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!
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your appliance.
Please do not therefore dispose of it
with your household waste.
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 or contact your dealer for
advice. 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.
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.

Use
Only open the doors when
necessary and for as short a time
as possible.
Frequent opening of the doors 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.
Place frozen food in the
refrigerator to defrost.
Do not over-fill the appliance to
allow air to circulate.
Defrosting
Defrost the freezer compartment
when a layer of ice 0.5 cm thick
has built up.
A layer of ice hinders the cold
from reaching the frozen food, and
causes an increase in energy
consumption.

in.
^ Treat the stainless steel surface with
a suitable stainless steel conditioning
agent (available from
www.miele-shop.com).
Important: Stainless steel
conditioner gives long lasting
protection, and helps to prevent
resoiling.
^ Clean the inside of the appliance and
the accessories with lukewarm water
and a little washing-up liquid, and
then dry with a soft cloth.
Important:
To ensure the correct functioning of

temperature display lights up.
The temperature displays for the wine
conditioning zones show the current
temperatures in the different zones.
If the temperature in the freezer section
is above 0 °C, only bars will light up in
the temperature display for the freezer
section. As soon as the temperature is
below 0 °C, the temperature display for
the freezer section will show the current
temperature in the freezer section.
The "Freezing" symbol and the Alarm off
sensor will flash until the temperature in
the freezer section has cooled down to
the correct temperature for freezing.
The appliance will start to cool, and the
interior lighting will come on when the
door is opened.

appliance is switched off but not
cleaned out and the doors are left
shut, there is a danger of mould and
odours building up inside the
appliance.
18
The correct temperature
. . . in the wine conditioning
zones
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.
Wine can be stored at a temperature
between 5°C and 18°C. The optimum
temperature for white wine is between
8 and 12 °C. It is best to take red wine
out of the wine conditioning zones
about two hours before drinking. Open
the wine to allow it to breathe and to
develop its aroma. After two hours, red
wine will be at the correct temperature
for drinking.
If wine is stored at a temperature above
22°C it will mature too quickly. Wine
should not be stored below 5°C for a
long period of time as it will not mature
fully at this low temperature.
Isolator plate for thermal separation
The appliance has a fixed isolator plate
which divides the top cabinet into two
different temperature zones. You can
use the upper and lower zones for
storing different types of wine, e.g. red
wine and white wine.
The following temperatures are
recommended for the different types of
wine:
Red wine:
+14 °C to +18 °C
Rosé wine:
+10 °C to +12 °C
White wine:
+8 °C to +12 °C
Sparkling white
wines:
+7 °C to +9 °C
Champagne:
+5 °C to +7 °C
Fluctuations in temperature put wine
under stress and interrupt the maturing
process. It is therefore very important to
maintain a constant temperature.
Safety features
A thermostat prevents the temperature
in the wine conditioning zones from
falling below 2°C. If the external
temperature should drop below this
level, a heater element switches on
automatically to keep the temperature
inside as constant as possible.
19
The correct temperature
. . . in the freezer section
To freeze fresh food and to store frozen
food for a long time, a temperature of
-18 °C is required. At this temperature
the growth of micro-organisms is
generally halted. As soon as the
temperature rises above -10 °C, the
micro-organisms become active in the
food again so that it cannot be kept as
long. For this reason, partially defrosted
or defrosted food must not be re-frozen.
Food may be re-frozen once it has
been cooked, as the high temperatures
achieved when cooking destroy most
micro-organisms.
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.
The temperature in the appliance will
rise:
– the more often the door is opened
and the longer it is kept open,
– if too much food is stored in it at once,
– 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.
20
Setting the temperature
^ Select one of the wine conditioning
zones or the freezer section by
touching the sensor until the
appropriate symbol lights up yellow.
You can set the temperatures in the
wine conditioning zones independently
of one another.
^ You can now use the arrow sensors
on either side of the temperature
display to set the temperature you
require.
By touching the
X sensor:
Y sensor:
the temperature will get
colder
the temperature will get
warmer.
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
temperature selected flashes.
– Each subsequent touch of a sensor:
adjusts the temperature shown in
1 °C steps.
The correct temperature
– Leaving a finger on the sensor:
changes the temperature
continuously.
When the highest or lowest
temperature in the range is reached,
the X or Y sensor disappears.
Approx. 5 seconds after taking your
finger off a sensor, the average,
current temperature in the wine
conditioning zones or freezer section is
automatically shown.
If you have adjusted the temperature,
wait for approx. 6 hours if the
appliance is not very full and for
approx. 24 hours if the appliance is
full before checking the temperature
display, as it will take this long for the
display to give an accurate reading. If,
after this time, the temperature is still
too high or too low, you will need to
adjust it again.
Temperature display
During normal operation the
temperature display on the control
panel shows the temperature in the
middle of the wine conditioning zones
or the temperature in the warmest part
of the freezer section.
Changing the temperature display
brightness
The temperature display brightness can
be adjusted to suit the lighting
conditions of the room.
^ Touch and leave your finger on the X
sensor.
Temperature range
The temperature can be adjusted:
– In the wine conditioning zones from
5 °C to 20 °C
– In the freezer section from
-14 °C to -28 °C
The ambient temperature in the room
and the installation location can affect
the time it takes for the appliance to
reach the lowest temperature. If the
ambient temperature is too high, the
appliance may not reach the lowest
temperature.
^ At the same time, briefly touch the
On/Off sensor (without letting go of
the X sensor).
^ Leave your finger on the X sensor for
another 5 seconds until c appears in
the display.
^ Touch the X sensor repeatedly until d
appears in the display.
^ Touch the On/Off sensor.
^ The temperature display brightness
can now be changed by touching the
X sensor:
d 0: Maximum brightness
d 1: Reduced brightness
d –: Return to menu.
21
The correct temperature
The old setting lights up, and your
newly selected setting flashes.
^ Touch the On/Off sensor to confirm a
new setting.
^ Touch the X sensor repeatedly until c
appears in the display.
^ Touch the On/Off sensor.
You have now left the settings mode.
22
Alarm
Your appliance has been fitted with a
warning system to protect your stored
wine and frozen food from an
unsuitable temperature and also to
avoid energy being wasted if a door is
left open.
Switching the temperature
alarm off early
If the noise disturbs you, you can
switch the alarm off early if you wish.
Activating the alarm system
The alarm system is always active. It
does not have to be switched on
manually.
Temperature alarm
An alarm will sound if the temperature
in the freezer section becomes warm.
An alarm will sound if the temperature
in one of the wine conditioning zones
becomes too warm or too cold.
The alarm off sensor will flash red and
the symbol for the section or zone
affected will flash.
^ Touch the alarm off sensor.
The alarm will stop.
The alarm off sensor and the relevant
symbol will continue to flash until the
correct temperature has been
reached.
However, if the temperature in the
freezer section remains above
-18 °C for a long time, check that the
frozen food has not started to
defrost. If it has, check that the food
is safe to use and if it is, then use it
as soon as possible.
The alarm will sound, the alarm off
sensor will flash red and the relevant
symbol will flash, for example,
– when freezing large amounts of food
at once.
– if the doors have been left open for a
while, e.g. in order to load, to
re-arrange or to take out frozen food
or wine bottles.
– in the event of a power cut.
The alarm will stop and the indicators
will go out as soon as the temperature
has reached the correct level again.
23
Alarm
Door alarm
The alarm will sound if a door is left
open for more than 2 minutes.
The alarm off sensor will light up red
and the symbol for the section or zones
with the opened door will flash.
The alarm will stop and the indicators
will go out as soon as the door is
closed.
Switching the door alarm off
early
If the noise of the door alarm disturbs
you, you can switch it off early if you
wish.
^ Touch the alarm off sensor.
The alarm will stop.
The alarm off sensor will light up
constantly and the symbol for the
section or zones with the opened
door will continue to flash until the
door has been closed.
24
Using Dynamic cooling
Humidity in the wine
conditioning zones
Constant humidity (Dynamic cooling)
sensor m
It is very important to store wine in an
atmosphere with a high humidity level
(60 - 70%) so that the corks remain
moist on the outside. A refrigerator with
its low humidity level is therefore not the
best place to store wine. Low humidity
causes corks to dry out from the
outside, and so they 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.
Dynamic cooling raises the relative
humidity inside the wine conditioning
zones which prevents corks from drying
out. 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.
Useful tip: Before serving, stand the
wine upright for at least two hours, or
the entire day if possible, to allow any
sediment to settle at the bottom of the
bottle.
Switching on Dynamic cooling
If you would like to use the wine
conditioning zones to store wine long
term, we recommend that you keep the
dynamic cooling function switched on.
This will create a stable climate in the
cabinet which imitates that of a wine
cellar.
^ Select the wine conditioning zone
you want to use dynamic cooling in.
The corresponding "Wine conditioning"
symbol will light up yellow.
^ Touch the Constant humidity
(Dynamic cooling) sensor. It will light
up yellow.
25
Using Dynamic cooling
To save energy, the fan for Dynamic
cooling switches off whilst the door
is open.
Switching off Dynamic cooling
^ Select the relevant wine conditioning
zone.
The corresponding "Wine conditioning"
symbol will light up yellow.
^ Touch the Constant humidity
(Dynamic cooling) sensor. It will dim
to a pale yellow colour.
Even if dynamic cooling has not
been switched on, the two fans in
the appliance will come on
automatically when the cooling
system switches on to ensure your
wine is kept in the optimum climate.
26
Using Super freeze
Switch the Super freeze function on
before putting fresh food into the
freezer section.
This helps food to freeze quickly and
retain its nutrients, vitamins, flavours
and appearance.
Super freeze is not necessary:
– when placing food in the freezer that
is already frozen.
– when freezing up to 2 kg fresh food
daily.
Switching off Super freeze
Depending on the amount of food
placed in the freezer section, the Super
freeze function will switch off
automatically after approx. 30 to 65
hours. The appliance will then continue
to work at normal power.
To save energy, the Super freeze
function can be switched off once a
constant temperature of -18 °C or
colder has been reached in the freezer
section.
Switching on Super freeze
When freezing small quantities of food
in the freezer, the Super freeze function
should be switched on 6 hours
beforehand. When freezing the
maximum load of food the Super
freeze function should be switched on
24 hours beforehand.
^ Select the freezer section.
The "Freezing" symbol will light up
yellow.
^ Touch the Super freeze sensor. It will
dim to a pale yellow colour.
^ Select the freezer section.
The "Freezing" symbol will light up
yellow.
The appliance will continue running at
normal power.
^ Touch the Super freeze sensor. It will
light up yellow.
The appliance works at full power to
lower the temperature in the freezer
section.
27
Storing wine bottles
Wooden shelves
Descriptive labels
Any vibration or movement of the bottle
can affect the wine by interrupting the
natural respiration process and so
impair the taste.
Use the labels supplied to identify your
wine quickly and easily. Insert the
labels into the shelf edge trim from
above.
As far as possible, store bottles of the
same type of wine beside each other
on the same shelf. Removing a bottle of
one type will then leave the other types
undisturbed and will avoid the need to
move different bottles around.
The upper wooden shelves in each
zone are on runners which can be
pulled out to make it easier to store and
remove bottles.
The wooden shelves can be removed if
required.
^ Pull out the wooden shelf on its
runners until it stops, then lift it up
and out.
^ To replace the shelf, click it into
place on the extended runners.
Additional labels can be purchased
from your Miele Dealer or the Miele
Spare Parts Department.
Maximum capacity
A total of 41 bottles (0.75 litre) can be
stored in the wine conditioning zones.
Air filtering with active
charcoal filters
The active charcoal filters in the wine
conditioning zones 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
with new ones once a year (see
"Cleaning and care"). These are
available from Miele Dealer or the
Miele Spare Parts Department.
28
Freezing and storing food
Maximum freezing capacity
Storing frozen food
To ensure that fresh food placed in the
freezer section freezes through to the
core as quickly as possible, the
maximum freezing capacity must not
be exceeded. The maximum freezing
capacity for freezing within a 24-hour
period is given on the data plate:
"Freezing capacity ....kg/24 hrs".
When buying frozen food to store in
your freezer section, check
The maximum freezing capacity given
on the data plate has been calculated
according to DIN EN ISO 15502 Standard.
Freezing fresh food
Fresh food should be frozen as quickly
as possible. This way the nutritional
value of the food, its vitamin content,
appearance and taste are not impaired.
Food which takes a long time to freeze
will lose more water from its cells, which
then shrink.
During the defrosting process, only
some of this water is reabsorbed by the
cells; the rest collects around the food.
– that the packaging is not damaged,
– the use-by date,
– the temperature at which the frozen
food is being stored in the shop. The
length of time it can be kept is
reduced if it has been stored at a
temperature warmer than -18 °C.
^ Buy frozen food once you have
finished the rest of your shopping,
and wrap it in newspaper or use a
cool bag or cool box to transport it.
^ Store it in the freezer as soon as
possible.
Never re-freeze partially or fully
defrosted food. Consume defrosted
food as soon as possible as it will
lose its nutritional value and spoil if
left for too long. Defrosted food may
only be re-frozen after it has been
cooked.
If food is frozen quickly, the cells have
less time to lose moisture, so they
shrink less. As there is not so much
moisture loss, it is easier for the food to
reabsorb it during the defrosting
process, and very little water collects
around the defrosted food.
29
Freezing and storing food
Home freezing
Only freeze fresh food which is in a
good condition.
Hints on home freezing
– The following types of food are
suitable for freezing:
Fresh meat, poultry, game, fish,
vegetables, herbs, fresh fruit, dairy
products, pastry, leftovers, egg
yolks, egg whites and a range of
pre-cooked meals.
– The following types of food are not
suitable for freezing:
Grapes, lettuce, radishes, sour
cream, mayonnaise, eggs in their
shells, onions, whole raw apples and
pears.
– To retain colour, taste and vitamin C,
vegetables should be blanched after
they have been trimmed and
washed.
To blanch: bring a large saucepan of
water to the boil, immerse the
vegetables in the fast boiling water
for 2-3 minutes, depending on
variety. Remove, and plunge into
ice-cold water to cool quickly. Drain
and pack ready for freezing.
– Lean meat freezes better than fatty
meat, and can be stored for
considerably longer.
– To prevent chops, steaks, cutlets or
rolled meat from freezing together in
solid blocks when packed, separate
with a sheet of plastic freezer film.
– Do not season fresh foods or
blanched vegetables before
freezing. Only season cooked food
30
lightly before freezing, but care
should be taken as the taste of some
spices alters when frozen.
– Do not place hot foods or drinks in
the freezer. This causes already
frozen food to thaw, and increases
the energy consumption
considerably. Allow hot foods and
drinks to cool down before placing
them in the freezer.
Packing
^ Freeze food in portions.
Unsuitable packing material
- wrapping paper
- grease-proof paper
- cellophane
- bin bags
- plastic carrier bags
Suitable packing material
- plastic freezer film
- freezer bags
- aluminium foil
- freezer containers
^ Expel as much air as possible from
bags etc. before sealing them, to
prevent freezer-burn on food.
^ Close the packaging tightly with
- rubber bands
- plastic clips
- string or bag ties
- freezer tape.
Freezer bags may also be sealed
using home heat sealing kits.
^ Make a note of the contents and the
date of freezing on the packaging.
Freezing and storing food
Before placing food in the freezer
section
^ When freezing more than 2 kg of
fresh food, switch on the Super
freeze function for some time before
placing the food in the freezer (see
"Super freeze").
This also helps to prevent food that is
already in the freezer from starting to
defrost.
Placing food in the freezer section
Food to be frozen can be placed
anywhere in the freezer.
Large quantities should be placed
directly on the glass cold plates to
freeze the food quickly. To do this take
out the freezer drawers, leaving the
bottom drawer in the appliance. The
lowest freezer drawer must always
remain in the appliance.
When removing the top drawers, make
sure that you do not block the
ventilation slits in the back wall of the
appliance. They are important for
trouble-free operation of the appliance.
When freezing, make sure that food
already frozen does not come into
contact with fresh food being frozen
as this could cause the frozen food
to begin to defrost.
Freezing large items
If you wish to freeze large items such
as a turkey or game, the glass cold
plates between the drawers can be
removed. To do this:
^ Remove the freezer drawers and
carefully slide out the glass cold
plates.
Freezer calendar
The freezer calendar on the freezer
drawer gives the length of time in
months which various foods can be
stored for effectively.
Where the storage time given on the
packaging differs, follow the advice on
the packaging.
Each drawer and each of the glass
cold plates can be loaded with a
maximum of 25 kg.
^ Place the food flat in the bottom of
the freezer drawers or on the glass
cold plates so that it freezes through
to the core as quickly as possible.
^ Make sure that the packaging and
containers are dry to prevent them
sticking together when frozen.
2-3 months:
Cakes, ice cream, stew
3-5 months:
Fish, mushrooms, bread
6-8 months:
Pork, veal, poultry
10-12 months:
Beef, fruit, vegetables
31
Freezing and storing food
Defrosting
Cooling drinks
Frozen food can be defrosted in
different ways:
When cooling drinks quickly, make sure
bottles are not left in the freezer for
more than one hour, as they could
burst.
– in a microwave oven,
– in an oven using the "Fan" or
"Defrost" setting,
– at room temperature,
– in the refrigerator (the cold given off
by the frozen food helps to keep the
other food cold),
– in a steam oven.
Poultry It is particularly important to
observe food hygiene rules when
defrosting poultry. Do not use the liquid
from defrosted poultry. Pour it away
and wash the container it was in, the
sink and your hands. Danger of
salmonella poisoning.
Fruit should be defrosted at room
temperature in its packaging, or in a
covered bowl.
Most vegetables can be cooked while
still frozen. Just put straight into boiling
water or hot fat. The cooking time is
slightly less than that of fresh
vegetables due to changes in the cell
structure.
Never re-freeze partially or fully
defrosted food. Consume defrosted
food as soon as possible as it will
lose its nutritional value and spoil if
left for too long. Defrosted food may
only be re-frozen after it has been
cooked.
32
Freezer tray
The freezer tray is useful for freezing
small items such as berries, herbs and
vegetables. They can be frozen
individually and therefore maintain their
shape when defrosted.
^ Space the food out loosely on the
tray.
^ Hang the tray in one of the upper
freezer drawers.
Leave the food for 10-12 hours to
freeze thoroughly on the tray. Transfer it
to a freezer bag or suitable container
once frozen. Place the bag or container
in the freezer drawer.
Freezing and storing food
Cool pack
The cool pack prevents the
temperature in the freezer rising too
quickly in the event of a power cut.
Place the cool pack in the top drawer of
the freezer section, directly on top of
the food. The cool pack will be at its
most effective after it has been in the
freezer for approx. 24 hours.
If there is a power cut, place the cool
pack directly on top of the frozen food
in the top drawer so that the food will
be kept cold for as long as possible.
When placing fresh food in the freezer,
use the cool pack to separate the fresh
food from the food which is already
frozen so that the frozen food does not
begin to thaw.
The cool pack can also be used in a
cool bag to keep food or drinks cool for
a short period of time.
33
Making ice cubes
For the automatic ice cube maker to
operate it must be connected to the
mains water supply.
Switching on the ice cube
maker
^ Switch on the freezer section.
^ Open the top left drawer a little.
To ensure that the water pipes are
thoroughly flushed through before
use, ice cubes from the first three
ice cube making processes must
not be consumed.
This applies not only to when the
appliance is installed for the first
time but also if the appliance has
been out of use for a longer period
(e.g. whilst on holiday).
Making a large amount of ice cubes
^ Press the On/Off button on the ice
cube maker. The indicator light will
come on.
^ Close the drawer.
The drawer must be completely shut
for ice cubes to be produced.
After the appliance is switched on for
the first time it can take up to 24 hours
for the first ice cubes to drop out of the
ice cube maker and collect in the
drawer.
Thereafter, when the ice cube maker is
switched off and then on again it will
take up to a maximum of 6 hours for ice
cubes to be produced.
34
The amount of ice cubes which the
appliance makes depends on the
temperature in the freezer section. The
lower the temperature, the more ice
cubes are produced within a certain
time frame.
Ice cube production is halted
automatically as soon as the ice cube
drawer is full.
If you require a large amount of ice
cubes,
^ replace the full ice cube drawer with
the drawer beside it on the right.
The ice cube maker will begin to
produce ice cubes again as soon as
this new drawer has been placed in
position and closed properly.
Making ice cubes
Switching off the ice cube
maker
Setting the water intake time
for the ice cube maker
The ice cube maker can be switched
off independently of the freezer section
if you do not want the appliance to
make any ice cubes.
The size of the ice cubes produced
depends on the water pressure present
and the water intake time which has
been set for the ice cube maker.
If the ice cube maker is only producing
small ice cubes the water pressure is
low. In order to produce larger ice
cubes, the water intake time for the ice
cube maker needs to be prolonged.
^ Switch the ice cube maker on.
^ Press the On/Off button on the ice
cube maker until the indicator light
goes out.
If the ice cube maker is switched off,
the ice cube drawer can be used as an

Automatic defrost
Wine conditioning zones
Freezer section
The wine conditioning zones defrost
automatically.
This appliance is equipped with a "Frost
free" system. The freezer section
defrosts automatically.
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the wine conditioning
zones whilst they are in use. These are
automatically removed and defrosted
by 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.
The moisture generated in the
appliance collects on the condenser
and is automatically defrosted and
dissipated by the condenser from time
to time.
This automatic defrosting system
enables the freezer section to remain
permanently ice-free, however, the food
stored in the freezer section will not
defrost.
37
Cleaning and care
^ A range of Miele branded cleaning
agents is available from the Miele
Spare Parts Department, or via the
internet at www.miele-shop.com.

Problem solving guide
Repairs to electrical appliances
should only be carried out by a
suitably qualified and competent
person in strict accordance with
current local and national safety
regulations. Repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work.
What to do if . . .
. . . the temperature in the wine
conditioning zones or freezer section
is too low.
^ Select a warmer temperature.
^ Check that the doors have been
closed properly.
^ Has a large amount of fresh food
been put in at the same time for
freezing.
This makes the compressor run for
longer, causing the temperature to
fall automatically.
. . . the wine conditioning zones or
the freezer section do not get cool.
^ Super freeze has not switched itself
off.
^ Check whether the relevant zone or
section is switched on. The
temperature display must be lit up.
. . . the compressor is switching in
too frequently and for too long.
^ Check that the plug is correctly
inserted into the socket and switched
on.
^ Check that the fuse is not defective
and that the mains fuse has not
tripped. If it has, contact the Miele
Service Department.
. . . the door to the freezer section
will not open because it has been
opened and closed too many times in
succession.
This is not a fault. The suction caused
by opening and closing the door is
preventing the door from opening. Wait
a few minutes and then try again. It
should now open without force.
44
^ Check whether the ventilation gaps
have been covered over or become
dusty.
^ Check whether the metal grille (heat
exchanger) at the back of the
appliance has become too dusty.
^ The doors have been opened too
frequently, or a large amount of fresh
food has been put in at once for
freezing.
^ Check that the doors have been
closed properly.
. . . food has frozen together.
Use a blunt instrument, e.g. a spoon
handle or plastic scraper, to prise it
apart carefully.
Problem solving guide
. . . the frozen food is thawing
because the freezer section is too
warm.
^ Is the room temperature lower than
the ambient temperature for which
the appliance is designed?
If so, raise the temperature of the
room.
Operating in a room which is too cold
will cause the cooling system to switch
off for too long, causing the freezer
section to become too warm.
. . . the alarm sounds and the alarm
off sensor is flashing.
The wine conditioning zones are too
warm or too cold in relation to the set
temperature or the freezer section is too
warm in relation to the set temperature
because
^ the doors have been opened too
frequently, large amounts of fresh
food have been put in at once for
freezing or many bottles of wine have
been placed in the appliance.
^ the ventilation gaps are blocked.
Once the problem has been resolved
and the correct temperature has been
reached, the alarm indicator will go out
and the alarm will stop.
. . . bars light up in the temperature
displays.
Check the temperature displays about
6 hours after switching on the

temperature until the temperature in the
appliance has reached a certain level.
. . . "_F" appears in the temperature
display.
There is a fault. Call the Service
Department.
. . . the Change the active charcoal
filter indicator is red.
^ Replace the active charcoal filters.
You can order replacement filters via
your Miele dealer or the Miele Spare
Parts Department.
. . . "nA" appears in the temperature
display.
The temperature has risen too high at
some point during the last couple of
days because of a power cut.
^ Touch the alarm off sensor whilst "nA"
is lit up in the display.
The temperature display will show the
warmest temperature recorded in the
freezer section during the power cut.
Depending on the temperature
displayed, you should check the
condition of food in the freezer. If food
has defrosted or started to defrost,
check that it is still safe to use, and if
so, use it as quickly as possible.
Defrosted food may only be re-frozen
after it has been cooked.
The warmest temperature will show in
the display for about 1 minute. The
current temperature in the freezer will
then show in the display again.

^ Call the Service Department.
^ Check that the ice cube drawer has
been closed properly.
It can take up to 24 hours to produce
the first ice cubes.
. . . the ice cube maker is only
producing small ice cubes.
The size of ice cubes which are
produced over a certain period of time
will depend on the water pressure
present.
If the ice cube maker is only producing
small cubes of ice this means that the
water pressure is low.
46
The LED lighting may only be repaired
or changed by a service technician.
Danger of injury and damage.
Should the cover be damaged or
need to be removed due to damage,
exercise caution. Never look at the

the top bracket upwards until it is in
the correct position (z).
^ Position the long stainless steel trim
l in the gap, making sure that it is
located above bracket e.
^ Secure the brackets at the sides
using hex screws k supplied. Do
not drill holes for these screws in the
appliance.
Pressing both ridges along the trim
together as you do so makes it
easier to fit the trim into the gap.
To avoid vibrations, neither the
brackets nor the screws should
touch the pipework on the backs of
the appliances.
^ Carefully work the stainless steel trim
into the gap. Use a soft cloth to do
this to avoid denting the trim.
^ Carefully remove the protective foil
from the stainless steel trim.
^ Connect both appliances to the
electricity supply as described under
"Electrical connection".
^ Carefully push the two appliances
back into their final position. It is
easier if you raise the appliances at
the front, and roll them back on their
rear rollers.
The height of the appliances can be
aligned again if necessary.

Changing the door hinging
Refitting the handle:
Please make sure you follow the
instructions below carefully when
you refit the handle. The door seal
will be damaged if the handle is
fitted incorrectly.
It is important to check that the side
section of the handle d does not
come into contact with the door seal
when opening the door, as this
would damage the door seal
permanently.
If, after you have refitted the handle,
you find that the side section does
touch the door seal when the door is
opened:
^ Realign mounting plate c with grub
screws a until the mounting plate
and the side section of the handle d
are at the correct angle and the side
section does not touch the door seal
when the door is opened.
^ Loosely attach the handle to the
opposite side of the door with the two
front screws b.
Mounting plate c must be positioned
on the side of the door so that when the
door is closed it is flush with the side of
the appliance.
If this is not the case,
^ tighten both grub screws a with a
suitable allen key until mounting plate
c lines up correctly.
^ Then tighten all 4 fixing screws b.
^ Slide the side section of the handle
d into the guides on the mounting
plate until it clicks into place.

Aligning the appliance doors
The appliance doors can be aligned
with the housing after they have been
fitted.
Align the upper door using the long
outer slots in the middle hinge plate:
In the following illustration the door
is shown open to make it easier to
see what you have to do.
Align the lower door using the long
outer slots in the lower hinge plate:
^ Slightly loosen both screws c.
^ Align the door by sliding the hinge
plate to the left or right.
^ Then tighten screws c.
^ Remove centre screw a from the
hinge plate.
^ Slightly loosen both outer screws b.
^ Align the door by sliding the hinge
plate to the left or right.
^ Then tighten screws b again. Screw
a does not need to be refitted.
72
Building in the appliance
The air inlet and outlet must not be
covered or blocked in any way.
They should be dusted on a regular
basis.
When built into a kitchen run (max.
depth 580 mm) the appliance can be
installed directly next to a kitchen
furniture housing unit. The appliance
door will protrude in front of furniture
fronts at the sides by 34 mm and by
55 mm in the middle of the door. This
enables the doors to be opened and
shut without being obstructed.
When installed next to a wall d a
distance of approx. 55 mm must be
maintained on the hinge side between
the wall d and the appliance b, so
that the doors and the handles have
sufficient space for opening.
a Top box
b Appliance
c Housing unit
d Wall
The appliance can be installed in a
kitchen run. To match the height of the
rest of the kitchen, the appliance can
be fitted with a suitable top box a.
A ventilation gap of at least 50 mm
depth must be allowed for behind the
appliance across the entire width of the
top box for air to circulate.
The cross section of the air outlet under
the room ceiling must be at least
300 cm2 to ensure that air can circulate
without hindrance. Otherwise the
appliance has to work harder, resulting
in an increase in electricity
consumption.
