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.

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!

Rather than just throwing these materials away, please ensure that they are recycled.

Disposal of your old appliance

Electrical and electronic appliances often 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 your old appliance with your household waste.

Please dispose of it at your local community waste collection / recycling centre or contact your dealer for advice. Ensure that it presents no danger to children while being stored for disposal.

It should be unplugged or disconnected from the mains electricity supply by a competent person.

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 out into the environment.

Warning and Safety instructions

Technical safety

~

Before setting up the appliance, check it for any externally visible damage. Do not install and use a damaged appliance.

~

If the connection cable is faulty it must only be replaced by a service technician authorised by the manufacturer to protect the user from danger.

~

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, but 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 coolant can damage the eyes.

In the event of any damage:

- avoid open fires and anything which creates a spark,

- disconnect from the mains,

- air the room in which the appliance is located for several minutes and

- contact the Service Department for advice.

~

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.

~ Safe operation of the appliance is only assured if it has been installed and connected in accordance with these operating and installation instructions.

~

Before connecting the appliance to the mains supply, make sure that the rating on the data plate corresponds to the voltage and frequency of the household supply.

This data must correspond in order to avoid the risk of damage to the appliance. Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.

~

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).

7

Warning and Safety instructions

~ The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when continuity is complete between it and an effective earthing system which complies with current local and national safety regulations. It is most important that this basic safety requirement is present and tested regularly, and where there is any doubt, the household wiring system should be inspected by a qualified electrician.

The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage or injury caused by the lack of or inadequacy of an effective earthing system (e.g. electric shock).

~

Installation, maintenance and repairs may only be carried out by a suitably qualified and competent person in strict accordance with current national and local safety regulations.

Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for unauthorised work.

~

While the appliance is under guarantee, repairs should only be undertaken by a service technician authorised by the manufacturer.

Otherwise the guarantee will be invalidated.

~ The appliance must be isolated from the electricity supply during installation, maintenance and repair work.

The appliance is only completely isolated from the electricity supply when:

– it has been switched off at the wall socket and the plug has been withdrawn.

– the fuse from the fused spur connection unit has been withdrawn, or

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

~

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

~

Any damage which may be caused by cockroaches or other vermin will not be covered by the guarantee.

8

Warning and Safety instructions

Correct use

~

Never handle frozen food with wet hands. Your hands may freeze to the frozen food.

~

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 thawed or partially thawed food.

Defrosted food should be used up as quickly as possible, as food soon loses it nutritional value and goes off.

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

~

Never store explosive materials in the appliance or any products containing propellants (e.g. spray cans). Thermostats switching on may produce sparks which could present a fire hazard. Flammable compounds could explode.

~

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, resulting in injury or damage.

~

Observe the "use by" dates 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. Follow the instructions given on food manufacturer's packaging on storage conditions required, as well as the “use by” date.

~ Do not use sharp edged objects to

– remove frost and ice,

– separate frozen foods or remove ice trays.

They will damage the evaporator, causing irreversible damage to the appliance.

~

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.

~

Do not use any oils or grease on the door seal, as these will cause the seal to deteriorate and become porous with time.

9

Warning and Safety instructions

~ Do not block the ventilation gaps in the plinth or the top of the appliance housing unit as this would impair the efficiency of the appliance, increase the electricity consumption and could cause damage to the appliance.

~ The appliance is designed for use within certain climate ranges (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, can lead to the appliance switching off for longer periods so that it cannot maintain the required temperature.

~

Do not use a steam-cleaning appliance to defrost or clean this appliance. Pressurised steam could reach the electrical components and cause a short circuit.

Disposal of your old freezer

~

Before disposing of an old appliance, first make the door latch or lock unusable.

This way you will prevent children from accidentally locking themselves in and endangering their lives.

~

Be careful not to damage any part of the pipework whilst awaiting disposal, e.g. by

– puncturing the refrigerant channels int he evaporator, e.g. by

– bending any pipework.

– scratching the surface coating.

Splashes of refrigerant can damage the eyes.

The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage caused by non-compliance with these Warning and Safety instructions.

PerfectFresh zone just above 0 °C

Freezer section -18°C

On appliances with winter setting, please make sure that the winter setting is switched off when the ambient temperature is warmer than 16 °C.

Wine storage section 10 to 12 °C

Only open the doors when necessary and for as short a time as possible.

Store food in an organised way.

Frequent opening of the doors for long periods will cause a loss of coldness.

If food is not stored in an organised way, searching for an item will mean the door is open for longer.

Allow hot food and drinks to cool down before placing them in the appliance.

Placing hot food in the appliance will cause the compressor to run for a long time, as the appliance will have to work harder to lower the temperature.

Store food covered or packaged.

The evaporation or condensation of liquids will cause a loss of coldness in the refrigerator.

Place frozen food in the refrigerator to defrost.

Do not over-fill the appliance to allow air to circulate.

Defrost the freezer compartment when a layer of ice 0.5 cm thick has built up.

A layer of ice hinders the cold from reaching the frozen food, and causes an increase in energy consumption.

11

Switching on and off

Before using for the first time

^ Clean the inside of the appliance and the accessories with warm water and a little washing-up liquid, and then dry with a soft cloth.

The cooling system is switched off. (If this does not happen, the safety lock is still activated).

Important:

To ensure the correct functioning of the appliance, let it stand for between 1½ and 2 hours after transporting it to its final location before connecting it to the mains.

^ switch the appliance off,

^ switch off at the wall socket and withdraw the plug,

^ defrost and clean the appliance out, and

^ leave the door ajar to air the appliance.

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

Switching on and off

13

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 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,

– if too much food is stored in it at once,

– 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 in specific ambient temperatures

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

Setting the temperature

Use the two buttons underneath the temperature display to set the temperature for the freezer.

Press the

+ button: to raise the temperature

(it gets warmer)

– button: to reduce the temperature

(it gets cooler).

The temperature being set will flash in the display.

When pressing the buttons, the following information shows in the display:

– When first pressed, the last temperature selected flashes.

– Each subsequent press of the button adjusts the temperature shown in

1 °C steps.

– Keeping the button pressed in adjusts the temperature continually.

Approx. 5 seconds after letting go of the button, the current actual temperature of the freezer section is automatically shown.

14

The correct temperature

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 display 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 from:

-14 °C to -28 °C

The ambient temperature in the room and the installation location can affect the time it takes for the appliance to reach the lowest temperature. If the ambient temperature is too high, the appliance may not reach the lowest temperature.

This loss of coldness is no cause for concern in the following circumstances:

– when the door has been left open for a while, e.g. for removing or storing a large amount of food,

– when fresh food is being frozen.

However, if the temperature in the freezer section remains above -18 °C for a long time, check that the frozen food has not started to defrost. If it has started thawing, check that the food is safe to use and if it is, use it as quickly as possible.

Temperature display brightness

The appliance is supplied with the brightness of the temperature display set as low as possible. However, if the door is opened, a setting changed or if the alarm is sounding, the temperature display will appear much brighter.

The level of brightness can be adjusted:

Temperature display

During normal operation, the temperature display on the control panel shows the temperature in the warmest part of the appliance.

If the temperature is not within the range that the appliance is able to display (below 0 °C), bars will flash in the temperature display.

The temperature display will flash if

– a different temperature is being set,

– the temperature in the appliance has risen by several degrees, indicating that the appliance is warming up too much.

^ Press and hold the Super freeze button for approx. 5 seconds.

The Super freeze indicator light flashes and a

; flashes in the temperature display.

15

The correct temperature

^ Press one of the temperature selector buttons repeatedly until

^ appears in the display.

^ Press the Super freeze button again.

^ lights up in the display.

^ You can now adjust the level of brightness by pressing the temperature selector buttons. You can choose from settings

1 to

5

:

1 : dimmest setting,

5 : brightest setting.

^ Press the Super freeze button to save the setting.

^ Press the On/Off button to come out of setting mode.

If you do not do this, the electronics will switch over to normal operation automatically after a couple of minutes.

16

Alarm

Your appliance has been fitted with 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.

Activating the alarm system

The alarm system is always active. It does not have to be switched on manually.

Temperature alarm

An alarm will sound and the temperature display will flash if the temperature becomes too warm. The temperature the appliance is set at determines the temperature the appliance recognises as being too warm.

The alarm will sound and the alarm indicator light will flash,

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

– when freezing large amounts of food at once.

– if there has been a lengthy interruption to the power supply.

Super freeze

Super freeze

Switch the Super freeze function on 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 putting in food that is already frozen.

– when freezing less than 2 kg fresh food daily.

Switching on Super freeze

When freezing small quantities of food in the freezer, the Super freeze function should be switched on 6 hours before loading the freezer . When freezing the maximum load of food the Super freeze function should be switched on

24 hours before loading the freezer .

Switching off Super freeze

The Super freeze function will switch off automatically after a minimum of 30 hours and a maximum of 65 hours. The indicator light 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 or colder has been reached in the freezer.

You should also check the temperature inside the appliance from time to time.

^ Press the Super freeze button. The

Super freeze indicator light will go out, and the appliance will continue to operate at normal power.

^ Press the Super freeze button until the light comes on.

The appliance works at full power to lower the temperature in the appliance.

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 is in accordance with

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.

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.

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

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.

19

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, pastry, 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 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

20 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 considerably. Allow hot foods and drinks to cool down before placing them in the freezer.

Packing

^ 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.

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 for some time before placing the food in the freezer (see

"Super freeze").

This also helps to prevent food that is already in the freezer from starting to defrost.

Freezing large items

If you wish to freeze large items such as a turkey or game, the glass cold plates between the drawers can be removed. To do this:

^ Remove the freezer drawers and carefully lift and slide out the glass cold plate.

If required, all the drawers and glass plates can be removed from the appliance in order to utilise the entire space.

Placing food in the freezer

Fresh food can be placed in any drawer for freezing, however it is preferable to use the lower drawers.

Large quantities should be placed directly on the glass cold plates to freeze the food quickly. To do this first take out one or more of the freezer drawers.

Each drawer and glass cold plate can take a maximum of 25 kg.

Freezer calendar

The freezer calendar on the freezer drawer gives the length of time in months which various foods can be stored for effectively.

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

^ Place the food flat in the bottom of the drawers or on the glass cold plates so that it freezes through to the core as quickly as possible.

^ Make sure that the packaging and containers are dry to prevent them sticking together when frozen.

When freezing, make sure that food already frozen does not come into contact with fresh food being frozen as this could cause the frozen food to begin to defrost.

2-3 months:

Cakes, ice cream, stews

3-5 months:

Fish, mushrooms, bread

6-8 months:

Pork, veal, poultry

10-12 months:

Beef, fruit, vegetables

21

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 other food cold),

– in a steam oven.

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.

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.

Ice cubes

^ Fill the ice tray three quarters full with water, and place it in the bottom of one of the 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 while.

Cooling drinks

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

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.

22

Freezing and storing food

Freezer tray

The freezer tray is useful for freezing small items such as berries and vegetables. They can be frozen individually and therefore maintain their shape when defrosted.

^ Space the food out loosely on the tray.

^ Hang the tray in one of the upper freezer drawers.

Leave the food for 10-12 hours to freeze thoroughly on the tray. Transfer it to a freezer bag or suitable container once frozen. Place the bag or container in the freezer drawer.

Cool pack

The cool pack prevents the temperature in the freezer rising too quickly in the event of a power cut.

Place the cool pack in the upper drawer directly on top of food, or in the freezer tray to save space. The cool pack will be at its most effective after it has been in the freezer for approx. 24 hours.

If there is a power cut, place the cool pack directly on top of the frozen food in the top drawer so that the food will be kept cold for as long as possible.

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.

23

Defrosting the appliance

In normal use, ice and frost will form in the freezer. If allowed to accumulate, this will impair the efficiency of the freezer and increase the consumption of electricity.

Do not scrape ice and frost off as this can cause damage and render the freezer unusable.

To defrost

Carry out the defrosting procedure as quickly as possible if food has not been placed in another freezer.

The longer the food is left out at room temperature, the faster it defrosts.

The freezer should be defrosted from time to time. It must be defrosted if a layer of ice approx. 0.5 cm thick has accumulated. It is best to defrost when only very little food or no food at all is left in the freezer.

Before defrosting

^ Switch on the Super freeze function approx.1 day before defrosting to ensure frozen food retains its cold reserve for longer when taken out of the freezer.

^ Remove the frozen food from the freezer and place it in another freezer or cool box, or wrap it in several layers of newspaper or cloths and store in a cool place until the freezer is ready for use again.

^ Remove all the freezer drawers from the freezer.

^ Switch the appliance off, switch off at the socket and remove the plug.

^ Open the freezer door.

To speed up defrosting, two bowls of hot water (not boiling), with plates underneath them, can be placed in the appliance. Closing the door in this instance will help retain the warmth and speed up the defrosting process.

^ Use a sponge or towel to soak up the defrosted water.

We do not recommend the use of hot air blowers such as hairdryers for defrosting your freezer.

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 could contain substances which may damage the plastic parts and which may cause a build-up of gases and pose a danger to health.

24

After defrosting

^ Clean the appliance, and then dry it thoroughly.

^ Close the appliance door, insert the plug in the socket and switch the appliance back on.

^ Switch on the Super freeze function so that the appliance can cool down quickly. The indicator light will come on.

^ Once the temperature in the freezer is sufficiently low, slide the glass cold plates back into the freezer, then replace the food in the freezer drawers and put them back in the freezer.

^ Switch off Super freeze by pressing the Super freeze button when the temperature in the freezer is a constant -18 °C or colder.

The indicator light will go out.

Defrosting the appliance

25

Cleaning and care

Never use cleaning agents containing abrasive substances such as sand, soda, acids, chlorides or chemical solvents.

"Non-abrasive" cleaning agents are also unsuitable as they can cause matt areas to appear.

^ After cleaning, wipe the interior and accessories with a damp cloth, and dry with a soft cloth. Leave the door open to air the appliance for a short while.

Make sure that water cannot get into the temperature selector.

Ventilation gaps

^ The ventilation gaps should be cleaned on a regular basis with a brush or vacuum cleaner. A build-up of dust will increase the energy consumption of the appliance.

Never use steam-cleaning apparatus to defrost or clean the appliance. Steam could reach the electrical components and cause a short circuit.

Door seal

The data plate located inside the appliance must not be removed. It contains information which is required in the event of a service call.

Do not use any oils or grease on the door seal as these will cause the seal to deteriorate and become porous over time.

The door seals should be cleaned regularly with clean water, and then wiped dry with a soft cloth.

Before cleaning

^ Switch the appliance off, switch off at the socket and remove the plug.

^ Take any frozen food out of the appliance and store it in a cool place.

^ Take out any removable parts, e.g.

shelves, for cleaning.

^ Defrost the freezer.

Cleaning the interior and accessories

Use warm water with a little washing up liquid. Wash all accessories and drawers by hand only. Do not wash in a dishwasher.

After cleaning

^ Close the door and switch the appliance on.

^ Switch on the Super freeze function so that the freezer can cool down quickly.

The indicator light will come on.

^ Once the temperature in the freezer is sufficiently low, place the food back in the freezer drawers and put them back in the freezer.

^ You can switch the Super freeze function off once the temperature in the freezer has reached a constant temperature of at least -18°C.

The indicator light will then go out.

Problem solving guide

Repairs to electrical appliances should only be carried out by a suitably qualified and competent person in strict accordance with current local and national safety regulations. Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for unauthorised work.

Ensure that current is not supplied to the appliance until after maintenance or repair work has been carried out.

What to do if . . .

. . . the appliance does not get cool.

^ Check whether the appliance has been switched on. The temperature display must be lit up.

^ Check that the plug is correctly inserted in the socket and switched on.

^ Check that the fuse is not defective and that the mains fuse has not tripped. If it has, contact the Miele

Service Department.

. . . the door will not open because it has been opened and closed too many times in succession.

This is not a fault. The suction caused by opening and closing the door is preventing the door from opening. Wait a few minutes and then try again. It should now open without force.

. . . the temperature is too low.

^ Select a warmer temperature.

^ The Super freeze function is still switched on. The Super freeze function switches itself off automatically after approx. 30 - 65 hours.

. . . the compressor is switching in too frequently and for too long.

^ Check whether the ventilation gaps in the plinth and in the housing unit at the top have been covered over or become too dusty.

^ The door has been opened too frequently, or a large amount of fresh food has been put in at once for freezing.

^ Check that the door has been closed properly.

^ Check to see whether a thick layer of ice has built up in the freezer. If it has, then the freezer will need defrosting.

27

Problem solving guide

. . . the compressor runs continuously.

To save energy, the compressor runs at a lower speed, but for longer, when less cooling is required.

. . . food has frozen together.

Use a blunt instrument, e.g. a spoon handle or plastic scraper, to prise it apart carefully.

. . . a bar is lit up or flashing in the temperature display.

Check the temperature display about 6 hours after switching on the appliance.

Only temperatures within the range the appliance can display will be shown. If the temperature is not within this range, a bar will be displayed instead.

. . . "F0" to "F9" show in the temperature display.

There is a fault. Call the Service

Department.

. . . . . . there is a thick layer of ice in the freezer section.

^ Check whether the door closes properly.

^ Defrost and then clean the freezer.

Too thick a layer of ice reduces efficiency and increases energy consumption.

. . . " nA

" appears in the temperature display.

The temperature has risen too high at some point during the last couple of days because of a power cut.

^ Press the alarm button whilst " nA

" is lit up in the display.

. . . the alarm sounds and the temperature display flashes.

^ Has the appliance door been open for longer than 60 seconds?

If this is not the case, then the freezer temperature has risen above the temperature set because

^ the door has been opened too frequently, or large amounts of fresh food have been put in at once for freezing.

^ the ventilation gaps are blocked.

^ there has been a lengthy interruption to the power supply.

Once the problem has been resolved the temperature display will light up constantly and the alarm will stop.

The temperature display will show the warmest temperature recorded in the appliance during the power cut.

Depending on the temperature displayed, you should check the condition of food in the freezer. If it has defrosted or started to defrost, check that it is still safe to use and if so use it as soon as possible. Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

The warmest temperature will show in the display for about 1 minute. The actual current temperature in the freezer section will then show in the display again.

28

At the end of a power cut, the appliance will start operating again at the last temperature setting selected.

. . . the Super freeze indicator light does not light up, even though the appliance is working.

The indicator light is defective. Call the

Service Department.

. . . you cannot switch the appliance off.

The safety lock has been activated.

If you still cannot remedy the fault having followed these suggestions, please contact the Miele Service

Department.

To prevent unnecessary loss of temperature it is advisable not to open the door while waiting for the appliance to be serviced.

Adjusting the door hinges

The door hinges are set ex-works to enable the door to be opened wide.

However, if the opening angle of the door needs to be limited for any reason, the hinge can be adjusted to accommodate this.

– For example, if the appliance door hits an adjacent wall when opened, the opening angle can be limited to

90°.

– If you would like the appliance door to be cushioned so that it opens more softly, the spring tension on the appliance door can be adjusted.

^ Place the locking pins supplied for limiting the door opening into the hinges from above.

The door opening angle is now limited to 90°.

To do this, use the allen key supplied to adjust the door hinges.

a To reduce the opening angle:

^ Turn the allen key clockwise.

This tightens the hinges and makes it harder to open the door wide.
