6
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
 The coolant system is tested for leaks. This appliance complies
with statutory safety requirements and the appropriate EU
guidelines.
 This appliance contains the coolant Isobutane (R600a), a natural
gas which is environmentally friendly. Although it is flammable, it
does not damage the ozone layer and does not increase the greenhouse effect.
The use of this coolant has, however, led to a slight increase in the
noise level of the appliance. In addition to the noise of the compressor, you might be able to hear the coolant flowing around the
system. This is unavoidable, and does not have any adverse effect
on the performance of the appliance.
Care must be taken during the transportation and setting up 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 naked flames or anything which creates a spark,
– disconnect the appliance from the mains electricity supply,
– ventilate the room where the appliance is located for several
minutes, and
– contact the Miele Service Department.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
 The more coolant there is in an appliance, the larger the room it
should be installed in. In the event of a leakage, if the appliance is in
a small room, there is the danger of combustible gases building up.
For every 8 g of coolant at least 1 m3 of room space is required. The
amount of coolant in the appliance is stated on the data plate inside
the appliance.
 To avoid the risk of damage to the appliance, make sure that the
connection data (fuse rating, frequency and voltage) on the data
plate corresponds to the household supply.
Check that this is the case before connecting the appliance. Consult
a qualified electrician if in any doubt.
 The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when correctly earthed. It is essential that this standard safety requirement is met. If in any doubt please have the electrical installation tested by a qualified electrician.
 Reliable and safe operation of this appliance can only be assured
if it has been connected to the mains electricity supply.
 If the electrical connection cable is faulty it must only be replaced
by a Miele authorised service technician to protect the user from
danger.
 Do not connect the appliance to the mains electrical supply by a
multi-socket adapter or extension lead. These are a fire hazard and
do not guarantee the required safety of the appliance.
 Do not use in a damp or wet environment (e.g. garage or utility
room). Moisture could reach live components or the electrical connection and cause a short circuit.
 This appliance must not be used in a non-stationary location (e.g.
on a ship).
 Do not use a damaged appliance. It could be dangerous. Check
the appliance for visible signs of damage.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
 The appliance must be isolated from the electricity supply during
installation, maintenance and repair work.
 Unauthorised installation, maintenance and repairs can cause
considerable danger for the user.
Installation, maintenance and repairs must only be carried out by a
Miele authorised technician.
 While the appliance is under guarantee, repairs should only be undertaken by a Miele authorised service technician. Otherwise the
guarantee is invalidated.
 Miele can only guarantee the safety of the appliance when genuine original Miele replacement parts are used. Faulty components
must only be replaced by Miele spare parts.
Correct use
 The appliance is designed for use within a certain climate range
(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, will lead to the appliance switching off
for longer periods so that it cannot maintain the required temperature.
 Do not cover or block the air vents as this could impair the efficiency of the appliance, increase the electricity consumption and
could cause damage to the components.
 If storing food which contains a lot of fat or oil in the appliance or
the door, make sure that it does not come into contact with plastic
components as this could cause stress cracks or break the plastic.
 Do not store explosive materials in the appliance or any products
containing propellants (e.g. spray cans). Electrical components could
cause flammable vapours to ignite. Danger of fire and explosion.
 Do not operate any electrical equipment (e.g. an electric ice cream
maker) inside the appliance. Danger of sparking and explosion.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
 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, causing injury or damage.
 Never handle frozen food or the metal parts of the appliance with
wet hands. Your hands may freeze to the frozen food or to the metal.
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 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.
 Observe the manufacturer's "use-by" dates and storage instructions 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.
 Only use genuine original Miele accessories and spare parts with
this appliance. Using accessories or spare parts from other manufacturers will invalidate the guarantee, and Miele cannot accept liability.
Stainless steel appliances
 Adhesives will damage the stainless steel surface and cause it to
lose its dirt-repellent protective coating. Do not use sticky notes,
transparent adhesive tape, masking tape or other types of adhesive
on the stainless steel surface.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
 The surface is susceptible to scratching. Even magnets can cause
scratching.
Cleaning and care
 Do not use any oils or grease on the door seals, as these will
cause the seals to deteriorate and become porous with time.
 Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean or defrost this appliance.
Steam could reach electrical components and cause a short circuit.
 Sharp edged or pointed objects will damage the evaporator, causing irreversible damage to the appliance. Do not use sharp edged or
pointed objects to
– remove frost and ice,
– separate frozen foods or remove ice trays.
 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 could contain
substances which could damage the plastic parts or which might
cause the build-up of gases and pose a danger to health.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
Transporting the appliance
 Always transport the appliance in an upright position and in its original transport packaging to avoid damage in transit.
 Danger of injury and damage. The appliance is very heavy and
must be transported by two people.
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.
 Splashes of coolant can damage the eyes. Be careful not to damage any part of the pipework whilst awaiting disposal, e.g. by
– puncturing the coolant channels in the condenser,
– bending any pipework, or
– scratching the surface coating.
12
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing material
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the manufacturing process and also reduces the
amount of waste in landfill sites.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances often contain valuable materials. They
also contain specific materials, compounds and components, which were
essential for their correct function and
safety. These could be hazardous to human health and to the environment if
disposed of with your domestic waste
or if handled incorrectly. Please do not,
therefore, dispose of your old appliance
with your household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local community waste collection / recycling
centre for electrical and electronic appliances, or contact your dealer or
Miele for advice. You are also responsible (by law, depending on country) for
deleting any personal data that may be
stored on the appliance being disposed
of.
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 into the environment.
Please ensure that your old appliance
presents no danger to children while
being stored awaiting disposal. See
"Warning and Safety instructions" for
more information.

25
The correct temperature
It is very important to set the correct
temperature for storing food in the appliance. Micro-organisms will cause
food which is not stored at the correct
temperature to deteriorate rapidly. Temperature influences the growth rate of
these micro-organisms. Reducing the
temperature reduces their growth rate.
The temperature in the appliance will
rise:
– the more often the door is opened
and the longer it is kept open,
– the more food that is 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 within specific ambient temperatures (climate
range). Do not use in ambient temperatures for which it is not designed.
26
. . . in the refrigerator section
and in the PerfectFresh Pro
zone
We recommend a temperature of 4 °C
in the refrigerator section.
In the PerfectFresh Pro zone the temperature is controlled automatically and
is in the range 0 to 3 °C.
Automatic temperature distribution
(DynaCool)
The fan switches on automatically 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.
. . . in the freezer section
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 fully
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.

Depending on the ambient temperature
and the temperature setting, it can take
the appliance a few hours to reach the
temperature required and for this temperature to then be shown as a constant temperature in the display.
 If the temperature in the freezer
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 or cook it before freezing
it again.

Temperature range
– The temperature in the refrigerator
section can be adjusted from 3 to
9 °C.
– The temperature in the freezer section can be adjusted from -15 °to
-26 °C.
The temperature in the PerfectFresh Pro
zone is maintained between 0 and 3 °C.
However, if you would like it to be
warmer or colder, you can adjust the
temperature slightly.
Tip: You can select a lower setting for
storing, for example, particularly delicate fish. A slightly higher temperature is
preferable for storing ready-to-eat food,
for example.

Using Super cool and Super freeze
The following functions can be selected, depending on section.
– Refrigerator section
Super cool 
– Freezer section
Super freeze 
Super freeze function 
For optimum results switch on the Super freeze function before putting fresh
food into the freezer section. This helps
food to freeze quickly and retain its nutrients, vitamins, flavours and appearance.
Super cool function 
Super freeze is not necessary:
The Super cool function can be used to
rapidly reduce the temperature in the
refrigerator section to its lowest setting
(depending on the room temperature).
– when placing food in the freezer that
is already frozen.
Tip: Super cool is particularly recommended for the rapid chilling of large
amounts of fresh food or drink.
When Super cool is switched on, the
appliance will work at full power to
lower the temperature in the appliance.
It switches itself off automatically after
approx. 12 hours.
Tip: To save energy, Super cool can be
switched off once food and drinks are
sufficiently chilled.
When Super cool is switched off the appliance reverts to working at normal
power.
– when freezing up to 1 kg fresh food
daily.
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.
When Super freeze is switched on, the
appliance will work at full power to
lower the temperature in the appliance.
The Super freeze function will switch itself off automatically after approx. 65
hours. The quantity of fresh food placed
in the freezer will determine the duration
before the Super freeze function
switches off.
Tip: To save energy, the Super freeze
function can be switched off once a
constant temperature of -18 °C is
reached inside the freezer section.
Check the temperature inside the
freezer section.
When Super freeze is switched off, the
appliance will run at normal power
again.

If the temperature in the freezer section
becomes too warm  will light up red
in the temperature display for the
freezer section.
An alarm will also sound until the cause
of the alarm is rectified or the alarm is
switched off.
The temperature the appliance is set at
determines the temperature the appliance recognises as being too warm.
The temperature alarm is only displayed in the start screen and not
when selecting a setting.
A temperature alarm is displayed before an existing door alarm.
– when the appliance is switched on
and the temperature in the freezer
section differs greatly from the set

Explanation of the different
Settings
Switching Party mode  on or off
This function is particularly useful if you
need to cool or freeze large quantities
of food and drink quickly and make ice
cubes, for example, if you are expecting
a large number of guests.
Super cool and Super freeze are
switched on automatically:
The refrigerator section as well as the
freezer section cool down very rapidly
to their lowest temperature (depending
on the ambient temperature).
Tip: Switch the function on approx.
4 hours before placing food in the appliance.
If Party mode cannot be switched on,
the refrigerator section has been
switched off separately or Holiday
mode is switched on.
Party mode will switch off automatically
after approx. 20 hours. You can switch
it off earlier at any time.
If previously switched on, Party mode
will switch off if there is an interruption
to the power supply.
35
Selecting further settings
Switching Holiday mode  on / off
This function is useful when going on
holiday if you do not wish to switch the
refrigerator section off completely and
do not need a high degree of cooling.
The freezer section remains switched
on at -18 °C. The refrigerator section is
regulated at a temperature of 15 °C,
which automatically sets the temperature in the PerfectFresh Pro zone to
between 9 and 12 °C. In this way the
refrigerator section remains in operation
whilst saving energy.
 Do not store any temperaturesensitive food which goes off easily
such as fruit, vegetables, fish, meat
and dairy products during this time.
Food which does not go off quickly can
be stored in the appliance for some
time at this moderate refrigerator section temperature and the energy consumption is lower than in normal operation.
This also prevents the build-up of
odours and mould which can occur if
the refrigerator section is switched off
and the door is closed.
When Holiday mode is switched on, it is
displayed in the start screen:

44
Storing food in the refrigerator section
 Danger of explosion.
Do not store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products containing propellants (e.g. spray cans).
 If storing food which contains a
lot of fat or oil in the appliance or the
appliance door, make sure that it
does not come into contact with
plastic components as this could
cause stress cracks or break the
plastic.
Different storage zones
Due to natural air circulation there are
different temperature zones in the refrigerator section.
Cold, heavy air sinks to the lowest section of the appliance. Make use of the
different temperature zones when placing food in the appliance.
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.
Food must not touch the back of the
refrigerator section as it may freeze to
the back wall.
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 is less pronounced.
Warmest area
The warmest area in the refrigerator
section is at the top in the front area
and in the door. Use this for storing butter and cheese.
Coldest area
The coldest area in the refrigerator section is directly above the PerfectFresh
Pro zone dividing plate and at the back
of the appliance. The temperature in the
PerfectFresh Pro zone compartments is
even colder.
Use these areas in the refrigerator and
in the PerfectFresh Pro zone for all delicate and highly perishable food, e.g.
– fish, meat, poultry,
– sausage products, ready meals,

Storing food in the refrigerator section
Food which is not suitable for
storage in the refrigerator section
Not all food is suitable for refrigeration
at temperatures below 5°C as some
food is sensitive to cold. The appearance, consistency, taste and / or the vitamin content of certain types of food
can be adversely affected by being
stored in too cold a place.
Food which does not tolerate cold temperatures includes:
– Pineapples, avocados, bananas,
pomegranates, mangoes, melons,
papayas, passion fruit, citrus fruits
(such as lemons, oranges, mandarins, grapefruit),
– Fruit which is not yet ripe
– Aubergines/eggplant, cucumbers,
potatoes, peppers/capsicum, tomatoes, courgettes/zucchini,
– Some hard cheeses, e.g. Parmesan.
46
When shopping for food
The freshness of food when first placed
in the appliance is the most important
factor in determining how long it stays
fresh, and how long it can be kept in the
appliance.
Always observe the use-by date and
the recommended storage temperature.
Time out of the refrigerator should be
kept to a minimum, for example, when
transporting food in a hot car.
Tip: Take a cool bag with you when
shopping and on return place food into
the appliance immediately.
Storing food correctly
Food should generally be stored
covered or packaged in the refrigerator
section (there are some exceptions to
this rule in the PerfectFresh Pro zone see below). This will prevent food
smells from affecting other foods, food
from drying out, and also any crosscontamination of bacteria. This is especially important for storing proteinbased food such as meat or fish.
The growth of bacteria, such as salmonella, can be avoided by setting the
correct temperature and maintaining
good standards of hygiene.
Storing food in the PerfectFresh Pro zone
The PerfectFresh Pro zone provides
ideal storage conditions for fruit, vegetables, fish, meat and dairy products.
Food stays fresh considerably longer
while retaining both flavour and vitamins.
The temperature in the PerfectFresh Pro
zone is maintained automatically at
between 0 and 3 °C. While lower than
the temperature in a standard refrigerator, this is the optimum temperature
range for storing fresh food which is not
sensitive to cold. The deterioration process is decelerated at this temperature
range so food can be stored without
loss of freshness for considerably
longer than in a standard refrigerator.
The humidity level in the PerfectFresh
Pro zone can also be regulated to suit
the food being stored. Food retains its
own moisture if stored at a higher humidity and so does not dry out as
quickly. This allows it to stay crisp and
fresh for longer.
Remember that the fresher the food
when placed in the appliance, the
longer it will stay fresh.
Take food out of the PerfectFresh Pro
zone approx. 30 to 60 minutes before
using it. The aroma and taste do not
fully develop until the food has
reached room temperature.
The PerfectFresh Pro zone is divided
into two areas:
The Info system (shown here in sections) above the PerfectFresh Pro zone
helps you to choose the correct compartment and the appropriate setting in
the humidity controlled compartment.
– The temperature is between
0 and 3 °C in the top dry compartment and the humidity level is not increased . Use this compartment to
store fish, meat, dairy products and
any other type of food, providing it is
wrapped.
– The temperature is between 0 - 3 °C
in the bottom humidity controlled
compartment (depending on model,
there may be one or more of this type
of compartment). Depending on the
position of the regulator, the humidity
level is not increased  or increased
 / . Fruit and vegetables can be
stored in this compartment with the
humidity increased.
Each type of food has its own characteristics which determine the specific
storage conditions it requires.
47
Storing food in the PerfectFresh Pro zone
Dry compartment 
Humidity controlled compartThe dry compartment is ideal for storing ment ,  / 
foods which perish easily, such as
– fish and seafood;
– meat, poultry and sausages;
– salads and lettuce;
– dairy products, e.g. yogurt, cheese,
cream, quark etc;
– you can also use the dry compartment to store all kinds of food,
providing it is wrapped.
The main advantage of the dry compartment is the low temperature (rather
than the humidity). The humidity in the
dry compartment is approximately the
same as in a standard refrigerator.
Please note that food rich in protein deteriorates faster than other types of
food.
Shellfish, for example, deteriorates
faster than fish, and fish deteriorates
faster than meat.
Always keep these foods covered or
wrapped.
Humidity level not increased 
At the  setting the humidity controlled
compartment becomes a dry compartment - the regulator opens the vents in
the compartment so the humidity escapes (see "Dry compartment ").
Increased humidity  / 
With the regulator at the  or  setting, the humidity controlled compartment is suitable for storing fruit and vegetables:
– Select the  setting if storing a large
quantity of fruit and vegetables (the
regulator partially closes the vents in
the compartment so that some of the
moisture already present is retained).
– Select the  setting, if using the humidity controlled compartment to
store only a small quantity of fruit and
vegetables (the regulator closes the
vents in the compartment completely
so that all of the moisture already
present is retained).
Tip: If the humidity level is too high and
a lot of moisture has collected in the
compartment, select the  setting. If
the humidity level is too low, wrap the
food in airtight packaging.
The humidity level greatly depends on
the type and quantity of food being
stored, if stored unwrapped.
48
Storing food in the PerfectFresh Pro zone
High humidity in the humidity controlled compartment can cause condensate to build up on the floor of
the compartment as well as beneath
the lid.
Use a cloth to remove the condensate.
Regulating the humidity level in
the humidity-controlled compartment
A slide control is used to regulate the
amount of moisture in the humidity controlled compartment by setting it , 
or .
Note for test institutes:
When measuring energy consumption
in accordance with the standard, the
regulator in the humidity controlled
compartment should be set to the
 setting ("humidity not increased").
 Push the regulator back as far as it
will go and then release it slowly.
The regulator will click into the  setting
automatically
 To select the  or  setting, push
the regulator back and release it
again to engage it in the  or  position.
49
Storing food in the PerfectFresh Pro zone
Storage results for food stored
in the PerfectFresh Pro zone
Observe the following tips 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 the PerfectFresh Pro compartments before storing food in them.
– Allow very moist food to drain before
placing it in the PerfectFresh Pro
zone.
– Do not store food which is sensitive
to cold in the PerfectFresh Pro zone
(see "Food which is not suitable for
storing in the refrigerator").
– Select the correct PerfectFresh Pro
compartment as well as the correct
position for the humidity controlled
compartment regulator (humidity not
increased or humidity increased).
50
– Increased humidity  /  in the humidity controlled compartment is
achieved by the moisture present in
the food being stored, i.e. the more
food stored in the compartment, the
higher the humidity.
If too much moisture has collected in
the compartment and the food has
been affected, select the  setting.
Otherwise dry the floor and underneath the lid with a cloth and place a
rack or similar item in the compartment so that moisture can then drip
down.
If the humidity level becomes too low
at the  setting, wrap the food in
airtight packaging.
– If you think that the temperature in
the PerfectFresh Pro zone is too high
or too low, try regulating it slightly by
selecting a different level. See "Adjusting the temperature in the
PerfectFresh Pro zone ".
Under certain circumstances, a setting
of Level 1 to Level 4 can cause temperatures below zero to be reached.
Food could freeze.
– If the adjustment is not enough, try
regulating it 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
Pro compartments as otherwise the
cold temperature will damage the
food.

Freezing and storing food
Maximum freezing capacity
Storing frozen food
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".
When buying frozen food to store in
your freezer, check
The maximum freezing capacity given
on the data plate has been calculated
according to DIN EN ISO 15502 Standard.
Freezing fresh food
Fresh food should be frozen as quickly
as possible. This way the nutritional
value of the food, its vitamin content,
appearance and taste are not impaired.
Food which takes a long time to freeze
will lose more water from its cells,
which then shrink. During the defrosting
process, only some of this water is reabsorbed by the cells; the rest collects
around the food.
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.
54
– 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.
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, cakes, leftovers, egg yolks,
egg whites and a range of precooked 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.
fore freezing, but care should be
taken as the taste of some spices alters when frozen.
– Placing hot foods or drinks in the
freezer causes food that is already
frozen to partially thaw and increases
energy consumption. Allow hot foods
and drinks to cool down before placing them in the freezer.
Packaging
 Freeze food in portions.
Suitable packing material
– plastic freezer film
– freezer bags
– aluminium foil
– freezer containers
– To retain colour, taste, aroma 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.
Unsuitable packing material
– Lean meat freezes better than fatty
meat, and can be stored for considerably longer.
 Close the packaging tightly with
– To prevent chops, steaks, cutlets or
rolled meat from freezing together in
solid blocks when packed, separate
with a sheet of plastic freezer film.
– plastic clips
– Do not season fresh foods or
blanched vegetables before freezing.
Only season cooked food lightly be-
Tip: Freezer bags may also be sealed
using home heat sealing kits.
– wrapping paper
– grease-proof paper
– cellophane
– bin bags
– plastic carrier bags
 Expel as much air as possible from
the packaging.
– rubber bands
– string or bag ties
– freezer tape.
55
Freezing and storing food
 Make a note of the contents and the
date of freezing on the packaging.
Before placing food in the freezer
 When freezing more than 1 kg of
fresh food, switch on the Super
freeze function for some time before
placing the food in the freezer (see
"Using Super cool and Super freeze Super freeze function").
This helps food which is already stored
in the freezer to stay frozen.
Placing food in the freezer section
 The following maximum loading
weights must not be exceeded:
– freezer drawer = 25 kg
– glass cold plate = 35 kg
- Freezing the maximum amount (see
data plate)
Ensure ventilation slots at the back
of the freezer section are always free
from obstruction.
If the ventilation slots are blocked the
cooling performance will decrease
and energy consumption will increase.
Place food on the glass plate in such
a way that the ventilation slots are
not blocked.
 Remove the upper freezer drawers.
 Place the food flat on the upper glass
cold plates so that it freezes through
to the core as quickly as possible.
Once frozen:
Unfrozen food should not touch
frozen food as this will cause frozen
food to begin to thaw.
 Make sure that the packaging and
containers are dry to prevent them
sticking together when frozen.
- Freezing small amounts of food
Place the food in the upper freezer
drawers.
 Place the food flat in the bottom of
the freezer drawer so that it freezes
through to the core as quickly as possible.
56
 Place the frozen food in the freezer
drawer and push it back in.
Freezing and storing food
Storage time for frozen food
Defrosting
The storage life of food is very variable,
even at a constant temperature of
-18 °C. Decomposition processes also
take place in frozen food, albeit at a
very reduced speed. For example fat
can become rancid from contact with
oxygen in the air. This is why lean meat
can be stored approx. twice as long as
fatty meat.
Frozen food can be defrosted in different ways:
The storage times quoted are guide values for the storage life of different food
groups in the freezer section.
Food group
Storage
time
(Months)
Ice cream
2 to 6
Bread, baked goods
2 to 6
Cheese
2 to 4
Fish, oily
1 to 2
Fish, lean
1 to 5
Sausage, ham
1 to 3
Game, pork
1 to 12
Poultry, beef
2 to 10
Vegetables, fruit
6 to 18
Herbs
6 to 10
Where the storage time given on the
packaging differs, follow the advice on
the packaging.
– in a microwave oven,
– in an oven using "Fan heat" or the
"Defrost" setting,
– at room temperature,
– in the refrigerator section (the cold
given off by the frozen food helps to
keep the other food cold),
– in a steam oven.
Flat pieces of partially thawed fish can
be placed directly into a hot frying pan.
Meat and poultry It is particularly important to observe food hygiene rules
when defrosting poultry. Do not use the
liquid from defrosted poultry. Pour it
away and wash the container it was in,
the sink and your hands. Danger of salmonella poisoning. Ensure that meat
and fish (e.g. mince, chicken, fish fillets)
do not come into contact with other
foods while defrosting. Catch the liquid
and dispose of it carefully.
Fruit should be defrosted at room temperature in its packaging, or in a
covered bowl.
Most vegetables can be cooked while
still frozen. Just put straight into boiling
water or hot fat. The cooking time is
slightly less than that of fresh vegetables due to changes in the cell structure.
57
Freezing and storing food
 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.
Cooling drinks quickly
To cool drinks quickly in the refrigerator
section, switch on the Super cool function.
Adjusting the interior fittings
Removing the drawers and glass
plates from the freezer section
The drawers can be removed for filling,
emptying or cleaning purposes.
You can also use the space in the
freezer section more flexibly. If you wish
to freeze large items such as a turkey or
game, the glass cold plates between
the drawers can be removed.
If you want to cool a large amount of
drinks, or if you want to cool drinks in
the freezer section, select Party mode 
from the Settings menu .
When cooling drinks quickly in the
freezer, make sure bottles are not left in
for more than one hour; otherwise
they could burst.
Tip: To avoid forgetting about bottles
placed in the freezer you can set the
minute minder (QuickCool timer ) in

Freezing and storing food
Using accessories
Ice cubes
Cool pack
The cool pack prevents the temperature
in the freezer rising too quickly in the
event of an interruption to the power
supply. This can help prolong the storage time.
 Fill the ice cube tray three quarters
full of 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 if it
is stuck.
 Place the cool pack in the top freezer
drawer.
The cool pack will be at its most effective after it has been in the freezer for
approx. 24 hours.
Tip: 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 time.
In the event of an interruption to the
power supply:
 Place the frozen cool pack directly on
top of the frozen food in the front of
the top drawer.
Tip: 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.
Tip: The cool pack can also be used in
a cool bag to keep food or drinks cool
for a short period of time.
59
Defrosting
Refrigerator section and
PerfectFresh Pro zone
The refrigerator section and the
PerfectFresh Pro zone defrost automatically.
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the refrigerator section
and PerfectFresh Pro zone whilst the
compressor is running. You do not need
to remove this, as it will defrost and
evaporate automatically with the
warmth generated by the compressor.
The condensate is drained away
through a channel and drain hole, then
fed into an evaporation system at the
back of the appliance.
 Condensate must be able to
drain away unhindered at all times.
Keep the condensate channel and
drain hole clean to enable this.
60
Freezer section
The appliance is equipped with a "Frost
free" system. The freezer defrosts automatically.
The moisture generated in the appliance collects on the condenser and is
automatically defrosted and dissipated
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.
Cleaning and care
 Do not let water get into the
electronic unit or the lighting.
– hard, abrasive sponges and brushes,
e.g. pot scourers
– melamine eraser blocks
 Steam from a steam cleaning appliance could reach the electrical
components and cause a short circuit.
Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean the appliance.
Cleaning water must not get into the
drain hole.
The data plate located inside the appliance must not be removed. It contains information which is required in
the event of a service call.
Cleaning agents
Cleaning and conditioning agents
used inside the appliance must be
food safe.
– sharp metal scrapers
We recommend treating stainless steel
surfaces with Miele stainless steel
conditioning agent (see "Guide to the
appliance - Optional accessories").
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.
We recommend using lukewarm water
with a little washing-up liquid to clean
surfaces of the appliance.
The following pages contain important
information on cleaning.
To avoid damaging all the surfaces of
your appliance, do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda, ammonia, acids or chlorides

Cleaning and care
Cleaning the door seals
 If a door seal is damaged or if it
has come out of the groove, the door
will not close properly and cooling
performance will be reduced.
Condensate will build up in the interior and this can cause a build-up
of ice.
Do not damage door seals and ensure that they do not come out of
their groove.
Do not use any grease or oil on door
seals as these will cause them to deteriorate and become porous over
time.
 Door seals should be cleaned regularly with clean water, and then wiped
dry with a soft cloth.

Installation
Building the appliance into a
kitchen run
 If the ventilation gaps given are
not observed, the compressor will
run more frequently and for longer
periods.
This will result in increased energy
consumption and a higher operating
temperature for the compressor. This
may, in turn, cause damage to the
compressor.
It is essential to observe the ventilation gaps given.
The appliance can be built into a kitchen run and installed directly next to a
kitchen furniture housing unit. The appliance front must protrude in front of
furniture fronts by at least 65 mm. This
enables the doors to be opened and
shut without being obstructed. To
match the height of the rest of the kitchen, the appliance can be fitted with a
suitable top box .
When installed next to a wall  a distance of at least 40 mm must be maintained on the hinge side between the
wall  and the appliance .
The larger the ventilation gap, the
more economically the compressor
will work.
– A ventilation gap of at least 50 mm
depth must be provided at the back
of the appliance behind the whole
width of the top box for air to circulate.
– The cross-section of the air inlet and
outlet under the ceiling must be at
2
least 300 cm to ensure that air can
circulate without obstruction.
