Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposal of your old appliance
or machine
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances /
machines 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 or machine. Please do
not therefore dispose of it with your
household waste.
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.
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure that they
are recycled.
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. The
plug must be rendered useless and the
cable cut off directly behind it to
prevent misuse.

first time. They contain important
notes on the installation, safety,
operation and care of the machine.
Keep these instructions in a safe
place and pass them on to any
future owner.
Correct use
The machine is intended for
domestic use only for the
preparation of espresso, cappuccino
and coffee. Any other usage is not
supported by the manufacturer and
could be dangerous. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for damage
resulting from incorrect or improper use
or operation.
Technical safety
Before connecting the machine to
the mains supply, make sure the

the voltage and frequency of the
household supply. Consult a qualified
electrician if in any doubt.
8
The electrical safety of this
machine 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 damage or injury caused by the lack
of or inadequacy of an effective
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
The machine must be built in
before operation to ensure that no
electrical components are accessible.
Do not connect the machine to the
mains electricity supply by an
extension lead.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the machine (e.g.
danger of overheating).
The second electrical connection
socket on the back of the machine
may only be used for connecting a
Miele EGW 4000-14 or 29 plate warmer.
Connection of any other appliance
would damage the machine.
When installed in the mobile unit
(optional extra) the machine is not
suitable for use in the open air.
Warning and Safety instructions
This equipment 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.
The machine is not suitable for
connection to a hot water supply.
This would cause damage.
Installation work and repairs may
only be carried out by suitably
qualified and competent persons in
accordance with current local and
national safety regulations. Repairs and
other work by unqualified persons
could be dangerous and the
manufacturer will not be held liable.
The stopcock must be accessible
for servicing work after the coffee
machine has been built-in.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
machine until after installation,
maintenance or repair work has been
carried out.
The protective sleeve of the water
inlet hose must not be damaged or
kinked. This will cause it to leak.
The machine is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
when:
The integrated Waterproof system
offers protection from water
damage, provided the following
conditions are met:
– the mains fuse is withdrawn,
– The machine is correctly installed
and plumbed in.
– The machine is properly maintained
and parts are replaced where it can
be seen that this is necessary.
– The stopcock is turned off when the
machine is not used for a longer
period of time (e.g. during holidays).
– or the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable),
– it has been switched off at the wall
socket and the plug has been
withdrawn.
Never open the housing of the
machine. Tampering with electrical
connections or components and
mechanical parts is highly dangerous
to the user and can cause operational
faults or electric shock.
If the coffee machine is to be built
in above another appliance, there
must be a full-width, closed shelf
between them (except when it is
combined with a Miele built-in plate
warming drawer).

Warning and Safety instructions
Use
Caution. Danger of scalding. The
spouts and the liquids dispensed
are very hot.
Never look directly at the lighting or
use optical instruments to look at it.
The use of the machine by the
elderly or infirm or those who have
not used the appliance before should
be supervised by a competent and
responsible person to avoid the risk of
injury.
This machine is not a toy! To avoid
the risk of injury, keep children well
away and do not let them play with it or
use the controls. Their skin is very
sensitive and reacts to hot
temperatures. Danger of scalding.
Remember that coffee and espresso
are not suitable drinks for children.
The water piping and the
Cappuccinatore must be rinsed
through and the machine cleaned
thoroughly before the first drink is
prepared.
If using the water container and not
the plumbed in water supply, fill the
water container with cold, fresh tap
water only. Warm or hot water or other
liquids could damage the machine.
Change the water every day to
prevent a build up of bacteria.
If using the water container, do not
on any account use mineral water.
Mineral water will cause serious
limescale deposits to build up in your
machine and damage it.
10
Never put anything other than
roasted espresso/coffee beans in
the coffee bean container. It must never
be filled with ground coffee as this
could damage the grinder.
The ground coffee chute must
never be filled with anything other
than ground coffee or brew unit
cleaning tablets. Otherwise the
machine will be damaged.
Sugar can damage the coffee
machine. Only use pure coffee
beans. Do not use coffee beans which
have been treated with anything
containing caramel, any kind of sugar
or any other substances. Do not put
drinks containing sugar, or instant
coffee in the machine.
Never place a drink with ignited
alcohol under the spouts. The
flames could ignite plastic components
and cause fire damage.
The hot water and steam could
cause scalding. Be very careful
when using these functions. Make sure
you do not come into contact with
steam or hot water. The machine must
never be used for cleaning objects.
Do not use the coffee machine if
the Cappucinatore has been
dismantled. Danger of scalding by hot
steam!
Warning and Safety instructions
Do not use steam cleaning
apparatus to clean the machine.
Pressurised steam could reach the
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
Clean the machine every day to
prevent a build-up of bacteria. All
parts, except the brew unit and the
coffee been container, are dishwasher
safe.
The machine should be descaled
regularly, depending on the
hardness of the water, with the
descaling tablets supplied. The harder
the water, the more often the machine
must be descaled. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for damage
arising from insufficient descaling.
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation
by cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
machine 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.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
Only use the descaling tablets
supplied by Miele and follow the
instructions on the packet carefully. Use
the exact proportions recommended
Otherwise the machine will be
damaged.
Depending on the natural oil
content of the coffee used, the
brew unit could become blocked. It is
important therefore to clean the brew
unit with a cleaning tablet after approx.
200 coffees. (A reminder will appear in
the display).
Used coffee grounds should be put
with the organic rubbish or on the
compost heap, but not emptied down
the sink, as they could block it.
Never swing from or hang anything
on the front when it is open as this
could damage the machine.

Brief description
This machine can be used to prepare
espresso, coffee, cappuccino, milk
froth and hot water .
This machine has a container for coffee
beans so that they can be freshly
ground on demand for every cup to
benefit fully from the flavour.
The ground coffee can also be
moistened with hot water
(Pre-brewing), to develop the aroma.
Then hot water is forced at high
pressure through the ground coffee.
If the machine is used by various
people with different tastes and
preferences, you can programme
specific settings for up to ten
individual users (User profiles).
You can also add a portion of ready
ground coffee should someone prefer
a cup of decaffinated coffee, for
example.
To prevent water from remaining in the
pipes, any water left is expelled,
resulting in a little trickle after the coffee
has been dispensed. The coffee is then
ready.
The used coffee grounds are
automatically emptied into the waste
container. There is no need to remove
the grounds manually after each cup.
The size of cup can be programmed so
that the correct amount is dispensed. If
you decide to use a smaller cup than
the programmed cup size, preparation
can be halted at any time by pressing
"+ C".
12
If two cups of coffee or espresso are
required at the same time, the sensor
next to "2 portions" must be pressed
twice briefly. The machine will fill the
cups in two stages with a slight pause
in between.
The machine can be programmed to
grind from 6 to 14 g of coffee,
depending on the type. The
programmed amount of coffee will be
the same for all sizes of cup (espresso,
coffee, cappucino).
The fineness to which the coffee is
ground can be adjusted.
The lighting can be switched on
independently of operation. The upper
and lower lighting can also be dimmed
independently of one another.
For safety reasons, the electricity
supply to the brewing system and the
coffee grinder cuts out when the
machine door is opened. The machine
also features a system lock to prevent
children from operating it.
The easy to use programming facility
allows, amongst other things, the
language in the display to be changed
and the water hardness to be
programmed in.
Brief description
To ensure that the flavour can develop
fully and be maintained for longer the
machine has an additional function to
automatically rinse and pre-warm the
system when the machine is cold. The
same function is used to flush coffee
remains out of the system and the
spouts after use.
The hot water from the hot water spout
is ideal for pre-warming the cups.
So that the machine remains ready for
use but does not use electricity
unnecessarily, it will switch into Energy
saving mode after a certain length of
time.
You can also programme the machine
to switch on and off at a particular
time every day.
13

prompted to select a language.
^ Touch the sensor beside the language you want and then
touch the sensor on the right beside "Continue".
To get the best out of your coffee machine, and to
set it up for your specific requirements please
continue to work through these operating
instructions. It really is worthwhile doing this as you will then
be able to use your coffee machine to the best advantage.
To ensure that any coffee residues from the factory testing
process are removed from the brewing system, please
throw away the first two cups of coffee.
Switching off
To switch the machine off:
^ Touch the "s" sensor.
The time of day will appear in the display and after a while the
display will go out (depending on the setting, see "Settings:
Customising your machine").
If automatic rinsing is switched on, providing that coffee
has actually been dispensed from the machine, the rinsing
process will begin.
15
Adding water, coffee beans or ground coffee
Please clean the machine thoroughly before filling it (see
"Cleaning and care").
Filling and emptying the water container
The quality of the water plays an important part in
the overall quality of the coffee. If the machine is
plumbed into the mains drinking water supply, the
water container will fill automatically. Empty out the water
container every day. To remind you to do this the following
message will appear in the display when you switch the
machine on: Please empty the water container.
If filling the water container manually (instead of using the
plumbed in water supply), do not use hot water or other
liquids as these could damage the machine. Only use
cold, clean tap water and fill the machine every day. Do
not on any account use mineral water. Mineral water will
cause serious limescale deposits to build up in your
machine and damage it.
^ Open the machine door.
^ Pull the water container forwards to remove it.
16
Adding water, coffee beans or ground coffee
^ If filling the water container manually, take off the lid and fill
the water container with cold, clean tap water up to the
"Max." mark.
A valve at the front of the water container will ensure that
water cannot escape.
^ Put the lid back on and replace the container in the
machine, pushing it right to the back until it clicks into
position.
The water container must click into position and sit in the
machine correctly to ensure the valve is sealed. If you do
not hear it click into position or the water container
protrudes slightly or does not sit flat on the floor, check
whether the surface that the water container sits on is dirty
and clean it if necessary.
Filling the coffee bean container
Only put roasted espresso or coffee beans in the
container. Anything else, including ground coffee, will
damage the grinder.
Do not use coffee beans which have been treated with
caramel, sugar or other substances. Do not put drinks
containing sugar, or instant coffee in the machine. Sugar
will damage the machine.
^ Pull out the coffee bean container.
^ Push back the lid and fill the container with roasted coffee
beans.
17
Adding water, coffee beans or ground coffee
^ Pull the lid forwards again, push the coffee bean container
back into place and close the machine door.
Adding ground coffee
If you want to use ready ground coffee, you can add ground
coffee to the specially designed coffee chute. To do this:
^ Pull the cover for the coffee chute right out of the machine
and open up the lid (1.).
^ Use the scoop supplied and place one level scoop of
ground coffee into the coffee chute (2). Close the lid.
^ Push the cover into the machine and close the machine
door.
The display will ask you if you want to make coffee with
ground coffee.
^ Touch the sensor beside "Yes".
^ The display will change to the main menu and you can
select the type of drink (see "Making coffee").
If you have not added any ground coffee, you
must select "No". Otherwise the machine will
assume that there is ground coffee in the chute
and so only water will be dispensed the next time coffee is
made!
18
Making coffee
Important: the water piping must be rinsed through every
day and the machine cleaned thoroughly before the first
drink of coffee is prepared. Rinsing will take place
automatically if the Automatic rinsing programme option
has been set to "On" and the machine is cold. Hot water
will run out of both spouts into the drip tray once the
machine has heated up.
If the Automatic rinsing programme option has been set to
"Off", select "Maintenance" to rinse the system (see
"Cleaning and care").
Switching on
To switch the machine on:
^ Touch the "s" sensor.
The following message will appear briefly in the display:

ß Settings F
If the Automatic rinsing programme option has been set to
"On" (factory default setting), the machine will be rinsed
through after heating up and the main menu will appear.
19
Making coffee
Pre-warming cups
The cups should always be pre-warmed to allow the flavour
to develop and be retained. The aroma of espresso does not
react well to cold,
The smaller the volume of coffee/espresso, the more
important it is to pre-warm the cup. Use a plate warming
drawer if you have one. If not you can warm them as follows:
^ Place the cup under the hot water spout.
^ Touch the lower sensor on the right until "Hot water" is
visible on the left of the display.
^ Touch the sensor beside "Hot water".
^ Allow a little hot water to run into the cup to warm it and
touch "+ C" to switch off the water.
^ Leave the cup to warm for a while and then pour the water
away.
Adjusting the height of the coffee spouts
You can adjust the height of the coffee spouts to suit the
height of the cup so that the espresso or coffee will not cool
down as quickly as it would if the spouts were further away
from the cup. The crema will also be a better quality if the
coffee does not have so far to go!
^ Gently pull the coffee spouts downwards.
20
Making coffee
Preparing espresso and coffee from freshly ground beans
^ Place a cup under the coffee spouts.
The coffee is always dispensed simultaneously from both
spouts.
^ Touch the sensor beside espresso or coffee.
The machine will now grind the coffee beans, pre-brew the
ground coffee (if the programme option "Pre-brewing" has
been set to "On") and the coffee will then be dispensed from
the coffee spouts.
Do not open the machine door during the brewing
process. This will damage the machine.
To ensure that any coffee residues from the factory testing
process are removed from the brewing system, please
throw away the first two cups of coffee.
Cancelling preparation
^ Touch the "+ C" sensor.
Preparation will be stopped immediately.
You can programme the size of portion dispensed
for espresso, coffee and cappuccino according to
individual and national tastes (see "Setting the
portion sizes").
21
Making coffee
To prepare two cups at the same time
^ Place a cup under each of the coffee spouts.
^ Touch the sensor beside espresso or coffee and then touch
the sensor beside "2 portions".
The machine will now prepare a second portion of espresso
or coffee a few seconds after the first one.
Leave the cups under the coffee spouts until the
main menu appears in the display. The
preparation process is not finished until this
appears.
Making espresso and coffee using ready ground coffee
Before making espresso and coffee using ready ground
coffee ensure that the main menu is showing in the
display.
After adding ground coffee to the specially designed coffee
chute (see "Adding ground coffee"), the following question
will appear in the display:
Have you added ground coffee and
i
do you want to make a drink now?
ß No
^ Touch the sensor beside "Yes".
22
Yes ß
Making coffee
If you have not added any ground coffee, you
must select "No". Otherwise the machine will
assume that there is ground coffee in the chute
and so only water will be dispensed the next time coffee is
made!
^ Place a cup under the coffee spouts.
The coffee is always dispensed simultaneously from both
spouts.
^ Touch the sensor beside espresso or coffee.
The machine will prepare espresso or coffee, which will then
be dispensed from the coffee spouts.
Do not open the machine door during the brewing
process. This will damage the machine.
At the end of the process, the coffee machine will revert
automatically to making coffee with coffee beans.
Cancelling preparation
^ Touch the "+ C" sensor during preparation.
Preparation will be stopped immediately.
To prepare two cups at the same time
Only one portion can be prepared at a time when using
ready ground coffee. This is because the machine will use all
the ground coffee which has been added to the chute to
prepare one coffee.
23
Making coffee
Cappuccino and milk froth
Using for the first time
Before the coffee machine leaves the factory, the pipework is
completely pumped out. For this reason, water must be
pumped into the pipework before using the machine to make
a cappuccino or to froth milk for the first time:
^ Place an empty cup under the Cappuccinatore spout.
^ Touch the sensor beside "Froth".
The Cappuccinatore will now draw water in for a while in
order to fill the pipework. A trickle of water will come out of
Cappuccinatore spout.
^ Once the machine has stopped, start the "Froth" process
again
After a while steam will come out of the Cappuccinatore
spout and there will now be water in the system. You can now
prepare a cappuccino or froth milk.
24
Making coffee
Cappuccino
To prepare a cappuccino you will need a large china or
porcelain cup and a jug of milk.
Froth is best made from cold, skimmed or
semi-skimmed milk.
Because the milk needs to be frothed, only one portion
of Cappuccino can be prepared at one time.
^ Place a jug of milk jug under the Cappuccinatore suction
tube and a cappuccino cup under the Cappucinatore
spout.
^ Touch the sensor beside "Cappuccino".
The milk will be drawn up the suction tube, frothed in the
Cappuccinatore, and then dispensed into the cup whilst the
beans are grinding.
When you have sufficient froth in the cup, stop the
milk frothing process by touching the "+ C"
sensor.
^ Then place the cappuccino cup under the two coffee
spouts and touch the sensor beside "ok".
Your cappuccino is now ready!
25
Making coffee
Frothing milk
To froth milk separately, use a cold, stainless steel jug that
narrows towards the top. Froth is best made from cold,
semi-skimmed milk.
^ Fill the glass jug supplied with cold milk and place it under
the Cappuccinatore suction tube. Place a stainless steel
jug under the Cappuccinatore spout.
^ Touch the sensor beside "Froth".
The milk will be drawn up the suction tube, frothed in the
Cappuccinatore, and then dispensed into the stainless steel
jug.
When you have sufficient froth in the jug, stop the
milk frothing process by touching the "+ C"
sensor.
Frothing milk and preparing coffee / espresso at the same time
You can froth milk and prepare coffee / espresso at the same
time (the steam system must be switched on via "Settings")
by first touching the sensor beside the drink you want to
prepare and then touching the lower sensor on the right
beside "Froth".
After frothing milk or making cappuccino
Always clean the Cappucciantore system
immediately after use, as it is harder to clean once
milk has dried on. Dried on milk can also block
the Cappuccinatore system resulting in poor frothing results
or even preventing it from working (see "Cleaning and care").
26
Setting the coffee grinder
A good espresso or coffee with a thick, even crema (froth)
depends not only on the quality, pressure and temperature of
the water and the quality of the coffee beans, but also on the
quantity of beans and how finely they are ground.
The crema should have an even colour with dark stripes
running through it.
You can set the amount of coffee beans to be ground in the
main menu (see "Settings: Customising your machine "Amount of coffee").
Always adjust the amount of beans to be ground one
stage at a time only and then let the machine grind this
quantity before adjusting the amount again. Otherwise the
machine will be damaged.
There are various ways to tell whether the coffee grinder is set
correctly:
– If espresso or coffee flows too quickly into the cup, it
means that the coffee has been ground too coarsely and
the pressure is not sufficient. The grinder should be set on
a finer setting.
– If espresso or coffee only trickles into the cup, the coffee
has been ground too finely and the coffee will be bitter. The
grinder should be set on a coarser setting.
– If the crema is evenly coloured but pale, this is also a sign
that the coffee beans have been ground too coarsely.
– If the crema is very dark brown on one side, graduating
almost to white on the other, it suggests that coffee beans
have been ground too finely.
27
Setting the coffee grinder
To alter the grinder setting
^ push the slide control to the left (for finer grinding) or to the
right (for coarser grinding).
You should be able to feel the notches when moving the slide
control.
If the slide refuses to move,
^ close the machine and dispense a cup of espresso coffee.
Then try the slide control again.

Amount of coffee
Both the flavour and the crema (froth) on the coffee depend
on the quantity of ground coffee used.
6 to 14 grammes of coffee beans are used per cup,
depending on the type of coffee. The greater the quantity, the
stronger the espresso, coffee or cappuccino.
The quality of the crema is also affected by the quantity:
– If the crema is evenly coloured but pale, it could mean that
too little coffee is being used.
34
Settings: Customising your machine

Setting the water hardness
For trouble-free operation of the coffee machine, and to
ensure that the descaling reminder appears in the display at
the appropriate time, it is important to set the water hardness
level. The water hardness level indicates how much calcium
is dissolved in the water. The higher the calcium content, the
harder the water, and the harder the water, the more often the
machine will need to be descaled.
The machine measures the amount of water which has been
taken in (including the amount required for producing steam).
The amount of water which the machine can use before it
needs to be descaled will depend on the water hardness
level set. Less water will be used in hard water areas than in
soft water areas.
42
Settings: Customising your machine
Your local water authority will be able to tell you the hardness
of water in your area. Alternatively, you can measure the
hardness yourself using the enclosed test strip:
^ Dip the strip in your drinking water for approximately a
second, then shake off any excess water. The result will be
evident after about a minute.
If the water is harder than 40 °d / 7.0 mmol/l, limescale will
build up more rapidy than with soft water. Descaling will
need to be carried out more regularly than stated to
prevent limescale damage to the machine.

Setting the portion sizes
The flavour of the coffee produced depends on the type of
coffee, the amount of coffee used, how finely the beans are
ground and particularly, the quantity of water used. Not all
cups are the same size. To ensure the machine uses the right
amount of water to suit your taste and your cups, you can
programme in the amount to be used.
Espresso a quantity of water of between approx. 30 up to
125 ml can be set,
Coffee a quantity of water of between approx. 30 up to
250 ml can be set,
Hot water a quantity of between approx. 30 up to 250 ml
can be set,
Cappuccino - cappuccino uses (milk) froth and espresso.
The time for frothing milk can be individually controlled. The
quantity of water for espresso can be between approx. 30
up to 125 ml .
^ Place the cup you want to use under the coffee spouts
(with cappuccino sized cups, place the cup underneath
the Cappuccinatore spout first of all).
^ Touch the sensor beside the type of drink for which you
want to set the water quantity until "Programme the amount"
appears under the type of drink in the display.
^ Then stop touching the sensor.

particular type of drink will now be dispensed every time this
drink is prepared.
If you do not stop the flow of water whilst setting the amount,
the flow will stop automatically when it has reached the
maximum amount possible. This amount is then memorised
for the drink.
50
Cleaning and care
Always allow the machine to cool down before cleaning.
Danger of scalding.
Do not clean the machine with a steam cleaner as this will
damage the machine.
Never use cleaners containing chlorides, acids, soda or
scouring agents. These would damage the surface.
It is important to clean the machine regularly, as the used
coffee grounds will soon go mouldy.
With the exception of the brew unit and the coffee bean
container, all removable parts can be cleaned in a
dishwasher. If the parts are cleaned frequently in a
dishwasher, they can become discoloured from regular
contact with food residues (e.g. tomatoes) in the dishwasher.
Rinsing
If you have set the automatic rinsing function to off because
you do not want the machine to rinse the brewing system
automatically, you will need to rinse the system through
manually. This needs to be done before making the first drink
of the day and also after making the last drink of the day.

Cleaning and care
Water container
Empty the water container daily and - if you are not using the
plumbed in water supply - fill with fresh, cold drinking water
just before use.
When cleaning, make sure that there is no soiling in the
area around the valve. Otherwise the container will not sit
correctly and this could result in water leaking from the
machine.
^ Clean the surface the water container sits on thoroughly.
Waste container
After a certain period of time a reminder to empty the waste
container will appear in the display. The waste container must
be cleaned when this message appears. However it is better
to clean the waste container every day to prevent coffee
grounds from turning mouldy.
There will probably also be water in the waste container left
over from the rinsing process.
Lining the waste container with one or two pieces
of kitchen paper towel will make it easier to tip the
grounds out.
^ Pull the waste container forwards to remove it.
^ Clean the waste container with hot water and a little
washing-up liquid or in the dishwasher and dry with a cloth.
52
Cleaning and care
^ Also clean the now accessible area in the machine where
the waste container sits, thoroughly.
^ Push the waste container fully back into the machine.
Drip tray
There is a sensor in the drip tray which causes a message to
appear in the display when the drip tray is full and needs to
be emptied. Remove the tray and empty and clean it when
this message appears.
However, to avoid a build-up of odours, the drip tray should
be cleaned every day.
After running the last rinse you should leave the drip tray
in position for a while before cleaning it so that you catch
any remaining water from the system.
^ Open the machine door and carefully remove the drip tray
from the machine.
There is a grid in the drip tray. This grid prevents the water
from spilling out of the drip tray when it is being carried.
^ Clean the drip tray and the grid with hot water and a little
washing-up liquid, or in the dishwasher and dry with a
cloth.
Make sure that the metal contact discs at the top of the
drip tray are cleaned and dried properly. These metal
discs send a signal to the machine when the drip tray is
full or if it is not in the machine. The discs will not convey
these messages if they are dirty or damp.
53
Cleaning and care
^ Push the drip tray with the grid along the right hand edge
back into the machine.
^ Close the machine door.
Grille with drip tray cover
^ Take the grille and drip tray cover out and wash them.

through.
Remember to empty the drip tray afterwards.
Thorough cleaning in the dishwasher
The Cappuccinatore needs to be cleaned thoroughly. To do
this, remove the parts from the machine and clean them in
the dishwasher. It is very important to do this regularly to
avoid the Cappuccinatore becoming blocked over time with
dried on milk residues which are not removed by the normal
rinsing cycle.
^ Turn the cover above the spout in the direction of the arrow
a.
^ Carefully pull the Cappuccinatore spout and suction tube
downwards out of the machine b.
60
Cleaning and care

Cleaning and care
Machine front
^ Clean the front of the machine with a solution of hot water
and washing-up liquid applied with a damp cloth. Wipe
everything dry with a soft cloth.
Make sure that no water penetrates behind the display.
E-Cloth
A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available from the Miele UK Spare
Parts Department, which is suitable for cleaning surfaces
such as stainless steel, glass, plastic and chrome without the
use of chemicals.
Avoid the following on all types of front:
– cleaning agents containing soda, acids or chlorides,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. powder cleaners and cream
cleaners.
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers, or sponges which
have been previously used with abrasive cleaning agents.
When descaling the machine, wipe up any spillages or
splashes of descaling agent immediately.
To prevent the risk of scratches and damage to stainless
steel and aluminium surfaces, pay particular attention to
the following cleaning instructions.
Stainless steel fronts
The machine front is susceptible to scratches and abrasion.
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. N.B. Do not use
stainless steel cleaning agents on the controls.
To help prevent re-soiling, a conditioning agent for
stainless steel, such as Neoblank (available from
the Miele Spare Parts Department) can also be
used. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the label.
63
Cleaning and care
Aluminium fronts
Aluminium is affected by the way that light falls on it, by the
surrounding environment and by the angle you observe it
from.
Aluminium surfaces and controls may suffer discolouration
or damage if soiling is left on for too long. Remove any
soiling straight away.
The machine front is susceptible to scratches and abrasion.
Avoid:
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– cleaning agents containing descaling agents,
– dishwasher cleaner.
64
Descaling the machine
The machine should be descaled regularly to ensure that it
functions correctly. It will remind you when this needs to be
carried out.
When only 50 portions can be made before the next
descaling programme has to be run, the following message
will appear in the display for the first time: "50 drinks can be
made. Please run the descaling programme!".
This message will now appear (counting down) after each
drink (coffee, espresso, cappuccino, hot water, steam) is
dispensed. If you let it run to 0, the machine will stop working.
Touch the sensor beside "Descale" to start the
descaling programme. If you do not have time to
wait until the descaling programme has finished (it
takes approx. 20 minutes) you can switch the machine off.
However, you will not be able to make any more drinks until
the descaling programme has been carried out.
You should only use the descaling tablets supplied with
the machine. These have been specially formulated for
use in this coffee machine and are available from your
Miele dealer or the Miele Spare Parts Department.
Other types of descaling agents will damage the machine
and affect the taste.
Follow the instructions on the package carefully to avoid
damaging the machine.
You must use the funnels provided with the machine.
Otherwise there is a risk of descaling agent splashing the
front of the machine. When descaling the machine, wipe
up any spillages or splashes of descaling agent
immediately. to avoid damaging the machine front.
After running the descaling programme, remember to
clean the water container and the drip tray thoroughly
to remove any descaling residues.
65
Descaling the machine
To run the descaling programme
^ If you want to descale the machine before it has heated
up touch the sensor beside "Descale" in the initial menu to
begin the descaling programme.
^ If you want to descale the machine without being
prompted to do so by the reminder (because your water
is very hard, for example), select the "Maintenance" option,
^ Touch the sensor beside "Descale" and then the sensor
beside "ok".
The display will guide you through the whole procedure.
Please follow the instructions to, for example, empty the drip
tray, fill the water container etc.
If the machine has already heated up, it will cool down
for approx. 10 minutes before starting to run the
descaling programme.
The descaling programme cannot be cancelled once the
"OK" Sensor has been touched. The programme has to be
completed through to the end. This is a safety measure to
ensure that the machine is fully descaled, and is important
to protect the machine and ensure it functions correctly.
^ When the message appears in the display asking you
– to add descaling agent to the water container, take the
water container out and fill it up to the k mark with
lukewarm water. (Do not use less water than this
because this would cause the descaling programme to
finish before it has been completed properly).
Add 2 descaling tablets to the water. Allow the tablets to
dissolve fully before shutting the lid and putting the water
container back in the machine.
66
Descaling the machine
^ Fit the descaling funnels under the spouts as illustrated.
The bottom of the funnel fits into the drip tray to enable the
descaling agent to be collected in it.
During the descaling programme, water containing descaling
agent will run out of the hot water and the cappuccinatore
spouts. This is followed by an activation period before a little
more descaling agent is dispensed.
^ When a message asking you to fill the water container
with fresh water appears, you should remove the
container and rinse it out thoroughly with clean water. Make
sure all traces of descaling agent are removed, and then fill
it up to the k mark with clean tap water.
Water will flow out of the spouts during the rinsing process.
The drip tray will need to be emptied several times during
this process.
When descaling has been completed, Programme finished
will appear in the display. Follow the instructions in the
display. The machine will then run a short rinsing cycle.
The pipework is completely pumped out during the
descaling process. For this reason, water must be
pumped back into the pipework before using the machine
to make a cappuccino or to froth milk after descaling. (See
"Making coffee: Cappuccino and milk froth").

. . . the machine suddenly switches itself off.
The machine will switch itself off automatically after a certain
length of time if it is not being used. This time depends on the
switch off time which has been programmed.
The water temperature could be too high. The machine will
remain switched off until the water has cooled down
sufficiently.
There could be stones in amongst the coffee beans, in which
case the machine will switch itself off automatically within 20
seconds to avoid damage.
Call the Miele Service Department.
^ Is the plug correctly fitted in the socket?
. . . the lighting suddenly switches itself off.
The lighting will switch off automatically after 10 minutes of
inactivity unless a different light setting has been selected.
. . . you cannot read the display.
If the machine is installed too low down, the display can be
hard to see.
^ Try and improve this by adjusting the display contrast or
brightness.
. . . no water or steam comes out of the Cappuccinatore
spout.
^ Remove the water container and replace it.
The spout is blocked if still no water or steam comes out or if
only a little comes out.
^ Clean the Cappuccinatore as described in "Cleaning and
care - Cappuccinatore". Make absolutely sure that none of
the small holes in the parts are blocked. You can knead the
soft parts or blow through them to unblock them.

. . . the espresso is dispensed too quickly.
The coffee is too coarsely ground.
^ Set the grinder on a finer setting.
. . . the espresso is dispensed too slowly.
The coffee is too finely ground.
^ Set the grinder on a coarser setting.
. . . the espresso is not hot enough.
^ Have the cups and system been pre-warmed?
The smaller the cup, the more important it is to pre-warm it.
^ Check the temperatures the different types of coffee have
been set to.
^ Check whether the brew unit is blocked. Clean it if it is
blocked.
. . . coffee is not dispensed, even though the beans have
been ground and there is sufficient water in the water
container.
^ Check whether the slide control for the fineness of the
coffee is at the finest setting or if the amount of coffee to be
ground has been set at the largest amount.
Because the process is time controlled, it is possible that the
process has taken so long that there is no time left for
brewing.
70

^ Buff the contacts a little, e.g. with fine glasspaper or emery
cloth.
^ If this fault message continues to appear, please call the
Miele Service Department.
. . . the machine does not rinse through when switched on,
even though the Automatic rinsing programme is set to
"On".
If the temperature of the machine is still above 60 °C, rinsing
cannot take place.
. . . water stopped flowing whilst programming in the
amount to use.
Water flow stops automatically when the maximum fill quantity
is reached. The maximum quantity is stored in memory.
There is insufficient water in the water container (when using
the water container and not the plumbed in water supply).
The quantity used previously was not saved to memory.
. . . there is water in the waste container.
This is not a fault. The water is left over from the brewing and
cleaning process.
. . . there is a lot of residual "coffee water" in the waste
container.
If the slide control for the grinder is set to very fine, too much
residual "coffee water" can be left in the waste container.
^ If a very fine grinder setting has not been set, call the Miele
Service Department.
. . . the descaling process was started by mistake.
The descaling programme cannot be cancelled once you
have touched the "OK" sensor. The programme has to be
completed through to the end. This is a safety measure to
ensure that the machine is fully descaled, and is important to
protect the machine and ensure it functions correctly.
72
Problem solving guide
. . . the coffee machine makes loud noises during the
descaling programme.
During the descaling programme you will hear loud noises as
water is flushed through the machine under high pressure.
These are no cause for concern.
. . . the heating-up time is getting longer, the amount of
water coming through is incorrect and the machine is not
performing properly.
The machine needs descaling.
. . . no water comes out of the spouts.
The filters in the brew unit are dirty.
^ Clean the filters by rubbing them with your finger.
. . . the brew unit or the waste container cannot be pulled
out of the machine.
The brew unit is not in the correct position. This can happen
if, for example, the machine door is opened during grinding
or brewing.
^ Close the machine door. The brew unit will position itself
correctly automatically.
. . . the crema is not as it should be.
^ Check that the grinder setting is not too coarse or too fine.
^ Check the temperatures the different types of coffee have
been set to. If the temperature is too high, there will be dark
patches in the crema.
– The coffee is no longer fresh enough.
– The coffee blend is unsuitable.
– The coffee spouts have been set too high.
73
Problem solving guide
. . . the fault message 10 or 17 appears.
Water has not been taken in.
^ The water container has not been correctly positioned
inside the machine. Remove the water container and push
it back into position again, making sure it is positioned
correctly.
^ This error message also appears if the water container was
not correctly filled for descaling. Fill the water container up
to the k mark.
^ After you have remedied the problem, switch the machine
off and then back on again after a short while. Select the
process you want again.
If this fault message still continues to appear in the display,
repeat the steps described above. If, despite this, the fault
message still appears in the display, call the Miele Service
Department.
. . . fault message 94 appears in the display.
There is a problem with the water inlet for the plumbed in
water supply.

of alignment and damage the seal. Align the door using the
hinges (see "Installation: Adjusting the door hinges").
74
Problem solving guide
. . . too much crema has formed and is overflowing above
the coffee spouts.
Some types of coffee will produce too much crema if the
coffee or espresso temperature is set to maximum and the
amount of coffee to be ground is set too high.
^ Set a lower temperature and reduce the amount of coffee to
be ground.
. . . the milk froth is "spitting".
Perhaps the system was not filled with water before the first
drink was made. Fill the system with water as described in
"Making coffee: Cappuccino and milk froth").
. . . milk spits out of the jug when making the first froth of
the day.
If the door was opened during the heating up phase,
pressure will have built up in the steam valve. When the valve
was opened, this pressure caused the milk to come out of the
cappuccino spout too fast.
. . . the slide control for the grinder setting will not move.
^ Close the machine door and dispense a cup of espresso
coffee.
The grinder setting slide control will now move.
. . . the brew unit cannot be removed.

Installation
Building-in and combination options
The coffee machine is designed to be built into a tall unit.
It can also be combined with other Miele built-in appliances.
If the coffee machine is to be built in above another
appliance, there must be a full-width, closed shelf between
them (except when it is combined with a Miele built-in plate
warming drawer).
The plate warmer can be connected directly to a socket at
the rear of the coffee machine using a special connection
cable (available as an optional accessory from your Miele
Dealer or the Miele Spare Parts Department) so that it can
be in use or ready for use whenever the coffee machine is
being used. Your cups will always be pre-warmed!
Only a Miele EGW 4000-14 or -29 plate warmer can be
connected directly to this coffee machine. Connection of
any other appliance would damage the machine.
The machine can also be installed in a mobile unit which is
available to purchase.
82
Installation
Installation
Before installation make sure that there is no power supply
to the machine. This also applies should it ever need to be
taken out of its housing unit.
The machine must be built in before it is operated.
Two allen keys (size 3 and 5) are required for installation.
^ Using the large allen key, unscrew all four feet out by about
2 mm.
^ Push the machine all the way into the niche until there is a
resistance. Then check the height to make sure it is sitting
centrally in the unit and that it is level.
If this is not the case, realign the 4 feet underneath the
machine using the large allen key.
The feet can be unscrewed by up to approx. 10 mm.
^ If the furniture unit walls are 19 mm thick you will need to
drill four holes in the sides for securing the machine. To
mark the position of these holes:
– Align the machine in the niche. Screw the side socket
screws inside the machine in a little so that they make
indents in the side walls and then unscrew them again.
– Take the machine out of the niche and drill ø 4.5 mm holes,
2 mm deep where you made the indentations.
^ Plumb the machine into the mains water supply.
83
Installation
^ Connect the machine to the electricity supply.
^ Push it all the way into the niche until you feel resistance.
^ Open the machine door and partially tighten the side
socket screws.
^ Carefully turn the lower socket screws a to centre the
