PerfectFresh zone just above 0 °C

Freezer section -18 °C

Wine storage section 10 to 12 °C

Use

Not near to a heat source (radiator, oven).

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

Do not cover the ventilation gaps and dust them regularly.

Defrosting

Near to a heat source (radiator, oven).

Where there is a high ambient room temperature.

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

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

16 °C .

Drawers, shelves and racks arranged as they were when the appliance was delivered.

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

Store food in an organised way.

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

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.

Store food covered or packaged.

Hot food will cause the compressor to run for a long time, as the appliance will have to work harder to reduce the temperature.

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 section 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 increases energy consumption.

15

The ideal temperature and humidity level

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.

The wine conditioning unit, with its constant ideal temperature, increased air humidity and odour-free atmosphere, offers the perfect conditions for storing your wine.

Setting the temperature

The zones are set ex-works for the following types of storage:

– Upper zone: for storing red wine (16 °C)

– Middle zone: for storing white wine (10 °C)

– Lower zone: for storing wine for a longer period of time (11 °C)

You can adjust the zones to your requirements, for example if you wish to store white wine in the upper zone.

Simply set the relevant temperature specification as follows:

Temperature

Wine can be stored at a temperature between 5°C and 18°C. If you wish to store red and white wines together, select a temperature between 10 and

12°C. Most white wines are palatable at this temperature. It is best to take red wine out of the appliance 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.

A storage temperature of over 22°C causes wine to 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.

^ Touch the sensor for the zone you wish to change so that it is highlighted in yellow.

^ Then touch the sensor for the type of storage you wish to select (long-term, white wine or red wine storage).

Although you can use the lower zone for white wine if you wish, it is not possible to select the white wine symbol for the lower zone.

16

The ideal temperature and humidity level

It is possible to set the exact temperature individually in each zone.

The zones are set up ex works to store red wine, white wine and for long-term storage.

The settings can be altered to your requirements.

^ Touch the sensor for the zone you wish to change so that it is highlighted in yellow.

If the highest or lowest temperature that it is possible to set is reached, the

The ideal temperature and humidity level

Humidity level

A conventional refrigerator with its low humidity level is not the best place to store wine. 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. Low humidity causes corks to dry out from the outside, and so 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.

Note: 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.

To set the humidity level

The appliance is set ex works with a high humidity level.

If you are going to use the appliance for long-term wine storage, you should select the highest possible humidity level. This will reproduce the conditions similar to those found in a wine cellar.

The humidity level set will be the same for all three zones.

^ Touch the access sensor so that it is highlighted in yellow.

^ Touch the sensor for one of the zones

(it does not matter which) so that it is highlighted in yellow.

^ Take note of the position of the X sensor (but do not touch it!).

^ After selecting a new setting, touch the access sensor to confirm your choice.

^ Now touch the X sensor repeatedly until c appears in the display.

^ Touch the access sensor again.

You have now left settings mode.

If you have selected a high humidity level, the fan will switch on automatically. This allows the humidity and temperature to be spread evenly through the whole appliance so that all of your wines are stored under the same ideal conditions.

The fan switches off automatically when the door is opened, and remains switched off until the door is closed again.

Air filtering with active charcoal filters

Fresh air from the room enters the appliance through the active charcoal filters, ensuring a fresh, dust-free, odourless air supply.

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

Replace the active charcoal filters at regular intervals, or if you notice unpleasant odours in the appliance

(see "Cleaning and care - Active charcoal filters").

21

Temperature and door alarm

Your appliance is fitted with a warning system which ensures that the temperature in the three zones cannot rise or fall unnoticed and impair the wine.

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

If the temperature in one of the zones gets too warm, the sensor for the zone concerned will flash in the control panel.

The sensor for switching the temperature or door alarm off will flash at the same time.

An audible alarm will also sound.

The alarm will sound and the relevant symbols will flash, for example,

– if the door has been left open for a while in order to re-arrange or take wine bottles out and warm air has entered the appliance.

– if a large number of wine bottles are put into the storage unit at once.

– in the event of a power cut.

The alarm will stop and the sensor for switching the temperature or door alarm off will go out as soon as the temperature is at the correct level. The sensor for the zone concerned will light up again constantly.

^ Touch the sensor for switching off the temperature or door alarm.

The alarm will stop.

The sensor for switching off the temperature or door alarm will continue to be lit up until the temperature is at the correct level.

The sensor for the zone concerned will continue to flash until the temperature is at the correct level.

Door alarm

23

Storing wine bottles

Storage tips

– Always remove wine bottles from their box or packaging before you lay them down.

– Always place the bottles in a horizontal position so that the corks can be kept moist on the inside and air is prevented from getting into the bottles.

– 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.

– Red wines and rosés should be opened and stood upright for at least two hours before serving in order to reach their ideal drinking temperature.

Champagne and sparkling wines should be cooled in the refrigerator for a while before serving.

– Just before serving, the wine should be slightly cooler than its ideal drinking temperature as it becomes 1 to 2° warmer as soon as it is poured into a glass.

Wooden shelves

The wooden shelves 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 empty shelf on its runners until it stops, then lift it up and out.

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

Make sure the the vents at the back of the appliance are not covered, as this is essential for keeping the appliance cool.

24

Bottle presenter

The bottle presenter can be used to raise particular bottles of wine so that they can be viewed when the door is shut.

Storing wine bottles

The bottle presenter can only be used on the wide-slatted shelves. In the upper zone, the wide-slatted shelves are at the bottom. In the other two zones, the wide-slatted shelves are at the top and the bottom.

In order to optimse the space in the appliance, we do not recommend swapping the wooden shelves around.

Never stack bottles on the wooden shelves. If you remove the lowest wooden shelf in any of the three zones, bottles may then be stacked on the floor of each of the zones.

^ Place the wine bottles on the bottle presenter so that the necks are resting in the hollows of the presenter a.

^ When you no longer wish to elevate the bottles, carefully remove the bottle presenter and place it at the back of the wooden shelf b.

The wine bottles can now be stored horizontally on the shelf again.

Maximum capacity

Up to 102 Bordeaux bottles (0.75 l) can be stored in the appliance.

Additional bottle presenters can be purchased from your Miele Dealer or the Miele Spare Parts Department.

Installation

Anti-tipping mechanism

The anti-tipping mechanism ensures that the appliance is fixed securely into the building-in niche, preventing the appliance from tipping forwards.

Use two anti-tipping mechanisms for each appliance or side-by-side pair of appliances.

^ Mark the drilling position onto the niche floor through the holes in anti-tipping mechanisms b.

^ Put the anti-tipping mechanisms in a safe place - they will be required later.

Fixing screws for different uses and types of material are supplied in the accompanying pack.

If these are not suitable for the anti-tipping mechanism in your installation, you will need to secure it by alternative means.

If the building-in niche is deeper than the appliance, screw a solid wooden beam a to the floor and wall behind the anti-tipping mechanism b.

The length of the wooden beam a must be the same as the width of the building-in niche.

^ Drill the following holes:

– 3 mm diameter for the 5 x 60 mm screws

– 2 mm diameter for the 4 x 15 mm screws

Gap "D" between anti-tipping mechanisms b is exactly equal to the width of the appliance(s).

^ Place anti-tipping mechanisms b flush against the left- and right-hand sides of the niche.

^ The anti-tipping mechanisms can now be secured in the niche.

Make sure that the screws are at a depth of at least 19 mm in the floor and side walls of the niche.

48

Installation

If the anti-tipping mechanism

supplied cannot be fixed in the niche, the furniture unit must be firmly screwed to the wall behind to prevent the built-in appliance from tipping.

For a unit with a back panel

For a unit without a back panel

^ screw the back panel directly onto the wall behind in a number of places. Use suitable wall plugs/fixing screws for the type and material of the wall.

^ screw the unit to the wall behind using a number of suitable angled fixing brackets. Use suitable wall plugs/fixing screws for the type and material of the wall.

49

Installation

An alternative anti-tipping mechanism

The appliance can alternatively be secured with a wooden beam across the top of the appliance. If this method is used, then there must not be any gap between the appliance and the wooden beam.

^ Mark the position of the lower edge of the wooden beam on the rear wall of the building-in niche.

^ Select screws of a length depending on the thickness of the wood.

Use the number of screws appropriate to the niche width to ensure that the wooden beam is securely fixed.

^ Check where the upright wall supports are in the back of the niche, and mark the drill holes in the wooden beam accordingly.

^ First, drill the holes in the wooden beam.

^ Secure the wooden beam to the back wall of the niche.

– The wooden beam must be at least

75 mm x 100 mm thick.

– The length must be the same as the width of the building-in niche.

– If the building-in niche is deeper than the appliance, a thicker wooden beam should be used.

– The wood must cover the appliance to a depth of at least 50.8 mm (see diagram).

Placing the appliance in the niche

If you are installing two appliances side by side, now secure the appliances to one another (see the instructions for the side-by-side installation kit).

Installation

^ Plug in the appliance b.

Connection should be made via a suitable switched socket. The socket should be close to the appliance and easily accessible. Otherwise the appliance should be connected via an external all-pole switch with a sufficient contact gap in the open position.

^ Unscrew the plinth facing.

^ Secure the edge protector supplied a to protect the adjacent furniture fronts.

When installing two appliances side by side, each appliance must have its own separate socket.

^ Secure the cable to prevent it becoming caught:

Tie a piece of string to the middle of the cable, and as the appliance is being pushed into the niche, pull the cable forward underneath the appliance c.

^ Carefully push the appliance back into the niche, clipping the feet into the anti-tipping mechanisms d.

If the appliance does not slide easily into the niche (e.g. if the floor is uneven),

^ adjust the rear feet slightly (see

"Aligning the appliance").

Then push the appliance into the niche, taking care not to damage the electrical cable.

^ Remove the edge protector a from the adjacent furniture fronts.

51

Installation

Aligning the appliance

^ Align the appliance with neighbouring furniture fronts.

The installation aids e on the appliance door are suitable for 19 mm or 38 mm furniture door fronts.

The adjustable feet at the front and back of the appliance can be adjusted from the front.

– Front feet:

Adjust from the top with a

8 mm socket wrench f.

– Rear feet:

Adjust with a (cordless) screwdriver or 8 mm socket wrench g.

^ Place a spirit level on the installation aids e on the appliance door to check the appliance's alignment.

Important: work methodically when adjusting the feet: always alternately left, right, etc.

^ A mark is located on the appliance base. When adjusting the height, this mark needs to be aligned at 32 mm from the floor. Unscrew the feet until the mark on the base has reached 32 mm. The 32 mm mark is for aligning the appliance in a niche height of

2134 mm.

Important:

Adjust the feet only until the marking on the base has reached the 62 mm point (max. niche height

2164 mm).

Otherwise the rear foot adjustment mechanism will get damaged.

^ Check the alignment of the appliance again using the spirit level.

52

Installation

^ If a wooden beam has been fitted above the appliance to prevent tipping, the appliance height needs to be adjusted to fit snuggly under the wooden beam.

Securing the appliance in the niche

^ Pull out the lugs for the side fixing plates i.

^ Screw on the lugs for the side plates.

^ Screw the lugs for the fixing plates h into the furniture/units above the appliance.

If it is not possible to secure the appliance above, it can be attached to the niche at the sides only:

^ If necessary, cut trim j to the necessary depth.

^ Join the two pieces of trim together k.

^ Click them into position l.

53

Installation

When installing two appliances side by

side, the filler strips for the two appliances need to be joined together to form one long strip.

^ Open the appliance door.

^ Insert the joining peg from the side-by-side kit halfway into the channel in the filler strip for the left-hand appliance.

^ Then insert the free half of the joining peg into the channel on the other strip, and press the two strips together.

^ Click the two filler strips into place above the appliances.

^ Screw the lugs for the fixing plates m into the furniture/units adjacent to the appliance.

In a side-by-side combination, only the external panels of the two appliances can be secured to the furniture wall.

54

Installation

Preparing the furniture front

^ Open the appliance door as far as it will go.

^ Unscrew the installation aids n and angle trim o from the door.

^ Take the cover off the light contact switch.

^ Close the appliance door.

^ Measure gap X between the adjusting bar and the upper edge of the adjacent furniture front.

^ Remove the two nuts from the appliance door, and place them in a safe place - they will be required later.

^ Place the furniture front on a firm surface, with the external side facing downwards (place on a blanket or similar to avoid it becoming scratched).

55

Installation

^ Mark gap X on the inside of the furniture front.

^ Similarly, locate and mark the midpoint Y on the furniture front.

^ Remove the fixing frame from the appliance door and position it corresponding to the markings on the furniture front.

^ Pre-drill the holes.

^ Screw the fixing frame to the furniture front, using at least one screw for each fixing point.

^ Secure the fixing frame to the top of the furniture front, using at least 6 screws:

– The fixing frame has several different types of holes to take account of a variety of furniture fronts.

– When securing the frame, always screw into the strongest part of the furniture door.

– To do this, select screws which are slightly shorter than the thickness of the furniture door.

^ Screw the appliance handle to the furniture door from the inside.

56

Installation

Securing and aligning the furniture door

^ Press the angle trim o on both sides into the white plastic frame, and screw them down securely.

^ Screw the nuts q loosely onto the threaded bolts - but do not tighten yet.

^ Close the appliance door and check the distance between the door and neighbouring furniture doors.

^ Insert the angle trim o as far as it will go into the spaces in the frame, as shown.

^ Align the door to the side by sliding it over the threaded bolts p.

^ Align the depth of the door via the gaps in the angle trim o. Then screw the angle trim into position.

^ Now screw on the top nuts q. The door is now fixed.

^ Open the appliance door and hang the furniture front on its frame onto the threaded bolts, as shown p.

57

Installation

Securing the covers

^ Fit the two cover strips to the sides of the appliance door, clicking them into the space between the appliance door and the furniture front, starting at the bottom and working up to the top.

^ Now attach the covers onto the retaining clips on both sides.

In the case of side-by-side installation, the cover strips are only required on the outer side.

^ Secure the retaining clips for the space covers on both sides.

58

^ Fit the cover to the light contact switch so that it clicks into place as shown.

Fitting the plinth facing

Do not cover the vents in the plinth.

This could result in damage to the appliance.

^ Trim the plinth facing to the required length and height (cut along the lower edge of the plinth facing where it touches the floor).

Installation

^ Secure the plinth to the appliance, and attach the cover caps supplied.

^ Now fit the plinth facing.

59

Installation

An extra length of trim is supplied to help calculate the length required.

^ Cut the short pieces of door trim for the top and bottom of the door to the length required Y.

^ Fix the door trim into the gap between the furniture front and the plate glass.

^ Trim the long pieces of door trim for the right and left sides to the length required X.

60

Installation

Fitting the air separator

The air separator in the bottom of the ventilation grille separates air entering the appliance from that leaving it.

It also stops warm air flowing into the appliance, which would cause a short circuit.

^ If necessary the three parts of the air separator can be shortened to the correct height.

^ Replace the foam parts in the sides.

^ Screw the air separator to the middle of the appliance door using two screws.
