Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Disposal of your old machine
Electrical and electronic machines
often contain valuable materials. They
also 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 machine. Please do
not therefore dispose of it with your
household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection/recycling
centre, or contact your Dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.

11
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ A damaged coffee machine could be dangerous. Before building
in the machine, check it for any externally visible damage. Do not
use a damaged machine.
~ Before connecting the machine to the mains supply, make sure
the connection data (voltage and frequency) on the data plate
corresponds to the household supply. Consult a qualified electrician
if in any doubt.
~ The electrical safety of this machine can only be guaranteed if
correctly earthed. It is essential that this standard safety requirement
is met. If in any doubt, please have the electrical installation tested
by a qualified electrician.
~ Do not connect the machine to the mains electrical supply by a
multi-socket adapter or an extension lead. These are a fire hazard
and do not guarantee the required safety of the machine.
~ For safety reasons, this machine may only be used when it has
been built in.
~ If the coffee machine is to be built in above another appliance,
there must be a full-width, closed shelf between them.
~ The coffee machine must not be used in a non-stationary location
(e.g. on a ship).
~ Only use the coffee machine in rooms where the ambient
temperature is between +10 °C and +38 °C.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Ensure that there is sufficient ventilation around the coffee
machine. Otherwise condensation can build up and damage the
machine and / or the housing unit.
~ If the coffee machine is installed behind a kitchen furniture door,
it may only be used with the furniture door open. Do not close the
furniture door while the coffee machine is in use.
~ Repairs may only be carried out by a Miele authorised service
technician. Repairs and other work by unqualified persons can
cause considerable danger to users. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for unauthorised work.
~ While the appliance is under guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a Miele authorised service technician. Otherwise the
guarantee is invalidated.
~ Miele can only guarantee the safety of the machine when original
Miele replacement parts are used. Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original spare parts.
~ The machine must be disconnected from the electrical supply
during installation or repair work.
~ Do not open the outer casing of the machine. Tampering with
electrical connections or components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous to the user and can cause operational faults.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Only use genuine original Miele accessories with this appliance.
Using spare parts or accessories from other manufacturers will
invalidate the guarantee, and Miele cannot accept liability.
Correct use
, Caution. The central spout and the steam valve present a
danger of burning and scalding.
The liquids and steam dispensed are very hot.
Please note:
– Keep well away from the area underneath the central spout and
steam valve when hot liquids and steam are being dispensed.
– Do not touch hot components.
– The spouts can spray hot liquid or steam.
– Water in the drip tray can be very hot. Take care when emptying
it.
, Danger of injury.
Do not touch the brew unit when the machine is connected to the
electrical supply.
Do not clean the inside of the capsule plate opening.
, Never look directly at the lighting or use optical instruments to
look at it.
~ Clean the coffee machine and the cappuccinatore (milk frother)
thoroughly before using for the first time (See "Cleaning and care").
14
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Please note the following regarding water:
– Only use cold, fresh tap water to fill the water container. Warm or
hot water or other liquids could damage the machine.
– Change the water every day to prevent a build-up of bacteria.
– Do not use mineral water. Mineral water will cause serious
limescale deposits to build up in your machine and damage it.
– Do not use water from a reverse osmosis unit in this machine. This
would damage it.
~ Do not put anything other than Nespresso coffee capsules in the
capsule carousel. Other manufacturers' capsules etc. would
damage the machine.
~ The coffee capsules must be intact before use. Do not use coffee
capsules which are damaged, broken or dented. These could
become jammed in the machine and damage it.
~ Do not use milk with additives. Sugar additives will stick to the
milk pipework and damage the coffee machine and the
cappuccinatore.
~ If using animal milk, use only pasteurised milk.
~ Never place a drink with ignited alcohol under the central spout of
the coffee machine. The flames could ignite plastic components
and cause fire damage.
~ Do not swing from or hang anything on the machine front when it
is open as this could damage the machine.
15
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Please note the following with regard to cleaning the coffee
machine:
– Clean the coffee machine and the cappuccinatore daily (see
"Cleaning and care").
– Do not use a steam cleaner to clean the machine. Steam could
reach electrical components and cause a short circuit.
– Descale the coffee machine regularly using the appropriate
number of Miele descaling tablets for the water hardness level in
your area. Descale the machine more frequently in areas with very
hard water. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage
arising from insufficient descaling.
~ Do not use the coffee machine or the cappuccinatore for cleaning
other objects.
For machines with a stainless steel front:
~ Do not use sticky notes, transparent adhesive tape, masking tape
or other types of adhesive on stainless steel surfaces. These
damage the surface, causing it to lose its dirt repellent protective

Making drinks
Preparing hot milk, milk froth
and cappuccino
,Danger of burning and scalding
on the steam valve.
Steam and water produced are very
hot.
Do not place any part of your body
under the steam valve when it is
open.
Do not touch hot components.
The steam valve must engage in the
lower position in order to connect
properly with the cappuccinatore.
The cappucinatore must always be
assembled correctly with valve a
above the handle and spout b at the
side.
The valve has two settings:
If the steam valve was open, it will be
a while before steam is produced. In
Eco mode, particularly, the steam
system needs to heat up first. No
messages appear in the display
during milk preparation.
Notes on using the cappuccinatore
Do not use milk with additives.
Sugar additives will stick to the milk
pipework and damage the coffee
machine and the cappuccinatore.
Tip: For best results use cold milk
(below 13 °C).
This machine comes with a
cappuccinatore (milk frother) which
makes it easy to prepare hot milk, milk
froth and cappuccino.
Before using the cappuccinatore for
the first time, clean it thoroughly,
preferably in a dishwasher (see
"Cleaning and care").

Problem
Possible cause and remedy
Milk (steam) and
espresso / coffee
cannot be prepared
at the same time.
The energy-saving Eco mode is activated. In this mode, the
steam system is heated up for preparing hot milk or milk
froth. After preparation the steam system will cool down
again.
If you want to prepare milk without having to wait until the
steam system has heated up,
^ switch off "Eco mode" in the "Settings" menu.
If Eco mode is deactivated, the steam system will remain
heated and you can prepare drinks made with milk without
the need for heating up beforehand. However, with Eco
mode deactivated, the coffee machine will use
considerably more energy.

Electrical connection U.K., ZA, IRL
All electrical work should be carried out
by a suitably qualified and competent
person only, in strict accordance with
current national and local safety
regulations (BS 7671 in the UK).
Installation, repairs and other work by
unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot
be held liable for unauthorised work.
Ensure power is not supplied to the
machine until after installation work has
been carried out.
The voltage and frequency are given on
the data plate. Please ensure these
match the household mains supply. The
fuse rating is quoted on the plug.
Non-rewireable plugs BS 1363
The fuse cover must be refitted when
changing the fuse, and if the fuse cover
is lost, the plug must not be used until a
suitable replacement is obtained. The
colour of the correct replacement cover
is that of the coloured insert in the base
of the plug, or the colour that is
embossed in words on the base of the
plug (as applicable to the design of
plug fitted).
Replacement fuses should be ASTA
approved to BS 1362 and have the
correct rating. Replacement fuses and
fuse covers may be purchased from
your local electrical supplier.
The machine is supplied with a mains
cable with moulded plug for connection
to a 230 - 240 V mains supply.
Do not connect the machine to an
inverter such as those used with an
autonomous energy source e.g. Solar
power.
Connection should be made via a fused
plug and suitable switched socket
which is easily accessible after
installation.
When switched on peak loads in the
system can cause the safety switch off
mechanism to be triggered. This can
damage the electronic unit.
Do not connect via an extension lead.
The machine must not be used with
so-called Energy saving devices
either. These reduce the amount of
energy supplied to the machine
causing it to overheat.
For extra safety it is advisable to protect
the appliance with a suitable residual
current device (RCD). Contact a
qualified electrician for advice.
If the socket is not accessible after
installation (depending on country) an
additional means of disconnection must
be provided for all poles.

Installation
Building-in and combination options
This machine is designed to be builit into a tall unit
or in a wall unit.
72
Installation
It can also be combined with other
Miele built-in appliances. If the coffee
machine is to be built in above another
appliance, there must be a full-width,
closed shelf between them.
Ventilation
Ensure that the back of the coffee
machine is sufficiently ventilated, so
that steam and warm air can dissipate
freely.
Otherwise condensation can build up
and damage the machine or the
housing unit.
Installation
Before installation make sure that
there is no power supply to the
machine. This also applies should it
ever need to be taken out of its
housing unit.
The machine may only be used
when it has been built in. It can only
be used in ambient temperatures of
+15 °C to +38 °C .
You will need two allen keys (size 3
and 5) for installing the machine.
Tip: It is useful to have somewhere at
the height of the niche to place the
machine on. This makes electrical
connection easier.
^ Using the large allen key, unscrew all
four feet underneath the machine out
by approx. 2 mm.
The feet can be unscrewed by up to
approx. 10 mm.
If the furniture unit walls are 19 mm
thick you will need to drill four holes in
the sides for securing the machine.
To mark the position of these holes:
^ Align the machine in the niche. Screw
the side socket screws inside the
machine in a little so that they make
indents in the side walls, and then
unscrew them again.
^ Take the machine out of the niche
and drill ø 4.5 mm holes,
approx. 2 mm deep where you made
the indentations.
73
Installation
^ Connect the machine to the electrical
supply.
^ Push it all the way into the niche until
you feel resistance.
Ad usting the hinges
If the machine front becomes difficult to
open or close after installation you can
adjust the hinges to realign it:
Take care not to damage the
electrical connection, when pushing
the coffee machine into the the
niche.
^ Open the front of the machine, and
partially tighten the side socket
screws.
^ Turn screw a to align the front of the
machine so that it is flush with the
front of the housing unit.
^ Turn screw b to align the front of the
machine horizontally and vertically.
^ Carefully turn the lower socket
screws a to centre the machine in
the niche.
^ Tighten both upper socket screws b
by hand to secure the machine in the
unit. Do not overtighten them.
