Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
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 to prevent injury and
machine damage. Consult a qualified
electrician if in doubt.
The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when
continuity exists between the appliance
and an effective grounding system,
which complies with local and national
safety regulations. It is imperative that
this basic safety requirement is tested
by a qualified electrician. The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for the
consequences of an inadequate
grounding system (e.g. electric shock).
This appliance must only be used
once it has been installed in
cabinetry to ensure that all electrical
components are shielded.
Never open the outer casing of the
appliance.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components and mechanical parts is
dangerous and can cause machine
damage.
5
Warning and Safety instructions
Do not operate any appliance with
a damaged cord or plug or after
the appliance malfunctions or has been
damaged in any manner. Return the appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for service.
Installation, repair and maintenance work should be by a Miele
authorized service technician. Work by
unqualified persons could be dangerous and may void the warranty.
Before installation or service, disconnect the power supply to the
work area by removing the fuse, “tripping” the circuit breaker, or unplugging
the unit.
Do not connect the appliance to
the electricity supply by an extension cord. Extension cords do not guarantee the required safety of the appliance, e.g danger of overheating.
Use
The temperature in the drawer can
reach up to approx. 176 °F (80 °C)
depending on the temperature selected
and how long the appliance has been
on.
Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles
or knobs.
Use heat-resistant oven mitts when removing dishes.
Keep children away from the appliance and its controls. Supervise its
use by the elderly or infirm. The appliance can get very hot during use. Danger of burns!
Ensure that adults understand how
the appliance works before allowing them to use it.
Do not use the plate warmer to
re-heat, cook or keep food or
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 only 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.
To prevent injuries, do not use accessories not recommended by
Miele.
Before cleaning the appliance, trip
the circuit breaker and allow the
appliance to cool.

Warning and Safety instructions
General notes
Disposal of an old appliance
Children should not be left alone or
unattended in an area where an
appliance is in use. They should never
be allowed to sit or stand on any part of
the appliance.
Caution: Do not store items of interest
to children in cabinets above or in the
plate warmer. Children climbing on the
appliance to reach these items could
be seriously injured.
Before discarding an old appliance, disconnect the power cord
and remove any doors to prevent hazards.
Wear proper clothing. Loose-fitting
or hanging garments should never
be worn while using the plate warmer.
Use only dry, heat resistant pot
holders. Moist or damp pot holders
used on hot surfaces may result in
steam burns. Do not substitute towels
or other bulky items for pot holders.
Do not use the appliance to heat
the room. Due to the high temperatures radiated, objects left near the appliance could catch fire.
Under no circumstances use a
steam cleaner to clean this appliance. The steam could penetrate electrical components and cause a short
circuit.
In areas subject to infestation by
cockroaches or other vermin, keep
the appliance and its surroundings
clean at all times. Any damage caused
by pests will not be covered by the appliance warranty.
Do not use outdoors.
7
Using the plate warmer
The plate warmer is only intended for
warming dishes.
Controls
Do not use the plate warmer to
re-heat, cook or keep food or drinks
warm. Condensation from food or
drinks could cause moisture damage to the appliance.
The appliance operates with a hot air
system. A fan distributes hot air to heat
plates quickly and evenly.
A protective grill prevents any contact
with the heating element and fan.
The rail in the drawer separates the
control panel, heating element and fan
from the rest of the drawer. This prevents plates from being placed too
close to the control panel and being
damaged when the drawer is pushed
in.
The floor of the warming drawer has a
non-slip mat to prevent plates and
dishes sliding when the drawer is
opened and closed.
8
The controls consist of the temperature
selector knob and the On/Off button.
These are only visible when the drawer
is open.
Using the plate warmer
Warming dishes
Procedure in brief:
The following loading examples are
given as a guide only.
^ Place the dishes in the warming
drawer.
^ Select the desired temperature setting.
^ Turn on the appliance (j).
^ Close the drawer.
The indicator on the front of the appliance lights up to show that the appliance is on.
^ Turn the appliance off (k), before removing warmed dishes.
Loading the drawer
The quantity which can be loaded will
depend on the type and size of your
dishes.
The maximum load is 55 lbs.
(25 kg.)
Do not stand plates up directly in front
of the rail. When the drawer is closed,
these will block the vents for the heated
air and prevent the dishes from warming evenly.

Using the plate warmer
Selecting a temperature
Warming times
The temperature control is used to adjust the temperature setting.
Various factors will affect the warming
times:
Only turn the temperature control
clockwise and then back again.
Stop when you feel a resistance.
Forcing the control past this point
will damage it.
The heat will shut off automatically
when the selected temperature is
reached. It will turn back on again as
soon as the temperature drops below
the selected temperature.
A temperature range between approximately 86 °F and 176°F (30 °C and
80 °C) can be set.
Recommended temperatures for
pre-heating:
– approximately 104 °F (40 °C)
b for cups and glasses. A hot drink
placed in a cup warmed to this temperature will not cool as fast, while
the cup itself can be touched easily.
– approximately 140 °F (60 °C)
r for serving dishes, bowls and
plates
Food will stay hot longer if placed on
plates heated to this temperature
while the plates will not be too hot to
handle.
10
– material and thickness of dishes,
– quantity,
– how dishes are arranged,
– temperature setting.
As you use the plate warmer you will
learn which settings suit your needs
best.
However, the following information can
be used as a guide:
At temperature setting r of approximately 140 °F (60 °C) heating:
– 6 place settings:
30 - 35 minutes.
– 12 place settings:
40 - 45 minutes.
Cleaning and care
Mat with non-slip surface
Never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, steel wool or caustic
(oven) cleaners on the plate warmer.
They will damage the surface.
Cleaning the exterior
The exterior of the plate warmer can be
cleaned with warm water and liquid
dish soap applied with a soft sponge.
Wipe dry using a soft cloth.
The mat can be removed to clean the
bottom of the drawer.
Clean the mat by hand with some hot
water and liquid dish soap. Dry thoroughly. Do not return the mat until it is
completely dry.
Stainless steel
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using a non-abrasive stainless steel
cleaner.
To help prevent resoiling, a conditioner
for stainless steel can also be used.
Apply with even pressure.
