Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and can normally be
recycled.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation!
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure that they
are recycled.
Disposal of your old appliance
Please ensure that the appliance
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 the
appliance to prevent misuse. See the
"Warning and Safety" section of this
booklet for further details.
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your appliance.
Please dispose of your old appliance at
your local community waste collection /
recycling centre and not with your
household waste.
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.

Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
This appliance complies with all
relevant legal safety requirements.
Improper use can, however, present
a risk of both personal injury and
material damage.
To avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the appliance, read the
operating instructions carefully
before installation and before using
for the first time. They contain
important notes on the installation,
safety, operation and care of the
appliance.
Keep these operating instructions in
a safe place and pass them on to
any future user.
Correct use
This appliance is intended for
domestic use only for the cool
storage of food and drink.
Any other usage is not supported by
the manufacturer and could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot
be held liable for damage caused by
incorrect or improper use of the
appliance.
This appliance is not a toy! To avoid
the risk of injury, do not allow
children to play on or near it, or to
play with the controls. Supervise its
use by the elderly or infirm.
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, but does
not have any adverse effect on the
performance of the appliance. Care
must be taken during transportation
and setting up of the appliance that no
parts of the cooling system are
damaged. Leaking coolant can
damage the eyes.
In the event of any damage:
- avoid open fires and anything which
creates a spark,
- disconnect from the mains,
- air the room in which the appliance is
located for several minutes and
- contact the Service Department for
advice.
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.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply make sure that
the rating on the data plate
corresponds to the voltage and
frequency of the household supply.
This data must correspond in order to
avoid the risk of damage to the
appliance. Consult a qualified
electrician if in any doubt.
The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the appliance and an effective earthing
system which complies with local and
national safety regulations. It is most
important that this basic safety
requirement is present and regularly
tested, and where there is any doubt,
the household wiring system should be
inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
Safe operation of the appliance is
only assured if it has been installed
and connected in accordance with
these operating and installation
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.
Installation work, maintenance and
repairs may only be carried out by
suitably qualified and competent
persons in accordance with national
and local safety regulations.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous and the
8
manufacturer will not be held liable.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
appliance until after maintenance or
repair work has been carried out.
The appliance is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
when:
– it has been switched off at the wall
socket and the plug has been
withdrawn.
– the mains fuse is withdrawn, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g.
danger of overheating).
Use
Do not store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products
containing propellants (e.g. spray
cans). Thermostats switching on may
produce sparks which could present a
fire hazard. Flammable compounds
could explode.
Do not use any electrical
equipment in this appliance, e.g.
ice cream makers. Danger of sparking
and explosion!
If storing alcohol with a high
percentage proof, make sure it is
tightly closed and stored upright.
Danger of explosion.
Warning and Safety instructions
Observe the "use by" dates 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. Follow
the instructions given on food
manufacturer's packaging on storage
conditions required, as well as the "use
by" date.
Do not use sharp edged objects to
– remove frost and ice,
– separate food which has become
frozen.
They will damage the evaporator,
causing irreversible damage to the
appliance.
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.
The appliance is designed for use
within certain climate ranges
(ambient temperatures), and should not
be used outside this range. The climate
range for your appliance is stated on
the data plate inside the appliance.
Installing it in a room with too low an
ambient temperature, e.g. a garage,
will lead to the appliance switching off
for longer periods so that it cannot
maintain the required temperature.
Do not use a steam-cleaning
appliance to clean this appliance.
Pressurised steam could reach the
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation
by cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
appliance and its surroundings in a
clean condition at all times. Any
damage which may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the guarantee.
Do not use any oils or grease on
the door seals, as these will cause
the seals to deteriorate and become
porous with time.
Do not store cooking oil in the
refrigerator door. Traces of oil can
cause stress cracks to occur in the
plastic components in the door.
Do not block the ventilation gaps in
the appliance as this would impair
the efficiency of the appliance, increase
the electricity consumption and could
cause damage to the appliance.

On appliances with winter setting,
please make sure that the winter
setting is switched off when the
ambient temperature is warmer
than 16 °C.
Only open the door when
necessary and for as short a time
as possible.
Frequent opening of the door for
long periods will cause a loss of
coldness.
Store food in an organised way.
If food is not stored in an organised
way, searching for an item will
mean the door is open for longer.
Allow hot food and drinks to cool
down before placing them in the
appliance.
Placing hot food in the appliance
will cause the compressor to run for
a long time, as the appliance will
have to work harder to lower the
temperature.
Store food covered or packaged.
The evaporation or condensation of
liquids will cause a loss of coldness
in the refrigerator.
Use
Place frozen food in the refrigerator
to defrost.
Do not over-fill the sections to allow
air to circulate.
Defrosting
Defrost the freezer section when a
layer of ice one centimetre thick
has built up.
A layer of ice hinders the cold from
reaching the frozen food, and
causes an increase in energy
consumption.
11
Switching on and off
Before using for the first time
The stainless steel surface has a layer
of protective foil to prevent scratching
during transportation.
^ Do not remove this foil until the
appliance has been installed or built

Using the refrigerator efficiently
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.
Warmest area
The warmest area is in the top section
of the door. Use this for storing butter
and cheese.
Do not store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products
containing propellants (e.g. spray
cans). Danger of explosion.
If storing alcohol with a high
percentage proof, make sure it is
tightly closed, and store upright.
Do not store cooking oil in the
refrigerator door.
Traces of oil can cause stress
cracks to occur in the plastic
components in the door.
Coldest area
The coldest area in a refrigerator is
normally directly above the vegetable
containers. In this appliance, however,
the coldest area is in the StayFresh
zone.
Food must not touch the back wall of
the appliance, as it may freeze to the
back wall.
StayFresh zone
– dishes or baked goods containing
eggs or cream,
A temperature of between 0 - 3 °C
combined with a high humidity level
provides the optimum storage
conditions for fresh food, enabling it to
be kept fresher for longer than in a
refrigerator.
The freshness of food when first placed
in the appliance is an important factor
in determining how long it stays fresh.
Bear this in mind when shopping.
– fresh dough, cake mixtures, pizza or
quiche dough,
The temperature in the StayFresh zone
is automatically held at approx. 0 °C.
Use the coldest areas in the refrigerator
section and in the StayFresh zone for all
delicate and highly perishable food,
e.g.
– fish, meat, poultry,
– sausage products, ready meals,
– 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.
19
Using the refrigerator efficiently
The StayFresh zone is divided into two
areas:
– The dry compartment has a relative
humidity level of approx. 45 %.
– The humidity controlled
compartment has a control for
setting the humidity level between
45 % and 90 %. Slide the control to
the humidity level you require.
The humidity level will also be affected
by the moisture content of the food
being stored and how often the
compartment is opened.
Low humidity level ,
^ To set a humidity level of approx.
45 %, slide the control for the
humidity controlled compartment
over to the left ,.
This humidity level is suitable for storing
particularly delicate food such as fresh
fish, shell fish, meat, poultry, sausage,
dairy products and salads.
High humidity level ^ To set a humidity level of approx.
90 %, slide the control for the
humidity controlled compartment
over to the right -.
This humidity level is suitable for storing
fresh produce such as vegetables,
salad, herbs, and seasonal fruit.
Store these types of food uncovered
in the compartment.
Food which should not be
stored in a refrigerator
Not all food is suitable for storing in the
refrigerator. These include:
– Fruit and vegetables which are
sensitive to cold, such as bananas,
avocado pears, papaya, passion
fruit, aubergines, peppers, tomatoes
and cucumbers
– Fruit which is not yet ripe
– Potatoes
Keep food covered or packaged in
this compartment with the exception
of meat.
20
– Some hard cheeses, e.g. Parmesan
Using the refrigerator efficiently
Storing food correctly
Store food covered or packaged. This
will prevent food smells or tastes from
affecting other foods, and prevent food
from drying out and also any
cross-contamination of bacteria. The
growth of bacteria, such as salmonella,
can be avoided by setting the correct
temperature and maintaining good
standards of hygiene.
Fruit and vegetables
Fruit and vegetables can be stored
loose in the vegetable containers.
However, you should bear in mind that
some types of vegetables give off a
natural gas which speeds up the rate at
which food perishes. Some fruit and
vegetables react strongly to this gas
and should not be stored together.
Examples of fruit which produce a
large amount of this natural gas are:
Apples, apricots, pears, nectarines,
peaches, plums, avocado pears and
figs.
Examples of fruit and vegetables
which react strongly to the natural
gases given off by other types of fruit
and vegetables are:
Kiwis, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels
sprouts, mangos, honeydew melons,
apples, apricots, cucumbers, tomatoes,
pears, nectarines and peaches.
Different types of unpacked meats
and vegetables must be kept
separate.
To avoid any microbiological
cross-contamination, these foods may
only be stored together if they are
wrapped.
Protein rich foods
Please note that foods rich in protein
deteriorate faster than others.
Shell fish for example deteriorates
faster than fish, and fish deteriorates
faster than meat.
Meat
Store meat in suitable containers, but
uncovered in the low humidity
compartment. (Undo wrappings and
leave containers open). The surface of
the meat will dry out slightly and protect
it from bacterial growth thus increasing
its storage qualities. To prevent the risk
of bacterial contamination keep meat
stored in suitable containers and do not
let different types of meat come into
direct contact with each other.
Take food out of the StayFresh zone
approx. 30 - 60 minutes before using
it. The aroma and taste do not fully
develop until the food has reached
room temperature.
21
Adjusting the interior fittings
Moving the shelves
Adjusting the door shelves
The shelves can be adjusted according
to the height of the food.
^ Push the door shelf upwards, then
remove it by pulling it forwards.
^ Pull the shelf forward as far as it will
go; then lift it upwards to remove it.
^ Replace the door shelf at the
required position. Ensure that it is
securely pushed back into position.
^ With the rear barrier facing upwards,
place the shelf at the required
position.
The rear barrier must face upwards to
prevent food from touching the back
of the appliance and freezing to it.
Moving the bottle divider
The bottle divider can be moved to the
left or right to ensure that bottles are
held securely in position when the door
is opened and shut.
Split shelf
In order to accommodate tall items in
the appliance, one of the shelves is
divided. The front section can be
pushed under the rear section.
^ Pull the front half of the glass shelf
forwards slightly and then push it
carefully under the rear half.
StayFresh zone compartments
^ When loading and unloading items,
pull the compartment right out by
taking hold of it at the back and lifting
it up to remove it.
^ To put it back in, pull the runners a
right out and place the compartment
on top of the runners. The front of
the runners must be right up
against the front of the
compartment b. Push the
compartment back in c.
22
Automatic defrost
Refrigerator section and
StayFresh zone
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the refrigerator section
and the StayFresh zone whilst 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.
Ensure that the condensate channel
and drain hole are kept clean and
are never blocked so that
condensate can flow away without
hindrance.
23
Cleaning and care
Never use cleaning agents
containing abrasive substances
such as sand, soda, acids or
chemical solvents.
"Non-abrasive" cleaning agents are
also unsuitable as they can cause
matt areas to appear.
Stainless steel surfaces should be
cleaned with a proprietary stainless
steel cleaner following the
manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging.
Make sure that no water can
penetrate into the electronic unit or
into the light.
Do not let water get into the
drainage channel and drain hole
when cleaning.
Do not use steam cleaning
apparatus to clean the appliance.
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.
Before cleaning
^ Switch the appliance off, switch off at
the socket and remove the plug.
^ Take any food out of the appliance
and store it in a cool place.
24
^ Take out any removable parts e.g.
shelves for cleaning.
^ The stainless steel trim can be pulled
off the front edge of the refrigerator
section shelves for cleaning.
Cleaning the outer casing, the
interior and accessories
^ Clean the refrigerator section and the
StayFresh zone at least once a
month.
^ Accessories and shelves should all
be hand-washed. The butter dish is,
however, dishwasher safe.
^ Clean the condensate channel and
drain hole frequently, so that
condensate can drain away
unhindered. Use a straw or similar to
clear the drain if necessary.
^ Clean stainless steel surfaces with a
suitable cleaning agent following the
manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging.
^ After cleaning, wipe the interior and

^ 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.
Cleaning and care
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) should be
dusted at least once a year. A build-up
