IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
~ Ensure that any packing material is
disposed of safely and kept out of the
reach of children. Danger of
suffocation!
Technical safety
~ The refrigerant system is tested for
leaks. This appliance complies with
statutory safety requirements.
~ This appliance contains the
refrigerant 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 refrigerant 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 refrigerant
flowing around the system. This is
unavoidable, and 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
refrigerant can cause severe irritation to
the eyes.
In the event of any damage:
– avoid open flames and anything that
creates a spark,
– disconnect the appliance from the
electrical power supply,
– air the room in which the appliance is
located for several minutes and
– contact Miele Service.
6
~ The more refrigerant 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 refrigerant at least 1 m3
of room space is required. The amount
of refrigerant in the appliance is stated
on the data plate inside the appliance.
~ To avoid the risk of damage to the
appliance, make sure that the
connection data (fuse rating, frequency
and voltage) on the data plate
corresponds to the household supply.
Check that this is the case before
connecting the appliance. Consult a
qualified electrician if in any doubt.
~ Be certain your appliance is
properly installed and grounded by a
qualified technician. To guarantee the
electrical safety of this appliance,
continuity must exist between the
appliance and an effective grounding
system. It is imperative that this basic
safety requirement be met. If there is
any doubt, have the electrical system of
the house checked by a qualified
electrician.
~ If the power cord is damaged, it
must be replaced by a Miele authorized
technician in order to protect the user
from harm.
~ Do not connect the appliance to the
electrical supply with a power bar or
extension cord. These are a fire hazard
and do not guarantee the required
safety of the appliance.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
~ Do not use the appliance in areas
where there may be moisture or
splashing water (e.g. garages, laundry
rooms, etc.).
Moisture can reach the electrical
components and cause a short circuit.
~ This appliance is not to be used in
non-stationary locations, such as
ships.
~ Do not use a damaged appliance. It
could be dangerous. Check the
appliance for visible signs of damage.
Proper use
~ The appliance is designed for use
within a certain climate range (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,
will lead to the appliance turning off for
longer periods so that it cannot
maintain the required temperature.
Do not cover or block the air vents.
~ The appliance must be isolated from ~

or
– the power cord has been unplugged.
Pull on the plug and not on the cord
when removing it from the outlet.
~ Repairs should only be carried out
by a qualified and trained person in
strict accordance with local and
national safety regulations.
Unauthorized repairs could cause
personal injury or machine damage and
may void the warranty.
~ Repairs and other work performed
by unauthorized persons could be
dangerous and may void the warranty.
~ Defective components should only
be replaced by Miele original parts.
Only with these parts can the
manufacturer guarantee the safety of
the appliance.
appliance, increase the electricity
consumption and cause damage to the
appliance.
~ If you store greasy foods in the
appliance or the appliance door, make
sure that no oil or grease leaks onto the
plastic parts of the appliance.
This can cause the plastic to crack and
break.
~ Do not store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products
containing propellants (e.g. spray
cans). Electrical components could
cause flammable vapors to ignite.
Danger of fire and explosion.
~ 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 in the

Temperature and air quality
Wine continues to mature depending
on the surrounding conditions. The
length of time for which wine can be
kept in good condition will therefore
depend not only on the temperature but
also on the air quality.
The wine storage unit with its constant
ideal temperature, increased air
humidity and odor free atmosphere
offers the perfect conditions for storing
your wine.
It also guarantees a vibration-free
environment so that the maturing
process is not disturbed.
Temperature
Wine can be stored at a temperature
between 42°F and 64°F (6°C and
18°C). If you are storing white and red
wines together, select a temperature
between 53°F and 57°F (12°C and
14°C). This is suitable for both red and
white wines.
At too high a temperature (over 71°F
(22°C)), wine matures too quickly,
which prevents the aromas from
developing further. Wine cannot mature
fully at too low a temperature (below
41°F (5°C)).
Fluctuations in temperature put wine
under stress and interrupt the maturing
process. It is therefore very important to
maintain a constant temperature.
22

Tip: Store the wine 1 or 2° cooler than
the recommended drinking temperature
as it warms up a little when poured into
the glass.
Full-bodied reds should be opened for
2-3 hours before drinking to allow it to
breathe and develop its aroma.
Temperature and air quality
Safety device in case of low ambient
temperatures
The appliance is equipped with a safety
thermostat to protect your wine against
a sharp drop in temperature. If the
external temperature should drop
below this level, a heater element turns
on automatically to keep the
temperature inside as constant as
possible. If the ambient temperature
continues to fall, the appliance switches
itself off automatically.
Isolator panels for thermal
separation
The appliance has a fixed isolator plate
which divides the cabinet into two
different zones. This enables you to
store different types of wine at the same
time, e.g. red wine and champagne.
The isolation strips on the inside of the
glass door prevent an exchange of heat
between the individual zones.
Setting the temperature
The temperature can be set in all three
zones independently of each other.
^ Touch the sensor for the zone for
which you wish to change the
temperature so that it is highlighted in
yellow.
The current temperature for the
selected zone appears in the display.
^ Set the temperature using the two
buttons underneath the display.
By touching the button:
– the temperature will get colder,
– the temperature will get warmer.
^ Tap the OK button to confirm your
selection.
or
^ Wait approximately 5 seconds after
the last press of the button.
23
Temperature and air quality
The temperature being set will flash in
the display.
Possible setting values for the
temperature
The following information shows in the
display when the buttons are tapped:
In all three zones, it is possible to set
temperatures between 41°F and 68°F
(5°C and 20°C).
– When first touched:
The last temperature selected
flashes.
– Each subsequent touch of the
button:
The temperature value adjusts in 1°
steps.
– Leaving a finger on the sensor:
changes the temperature
continuously.
A negative tone will sound (if the
sensor tone is activated) when the
lowest or highest possible
temperature is reached.
Approximately 5 seconds after the last
time a sensor has been touched, the
current temperature inside the
appliance is automatically shown.
When the temperature is altered, there
is a short delay until the temperature
selected is set.
The temperature display on the
control panel always shows the
actual temperature.
24
Temperature display
In normal operation, the temperature
display shows the actual temperature in
the zone.
If the temperature in one of the zones is
not within the range that the appliance
is able to display, dashes will light up in
the temperature display.
Depending on the ambient temperature
and the temperature setting, it can take
the appliance a few hours to reach the
temperature required and for this
temperature to then be shown as a
constant temperature in the display.
Temperature and air quality
Air quality and humidity
DynaCool (constant humidity) m
A conventional refrigerator with its low
humidity level is not the best place to
store wine. It is very important to store
wine in an atmosphere with a high
humidity level so that the corks remain
moist on the outside. Low humidity
causes corks to dry out from the
outside, and so do not seal the bottles
as tightly. Wine should be stored lying
down to keep the corks moist from the
inside too. Air entering the bottle will
inevitably spoil the wine.
DynaCool raises the relative humidity
inside the appliance.
It also distributes the humidity and the
temperature evenly around the interior
so that you can store all your wine
under the same excellent conditions.
This will create a stable climate in the
cabinet which imitates that of a wine
cellar.
Do not introduce additional moisture
into the air, e.g. by placing a bowl of
water in the appliance, as this will
lead to condensation on the interior
walls, which can cause corrosion
damage.
Turning on DynaCool
If you would like to use the wine storage
unit to store wine long term, we
recommend that you keep the
DynaCool function turned on.
^ Tap the button for constant humidity
until it lights up yellow.
Even if DynaCool has not been
turned on, the fans in the appliance
will come on automatically when the
cooling system switches on to ensure
your wine is kept in the optimum
climate.
The fans automatically turn off when
the door is open.
25
Temperature and air quality
Turning off DynaCool
The appliance uses slightly more
energy and is a little noisier when the
DynaCool function is turned on. You
can turn it off occasionally if you wish.
^ Tap the button for constant humidity
until it no longer lights up yellow.
Air filtering with the active charcoal
filter
The activated charcoal filter ensures
optimal air replacement and thus air
quality.
Fresh air from the outside enters the
appliance via the active charcoal filter.
The DynaCool system then distributes
the air evenly throughout the cabinet.
Filtering the incoming air through the
active charcoal filter ensures that all the
air entering the appliance is fresh and
free from dust and smells.
This in turn ensures your wine does not
absorb any unwanted odors.
Replace the active charcoal filter when
the — indicator appears in the display
(see "Active charcoal filter").
26
Temperature and door alarm
The appliance is equipped with an
alarm system so that the temperature in
the three temperature zones cannot rise
or fall unnoticed, thus possibly
damaging the wine.
Turning off the audio alarm
If the audio alarm bothers you, it can be
silenced.
Temperature alarm
If the temperature in one of the wine
storage zones rises or falls by a certain
amount, the sensor for that zone will
start flashing in the control panel and
the alarm symbol ; will start to flash in
the display.
An alarm will also sound.
The audio and visual signals are
triggered, for example:
– when the appliance is turned on and
the temperature in a temperature
zone deviates greatly from the set
temperature,
– when too much warm ambient air
enters the cabinet when bottles are
being rearranged or taken out;
– when a large number of bottles are
stored for the first time,
– in the event of a power failure.
^ Touch the sensor button to turn off
the alarm.
The alarm will stop sounding.
The relevant wine storage zone and the
alarm symbol ; will continue to flash in
the display until the reason for the

lasers in the lighting (laser beam
class 1M) which you should avoid
looking at directly. Do not use
optical instruments (magnifying
glass or similar) to look at the
lighting.
Storing wine bottles
Vibration and movement have a
negative effect on the maturing process
which can affect the taste of the wine.
Wooden shelves
To avoid disturbing other bottles when
removing a bottle of wine, store bottles
of the same type beside each other on
the same shelf. Avoid stacking bottles
on top of one another on the wooden
shelves.
Always place the bottles in a horizontal
position so that the corks can be kept
moist on the inside and air is prevented
from getting into the bottles.
The wooden shelves supported by
runners can be extended so that you
can insert and remove the wine bottles
comfortably.
The middle and lower wine storage
zone is also located on two wooden
shelves on full extenders (the second
and third wooden shelf from the top)
that make loading and removal
particularly comfortable. The other
wooden shelves have a partial
extender.
Please note that only short wooden
shelves fit on the top runner of the
three storage zones.
31
Storing wine bottles
Moving the wooden shelves
Adjusting the wooden shelves
The wooden shelves can be removed
and replaced again if required.
The slats in the wooden shelves can be

^ Simply lift individual slats to move or
remove them from the wooden
shelves.
^ cover the top runners on both sides
which are now not needed with the
covers supplied. The thicker side of
the cover should point forwards. The
covers are held in position with
magnets.
^ To replace the racks, set them on the
extended runners until they latch. In
the process, the magnetic strip
should face forward.
32
The slats in the decanter rack and in
the SommelierSet rack cannot be
adjusted.
Storing wine bottles
Labeling wooden shelves
Bottle presenter
For quick and easy identification of the
wines in storage, you can use the chalk
supplied to annotate the magnetic
strips on the wooden shelves. You can
write directly on the strips or remove
them from the wooden shelf to do so:
With the display rack, you can give
prominence to selected bottles so that
they can be seen even with the door
closed.
^ Hold the magnetic strip by the sides
and pull it forwards. The magnetic
strip is held on the wooden shelf by
magnets.
^ Label the magnetic strip with the
chalk supplied and replace it on the
front of the wooden shelf.
^ The magnetic strip can be wiped
clean with a damp cloth.
Only use water to wipe the magnetic
strips. Do not use a cleaning agent
as this would damage the
blackboard paint used on the
magnetic strips.
In order to set up the bottle presenter,
the wooden shelf above must be
removed:
^ Remove the wooden shelf and put
the side covers on the runners.
^ Place the bottle presenter to the front
of the desired wooden shelf and lay
the wine bottle on the bottle
presenter.
^ If you want, turn on the feature light
(see "Feature light") to emphasize the
selected wine bottle accordingly.
33
Storing wine bottles
Maximum capacity
Each wooden shelf has a maximum
load-bearing capacity of 77 lbs
(35 kg).
Do not stack bottles on the wooden
shelves.
A total of 178 Bordeaux bottles (0.75 l)
can be stored in the appliance, with 46
in the upper zone, 46 in the middle
zone, and 86 in the lower zone.
The number 178 bottles can be
achieved only using all wooden
shelves. The exception are the
decanting shelves since neck on neck
is not recommended in this case and
the decorative shelves at the bottom of
the appliance.
34
Sommelier set
Covering the runners
The sommelier set can be used to have
your wine ready for drinking. You can
store wine glasses and accessories in
the appliance, decant your wine, and
store open bottles in the appliance.
^ Place the four covers supplied a
over the runners which are now
visible with the thicker side of the
cover pointing forwards.
Glass holder
This can be used for storing and
chilling wine glasses.
Setting up the sommelier set
You can place the glass holder and
bottle holder with accessory box in the
middle or lower wine storage zone. It is
important that you select a wooden
shelf with a full extender (the second
and third wooden shelves in the middle
and lower wine tempering zones can
be extended fully).
You must remove the wooden shelves
lying underneath:
^ Pull the wooden shelf forward to the
limit stop and lift it up and off the
extension rails. To do so, grab it on

35
Sommelier set
Bottle holder
Accessory box
You can store opened wine bottles in
the bottle holder c:
You can place accessories like a
corkscrew, sommelier knife, or chalk
on, in, and under the accessory box e.
^ Remove the necessary number of
slats on the wooden shelf and place
bottle holder c on it.
^ Position the dividers d in the bottle
holder to suit the size of bottles being
held. They should be held securely
and not rattle against each other.
^ Hang the accessory box e into the
bottle holder as well and close it with
the lid f if necessary.
Tip:
It is recommended to remove the
oxygen from opened bottles of wine to
avoid loss of aroma and taste.
^ You can also hang the accessory box
e in the middle of the wooden shelf.
To do so, remove the corresponding
slats and insert the accessory box,
which lies on slats on both sides in
the process.
In this way, you gain space for
additional bottles in the bottle holder.
36
Sommelier set
Decanting shelves
Before you open a bottle of wine, we
recommend that you let it lie on the
decanting shelf for a few days. Due to
the incline of the decanting shelf, the
bottom of the bottle lies deeper than the
neck of the bottle which means that
turbidity settles on the bottom of the
bottle.
When the wine is poured carefully, the
turbidity remains in the bottle.
Both wooden shelves and insertable
bars provided with the sommelier set
can be used to create a decanting
shelf:
^ Place the decanting shelf above an
isolator plate (see "Appliance
overview") so that it latches in the
rear.
If you place the decanting shelf
below the accessory box, pull the top
wooden shelf forwards to the limit
stop.
^ Lay the wine bottles with the slant to
the bottom of the bottle on the
wooden shelf so that the turbidity
sinks to the bottom of the bottle.
Note: The maximum storage capacity
is not reached when the decanting
shelves are used. To achieve this
capacity, remove the bars below the
decanting shelves and insert the
wooden shelves again. Now the
wooden shelf no longer has a slant
and the bottles can be stored neck
on neck.
Decorative shelf
^ Place the bars with the pins facing
downward into the holes of the
wooden shelf.
Place the decorative shelf at the very
bottom of the appliance (see "Guide to
the appliance").
You can attach the bar at the front or
rear of the wooden shelf.
If the bar is attached at the front, the
wooden shelf slants slightly backwards.
In this case, store the wine bottles with
the bottom of the bottle to the rear (see
figure).
If the bar is attached at the rear, the
wooden shelf slants slightly to the front.
In this case, store the wine bottles with
the bottom of the bottle to the front.
37
Sommelier set
Additional bottle presenter
For the proper presentation of your
wines, you will receive two additional
bottle presenters together with the
sommelier set (see "Storing wine bottles
– Bottle presenter").
38
Automatic defrosting
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the appliance while the
compressor is running. These are
automatically removed and defrosted
by the appliance.
The condensate is drained away
through a channel and drain hole, then
fed into an evaporation system at the
back of the appliance.
