This appliance is intended for use in domestic households and similar working and residential environments.

It is not intended for outdoor use.

~

It must only be used as a domestic appliance to store deep-frozen food, freeze fresh food, and make ice.

Any other usage is not supported by the manufacturer and could be dangerous.

Safety with children

~

Children should be supervised in the vicinity of the appliance.

~

Children ages eight and up may only use the appliance oven without supervision if they have been shown how to use it in a safe manner, and if they are able to recognize and understand the potential risks of improper use.

~

Children must not clean or service the appliance unless they are under supervision.

4

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

~

Children should be supervised when they are near the appliance. This appliance is not a toy! To avoid the risk of injury, do not allow children to play with it or to use the controls. They will not understand the potential dangers posed by it. They should be supervised whenever you are working in the kitchen.

~

Ensure that any packing material is disposed of safely and kept out of the reach of children. Danger of suffocation!

Technical safety

~

The coolant system is tested for leaks.

~

This appliance contains the coolant isobutane (R600a), a natural gas which is environmentally friendly. Although it is flammable, it does not damage the ozone layer and does not increase the greenhouse effect.

The use of this coolant has, however, led to a slight increase in the noise level of the appliance. In addition to the noise of the compressor, you might be able to hear the coolant flowing around the system. This is unavoidable, and does not have any adverse effect on the performance of the appliance.

Care must be taken during the transportation and setting up of the appliance that no parts of the cooling system are damaged. Leaking refrigerant can damage the eyes.

In the event of any damage:

– avoid open flames and anything that creates a spark

– disconnect the appliance from the electrical power supply

– air the room in which the appliance is located for several minutes

– contact Miele Technical Service

~

The more coolant there is in an appliance, the larger the room in which it should be installed. In the event of a leakage, there is the danger of combustible gases building up if the appliance is in a small room.

For every 8 g of coolant at least 1 m

3 of room space is required. The amount of coolant in the appliance is stated on the data plate inside the appliance.

~

To avoid the risk of damage to the appliance, make sure that the connection data (fuse rating, frequency and voltage) on the data plate corresponds to the household supply.

Check that this is the case before connecting the appliance. Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.

~

Be certain your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician. To guarantee the electrical safety of this appliance, continuity must exist between the appliance and an effective grounding system. It is imperative that this basic safety requirement be met. If there is any doubt, have the electrical system of the house checked by a qualified electrician.

5

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

~

If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a Miele authorized technician in order to protect the user from harm.

~

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.

~

The right temperature

It is very important to set the correct temperature for storing food in the appliance. Bacteria will cause food which is not stored at the correct temperature to deteriorate rapidly.

To freeze fresh food and to store frozen food for a long time, a temperature of

0°F (-18°C) is required. Partially defrosted or fully defrosted food must not be re-frozen. Food may be re-frozen once it has been cooked.

The temperature in the appliance will rise for the following reasons:

– if you open the door frequently or keep it open too long,

– if you put too much food in it,

– if you put food in it that is too warm,

– if the room temperature is too high.

The appliance is designed for use within a certain climate range (room temperature range) and should not be used outside this range.

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

However, if the temperature in the freezer remains above 0°F (-18°C) for a long time, check that the frozen food has not started to defrost. If it has, check that the food is safe to use and if it is, then use it as soon as possible or cook it before freezing it again.

Temperature alarm

If the freezer temperature becomes too warm, the alarm symbol

; for the freezer flashes in the display and an alarm will also sound.

The point in time at which the appliance detects a temperature range as too warm depends on the selected temperature.

The audio and visual signals are triggered, for example:

– when the appliance is turned on and the temperature in the freezer differs greatly from the set temperature,

– when too much warm air flows into the appliance, for example, when food is being re-arranged or taken out,

– when freezing large amounts of food at once,

– when there is a loss of power,

– when the appliance is defective.

The alarm will stop and the alarm symbol ; will go out as soon as the temperature has dropped down to the correct level again.

29

Freezing and storing food

Always follow USDA guidelines on food safety.

WARNING!

Danger of fire

Do not use electrical appliances inside the food storage compartments of the appliance, unless they are of the type recommended by the manufacturer.

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 ....Ibs/24 hrs."

Freezing food

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.

Never re-freeze partially or fully defrosted food. Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

Before placing food in the freezer

^ When freezing more than

4.5 lb (2 kg) of fresh food, turn on the

SuperCool function some time before placing food in the freezer (see

"Using SuperCool").

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

Placing food in the freezer

The following maximum loading weights must not be exceeded:

– Top freezer drawer = 11 lb (5 kg)

– Freezer drawer = 55 lb (25 kg)

– Shelf = 77 lb (35 kg)

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

^ When placing items in the freezer, ensure that the packaging and containers are dry to prevent them from sticking together when frozen.

– Freezing small amounts of food

Place the food in the upper freezer drawers.

^ Place the food flat in the bottom of the freezer drawer so that it freezes through to the core as quickly as possible.

30

When removing the upper freezer drawers, please note:

The bottom drawer must always remain in the appliance.

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

– Freezing the maximum amount

(see data plate)

^ Remove the upper freezer drawers.

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

Once frozen:

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

– Large items

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

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

Freezing and storing food

Defrosting

Frozen food can be thawed in various ways:

– in the microwave

– at room temperature

– in the refrigerator (as it thaws, the frozen food will help cool the other food in the refrigerator)

– in a steam oven

Flat pieces of partially thawed meat or fish can be placed directly into a hot skillet.

Meat and poultry (e.g. hamburger, chicken, fish fillets) may not come into contact with other foods while defrosting. Catch the defrosting liquid and dispose of it carefully.

Fruit can be thawed at room temperature, either in the packaging or in a covered bowl.

Most vegetables can be cooked while still frozen. Just put straight into boiling water or hot fat. The cooking time is slightly less than that of fresh vegetables due to changes in the cell structure.

Never re-freeze partially or fully defrosted food. Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

31

Freezing and storing food

Cooling drinks quickly

When cooling drinks quickly in the freezer, make sure bottles are not left

in for more than one hour; otherwise they could burst.

Using the cool pack

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

^ Place the cool pack in the top drawer of the freezer section.

The cool pack will be at its most effective after it has been in the freezer for approx. 24 hours.

In the event of a power failure:

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

When placing fresh food in the freezer, use the cool pack to separate the fresh food from the food which is already frozen so that the frozen food does not begin to thaw.

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

32

Making ice cubes

For the automatic ice cube maker to operate it must be connected to the water supply.

Ice cube maker with integrated ice cube tray

Ventilation

WARNING! Danger of damage from overheating. May restrict operation.

Keep ventilation openings, in the appliance enclosure or in the built-in structure, clear of obstruction.

The ventilation gaps given must be observed, otherwise the compressor will run more frequently and for longer periods. This will result in increased energy consumption and a higher operating temperature for the compressor. This may, in turn, cause the compressor to be damaged.

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

"Installation dimensions"):

– Air intake a occurs via the plinth at the bottom of the appliance and the air escapes at the top b at the rear of the housing unit.

– A ventilation gap of at least 1 5/8"

(40 mm) depth must be provided behind the appliance for air to circulate.

– The ventilation cross-sections in the plinth, housing unit and above the appliance must amount to at least

78 3/4" 2 to ensure that air can circulate without obstruction.

– Important. The appliance uses less energy, the larger the ventilation cross-section.

The ventilation cross-sections must not be blocked or covered in any way.

They also need to be dusted/cleaned on a regular basis.

68
