Disposal of your old appliance
or machine
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 /
machines 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 or machine. Therefore,
please do not dispose of your old
machine or appliance 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.
It should be unplugged or disconnected
from the mains electricity supply by a
competent person.
The plug must be rendered useless
and the cable cut off directly behind the
appliance or the machine to prevent
misuse.

11
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Repairs and installation work by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for unauthorised
work. Installation work and repairs to electrical appliances must only
be carried out by a Miele approved service technician.
~ A damaged appliance is dangerous. Check it for any visible
damage. Never install or attempt to use a damaged 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 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.
~ Do not connect the appliance to the mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket unit or an extension lead. These do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
~ For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used when it has
been built in.
~ If the coffee machine is to be built in above another appliance,
there must be a full-width, closed shelf between them (except in
combination with a built-in plate warmer).
~ This appliance must not be installed and operated in mobile
installations (e.g. on a ship).
12
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Only use the coffee machine in rooms where the ambient
temperature is between +10 °C und +38 °C.
~ Ensure that there is sufficient ventilation around the coffee
machine. The ventilation cut-out area in the furniture unit and the
space underneath the ceiling must amount to at least 200 cm2.
Otherwise condensate may form and the appliance or the furniture
unit may be damaged.
~ If the coffee machine is installed behind a kitchen furniture door,
it may only be used with the furniture door open. Do not close the
furniture door while the coffee machine is in use.
~ The manufacturer's warranty will be invalidated if the appliance is
not repaired by a Miele approved service technician.
~ Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele
Original spare parts. The manufacturer can only guarantee the
safety of the appliance when Miele replacement parts are used.
~ Before any repair work is carried out, the appliance must be
completely disconnected from the electricity supply.The appliance
is only completely isolated from the electricity supply when:
– the mains fuse is disconnected, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in countries where this is
applicable), or
– it is switched off at the wall socket and the plug is withdrawn from
the socket, or it is switched off at the isolator.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Tampering with electrical connections or components and
mechanical parts is highly dangerous to the user and can cause
operational faults. Do not open the outer casing of the appliance.
~ Use only Miele Original accessories. If accessories from other
manufacturers are used, the warranty will be invalidated, and Miele
cannot accept liability.
Correct use
, There is a danger of burning and scalding from the coffee
and hot water dispensing spouts.
The liquids and steam dispensed are very hot.
Water in the drip tray can also be very hot. Exercise caution when
emptying the drip tray.
Please note:
– Keep well away from the area underneath the central spout and
the hot water spouts when hot liquids and steam are being
dispensed.
– Do not touch hot components.
– Hot liquid or steam could spatter from the nozzles. Ensure that the
central spout is clean and fitted correctly.
, Never look directly at the lighting or use optical instruments to
look at it.
~ The machine must not be used for cleaning objects.
~ Clean the coffee machine and the milk flask before using for the
first time (see "Cleaning and care").
14
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Please note the following regarding water:
– Fill the water container only with fresh, cold tap water. Hot water or
other liquids could damage the machine.
– Change the water every day to prevent a build-up of bacteria.
– Do not use mineral water. Mineral water will cause serious
limescale deposits to build up in your machine and damage it.
– Do not use water from reverse osmosis units. The machine could
be damaged.
~ Only fill the bean container with roasted espresso or coffee
beans. Do not fill the bean container with coffee beans which have
been treated or with ground coffee.
~ Do not use coffee beans which have been treated with caramel,
sugar or other substances. Sugar will damage the coffee machine.
~ Only add ground coffee or cleaning tablets to the ground coffee
chute.
~ Do not use milk with additives. Sugar additives will adhere to the
milk pipework and damage the machine.
~ If using cow's milk, only use pasteurised milk to prevent a
build-up of bacteria in the appliance.
~ Do not place any alcohol mixtures which are alight underneath
the central spout. The flames could ignite plastic components and
cause them to melt.
~ Never swing from or hang anything on the appliance front when it
is open as this could damage the machine.
15
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Please note the following with regard to cleaning the coffee
machine:
– It is important to switch off the coffee machine before any cleaning
or maintenance.
– Clean the coffee machine and the milk flask daily (see "Cleaning
and care").
– Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance.
Pressurised steam could reach the electrical components and
cause a short circuit.
– Descale the coffee machine regularly using 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. Miele cannot be held liable for damage arising from
insufficient descaling.
– Degrease the brew unit regularly with Miele cleaning tablets.
Depending on the natural oil content of the coffee used, the brew
unit can become blocked quite quickly.
The following applies to appliances with stainless steel
surfaces:
~ Do not adhere stickers, adhesive tape or any other adhesive
materials to stainless steel surfaces. The coating on the stainless
steel surfaces will become damaged and lose its protective
properties against soiling.
~ Stainless steel scratches very easily and even magnets can
cause damage to the surface.

Coffee the way you like it
In order to customise the coffee
machine to the type of coffee being
used, you can change the amount of
coffee to be ground in the "Parameters"
, menu, set the brewing temperature
or select the "Pre-brewing" option.
This can be done for each individual
drink.
You can also adjust the grinder setting
to suit the type of coffee you are using.
Grinder setting
To avoid damaging the grinder,
please note the following:
Only adjust the grinder one setting
at a time.
Grind the coffee beans again if you
want to adjust the grinder to the next
setting.
^ Open the appliance door.
When the beans are ground correctly,
the coffee or espresso will flow evenly
into the cup with a good crema.
The crema should have an even
nut-brown colour.
There are various ways to tell whether
the coffee grinder is set correctly.
The coffee has been too coarsely
ground if:
– The crema is very pale and uneven.
^ Push the slide control one setting to
the left (for finer grinding) or one
setting to the right (for coarser
grinding).
Set a finer grinder setting.
^ Close the appliance door.
The coffee has been too finely ground
if:
^ Dispense a coffee.
– Espresso or coffee flows into the cup
too quickly.
– Espresso or coffee only trickles into
the cup.
– The crema is dark brown.
Set a coarser grinder setting.
30
Then you can adjust the grinder setting
with the slide control again.

Brewing temperature
The ideal brewing temperature will
depend on
– the type of coffee,
Amount of coffee
The coffee machine can grind and
brew 6-14 g of coffee per cup. The
greater the quantity, the stronger the
coffee or espresso.
There are various ways to tell whether
the amount of coffee is set correctly.
The amount of coffee is too low if:
– Espresso or coffee flows into the cup
too quickly.
– The crema is very pale and uneven.
– The espresso or coffee lacks body.
Increase the amount of coffee so that
more ground coffee is brewed.
The amount of coffee is too high if:
– Espresso or coffee only trickles into
the cup.
– whether an espresso or a coffee is
being prepared, and
– the altitude of the region.
If the coffee machine is located at more
than 2000 metres above sea level, the
brewing temperature needs to be set
lower due to the change in pressure.
This is because the boiling point for
water at a high altitude above sea level
is lower than the boiling point for water
at sea level.
The coffee machine has five brewing
temperatures.
Tip: Not all types of coffee can
withstand a high temperature. Certain
types are too delicate - the crema on
top would not be as good and the taste
would be impaired.
– The crema is dark brown.
– The espresso or coffee tastes bitter.
Decrease the amount of coffee so that
less ground coffee is brewed.

Changing the portion size
The flavour of the coffee produced
depends on the type of coffee, how
finely the beans are ground and the
quantity of water used.
You can programme the quantity of
water according to the size of your
cups and the type of coffee you are
using.
For coffee drinks that use milk you can
also set the amount of milk or milk froth
to be dispensed with these drinks.
Additionally, you can set the portion
sizes for hot milk and milk froth alone.
Each type of drink has a maximum
portion size that can be programmed
into the machine. The coffee machine
halts preparation of the coffee once this
portion size has been reached. The
maximum possible portion size for this
type of drink is then saved in the
machine.
The changed portion size is always

^ First pull the air suction tube a out of
the opening c. Then pull off the
elbow connector b.
^ Pull both tubes out of the elbow
connector.
^ Clean the air suction tube a using
the cleaning brush supplied. You can
also loosen blockages by blowing air
through the tube.
^ Clean the opening in the door for the
air suction tube c.
^ Clean the elbow connector b under
running water. If necessary, you can
replace it with the spare part
supplied with the machine.
^ Open the service flap on the back of
the appliance door.
72
^ Insert the brush in the milk tube d.
Move the brush back and forth as far
as possible until all milk residues
have been removed.
Cleaning the milk pipework of any blockages
Step 4: Conditioning the milk

connector and refit this in the
machine. Make sure the rounded end
of the elbow connector is facing
downwards.
^ Re-insert the air suction tube in the
opening c.
The milk valve will move into the
maintenance position.
Important! Before confirming "Leave
maintenance position" with "OK", you
must remove the cleaning brush.
Otherwise the coffee machine will be
damaged.
Step 3: Cleaning the milk
pipework in the central spout
^ Remove and dismantle the spout unit
as described in "Cleaning and care Central spout".
^ Rinse all parts carefully under
running water.
Carefully clean all parts with the
cleaning brush. Do not use a pin or
other sharp object to pierce the
silicone components.
^ Reassemble the spout unit and refit it
in the central spout.
^ Then refit the cover.
^ Insert the brush in the milk valve and
move it back and forth.
^ Touch the OK sensor.
The milk valve will move into the initial
position and the milk pipework will be
rinsed.

After sales service
In the event of a fault which you cannot
correct yourself, please contact Miele.
The telephone number and address
for Miele are given on the back page.
When contacting Miele, please quote
the model and serial number of your
appliance. This information is given on
the data plate inside your appliance.
Warranty
The warranty for this appliance is 2
years.
For further information, please refer to
your warranty booklet.
74
Saving energy
If the settings of the following functions
are altered from the factory default,
energy consumption will increase:
– Eco mode
– Lighting
– Time of day display
– Timer
If the settings are altered, the message
"This setting uses more energy"
appears in the display.
75
Electrical connection
The appliance is supplied with a mains
connection cable and plug for
connection to AC 50 Hz, 230 V.
The fuse rating must be at least 10 A.
Connection must only be made via a
suitable switched socket.
The socket should be easily accessible.
If the mains socket is not accessible
after the appliance has been built in, a
separator for each terminal must be
present. There must be an all-pole
contact gap of 3 mm in the switch.
The necessary connection information
is given on the data plate inside your
appliance.
Ensure that this data matches the
voltage and frequency of your
household mains supply.
Do not connect the appliance to an
inverter such as those used with an
autonomous energy source e.g. Solar
power. When switched on, peak loads
in the system can cause the safety
switch-off mechanism to be triggered.
This can damage the electronic unit.
The machine must not be used with
so-called energy saving devices
either. These reduce the amount of
energy supplied to the machine,
causing it to overheat.
76
Installation
Building-in and combination options
The appliance is designed to be built into a tall unit.
It can also be combined with other Miele built-in appliances. If the coffee machine
is to be built in above another appliance, there must be a full-width, closed shelf
between them. Exception: When built in above a warming drawer.
77
Installation
Ventilation
During installation, ensure there is
sufficient ventilation at the rear of the
appliance so that steam and warm air
are able to escape without hindrance.
To ensure the appliance door is flush
with the furniture front, a seal around
the building-in niche is needed or a
sealing strip must be adhered to the
appliance.
The ventilation area in the furniture
unit and the space underneath the
ceiling must amount to at least
200 cm².
Otherwise condensate may form and
the appliance or the furniture unit may
be damaged.
Installation
Before installation, make sure that
there is no power supply to the
machine. This also applies should it
ever need to be taken out of its
housing unit.
The machine may only be operated
when built-in and in an ambient
temperature range between +15 °C
to +38 °C.
You will need two Allen keys (size 3
and 5) for installing the machine.
78
^ If there is not a seal around the
building-in niche, adhere the Miele
sealing strips from the back (see
picture) before installing the coffee
machine.
The sealing strips can be purchased
from Miele.
Installation
Tip: We recommend providing a place
to sit the coffee machine which is the
same height as the building-in niche.
This will make it easier to connect the
machine to the electricity supply.
^ Using the large allen key, unscrew all
four feet out by about 2 mm.
The feet can be unscrewed by up to
approx. 10 mm.
^ Open the appliance door, and
partially tighten the side socket
screws.
^ Carefully turn the lower socket
screws to centre the machine in the
niche.
^ Tighten both upper socket screws by
hand to secure the machine in the
unit. Do not overtighten them.
^ Connect the appliance to the
electricity supply.
^ Push the coffee machine all the way
into the building-in niche.
Ensure the mains connection cable
doesn't get damaged when pushing
the appliance into the niche.
^ Check the height to make sure the
coffee machine is sitting centrally in
the unit and that it is level. If this is
not the case, realign the 4 feet
underneath the machine using the
large allen key.
The appliance comes with four M5
socket screws to help you align and
secure it in the building-in niche.
79
Installation
Adjusting the door hinges
If the machine door becomes difficult to
open or close after installation, you can
adjust the hinges to realign it:
^ Tighten the screw a to align it flush
with the furniture front.
^ Tighten the screw b to align the door
horizontally and vertically.
