Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
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.
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 they are
offered for recycling.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
The plug must be rendered useless
and the cable cut off directly behind the
appliance to prevent misuse. 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.

for preparing ice.
Any other usage is at the owner's risk and could be dangerous.
~ This appliance is not suitable for storing and refrigerating
medications, blood plasma, laboratory preparations or similar
substances or products. Incorrect use of the appliance may result in
damage to or spoiling of the food or drinks being stored.
Furthermore, the appliance must not be operated in areas where
explosions may occur.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage resulting from improper or
incorrect use of the appliance.
~ This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or
lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning its use by a person
responsible for their safety, and are able to recognise the dangers of

~ Young children must not be allowed to use this appliance.
~ Older children may only use the appliance when its operation has
been clearly explained to them and they are able to use it safely,
recognising the dangers of misuse.
~ Cleaning work may only be carried out by older children under
the supervision of an adult.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Children should be supervised when they are near the appliance.
This appliance is not a toy! To avoid the risk of injury, do not allow
children to play with it or to use the controls. They will not
understand the potential dangers posed by it. They should be
supervised whenever you are working in the kitchen.
~ The door hinges can cause injury. Keep children well away at all
times.
~
Please bear in mind that by removing the dividing panel in the
large freezer basket, children may be tempted to climb inside. THIS
COULD PUT THEIR LIVES IN DANGER.
~ Danger of suffocation! Children may be able to wrap themselves
in packing material or pull it over their heads with the risk of
suffocation. Keep children away from any packing material.
Technical safety
~ The refrigerant circuit has been checked for leaks. This appliance
complies with all current local and national safety requirements.
~ 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 setting up 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,
10
Warning and Safety instructions
– switch off at the mains and unplug the appliance,
– ventilate the room where the appliance is located for several
minutes, and
– call Miele.
~ 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.
~ Before connecting the appliance, make sure that the connection
data on the data plate (fuse rating, voltage and rated load) matches
the mains electricity 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 it 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
tested regularly and, where there is any doubt, the household wiring
system should be inspected by a qualified electrician.
~ If the 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 unit or an extension lead. These do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ If moisture gets into electrical components, it could cause a short
circuit.
Therefore, do not operate this appliance in areas which are exposed
to moisture.
~ This appliance must not be installed and operated in mobile
installations (e.g. on a ship).
~ A damaged appliance is dangerous. Check the appliance for any
visible damage. Never install or attempt to use a damaged
appliance.
~ For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used when it has
been fully installed.
~ During installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply. It is only
completely isolated from the electricity supply when:
– the mains fuse has been disconnected, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in countries where this is
applicable), or
– it is switched off at the wall socket and the plug is withdrawn from
the socket, or it is switched off at the isolator.
~ Repairs and installation work by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for unauthorised
work. Installation, maintenance work and repairs to electrical
appliances must only be carried out by a Miele approved service
technician.
~ The manufacturer's warranty will be invalidated if the appliance is
not repaired by a Miele approved service technician.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele
spare parts. The manufacturer can only guarantee the safety of the
appliance when Miele replacement parts are used.
~ Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by a faulty
connection to the mains water supply.
~ Connection to the mains water supply and any repairs to the ice
cube maker must only be carried out by a Miele approved
technician.
~ The ice cube maker is not suitable for connection to a hot water
supply.
~ Connect the appliance to a potable water supply only.
~ Before plumbing the appliance in, ensure that it is disconnected
from the mains electricity supply.
~ Never tamper with the movable components on the ice cube
maker or the element on the ice cube maker. Danger of injury!
Correct use
~ The appliance is designed for use within a certain climate range
(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 the appliance in a room with too low an
ambient temperature, e.g. a garage, can lead to the appliance
switching off for longer periods so that it cannot maintain the
required temperature.
~ To ensure proper air flow in and out of the appliance, the air vents
must not be covered or blocked in any way.
It would also increase the energy consumption and could cause
damage to the appliance.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Make sure that any oil, or foods containing oil, do not come into
contact with plastic components as this could cause stress cracks.
~ Do not store explosive materials in the appliance or any products
containing propellants (e.g. spray cans). Flammable gas mixtures
can be ignited by electrical components.
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!
~ Do not store cans or bottles containing carbonated drinks or
liquids which could freeze in the freezer. The cans or bottles could
explode causing injury and damage.
~ If storing alcohol with a high percentage proof, make sure it is
tightly closed and stored upright in the refrigerator section. Danger
of explosion!
~ When cooling drinks quickly in the freezer, make sure bottles are
not left in for more than one hour; otherwise they could burst,
causing injury and damage.
~ Never handle frozen food or the metal parts of the appliance with
wet hands. Your hands may freeze to the frozen food or to the metal.
Danger of injury!
~ Do not take ice cubes out with your bare hands and never place
ice cubes or ice lollies in your mouth straight from the freezer. The
very low temperature of the frozen ice or lollies can cause frost burn
to the lips and tongue. Danger of injury!
14
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not refreeze food once it has thawed. Defrosted food should
be used up as quickly as possible as food soon loses its nutritional
value and goes off. Defrosted food may only be refrozen after it has
been cooked.
~ Food stored for too long may present a 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 the food
manufacturer's packaging regarding storage conditions and "use
by" dates.
~ To avoid the risk of any potential illness, do not deactivate the
reminder to change the water filter.
~ Use only Miele Original spare parts. If spare parts or accessories
from other manufacturers are used, the warranty will be invalidated,
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.
Pressurised steam could reach the electrical components and
cause a short circuit.
~ Do not use sharp edged objects to
– remove frost and ice,
– separate frozen foods and remove ice trays.
They will damage the evaporator, causing irreversible damage to
the appliance.
15
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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.
Disposal of your old appliance
~ Before disposing of an old appliance, first make the door 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 condenser,
– bending any pipework, or
– scratching the surface coating.
Splashes of refrigerant can harm the eyes.

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.
DynamicCooling
The temperature in the appliance will
rise:
. . . in the freezer
– 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 DynamicCooling fan automatically
switches on 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.
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.
. . . in the refrigerator and the
MasterFresh zone
We recommend a temperature of 4 °C
in the refrigerator.
The temperature in the MasterFresh
zone is controlled automatically and is
maintained at 1.5 °C.
23
The correct temperature
Setting the temperature in the
refrigerator/freezer zones
The temperatures in the refrigerator and
freezer zones are set independently of
one another.
^ Touch the access sensor so that it is
highlighted in yellow.
^ Touch the sensor for the refrigerator
or freezer zone so that it is
highlighted in yellow.
If the highest or lowest temperature that
it is possible to set is reached, the X or
Y sensor will disappear from the
display.
The temperature display on the
control panel always shows the
selected temperature.
When 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,
as it will take this long for the appliance
to reach the temperature. If, after this
time, the temperature is still too high or
too low, you will need to adjust it again.
Temperature range
The temperature can be adjusted:
^ The temperature inside the appliance
can be selected by touching the
arrow sensors on either side of the
temperature display.
By touching the
X sensor:

24
– In the refrigerator section from 2 °C
to 8 °C
– In the freezer section from -14 °C to
-24 °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.

The correct temperature
Temperature display
The temperature display on the
control panel always shows the
selected temperature.
The temperature displays flash if
– a different temperature is being set,
– the temperature in the appliance has
risen by several degrees, indicating
that the appliance is warming up too
much.
This loss of coldness is no cause for
concern in the following circumstances:
– when the door has been left open for
a while, e.g. for removing or storing a
large amount of food,
– when fresh food is being frozen.
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.
26
Alarm
Your appliance has been fitted with a
warning system which ensures that the
temperature in the appliance cannot
rise unnoticed and to avoid energy
being wasted if a door is left open.
The alarm will stop and the Alarm off

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.
Cold, heavy air sinks to the lowest
section of the appliance. Make use of
the different zones when placing food
in the appliance.
– pre-packed vegetables and other
fresh food with a label stating it
should be kept at a temperature of
approx. 4 °C.
This appliance has DynamicCooling,
which helps to keep an even
temperature when the fan is running.
When DynamicCooling is switched
on, the difference between the
various zones is less pronounced.
Warmest area
The warmest area is in the top section
of the door. Use this area for storing
butter and cheese.
Coldest area
The coldest area in the refrigerator is
directly above the MasterFresh zones.
However, the MasterFresh zones are
even colder.
Use these areas in the refrigerator and
in the MasterFresh zones for all delicate
and highly perishable food, e.g.
– fish, meat, poultry,
– sausage products, ready meals,
– dishes or baked goods containing
eggs or cream,
– fresh dough, cake mixtures, pizza or
quiche dough,
– soft cheese and other dairy
products,
31
Using the refrigerator efficiently
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 stored 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.
Ensure the air vents in the
refrigerator are not covered (e.g. by
bottles) as food may freeze.
Food must not touch the back wall
of the refrigerator, as it may freeze
to the back wall.
To allow air to circulate efficiently,
do not pack food too closely
together in the refrigerator. Make
sure that the vents at the back of the
appliance are not covered. They are
important for trouble-free operation
of the appliance.
32
Ensure that when placing food in the
refrigerator, a gap of at least 35 mm
is maintained under the ceiling of
the appliance to enable the air to
circulate freely.
Only use the area to the front of the
refrigerator shelves to place food
temporarily, but do not leave it there,
as when you shut the door it may
get pushed over, causing spillages.
Using the refrigerator efficiently
Food which should not be
stored in a refrigerator
the refrigerator and freezer upon arrival
home.
Not all food is suitable for refrigeration
at temperatures below 5 °C.
Cucumbers, for example, become
glassy, eggplants bitter and potatoes
sweet. Tomatoes and oranges lose their
aroma, and the peel on citrus fruits
hardens.
Storing food correctly
Foods which are sensitive to cold
include:
– Pineapples, avocados, bananas,
pomegranates, mangoes, melons,
papayas, passionfruit,
citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges,
mandarines, grapefruits
– Fruit which is not yet ripe
Food should generally be stored
covered or packaged in the refrigerator
section (there are some exceptions to
this rule in the MasterFresh zones - see
below). This will prevent food smells
from affecting other foods, food from
drying out, and also any
cross-contamination of bacteria. This is
especially important for storing animal
products.
The shelf life of food can be
significantly increased by setting the
correct temperature and maintaining
good standards of hygiene.
– Eggplants, cucumbers, potatoes,
capiscum, tomatoes, zucchini
– Some hard cheeses, e.g. Parmesan
What to be aware of when
shopping for food
The freshness of food when first placed
in the appliance is the most important
factor in determining how long it stays
fresh, and how long it can be kept in
the appliance. 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. Once food has
started to deteriorate, this process
cannot be reversed. As little as two
hours outside the refrigerator can
cause food to start deteriorating.
Tip: Take a cool bag when shopping
and place all cold food immediately in
33
Storing food in the MasterFresh zones
Food is stored in the MasterFresh
zones at a lower temperature than in
the conventional refrigerator section.
The humidity level in the MasterFresh
zones can be regulated to provide the
correct conditions for food stored inside
them.
Due to the optimum storage conditions
created within the MasterFresh zones,
food remains fresh for longer, and
flavour and vitamins are retained.
The closer the storage humidity is to the
moisture content of the food, the crisper
and fresher the food remains over a
longer period, as the water content of
the food is largely retained in the
MasterFresh zones.
Storing food in the MasterFresh
zones
The MasterFresh drawer is divided into
two zones.
Storage temperature
The optimum storage temperature for
fresh food which is not sensitive to the
cold is 0 - 3 °C. This is the temperature
range which is automatically
maintained in the MasterFresh zones.
Food can be stored in the MasterFresh
zones at this temperature without loss
of freshness for considerably longer
than in a standard refrigerator, as the
deterioration process is decelerated at
this temperature.
Remember that the initial freshness
of the food when placed in the
refrigerator is crucial for good
storage results.
Humidity level
The humidity level in the
MasterFresh zones depends on:
– the moisture content of the
stored food, and
– the quantity of food
being stored.
34
^ Touch the sensor for the MasterFresh
zone in which you wish to place food.
The sensor for the selected
MasterFresh zone will be highlighted in
yellow. The symbols for the food you
wish to store now appear:
– Left: Foods that require high humidity
such as fruit and vegetables
– Right: Foods that require a dry
atmosphere such as meat, fish and
dairy products
^ Touch the sensor for the type of food
that you wish to store in the
MasterFresh zone selected.
Storing food in the MasterFresh zones
^ You can deselect the type of food by
touching the relevant sensor again.
Foods that prefer a dry atmosphere
include:
You cannot store foods that like high
humidity alongside foods that prefer a
dry atmosphere. However, you can
store several foods from the same
humidity/dry group at the same time.
– fresh fish, shellfish, meat, poultry,
sausages, dairy products and
specialty salads.
^ Place the food in its corresponding
MasterFresh zone.
Foods that prefer a higher humidity
include:
– Freshly picked vegetables, lettuce,
herbs, mushrooms, cabbages and
fruit.
TIP
The level of humidity in the
MasterFresh zones is dependent
upon the moisture content of the
food and how much food is being
stored in the zones.
When storing a small amount of
food, it is a good idea to store it in
packaging.
Please note that foods rich in protein
deteriorate faster than others.
Shellfish, for example, deteriorates
faster than fish, and fish deteriorates
faster than meat.
Always keep these foods covered or
wrapped.
Exception: Meat The surface of the
meat dries out slightly, helping to
prevent the growth of bacteria, which
results in the meat lasting longer. To
prevent the risk of bacterial
cross-contamination and meat
deteriorating, do not let one type of
meat come into direct contact with
another type.
Take food out of the MasterFresh
zones approx. 30 - 60 minutes
before using it. The aroma and taste
do not fully develop until the food
has reached room temperature.
Please note: The function of the
MasterFresh zones is reduced when
the dividing panel is not in place.
35
Storing food in the MasterFresh zones
If you are not satisfied with the results of your stored food (e.g. food loses
firmness and wilts shortly after placing in the appliance), keep in mind the
following instructions:
^ Only place fresh food in the appliance as the initial condition of the food is
crucial to maintaining freshness.
^ Clean the MasterFresh zones before storing food in them.
^ Dry the surface of very moist food before placing it in the MasterFresh zones.
^ Do not store any food in the MasterFresh zones which is sensitive to cold
(see "Food which should not be stored in a refrigerator").
^ Please note that not all types of food can be stored together (see "Can all types
of food be stored together?").
^ Allocate the appropriate settings to food you wish to store (e.g. humid or dry
storage).
^ Store food with a high moisture content unwrapped in the MasterFresh zones.
A high humidity level will be achieved by means of the moisture already
contained within the food being stored.
If the humidity level is not high enough (e.g. too little food is being stored), it can
be increased by placing a damp sponge in the drawer.
^ If you think that the temperature in the MasterFresh zones is not correct, try
adjusting it slightly by 1 to 2 °C via the refrigerator section temperature control.
To avoid frost damage to food, a higher temperature must be set if ice crystals
begin to form on the bottom of the MasterFresh zones.
^ If too much water collects at the bottom of the MasterFresh zones, dry it with a
cloth. If necessary, dry food before placing it in the appliance or place a rack at
the bottom of the MasterFresh zones to allow water to drain off.
36
Arranging the interior fittings
Moving the shelves
The MasterFresh drawer
The shelves can be adjusted according
to the height of the food.
The MasterFresh drawer sits on
telescopic runners, and can be fully
pulled out for loading and unloading.
^ Hold the shelf on both sides and
raise it slightly so that it can be lifted
over the catches at the back.
For cleaning, the MasterFresh drawer
can be removed completely.
^ Pull the shelf forwards.
^ Place the shelf at the required level,
ensuring that it has engaged in the
catches at the back.
^ Make sure that the shelf is on
straight.
Floating deli drawer
The drawer can be positioned to the
right or left by sliding it to the required
position.
It can also be placed, together with its
holder, under a different shelf - or this
can be achieved by simply swapping
the shelves over.
^ Pull the MasterFresh drawer out as
far it will go.

Freezing and storing food
Freezing fresh food
Storing frozen 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.
When buying frozen food to store in
your freezer section, check
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.
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.
– 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.
41
Freezing and storing food
Home freezing
Only freeze fresh food which is in 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
lightly before freezing, but care
should be taken as the taste of some
spices alters when frozen.
– Do not place hot food or drinks in the
freezer. This causes already frozen
food to thaw, and increases the energy
consumption considerably. Allow hot
food 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.
42
Freezing and storing food
Before placing food in the freezer
Defrosting
^ When freezing more than 2 kg of
fresh food, switch on the SuperFreeze function for some time before
placing the food in the freezer (see
"SuperFreeze").
This also helps to prevent food that is
already in the freezer from starting to
defrost.
Frozen food can be defrosted in
different ways:
Placing food in the freezer
Food to be frozen can be placed
anywhere in the freezer.
Place large quantities of food in the
large freezer basket.
Please follow the guidelines in the table
below regarding recommended
weights for the baskets:
Small
basket
Large
basket
KF 1811 Vi,
KF 1811 Vi
14 kg
33 kg
KF 1911 Vi,
KF 1911 Vi
19 kg
43 kg
^ Place the food flat in the bottom of
the basket 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.
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.
– 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.
43
Freezing and storing food
Cooling drinks
To cool drinks quickly, place them in
the refrigerator section, and switch on
the SuperCool function. If bottles are,
however, placed in the freezer section
for rapid cooling, make sure they are
not left in for more than one hour, as
they could burst.
44
Making ice cubes
For the automatic ice cube maker to
operate, it must be connected to the
mains water supply (see "Mains
water connection").
Switching on the ice cube
maker
^ Make sure that the ice cube
container is correctly located
underneath the ice cube maker.
The container must be completely
shut for ice cubes to be produced.
^ Touch the sensor for the freezer
section so that it is highlighted in
yellow.
^ Touch the On/Off sensor for the ice
cube maker so that it is highlighted in
yellow.
temperature in the freezer: The lower
the temperature, the more ice cubes
are produced within a certain time
frame.
After the appliance has been switched
on for the first time it can take up to 10
hours for the first ice cubes to drop out
of the ice cube maker and collect in the
container.
Ice cube production is halted
automatically when the ice cube
container is full.
Do not place bottles or other items
in the ice cube maker to chill them
quickly. The ice cube maker could
become blocked and, as a result,
be damaged.
The first three containers of ice
cubes after switching on for the first
time must not be consumed
because the water used will have
been used to rinse through the
pipework.
This is also the case when the
appliance has been switched off for
a long time.
Once the freezer section has cooled
down to its set temperature, the ice
cube maker will fill with water.
When the water has frozen, the ice
cubes will fall out of the ice cube maker
into the ice cube container.
The ice cube maker can make up to
140 ice cubes in 24 hours.
The number of ice cubes which the
appliance makes depends on the
45
Making ice cubes
Switching off the ice cube
maker
The appliance must be
disconnected from the mains water
supply a few hours before the ice

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.
^ Touch the On/Off sensor for the ice
cube maker so that it is highlighted in
white.
46
Defrosting
Refrigerator section and
MasterFresh zone
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the refrigerator section
and the MasterFresh zone whilst in use.
You do not need to remove this, as it
will defrost and evaporate automatically
with the warmth generated by the
appliance.
Freezer section
This appliance is equipped with a "Frost
free" system. The freezer section
defrosts automatically.
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.
47

Cleaning and care
Aluminium frames
Ice cube container
The frames on the shelves inside the
appliance and in the door are made
from aluminium.
The ice cube container sits on
telescopic runners, and can be fully
extended for loading and unloading.
Aluminium is affected by the way that
light falls on it, by the surrounding
environment and by the angle you
observe it from.
It is also susceptible to scratching.
For cleaning, this drawer can be
removed completely.
^ Pull the ice cube container out as far
as it will go.
The aluminium frames may suffer
discolouration or damage if soiling is
left on for too long. Remove any
soiling immediately.
^ Raise the snap fittings on both sides
and lift the ice cube container out.
To avoid injury or damage to the
telescopic runners, make sure that
they are pushed back into the
appliance.
To replace the ice cube container:
^ Pull the telescopic rails out as far as
they will go.
^ Place the ice cube container on the
rails so that it engages at the back
and front.
^ Push the ice cube container back in.
49
Cleaning and care
Humidity filters
The two special humidity filters above
the MasterFresh drawers have to be
removed for cleaning.
^ Take off the filter mat.
^ Pull out the MasterFresh drawer and
remove it.

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.
50
Cleaning and care
Door seals
Do not use any oils or grease on the
door seals as these will cause the
seals to deteriorate and become
porous over time.
The door seals should be cleaned
regularly with clean water, and then
wiped dry with a soft cloth.
After cleaning
^ Replace all shelves and accessories
in the refrigerator section.
^ Reconnect the appliance to the
electricity supply and switch it on.

Problem solving guide
Repair work to electrical appliances
must 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 appliance does not get cold.
^ Check whether the appliance has
been switched on. If it is switched on,
the access sensor will light up in the
display.
^ 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 door 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.
. . . the compressor is switching on
too frequently and for too long.
^ Check that the plug is correctly
inserted into the socket and switched
on.
^ Check whether the ventilation gaps in
the plinth have been covered over or
become too dusty.
^ Check whether the mains fuse has
tripped or whether the fridge freezer,
mains voltage or another appliance is
faulty.
If this is the case, contact a qualified
electrician or Miele.
^ 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 appliance doors are
closed properly.
^ Check the temperature settings.
. . . the temperature in the refrigerator
or freezer is too low.
^ Increase the temperature.

because the freezer 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 to
become too warm.

handle or plastic scraper, to prise it
apart carefully.
. . . the alarm sounds.
Has the appliance door been open for
longer than 5 minutes?
^ Close the appliance door.
. . . the alarm sounds and the "Alarm
off" sensor lights up or is flashing.
^ The refrigerator door or the freezer
drawer is open, or
^ The temperature in one of the zones
has risen significantly because
– too much warm air from the room has
entered the appliance,
– large quantities of food have recently
been placed in the freezer,
– there has been a power cut.
The alarm will stop and the "Alarm off"
sensor in the display will go out again
as soon as the temperature has
dropped down to the correct level
again.
If the temperature rises in the freezer,
the temperature display will show the
highest temperature that was reached
during the time the temperature in the
freezer rose.
Check the condition of the food in the

Installation
Securing the covers
^ Fit the two cover strips to both sides
of the refrigerator door and freezer
drawer, clicking them into the space
between the appliance door/drawer
and the furniture front, starting at the
bottom and working up to the top.
^ Now attach the covers onto the
retaining clips on both sides.
In the case of side-by-side
installation, the cover strips are only
required on the outer side.
^ Secure the retaining clips for the
covers on both sides.
91
Installation
Fitting the plinth facing
Do not cover the vents in the plinth.
This will damage the appliance.
^ Trim the plinth facing to the required
length and height (cut along the
lower edge of the plinth facing where
it touches the floor).
^ Fit the cover to the light contact
switch so that it clicks into place as
shown.
^ Secure the plinth to the appliance,
and attach the cover discs supplied.
^ Fit the cover to the top edge of the
freezer drawer as shown.
^ Now fit the plinth facing.
92
Installation
Fitting the air separator
The air separator in the vent
underneath separates air entering the
appliance from that leaving it.
It also stops warm air flowing into the
appliance, which would cause a short
circuit.
^ If necessary, the three parts of the air
separator can be shortened to the
correct height.
^ Refit the foam parts in the sides.
^ Clip the air separator to the left and
right of the partition in the exhaust
grille. Make sure that it clicks into
place and that the foam partition is
guided under the exhaust grille.
