Technical safety
~ A damaged coffee machine could
be dangerous. Before installing the
machine, check it for any externally
visible damage. Do not use a damaged
machine.
~ Before connecting the machine to
the mains supply, make sure the rating
on the data plate corresponds to the
voltage and frequency of the on-site
supply. Consult a qualified electrician if
in any doubt.
~ The electrical safety of this machine
can only be guaranteed if correctly
earthed. It is most important that this
basic safety requirement is observed
and regularly tested and where there is
any doubt, the household wiring system
should be inspected by a qualified
electrician.
~ Do not connect the machine to the
mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket adapter or an extension
lead. Extension leads do not guarantee
the required safety of the appliance
(e.g. danger of overheating).
~ Disconnect the machine from the
electricity supply immediately you
notice any damage or the smell of
scorching, for example.
~ Ensure that the mains connection
cable cannot become trapped or
damaged by any sharp edges.
~ The mains connection cable should
not hang down. Someone could trip
over it and the machine could be
damaged. Excess cable can be
pushed through the cable exit at the
back of the machine.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The coffee machine must not be
used in a non-stationary location (e.g.
on a ship).
~ Only use the coffee machine in
rooms where the ambient temperature
is between 10 °C and 32 °C.
~ Ensure that there is sufficient
ventilation around the coffee machine.
Do not cover the vent on the top of the
machine.

behind a kitchen furniture door, it may
only be used with the furniture door
open. Do not close the furniture door
while the coffee machine is in use.
~ Protect the coffee machine from
water and water spray.
~ Repairs may only be carried out by
a suitably qualified and competent
person in strict accordance with
national and local safety regulations.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous.
~ While the appliance is under
guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a service technician
authorised by Miele. Otherwise the
guarantee is invalidated.
~ The manufacturer 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.
~ The machine must be disconnected
from the electricity supply during
installation or repair work.
~ Disconnect the coffee machine from
the electricity supply if it is not going to
be used for a while, e.g. during
holidays.
~ Only use genuine original Miele
accessories with this machine. Using
spare parts or accessories from other
manufacturers will invalidate the
guarantee, and Miele cannot accept
liability.
~ In areas which may be subject to
infestation by cockroaches and other
vermin, pay particular attention to
keeping the appliance and surrounding
areas clean at all times. Any damage
caused by cockroaches and other
vermin will not be covered by the
guarantee.
Correct use
,The spouts present a danger of
burning or scalding. The liquids and
steam dispensed are very hot.
~ Please note:
– Keep well away from the area
underneath the spouts when hot
liquids and steam are being
dispensed.
– Do not touch hot components.
– The spouts can spray hot liquid or
steam. Ensure that the
cappuccinatore is clean and
correctly fitted.
– Water in the drip tray can be very
hot. Take care when emptying it.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
,Danger of injury. Do not reach
into the brew unit or grinding
mechanism if the machine is
connected to the electricity supply.
~ Clean the coffeee machine and the
milk flask (depending on model)
thoroughly before using for the first
time. Rinse through the coffee and milk
pipework (see "Cleaning and care").
~ Please note the following regarding
water:
– Only use cold, fresh tap water to fill
the water container. Warm or hot
water or other liquids could damage
the machine.
– Change the water every day to
prevent a build-up of bacteria.
– Do not use mineral water. Mineral
water will cause serious limescale
deposits to build up in your machine
and damage it.
– Do not use water from a reverse
osmosis unit in this machine. This
would damage it.
~ Only fill the bean container with
roasted espresso or coffee beans. Do
not fill the bean container with coffee
beans which have been treated or with
ground coffee.
~ Only add ground coffee or cleaning
tablets to the ground coffee chute. The
cleaning tablets remove grease from
the brew unit.
~ Do not use milk with additives.
Sugar additives would stick to the milk
pipework
12
~ If using animal milk, use only
pasteurised milk.
~ Do not use coffee beans which have
been treated with caramel, sugar or
other substances. Sugar will damage
the machine.
~ Do not place any alcohol mixtures
which are alight underneath the coffee
spouts. The flames could ignite plastic
components and cause them to melt.
~ Do not place any naked flames, e.g.
a candle, on or near the coffee
machine. The coffee machine could
catch fire.
~ Please note the following with
regard to cleaning the coffee machine:
– Disconnect the coffee machine from
the electricity supply before
cleaning.
– Clean the coffee machine and the
milk flask (depending on model)
daily ( for further information see
"Cleaning and Care").
– All parts of the milk system need to
be cleaned thoroughly and regularly
Milk contains bacteria which
proliferate rapidly with inadequate
cleaning. A dirty machine can be
harmful to health.
– Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
the machine. The steam could reach
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Descale the coffee machine
regularly using the appropriate number
of Miele descaling tablets for the water
hardness level in your area. Descale
the machine more frequently in areas
with very hard water. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for damage
arising from insufficient descaling.
~ Degrease the brew unit regularly
with Miele cleaning tablets. Depending
on the natural oil content of the coffee
used, the brew unit can become
blocked quite quickly.
For machines with a stainless steel
front:
~ Do not use sticky notes, transparent
adhesive tape, masking tape or other
types of adhesive on the stainless steel
front. These damage the surface,
causing it to lose its dirt repellent
protective coating.
~ The surface of the stainless steel
front is susceptible to scratching. Even
magnets can cause scratching.
~ Used coffee grounds should be
disposed of with organic rubbish or on
the compost heap, but not emptied
down the sink as they could block it.
~ The machine must not be used for
cleaning objects.

dispensed before the machine needs to
be descaled will depend on the water
hardness level set.
Set the water hardness level on the
coffee machine to the water hardness
level for the local area to ensure that
the machine functions correctly and is
not damaged. This will ensure that the
reminder to descale the machine will
appear in the display at the correct

Filling the water container
The quality of the water plays an
important part in the overall quality of
the coffee.
The water container should therefore be
emptied and filled with fresh tap water
every day.
Warning. Bacteria can cause
infection.
It is important to empty and fill the
container with fresh tap water every
day to avoid the risk of bacteria
building up.
Hot or warm water or other liquids
can damage the coffee machine.

Saving energy
Eco mode
Using the coffee machine in Eco mode
saves energy.
The coffee machine will switch to
energy saving mode if it has not been
used to prepare a drink for some time.
This means that the machine does not
remain heated and so saves energy.
The coffee machine will heat up again
as soon as a drink is selected.
Pre-heating the cups with hot water
If you only want to pre-heat cups
occassionally you can switch the cup
heating surface off.
You can then use hot water from the
cappuccinatore to pre-heat the cups.
76
Switching the coffee machine off
with the master switch
If you are not going to be using the
coffee machine for a long period of
time, switch it off with the master switch
at the back of the machine.
Transporting the machine
If you are not going to use the coffee
machine for a long period of time and it
needs to be moved, e.g. when moving
house:
Please note:
– Empty and clean the coffee bean
container
– Empty and clean the water container
– Evaporate the coffee machine
– Clean the drip tray and waste
container
– Pack the machine securely
Evaporating the coffee
machine
The coffee machine should be
evaporated before it is stored for a long
period of time or transported any
distance - particularly at temperatures
below freezing.
Evaporating the machine involves
removing all traces of water from the
system to prevent water and frost
damage.
^ Switch the machine off with the
On/Off button -.
^ Empty the water container.
TIP Place a suitable container
underneath the hot water spout.
Caution. Danger of burning and
scalding from hot steam coming out
of the hot water spout.
The evaporation process is finished
when this message goes out.
^ Switch the machine off with the
master switch.
^ Clean the drip tray and waste
container.
You can now pack the coffee machine.
The system will need to be filled with
water when the coffee machine is
installed at its new location (see
"Preparing the coffee machine for
use").
Packing the machine
The coffee machine should only be
packed when it is clean and dry.
Residue of coffee grounds can cause
scratches on surfaces. Coffee and milk
residues or water can cause a build-up
of bacteria.
Use the original packing material,
including polystyrene pieces to pack
up the machine.
Also pack the operating instructions so
that they are available when the coffee
machine is next used.
^ Then press the OK button.
^ Press button k twice.
The evaporation process will start and
DRAIN THE SYSTEM will appear in the
display.

Electrical connection
All electrical work should be carried out
by a suitably qualified and competent
person only, in strict accordance with
current national and local safety
regulations (BS 7671 in the UK).
Installation, repairs and other work by
unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot
be held liable for unauthorised work.
Ensure power is not supplied to the
machine until after installation work has
been carried out.
The voltage and connected load are
given on the data plate located on the
appliance behind the drip tray. Please
ensure these match the household
mains supply. The fuse rating is quoted
on the plug.
The machine is supplied with a mains
cable with moulded plug for connection
to a 50 Hz, 220-240 V mains supply.
Connection should be made via a fused
plug and suitable switched socket
which is easily accessible after
installation.
Do not connect via an extension lead or
an adapter. These do not guarantee the
safety of the machine (e.g. danger of
overheating).
For extra safety it is advisable to protect
the machine with a suitable residual
current device (RCD). Contact a
qualified electrician for advice.
If the socket is not accessible after
installation (depending on country) an
additional means of disconnection must
be provided for all poles.
78
Do not connect the machine to an
inverter such as those used with an
autonomous energy source e.g. Solar
power.
When switched on peak loads in the
system can cause the safety switch off
mechanism to be triggered. This can
damage the electronic unit.
The machine must not be used with
so-called Energy saving devices either.
These reduce the amount of energy
supplied to the machine causing it to
overheat.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE
MUST BE EARTHED
Non-rewireable plugs BS 1363
The fuse cover must be refitted when
changing the fuse, and if the fuse cover
is lost, the plug must not be used until a
suitable replacement is obtained. The
colour of the correct replacement cover
is that of the coloured insert in the base
of the plug, or the colour that is
embossed in words on the base of the
plug (as applicable to the design of
plug fitted).
Replacement fuses should be ASTA
approved to BS 1362 and have the
correct rating. Replacement fuses and
fuse covers may be purchased from
your local electrical supplier.
