Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and can normally be
recycled.
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.
Therefore, please do not dispose of
your old appliance with your household
waste.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites. 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.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
It should be unplugged or
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply by a competent person. The
plug must be rendered useless and the
cable cut off directly behind the
appliance or the machine to prevent
misuse.

Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Repairs and installation work by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for unauthorised
work. Installation work and repairs to electrical appliances must only
be carried out by a Miele approved service technician.
~ A damaged appliance is dangerous. Check it for any visible
damage. Never install or attempt to use a damaged 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. 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.
~ Do not connect the machine to the mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket adapter or an extension lead. These do not guarantee
the safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
~ For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used when it has
been built in.
~ If the coffee machine is to be built in above another appliance,
there must be a full-width, closed shelf between them (except in
combination with a built-in plate warmer).
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ This appliance must not be installed and operated in mobile
installations (e.g. on a ship).
~ Only the Miele warming drawers EGW 4000-14/29, EGW 5000-14,
ESW 6x14, 6x29 can be connected to the second connection socket
at the rear of the coffee machine.
~ Only use the coffee machine in rooms where the ambient
temperature is between +10? and +38 °C.
~ Ensure that there is sufficient ventilation around the coffee
machine. The ventilation cut-out area in the furniture unit and the
space underneath the ceiling must amount to at least 200 cm2.
Otherwise condensate may form and the appliance or the furniture
unit may be damaged.
~ If the coffee machine is installed behind a kitchen furniture door,
it may only be used with the furniture door open. Do not close the
furniture door while the coffee machine is in use.
~ To avoid damaging your coffee machine, please ensure the
following conditions for mains water connection are met:
– Do not connect the coffee machine to a warm water connection.
– The non-return valve must be easily accessible when the coffee
machine is built in.
– The protective sleeve of the water inlet hose must not be
damaged or become kinked. This will cause it to leak.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The integrated Waterproof System offers protection from water
damage, provided the following conditions are met:
– The machine is correctly installed (connected to the electricity
supply) and plumbed in.
– The machine is properly maintained and parts are replaced where
it can be seen that this is necessary.
– The tap has been turned off when the appliance is not going to be
used for a longer period of time (e.g. during holidays).
~ The manufacturer's warranty will be invalidated if the appliance is
not repaired by a Miele approved service technician.
~ Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele
Original spare parts. The manufacturer can only guarantee the
safety of the appliance when Miele replacement parts are used.
~ Before any repair work is carried out, the appliance must be
completely disconnected from the electricity supply. The appliance
is only completely isolated from the electricity supply when:
– the mains fuse is disconnected,
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in countries where this is
applicable),
– it is switched off at the wall socket and the plug is withdrawn from
the socket, or it is switched off at the isolator.
~ Never open the outer casing of the machine. Tampering with
electrical connections or components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous to the user and can cause operational faults or
electric shock.
~ Use only Miele Original spare parts. If spare parts or accessories
from other manufacturers are used, the warranty will be invalidated,
and Miele cannot accept liability.

and the milk pipework becomes
blocked.
All external surfaces are susceptible
to scratching. Scratches on glass
surfaces could even cause a
breakage.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can discolour the external
surfaces.
Wipe up any spillages or splashes
of descaling agent immediately.
Avoid the following on all types of
front:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,

pressure.
– The water flow pressure needs to be
between 1 and 10 bar (105 and 106
Pa).
– The stainless steel hose supplied is
1.5 m long. The hose may not be
lengthened as too much water would
then remain in the hose, adversely
affecting the quality of the coffee.
– National and local hygiene
regulations must be complied with.
– A tap must be provided between the
stainless steel hose and the
household water supply to ensure
that the water supply can be cut off if
necessary.
The tap should be easily accessible
after the machine has been built in.
84
Mains water connection
If the stainless steel hose supplied is
damaged, it must only be replaced
with an original Miele replacement
hose, available from Miele or at
www.miele-shop.com (depending
on country). Make sure the hose is
suitable for carrying drinking water.
Connection to the water supply should
be carried out by a qualified plumber
and should incorporate a tap with a 3/4"
thread.
^ Check that the filter/sealing ring is
present. The filter/sealing ring must
be present before connecting the

85
Electrical connection
Danger of injury!
All electrical work should be
undertaken by a suitably qualified
and competent person.
Installation, repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. Miele cannot be held
liable for unauthorised work.
Ensure power is not supplied to the
appliance until after installation or
repair work has been carried out.
The appliance is supplied with a mains
connection cable and plug for
connection to AC 50 Hz, 230 V.
The fuse rating must be at least 10 A.
Connection must only be made via a
suitable switched socket which
complies with national and local safety
regulations.
The socket should be easily accessible.
If the mains socket is not accessible
after the appliance has been built in, a
separator for each terminal must be
present. There must be an all-pole
contact gap of 3 mm in the switch.
The necessary connection information
is given on the data plate inside your
appliance.
Ensure that this data matches the
voltage and frequency of your
household mains supply.
Do not connect the appliance to an
inverter such as those used with an
autonomous energy source e.g. Solar
power. When switched on, peak loads
86
in the system can cause the safety
switch-off mechanism to be triggered.
This can damage the electronic unit.
The machine must not be used with
so-called energy saving devices
either. These reduce the amount of
energy supplied to the machine,
causing it to overheat.
Installation
Building-in and combination options
The appliance is designed to be built into a tall unit.
It can also be combined with other Miele built-in appliances. If the coffee machine
is to be built in above another appliance, there must be a full-width, closed shelf
between them. Exception: When built in above a warming drawer.
You can connect the warming drawer directly to the coffee machine with a special
connection cable (optional accessory). This enables the warming drawer to be
switched on at the same time as the coffee machine.
Only connect a Miele warming drawer to the coffee machine. You can find out
the suitable warming drawers for this coffee machine by contacting Miele.
87
Installation
Ventilation
During installation, ensure there is
sufficient ventilation at the rear of the
appliance so that steam and warm air
are able to escape without hindrance.
To ensure the appliance door is flush
with the furniture front, a seal around
the building-in niche is needed or a
sealing strip must be adhered to the
appliance.
The ventilation cut-out area in the
furniture unit and the space
underneath the ceiling must amount
to at least 200 cm2.
Otherwise condensate may form and
the appliance or the furniture unit may
be damaged.
Installation
Before installation, make sure that
there is no power supply to the
machine. This also applies should it
ever need to be taken out of its
housing unit.
The machine may only be operated
when built-in and in an ambient
temperature range between +10 °C
to +38 °C.
You will need two Allen keys (sizes 3
and 5) for installing the machine.
88
^ If there is not a seal around the
building-in niche, adhere the Miele
sealing strips from the back (see
picture) before installing the coffee
machine.
The sealing strips can be purchased
from Miele.
Installation
Tip: We recommend providing a place
to sit the coffee machine which is the
same height as the building-in niche.
This will make it easier to connect the
machine to the electricity supply.
^ Using the large allen key, unscrew all
four feet out by about 2 mm.
The feet can be unscrewed by up to
approx. 10 mm.
^ Connect the appliance to the water
inlet hose (see "Mains water
connection").
The appliance comes with four M5
socket screws to help you align and
secure it in the building-in niche.
^ Open the appliance door, and
partially tighten the side socket
screws.
^ Carefully turn the lower socket
screws to centre the machine in the
niche.
^ Tighten both upper socket screws by
hand to secure the machine in the
unit. Do not overtighten them.
^ Connect the appliance to the
electricity supply.

into the building-in niche.
Ensure the mains connection cable
doesn't get damaged when pushing
the appliance into the niche.
^ Check the height to make sure the
coffee machine is sitting centrally in
the unit and that it is level. If this is
not the case, realign the 4 feet
underneath the machine using the
large allen key.
89
Installation
Adjusting the door hinges
If the machine door becomes difficult to
open or close after installation, you can
adjust the hinges to realign it:
^ Tighten the screw a to align it flush
