6

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 This appliance contains the refrigerant Isobutane (R600a), a natural gas which is environmentally friendly. Although it is combustible, it does not damage the ozone layer and does not increase the greenhouse effect.

The use of this refrigerant 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 refrigerant 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 cause severe irritation to the eyes.

In the event of any damage:

– avoid open flames and anything that creates a spark,

– disconnect the appliance from the electrical power supply,

– air the room where the wine conditioning unit is located for several minutes, and

– contact Miele Technical Service

7

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 The more coolant there is in a wine conditioning unit, 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 0.28 oz (8 g) of coolant at least 35.3 cubic feet

(1 m

3

) of room space is required. The amount of coolant in the wine conditioning unit is stated on the data plate inside the appliance.

 To avoid the risk of damage to the wine conditioning unit, 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 wine conditioning unit. Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.

 The electrical safety of the wine conditioning unit 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 the wine conditioning unit can only be guaranteed if it is connected to the power supply.

 Do not connect the appliance 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.

 Do not use the appliance in areas where there may be moisture or splashing water (e.g., garages, laundry rooms, etc.). Moisture can reach the electrical components and cause a short circuit.

8

 Installation, repair, and maintenance work should only be performed by a Miele-authorized service technician.

Work by unqualified persons could be dangerous and may void the warranty.

 Repairs and other work performed by unauthorized persons could be dangerous and may void the warranty.

 Defective components should only be replaced by Miele original parts. Only with these parts can the manufacturer guarantee the safety of the appliance.

9

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Proper use

 The wine conditioning unit is designed for use within a certain climate range (ambient temperatures) and should not be used outside this range. The climate range for your wine conditioning unit is stated on the data plate inside the appliance. Installing it in a room with too low an ambient temperature will cause the compressor to shut down for longer periods of time so that the unit cannot maintain the required temperature.

 Do not cover or block the air vents. This can impair the efficiency of the appliance, increase the power consumption and cause damage to the appliance.

 If the wine conditioning unit is used for storing food which contains fat or oil, make sure that it does not come into contact with plastic components as any spillages of oil or fat could cause stress cracks to the plastic and cause it to break or split.

 Do not store explosive materials in the wine conditioning unit or any products containing propellants (e.g. spray cans). Electrical components could cause flammable vapors to ignite. Danger of fire and explosion.

 Do not operate any electrical equipment inside the wine conditioning unit. Danger of sparking and explosion.

 Use only genuine original Miele parts. If parts or accessories from other manufacturers are used, the warranty may become invalid.

Cleaning and care

 Do not use any oil or grease on the door seals.

They can cause the seals to deteriorate over time.

 Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this wine conditioning unit.

The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short circuit.

10

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 Sharp edged or pointed objects will damage the evaporator, causing irreversible damage to the wine conditioning unit. Do not use sharp edged or pointed objects to

– remove frost and ice,

– remove labels, stickers etc.

11

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

26

Optimum temperature and air quality

Wine continues to mature depending on the surrounding conditions. The length of time for which wine can be kept in good condition will therefore depend not only on the temperature but also on the air quality.

The wine conditioning unit with its constant ideal temperature, increased air humidity and odor-free atmosphere offers the perfect conditions for storing your wine.

The wine conditioning unit also guarantees a vibration-free environment (in contrast to a refrigerator) so that the maturing process is not disturbed.

Temperature

Wine can be stored at a temperature between 42° and 64°F (6° and 18°C). If you are storing white and red wines together, select a temperature between

53° and 57°F (12° and 14°C). This is suitable for both white and red wines.

Red wine should be taken out of the wine conditioning unit and opened at least two hours before drinking to allow it to breathe and develop its aroma.

At too high a temperature (over 72°F /

22°C), wine matures too quickly, which prevents the aromas from developing further. Wine cannot mature fully at too low a temperature (below 41°F / 5°C).

Fluctuations in temperature put wine under stress and interrupt the maturing process. It is therefore very important to maintain a constant temperature.

Type of wine

Light, fruity red wines:

Full-bodied red wines:

Rosé wines:

Recommended drinking temperature

57° to 61°F (14° to 16°C)

64°F (18°C)

Delicate, aromatic white wines:

Full-bodied or sweet white wines:

Champagne, sparkling white wines:

46° to 50°F (8° to

10°C)

46° to 54°F (8° to

12°C)

46° to +57°F (12° to 14°C)

43° to 50°F (6° to

10°C)

Tip: Store the wine 1° or 2°C cooler than the recommended drinking temperature as it warms up a little when poured into the glass.

Tip: Full-bodied reds should be opened for 2-3 hours before drinking to allow it to breathe and develop its aroma.

27

Optimum temperature and air quality

Safety device in case of low ambient temperatures

The appliance is equipped with a safety thermostat to protect your wine against a sharp drop in temperature. If the external temperature should drop below this level, a heater element turns on automatically to keep the temperature inside as constant as possible. If the ambient temperature continues to fall, the appliance switches itself off automatically.

Sets the temperature

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

By touching the button:

– the temperature will get colder

When you touch the sensors, you will see the following changes in the display:

– With the first touch: The last temperature selected flashes.

– Each subsequent touch of the sensor: The temperature changes in 1°C increments.

– Keeping your finger on the button:

The temperature changes continuously.

A tone will sound (if the keypad tone is switched on) when the lowest or highest possible temperature is reached.

Approx. 5 seconds after you release the button, the actual temperature value in the appliance will be displayed.

When the temperature is altered, there is a short delay until the temperature selected is set.

The temperature display in the control panel always shows the actual temperature.

– the temperature will get warmer.

 Tap the OK button to confirm your selection or

 wait approx. 5 seconds after the last press of the button.

The temperature being set will flash in the display.

28

Optimum temperature and air quality

Temperature range

The temperature can be set between

41° and 68°F (5° and 20°C).

Temperature display

In normal operation the temperature display shows the actual temperature in the appliance.

If the temperature in one of the zones is not within the range that the appliance is able to display, dashes will light up in the temperature display.

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.

Air quality and humidity

A conventional refrigerator with its low humidity level is not the best place to store wine. It is very important to store wine in an atmosphere with a high humidity level so that the corks remain moist on the outside. Low humidity causes corks to dry out from the outside, and so do not seal the bottles as tightly. Wine should be stored lying down to keep the corks moist from the inside too. Air entering the bottle will inevitably spoil the wine.

Do not introduce additional moisture into the air, e.g. by placing a dish of water in the appliance. This will lead to condensation on the interior walls, which can cause corrosion damage.

29

Optimum temperature and air quality

DynaCool (constant humidity)  

DynaCool raises the relative humidity inside the appliance. It also distributes the humidity and the temperature evenly around the interior so that you can store all your wine under the same excellent conditions.

This will create a stable climate in the unit which imitates that of a wine cellar.

Turning on DynaCool

If you would like to use the wine conditioning unit for long term wine storage, we recommend that you keep the DynaCool function turned on.

Turning off DynaCool

The appliance uses slightly more energy and is a little noisier when the DynaCool function is turned on. You can turn it off occasionally if desired.

 Touch the On/Off sensor of the Dyna-

Cool function so that it is no longer highlighted in yellow.

 Touch the sensor to turn the Dyna-

Cool function on/off. The sensor will be highlighted in yellow.

Even if DynaCool has not been turned on, the fans in the appliance will come on automatically when the cooling system turns on. This ensures the optimum climate for your wine is maintained.

The fans automatically turn off when the door is open.

30

Optimum temperature and air quality

Air filtration with the Active AirClean filter

The Active AirClean filter achieves optimum air quality by filtering the incoming air.

Fresh air from the room enters the appliance via the Active AirClean filter.

The fans (DynaCool function) then distribute the air evenly throughout the wine conditioning unit.

Filtering the incoming air through the

Active AirClean filter ensures that all air entering the appliance is fresh and free from dust and odors.

This also ensures your wine does not absorb any unwanted odors through the corks.

Replace the Active AirClean filter regularly. The    symbol will appear in the display to remind you (see "Active Air-

Clean filter").

31
