7
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Technical safety
 Installation and repairs may only be carried out by a Miele-authorized service technician. Installation, repairs and other work by unqualified persons can cause considerable danger to users.
 A damaged coffee system could be dangerous. Before building in
the machine, check it for any externally visible damage. Do not use a
damaged machine.
 Before connecting the coffee system, check the voltage and frequency indicated on the data plate against the voltage and frequency of the household electrical supply.
This data must correspond in order to prevent damage to the coffee
system. If in doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
 Be certain your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a
qualified technician. To guarantee the electrical safety of this appliance, continuity must exist between the appliance and an effective
grounding system. It is imperative that this basic safety requirement
be met. If there is any doubt, have the electrical system of the house
checked by a qualified electrician.
 Reliable and safe operation of the coffee system can only be guaranteed if it is connected to the electrical supply.
 Do not connect the machine to the electrical supply using an extension cord or power bar.
 The coffee system may not be used in mobile installations such as
ships.
 For safety reasons, this machine may only be used when it has
been built in.
 If the coffee system is to be built in above another appliance,
there must be a full-width, closed shelf between them.
 Only use the coffee system in rooms where the ambient temperature is between +50°F (10°C) and +100°F (38°C).
8
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 Do not cover or block the aeration and ventilation cross-sections.
Condensation water can damage the coffee system or surrounding
cabinets.
 Ensure that there is sufficient ventilation around the coffee system.
The ventilation gaps in the housing unit and the gap between the top
of the housing unit and the ceiling must be at least 78 3/4" (200 cm2).
Otherwise condensation can build up and damage the machine or
the housing unit.
 If the coffee system is installed behind a cabinet door, it may only
be used with the door open. This will prevent the formation of heat
and humidity and subsequent damage to the appliance and/or housing unit. Do not close the cabinet door while the coffee system is in
use. Ensure the coffee system has cooled down completely before
closing the door.
 Repair work should only be performed by a Miele-authorized service technician. Repairs by unqualified persons can cause considerable danger to users.
 For repairs, the coffee system must be disconnected from the
electrical power supply.
The coffee system is only disconnected from the power supply if
– the circuit breaker has been tripped, or
– the fuse is removed, or
– the power cord is disconnected from the power supply.
Pull the plug, not the cord, to disconnect the appliance from the
power supply.
 Repairs must only be performed by a trained technician in accordance with national and local safety regulations. Repairs and other
work by unauthorized persons could be dangerous and may void the
warranty.
9
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 Defective components should be replaced by Miele original parts
only. Only with original Miele parts can the manufacturer guarantee
the safety of the appliance.
 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 genuine original Miele parts. If parts or accessories from
other manufacturers are used, the warranty may become void.
The use of accessory attachements not recommended by Miele may
result in fire, electric shock or injury to persons.
10
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Proper use
 Danger of burning and scalding from the dispensers.
The liquids and steam dispensed are very hot.
 Please note:
– Keep away from the area underneath the dispensers when hot liquids and steam are being dispensed.
– Do not touch hot components.
– Hot liquid or steam could spatter from the dispensers. Ensure that
the main dispenser is clean and fitted correctly.
– Water in the drip tray can also be very hot. Take care when emptying it.
 Never look directly at the lighting or use optical instruments to
look at it.
 Please note the following regarding water:
– Fill the water tank only with fresh, cold tap water. Hot or warm
water or other liquids could damage the coffee system.
– Change the water every day to prevent a build-up of bacteria.
– Do not use mineral water. Mineral water will cause lime scale deposits to build up in your machine and damage it.
– Do not use water from a reverse osmosis unit in this machine.
This would damage it.
 Only fill the bean container with roasted espresso or coffee beans.
Do not fill the bean container with coffee beans that have been
treated or with ground coffee.
Do not fill liquids in the bean container.
11
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 Do not use green (unroasted) coffee beans or mixtures of coffee
beans which contain green coffee beans. Green coffee beans are
very hard and still contain a certain amount of residual moisture.
These can damage the coffee system grinder as soon as grinding
begins.
 Do not use coffee beans that have been treated with caramel,
sugar or other substances. Sugar will damage the coffee system.
 Only add ground coffee or cleaning tablets to the ground coffee
chute.
 Do not use any caramelized ground coffee. The sugar in the coffee will stick to and block the brew unit of the coffee system. The
cleaning tablets for degreasing the brew unit will not remove this
type of deposit.
 Only use plain milk. Most sugary additives can clog the milk lines.
and damage the machine.
 If using dairy milk make sure that it has been pasteurized.
 Do not place any alcohol mixtures which are alight underneath the
main dispenser. The flames could ignite plastic components and
cause them to melt.
 Do not swing from or hang anything on the machine front when it
is open as this could damage the hinges of the machine.
 The main dispenser connector cap is lubricated with silicone
grease. Take care not to get this on your clothes when removing or
replacing the containers or other components.
 Do not use the coffee system to clean objects.
12
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Cleaning and care
 The coffee system must be disconnected from the electrical supply before cleaning or maintenance.
 Clean the coffee system and the milk flask thoroughly before using for the first time (see "Cleaning and care").
 All parts of the milk system need to be cleaned thoroughly and
regularly.
 Do not use a steam cleaner to clean this machine. Steam could
reach electrical components and cause a short circuit.
 Descale the coffee system regularly depending on the water hardness level in your area. Descale the machine more frequently in areas
with very hard water. Miele cannot be held liable for damage arising
from insufficient descaling, the use of incorrect descaling agent or
the use of descaling agent that is not of the appropriate concentration.
 Degrease the brew unit regularly with Miele cleaning tablets. Depending on the natural oil content of the coffee used, the brew unit
can become blocked quite quickly.
 Rinsing coffee grounds down the drain can cause the sink to clog.
Instead, dispose of your coffee grounds appropriately as biodegradable waste (where facilities exist) or by composting.
13
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
For machines with stainless steel surfaces:
 Do not use sticky notes, transparent adhesive tape, masking tape
or other types of adhesive on stainless steel surfaces. These damage the surface, causing it to lose its dirt repellent protective coating.
 The finish on stainless steel surfaces is susceptible to scratching.
Even magnets can cause scratching.
Preparing your appliance for an extended vacation
 If you elect to turn off the water to your home for an extended period of time, please note that this may not be enough to reduce the
risk of a leak. To be completely safe, you must turn off the water
supply to each individual appliance. This means under the sink for a
dishwasher, at the laundry bib for your washer, etc.

surface, if necessary.
26
Filling the coffee bean container
Fill the coffee bean container with
roasted coffee or espresso beans if you
want to use freshly ground coffee beans
for each cup of espresso or coffee.
Alternatively, you can make coffee or
espresso with ground coffee (see "Making coffee drinks from ground coffee").
Important! Risk of damage to the
grinder.
Only put roasted coffee or espresso
beans in the container. Anything
else, including ground coffee, will
damage the grinder.
Do not pour liquids in the bean container.
Important! Sugar damages the coffee
system.
Do not use coffee beans that have
been treated with sugar, caramel, or
other substances containing sugar in
the coffee bean container.
Do not use green (unroasted) coffee

Coffee the way you like it
Brewing temperature
Pre-brewing ground coffee
The ideal brewing temperature will depend on:
When the pre-brewing function is
turned on, the freshly ground coffee is
first moistened with a little hot water.
Then the remaining water is forced
through the moistened coffee at high
pressure. This helps release the flavor
of the coffee.
– the type of coffee,
– whether an espresso or a coffee is
being prepared, and
– the altitude of the region.
If the coffee system is located at more
than 6562 ft. (2000 meters) above sea
level, the brewing temperature needs to
be set lower due to the change in pressure. This is because the boiling point
for water at a high altitude above sea
level is lower than the boiling point for
water at sea level.
Tip: Not all types of coffee can withstand high temperatures. Certain types
are too delicate - the crema on top
would not be as good and the taste
would be impaired.
You can set pre-brewing for a normal
length of time or an extra long length of
time. Alternatively, you can turn off the
"Pre-brewing" function.
The machine is supplied with the "Prebrewing" function turned off.
 Swipe across the display in the PreBrewing field until the required setting
appears.

Portion size
The flavor of the coffee produced depends not just on the type of coffee
used, but also on the amount of water
used.
You can program the amount of water
to suit the size of your cups and the
type of coffee you are using.
For coffee drinks that use milk you can
also set the amount of milk or milk froth
to be dispensed with these drinks. Additionally, you can set the portion sizes
for hot milk and milk froth alone.
Each type of drink has a maximum portion size that can be programmed into
the machine. The coffee system halts
preparation of the coffee once this portion size has been reached. The maximum possible portion size for this type
of drink is then saved in the machine.
The changed portion size is always
saved in the current User profile. The
name of the current profile appears in
the top left-hand side of the display.
If the water tank becomes empty while

Disposal of packaging material
Disposal of your old appliance
The cardboard box and packing materials protect the appliance during shipping. They have been designed to be
biodegradable and recyclable.
Old electrical and electronic appliances
often still contain valuable materials.
However, they also contain harmful
substances that were essential for the
proper functioning and safe use of the
equipment. Handling these materials
improperly or disposing of them in your
household waste can be harmful to your
health and the environment. Therefore,
please do not dispose of your old appliance with regular household waste.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of children. Return
the packaging to your dealer.
Old appliances may contain materials
that can be recycled. Please contact
your local recycling authority about the
possibility of recycling these materials.
Ensure the appliance presents no danger to children while being stored for
disposal.

Electrical connection
Make sure that the power to the machine is OFF before installing or performing maintenance or repairs. All
electrical work should be performed by
a qualified electrician in strict accordance with national and local safety
regulations. Installation, repairs and
other work by unqualified persons
could be dangerous.
If there is any question concerning the
electrical connection of this appliance
to your power supply, please consult a
licensed electrician or contact Miele’s
Technical Service Department. See

WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
GROUNDED
Verify that the voltage, load and circuit
rating information found on the data
plate match the household electrical
supply. This data must match to prevent damage to the coffee system. If in
doubt, consult a licensed electrician.
The necessary connection information
is given on the data plate inside your

The coffee system comes equipped
with a 6 ft (1.8 m) power cord with a
NEMA 5-15P molded plug for connection to a 120 V, 15 A, 60 Hz power supply.
Do not connect the appliance to a
power inverter or directly to power produced outside of the normal electrical
grid (i.e. direct solar or wind power
source).
Direct connection to such power
sources can cause power surges and
tripped breakers when the appliance is
turned on, and could damage the appliance.
Do not connect the appliance to energy
saving plugs or outlets. The reduction
of power to the appliance caused by
these devices will cause the appliance
to run hot and may damage it and/or
shorten its usable life.

Ventilation
Condensation water can damage the
coffee system or surrounding cabinets.
The specified ventilation cross-sections absolutely must be observed.
Do not cover or block the ventilation
cross-sections.
Clean the ventilation cross-sections
on a regular basis.
Due to the heating of water, water
steam can condense inside the coffee
system and inside the door.
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.
– A ventilation gap of at least 1
5/8" (40 mm) depth must be provided
behind the appliance for air to circulate.
– The ventilation cross-sections in the
plinth, surrounding cabinets and
above the appliance must amount to
at least 78 3/4 square inches
2
(200 cm ) to ensure that air can circulate without obstruction.
Top ventilation cross-section
The ventilation cross section at the top
of the appliance can be constructed in
different ways:
The surrounding cabinets should be designed as follows:
a directly above the coffee system
with a ventilation grille (free airflow of
at least 78 3/4 square inches /
2
200 cm )
b between the surrounding cabinets
and the ceiling
c through a suspended ceiling
– Air intake  occurs via the plinth at
the bottom of the appliance and the
air escapes at the top  at the rear
of the surrounding cabinets.

socket wrenches in sizes 3 and 5.
To ensure the appliance door is flush
with the cabinetry front, a seal around
the building-in niche is needed or a
sealing strip must be adhered to the
coffee system.
Tip: We recommend providing a place
to sit the coffee system which is the
same height as the building-in niche.
This will make it easier to connect the
machine to the electrical supply.

building-in niche, adhere the Miele
sealing strips from the back (see picture) before installing the coffee system.The sealing strips can be purchased from Miele.
 Push the coffee system all the way
into the building-in niche.
 Make sure the coffee system is centered and straight in the building-in
niche. If this is not the case, align the
machine using the four bases.
Sealing strips are available from your
Miele dealer or from Miele.
97
