any danger of burning.
 Danger of suffocation! Ensure that any plastic wrappings, bags,
etc. are disposed of safely and kept out of the reach of children.
6
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Technical safety
 Unauthorized installation, maintenance, and repairs can cause
considerable danger for the user. Installation, maintenance, and repairs must only be carried out by a Miele authorized technician.
 A damaged drawer can be dangerous. Always check for visible
signs of damage. Never use a damaged appliance.
 Pay attention to any damage or cracks to the glass lid or chamber
seal. Damage to the glass lid can cause implosion. Never operate
the drawer if the glass lid and/or the chamber seal is damaged.
 The drawer has an integrated vacuum pump, which contains oil.
To prevent oil from leaking out, the drawer must be transported and
stored in a horizontal position only. Do not tilt the drawer and do not
stand it up on its side.
The manufacturer's warranty will be invalidated if oil has leaked out
of the appliance because it has not been transported or stored correctly.
 Reliable and safe operation of the drawer can only be assured if it
has been connected to the electrical supply.
 Be certain the drawer 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.
 The connection data (voltage and frequency) on the data plate of
the drawer must match the line power in order to avoid the risk of
damage to the drawer. Compare this data before connecting the appliance. If in doubt, consult a suitably qualified electrician.
 Do not connect the drawer to the electrical supply with a power
bar or extension cord. These are a fire hazard and do not guarantee
the required safety of the appliance.
7
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 For safety reasons, the drawer may only be used when it has been
fully installed.
 This drawer may not be used in non-stationary locations (e.g. on a
ship).
 Any contact with live connections or tampering with the electrical
or mechanical components of the drawer will endanger your safety
and may lead to appliance malfunctions.
Do not open the casing of the drawer under any circumstances.
 Do not operate the drawer with wet hands or if you are in contact
with water.
 Any repairs not performed by a Miele authorized service technician will void the warranty.
 Defective components should be replaced by Miele original parts
only. Only with these parts can the manufacturer guarantee the
safety of the appliance.
 If the plug has been removed or the power cord is not supplied
with a plug, the drawer must be connected to the power supply by a
suitably qualified electrician.
 If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced with a special
power cord (see “Electrical connection”).
 If power is interrupted during vacuum-sealing, the vacuum in the
chamber is retained and the glass lid cannot be opened. Do not under any circumstances try to force the glass lid open or use tools to
open it. You will be able to open the lid when power has been restored.
8
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 The drawer must be completely disconnected from the power
supply during installation, maintenance and repair work. This can be
ensured as follows:
– The circuit breaker has tripped, or
– The fuse of the electrical installation is completely removed, or
– The plug (if present) is removed from the outlet. In the process,
pull the plug not the cord.
 If the drawer is installed behind a cabinet panel (e.g., a door), ensure that the door is never closed while the drawer is in use. Heat
and moisture can build up behind a closed cabinet panel and cause
subsequent damage to the drawer, the housing unit, and the floor.
Do not close the door until the sealing bar and the drawer have
cooled down completely.
9
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Correct use
 Danger of burning. The sealing bar becomes hot during operation.
The weld seam of the vacuum-sealing bag is also heated to a very
high temperature during the sealing process. Do not touch the sealing bar or the seam immediately after the vacuum-sealing process.
 Fire hazard. Do not store any easily flammable substances and
materials in the vicinity of the drawer.
 The maximum load capacity of the telescopic drawer rails is
55 lbs (15 kg). If you overload the drawer or lean/stand on it when it
is open, you will damage the rails.
 Damage to the glass lid can cause implosion. Do not place any
objects on the glass lid. Ensure that the glass lid cannot sustain
damage from falling objects.
 Do not use the drawer or the glass lid as a work surface, a chopping surface, or a shelf.
 The drawer must be installed so that it can be pulled out completely and there is sufficient room to open the glass lid. This ensures that you can see into the vacuum chamber and avoid touching
the sealing bar and weld seam and burning yourself.
 When vacuuming liquids, bubbles can form at lower temperatures
which will cause an impression of boiling. Steam can escape, which
can cause the drawer to malfunction.
For this reason, only vacuum-seal food (liquid or solid) when it has
cooled. Follow the vacuuming process carefully and seal the bag
early if necessary.
 If liquid gets into the drawer and the vacuum pump air intake
valve, this can result in damage to the vacuum pump.
 Moisture in food or drinks can cause corrosion damage in the
drawer. Do not use the drawer to store food or drinks.
 Miele does not permit vacuum-sealing of glass containers.
10
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 Never insert the tubes attached to the drawer into any body orifices.
Cleaning and maintenance
 Do not use a steam cleaner to clean the drawer.
The steam may reach electrical components and cause a short circuit.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS AND REVIEW THEM PERIODICALLY
11

Operation
Suitable vacuum bags
Only vacuum bags meeting the following material requirements are permitted
for use:
Important information on use
Miele does not permit vacuum-sealing of glass containers.
– Suitable for use with food
– Only vacuum-seal food.
– Suitable for freezing and cooking
– Only use food that is fresh and in
good condition.
– Suitable for storing and sous-vide
cooking of liquid and solid food
– Maximum size:
9 ⁷/₁₆" x 13 ³/₄" (240 x 350 mm)
(tubular bags)/
9 ³/₄" x 13 ³/₄" (250 x 350 mm)
(sealed edge bags)
– Properties: preferably smooth
– Made from PA/PE, not printed on the
inside
– Thickness: 90 µm, typical
– Suitable for vacuum-sealing
<10 mBar
– Suitable for hot-foil sealing
– No migration of hazardous materials
or chemicals, e.g., plasticizers, into
the food being vacuum-sealed
Miele does not permit the use of vacuum bags inside microwaves.
– Ensure hygienic conditions and that
food has not been out of the refrigerator too long.
– Only vacuum-seal food in suitable
vacuum bags or in vacuum-proof external containers.
– Only vacuum seal food that has
cooled.
– Allow pre-cooked and broiled food to
cool down at least to room temperature (approx. 68°F (20°C)) before vacuum-sealing it.
Food that is not normally stored in
the refrigerator, such as dried pasta
or oatmeal, can also be vacuumsealed at room temperature.
– If rinsing food with cold water, dry it
before vacuum-sealing to prevent
water from collecting in the vacuum
bag or container.
– Select a suitable bag size for the size
of the food. If the vacuum bag is too
big, too much air can remain inside.
The bag can be cut to fit the size of
the food.
– If you want to vacuum-seal several
types of food in one bag, place the
food evenly side-by-side in the bag.
17
Operation
– Fill the vacuum bag to a maximum of
²/₃ with solid food or ¹/₃ with liquid.
– For a perfect weld seam, make sure
that the edge of the bag is dry and
grease-free in the area of the seam.
– Position the open edge of the bag
parallel to the sealing bar so that the
edge protrudes over the sealing bar
by approx. ³/₄" (2 cm).
– Take care not to cover the vacuum
pump air intake valve with the bag.
– Vacuum bags are for single use only.
– Place food that is suitable for cooling
in the refrigerator or freezer after vacuum-sealing it.
18
Tips
– Freeze liquids before vacuum-sealing
them. You can then fill the bags ²/₃
full.
– Fold the edges of the vacuum-sealing
bag outward for filling. This will give
you clean, perfect weld seams.
– To prevent small bags from slipping
down into the vacuum chamber, a
chopping board can be placed in the
bottom of the chamber.
– If you are unsure whether food such
as berries or crisps will lose its shape
during vacuum-sealing, start with the
lowest vacuum-sealing level.

Operation
Using the sealing levels
There are 3 levels for sealing vacuum bags.
The choice of sealing level depends on the material thickness of the bag: the
thicker the bag, the higher the sealing level.
Tip: The sealing bar will get progressively hotter when carrying out a number of
consecutive vacuuming processes. You can use a lower sealing level after sealing
a few bags.
20
Operation
 Risk of injury!
Vacuuming and sealing bags
Damage to the glass lid can cause
implosion.
Do not under any circumstances use

27
Cleaning and care
Completing a drying cycle
When food is vacuumed, moisture gets
into the oil circulation system in the
vacuum pump. To remove the moisture,
it is necessary to run a drying cycle after a particular operating period.
The  sensor on the control panel of
the drawer lights up yellow when a drying cycle needs to be carried out. You
can still run another 10 vacuuming processes after it lights up for the first time.
After that, the  sensor lights up red
and a drying cycle must be carried out.
The drawer will lock after the last remaining use and cannot be used again
until drying has been carried out.
We recommend carrying out a drying
cycle before the drawer locks out.
The whole drying cycle lasts for a maximum of 20 minutes.
28
When carrying out the drying cycle,
the vacuum chamber must be empty
and free from liquid residues.
Clean and dry the vacuum chamber
as necessary.
 Touch the  sensor.
 Close the glass lid.
The drying cycle starts. The  sensor
will flash yellow throughout the entire
process.
You can cancel the drying cycle with
the  sensor. If a drying cycle is
canceled, it must be repeated after the
remaining vacuuming processes have
elapsed or when the drawer is
switched on again.
When the drying cycle has finished, a
buzzer will sound and the  sensor
goes out. You can now use the drawer
again as usual.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS - INSTALLATION
 WARNING - Read all instructions before installation or
use of the drawer to prevent
injury and machine damage.
 Before connecting the drawer
to the line power supply, ensure
that the connection data on the
data plate (voltage and frequency) match the line power.
This data must correspond in order to avoid the risk of damage
to the drawer. Consult a qualified
electrician if in any doubt.
 The electrical outlet must be
easily accessible after the installation of the drawer.
 The drawer may only be built
in combination with those appliances specified by Miele as being suitable. Miele cannot guarantee trouble-free operation if the
appliance is operated in combination with appliances other than
those quoted by Miele as being
suitable.
 The base on which the drawer
and the combination appliance
are fitted must be fixed in place
and must support the weight of
both appliances.
34
 When installing the combination appliance, it is essential to
follow the instructions given in
the operating and installation instructions supplied with it.
 The drawer must be installed
in such a way that
– you can see into the vacuum
chamber. This helps to avoid
scalding and burns from
touching the hot sealing bar or
weld seam.
– there is enough space for the
drawer to be pulled out fully
and for opening the glass lid.
Instructions for installation
When integrating the drawer with a
combination appliance, the combination appliance is placed on top of the
drawer without the need for an interim
shelf.
All dimensions in this instruction booklet are given in mm and inches.
Note to the installer:
Please leave these instructions with the
consumer of the appliance for the local
building inspectors use.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

Installation
 Do not damage the drawer!
The drawer has an integrated vacuum pump, which contains oil.
To prevent oil from leaking out, the
drawer must be transported and
stored in a horizontal position only.
Do not tilt the drawer and do not
stand it up on its side.
Fitting the air filter and removing the
safety screws
Preparing the drawer
For safe transportation, the vacuum
pump is provided with a transit device
which must be removed before installation. The air filter supplied must be fitted in place of the transit device.
There are also 2 safety screws on the
back of the drawer to prevent the
drawer from being opened unintentionally during transportation and when it is
being removed from the packaging.
 Slide the cover to the right and remove it.
 Warning!
Fit the air filter before integrating the
drawer and remove the safety
screws at the back.
Otherwise, the drawer cannot be operated and may have to be taken out
of the housing unit.
Keep the transit device and safety
screws for any future transportation.
The transit device can be fixed to the
back of the drawer.
40
 Pull the red transit device  out, e.g.,
with universal pliers.
Installation
 Screw the air filter  onto the vacuum pump using a screwdriver.
 Remove the safety screws  from
the back of the drawer.
 Do not damage the drawer!
Remove the air filter  before transporting the drawer and plug the vacuum pump with the transit device .
To remove the air filter and fit the transit
device, carry out these steps in reverse
order.
 Fix the transit device  to the back
of the drawer.
 Slide the cover  over the opening to
close it.
41
Installation
Integrating the drawer
Fitting the anti-tipping mechanism
 Risk of injury!
The drawer is heavy and will tip forwards when open.
Installation must be carried out by
two people.
Keep the drawer closed until the
anti-tipping mechanism supplied has
been fitted to the side walls of the
housing unit.
Check that the base that the drawer
will sit on is clean and level (use a
spirit level). This is important for the
appliance to function correctly.
 Measure the distance to the right and
left-hand side walls of the housing
(see illustration).
 Mark the uppermost position in the
long slot of the anti-tipping mechanism . Make sure that the anti-tipping mechanism is flush with the
base of the housing unit.
 Secure the anti-tipping mechanism to
the right and left-hand side walls of
the housing unit with the 4 screws
supplied ³/₁₆" x ⁵/₈" (4 x 16 mm).
42
Installation
Integrating and connecting the
drawer
 Check that the air filter is fitted and
the safety screws have been removed
from the back of the drawer (see
“Preparing the drawer”).
 Connect the line power connection
cord to the drawer.
 Slide the closed drawer into the
housing unit. When doing so make
sure that the line power cord does
not get trapped or damaged.
When the drawer is first connected, or
after an interruption of the power supply, all of the sensors and indicators in
the display will light up for approx.
10 seconds for testing (initialization).
As soon as they go out, the drawer is
ready for use.
 Integrate the combination appliance
in accordance with the operating and
installation instructions supplied with
it.
 Align the drawer at right angles.
 Open the drawer and secure it to the
right and left-hand side walls of the
housing unit with the 2 wood screws
supplied ¹/₈" x 1" (3.5 x 25 mm).
 Remove the 4 foam adhesive labels
from the back of the front panel on
the right and left-hand sides.
 Connect the drawer to the line power
supply.
43
Installation
Aligning the front of the drawer
After integrating the combination appliance, it may be necessary under certain
circumstances to align the front of the
drawer and adjust the gap between the
drawer and the combination appliance.
To help you do this, there are 2 screws
behind the drawer front with which the
front is fixed to the drawer housing.
 Open the drawer.
 Loosen fixing screws  on the right
and left of the drawer housing.
 Danger of injury.
When the fixing screws are removed,
the drawer front is only hooked onto
the housing and can easily fall off.
Do not remove the fixing screws
completely.
 Push the drawer up or down a little to
correct the alignment and the gap.
 Tighten up the fixing screws.
44
Electrical connection
 ATTENTION:
Installer:
Before installation or servicing, disconnect the power supply by either
removing the fuse, manually “tripping” the circuit breaker or unplugging the appliance. Pull the plug not
the cord.
 Please leave these instructions with
the customer.
Repairs and service by unqualified
persons could be dangerous and the
manufacturer will not be held responsible.
Installation work and repairs should
only be performed by a qualified
technician in accordance with all applicable codes and standards. Installation, repair, and maintenance work
should only be performed by a
Miele-authorized service technician.
Connection
 Make sure that the connection data
on the data plate (voltage, frequency,
and fuse rating) matches that of your
electrical supply.
Connection data
The drawer is ready for connection and
equipped with a 7' 2" (2,200 mm) power
cord with a plug.
120 V / 15 A / 60 Hz
Make sure that the connecting socket is
accessible after the installation of the
drawer.
The voltage and frequency listed on
the rating label must correspond with
the household electrical supply to
prevent appliance damage.
Check these data before connection.
Consult an electrician if in doubt.
When another appliance is installed
in combination with the drawer to the
same circuit, operating both appliances at the same time may cause
an overload.
If in doubt consult a qualified electrician.
45
Electrical connection
Disconnecting from the power
supply
 Danger of electric shock.
After disconnection, ensure the appliance cannot be switched back on
by mistake.
The drawer must be completely disconnected from the power supply during
installation, maintenance and repair
work. This can be ensured as follows:
– The circuit breaker has tripped, or
– The fuse of the electrical installation
is completely removed, or
– The plug (if present) is removed from
the outlet. In the process, pull the
plug not the cord.
