Caring for the environment

Disposing of the packaging materials

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.

Disposing of your old appliance

Electrical and electronic appliances often contain valuable materials. They also 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. Please do not therefore dispose of it with your household waste.

Please dispose of it at your local community waste collection / recycling centre.

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.

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 refrigerant 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.

10

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 m 3 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.

~

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.

~

If storing food which contains a lot of fat or oil in the appliance, 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.

13

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 and 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 with this appliance.

Using spare parts or accessories from other manufacturers will invalidate the guarantee, and Miele cannot accept liability.

If the appliance is not going to be used for a longer period of time, e.g. whilst on holiday:

^ switch the appliance off,

^ disconnect it from the mains,

^ clean the appliance and

^ leave the door ajar to air the appliance.

If, during a long absence, the appliance is switched off but not cleaned and the door(s) left shut, there is a danger of mould and odours building up inside the appliance.

^ Touch the On/Off sensor.

The temperature display will go out and the mains connection symbol t will appear.

The interior lighting will go out and the cooling process will be switched off.

When the appliance is switched back on again, Sabbath mode is deactivated.

20

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.

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.

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.

Temperature display

In normal operation the temperature display shows the average, current temperature in the freezer .

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.

21

The correct temperature

Setting the temperature

^

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

By touching the sensor

Approximately 5 seconds after the last time a sensor has been touched, the current temperature inside the appliance is automatically shown.

– the temperature will get colder

– the temperature will get warmer.

The temperature being set will flash in the display.

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

– Touching a sensor once: the last temperature selected flashes.

– Each subsequent touch of the sensor: adjusts the temperature shown in

Using Super freeze

Switch on Super freeze before putting fresh food into the freezer.

This helps food to freeze quickly and retain its nutrients, vitamins, flavours and appearance.

Super freeze is not necessary:

– when placing food in the freezer that is already frozen.

– when freezing up to 2 kg fresh food daily.

Switching off Super freeze

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 switched off. The Super freeze

ª symbol will go out and the appliance will run at normal power again.

To save energy, the Super freeze function can be switched off once a constant temperature of -18 °C is reached inside the freezer. Check the temperature inside the appliance.

Switching on Super freeze

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 .

Temperature and door alarm

This appliance has a warning system which ensures that the temperature in the freezer cannot rise unnoticed and to avoid energy being wasted if a door is left open.

Temperature alarm

If the temperature in the freezer becomes too warm, the alarm symbol

; will flash in the display. An audible alarm will also sound.

The temperature the appliance is set at determines the temperature the appliance recognises as being too warm.

The alarm may sound and the alarm symbol may flash, for example,

– when you switch the appliance on, and for as long as the temperature differs from the temperature set,

– if the freezer door has been left open for a while, e.g. in order to load, to re-arrange or to take food out.

– when freezing large amounts of food at once,

– in the event of a power cut,

– if the appliance has a fault.

The alarm will stop and the alarm symbol

; will go out when the temperature reaches the correct level again.

However, 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 it is still safe to use, and if so, use it as quickly as possible.

Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

32

Freezing and storing food

Maximum freezing capacity

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".

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.

Storing frozen food

When buying frozen food to store in your freezer, check

– 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.

33

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 pre-cooked 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, 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.

– Lean meat freezes better than fatty meat, and can be stored for considerably longer.

– To prevent chops, steaks, cutlets or rolled meat from freezing together in solid blocks when packed, separate with a sheet of plastic freezer film.

– Do not season fresh foods or blanched vegetables before freezing. Only season cooked food lightly before freezing, but care should be taken as the taste of some spices alters when frozen.

– Do not place hot foods or drinks in the freezer. This causes already frozen food to thaw, and increases the energy consumption. Allow hot foods and drinks to cool down before placing them in the freezer.

Packaging

^ Freeze food in portions.

Unsuitable packing material

- wrapping paper

- grease-proof paper

- cellophane

- bin bags

- plastic carrier bags

Suitable packing material

- plastic freezer film

- freezer bags

- aluminium foil

- freezer containers

^

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.

Freezer bags may also be sealed using home heat sealing kits.

^ Make a note of the contents and the date of freezing on the packaging.

34

Freezing and storing food

Before placing food in the freezer

^ When freezing more than 2 kg of fresh food, switch on the Super freeze function some time before placing food in the freezer (see

"Using Super freeze").

This helps food which is already stored in the freezer to remain frozen.

Placing food in the freezer

The following maximum loading weights must not be exceeded:

– Top freezer drawer = 5 kg

– Freezer drawer = 25 kg

– Shelf = 35 kg

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.

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

When placing food on the shelves, make sure that you do not block the ventilation slits in the back wall of the appliance. They are important for trouble-free operation of the appliance and normal energy consumption.

– Freezing the maximum amount

(see data plate)

^

Remove the upper freezer drawers.

^ Place the food flat on the upper shelves so that it freezes through to the core as quickly as possible.

Once frozen:

^

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

– Large items

If you wish to freeze large items such as a turkey or game, the shelves between the drawers can be removed.

^

Remove the upper freezer drawers and carefully lift and slide out the shelves.

35

Freezing and storing food

Defrosting

Frozen food can be defrosted in different ways:

– in a microwave oven,

– in an oven using the "Fan" or

"Defrost" setting,

– at room temperature,

– in the refrigerator (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.

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.

Ice cubes

^

Fill the ice cube tray three quarters full with 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.

^

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.

Cooling drinks

When cooling drinks quickly in the freezer, make sure bottles are not left in for more than one hour ; otherwise they could burst.

36

Cool pack

The cool pack prevents the temperature in the freezer rising too quickly in the event of a power cut. This can help prolong the storage time.

^

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.

In the event of a power cut:

^ Place the frozen cool pack directly on top of the frozen food in the front of the top drawer.

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.

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

Freezing and storing food

37

Automatic defrosting

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 by the condenser 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.
