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.

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 coolant
can damage the eyes.

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.
The temperature in the appliance will
rise:
– the more often the door is opened
and the longer it is kept open,
– the more food that is stored in the
appliance,
. . . in the freezer section
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 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.
. . . in the refrigerator section
We recommend a temperature of 5 °C
in the middle of the refrigerator.

The correct temperature
Setting the temperature
The temperature for the refrigerator
section is set using the temperature
dial.
The higher or lower the temperature in
the refrigerator section, the higher or
lower it is in the freezer section.
The temperature can be set slightly
colder than the displayed temperature
(e.g. between 5°C and 3 °C).
^ To do so, turn the temperature dial
slowly in a clockwise direction from
e.g. 5, until the 5 flashes briefly in the
temperature display.
The colder temperature is now set.
^ Using a coin, turn the On/Off dial in a
clockwise direction away from the "0"
position.
The higher the setting, the lower the
temperature in the appliance.
The temperature being set will flash in
the display.
Forcing the dial beyond its range will
damage it. Turn it only as far as it
will go, then turn it back again.
If frozen food is to be stored in the
freezer section then a setting of
between 3 °C to 5 ° is recommended to
ensure that the required temperature in
the freezer section is maintained.
It is also advisable to set the
temperature within this range if the
doors are opened frequently, large
quantities of food are being stored in
the appliance or there is a high ambient
temperature.
Freezer section temperature

The indicator light shows that the
freezer section is on.
Temperature display
The temperature display on the
control panel always shows the
required temperature.
For example, if you want to set the
temperature for the refrigerator section
at 5 °C,
^ turn the temperature selector
clockwise from 0 until 5°C lights up
on the control panel.

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 alarm
indicator light will flash if the
temperature in the freezer section
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,
Activating the alarm system
The alarm system is always active. It
does not have to be switched on
manually.
Switching the alarm off early
The alarm will stop and the indicator
light will go out when the temperature
reaches the correct level again.
However, if the noise disturbs you, you
can switch the alarm off before this if
you wish.
^ Press the alarm off button.
– 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.
The alarm will stop. The indicator
light will stay on until the correct
temperature has been reached. The
alarm system is then ready should it
be needed again.
– if there has been a lengthy
interruption to the power supply.
Depending on the temperature in the
freezer, you should check the condition
of the food. If food has defrosted or
started to defrost, check that it is still
safe to use, and if so, use it as quickly
as possible. Defrosted food may only
be re-frozen after it has been cooked.
Door alarm
The alarm will sound if the freezer
section door has been left open for
more than approx. 60 seconds.

Switch the Super freeze function on
before putting fresh food into the
freezer.
The Super freeze function will switch off
automatically after approx. 65 hours.
The indicator light will go out and the
appliance will run at normal power
again.
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

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.
When freezing small quantities of food
in the freezer, the Super freeze function
should be switched on 6 hours
beforehand. When freezing the
maximum load of food the Super
freeze function should be switched on
24 hours beforehand.
^ Press the Super freeze button. The
Super freeze indicator light will come
on.
The appliance works at full power to
lower the temperature in the
appliance.

Using the refrigerator efficiently
Different storage zones
Due to the natural circulation of the air
in the appliance, there are different
temperature zones in the refrigerator.
Cold, heavy air sinks to the lowest
section of the appliance. Make use of
the different zones when placing food
in the appliance.
– pre-packed vegetables and other
fresh food with a label stating it
should be kept at a temperature of
approx. 4 °C.
Warmest area
The warmest area is in the top section
of the door. Use this for storing butter
and cheese.
Coldest area
The coldest area in a refrigerator is
directly above the vegetable
containers.
Use this for all delicate and highly
perishable food, e.g.
– fish, meat, poultry,
Do not store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products
containing propellants (e.g. spray
cans). Danger of explosion.
If storing alcohol with a high
percentage proof, make sure it is
tightly closed, and store upright.
Do not store cooking oil in the
refrigerator door. Traces of oil can
cause stress cracks to occur in the
plastic components in the door.
Food must not touch the back wall of
the refrigerator, as it may freeze to
the back wall.
– sausage products, ready meals,
– dishes or baked goods containing
eggs or cream,
– fresh dough, cake mixtures, pizza or
quiche dough,
– soft cheese and other dairy
products,
Downloaded from Fridge-Manual.com Manuals
To allow air to circulate efficiently,
do not pack food too closely
together in the refrigerator. Do not
cover the fan in the rear wall of the
refrigerator, as this is essential for
keeping the appliance cool.
19
Using the refrigerator efficiently
Food which should not be
stored in a refrigerator
Not all food is suitable for refrigeration,
as some food is sensitive to cold.
Cucumbers, for example, become
glassy, aubergines bitter and potatoes
sweet. Tomatoes and oranges lose their
aroma, and the peel on citrus fruit
hardens.
Food which should not be stored in a
refrigerator includes:
– pineapple, pomegranate, bananas,
avocado, mangos, papaya, passion
fruit, citrus fruit
– fruit which is not yet ripe
– aubergines/egg plant, cucumbers,
potatoes, peppers/capsicum,
tomatoes, courgettes,
– some hard cheeses, e.g. Parmesan
When shopping for food
The freshness of food when first placed
in the appliance is an important factor
in determining how long it stays fresh,
and how long it can be kept in the
refrigerator. Time out of the refrigerator,
e.g. during transportation, should be
kept to a minimum. For example, do not
allow food to stay in a hot car for too
long. Once food has started to
deteriorate, this process cannot be
reversed. As little as two hours outside
the refrigerator can cause food to start
deteriorating.
Storing food correctly
Food should generally be stored
covered or packaged. This will prevent
food smells from affecting other foods,
food from drying out, and also any
cross-contamination of bacteria. The
growth of bacteria, such as salmonella,
can be avoided by setting the correct
temperature and maintaining good
standards of hygiene.
Fruit and vegetables
Fruit and vegetables may be stored
loose in the vegetable containers.
Please be aware that not all types of
fruit and vegetables are suitable for
storing in the same container. Aromas
and flavours can transfer from one type
of food to another (e.g. carrots absorb
the smell and flavour of onions very
easily). Some food also gives off a
natural gas (ethylene) which speeds up
the rate at which other food perishes.
– Examples of fruit and vegetables
which produce a large amount of
this natural gas are:
Downloaded from Fridge-Manual.com Manuals
20
Apples, apricots, pears, nectarines,
peaches, plums, avocado, figs,
blueberries, melons and beans.
Using the refrigerator efficiently
– Examples of fruit and vegetables
which react strongly to the natural
gases given off by other types of
fruit and vegetables are:
Kiwis, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels
sprouts, mangos, honeydew melons,
apples, apricots, cucumbers,
tomatoes, pears, nectarines and
peaches.
Example: Broccoli should not be
stored with apples, as apples
produce a large amount of natural
gas to which broccoli is very
sensitive. The result is a shorter than
expected storage time for the
broccoli.
Meat
Meat should be stored unwrapped.
(Undo wrappings slightly to leave meat
loosely covered, and leave containers
open). This permits air to circulate
around the meat, allowing the surface
to dry slightly, which helps prevent the
growth of bacteria. To prevent the risk
of bacterial cross-contamination and
meat deteriorating, do not let one type
of meat come into direct contact with
another type.
Unpacked meat and vegetables
Unpackaged meat and vegetables
should be stored separately. To avoid
any microbiological crosscontamination, these foods may only be
stored together if they are wrapped.
Protein rich foods
Please note that foods rich in protein
deteriorate faster than others.
Shellfish, for example, deteriorates
faster than fish, and fish deteriorates
faster than meat.

Adjusting the interior fittings
Moving the shelves
The shelves can be adjusted according
to the height of the food.
^ Raise the shelf, and pull it forwards
slightly until the notch at the side is in
line with the shelf support. It can then
be raised or lowered to the required
level.
The raised edge at the back must face
upwards to prevent food from touching
the back of the appliance and freezing
to it.
Stoppers prevent the shelves from
being dislodged by mistake.
Split shelf
In order to accommodate tall items in
the appliance, one of the shelves is
divided. The front section can be
pushed under the rear section.
^ Push the rear half of the glass shelf
up slightly from below.
^ fit the two brackets onto the supports
on either side at the required height,
^ and push the glass shelves in one
after the other.
The shelf with the raised edge must
be at the back.
Adjusting the door shelf/bottle
shelf
^ Push the door/bottle shelf upwards,
then remove it by pulling it forwards.
^ Replace the door/bottle shelf at the
required position. Ensure that it is
securely pushed back into position.
^ At the same time, pull the front half of
the glass shelf forwards slightly and
then push it carefully under the rear
half.
To move the split shelf:
^ Take both halves of the split glass
shelf out,

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
– that the packaging is not damaged,
– the use-by date,
Freezing fresh food
– 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.
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.
^ 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.
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.
^ Store it in the freezer as soon as
possible.
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.
Downloaded from Fridge-Manual.com Manuals
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.

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
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.

Freezing and storing food
^ Make a note of the contents and the
date of freezing on the packaging.
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.
Before placing food in the freezer
section
^ 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.
Placing food in the freezer
Food to be frozen can be placed
anywhere in the freezer.
Large quantities should be placed
directly on the glass cold plates to
freeze the food quickly. To do this first
take out the top two freezer drawers.
When removing the top 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 lowest freezer drawer must always
remain in the appliance.
Each drawer and glass cold plate
can take a maximum of 25 kg.
^ Place the food flat in the bottom of
the freezer 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.
Freezing large items
If you wish to freeze large items such
as a turkey or game, the glass cold
plates between the drawers can also
be removed. To do this:
^ Remove the top two freezer drawers,
and carefully lift and slide out the
glass cold plates.
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 the
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.

Freezing and storing food
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. 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.
Freezer tray
The freezer tray is useful for freezing
small items such as berries, herbs and
vegetables. They can be frozen
individually and therefore maintain their
shape when defrosted.
^ Space the food out loosely on the
tray.
Ice cubes
^ Hang the tray in the top or middle
freezer drawer.
^ Fill the ice tray three quarters full with
water, and place it in the bottom of
one of the 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.
^ 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 placing bottles in the freezer
section for rapid cooling, make sure
they are not left in for more than one
hour as they could burst.

Freezing and storing food
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 top drawer of
the freezer section, directly on top of
the food. 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.

Automatic defrost
Refrigerator section
Freezer section
The refrigerator defrosts automatically.
This appliance is equipped with a "Frost
free" system. The freezer section
defrosts automatically.
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the refrigerator section
whilst it is in use. You do not need to
remove this, as it will defrost and
evaporate automatically with the
warmth generated by the appliance.
The condensate is drained away via a
channel and drain hole into an
evaporation system at the back of the
appliance.
The moisture generated in the
appliance collects on the condenser
and is automatically defrosted and
dissipated from time to time.
This automatic defrosting system
enables the freezer section to remain
permanently ice-free, however, the food
stored in the freezer section will not
defrost.
Ensure that the condensate channel
and drain hole are kept clean and
are never blocked so that
condensate can flow away without
hindrance.

Installation
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
centre.
This appliance is designed for use
within certain climate ranges (ambient
temperatures), and should not be used
outside this range. The climate range of
the appliance is stated on the data

Operating in a room which is too cold
will result in the cooling system
switching off for too long, causing the
internal temperature in the appliance to
rise with the risk of frozen 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.
The air inlet to the appliance is via the
plinth in the housing unit.
A ventilation gap of at least 38 mm
depth must be allowed for behind the
appliance for air to circulate.
The cross-sectional area for ventilation
in the plinth and the housing unit and
also beneath the ceiling needs to be at
least 200 cm2 throughout to ensure that
warm air can be drawn through
unhindered. Otherwise the appliance
has to work harder, resulting in an
increase in electricity consumption.
