13
Alarm
The appliance is equipped with an
alarm system, to ensure that the
temperature does not rise unnoticed
because of energy loss or an open
door.
The alarm system is always
operational, it does not need to be
turned on.
Temperature alarm
If the temperature becomes too warm,
an alarm sounds, the "alarm" indicator
turns red and flashes. At the same time
the affected zone flashes in the display.
If you use the Home Security
System, a temperature alarm will
also trigger your security alarm.
Once the temperature alarm is
turned off, the security alarm will
also shut off.
The alarm will sound and the display
will flash if:
– too much warm air flows into the
appliance, for example when bottles
are being loaded, re-arranged, or
unloaded.
– a large number of bottles are being
stored for the first time.
– the power fails.
As soon as the alarm condition is
corrected, the alarm signal turns off
and the affected zone stops flashing in
the display. The "alarm" indicator goes
out.
14
Turning the temperature alarm Off
^ To turn the alarm off early, press
the "alarm" sensor button.
The alarm signal turns off. The "alarm"
indicator remains red and the
corresponding appliance zone
continues to flash until the alarm
condition is corrected.
Door alarm
If the appliance door is left open for
over 5 minutes, an alarm signal will
sound and the "alarm" indicator will light
up.
Once the door is shut again the alarm
will stop and the 'alarm' indicator will go
out.
Turning the door alarm Off
^ To turn the alarm off early, press
the "alarm" sensor button. The "alarm"
indicator and signal will turn off.
Optimum temperature and air quality
Wine will continue to mature depending
on the surrounding conditions. The
length of time which wine can be kept
in good condition will therefore depend
not only on the temperature but also on
the air quality.
The wine storage unit provides a
constant temperature, increased
humidity and an odor-free environment,
creating the best possible storage
conditions for your wine.
Temperature
Wine can be stored at temperatures
between 41°F and 64°F (5 - 18°C). If
you would like to store red and white
wines together, choose a temperature
between 50°F and 54°F (10 - 12 °C).
Most white wines are palatable at this
temperature. It is best to take red wine
out of the appliance about 2 hours
before drinking. Open the wine to allow
it to breathe and to develop its aroma.
After 2 hours, red wine will be at the
correct temperature for drinking.
Storage temperatures above 72°F
(22°C) will cause wines to mature too
quickly. By contrast, wine should not be
stored below 41°F (5°C), since it will not
mature fully at this low temperature.
Fluctuations in temperature put wine
under stress and interrupt the maturing
process. Therefore, it is important to
maintain a constant temperature.
Setting the temperature
The factory (default) settings for the
temperature zones are as follows:
The upper temperature zone is set for
optimal red-wine storage:
Red temper 61°F (16°C)
The middle temperature zone is set for
optimal white-wine storage:
White temper 50°F (10°C)
The lower temperature zone is intended
for wine storage in general.
Wine storage 52°F (11°C)
You can change the "purpose" of the
zones as you wish.
For example, you can store white wine
in the upper temperature zone, as long
as you adjust the temperature
accordingly:
^ Tap the sensor button for the desired
temperature zone, so that it turns
yellow.
^ Select the preferred temperature
setting so that the sensor button turns
yellow.
The setting "white temper" is not
available in the lower temperature
zone.
15
Optimum temperature and air quality
Temperatures can be independently
set in all three zones.
The unit comes factory pre-set for white
wine, red wine, and wine storage.
The temperatures can be changed as
desired.
Once you have adjusted the
temperature, check the temperature
after a few hours. It will take this long
for the appliance to reach the
temperature. If, after this time, the
temperature is still too high or too low, it
should be adjusted again.
Temperature ranges
^ Select the temperature zone you
would like to change the temperature
in.
Use the X and Y buttons next to the
temperature display to set the
temperature warmer or colder.
– The temperature will change in 1°
increments.
– Hold the button down to change the
value continuously.
– When the lowest or highest
temperature is reached the
corresponding arrow will no longer
appear in the display.
The factory-suggested temperature
for the selected zone appears in
yellow.

– upper temperature zone
3°C to 18°C or
37°F to 64°F.
– middle temperature zone
3°C to 18°C or
37°F to 64°F.
– lower temperature zone
8°C to 18°C or
46°C to 64°F.
Optimum temperature and air quality
Insulation panels for thermal
separation
The unit has two fixed insulation panels,
to divide the interior into the three
different temperature zones. This
allows you to store three different types
of wine, such as red wine, white wine
and champagne.
The correct serving temperature is
crucial for the taste and therefore your
enjoyment of the wine.
The following temperatures are
recommended for the different types of
wine:
Red wine:
57°F to 64°F
(14 °C to 18°C)
Rosé:
50°F to 54°F
(10 °C to 12 °C)
White wine:
46°F to 54°F
(8 °C to 12 °C)
Temperature display
The temperature display on the
control panel always shows the
required temperature.
The temperature display will flash if
the temperature in one of the zones is
too high or too cold.
Tap the X and Y sensor buttons to
raise/lower the temperature 1°, or hold
them down to move through the
temperature range more quickly.
Sparkling wine: 45°F to 48°F
(7 °C to 9 °C)
Champagne:
41°F to 45°F

18
Optimum temperature and air quality
Humidity
Setting the humidity level
In a conventional refrigerator, the
humidity levels are too low for storing
wines. High humidity levels (60 - 70 %)
are very important for the storage of
wine, so that the corks remain moist.
Under low humidity, the corks dry out
from the outside and can no longer seal
the bottles properly. This is why wine
bottles should always be stored lying
down, so that the wine can keep the
corks moistened from within. If air
enters the bottle, a wine will inevitably
spoil.
The unit comes factory pre-set to high
humidity.
Tip: Wine bottles should stand upright
for at least two hours before serving, or,
better still whole day long, to enable
sediment to settle to the bottom of the
bottle.
If you would like to use the wine unit for
long-term storage, it is recommended
that you select the higher humidity. The

Storing wine
Storage tips
Wooden racks
– Always unpack bottles – do not store
wine in crates or boxes.
– Always lay bottles on their side for
storage. This keeps the corks moist
from the inside, preventing air from
entering.
– Store similar wine varieties beside
each other on the same shelf, to
avoid restacking and the need to
disturbed other bottles.
– Before serving, rosé and red wine
bottles should spend at least two
hours upright and open, to reach
optimal drinking temperature.
Sparkling wine and champagnes
should be chilled briefly in the
refrigerator before serving.
– Remember that wine should always
be cooled to slightly lower than the
ideal serving temperature, as the
temperature increases by 1° to 2° as
soon as it is poured into a glass.
For convenient removal and addition of
bottles, the wooden racks can be
pulled out on rails.
The wooden racks can also be
completely removed.
^ Pull out the empty wooden rack
(along with the rails) as far as the
stop, then lift it up and out.
^ To replace the racks, set them on the
extended rails so that they click into
place.
Be sure that the ventilation slits at
the rear of the unit are not blocked.
They are essential for the unit to
operate properly.
21
Storing wine
Bottle display rack
The display rack, allows you to display
selected bottles so they can be seen
even with the door closed.
The display rack can only be attached
to wooden racks with wide cross-ties. In
the upper temperature zone, these are
found in the lower position. In the lower
temperature zones, they are found in
both the upper and lower position.
It is recommended that the wooden
racks always be left in the pre-set
positions. This makes optimal use of
the interior space.
^ Lay the wine bottles in the display
rack, so that they touch the wooden
guide-rail a.
^ To remove the display rack pull it up
and out, then attach it to the rear
position on the wooden rack b.
The bottles can now be stored on the
wooden rack in the usual manner.
Additional display racks are
available from Miele.
22
Never stack bottles on the wooden
racks. Only the bottom-most level in
each temperature zone can support
a stack of bottles (remove the
wooden rack).
Maximum capacity
The unit can hold approx. 102 bottles
(0.75 l).

Installation
Preparing the installation
niche
,Keep the appliance door closed
until it is securely fastened in the
niche. Tipping hazard.
Anti-tip-brackets
The anti-tip brackets a keep the
appliance safely secured in the
installation niche b and prevent it from
tipping.
Because of the size and weight of
the appliance, it is essential to
ensure that the appliance cannot tip
over once it has been mounted in
the niche.
Mounting Accessories
The mounting accessories needed for
installing the appliance into the niche
are included in the packaging. Several
plastic bags are included which are
numbered alphabetically.
The bag needed for each step will be
marked with its respective letter.
,Risk of tipping
The installation niche must be
securely attached to the wall behind
it. This is the only way the
appliance, which is later secured in
the niche, can be prevented from
tipping!
Two anti-tip brackets are
recommended for each appliance. For
side-by-side installations 4 brackets are
recommended.
49
Installation
In a cabinet with a back wall
^ Position the anti-tip brackets on the
left and right in the installation niche
so that there is no more than 3/8"
(10 mm) of space between the
brackets and the side walls.
^ Mark the drill holes in the anti-tip
brackets on the back wall and on the
ceiling of the installation niche.
^ Set the brackets aside - they will be
needed again later.
Screws are supplied with the
appliance for various
applications/materials.
If the anti-tip brackets cannot be
attached securely with the screws
supplied, an alternative anti-tip
device can be used.
Assure that there are no electrical
wires or plumbing in the area which
the screws could penetrate-risk of
injury and damage.
^ Now attach the installation niche to
the wall.
The built-in cabinet must be secured to
the wall behind it with several screws.
50
^ screw the back wall of the cabinet in
several places directly to the wall
behind it.
For this, use suitable plugs/screws
depending on the type of wall.
Installation
In a cabinet without a back wall
Securing an alternative anti-tip
device
If the anti-tip brackets cannot be
attached securely, an alternative
anti-tip device can be used.
Ensure that there is no "give" between
the appliance and the anti-tip device.
If possible, always screw the
wooden beam to existing studs.
^ screw the cabinet to the wall behind
it in several places using suitable
mounting brackets.
For this, use suitable plugs/screws
depending on the type of wall.
– Cut a wooden beam
(cross section min. 3" x 4"
[75 mm x 100 mm]) to the required
length.
– The length is equal to the width of
the installation niche.
– If the installation cavity is deeper
than the appliance, select a beam
which has a larger cross section, or
attach two beams.
51
Installation
– The beam must cover the appliance
by at least 2" (50.8 mm).
^ Mark the installation height (lower
edge of the beam) on the rear wall of
the niche.

thickness of the wooden beam.
Example: 3 ½" (89 mm) screw for 2x4
beam.
Sliding the appliance into the
installation niche
If a side-by-side installation is
desired, connect the two appliances
together. See the Installation Manual
included with the "Merging Kit".
^ Determine the number of screws
based on the cavity width, to ensure
that the beam will be attached
securely.
^ Locate wall studs near the rear wall
of the cavity and mark drill holes in
the beam.
^ Pre-drill the wooden beam.
^ Attach the wooden beam to the rear
wall of the niche.
