Caring for the environment
Disposing of the packaging
materials
Disposing of your old
appliance
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also 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.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre.
Take care not to damage the pipework
at the back of it before or during
transportation to an authorised
collection depot. In this way, refrigerant
in the pipework and oil in the
compressor will be contained, and will
not leak into the environment.
Please ensure that your old appliance
presents no danger to children while
being stored awaiting disposal. See
"Warning and Safety instructions" for
more information.

Warning and Safety instructions
This appliance complies with all statutory safety requirements.
Inappropriate use can, however, lead to personal injury and
damage to property.
To avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the appliance,
please read these instructions carefully before installation and
before using it for the first time. They contain important
information on installation, safety, use and maintenance.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning and Safety instructions.
Keep these instructions in a safe place and ensure that new users
are familiar with the content. Pass them on to any future owner.
Correct application
~ The appliance is intended for use in domestic households and
similar working and residential environments. It is not intended for
outdoor use.
~ This appliance is intended for domestic use only for cooling and
storing food and drink.
Any other usage is not supported by the manufacturer and could be
dangerous.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The appliance is not suitable for storing and keeping cool
medicines, blood plasma, laboratory preparations or other such
materials or products. Incorrect use of the appliance for such
purposes can cause deterioration of the items stored. The appliance
is also not suitable for use in areas susceptible to explosion.
Miele cannot be held liable for any damage resulting from incorrect
or improper use or operation.
~ The appliance can only be used by people with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, if they are supervised whilst using it, or have been
shown how to use it in a safe way and recognise and understand the
consequences of incorrect operation.
Safety with children
~ Children under 8 years of age must be kept away from the
appliance unless they are constantly supervised.
~ Children 8 years and older may only use the appliance
unsupervised if they have been shown how to use it in a safe way
and recognise and understand the consequences of incorrect
operation.
~ Children must not be allowed to clean or maintain the appliance
unsupervised.
~ Please supervise children in the vicinity of the appliance and do
not let them play with it.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Danger of suffocation. Packaging, e.g. plastic wrappings, must
be kept out of the reach of babies and children. Whilst playing,
children could become entangled in packaging or pull it over their
head and suffocate.
Technical safety
~ The coolant system is tested for leaks. The appliance complies
with statutory safety requirements and the appropriate EU
guidelines.
~ This appliance contains the coolant Isobutane (R600a), a natural
gas which is environmentally friendly. Although it is flammable, it
does not damage the ozone layer and does not increase the
greenhouse effect. The use of this coolant has, however, led to a
slight increase in the noise level of the appliance. In addition to the
noise of the compressor, you might be able to hear the coolant
flowing around the system. This is unavoidable, and does not have
any adverse effect on the performance of the appliance.
Care must be taken during the transportation and installation of the
appliance that no parts of the cooling system are damaged. Leaking
refrigerant can damage the eyes.
In the event of any damage:
– avoid any flames or anything which creates a spark,
– disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply,
– ventilate the room where the appliance is located for several
minutes, and
– call the Service Department.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The more coolant there is in an appliance, the larger the room it
should be installed in. In the event of a leakage, if the appliance is in
a small room, there is the danger of combustible gases building up.
For every 8 g of coolant at least 1 m3 of room space is required. The
amount of coolant in the appliance is stated on the data plate inside
the appliance.
~ To avoid the risk of damage to the appliance, make sure that the
connection data (fuse rating, frequency and voltage) on the data
plate corresponds to the household supply.
Check that this is the case before connecting the appliance. Consult
a qualified electrician if in any doubt.
~ The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when it is correctly earthed. It is essential that this standard safety
requirement is met. If in any doubt, please have the electrical
installation tested by a qualified electrician.
~ If the electrical connection cable is faulty it must only be replaced
by a Miele approved service technician to protect the user from
danger.
~ Do not connect the appliance to the mains electrical supply by a
multi-socket adapter or extension lead. These are a fire hazard and
do not guarantee the required safety of the appliance.
~ Do not use in a damp environment (e.g. garage or utility room).
Moisture could reach live components or the electrical connection
and cause a short circuit.
~ This appliance must not be used in a non-stationary location (e.g.
on a ship).
13
Warning and Safety instructions
~ A damaged appliance can be dangerous. Check the appliance
for visible signs of damage. Do not use a damaged appliance.
~ For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used when it has
been built in.
~ The appliance must be disconnected from the mains electricity
supply during installation, maintenance and repair work. Ensure that
power is not supplied to the appliance until after it has been
installed or until after any maintenance or repair work has been
carried out.
~ Unauthorised installation, maintenance and repairs can cause
considerable danger to users. Installation, maintenance and repair
work must only be carried out by a Miele authorised technician.
~ While the appliance is under guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a Miele authorised service technician. Otherwise the
guarantee is invalidated.
~ Miele can only guarantee the safety of the appliance when
original Miele replacement parts are used. Faulty components must
only be replaced by genuine Miele original spare parts.
14
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ The appliance is designed for use within certain climate ranges
(ambient temperatures), and should not be used outside this range.
The climate range of the appliance is stated on the data plate inside
the appliance. Installing it in a room with too low an ambient
temperature will lead to the appliance switching off for longer
periods so that it cannot maintain the required temperature.
~ Do not cover or block the air vents as this could impair the
efficiency of the appliance, increase the electricity consumption and
could cause damage to the appliance.
~ If storing food which contains a lot of fat or oil in the appliance or
the door, make sure that it does not come into contact with plastic
components as this could cause stress cracks or break the plastic.
~ Do not store explosive materials in the appliance or any products
containing propellants (e.g. spray cans). Electrical components
could cause flammable vapours to ignite. Danger of fire and
explosion.
~ Do not operate any electrical equipment (e.g. an electric
ice-cream maker) inside the appliance. Danger of sparking
and explosion.
15
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Observe the manufacturer's "use-by" dates and storage
instructions given on food to avoid the risk of food poisoning.
Storage times will depend on several factors, including the
freshness and quality of the food as well as the temperature at which
it is stored.
~ Only use genuine original Miele accessories with this appliance.
Using spare parts or accessories from other manufacturers will
invalidate the guarantee, and Miele cannot accept liability.
Cleaning and care
~ Do not use any oils or grease on the door seal, as these will
cause the seal to deteriorate and become porous with time.
~ Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance.
Steam could reach electrical components and cause a short circuit.
~ Do not use sharp edged objects to
– remove frost and ice,
– lift frozen food and remove ice trays.
They will damage the evaporator, causing irreversible damage to
the appliance.
~ Never place electric heaters or candles in the appliance to
defrost it. These can damage the plastic parts.
~ Do not use defrosting sprays or de-icers, as they might contain
substances which could damage the plastic parts or which could
cause a build-up of gases and pose a danger to health.
16
Warning and Safety instructions
Transporting the appliance
~ Always transport the appliance in an upright position and in its
original transport packaging to prevent damage in transit.
~ Danger of injury and damage. The appliance is heavy and must
be transported by two people.
Disposal of your old appliance
~ Before disposing of an old appliance, first make the door latch or
lock unusable.
This way you will prevent children from accidentally locking
themselves in and endangering their lives.
~ Be careful not to damage any part of the pipework whilst awaiting
disposal, e.g. by
– puncturing the refrigerant channels in the evaporator,
– bending any pipework,
– scratching the surface coating.
Leaking refrigerant can damage the eyes.

21
Switching on and off
Switching off for longer
periods of time
If the appliance is not going to be used
for a longer period of time, e.g. whilst
on holiday:
^ switch the appliance off,
^ disconnect it from the mains,
^ clean the appliance out and
^ leave the door ajar to air the
appliance.
If, during a long absence, the
appliance is switched off but not
cleaned out and the door is left shut,
there is a danger of mould and
odours building up inside the
appliance.
22
The correct temperature
It is very important to set the correct
temperature for storing food in the
appliance. Micro-organisms will cause
food which is not stored at the correct
temperature to deteriorate rapidly.
Temperature influences the growth rate
of these micro-organisms. Reducing
the temperature reduces their growth
rate.
Dynamic cooling
The temperature in the appliance will
rise:
Temperature display
– the more often the door is opened
and the longer it is kept open,
– the more food that is stored in it,
– the warmer the food is which is being
put into it,
– the higher the ambient temperature
surrounding the appliance.
The appliance is designed for use in
specific ambient temperatures
(climate ranges). Do not use in
ambient temperatures for which it is
not designed.
The dynamic cooling fan switches on
automatically when the cooling system
for the refrigerator switches on. It
distributes the temperature in the
appliance to all areas more evenly so
that all the food will be chilled to about
the same degree.
In normal operation the temperature
display shows the average, current
temperature in the refrigerator
section.
Depending on the ambient temperature
and the setting, it can take the
appliance a few hours to reach the
temperature required and for this
temperature to then be shown as a
constant temperature in the display.
. . . in the refrigerator and the
PerfectFresh zone
We recommend a temperature of 4°C in
the refrigerator.
The temperature in the PerfectFresh

Storing food in the refrigerator section
Different storage zones
Due to the natural circulation of the air
in the appliance, there are different
temperature zones in the refrigerator
section. Cold, heavy air sinks to the
lowest section of the appliance. Make
use of the different zones when placing
food in the appliance.
This appliance has automatic
dynamic cooling, which helps to
keep an even temperature when the
fan is running, making the difference
between the various zones less
pronounced.
Warmest area
The warmest area is in the top section
at the front and in the door. Use this for
storing butter and cheese.
– soft cheese and other dairy
products,
– pre-packed vegetables and other
fresh food with a label stating it
should be kept at a temperature of
approx. 4°C .
Do not store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products
containing propellants (e.g. spray
cans). Danger of explosion.
If storing food which contains a lot of
fat or oil in the refrigerator or the
refrigerator door, make sure that it
does not come into contact with
plastic components as this could
cause stress cracks or break the
plastic.
Coldest area
Food must not touch the back wall
of the refrigerator, as it may freeze
to the back wall.
The coldest area in the refrigerator is
directly above the PerfectFresh zone
dividing plate and at the back of the
appliance. The temperature in the
PerfectFresh zone compartments is
even colder.
To allow air to circulate efficiently,
do not pack food too closely
together in the refrigerator.
Use these areas in the refrigerator and
the PerfectFresh zone for all delicate
and highly perishable food, e.g.
Do not cover the fan in the rear wall
of the refrigerator, as this is essential
for keeping the appliance cool.
– fish, meat, poultry,
– sausage products, ready meals,
– dishes or baked goods containing
eggs or cream,
– fresh dough, cake mixtures, pizza or
quiche dough,
33
Storing food in the refrigerator section
Food which is not suitable for
storing in the refrigerator
Not all food is suitable for storing in a
refrigerator at temperatures below 5°C
as some food is sensitive to cold. The
appearance, consistency, taste and / or
the vitamin content of certain types of
food can be adversely affected by
being stored in too cold a place.
Food which does not tolerate cold
temperatures includes:
– Pineapples, avocados, bananas,
pomegranates, mangos, melons,
papayas, passion fruit,
citrus fruit (such as lemons, oranges,
mandarins, grapefruit),
– Fruit which is not yet ripe,
– Aubergines/egg plant, cucumber,
potatoes, peppers/capiscum,
tomatoes, courgettes/zucchini,
– Some hard cheeses, e.g. Parmesan.
34
When shopping for food
The freshness of food when first placed
in the appliance is an important factor
in determining how long it stays fresh,
and how long it can be kept in the
refrigerator. Always observe the use-by
date and the recommended storage
temperature. Time out of the
refrigerator, e.g. during transportation,
should be kept to a minimum. For
example, do not allow food to stay in a
hot car for too long.
Tip: Take a cool bag with you when
shopping and on return place food into
the appliance immediately.
Storing food correctly
Food should generally be stored
covered or packaged in the refrigerator
(there are some exceptions to this rule
in the PerfectFresh zone - see below).
This will prevent food smells from
affecting other food, food from drying
out, and also any cross-contamination
of bacteria. This is particularly
important for protein-based food such
as meat or fish.
The growth of bacteria, such as
salmonella, can be avoided by setting
the correct temperature and
maintaining good standards of hygiene.
Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone
The PerfectFresh zone provides ideal
storage conditions for fruit, vegetables,
fish, meat and dairy products. Food
stays fresh considerably longer while
retaining both flavour and vitamins.
The temperature in the PerfectFresh
zone is maintained automatically at
between 0 - 3 °C. 0 - 3 °C, while lower
than the temperature in a standard
refrigerator, is the optimum temperature
range for storing fresh food which is not
sensitive to cold.
The deterioration process is
decelerated in this temperature range
so food can be stored without loss of
freshness for considerably longer than
in a standard refrigerator.
The humidity in the PerfectFresh zone
can also be regulated to suit the food
being stored. Food retains its own
moisture if stored at a higher humidity
and so does not dry out as quickly. This
allows it to stay crisp and fresh for
longer.
The PerfectFresh zone is divided into
two areas:
– The temperature is between 0 - 3 °C
in the top dry compartment and the
humidity is not increased ,.
Use this compartment to store fish,
meat, dairy products and other kinds
of food, providing it is wrapped.
– The temperature is between 0 - 3 °C
in the bottom humidity controlled
compartment (depending on model,
there may be one or more of this type
of compartment). Depending on the
position of the regulator, the humidity
is not increased , or increased ..
Fruit and vegetables can be stored in
this compartment with the humidity
increased.
Remember that the fresher the food
when placed in the appliance, the
longer it will stay fresh.
Take food out of the PrefectFresh
zone approx. 30 - 60 minutes before
using it. The aroma and taste do not
fully develop until the food has
reached room temperature.
35
Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone
Dry compartment ,
Humidity controlled
The dry compartment is ideal for storing compartment ,, .
foods which perish easily, such as
– Fish and seafood;
– Meat, poultry and sausages;
The humidity controlled compartment
has a regulator which is used to adjust
the relative humidity.
– Salads and lettuce;
Slide the regulator to the , or . relative
humidity setting.
– Dairy products, e.g. yoghurt, cheese,
cream, quark etc;
Humidity level not increased ,
– You can also use the dry
compartment to store all types of
food, providing it is wrapped.
The main advantage of the dry
compartment is the low temperature
(rather than the humidity). The humidity
in the dry compartment is
approximately the same as in a
standard refrigerator.
Please note that food rich in protein
deteriorates faster than other types of
food.
Shellfish, for example, deteriorates
faster than fish, and fish deteriorates
faster than meat.
Always keep these foods covered or
wrapped.
At the , setting, the humidity controlled
compartment becomes a dry
compartment - the regulator opens the
vents in the compartment so that the
humidity escapes (see "Dry
compartment ,").
Increased humidity .
With regulator at the . setting, the
humidity controlled compartment is
suitable for storing fruit and vegetables.
The regulator closes the vents in the
compartment so that the humidity is
retained.
The humidity greatly depends on the
type and quantity of food being stored,
if stored unwrapped.
The humidity can be too low if there is
only a small amount stored in the
compartment.
Tip: If you are only storing a small
amount of food, wrap it in airtight
packaging.
In some circumstances, condensate
can occur in the humidity controlled
compartment at the increased
humidity setting. Use a cloth to
remove the condensate.
36
Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone
The following tips may help if you find that food you have stored does not
keep well (e.g. food becomes limp or wilts after only being stored for a short
time):
^ Only use the appliance for storing fresh food. The condition of the food when it
is first placed in the appliance is an important factor in determining how long it
stays fresh.
^ Clean the PerfectFresh compartments before placing food in them.
^ Allow very moist food to drain before placing it in the PerfectFresh zone.
^ Do not store food which is sensitive to cold in the PerfectFresh zone
(see "Food which is not suitable for storing in the refrigerator")
^ Select the correct PerfectFresh compartment as well as the correct position for
the humidity controlled compartment regulator (humidity not increased or
humidity increased).
^ Increased humidity . in the humidity controlled compartment is achieved via
the moisture present in the food being stored, i.e. the more food stored in the
compartment, the higher the humidity.
It too much moisture has gathered on the floor of the compartment and the food
has been affected, dry the foor with a cloth and place a rack or similar item in
the compartment so that moisture can then drip down.
If the humidity level becomes too low, wrap the food in airtight packaging.
^ If you think that the temperature in the PerfectFresh zone is too high or too low,
try regulating it by altering the temperature of the refrigerator section slightly by
1 to 2 °C.
The temperature must be increased if ice crystals start to form on the floor of the
PerfectFresh zone as otherwise the cold temperature will damage the food.
37
Adjusting the interior fittings

40
Automatic defrosting
The refrigerator section defrosts
automatically.
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the refrigerator section
whilst the compressor is running. You
do not need to remove this, as it will
defrost and evaporate automatically
with the warmth generated by the
compressor.
The condensate is drained away via a
channel and drain hole into an
evaporation system at the back of the
appliance.
Ensure that the condensate channel
and drain hole are kept clean and
are never blocked so that
condensate can flow away without
hindrance.
41
Cleaning and care
Make sure that water cannot get into
the electronic unit or into the lighting
or the metal discs (contacts) in the
left-hand shelf supports.
Do not let water get into the
condensate channel and drain hole
when cleaning.
Do not use steam cleaning
apparatus to clean the appliance.
Steam could reach electrical
components and cause a short
circuit.
The data plate located inside the
appliance must not be removed. It
contains information which is
required in the event of a service call.
Cleaning agents
To avoid damaging the surface of your
appliance, do not use
– 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,
42
– hard, abrasive sponges and
brushes, e.g. pot scourers,
– melamine eraser blocks,
– sharp metal scrapers.
Treat stainless steel surfaces with
Miele stainless steel conditioning
agent (see "Guide to the appliance Optional accessories).
Unlike stainless steel cleaning
agents, the conditioning agent does
not contain any abrasive substances
and will gently remove soiling. Each
time it is used, it forms a water and
dirt repellent protective coating.
Cleaning and conditioning agents
used inside the appliance must be
food safe.
We recommend using lukewarm water
with a little washing-up liquid for
cleaning the appliance.
See the following pages for important
information regarding cleaning.

Do not use any oils or grease on the
door seal as these will cause the
seal to deteriorate and become
porous over time.
^ The door seal should be cleaned
regularly with clean water and then
wiped dry with a soft cloth.
Ventilation gaps
^ The ventilation gaps should be
cleaned on a regular basis with a
brush or vacuum cleaner. A build-up
of dust will increase the energy
consumption of the appliance.
Cleaning and care
After cleaning

parts for fitting large or divided furniture
doors.
75
Installing the appliance
^ Push the appliance two-thirds of the
way into its niche.
When doing this, make sure that the
mains cable does not get trapped.
Tip to help you push it into position:
Tie a piece of string around the plug to
"increase" the length of the connection
cable.
Then pull the cable by the end of the
string through the housing unit. It will
then be easier to connect once the
appliance is in the unit.
With 16 mm thick unit walls:
^ Fit cover strip a into position.
^ Screw fixing bracket d using hex
screw e to the pre-drilled holes in
the appliance door. Using the
pre-drilled holes in the appliance
door, secure a second pair of fixing
brackets d in the handle area of the
door.
76
^ Clip spacers b and c on the
right-hand side of the hinges.
^ Open the appliance door.
Installing the appliance
^ Screw in adjustable feet l
completely.
^ Remove cover f.
^ Secure part g using screws h
loosely into the top left-hand side of
the appliance. Do not tighten the
screws so that you can adjust the
position of this part.
^ Fit stopper i onto fixing bracket j.
^ Then screw fixing bracket j using
screws k loosely into the bottom of
the appliance. Do not tighten the
screws so that you can adjust the
position of this part.
77
Installing the appliance
Installing the appliance
^ Push the appliance into the niche
until all fixing brackets are in line with
the front edge of the furniture side
wall.
^ Carefully remove the protective foil
from sealing strip m.
^ Fix sealing strip m flush with the front
of the appliance on the door opening
side.
1. Position the sealing strip flush with
the lower edge of the top fixing.
2. Stick it down along its entire
length.
– n With 16 mm thick walls:
The spacers should touch the front
edge at the top and bottom of the
side walls of the housing unit.
– o With 19 mm thick walls:
The front edges of the top and
bottom hinges should be flush with
the front edge of the housing side
walls.
78
Installing the appliance
^ Check the position of the fixing
bracket at the top and bottom front
edge of the furniture side wall again.
This will create a gap all round of 42
mm to the front edges of the housing
unit side walls.
On furniture with door fittings (e.g.
stubs, seals etc.) the dimension of
these must be taken into account when
making sure there is a gap all round of
42 mm.
^ Pull the appliance forwards by the
appropriate dimension.
If the all round gap of 42 mm is not
maintained between the appliance
housing and the front edge of the
housing unit side wall, the door may
not shut properly.
This can cause ice to build up,
condensate to accumulate and lead
to faults in the appliance. These can
all lead to increased energy
consumption.
Securing the appliance in the
niche
The hinges and covers will now
protrude by the dimension of the door
