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 should 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.
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.

Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before setting up the appliance,
check it for any externally visible
damage.
Do not install and use a damaged
appliance.
~ This appliance contains the coolant
Isobutane (R600a), a natural gas which
is environmentally friendly. Although it
is flammable, it does not damage the
ozone layer and does not increase the
greenhouse effect. The use of this
coolant has, however, led to a slight
increase in the noise level of the
appliance. In addition to the noise of
the compressor, you might be able to
hear the coolant flowing around the
system. This is unavoidable, but does
not have any adverse effect on the
performance of the appliance.
Care must be taken during the
transportation and setting up of the
appliance that no parts of the cooling
system are damaged. Leaking coolant
can be harmful to the eyes.
In the event of any damage:
- avoid open fires and anything which
creates a spark,
- disconnect from the mains,
- air the room in which the appliance is
located for several minutes and
- contact the Service Department for
advice.
~ The more coolant there is in an
appliance, the larger the room it should
be installed in. In the event of a
leakage, if the appliance is in a small
room, there is the danger of
combustible gases building up.
For every 8 g of coolant at least 1 m3 of
room space is required. The amount of
coolant in the appliance is stated on the
data plate inside the appliance.
~ Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply, make sure that the
rating on the data plate corresponds to
the voltage and frequency of the
household supply.
This data must correspond in order to
avoid the risk of damage to the
appliance. Consult a qualified
electrician if in any 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 current local and national
safety regulations. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
present and tested regularly, and
where there is any doubt, the
household wiring system should be
inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for damage or injury caused by the lack
of or inadequacy of an effective
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
~ If the connection cable is faulty it
must only be replaced by a Miele
approved service technician to protect
the user from danger.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Safe operation of the appliance is
only assured if it has been installed and
connected in accordance with these

temperatures), and should not be used
outside this range. The climate range
for your appliance is stated on the data
plate inside the appliance.
Installing it in a room with too low an
ambient temperature, e.g. a garage,
can lead to the appliance switching off
for longer periods so that it cannot
maintain the required temperature.
10
~ Never use a steam-cleaning
appliance to clean this appliance.
Pressurised steam could reach the
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
Disposal of your old appliance
~ Before disposing of an old
appliance first make the door latch or
lock unusable.
This way you will prevent children from
accidentally locking themselves in and
endangering their lives.
~ Be careful not to damage any part of
the pipework whilst awaiting disposal,
e.g. by
– puncturing the refrigerant channels
in the evaporator.
– bending any pipework.

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.
Dynamic cooling
The temperature in the appliance will
rise:
Setting the temperature in the
refrigerator
– the more often the door is opened
and the longer it is kept open,
Use the two buttons underneath the
temperature display to set the
temperature for the refrigerator.
– if too much food is stored in it at
once,
The dynamic cooling fan automatically
switches on when the cooling system
for the refrigerator switches on. It
distributes the temperature in the
appliance to all areas more evenly so
that all the food will be chilled to about
the same degree.

automatically shown.
If you have adjusted the temperature,
wait for approx. 6 hours if the
appliance is not very full and for
approx. 24 hours if the appliance is
full, before checking the temperature
display, as it will take this long for the
display to give an accurate reading. If,
after this time, the temperature is still
too high or too low, you will need to
adjust it again.
Temperature range
The temperature can be adjusted from:
4 °C to 9 °C
The ambient temperature in the room
and the installation location can affect
the time it takes for the appliance to
reach the lowest temperature. If the
ambient temperature is too high, the
appliance may not reach the lowest
temperature.
Setting the temperature in the
PerfectFresh zone
The temperature in the PerfectFresh
zone is automatically held at 0 to 3 °C.

Storing food in the refrigerator
Different storage zones
Due to the natural circulation of 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.
This appliance has automatic
dynamic cooling, which helps to
keep an even temperature when the
fan is running, making the difference
between the various zones less
pronounced.
Warmest area
The warmest area is in the top section
of the door. Use this for storing butter
and cheese.
Coldest areas
The coldest areas in this appliance are
directly above the PerfectFresh zone
and in the PerfectFresh zone itself
which is slightly colder still.
Use these areas for all delicate and
highly perishable food, e.g.
– fish, meat, poultry,
– 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, make sure that it does not
come into contact with plastic
components as this could cause
stress cracks.
Food must not touch the back wall of
the refrigerator, 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.
– 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,
19
Storing food in the refrigerator
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.
Cucumbers, for example, become
glassy, aubergines bitter and potatoes
sweet. Tomatoes and oranges lose their
aroma, and the peel on citrus fruits
hardens.
Food which is sensitive to cold 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, cucumbers,
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. 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. Once food has started to
deteriorate, this process cannot be
reversed. As little as two hours outside
the refrigerator can cause food to start
deteriorating.
20
Storing food correctly
Food should generally be stored
covered or packaged in the refrigerator
(there are some exceptions to this rule
in the PerfectFresh zone - see below).
This will prevent food smells from
affecting other food, food from drying
out, and also any cross-contamination
of bacteria. The growth of bacteria,
such as salmonella, can be avoided by
setting the correct temperature and
maintaining good standards of hygiene.
Unpacked meat and vegetables
Unpackaged meat and vegetables
should be stored separately. To avoid
any microbiological
cross-contamination, these foods may
only be stored together if they are
wrapped.
Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone
Food is stored at a lower temperature in
the PerfectFresh zone than in the
refrigerator section. The humidity in the
PerfectFresh zone compartment can
also be regulated to suit the food being
stored, providing ideal storage
conditions and ensuring that food stays
fresh considerably longer while
retaining both flavour and vitamins.
Storage temperature
The optimum storage temperature for
fresh food which can tolerate cold
temperatures is 0 - 3 °C. This is the
temperature range which is
automatically maintained in the
PerfectFresh zone. Food can be stored
there at this temperature without loss of
freshness for considerably longer than
in a standard refrigerator, as the
deterioration process is decelerated at
this temperature.
Remember that the fresher the food
when placed in the appliance, the
longer it will stay fresh.
Humidity level
The humidity level in the PerfectFresh
compartment will depend on
longer period, as the water content of
the food is largely retained.
Storing food in the
PerfectFresh zone
compartments
The PerfectFresh zone is divided into
two areas, the dry compartment and
the humidity-controlled compartment
(the number of compartments will vary
depending on model).
Dry compartment
The dry compartment has a relatively
low humidity level that is approx. the
same as that in the refrigerator. So the
main advantage of the dry
compartment is the low temperature
(rather than the humidity).
– The dry compartment is ideal for
storing particularly sensitive foods,
such as fresh fish, shellfish, meat,
poultry, sausages, dairy products
and salad.
Please note that foods rich in protein
deteriorate faster than others.
Shellfish, for example, deteriorates
faster than fish, and fish deteriorates
faster than meat.
– the moisture content of the food
being stored and
– the quantity of food being stored.
Use the regulator to adjust the humidity
level in the PerfectFresh compartment.
The closer the storage humidity is to the
humidity content of the food, the crisper
and fresher the food remains over a
21
Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone
Always keep these foods covered or
wrapped.
Exception: Meat. The surface of the
meat dries out slightly, helping to
prevent the growth of bacteria, which
results in the meat lasting longer. To
prevent the risk of bacterial
cross-contamination and meat
deteriorating, do not let one type of
meat come into direct contact with
another type.
Humidity-controlled compartment
The humidity-controlled compartment
has a regulator which is used to adjust
the relative humidity.
Slide the regulator to the relative
humidity level required.
. = high humidity. The regulator
closes the vents to the compartment
and retains the humidity already
present. The humidity level greatly
depends on the type and quantity of
food being stored.
Please take into account that high
humidity is only achieved and effective
if the food is stored unwrapped or
loosely wrapped.
– The high humidity setting . is ideal
for storing freshly harvested produce
such as vegetables, salad, herbs,
cabbage and home-grown seasonal
fruit.
22
, = low humidity.
The regulator opens the vents to the
compartment and the humidity can
escape.
If the regulator is set at low humidity ,
the humidity will be approx. the same
as the humidity in the refrigerator
section. At this setting, the low
temperature is the main advantage of
the compartment rather than the
humidity.
– At the low humidity setting ,, the
atmosphere inside the
humidity-controlled compartment is
the same as in the dry compartment.
Take food out of the PerfectFresh
zone approx. 30 - 60 minutes before
using it. The aroma and taste do not
fully develop until the food has
reached room temperature.
Can all types of food be stored
together?
Do not place all types of food together
in one compartment. Some types of
food do not store well together. Aromas
and flavours can transfer from one type
of food to another (e.g. carrots absorb
the smell and flavour of onions very
easily). Some food also gives off a
natural gas (ethylene) which speeds up
the rate at which other food perishes.
Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone
Examples of fruit and vegetables
which produce a large amount of this
natural gas are:
Apples, apricots, pears, nectarines,
peaches, plums, avocados, figs,
blueberries, melons and beans.
Examples of fruit and vegetables
which react strongly to the natural
gases given off by other types of fruit
and vegetables are:
Kiwis, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels
sprouts, mangos, honeydew melons,
apples, apricots, cucumbers, tomatoes,
pears, nectarines and peaches.
Example: Broccoli should not be stored
with apples, as apples produce a large
amount of natural gas to which broccoli
is very sensitive. The result is a shorter
than expected storage time for the
broccoli.
23
Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone
The following tips may help if you find that food you have stored does not
keep well (e.g. food becomes limp or wilts after only being stored for a short
time):
^ Only use the appliance for storing fresh food. The condition of the food when it
is first placed in the appliance is an important factor in determining how long it
stays fresh.
^ Clean food before placing it in the PerfectFresh zone.
^ Allow very moist food to drain before placing it in the appliance.
^ Do not store food which is sensitive to cold in the PerfectFresh zone
(see "Food which is not suitable for storing in the refrigerator")
^ Bear in mind that not all types of food can be stored together (see "Can all types
of food be stored together?").
^ Select the correct PerfectFresh compartment (high or low humidity).
^ Store food unwrapped in the high humidity PerfectFresh compartment.
High humidity in the PerfectFresh compartment can only be achieved by storing
food which contains moisture in it.
If the humidity is not high enough, because, for example, too little food has been
stored in the compartment, you can use a wet sponge to increase the humidity.
^ If you think that the temperature in the PerfectFresh zone is too high or too low,
try regulating it via the refrigerator section by altering the temperature of the
refrigerator section slightly by 1 to 2 °C.
The temperature must be increased if ice crystals start to form on the floor of the
PerfectFresh zone as otherwise the cold temperature will damage the food.
^ If a lot of water has gathered on the base of the PerfectFresh zone, dry the base
with a towel. Drain food before storage or place a rack on the floor of the
PerfectFresh zone and place the food on the rack so that the moisture can drip
down.
24
Adjusting the interior fittings
Moving the shelves
To move the split shelf:
The shelves can be adjusted according
to the height of the food.
^ Take both halves of the split glass
shelf out,
^ Raise the shelf, and pull it forwards
slightly 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 at the back 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.
Split shelf
In order to accommodate tall items in
the appliance, one of the shelves is
divided. The front section can be
pushed under the rear section.
^ fit the two brackets onto the supports
on either side at the required height,
^ and push the glass shelves in one
after the other.
The shelf with the raised edge must
be at the back.
^ Push the rear half of the glass shelf
up slightly from below.
^ At the same time, pull the front half of
the glass shelf forwards slightly and
then push it carefully under the rear
half.
25
Adjusting the interior fittings
PerfectFresh zone
compartments
The compartments in the PerfectFresh
zone are on telescopic runners, and
can be removed for filling, emptying or
cleaning purposes.
Remove the bottle shelf from the
door to make it easier to take out the
compartments and the divider.
^ Pull the compartments out as far as
they will go.
To replace the compartment
^ place it back on the fully extended
runners.
^ Push the compartment back into the
appliance until it clicks into position.
Adjusting the condiment
tray/bottle shelf
^ Lift the tray/shelf up and out of the
stainless steel frame to remove.
^ Push up the stainless steel frame,
and remove.
^ Replace the frame at the required
height. Ensure that it is securely
pushed back into position.
^ Holding the sides of the compartment
at the back, lift it up and then
forwards and out.
Push the runners back in again to
avoid injury or damage.
^ Carefully pull out the lid between the
compartments slightly, and lift it
down and out.
^ To replace it, insert the compartment
lid from beneath into the holders, and
push it back into place.
Take care when cleaning the
appliance that you do not wash the
special lubricant out of the
telescopic runners.
Wipe them with a well-wrung out
damp cloth only.
26
^ Some stainless steel frames are
easier to remove and replace if you
put your hand behind the back bar of
the frame and lift it upwards.
^ Replace the tray/shelf in the frame.
The tray/shelf can be removed
completely and used as a serving tray
at the table.
Adjusting the interior fittings
Universal container
Moving the bottle divider
(depending on model)
(depending on model)
The universal container can be used
both to store and serve food.
The bottle divider can be moved to the
left or right to ensure that bottles are
held securely in position when the door
is opened and shut.
The bottle divider can be removed
completely (e.g. for cleaning).
^ To do this, push up the front edge of
the bottle divider, and disengage it.
It consists of a deep tray a and a
shallow tray b. Both trays fit the
stainless steel frame.
If you wish to use the universal
container to serve food,
^ place the shallow tray b in the
stainless steel frame, and use the
deep tray as a lid a.
You can lift the universal container,
including contents, out of the frame and
take it to the table.
27
Automatic defrost
Refrigerator section and
PerfectFresh zone
The refrigerator section and the
PerfectFresh zone defrost
automatically.
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the refrigerator section
and the PerfectFresh zone whilst in use.
You do not need to remove this, as it
will defrost and evaporate automatically
with the warmth generated by the
appliance.
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.
28
Cleaning and care
A range of Miele branded cleaning

descaling agents,
To help prevent re-soiling, treat
stainless steel surfaces with Miele
stainless steel conditioning agent.
Unlike stainless steel cleaning
agents, the conditioning agent does
not contain any abrasive substances
and will gently remove soiling. Each
time it is used, it forms a water and
dirt repellent protective coating.
Do not let water get into the
electronic unit or the light.
Do not let water get into the
drainage channel and drain hole
when cleaning.
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven sprays,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive sponges and
brushes, e.g. pot scourers,
– melamine eraser blocks,
– sharp metal scrapers.
Do not use steam cleaning
apparatus to clean the appliance.
Steam could reach the electrical
components and cause a short
circuit.
The data plate located inside the
appliance must not be removed. It
contains information which is
required in the event of a service
call.

shelves, for cleaning.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the interior and
accessories
^ Clean the appliance at least once a
month.
Remove soiling immediately to
prevent it from drying on.
Use lukewarm water with a little
washing-up liquid.
The following are dishwasher safe:
– the butter dish, egg trays
(supplied as standard, depending on
model)
^ Clean the interior shelves and
drawers by hand. These are not
suitable for cleaning in a dishwasher.
^ Clean the condensate channel and
drain hole frequently, so that
condensate can drain away
unhindered. Use a straw or similar to
clear the drain if necessary. Remove
the PerfectFresh zone compartments
first.
^ The PerfectFresh zone compartments
are on telescopic rails. They should
only be wiped with a well-wrung-out
damp cloth.
– the bottle and condiment shelves in
the door (removed from their stainless
steel frames)
Make sure that you do not wash the
special lubricant out of the
telescopic rails.
– the butter and cheese compartment
(with the stainless steel trim removed)
^ After cleaning, wipe the interior and
accessories with a damp cloth and
dry with a soft cloth.
Leave the door open to air the
appliance for a short while.
The stainless steel frames and the
stainless steel trim on the butter and
cheese compartment in the door are
not suitable for cleaning in a
dishwasher.
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.
^ Any soiling on stainless steel
surfaces can be removed with Miele
stainless steel conditioning agent.
^ This will provide a protective coating
and help prevent resoiling. It is
important to treat the stainless steel
trim and frames with Miele stainless
steel conditioning agent each time
they are cleaned.
31
Cleaning and care
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.
Door seal

temperature should not go above or
below the climate range for which the
appliance is designed. The higher the
ambient temperature of the room, the
more energy the appliance requires to
operate.
Side-by-side
To avoid a build-up of condensation
and resultant damage, refrigerators
with PerfectFresh zones should not
generally be installed side-by-side next
to other refrigeration appliances.
The K 9557 iD-4 and K 9757 iD-3
refrigerators, however, have foamed in
side-wall heaters enabling them to be
installed side-by-side with certain
freezers.
Your dealer will be able to advise
you on which models are suitable.
^ The refrigerator must be installed to
the right of the freezer (when viewed
from the front). The side wall heating
in the internal wall is insulated to
prevent the build-up of condensation
between the two appliances.
38
Important: tropical / humid
environments
During periods of high humidity,
some condensation may appear on
outside surfaces of cooling
appliances. This condensation will
disappear when humidity levels
drop. For prevention, it is advisable
to install the appliance with sufficient
ventilation in a dry and/or an
air-conditioned room.
Please ensure that doors are closing
and sealing properly.
Please ensure that the appliance is
installed in accordance with these
installation instructions and that the
handle is fitted correctly. Should you
require further assistance please
contact your Miele customer service
centre.
Climate range
The appliance is designed for use
within certain climate ranges (ambient
temperatures), and should not be used
outside this range. The climate range of
the appliance is stated on the data
plate inside the appliance.

Operating in a room which is too cold
will cause the cooling system to switch
off for too long, causing the internal
temperature in the appliance to rise
with the risk of food deteriorating and
going off.
Installation
Ventilation
Before installing the appliance
Air at the back of the appliance gets
warm. The appliance housing unit must
be constructed to allow sufficient space
for ventilation.
^ Before installation remove the cover
strip, sealing strip and other
accessories from inside the
appliance and from the external rear
wall of the appliance.
The air inlet to the appliance is via the
plinth in the housing unit.
A ventilation gap of at least 38 mm
depth must be allowed for behind the
appliance for air to circulate.
The cross-sectional area for ventilation
in the plinth and the housing unit and
also beneath the ceiling needs to be at
least 200 cm2 throughout to ensure that
warm air can be drawn through
unhindered. Otherwise the appliance
has to work harder, resulting in an
increase in electricity consumption.
The ventilation gaps must not be
covered or blocked in any way. They
should be dusted on a regular basis.
^ Do not remove the spacers from the
back of the appliance. These ensure
the gap required between the back
of the appliance and the wall is
maintained.
^ Remove any cable clips from the rear
of the appliance.
^ Remove the red transport fixing a,
and use the stopper supplied b to
plug the empty hole.
39
Installation
^ Check that all parts at the back of the
appliance are unhindered. Carefully
remove any hindrance.
Does your old appliance have
a different hinging
mechanism?
If your old appliance had a different
type of hinging, the furniture door can
still be used. Remove the old hinges
from the housing unit. They are no
longer required because the furniture
door is now fitted to the appliance door.
All the necessary parts are supplied or
can be ordered from the Miele Spare
Parts Department.
Stainless steel front
(depending on model)
The old door can be replaced by a
stainless steel front if required.
This is available from your dealer or the
Miele Spare Parts Department.

Adjusting the door hinges
The door hinges are set ex-works to
enable the doors to be opened wide.
However, if the opening angle of the
door needs to be limited for any reason,
the hinges can be adjusted to
accommodate this.
For example, if the appliance door hits
an adjacent wall when opened, the
opening angle can be limited to 90°.
^ Place the locking pins supplied for
limiting the door opening into the
hinges from above.
The door opening angle is now limited
to 90°.
42

Building in the appliance
Building into a peninsular run
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.
When built into a peninsular run, the
rear of the building-in niche must be
fitted with a kitchen furniture panel.
Aligning the housing unit
To install the appliance you will need
the following:
– a cross-slotted screwdriver,
– a selection of Torx screwdrivers,
– a hexagon spanner.
Weight of the furniture door
Before fitting a furniture door, ensure
that the weight of the door does not
exceed the maximum permitted:
Appliance
Maximum weight of
furniture door in kg
K 9457 iD-4
19
K 9557 iD-3/-4
20
K 9757 iD-3
23
Fitting a door which is heavier than
the maximum permitted could
damage the hinges.
46
The housing unit must be carefully
aligned using a spirit level before
installing the appliance. The unit
corners must be at right angles, as
otherwise the furniture door will not
align correctly with the 4 corners of the
appliance.
Building in the appliance
Preparing the appliance
^ Open the appliance door.
^ Slide cover strip a into the holder in
the middle of the appliance as
illustrated with the bumps facing
downwards. The bumps will fit into
the keyhole slots.
^ Position the mains electricity cable so
that the appliance can be connected
easily once installed.
^ Using a screwdriver, remove cover
c from the top corner of 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.

Building in the appliance
Building in the appliance
^ Fit cover g onto fixing bracket h.
^ Secure fixing bracket h to the
bottom of the appliance with screws
i (M5 x 15).
^ Carefully remove the protective foil
from sealing strip j.
– With 16 mm thick walls:
The spacers should touch the front
edge at the top and bottom of the
side walls of the housing unit, detail
a.
^ Apply the sealing strip to the side of
the appliance on which the door is
opened so that it is flush with the
front edge of the appliance.
Fit the sealing strip so that it meets
up with the lower edge of top cover
d and then cut the sealing strip
2 - 3 mm above bottom fixing bracket
h.
– With 19 mm thick walls:
The front edges of the top and
bottom hinges sit flush with the front
edge of the housing unit side walls,
detail b.
^ Push the appliance into the niche
until covers d and g touch the front
edge of the side walls of the housing
unit.
^ Make sure that the covers on the top
and bottom fixing brackets sit flush
with the front edges of the housing
unit side walls, detail d.
This will create a gap all round of
42 mm to the front edges of the
housing unit side walls.
48
Building in the appliance
On furniture with door fittings (e.g.
stubs, seals etc) the dimension of
these must be taken into account when
making sure there is a gap all round of
42 mm.
Securing the appliance in the
niche
^ Pull the appliance forwards by the
dimension of the door fitting to keep
the gap at 42 mm all round.
The hinges and the covers will now
protrude by the dimension of the door
fitting.
Tip: Removing the door fittings. This will
ensure that the door is flush with the
surrounding kitchen unit furniture doors.
If the all round gap of 42 mm is not
maintained between the appliance
casing and the front edge of the
housing unit side wall the door may
not shut properly.
This could lead to a build-up of ice
and condensation and also cause
operational faults.
^ Align the appliance height on both
sides by altering the adjustable feet
using the spanner supplied c.
^ Press the appliance against the
housing unit wall on the hinge side.
^ To fix the appliance to the housing
unit at the top and bottom, screw the

(On large or divided doors, attach a
second pair of fixing brackets a in the
handle region of the door. Use the
pre-drilled holes in the appliance door.)
^ Tighten all screws again.
– Align depth Z on the furniture door:
Loosen screws f at the top of the
appliance door, and loosen the
hexagon-headed screw g at the
bottom of the fixing bracket. By
moving the furniture doors, create a
gap of 2 mm between the furniture
doors and the front edge of the
niche.
52
