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.
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
offered for recycling.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation!
Disposal of your old appliance
Old appliances contain materials which
can be reclaimed or recycled. Please
contact your dealer, your waste collection centre or scrap merchant about
potential recycling schemes.
Make sure that the pipework is not
damaged whilst moving an old appliance. This is to ensure that the refrigerant and oil in the compressor cannot
leak into the environment. It is important
that they are disposed of in a safe
manner by authorised persons only.
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 complies with all
relevant legal safety requirements.
Improper use of the appliance can,
however, present a risk of both personal injury and material damage.
Before installation and before using
for the first time, read the operating
instructions carefully. They contain
important notes on safety, the 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
This appliance is intended for
domestic use only for the cool
storage of foodstuffs.
Any other usage is not supported by
the manufacturer and could be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held
responsible for damage caused by
improper use of the appliance.
This appliance contains the coolant
Isobutane (R600a), a natural gas
which is very environment friendly.
Although it is flammable, it does not
damage the ozone layer and does not
increase the green house effect. The
use of this environment friendly coolant
has, however, led to a slight increase in
the noise level of the appliance. In
addition to the noise of the compressor
you might be able to hear the coolant
flowing around the system. This is
unavoidable, but does not have any
adverse effect on the performance of
the appliance.
Care must be taken during transportation and setting up of the appliance that
no parts of the cooling system are
damaged. Leaking coolant can
damage the eyes.
In the event of any damage:
– avoid open fires
and anything which creates a spark,
– disconnect from the mains,
– air the room in which the appliance is
located for several minutes and
– contact the Service Department.
for advice.
The more refrigerant 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
room space is required. The amount of
coolant in the appliance is stated on the
data plate inside the appliance.
6
Warning and safety instructions
Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply, make sure that
the rating on the data plate corresponds to the voltage and frequency of
the household supply.
This data must correspond in order to
avoid risk of damage to the appliance.
If in any doubt, consult a qualified
electrician
The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when
continuity is complete between the
appliance and an effective earthing
system which complies with local and
national regulations. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
tested by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held
responsible for the consequences of an
inadequate earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
Safe operation of the appliance is
only assured if it has been installed
and connected in accordance with
these operating and installation instructions.
This equipment 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.
Installation work, maintenance and
repairs may only be carried out by
suitably qualified and competent
persons.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous and the
manufacturer will not be held responsible.
Ensure current is not supplied to
the appliance while maintenance
or repair work is being carried out.
The appliance is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
when:
– the plug has been withdrawn.
Do not pull on the cable, only on the
plug.
– the mains fuse is withdrawn.
– or the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance.
(e.g. danger of overheating).
Use
Never store explosive materials in
the appliance. Switching on
thermostats and the interior light may
produce sparks which could present a
fire hazard.
If storing alcohol with a high
percentage proof, make sure it is
tightly closed and stored upright.
Danger of explosion.
Observe the "use by" dates given
on food to avoid the risk of food
poisoning.
Storage times will depend on several
factors including the freshness and
quality of the food as well as the
temperature at which it is stored. Follow
the instructions given on food manufacturer’s packaging on storage conditions
required as well as the "use by" date.
7
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 could contain
substances which could damage the
plastic parts and which may cause the
build up of gases and pose a danger to
health.
Do not use any grease or oil on the
door seals. These cause the seals
to become porous in the course of time.
Do not block the ventilation gaps in
the plinth or the top of the appliance housing unit as this would impair
the efficiency of the appliance, increase
the electricity consumption and could
cause damage to the appliance.
The appliance is designed for use
within certain climate ranges
(ambient temperatures). It must not be
used in ranges for which it is not
designed. The climate range for your
appliance is stated on the data plate
inside the appliance. Installing it in a
room with too low an ambient temperature will lead to the appliance switching
off for longer periods so that it cannot
maintain the required temperature.
Never use steam cleaning
apparatus to defrost or clean the
appliance. The steam could attack the
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation
by cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
appliance and its surroundings in a
clean condition at all times. Any
damage which may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the appliance guarantee.
Disposal of old appliances
Before disposing of an old appliance first make the door latch or
lock unusable.
This way you will prevent children from
accidentally locking themselves in and
endangering their lives.
Before disposing of an old
appliance, unplug it and render the
plug useless. Cut off the cable directly
behind the appliance and at the plug to
prevent misuse.
Be careful not to damage any part
of the pipework whilst awaiting
disposal, e.g. by
– puncturing the refrigerant channels
in the evaporator.
– bending any pipework.
– scratching the surface coating.
Splashes of refrigerant can damage the
eyes.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these safety
instructions.
8
Operation
Before using for the first time
^ Clean the inside of the appliance and
the accessories with luke warm water
and a little washing up liquid and
then dry using a soft cloth.
Switching on
Switching off for longer
periods of time
If the appliance is not going to be used
for a longer period of time, e.g. whilst
on holiday
^ switch the appliance off at the mains,
^ withdraw the plug (pull on the plug
and not the cable),
^ clean the appliance out and
^ leave the door ajar to air the appliance
^ Using a coin turn the On/Off dial in a
clockwise direction away from the "0"
position.
Forcing it beyond its range would
damage it. Turn it only as far as it will
go, then turn it back again.
If, during a long absence, the appliance is switched off but not cleaned
out and the door is left shut there is
a danger of mould and odours
building up inside the appliance.
An 8 will flash briefly in the temperature
display followed by a bar lighting up.
The appliance starts cooling. The
interior light will come on if the door is
opened.
Switching off
^ Using a coin turn the On/Off dial in an
anti-clockwise direction back to the
"0" position.
The temperature display goes out. The
cooling process and the interior light
are switched off.
9
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.
The temperature in the appliance will
rise:
– the more often the door is opened
and the longer it is kept open,
– if too much food is stored in it at
once,
– the warmer the food is which is being
put into it,
– the higher the ambient temperature
surrounding the appliance.
The appliance is designed for use in
specific ambient temperatures
(climate ranges). Do not use in
ambient temperatures for which it is
not designed.
. . . in the refrigerator
We recommend a temperature of 5 °C
in the middle of the refrigerator section.
Temperature selection
The temperature is set with the temperature dial.
^ Using a coin turn the temperature
dial in a clockwise direction to the
required setting.
Turn it only as far as it will go, then
turn it back again. Turning it beyond
its range would damage it.
The higher the setting, the lower the
temperature in the appliance.
With normal use a setting of between 2
and 3 is usually sufficient.
Temperature display
During normal operation the temperature display on the control panel shows
the temperature in the warmest part of
the appliance.
If the temperature in the appliance is
not within the range which can be
displayed, i.e. between 2 and 9 °C, only
a bar will show in the temperature
display.
Natural air circulation inside the
appliance will mean that there are areas
inside the appliance which will be
warmer or colder than the temperature
displayed. As long as dynamic cooling
has not been engaged this is quite
normal.
Make use of the different temperature
zones for storing your food correctly.
10
Super cool and dynamic cooling
Super cool
Dynamic cooling m
The Super cool function can be used to
rapidly reduce the temperature to
approx. 2 °C.
With dynamic cooling the temperature
inside the appliance is distributed to all
areas more evenly. All food stored in
the appliance will be chilled to about
the same degree. The temperature is
controlled as normal with the temperature dial.
Switching on the Super cool function
Super cool is particularly recommended for faster chilling of large loads
of fresh food or drink.
Dynamic cooling should be selected
when:
– the ambient temperature in the room
is high (above approx. 30 °C) and
– the room humidity level is high.
^ Press the Super cool button, the
Super cool indicator light will come
on.
Switching on dynamic cooling
The appliance works at full power to
lower the temperature in the appliance.
Switching off the Super cool function
The Super cool function switches itself
off automatically after approx. 6 hours.
The indicator light goes out and the
appliance continues running at normal
power.
To save energy the Super cool function
can be switched off once food and
drinks are sufficiently chilled.
^ Press the Super cool button. The
Super cool indicator light will go out.
The appliance continues running at
normal power.
^ Press the dynamic cooling button m.
The dynamic cooling indicator light
will come on.
Switching off dynamic cooling
When dynamic cooling is switched on
the appliance uses more energy. It
should therefore be switched off when
the room temperature is normal (below
30 °C) and when humidity levels are
normal.
^ Press the dynamic cooling button m.
The dynamic cooling indicator light
will go out.
11
Storing food
Natural air circulation gives rise to
different temperature zones inside the
appliance. Cold, heavy air sinks to the
lowest section of the appliance.
Make use of the different zones
when placing food in the appliance.
The coldest zones are against the
back wall and above the vegetable
containers. Use the area above the
vegetable containers for perishable
foods such as meat, sausage, fish etc.
The warmest zone is in the top section
of the door. Use this area for storing
butter and cheese.
Loading examples
^ When placing food in the appliance
load the top shelves first and work
your way down to the bottom starting
with baked goods, pre-cooked foods
and milk products and finishing with
meats, fish and sausages.
^ Use the vegetable containers for
storing vegetables, salad and fruit.
Not all fruit and vegetables should
be stored together in the same container as they give off natural gases
which affect the perishability of other
foods. (See section "Chilling and
storing food").
^ Fill the door shelves from the top to
the bottom.
Start with butter, cheese, small tins,
bottles and tubes in the upper
shelves, followed by large bottles,
juice containers and milk in the
bottom shelves.
Do not store cooking oil in the appliance door.
Traces of oil can cause stress
cracks to occur in the plastic
components in the door.
12
Adjusting the interior fittings
Moving the shelves
Adjusting door shelves
The shelves can be adjusted according
to the height of the food.
^ Push the door shelf upwards then
remove it by pulling it forwards.
^ Pull the shelves forward as far as
they will go then lift them upwards to
remove them.
^ Replace the door shelf at the
required position. Ensure that it is
securely pushed back into position.
^ With the rear barrier facing upwards
place the shelf at the required position.
The rear barrier must face upwards to
prevent food from touching the back
of the appliance and freezing to it.
Moving the bottle divider
The bottle divider can be moved to the
left or right to ensure that bottles are
held securely in position when the door
is opened and shut.
Split shelf
(depending on model)
In order to accommodate tall items in
the appliance one of the shelves is
divided. The front section can be taken
out to allow space for tall items standing on the shelf below.
13
Chilling and storing food
Important notes:
Use the different cooling zones for
storing food correctly. See the
section on loading examples.
– Food must not touch the back wall of
the appliance. Otherwise it may
freeze to the back wall.
– Do not store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products
containing combustible gas (e.g.
spray cans). Danger of explosion.
– If storing alcohol with a high percentage proof, make sure it is tightly
closed, and store upright.
– Hot food and drinks must be cooled
to room temperature before placing
them in the appliance.
– Store food covered or packaged.
This way you will prevent food smells
or tastes from affecting other foods
and prevent food from drying out.
Fruit and vegetables may, however,
be stored loose in the vegetable
containers.
– Do not store groceries too close to
each other. Space should be left
between individual items for air to
circulate.
– Do not keep the door open for too
long when putting food in and taking
it out of the appliance. This will help
save energy.
14
Food which should not be stored in a
refrigerator
Not all food is suitable for refrigeration.
These include:
– Fruit and vegetables such as
bananas, avocado pears, papaya,
passion fruit, aubergines
– Fruit which is not yet ripe
– Potatoes
Some types of vegetables give off a
natural gas which speeds up the rate at
which food perishes. Some fruit and
vegetables react strongly to this gas
and should not be stored together in
the vegetable containers.
Examples of fruit which produce a
large amount of this natural gas are:
Apples, passion fruit, apricots, pears,
nectarines, peaches, plums, avocado
pears, papayas and figs.
Examples of fruit and vegetables
which react strongly to the natural
gases given off by other types of fruit
and vegetables are:
Kiwis, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels
sprouts, mangos, honeydew melons,
apples, apricots, cucumbers, tomatoes,
bananas, avocado pears, pears,
nectarines and peaches.
Defrosting
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the appliance whilst it
is in use. These are automatically removed and defrosted by the appliance.
The condensate is drained away via a
channel and drain hole into an evaporation system at the back of the appliance.
Ensure that the condensate channel
and drain hole are never blocked so
that condensate can flow away without hindrance.
15
Cleaning and care
Never use cleaning agents containing abrasive substances such as
sand, soda, acids or chemical
solvents.
"Non-abrasive" cleaning agents are
also unsuitable as they can cause
matt areas to appear.
Door fronts should be cleaned using
a solution of warm water with mild
detergent applied with a soft cloth or
with a suitable cleaning agent for the
type of door panel fitted.
Make sure that no water can penetrate into the electronic unit or into
the light.
Do not let water get into the
drainage channel and drain hole
when cleaning.
Never use steam cleaning apparatus to defrost or clean the appliance.
The steam could attack the electrical
components and cause a short
circuit.
The data plate located inside the
appliance must not be removed. It
contains information which is required in the event of a service call.
Before cleaning
^ Switch the appliance off by turning
the On/Off dial to the "0" position.
^ Take any food out of the appliance
and store it in a cool place.
^ Take out any removable parts e.g.
shelves for cleaning.
16
Cleaning the interior and
accessories
Use lukewarm water with a little mild
detergent. Accessories and shelves
should all be hand washed. The butter
dish is, however, dishwasher safe.
^ Clean the appliance at least once a
month.
^ Clean the condensate channel and
drain hole frequently, so that condensate can drain away unhindered. Use
a straw or similar to clear the drain if
necessary.
^ Wipe the interior and accessories
with a damp cloth and dry with a soft
cloth. Leave the door open to air for a
short while.
E-Cloth
^ A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available
from the Miele UK Spare Parts
Department, Part Number 980 13530,
which is suitable for cleaning
surfaces such as stainless steel,
glass, plastic and chrome without the
use of chemicals.
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 appliance’s
energy consumption.
Cleaning and care
Door seal
Do not use any oils or grease on the
door seals as these will cause the
seals to deteriorate and become
porous with 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 appliance.
^ Switch the appliance on with the
On/Off dial.
^ Place food back in the appliance and
close the door.
