film.
Special yoghurt jars may also be
used.
^ Place the covered dishes on the
rack.
^ Select and confirm Cook Universal
and reduce the recommended
temperature to 40 °C.
^ Set a duration of 5 hours.
^ Allow the yoghurt to cool and then
place in the refrigerator.
It will not achieve its maximum set until
it has been thoroughly chilled.
60
Practical tips
Disinfecting baby bottles
Proceed as follows:
The steam oven can be used to
disinfect baby bottles and other
containers. Check beforehand that all
parts, teats etc., are declared by the
manufacturer to be heat-resistant to
100 °C.
^ Place the condensate tray on the
lowest shelf level and place the rack
above it.
^ Dismantle, clean and thoroughly
rinse the bottles and space the
individual parts out on the rack,
ensuring that they do not touch one
another. This allows the hot steam to
reach them from all sides.
^ Select and confirm the Cook
Universal function. Confirm the
recommended temperature of
100 °C.
^ Set and confirm a duration of
15 minutes.
^ Dry thoroughly using a fresh, clean
tea towel after disinfection. All parts
of the bottles must be completely dry
before they are reassembled to keep
them germ free.
61
Cleaning and care
General notes
Disconnect the appliance from the
electricity supply and allow it to cool
down to a safe temperature before
cleaning. Clean the whole appliance
and then dry it thoroughly after each
use.
Make sure the appliance is completely
dry before closing the door.
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
this appliance. The steam could
reach electrical components and
cause a short circuit. Pressurised
steam could also cause permanent
damage to the surface and to
components, for which the
manufacturer cannot accept liability.
Do not use cleaners containing
alkalines, soda, acids or chlorides,
oven sprays, dishwasher cleaner or
abrasive cleaning agents, hard
brushes, scouring pads and cloths
or steel wool. You should also avoid
using sponges etc. which have
previously been used with abrasive
cleaning agents, as these would
damage the surface.
Do not use commercial cleaning
agents. Only use agents designed
for domestic use.
Do not use cleaning agents or
washing up liquids containing
aliphatics as these could cause the
seals to swell.
62
Cleaning and care
Appliance front and control
panel
The appliance front and controls should
be cleaned using a Miele E-Cloth or a
mild solution of hot water with a little
washing-up liquid, applied with a damp
cloth. Then wipe over with clean water,
and finally dry with a soft cloth.
See data plate for type of front. N.B.
Appliances with glass fronts are fitted
with an aluminium handle.
Aluminium
This material is susceptible to
scratching and to damage from alkalis
and acids. It is therefore essential to
clean it with care, as described above.
Do not use cleaning agents for
stainless steel or descaling agents on
these surfaces. Remove soiling immediately, as leaving it could result in the
surface discolouring or altering.
Glass
For appliances with glass fronts, a
proprietary glass cleaning agent may
be used.
Stainless steel
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using a Miele E-Cloth or with a
proprietary non-abrasive cleaning
agent designed specifically for use on

66
Cleaning and care
Coupling seal
The coupling seal should be replaced
with a new one if it becomes brittle or
porous over time or if an unusually
large amount of water collects on the
floor of the water container
compartment.
Coupling seals can be ordered from the
Miele Spare Parts Department. See
back page for contact details.
The coupling seal needs to be
lubricated regularly. If the water
container becomes difficult to remove
and replace or the fault message F20
appears, rub a small amount of the
silicone grease supplied (see
"Accessories supplied") into the inside
of the coupling seal. When doing this,
do not detach the seal but leave it in
place.
Only use the silicone grease
supplied. On no account must
margarine or oil or any other
domestic grease or fat be used, as
these can cause the seal to swell.
When handling silicone grease, please
observe the following safety measures:
– Remove any silicone grease from
your skin either by wiping it off or by
washing it off.
– If the grease gets into the eyes it
must be rinsed out with plenty of
clean water.
– If it is swallowed, seek medical
advice.

Cleaning and care
Descaling
Use the descaling tablets supplied supplied with the
appliance (see "Optional accessories" for reordering
details) or a proprietary citric acid based descaling agent
to descale the appliance. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions.
With aluminium appliances (see data plate) ensure that the
descaling agent does not come into contact with the
aluminium surfaces as this could cause marks. If, however,
any descaling agent gets onto an aluminium surface, wipe
it away immediately.
The water container will need descaling after a certain
number of operating hours. The display will alert you when
this needs done.

Problem solving guide
Installation work and repairs to
electrical components of this
appliance must only be carried out
by a suitably qualified and
competent person in accordance
with local and national safety
regulations. Repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work.
What to do if:
... you cannot switch the appliance
on.
Check whether the mains fuse has
blown.
If this is not the case, then disconnect
the appliance from the electricity
supply for approx. 1 minute. To do this:
– switch off at the wall socket and
withdraw the plug, or
– switch off at the isolator, or
– withdraw the mains fuse.
Reconnect to the mains supply and
switch the appliance on. If it still will not
start, contact a qualified electrician or
the Miele Service Department.
70
... the fan can still be heard after the
appliance has been switched off.
The appliance is fitted with a fan which
removes steam from the oven.
The fan will continue to run for a while
after the appliance has been switched
off.
... the water container has become
harder to put into the appliance and
take out again.
Lightly lubricate the coupling seal on
the water container with silicone
grease, as described in "Coupling
seal".
... the heating-up phase lasts an
unusually long time.
Check the bottom of the water
container.
If a thick layer of limescale has built-up,
check the water hardness level that has
been set. Set the correct water
hardness level for your water supply
(see "Setting the water hardness") and
descale the appliance as described in
"Descaling".
If the water hardness level was in fact
set correctly or the problem occurs
again, contact the Service Department.
Problem solving guide
... after moving house the appliance
no longer switches from the
heating-up phase to the cooking
phase.
Altitude affects the boiling point of
water. The appliance must be reset to
take into account the different water
boiling point in its new location (see
"Cleaning and heating up for the first
time".)
... during operation an unusually
large amount of steam escapes or
steam escapes from parts of the
steam oven where it does not
usually.
Check whether
– the door is closed properly.
– the door seal is fitted correctly. If
necessary, press it in all the way
round the door to make sure it is
fitted evenly.
.... F and a number appear in the
display.
This combination indicates a fault.
– F 20: The appliance does not heat
up.
First of all, check whether the water
container has been pushed right into
the appliance so that it connects.
Then switch the appliance off and
then back on again.
If the fault occurs again, lightly
lubricate the coupling seal on the
water container with silicone grease,
as described in "Coupling seal".
If the appliance still will not start,
switch it off and contact the Miele
Service Department.
– Other fault messages:
Call the Service department.
– the door seal is damaged, e.g.
cracks can be seen. The seal must
be replaced with a new one.
If this does not solve the problem, call
the Miele Service Department.
... a whistling sound is heard when
the appliance is switched on again.
When the door is closed, the pressure
has to equalise, which can cause a
whistling sound. This is not a fault.
