household wiring system should be
inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).

or components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous to the user and can
cause operational faults.
~ Installation, maintenance and
repairs may only be carried out by a
Miele authorised person in strict
accordance with current national and
local safety regulations.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work.

replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. The manufacturer can only
guarantee the safety of the appliance
when Miele replacement parts are
used.
~ During installation, maintenance and
repair work, the appliance must be
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply. It is only completely isolated
from the electricity supply when:
– the mains fuse is disconnected, or
– it is switched off at the wall socket
and the plug is withdrawn from the

cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
appliance and its surroundings in a
clean condition at all times. Any
damage caused by cockroaches or
other vermin 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.
~ When putting cooking containers or
the condensate tray into the oven or
taking them out, take care not to spill
the contents. Avoid contact with hot
steam, and do not touch the hot oven
interior walls. Danger of burning and
scalding.
~ Do not store anything combustible in
the oven. This could be a fire hazard if
the appliance is switched on by
mistake.
~ Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil or
fats, as these are a fire hazard if
allowed to overheat.
~ If oil or fat catches fire, do not
attempt to put out the flames with water.
Use a suitable fire blanket or fire
extinguisher.
~ Never place a dish, tin, baking tray
or similar object on the oven floor. Do
not place the baking tray or condensate
tray directly on to the oven floor.
~ Never line the floor of the oven with
aluminium foil. Do not use protective
aluminium foil panels, available in retail
outlets which are intended to be used
to line the oven cavity reduce the need
for cleaning. If used, cooking and
baking times would increase
considerably and they would block the
steam inlet.
~ 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.
~ Do not use the appliance to heat up
~ If using plastic cooking containers,
make sure that they are heat- and
steam-resistant to 100°C. Otherwise
they may melt, distort or break.
~ Always ensure that food is
~ Do not use silicone bakeware with
the steam/fan plus combination mode
as silicone is not steam-resistant.

radiated, objects near the appliance
could catch fire. The life of the
appliance could also be reduced.
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.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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.
~ Do not operate the appliance
without the lamp cover. Steam could
could attack the electrical components
and cause a short circuit. Steam could
also damage the electrical
components.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
~ 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.
~ When using an electric socket near
the steam oven, care should be taken
that the cable of the appliance cannot
get trapped by the steam oven door.
The insulation on the cable could
become damaged, giving rise to an
electric shock hazard.
~ Do not place heavy objects on the
open door. The door can support a
maximum weight of 8 kg.

Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and can normally be
recycled.
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.
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 they are
recycled.
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.
It should be unplugged or
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply by a competent person.

Condensate tray
When using perforated containers or roasting on the rack,
place the condensate tray on the lowest shelf runner to
collect any drops of liquid and allow them to be removed
easily.
Grease filters
The grease filter in the oven ceiling must be fitted for every
programme.
Fit the grease filter in the back wall for all roasting
programmes.
It should be removed when using steam programmes.
It must be removed when baking, as otherwise results can be
uneven (Exception: fit the grease filter in the back wall when
baking open deep fresh fruit flans, e.g. plum or damson or
pizza with lots of topping).
Water container
The maximum water level is 1.2 litres, the minimum 0.75 litres.
The water level markers are located inside and outside the
container. On no account exceed the upper or maximum
level marker.
The maximum quantity of 1.2 litres of water is sufficient to run
a cooking programme at 100 °C for approx. 2 hours, and the
minimum quantity of 0.75 litres of water is sufficient to run a
cooking programme at 100 °C for approx. 30 minutes,
providing the door is not opened.
The water level in the water container is represented by a
symbol in the display.
Temperature
Some of the functions are allocated with a recommended
temperature. You can alter the recommended temperature for
an individual cooking process or permanently (see "Settings /
Recommended temperature").
17
Description of the functions
Cooking duration (time)
A duration of between 1 minute (0:01) and 9 hours 59 minutes
(9:59) can be set.
The duration for Automatic programmes c and Descale F
is set at the factory and cannot be altered.
On functions and programmes that use steam alone, the
cooking duration does not start to count down until the set
temperature has been reached; on all other functions and
programmes, it begins immediately.
Moisture/humidity level
The Combination mode and Reheat functions use a
combination of fan heat and moisture/humidity. You can alter
the moisture/humidity level within a given range for an
individual cooking programme or a cooking stage.
Noises
You can hear the noise of the fan when the appliance is
operating.
Noises similar to those of a kettle can be heard when steam is
being generated.
Heating phase
While the appliance is heating up to the temperature which
has been set, the rising temperature inside the oven and
"Heating up" show in the display. (Exception: Automatic
programmes, Descale).
Steam cooking
When cooking with steam, the duration of the heating-up
phase will depend on the quantity and the temperature of the
food. In general the heating-up phase will last for approx. 7
minutes. The duration will be longer if you are preparing
refrigerated or frozen food. Filling the water container with hot
water will shorten the heating-up time.

Before using for the first time
Setting the correct boiling point for water
The boiling point for water at a high altitude above sea level
will be lower than the boiling point for water at sea level. To
adjust the boiling point for the altitude in your area, fill the
water container with mains tap water (See "Operation Preparing the appliance for use"), and then run the Cook
universal programme ! (100 °C) for 15 minutes. Proceed as
described in "Operation".
This procedure sets the correct boiling point for water for the
altitude in your area and also flushes out the waterways.
Warning! A lot of steam will be emitted from the appliance.
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 - Maintenance - Descaling").
Heating up the appliance
To remove grease from the ring heating element, heat the
steam combi oven up with nothing in it at 200 °C using the
Fan plus programme for 30 minutes. Proceed as described in
"Operation".
There will be a slight smell the first time the heating element is
heated up.
The smell and any vapours will dissipate after a short time,
and do not indicate a faulty connection or appliance. It is
important to ensure that the room is well ventilated during this
operation.

Cleaning and care
,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.
46
Cleaning and care
Appliance front
Remove any soiling immediately.
If this is not done, 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 external surfaces of the appliance are susceptible to
scratching. Scratches on glass surfaces could even cause
a breakage.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning agents can alter or
discolour the external surfaces.
To avoid damaging the surface of 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,
– dirt erasers,
– sharp metal scrapers.
47
Cleaning and care
Oven interior
The oven interior is made from stainless steel which has been
treated with a special type of enamelling called
PerfectClean. The PerfectClean enamel has an iridescent
appearance.
However, it is very important to clean the surfaces each time
the appliance is used. The surface will become harder to
clean and the anti-stick properties will deteriorate if soiling is
not removed after each use and allowed to build up.
Soiling such as spilt juices and cake mixtures are best
removed whilst the oven or tray is still warm. Exercise caution,
make sure the oven is not hot - danger of burning.
Spilt fruit juices may cause lasting discolouration of the
surfaces. This discolouration is permanent but will not affect
the efficiency of the enamel.
Remove the soiling with clean water or use the "Maintenance
- Soak" function (see appropriate section). The water must run
off the surface easily. Any residual cleaning agents will hinder
this effect.
The following cause lasting damage to the surface
structure, reduce the anti-stick effect and must not be
used on PerfectClean surfaces:
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. powder cleaners and
cream cleaners,
- cleaning agents for ceramic hobs,
- ceramic and stainless steel hob cleaners
- wire wool or metal scourers,
- abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers or sponges which
have been previously used with abrasive cleaning agents,
- oven spray must not be used in a hot oven or left on for
too long,
- spot cleaning by rubbing the surface.
48
Cleaning and care
After a programme using steam
Use a sponge or absorbent cloth to remove condensate
which has built up in the compartment.
Remove light soiling with a sponge and a solution of
washing-up liquid and hot water.
Rinse thoroughly with clean water and then dry the oven
interior with a soft cloth. You can then leave the oven to dry
automatically (see "Maintenance - Drying").
After a roasting or baking programme
Remove light soiling with a washing-up sponge and a
solution of washing-up liquid and hot water. If necessary, the
scouring pad on the reverse of a non-abrasive sponge can
be used.
Rinse thoroughly with clean water and then dry the oven
interior with a soft cloth. You can then leave the oven to dry
automatically (see "Maintenance - Drying").
An oven cleaner can be used to remove stubborn soiling,
e.g. from roasting.
Allow the oven compartment to cool down to room
temperature. Apply a spray oven cleaner to the soiled areas
of the oven compartment and leave to take effect for
approximately 10 minutes. If necessary after allowing the
spray to take effect, use the scouring pad on the reverse of a
non-abrasive washing-up sponge to remove the soiling.
Repeat the process if necessary.
Rinse thoroughly with clean water and then dry the oven
interior with a soft cloth. You can then leave the oven to dry
automatically (see "Maintenance - Drying").
Soaking the soilng for a few minutes with a solution of
washing-up liquid and hot water can make cleaning easier.
49
Cleaning and care
Floor heater
After a long time, the floor heater can become discoloured by
drops of liquid. This discolouration can be removed with a
non-abrasive stainless steel spiral pad.
Door seal
Grease desposits on the seal between the inside of the oven
door and the oven interior can cause it to become brittle and
cracked. Clean the door seal after every baking or roasting
programme using a clean, damp Miele E-cloth or a clean
sponge and a solution of washing-up liquid and hot water.
Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Replace the seal with a new one if it becomes porous or
brittle. Door seals can be ordered from the Miele Spare Parts
Department.
50
Cleaning and care
Accessories
Condensate tray, rack, cooking containers and baking tray
Wash and dry the condensate tray, rack, cooking containers
and baking tray after each use. They are all dishwasher safe.
Use a little vinegar to remove any bluish discolouration on the
cooking containers.
You could also use the Miele ceramic and stainless steel hob
cleaner (see "Optional accessories"). Rinse the containers
thoroughly with clean water to remove any residual cleaning
agent.
Side runners
The side runners have been treated with PerfectClean
enamel. They should be cleaned according to the cleaning
instructions for PerfectClean described in "Cleaning and care
- oven interior". Do not clean the side runners in a
dishwasher.
The side runners are easy to remove which makes it easier to
clean the sides of the oven.
^ Pull out the fixing knob as far as possible. Remove the
runner by first pulling it inwards a and then out from the
back b.
^ To re-fit the runners, reverse the above procedure: first fit
them into the back of the oven and then push them in at the
sides.
51
Cleaning and care
Grease filters
Clean the grease filters after every roasting programme with a
solution of washing-up liquid and hot water or in the
dishwasher.
^ Pull the grease filter on the back panel upwards to remove
it.
If the grease filter for the back panel is cleaned in the
dishwasher, results are better if the filter is placed horizontally
in the basket. Some dishwasher detergents may cause the
surface of the filter to discolour. This discolouration will not
affect the functioning of the filter in any way.
^ Hold the oven ceiling filter at a slight angle to insert it.
52
Cleaning and care
Maintenance
Soak
^ Allow the oven interior to cool down.
^ Remove all accessories and fill the water container with
fresh tap water.
^ Select "Automatic programmes c - Maintenance".
^ Select "Soak".
The soaking process takes approx. 15 minutes.
Drying
^ Dry the oven interior with a soft cloth.
^ Select "Automatic programmes c - Maintenance".
^ Select "Drying".
^ The drying process takes approx. 25 minutes.
53
Cleaning and care
Water container
Remove, empty and dry the water container after each use.
^ Release the insert by pushing the catches on the sides in
towards each other and the pull it out of the container.
^ After cleaning, dry both parts of the insert thoroughly
before replacing it in the water container. When replacing
the insert, guide it in at an angle a and then push it
downwards b as illustrated.
Do not immerse the water container in water or clean it in a
dishwasher.
It is important to empty the water container after each use
for hygiene reasons, and also to prevent condensate
building up in the appliance.
Do not use scouring pads or hard brushes.
54
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.
55
Cleaning and care
F Descaling
For optimum cleaning results we recommend that you use
Miele descaling tablets to descale your steam combi 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.
The appliance will lock out after you use it for the tenth time.
We recommend that you descale the appliance before it
locks out.
^ 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.
^ Select the "Descale" function.
^ Confirm with "OK".
^ Confirm with "OK" again.
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 if is switched off before the end of the process,
the whole process will have to be started from the
beginning again.
After 12 minutes, the appliance will prompt you to fill it with
fresh tap water.
56
Cleaning and care
^ Remove the water container and empty it. Remove the
insert.
^ Rinse the water container and the insert thoroughly.
^ Replace the insert and fill the water container with 1 litre of
fresh tap water. Push the water container into the appliance
until it connects.
The descaling process will continue automatically when the
water container is pushed back into the appliance.
Once the descaling process has finished, "Empty the
condensate tray" will appear in the display.
^ Confirm with "OK".
If this is not confirmed with "OK", but instead the appliance
is switched off or another function is selected, the
descaling process must be repeated when the appliance is
next switched on.
After descaling:
^ Switch off the appliance.
^ Open the door.
^ Remove the water container and empty it.
^ Dry the appliance thoroughly.
^ Make sure the appliance is completely dry before closing
the door.
