Caring for the environment

Disposal of the packing material

The transport and protective packing has been selected from materials which are environmentally friendly for disposal, and can normally be recycled.

Disposal of your old appliance

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 that they are recycled.

Please dispose of it at your local community waste collection / recycling centre or contact your dealer for advice. Ensure that it presents no danger to children while being stored for disposal.

It should be unplugged or disconnected from the mains electricity supply by a competent person.

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.

7

Warning and Safety instructions

Technical safety

~

Before setting up the appliance, check it for any externally visible damage. Do not install and use a damaged appliance.

A damaged appliance is dangerous.

~

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

~

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, but does not have any adverse effect on the performance of the appliance.

Care must be taken during the transportation and installation 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 open flames and anything which creates a spark,

- disconnect from the mains,

- air the room in which the appliance is located for several minutes and

- contact the Service Department for advice.

~

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.

~

Safe operation of the appliance is only assured if it has been installed and connected in accordance with these operating and installation instructions.

~

Before connecting the appliance, make sure that the connection data on the data plate (voltage and connected 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.

~

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).

9

Warning and Safety instructions

~

The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when continuity is complete between it and an effective earthing system which complies with current 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.

The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage or injury caused by the lack of or inadequacy of an effective earthing system (e.g. electric shock).

~

Installation, maintenance and repairs may only be carried out by a suitably qualified and competent person in strict accordance with current national and local safety regulations.

~

In countries where there are areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the appliance and its surroundings in a clean condition at all times. Any damage which may be caused by cockroaches or other vermin will not be covered by the guarantee.

Correct use

~

Never handle frozen food with wet hands. Your hands may freeze to the frozen food. Danger of frost burn.

~

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 thawed or partially thawed food. Defrosted food should be used up as quickly as possible, as food soon loses its nutritional value and goes off. Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

~

Do not store explosive materials in the appliance or any products containing propellants (e.g. spray cans). Thermostats switching on may produce sparks which could present a fire hazard. Flammable compounds could explode.

~

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. Danger of injury and damage to the appliance.

~

Observe the "use by" dates 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. Follow the instructions given on the food manufacturer's packaging regarding storage conditions and "use-by" dates.

~

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.

11

Warning and Safety instructions

~

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.

~

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 block the ventilation gaps in the appliance as this would impair the efficiency of the appliance, increase the electricity consumption and could cause damage to the appliance.

~

The appliance is designed for use within certain climate ranges (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, can lead to the appliance switching off for longer periods so that it cannot maintain the required temperature.

~

Do not use a steam-cleaning appliance to defrost or clean this appliance. Steam could reach the electrical components and cause a short circuit.

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.

~

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

– puncturing the refrigerant channels in the evaporator.

– bending any pipework.

– scratching the surface coating.

Splashes of refrigerant can damage the eyes.

The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage caused by non-compliance with these Warning and safety instructions.

In direct sunlight.

Situated near to a heat source

(radiator, oven).

Where the ideal ambient room temperature is approx. 20°C.

With a medium setting of 2 to 3.

Where there is a high ambient room temperature.

With a high setting: the lower the temperature in the compartment, the higher the energy consumption.

Cellar section 8 to 12°C

Refrigerator section 4 to 5 °C

PerfectFresh zone just above 0 °C

Freezer section -18°C

On appliances with winter setting, please make sure that the winter setting is switched off when the ambient temperature is warmer than 16 °C.

Wine storage section 10 to 12 °C

Only open the doors when necessary and for as short a time as possible.

Store food in an organised way.

Frequent opening of the doors for long periods will cause a loss of coldness.

If food is not stored in an organised way, searching for an item will mean the door is open for longer.

Allow hot food and drinks to cool down before placing them in the appliance.

Placing hot food in the appliance will cause the compressor to run for a long time, as the appliance will have to work harder to lower the temperature.

Store food covered or packaged.

The evaporation or condensation of liquids will cause a loss of coldness in the refrigerator.

Place frozen food in the refrigerator to defrost.

Do not over-fill the appliance to allow air to circulate.

Defrost the freezer compartment when a layer of ice 0.5 cm thick has built up.

A layer of ice hinders the cold from reaching the frozen food, and causes an increase in energy consumption.

^ switch off at the wall socket and withdraw the plug,

^ close the stopcock for the water inlet,

^ empty and clean the ice cube tray,

^ clean the appliance out and

^ leave the doors 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.

18

The correct temperature

. . . in the wine conditioning zones

Wine keeps on maturing depending on the surrounding conditions. The length of time for which wine can be kept in good condition will therefore depend not only on the temperature but also on the air quality.

Wine can be stored at a temperature between 5°C and 18°C. The optimum temperature for white wine is between

8 and 12 °C. It is best to take red wine out of the wine conditioning zones about two hours before drinking. Open the wine to allow it to breathe and to develop its aroma. After two hours, red wine will be at the correct temperature for drinking.

If wine is stored at a temperature above

22°C it will mature too quickly. Wine should not be stored below 5°C for a long period of time as it will not mature fully at this low temperature.

Fluctuations in temperature put wine under stress and interrupt the maturing process. It is therefore very important to maintain a constant temperature.

Isolator plate for thermal separation

The appliance has a fixed isolator plate which divides the top cabinet into two different temperature zones. You can use the upper and lower zones for storing different types of wine, e.g. red wine and white wine.

The following temperatures are recommended for the different types of wine:

Red wine:

Rosé wine:

White wine:

Sparkling white wines:

Champagne:

+14 °C to +18 °C

+10 °C to +12 °C

+8 °C to +12 °C

+7 °C to +9 °C

+5 °C to +7 °C

Safety features

A thermostat prevents the temperature in the wine conditioning zones from falling below 2°C. If the external temperature should drop below this level, a heater element switches on automatically to keep the temperature inside as constant as possible.

19

The correct temperature

. . . 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 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.

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,

– if too much food is stored in it at once,

– 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 in specific ambient temperatures

(climate ranges). Do not use in ambient temperatures for which it is not designed.

Setting the temperature

^ Select one of the wine conditioning zones or the freezer section by touching the sensor until the appropriate symbol lights up yellow.

You can set the temperatures in the wine conditioning zones independently of one another.

^ You can now use the arrow sensors on either side of the temperature display to set the temperature you require.

By touching the

X sensor: the temperature will get colder

Y sensor: the temperature will get warmer.

The temperature being set will flash in the display.

The following information shows in the display when the sensors are touched:

– Touching a sensor once: the last

temperature selected flashes.

– Each subsequent touch of a sensor: adjusts the temperature shown in

1 °C steps.

20

The correct temperature

– Leaving a finger on the sensor: changes the temperature continuously.

When the highest or lowest temperature in the range is reached, the

X or Y sensor disappears.

Approx. 5 seconds after taking your finger off a sensor, the average,

current temperature in the wine conditioning zones or freezer section is automatically shown.

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 display 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.

Temperature display

During normal operation the temperature display on the control panel shows the temperature in the middle of the wine conditioning zones or the temperature in the warmest part of the freezer section.

Changing the temperature display brightness

The temperature display brightness can be adjusted to suit the lighting conditions of the room.

^ Touch and leave your finger on the X sensor.

Temperature range

The temperature can be adjusted:

– In the wine conditioning zones from

5 °C to 20 °C

– In the freezer section from

-14 °C to -28 °C

The ambient temperature in the room and the installation location can affect the time it takes for the appliance to reach the lowest temperature. If the ambient temperature is too high, the appliance may not reach the lowest temperature.

^ At the same time, briefly touch the

On/Off sensor (without letting go of the

X sensor).

^ Leave your finger on the X sensor for another 5 seconds until c appears in the display.

^ Touch the X sensor repeatedly until d appears in the display.

^ Touch the On/Off sensor.

^ The temperature display brightness can now be changed by touching the

X sensor: d 0: Maximum brightness d 1: Reduced brightness d –: Return to menu.

21

The correct temperature

The old setting lights up, and your newly selected setting flashes.

^ Touch the On/Off sensor to confirm a new setting.

^ Touch the X sensor repeatedly until c appears in the display.

^ Touch the On/Off sensor.

You have now left the settings mode.

22

Alarm

Your appliance has been fitted with a warning system to protect your stored wine and frozen food from an unsuitable temperature and also to avoid energy being wasted if a door is left open.

Switching the temperature alarm off early

If the noise disturbs you, you can switch the alarm off early if you wish.

Activating the alarm system

The alarm system is always active. It does not have to be switched on manually.

Temperature alarm

An alarm will sound if the temperature in the freezer section becomes warm.

An alarm will sound if the temperature in one of the wine conditioning zones becomes too warm or too cold.

The alarm off sensor will flash red and the symbol for the section or zone affected will flash.

The alarm will sound, the alarm off sensor will flash red and the relevant symbol will flash, for example,

– when freezing large amounts of food at once.

– if the doors have been left open for a while, e.g. in order to load, to re-arrange or to take out frozen food or wine bottles.

– in the event of a power cut.

The alarm will stop and the indicators will go out as soon as the temperature has reached the correct level again.

^ Touch the alarm off sensor.

The alarm will stop.

The alarm off sensor and the relevant symbol will continue to flash until the correct temperature has been reached.

However, if the temperature in the freezer section 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.

23

Alarm

Door alarm

The alarm will sound if a door is left open for more than 2 minutes.

The alarm off sensor will light up red and the symbol for the section or zones with the opened door will flash.

The alarm will stop and the indicators will go out as soon as the door is closed.

Switching the door alarm off early

If the noise of the door alarm disturbs you, you can switch it off early if you wish.

^ Touch the alarm off sensor.

The alarm will stop.

The alarm off sensor will light up constantly and the symbol for the section or zones with the opened door will continue to flash until the door has been closed.

24

Using Dynamic cooling

Humidity in the wine conditioning zones

It is very important to store wine in an atmosphere with a high humidity level

(60 - 70%) so that the corks remain moist on the outside. A refrigerator with its low humidity level is therefore not the best place to store wine. Low humidity causes corks to dry out from the outside, and so they do not seal the bottles as tightly. Wine should be stored lying down to keep the corks moist from the inside too. Air entering the bottle will inevitably spoil the wine.

Useful tip: Before serving, stand the wine upright for at least two hours, or the entire day if possible, to allow any sediment to settle at the bottom of the bottle.

Constant humidity (Dynamic cooling) sensor

m

Dynamic cooling raises the relative humidity inside the wine conditioning zones which prevents corks from drying out. Dynamic cooling also distributes the humidity and the temperature evenly around the interior so that you can store all your wine under the exactly the same excellent conditions.

Switching on Dynamic cooling

If you would like to use the wine conditioning zones to store wine long term, we recommend that you keep the dynamic cooling function switched on.

This will create a stable climate in the cabinet which imitates that of a wine cellar.

^ Select the wine conditioning zone you want to use dynamic cooling in.

The corresponding "Wine conditioning" symbol will light up yellow.

^ Touch the Constant humidity

(Dynamic cooling) sensor. It will light up yellow.

25

Using Dynamic cooling

To save energy, the fan for Dynamic cooling switches off whilst the door is open.

Switching off Dynamic cooling

^ Select the relevant wine conditioning zone.

The corresponding "Wine conditioning" symbol will light up yellow.

^ Touch the Constant humidity

(Dynamic cooling) sensor. It will dim to a pale yellow colour.

Even if dynamic cooling has not been switched on, the two fans in the appliance will come on automatically when the cooling system switches on to ensure your wine is kept in the optimum climate.

26

Using Super freeze

Switch the Super freeze function on 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.

Switching off Super freeze

Depending on the amount of food placed in the freezer section, the Super freeze function will switch off automatically after approx. 30 to 65 hours. The appliance will then continue to work at normal power.

To save energy, the Super freeze function can be switched off once a constant temperature of -18 °C or colder has been reached in the freezer section.

Switching on Super freeze

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.

^ Select the freezer section.

The "Freezing" symbol will light up yellow.

^ Select the freezer section.

The "Freezing" symbol will light up yellow.

^ Touch the Super freeze sensor. It will dim to a pale yellow colour.

The appliance will continue running at normal power.

^ Touch the Super freeze sensor. It will light up yellow.

The appliance works at full power to lower the temperature in the freezer section.

27

Storing wine bottles

Wooden shelves

Any vibration or movement of the bottle can affect the wine by interrupting the natural respiration process and so impair the taste.

As far as possible, store bottles of the same type of wine beside each other on the same shelf. Removing a bottle of one type will then leave the other types undisturbed and will avoid the need to move different bottles around.

The upper wooden shelves in each zone are on runners which can be pulled out to make it easier to store and remove bottles.

The wooden shelves can be removed if required.

^ Pull out the wooden shelf on its runners until it stops, then lift it up and out.

^ To replace the shelf, click it into place on the extended runners.

Descriptive labels

Use the labels supplied to identify your wine quickly and easily. Insert the labels into the shelf edge trim from above.

Additional labels can be purchased from your Miele Dealer or the Miele

Spare Parts Department.

Maximum capacity

A total of 41 bottles (0.75 litre) can be stored in the wine conditioning zones.

Air filtering with active charcoal filters

The active charcoal filters in the wine conditioning zones achieve optimum air quality by filtering the incoming air.

Fresh air from the outside enters the appliance via the active charcoal filters.

The dynamic cooling system then distributes the air evenly throughout the cabinet.

Filtering the incoming air through the active charcoal filters ensures that all the air entering the appliance is fresh and free from dust and smells.

This in turn ensures your wine does not absorb any unwanted odours.

Replace the active charcoal filters with new ones once a year (see

"Cleaning and care"). These are available from Miele Dealer or the

Miele Spare Parts Department.

28

Freezing and storing food

Maximum freezing capacity

To ensure that fresh food placed in the freezer section 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.

Storing frozen food

When buying frozen food to store in your freezer section, 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 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.

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.

29

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, pastry, leftovers, egg yolks, egg whites and a range of pre-cooked 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 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

30 lightly before freezing, but care should be taken as the taste of some spices alters when frozen.

– Do not place hot foods or drinks in the freezer. This causes already frozen food to thaw, and increases the energy consumption considerably. Allow hot foods and drinks to cool down before placing them in the freezer.

Packing

^ Freeze food in portions.

Unsuitable packing material

- wrapping paper

- grease-proof paper

- cellophane

- bin bags

- plastic carrier bags

Suitable packing material

- plastic freezer film

- freezer bags

- aluminium foil

- freezer containers

^ Expel as much air as possible from bags etc. before sealing them, to prevent freezer-burn on food.

^ Close the packaging tightly with

- rubber bands

- plastic clips

- string or bag ties

- freezer tape.

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

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

Freezing and storing food

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

"Super freeze").

This also helps to prevent food that is already in the freezer from starting to defrost.

When freezing, make sure that food already frozen does not come into contact with fresh food being frozen as this could cause the frozen food to begin to defrost.

Freezing large items

If you wish to freeze large items such as a turkey or game, the glass cold plates between the drawers can be removed. To do this:

^ Remove the freezer drawers and carefully slide out the glass cold plates.

Placing food in the freezer section

Food to be frozen can be placed anywhere in the freezer.

Large quantities should be placed directly on the glass cold plates to freeze the food quickly. To do this take out the freezer drawers, leaving the bottom drawer in the appliance. The lowest freezer drawer must always remain in the appliance.

When removing the top drawers, make sure that you do not block the ventilation slits in the back wall of the appliance. They are important for trouble-free operation of the appliance.

Freezer calendar

The freezer calendar on the freezer drawer gives the length of time in months which various foods can be stored for effectively.

Where the storage time given on the packaging differs, follow the advice on the packaging.

Each drawer and each of the glass cold plates can be loaded with a maximum of 25 kg.

^ Place the food flat in the bottom of the freezer drawers or on the glass cold plates so that it freezes through to the core as quickly as possible.

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

2-3 months:

Cakes, ice cream, stew

3-5 months:

Fish, mushrooms, bread

6-8 months:

Pork, veal, poultry

10-12 months:

Beef, fruit, vegetables

31

Freezing and storing food

Defrosting

Frozen food can be defrosted in different ways:

– in a microwave oven,

– in an oven using the "Fan" or

"Defrost" setting,

– at room temperature,

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

– in a steam oven.

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.

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.

Cooling drinks

When cooling drinks quickly, make sure bottles are not left in the freezer for

more than one hour, as they could burst.

Freezer tray

The freezer tray is useful for freezing small items such as berries, herbs and vegetables. They can be frozen individually and therefore maintain their shape when defrosted.

^ Space the food out loosely on the tray.

^ Hang the tray in one of the upper freezer drawers.

Leave the food for 10-12 hours to freeze thoroughly on the tray. Transfer it to a freezer bag or suitable container once frozen. Place the bag or container in the freezer drawer.

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.

32

Cool pack

The cool pack prevents the temperature in the freezer rising too quickly in the event of a power cut.

Place the cool pack in the top drawer of the freezer section, directly on top of the food. The cool pack will be at its most effective after it has been in the freezer for approx. 24 hours.

If there is a power cut, place the cool pack directly on top of the frozen food in the top drawer so that the food will be kept cold for as long as possible.

When placing fresh food in the freezer, use the cool pack to separate the fresh food from the food which is already frozen so that the frozen food does not begin to thaw.

The cool pack can also be used in a cool bag to keep food or drinks cool for a short period of time.

Freezing and storing food

33

Making ice cubes

For the automatic ice cube maker to operate it must be connected to the mains water supply.

Switching on the ice cube maker

^ Switch on the freezer section.

^ Open the top left drawer a little.

To ensure that the water pipes are thoroughly flushed through before use, ice cubes from the first three ice cube making processes must not be consumed.

This applies not only to when the appliance is installed for the first time but also if the appliance has been out of use for a longer period

(e.g. whilst on holiday).

Making a large amount of ice cubes

The amount of ice cubes which the appliance makes depends on the temperature in the freezer section. The lower the temperature, the more ice cubes are produced within a certain time frame.

^ Press the On/Off button on the ice cube maker. The indicator light will come on.

^ Close the drawer.

The drawer must be completely shut for ice cubes to be produced.

After the appliance is switched on for the first time it can take up to 24 hours for the first ice cubes to drop out of the ice cube maker and collect in the drawer.

Thereafter, when the ice cube maker is switched off and then on again it will take up to a maximum of 6 hours for ice cubes to be produced.

Ice cube production is halted automatically as soon as the ice cube drawer is full.

If you require a large amount of ice cubes,

^ replace the full ice cube drawer with the drawer beside it on the right.

The ice cube maker will begin to produce ice cubes again as soon as this new drawer has been placed in position and closed properly.

34

Making ice cubes

Switching off the ice cube maker

The ice cube maker can be switched off independently of the freezer section if you do not want the appliance to make any ice cubes.

Setting the water intake time for the ice cube maker

The size of the ice cubes produced depends on the water pressure present and the water intake time which has been set for the ice cube maker.

If the ice cube maker is only producing small ice cubes the water pressure is low. In order to produce larger ice cubes, the water intake time for the ice cube maker needs to be prolonged.

^ Switch the ice cube maker on.

^ Press the On/Off button on the ice cube maker until the indicator light goes out.

If the ice cube maker is switched off, the ice cube drawer can be used as an extra drawer for freezing fresh food and storing frozen food.

^ Touch and leave your finger on the X sensor.

Clean the ice cube tray if the ice cube maker is going to be switched off for a long period of time.

^ At the same time, briefly touch the

On/Off sensor (without letting go of the

X sensor).

^ Leave your finger on the X sensor for another 5 seconds until c appears in the display.

^ Touch the X sensor repeatedly until e appears in the display.

You have now left the settings mode.

36

Automatic defrost

Wine conditioning zones

The wine conditioning zones defrost automatically.

Condensate and frost can build up on the back wall of the wine conditioning zones whilst they are in use. These are automatically removed and defrosted by the appliance.

Ensure that the condensate channel and drain hole are kept clean and are never blocked so that condensate can flow away without hindrance.

Freezer section

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

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

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

37

Cleaning and care

^ A range of Miele branded cleaning agents is available from the Miele

Spare Parts Department, or via the internet at www.miele-shop.com.

Never use cleaning agents containing abrasive substances such as sand, soda, acids, chlorides or chemical solvents. "Non-abrasive" cleaning agents are also unsuitable as they can cause matt areas to appear.

For stainless steel surfaces use a stainless steel conditioning agent.

Do not let water get into the controls, the lighting or the ventilation gaps.

Do not let water get into the drainage channel and drain hole when cleaning.

Do not use 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.

Before cleaning

^ Switch the appliance off, switch off at the socket and remove the plug.

^ Take any wine bottles and frozen food out of the appliance and store in a cool place.

^ Take out any removable parts, e.g.

shelves, for cleaning.

Cleaning the outer casing, the interior and accessories

^ Clean the appliance at least once a month. Clean all parts by hand. Do not wash in a dishwasher.

^ Clean the interior with a solution of lukewarm water and a little washing-up liquid.

^ Wipe the wooden shelves with a dry, fluff-free cloth. Do not clean the wooden shelves with water.

^ Clean the condensate channel and drain hole in the wine conditioning zones frequently, so that condensate can drain away unhindered. Use a straw or similar to clear the drain if necessary (see "Cleaning the condensate drain hole").

^ After cleaning, wipe the outer casing, the interior and accessories with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth.

Leave the doors open to air the appliance for a short while.

^ Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned with a proprietary stainless steel cleaning agent, following the manufacturer's instructions on the packaging.

^ After cleaning, stainless steel surfaces should be treated with a conditioning agent for stainless steel.

38

Cleaning and care

It is important to do this every time the stainless steel surfaces are cleaned, as the stainless steel conditioner protects the surfaces and helps prevent re-soiling.

Cleaning the condensate drain hole

^ Remove the wooden shelves from the wine conditioning zones.

^ Unscrew the runners at the right and left.

^ Take off the cover caps and undo the screws on the metal cover a.

^ Lift up the metal cover b and remove it by pulling it forwards c.

^ Clean the drain hole using a cotton bud.

^ After cleaning, refit the metal covers and the runners and replace the wooden shelves.

Cleaning the ice cube tray

The ice cubes are formed in a tray before they are dropped down into the drawer.

This tray should be cleaned regularly to remove any stale ice or water.

^ Connect the appliance to the electricity supply.

^ Open the top left drawer a little.

^ Press the On/Off button on the ice cube maker. The indicator light will come on.

^ Empty the ice cube drawer.

^ Press the On/Off button on the ice cube maker and hold it pressed in for approx. 10 seconds (after about a second, the ice cube maker will switch off and the indicator light will go out).

The indicator light will flash.

^ Push the ice cube drawer in as far as it will go within the next 60 seconds.

The ice cube tray will then rotate into an angled position which makes it easier for cleaning:

39

Cleaning and care

^ Wait until the ice cube tray has completed this rotation before continuing.

If the ice cube maker has not been used for a while, it is important to clean the ice cube tray before using it again.

Door seals

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

The door seals should be cleaned regularly with clean water and then wiped dry with a soft cloth.

Metal grille at the back of the appliance

The 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.

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

If you have used a solution of water and washing-up liquid to clean it, discard the ice cubes from the first three ice cube making processes, as they are not suitable for consumption.

Ventilation gaps

^ The ventilation gaps should be cleaned on a regular basis with a brush or vacuum cleaner. A build-up of dust will increase the energy consumption of the appliance.

40

After cleaning

^ Put the wooden shelves back in the wine conditioning zones.

^ Put the wine bottles back in the wine conditioning zones and close both the appliance doors.

^ Insert the plug in the socket and switch the appliance back on.

^ Switch on the Super freeze function so that the freezer section can cool down quickly.

^ Once the temperature in the freezer section has reached the required temperature place the food back in the freezer drawers and place them back in the freezer section.

Repairs to electrical appliances should only be carried out by a suitably qualified and competent person in strict accordance with current local and national safety regulations. Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for unauthorised work.

What to do if . . .

. . . the temperature in the wine conditioning zones or freezer section is too low.

^ Select a warmer temperature.

^ Check that the doors have been closed properly.

^ Has a large amount of fresh food been put in at the same time for freezing.

This makes the compressor run for longer, causing the temperature to fall automatically.

^ Super freeze has not switched itself off.

. . . the wine conditioning zones or the freezer section do not get cool.

^ Check whether the relevant zone or section is switched on. The temperature display must be lit up.

^ Check that the plug is correctly inserted into the socket and switched on.

^ Check that the fuse is not defective and that the mains fuse has not tripped. If it has, contact the Miele

Service Department.

. . . the door to the freezer section will not open because it has been opened and closed too many times in succession.

This is not a fault. The suction caused by opening and closing the door is preventing the door from opening. Wait a few minutes and then try again. It should now open without force.

. . . the compressor is switching in too frequently and for too long.

^ Check whether the ventilation gaps have been covered over or become dusty.

^ Check whether the metal grille (heat exchanger) at the back of the appliance has become too dusty.

^ The doors have been opened too frequently, or a large amount of fresh food has been put in at once for freezing.

^ Check that the doors have been closed properly.

. . . food has frozen together.

Use a blunt instrument, e.g. a spoon handle or plastic scraper, to prise it apart carefully.

44

Problem solving guide

. . . the frozen food is thawing because the freezer section is too warm.

^ Is the room temperature lower than the ambient temperature for which the appliance is designed?

. . . "

_F" appears in the temperature

display.

There is a fault. Call the Service

Department.

If so, raise the temperature of the room.

Operating in a room which is too cold will cause the cooling system to switch off for too long, causing the freezer section to become too warm.

. . . the Change the active charcoal filter indicator is red.

^ Replace the active charcoal filters.

You can order replacement filters via your Miele dealer or the Miele Spare

Parts Department.

. . . the alarm sounds and the alarm off sensor is flashing.

The wine conditioning zones are too warm or too cold in relation to the set temperature or the freezer section is too warm in relation to the set temperature because

^ the doors have been opened too frequently, large amounts of fresh food have been put in at once for freezing or many bottles of wine have been placed in the appliance.

^ the ventilation gaps are blocked.

Once the problem has been resolved and the correct temperature has been reached, the alarm indicator will go out and the alarm will stop.

. . . bars light up in the temperature displays.

Check the temperature displays about

6 hours after switching on the appliance. The display will not show a temperature until the temperature in the appliance has reached a certain level.

. . . "nA" appears in the temperature

display.

The temperature has risen too high at some point during the last couple of days because of a power cut.

^ Touch the alarm off sensor whilst "nA" is lit up in the display.

The temperature display will show the warmest temperature recorded in the freezer section during the power cut.

Depending on the temperature displayed, you should check the condition of food in the freezer. If food has defrosted or started to defrost, check that it is still safe to use, and if so, use it as quickly as possible.

Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

The warmest temperature will show in the display for about 1 minute. The current temperature in the freezer will then show in the display again.

The lighting switches itself off automatically after approx. 15 minutes if the door is left open.

If this is not the case, then the interior lighting is defective.

^ Call the Service Department.

The LED lighting may only be repaired or changed by a service technician.

Danger of injury and damage.

Should the cover be damaged or need to be removed due to damage,

exercise caution. Never look at the lighting with optical instruments

(magnifying glass or similar).

. . . the ice cube maker is only producing small ice cubes.

The size of ice cubes which are produced over a certain period of time will depend on the water pressure present.

If the ice cube maker is only producing small cubes of ice this means that the water pressure is low.

46

. . . mildew has begun to form on the wine bottle labels.

Mildew can begin to form on the labels, depending on the type of adhesive used.

^ Wash the wine bottles and remove any adhesive residue.

. . . the floor of the lower wine conditioning zone is wet.

The condensate drain hole is blocked.

^ Clean the condensate channel and drain hole.

If you still cannot remedy the fault having followed these suggestions, please contact the Miele Service

Please make sure you follow the instructions below carefully when you refit the handle. The door seal will be damaged if the handle is fitted incorrectly.

It is important to check that the side section of the handle d does not come into contact with the door seal when opening the door, as this would damage the door seal permanently.

If, after you have refitted the handle, you find that the side section does touch the door seal when the door is opened:

^ Realign mounting plate c with grub screws a until the mounting plate and the side section of the handle d are at the correct angle and the side section does not touch the door seal when the door is opened.

^ Loosely attach the handle to the opposite side of the door with the two front screws b.

Mounting plate c must be positioned on the side of the door so that when the door is closed it is flush with the side of the appliance.

If this is not the case,

^ tighten both grub screws a with a suitable allen key until mounting plate c lines up correctly.

^ Then tighten all 4 fixing screws b.

^ Slide the side section of the handle d into the guides on the mounting plate until it clicks into place.

In the following illustration the door is shown open to make it easier to see what you have to do.

Align the lower door using the long outer slots in the lower hinge plate:

Align the upper door using the long outer slots in the middle hinge plate:

^ Slightly loosen both screws c.

^ Align the door by sliding the hinge plate to the left or right.

^ Then tighten screws c.

^ Remove centre screw a from the hinge plate.

^ Slightly loosen both outer screws b.

^ Align the door by sliding the hinge plate to the left or right.

^ Then tighten screws b again. Screw a does not need to be refitted.

Building in the appliance

a Top box b Appliance c Housing unit d Wall

The appliance can be installed in a kitchen run. To match the height of the rest of the kitchen, the appliance can be fitted with a suitable top box a.

A ventilation gap of at least 50 mm depth must be allowed for behind the appliance across the entire width of the top box for air to circulate.

The cross section of the air outlet under the room ceiling must be at least

300 cm

2 to ensure that air can circulate without hindrance. Otherwise the appliance has to work harder, resulting in an increase in electricity consumption.

The air inlet and outlet must not be covered or blocked in any way.

They should be dusted on a regular basis.

When built into a kitchen run (max.

depth 580 mm) the appliance can be installed directly next to a kitchen furniture housing unit. The appliance door will protrude in front of furniture fronts at the sides by 34 mm and by

55 mm in the middle of the door. This enables the doors to be opened and shut without being obstructed.

When installed next to a wall d a distance of approx. 55 mm must be maintained on the hinge side between the wall d and the appliance b, so that the doors and the handles have sufficient space for opening.
