Warning and Safety instructions

Technical safety

 The refrigerant circuit has been checked for leaks. The refrigeration appliance complies with all current local and national safety requirements.

 This refrigeration 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 has a lower greenhouse effect than some other refrigerants.

The use of this coolant, however, leads 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. Unfortunately, this cannot be avoided, but it does not affect the performance of the refrigeration appliance.

When transporting and installing the refrigeration appliance, ensure that no parts of the cooling circuit are damaged. Leaking refrigerant can damage the eyes.

In the event of any damage:

– avoid any flames or anything which creates a spark

– disconnect the refrigeration appliance from the mains electricity supply

– ventilate the room where the appliance is located for several minutes, and

– call Miele.

 The more coolant there is in a refrigeration appliance, the larger the room should be in which it is installed. In the event of a leakage, if the appliance is in a small room, there is a danger of combustible gases building up. For every 11 g of coolant at least 1 m 3 of room space is required. The amount of coolant in the appliance is stated on a data plate inside the appliance.

7

Warning and Safety instructions

 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 connection cable is faulty, it must only be replaced by a

Miele approved service technician in order to avoid a hazard.

 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).

 If moisture gets into electrical components or into the mains connection cable, it could cause a short circuit. Therefore, do not operate this refrigeration appliance in areas which are exposed to moisture (e.g in a garage or laundry).

 This appliance must not be installed and operated in mobile installations (e.g. on a ship).

 Do not use a damaged appliance. It could be dangerous. Check the appliance for visible signs of damage.

 For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used when it has been fully installed.

 The appliance must be disconnected from the power supply during installation, maintenance and repair work, and during installation work on the mains water connection. It is only completely isolated from the power supply when:

8

– the mains circuit breaker is switched off, or

Warning and Safety instructions

– the screw-out fuse is removed (in countries where this is applicable), or

– it is switched off at the wall socket and the plug is withdrawn from the socket.

 Unauthorised installation, maintenance and repairs, or a faulty mains water connection can result in considerable danger for the user.

Maintenance and repairs, installation work on the mains water connection, and all repairs on the ice/water outlet must only be carried out by a Miele authorised technician.

 The ice cube maker must only be connected to a cold water supply.

 Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by a faulty water connection.

 The manufacturer's warranty will be invalidated if the appliance is not repaired by a Miele authorised technician.

 Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele spare parts. The manufacturer can only guarantee the safety of the appliance when Miele replacement parts are used.

 In areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the appliance and its surroundings clean at all times. Any damage caused by cockroaches or other vermin will not be covered by the warranty.

9

Warning and Safety instructions

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, with the result that it cannot maintain the required temperature.

 To ensure proper air flow in and out of the appliance, the ventilation gaps in the appliance and built-in structure must not be covered or blocked in any way. This would also increase the energy consumption and could cause damage to the appliance.

 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. Make sure that no fat or oil leaks onto the plastic parts of the appliance.

 Risk of fire and explosion! Do not store any explosive materials or products containing flammable propellants (e.g. spray cans) in the refrigeration appliance. Electrical components can cause flammable mixes of gases to ignite.

 Danger of explosion! 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, causing injury or damage.

10

Warning and Safety instructions

 Danger of injury! 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 injury! 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 zone. The very low temperature of the frozen goods 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 refrozen after it has been cooked.

 Food stored for too long may present a 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 the food manufacturer's packaging regarding storage conditions and use-by dates.

 Use only genuine original Miele spare parts. If spare parts or accessories from other manufacturers are used, the warranty will be invalidated, and Miele cannot accept liability.

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 this appliance.

Steam could reach the 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, or accelerate the defrosting process,

– separate frozen foods and remove ice trays.

11

Warning and Safety instructions

 Never 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.

 Rinse the ice cube maker and the water pipes:

– before using for the first time,

– if the ice cube maker has not been used for a long time,

– regularly if the ice cube maker is constantly on (at least once a month) to remove ice residues and prevent the water pipes from becoming blocked, and

– before switching off the ice cube maker for a long period of time.

Transport

 To avoid damage to the appliance, always transport it upright and in its packaging.

 Risk of injury and damage! The appliance is very heavy and must be transported by two people.

12

Warning and Safety instructions

Disposal of your old appliance

 If your old appliance has a door lock, destroy it. This way you will prevent the risk of playing children 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 refrigerant channels in the condenser,

– bending any pipework, or

– scratching the surface coating.

Symbol on the compressor (depending on model)

This information is only relevant for recycling. There is no risk during normal operation.

 The oil in the compressor can be fatal if swallowed or if it penetrates the airways.

13

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.

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!

Disposing of your old appliance

Electronic and electrical appliances contain many valuable materials. They also contain certain materials, compounds and components which were essential for their correct functioning and safety. These could be hazardous to human health and to the environment if disposed of with general 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 Miele. You are also responsible 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 the appliance before or during transportation to an authorised collection depot.

This is to ensure that refrigerant in the pipework and oil in the compressor are contained and will not leak out 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.

It is also advisable to carry out the last instruction if you are switching the refrigerator section off only for a longer period of time.

Switching on and off

25

The correct temperature

It is very important to set the correct temperature for storing food in the appliance. Bacteria will cause food which is not stored at the correct temperature to deteriorate rapidly.

Temperature influences the growth rate of these microorganisms. 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 is stored in it.

– The warmer the food is which is being put into it.

– The higher the ambient temperature of the refrigeration appliance. The appliance is designed for use within specific ambient temperatures

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

... in the refrigerator and in the

PerfectFresh Pro zone

We recommend a temperature of 4 °C in the refrigerator.

The temperature in the PerfectFresh Pro zone is controlled automatically and maintained at 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 is chilled to about the same degree.

... in the freezer zone

To freeze fresh food and to store frozen food for long periods, 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 bacteria become active in the food again so it cannot be kept as long. For this reason, partially defrosted or defrosted food must not be refrozen.

Food may be refrozen once it has been cooked, as the high temperatures achieved when cooking destroy most bacteria.

26

The correct temperature

Temperature display

In normal operation the temperature display shows the current mean refrigerator section temperature and the current temperature in the warmest part of the freezer section .

If the temperature in the freezer section is not within the normal temperature display range, dashes will flash in the display.

Depending on the room temperature and the temperature setting, it can take several hours until the selected temperature is reached and displayed steadily.

 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.

Setting the temperature in the refrigerator/freezer section

The temperatures for the refrigerator section and the freezer section are set separately.

 Select the refrigerator or the freezer section.

 Use the two sensors underneath the display to set the temperature.

By touching the sensor

– the temperature will get colder

– the temperature will get warmer.

While the temperature is being set, the temperature value will flash.

27

The correct temperature

The following information appears in the display while the sensors are being touched:

– When first tapped: The last temperature selected flashes.

– Each subsequent touch of a sensor:

The temperature is adjusted in 1 °C steps.

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

Approximately 5 seconds after you release the sensor, the actual temperature in the appliance will be displayed.

Or

 Touch OK to confirm your selection.

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 appliance 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.

Temperature range

The temperature can be adjusted:

– in the refrigerator section from 3 °C to

9 °C.

– in the freezer section from -15 °C to

-26 °C.

28

The correct temperature

Adjusting the temperature in the PerfectFresh Pro zone

In the PerfectFresh Pro zone, the temperature is automatically maintained between 0 and 3 °C. However, if you would like it to be warmer or colder, e.g.

when storing fish, you can adjust the temperature slightly.

Using the refrigerator efficiently

Different storage zones

Due to the natural air circulation there are different temperature zones in the refrigerator.

Cold, heavy air sinks to the lowest section of the appliance. Make use of the different zones when placing food in the appliance.

Useful tip: To allow air to circulate efficiently, do not pack food too closely together in the refrigerator.

If there is insufficient air circulation, the cooling performance will decrease and energy consumption will increase.

Do not cover the fan in the rear wall of the appliance.

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

– dishes or baked goods containing eggs or cream

– fresh dough, cake mixtures, pizza or quiche dough

– soft cheese and other dairy products

– pre-packed vegetables

– other fresh food with a label stating it should be kept at a temperature of approx. 4 °C.

Useful tip: Do not store food in such a way that it touches the rear wall of the refrigerator. It may freeze to the back wall.

This appliance has DynaCool, which helps to keep an even temperature when the fan is running. When

DynaCool is operating, the difference between the various zones is less pronounced.

Warmest area

The warmest area is located in the top section of the main storage area and the door. Use this for storing butter so that it remains spreadable and for cheese so that it retains its flavour.

Coldest area

The coldest area in the refrigerator is directly above the PerfectFresh Pro zone dividing plate and at the back of

39

Using the refrigerator efficiently

Food which is not suitable for storage in the refrigerator

Not all food is suitable for refrigeration at temperatures below 5 °C because it is sensitive to cold. Depending on the type of food, the appearance, consistency, flavour and/or vitamin content may be altered if stored at too cold a temperature.

Foods which are sensitive to cold include:

– Pineapples, avocados, bananas, pomegranates, mangoes, melons, papayas, passionfruit, citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges, mandarines, grapefruits

– Fruit which is not yet ripe

– Eggplants, cucumbers, potatoes, capsicums, tomatoes, zucchini

– Hard cheeses, e.g. Parmesan, mountain cheese

Notes on buying food

The freshness of the food when it is first placed in the appliance is the most important factor for how long it stays fresh. Freshness is essential for a long shelf life.

Take into account the use-by date and the correct storage temperature.

Time out of the refrigerator, e.g.

transporting food in a warm car, should be kept to a minimum.

Useful tip: Take a cooling bag when shopping, and load food in the appliance as soon as possible.

Storing food correctly

Ensure that food stored in the refrigerator section is in packaging or covered properly (some exceptions apply in the PerfectFresh Pro zone).

This will prevent food smells from affecting other foods, food from drying out, and also any cross-contamination of bacteria. This is especially important when storing meat products.

By ensuring that the temperature settings are correct and by taking appropriate hygiene measures, you can prolong the storage life of your food considerably.

40

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 controlled automatically and maintained at 0 to 3 °C. While lower than the temperature in a conventional 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.

In addition, the humidity level in the

PerfectFresh Pro zone can be regulated to suit the food being stored. Food retains its own moisture if stored at a higher humidity and does not dry out as quickly. This allows it to stay crisp and fresh for longer.

Remember that the freshness of the food when first placed in the appliance is the most important factor in determining how long 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 compartments:

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 in the upper dry compartment is between 0 and 3 °C 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 lower humidity controlled compartment has a temperature of

0 °C to 3 °C, and the humidity level is increased depending on the position of the slide control:  not increased, or  /  increased. With increased humidity use this compartement to store fruit and vegetables.

Each type of food has its own characteristics and requires certain storage conditions.

41

Storing food in the PerfectFresh Pro zone

Dry compartment 

The dry compartment is suitable for storing perishable foods such as:

– Fresh fish, shellfish and crustaceans

– Meat, poultry, sausages

– Deli salads

– Dairy products such as yoghurt, cheese, cream, quark etc.

– Any type of food can in fact be stored in this compartment, as long as it is packaged.

The most important aspect of the dry compartment is its low temperature.

The humidity level is similar to that in a conventional refrigerator.

Please note that foods rich in protein deteriorate faster than others.

Shellfish, for example, deteriorates faster than fish, and fish deteriorates faster than meat.

For hygiene reasons always keep these foods covered or wrapped .

Humidity controlled compartment   ,   /  

Humidity level not increased  

At the  setting the humidity controlled compartment becomes a dry compartment - the slide control opens the vents in the compartment so that moisture can escape (see “Dry compartment  ”).

Increased humidity   / 

With the slide control 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 slide control partially closes the vents in the compartment so that some of the moisture present is retained.

– To store only a small quantity of fruit and vegetables in the humidity controlled compartment, select the

  setting - the slide control closes the vents in the compartment completely so that all of the moisture present is retained.

Useful 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 in the humidity controlled compartment is determined by the type and quantity of food being stored when it is not packaged.

42

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.

Wipe off any condensate with a cloth.

Regulating the humidity level in the humidity controlled compartment

The slide control is used to regulate the amount of moisture in the humidity controlled compartment with the settings  ,  and  .

Note for test institutes:

When measuring the energy consumption in accordance with the standard, the slide control in the humidity controlled compartment should be set to the   setting

(“humidity not increased”).

 Push the slide control all the way to the back and then slowly release it.

The slide control will automatically click into the  position.

 To select setting  or  , push the slide control to the back again and release it so that it clicks into position

 or  .

43

Storing food in the PerfectFresh Pro zone

If you are not satisfied with your stored food (for example the food wilts or becomes limp after only a short storage time), check the following:

 Only place fresh food in the appliance as the initial condition of the food is crucial to maintaining freshness.

 Clean the PerfectFresh Pro compartments before storing food in them.

 Dry the surface of very moist food before placing it in the refrigerator.

 Do not store any food in the

PerfectFresh Pro zone which is sensitive to cold (see “Food which is not suitable for storage in the refrigerator section”).

 For the type of food being stored, select the correct PerfectFresh Pro compartment and the appropriate position of the slide control for the humidity controlled compartment (low or high humidity).

 An increased humidity level  /  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 gathered in the compartment at the  setting 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 excess moisture can drain away.

If the humidity level is too low despite 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 first by changing the temperature by

1 or 2 °C. See “Adjusting the temperature in the PerfectFresh Pro zone”. If ice crystals start to form on the floor of the PerfectFresh Pro compartments, increase the temperature as otherwise the cold temperature will damage the food.

44

Adjusting the door shelf/bottle shelf

Only move door/bottle shelves when they are empty.

 Push the door/bottle shelf upwards, then remove it by pulling it forwards.

 Replace the shelf at the required height. Ensure that it is securely pushed back into position.

When you are storing very strong smelling food (e.g. very ripe cheese):

– Place the holder with the charcoal filters on the shelf where this food is kept.

– Change the charcoal filters sooner if necessary.

– Use more charcoal filters (with holders) in the appliance (see

“Accessories - Optional accessories”).

The holder for the charcoal filters sits on the protective strip at the back of the shelf.

 To move the charcoal filters, pull the holder upwards to remove it from the protective strip.

 Refit it on the protective strip of the shelf you wish to use it on.

47

Freezing and storing food

Freezing fresh food

Fresh food should be frozen as quickly as possible so that the nutritional value of the food, its vitamin content, appearance and flavour are maintained.

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. In practice this means that the food loses more moisture. You can see this in the large amount of water that collects around the food when it defrosts.

If food is frozen quickly, the cells have less time to lose moisture, so they shrink less. As there is much less moisture loss, it is easier for the food to reabsorb it during defrosting, and very little water collects around the defrosted food.

Storing frozen food

Never refreeze partially or fully defrosted food. Defrosted food may only be refrozen after it has been cooked.

When buying frozen food to store in your freezer, make sure to check:

– that the packaging is not damaged

– the use-by date and

– the temperature at which the frozen food is being stored at the store.

The length of time food 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 cooler bag or cool box to transport it.

 Store it in the freezer as soon as possible after returning home.

48

Freezing and storing food

Home freezing

Only freeze food which is fresh and in good condition.

Tips 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 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.

– To retain colour, taste and vitamin C, vegetables should be blanched before freezing. To blanch, immerse the trimmed and washed vegetables in boiling water for 2-3 minutes.

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.

– Separate chops, steaks, cutlets, schnitzel or rolled meat with a sheet of plastic freezer film. This prevents them from freezing together in a block.

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

Only season cooked food lightly before freezing. The taste or intensity of some spices alters when frozen.

– Allow hot foods and drinks to cool down before placing them in the freezer. Placing hot foods or drinks in the freezer causes food that is already frozen to partially thaw and increases energy consumption.

Packaging food for freezing

 Freeze food in portions.

Suitable packing material

– Plastic cling wrap

– Tubular polyethylene film

– Aluminum foil

– Freezer containers and bags

Unsuitable packing material

– Wrapping paper

– Grease-proof paper

– Cellophane

– Bin bags

– Plastic shopping bags

 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

Useful tip: Freezer bags and tubular polyethylene film may also be sealed using home heat sealing kits.

 Label the packaging with the contents and the date of freezing.

49

Freezing and storing food

Before placing food in the freezer

 When freezing more than 2 kg of fresh food, switch on the SuperFeeze function for some time before placing food in the freezer (see “Using

SuperCool and SuperFreeze”). This helps food which is already stored in the freezer to remain frozen.

Placing food in the freezer

 Risk of damage due to heavy loads.

Loading food which is too heavy can cause damage to the freezer drawers/glass plates.

Do not exceed the maximum load:

– freezer drawer = 25 kg

– glass plate = 35 kg

– Freezing the maximum amount of food

If the ventilation gaps are blocked the cooling performance will decrease and energy consumption will increase.

When placing food in the freezer, make sure that the ventilation gaps are not blocked.

Please note that when removing the drawers, the lowest freezer drawer must always remain in the appliance.

 Remove the upper freezer drawers.

 Place the food flat on the upper glass plates so that it freezes through to the core as quickly as possible.

After the initial freezing process:

 Place the frozen food in the freezer drawer and push it back in.

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

Freeze small items 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.

50

Storage time for frozen food

The storage life of food varies greatly, even when a constant temperature of

-18 °C is maintained. Even in frozen products, degradation processes take place, only at a much slower rate. For example, fat can become rancid from contact with oxygen in the air. Lean meat can therefore be stored approximately twice as long as fatty meat.

The storage times quoted are guide values for the storage life of different food groups in the freezer.

Defrosting frozen food

Never refreeze partially or fully defrosted food. Defrosted food may only be refrozen after it has been cooked.

Frozen food can be defrosted in different ways:

– 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 defrosted fish or meat can be placed directly into a hot frying pan.

Thicker pieces of meat and fish (e.g.

minced beef, chicken, fish fillet) should not come into contact with other food when defrosting. Collect the defrosting liquid and then pour it away, making sure you wash the container it was in, the sink and your hands.

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.

51

Freezing and storing food

Cooling drinks quickly

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 and damage.

Adjusting the interior fittings

Removing the drawers and glass plates from the freezer

The drawers can be removed for filling, emptying or cleaning purposes.

You can also use the space in the freezer 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.

 Pull out the drawers as far as they will go, and then lift them up and out.

 Lift the glass plate slightly, pull it forwards and out.

Using accessories

Cool pack

The cool pack prevents the temperature in the freezer rising too quickly in the event of a power cut, thus extending the time for which food can be stored without power to the appliance.

 Place the cool pack in the top drawer of the freezer section.

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

In the event of a power cut:

 Place the cool pack directly on top of the frozen food in the front of the top drawer so that the food will be kept cold for as long as possible.

Useful 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.

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

Automatic defrosting

Refrigerator and PerfectFresh

Pro zone

The refrigerator and the PerfectFresh

Pro zone defrost automatically.

Condensate and frost can build up on the back wall of the PerfectFresh Pro zone while the compressor is running.

You do not need to remove this, as it will defrost and evaporate automatically with the warmth generated by the appliance.

The condensate is drained away through a channel and drain hole, then fed into an evaporation system at the back of the appliance.

Keep the condensate channel and drain hole clean to enable this.

Condensate must be able to drain away unhindered at all times.

Freezer zone

The appliance is equipped with a

“NoFrost” system. The freezer defrosts automatically.

Each appliance must be installed in its own housing unit.

Please contact Miele for information on which combinations are suitable for your appliance.

 Risk of injury and damage!

This appliance must be built in, otherwise it could tip over. To avoid a hazard, it must be fixed in accordance with the instructions.

Keep the appliance door(s) shut until the appliance has been built in and secured in its housing in accordance with these operating and installation instructions.

 Fire risk and danger of damage!

This refrigeration appliance must not be installed underneath a cooktop.

Location

This appliance should be installed in a dry, well-ventilated room.

When deciding where to install your refrigerator please bear in mind that it will use more energy if installed near a heater, cooktop or other appliance that gives off heat. Direct sunlight should also be avoided.

The higher the room temperature, the longer the compressor will run and the higher the energy consumption will be.

When installing the appliance, please note:

– The mains socket must not be located directly behind the appliance and must be easily accessible.

– The plug and cable must not touch the rear of the appliance as they could be damaged by vibrations from the appliance.

– Nor should other appliances be plugged into a socket located directly behind this appliance.

81

*INSTALLATION*

Installation

 Risk of damage due to high humidity.

In environments with high humidity, condensation can build up on external appliance panels, which can cause corrosion.

Install the refrigeration appliance in a dry and/or air-conditioned room with sufficient ventilation.

After installation, make sure that the appliance doors close properly, the ventilation gaps are not covered and that the appliance has been installed in accordance with these operating and installation instructions.

Ventilation

 If the required ventilation gaps are not adhered to, the compressor will switch on more often and run for longer.

This will result in increased energy consumption and a higher operating temperature of the compressor. This, in turn, may cause damage to the compressor.

It is essential to observe the required ventilation gaps.

Climate range

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

Air at the back of the appliance gets warm. The appliance housing unit must therefore be constructed to allow sufficient space for ventilation (see

“Building-in dimensions”).

+16 to +43 °C

Operating in a room which is too cold will result in the compressor switching off for too long, causing the internal temperature in the appliance to rise with the risk of food deteriorating and going off.

– Air intake  occurs via the plinth at the bottom of the appliance and the air escapes at the top  at the back of the housing unit.

– A ventilation gap of at least 40 mm depth must be allowed for behind the appliance for air to circulate.

82

*INSTALLATION*

Installation

– The ventilation gaps in the plinth, housing unit and above the appliance must amount to a free airflow of at least 200 cm² to ensure that air can circulate without hindrance.

If ventilation grilles are to be inserted into the ventilation gaps, the ventilation gaps must be larger than

200 cm². The unobstructed airflow of

200 cm² is calculated by adding up the total area of ventilation openings in the grilles.

– Important! The larger the ventilation gaps, the less energy the appliance will use.

The air inlet and outlet must not be covered or blocked in any way. They must also be cleaned on a regular basis to remove dust.

Top ventilation cross-section

The top ventilation cross-section can be achieved in various ways: a directly above the appliance with a ventilation grille (free airflow of at least 200 cm²) b between the kitchen furniture and the ceiling c in a suspended ceiling
