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
offered for recycling.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
The plug must be rendered useless
and the cable cut off directly behind the
appliance or the machine to prevent
misuse. 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.

with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of
experience and knowledge, unless they
have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the
appliance by a person responsible for
their safety.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before setting up the appliance,
check it for any externally visible
damage.
Do not install and use a damaged
appliance.
~ This appliance contains the coolant
Isobutane (R600a), a natural gas which
is environmentally friendly. Although it
is flammable, it does not damage the
ozone layer and does not increase the
greenhouse effect. The use of this
coolant has, however, led to a slight
increase in the noise level of the
appliance. In addition to the noise of
the compressor, you might be able to
hear the coolant flowing around the
system. This is unavoidable, but does
not have any adverse effect on the
performance of the appliance.
Care must be taken during the
transportation and setting up of the
appliance that no parts of the cooling
system are damaged. Leaking coolant
can be harmful to the eyes.
In the event of any damage:
- avoid open fires and anything which
creates a spark,
- disconnect from the mains,
- air the room in which the appliance is
located for several minutes and
- contact the Service Department for
advice.
~ The more coolant there is in an
appliance, the larger the room it should
be installed in. In the event of a
leakage, if the appliance is in a small
room, there is the danger of
combustible gases building up.
For every 8 g of coolant at least 1 m3 of
room space is required. The amount of
coolant in the appliance is stated on the
data plate inside the appliance.
~ Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply, make sure that the
rating on the data plate corresponds to
the voltage and frequency of the
household supply.
This data must correspond in order to
avoid the risk of damage to the
appliance. Consult a qualified
electrician if in any doubt.
~ The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it
and an effective earthing system which
complies with current local and national
safety regulations. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
present and tested regularly, and
where there is any doubt, the
household wiring system should be
inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for damage or injury caused by the lack
of or inadequacy of an effective
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
~ If the connection cable is faulty it
must only be replaced by a Miele
approved service technician to protect
the user from danger.
8

danger of overheating).
~ In countries where there are areas
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 may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the guarantee.
Correct use
~ Never store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products
containing propellants (e.g. spray
cans). Thermostats switching on may
produce sparks which could present a
fire hazard. Flammable compounds
could explode.
~ Do not operate any electrical
equipment (e.g. an electric ice-cream
maker) inside the appliance. Danger of
sparking and explosion.
~ If storing alcohol with a high
percentage proof, make sure it is tightly
closed and stored upright.
Danger of explosion.
~ Observe the "use by" dates given on
food to avoid the risk of food poisoning.
Storage times will depend on several
factors, including the freshness and
quality of the food as well as the
temperature at which it is stored. Follow
the instructions given on the food
manufacturer’s packaging on storage
conditions required.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not use sharp edged objects to
– remove frost and ice,
– separate food which has become
frozen.
They will damage the evaporator,
causing irreversible damage to the
appliance.
~ Do not use defrosting sprays or
de-icers, as they might contain
substances which could damage the
plastic parts or which could cause a
build-up of gases and pose a danger to
health.
~ Do not use any oils or grease on the
door seal as these will cause the seal to
become porous with time.
~ 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.
~ Do not block the ventilation gap in
the plinth or the top of the appliance
housing unit as this would impair the
efficiency of the appliance, increase
the electricity consumption and could
cause damage to the appliance.
~ The appliance is designed for use
within certain climate ranges (ambient
temperatures), and should not be used
outside this range. The climate range
for your appliance is stated on the data
plate inside the appliance.
Installing it in a room with too low an
ambient temperature, e.g. a garage,
can lead to the appliance switching off
for longer periods so that it cannot
maintain the required temperature.
10
~ Never use a steam-cleaning
appliance to clean this appliance.
Pressurised steam could reach the
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
Disposal of your old appliance
~ Before disposing of an old
appliance first make the door latch or
lock unusable.
This way you will prevent children from
accidentally locking themselves in and
endangering their lives.
~ Be careful not to damage any part of
the pipework whilst awaiting disposal,
e.g. by
– puncturing the refrigerant channels
in the evaporator.
– bending any pipework.
– scratching the surface coating.
Splashes of refrigerant can damage the
eyes.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

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.
The appliance is designed for use in
specific ambient temperatures

SuperCool and DynamicCooling
SuperCool
DynamicCooling m
The SuperCool function can be used to
rapidly reduce the temperature in the
refrigerator section to its lowest setting
(depending on the room temperature).
When the DynamicCooling 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
DynamicCooling. 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 SuperCool
SuperCool is particularly recommended
for faster chilling of large amounts of
fresh food or drink.
^ Press the SuperCool button. The
SuperCool indicator light will come
on.
The appliance will then work at full
power to lower the temperature.
Switching off SuperCool
The SuperCool 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.
DynamicCooling should also be
selected when:

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 DynamicCooling,
which helps to keep an even
temperature when the fan is running.
When DynamicCooling 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,
– sausage products, ready meals,
– 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.
– 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, eggplants 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,
passionfruit, citrus fruit
– fruit which is not yet ripe
– eggplants, cucumbers, potatoes,
capsicum, tomatoes, zucchinis
– 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

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.

^ Fit the cover g onto the fixing
bracket h.
^ Secure the fixing bracket h to the
bottom of the appliance with the
screws i (M5 x 15).
^ Carefully remove the protective foil
from the sealing strip j.
– With 16 mm thick furniture walls:
The spacers should touch the front
edge at the top and bottom of the
side walls of the housing unit, detail
a.
^ 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. The
sealing strip should meet up with the
lower edge of the cover d. Cut the
sealing strip 2 - 3 mm above the
bottom fixing bracket h, if
necessary.
– With 19 mm thick furniture walls:
The front edges of the top and
bottom hinges sit flush with the front
edge of the housing unit side walls,
detail b.
^ Push the appliance into its niche until
the covers d and g touch the front
edge of the side walls of the housing
unit.
^ Make sure that the plastic 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 of 42 mm to the
front edges of the housing unit side
walls.
44
Building in the appliance
On furniture with door fittings (e.g.
bumps, 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 will now protrude by the
dimension of the door fitting.
Tip: Remove 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 on both sides by
altering the adjustable feet using the
spanner supplied c.
^ Press the appliance against the wall
on the hinge side.
^ To fix the appliance to the housing
