Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
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
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.
Please do not therefore dispose of it
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.
The plug must be rendered useless
and the cable cut off directly behind the
appliance to prevent misuse. Take care
not to damage the pipework at the back
of it before or during transportation to
an authorised collection depot.
In this way, refrigerant in the pipework
and oil in the compressor will be
contained, and will not leak out into the
environment.

Warning and Safety instructions
This appliance complies with all relevant local and national safety
requirements. Improper use of the appliance can, however,
present a risk of both personal injury and material damage.
To avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the appliance,
please read these instructions carefully before installation and
before using it for the first time. They contain important notes on
the installation, safety, operation and care of the appliance. Miele
cannot be held liable for damage caused by non-compliance with
these Warning and Safety instructions.
Keep these instructions in a safe place and pass them on to any
future owner.
Correct application
~ This appliance is designed for domestic use and for use in similar
environments by guests in hotel or motel rooms, bed & breakfasts
and other typical living quarters. This does not include
common/shared facilities or commercial facilities within hotels,
motels or bed & breakfasts.
This appliance is not suitable for outdoor use.
~ This appliance is intended for the cool storage of food and drinks.
Any other usage is not supported by the manufacturer and could be
dangerous.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
~ This appliance is not suitable for storing and refrigerating
medications, blood plasma, laboratory preparations or similar
substances or products. Incorrect use of the appliance may result in
damage to or spoiling of the food or drinks being stored.
Furthermore, the appliance must not be operated in areas where
explosions may occur.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage resulting from improper or
incorrect use of the appliance.
~ This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or
lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning its use by a person
responsible for their safety, and are able to recognise the dangers of
misuse.
Safety with children
~ Young children must not be allowed to use this appliance.
~ Older children may only use the appliance when its operation has
been clearly explained to them and they are able to use it safely,
recognising the dangers of misuse.
~ Cleaning work may only be carried out by older children under
the supervision of an adult.
~ Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play
with the appliance. Keep small children away from the appliance at
all times to avoid the risk of injury.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Danger of suffocation! Children may be able to wrap themselves
in packing material or pull it over their heads with the risk of
suffocation. Keep children away from any packing material.
Technical safety
~ The refrigerant circuit has been checked for leaks. This appliance
complies with all current local and national safety requirements.
~ 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
refrigerant can damage the eyes.
In the event of any damage:
– avoid any flames or anything which creates a spark,
– switch off at the mains and unplug the appliance,
– ventilate the room where the appliance is located for several
minutes, and
– contact Miele for advice.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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 m3 of room space is required. The
amount of coolant in the appliance is stated on the data plate inside
the appliance.
~ Before connecting the appliance, make sure that the connection
data on the data plate (fuse rating, voltage and rated load) match
the mains electricity 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.
~ If the connection cable is faulty, it must only be replaced by a
Miele approved service technician to protect the user from danger.
~ 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).
~ If moisture gets into electrical components, it could cause a short
circuit.
Therefore, do not operate this appliance in areas which are exposed
to moisture.
~ This appliance must not be installed and operated in mobile
installations (e.g. on a ship).
12
Warning and Safety instructions
~ A damaged appliance is dangerous. Check the appliance for any
visible damage. Never install or attempt to use a damaged
appliance.
~ For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used when it has
been fully installed.
~ During installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply. It is only
completely isolated from the electricity supply when:
– the mains fuse has been 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.
~ Repairs and installation work by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for unauthorised
work. Installation, maintenance work and repairs to electrical
appliances must only be carried out by a Miele approved service
technician.
~ 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
spare parts. The manufacturer can only guarantee the safety of the
appliance when Miele replacement parts are used.
13
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 of the appliance is stated on the data plate inside
the appliance. Installing the appliance in a room with too low an
ambient temperature, e.g. a garage, can lead to the appliance
switching off for longer periods so that it cannot maintain the
required temperature.
~ To ensure proper air flow in and out of the appliance, the air vents
must not be covered or blocked in any way. It would also increase
the energy consumption and could cause damage to the appliance.
~ Make sure that any oil, or foods containing oil, do not come into
contact with plastic components as this could cause stress cracks.
~ Do not store explosive materials in the appliance or any products
containing propellants (e.g. spray cans). Flammable gas mixtures
can be ignited by electrical components.
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!
14
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Food stored for too long may present a 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. Follow the instructions given on the food
manufacturer's packaging regarding storage conditions and "use
by" dates.
~ Use only Miele Original spare parts. If spare parts or accessories
from other manufacturers are used, the warranty will be invalidated,
and Miele cannot accept liability.
Cleaning and care
~ Do not use any oils or grease on the door seal, as these will
cause the seal to deteriorate and become porous with time.
~ Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance.
Pressurised steam could reach the electrical components and
cause a short circuit.
~ Do not use sharp edged objects to
– remove frost and ice,
– separate frozen foods and remove ice trays.
They will damage the evaporator, causing irreversible damage to
the appliance.
~ Never place electric heaters or candles in the appliance to
defrost it. These can damage the plastic parts.
~ Do not use defrosting sprays or de-icers, as they might contain
substances which could damage the plastic parts or which could
cause a build-up of gases and pose a danger to health.
15
Warning and Safety instructions
Transporting the appliance
~ To avoid damaging the appliance, it must be transported upright
in its packaging.
~ The appliance is very heavy and therefore needs to be
transported by at least two people. Danger of injury and damage!
Disposal of your old appliance
~ Before disposing of an old appliance, first make the door lock
unusable.
This way you will prevent children from accidentally locking
themselves in and endangering their lives.
~ Be careful not to damage any part of the pipework whilst awaiting
disposal, e.g. by
– puncturing the refrigerant channels in the condenser,
– bending any pipework, or
– scratching the surface coating.
Splashes of refrigerant can harm the eyes.

cooling is switched off.
When the appliance is switched
back on again, Sabbath mode is
deactivated.
Switching the appliance on and off
Switching off for longer
periods of time
If the appliance is not going to be used
for a longer period of time, e.g. whilst
on holiday:
^ switch the appliance off,
^ switch off at the wall and withdraw
the plug from the socket, or
disconnect the mains fuse or remove
the screw-out fuse in countries where
this is applicable,
^ clean the appliance, and
^ leave the door ajar to air the
appliance.
If, during a long absence, the
appliance is switched off but not
cleaned out and the doors are left
shut, there is a danger of mould and
odours building up inside the
appliance.
21
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 which is being put in
the refrigerator,
– 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
and in the PerfectFresh zone
We recommend a temperature of 4 °C
in the refrigerator.
The temperature in the PerfectFresh
zone is controlled automatically, and is
maintained at 0 to 3 °C.
22
Automatic temperature adjustment
(DynamicCooling)
The DynamicCooling fan automatically
switches on when the cooling system
for the refrigerator switches on. It
distributes the temperature in the
appliance to all areas more evenly so
that all the food will be chilled to about
the same degree.
Temperature display
In normal operation the temperature
display shows the current mean
refrigerator temperature.
Depending on the room temperature
and the temperature setting, it can take
several hours until the selected
temperature is reached and displayed
steadily.

When you tap the sensors, you will see
the following changes in the display:
When 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 reach the temperature.
If, after this time, the temperature is still
too high or too low, you will need to
adjust it again.

Adjusting the temperature in
the PerfectFresh zone
In the PerfectFresh zone the
temperature is maintained between 0
and 3 °C. However, if you would like it
to be warmer or colder, e.g. when
storing fish, you can adjust the
temperature slightly.
The preset temperature in the
PerfectFresh zone is 5. If a setting of
between 1 and 4 is selected, minus

Using the refrigerator efficiently
Different storage zones
Due to the natural circulation of the air
in the appliance, 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 zones when placing
food in the appliance.
This appliance has DynamicCooling,
which helps to keep an even
temperature when the fan is running.
When DynamicCooling is switched
on, the difference between the
various zones is less pronounced.
Warmest area
The warmest area is in the top section
of the door. Use this for storing butter
and cheese.
Coldest area
The coldest area in the refrigerator
section is directly above the diving
plate of the PerfectFresh zone and
against the rear wall. However, inside
the PerfectFresh zone is even colder.
Use these areas in the refrigerator and
in the PerfectFresh zone 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,
32
– pre-packed vegetables and other
fresh food with a label stating it
should be kept at a temperature of
approx. 4 °C.
Do not store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products
containing propellants (e.g. spray
cans).
Danger of explosion!
If storing food which contains a lot of
fat or oil, make sure that it does not
come into contact with plastic
components as this could cause
stress cracks.
Food must not touch the back wall
of the refrigerator section, as it may
freeze to the back wall.
To allow air to circulate efficiently,
do not pack food too closely
together in the refrigerator section.
Make sure that the fan at the back of
the appliance is not covered. It is
important for cooling performance.
Using the refrigerator efficiently
Food which should not be
stored in a refrigerator
What to be aware of when
shopping for food
Not all food is suitable for refrigeration
at temperatures below 5 °C because it
is sensitive to cold.
Depending on the type of food, the
appearance, consistency, flavour
and/or vitamin content may be altered if
stored at too cold a temperature.
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. Time out of the
refrigerator, e.g. during transportation,
should be kept to a minimum. For
example, do not allow food to stay in a
hot car for too long. Once food has
started to deteriorate, this process
cannot be reversed. As little as two
hours outside the refrigerator can
cause food to start deteriorating.
Tip: Take a cool bag when shopping
and place all cold food immediately in
the refrigerator and freezer upon arrival
home.
Foods which are sensitive to cold
include:
– Pineapples, avocados, bananas,
pomegranates, mangoes, melons,
papayas, passionfruit, citrus fruits
such as lemons, oranges,
mandarines, grapefruits
– Fruit which is not yet ripe
– Eggplants, cucumbers, potatoes,
capiscum, tomatoes, zucchini
– Hard cheeses, e.g. Parmesan,
mountain cheese.
Storing food correctly
Food should generally be stored
covered or packaged in the refrigerator
section (there are some exceptions to
this rule in the PerfectFresh zone - see
below). This will prevent food smells
from affecting other foods, food from
drying out, and also any
cross-contamination of bacteria. This is
especially important for storing animal
products.
The shelf life of food can be
significantly increased by setting the
correct temperature and maintaining
good standards of hygiene.
33
Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone
Due to the optimum storage conditions
in the PerfectFresh zone for fruit,
vegetables, fish, meat and dairy
products, food remains fresh for longer,
and flavour and vitamins are retained.
The optimum storage temperature for
fresh food which is not sensitive to the
cold is 0 - 3 °C. This is the temperature
range which is automatically
maintained in the PerfectFresh zone.
Food which is not sensitive to cold can
be stored in the PerfectFresh zone at
this temperature without loss of
freshness for considerably longer than
in a standard refrigerator, as the
deterioration process is decelerated at
this temperature.
The humidity level in the PerfectFresh
zone can also be regulated to provide
the correct conditions for food stored
inside it. An increase in the humidity
level ensures that food retains its own
moisture and does not dry out so
quickly. Therefore, such food will
remain firm and fresh for longer.
Remember that the initial freshness of
the food when placed in the
refrigerator is crucial for good
storage results.
Take food out of the PerfectFresh
zone approx. 30 - 60 minutes before
using it. The aroma and taste do not
fully develop until the food has
reached room temperature.
34
The PerfectFresh zone is divided into
two compartments:
– The upper dry compartment has a
temperature of between 0 - 3 °C. The
humidity level in this compartment is
not increased ,. In this compartment
you should store fish, meat, dairy
products and any other type of food
as long as it is packaged.
– The lower humidity controlled
compartment (in different numbers
depending on model) has a
temperature of between 0 - 3 °C. The
humidity level can be kept low , or
high ,,, depending on the position of
the slide control. If the humidity is
increased in this compartment, fruit
and vegetables should be stored
inside it.
Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone
Dry compartment ,
The dry compartment is suitable for
storing perishable foods such as:
– Fresh fish, shellfish and crustaceans;
– Meat, poultry, sausages;
– Deli salads;
– Dairy products such as yoghurt,
cheese, cream, quark etc.;
– Any type of food can in fact be
stored in this compartment, as long
as it is packaged.
The low temperature in the dry
compartment is its most distinctive
feature. The humidity level is similar to
that in a conventional refrigerator.
Please note that foods rich in protein
deteriorate faster than others.
Shellfish, for example, deteriorates
faster than fish, and fish deteriorates
faster than meat.
Always keep these foods covered or
wrapped.
Humidity controlled
compartment ,, ,,
The humidity controlled compartment
has a slide control which is used to
regulate the moisture in this
compartment.
To do this, set the slide control to either
, or ,,.
Low humidity ,
When this setting (,) is used, the
humidity controlled compartment
becomes a dry compartment. The slide
control opens the narrow openings in
the compartment so that moisture is
able to escape (see "Dry compartment
,").
High humidity ,,
On this setting ,, the humidity
controlled compartment is suitable for
storing fruit and vegetables.
The slide control closes the openings in
the compartment so that the moisture is
retained within it.
The humidity level in the humidity
controlled compartment is determined
by the type and quantity of food when it
is not packaged.
If the quantity of food being stored in
this compartment is small, the humidity
level may be low.
Tip: Store small quantities of food in
air-tight packaging.
If the humidity level in the humidity
controlled compartment is high,
condensate may build up. This can
be removed with a cloth.
35
Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone
If you are not satisfied with the results of your stored food (e.g. food loses
firmness and wilts shortly after placing in the appliance), keep in mind the
following instructions:
^ Only place fresh food in the appliance as the initial condition of the food is
crucial to maintaining freshness.
^ Clean PerfectFresh compartments before storing food in them.
^ Dry the surface of very moist food before placing it in the PerfectFresh
compartments.
^ Do not store any food in the PerfectFresh zone which is sensitive to cold (see
"Food which should not be stored in a refrigerator").
^ For the type of food being stored, select the correct PerfectFresh compartment
and the appropriate position of the slide control for the humidity controlled
compartment (low or high humidity).
^ An increased humidity level (,,) in the humidity controlled compartment is
achieved through the moisture contained within the food being stored, i.e., the
more food, the more moisture there is. If too much moisture collects on the floor
of the compartment and this is affecting the food, mop up the condensate with a
cloth or place a rack at the bottom of the compartment to allow any excess
moisture to drain off. If the humidity level becomes too low, wrap the food in
air-tight packaging.
^ If you think that the temperature in the PerfectFresh zone is not correct, try
adjusting it slightly by 1 to 2 °C via the refrigerator temperature control. To avoid
frost damage to food, a higher temperature must be set if ice crystals begin to
form on the bottom of the PerfectFresh compartments.
36
Adjusting the interior fittings
Adjusting the door shelf /
bottle shelf
Adjustable shelf / Adjustable
shelf with lighting
^ Lift up the bottle shelf / door shelf
and pull it towards you to remove it.

the holders, and push it back into
place.
To replace the drawer:
^ Place the drawer on the fully
retracted telescopic runners.
^ Push the drawer in until it clicks into
place.
39
Automatic defrosting
The refrigerator defrosts automatically.
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the refrigerator whilst in
use. You do not need to remove this, as
it will defrost and evaporate
automatically with the warmth
generated by the appliance.
The condensate is drained away
through a channel and drain hole, then
fed into an evaporation system at the
back of the appliance.
It is important to keep the
condensate channel and drain hole
clean and free of blockages so that
the condensate can flow away
properly.
40
Cleaning and care
Do not let water get into the
electronic unit or the lighting, or on
the metal discs (contacts) in the
left-hand shelf support.
Cleaning water must not get into the
drain hole.
Do not use a steam cleaning
apparatus to clean the appliance.
Steam could reach the electrical
components and cause a short
circuit.
The data plate located inside the
appliance must not be removed. It
contains information which is
required in the event of a service call.
Cleaning agents
To avoid damaging the surfaces of your
appliance, do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– hard, abrasive sponges and
brushes, e.g. pot scourers,
– dirt erasers,
– sharp metal scrapers.
To clean stainless steel surfaces on
the appliance, use the Original Miele
care product for stainless steel (see
Guide to the appliance - Optional
accessories").
This product contains substances
that are gentle to stainless steel
surfaces and, unlike stainless steel
cleaners, it does not contain
polishing agents. Soiling is gently
removed and each time the Original
Miele Care product for stainless steel
is used, it forms a protective film
against dirt and water.
Cleaning and conditioning agents
used inside the appliance must be
food safe.
We recommend using lukewarm water
with a little washing-up liquid to clean

Electrical connection
All electrical work should be carried out
by a suitably qualified and competent
person in strict accordance with current
local and national safety regulations.
The appliance is supplied with a mains
cable and moulded plug ready for
connection to an AC single phase
220 – 240 V 50 Hz supply.
The fuse rating must be at least 10 A.
The voltage and frequency are given on
the data plate. Please ensure that these
match the household mains supply.
Connection should be made via a
suitable switched socket which is easily
accessible. For extra safety it is
advisable to install a suitable residual
current device (RCD).
The accessibility of the plug must
always be ensured in order to be able
to quickly separate the appliance from
the mains.
If the mains socket is not accessible
after the appliance has been built in, a
separator for each terminal must be
available. There must be an all-pole
contact gap of 3 mm in the switch.
Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by an extension
lead or a plug adapter. Extension leads
do not guarantee the required safety of
the appliance (e.g. danger of
overheating).
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.
If the mains connection cable needs to
be replaced, this must only be carried
out by a qualified electrician.
WARNING
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
EARTHED
The plug and mains connection cable
must not come into contact with the
back of the appliance as vibrations can
cause damage to these components.
This, in turn, could result in a short
circuit.
Nor should other appliances be
plugged into a socket located directly
behind the appliance.
59
Installation advice
This appliance must be built in,
otherwise it could tip up.
Side-by-side units:
The KS 37472 iD has two side wall
heaters encased in foam and can be
built in side-by-side in separate
housing units with all refrigeration
appliances.
Please contact Miele for information
on which combinations are suitable
for your appliance.
Location
This appliance should be installed in a
dry, well-ventilated room. It should not
be installed where it is exposed to
direct sunlight or directly adjacent to a
heat-producing appliance such as an
oven or a radiator. The room
temperature should not go above or
below the climate range for which the
appliance is designed. The higher the
ambient temperature of the room, the
more energy the appliance requires to
operate.
Please note the following when
installing the appliance:
– The mains connection socket must
not be located directly behind the
appliance and must be easily
accessible.
– The plug and mains connection
cable must not come into contact

Operating in a room which is too cold
will result in the compressor switching
off for too long, causing the internal
temperature in the appliance to rise
with the risk of food deteriorating and
going off.
Installation advice
Ventilation
The ventilation gaps given must be
adhered to, otherwise the
compressor will be activated 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 the
compressor to be damaged.
Air at the back of the appliance gets
warm. The appliance housing unit must
therefore be constructed to allow
sufficient space for ventilation (see
"Building-in dimensions").
– Air intake a occurs via the plinth at
the bottom of the appliance and the
air escapes at the top b at the rear
of the housing unit.
– A ventilation gap of at least 40 mm
depth must be allowed for behind the
appliance for air to circulate.
– The ventilation cross-sections in the
plinth, housing unit and above the
appliance must amount to at least
200 cm2 to ensure that air can
circulate without hindrance.
– The larger the ventilation
cross-sections, the more energy
efficient the appliance operates.
The air inlet and outlet must not be
covered or blocked in any way.
They should be dusted on a regular
basis.
Top ventilation cross-section
The top ventilation cross-section can be
achieved in various ways:
a Directly above the appliance with a
ventilation grille (free passage of at
least 200 cm2).
b Between furniture units and the
ceiling.
c In an intermediate ceiling.
