IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Installation
This appliance is intended for
residential use only. Only use the
appliance for its intended purpose.
Improper use of the appliance can
lead to personal injury and material
damage. The manufacturer cannot
be held responsible for damages
caused by improper use of the plate
warmer.
This appliance complies with current
safety requirements.
Read all instructions before installing
or using for the first time.
Keep these operating instructions in
a safe place and pass them on to
any future user.
Read all operating and installation
instructions for any other appliance
installed in combination with the
plate warmer.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS!
Before installation make sure that
the voltage and frequency listed on
the data plate correspond with the
household electrical supply. This data
must correspond in order to prevent
injury and machine damage. If in doubt,
consult a qualified technician.
The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity exists between the
appliance and an effective grounding
system. The grounding system must
comply with local and national safety
regulations. 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 the damages caused by
an inadequate grounding system (e.g.
electric shock).
Do not connect the appliance to
the electrical supply with an
extension cord. Extension cords do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance.
This appliance must only be used
once it has been properly installed
into cabinetry to ensure that all
electrical components are protected.
Never open the outer casing of the
appliance.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components and mechanical parts is
dangerous and may cause machine
damage.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Installation, repair and
maintenance work should be
performed by a Miele authorized
service technician. Work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous and may
void the warranty.
Hardwiring the appliance should
be performed by a certified
electrician in compliance with all local
and national codes and requirements.
The manufacturer cannot be held
responsible for the damages caused by
an inadequate electrical connection.
Before installation or service,
disconnect the power supply to the
work area by removing the fuse,
"tripping" the circuit breaker or
unplugging the unit. Pull the plug not
the cord.
Use
The plate warmer interior gets very
hot when in use and stays hot for a
while once turned off.
Use heat-resistant pot holders
when removing dishes. Be sure
that they are not damp or wet. Danger
of steam burns!
Pull the drawer out all the way
when removing dishes to avoid
touching hot drawer parts.
To prevent burns do not touch hot
surfaces, use handles or knobs.
Do not use the plate warmer to
reheat, cook or keep food and
drinks warm. The condensation from
food or drinks could lead to moisture
damage in the appliance.
Do not lean or sit on the warming
drawer. This will damage the
drawer which can hold a maximum of
55 lbs (25 kg).
Do not store anything in the
warming drawer. Forgotten items
could melt or catch fire when the
appliance is turned on. Flammable
liquids and materials should never be
stored in, above or under the plate
warmer.
Do not use the plate warmer to
heat the room. Due to the high
temperatures radiated, objects left near
the appliance could be damaged.
Do not use a steam cleaner to
clean this appliance. Steam could
penetrate electrical components and
cause a short circuit. Pressurized
steam may cause permanent damage
to the surface and to components of
the appliance, for which the
manufacturer cannot accept
responsibility.
To prevent injuries, do not use
accessories not recommended by
Miele.
Do not install outdoors.
Do not let children access the
appliance or its controls. Supervise

Before using the plate warmer
^ Clean the plate warmer with a damp
cloth and wipe dry.
^ Heat the empty plate warmer for a
minimum of 2 hours. Turn the
temperature selector to "Maximum"
(see "Selecting a temperature").
^ Vent the room when heating the
drawer for the first time.
Metal components have a protective
coating which may give off a slight odor
the first time your new appliance is
heated. The smell will dissipate after a
short time and does not indicate a
faulty connection.
7
Use
Controls
The plate warmer is only intended
for warming dishes.
Do not use the plate warmer to
reheat, cook or keep food and drinks
warm. Condensation from food or
drinks may cause moisture damage
to the appliance.
Use pot holders when removing
dishes.
The drawer can hold a maximum of
55 lbs (25 kg).
The appliance works with a convection
system. A fan distributes the heat
evenly throughout the drawer. The air
circulation heats the dishes fast and
evenly.
A protective grill prevents contact with
the heating element and fan.
The floor of the warming drawer has a
non-slip mat to prevent plates and
dishes from sliding when the drawer is
opened and closed.
8
The controls consists of the
temperature selector and the On/Off
button. They are only visible when the
drawer is open.
The indicators at the front show if the
plate warmer is turned on or off.
Use
Operating
Selecting a temperature
^ Place the dishes in the drawer.
The temperature selector allows you to
select a temperature between 86° and
122 °F (30 and 50 °C).
^ Select a temperature.
^ Turn the appliance on (j).
The button will light.
^ Close the drawer.
The drawer may open again if closed
too forcefully.
^ Turn the appliance off (k), before
removing the warmed dishes.
Do not turn the knob
counterclockwise or clockwise past
the 9 o’clock position. Forcing it
beyond these positions will damage
the temperature selector.
When the selected temperature is
reached, the heating element turns off.
If the temperature falls below the
selected one, the heating element will
turn on again.
The temperature scale shows symbols
for the optimum temperature of the
respective dish group:
– b approx. 105 °F (40 °C)
For cups or glasses.
– r approx. 150 °F (60 °C)
For serving or eating plates.
When served in a prewarmed cup,
glass or on a plate, the drinks or food
will not cool as fast and the cup or plate
will remain cool enough to touch.
