Description of the appliance
Features
Electronic controls
In addition to operating the various
cooking programmes to bake, roast
and grill, the electronic controls also
offer the following features:
– Clock display
– Minute minder
– Timer to automatically switch cooking
programmes on and off with automatic use made of residual heat
– Programme lock, to prevent
unintentional altering of programme
settings
– System lock, to prevent the
appliance being used unintentionally
– Safety cut-out
Door contact switch
There is a door contact switch in the
right hand door hinge.
If the door is opened during operation,
the door contact switch causes the
oven heating, and the fan if a "Fan"
setting is being used, to be switched
off.
This helps reduce the amount of heat
lost from the oven cavity, e.g. when
basting a roast.
PerfectClean treated surfaces
The following surfaces are all treated
with PerfectClean enamelling.
– Oven interior
– Runners
– Baking tray
– Grill pan
Cooling system
As soon as the oven is switched on a
cooling fan is automatically engaged.
The cooling fan mixes hot air from the
oven cavity with cool room air before
venting it out into the kitchen through
vents located between the appliance
door and the control panel.
The controls and door handle will get
slightly warm. They are quite safe to
touch.
– Anti-splash tray
– Rack
PerfectClean enamelled surfaces have
very good anti-stick properties and are
much easier to keep clean than
conventional enamel, if cleaned
regularly.
See "Cleaning and care" for more
information.
The cooling fan will continue to run for a
while after the oven has been switched
off to prevent any humidity building up
in the oven, on the control panel or in
the oven housing unit. When the
temperature in the oven has fallen
sufficiently the cooling fan will switch off
automatically.

Description of the appliance
Catalytic enamelled surfaces
Accessories
The back panel, roof liner and side
liners (if fitted) are coated with dark
grey catalytic enamel. Soiling from oil
and fat is burnt off these surfaces when
very high temperatures are used in the
oven.
The following accessories are supplied
with this oven.
This makes it easier to clean
inaccessible areas of the oven.
See "Cleaning and care" for more
information.
Energy efficiency rating
according to EN 50304
These and other accessories are also
available to order from the Miele Spare
Parts Dept. or your Miele Dealer. See
"Extra Accessories" further on in this
booklet for more details.
Baking tray, grill pan and rack
The baking tray, grill pan and rack are
fitted with non-tip safety notches which
prevent them being pulled right out
when they only need to be partially
pulled out.
These appliances are rated energy
efficiency class B in accordance with
EN 50304. Tests were carried out using
the "Fan" oven function.
When pushing the tray, pan and rack
back in, always ensure that the
safety notches are at the rear of the
oven (see illustration).
The tray, pan and rack can then only be
taken out of the oven by raising them
upwards and then pulling out.
6
Description of the appliance
Roasting filter
Slide opener
The roasting filter must be fitted in front
of the fan when cooking anything fatty
or where food is likely to splatter, e.g.
when open roasting or grilling meat.
Use the slide opener for lifting off the
halogen lamp cover.
See "Extra accessories" for a
description and illustration of the
handle and anti-splash tray.
The droplets of fat caught up in the
circulating air are deposited on the
roasting filter. This helps to keep the
oven and the area behind the interior
back panel cleaner.
Do not use the roasting filter when
baking. This would increase the
times needed for baking and give
uneven browning results.
7
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 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.
8
Disposal of your old appliance
Old appliances contain materials which
can be reclaimed or recycled. Please
contact your dealer, your local waste
collection centre or scrap merchant
about potential recycling schemes.
Ensure that the appliance presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
See the appropriate section in the
Warning and safety instructions.
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
This appliance conforms to current
safety requirements. Incorrect use
can, however, lead to personal injury
and damage to the appliance.
Before installation and before using
for the first time, read the operating
instructions carefully.
They contain important notes on
installation, safety, operation and
care of the appliance. This way you
will avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the appliance.
Keep these instructions in a safe
place and pass them on to any
future user.
Correct usage
The appliance is intended for
domestic use to cook food, and in
particular to bake, roast, defrost, cook,
dry fruit etc, and to grill.
Any other usage is at the owner's risk
and could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held
responsible for damage caused by
incorrect or improper use of the
appliance.
Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply make sure that
the voltage and frequency correspond
to the rating on the data plate,
otherwise the appliance could be
damaged.
Consult a competent person if in doubt.

responsible for the consequences of an
inadequate earthing system (e.g.
electric shock).
The appliance must be built in
before operation to ensure that no
electrical components are accessible.
Never open the housing of the
appliance.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous to the user and can
cause operational faults.
Do not let children access the
appliance or its controls. Supervise
its use by the elderly or infirm. If
allowing older children to use the
appliance without supervision please
ensure that they are aware of how the
oven works and understand the
dangers of improper use.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Installation work and repairs may
only be carried out by suitably
qualified and competent persons in
accordance with local and national
safety regulations.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous and the
manufacturer will not be held
responsible.
The appliance is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
when:
– the mains fuse is withdrawn
– or the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable)
– it is switched off at the wall socket.
On appliances fitted with a plug
make sure you pull only on the plug
and not on the cable when
disconnecting from the mains.
Ensure that current is not supplied to
the appliance while maintenance or
repair work is being carried out.
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).
This equipment is not designed for
maritime use or for use in mobile
installations such as caravans, aircraft
etc. However it may be suitable for
such usage subject to a risk
assessment of the installation being
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
10
Use
Caution, danger of burning.
High temperatures are produced by
the oven.
Great care should be taken to
ensure that small children do not
touch the appliance when it is being
used. Children's skin is far more
sensitive to high temperatures than that
of adults.
External parts of the oven such as the
door glass, handle vent and control
panel can become quite hot.
Children should not be left alone or
unattended in an area where an
oven is in use. They should never be
allowed to sit or stand on any part of
the oven or play with it.
Do not store items of interest to children
in cabinets above an oven. Children
climbing on the oven to reach these
items could be seriously injured.
Use of heat-resistant oven gloves
is recommended when placing
food in the oven, turning or removing it.
When working with "Conventional"
heating or when grilling, the element in
the roof of the oven gets very hot, and
there is a danger of being burnt.
When cleaning the roof of the oven
wait until the grill element has
cooled down before lowering it. Danger
of burning.
Do not use force to pull it down as
this can cause the element to
break.
Warning and Safety instructions
Do not use plastic containers.
These melt at high temperatures
and could damage the appliance.
Do not heat up unopened tins or
jars of food in the oven. Pressure
can build up and they may explode.
This could result in injury or damage.
Do not push pots and pans around
on the oven floor as this could
damage the surface.
Do not lean or sit on an open oven
door, or place heavy items on it.
This could damage the appliance. The
oven door can support a maximum load
of 15 kg.
Make sure that nothing gets
trapped between the door and the
oven.
Cover any food which is left in the
oven to be kept hot. Any moisture
in the food could lead to corrosion
damage in the oven. This also prevents
the food from drying out.
If food is left in the oven after
cooking, e.g. to take advantage of
the residual heat, turn the temperature
selector to the lowest setting. Leave the
function selector at the position set.
Do not switch the appliance off until the
food has been removed.
Moisture in the oven could lead to
condensation forming on the control
panel and surrounding kitchen furniture
and drops of moisture collecting under
the worktop.
Condensation can:
- damage the housing unit / worktop.
- lead to moisture damage in the oven.
Bake larger deep-frozen items
such as pizzas on baking paper on
the rack itself or in the pizza pan (see
"Extra accessories"). Placing them on
the baking tray or in the grill pan can
cause the metal to distort. This
distortion would increase with
subsequent use.
Deep frozen foods such as oven chips
or potato croquettes can be cooked on
the baking tray or grill pan.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
Never add water to food on a hot
baking tray or grill pan or directly
onto food in a hot oven. The steam
created could cause serious burns or
scalding and the sudden change in
temperature can damage the enamel.
Never line the floor of the oven with
aluminium foil when using
Conventional heat A/Bottom heat
B/Intensive baking F. Do not place a
dish, tin, baking tray or grill pan on the
floor of the oven.
If using a grill pan made by a different
manufacturer make sure that there is a
gap of at least 6 cm between the
bottom of the pan and the floor of the
oven.
If these instructions are not observed
the bottom heat will be blocked. This
can cause permanent damage to the
floor of the oven.
Protective aluminium foil panels are
available in retail outlets which are
supposed to protect the oven cavity
from soiling and reduce the need for
cleaning. If used cooking and baking
times will increase considerably.
They can also cause damage to the
appliance (e.g. by blocking the heat).
12
General notes
Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil
or fats as these are a fire hazard if
overheated.
Do not use the oven to heat up the
room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects left near the oven
could catch fire.
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated.
Many factors will affect the overall
cooking time, including the size and
amount of food, its temperature,
changes to the recipe and the shape
and size of cooking container.
Some foods may contain micro
organisms which are only destroyed by
thorough cooking at temperatures over
70º C for a minimum of 10 minutes.
When cooking or reheating foods e.g.
poultry it is particulary important that
food is fully cooked through. If in doubt
select a longer cooking or reheating
time.
It is important that the heat is allowed to
spread evenly throughout the food
being cooked. This can be achieved by
stirring and/or turning the food during
cooking.
Warning and Safety instructions
When using kitchen appliances
connected to sockets near the
oven, ensure that the cable cannot get
trapped in a hot oven door, which could
melt the cable insulation and be
dangerous.
Danger of electric shock.
Never use steam cleaning
apparatus to clean the appliance.
The steam could attack the electrical
components and cause a short circuit.
If using alcohol in your recipes
high temperatures can cause the
alcohol to vaporise and under adverse
circumstances the alcohol can catch
light on the hot heating elements.
Alcohol should be burnt off before the
dish is placed in the oven to avoid this
danger.
Disposal of your old appliance
Before throwing an old appliance
away it must first be made
unusable. Switch off and disconnect it
from the power supply, cut off the cable
directly behind the appliance and
render any plug useless. This should
be done by a competent person.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
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 appliance guarantee.

Description of the oven systems
Fan Heat D
Intensive baking F
This system works by the circulation of
heated air.
This method combines "Fan Heat" with
heat from the lower heating element,
and is particularly useful for dishes that
require a moist topping and crisp base
like pizza and quiche lorraine.
A fan situated on the back wall of the
oven sucks in the air, heats it over a
ring element and blows the heated air
through the carefully spaced openings
in the rear panel of the oven, enabling
approx. 20 °C lower temperatures to be
used than with the Conventional
heating system.
The oven does not usually need to be
pre-heated as the heated air reaches
the food straight away.
Exception: Pre-heating may be
necessary for foods which cook in less
than 20 minutes and for foods such as
puff pastry and yeast mixtures where
instant heat is required to make them
rise quickly.
Using the fan heating system you can
bake and roast on different levels at the
same time.
Auto Roast E
The oven heats initially to a high
temperature (230 °C) which seals the
meat to keep it succulent and tasty. As
soon as this temperature has been
reached, the oven temperature
automatically drops back down to the
pre-selected setting.
22
Conventional A
With the conventional method of
heating, radiant heat is directed onto
the food from above and below. It is
useful where a fairly long cooking time
is required and a deep colour and good
rise are needed.
It is usually necessary to pre-heat the
oven when using this method.
Defrost G
Defrost can be operated without
heating, or at a temperature of up to 50
°C. When the defrost system is used
without heating the air is circulated by
the fan at room temperature.
Description of the oven systems
Fan Grill N
The hot air from the grill is distributed
over the food by the fan on the rear wall
of the oven. This enables a lower
temperature to be selected than for
conventional grilling.
More practical advice about these
cooking functions is given in the
"Baking", "Roasting" and "Grilling"
sections of this booK and in the
Miele Cookbook supplied with the
oven.
The grill is thermostatically controlled
and at times during grilling will not glow
red. This is normal.
Pre-heat the grill for at least 5 minutes
with the door closed.
Grill (1) m
The inner part of the upper heating
element acts as the grill. This will glow
red for a few minutes after being
switched on, and it is then ready for
use.
Use the Grill 1 setting for small
quantities.
The grill is thermostatically controlled
and at times during grilling will not glow
red. This is normal.
Grill 2 n
The entire upper heating element acts
as the grill.
This method is particularly good for
grilling large quantities of food using
the grill pan to its full extent.
The grill is thermostatically controlled
and at times during grilling will not glow
red. This is normal.
23
Using the oven
A programme must first be selected
using the Programme selector and
then, if necessary, the temperature
changed.
The programmes on this oven have
pre-set recommended temperatures to
simplify operation.
Selecting an oven setting
– Light H
Turns on the oven light
independently.
– Fan Heat D
For baking or roasting on several
levels at the same time.
– Auto Roast E
Initial high temperature to seal meat
followed by normal roasting
temperature.
Not suitable for baking,
except for baking freshly prepared
wholemeal or rye doughs, (not
packet mixes).
– Top heat C
For browning dishes, finishing dishes
with a cheese topping.
– Conventional A
Top and bottom heat together for
long, slow baking of traditional
recipes, e.g. fruit cake, casseroles.
– Bottom heat B
Use this setting towards the end of
baking, to brown the base of a cake.
– Defrost G
For gentle defrosting of deep frozen
foods.
^ Turn the programme dial clockwise or
anti-clockwise to the required
programme position.
When you do this the symbols of any
functions which are available in this
setting will light up in the display.
24
Using the oven
– Intensive Bake F
For recipes which require a moist
topping, and a crisp base, e.g.
pizzas and quiche lorraine, German
style open fruit cakes and
cheesecake. Not suitable for roasting
or shallow baking, (the base will
brown too much).
– Fan Grill N
For grilling thick cuts, e.g. rolled
meat, poultry.
Grill with the oven door closed.
– Grill 1 m
For grilling flat items, small
quantities, and for browning food in
small dishes.
Grill with the oven door closed.
– Grill 2 n
For grilling flat items, large quantities,
and for browning food in larger
dishes.
Grill with the oven door closed.
Selecting a temperature
As soon as the programme selector is
turned to a setting the following will
appear in the display
– the recommended pre-set
temperature,
– the symbols of any function that can
be altered from this programme
selector position.
If you are happy with the recommended
pre-set temperature, the display will
change a few seconds later to show
this as the target temperature.
The oven starts to heat up.
The display will then change to show
the actual temperature in the oven,
and depending on which programme is
being used the symbol p or U will also
show.
The increase of temperature can be
followed in the display until the target
temperature is reached.
If the door is opened or the target
temperature reduced during cooking,
the actual temperature will also go
down in the display.

26
Using the oven
Using the oven
Below is an example of setting a simple
programme.
To bake a cake using Fan heat D,
150 °C.
^ Place the cake in the oven and close
the door.
^ As soon as triangle V starts to flash
underneath the temperature symbol,
use the (–/+) input dial to reduce the
temperature to 150°.
Once this setting has been accepted
^ Turn the programme selector to the
Fan D position.
– the actual temperature in the oven
will be displayed,
– and the oven heating will switch on,
– together with the cooling fan.
The following will appear in the display:
Take the cake out of the oven when it is
ready.
– the recommended pre-set
temperature of 160 °C,
^ Turn the programme selector to "0".
– the symbols of any function that can
be altered from this programme
selector position.
The cooling fan will continue to run for
a while after the oven has been
switched off to prevent any humidity
building up in the oven, on the control
panel or in the oven housing unit. When
the temperature in the oven has fallen
sufficiently the cooling fan will switch off
automatically. The oven will cool down
faster if the door is left partially or fully
open.
27
Using the oven
Rapid heat-up
To switch off "rapid heat-up"
With the following programmes:
– Auto Roast E
Rapid heat-up should not be used for
some items such as pizza, biscuits and
small cakes because they will brown
too quickly from the top.
– Conventional A
To switch it off:
either the top element or the fan
element will come on during the heating
up phase to enable the oven to reach
the required temperature as quickly as
possible.
^ Call up the U symbol.
– Fan Heat D
^ Reduce the temperature to 100 °C.
The arrow next to the p symbol will go
out.
^ Re-set the temperature to the setting
you want.
"Rapid heat-up" is now switched off for
this particular cooking process.
Food which browns quickly should not
be placed at the top of the oven when
rapid heat up is being used.
The symbol U in the top line of the
display indicates that Rapid heat-up is
switched on.
The p symbol will appear in the display
for all programmes which do not have
rapid heat-up.
28
"Rapid heat-up" is available for the next
programme once the oven function
selector has been turned to "0" at the
end of the programme.
Using the oven
Pre-heating the oven
Most dishes can be placed in a cold
oven. They will then make use of the
heat produced during the heating-up
phase.
It is only necessary to pre-heat the oven
in certain instances.
With Fan heat D
Pre-heat the oven for foods which cook
in less than 20 minutes and for foods
such as puff pastries and yeast
mixtures where instant heat is required
to make them rise quickly.
With Conventional heating A
Pre-heat the oven where a fairly long
cooking time is required and a deep
colour and good rise are needed.
Rapid heat-up during the
pre-heating phase should be
switched off when baking pizza and
delicate items such as biscuits and
small cakes. Otherwise they will get
brown too quickly.
29
Programming cooking times
You can set the oven to switch itself off
automatically or to switch itself on and
off automatically when baking and

Select the ) symbol to specify the
time you want the oven to switch itself
off automatically.
Programming cooking times
Symbols in the display
In addition to the m and p symbols the
symbols representing the duration, start
and finish time are also displayed
constantly if times have been entered
for a cooking programme.
If you have only entered the duration
(e. g. 1 1/2 h) , the display will show:
To switch a programme on and off
automatically there are several ways of
entering the times:
– Duration g and End time )
– Start time f and duration g
– Start time f and End time )
The time which has not been entered is
calculated automatically.
The p and m symbols will show in the
display together with the symbols
representing times entered e.g.
Duration and End time:
– The actual temperature,
– the p, m and g symbols.
The triangle V underneath the g
symbol indicates that a programme
duration is being displayed. The time
will count down in the display.
To view the required temperature or the
time of day in the display you will have
to use the function dial to move the
triangle V underneath the respective
symbol.
The triangle V underneath the symbol
indicates the last time that was entered.
To see the other times entered move
the triangle under the respective
symbol.
As soon as the function dial is turned all
functions which can be called up or
altered are displayed.
31
Programming cooking times
Whilst a programme is running the
following show in the display
At the end of cooking time
– an audible tone sounds for approx.
5 seconds.
– The ) symbol flashes,
– The cooling fan will continue running
until the temperature in the oven has
fallen sufficiently.
– The actual temperature and
– Duration or End time
Shortly before the end of cooking time
the oven heating switches off
automatically.
The Residual heat function then comes
into action.
"EC" now appears in the oven display
instead of the actual oven temperature
to show that the oven is in energy save
mode.
The oven heating will switch on again if:
– The required temperature is altered.
– The cooking time is lengthened
significantly.
32
Both the audible tone and the visual
display can be cancelled by:
– Turning the function dial.
If the food is not cooked to your
taste, a new cooking time can be
entered.
– Turning the programme selector to
"0".
If the audible tone is not switched off it
will continue to sound at 5 minute
intervals as a reminder that cooking
time has finished. This reminder
continues for up to an hour.
Programming cooking times
Switching the cooking process
off automatically
To switch a programme off
automatically a duration has to be
entered. The following example shows
the programming for baking a cake
using Fan Heat D/160 °C, 45 minutes.
^ Place the cake tin in the oven and
close the door.
^ Select a function and temperature.
^ Enter the duration in Hours:Minutes
by turning the (–/+) input dial (left
hand dial).
After entering the data
– the temperature rise can be followed
in the display,
^ Call up the g symbol for duration by
turning the function dial (right hand

up.
Once the time set has elapsed, the
oven will switch itself off automatically.
"0:00" and the actual temperature in the
oven (e.g. 23 °C) will appear in the
display.
33
Programming cooking times
Switching on and off
automatically
Now set the End time :
^ Call up the ) symbol for End time.
It is a good idea to set the oven to
switch on and off automatically when
roasting.
When baking the oven should not be
set to start a long time off. The batter or
dough will dry out and the raising
agents will lose their effectiveness.
See the following example for an
explanation of how to do this.
The time is 9:05. A roast needs 1 1/2 h
using Auto Roast E at 160 °C and
should be ready at 13:15.
The time of day plus the cooking time
entered appear in the display (9:05 +
1:30 = 10:35).
^ Enter the end time (13:15) in
Hours:Minutes.
^ Place the roast in the oven and close
the door.
^ Select Auto Roast and set a
temperature.
First enter the duration :
^ Call up the g symbol for duration.
"0:00" and the actual temperature in the
oven (e.g. 23 °C) will appear in the
display.
^ Enter the duration (1 1/2 h) in
Hours:Minutes.
34
Once this setting has been accepted
– the oven heating and cooling fan
switch off,
– the g and ) symbols indicate that
a programme has been set.
Programming cooking times
Using the residual heat,
Energy-save function
A Start time (11:45) will show in the
display, when you call up the f
symbol.
The oven will start heating up at this
time and the duration will then be
displayed.
If you have entered times for a cooking
programme, the oven heating will
switch off shortly before the end of the
time set.
The residual heat in the oven is
sufficient to complete the cooking
process.
Using the residual heat in the oven
saves energy.
Once the time set has elapsed, the
oven will switch itself off automatically.
Please note the following:
In addition to the options given, you
can also enter the beginning and end,
or just the end, using the appropriate
symbols.
"EC" will appear in the display to show
that the oven is in energy save mode.
The cooling fan continues to run, as
does the hot air fan if a "fan" setting was
chosen.
To check and change an
entered time
It is possible to check or change times
entered for a cooking process, at any
time by calling up the relevant symbol.
To delete a time entered
^ Turn the programme selector to "0".
If there is a power cut all data entered
will be deleted.
35
Setting the minute minder
The minute minder can be used to time
any activity in the kitchen, e.g. boiling
eggs. (It cannot be used to switch the
oven off at the end of a set time).
You can enter a time up to a maximum
of 12 hours.
You can set the minute minder at the
same time as another timed
programme, e.g. as a reminder to baste
your roast or add seasoning etc.
To enter or change a time:
At the end of the set time
– an audible tone sounds for approx.
5 seconds.
– At the same time the l symbol
flashes for approx. 1 minute.
To cancel the minute minder:
^ Select the l symbol again. Make
sure the triangle underneath the

Baking
The following settings are
recommended for baking:
– Fan Heat D
– Intensive baking F
– Conventional A
Bakeware
For the best baking results make sure
that you chose bakeware in a material
suitable for the particular heating
system.
Fan Heat D, Intensive baking F
Most types of heat-resistant tins or
dishes are suitable, including
thin-walled and bright, non-reflective
metal tins. Place the tin or dish on the
baking tray in the oven, with the sloping
edge of the tray towards the door.
Conventional A
Fan Heat D
Several levels can be used at the same
time for baking. The recommended
positions are:
1 tray = 1st runner from the bottom
2 trays = 1st and 3rd runners from the
bottom
3 trays = 1st , 2nd and, 4th runners
from the bottom
If baking on three levels place tins
on the grill pan on the 1st runner
position and on baking trays on the
other runner levels.
Remember to remove the roasting
filter from in front of the fan opening.
Otherwise baking times would be
longer and results uneven.
With Fan Heat D, approx. 20 °C lower
baking temperatures are needed than
with the Conventional A setting.
The following baking tins give an evenly
browned result: Dark metal, aluminium
or enamel tins with a matt finish are
preferable. Heat resistant glass dishes
can also be used.
Avoid bright, shiny metal tins. These
reflect heat which means that the heat
does not penetrate to the food
effectively and will result in uneven or
poor browning. In some cases the
cakes might not cook properly. Place
the tin or dish directly on the non-tip
rack in the oven. Use one shelf position
only.
39
Baking
Intensive baking F
Remember to remove the roasting
filter from in front of the fan opening.
Otherwise baking times would be
longer and results uneven.
this method is particularly useful for:
– dishes that require a moist topping
and crisp base like pizza and quiche
lorraine, or where the base has not
been pre-baked.
Place the tin or dish on the baking tray
on the 1st runner from the bottom only.
40
Conventional A
Only one shelf should be used for this
function. If more than one shelf position
is needed use Fan Heat instead.
This function is particularly good for
rich fruit cakes, pastries and breads
where a fairly long cooking time is
required and a deep colour and good
rise are needed.
It is usually necessary to pre-heat the
oven when using this method.
Place tins on the rack on runner level 2
or 3 so that the food is centrally
positioned in the oven.

Tips on baking
See the Baking Chart and the
Cookbook supplied with this oven
for suggestions of temperatures,
runner heights and times.
Place cakes in rectangular tins with
the longer side across the width of the
oven for optimum heat distribution and
even results.
When baking cakes with fresh fruit
toppings and tall sponge cakes place
the tin in the grill pan to catch any
spillages and keep the oven cleaner.
When baking anything with a high salt
content (such as pretzels) they must
be placed on baking parchment. High
concentrations of salt can damage
PerfectClean surfaces.
Frozen food
When baking deep frozen products
such as cakes, pizza and baguettes,
use the lowest temperature quoted on
the manufacturer's packaging. Place
such items on baking paper directly on
the wire rack or in the pizza pan (extra
accessory). Placing them on the baking
tray or in the grill pan can cause the
metal to distort. This distortion would
increase with subsequent use.
Deep frozen foods such as oven chips
or potato croquettes can be cooked
on the baking tray or in the grill pan.
Place these types of frozen foods on
baking parchment and select the
lowest temperature quoted on the
manufacturer's packaging.
Eating food which has been cooked
correctly is important for good health.
Only bake cakes, pizza, chips etc
until they are golden brown. Do not
allow them to become dark brown.
To achieve even results without
over-browning the food
– always select the lowest
temperature given in the
recipe/cooking instructions on the
packaging. Do not set a temperature
higher than that recommended.
Increasing the temperature may
reduce the cooking time, but will lead
to uneven browning, and
unsatisfactory cooking results.
– Check if the food is cooked at the
end of the shortest time quoted.
To check if a cake is ready, insert a
wooden skewer into the centre.
It is ready if the skewer comes out
clean, without dough or crumbs
sticking to it.
The cooling fan will continue for a while
after switching the oven off.
Always remove all accessories, trays
and racks which are not being used
when using the oven to get the best
results and to keep cleaning of the
trays to a minimum.

Roasting
– Conventional A
Browning only occurs towards the end
of the roasting time. Remove the lid
about halfway through the roasting time
if a more intensive browning effect is
desired.
Roasting in a covered pot
Open roasting
We recommend the following settings
for roasting in the oven:
– Auto Roast E
Auto roast E:
When roasting on the rack or in an
open tin make sure the roasting filter
is fitted in front of the fan in the back
of the oven before starting.
Use shelf position 1 for roasting.
– This ensures that sufficient stock
remains for making gravy.
– The oven stays cleaner, too.
Roasting pots with a lid made from
earthenware, cast iron, ovenproof china
or glass and roasting foil are all
suitable. Make sure any lids and
handles are heat-resistant.
Season the meat and place in the pot.
Add some knobs of butter or margarine
or a little oil or cooking fat. Add about
1
/8 litre of water when roasting a big
lean joint of meat (2-3 kg) or roasting
poultry with a high fat content.
Place the covered pot on the rack into a
cold oven.
Exception:
Pre-heat the oven to the temperature
suggested when roasting beef and
beef fillet.
44
Exception: With conventional A use
runner level 2 for poultry or a cut of
meat or fish up to 1kg.
The "Auto roast E" system uses an
approximately 20 °C lower roasting
temperature than the "Conventional"
heating system.
When roasting on the rack place the
rack and anti-splash tray over the grill
pan.
Season the meat and place in the grill
pan.
Roasting
Calculating the roasting time
The traditional British method is to allow
15 to 20 minutes to the lb, according to
type of meat, plus approx. 20 minutes,
adjusting length of time as roasting
proceeds, to obtain the required result.
Temperature
See the Roasting chart for suggested
temperatures.
Do not select a higher temperature than
that advised. The meat will become
brown, but will not be cooked properly
inside.
Do not roast deep frozen meat. Meat
should be thoroughly defrosted
before roasting.
After the roasting process is finished
^ Take the roast out of the oven, wrap
in aluminium foil and leave to stand
for about 10 minutes.
This helps retain juices when the
meat is carved.
The cooling fan will continue for a while
after switching off the oven.

See the cookbook supplied with your oven for further details.
46
Grilling
Pre-heat the grill for at least 5
minutes with the oven door closed.
Grilling with the oven door shut
saves energy and minimises
cooking smells.
For grilling thin cuts and for browning
food. The inner part of the upper
heating element acts as the grill.
Grill 2 n
If you grill with the door open the hot
air will escape from the oven and not
get cooled by the cooling fan.
Control elements on the oven could
get hot. Danger of burning!
The grill is thermostatically
controlled, and at times during
grilling the element will not glow red.
This is normal.
Put the roasting filter in front of the
fan grille in the back of the oven
when using this setting.
The oven has three grill settings:
Grill 1 m
For grilling large quantities of thin cuts
and for browning food in large dishes.
The whole of the grill element is
switched on. The inner part glows red.
The outer part stays darker than the
inner part, but creates sufficient radiant
heat for grilling.
Fan Grill N
For grilling larger items, e.g. rolled
meat, poultry.
Preparing food for grilling
Clean, wipe and season with pepper
and herbs. Do not season meat with
salt before grilling as this draws the
juices out.
Add a little oil if necessary. Other fats
quickly become black or cause the
food to smoke.
47
Grilling
Clean flat fish and slices of fish in the
normal way. To enhance the taste add a
little salt or squeeze a little lemon juice
over the fish.
Grilling on the rack
Temperature
For thin cuts of meat
(e. g. chops or steak) . . . . . . . . . 275 °C
For grilling larger items,
(e. g. rolled meat, poultry) . . . . . 240 °C
See the grill chart for more information.
To grill thicker pieces of food more
gradually after an initial high
temperature, continue grilling at a lower
temperature setting to allow the food to
cook through to the centre.
Grilling time
^ Assemble the rack on the grill pan
and use the anti-splash tray if you
have one (see "Optional
accessories").
– Flat pieces of fish and meat usually
need 5 – 6 minutes per side
depending on their texture.
– Use the Auto roast function for
thicker cuts.
^ Place the food on the rack.
^ Select the required grill setting.
Tips on grilling
^ Set the temperature.
It is best to grill food of a similar
thickness at the same time so that the
grilling time for each item does not vary
too greatly.
^ Pre-heat the grill for at least 5
minutes with the door shut before
grilling.
^ Place the grill pan under the grill and
shut the door.
For thin cuts use
runner level 4 or 5
For thickers cuts use
runner level 3 or 4
^ Most items should be turned half way
through cooking.
48
One way of finding out how far through
a piece of meat has been cooked is to
press down on it with a spoon:
– If there is very little resistance to the
pressure of the spoon, it is still red on
the inside ("rare").
– If there is some resistance the inside
will be pink ("medium").
– If there is great resistance, it is
throughly cooked through ("well
done").

Defrosting
You can also use the oven for
defrosting:
^ Turn the programme selector to the
"Defrost G" position.
Select a maximum temperature of 50 °C.
For defrosting meat and delicate food
we recommend defrosting at room
temperature, i.e. without selecting an
oven temperature.
Please note the following
– Where possible remove the
packaging and put the food to be
defrosted on a baking tray or into a
dish.
– All meat and poultry should be fully
defrosted before cooking. Do not use
the liquids from defrosting.
– When defrosting poultry put it on the
rack over the grill pan to catch the
defrosted liquid, so that the meat is
not lying in this liquid.
It is particularly important to observe
food hygiene rules when defrosting
poultry. Do not use the liquid from
the defrosted poultry. Pour it away,
and wash the tray, the sink and your
hands. Danger of salmonella!
– Fish does not need to be fully
defrosted before cooking.
Defrost so that the surface is
sufficiently thawed to take herbs and
seasoning.
50
Defrosting times
The time needed for defrosting
depends on the type and weight of the
food, and at what temperature it was
deep frozen. The following chart is for
guidance only.
Chicken, 800 g . . . . . . . . 90 – 120 mins.
Meat, 500 g . . . . . . . . . . . 60 – 90 mins.
Meat, 1,000 g . . . . . . . . . 90 – 120 mins.
Sausages, 500 g . . . . . . . 30 – 50 mins.
Fish, 1,000 g. . . . . . . . . . . 60 – 90 mins.
Strawberries, 300 g . . . . . 30 – 40 mins.
Cake, 500 g . . . . . . . . . . . 20 – 30 mins.
Bread, 500 g . . . . . . . . . . 30 – 40 mins.
Do not refreeze food once it has
been thawed.
Cleaning and care
Appliance front and control
panel
^ All external surfaces and controls can
be cleaned using warm water with a
little washing up liquid applied with a
soft sponge or cloth.
^ Wipe the surfaces dry using a soft
cloth.
E-Cloth
A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available from
the Miele UK Spare Parts Department,
Part number 98013530, which is
suitable for cleaning surfaces such as
stainless steel, glass, plastic and
chrome without the use of chemicals. It
can be washed 300 times.
To prevent the risk of scratches and
damage to the surface structure of
glass or stainless steel fronted
appliances pay particular attention to
the following cleaning instructions.
Glass fronted appliances
The appliance front and controls are
susceptible to scratches and abrasion.
Avoid:
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents,
– oven sprays.
each use.
This will help prevent grease or other
deposits adhering to surfaces and
becoming difficult to remove.
Stainless steel fronted
appliances
The appliance front and controls are
susceptible to scratches and abrasion.
Please observe the cleaning instructions for
– stainless steel surfaces,
– stainless steel coloured controls
Stainless steel surfaces
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using a proprietary non-abrasive
cleaning agent designed specifically
for use on stainless steel, or with the
Miele E-Cloth.
Avoid:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids or chlorides,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents.
To help prevent re-soiling, a proprietary
conditioning agent for stainless steel
can also be used.
Apply sparingly with an even pressure
following the direction of the "grain".
Clean the door handle and the control
elements regularly, preferably after
51
Cleaning and care
Stainless steel coloured controls
The controls may suffer
discolouration or damage if soiling is
left on them for too long.
Remove any soiling straight away.
Accessories
Do not leave accessories in the oven
when they are not in use.
Avoid:
Racks and side supports
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids or chlorides,
The stainless steel surfaces of these
have been treated with PerfectClean
enamel.
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaners,
– oven sprays.
If you are unsure about a particular
product or need further advice please
contact your nearest Miele Sales
office. See back page for address.
52
They should be cleaned in the same
way as other surfaces coated with
PerfectClean. See "PerfectClean".
Roasting filter
Clean in a solution of hot water and a
little washing up liquid or in the
dishwasher.
Note: some dishwasher detergents may
cause the surface of the metal filter to
discolour. This discolouration will not
affect the functioning of the filter in any
way.
Cleaning and care
PerfectClean
Before using for the first time remove
any stickers from PerfectClean
surfaces.
The enamelled surfaces of the oven
interior, baking tray, grill pan, rack and
side supports have been treated with a
new type of enamelling called
"PerfectClean".
This surface has very good anti-stick
properties which is much easier to keep
clean than conventional oven enamel, if
cleaned regularly.
Food can be taken off it more easily
and soiling from baking and roasting is
easier to remove.
The following notes on cleaning and
care should ensure that the anti-stick
and easy clean properties of
PerfectClean last for many years.
PerfectClean surfaces can be treated
as you would treat glass. If you are
unsure whether a particular cleaning
product is suitable for PerfectClean
consider whether you could clean a
window pane with the product without
damaging it.
Food can be sliced or cut up on the
PerfectClean surface in the same way
as on a baking tray with conventional
enamel.
Allow the oven and any accessories
to cool down before cleaning.
Danger of burning!
Normal soiling
Clean as soon as possible after each
use with a dishcloth, soft sponge (e.g.
the Vileda sponge as supplied with the
oven) or a soft nylon brush, and a
solution of hot water and a little washing
up liquid. The longer soiling is left the
harder it may become to remove.
Stubborn soiling
Stubborn soiling e.g. from roasting may
need to be soaked first with a damp
sponge to loosen it and if necessary a
scraper suitable for glass surfaces can
be used to remove it.
After cleaning rinse thoroughly with
clean water. The water must run off the
surface easily. Any residual cleaning
agents will hinder this effect.
Using oven sprays on very stubborn
soiling
Some oven cleaners contain strong
alkalines and / or abrasive
materials. Because the enamel is
designed to be easily cleaned the
use of these cleaners is not
recommended.
However if you still cannot get the
surface clean, an oven cleaner can
be used for a couple of minutes only.
Do not attempt to use on a hot oven
or accessories. Allow the
PerfectClean surfaces to cool down
to room temperature before applying
oven sprays!
53
Cleaning and care
Remove the catalytic back panel,
side liners (if fitted) and roof panel
before using oven sprays. The
chemicals used in oven sprays will
damage catalytic enamel rendering
it ineffective.
Apply a spray oven cleaner to the
soiled areas. Leave to take effect for a
couple of minutes only!
If necessary use a soft sponge (e.g. the
Vileda sponge as supplied with the
oven), soft nylon brush or a scraper
suitable for glass surfaces to loosen the
soiling.
Repeat the process if necessary.
After cleaning rinse thoroughly with
clean water and then dry thoroughly.
Important
The following cause lasting damage
to the surface structure and reduce
the anti-stick effect and must not be
used on PerfectClean surfaces:
– abrasive cleaning agents
– wire wool or metal scourers
– pot scourers
– oven cleaning pads
– sponges and cloths which have
previously been used with
abrasive cleaning agents.
– oven spray must not be used in a
hot oven or left on for too long.
– items coated with PerfectClean
enamelling must not be cleaned
in a dishwasher.
Note
For optimum performance of the
PerfectClean enamel it is important to
clean the oven and accessories after
each use.
Soiling such as spilt juices and cake
mixtures are best removed whilst the
oven or tray is still warm. Exercise
caution, make sure the oven is not hot danger of burning!
The surfaces will become harder to
clean and the anti-stick properties
will deteriorate if soiling is not
removed after each use and allowed
to build-up. In extreme cases
cleaning may even become
impossible.
Spilt fruit juices may cause lasting
discolouration of the surfaces and
roasting can cause matt areas to
appear. Clean these following the
instructions given above and do not try
and use force to remove them! This
discolouration is permanent but will not
affect the efficiency of the enamel.
When baking items with a high salt
content (e.g. continental pretzels) place
them on baking parchment in the
baking tray or grill pan. Sodium
deposits can cause lasting
discolouration to PerfectClean
surfaces.
54
Cleaning and care
Catalytic enamel surfaces
The back panel, the roof liner and
side liners (if fitted) are coated with
catalytic enamel.
Catalytic enamel has very good
self-cleaning properties.
During fan operated cooking,
circulating air in the oven deposits oil
and fat splashes predominantly on the
back panel of the oven.
When this catalytic enamel is heated to
temperatures above 200 °C, oil and
grease deposits are removed
automatically. The higher the
temperature the more effective the
process.
The oven and accessories should be
cleaned after each use. Otherwise
further baking and roasting will cause
the deposits to bake on even harder
and cleaning may become difficult and
in extreme cases impossible.
Cleaning catalytic enamel surfaces
by hand
Allow the oven to cool down before
cleaning. Danger of burning!
^ The catalytic enamelled back panel,
side liners and roof liner should be
cleaned using a solution of hot water
with a little washing up liquid applied
with a soft nylon brush.
Do not use abrasive cleaning
agents, hard brushes, scouring
pads or cloths, steel wool, knives or
other abrasive materials and do not
use oven spray on catalytic enamel
as the chemicals used in oven
sprays will damage catalytic
enamel, rendering it ineffective.
If using oven sprays on PerfectClean
oven surfaces, the catalytic back
panel, side liners (if fitted) and roof
liner must first be removed from the
oven.
Note that deposits of spices, syrups
and similar substances are not
removed by this process. These should
be removed while fresh by hand with a
mild solution of hot water and washing
up liquid applied with a soft brush.
55
Cleaning and care
Cleaning catalytic enamel surfaces
using high temperatures
To clean using high temperatures:
If, after manual cleaning, the oven is
still heavily soiled heating it to a high
temperature will help remove soiling
caused by oil and grease splashes
from the catalytic surfaces.
^ Select Fan Heat D.
Before cleaning the catalytic panels
using high temperatures, make sure
that all PerfectClean surfaces have
been cleaned as previously
described. Otherwise, the high
temperatures can cause deposits on
PerfectClean surfaces to become
baked on and impossible to remove.
^ Take all accessories out of the oven.
^ Select the highest temperature
setting.
Run the oven for approx. 1 hour. The
length of time will depend on the level
of soiling.
Any remaining soiling will gradually
disappear with each subsequent use of
the oven at high temperatures.
The timer can also be used to set the
finish time (see "Switching off
automatically").
Should the catalytic coating on the
back panel, side liners or the roof
liner become ineffective through
improper use or heavy soiling, a
replacement can be obtained from
your Miele dealer or the Miele Spare
Parts dept.
56
Cleaning and care
Cooking compartment
^ Open the door fully.
To make cleaning easier you can
– remove the oven door,
– dismantle the oven door,
– take out the runners,
– lower the top heating element,
– and take out the back panel, side
liners (if fitted) and roof liner.
To remove the oven door
The oven door is connected to the oven
by hinges.
^ To release the locking clamps on the
hinges turn them upwards as far as
they will go until they are at an angle.
See illustration.
^ Then lift the door upwards as far as it
will go.
Do not attempt to take the door off
the hinge guides when it is in a
horizontal position. The guides will
close and damage the appliance.
There is also a danger of injury.
Before removing the door the locking
clamps on both hinges have to be
released.
57
Cleaning and care
To dismantle the oven door
The oven door has seals on all sides to
protect it.
In the rare event that condensate has
worked its way in between the glass
panes, the door can be dismantled in
order to clean in between the panes.
Do not use scouring agents, hard
sponges or brushes to clean the
glass panes. These could damage
the surface.
Do not use an oven spray. This
would damage the surface of the
aluminium surrounds.
^ Always remove the oven door before
dismantling it.
^ Hold the door securely at both sides
and lift upwards off the hinge guides.
Do not lift the door off by the handle.
The handle could break.
Make sure that you lift the door off
equally on both sides.
58
^ Place the door on a protective
surface (e.g. on a table cloth) to
prevent it getting scratched.
The door handle should line up with
the edge of the table. Make sure the
glass lies flat and does not get
broken during cleaning.
Cleaning and care
Depending on model the oven door is
fitted with two or three glass panes.
On oven doors with three panes the
middle pane can also be taken out.
^ Press the pins near the hinge guides
on both sides of the door in (1) to
release the inner glass pane from its
retainers.
The inner pane will automatically lift
upwards.
Lift up the inner glass pane (2) and
release it from the aluminium guides
on the outer pane.
The aluminium guides on the outer
and inner glass panes are bonded
to the glass and cannot be removed.
^ Lift this pane up slightly before
removing it.
^ Clean each pane individually
being extremely careful to avoid the
risk of breakage.
^ Put the door back together again.
59
Cleaning and care
^ When replacing the inner pane make
sure that the aluminium guide and
handle face upwards. The words
"Miele CleanGlas" will then be legible.
^ Refit the middle pane (depending on
model).
See detail on illustration.
– The panes have a different coating
on each side.
The printed figure must be legible.
This ensures that the side with a heat
reflective coating faces into the oven
compartment.
– The pane must sit evenly on the seal
and not on the screw heads in the
aluminium guides.
60
If the seals on the inner pane have
loosened during cleaning you will
have to push them back into the
guides making sure that the profiled
part of the seal faces inwards (see
detail on illustration).
Cleaning and care
After lowering it into position the inner
pane has to be pushed back into its
retainers.
This is easier to do if you push one side
into its retainer first and then do the
other side.
^ Hook the inner glass pane into the
aluminium guides on the outer pane
and lower it into position.
Make sure when lowering the inner
pane that it does not come out of its
fixings.
^ Finally using the ball of your hand
press down on the aluminium trim on
the inner pane to make sure it goes
back into position. You will hear a
very clear "click" when doing this.
The retaining pins are pushed back
out when you do this.
Before putting the door back on
make sure that the inner pane is
sitting correctly in its retainers and
that it cannot come loose and get
damaged.
61
Cleaning and care
To refit the door
^ Open the door fully.
^ Flip both locking clamps back up to
lock them. Turn them as far as they
will go into a horizontal position.
Make sure that the notches on the
locking clamps hook into the slots on
the door as illustrated.
^ Hold the door securely at both sides
and carefully fit it back onto the hinge
guides.
Make sure that the door goes back
on straight.
62
It is essential that the locking clamps
lock securely when the door is
re-fitted after cleaning. Otherwise
the hinges could work loose from the
hinges and this could result in
damage to the door.
Cleaning and care
To remove the runners
Make sure the oven heating
elements are switched off and cool.

and take it out.
The oven must not be used without
the back panel fitted. This could
cause considerable injury.
Reassemble in the reverse order,
carefully ensuring all parts are correctly
in place.
64
^ Lift the side liners up slightly before
removing them.
Reassemble in the reverse order,
carefully ensuring all parts are correctly

Problem solving
Installation, maintenance and repairs
should only be carried out by a
suitably qualified and competent
person in accordance with local and
national safety regulations.
Repairs and other work by
unqualified persons could be
dangerous and the manufacturer will
not be held responsible.
Some minor problems can be corrected
without contacting the Miele Service
Department.
The showroom display programme has
now been deactivated. The oven can
now be used again as normal.
. . . the heating works, but not the
oven lighting.
The halogen lamp needs replacing.
To change the lamp:
^ Disconnect the appliance from the
electricity supply.
Switch off and unplug at the socket,
or remove the fuse, or switch off at
the isolator as appropriate.
What to do if . . .
^ Remove the runners and side liners
(if fitted).
. . . the oven does not heat up.
^ Cover the floor of the oven with a
towel to protect the enamelling just in
case the lamp cover is dropped.
Check whether,
^ the system lock has been activated.
^ the mains fuse has blown. Contact a
qualified electrician or the Miele Service Department.
^ MES_ appears briefly in the display
when the programme selector is
turned to the light H position.
The oven is set to the showroom
display programme. In this setting you
can select a programme as normal but
the oven will not heat up.
To deactivate the showroom display
programme:
– Turn the programme selector to H.
MES_ will appear in the display.
– Call up the a symbol.
– Turn the (–/+) input dial
anti-clockwise until four horizontal
bars appear in the display.
66
^ Use the lever to release the lamp
cover from its frame.
Problem solving
The glass cover is held in position by
two metal brackets which are secured
to the reflector.
Do not push the metal brackets to
the sides, as this would damage
both the brackets and the reflector.
It might also make it difficult to push
the glass cover back into its frame
again.
^ Pull the glass cover out of the rear
metal brackets.
On some models the halogen lamp
cover will come out together with the
glass cover.
^ Pull the defective halogen lamp out
and replace it with a new one,
making sure it goes into its socket
horizontally.
When purchasing a new lamp it is a
good idea to take the old one with
you to make sure you get the correct
replacement (12 V, 20 W, heat
resistant to 300 °C, G4 fitting,
Osram, Type 64428).
Do not touch the surface directly
when changing the lamp as grease
particles from your fingers will
adhere to the surface and damage
the lamp. Please follow the
manufacturer's instructions.
67
Problem solving
. . . no noise is heard when the oven
door is opened during operation.
This is not a fault.
If the door is opened during operation,
the door contact switch causes the
oven heating, and the fan if on "Fan"
setting, to be switched off.
. . . a noise can be heard after baking,
roasting or grilling.
^ Push the glass cover back into the
metal brackets with the cut out edge
towards the rear.
This is not a fault.
The cooling fan continues to run for a
while after the oven has been switched
off to prevent any humidity building up
in the oven, on the control panel or in
the oven housing unit. When the
temperature has fallen sufficiently the
fan switches off automatically.
The temperature will fall faster when the
oven door is opened partially or fully.
. . . cakes and biscuits are not cooked
after following the times given in the
chart.
Check whether,
^ the correct temperature was set.
^ Push the glass cover into its frame at
the front.
^ Replace the runners (and side liners
if fitted).
Reassemble in the reverse order,
carefully ensuring all parts are correctly
in place.
68
^ there has been a change to the
recipe. The addition of more liquid or
more eggs makes a moister mix
which would need longer to cook.
^ the roasting filter was left in front of
the fan when baking with Fan Heat D
or Intensive baking F. In this case
baking times might be lengthened by
10 to 15 minutes.
Problem solving
. . . cakes or biscuits are unevenly
browned.
There will always be a slight
unevenness. Product information
sheets give a percentage result for
standard browning tests. These refer to
results for one tray.
. . . there has been a power cut and
"12:00" and the triangle V are
flashing underneath the m symbol.
All pre-set times are deleted as a result
of the power failure.
^ Enter the time of day again, and any
other pre-set data.
If browning is very uneven, check
when baking with Fan Heat D:
. . . "F" and a number appear in the
display.
– whether the temperature was set too
high,
This combination indicates a fault.
– whether the roasting filter was in
place,
– whether the correct runner height
was used.
when baking with Conventional A:
– the colour and composition of the
baking tins being used. Light
coloured, shiny, or thin walled tins
are less suitable,
– whether the correct runner height
was used.
. . . spots like rust appear on catalytic
surfaces.
– "F55": the oven has automatically
switched itself off during use. This is
a safety feature to protect the oven if
it has been operating for an
exceedingly long period. The length
of time depends on the oven function
selected.
The oven can be used again immediately by simply turning the oven
function selector to "0" and then
entering the process again.
– Any other fault messages:
If any other fault message appears in
the display, this will need a service
visit.
When roasting on the rack, the
circulating air sometimes picks up
spices, which are then deposited on
the oven interior walls. Such residues
are not removed by catalytic cleaning,
they are best removed while fresh with
a mild solution of hot water and
washing up liquid and a soft brush.

Extra accessories
The following accessories may come as
standard with some models. They are
also available at extra cost from your
Dealer or the Miele Spare Parts Dept.
Anti-splash tray
Telescopic baking carriage
The telescopic baking carriage with
5 levels of runners can be drawn right
out of the oven. This gives a good
overview of all the cooking in progress.
The anti-splash tray should be placed
in the deep-sided grill pan when grilling
or roasting. The juices from the food
being cooked collect under the
anti-splash tray. This prevents them
from spitting and making the oven dirty.
The juices can then be used for making
gravy and sauces.
Handle
Telescopic runners
The telescopic runners provide three
shelf levels.
Each shelf level can be drawn right out
of the oven individually to give a good
overview of cooking in progress
The handle makes it easier to take baking
trays, grill pan and rack out of the oven,
or to put them into it. The two prongs at
the top go inside the pan, rack or tray
and the U-shaped supports underneath.
71
Extra accessories
Pizza pan
Gourmet oven dish
This circular pan is suitable for cooking
pizzas, flat cakes made with yeast or
whisked mixtures, sweet and savoury
tarts, baked desserts, and can also be
used for deep frozen cakes and pizzas.
The gourmet oven dish can be placed
in the oven directly on the runners. It
has non-tip safety notches like the
baking tray to prevent it being pulled
out too far.
It has a special protective anti-stick
coating.
Baking stone
It is available either 22 or 35 cm deep.
A lid is available separately.
Catalytic side liners
