6

Caring for the environment

Disposal of the packing material

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

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

Disposal of your old appliance

Electrical and electronic appliances often contain valuable materials. They also contain materials which, if handled or disposed of incorrectly, could be potentially hazardous to human health and to the environment. They are, however, essential for the correct functioning of your appliance. Please do not therefore dispose of it with your household waste.

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

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

Technical safety

~

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

~

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 installation 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,

– disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply,

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

– call the Service department.

10

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 m 3 of room space is required. The amount of coolant in the appliance is stated on the data plate inside the appliance.

~

To avoid the risk of damage to the appliance, make sure that the connection data (fuse rating, frequency and voltage) on the data plate corresponds to the household supply.

Check that this is the case before connecting the appliance. Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.

~

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

~

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

~

Do not use in a damp environment (e.g. garage or utility room).

Moisture could reach live components or the electrical connection and cause a short circuit.

18

Switching on and off

Before using for the first time Switching on

Protective foil

The stainless steel trim to the interior shelves and the door shelves has a layer of protective foil to prevent damage during transportation.

^ Carefully remove the protective foil from the stainless steel trim.

Cleaning

^ Clean the inside of the appliance and the accessories. See "Cleaning and care" for more information.

Accessories

^ Press the On/Off button.

The appliance will start to cool and the temperature required will appear in the temperature display. The interior lighting will come on when the door is opened.

To enable the temperature to get sufficiently cold inside the appliance, allow the appliance to run for a few hours before placing food in it.

Switching off

^ Attach the bottle holder centrally along the rear edge of the bottle shelf, as shown.

The flexible ribs grip the bottles securely when the door is opened and closed.

^ Press the On/Off button until the display goes out.

The cooling system switches off. If this does not happen, the safety lock is still activated (see "Selecting settings - To deactivate the lock").

19

Switching 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,

^ disconnect it from the mains,

^ clean the appliance out and

^ leave the doors ajar to air it.

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.

20

The correct temperature

It is very important to set the correct temperature for storing food in the appliance. Micro-organisms will cause food which is not stored at the correct temperature to deteriorate rapidly.

Temperature influences the growth rate of these micro-organisms. Reducing the temperature reduces their growth rate.

The temperature in the appliance will rise:

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

– the more food that is placed in it,

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

– the higher the ambient temperature surrounding the appliance.

The appliance is designed for use in specific ambient temperatures

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

. . . in the refrigerator

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

. . . in the freezer

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.

21

The correct temperature

Temperature display

The temperature display on the control panel always shows the

required temperature.

Setting the temperature

The higher or lower the temperature in the refrigerator, the higher or lower it is in the freezer section.

For example, if you want to set the temperature for the refrigerator section at 4 °C,

^ Press the temperature selector button repeatedly until the lights up in the temperature display.

The average temperature in the freezer section will then be approx. -18 °C.

However, if frozen food is to be stored in the freezer section then a setting of between 3 °C to 5 °C is recommended to ensure that the required temperature in the freezer section is maintained.

It is also advisable to set the temperature within this range if the doors are opened frequently, large quantities of food are being stored in the appliance or there is a high ambient temperature.

^ Press the temperature selector button repeatedly until the temperature you want appears in the temperature display.

The first time you press the button the last temperature selected will flash in the display.

The temperature value will change up until the setting for 9°C is reached. It will then drop back to the 1°C setting.

The newly selected temperature will be adopted automatically after a short while.

The temperature in the appliance will adjust slowly until it is at this value.

Temperature and door alarm

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

Temperature alarm

An alarm will sound if the temperature in the freezer section becomes too warm. The temperature display and the alarm symbol

; will also flash.

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

For example, the alarm may sound and the temperature display and the Alarm symbol

; may flash,

– when freezing large amounts of food at once,

– when freezing fresh food which is still warm,

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

– in the event of a power cut,

– if the appliance has a fault.

The alarm will stop and the Alarm symbol

; will go out when the temperature reaches the correct level again.

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 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.

Door alarm

The alarm will sound if a door is left open for more than 60 seconds.

The alarm will stop as soon as the door is closed.

Switching the alarm off early

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

^ Press the alarm off button.

The alarm will stop.

If the alarm is due to the temperature rising, the alarm symbol

26

Storing food in the refrigerator section

Different storage zones

Due to the natural circulation of the air in the appliance, there are different temperature zones in the refrigerator.

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

Warmest area

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

Coldest area

The coldest area in the refrigerator section is directly above the fruit and vegetables drawer (depending on model) or above the fruit and vegetable drawer (depending on model) and at the back of the appliance.

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

– fish, meat, poultry,

– sausage products, ready meals,

– dishes or baked goods containing eggs or cream,

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

– soft cheese and other dairy products,

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

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

Danger of explosion.

If storing alcohol with a high percentage proof, make sure it is tightly closed, and store upright.

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

Food must not touch the back wall, as it may freeze to the back wall.

To allow air to circulate efficiently, do not pack food too closely together in the refrigerator. Do not cover the fan in the rear wall of the refrigerator, as this is essential for keeping the appliance cool.

27

Storing food in the refrigerator section

Food which is not suitable for storing in the refrigerator

Not all food is suitable for storing in a refrigerator at temperatures below 5°C as some food is sensitive to cold.

The appearance, consistency, taste and / or the vitamin content of certain types of food can be adversely affected by being stored in too cold a place.

Food which does not tolerate cold temperatures includes:

– Pineapples, avocados, bananas, pomegranates, mangos, melons, papayas, passion fruit, citrus fruit (such as lemons, oranges, mandarins, grapefruit),

– Fruit which is not yet ripe,

– Aubergines/egg plant, cucumber, potatoes, peppers/capiscum, tomatoes, courgettes/zucchini,

– Some hard cheeses, e.g. Parmesan.

When shopping for food

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

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

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.

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

28

Storing food in the refrigerator section

Storing food correctly

Food should generally be stored

covered or packaged. This will prevent food smells from affecting other food, food from drying out, and also any cross-contamination of bacteria. This is particularly important for protein-based food such as meat or fish.

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

Fruit and vegetables

Fruit and vegetables can be stored loose in the the fruit and vegetable containers or drawer (depending on model).

Protein rich food

Please note that food rich in protein deteriorates faster than others.

Shellfish, for example, deteriorates faster than fish, and fish deteriorates faster than meat.

29

Adjusting the interior fittings

Adjusting the door shelf/bottle shelf

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

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

Moving the bottle holder

Moving the shelves

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

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

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

Stoppers prevent the shelves from being dislodged by mistake.

The bottle holder can be moved to the left or right to create more room for drinks cartons, for example.

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

^ Push the bottle shelf upwards, then remove it by pulling it forwards.

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

30

Freezing and storing food

Maximum freezing capacity

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

"Freezing capacity ....kg/24 hrs".

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

Standard.

Freezing fresh food

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

Food which takes a long time to freeze will lose more water from its cells, which then shrink.

During the defrosting process, only some of this water is reabsorbed by the cells; the rest collects around the food.

In practice this means that the food loses a large degree of its moisture.

You can tell if this has happened by the amount of liquid around the food.

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

Storing frozen food

When buying frozen food to store in your freezer, check

– that the packaging is not damaged,

– the use-by date,

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

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

^ Store it in the freezer 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.

31

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

– Do not place hot food or drinks in the freezer. This causes already frozen food to thaw, and increases the energy consumption considerably.

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

Packaging

^ Freeze food in portions.

Unsuitable packaging material

- wrapping paper

- grease-proof paper

- cellophane

- bin bags

- plastic carrier bags

Suitable packaging 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.

32

Freezing and storing food

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

Before placing food in the freezer section

^ When freezing more than 1 kg of fresh food, switch on the Super freeze function for some time before placing the food in the freezer (see

"Using Super freeze").

This helps food that is already in the freezer section to stay frozen.

Placing food in the freezer section

The following maximum capacities must be observed:

– freezer drawer = 25 kg

– glass cold plate = 35 kg

Food to be frozen must on no account touch food which is already frozen to avoid partial thawing.

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

– Freezing small amounts of food

Place the food in the upper freezer drawers.

^ Place the food flat in the bottom of the drawers so that it freezes through to the core as quickly as possible.

– Freezing the maximum amount

(see data plate)

^ Remove the upper freezer drawers.

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

Once frozen:

^ Place the frozen food in the freezer drawers and push them back into the appliance.

– 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.

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

33

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.

Ensure that meat and fish (e.g mince, chicken, fish fillets) do not come into contact with other foods while defrosting. Catch the liquid and dispose of it carefully.

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

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

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.

Ice cubes

^ Fill the ice tray three quarters full with water, and place it in the bottom of one of the drawers.

^ Once frozen, use a blunt instrument, for example a spoon handle, to remove the ice tray from the freezer.

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

Cooling drinks

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

34

Defrosting

Refrigerator section

The refrigerator section defrosts automatically.

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

The condensate is drained away via a channel and drain hole into an evaporation system at the back of 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 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.

35

Cleaning and care

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

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

Do not use steam cleaning apparatus to clean the appliance.

Steam could reach 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.

To avoid damaging the surfaces of your appliance, do not use:

The following are dishwasher safe:

– the bottle holder, egg trays, ice cube tray

(supplied as standard, depending on model)

– the shelves and bottle shelf in the door

– the adjustable shelves (excluding any stainless steel trim or protective strip)

The temperature of the dishwasher programme must not exceed 55 °C.

Contact with some foodstuffs, such as carrots, tomatoes or ketchup can cause plastic items to discolour.

However, this discolouration will not affect the stability of plastic items.

The following are not dishwasher safe:

– the stainless steel trim and the protective strips on the shelves and door shelves

– the fruit and vegetable drawer

– the freezer drawers

^ These should all be hand washed.

^ Clean the condensate channel and drain hole frequently, so that condensate can drain away unhindered. Use a straw or similar to clear the drain hole if necessary.

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

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.

37

Cleaning and care

Door seals

Do not use any oils or grease on the door seals as these will cause the seal 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.

After cleaning

^ Replace all shelves and accessories in the appliance.

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

^ Switch on the Super freeze function for a while so that the appliance can cool down quickly.

Two people are needed for installing this appliance.

^ The appliance must be installed in stable and correctly aligned kitchen furniture on a level surface.

^ The housing unit must be secured against the risk of tipping.

Building in the appliance

To install the appliance you will need the following tools:

^ Use a spirit level to align the housing unit.

The unit corners must be at right angles, as otherwise the furniture door will not align correctly with the 4 corners of the unit.

^ The required ventilation gaps must be provided (see "Installation -

Ventilation gaps").

57

Building in the appliance

The following installation parts are required

All installation parts are number coded.

This coding is also used in the installation instructions.

– required for installing the appliance in its housing unit:

– required for fitting the furniture door:

All fitting instructions given are for a

right-hand hinged appliance. If you have converted the appliance to left-hand hinging you will need to adapt these instructions accordingly.

^ Position the appliance in front of the housing unit.

58

^ Fit cover strip a into position.

Building in the appliance

^ Push the appliance two-thirds of the way into its niche.

When doing this, make sure that the mains cable does not get trapped.

Tip to help you push it into position:

Secure a length of string to the plug to

"increase" the length of the connection cable.

Then pull the cable by the end of the string through the housing unit. It will then be easier to connect once the appliance is in the unit.

^ Screw in adjustable foot f completely.

^ Screw the second adjustable foot g right into bearing block h.

^ Remove cover b from the top corner of the appliance.

^ Secure part c using screws d loosely into the top left-hand side of the appliance.

^ Remove cover e.

59

Building in the appliance

Installing the appliance

^ Carefully remove the protective foil from sealing strip i.

^ Fix sealing strip i flush with the front of the appliance on the door opening side.

1. Position the sealing strip flush with the lower edge of the top fixing.

2. Stick it down along its entire length.

^ Screw the lower fixing bracket j using screws k loosely into the bottom of the appliance.

^ Push the appliance into the niche:

– until the top fixing bracket c touches the front edge of the furniture side wall.

– until the front edge of lower left-hand fixing bracket j and the lower right-hand fixing bracket is flush with the front edge of housing unit base.

A gap of 42 mm (from the appliance carcase to the front edge of the furniture side walls) must be maintained.

60

Building in the appliance

If the all round gap of 42 mm is not maintained between the appliance casing and the front edge of the housing unit side walls the door may

not shut properly.

This can cause ice to build up, condensate to accumulate and lead to faults in the appliance. These can all lead to increased energy consumption.

On furniture with door fittings (e.g.

stubs, seals etc) the dimension of these must be taken into account to ensure there is a gap all round of

42 mm.

^ Pull the appliance forwards by the dimension of the door fitting to keep the gap at 42 mm all round.

Tip: Remove the door fittings. This will ensure that the door is flush with the surrounding kitchen unit furniture doors.

^ Align the appliance on both side using the adjustable feet.

61

Building in the appliance

^ Carefully unscrew adjusting screw l in the middle hinge plate until it touches the side wall of the furniture housing unit.

^ Tighten screws k in fixing bracket j.

Securing the appliance in the niche

Before securing the appliance in its niche make sure that both lower fixing brackets are flush with the front of the unit base.

^ Press the appliance up against the furniture wall and then secure the appliance with screws m through fixing bracket c.

^ Press the appliance up against the furniture wall and then secure fixing bracket j using screw n to the unit base.

^ Secure the appliance by fitting screw o into bearing block h.

^ Finally secure the appliance at the side by fitting screw o through the middle bearing block p.

Tighten all the screws.

62

For additional stability of the appliance in the unit, push the rods supplied in underneath the appliance between it and the floor of the housing unit.

Building in the appliance

^ If necessary, align the cover strip by pushing it parallel to the top of the unit - it should be set slightly back and must not protrude.

^ Then secure handle q to one of the rods r.

^ Use the handle to push the rod into the guide as far as it will go.

Remove the handle and fit it to the other rod and push this into its guide as far as it will go.

Important. Keep the handle somewhere safe in case you ever need to fit the appliance into a new housing unit.

^ Close the appliance doors.

^ Snap off any protuding end s on the top fixing bracket c. It is no longer required.

^ Refit cover b.

^ Refit cover e.

^ Push the plastic tab into the left-hand aperture in cover t, and then fit the cover in position.

63

Building in the appliance

^ Flip the cover on fixing bracket j down.

Securing the furniture door to the appliance door

^ Position the furniture door onto the appliance door, and secure fixing guides w to the furniture door using screws x. Maintain a distance d (= the thickness of the housing unit walls) between the edge of the appliance door and outer edge of the furniture door.

^ Align the door fixing so that the furniture door on the side with the handle does not lie against the housing unit wall when the door is shut. A minimum distance of 1 mm must be maintained. This is vital for the longterm effectiveness of the insulation and ventilation.

^ Tighten all screws again.

^ Secure door fixing u to the appliance doors using screws v.

^ Open the door fully and push fixing guides w into door fixing u.
