Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before connecting the oven to the
~ Installation, maintenance and
mains supply, make sure the rating on
the data plate corresponds to the
voltage and frequency of the on-site
supply. Consult a competent person if
in doubt.
repairs may only be carried out by a
suitably qualified and competent
person in accordance with current
national and local safety regulations.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work.
~ Before installation, check the
appliance for visible signs of damage.
Under no circumstances should you
use a damaged appliance. A damaged
appliance could be dangerous.
~ The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it
and an effective earthing system. It is
most important that this basic safety
requirement is present and tested
regularly, 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).
6
~ Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket unit or an extension lead.
These do not guarantee the required
safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of
overheating).
~ For safety reasons, this appliance
may only be used when it has been
built in.
~ Never open the housing of the
appliance.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous to the user and can
cause operational faults.
~ 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.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ During installation, maintenance and
repair work, the appliance must be
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply. It is only completely isolated
from the electricity supply when:
Correct use
– the mains fuse is disconnected,
~ Use oven gloves when placing food
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable),
in the oven, turning or removing it and
when adjusting oven shelves etc. in a
hot oven. Be very careful that you do
not burn yourself on the top heating /
grill element.
– it is switched off at the isolator.
Ensure that current is not supplied to
the appliance until after maintenance
or repair work has been carried out.
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. The manufacturer can only
guarantee the safety of the appliance
when Miele replacement parts are
used.
~ If the supply cord is damaged, it
must be replaced by a Miele approved
service technician to avoid a hazard.
~ This appliance may only be used in
mobile installations such as ships,
caravans, aircraft etc. if a risk
assessment of the installation has been
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
~ 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 which may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the guarantee.
Caution. Danger of burning.
High temperatures are produced by
the oven.
~ Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil or
fats, as these are a fire hazard if
allowed to overheat.
~ Do not exceed the recommended
grilling times when using the "Grill Y" /
"Fan grill \" functions.
Grilling for too long can cause food to
dry out and even in some
circumstances to self-ignite. Fire
hazard.
~ Do not use the "Grill Y" / "Fan
grill \" to finish baking par-cooked
rolls or bread or to dry flowers or herbs.
Fire hazard!
Use "Fan plus U" or "Conventional V"
instead.
~ If using alcohol in your recipes, high
temperatures can cause the alcohol to
vaporise and even to ignite on the hot
heating elements.
Alcohol should be burnt off before the
dish is placed in the oven to avoid this
danger.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Cover any food which is left in the
oven to be kept hot. Any moisture in the
food could lead to corrosion damage in
the oven. This also prevents the food
from drying out.
~ If you wish to complete a cooking
process using the residual heat in the
oven, leave the function selector at the
position set and turn the temperature
selector to the lowest setting. Do not
switch the appliance off until the food
has been removed. Increased moisture
in the oven could cause condensation
to form, which could lead to corrosion
in the oven compartment and damage
to the control panel, worktop and
surrounding kitchen furniture.
~ Never line the floor of the oven with
aluminium foil when using
"Conventional V" / "Intensive
bake O" / "Gentle bake K" / "Rapid
heat-up S".
This would cause concentrations of
heat which could cause damage to the
floor of the oven.
For this reason do not place a dish, tin,
or baking tray directly on the oven floor.
If using a tray made by different
manufacturer, make sure that there is a
gap of at least 6 cm between the
bottom of the pan and the floor of the
oven.
~ Never add water to food on a hot
baking tray or directly onto food in a hot
oven. The steam created could cause
serious burns or scalding and the
sudden change in temperature can
damage the enamel.
~
Always ensure that food is suitably
cooked or reheated.
Some foods may contain
micro-organisms which are only
destroyed by thorough cooking at
temperatures over 70 °C for a minimum
of 10 minutes. Therefore when cooking
or reheating foods, e.g. poultry, it is
particularly important that food is fully
cooked through. If in doubt select a
longer cooking or reheating time.
It is important that the heat is allowed to
spread evenly throughout the food
being cooked. This can be achieved by
stirring and/or turning the food during
cooking.
~ If using plastic containers for
cooking, they must be declared by the
manufacturer as being suitable for use
in an oven. Other types of plastic
containers melt at high temperatures,
and could damage the oven.
~ Do not heat up unopened tins or jars
of food in the oven. Pressure can build
up and they may explode, resulting in
injury or damage.
~ Do not push pots and pans around
on the oven floor, as this could damage
the surface.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not lean or sit on an open oven
door, or place heavy items on it. Make
sure that nothing gets trapped between
the door and the oven compartment.
This could damage the oven.
The oven door can support a maximum
load of 15 kg.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
~ Do not use the appliance to heat up
the room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects left near the oven
could catch fire.
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele spare parts
and accessories with this appliance. If
spare parts or accessories from other
manufacturers are used, this will
invalidate the guarantee, and Miele
cannot accept liability.

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.
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!
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 it
with your household waste.
Rather than just throwing these materials
away, please ensure they are offered for
recycling.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
It should be unplugged or disconnected
from the mains electricity supply be a
competent person.

Guide to the appliance
Features
Oven controls
The oven controls are used for
selecting the various cooking
programmes for baking, roasting and
grilling.
Appliances with a clock-timer also
feature the following:
– a time of day display,
– a minute minder,
– an automatic switch-off procedure for
cooking processes.
Cooling fan
A cooling fan will come on
automatically when a cooking
programme is started. The cooling fan
mixes hot air from the oven cavity with
cool room air before venting it out into
the kitchen through vents located
between the appliance door and the
control panel.
The cooling fan will continue to run for a
while after the oven has been switched
off to prevent any humidity building up
in the oven, on the control panel or on
the oven housing unit.
When the temperature in the oven has
fallen sufficiently, the cooling fan will
switch off automatically.
PerfectClean treated surfaces
The following surfaces are all treated
with PerfectClean enamelling:
– the oven compartment and
– the universal tray
12
PerfectClean enamelled surfaces have
very good anti-stick properties and are
much easier to keep clean than
conventional enamel, if cleaned
regularly.
See "Cleaning and care" for more
information.
Catalytic enamelled surfaces
The back panel, roof liner and side
liners (if fitted) are coated with dark
grey catalytic enamel. Soiling from oil
and fat is burnt off these surfaces when
very high temperatures are used in the
oven.
See "Cleaning and care" for more
information.
Retractable controls
The controls are retractable at the 0
position. To release or retract a control
simply press and release it.
The control must be at the zero or
the 12 o'clock position in order to
release or retract it. If it is not you
will damage it!
Energy efficiency rating according to
EN 50304
These appliances are rated energy
efficiency class A in accordance with
EN 50304. Tests were carried out using
Fan plus.

being pulled right out when they only
need to be partially pulled out.
The anti-splash tray should be placed
in the universal tray when grilling or
roasting.
The juices from the food being cooked
collect under the anti-splash tray. This
prevents them from spitting and making
the oven dirty. The juices can then be
used for making gravy and sauces.
Handle
When pushing the tray and rack
back in, always ensure that the
safety notches are at the rear of the
oven (see illustration).
The universal tray and rack can then
only be taken out of the oven by raising
them upwards and then pulling them
out.
The handle makes it easier to take the
tray and rack out of the oven, or to put
them into it. The two prongs at the top
go inside the tray or over the top of the
rack and the U-shaped supports
underneath.

Oven function
Notes
U
Fan plus
– For baking and roasting.
– You can bake and roast on different levels at the
same time.
– Lower temperatures can be used than with
"Conventional V" as the Fan plus system distributes
the heated air around the food.
O
Intensive bake
– For cooking dishes which require a moist topping and
a crisp base such as pizza and quiche lorraine.
– Intensive bake is not suitable for baking biscuits or for
roasting as the juices will become too dark.
V
Conventional
– For baking traditional recipes, e.g. fruit cake,
casseroles.
– Also ideal for soufflés.
– If using an older recipe or cookbook, set the oven
temperature for Conventional, 10°C lower than that
recommended.
The cooking duration does not need to be changed.
K
Gentle bake
– Suitable for bakes and gratins where a cripsy finish is
required.
Y
Grill
– For grilling thin cuts and for browning food.
\
Fan grill
– For grilling larger items, e.g. rolled meat, poultry.
– The hot air from the grill is distributed over the food by
the fan. This enables a lower temperature to be
selected than when using "Grill Y".
P
Defrost
– For the gentle defrosting of frozen food.
S
Rapid heat-up
– For pre-heating the oven compartment.
The oven function required must then be selected.

^ Press and release the function
selector and the temperature
selector.
^ Select "Fan plus U".
^ Select the highest temperature.
On ovens with a clock/tmer you also
have to set the time of day before
the oven can be used.
Before use, please remove
– any stickers from the floor of the
oven, accessories.
– any cork spacers at the sides
above the oven cavity.
– any protective foil from the
oven front.
See "Cleaning and care" for more
information.
Before using the oven for the first time
^ Heat the empty oven for at least an
hour.
Please ensure the room is well
ventilated during this operation.
Close doors to other rooms to
prevent the smell spreading
throughout the house.
^ Wait until the oven has cooled down.
^ Then wipe out the oven cavity with a
solution of hot water and a mild
detergent and then dry it thoroughly
with a clean cloth.
– take all accessories out of the oven
and wash them.
Leave the oven door open until the
oven interior is completely dry.
– then heat the oven up once with
nothing in it. New ovens can give off
a slight smell on first use. Doing this
will dissipate the smells before you
use it to cook food.
On models with a clock/timer, you can
set this procedure to finish
automatically. See "Programming
cooking durations".
^ Before heating it up it is a good idea
to wipe the oven out with a damp
cloth first. This way any dust or bits of
packaging that may have
accumulated in the oven cavity
during storage and unpacking will be
removed.

Operation
Using the oven
Pre-heating
^ Place the food in the oven.
Most dishes can be placed in a cold
oven. They will then make use of the
heat produced during the heating-up
phase.
^ Use the function selector to set the
function.
The oven interior light comes on.
^ Set the temperature with the
temperature selector.
The oven heating and cooling fan will
switch on.
^ Take the food out of the oven when it
is ready.
Turn the function selector and the
temperature selector back to the "0"
position.
The cooling fan will continue to run for a
while after the oven has been switched
off to dispel any moisture from the oven
and prevent it settling on the control
panel or surrounding furniture.
When the temperature in the oven has
fallen sufficiently the cooling fan will
switch off automatically.
It is only necessary to pre-heat the oven
in a few instances:
U – Pre-heating may be
necessary for foods which
cook in less than 20 minutes
and for foods such as puff
pastries and yeast mixtures
where instant heat is required
to make them rise quickly.
– for roasting beef/fillet.
V – It is usually necessary to
pre-heat the oven with
Conventional heat.
Do not use Rapid heat-up S to
pre-heat the oven when baking
pizzas or biscuits and small cakes.
They will brown too quickly.
To pre-heat the oven:
^ Select Rapid heat-up S.
^ Set a temperature.
The oven will start to heat up.

Baking tips
Bakeware
Please refer to the baking chart for
recommended temperature ranges,
shelf levels and durations.
Handling and preparing food
correctly is essential for maintaining
good health.
Only bake cakes, pizza, chips etc
until they are golden brown. Do not
overcook them.
Temperature, baking duration
To achieve even results without
over-browning the food
– always select the lowest
temperature given in the chart.
Do not set a temperature higher than
that recommended. Do not set a
temperature higher than that
recommended. Increasing the
temperature may reduce the cooking
time, but will lead to uneven
browning, and unsatisfactory
cooking results.
– Check if the food is cooked at the
end of the shortest time quoted.
To check if a cake is ready, insert a
wooden skewer into the centre.
It is ready if the skewer comes out
clean, without dough or crumbs
sticking to it.
22
Material
U Most types of heat-resistant tins
O or dishes are suitable.
V Use baking tins made from dark
metal or enamel or from
aluminium with a matt finish.
Heat resistant glass and
ceramic dishes can also be
used.
Bright, shiny metal tins result in
uneven or poor browning and in
some cases cakes might not
cook properly.
Baking parchment
Because of its PerfectClean anti-stick
surface the universal tray does not
need to be greased or lined with baking
parchment for baking.
Baked goods are easily removed when
done.
Baking parchment is only necessary
when baking:
– Anything with a high salt content
(e. g. pretzels, bread sticks),
because sodium can damage the
PerfectClean surface.
– Meringues or biscuits with a high
egg-white content, because they
are more likely to stick.
Baking tips
Universal tray
Frozen food
When baking cakes with fresh fruit
toppings and tall sponge cakes place
the tin in the universal tray to catch any
spillages and keep the oven cleaner.
When baking frozen products such as
cakes, pizza and baguettes, use the
lowest temperature quoted on the
manufacturer's packaging.
Place them on baking parchment on
the rack itself or in the pizza pan (see
"Extra accessories"). Placing them on
the universal tray can cause the metal
to distort. This distortion would increase
with subsequent use.
Retangular tins
Place cakes in rectangular tins with the
longer side across the width of the oven
for optimum heat distribution and even
results.
Shelf levels
The shelf levels are counted from the
bottom of the oven upwards (1 =
lowest, 4 = highest).

them on baking parchment and select
the lowest temperature quoted on the
manufacturer's packaging. Turn several
times during cooking.
* Always use the rack on shelf level 1
for cakes in tins.
** When baking moist cakes, bread etc
do use more than two trays at the
same time.

Roasting tips
Useful tips
Browning
Browning only occurs towards the end
of the roasting time. Remove the lid
about halfway through the roasting time
if a more intensive browning result is
desired.
Standing time
At the end of the programme, take the
roast out of the oven, wrap in aluminium
foil and leave to stand for about
10 minutes. This helps retain juices
when the meat is carved.
Roasting poultry
For a crisp finish, baste the poultry ten
minutes before the end of cooking time
with slightly salted water.
Frozen meat
Do not roast deep frozen meat. Meat
should be thoroughly defrosted before
roasting.

Grilling tips
Preparing food for grilling
Useful tips
Clean, wipe dry and season with
pepper and herbs. Do not season meat
with salt before grilling as this draws
the juices out.
It is best to grill food of a similar
thickness at the same time so that the
grilling time for each item does not vary
too greatly.
Add a little oil if necessary. Do not use
other types of fat as they can get too
dark, burn and cause smoke.
To grill thicker pieces of food more
gradually after an initial high
temperature, continue grilling at a lower
temperature setting or use a lower shelf
runner to allow the food to cook through
to the centre.
Clean fish in the normal way. To
enhance the taste, add a little salt or
squeeze a little lemon juice over the
fish.
Grilling on the rack
One way of finding out how far through
a piece of meat has been cooked is to
press down on it with a spoon:
– If there is very little resistance to the
pressure of the spoon, it is still red on
the inside ("rare").
– If there is some resistance the inside
will be pink ("medium").
– If there is great resistance, it is
throughly cooked through ("well
done").
^ Assemble the rack and anti-splash
tray on the universal tray as
illustrated.
^ Place the food on the rack.
^ Select the required function and set
the temperature.
^ Pre-heat the grill for at least
5 minutes with the door shut before
grilling.
^ Place under the grill and shut the
door.
^ Most items should be turned half way
through cooking.

Defrosting
The Defrost P function uses the fan to
circulate air at room temperature.
Please note:
– Where possible remove the
packaging and put the food to be
defrosted on the universal tray or into
a suitable dish.
– When defrosting poultry, put it on the
rack over the universal tray 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 the defrosted poultry.
Pour it away, and wash the tray, the
sink and your hands. Danger of
salmonella poisoning.
Defrosting times
The time needed for defrosting
depends on the type and weight of the
food, and at what temperature it was
deep frozen. The following chart is for
guidance only. It is important to
manually check the food to ensure it is
thoroughly defrosted.
Chicken, 800 g . . . . . . . . . . 90-120 min.
Meat, 500 g. . . . . . . . . . . . . . 60-90 min.
Meat, 1,000 g . . . . . . . . . . . 90-120 min.
Sausage, 500 g . . . . . . . . . . 30-50 min.

Cake, 500 g . . . . . . . . . . . . . 20-30 min.
Bread, 500 g. . . . . . . . . . . . . 30-40 min.
– Fish does not need to be fully
defrosted before cooking. Defrost so
that the surface is sufficiently soft to
take herbs and seasoning.
,Do not refreeze food once it has
thawed.

Cooking
Cooking ready meals
We recommend using Fan plus U.
Cook frozen desserts and pizza on baking paper on the rack rather than in the
universal tray. Cooking large frozen items on the universal tray can cause the
metal to distort. This distortion will increase with each subsequent use.
Frozen food such as oven chips or croquette potatoes can, however, be
cooked on the universal tray.

Cleaning and care
Miele branded cleaning and
conditioning products are available
from the Miele Spare Parts Department
or via the internet on
www.miele-shop.com.
,Do not use a steam cleaner to
clean the appliance. The steam
could reach electrical components
and cause a short circuit.
The external surfaces of this
appliance are all susceptible to
scratching. Scratches on glass
surfaces could even cause a
breakage in certain circumstances.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can alter or discolour the
outer surfaces.
To prevent damage to your appliance
when cleaning, do not use:
Appliance front
Remove any soiling immediately.
If not, it might become impossible to
remove and could cause the surface
to alter or discolour.
Clean the front using a damp Miele
microfibre E-cloth or with a clean
sponge and a solution of hot water and
washing-up liquid. Wipe dry using a
soft cloth.
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven sprays,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive sponges and
brushes, e.g. pot scourers,
– sharp metal scrapers.
35
Cleaning and care
Accessories
Universal tray
The surface has been treated with
PerfectClean enamel.
Please refer to the section on
"PerfectClean" for information on
cleaning and care.
Rack, runners
Use hot water and a little washing up
liquid, or a non-scouring stainless steel
cleaning agent.
The removable back panel, side
panels and roof liner are coated with a
dark grey catalytic enamel.
See the cleaning instructions for
"Catalytic enamel surfaces".
To make cleaning easier
– remove the oven door,
– dismantle the door,
– take out the runners,
– remove the catalytic enamelled back
panel, side panels and roof liner.
– lower the top heating/grill element.
Instructions for doing so are given
further on in this section.
Seal and inside of the oven door
Oven interior
Allow the oven to cool down before
cleaning. Danger of burning
The oven interior should be cleaned
after each use. If this is not done
subsequent soiling from baking and
roasting will become worse and
make cleaning harder. In extreme
cases soiling will be impossible to
remove or even cause damage to
the surface material.
The oven interior is PerfectClean
enamelled.
Please refer to the section on
"PerfectClean" for information on
cleaning and care.
36
Grease desposits on the seal between
the inside of the oven door and the
oven interior can cause it to become
brittle and cracked.
It is best to clean the seal and the
inside of the door after each with a
Miele E-cloth or a clean sponge and a
solution of hot water with a little
washing-up liquid. Wipe dry using a
soft cloth.
Cleaning and care
PerfectClean
Before using for the first time remove
any stickers from PerfectClean
surfaces.
The enamelled surfaces of the oven
interior and the universal tray have
been treated with a special type of
enamelling called "PerfectClean".
This surface has very good anti-stick
properties and is much easier to keep
clean than conventional oven enamel, if
cleaned regularly.
Food can be taken off it more easily,
and soiling from baking and roasting is
easier to remove.
The following notes on cleaning and
care should ensure that the anti-stick
and easy clean properties of
PerfectClean last for many years.
PerfectClean surfaces can be treated
as you would treat glass.
Food can be sliced or cut up on the
PerfectClean surface in the same way
as on a baking tray with conventional
enamel.
Allow the oven and any accessories
to cool down before cleaning.
Danger of burning.
Normal soiling
Clean as soon as possible after each
use with a dishcloth, soft sponge or a
soft nylon brush, and a solution of hot
water and a little washing up liquid. The
longer soiling is left, the harder it may
become to remove.
Stubborn soiling
Stubborn soiling, e.g. from roasting,
may need to be soaked first with a
damp sponge to loosen it and if
necessary a non-abrasive stainless
steel spiral pad or a scraper suitable for
glass can be used to remove it.
After cleaning, rinse thoroughly with
clean water. The water must run off
the surface easily. Any residual
cleaning agents will hinder this
effect.
Using oven sprays on very stubborn
cleaning
Some oven cleaners contain strong
alkalines and / or abrasive materials.
Because PerfectClean enamel is
designed to be easily cleaned, the use
of these cleaners is not recommended.
However, if you still cannot get the
surface clean, an oven cleaner can be
used, but for a couple of minutes only.
Do not attempt to use on a hot oven or
accessories. Allow the PerfectClean
surfaces to cool down to room
temperature before applying an oven
spray.
37
Cleaning and care
– wire wool or metal scourers,
Remove the catalytic back panel,
side panels and roof liner before
using oven spray. The chemicals
used in oven sprays will damage
catalytic enamel, rendering it
ineffective.
Apply a spray oven cleaner to the
soiled areas. Leave to take effect for a
couple of minutes only!
If necessary use a soft sponge, soft
nylon brush or a scraper suitable for
glass surfaces to loosen the soiling.
Repeat the process if necessary.
After cleaning, rinse thoroughly with
clean water and then dry thoroughly.
Important
For optimum performance of
PerfectClean enamel it is important to
clean the oven and accessories after
each use.
The surfaces will become harder to
clean and the anti-stick properties will
deteriorate if soiling is not removed
after each use and allowed to build up.
In extreme cases cleaning may
become impossible.
The following cause lasting damage
to the surface structure and reduce
the anti-stick effect and must not be
used on PerfectClean surfaces:
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– cleaning agents for ceramic hobs,
38
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents,
– oven spray must not be used in a hot
oven or left on for too long,
– PerfectClean enamelled items must
not be washed in a dishwasher.
Note:
– Soiling such as spilt juices and cake
mixtures are best removed whilst the
oven or tray is still warm. Exercise
caution, make sure the oven is not
hot - danger of burning.
– Spilt fruit juices may cause lasting
discolouration to the surfaces and
roasting can cause matt areas to
appear. Clean these following the
instructions given above and do not
use force to remove them. This
discolouration is permanent but will
not affect the efficiency of the
enamel.
– When baking items with a high salt
content (e.g. continental pretzels)
place them on baking parchment in
the universal tray. Sodium deposits
can cause lasting discolouration to
PerfectClean surfaces.
Cleaning and care
Catalytic enamel surfaces
The back panel, roof liner and side
panels are coated with dark grey
catalytic enamel.
Soiling from oil and fat is burnt off these
surfaces when very high temperatures
are used in the oven. The higher the
temperature, the more effective the
process.
The catalytic coating becomes
ineffective through using
– abrasive cleaning agents,
– hard brushes or abrasive
sponges,
– oven sprays.
Remove the catalytic back panel,
side panels and roof liner from the
oven before cleaning the
PerfectClean oven surfaces with
oven spray.
Note that deposits of spices, syrups
and similar substances are not
removed from the catalytic coating by
this process. These should be removed
by hand whilst still fresh, using a mild
solution of hot water and washing up
liquid applied with a soft sponge or
brush. Remove the panels from the
oven to do this.
Soiling caused by oil and grease
splashes are removed from catalytic
coated surfaces when the oven is
heated to a high temperature. To do
this:
^ Take all accessories out of the oven.
PerfectClean surfaces and becoming
impossible to remove.
^ Select Fan plus U.
^ Set the highest temperature setting.
^ Run the oven for approx. 1 hour. The
length of time will depend on the
level of soiling.
On models with a clock/timer, you can
set this procedure to finish
automatically; see the appropriate
section.
Any remaining soiling will gradually
disappear with each subsequent use of
the oven at high temperatures.
If the catalytic coated panels are
very heavily soiled with oil and
grease, a film will develop on the
oven surface during the cleaning
process which can be wiped off with
warm water and a little washing up
liquid once cool.
^ Finally, clean the PerfectClean
surfaces, the seal and the inside of
the door.
Should the catalytic coating on the
back panel, roof liner or side panels
become ineffective through
improper use or heavy soiling, a
replacement can be obtained from
your Miele dealer or the Miele
Customer Contact Centre.
^ Wipe large deposits of soiling from
the oven interior and the inside of the
door before starting the cleaning
process to avoid them baking onto
39
Cleaning and care
To remove the oven door
The oven door is connected to the oven
by hinges.
^ Then lift the door upwards as far as it
will go.
Do not attempt to take the door off
the hinge guides when it is in a
horizontal position. The guides will
close, and damage the appliance.
Danger of injury.
Before removing the door, the locking
clamps on both hinges have to be
released.
^ Open the door fully.
^ Hold the door securely at both sides
and lift upwards off the hinge guides.
^ To release the locking clamps on the
hinges turn them upwards as far as
they will go until they are at an angle.
See illustration.
40
Do not lift the door off by the handle.
The handle could break and
damage the glass.
Make sure that you lift the door off
equally on both sides.
Cleaning and care
To dismantle the oven door
The oven door has seals on all sides to
protect it.
If, however, condensate has worked its
way in between the glass panes, the
door can be dismantled in order to
clean in between the panes.
Do not use scouring agents, hard
sponges or brushes or sharp metal
tools to clean glass as these can
scratch the surface. Scratches could
cause the glass to break.
Always remove the oven door before
dismantling it.
^ Place the door on a protective
surface (e.g. on a table cloth) to
prevent it getting scratched. The
door handle should line up with the
edge of the table. Make sure the
glass lies flat and does not get
broken during cleaning.
Do not use an oven spray. This will
damage the surface of the
aluminium surrounds.
Ensure that the glass panes are
inserted the correct way round after
cleaning as each side of the pane
has a different coating. Those facing
the oven interior reflect the heat.
^ Unscrew the Torx screws, and
remove the guides, trim and seal.
41
Cleaning and care
^ Clean the glass panes and other
parts with a Miele E-cloth or a clean
sponge and a solution of hot water
with a little washing-up liquid. Wipe
dry using a soft cloth.
Then put the door back together again:
^ Gently lift the inner pane up and out.
^ Push the middle pane into the frame
almost to the end. The material (M-)
number printed on the pane must be
legible in the bottom right hand
corner (see illustration). Fit the
sealing strip into position, then push
the pane in as far as it will go.
^ Pull the pane forwards to remove.
Take care when doing this to prevent
loosening the sealing strips which are
fixed to the top end of the pane on the
right and left near the guides. These
sealing strips prevent the pane slipping
when it is in its frame.
42
Cleaning and care
^ Fit the side seals for the inner pane in
the grooves provided.
^ Fit the trim with the seal in front of the
glass panes.
Make sure that the seal is sitting
correctly to prevent any steam
penetrating inside the door.
^ Insert the inner pane with the printed
taxt facing downwards.
Be careful that the side seals do not
slip and that the pane is pushed in as
far as possible.
^ Put the guides back in position, then
tighten the screws in the trim.
43
Cleaning and care
To refit the door
^ Open the door fully.
^ Flip both locking clamps back up as
far as they will go into a horizontal
position.
Make sure that the notches on the
locking clamps hook into the slots on
the door as illustrated.
^ Hold the door securely at both sides
and carefully fit it back onto the hinge
guides.
Make sure that the door goes back
on straight.
44
It is essential that the locking clamps
lock securely when the door is
re-fitted after cleaning. Otherwise
the hinges could work loose,
resulting in damage to the door.
