IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Technical safety

 The coolant circuit has been checked for leaks. The refrigeration appliance complies with statutory and regulatory requirements.

 The symbol is located on the compressor and indicates the danger of inflammable materials. Do not remove the label.

WARNING! This refrigeration appliance contains the coolant Isobutane (R600a), a natural gas which is environmentally friendly, but flammable. Although it is combustible, it does not damage the ozone layer and does not contribute to 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 cooling circuit. Unfortunately, this cannot be avoided, but it does not affect the performance of the refrigeration appliance.

WARNING! When transporting and installing the refrigeration appliance, ensure that no parts of the cooling circuit are damaged.

Splashes of coolant can damage the eyes.

In the event of damage:

- Avoid open flames or anything which creates a spark.

- Disconnect the refrigeration appliance from the power supply.

- Ventilate the room where the refrigeration appliance is located for several minutes.

- Contact Miele Customer Service.

 The more coolant there is in a refrigeration 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 a combustible gas/ air mixture building up. For every 11 g of coolant, at least 1 m 3 of room space is required. The amount of coolant in the refrigeration appliance is stated on the data plate inside the appliance.

8

IMPORTANT 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 the appliance can only be guaranteed when correctly grounded. It is essential that this standard safety requirement is met. If in any doubt please have the electrical installation tested by a qualified electrician.

 Temporary or permanent operation on an autonomous power supply system or a power supply system that is not synchronized with the grid power supply (e.g., island networks, back-up systems) is possible. A prerequisite for operation is that the power supply system complies with national and local codes.

The function and operation of the protective measures provided in the domestic electrical installation and in this Miele product must also be maintained in isolated operation or in operation that is not synchronized with the grid power supply, or these measures must be replaced by equivalent measures in the installation.

 If the power cord supplied is damaged, it must only be replaced by an original part to prevent a hazard for the user. Miele can only guarantee the safety of the appliance when original Miele parts are used.

 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.

 If moisture gets into electrical components or into the power cord, it could cause a short circuit. Therefore, do not operate the machine in areas where there may be moisture or splashing water (e.g., garages, laundry rooms).

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

9

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 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 after it has been built in.

 During installation, side-by-side heater installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance must be disconnected from the electrical power supply. It is only completely isolated from the electricity supply when:

- the circuit breaker has been tripped, or

A lower ambient temperature leads to the compressor switching off for longer periods. This can cause the internal temperature in the refrigeration appliance to rise with the risk of food deteriorating and going off.

18

*INSTALLATION*

Ventilation

 WARNING! Fire hazard and risk of damage due to insufficient ventilation.

If the refrigeration appliance is not ventilated sufficiently, the compressor will run more frequently and for longer periods. This causes increased energy consumption and an increased compressor operating temperature, which can result in damage to the compressor.

Please ensure that there is adequate ventilation around the refrigeration appliance.

It is essential to observe the required ventilation gaps.

The ventilation gaps must never be obstructed.

They must also be cleaned on a regular basis to remove dust.

There must be a gap of at least

½ inch (13 mm) between the back of the appliance and the rear wall. If this gap is not maintained, this will result in increased energy consumption.

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

(see “Installation dimensions” and the installation instructions provided).

- To ensure ventilation an air channel of a minimum 1 1/2" (40 mm) depth must be provided at the back of the appliance.

- The ventilation slits in the toe-kick, in the cabinet and under the top of the cabinet must provide a total

Installation passage volume of at least 31"²

(200 cm

2

) to allow the warm air to dissipate unimpeded.

- If you wish to fit a grille in the ventilation openings, the ventilation openings must be larger than 31"²

(200 cm

2

). The passage volume of

31"² (200 cm

2

) is the total area of the opening slits in the grille.

- Important! The larger the ventilation slits, the more economically the appliance will work.

Cabinet doors

An upper cabinet door for the refrigerator section and a lower cabinet door for the freezer section are required.

The cabinet doors must be at least

5/8“ (16 mm) / 3/4” (19 mm) thick.

– Weight of the door panel

 If the door panel is too heavy damage can occur.

Installing a door panel which is heavier than the maximum permitted weight could damage the hinges.

This can cause subsequent functional problems.

Before installing the door panel, ensure that the weight of the door panel does not exceed the maximum permitted weight.

 Cut an opening in plinth   as shown in the diagram.

 Place ventilation grille   in the opening.

 Push snap fasteners   into the ventilation grille from behind until the hooks touch the plinth.

Calculation of cabinet door size

The width of the cabinet door depends on the style of the kitchen and the gap between the unit door panels.

When calculating the height of the cabinet door , remember that the top edge of the door must be at the same height as that of the doors of the adjacent units.

The cabinet door must be fitted correctly and not under tension.

Horizontal and vertical gaps

Depending on the style of kitchen cabinetry, the thickness and edge radius of the custom door panel and the gap that runs around the door, vertically and horizontally, are specified.

It is essential to pay attention to the following:

Horizontal gap

The gap between the door panel and the housing-unit door above or below it must be at least 1/8" (3 mm).

Vertical gap

If the gap between the refrigerationappliance door panel and the adjoining housing-unit door or wall on the hinged side is too small, the appliance door could collide with the adjoining housing-unit door or wall when opened.

It may be necessary to adjust the size of this gap to suit the thickness and edge radius of the door panel.

This must be taken into consideration when planning your kitchen and when replacing an old refrigeration appliance with a new one to ensure the installation conditions required are met.

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

41

The correct temperature

It is very important to set the correct temperature to ensure the shelf life of food. Reducing the temperature reduces the growth rate of microorganisms. Food does not spoil as quickly.

The temperature in the appliance will rise:

- the more often the appliance door is opened and the longer it is kept open

- the more food that is stored in it

- the warmer the food is that is being put into it

- the higher the ambient temperature surrounding the refrigeration appliance is. This refrigeration appliance is designed for use within specific ambient temperatures (climate range).

Do not use in ambient temperatures for which it is not designed.

... in the refrigerator section

A temperature of 39°F (4°C) is recommended in the refrigerator section.

... in the freezer section

To freeze fresh food, a temperature of

0°F (-18°C) is required. This will prolong the storage life of your food and retain its quality.

As soon as the temperature rises above

14°F (-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 re-frozen. Food may be re-frozen once it has been cooked (boiled or roasted), as the high temperatures achieved when cooking destroy most bacteria.

42

The correct temperature

Temperature display

In normal operation, the temperature display shows the current average refrigerator section temperature and the maximum freezer section temperature .

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 on the display.

Setting the temperature in the refrigerator/freezer sections

 Touch the temperature display for the section you want to change.

 Swipe left or right until the temperature you want is shown in the middle.

 Tap on the temperature you want to confirm.

The temperature display will then change back to the current refrigerator and freezer temperature in the refrigeration appliance.

Possible temperature settings

- Refrigerator section: 36 to 48°F

(2 to 9°C)

- Freezer section: 5 to 15°F

(-15 to -26°C)

If you change the temperature setting:

 Check the temperature display after a few hours. It will take this long for an accurate reading to be given.

- Wait for approx. 6 hours if the refrigeration appliance is not very full.

- Wait for approx. 24 hours if the refrigeration appliance is full.

If, after this time, the temperature is still too high or too low:

 Adjust the temperature again.

43

Using Automatic SuperCool, SuperFrost, and DynaCool

The refrigeration appliance will work at full power and lower the temperature. Select this function before freezing fresh food. Fresh food will be frozen quickly, so that the nutritional value, vitamin content, appearance, and taste are maintained.

When the SuperFreeze function   is switched on, the appliance may make more noise than usual.

SuperFreeze should be switched on approx. 6 hours before placing food in the freezer section.

When freezing the maximum amount of food , the SuperFreeze function   should be switched on 24 hours beforehand .

The SuperFreeze function   will switch itself off automatically after a maximum of 72 hours. The appliance will then run at normal power again.

The exact amount of time will vary according to how much fresh food is placed in the freezer.

Tip: To save energy, you can switch the

SuperFreeze function off yourself once food and drinks are sufficiently chilled.

You do not need to switch on the SuperFreeze function:

- When you place food that is already frozen in the freezer.

45

Using Automatic SuperCool, SuperFrost, and DynaCool

DynaCool  

When the DynaCool function   is not switched on, the natural circulation of air in the appliance will cause different temperature zones in the refrigerator section, as the cold, heavy air will sink to the lowest section of the appliance.

You should keep this in mind when placing food in the appliance (see

“Storing food in the refrigerator section”).

However, if you are storing a large amount of similar food in the refrigerator at any one time, e.g., after your weekly shop, it is a good idea to turn on DynaCool. This way you can distribute the temperature more evenly across all the shelves so that all the food in the refrigerator section will be chilled to about the same degree.

The temperature can still be set.

Also switch on the DynaCool function   when:

- The ambient temperature is high

(above approx. 85°F/30°C)

- The humidity levels are high (e.g., in the summer)

The fan will always switch on automatically when the compressor switches on.

Tip: As the energy consumption increases when DynaCool   is switched on, you should turn the DynaCool function   off again under normal conditions.

To save energy, the fan turns off automatically while the door is open.

Switching DynaCool   on and off

 Touch the temperature display for the refrigerator section.

 Touch   to switch the DynaCool function on and off again.

Temperature and door alarm

 Health risk caused by decomposing food.

If the temperature in the freezer remains above 0°F (-18°C) for a long time, the frozen food may start to defrost. This will reduce the storage life of the food.

Check whether the frozen food has started to defrost. If it has, use the food as soon as possible or cook it before freezing it again.

Temperature alarm

The refrigeration appliance has been equipped with a warning system so that the temperature in the freezer section cannot rise unnoticed.

If the temperature in the freezer section becomes too warm,  

will light up red in the freezer-section temperature display.

An alarm will also sound until the cause of the alarm is rectified or the alarm is switched off.

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

The audible and visual signals may be activated in the following situations:

- You switch on the refrigeration appliance and the temperature in a temperature zone differs greatly from the set temperature.

- A lot of warm room air enters the freezer section when you are rearranging or taking out frozen food.

- You are freezing large amounts of food at once.

- You are freezing warm food.

Storing food in the refrigerator section

Do not load more than a maximum of

35 lb (16 kg) of food in the appliance door.

 Risk of fire from electrical appliances.

Operating electrical devices in the appliance can cause sparks to form.

Do not operate any electrical devices inside the appliance.

 Risk of explosion due to flammable mixes of gases.

Electrical components can cause flammable mixes of gases to ignite.

Do not store any explosive materials or products containing flammable propellants (e.g., spray cans) in the appliance. The spray cans in question can be identified by the contents printed on the can or by a flame symbol. Electrical components can cause escaping gases to ignite.

 Risk of damage due to greasy or oily foods.

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

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

To allow air to circulate efficiently, do not pack food too closely together in the appliance.

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

56

Storing food in the refrigerator section

Different storage zones

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

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

This machine has DynaCool, which helps to keep an even temperature when the fan is running. The difference between the various temperature zones is therefore less pronounced.

Warmest area

The warmest area in the refrigerator section is in the top section of the door.

Use this for storing butter so that it remains spreadable and cheese so that it retains its flavor.

Coldest area

The coldest area in the refrigerator section is directly above the DailyFresh drawer and at the back of the appliance.

Use these areas to store all delicate and highly perishable food, such as:

- fish, meat, poultry

- cold cuts, ready-made meals

- dishes or baked goods containing eggs or cream

- fresh dough, cake mixtures, pizza dough, or pie dough

- raw-milk cheese and other raw-milk products

- pre-packed vegetables

- other fresh food (with a label stating it should be kept at a temperature of approx. 39°F (4°C))

57

Storing food in the refrigerator section

Food which is not suitable for storage in the fridge zone

Not all food is suitable for refrigeration at temperatures below 40°F (5°C) because it is sensitive to cold.

Foods which are sensitive to cold include:

- pineapples, avocados, bananas, pomegranates, mangoes, melons, papayas, passion fruit, citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges, mandarins, grapefruits

- fruit (which is not yet ripe)

- eggplant, cucumbers, potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini

- hard cheeses (e.g., Parmesan)

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.

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

Time out of the fridge, e.g., transporting food in a warm car, should be kept to a minimum.

Storing food correctly

Ensure that food stored in the refrigerator section is in packaging or covered properly (some exceptions apply in the

DailyFresh drawer). This will prevent food odors from affecting other food, stop food from drying out, and also prevent any cross-contamination of bacteria. This is particularly important when storing meat products. Make sure that food such as raw meat and fish in particular does not come into contact with other food.

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

Protein-rich food

Please note that foods rich in protein deteriorate faster than others. Shellfish, for example, deteriorates faster than fish, and fish deteriorates faster than meat.

58

Storing food in the DailyFresh drawer

The DailyFresh drawer provides good storage conditions for fruit and vegetables.

The humidity level in the DailyFresh drawer can also be regulated to suit the food being stored. Food retains its own moisture if stored at a higher humidity and so does not dry out as quickly. The temperature is approximately equivalent to the temperature in the conventional refrigerator section.

Remember that the fresher the food when it is placed in the appliance, the longer it will stay fresh.

Selecting low humidity  

By default, the humidity is increased and the compartment cover pushed backwards  .

Only change this default setting if the humidity level in the DailyFresh drawer is too high:

Adjusting the humidity level in the

DailyFresh drawer for fruit and vegetables

The moisture level greatly depends on the type and quantity of food being stored, if stored unwrapped.

If the quantity of food being stored in this compartment is small, the humidity level may be too low.

Tip: If you are only storing a small amount of food, wrap it in airtight packaging.

 Pull the compartment lid forward as far as it will go.

The compartment lid is open and the humidity drops  .

Selecting increased humidity  

 Slide the compartment lid backward as far as it will go.

The compartment lid is closed and the humidity remains in the compartment   .

59

Storing food in the DailyFresh drawer

Observe the following tips if you find that food you have stored does not keep well (e.g., food becomes limp or wilts after only being stored for a short time):

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

 Clean the DailyFresh drawer before storing food in it.

 Very wet food should be dried off before storing it.

 Do not store food which is sensitive to cold in the DailyFresh drawer (see “Storing food in the refrigerator section – Food which is not suitable for storage in the refrigerator section”).

 Set the compartment cover to the correct position for the food being stored (humidity not increased  or humidity increased  ).

 An increased humidity level   in the humidity-controlled compartment is achieved with the moisture present in the food being stored if it is stored unwrapped. The more food stored in the compartment, the higher the humidity.

 If too much moisture collects in the compartment at the  setting and the food is affected, dry the floor and place a rack or similar item in the compartment so that excess moisture can drip down. Alternatively, reduce the humidity  by pulling the compartment cover forwards.

 If the humidity level is too low despite the   setting, wrap the food in airtight packaging.

60

Freezing and storing food

Always observe USDA food safety guidelines.

 Risk of fire from electrical appliances.

Operating electrical devices in the appliance can cause sparks to form.

Do not operate any electrical devices inside the appliance.

What happens when you freeze fresh food?

 Health risk caused by decomposing food.

If the temperature in the freezer remains above 0°F (-18°C) for a long time, the frozen food may start to defrost. This will reduce the storage life of the food.

Check whether the frozen food has started to defrost. If it has, use the food as soon as possible or cook it before freezing it again.

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 24hour period is given on the data plate:

“Freezing capacity ... lbs/24 hrs”.

Storing frozen food

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

- that the packaging is not damaged

- the expiration date

- that the temperature at which the frozen food is being stored in the shop is 0°F (-18°C) or colder

 Where possible, transport frozen food in an insulated bag and then store it quickly in the refrigeration appliance.

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

If food is frozen quickly, the cells have less time to lose moisture, so they shrink significantly 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.

61

Freezing and storing food

Home freezing

Before placing food in the freezer

 When freezing more than 4.4 lb (2 kg) of fresh food, switch on the Super-

Freeze function   for 6 hours before placing the food in the freezer.

 When freezing even larger amounts of food, switch on the SuperFreeze function   for 24 hours before placing the food in the freezer.

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

 Only freeze food that is fresh and in good condition.

Please note that some food is not suitable for freezing. These include, for example, vegetables that are usually eaten raw, such as lettuce or radishes.

Tip: To retain color, taste, aroma, and vitamin C, vegetables should be blanched before they are frozen. To do so, place them portion by portion into boiling water for 2–3 minutes. Then, remove and plunge the vegetables into ice-cold water to cool quickly. Leave the vegetables to drain.

Packaging food for freezing

 Freeze food in portions.

Tip: Use suitable packaging to avoid freezer burn (such as freezer containers).

 Expel as much air as possible from the packaging and close it tightly.

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

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 shelves.

Do not exceed the relevant maximum load:

Freezer drawer = 26 Ib (12 kg)

Glass shelf = 77 lb (35 kg)

Unfrozen food should not touch frozen food as this will cause the frozen food to begin to thaw.

 To prevent food sticking together when frozen, make sure that the packaging and containers are dry.

To ensure that food freezes through to the core quickly, do not exceed the following packaging and container sizes:

- fruit and vegetables: max. 2.2 lb (1 kg)

- meat: max. 5.5 lb (2.5 kg)

62

Freezing and storing food

– Freezing small amounts of food

Place the food in the upper freezer drawers.

 Place the food flat in the bottom of the upper freezer drawers so that it freezes through to the core as quickly as possible.

– Freezing the maximum amount of food (see data plate)

If the ventilation slots are obstructed, the cooling performance will decrease and energy consumption will increase.

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

Once the food has frozen:

 Switch the SuperFreeze function   off.

 Place the frozen food in the freezer drawers and push them back in.

Where the storage time given on the packaging differs, follow the advice on the packaging.

By keeping the freezer section at a constant temperature of 0°F (-18°C) and taking appropriate hygiene measures you can maximize the storage life of your food and avoid food waste.

63

Defrosting

 WARNING! DANGER of injury and damage!

Do not use any mechanical or other types of aids which are not recommended by the manufacturer to accelerate the defrosting process.

Refrigerator section and DailyFresh drawer

The refrigerator section and the DailyFresh drawer defrost automatically.

Condensate and frost can build up on the back wall of the refrigerator section when the compressor is running. You do not need to remove this.

The condensate drains through a channel and drain hole into an evaporation system at the back of the refrigeration appliance. The warmth generated by the compressor causes the condensate to evaporate automatically.

Keep the condensate channel and drain hole clean to enable this. The condensate must always be able to drain properly.

Freezer section

The appliance is equipped with a

“NoFrost” system. The freezer defrosts automatically.

The moisture generated in the appliance collects on the condenser and is automatically defrosted and evaporates periodically.

This automatic defrosting system enables the Freezer Zone to remain permanently ice-free. However, the food stored in the freezer will not defrost.
