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.
5
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.
6
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 well away from the
appliance at all times. This is
particularly important when the
appliance is in operation as children
might attempt to open the door.
Use the safety features to prevent
children operating the appliance or
altering the settings.
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.
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. 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.

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.
8
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
electricity 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.

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.
10
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.

Before using for the first time
Setting the water hardness
The steam oven is set at the factory for
very hard water (Setting IV).
If your water hardness level differs from
this you will need to re-programme the
appliance.
You can use the test strip supplied to
check the water hardness level, or your
local water supplier will be able to
advise you of the water hardness of
your area.
The water hardness is shown as
settings I to IV equivalent to the
German scale 1 to >21 °dH
(0.2 - 3.8 mmol/l).

Before 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 at the factory with a
conditioning agent. 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.
18
Now fill the water container with mains
tap water (see "Before each use") and
then run the Cook Universal (100 °C)
programme 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.
Brief operating instructions
The main operating steps are outlined
in brief below. Please refer to the
following pages for more detailed
information.
A When using a perforated cooking
container, push the condensate tray
onto the lowest shelf runner to catch
any drips.
B Fill the water container with water.
C Push the cooking container with the
food onto one of the runners.
D Switch on the appliance.

appliance will start automatically.
19
Operation
Before each use
Pre-heat
^ When using a perforated cooking
container, push the condensate tray
onto the lowest shelf runner to catch
any drips.
The steam oven can be set so that it
pre-heats to approx. 40°C. To use this
function, you will need to alter the
default setting in the Settings menu
(see "Settings - Pre-heat").
When the pre-heat function has been
activated, the main menu will appear
after the appliance is switched on. If no
steam oven function is selected within a
few seconds, the pre-heat process will
begin.
^ Fill the water container.
You do not need to remove the insert.
Only use mains tap water. Never
use distilled or mineral water.
The water level must be between the
two markings (min. 0.75 l and max.
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 programme 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.
^ Always use both hands when
carrying the water container, and
push it into the appliance until it
connects. Take care not to let any
water spill out.
20
Selecting a steam oven
function
^ Place the food in the oven.
^ Switch the appliance on if you have
not preheated it.
The main menu will appear.
^ Select the function you want (e.g.
Cook vegetables).
Operation
Setting the temperature
The recommended temperature is
highlighted. However, you can change
this to a different temperature within the
permitted range if you want.
^ Confirm the recommended
temperature with "OK".
If you do not want to use the
recommended temperature you can
enter another temperature with +/- or
the keypad and then confirm it with
"OK".
You can also change the recommended
temperature for a function permanently
in the Settings menu (see "Settings Recommended temperatures").
Increase the recommended
temperature for the Cook fish
function fto 100 °C or 212 °C when
cooking fish with liquid in a solid
container.
You can either use the sensor next to +
or the keypad to enter the duration.
^ Enter the duration, e.g. 10 minutes.
^ Confirm with "OK".
If you do not enter the duration within a
few seconds the entry field will go out.
Touch the sensor next to "Duration".
The charts later in this booklet and the
cookery book give suggested cooking
durations for various types of food.
Remember that the cooking duration is
not dependent on the amount of food,
but on the size of the food. For
example, large potatoes will take longer
to cook than smaller potatoes.
To achieve good results using the
durations quoted, please do not cook
quantities of food for more than 8-10
servings. Cooking durations will also
vary depending on the cooking
container used (see "Suitable
containers").
Setting a cooking duration
After you have confirmed the
(recommended) temperature, the
display will change to show the screen
for setting the cooking duration
(Duration). A duration of between 1
minute (0:01) and 6 hours (6:00) can be
set.
Durations of more than 59 minutes must
be entered in hours and minutes.
Example:
Duration of 80 minutes = 1:20.
21
Operation
Starting a programme
Delaying the start
The appliance is set up at the factory
so that it starts automatically as soon
as you have confirmed the cooking
duration.
You can delay the start of a
programme. The steam oven will then
switch on and off automatically.
If you prefer to start all programmes
manually, you will need to change the
standard default setting for Start to
"manual" in the Settings menu (see
"Settings - Start").
To delay the start you can either enter
the Start time or the Finish time. Select
Start time to specify the time you want
cooking to start or select Finish to
specify the time you want cooking to
end.
After the start you will hear the noise of
the fan and then noises similar to those
of a kettle boiling as steam is
generated.
Please note that the difference between
the Start time and Finish is the cooking
duration selected plus the heating-up
time which the steam oven calculates.
During the heating-up phase you can
follow the rise in temperature in the
oven compartment in the display.
It is only possible to delay the start
within 90 seconds after making an
entry. This function cannot be used if
the cooking compartment is still too hot
at the end of a cooking programme.
As soon as the set temperature has
been reached, the cooking phase
begins and the duration starts counting
down.
When preparing food which has been
refrigerated or frozen, the temperature
in the cooking compartment will fall
initially before starting to rise gradually.
Please note that the total duration, i.e.
the time between the beginning and
end of a function, is made up of the
heating-up time and the set cooking
duration added together. The heating
up time and therefore also the total
duration will depend on the quantity
and the initial temperature of the food
being cooked.
22
^ Select the function, temperature and
duration in the normal way.
^ Then select "Start time" or "Finish" and
enter the time you want the cooking
programme to begin or end at.
^ Confirm with "OK".
Operation

Interrupting a programme
You can interrupt a programme at any
time by opening the door.
You can continue the programme by
closing the door.
When the door is closed, the pressure
has to equalise, which can cause a
whistling sound.
The appliance will heat up again. Once
the set temperature has been reached,
the display will change to show the
cooking duration remaining as it counts
down.
Changing the settings during
operation
^ Select "Change".
^ Confirm with "OK".
^ Select the setting you wish to change
and then enter the change.
^ Confirm with "OK".
The heating will be switched off and the
cooking duration remaining stored in
memory.
Steam will escape when the door is
opened. Step back from the steam
oven and wait until the steam has
dissipated.
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.
23
Operation
At the end of the cooking
duration
Shortly before the end of the set
cooking duration, the steam will be
reduced and the door will open slightly.
At the end of the duration you will hear
a buzzer. The door will start to close
shortly afterwards.
Wait until "Programme finished" appears
in the display before opening the door
and removing the food.
The steam oven is set at the factory so
that if it is not switched off at the end of
a cooking programme, it will maintain a
temperature of 70 °C for a maximum of
15 minutes to keep food warm. Please
note that delicate food, especially fish,
can continue cooking whilst being kept
warm.
If you do not want to use the "Steam
reduction" and/or "Keeping warm"
facility you will need to change the
default setting in the Settings menu
(see "Settings - Steam reduction and
Keeping warm").
When putting cooking containers or
the condensate tray into the steam
oven or taking them out, take care
not to spill the contents. Avoid

Danger of burning and scalding.
24
After use
^ Switch off the appliance.
^ Remove the condensate tray and
empty it.
^ Push the water container upwards
slightly and remove it from the
appliance. Empty it.
^ After each use, clean and dry the
whole appliance as described in
"Cleaning and care".
^ Leave the door open until the

Please note that the fan will continue to
run for a while after the appliance has
been switched off. If you want to
reduce the run-on time, you can do so
by removing the water container as
soon as you have switched the
appliance off.
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.

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.
– 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.
30
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.

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).

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.
– 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.
– Yeast dough can be put in the oven
to prove.
Select Cook Universal and reduce
the recommended temperature to 40
°C. Cover the dough.

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 Defrost 60 °C.
^ 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!
– Food which does not drip can be
placed on the rack or in a dish once
the wrapping has been removed.
38
– 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 defrosting.
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 frozen pre-cooked meals
according to the manufacturer's
instructions.
– Defrost baked goods in a sealed
freezer bag.

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 Cook vegetables 100 °C and
confirm.
^ 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 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.
40
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 Cook Universal 100 °C and
confirm.
^ 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.

Cleaning and care
General notes
Appliance front
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.
The appliance front 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.
Make sure the appliance is completely
dry before closing the door.
See data plate for type of front.
Glass
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.
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
stainless steel.
To help prevent resoiling, a conditioning
agent for stainless steel can also be
used.
Follow the manufacturer's intructions.
Aluminium / Titanium
These materials are susceptible to
scratching and to damage from alkalis
and acids. It is therefore essential to
clean them with care, as described
above. Do not use cleaning agents for
stainless steel or descaling agents on
these surfaces. Soiling should be wiped
off as soon as possible, as leaving it
could result in the surface discolouring
or altering.
See "Optional accessories" for details
of accessories for cleaning and care.

Cleaning and care
Oven interior
Automatic door release
Dry the oven interior, oven interior roof,
door seal, drip channel, inside of the
door and the compartment for the water
container after each use. Use a sponge
or absorbent cloth to wipe off the
condensate which has built up.
Make sure that the door release does
not get clogged with food deposits.
Wipe off any deposits immediately with
a sponge and a mild solution of
washing up liquid and warm water.
Wipe with clean water.
Remove grease deposits with a mild
solution of washing up liquid and warm
water and wipe with clean water.
Side runners
Over time, the floor heater can become
discoloured by drops of liquid. This
discolouration is easy to remove with a
proprietary cleaner for ceramic
surfaces, such as the Miele ceramic
hob cleaner (see "Optional
accessories"). Follow the
manufacturer's instructions. After
cleaning, wipe the area with a damp
cloth to remove any cleaning agent
residues.
The door seal can become porous and
brittle over time. If this is the case, it
should be replaced with a new seal.
Door seals can be ordered from the
Miele Spare Parts Department. See
back page for contact details. When
fitting a new seal, make sure the join is
at the top.
Condensate tray, rack and
cooking containers
The condensate tray, rack and cooking
containers should be washed and dried
each time they are used.
They are all dishwasher safe.
44
The side runners are easy to remove
which makes it easier to clean the sides
of the oven.
Proceed as follows:
^ Pull on the fixing knob to release it.
Remove the runner by first pulling it
to the side a and then out from the
back b .
The runners can be cleaned with water

insert thoroughly before replacing it
in the water container. When
replacing the insert (see illustration),
guide it in at an angle a and push
the side with the opening downwards
b.
b
a
Do not immerse the water container
in water or clean it in a dishwasher.
It is important to empty the water
container after each use for hygiene
reasons, and also to prevent
condensate building up in the
appliance.
Do not use scouring pads or hard
brushes.
45
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.
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.
46
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.
Cleaning and care
Descaling
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.
With aluminium or titanium fronted
appliances (see data plate) ensure
that the descaling agent does not
come into contact with these
surfaces as this could cause marks.
However, should any descaling
agent get onto these surfaces, 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.
You will still be able to use it a certain
number of times after which it will lock
out.
If you want to descale the appliance
before it locks out, you can select the
Descale function.
^ Fill the water container with 1 litre of
descaling solution. To make the
solution, use cold water and
descaling tablets, as instructed on
the packet, or the appropriate
amount of citric acid based
household descaling agent.
^ Confirm "Continue".
It is only possible to cancel the
descaling process during the first
minute. After that the process cannot
be cancelled.
Do not switch the appliance off
during the descaling process. If it is
switched off before the end of the
process, the whole process will have
to be started from the beginning
again.
After 12 minutes, the appliance will
prompt you to fill it with fresh water.
^ Remove the water container and
empty it. Remove the insert.
^ Rinse the water container and the
insert thoroughly.
^ Replace the insert and fill the water
container with 1 litre of water. Push
the water container into the appliance
until it connects.
The descaling process will continue
automatically when the water container
is pushed back into the appliance.
After descaling:
^ Open the door.
^ Remove and empty the water
container.
^ Switch the appliance off, and then
dry it thoroughly.
^ Push the water container into the
appliance until it connects.

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.
48
... 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.

Important
The fuse cover must be refitted when
changing the fuse, and if the fuse cover
is lost, the plug must not be used until a
suitable replacement is obtained. The
colour of the correct replacement cover
is that of the coloured insert in the base
of the plug, or the colour that is
embossed in words on the base of the
plug (as applicable to the design of
plug fitted).
The electrical safety of this appliance
can only be guaranteed when
continuity is complete between the
appliance and an effective earthing
system, which complies with local and
national regulations. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
tested regularly and where there is any
doubt the household wiring should be
inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system such as electric shock.
Replacement fuses should be ASTA
approved to BS 1362 and have the
correct rating. Replacement fuses and
fuse covers may be purchased from
your local electrical supplier.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
incorrect installation or connection.
