Technical safety

The coolant system is tested for leaks. This appliance complies with statutory safety requirements and the appropriate EU guidelines.

6

Warning and Safety instructions

This appliance contains the coolant 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 coolant 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 coolant 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 coolant can damage the eyes.

In the event of any damage:

– avoid naked flames or anything which creates a spark,

– disconnect the appliance from the mains electricity supply,

– ventilate the room where the appliance is located for several minutes, and

– contact the Miele Service Department.

The more coolant 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 coolant at least 1 m

3

of room space is required. The amount of coolant 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.

The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when correctly earthed. It is essential that this standard safety requirement is met. If in any doubt please have the electrical installation tested by a qualified electrician.

7

Warning and Safety instructions

Reliable and safe operation of this appliance can only be assured if it has been connected to the mains electricity supply.

If the electrical connection cable is faulty it must only be replaced by a Miele authorised service technician to protect the user from danger.

Do not connect the appliance to the mains electrical supply by a multi-socket adapter or extension lead. These are a fire hazard and do not guarantee the required safety of the appliance.

Do not use in a damp or wet environment (e.g. garage or utility room). Moisture could reach live components or the electrical connection and cause a short circuit.

This appliance must not be used in a non-stationary location (e.g.

on a ship).

Do not use a damaged appliance. It could be dangerous. Check the appliance for visible signs of damage.

The appliance must be isolated from the electricity supply during installation, maintenance and repair work.

Unauthorised installation, maintenance and repairs can cause considerable danger for the user.

Installation, maintenance and repairs must only be carried out by a

Miele authorised technician.

While the appliance is under guarantee, repairs should only be undertaken by a Miele authorised service technician. Otherwise the guarantee is invalidated.

Miele can only guarantee the safety of the appliance when genuine original Miele replacement parts are used. Faulty components must only be replaced by Miele spare parts.

8

Warning and Safety instructions

Correct 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 switching off for longer periods so that it cannot maintain the required temperature.

Do not cover or block the air vents as this could impair the efficiency of the appliance, increase the electricity consumption and could cause damage to the components.

If storing food which contains a lot of fat or oil in the appliance or the door, make sure that it does not come into contact with plastic components as this could cause stress cracks or break the plastic.

Do not store explosive materials in the appliance or any products containing propellants (e.g. spray cans). Electrical components could cause flammable vapours 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.

Do not store cans or bottles containing carbonated drinks or liquids which could freeze in the freezer. The cans or bottles could explode.

Danger of injury and damage to the appliance.

When cooling drinks quickly in the freezer, make sure bottles are not left in for more than one hour; otherwise they could burst, causing injury or damage.

Never handle frozen food or the metal parts of the appliance with wet hands. Your hands may freeze to the frozen food or to the metal.

Danger of frost burn.

9

Warning and Safety instructions

Do not take ice cubes out with your bare hands and never place ice cubes or ice lollies in your mouth straight from the freezer. The very low temperature of the frozen ice or lollies can cause frost burn to the lips and tongue.

Do not refreeze partially or fully defrosted food. Consume defrosted food as soon as possible, as it will lose its nutritional value and spoil if left for too long. Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

Observe the manufacturer's "use-by" dates and storage instructions given on food to avoid the risk of food poisoning. Storage times will depend on several factors, including the freshness and quality of the food, as well as the temperature at which it is stored.

Only use genuine original Miele accessories and spare parts with this appliance. Using accessories or spare parts from other manufacturers will invalidate the guarantee, and Miele cannot accept liability.

Cleaning and care

Do not use any oils or grease on the door seals, as these will cause the seals to deteriorate and become porous with time.

Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean or defrost this appliance.

Steam could reach electrical components and cause a short circuit.

Sharp edged or pointed objects will damage the evaporator, causing irreversible damage to the appliance. Do not use sharp edged or pointed objects to

– remove frost and ice,

– separate frozen foods or remove ice trays.

Do not place electric heaters or candles in the appliance to defrost it. These can damage the plastic parts.

10

Warning and Safety instructions

Do not use defrosting sprays or de-icers, as they could contain substances which could damage the plastic parts or which might cause the build-up of gases and pose a danger to health.

Transporting the appliance

Always transport the appliance in an upright position and in its original transport packaging to avoid damage in transit.

Danger of injury and damage. The appliance is very heavy and must be transported by two people.

Disposal of your old appliance

Before disposing of an old appliance, first make the door latch or lock unusable.

This way you will prevent children from accidentally locking themselves in and endangering their lives.

Splashes of coolant can damage the eyes. Be careful not to damage any part of the pipework whilst awaiting disposal, e.g. by

– puncturing the coolant channels in the condenser,

– bending any pipework, or

– scratching the surface coating.

Symbol on the compressor (depending on model)

This information is only relevant for recycling. In normal operation there is no risk.

The oil in the compressor can be fatal if swallowed or if it penetrates the airways.

11

Caring for the environment

Disposal of the packing material

The packaging is designed to protect the appliance from damage during transportation. The packaging materials used are selected from materials which are environmentally friendly for disposal and should be recycled.

Recycling the packaging reduces the use of raw materials in the manufacturing process and also reduces the amount of waste in landfill sites.

Disposal of your old appliance

Electrical and electronic equipment often contain valuable materials. They also 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. Please do not therefore dispose of it with your household waste.

Please dispose of it at your local community waste collection / recycling centre.

Take care not to damage the pipework at the back of it before or during transportation to an authorised collection depot.

In this way, coolant in the pipework and oil in the compressor will be contained, and will not leak into the environment.

Please ensure that your old appliance presents no danger to children while being stored awaiting disposal. See

"Warning and Safety instructions" for more information.

Switching on and off

Switching off for longer periods of time

If, during a long absence, the appliance is switched off but not cleaned and the door(s) left shut, there is a danger of mould building up inside the appliance.

It is essential to clean the appliance.

If the appliance is not going to be used for a longer period of time, e.g. whilst on holiday:

 switch the appliance off,

 disconnect it from the mains,

 clean the appliance and

 leave the door(s) ajar to air the appliance and avoid odours building up inside the appliance.

It is also advisable to carry out the last two instructions if you are switching the refrigerator section off for a longer period of time.

24

The correct temperature

It is very important to set the correct temperature for storing food in the appliance. Micro-organisms will cause food which is not stored at the correct temperature to deteriorate rapidly. Temperature influences the growth rate of these micro-organisms. Reducing the temperature reduces their growth rate.

The temperature in the appliance will rise:

– the more often the door is opened and the longer it is kept open,

– the more food that is stored in it,

– the warmer the food is which is being put into it,

– the higher the ambient temperature surrounding the appliance. The appliance is designed for use within specific ambient temperatures (climate range). Do not use in ambient temperatures for which it is not designed.

. . . in the refrigerator section

We recommend a temperature of 4 °C in the refrigerator section.

. . . in the freezer section

To freeze fresh food and to store frozen food for a long time, a temperature of

-18 °C is required. At this temperature the growth of micro-organisms is generally halted. As soon as the temperature rises above -10 °C, the micro-organisms become active in the food again so that it cannot be kept as long. For this reason, partially defrosted or fully defrosted food must not be re-frozen.

Food may be re-frozen once it has been cooked, as the high temperatures achieved when cooking destroy most micro-organisms.

25

The correct temperature

Temperature display

Start screen

In normal operation the upper temperature display shows the average, current temperature in the refrigerator section and the lower temperature display the lowest temperature in the freezer section.

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.

If the temperature in the freezer remains above -18 °C for a long time, check that the frozen food has not started to defrost.

If it has, check that the food is safe to use and if it is, then use it as soon as possible or cook it before freezing it again.

Setting the temperature

The temperatures for the refrigerator and freezer sections can be set independently of one another.

 Touch the temperature display for the section you want to change.

Tip: The newly set temperature can also be confirmed and adopted by closing the appliance door.

The temperature display will then change to the current temperature in the appliance.

Temperature range

– The temperature in the refrigerator section can be adjusted from 1 °C to

9 °C.

– The temperature in the freezer section can be adjusted from -15 °C to

-26 °C.

Tip: If you have adjusted the temperature, wait for approx. 6 hours if the appliance is not very full and for approx.

24 hours if the appliance is full before checking the temperature display, as it will take this long for the appliance to give an accurate reading.

 If, after this time, the temperature is still too high or too low, you will need to adjust it again.

Using Super cool, Super freeze and DynaCool

The following functions are available depending on section:

– Refrigerator section

Super cool  and DynaCool 

– Freezer section

Super freeze 

See the following pages for more information on these functions and how to switch them on.

Tip: To save energy, the Super freeze function can be switched off once a constant temperature of -18 °C is reached inside the freezer section.

Check the temperature inside the freezer section.

When Super freeze is switched off, the appliance will run at normal power again.

Super freeze function 

For optimum results switch on the Super freeze function before putting fresh food into the freezer section. This helps food to freeze quickly and retain its nutrients, vitamins, flavours and appearance.

Super freeze is not necessary:

– when placing food in the freezer that is already frozen.

– when freezing up to 2 kg fresh food daily.

When freezing small quantities of food in the freezer, the Super freeze function should be switched on 6 hours beforehand.

When freezing the maximum load of food, the Super freeze function should be switched on 24 hours beforehand.

When Super freeze is switched on, the appliance will work at full power to lower the temperature in the appliance.

The Super freeze function will switch itself off automatically after approx. 65 hours. The quantity of fresh food placed in the freezer will determine the duration before the Super freeze function switches off.

28

Super cool function 

The Super cool function can be used to rapidly reduce the temperature in the refrigerator section to its lowest setting

(depending on the room temperature).

Tip: Super cool is particularly recommended for the rapid chilling of large amounts of fresh food or drink.

When Super cool is switched on, the appliance will work at full power to lower the temperature in the appliance.

It switches itself off automatically after approx. 12 hours.

Tip: To save energy, Super cool can be switched off once food and drinks are sufficiently chilled.

When Super cool is switched off the appliance reverts to working at normal power.

Using Super cool, Super freeze and DynaCool

DynaCool function 

When the DynaCool function is not switched on, the natural circulation of air in the appliance will cause different temperature zones in the refrigerator as the cold, heavy air will sink to the lowest section of the appliance. You should bear this in mind when placing food in the appliance (see "Storing food in the refrigerator section").

However, if you are placing a large amount of food in the refrigerator at any one time, (e.g. after the weekly shop) it is a good idea to switch DynaCool on.

This way you can distribute the temperature inside the appliance to all areas more evenly so that all the food will be chilled to about the same degree.

The temperature is set as normal.

DynaCool should also be selected when:

– the ambient temperature in the room is high (above approx. 30 °C), and

– the room humidity level is high.

With DynaCool switched on, the fan is ready: when the compressor switches on, the fan also switches on automatically.

Tip: Because DynaCool requires more energy, you should switch it off under normal conditions.

To save energy, the fan switches off automatically whilst the door is open.

Temperature and door alarm

The appliance has a warning system which ensures that the temperature in the freezer cannot rise unnoticed and to avoid energy being wasted if a door is left open.

Temperature alarm

If the temperature in the freezer remains above -18 °C for a long time, check that the frozen food has not started to defrost.

If it has, check that the food is safe to use and if it is, then use it as soon as possible or cook it before freezing it again.

If the temperature in the freezer section becomes too warm 

 will light up red in the temperature display for the freezer section.

An alarm will also sound until the cause of the alarm is rectified or the alarm is switched off.

The temperature the appliance is set at determines the temperature the appliance recognises as being too warm.

The temperature alarm is only displayed in the start screen and not when selecting a setting.

A temperature alarm is displayed before an existing door alarm.

The temperature alarm occurs, e.g.

– when the appliance is switched on and the temperature in the freezer section differs greatly from the set temperature,

– if a lot of room air enters the freezer when food is being loaded, re-arranged or taken out,

– when freezing large amounts of food at once,

– in the event of a power cut,

– if the appliance has a fault.

The alarm will stop and 

will go out as soon as the temperature has dropped down to the correct level again.

Switching the temperature alarm off early and checking the warmest temperature

If the alarm disturbs you, you can switch it off early. You can also find out what the warmest temperature was in the freezer section.

Explanation of the different

Settings

Switching Party mode  on or off

This function is particularly useful if you need to cool or freeze large quantities of food and drink quickly and make ice cubes, for example, if you are expecting a large number of guests.

Super cool, DynaCool and Super freeze are switched on automatically:

The refrigerator section as well as the freezer section cool down very rapidly to their lowest temperature (depending on the ambient room temperature).

Tip: Switch the function on approx.

4 hours before placing food in the appliance.

If Party mode cannot be switched on, the refrigerator section has been switched off separately or Holiday mode is switched on.

Party mode will switch off automatically after approx. 20 hours. You can switch it off earlier at any time.

If previously switched on, Party mode will switch off if there is an interruption to the power supply.

35

Selecting further settings

Switch Holiday mode on/off

This function is useful when going on holiday if you do not wish to switch the refrigerator section off completely and do not need a high degree of cooling.

The freezer section remains switched on at -18 °C. The refrigerator section is regulated at a temperature of 15 °C, remaining in operation whilst also saving energy.

Do not store any temperaturesensitive food which goes off easily such as fruit, vegetables, fish, meat and dairy products during this time.

Food which does not go off quickly can be stored in the appliance for some time at this moderate refrigerator section temperature and the energy consumption is lower than in normal operation.

This also prevents the build-up of odours and mould which can occur if the refrigerator section is switched off and the door is closed.

When Holiday mode is switched on, it is displayed in the start screen:

If Holiday mode cannot be switched on, the refrigerator section has been switched off separately.

If Party mode, Super cool or DynaCool are switched on, these will be switched off when Holiday mode is selected.

Storing food in the refrigerator section

Danger of explosion.

Do not store explosive materials in the appliance or any products containing propellants (e.g. spray cans).

If storing food which contains a lot of fat or oil in the appliance or the appliance door, make sure that it does not come into contact with plastic components as this could cause stress cracks or break the plastic.

Different storage zones

Due to natural air circulation there are different temperature zones in the refrigerator section.

Cold, heavy air sinks to the lowest section of the appliance. Make use of the different temperature zones when placing food in the appliance.

To allow air to circulate efficiently, do not pack food too closely together in the refrigerator.

Do not cover the fan in the rear wall of the refrigerator, as this is essential for keeping the appliance cool.

Food must not touch the back of the refrigerator section as it may freeze to the back wall.

This appliance has Dynamic cooling, which helps to keep an even temperature when the fan is running, making the difference between the various zones less pronounced.

Warmest area

The warmest area in the refrigerator section is at the top in the front area and in the door. Use this for storing butter and cheese.

Coldest area

The coldest area is directly above the fruit and vegetable drawer(s) and at the back of the appliance.

Use this for all delicate and highly perishable food, e.g.

– fish, meat, poultry,

– sausage products, ready meals,

– dishes or baked goods containing eggs or cream,

– fresh dough, cake mixtures, pizza or quiche dough,

– soft cheese and other dairy products,

– pre-packed vegetables and other fresh food with a label stating it should be kept at a temperature of approx. 4 °C.

43

Storing food in the refrigerator section

Food which is not suitable for storage in the refrigerator section

Not all food is suitable for refrigeration at temperatures below 5°C as some food is sensitive to cold. The appearance, consistency, taste and / or the vitamin content of certain types of food can be adversely affected by being stored in too cold a place.

Food which does not tolerate cold temperatures includes:

– Pineapples, avocados, bananas, pomegranates, mangoes, melons, papayas, passion fruit, citrus fruits

(such as lemons, oranges, mandarins, grapefruit),

– Fruit which is not yet ripe

– Aubergines/eggplant, cucumbers, potatoes, peppers/capsicum, tomatoes, courgettes/zucchini,

– Some hard cheeses, e.g. Parmesan.

Storing food correctly

Food should generally be stored covered or packaged in the refrigerator section. This will prevent food smells from affecting other food, food from drying out, and also any crosscontamination of bacteria. This is especially important for storing proteinbased food such as meat or fish.

The growth of bacteria, such as salmonella, can be avoided by setting the correct temperature and maintaining good standards of hygiene.

Fruit and vegetables

Fruit and vegetables can be stored loose in the fruit and vegetable drawer(s).

Protein rich food

Please note that food rich in protein deteriorates faster than other types of food. Shellfish, for example, deteriorates faster than fish, and fish deteriorates faster than meat.

When shopping for food

The freshness of food when first placed in the appliance is the most important factor in determining how long it stays fresh, and how long it can be kept in the appliance.

Always observe the use-by date and the recommended storage temperature.

Time out of the refrigerator should be kept to a minimum, for example, when transporting food in a hot car.

Tip: Take a cool bag with you when shopping and on return place food into the appliance immediately.

44

Adjusting the interior fittings (refrigerator section)

Adjusting the door shelf / bottle shelf

 Push the door/bottle shelf upwards, then remove it by pulling it forwards

 Replace the door/bottle shelf at the required position. Ensure that it is securely pushed back into position.

Moving the shelves

The shelves can be adjusted according to the height of the food.

Adjusting or removing the bottle holder

 Raise the shelf, and pull it forwards slightly until the notch at the side is in line with the shelf support. It can then be raised or lowered to the required level.

The raised edge on the protective strip at the back must face upwards to prevent food from touching the back of the appliance and freezing to it.

Stoppers prevent the shelves from being dislodged by mistake.

The bottle holder can be moved left or right to create more room for drink cartons.

The bottle holder can be removed completely (e.g. for cleaning):

 Pull the bottle holder upwards to remove it from the rear edge of the bottle shelf.

The bottle holder can be replaced after cleaning.

45

Adjusting the interior fittings (refrigerator section)

Adjusting the bottle rack

The bottle rack is available as an optional accessory (see "Accessories optional accessories").

The bottle rack can be placed at different positions in the appliance.

 Raise the bottle rack slightly at the front, and pull it forwards a little until the notch at the side is in line with the shelf support. It can then be raised or lowered to the required level.

The rear rail must face upwards to prevent bottles from touching the back of the appliance.

Stoppers prevent the bottle rack from being dislodged by mistake.

Moving the charcoal filters

Charcoal filters and a KKF-FF (Active

AirClean) holder are available as optional accessories (see "Accessories optional accessories").

With very strong smelling food (e.g. very ripe cheese):

– Place the holder with the charcoal filters on the shelf where this food is kept.

– Change the charcoal filters earlier if necessary.

– Use more charcoal filters (with holders) in the appliance (see "Accessories - Optional accessories").

The holder for the charcoal filters sits on the protective strip at the back of the shelf.

 To move the charcoal filters, pull the holder upwards to remove it from the protective strip.

 Refit it on the protective strip of the shelf you wish to use it on.

46

Freezing and storing food

Maximum freezing capacity

To ensure that fresh food placed in the freezer freezes through to the core as quickly as possible, the maximum freezing capacity must not be exceeded. The maximum freezing capacity for freezing within a 24-hour period is given on the data plate: "Freezing capacity ....kg/24 hrs".

The maximum freezing capacity given on the data plate has been calculated according to DIN EN ISO 15502 Standard.

Freezing fresh food

Fresh food should be frozen as quickly as possible. This way the nutritional value of the food, its vitamin content, appearance and taste are not impaired.

Food which takes a long time to freeze will lose more water from its cells, which then shrink. During the defrosting process, only some of this water is reabsorbed by the cells; the rest collects around the food.

If food is frozen quickly, the cells have less time to lose moisture, so they shrink less. As there is not so much moisture loss, it is easier for the food to reabsorb it during the defrosting process, and very little water collects around the defrosted food.

Storing frozen food

When buying frozen food to store in your freezer, check

– that the packaging is not damaged,

– the use-by date,

– the temperature at which the frozen food is being stored in the shop. The length of time it can be kept is reduced if it has been stored at a temperature warmer than -18 °C.

 Buy frozen food once you have finished the rest of your shopping, and wrap it in newspaper or use a cool bag or cool box to transport it.

 Store it in the freezer section as soon as possible.

Never re-freeze partially or fully defrosted food. Consume defrosted food as soon as possible as it will lose its nutritional value and spoil if left for too long. Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

47

Freezing and storing food

Home freezing

Only freeze fresh food which is in a good condition.

Hints on home freezing

– The following types of food are suitable for freezing:

Fresh meat, poultry, game, fish, vegetables, herbs, fresh fruit, dairy products, cakes, leftovers, egg yolks, egg whites and a range of precooked meals.

– The following types of food are not suitable for freezing:

Grapes, lettuce, radishes, sour cream, mayonnaise, eggs in their shells, onions, whole raw apples and pears.

– To retain colour, taste, aroma and vitamin C, vegetables should be blanched after they have been trimmed and washed. To blanch: bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, immerse the vegetables in the fast boiling water for 2 -

 3 minutes, depending on variety. Remove, and plunge into ice-cold water to cool quickly. Drain and pack ready for freezing.

– Lean meat freezes better than fatty meat, and can be stored for considerably longer.

– To prevent chops, steaks, cutlets or rolled meat from freezing together in solid blocks when packed, separate with a sheet of plastic freezer film.

– Do not season fresh foods or blanched vegetables before freezing.

Only season cooked food lightly before freezing, but care should be taken as the taste of some spices alters when frozen.

– Placing hot foods or drinks in the freezer causes food that is already frozen to partially thaw and increases energy consumption. Allow hot foods and drinks to cool down before placing them in the freezer.

Packaging

 Freeze food in portions.

Suitable packing material

– plastic freezer film

– freezer bags

– aluminium foil

– freezer containers

Unsuitable packing material

– wrapping paper

– grease-proof paper

– cellophane

– bin bags

– plastic carrier bags

 Expel as much air as possible from the packaging.

 Close the packaging tightly with

– rubber bands

– plastic clips

– string or bag ties

– freezer tape.

Tip: Freezer bags may also be sealed using home heat sealing kits.

48

Freezing and storing food

 Make a note of the contents and the date of freezing on the packaging.

Before placing food in the freezer section

 When freezing more than 2 kg of fresh food, switch on the Super freeze function for some time before placing the food in the freezer (see

"Using Super cool and Super freeze -

Super freeze function").

This helps food which is already stored in the freezer to stay frozen.

Placing food in the freezer section

The following maximum loading weights must not be exceeded:

– freezer drawer = 25 kg

– glass cold plate = 35 kg

- Freezing the maximum amount (see data plate)

Ensure ventilation slots at the back of the freezer section are always free from obstruction.

If the ventilation slots are blocked the cooling performance will decrease and energy consumption will increase.

Place food on the glass plate in such a way that the ventilation slots are not blocked.

Please note that when removing the drawers, the lowest freezer drawer must always remain in the freezer.

Unfrozen food should not touch frozen food as this will cause frozen food to begin to thaw.

 Make sure that the packaging and containers are dry to prevent them sticking together when frozen.

- Freezing small amounts of food

Place the food in the upper freezer drawers.

 Place the food flat in the bottom of the freezer drawer so that it freezes through to the core as quickly as possible.

 Remove the upper freezer drawers.

 Place the food flat on the upper glass cold plates so that it freezes through to the core as quickly as possible.

Once frozen:

 Place the frozen food in the freezer drawer and push it back in.

49

Freezing and storing food

Storage time for frozen food

The storage life of food is very variable, even at a constant temperature of

-18 °C. Decomposition processes also take place in frozen food, albeit at a very reduced speed. For example fat can become rancid from contact with oxygen in the air. This is why lean meat can be stored approx. twice as long as fatty meat.

The storage times quoted are guide values for the storage life of different food groups in the freezer section.

Defrosting

Frozen food can be defrosted in different ways:

– in a microwave oven,

– in an oven using "Fan heat" or the

"Defrost" setting,

– at room temperature,

– in the refrigerator section (the cold given off by the frozen food helps to keep the other food cold),

– in a steam oven.

Flat pieces of partially thawed fish can be placed directly into a hot frying pan.

Meat and poultry It is particularly important to observe food hygiene rules when defrosting poultry. Do not use the liquid from defrosted poultry. Pour it away and wash the container it was in, the sink and your hands. Danger of salmonella poisoning. Ensure that meat and fish (e.g. mince, chicken, fish fillets) do not come into contact with other foods while defrosting. Catch the liquid and dispose of it carefully.

Fruit should be defrosted at room temperature in its packaging, or in a covered bowl.

Most vegetables can be cooked while still frozen. Just put straight into boiling water or hot fat. The cooking time is slightly less than that of fresh vegetables due to changes in the cell structure.

50

Freezing and storing food

Never re-freeze partially or fully defrosted food. Consume defrosted food as soon as possible as it will lose its nutritional value and spoil if left for too long. Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

Using accessories

Ice cubes

Cooling drinks quickly

To cool drinks quickly in the refrigerator section, switch on the Super cool function.

If you want to cool a large amount of drinks, or if you want to cool drinks in the freezer section, select the Party mode  function in Settings mode .

When cooling drinks quickly in the freezer, make sure bottles are not left in for more than one hour; otherwise they could burst.

Tip: To avoid forgetting about bottles placed in the freezer you can set the minute minder (QuickCool timer ) in

Settings mode.

 Fill the ice cube tray three quarters full of water and place it on the bottom of one of the freezer drawers.

 Once frozen, use a blunt instrument, for example a spoon handle, to remove the ice tray from the freezer if it is stuck.

Tip: Ice cubes can be removed easily from the tray by twisting the tray gently or by holding it under cold running water for a short time.

Adjusting the interior fittings

Removing the drawers and glass plates from the freezer section

The drawers can be removed for filling, emptying or cleaning purposes.

You can also use the space in the freezer section more flexibly. If you wish to freeze large items such as a turkey or game, the glass cold plates between the drawers can be removed.

 Pull out the drawers as far as they will go, and then lift them up and out.

 Lift the glass plate slightly, pull it forwards and out.

51

Defrosting

Refrigerator section

The refrigerator section defrosts automatically.

Condensate and frost can build up on the back wall of the refrigerator section whilst the compressor is running. You do not need to remove this, as it will defrost and evaporate automatically with the warmth generated by the compressor.

The condensate is drained away through a channel and drain hole, then fed into an evaporation system at the back of the appliance.

Condensate must be able to drain away unhindered at all times.

Keep the condensate channel and drain hole clean to enable this.

Freezer section

The appliance is equipped with a "Frost free" system. The freezer defrosts automatically.

The moisture generated in the appliance collects on the condenser and is automatically defrosted and dissipated from time to time.

This automatic defrosting system enables the freezer to remain permanently ice-free, however, the food stored in the freezer will not defrost.

52

Do not let water get into the electronic unit or the lighting.

Steam from a steam cleaning appliance could reach the electrical components and cause a short circuit.

Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean the appliance.

Cleaning water must not get into the drain hole.

The data plate located inside the appliance must not be removed. It contains information which is required in the event of a service call.

 Place the shelf on a worktop covered with a soft material (e.g. on a tea towel).

 First pull the plastic trim off, starting from one side.

 Then pull the protective strip off.

 After cleaning the shelf reattach the plastic trim and the protective strip.

54

Cleaning and care

Cleaning the interior and accessories

Clean the appliance at least once a month.

Remove soiling immediately to prevent it from drying on.

 Clean the interior with a clean sponge, lukewarm water and a little washing-up liquid.

 After cleaning, wipe with clean water and dry with a soft cloth.

The plastic trim on the bottle and door shelves and on the adjustable shelves is not suitable for cleaning in a dishwasher.

Remove the trim before cleaning the door shelves and adjustable shelves in a dishwasher.

The following parts cannot be cleaned in a dishwasher:

– the plastic trim

– all drawers and the compartment lid

(depending on model)

– the bottle rack

 These accessories should all be hand washed.

55

Cleaning and care

The following parts are suitable for cleaning in a dishwasher:

The maximum temperature of the dishwashing programme selected must not exceed 55 °C.

Contact with natural dyes e.g. from carrots, tomatoes and ketchup may discolour the plastic parts in the dishwasher. This discolouration does not affect the stability of the parts.

– the bottle holder, ice cube tray

(depending on model)

– the shelves and bottle shelf in the door (with plastic trim removed)

– the adjustable shelves (with the trim/ strips removed and without the printing)

 Clean the condensate channel and drain hole frequently so that condensate can drain away unhindered.

Use a straw or similar to clear the drain if necessary.

 Leave the doors open to air the appliance for a short while and to prevent odours building up.

Cleaning appliance doors and side panels

If soiling is left on for any length of time, it may become impossible to remove.

Surfaces may suffer discolouration or damage.

Therefore it is best to remove soiling from appliance doors and side panels immediately.

All surfaces are susceptible to scratching. Contact with unsuitable cleaning agents can alter or discolour the surfaces.

See "Cleaning agents" at the beginning of this section.

 The surfaces should be cleaned using a solution of hot water and a little washing-up liquid applied with a soft sponge. They can also be cleaned with a damp microfibre cloth (without using any cleaning agent).

 After cleaning, wipe with clean water and dry with a soft cloth.

Cleaning the ventilation gaps

A build-up of dust will increase the energy consumption of the appliance.

 The ventilation gaps should be cleaned on a regular basis with a brush or vacuum cleaner (e.g. use the dusting brush for Miele vacuum cleaners)

56

Cleaning and care

Cleaning the compressor and metal grille at the back of the appliance

When cleaning the compressor and the grille, make sure that the pipework and other components do not get broken or damaged in any way.

Cleaning the door seals

If a door seal is damaged or if it has come out of the groove, the door will not close properly and cooling performance will be reduced.

Condensate will build up in the interior and this can cause a build-up of ice.

Do not damage door seals and ensure that they do not come out of their groove.

The compressor and metal grille at the back of the appliance (heat exchanger) should be dusted at least once a year. A build-up of dust will increase the energy consumption of the appliance.

Do not use any grease or oil on door seals as these will cause them to deteriorate and become porous over time.

 Door seals should be cleaned regularly with clean water, and then wiped dry with a soft cloth.

57

Cleaning and care

After cleaning

 Replace all shelves and accessories in the appliance.

 Reconnect to the mains and switch the appliance back on.

75

Installation

Building the appliance into a kitchen run

If the ventilation gaps given are not observed, the compressor will run more frequently and for longer periods.

This will result in increased energy consumption and a higher operating temperature for the compressor. This may, in turn, cause damage to the compressor.

It is essential to observe the ventilation gaps given.

The appliance can be built into a kitchen run and installed directly next to a kitchen furniture housing unit. The appliance door must protrude in front of furniture fronts by at least 65 mm. This enables the doors to be opened and shut without being obstructed. To match the height of the rest of the kitchen, the appliance can be fitted with a suitable top box .

When installed next to a wall  a distance of approx. 40 mm must be maintained on the hinge side between the wall  and the appliance , so that the doors and the handles have sufficient space for opening.

The larger the ventilation gap, the more economically the compressor will work.

– A ventilation gap of at least 50 mm depth must be provided behind the whole width of the top box for air to circulate.

– The cross-section of the air inlet and outlet under the ceiling must be at least 300 cm
