been safely installed.
only be performed by a trained
technician in accordance with national
and local safety regulations. Repairs
and other work by unauthorized
persons could be dangerous and may
void the warranty.
~ A damaged coffee system can be
dangerous. Before installing the coffee
machine, check for externally visible
damage. Do not operate a damaged
unit.
~ 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. The manufacturer cannot be
held responsible for damages caused
by the lack, or inadequacy, of an
effective grounding system.
~ To prevent damage to the coffee
machine, make sure that the
connection data on the data plate (fuse
rating, voltage and frequency) matches
the electrical power supply. Check this
before connecting the machine.
If in doubt, contact a qualified
electrician.
~ Do not use an extension cord to
connect the appliance to electricity.
Extension cords do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance
(danger of overheating).
6
~ If the machine is installed in
combination with other appliances, a
protective base should be installed
between the appliance and the unit.
~ The coffee machine must not be
used in mobile installations such as
boats.
~ Only use the coffee machine in
ambient temperatures between
+50°F/10°C and +100°F/38 °C.
~ Ensure that there is sufficient
ventilation around the coffee machine.
The ventilation openings in the
surrounding cabinets and the space
below the ceiling must be at least
78 3/4"2 (200 cm2). Otherwise
condensation can form, causing
damage to the coffee machine or the
surrounding cabinets.
~ Do not place on or near a hot gas or
electric burner, or in a heated oven.
~ If the coffee machine is installed in a
closed kitchen cabinet, use the coffee
machine only when the cabinet door is
open. Do not close the cabinet door
when the coffee machine is in
operation.
~ The water supply must be
accessible after installation.
~ Only use Miele original spare parts.
Only then can the manufacturer
guarantee the safety of this machine.
~ Do not damage or kink the cover of
the water intake hose.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
~ The integrated waterproof system
will effectively protect the machine from
water damage if the following
conditions are met:
– The coffee machine is installed
correctly (electricity and water
supply).
– The coffee machine is immediately
repaired if any damage is detected.
– The water supply is shut off during
extended periods of non-use (e.g.
vacation).
~ Before service or maintenance
disconnect the power supply by either
removing the fuse, “tripping” the circuit
breaker or unplugging the unit.
~ Never open the outer casing of the
appliance. Tampering with electrical
connections or components and
mechanical parts is dangerous and
may cause machine damage.
~ Do not operate any appliance with a
damaged cord or plug, or after the
appliance malfunctions or has been
damaged in any manner. Contact
Miele.
~ Always attach the cord to the
appliance first, then plug it into the wall
outlet. To disconnect, turn the machine
off, then remove the plug from the wall
outlet.
~ To protect against fire, electric
shock and injury to persons do not
immerse cord, plugs, or coffee machine
in water or other liquid.
Proper use
,The coffee and hot water
dispensers present a danger of
burning or scalding!
The dispensed liquids and steam
are extremely hot.
The water in the drip tray may be
very hot as well. Be careful when
emptying it.
Please note:
– Keep away from the areas under the
coffee and hot water dispensers
when beverages or steam are being
dispensed.
– Do not touch hot surfaces. Use
handles or knobs.
– The spouts can spray hot liquid or
steam. Be sure the main dispenser is
fitted correctly and only use it if it is
clean.
,Never look into the lighting
directly or with an optical
instrument.
~ Do not use the coffee machine to

drape cord over the counter top or
table top where it can be pulled on by
children or tripped over unintentionally.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
~ Please note the following regarding
water:
– Without a plumbed water supply:
Only fill the water tank with cold,
fresh tap water. Hot water or other
liquids can damage the coffee
system.
– Change the water every day to
prevent a build-up of bacteria.
When using a plumbed water supply:
Empty the water tank once a day.
– Do not use mineral water. Mineral
water will cause a lot of limescale to
build up in your coffee system and
damage it.
– Do not use water from reverse
osmosis units. This could damage
the appliance.
~ Fill the bean container with roasted
whole coffee beans only. Do not fill the
bean container with coffee beans which
have been treated or with ground
coffee.
~ Sugar will destroy the system! Do
not use coffee beans which have been
treated with caramel, sugar, etc. or fill
the coffee system with other liquids that
contain sugar.
~ Do not fill anything into the ground
coffee chute except ground coffee or a
Miele cleaning tablet for degreasing the
brew unit.
~ Only use plain milk. Most additives
contain sugar, which will clog the milk
pipework and damage the coffee
system.
~ If you use dairy milk, use only
pasteurized milk.
8
~ Do not lean on the open coffee
machine door, or apply any pressure to
it. Otherwise, the coffee machine could
be damaged.
~ The use of accessory attachments
not recommended by the appliance
manufacturer may result in fire, electric
shock or injury to persons.
~ Please note the following with
regard to cleaning the coffee machine:
– Before cleaning and maintenance
switch off the appliance and
disconnect circuit breaker.
– Clean the coffee system and milk
container daily (see "Cleaning and
care").
– The steam dispensed by a steam
cleaner can reach the electrical
components and cause a short
circuit.
Never use a steam cleaner to clean
the coffee machine.
– Descale the coffee machine regularly
with the appropriate number of Miele
descaling tablets for the water
hardness level in your area. Descale
the machine more frequently in areas
with very hard water.
– Degrease the brew unit regularly with
the supplied Miele cleaning tablets.
Depending on the natural oil content
of the coffee used, the brew unit can
become blocked quite quickly.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
For machines with stainless
steel trim:
~ Do not use sticky notes, transparent
adhesive tape, masking tape or other
types of adhesive on the surface of the
trim. These damage the surface,
causing it to lose its dirt repellent
protective coating.
~ The surface of the stainless steel
trim is susceptible to scratching. Even
magnets can cause scratches to
appear.
Preparing your appliance for
an extended vacation
~ If you elect to turn off the water to
your home for an extended period of
time, please note that this may not be
enough to reduce the risk of a leak.
To be completely safe, you must turn
off the water supply to each individual
appliance. This means under the sink
for a dishwasher, at the laundry bib for
your washer, etc.

Electrical connection
Make sure that the power to the
machine is OFF before installing or
performing maintenance or repairs.
WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
GROUNDED
Important
All electrical work should be
performed by a qualified electrician
in strict accordance with national
and local safety regulations.
Installation, repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous.
Verify that the voltage, load and circuit
rating information found on the data
plate match the household electrical
supply before installing the coffee
system.
Do not connect the appliance to a
power inverter or directly to power
produced outside of the normal
electrical grid (i.e. direct solar or wind
power source).
Direct connection to such power
sources can cause power surges and
tripped breakers when the appliance is
turned on, and could damage the
appliance.
Do not connect the appliance to energy
saving plugs or outlets. The reduction
of power to the appliance caused by
these devices will cause the appliance
to run hot and may damage it and/or
shorten its usable life.
If there is any question concerning the
electrical connection of this appliance
to your power supply, please consult a
licensed electrician or contact Miele’s
Technical Service Department. See
back page for contact information.

power supply.
Installation
Installation and combination options
The unit is designed to be built into cabinetry.
79
Installation
A combination with other built-in Miele appliances is possible. For combination
installations, it is very important to install the unit with a protective base between
the appliance and the unit (exception: installation with a built-in plate warmer).
80
Installation
Ventilation
When installing the coffee machine,
make sure that the back of the unit is
sufficiently ventilated so that steam and
hot air can freely escape.
The ventilation openings in the
surrounding cabinets and the space
below the ceiling must be at least
78 3/4"² (200 cm²).
Otherwise condensation can form,
causing damage to the coffee machine
or the surrounding cabinets.
Installation
^ If there is no sealing strip around the
installation recess, stick the Miele
sealing strip onto the unit from the
back before putting it into the recess.
The sealing strip is available from
Miele.
Make sure that power is not
supplied to the appliance during
installation or removal of the unit.
When built into cabinetry, only use
the coffee machine in ambient
temperatures between +50°F/10°C
and +100°F/38 °C.
You will need two Allen wrenches
size 3 and 5 for the installation.
To align the unit door flush with the
kitchen cabinetry, there must be a
sealing strip around the installation
recess; otherwise, a sealing strip must
be put in place around the unit.
81
Installation
Tip: A place to set down the coffee
machine at the level of the installation
recess is helpful. This makes it easier
for you to install the unit's electrical and
water connections.
^ Unscrew the four feet on the
underside of the unit by about 1/16"
(2 mm) using the larger Allen wrench.
The feet can be unscrewed by up to
3/8" (10 mm).

(see "Plumbing").
^ Connect the unit to the electrical
supply.
^ Insert the coffee machine all the way
into the installation recess.
When inserting the unit into the
recess, make sure the electrical and
water supply connections are not
damaged.

four M5 Allen head screws that you can
use to align and fasten the unit in the
installation recess.
^ Open the door and partially tighten
the screws.
^ Align the unit by carefully adjusting
the lower Allen head screws until the
unit is centered in the installation
recess.
^ To secure the unit in the cabinet,
tighten the upper Allen head screws
by hand.
Installation
