will not be covered by the guarantee.
Warning and safety instructions
Correct use
~ For added protection, it is advisable
to use heat-resistant pot holders or
gloves when using the appliance. Do
not let them get damp or wet, as this
causes heat to transfer through the
material more quickly with the risk of
scalding or burning yourself.
~ If the oven is still hot, steam will
escape when the door is opened.
Stand back away from the appliance
and wait until the steam has dissipated.
~ When putting cooking containers or
the condensate tray into the oven or

scalding.
~ If using plastic cooking containers,
make sure that they are heat- and
steam-resistant to 100 °C. Otherwise
they may melt, distort or break.
~ Do not use the appliance to heat up
food in sealed jars and tins. Pressure
will build up inside them and they can
explode causing damage to the
appliance, as well as the risk of injury
and scalding.
~ Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated. Some
foods may contain micro-organisms
which are only destroyed by thorough
cooking at a sufficiently high
temperature for long enough.
Therefore, when cooking or reheating
food such as poultry, it is particularly
important that the food is completely
cooked through. If in doubt, select a
longer cooking or reheating time.
~ Do not leave cooked food in the
oven and do not use any cooking
containers which are susceptible to
corrosion as this could lead to
corrosion in the appliance.
~ The appliance is designed in such a
way that there will always be a little
residual water left in the water container
after use. If there is no residual water,
there is something wrong. Call the Service Department.
~ Do not immerse the water container
in water or clean it in a dishwasher.
Connecting the water container into the
appliance when wet could cause an
electric shock.
~ For reasons of hygiene and to
prevent the build-up of moisture in the
appliance, the water container should
be emptied after each use.
~ Take care not to tip the water
container when taking it out of the
appliance. Hot water can scald.
~ To avoid the risk of scratching the
appliance, do not use the casing of a
freestanding appliance as a resting
place for items.
7
Warning and safety instructions
~ When using an electrical appliance,
e.g. a hand-held food blender, near the
steam oven, ensure that the cable of
the electrical appliance does not come
into contact with the hot appliance. The
insulation on the cable could become
damaged, giving rise to an electric
shock hazard.
~ When the door is open be careful
not to hurt yourself on edges and
corners, and especially on the door
catches. Danger of injury.
8
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele original
spare parts and accessories with this
appliance. If spare parts or accessories
from other manufacturers are used, this
will invalidate the guarantee, and Miele
cannot accept liability.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

Cleaning and care
Miele offer a range of branded cleaning and conditioning
products. See "Optional accessories".
,Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this
appliance. The steam could reach the electrical
components and cause a short circuit.
Switch the appliance off and allow it to cool down to a safe
temperature before cleaning. It should be cleaned after each
use.
Make sure the appliance is completely dry before closing the
door.
If the appliance is not going to be used for a long period of
time, e.g. whilst on holiday, it should be thoroughly cleaned
beforehand to prevent the build-up of odours etc. Leave the
door open afterwards.
Do not use commercial cleaning agents. Only use agents
designed for domestic use.
Do not use cleaning agents or washing-up liquids
containing aliphatic hydrocarbons as these could cause
the seals to swell.
26
Cleaning and care
Appliance front
Remove any soiling immediately.
If not, it might become impossible to remove and could
cause the surface to alter or discolour.
Clean the front using a damp Miele microfibre E-cloth or with
a clean sponge and a solution of hot water and washing-up
liquid. After cleaning dry with a soft cloth.
The outer surfaces of this appliance are all susceptible to
scratching. Scratches on glass surfaces could even cause
a breakage.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning agents can alter or
discolour surfaces.
To avoid damaging your appliance, do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda, alkalines, ammonia,
acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing descaling agents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven sprays,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive sponges and brushes, e.g. pot scourers,
– eraser blocks,
– sharp metal scrapers.
27
Cleaning and care
Oven interior
Dry the oven interior, oven interior roof, door seal, drip
channel, inside of the door and the compartment for the water
container after each use. Use a sponge or absorbent cloth to
wipe off the condensate which has built up in the
compartment.
Remove grease deposits with a clean sponge and a solution
of hot water and washing-up liquid. Rinse with clean water
and then dry the oven interior with a soft cloth.
When cleaning the back of the oven cavity, make sure that
nothing gets caught behind the seals around the steam
inlet and outlet. Otherwise the seals could get pushed into
the back panel by mistake.
After prolonged use, the floor heater can become
discoloured by drops of liquid. This discolouration can be
removed easily with the Miele ceramic and stainless steel hob
cleaner (see "Optional accessories"). After cleaning, wipe the
surface with a damp cloth to remove any cleaning agent
residues.
Replace the door seal with a new one if it becomes porous or
brittle. Door seals can be ordered from the Miele Spare Parts
Department.
Drip tray, rack and cooking containers
Wash and dry the condensate tray, rack and cooking
containers after each use. They are all dishwasher safe.
Use a little vinegar to remove any bluish discolouration on the
cooking containers.

29
Cleaning and care
Coupling seal
If the water container becomes difficult to remove and
replace or the fault message F20 appears, rub a small
amount of the silicone grease supplied (see "Guide to the
appliance / Accessories supplied") into the inside of the
coupling seal. Do not take the seal out to lubricate it!
When handling silicone grease, please observe the following
safety measures:
– Remove any silicone grease from your skin either by
wiping it off or by washing it off.
– If the grease gets into the eyes, it must be rinsed out with
plenty of clean water.
– If it is swallowed, seek medical advice.
The coupling seal should be replaced with a new one if it
becomes brittle or porous or if an unusually large amount of
water collects on the floor of the water container
compartment.
Coupling seals can be ordered from the Miele Spare Parts
Department.
Only use the silicone grease supplied. On no account
must margarine or oil or any other domestic grease or fat
be used, as these can cause the seal to swell.
30
Cleaning and care
Descaling
For optimum cleaning results we recommend that you use
Miele descaling tablets to descale your steam oven (see
"Optional accessories"). A proprietary citric acid based
descaling agent can also be used. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions on the packaging.
Ensure that the descaling agent does not come into
contact with the metal control panel or the door handle as
this could cause marks. However, should any descaling
agent get onto these surfaces, wipe it away immediately.
The water container will need descaling after a certain
number of operating hours. The display will alert you when
this needs to be done. After switching on, the descaling
symbol k and the number 10 will appear in the display.
The number indicates that the appliance can be used a
further 10 times before it locks out. If the appliance is not
descaled immediately, a 9 will appear in the display the next
time the appliance is switched on, and so on.
The appliance will then lock and it must be descaled before it
can be used again.
You can start the descaling programme manually before the
appliance locks out.
^ Touch s until an audible tone sounds and "0:22 h" appears
in the display and the k symbol starts flashing.
^ Fill the water container with 1 litre of descaling solution.
Follow the instructions on the descaling agent packaging
carefully.
^ Push the water container into the appliance until it
connects.
Confirm with "OK".
31
Cleaning and care
Descaling will now begin. The colon will flash and the k
symbol will now light up constantly in the display.
It is only possible to cancel the descaling process during the
first minute. After that the process cannot be cancelled.
Do not switch the appliance off during the descaling
process. If it is switched off before the end of the process,
the whole process will have to be started from the
beginning again.
An audible tone will sound and the p symbol will start
flashing ten minutes before the end of the descaling process.
The water container needs to be filled with fresh water.
^ Remove the water container and empty it. Remove the
insert.
^ Rinse the water container and the insert thoroughly.

Problem solving guide
,Installation work and repairs to electrical appliances
must only be carried out by a suitably qualified and
competent person in strict accordance with current local
and national safety regulations (BS 7671 in the UK).
Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work.
What to do if ...
... you cannot switch the appliance on.
Check whether the mains fuse has tripped.
If this is not the case, then disconnect the appliance from the
electricity supply for approx. 1 minute. To do this:
– switch off at the wall socket and withdraw the plug, or
switch off at the isolator, or
– disconnect the mains fuse.
Reset the trip switch in the mains fuse box, and switch the
appliance back on. If it still will not switch on, contact a
qualified electrician or the Miele Service Department.
... the appliance does not heat up.
Check whether you set the demo-mode setting by mistake
(see "Programming").
... the fan can still be heard after the appliance has been
switched off.
The appliance is fitted with a fan which removes steam from
the oven.
The fan will continue to run for a while after the appliance has
been switched off.
33
Problem solving guide
... the water container has become harder to put into the
appliance and take out again.
Lightly lubricate the coupling seal on the water container with
silicone grease, as described in "Cleaning and care /
Coupling seal".
... the heating-up phase lasts an unusually long time.
Check the bottom of the water container.
If a thick layer of limescale has built-up, check the water
hardness level that has been set. Set the correct water
hardness level for your water supply (see "Programming"),
and descale the appliance as described in "Cleaning and
care / Descaling".
If the water hardness level was in fact set correctly or the
problem occurs again, contact the Service Department.
... after moving house the appliance no longer switches
from the heating-up phase to the cooking phase.
Altitude affects the boiling point of water. If you move house,
the appliance will need to be re-set for the new altitude if this
differs from the old one by more than 300 m. To do this,
descale the appliance (see "Cleaning and care / Descaling").
... during operation an unusually large amount of steam
escapes or steam escapes from parts of the steam oven
where it does not usually.
Check whether
– the door is closed properly.
– the door seal is fitted correctly. If necessary, press it in all
the way round the door to make sure it is fitted evenly.
– the door seal is damaged, e.g. cracks can be seen. The
seal must be replaced with a new one.
If this does not solve the problem, call the Miele Service
Department.
34
Problem solving guide
... the p symbol appears in the display and an audible
tone may sound.
Check whether
– the water container has been pushed right into the
appliance so that it connects.
– there is sufficient water in the water container. The water
level must be between the two markings.
... when the appliance is switched on, the k symbol and a
number between 1 and 10 or
"0:22h" appear in the display and the k symbol flashes.
The appliance needs to be descaled. Proceed as described
in "Cleaning and care - Descaling".
... F05 or F06 appears in the display.
Switch the appliance off and call the Service Department.
... F20 appears in the display.
The appliance does not heat up.
– First of all, check whether the water container has been
pushed right into the appliance so that it connects. Then
switch the appliance off and then back on again.
– A fault message will appear if the temperature of the oven
compartment has not risen by at least 2 °C within 5
minutes of the start of the heating up phase. This can
occur if, for example, a large quantity of frozen food is
being prepared.
– Lightly lubricate the coupling seal on the water container
with silicone grease, as described in "Cleaning and care /
Water container / Coupling seal".
If the appliance still will not start, switch it off and contact the
Miele Service Department.
... after a period of time, the door makes a noise when it is
opened and closed.
Lubricate the hinges with the silicone grease supplied.
