Caring for the environment

Disposal of the packing material

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

Disposal of your old appliance

Electrical and electronic appliances often contain materials which, if handled or disposed of incorrectly, could be potentially hazardous to human health and to the environment.

They are, however, essential for the correct functioning of your appliance.

Please do not therefore dispose of it with your household waste.

Ensure that any plastic wrappings, bags etc. are disposed of safely and kept out of the reach of babies and young children. Danger of suffocation!

Rather than just throwing these materials away, please ensure that they are recycled.

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

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

Take care not to damage the pipework at the back of it before or during transportation to an authorised collection depot.

In this way, refrigerant in the pipework and oil in the compressor will be contained, and will not leak out into the environment.

6

This appliance complies with all relevant local and national safety requirements. Improper use can, however, present a risk of both personal injury and material damage.

To avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the appliance, please read these instructions carefully before installation and before using it for the first time. They contain important notes on the installation, safety, operation and care of the appliance.

Keep these instructions in a safe place and pass them on to any future user.

7

Warning and Safety instructions

Technical safety

~

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

A damaged appliance is dangerous.

~

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

~

This appliance contains the coolant

Isobutane (R600a), a natural gas which is environmentally friendly. Although it is flammable, it does not damage the ozone layer and does not increase the greenhouse effect. The use of this coolant has, however, led to a slight increase in the noise level of the appliance. In addition to the noise of the compressor, you might be able to hear the coolant flowing around the system. This is unavoidable, but does not have any adverse effect on the performance of the appliance.

Care must be taken during the transportation and installation of the appliance that no parts of the cooling system are damaged. Leaking coolant can damage the eyes.

In the event of any damage:

- avoid open flames and anything which creates a spark,

- disconnect from the mains,

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

- contact the Service Department for advice.

~

The more coolant there is in an appliance, the larger the room it should be installed in. In the event of a leakage, if the appliance is in a small room, there is the danger of combustible gases building up.

For every 8 g of coolant at least 1 m 3 of room space is required. The amount of coolant in the appliance is stated on the data plate inside the appliance.

~

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

~

Before connecting the appliance, make sure that the connection data on the data plate (voltage and connected load) match the mains electricity supply.

This data must correspond in order to avoid the risk of damage to the appliance. Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.

~

Do not connect the appliance to the mains electricity supply by a multi-socket unit or an extension lead.

These do not guarantee the required safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).

8

Warning and Safety instructions

~

The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when continuity is complete between it and an effective earthing system which complies with current local and national safety regulations. It is most important that this basic safety requirement is present and tested regularly, and where there is any doubt, the household wiring system should be inspected by a qualified electrician.

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

~

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

Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for unauthorised work.

~

While the appliance is under guarantee, repairs should only be undertaken by a service technician authorised by the manufacturer.

Otherwise the guarantee will be invalidated.

~

The appliance must be isolated from the electricity supply during installation, maintenance and repair work.

Warning and Safety instructions

Correct use

~

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

~

Do not take ice cubes out with your bare hands and never place ice cubes or ice lollies in your mouth straight from the freezer.

The very low temperature of the frozen ice or lollies can cause frost burn to the lips and tongue.

~

Do not refreeze thawed or partially thawed food.

Defrosted food should be used up as quickly as possible, as food soon loses its nutritional value and goes off.

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

~

Observe the "use by" dates given on food to avoid the risk of food poisoning.

Storage times will depend on several factors, including the freshness and quality of the food as well as the temperature at which it is stored. Follow the instructions given on food manufacturer's packaging on storage conditions required, as well as the “use by” date.

~

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

~

Do not operate any electrical equipment (e.g. an electric ice-cream maker) inside the appliance. Danger of sparking and explosion.

~

Do not store cans or bottles containing carbonated drinks or liquids which could freeze in the freezer. The cans or bottles could explode.

Danger of injury and damage to the appliance.

~

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

~

Do not use sharp edged objects to

– remove frost and ice,

– separate frozen foods or remove ice trays.

They will damage the evaporator, causing irreversible damage to the appliance.

~

Do not use any oils or grease on the door seal, as these will cause the seal to deteriorate and become porous with time.

~

Do not block the ventilation gaps in the appliance as this would impair the efficiency of the appliance, increase the electricity consumption and could cause damage to the appliance.

10

Warning and Safety instructions

~

The appliance is designed for use within certain climate ranges (ambient temperatures), and should not be used outside this range. The climate range for your appliance is stated on the data plate inside the appliance.

Installing it in a room with too low an ambient temperature, e.g. a garage, can lead to the appliance switching off for longer periods so that it cannot maintain the required temperature.

~

Do not place electric heaters or candles in the appliance to defrost it.

These can damage the plastic parts.

~

Do not use defrosting sprays or de-icers, as they might contain substances which could damage the plastic parts or which could cause a build-up of gases and pose a danger to health.

~

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

Disposal of your old appliance

~

Before disposing of an old appliance, first make the door latch or lock unusable.

This way you will prevent children from accidentally locking themselves in and endangering their lives.

~

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

– puncturing the refrigerant channels in the evaporator.

– bending any pipework.

– scratching the surface coating.

Splashes of refrigerant can damage the eyes.

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

Where there is a high ambient room temperature.

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

Cellar section 8 to 12°C

Refrigerator section 4 to 5 °C

PerfectFresh zone just above 0 °C

Freezer section -18°C

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

Wine storage section 10 to 12 °C

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

Store food in an organised way.

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

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

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

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

Store food covered or packaged.

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

Place frozen food in the refrigerator to defrost.

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

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

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

12

^ switch the appliance off,

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

^ clean the appliance out and

^ leave the door ajar to air the appliance.

If, during a long absence, the appliance is switched off but not cleaned out and the door is left shut, there is a danger of mould and odours building up inside the appliance.

16

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.

To freeze fresh food and to store frozen food for a long time, a temperature of

-18 °C is required. At this temperature the growth of micro-organisms is generally halted. As soon as the temperature rises above -10 °C, the micro-organisms become active in the food again so that it cannot be kept as long. For this reason, partially defrosted or defrosted food must not be re-frozen.

Food may be re-frozen once it has been cooked, as the high temperatures achieved when cooking destroy most micro-organisms.

The temperature in the appliance will rise:

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

– the more food that is stored in it,

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

– the higher the ambient temperature surrounding the appliance.

The appliance is designed for use in specific ambient temperatures

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

Setting the temperature

The temperature inside the appliance can be selected by touching the arrow sensors on either side of the temperature display.

By touching the

X sensor: the temperature will get colder

Y sensor: the temperature will get warmer.

The temperature being set will flash in the display.

When touching the sensors, the following information shows in the display:

– Touching a sensor once: the last

temperature selected flashes.

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

1 °C steps.

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

When the highest or lowest temperature in the range is reached, the X or Y sensor disappears.

Approx. 5 seconds after taking your finger off the sensor, the current temperature inside the appliance is automatically shown.

17

The correct temperature

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.

Changing the temperature display brightness

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

^ Touch and leave your finger on the X sensor.

Temperature range

The temperature can be adjusted from:

-14 °C to -28 °C

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

Temperature display

During normal operation, the temperature display on the control panel shows the temperature in the warmest part of the appliance.

^ At the same time, briefly touch the

On/Off sensor (without letting go of the

X sensor).

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

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

^ Touch the On/Off sensor again.

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

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

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

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

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

^ Touch the On/Off sensor.

You have now left the settings mode.

18

Alarm

Your appliance has been fitted with a warning system which ensures that the temperature in the appliance cannot rise unnoticed and to avoid energy being wasted if the door is left open.

Switching the temperature alarm off early

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

Activating the alarm system

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

Temperature alarm

An alarm will sound if the temperature becomes too warm.

The alarm off sensor will flash red and the "Freezing" symbol will flash.

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

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

– when freezing large amounts of food at once.

– in the event of a power cut.

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

^ Touch the alarm off sensor.

The alarm will stop.

The alarm off sensor and the

"Freezing" symbol will continue to flash until the correct temperature has been reached.

However, if the temperature remains above -18 °C for a long time, check that the frozen food has not started to defrost. If it has, check that the food is safe to use and if it is, then use it as soon as possible.

19

Alarm

Door alarm

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

The alarm off sensor will light up red and the "Freezing" symbol will flash.

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

Switching the door alarm off early

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

^ Touch the alarm off sensor.

The alarm will stop.

The Alarm off sensor will light up constantly and the "Freezing" symbol will continue to flash until the door has been closed.

20

Super freeze

Super freeze

Switch the Super freeze function on before putting fresh food into the freezer.

This helps food to freeze quickly and retain its nutrients, vitamins, flavours and appearance.

Super freeze is not necessary:

– when placing food in the freezer that is already frozen.

– when freezing less than 2 kg fresh food daily.

Switching on Super freeze

When freezing small quantities of food in the freezer, the Super freeze function should be switched on 6 hours

beforehand. When freezing the

maximum load of food, the Super freeze function should be switched on

24 hours beforehand.

Switching off Super freeze

The Super freeze function will switch off automatically after a minimum of 30 hours and a maximum of 65 hours. The appliance will then continue to work at normal power.

To save energy, the Super freeze function can be switched off once a

constant temperature of -18°C or colder has been reached in the freezer.

You should check the temperature inside the appliance from time to time.

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

The appliance will continue running at normal power.

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

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

21

Freezing and storing food

Maximum freezing capacity

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

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

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

Isolation plate

(depending on model, available as an optional accessory)

The isolation plate is used to isolate freezer drawers which you do not wish to use, and thus save energy. It should be used if only small amounts of food are being stored in the freezer.

Freezing fresh food

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

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

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

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

Important

– At least 3 freezer drawers as well as the freezer tray must be used for freezing food.

The other drawers can be isolated if they are not needed. However, no fewer than the two bottom drawers can be isolated.

– The drawers being used for freezing must always be at the top of the freezer.

– The isolation plate must be fitted

below the lowest drawer in which food is being frozen.

– The fewer drawers you use, the more energy you will save. Using the isolation plate increases energy savings considerably.

Do not store food in the "inactive" drawers. The temperature is not controlled in these drawers and food stored in them would soon deteriorate.

22

Freezing and storing food

Example

If you only require 3 freezer drawers as well as the freezer tray for storing frozen food:

^ Place food in the top 3 freezer drawers, leaving the other drawers empty.

^ Take out the fourth drawer down and place the isolation plate under the third drawer.

This "switches off" (isolates) the drawers below.

Storing frozen food

When buying frozen food to store in your freezer, check

– that the packaging is not damaged,

– the use-by date,

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

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

^ Store it in the freezer as soon as possible.

Never re-freeze partially or fully defrosted food. Consume defrosted food as soon as possible as it will lose its nutritional value and spoil if left for too long. Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

23

Freezing and storing food

Home freezing

Only freeze fresh food which is in a good condition.

Hints on home freezing

– The following types of food are

suitable for freezing:

Fresh meat, poultry, game, fish, vegetables, herbs, fresh fruit, dairy products, pastry, leftovers, egg yolks, egg whites and a range of pre-cooked meals.

– The following types of food are not

suitable for freezing:

Grapes, lettuce, radishes, sour cream, mayonnaise, eggs in their shells, onions, whole raw apples and pears.

– To retain colour, taste and vitamin C, vegetables should be blanched after they have been trimmed and washed.

To blanch: bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, immerse the vegetables in the fast boiling water for 2-3 minutes, depending on variety. Remove, and plunge into ice-cold water to cool quickly. Drain and pack ready for freezing.

– Lean meat freezes better than fatty meat, and can be stored for considerably longer.

– To prevent chops, steaks, cutlets or rolled meat from freezing together in solid blocks when packed, separate with a sheet of plastic freezer film.

– Do not season fresh foods or blanched vegetables before freezing. Only season cooked food

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

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

Packing

^ Freeze food in portions.

Unsuitable packing material

- wrapping paper

- grease-proof paper

- cellophane

- bin bags

- plastic carrier bags

Suitable packing material

- plastic freezer film

- freezer bags

- aluminium foil

- freezer containers

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

^ Close the packaging tightly with

- rubber bands

- plastic clips

- string or bag ties

- freezer tape.

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

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

Freezing and storing food

Before placing food in the freezer

^ When freezing more than 2 kg of fresh food, switch on the Super freeze function for some time before placing the food in the freezer (see

"Super freeze").

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

The lowest freezer drawer must always remain in the appliance.

Placing food in the freezer

Fresh food can be placed in any drawer for freezing, however it is preferable to use the upper drawers.

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

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

Freezer calendar

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

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

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

Each drawer and glass cold plate can be loaded with a maximum of

25 kg.

If you remove a freezer drawer make sure that you do not block the ventilation slits in the back wall of the appliance. They are important for trouble-free operation of the appliance.

Freezing large items

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

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

2-3 months:

Cakes, ice cream, stew

3-5 months:

Fish, mushrooms, bread

6-8 months:

Pork, veal, poultry

10-12 months:

Beef, fruit, vegetables

25

Freezing and storing food

Defrosting

Frozen food can be defrosted in different ways:

– in a microwave oven,

– in an oven using the "Fan" or

"Defrost" setting,

– at room temperature,

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

– in a steam oven.

Poultry It is particularly important to observe food hygiene rules when defrosting poultry. Do not use the liquid from defrosted poultry. Pour it away and wash the container it was in, the sink and your hands. Danger of salmonella poisoning.

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

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

Ice cubes

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

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

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

Cooling drinks

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

more than one hour, as they could burst.

Never re-freeze partially or fully defrosted food. Consume defrosted food as soon as possible as it will lose its nutritional value and spoil if left for too long. Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

26

Freezing and storing food

Freezer tray

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

^ Space the food out loosely on the tray.

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

Cool pack

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

Place the cool pack in the top drawer of the freezer, directly on top of the food.

The cool pack will be at its most effective after it has been in the freezer for approx. 24 hours.

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

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

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

27

Defrosting

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

The moisture generated by defrosting collects in the condensor and is automatically dissipated by the condensor from time to time.

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

28

Cleaning and care

A range of Miele cleaning and conditioning agents is available from the Miele UK Spare Parts Department or via the internet at www.miele-shop.com.

Never use cleaning agents containing abrasive substances such as sand, soda, acids, chlorides or chemical solvents.

"Non-abrasive" cleaning agents are also unsuitable as they can cause matt areas to appear.

For stainless steel surfaces, use a suitable stainless steel conditioning agent.

Make sure that no water can penetrate into the electronic unit or into the light.

^ Take the freezer drawers and the glass cold plates out of the freezer to clean them.

Cleaning the outer casing, the interior and accessories

Use warm water with a little washing-up liquid. Wash all accessories and drawers by hand only. Do not wash in a dishwasher.

^ After cleaning, wipe the outer casing, 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.

^ Clean stainless steel surfaces with a proprietary stainless steel cleaning agent, following the manufacturer's instructions on the packaging.

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

Do not use steam cleaning apparatus to clean this appliance.

Steam could reach the electrical components and cause a short circuit.

The data plate located inside the appliance must not be removed. It contains information which is required in the event of a service call.

Before cleaning

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

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

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

Ventilation gaps

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

29

Cleaning and care

Door seal

Do not use any oils or grease on the door seal. These will cause the seal to deteriorate and become porous over time.

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

Metal grille at the back of the appliance

The metal grille at the back of the appliance (heat exchanger) should be dusted at least once a year. A build-up of dust will increase the energy consumption of the appliance.

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

After cleaning

^ Close the appliance door, insert the plug in the socket and switch the appliance back on.

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

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

^ Switch off the Super freeze function as soon as the temperature in the freezer is a constant -18 °C or colder.

30

Problem solving guide

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

What to do if . . .

. . . the appliance does not get cool.

^ Check whether the appliance has been switched on. The temperature display must be lit up.

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

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

Service Department.

. . . the temperature inside the appliance is too low.

^ Select a warmer temperature.

^ The Super freeze function is still switched on.

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

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

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

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

^ Check that the door has been closed properly.

. . . the compressor runs continuously.

To save energy, the compressor runs at a lower speed, but for longer, when less cooling is required.

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

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

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

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

If so, raise the temperature of the room.

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

31

Problem solving guide

. . . the alarm sounds and the alarm off sensor flashes.

The temperature in the freezer is too warm, because

^ the door has been opened too frequently, or large amounts of fresh food have been put in at once for freezing.

^ the ventilation gaps are blocked.

^ there has been a lengthy interruption to the power supply.

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

. . . a bar is lit up or flashing in the temperature display.

Check the temperature display about

6 hours after switching on the appliance. Only temperatures within the range the appliance can display will be shown.

. . . "nA" appears in the temperature display.

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

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

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

Depending on the temperature displayed, you should check the condition of food in the freezer. If it has defrosted or started to defrost, check that it is still safe to use and if so use it as soon as possible. Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

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

. . . " _F" shows in the temperature display.

There is a fault. Call the Service

Department.

. . . you cannot switch the appliance off.

The safety lock has been activated.

. . . "dn" appears in the temperature display.

The demonstration function is activated.

^ Call the Service Department.

32

Problem solving guide

. . . there is a build-up of frost on the front panel of the frost-free system.

This is not a fault. Droplets of condensate have settled on it and frozen. This may have been caused by one of the following:

^ The appliance door has been opened frequently or left open for a while.

^ A large quantity of fresh food has been placed in the appliance at once.

^ There has been an increase in the humidity in the room.

Keep the door closed as much as possible so that the Frost Free system has a chance to melt the ice droplets automatically.This may take several days.

. . . food has frozen together.

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

. . . the interior lighting is not working.

^ Was the door left open for too long?

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

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

^ Call the Service Department.

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

Danger of injury and damage.

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

exercise caution. Never look at the lighting with optical instruments

(magnifying glass or similar).

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

Department.

To prevent unnecessary loss of temperature it is advisable not to open the door while waiting for the appliance to be serviced.

33

Noises

Normal noises

Brrrrr...

Blubb, blubb....

Click....

Sssrrrrr....

What causes them

Humming noise made by the motor (compressor). This noise can get louder for brief periods when the motor is switching on.

A gurgling noise can be heard when coolant is circulating through the pipes.

Clicking sounds are made when the thermostat switches the motor on and off.

On multi-zone and frost-free appliances you can sometimes just hear the movement of air circulating inside the appliance.

Remember that the noise of the compressor and the coolant circulating in the system is unavoidable.

Noises that you can easily rectify

Rattling, vibrating

^ Place the door onto hinge pin c from above.

^ Close the door.

Replacing the soft-close door mechanism

^ Remove cover a from panel b, rotate it by 180° and refit it on the other side.

^ Fit hinge plate c onto the opposite side and secure it with screws d.

If necessary drill a pilot hole for the screws.

^ Fit covers a and b to their opposite sides.

^ Align the door with the appliance housing using the outer long slots in the lower hinge plate. Then tighten the screws.

48

^ Insert the soft-close mechanism back into the door, starting at the right hand side.

Changing the door hinging

^ Click cover f back into place.

Make sure that cover f fits properly so that the door can be closed without hindrance and the pin is protected.

^ Remove retaining clip g.

^ Slide the soft-close mechanism back into the door as far as it will go towards the appliance using a flat-headed screwdriver.

The screw holes on the left and right must line up perfectly.

^ First fix the soft-close mechanism onto the appliance side, then onto the handle side c, pushing it firmly towards the appliance.

^ Replace panel b onto the soft-close mechanism from above, clicking it back into place first at the bottom and then at the top.

^ Close the door.

^ Attach panel b to soft-close mechanism bracket d.

^ Align bracket d to the hinge plate, and insert pin e from above so that the right angle fits into the recess.

Aligning the appliance

The appliance door can be aligned to the housing using the outer long slots in the lower hinge plate.

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

^ Remove centre screw a from the hinge plate.

^ Slightly loosen both outer screws b.

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

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

Changing the door hinging

Refitting the handle

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

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

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

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

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

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

If this is not the case,

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

^ Then tighten all 4 fixing screws b.

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

Building in the appliance

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

They should be dusted on a regular basis.

a Top box b Appliance c Housing unit d Wall

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

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

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

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

When built into a kitchen run (max.

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

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

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