Description of the appliance
Roasting filter
The anti-splash tray should be placed
inside the deep sided grill pan when
grilling or roasting.
The juices from the food being cooked
collect under the anti-splash tray. This
prevents them from spitting and making
the oven dirty. The juices can then be
used for making gravy and sauces.
Handle
The roasting filter must be fitted in front
of the fan when cooking anything fatty
or where food is likely to splatter, e.g.
when open roasting and grilling meat.
The droplets of fat caught up in the
circulating air are deposited on the
roasting filter. This helps to keep the
oven and the area behind the interior
back panel cleaner.
Do not use the roasting filter when
baking. This would increase the
times needed for baking and give
uneven browning results.
Anti-splash tray
6
To take the racks, baking trays or the
grill pan out of the oven, or to put them
into it. The two prongs at the top go
inside the rack, tray or pan and the
U-shaped supports underneath.
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.
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!
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.
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.
It should be unplugged or disconnected
from the mains electricity supply by a
competent person.

8
Children should be supervised to
ensure that they do not play with
the appliance.
Technical safety
Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply make sure that
the voltage and frequency correspond
to the rating on the data plate,
otherwise the appliance could be
damaged. Consult a competent person
if in 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
regulations. It is most important that this
basic safety requirement is present and
regularly tested, and where there is any
doubt the household wiring system
should be inspectedby a qualified
electrician. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for the consequences of an
inadequate earthing system (e.g.
electric shock).
This appliance must only be
operated as a built-in appliance.
This is necessary to ensure that all
electrical components are shielded.
Never open the casing of the
appliance. Tampering with
electrical connections or components
and mechanical parts is highly
dangerous to the user and can cause
operational faults.
Warning and Safety instructions
Installation work and repairs may
only be carried out by a suitably
qualified and competent person in
accordance with national and local
safety regulations. Repairs and other
work by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot
be held liable for unauthorised work.
If the supply cord is damaged, it
must be replaced by a Miele
approved service technician in order
avoid a hazard.
During installation, maintenance
and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains
electricity supply. The appliance is only
completely isolated from the electricity
supply when:
– it is switched off at the wall socket
– or the mains fuse is withdrawn
– or the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
Ensure that current is not supplied to
the appliance until after maintenance or
repair work has been carried out.
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an

covered by the appliance guarantee.
Use
Caution, danger of burning.
High temperatures are produced by
the oven.
Great care should be taken to
ensure that small children do not
touch the appliance when it is being
used. Children's skin is far more
sensitive to high temperatures than that
of adults. External parts of the oven
such as the door glass, handle vent
and control panel can become quite
hot.
Children should not be left alone or
unattended in an area where an
oven is in use. They should never be
allowed to sit or stand on any part of
the oven or play with it.
Do not store items of interest to children
in cabinets above an oven. Children
climbing on the oven to reach these
items could be seriously injured.
Use of heat-resistant oven gloves
is recommended when placing
food in the oven, turning or removing it.
When working with "Conventional"
heating or when grilling, the element in
the roof of the oven and the roof liner
become very hot, and there is a danger
of being burnt.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
When cleaning the roof of the oven
wait until the grill element has
cooled down before lowering it, to
avoid the danger of burning.
Do not use force to pull it down as
this can cause the element to break.
Do not use plastic containers. They
melt at high temperatures and
could damage the oven.
Do not heat up unopened tins or
jars of food in the oven, as pressure
can build up and they may explode. This
could result in injury or damage.
Do not push pots and pans around
on the oven floor as this could
damage the surface.
Do not lean or sit on an open oven
door, or place heavy items on it.
This could damage the appliance. Take
care in the region of the hinges. The
oven door can support a maximum load
of 15 kg.
To prevent the risk of damage when
closing the oven door, hold the
handle firmly and do not let go of it until
it is shut. Make sure that nothing gets
trapped between the door and the oven.
Cover any food which is left in the
oven to be kept hot. This avoids the
food drying out. It also prevents steam
condensing and possibly leading to
moisture damage in the oven.
If food is left in the oven after
cooking, e.g. to take advantage of
the residual heat, turn the temperature
selector to the lowest setting. Leave the
function selector at the position set.
Do not switch the appliance off until the
food has been removed.
10
Moisture in the oven could lead to
condensation forming on the control
panel and surrounding kitchen furniture
and drops of moisture collecting under
the worktop.
Condensation can:
– damage the housing unit / worktop.
– lead to moisture damage in the oven.
Bake larger deep-frozen items such
as pizzas on baking paper on the
rack itself or in the pizza pan (see "Extra
accessories"). Placing them on the
baking tray or in the grill pan can cause
the metal to distort. This distortion would
increase with subsequent use.
Deep frozen foods such as oven chips
or potato croquettes can be cooked on
the baking tray or grill pan.
Never add water to food on a hot
baking tray or grill pan or directly
onto food in a hot oven. The steam
created could cause serious burns or
scalding and the sudden change in
temperature can damage the enamel.
Never line the floor of the oven with
aluminium foil when using
Conventional top and bottom heat A or
Bottom heat B. Do not place a dish,
tin, baking tray or grill pan on the floor
of the oven.
If using a grill pan or baking tray made
by a different manufacturer make sure
that there is a gap of at least 6 cm
between the bottom of the pan and the
floor of the oven.
If these instructions are not observed
the bottom heat will be blocked. This
can cause permanent damage to the
floor of the oven.
Warning and Safety instructions
Protective aluminium foil panels are
available in retail outlets which are
supposed to protect the oven cavity
from soiling and reduce the need for
cleaning. If used, cooking and baking
times will increase considerably.
They can also cause damage to the
appliance (e.g. by blocking the heat).
General notes
Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oils
and fats as these are a fire hazard if
allowed to overheat.
Do not use the oven to heat up the
room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects left near the oven
could catch fire.
Under no circumstances use a
steam cleaner to clean this
appliance. The steam could attack the
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated.
Many factors will affect the overall
cooking time, including the size and
amount of food, its temperature,
changes to the recipe and the shape
and size of cooking container. Some
foods may contain micro organisms
which are only destroyed by thorough
cooking at temperatures over 70°C for
a minimum of 10 minutes. Therefore
when cooking or reheating foods, e.g.
poultry, it is particularly important that
food is fully cooked through. If in doubt
select a longer cooking or reheating
time.
It is important that the heat is allowed to
spread evenly throughout the food
being cooked.
This can be achieved by stirring and/or
turning the food, and by observing a
sufficiently long standing time, which
should be added to the time needed for
cooking, reheating or defrosting.
When using kitchen appliances
connected to sockets near the
oven, ensure that the cable cannot get
trapped in a hot oven door, which could
melt the cable insulation.
Danger of electric shock.
If using alcohol in your recipes
high temperatures can cause the
alcohol to vaporise and under adverse
circumstances the alcohol can catch
light on the hot heating elements.
Alcohol should be burnt off before the
dish is placed in the oven to avoid this
danger.
Disposal of your old appliance
Before throwing an old appliance
away it must first be made
unusable. Switch off and disconnect it
from the power. This should be done by
a competent person.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
11
Safety feature
Operating lock for the bottom
oven
The operating lock can be activated to
prevent the bottom oven being
switched on unintentionally, by children
for example.
The operating lock is activated as
follows:
The function selector must be set to
the "0" position.
^ Press the "f" button until the key
symbol "o--§" appears in the display
field.
Now the bottom oven cannot be
switched on.
12
To cancel the operating lock:
It does not matter which oven function
has been selected.
^ Press the "f" button until the key
symbol "o--§" disappears from the
display field.
After a power cut the operating lock
has to be reset.
Before using for the first time
Setting the clock
When the appliance is first connected
to the power supply, or after a power
cut "12:00" and the symbols "f" and
")" flash in the display.
^ Press the buttons "f" and ")" at
the same time.
The following light up:
– "12:00" in the display,
– the "+/–" button indicator light.
Before using the oven for the first time
– take all accessories out of the oven
and wash them.
– then heat the oven up once with
nothing in it. New ovens have a
slight smell on first use and this will
dissipate the smells before you use it
to cook any food.
^ Before heating it up it is a good idea to
wipe the oven out with a damp cloth
first. This way any dust or bits of
packaging that may have accumulated
in the oven cavity during storage and
unpacking will be removed.
^ Turn the oven function selector to
"Fan Heat D" (bottom oven) or to
"Conventional (Top and bottom heat)
A" (top oven).
^ While the light between the "+" and
"–" buttons is still lit up, enter the time
of day in hours:minutes using the "+"
or "–" button.
When the indicator light for the "+/–"
button goes out. the time of day has
been set, and the display will change at
one minute intervals. The colon flashes.
Cleaning and heating up for
the first time
Before use, please remove
- any stickers from the floor of the
oven, baking trays, grill pan etc.
- the protective cork discs from
the sides of the oven.
- any protective foil from the oven
front.
See "Cleaning and care" for more
information.
^ Use the temperature selector to set
the highest temperature.
Heat the empty oven up for at least an
hour.
Please ensure that the kitchen is well
ventilated during this operation. Close
doors to other rooms to prevent the
smell spreading throughout the house.
On models with a clock/timer, you can
set this procedure to finish automatically,
see the appropriate section.
^ Wait until the oven has cooled down
to room temperature.
^ Then wipe out the oven cavity with a
solution of hot water and a mild
detergent and then dry it thoroughly
with a clean cloth.
Leave the oven door open until the
oven interior is completely dry.

Description of the systems
Fan Heat D
This system works by the circulation of
heated air.
A fan situated on the back wall of the
oven draws in the air, heats it over a
ring element and blows the heated air
through the carefully spaced openings
in the rear panel of the oven, enabling
approx. 20°C lower temperatures to be
used than with the Conventional
heating system.
The oven does not usually need to be
pre-heated as the heated air reaches
the food straight away.
Exception: Pre-heating may be
necessary for foods such as puff pastry
and yeast mixtures where instant heat
is required to make them rise quickly.
Using the fan heating system you can
bake and roast on different levels at the
same time.
Rapid heat-up Ä
With Rapid heat-up the grill element,
the fan heat element and the fan all
switch on at the same time so that the
oven reaches the required temperature
as quickly as possible. The indicator
light above the temperature selector
goes out when the required
temperature has been reached. The
oven function selector must then be
turned to the function you wish to use.
Auto Roast E
The oven heats initially to a high
temperature which seals the meat to
keep it succulent and tasty.
As soon as the high temperature has
been reached, the oven temperature is
14
automatically returned to the
pre-selected setting.
Conventional heating A
With the conventional method of
heating, radiant heat is directed on the
food from above and below. It is useful
where a fairly long cooking time is
required and a deep colour and good
rise are needed.
It is usually necessary to pre-heat the
oven when using this method.
Grill n
Pre-heat the grill for at least 5 minutes
with the oven door closed, before
placing food under the grill.
The inner part of the upper heating
element acts as the grill. This will glow
red a few minutes after switching it on
and is then ready for use.
The grill element is thermostatically
controlled and at times during grilling
will not glow red. This is quite normal.
Fan grill N
Pre-heat the grill for at least 5 minutes
with the oven door closed, before
placing food under the grill.
The hot air from the grill is distributed
over the food by the fan on the rear wall
of the oven. This enables a lower
temperature to be selected than for
conventional grilling.
More practical advice about these
cooking functions is given in the
"Baking", "Roasting" and "Grilling"
sections of this book and in the Miele
cookbook supplied with this oven.
Oven - use
This appliance has a choice of two
ovens with different heating systems.
The top oven - uses a top and bottom
heating system.
Function selector

Oven - use
Temperature selector -e
(depending on model)
The indicator light is always on when
the heating is on.
When the temperature is reached, the
heating element switches itself off.
When the temperature falls below that
selected, the heating element switches
on again automatically.
Using the oven
^ Place food in the oven.
^ Turn the oven selector to the required
function.
^ Use the temperature selector to set
the required temperature.
The oven starts to heat up.
Each oven has its own temperature
selector. Select the appropriate
temperature for the food to be cooked.
The temperature can be freely selected
within the given range.
Turn the temperature selector in a
clockwise direction to the
required setting. Then turn it back in
an anti-clockwise direction. Do not
force it right round in a clockwise
direction as this would damage the
selector.
With the bottom oven e heating is
automatically interrupted as soon as the
oven door is opened. This operates the
door contact switch which switches off
the heating systems, and the fan with
"Fan heat".
You can also delay the start of cooking
processes in the bottom oven e, (see
"Programming cooking time for the
bottom oven").
The cooling fan will continue for a while
after switching the oven off.
When the temperature selector is turned
to a temperature setting, the indicator
light above the selector comes on.
17
Oven - use
Cancelling a process /
switching off the oven
Turn the function selector and the
temperature selector to "0".
The oven is switched off;
all processes/ symbol displays are
cancelled.
Pre-heating the oven
Pre-heating is only necessary in a few
cases e.g:
With "Fan heat D"
– Pre-heat for foods which cook in less
than 20 minutes and for foods such
as puff pastry and yeast mixtures
where instant heat is required to
make them rise quickly.
With "Conventional A"
– Pre-heat the oven where a fairly long
cooking time is required and a deep
colour and good rise are needed.
With "Grill n"
– Pre-heat the grill for at least 5
minutes with the oven door closed,
before placing the food under the
grill.
18
With "Rapid heat-up Ä"
(Bottom oven only)
Do not switch on "Rapid heat-up Ä"
for pre-heating the oven when
baking pizza, biscuits and small
cakes, particularly when batch
baking because the top tray will
brown too quickly.
^ Turn the function selector to "Rapid
heat-up Ä".
^ Set the temperature you require.
The oven heating comes on.
^ When the indicator light above the
temperature selector goes out for the
first time, set the oven function you
require for continued cooking or
baking and place the food in the
oven.
You can use "Rapid heat-up Ä" to
cook ready made meals (see
relevant section).

24
Baking
Fan Heat D
When choosing which oven to use
take into account both the height of
the baking tin and the height that the
baking will reach once it has risen.
Several levels can be used at the same
time for baking. The recommended
positions are:
1 tray = 1st runner from the bottom
The following settings are
recommended for baking:
– Fan Heat D
– Conventional A
Bakeware
For the best baking results make sure
that you chose bakeware in a material
suitable for the particular heating
system.
Fan Heat D
Most types of heat-resistant tins or
dishes are suitable, including
thin-walled and bright, non-reflective
metal tins. Place the tin or dish on the
baking tray in the oven with the sloping
edge towards the door.
2 trays = 1st and 3rd runners
from the bottom
3 trays = 1st, 2nd and 4th runners
from the bottom
If baking on three levels place tins
on the grill pan on the 1st runner
position and on baking trays on the
other runner levels.
Remember to remove the roasting
filter from in front of the fan opening.
Otherwise the baking time will be
longer and results uneven.
With "Fan Heat D" approx. 20 °C lower
baking temperatures are needed than
with the "Conventional A" setting.
Conventional A
The following baking tins give an
evenly browned result:
Dark metal, aluminium or enamel tins
with a matt finish are preferable. Heat
resistant glass dishes can also be
used.
Avoid bright, shiny metal tins. These
reflect heat which means that the heat
does not penetrate to the food
effectively and will result in uneven or
poor browning. In some cases the
cakes might not cook properly. Place
the tin or dish directly on the non-tip
rack in the oven. Use one shelf position
only.
25
Baking
Conventional A
Only one shelf should be used for this
function. If more than one shelf position
is needed use Fan heat instead.
This function is particularly good for
rich fruit cakes, pastries and breads
where a fairly long cooking time is
required and a deep colour and good
rise are needed.
It is usually necessary to pre-heat the
oven when using this method.
– Top oven For tray baking, biscuits and "flat"
cakes. Place tins on the rack on
runner level 1.
– Bottom oven e
For large (deep) cakes. Place tins on
the rack on runner level 1 or 2.
Tips on baking
Refer to the baking chart and the
cookery book supplied with this
oven for suggestions of
temperatures, shelf levels and times.
With their anti-stick surface,
PerfectClean baking trays and grill
pans do not need to be greased or
lined with baking parchment for baking.
Baked goods are easily removed when
done.
Baking parchment is only necessary
when baking:
– Anything with a high salt content
(e.g. pretzels, bread sticks), as the
PerfectClean surface can be
damaged by the sodium used in the
dough;
– Meringues or biscuits with a high
egg-white content, which are more
likely to stick.
When baking cakes with fresh fruit
toppings and tall sponge cakes place
the tin in the grill pan to catch any
spillages and keep the oven cleaner.
Place cakes in rectangular tins with
the longer side across the width of the
oven as shown, for optimum heat
distribution and even results. Always
use shelf level 1 for cakes in tins.
26
Baking
Frozen food
When baking frozen products such as
cakes, pizza and baguettes, use the
lowest temperature quoted on the
manufacturer’s packaging. Place such
items on baking parchment directly on
the rack or in the pizza pan (extra
accessory). Placing them on the baking
tray or in the grill pan can cause the
metal to distort. This distortion would
increase with subsequent use.
Small items of frozen food such as oven
chips or potato croquettes can be
cooked on a baking tray or in the grill
pan. Place them on baking parchment
and select the lowest temperature
quoted on the manufacturer's
packaging. Turn several times during
cooking.
Handling and preparing food
correctly is essential for maintaining
good health.
Only bake cakes, pizza, chips etc
until they are golden brown. Do not
overcook them.
To achieve even results without
over-browning the food
– always select the lowest temperature given in the recipe/cooking
instructions on the packaging. Do
not set a temperature higher than
that recommended. Increasing the
temperature may reduce the cooking
time, but will lead to uneven
browning. In some cases food might
not cook properly.
– Check if the food is cooked at the
end of the shortest time quoted.
To check if a cake is ready, insert a
wooden skewer into the centre.
It is ready if the skewer comes out
clean, without dough or crumbs
sticking to it.
The cooling fan will continue for a while
after switching off the oven.
Always remove all accessories, trays
and racks which are not being used,
when using the oven, to keep the
cleaning of trays etc. to a minimum.

Roasting in the oven
The bottom oven is normally more
appropriate for roasting.
The top oven is not so suitable, except
for small roasts, preferably covered.
We recommend the following settings
for roasting in the oven:
– Auto roast E
– Conventional A
Roasting in a covered pot L:
Roasting pots with a lid made from
earthenware, cast iron, ovenproof china
or glass and roasting foil are all
suitable. Make sure any lids and
handles are heat-resistant.
Browning only occurs towards the end
of the roasting time. Remove the lid
about halfway through the roasting time
if a more intensive browning effect is
desired.
Open roasting
Auto roast E:
When roasting on the rack or in an
open tin make sure the roasting filter
is fitted in front of the fan in the back
of the oven before starting.
Use shelf position 1 for roasting.
Exception: With conventional A use
runner level 2 for poultry, meat or fish
weighing up to 1 kg.
The "Auto roast E" system uses an
approximately 20°C lower roasting
temperature than the "Conventional"
heating system.
When roasting on the rack place the
rack and anti-splash tray over the grill
pan and push them in together.
Season the meat and place in the pot.
Add some knobs of butter or margarine
or a little oil or cooking fat. Add about
1/8 litre of water when roasting a big
lean joint of meat (2-3 kg) or roasting
poultry with a high fat content.
Place the covered pot on the rack into a
cold oven.
Exception: Pre-heat the oven to the
temperature suggested when roasting
beef and beef fillet.
30
Season the meat and place in the grill
pan or on the rack. Add a little fat or oil
to very lean meat, or place a few strips
of bacon on top.
Roasting in the oven
Calculating the roasting time
The traditional British method is to allow
15 to 20 minutes to the lb, according to
type of meat, plus approx. 20 minutes,
adjusting length of time as roasting
proceeds, to obtain the required result.
Temperature
See the Roasting chart for suggested
temperatures.
Do not select a higher temperature than
that advised. The meat will become
brown, but will not be cooked properly
inside.
Do not roast deep frozen meat. Meat
should be thoroughly defrosted
before roasting.
After the roasting process is finished
– Take the roast out of the oven, wrap
in aluminium foil and leave to stand
for about 10 minutes. This helps
retain juices when the meat is
carved.
– The cooling fan will continue for a
while after switching off the oven.

The information given in this chart is intended only as a guide.
See the cookbook supplied with your oven for further details.
32
Grilling
When choosing which oven to use
take into account the height of the
food to be grilled.
Put the roasting filter in front of the
fan grille in the back of the oven.
Clean flat fish and slices of fish in the
normal way. To enhance the taste add a
little salt or squeeze a little lemon juice
over the fish.
Grilling on the rack
Pre-heat the grill for at least 5
minutes with the oven door shut.
Grilling with the oven door shut
saves energy and minimizes
cooking smells.
Because the grill is thermostatically
controlled it will not glow red all the
time. This is normal.
The oven has two grill settings:
Grill n
For grilling thin cuts and for browning.
Fan Grill N
For grilling larger items, for example,
poultry, rolled meat.
Preparing food for grilling
Clean, wipe and season with pepper
and herbs. Do not season meat with
salt before grilling as this draws the
juices out.
Add a little oil if necessary. Other fats
quickly become black or cause the
food to smoke.
^ Assemble the grill pan, anti-splash
tray and rack as shown.
^ Place the food on the rack.
^ Turn the oven function selector to the
required grill setting.
^ Pre-heat the grill for at least 5 mins
with the oven door closed.
^ Place the grill pan under the grill.
Make sure you insert the grill pan at the
appropriate level for the height of the
food to be grilled:
– Top oven thin cuts = level 2 or 3
– Bottom oven e
thin cuts = level 4 or 5
thicker cuts = level 3 or 4
33
Grilling
Grilling time
Useful grilling hints
Flat pieces of fish and meat usually
need about 5-6 minutes a side
depending on their texture.
Thicker pieces need longer.
One way of finding out how far through
a piece of meat has been cooked is to
press down on it with a spoon.
With rolled meat allow approx. 10
minutes per cm diameter.
It is best to grill food of a similar
thickness at the same time so that the
grilling time for each item does not
vary too greatly.
Most items should be turned half way
through cooking.
To grill thicker pieces of food more
gradually, select an initial high
temperature, continue grilling at a lower
temperature setting to allow the food to
cook through to the centre.
34
– If there is very little resistance to the
pressure of the spoon, it is still red on
the inside ("rare").
– If there is some resistance, the inside
will be pink ("medium").
– If there is great resistance, it is
thoroughly cooked through ("well
done").

Defrosting
To defrost select "Fan heat D" with a
temperature setting of up to a maximum
of 50 °C.
For defrosting meat and delicate foods
do not set a temperature. The fan on
the rear wall will then circulate cool air
(at room temperature) around the oven.
Please note:
– Where possible remove the
packaging and put the food to be
defrosted on a baking tray or into a
dish.
– All meat and poultry should be fully
defrosted before cooking. Do not use
the liquids from defrosting.
– When defrosting poultry put it on the
rack over the grill pan to catch the
defrosted liquid, so that the meat is
not lying in this liquid.
It is particularly important to observe
food hygiene rules when defrosting
poultry. Do not use the liquid from
the defrosted poultry. Pour it away,
and wash the tray, the sink and your
hands. Danger of salmonella.
– Fish does not need to be fully
defrosted before cooking. Defrost so
that the surface is sufficiently thawed
to take herbs and seasoning.
36
Do not refreeze food once it has
thawed.
The time needed for defrosting
depends on the type and weight of the
food, and at what temperature it was
deep frozen.
Cooking
Cooking ready made meals
The "Rapid heat-up Ä" function can
be used on its own for preparing ready
made meals such as pizza,
pre-prepared lasagne, filled baguettes,
etc. However, when used on its own it is
not suitable for baking and
conventional cooking.
When preparing ready made meals with
this function only use one level of the
oven. If you wish to cook on more than
one level at the same time select "Fan
heat D" instead.
Observe recommended
temperatures, cooking times and
position in the oven given on
manufacturer's packaging.
You can also programme the oven to
end or delay the start of a cooking
process automatically, see
"Programming cooking time
automatically".
Bake larger deep-frozen items
such as pizzas on baking paper on
the rack itself or in the pizza pan (see
"Extra accessories"). Placing them on
the baking tray or in the grill pan can
cause the metal to distort. This
distortion would increase with
subsequent use.
Deep frozen foods such as oven chips
or potato croquettes can be cooked on
the baking tray or grill pan.
^ Turn the function selector to "Rapid
heat-up Ä".
^ Set the temperature you require.
The oven heating comes on.
^ When the indicator light above the
temperature selector goes out for the
first time, do not select another oven
function.
^ Place the dish in the pre-heated
oven.
37
Cleaning and care
In the UK, Miele branded cleaning and
conditioning products as well as a
microfibre E-cloth, which is suitable for
cleaning surfaces such as stainless
steel, glass, plastic and chrome without
the use of chemicals, are available from
the Miele Spare Parts Dept. or via the
Internet on www.miele.co.uk.
Appliance front and control
panel
Do not use scouring agents, hard
sponges or brushes or sharp metal
tools to clean glass as these can
scratch the surface.
To prevent the risk of scratches and
damage to the surface structure of
glass, stainless steel and aluminium
fronted appliances, pay particular
attention to the following cleaning
instructions.
Clean the
– controls,
Glass fronted appliances
– door handle,
The appliance front and controls are
susceptible to scratches and abrasion.
– trim inside the door,
– seal between the appliance door and
the cooking compartment
regularly, preferably after each use.
This will help to prevent grease and
other deposits adhering to the surfaces
and becoming difficult to remove and
also in some cases, causing
discolouration.
Grease deposits can also cause the
seal to become brittle and crack.
^ All surfaces and controls should be
cleaned using a Miele E-Cloth or with
warm water and a little washing up
liquid applied with a soft sponge or
cloth.
^ Wipe the surfaces dry using a soft
cloth.
38
Avoid:
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream cleaners,
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents,
– sharp metal tools,
– oven sprays.
Cleaning and care
Stainless steel fronted
appliances
The appliance front and controls are
susceptible to scratches and abrasion.
Please observe the separate cleaning
instructions for
– stainless steel surfaces,
Stainless steel coloured controls
The controls may suffer
discolouration or damage if soiling is
left on them for too long. Remove
soiling straight away.
Avoid:
– stainless steel coloured controls.
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids or chlorides,
Stainless steel surfaces
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream cleaners,
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using a Miele E-Cloth or with a
proprietary non-abrasive cleaning
agent designed specifically for use on
stainless steel. N.B. Do not use
stainless steel cleaning agents on the
controls.
Avoid:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids or chlorides,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents.
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– oven sprays.
If you are unsure about a particular
product or need further advice,
please contact your nearest Miele
Sales office. See back page for
address.
To help prevent re-soiling, a conditioning
agent for stainless steel can also be
used. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions on the label.
39
Cleaning and care
Accessories
Always remove all accessories, trays
and racks which are not being used
when using the oven to get the best
results and to keep cleaning of the
trays to a minimum.
Baking tray, grill pan, rack and side
supports
The surfaces of these have been
treated with PerfectClean enamelling.
See "PerfectClean" for cleaning
instructions.
Roasting filter
Clean in a solution of hot water and a
little washing up liquid or in the
dishwasher.
If cleaned in a dishwasher, results are
better if the filter is placed horizontally
in the basket.
Some dishwasher detergents may
cause the surface of the metal filter to
discolour. This discolouration will not
affect the functioning of the filter in any
way.
Oven interior
Allow the oven to cool down before
cleaning.
Danger of burning!
The oven interior and the inside of
the door should be cleaned after
each use. If this is not done
subsequent soiling from baking and
roasting will become worse and
make cleaning harder. In extreme
cases soiling will be impossible to
remove or even cause damage to
the surface material.
The oven interior is PerfectClean
enamelled. Please refer to the section
"PerfectClean" for information on
cleaning and care.
The back panel, and depending on model the side panels and roof liner are
coated with a dark grey catalytic
enamel.
See the cleaning instructions for
"Catalytic enamelled surfaces".
To make cleaning easier you can
– remove the oven door,
– take out the side supports,
– remove the back panel and (if fitted)
the side panels and roof liner.
Instructions for doing so are given
further on in this chapter.
40
Cleaning and care
PerfectClean
Before using for the first time remove
any stickers from PerfectClean
surfaces.
The enamelled surfaces of the oven
interior, baking tray, grill pan, anti-splash
tray (if fitted), rack and side supports
have been treated with a special type of
enamelling called "PerfectClean".
This surface has very good anti-stick
properties which is much easier to keep
clean than conventional oven enamel, if
cleaned regularly.
Food can be taken off it more easily
and soiling from baking and roasting is
easier to remove.
The following notes on cleaning and
care should ensure that the anti-stick
and easy clean properties of
PerfectClean last for many years.
PerfectClean surfaces can be treated
as you would treat glass. If you are
unsure whether a particular cleaning
product is suitable for PerfectClean
consider whether you could clean a
window pane with the product without
damaging it.
Food can be sliced or cut up on the
PerfectClean surface in the same way
as on a baking tray with conventional
enamel.
Allow the oven and any accessories
to cool down before cleaning.
Danger of burning!
Normal soiling
Clean as soon as possible after each
use with a dishcloth, soft sponge or a
soft nylon brush, and a solution of hot
water and a little washing-up liquid. The
longer soiling is left the harder it may
become to remove.
Stubborn soiling
Stubborn soiling e.g. from roasting may
need to be soaked first with a damp
sponge to loosen it and if necessary a
non-abrasive stainless steel spiral pad
or a scraper suitable for glass surfaces
can be used to remove it.
After cleaning rinse thoroughly with
clean water. The water must run off the
surface easily. Any residual cleaning
agents will hinder this effect.
Using oven sprays on very stubborn
soiling
Some oven cleaners contain strong
alkalines and / or abrasive
materials. Because the enamel is
designed to be easily cleaned the use
of these cleaners is not recommended.
However if you still cannot get the
surface clean, an oven cleaner can be
used for a couple of minutes only.
Do not attempt to use on a hot oven or
accessories. Allow the PerfectClean
surfaces to cool down to room
temperature before applying oven
sprays!
41
Cleaning and care
Remove the catalytic back panel,
roof liner and side liners (if fitted)
before using oven sprays. The
chemicals used in oven sprays will
damage catalytic enamel rendering
it ineffective.
Apply a spray oven cleaner to the
soiled areas. Leave to take effect for a
couple of minutes only!
If necessary use a soft sponge, soft
nylon brush or a scraper suitable for
glass surfaces to loosen the soiling.
Repeat the process if necessary.
After cleaning rinse thoroughly with
clean water and then dry thoroughly.
The following cause lasting damage
to the surface structure and reduce
the anti-stick effect and must not be
used on PerfectClean surfaces:
–
–
–
–
–
abrasive cleaning agents
wire wool or metal scourers
pot scourers
oven cleaning pads
sponges and cloths which have
previously been used with
abrasive cleaning agents.
– oven spray must not be used in
a hot oven or left on for too long.
– items coated with PerfectClean
enamelling must not be cleaned
in a dishwasher.
Important
Note
For optimum performance of the
PerfectClean enamel it is important to
clean the oven and accessories after
each use.
Soiling such as spilt juices and cake
mixtures are best removed whilst the
oven or tray is still warm. Exercise
caution, make sure the oven is not hot danger of burning!
The surfaces will become harder to
clean and the anti-stick properties
will deteriorate if soiling is not
removed after each use and allowed
to build-up. In extreme cases
cleaning may even become
impossible.
Spilt fruit juices may cause lasting
discolouration of the surfaces and
roasting can cause matt areas to
appear. Clean these following the
instructions given above and do not try
and use force to remove them! This
discolouration is permanent but will not
affect the efficiency of the enamel.
When baking items with a high salt
content (e.g. continental pretzels) place
them on baking parchment in the
baking tray or grill pan. Sodium
deposits can cause lasting
discolouration to PerfectClean
surfaces.
42
Cleaning and care
Catalytic enamel surfaces
The back panel and the roof liner and
side liners (if fitted) are coated with
dark grey catalytic enamel. Soiling
from oil and fat is burnt off these
surfaces when very high temperatures
are used in the oven. The higher the
temperature, the more effective the
process.
The catalytic coating becomes
ineffective through using
– abrasive cleaning agents,
– hard brushes or abrasive
sponges,
– oven sprays.
Remove the catalytic back panel
and any side and roof panels from
the oven before cleaning the
PerfectClean oven surfaces with
oven spray.
Note that deposits of spices, syrups
and similar substances are not
removed from the catalytic coating by
this process. These should be removed
by hand whilst still fresh, using a mild
solution of hot water and washing up
liquid applied with a soft sponge or
brush. Remove the panels from the
oven to do this.
Soiling caused by oil and grease
splashes are removed from catalytic
coated surfaces when the oven is
heated to a high temperature. To do
this:
PerfectClean surfaces and becoming
impossible to remove.
^ Turn the oven function selector to
"Fan heat D" or "Conventional heat
A".
^ Set the highest temperature setting.
Run the oven for approx. 1 hour. The
length of time will depend on the level
of soiling.
On models with a clock/timer, you can
set this procedure to finish
automatically; see the appropriate
section.
Any remaining soiling will gradually
disappear with each subsequent use of
the oven at high temperatures.
If the catalytic coated panels are
very heavily soiled with oil and
grease, a film will develop on the
oven surface during the cleaning
process which can be wiped off with
warm water and a little washing up
liquid once cool.
^ Finally, clean the PerfectClean
surfaces and the inside of the door.
Should the catalytic coating on the
back panel or the roof liner become
ineffective through improper use or
heavy soiling, a replacement can be
obtained from your Miele dealer or
the Miele Spare Parts dept.
^ Take all accessories out of the oven.
^ Wipe large deposits of soiling from
the oven interior and the inside of the
door before starting the cleaning
process to avoid them baking onto
43
Cleaning and care
The bottom oven is illustrated however
the procedure is generally the same for
the top oven. Any steps which differ are
described in detail.
To remove the oven door
Please note : the oven door is heavy.
It should be gripped firmly at the
sides when being removed or
re-fitted.
^ Open the door fully.
Before the door can be removed, the
door hinges need to be locked so
that they do not damage the door
when it is taken out.
^ Lift the door up until it is nearly in the
closed position. The hinges will
automatically swing out in this
position, then remove the door.
To re-fit the oven door
^ Hold the door as shown above and
carefully put the locked hinges into
the guide holes until they engage.
Open the door fully.
^ Still supporting the door flip the
locking clamps up.
^ Flip down the locking clamps on
each door hinge. This locks the
hinges.
44
It is essential that the locking clamps
are flipped up when the door is
re-fitted after cleaning. Otherwise on
closing the door, the hinges could
work loose from the guide holes and
this could result in damage to the
door.
Cleaning and care
To remove the runners
Make sure the oven heating
elements are switched off and cool
to avoid the danger of being burnt.
^ Gently lift and pull out the catalytic
side liners.
Reassemble in the reverse order,
carefully ensuring all parts are correctly
in place.
^ Pull on the fixing knob to release it.
When reassembling the catalytic side
liners, ensure they sit correctly.
^ Take the runners out of the oven.

^ Take out the runners.
^ Ease the back lug into the opening in
the rear wall panel.
45
Cleaning and care
To remove the back panel
– Bottom oven e
^ Loosen the screws in the back panel
and take it out.
The oven must not be used without
the back panel fitted. This could
lead to injuries.
Reassemble in the reverse order,

Problem solving guide
Installation, maintenance and repairs
to the electrical components of this
appliance should only be carried out
by a suitably qualified and competent
competent person in accordance
with national and local safety
regulations. Repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot
be held liable for unauthorised work.
. . . the heating works, but not the
oven lighting.
Make sure the halogen lamp is
connected properly in its socket.
If after checking it, it still does not work
you will need to change it:
^ Disconnect the appliance from the
electricity supply: Switch off at the
isolator or the mains fuse box.
^ Remove the runners.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
appliance until after maintenance or
repair work has been carried out.
Some minor problems can be corrected
without contacting the Miele Service Dept.
What to do if . . .
. . . the oven does not heat up.
Check whether,
^ Lift the lamp cover from its retainers.
^ the selector switch is set to the function
required, and the temperature control
is set at the correct temperature.
^ Replace the halogen lamp:
12 V, 20 W, heat resistant up to 300°C,
G4 socket, Osram, Type 64428.
^ the operating lock is activated
(bottom oven).
Exercise caution when changing a
lamp. Halogen lamps get very hot
during use and will remain hot for some
time after being switched off.
^ the mains fuse has tripped. Contact a
qualified electrician or the Miele Service Department.
. . . "12:00" flashes in the timer display.
This is not a fault.
There has been an interruption to the
power supply. After a power cut
– the time of day has to be entered again,
– the operating lock has to be
reactivated.
48
Do not touch the surface directly when
changing the lamp as grease particles
from your fingers will adhere to the
surface and damage it. Please follow
the manufacturer's instructions.
Reassemble in the reverse order, carefully
ensuring all parts are correctly in place.
^ Press the lamp cover back in its
retainers and put the runners back.
Problem solving guide
. . . no noise is heard when the oven
door is opened during operation.
This is not a fault.
If the door is opened during operation,
the door contact switch causes the
oven heating, and the fan if on "Fan"
setting, to be switched off.
. . . a noise can be heard after baking,
roasting or grilling.
This is not a fault.
The cooling fan continues to run for a
while after the oven has switched off to
prevent any humidity building up in the
oven, on the control panel or in the
oven housing unit. When the
temperature has fallen sufficiently the
fan switches off automatically.
The temperature will fall faster when the
oven door is opened partially or fully.
. . . cakes and biscuits are not cooked
after following the times given in the
chart.
Check whether,
^ the correct temperature was set.
^ there has been a change to the
recipe. The addition of more liquid or
more eggs makes a moister mix
which would need longer to cook.
^ the roasting filter had been left in
place in front of the fan when cooking
with "Fan D" heat, or was in place for
"Auto roast E". In this case baking
times might be lengthened by 10 to
15 minutes.
. . . cakes or biscuits are unevenly
browned.
There will always be a slight
unevenness.
If the item being baked is browning
very unevenly, check when baking with:
Fan Heat D:
– whether the temperature was set too
high,
– whether the roasting filter was in place,
– whether the correct runner height
was used.
Conventional A:
– the colour and composition of the
baking tins being used. Light
coloured, shiny, or thin walled tins
are less suitable,
– whether the correct runner height
was used.
. . . spots like rust appear on catalytic
surfaces.
When roasting on the rack, the
circulating air sometimes picks up
spices, which are then deposited on
the oven interior walls. Such residues
are not removed by catalytic cleaning,
they are best removed while fresh with
a mild washing up liquid solution and a
soft brush.
. . . the timer display does not light up
when the oven is operating.
This is not a fault. The display does not
light up if the time of day display has
been switched off.
Press buttons "f" and ")" at the
same time. "12:00" will appear in the
display.
. . . the time cannot be re-set after a
power failure.
This is not a fault. Check whether the
function selector is still set to one of the
functions. If it is then turn it to the "0"
position. The time of day can now be
set.
