Warning and Safety instructions
Warning and Safety instructions
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
the appliance for the first time, read
the operating instructions carefully.
They contain important notes on
safety, on the operation and care of
the appliance. This way you will
avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the appliance.
Do not let children access the appliance or its controls. Supervise its
use by the elderly or infirm.
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 improper use of the appliance.
10
Technical safety
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.
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.
This appliance must only be operated as a built-in appliance. This is
necessary to ensure that all electrical
components are shielded.
Never open the casing of the appliance.
Tampering with electrical connections or
components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous to the user and can
cause operational faults.
Warning and Safety instructions
Installation work and repairs may
only be carried out by suitably
qualified and competent persons to ensure safety. Repairs and other work by
unqualified persons could be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be
held responsible for unauthorized work.
The appliance is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
when:
– it is switched off at the wall socket
– or the mains fuse is withdrawn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).
The oven is designed to be built
into a tall unit. If you wish to install
it in a base unit, the stainless steel rail
above the control panel must be replaced by a sealing strip. The sealing
strip offers additional protection from
any liquids that might spill down from
the worktop, and can be purchased
from the Miele Spare Parts dept.
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. The hob and also external parts
of the oven such as the door glass,
vents and control panel can become
quite hot.
For cookers with a hob turn handles inwards, and ensure children cannot pull
pans down on themselves.
Oven
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 and the guard plate
become very hot, and there is a danger
of being burnt.
Wait until the grill element has
cooled down before lowering it for
cleaning, to avoid the danger of burning.
Do not use force to pull it down as
this can cause the element to
break.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
Use only a Miele roast probe (core
temperature probe) as supplied
with this appliance. If a replacement is
necessary it can be obtained from the
Miele Spare Parts dept or a Miele specialist dealer.
After using do not remove the roast
probe until the oven interior is cool.
When not in use do not leave the
roast probe in the oven, especially
when grilling. High grill temperatures
could damage it.
Do not use plastic containers.
They may melt at high temperatures. The oven could be damaged.
Do not heat up unopened tins or
jars of food in the oven, as 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 the open oven
door, or place heavy items on it.
This could damage the appliance. Take
care in the region of the hinges. The
oven door can support a maximum
load of 10 kg.
12
Cover any food which is left in the
oven to be kept hot. This avoids
the food drying out. It also prevents
steam condensing and possibly leading to moisture damage in the oven.
If food is left in the oven after cooking, e.g. to take advantage of the
residual heat, select the lowest temperature available. Leave the function
selector switch at the position set.
Do not switch the appliance off until the
food has been removed.
Otherwise there may be a build-up of
condensation which could adversely affect the oven interior, and externally the
control panel, the worktop surface or
surrounding kitchen furniture.
Put any deep frozen products such
as pizza on baking paper on the
rack. Do not place them on the baking
tray or grill pan. This could cause the
metal to distort to such an extent that it
might be difficult to remove the
tray/pan from the oven. The distortion
would increase with subsequent use.
Warning and Safety instructions
General notes
Do not leave the appliance unattended when cooking with oils and
fats as these can be a fire hazard if
allowed to overheat.
Do not use the oven to heat up the
room. Due to the high temperatures radiated, objects left near the
oven or hob could catch fire.
When using kitchen appliances
connected to sockets near the
oven, ensure that the cable cannot
come in contact with the hot cooking
zones or get trapped in a hot oven
door, which could melt the cable insulation and be dangerous.
Danger of electric shock.
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. Therefore
when cooking or reheating foods, e.g.
poultry, it is particularly 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, and by observing a
sufficiently long standing time, which
should be added to the time needed
for cooking, reheating or defrosting.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
Under no circumstances use a
steam cleaner to clean this appliance. Pressurised steam could give
rise to a short circuit.
Using alcohol in your recipes:
often alcoholic drinks such as rum,
cognac, wine etc are used when preparing dishes and oven-cooking them.
The high temperatures can cause the
alcohol to separate out.
Please take note that under adverse circumstances the alcohol can catch light
on the hot elements.
In countries 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 might be caused
by cockroaches or other vermin will not
be covered by the appliance guarantee.
14
Disposal of your old machine
Before discarding an old machine
switch off and disconnect it from
the power supply. This should be done
by a competent person. Cut off and
render any plug useless.
Cut off the cable directly behind the
machine to prevent misuse.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by noncompliance with safety instructions.

Description of the oven systems
Description of the oven systems
Fan Heat D
Auto Roast E
This system works by the circulation of
heated air.
This setting offers the "Fan Heat" with
"Auto Roast". The oven heats initially to
a high temperature which seals the
meat to keep it succulent and tasty.
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.
The oven does not usually need to be
pre-heated as the heated air reaches
the food straight away.
Exception: Pre-heat the oven when
roasting meat or baking bread made
with dark flour.
Using the fan heating system you can
bake and roast on different levels at the
same time.
The heated air used by this system is
of a lower temperature than that used
with the "Conventional" heating system.
If a temperature of at least 140°C is selected, the "rapid heat-up" feature is activated.
The "Top Heat" heating element is also
switched on automatically so that the
appliance heats up more rapidly. This
saves energy.
As soon as the high temperature has
been reached, the oven temperature is
automatically returned to the preselected setting.
If a temperature of at least 140°C is selected, the "rapid heat-up" feature is activated.
The "Top Heat" heating element is also
switched on automatically so that the
appliance heats up more rapidly. This
saves energy.
Conventional heating A
With this conventional method of heating, radiant heat is directed on the food
from above and below.
Pre-heating the oven is only necessary
when
– baking biscuits or cakes with a
short cooking time (up to approx.
30 minutes),
– baking some types of doughs,
– baking bread made with dark flour,
– roasting a joint of meat.
If a temperature of at least 150°C is selected, the "rapid heat-up" feature is activated.
The fan and its heating element are
also switched on automatically so that
the appliance heats up more rapidly.
This saves energy.
17
Description of the oven systems
Defrost G
Grill 1 ,
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.
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.
Intensive bake F
Grill 2 J
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.
The entire upper heating element acts
as the grill.
Fan grill I
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.

Rapid heat-up
To switch off "rapid heat-up"
With the "Fan Heat D", "Auto RoastE"
and "Conventional A" heating systems,
"rapid heat-up" is switched on automatically if the temperature required is
– at least 140°C with "Fan Heat D"
and "Auto Roast E".
– at least 150°C with "Conventional A".
For some dishes it may be desirable to
switch off "rapid heat-up" (biscuits,
small cakes).
The rotating "C" beside the required
temperature shows that "rapid heat-up"
is switched on.
During the heat-up phase, the "Fan
Heat" heating element and the fan as
well as the "Top Heat" heating element
come on simultaneously to heat up the
oven as rapidly as possible. This saves
energy.
As soon as the required temperature is
reached, the extra heating element is
switched off.
Once the required temperature is
reached, the extra heating element
does not switch on again even when
the temperature is later increased.
Exception: if the temperature is increased before the required temperature is reached, "rapid heat-up" remains
switched on.
Select the oven system and temperature for the cooking process.
As soon as the actual temperature appears in the display, "rapid heat-up"
can be switched off.
Press the "–" button and hold until
the "C" in the display stops rotating.
"Rapid heat-up" is now switched off for
this particular cooking process.

Baking
Baking
The following settings are recommended for baking:
– Fan Heat D
– Intensive Bake F
– Conventional A
Baking tins
For the best baking results make sure
that you choose baking tins or dishes
of 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 thinwalled and bright, non-reflective metal moulds.
– "Conventional A"
The following baking tins give an
evenly browned result:
Dark metal or enamel tins with a matt
finish are preferable. Heat resistant
glass or thermoplastic dishes can be
used.
Avoid thin-walled and bright, non-reflective metal moulds.
These will give uneven browning results.
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 5th runners
from the bottom
When baking moist biscuits, cakes
or bread, do not bake on more than
two levels.
Remember to remove the roasting
(grease) filter from in front of the fan
opening. Otherwise the baking time
will be longer.
With the "Fan D" setting lower baking
temperatures are needed than with the
"Conventional A" setting. See the baking charts.
Intensive baking F
Remember to remove the roasting
(grease) filter from in front of the fan
opening. Otherwise the baking time
will be longer.
This method of heating is particularly
useful for:
– dishes that require a moist topping
and crisp base, such as pizzas and
quiche lorraine, or where the base
has not been pre-baked.
Put the cake in on the 1st runner from
the bottom. If the base is overcooked,
use a higher level runner next time.
40
Baking
Conventional A
Avoid thin-walled and bright, non-reflective metal moulds. These will
give uneven browning results.
Pre-heat the oven only for:
– cakes / biscuits with a very short baking time (up to approx. 30 minutes),
– victoria sponge and similar mixtures,
– bread made with dark flour.
Select runner height 1 or 2.
General notes
Deep-frozen products such as pizzas
should be placed on baking paper on
the rack.
Use the deeper roasting tray for moist
fruit cakes and multi-layer cakes, to
minimize splashes in the oven.
The Baking Chart gives suggestions for temperature, runner height
and timing.
For even browning – in general select the middle temperature.
Increasing the temperature and reducing the time can have an
adverse effect on even browning.
– Select the runner height according
to the recipe and the setting chosen.
– Just before the end of baking time
test to see if the cake is done.
Insert a metal or wooden skewer into
the centre.
If it comes out clean, without dough
or crumbs sticking to it, the cake is
ready.
Place oblong tins in the oven as shown
in the illustration.

Roasting
Roasting
We recommend the following settings
for roasting in the oven:
– Auto Roast E
– Conventional A
See also notes on use of Roast probe
(for models where this is applicable).
Auto Roast:
When roasting on the rack or in an
open dish, always remember to fit
the roasting filter in front of the fan
in the back of the oven before starting.
We recommend roasting in a covered
pot L:
– This ensures that sufficient stock remains for making gravy.
– The oven stays cleaner, too.
Place the covered pot on the rack into
the cold oven.
Exception: Pre-heat the oven to the temperature recommended in the recipe
when cooking roast beef.
Use shelf position 1 for roasting.
Exception: With "Conventional A" for
roasting poultry up to a weight of 1 kg,
roast beef, fillet or fish use shelf position 2.
When using "Auto Roast E" a temperature of approx. 40°C lower can be
used for roasting than with the "Conventional A" setting.
The bigger the quantity to be roasted,
the lower the temperature.
When roasting more than 3 kg select a
temperature about 10°C lower than the
one given in the "Roasting" chart.
The roasting process will take a little
longer, but the meat will be cooked
evenly and the exterior will become
crisp.
For roasting directly on the rack K
the temperature needs to be about
20°C lower than for roasting in a
covered pot L.
The following containers are suitable:
Roasting tins, heat-resistant glass,
roasting foil, earthenware.
Make sure that the pot and lid have
heat-resistant handles.
44
For roasting on the rack always slide in
the rack and the roasting tin together.
The roasting time will depend on the
type of meat, the size and thickness of
the cut.
Roasting
Calculating 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.
Useful hints
Roasting in a covered pot L
Alternatively, multiply the height of the
joint by the time per cm for the type of
meat, as in the chart.
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.

15-18 mins.
12-15 mins.
8-10 mins.
Example:
Beef roast, 8 cm high
8 x 15 mins. per cm = 120 mins. roasting time
Please note:
Do not select a roasting temperature
which is higher than that recommended. The meat will become brown,
but will not be cooked properly.
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.
Place a little water in the tray. Add a
little fat or oil to very lean meat or place
a few strips of bacon on the top. Do not
add too much liquid to the tray during
cooking as this will hinder the browning
process.
Roasting poultry
For a crisp finish, baste the poultry ten
minutes before the end of cooking time
with slightly salted water.
Roasting deep frozen meat
Deep frozen meat should be defrosted
first.
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.
45
Roasting with the Roast Probe
Roasting with the Roast Probe
Depending on model a roast probe
(core temperature probe) may be supplied.
Using the roast probe enables the
roasting process to be monitored simply and reliably.
The tip of the probe measures the core
temperature at the centre of the meat
continuously.
When the pre-selected core temperature is reached, the oven heating is
automatically switched off.
The tip of the probe must reach the central area of the meat.
When roasting poultry the best place to
insert the probe is the thickest part between thigh and body.
Ensure that it does not touch a bone,
and that it is not inserted into a fatty
piece of meat. If fat or bone come into
contact with the probe, this can lead to
the oven being switched off too early.
The roast probe can be used with the
following functions:
– Auto Roast E
– Conventional A
– Fan Heat D
– Fan Grill I
Using the roast probe for best effect:
Prepare the meat in the usual manner, and put it into the oven, (in a pot
or on the rack).
Roasting bags or aluminium foil may
also be used, but only when left open
at the ends. Insert the probe through
the foil or bag.
Insert the probe into the middle of
the meat.
46
When roasting with the probe it is a
good idea to take the frame off the pullout carriage. The telescopic carriage
can then be pulled right out.
Roasting with the Roast Probe
In order to do this:
Press the "e" button.
Enter the desired temperature using
the "+" or "–" buttons.
When the light in the "+/–" button goes out
Insert the plug of the roast probe into
the socket until you feel it engage.
– the oven heating switches on.
Turn the function selector to the required oven function.
The following light up:
– the recommended oven temperature in the oven display,
– the indicator light for the "+/–" button.
The recommended oven temperature
can be altered if required with the
"+/–" button.
Next, a food core temperature of
60°C appears in the oven display, and
the indicator light for the "+/–" button is
on.
If necessary this food core temperature can be altered with the "+/–" button according to the type of food being
cooked, (see "Oven roasting chart" for
suitable choice of temperatures) and
can be altered within a range of 20°C
to 99°C.
– the actual core temperature appears in the oven display. N.B. The
lowest temperature that can be displayed is 20°C, so this will also be
shown until the roast probe registers
20°C.
47
Roasting with the Roast Probe
Time left display
If, when the residual time is displayed:
– the oven or core temperature is altered,
– or a different oven function is chosen,
this will cancel all the residual time information, and the actual temperature will
reappear.
If the oven door is held open for some
time, the residual time will be recalculated.
Cooking time is completed automatically.
After a certain time the estimated residual time (i.e. the time left to run), appears in the oven display. The actual
core temperature is no longer visible
and cannot be called up.
The residual time is calculated from the
oven temperature selected, the required core temperature and the pattern of the increasing core temperature.
The residual time figure first shown is
an estimate. As the cooking process
continues the figure is continuously revised, and a more accurate revised figure shown.
48
Shortly before the end of cooking time
the oven heating switches off.
The Energy-save function (as described under "Oven - use") comes into
action. The time left continues to be
shown in the display. If the " p" button is
pressed, "EC" appears.
If the oven temperature is altered or the
core temperature increased, the oven
heating will switch on again.
Roasting with the Roast Probe
End of cooking time
Please note:
As soon as the chosen core temperature has been reached
– an audible tone sounds for approx.
5 seconds, and
– the "e" symbol flashes.
The timer can be used to delay the
start of the cooking process.
If the audible tone is not cancelled
early, it will continue to sound every
5 minutes for an hour as a reminder
that the process has finished.
The audible tone can be cancelled by:
– pressing the "e" button.
If the food is not sufficiently cooked,
a new core temperature can be entered.
– turning the oven function selector to
"0".
Any temperatures entered will also
be cancelled.
When finished, cover the meat with
aluminium foil and allow to stand for
approx. 10 minutes. During this time
the core temperature rises another
5 – 10°C.
If the temperature probe is left in the
food at the end of the cooking process,
the oven display will show the core temperature first rising and then sinking.
Insert the probe in a different place and
start again:
– if the cut of meat was too large (3 kg
or more) for the probe to be inserted
right to the centre.
– if the meat is not sufficiently roasted
when the set temperature is reached.
The time taken to roast meat by temperature using the probe is similar to
that when cooking by time.

Defrosting
Defrosting
We recommend defrosting at room temperature, i.e. without selecting an oven
temperature.
However, an oven temperature of up to
50°C can be selected.
– Where possible remove the packaging and put the food to be defrosted on a baking tray or into a
dish.
Do not refreeze food once it has
thawed.
The time needed for defrosting depends on the type and weight of the
food, and at what temperature it was
deep frozen.
– 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, one level higher than a tray put
in 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.
N.B. Put the tray back in the oven if
roasting on the rack.
– Fish does not need to be fully defrosted before cooking. Defrost so
that the surface is sufficiently soft to
take herbs and seasoning.
51
Casseroles
Casseroles
When choosing which oven level to
use, take into account the size of the
casserole dish with its lid.
Casseroles
The following oven settings are recommended:
– Fan Heat D
– Conventional A
The following dishes are suitable for
this type of slower cooking:
covered pots made of ovenproof glass
and china, and earthenware pots,
which could also be used as serving
dishes. They should have heat-resistant
handles and knobs.
Please note:
Cover dishes which are to be cooked
in their own juice and/or steam, eg duchesse potatoes or vegetables, so that
they do not dry out. If there is no lid use
aluminium foil or damp cooking parchment.
Cook without a lid when a crusty finish or topping is required, eg for meat
or au gratin dishes.
Useful hint
One dish can be placed on top of the
other. Invert the lid of the bottom dish.
Put dishes to be browned at the top.
Put the rack in at the 1st runner
height from the bottom, and place
the prepared casserole with the food
for braising or stewing on this.
Poaching
Select the oven setting and the temperature.
Bottling
Fan Heat D . . . . . . . . . . . . . 170-190°C

Cooking times
Consult your cook book.
Fish or fruit can be poached in the
oven in a covered dish.
Bottling should only be undertaken by
an experienced cook who has received
proper training in this method of preserving fruit and vegetables, and understands the implications of the chemical
reactions involved.
Instructions for bottling in this oven are
available from the Miele Home Economist.
52
Grilling
Grilling
Pre-heat the grill for approx.
5 minutes with the oven door shut.
Grill 2 J
Grilling with the oven door shut
saves energy and minimizes cooking smells.
The oven has three grill settings:
Grill 1 ,
For grilling large quantities of thin cuts
and for browning food in large shaped
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 I
For grilling small quantities of thin cuts
and for browning small dishes of food.
The inner part of the grill element is
switched on and glows red.
Always put the roasting filter in front
of the fan grille in the back of the
oven when using this setting.
For grilling larger items, for example,
poultry, rolled meat.
The roast probe can also be used to
monitor the temperature. See the appropriate section
The roast probe cannot be used at
the same time as the rotisserie. The
cable would wind round the rotisserie and be damaged.
53
Grilling
Preparing food for grilling
Clean, wipe and season. Do not salt
slices of meat beforehand as this detracts from the taste.
Add a little oil if necessary. Other fats
quickly become black or cause the
food to smoke. A little butter can be
added to chicken if desired.
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.
Insert the grill pan at the appropriate
level for the height of the food to be
grilled:
thin cuts =
level 3 or 4
thicker cuts =
level 1 or 2
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.
Most items should be turned half way
through cooking.
Grilling on the rack
Grilling on the spit
(depending on model)
For grilling thicker items such as
stuffed meat, poultry, kebabs.
Assemble the grill pan, anti-splash
tray (if available) and rack as shown.
Place the food on the rack.
Select the method of grilling.
Assemble the rotisserie as shown.
54
Grilling
Grilling time
Flat pieces of fish and meat usually
need about 5-6 minutes a side depending on their texture.
Thicker pieces need longer.
Two special accessories for rotisserie
grilling, a meat and poultry clamp, and
a kebab grilling device are available
from your Miele dealer or the Miele
Spare Parts Department.
Select the method of grilling.
Put the grill pan holding the assembled rotisserie in the oven, using the
1st runner from the bottom.
The spit fits into the motor slot at the
back of the oven.
Temperature
Food to be grilled
temperature
Thin cuts
such as chops, steak
275°C
Thicker cuts
such as chicken, kebabs
240°C
With rolled meat allow approx.
10 minutes per cm diameter.
Useful grilling hint
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
thoroughly cooked through ("well
done").
To grill thicker pieces of food more
gradually, select an initial high temperature, and then continue grilling at a
lower temperature setting to allow the
food to cook through to the centre.

Cleaning and care
Cleaning and care
Appliance front and control
panel
Wipe down the appliance front, the control panel and, on the H 248, the decorative trims with a mild detergent or a
solution of warm water with a little washing up liquid. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Glass front
Do not use a scouring agent, as this
would scratch the glass front.
For ovens with a white finish we recommend after each use wiping:
– the oven door handle and
– the control panel
with a damp cloth and some washing
up liquid. This will avoid spillages
being burnt on and becoming impossible to remove.
Stainless steel front
Never use cleaners containing
sand, soda or scouring agents,
These will leave scratches.
Use an appropriate non-scouring stainless steel cleaner. Apply with an even
pressure. Wipe over with a damp cloth
and rub dry with a soft cloth.
Accessories
Roast probe, telescopic frame (if
fitted)
Wipe with a damp cloth.
Do not put the roast probe or the
baking carriage telescopic runners
into water, and do not put them in
the dishwasher.
Runners
Wash in hot water with washing up
liquid, or clean with a stainless steel
cleaner.
Baking tray, roasting/grill pan, rack,
spit and frame:
wash and dry after each use.
Remove stubborn residues that do not
wash away
– from stainless steel:
with a stainless steel cleaner.
– from enamel:
Soften residues by soaking with hot
water, then brushing with a soft nylon
brush or sponge.
Roasting filter
Clean in washing up liquid and hot
water, or in the dishwasher.
57
Cleaning and care
Cleaning and care
Oven interior
The oven interior surfaces have been
designed to make cleaning easier.
The oven cavity and door interior are
finished in "Clean-Enamel". The rear
panel which protects the fan is more
subject to oil and fat splashes and has
a catalytic enamel coating.
With some models, side panels with
catalytic coating are fitted and the removable guard plate above the grill
has a catalytic coating. With this arrangement most of the interior "CleanEnamel" is protected, except for the
floor and the door, which should be
cleaned after each use.
"Clean-Enamel"
This is a specially hardened enamel
with an extremely smooth surface.
Most baking and roasting residues can
be easily removed using a sponge
cloth, washing up liquid and hot water.
If something bakes on harder, it can be
loosened with a shielded blade
scraper, and cleaned off with a sponge
and a suitable proprietary non-abrasive
cream cleaner. It is easier to remove
splashes of fruit or cake mixture from
the oven and racks while they are still
warm.
Fruit juice may cause lasting discoloration.
Dull patches may remain permanently
in the oven tray after roasting or grilling.
58
If an oven spray is used on the
"Clean-Enamel", follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully.
Important: Oven spray must not
come into contact with catalytic enamel. It can damage the enamel.
Catalytic Enamel
Because circulating air in the oven deposits oil and fat splashes predominantly on the rear wall, this is coated in
catalytic enamel.
With some models, side panels with
catalytic coating are also fitted, and the
removable guard plate above the grill
has a catalytic coating.
When this catalytic enamel is heated to
temperatures above 200°C, oil and
grease deposits are removed, except
for deposits of spices, syrups and similar substances. The higher the temperature the more effective the process.
Do not use an oven spray on the
catalytic enamel. Do not wash the
panels in a dishwasher. Any mechanical handling would damage the
catalytic enamel.
Do not wait too long between cleaning
sessions as further baking and roasting
will cause oil and grease deposits to
burn on even harder.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning each type of enamel
Allow the oven to cool down before
cleaning. Danger of burning.
Clean the oven floor ("Clean-Enamel) after each use.
The oven should also be cleaned
regularly, preferably after each use.
Waiting too long will make cleaning
very difficult and in extreme cases
not very effective.
Never use hard brushes, scouring
cloths, steel wool, knives or other
abrasive materials. The enamel
would be damaged.
Remove the accessories and the runners from the oven. (See following
pages for release).
Clean the "Clean-Enamel" surfaces.
A mild proprietary cleaner, without
sand or scouring agents, may be
used.
Normally the catalytic liners can be
left in place and wiped over. Use a
solution of warm water and a little
washing up liquid and a soft brush to
clean catalytic surfaces.
The catalytic liners should rarely
need to be removed. See following
pages for procedure.
In addition, heating the oven to a high
temperature will help remove soiling on
the catalytic surfaces which has been
caused by grease and oil splashes.
Turn the oven function selector to
"Fan heat D".
Turn the temperature selector to the
highest setting.
Let the oven operate for about one
hour. The length of time will depend on
the degree of soiling. It is a good idea
to set the finish time for the process
using the timer. This way you will not forget to switch the oven off at the end.
Every time the oven is used at high temperatures any remaining soiling will
gradually disappear.
Should the catalytic coating on the
back panel or any other catalytic
panels fitted become ineffective
through improper use or heavy soiling, for example, a replacement can
be obtained from your Miele dealer
or Miele Spare Parts dept.
Do not use oven spray or abrasive
cleaning agents on the catalytic surfaces. Do not wash the panels in a
dishwasher. Any mechanical handling would damage the catalytic enamel.
59

Correcting minor faults
Correcting minor faults
Installation, maintenance and repairs to the electrical components
of this appliance should only be carried out by a fully competent person
to ensure safety. Repairs and other
work by unqualified persons could
be dangerous. The manufacturer
cannot be held responsible for unauthorized work.
Some minor problems however can be
dealt with as follows:
What to do if . . .
Slide the relevant flap upwards.
. . . The oven does not heat up.
Check whether,
the selector switch is set to the function required, and the temperature
control is set at the correct temperature.
the operating lock is activated.
the main fuse has blown. Contact a
qualified electrician or the Miele Service Department.
. . . The heating elements in the oven
function, but not the light.
The halogen lights are faulty. Change
as follows:
Turn off the electricity supply to the
oven. Switch off at the isolator, or
withdraw the mains fuse.
There is a slide flap in each side trim to
the oven.
66
Pull out the metal strip.
Pull out the halogen lamp:
12 V, 20 W,
heat resistant up to 300°C, G4
socket, Osram, Type 64428.
Fit the bulb and reassemble in the
reverse order, carefully ensuring all
parts are in place.
Correcting minor faults
. . . 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.
This is not a fault.
The cooling fan continues to run for a
short time 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.
. . . the cakes and biscuits are not
cooked after following the times
given in the chart.
Check whether,
the correct temperature was set.
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 had been left in
place in front of the fan when cooking with "Fan heat D" or "Intensive
Bake F" or was in place for "Auto
Roast E". In this case baking times
might be lengthened by 10 to 15
minutes.
. . . The browning effect is uneven.
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.
If the item being baked is browning
very unevenly, check:
– when baking with "Fan Heat D":
whether the temperature was set too
high,
whether the roasting filter was in
place.
– when baking with the "Conventional
setting A":
the colour and composition of the
baking tins being used. Light coloured, shiny, or thin walled tins are
less suitable.
67
Correcting minor faults
. . . spots like rust appear on the interior catalytic walls.
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
washing up liquid and a soft brush.
. . . The display light does not come
on when a hob control is switched
on (depending on the model).
The lamp needs changing.
The lamp must be changed by Miele
customer service.
. . . "F" and a number appear in the
oven display field.
This combination indicates a fault
When "F3" appears the core temperature (roast) probe has a fault.
Remove the probe from its socket
and the message will disappear.
When "F6" appears 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 timing is different depending on
the oven setting selected.
The oven can be used again immediately by simply turning the oven function selector to "0" and then entering
the process again.
– If "F9" appears in the display, this
may mean that the maximum temperature of the appliance has been
exceeded.
The appliance automatically switches
itself off temporarily. As soon as the
temperature has fallen to an acceptable level the fault message disappears. The appliance switches itself
on again automatically.
If this fault message occurs repeatedly, please inform the Service dept.
Please quote the fault message.
– If any other fault message appears
in the display, this will need a service
visit. Please quote the fault message.
68
Correcting minor faults
. . . the timer display is dark when
the appliance is first switched on.
This is not a fault.
If the time of day has been switched
off, the display stays dark.
If the "f" and ")" buttons are
pressed at the same time "12:00" appears in the display field.
. . . the time of day cannot be entered
after a power cut.
This is not a fault.
Check whether the oven function selector was still set to one of the functions.
If it was, turn it to "0".
The time of day can now be entered.
. . . The energy-save function is not
activated when cooking with the
roast probe or the timer.
This is not a fault.
Certain conditions must be fulfilled before the system controlling the energysave function comes into operation.
Sometimes these do not occur.
. . . The residual time indicator is not
activated when cooking with the
roast probe.
This is not a fault.
Certain conditions must be fulfilled before the system controlling residual time
comes into operation. Sometimes these
do not occur.
