Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
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.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Disposal of your old appliance
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.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
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 out into the
environment.

medicines, blood plasma, laboratory preparations or other such
materials or products. Incorrect use of the appliance for such
purposes can cause damage and deterioration of the items stored
The appliance is also not suitable for use in areas susceptible to
explosion.
Miele cannot accept responsibility for any damage resulting from
such misuse 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 without
supervision if they have been shown how to use it in a safe way and
recognise and understand the consequences or 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.
10
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
corresponds to the relevant 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
– contact the Service Department for advice.
11
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 before connecting the
appliance to the mains supply. 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 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.
~ 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 electricity supply by a
multi-socket adapter or an extension lead. These do not guarantee
the required safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
~ 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.
12

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.
~ 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 inside the appliance.
Danger of sparking and explosion.
~ If storing alcohol with a high percentage proof, make sure it is

Temperature and air quality
Wine keeps on maturing depending on
the surrounding conditions. The length
of time for which wine can be kept in
good condition will therefore depend
not only on the temperature but also on
the air quality.
Type of wine
Recommended
drinking
temperature
Light, fruity reds:
+14 °C to +16 °C
The wine conditioning unit with its
constant ideal temperature, increased
air humidity and odour free atmosphere
offers the perfect conditions for storing
your wine.
Full-bodied reds:
+18 °C
Rosé wines:
+8 °C to +10 °C
Delicate,
aromatic whites:
+8 °C to +12 °C
It also guarantees a vibration-free
environment so that the maturing
process is not disturbed.
Full-bodied or
sweet whites:
+12 °C to +14 °C
Champagne,
sparkling white
wines:
+6 °C to +10 °C
Temperature
Wine can be stored at a temperature
between 6°C and 18°C. If you are
storing white and red wines together,
select a temperature between 12 and
14 °C. This is suitable for both red and
white wines.
At too high a temperature (over 22°C),
wine matures too quickly, which
prevents the aromas from developing
further. Wine cannot mature fully at too
low a temperature (below 5°C).
Tip: Store the wine 1 or 2 °C cooler
than the recommended drinking
temperature as it warms up a little when
poured into the glass.
Full-bodied reds should be opened for
2 - 3 hours before drinking to allow it to
breathe and develop its aroma.
Fluctuations in temperature put wine
under stress and interrupt the maturing
process. It is therefore very important
to maintain a constant temperature.
23
Temperature and air quality
Safety device in case of low ambient
temperatures
The appliance is equipped with a safety
thermostat to protect your wine against
a sharp drop in temperature. If the
external temperature should drop
below this level, a heater element in the
appliance switches on automatically to
keep the temperature inside as
constant as possible. If the ambient
temperature continues to fall, the
appliance switches itself off
automatically.
Isolator plates for thermal separation
The appliance has two fixed isolator
plates which divide the cabinet into
three different zones. This enables you
to store three different types of wine at
the same time, e.g. red wine, white
wine and Champagne.
The isolation strips on the inside of the
glass door prevent an exchange of heat
between the individual zones.
Setting the temperature
The temperature can be set in all three
zones independently of each other.
^ Touch the sensor for the zone for
which you wish to change the
temperature, so that it is highlighted
yellow.
The current temperature for the
selected zone appears in the display.
^ Set the temperature using the two
sensors underneath the display.
By touching the sensor
– the temperature is reduced (it gets
cooler).
– the temperature will get warmer.
^ Touch the OK sensor to confirm the
selection
or
^ wait approximately 5 seconds after
the last press of the sensor.
24
Temperature and air quality
The temperature being set will flash in
the display.
The following information shows in the
display when the sensors are touched:
– Touching a sensor once:
The last set temperature flashes in
the display.
– Each subsequent touch of a sensor:
adjusts the temperature shown in
1 °C steps.
– Leaving a finger on the sensor:
changes the temperature
continuously. An audible tone
sounds (if switched on) when the
lowest or highest possible
temperature is reached.
Approx. 5 seconds after letting go of
the sensor, the current actual
temperature of the zone is automatically
shown.
Temperature range
In all three zones, it is possible to set
temperatures between 5 and 20°C.
Temperature display
In normal operation the temperature
display shows the actual temperature in
the zone.
If the temperature in one of the zones is
not within the range that the appliance
is able to display, only bars will light up
in the temperature display.
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.
When the temperature is altered, there
is a short delay until the temperature
selected is set.
The temperature display on the
control panel always shows the
actual temperature.
25
Temperature and air quality
Air quality and humidity
A conventional refrigerator with its low
humidity level is not the best place to
store wine. It is very important to store
wine in an atmosphere with a high
humidity level so that the corks remain
moist on the outside. Low humidity
causes corks to dry out from the
outside, and so do not seal the bottles
as tightly. Wine should be stored lying
down to keep the corks moist from the
inside too. Air entering the bottle will
inevitably spoil the wine.
Do not introduce additional moisture
into the air, e.g. by placing a dish of
water in the appliance as this will
lead to condensation on the interior
walls which can cause corrosion
damage.
Dynamic cooling (constant air
humidity) m
Dynamic cooling raises the relative
humidity inside the appliance, Dynamic
cooling also distributes the humidity
and the temperature evenly around the
interior so that you can store all your
wine under the exactly the same
excellent conditions. This will create a
stable climate in the cabinet which
imitates that of a wine cellar.
Switching on Dynamic cooling
If you would like to use the wine storage
unit to store wine long term, we
recommend that you keep the Dynamic
cooling function switched on.
^ Touch the Constant humidity
(Dynamic cooling) sensor. It will light
up yellow.
Even if dynamic cooling has not been
switched on, the fans in the
appliance will come on automatically
when the cooling system switches on
to ensure your wine is kept in the
optimum climate.
The fan automatically switches off
when the door is open.
26
Temperature and air quality
Switching off Dynamic cooling
The appliance uses slightly more
energy and is a little noisier when the
dynamic cooling function is switched
on. You can switch it off now and then if
you wish.
^ Touch the Constant humidity
(Dynamic cooling) sensor so that it is
no longer lit up yellow.
Air filtering with active charcoal
filters
The active charcoal filters achieve
optimum air quality by filtering the
incoming air.
Fresh air from the outside enters the
appliance via the active charcoal filters.
The dynamic cooling system then
distributes the air evenly throughout the
cabinet.
Filtering the incoming air through the
active charcoal filters ensures that all
the air entering the appliance is fresh
and free from dust and smells. This in
turn ensures your wine does not absorb
any unwanted odours.
Replace the active charcoal filters when
the — indicator appears in the display
(see "Active charcoal filter").
27
Temperature and door alarm
Your appliance is fitted with a warning
system which ensures that the
temperature in the three zones cannot
rise or fall unnoticed and impair the
wine.
Switching the alarm off early
If the noise disturbs you, you can
switch the alarm off early if you wish.
Temperature alarm
If the temperature in one of the zones
gets too warm or too cold, the sensor
for the zone concerned and the alarm
symbol ; will flash at the same time in
the control panel. An audible alarm will
also sound.
The alarm will sound and the alarm off
indicator light will come on, for
example,
– when you switch the appliance on,
and for as long as the temperature in
a particular zone differs from the
temperature set.
– if the door has been left open for a
while in order to re-arrange or take
wine bottles out and warm air has
entered the appliance.
– if a large number of wine bottles are
put into the appliance at once.
– in the event of a power cut,
The alarm will stop and the Alarm
symbol ; will go out when the
temperature reaches the correct level
again. The sensor for the zone
concerned will light up again
constantly.
28
^ Touch the sensor for switching off the
temperature alarm.
The alarm will stop.
The relevant zone and the alarm
symbol ; will continue to be lit up until
the temperature is at the correct level.
Safety devices in case of low

31
Storing wine bottles
Vibration and movement have a
negative effect on the maturing process
which can affect the taste of the wine.
Wooden shelves
To avoid disturbing other bottles when
removing a bottle of wine, store bottles
of the same type beside each other on
the same shelf. Do not stack bottles on
top of one another on the wooden
shelves.
Always place the bottles in a horizontal
position so that the corks can be kept
moist on the inside and air is prevented
from getting into the bottles.
The wooden shelves are on telescopic
runners which can be pulled out to
make it easier to store and remove
bottles.
There are two wooden shelves on
runners in the middle and lower zones
(the second and third shelf from the top
in each zone) which can be pulled right
out. The remaining wooden shelves can
be partially pulled out.
Please note that the wooden shelf
with the partial pull-out is shorter than
the shelf with the full pull-out,
therefore these are not
interchangeable.
32
Storing wine bottles
Removing the wooden shelves
Adjusting the wooden shelves
The wooden shelves can be removed if
required.
The slats in the wooden shelves can be
individually adjusted to suit, so that
every bottle is stored in perfect safety
regardless of shape or size.
^ Pull the wooden shelf out until it
stops, then lift it up and off the
runners. Hold onto the frame to do
this.
If you require more room (e.g. to set up
the bottle presenter):
^ Simply lift individual slats to move or
remove them from the wooden
shelves.
^ Cover the upper runners which are
now visible on both sides with the
cover strips supplied with the thicker
side of the cover pointing forwards.
The cover strips are held in place
with magnets.
^ To replace the shelf, click it into
place on the extended runners. The
magnetic strip should be pointing
forwards.
33
Storing wine bottles
Annotating wooden shelves
Bottle presenter
For quick and easy identification of the
wines in storage, you can use the chalk
supplied to annotate the magnetic
strips on the wooden shelves. You can
write directly on the magnetic strips or
remove them from the wooden shelf to
do so:
The bottle presenter can be used to
raise particular bottles so that they can
be viewed when the door is shut.
^ Hold the magnetic strip by the sides
and pull it forwards. The magnetic
strip is held on the wooden shelf by
magnets.
^ Annotate the magnetic strip with the
chalk supplied and replace it on the
front of the wooden shelf.
^ The magnetic strip can be wiped
clean with a damp cloth.
Use clear water only to wipe the
magnetic strips. Do not use a
cleaning agent as this would
damage the coating on the
magnetic strips.
34
To set up the bottle presenter, the shelf
above must be removed:
^ Remove the shelf and cover the side
runners with the cover strips.
^ Place the bottle presenter at the very
front of the wooden shelf required
and lay the wine bottle on the bottle
presenter.
^ If desired, switch on the feature light
(see ""Feature lighting") to illuminate
the selected bottle.

The total of 178 bottles can only be
achieved by using all wooden shelves.
Each wooden shelf has a maximum
load-bearing capacity of 35 kg.
Do not stack bottles on the wooden
shelves.
35
Automatic defrost
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the appliance whilst it
is in use. These are automatically
removed and defrosted by the
appliance.
The condensate is drained away via a
channel and drain hole into an
evaporation system at the back of the
appliance.
36
Cleaning and care
Before cleaning
Make sure that water cannot get into
the electronic unit or into the
lighting.
Do not use steam cleaning
apparatus to clean the appliance.
The steam could reach the 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.
To avoid damaging the surface of
your appliance, do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
^ Switch off the appliance.
^ Disconnect it from the mains.
^ Take any wine bottles out of the
appliance and store it in a cool place.
^ Take out any removable parts for
cleaning.
^ Remove the magnetic strips from the
wooden shelves before cleaning
them (see "Annotating wooden
shelves").
Cleaning the outer casing, the
door, the interior and
accessories
^ Clean the appliance at least once a
month.
Remove soiling immediately to
prevent it from drying on.
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
^ Clean the interior with a solution of
lukewarm water and a little
washing-up liquid.
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
^ The wooden shelves should only be
wiped with a well-wrung-out damp
cloth. They must not be allowed to
get wet.
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven sprays,
– glass cleaner (except for the glass in
the appliance door)
– hard, abrasive sponges and
brushes, e.g. pot scourers,
^ Use clear water only to wipe the
magnetic strips at the front of the
wooden shelves. Do not use a
cleaning agent as this would
damage the coating on the magnetic
strips.
– melamine eraser blocks,
– sharp metal scrapers.
37
Cleaning and care
^ After cleaning, wipe the interior and
accessories with a damp cloth, and
dry with a soft cloth. Leave the door
open to air the appliance for a short
while.
^ Use Miele stainless steel conditioning
agent (see "Optional accessories") to
clean and care for the stainless steel
surfaces on the inside and outside of
the appliance. 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.
^ Make sure you treat the exterior
stainless steel surfaces with Miele
stainless steel conditioning agent
each time you clean them.
This will give them a water and dirt
repellent protective coating and help
prevent re-soiling.
^ Clean the appliance door with a
proprietary glass cleaner.
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.
Door seal
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.
Metal grille at the back of the
appliance
The metal grille at the back of the
appliance (heat exchanger) must be
dusted at least once a year. A build-up
of dust will increase the energy
consumption of the appliance.
When cleaning the grille, make sure
that the pipework and other
components do not get broken or
damaged in any way.
After cleaning
^ Replace all shelves and accessories
in the appliance.
^ Reconnect to the mains and switch
the appliance back on.
^ Place the wine bottles back in the
appliance and close the door.
