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 of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation!
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure that they
are recycled.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your appliance.
Please do not therefore dispose of it
with your household waste.
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.
Take care not to damage the pipework
at the back of it before or during
transportation to an authorised
collection depot.
In this way, refrigerant in the pipework
and oil in the compressor will be
contained, and will not leak out into the
environment.

Use
Only open the doors when
necessary and for as short a time
as possible.
Frequent opening of the doors for
long periods will cause a loss of
coldness.
Store food in an organised way.
If food is not stored in an
organised way, searching for an
item will mean the door is open for
longer.
Allow hot food and drinks to cool
down before placing them in the
appliance.
Placing hot food in the appliance
will cause the compressor to run
for a long time, as the appliance
will have to work harder to lower
the temperature.
Store food covered or packaged.
The evaporation or condensation
of liquids will cause a loss of
coldness in the refrigerator.
Place frozen food in the
refrigerator to defrost.
Do not over-fill the appliance to
allow air to circulate.
Defrosting
Defrost the freezer compartment
when a layer of ice 0.5 cm thick
has built up.
A layer of ice hinders the cold
from reaching the frozen food, and
causes an increase in energy
consumption.

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.
Setting the temperature in the
refrigerator
Use the two buttons underneath the
temperature display to set the
temperature for the refrigerator.
Press the
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.

14
The correct temperature
If you have adjusted the temperature,
wait for approx. 6 hours if the
appliance is not very full and for
approx. 24 hours if the appliance is
full, before checking the temperature
display, as it will take this long for the
display to give an accurate reading. If,
after this time, the temperature is still
too high or too low, you will need to
adjust it again.
Temperature display brightness
The appliance is supplied with the
brightness of the temperature display
set as low as possible. However, if the
door is opened, a setting changed or if
the alarm is sounding, the temperature
display will appear much brighter for
approx. 1 minute.
The level of brightness can be
adjusted:
Temperature range
The temperature can be adjusted from:
2 °C to 9 °C.

Super cool and Dynamic cooling
Super cool
Dynamic cooling m
The Super cool function can be used to
rapidly reduce the temperature in the
refrigerator section to its lowest setting
(depending on the room temperature).
When the Dynamic cooling function is
not switched on, the natural circulation
of air in the appliance will cause
different temperature zones in the
refrigerator as the cold, heavy air will
sink to the lowest section of the
appliance. You should bear this in mind
when placing food in the appliance
(see "Using the refrigerator efficiently").
However, if you are placing a large
amount of food in the refrigerator at any
one time, it is a good idea to switch on
Dynamic cooling. This way you can
distribute the temperature inside the
appliance to all areas more evenly so
that all the food will be chilled to about
the same degree.
The temperature is set as normal with
the temperature control.
Switching on Super cool
Super cool is particularly
recommended for faster chilling of
large amounts of fresh food or drink.
^ Press the Super cool button. The
Super cool indicator light will come
on.
The appliance will then work at full
power to lower the temperature.
Switching off Super cool
The Super cool function will switch itself
off automatically after approx. 6 hours.
The indicator light will go out and the
appliance will run at normal power
again.
Dynamic cooling should also be
selected when:
– the ambient temperature in the room
is high (above approx. 30 °C), and
– the room humidity level is high.
Switching on Dynamic cooling
To save energy, the Super cool function

Using the refrigerator efficiently
Different storage zones
Due to the natural circulation of the air
in the appliance, there are different
temperature zones in the refrigerator.
Cold, heavy air sinks to the lowest
section of the appliance. Make use of
the different zones when placing food
in the appliance.
This appliance has Dynamic
cooling, which helps to keep an
even temperature when the fan is
running. When Dynamic cooling is
switched on, the difference between
the various zones is less
pronounced.
Warmest area
The warmest area is in the top section
of the door. Use this for storing butter
and cheese.
Coldest area
The coldest area in a refrigerator is
directly above the vegetable
containers.
Use this for all delicate and highly
perishable food, e.g.
– fish, meat, poultry,
– pre-packed vegetables and other
fresh food with a label stating it
should be kept at a temperature of
approx. 4 °C.
Do not store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products
containing propellants (e.g. spray
cans). Danger of explosion.
If storing alcohol with a high
percentage proof, make sure it is
tightly closed, and store upright.
Do not store cooking oil in the
refrigerator door. Traces of oil can
cause stress cracks to occur in the
plastic components in the door.
Food must not touch the back wall of
the refrigerator, as it may freeze to
the back wall.
To allow air to circulate efficiently,
do not pack food too closely
together in the refrigerator. Do not
cover the fan in the rear wall of the
refrigerator, as this is essential for
keeping the appliance cool.
– sausage products, ready meals,
– dishes or baked goods containing
eggs or cream,
– fresh dough, cake mixtures, pizza or
quiche dough,
– soft cheese and other dairy
products,
19
Using the refrigerator efficiently
Food which should not be
stored in a refrigerator
Not all food is suitable for refrigeration,
as some food is sensitive to cold.
Cucumbers, for example, become
glassy, aubergines bitter and potatoes
sweet. Tomatoes and oranges lose their
aroma, and the peel on citrus fruit
hardens.
Food which should not be stored in a
refrigerator includes:
– pineapple, pomegranate, bananas,
avocado, mangos, papaya, passion
fruit, citrus fruit
– fruit which is not yet ripe
– aubergines/egg plant, cucumbers,
potatoes, peppers/capsicum,
tomatoes, courgettes,
– some hard cheeses, e.g. Parmesan
When shopping for food
The freshness of food when first placed
in the appliance is an important factor
in determining how long it stays fresh,
and how long it can be kept in the
refrigerator. Time out of the refrigerator,
e.g. during transportation, should be
kept to a minimum. For example, do not
allow food to stay in a hot car for too
long. Once food has started to
deteriorate, this process cannot be
reversed. As little as two hours outside
the refrigerator can cause food to start
deteriorating.
20
Storing food correctly
Food should generally be stored
covered or packaged. This will prevent
food smells from affecting other foods,
food from drying out, and also any
cross-contamination of bacteria. The
growth of bacteria, such as salmonella,
can be avoided by setting the correct
temperature and maintaining good
standards of hygiene.
Fruit and vegetables
Fruit and vegetables may be stored
loose in the vegetable containers.
Please be aware that not all types of
fruit and vegetables are suitable for
storing in the same container. Aromas
and flavours can transfer from one type
of food to another (e.g. carrots absorb
the smell and flavour of onions very
easily). Some food also gives off a
natural gas (ethylene) which speeds up
the rate at which other food perishes.
– Examples of fruit and vegetables
which produce a large amount of
this natural gas are:
Apples, apricots, pears, nectarines,
peaches, plums, avocado, figs,
blueberries, melons and beans.
Using the refrigerator efficiently
– 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, pears, nectarines and
peaches.
Example: Broccoli should not be
stored with apples, as apples
produce a large amount of natural
gas to which broccoli is very
sensitive. The result is a shorter than
expected storage time for the
broccoli.
Meat
Meat should be stored unwrapped.
(Undo wrappings slightly to leave meat
loosely covered, and leave containers
open). This permits air to circulate
around the meat, allowing the surface
to dry slightly, which helps prevent the
growth of bacteria. To prevent the risk
of bacterial cross-contamination and
meat deteriorating, do not let one type
of meat come into direct contact with
another type.
Unpacked meat and vegetables
Unpackaged meat and vegetables
should be stored separately. To avoid
any microbiological crosscontamination, these foods may only be
stored together if they are wrapped.
Protein rich foods
Please note that foods rich in protein
deteriorate faster than others.
Shellfish, for example, deteriorates
faster than fish, and fish deteriorates
faster than meat.
21
Adjusting the interior fittings
Moving the shelves
To move the split shelf:
The shelves can be adjusted according
to the height of the food.
^ Take both halves of the split glass
shelf out,
^ Raise the shelf, pull it forwards
slightly until the notch at the side is in
line with the shelf support. It can then
be raised or lowered to the required
level.
The raised edge at the back must face
upwards to prevent food from touching
the back of the appliance and freezing
to it.
Stoppers prevent the shelves from
being dislodged by mistake.
Split shelf
In order to accommodate tall items in
the appliance, one of the shelves is
divided. The front section can be
pushed under the rear section.
^ Push the rear half of the glass shelf
up slightly from below.
^ At the same time, pull the front half of
the glass shelf forwards slightly and
then push it carefully under the rear
half.
22
^ fit the two brackets onto the supports
on either side at the required height,
^ and push the glass shelves in one
after the other. The shelf with the
raised edge must be at the back.
Fruit and vegetable containers
on roller insert
(depending on model)
The fruit and vegetable containers are
pushed in and out on rollers, and can
be completely removed if necessary.
The roller inserts can also be removed
for cleaning.
Adjusting the interior fittings
Fruit and vegetable containers
on telescopic runners
Adjusting the condiment
tray/bottle shelf

^ place the shallow tray b in the
stainless steel frame, and use the
deep tray as a lid a.
You can lift the universal container,
including contents, out of the frame and
take it to the table.
24
Automatic defrost
The refrigerator defrosts automatically.
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the refrigerator whilst it
is in use. You do not need to remove
this, as it will defrost and evaporate
automatically with the warmth
generated 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 kept clean and
are never blocked so that
condensate can flow away without
hindrance.
25
Cleaning and care
E-Cloth
Never use cleaning agents
containing abrasive substances
such as sand, soda, acids, chlorides
or chemical solvents. "Non-abrasive"
cleaning agents are also unsuitable
as they can cause matt areas to
appear.
^ A microfibre “E-Cloth” is available
from the Miele Spare Parts
Department, 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 help prevent re-soiling, treat
stainless steel surfaces with a
proprietary conditioning agent for
stainless steel (available from the
Miele Spare Parts Department or via
the internet on www.miele.co.uk).
^ Switch the appliance off, switch off at
the socket and remove the plug.
Do not let water get into the
electronic unit or the light.
^ Take out any removable parts, e.g.
shelves, for cleaning.
Do not let water get into the

42
^ Secure fixing bracket e to the top of
the appliance with screws f
(M5 x 15).
Building in the appliance
Building in the appliance
^ Fit cover g onto fixing bracket h.
^ Secure fixing bracket h to the
bottom of the appliance with screws
i (M5 x 15).
^ Carefully remove the protective foil
from sealing strip j.
^ Apply the sealing strip to the side of
the appliance on which the door is
opened so that it is flush with the
front edge of the appliance.
Fit the sealing strip so that it meets
up with the lower edge of top cover
d and then cut the sealing strip
2 - 3 mm above bottom fixing bracket
h.
^ Push the appliance into the niche
until covers d and g touch the front
edge of the side walls of the housing
unit.
– With 16 mm thick walls:
The spacers should touch the front
edge at the top and bottom of the
side walls of the housing unit, detail
a.
– With 19 mm thick walls:
The front edges of the top and
bottom hinges sit flush with the front
edge of the housing unit side walls,
detail b.
^ Make sure that the covers on the top
and bottom fixing brackets sit flush
with the front edges of the housing
unit side walls, detail d.
This will create a gap all round of
42 mm to the front edges of the
housing unit side walls.
43
Building in the appliance
On furniture with door fittings (e.g.
stubs, seals etc) the dimension of
these must be taken into account when
making sure there is a gap all round of
42 mm.
Securing the appliance in the
niche
^ Pull the appliance forwards by the
dimension of the door fitting to keep
the gap at 42 mm all round.
The hinges and the covers will now
protrude by the dimension of the door
fitting.
Tip: Removing the door fittings. This will
ensure that the door is flush with the
surrounding kitchen unit furniture doors.
If the all round gap of 42 mm is not
maintained between the appliance
casing and the front edge of the
housing unit side wall the door may
not shut properly.
This could lead to a build-up of ice
and condensation and also cause
operational faults.
^ Align the appliance height on both
sides by altering the adjustable feet
using the spanner supplied c.
44
^ Press the appliance against the
housing unit wall on the hinge side.
