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 should 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!
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 it
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.
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:

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

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.

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.
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.
The temperature in the appliance will
rise:
– Each subsequent press of the button
adjusts the temperature shown in
1 °C steps.
– the more often the door is opened
and the longer it is kept open,

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.
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
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:

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.
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.
Activating the alarm system
The alarm system is always active. It
does not have to be switched on
manually.
Switching the alarm off early
Once the set temperature has been
reached in the freezer, the alarm

Freezing and storing food
Maximum freezing capacity
Storing frozen food
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".
When buying frozen food to store in
your freezer, check
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.
– 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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
– Do not season fresh foods or

Freezing and storing food
Before placing food in the freezer
Freezing large items
^ 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.
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.
The lowest freezer drawer must
always remain in the appliance.
Placing food in the freezer
Food to be frozen can be placed
anywhere in the freezer.
If you remove a freezer drawer 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.
The top freezer drawer can be
loaded with a maximum of 15 kg of
food. The other drawers and the
cold plates can each hold 25 kg.
^ 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.
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.

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.
10-12 months:
Beef, fruit, vegetables
Defrosting
Frozen food can be defrosted in
different ways:
– in a microwave oven,
Ice cubes
– 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.
^ 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.

Freezing and storing food
Freezer tray
Cool pack
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.
The cool pack prevents the
temperature in the freezer rising too
quickly in the event of a power cut.
^ Space the food out loosely on the
tray.
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.
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.

Defrosting
This freezer is equipped with a Frost
free system. The freezer defrosts
automatically.
The moisture generated by defrosting
settles on the condensor and is
automatically dissipated 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.

Climate range
This appliance must be built in,
otherwise it could tip up.
Location
This appliance should be installed in a
dry, well-ventilated room. It should not
be installed where it is exposed to
direct sunlight or directly adjacent to a
heat-producing appliance such as an
oven or a radiator. The room
temperature should not go above or
below the climate range for which the
appliance is designed. The higher the
ambient temperature of the room, the
more energy the appliance requires to
operate.
Important: tropical / humid
environments
During periods of high humidity,
some condensation may appear on
outside surfaces of cooling
appliances. This condensation will
disappear when humidity levels
drop. For prevention, it is advisable
to install the appliance with sufficient
ventilation in a dry and/or an
air-conditioned room.
Please ensure that doors are closing
and sealing properly.
Please ensure that the appliance is
installed in accordance with these
installation instructions and that the
handle is fitted correctly. Should you
require further assistance please
contact your Miele customer service

Operating in a room which is too cold
will cause the cooling system to switch
off for too long, causing the internal
temperature in the appliance to rise
with the risk of food deteriorating and
going off.
Ventilation
Air at the back of the appliance gets
warm. The appliance housing unit must
be constructed to allow sufficient space
for ventilation.
Air is taken in through the plinth of the
furniture housing unit.
A ventilation gap of at least 38 mm
depth must be provided behind the
appliance for air to circulate.
The cross-sectional area of the
ventilation gaps and also the
cross-sectional area beneath the
ceiling needs to be at least 200 cm2 to
ensure that warm air can be drawn
through without hindrance. Otherwise
the appliance has to work harder,
resulting in an increase in electricity
consumption.

Installation
The ventilation gaps must not be
covered or blocked in any way.
They should be dusted on a regular
basis.
Before installing the appliance
^ Before installation remove the cover
strip, sealing strip and other
accessories from inside the
appliance and from the external rear
wall of the appliance.
^ Do not remove the spacers from the
back of the appliance. These ensure
the gap required between the back
of the appliance and the wall is
maintained.
^ Remove the red transport fixing a,
and use the stopper supplied b to
plug the empty hole.
^ Check that all parts at the back of the
appliance are unhindered. Carefully
remove any hindrance.
Does your old appliance have
a different hinging
mechanism?
^ Remove any cable clips from the
back of the appliance.
If your old appliance had a different
type of hinging, the furniture door can
still be used. Remove the old hinges
from the housing unit. They are no

Adjusting the door hinges
The door hinges are set ex-works to
enable the doors to be opened wide.
However, if the opening angle of the
door needs to be limited for any reason,
the hinges 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°.
^ Place the locking pins supplied for
limiting the door opening into the
hinges from above.
The door opening angle is now limited
to 90°.

Building in the appliance
Building into a peninsular run
All fitting instructions given are for a
right hand hinged appliance. If you
have converted the appliance to left
hand hinging you will need to adapt
these instructions accordingly.
When built into a peninsular run, the
rear of the building-in niche must be
fitted with a kitchen furniture panel.
Aligning the housing unit
To install the appliance you will need
the following:
– a cross-slotted screwdriver,
– a selection of Torx screwdrivers,
– a hexagon spanner.
Weight of the furniture door
Before fitting a furniture door, ensure
that the weight of the door does not
exceed the maximum permitted:
Appliance
Maximum weight of
furniture door in kg

The housing unit must be carefully
aligned using a spirit level before
installing the appliance. The unit
corners must be at right angles, as
otherwise the furniture door will not
align correctly with the 4 corners of the
appliance.
Fitting a door which is heavier than
the maximum permitted could
damage the hinges.

up with the lower edge of top cover
d and then cut the sealing strip
2 - 3 mm above bottom fixing bracket
h.
^ Push the appliance into the niche
until covers d and g touch the front
edge of the side walls of the housing
unit.
– With 16 mm thick walls:
The spacers should touch the front
edge at the top and bottom of the
side walls of the housing unit, detail
a.
– With 19 mm thick walls:
The front edges of the top and
bottom hinges sit flush with the front
edge of the housing unit side walls,
detail b.
^ Make sure that the covers on the top
and bottom fixing brackets sit flush
with the front edges of the housing
unit side walls, detail d.
This will create a gap all round of
42 mm to the front edges of the
housing unit side walls.

Building in the appliance
On furniture with door fittings (e.g.
stubs, seals etc) the dimension of
these must be taken into account when
making sure there is a gap all round of
42 mm.
Securing the appliance in the
niche
^ Pull the appliance forwards by the
dimension of the door fitting to keep
the gap at 42 mm all round.
The hinges and the covers will now
protrude by the dimension of the door
fitting.
Tip: Removing the door fittings. This will
ensure that the door is flush with the
surrounding kitchen unit furniture doors.
If the all round gap of 42 mm is not
maintained between the appliance
casing and the front edge of the
housing unit side wall the door may
not shut properly.
This could lead to a build-up of ice
and condensation and also cause
operational faults.
^ Align the appliance height on both
sides by altering the adjustable feet
using the spanner supplied c.
^ Press the appliance against the
housing unit wall on the hinge side.
^ To fix the appliance to the housing
unit at the top and bottom, screw the
long 4 x 20 mm chip board screws a
into the hinges at the top and bottom.
