~ While the appliance is under
for externally visible damage. Do not
operate a damaged appliance.
~ To guarantee the electrical safety of
this appliance, continuity must exist
between the appliance and an effective
grounding system. It is imperative that
this basic safety requirement be met. If
there is any doubt, have the electrical
system of the house checked by a
qualified electrician.
~ Before installation, make sure that
the voltage and frequency listed on the
rating label correspond with the
household electrical supply. To prevent
injury and appliance damage, these
data must match. Consult a qualified
electrician if in doubt.
~ Do not use an extension cord to
connect this appliance to the electrical
supply. Extension cords do not ensure
the required safety of the appliance.
~ Install the appliance so that the
power cord does not come into contact
with any portion of the cooktop which
may become hot during use.
~ Do not use the appliance until it has

~ In the event of any damage to the
appliance, it must be turned off
immediately and disconnected from the
main power supply. Contact Miele’s
Technical Service Department.
Do not use the appliance until it has
been repaired. Ensure power is not
supplied to the appliance until repair
work is completed.
~ Defective components should be
replaced by Miele original spare parts
only. Only with these parts can the
manufacturer guarantee the safety of
the appliance.
~ Do not cook on a broken cooktop.
Any breakages or cracks in the ceramic
surface of the appliance are defects
and must be treated as such. If the
cooktop should break, cleaning
solutions and spills may penetrate the
broken cooktop and create a risk of
electric shock. Do not use the
appliance until it has been repaired.
been properly installed in the
COOKING AREA - During operation,
the cooking area and its surroundings
will get hot and can cause burns. When
the cooktop is shut off, the surface may
remain hot enough to cause harm, even
though the glow is not visible through
the dark glass. During and after use, do
not touch or let clothing or other
flammable materials contact the
cooking area or the vicinity around the
cooking area until they have had
sufficient time to cool. As long as the
surface temperature is high enough to
cause a burn, the Residual Heat
Indicator will remain lit. Once sufficient
time has passed the indicator will go
out and the surface is safe to touch.
~ Protect your hands with oven mitts
or potholders when using the
appliance. Use only dry, heat resistant
potholders. Moist or damp potholders
used on hot surfaces can result in
steam burns. Do not let the potholder
touch the hot heating elements. Do not
use towels or other bulky items near the
~ Do not heat unopened containers.
Built-up pressure may cause the
container to burst and result in injury.
~ Do not flambé under an exhaust
hood. Flames could be drawn up into
the hood by the suction and the grease
filters may ignite.
~ Never use the appliance to heat a
room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects left near the appliance
could catch fire.
~ Do not store items on the appliance
when not in use. Items could melt or
catch fire from residual heat or if the
appliance is turned on inadvertently.
Always switch the cooking zone(s) off
after use.
~ Never cover the burner with a cloth
or protective oven foil. If inadvertently
turned on or if there is residual heat, a
fire could result.
~ Be aware of loose fitting or hanging
garments when operating the
appliance, they may present a fire
~ Never leave an appliance
unattended at high settings or when
cooking with oil or fat. Overheated oil
could ignite. Always heat oil slowly,
monitoring it as it heats.

~ To prevent burns and breathing
difficulty, allow the cooktop to cool
before cleaning. Some cleaners may
produce toxic fumes if applied to a hot
cookware with flat bottoms large
enough to cover the heating element.

a portion of the heating element and
may result in ignition of clothing or

"Selecting cookware" for more
information. Grains of salt and sand can

free of any fat or oils and are dry.
salt and sand can cause scratches.
~ When wiping spills on a hot cooktop
with a wet sponge or cloth, be careful
to avoid steam burns.
~ Do not let flammable materials,
~ Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
this appliance. Steam could penetrate
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
~ Do not allow either solid or liquid
sugar, pieces of plastic or foil to fall on
the burners when they are hot. If these
residues are allowed to cool on the
ceramic surface pitting or even
cracking may occur.
~ Any spills should be removed as
quickly as possible to prevent them
from burning on and becoming difficult
to remove.
~ Aluminum cookware or cookware
with aluminum base can cause shiny
metallic spots. These spots can be
removed with ceramic glass or
stainless steel cleaner (see "Cleaning
and Care").
~ Never heat up an empty pot, unless
the manufacturer explicitly allows this
can be done! Failure to comply can
result in a damaged cooktop.
~ NEVER set down hot pots or pans in
the area of the control panel. This can
damage the underlying electronics.
~ If the cooktop built in behind a
cabinet door, it should only be
operated with the door open.
Close the door only when the appliance
is shut off and the Residual Heat
indicators have gone out.
Note to the installer:
Please leave this instruction book
with the consumer for the local
electrical inspector’s use.
The minimum distances given in
these Installation Instructions must
be observed in order to ensure safe
operation. Failure to do so increases
the risk of fire.
The cabinetry and venting hood
should be installed first to prevent
damage to the cooktop.
~ This appliance has not been
designed for maritime (e.g. ships) use
or for use in mobile installations such as
recreational vehicles or aircraft.
However, under certain conditions it
may be possible for installation in these
applications. Please contact the Miele
Technical Service Department with
specific requirements.
~ You must ensure the power cable
for the appliance will not come into
contact with the floor panel after
installation, nor be subject to any
mechanical strain.

Any back splashes should also be
over a dishwasher, washer, dryer,
refrigerator or freezer. Heat radiated by
the cooktop may damage them.
~ To eliminate the risk of burns or fire
by reaching over heated surfaces
cabinet storage space above the
appliance should be avoided. If cabinet
storage is necessary, the risk can be
reduced by installing a venting hood to
project horizontally a minimum of 5"
(127 mm) beyond the bottom of the

when installed. The sealing strip under
the edge of the cooktop provides a
sufficient seal for the countertop. See

Keep this instruction book in a safe
place for reference and pass it on to
any future user.
Safety distance from divider
Installation of a divider under the
cooktop is not required.
Safety distances above the
If a divider is fitted under the cooktop,
the distance between the upper edge
of the work surface and the upper edge
of the divider must be at least 4 ½ "
(110 mm).
A gap of at least 1 3/8"" (35 mm) must
be provided between the rear edge of
the divider and the rear wall of the
cabinet so that the power cord can be
passed through.
The minimum safety distance given by
the hood manufacturer must be
maintained between the cooktop and
the hood above it. See the installation
instructions of the hood for these safety
If the hood manufacturer's instructions
are not available or if flammable objects
are installed over the cooktop
(e.g. cabinets, utensil rail, etc.), a
minimum safety distance of 30"
(760 mm) must be maintained.
If there is more than one appliance
beneath a hood (e.g. wok burner
and electric cooktop), and they have
different minimum safety distances,
always observe the greater

Safety distance from the wall covering
If a wall covering is installed, a minimum safety distance must be maintained
between the countertop cut-out and the covering, since high temperatures can
damage these materials.
If the covering is made of a combustible material (such as wood), the distance
between the countertop cut-out and the wall covering must be a minimum of
2" (50 mm).
For coverings made of non-combustible materials (such as metal, marble, granite
or ceramic tiles) the minimum safety distance e between the countertop cut-out
and the wall covering must be 2" (50 mm) minus the thickness of the covering.
For example: thickness of wall covering 9/16" (15 mm)
2" (50 mm) - 9/16" (15 mm) = minimum safety distance 1 3/8" (35 mm).
