 The wine conditioning unit is not suitable for storing and keeping cool medicines, blood plasma, laboratory preparations or other such materials or products. Incorrect use of the wine conditioning unit for such purposes can cause deterioration of the items stored. The wine conditioning unit is not suitable for use in areas where there is a risk of explosion.

Miele cannot be held liable for damage resulting from improper or incorrect use of the appliance.

 The wine conditioning unit can only be used by people with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, if they are supervised whilst using it, or have been shown how to use it in a safe way and recognise and understand the consequences of incorrect operation.

Safety with children

 Children under 8 years of age must be kept away from the wine conditioning unit unless they are constantly supervised.

 Children 8 years and older may only use the wine conditioning unit unsupervised if they have been shown how to use it safely and recognise and understand the consequences of incorrect operation.

5

Warning and Safety instructions

 Danger of suffocation. Packaging, e.g. plastic wrappings, must be kept out of the reach of babies and children. Whilst playing, children could become entangled in packaging or pull it over their head and suffocate.

Technical safety

 The coolant system is tested for leaks. The wine conditioning unit complies with statutory safety requirements and the appropriate EU guidelines.

 This wine conditioning unit 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 wine conditioning unit that no parts of the cooling system are damaged. Leaking coolant can damage the eyes.

In the event of any damage:

– avoid naked flames or anything which creates a spark,

– disconnect the appliance from the mains electricity supply,

– ventilate the room where the wine conditioning unit is located for several minutes, and

– contact the Miele Service Department.

Warning and Safety instructions

 The more coolant there is in a wine conditioning unit, 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 wine conditioning unit is stated on the data plate inside the appliance.

 To avoid the risk of damage to the wine conditioning unit, 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 wine conditioning unit. Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.

 The electrical safety of the wine conditioning unit can only be guaranteed when correctly earthed. It is essential that this standard safety requirement is met. If in any doubt please have the electrical installation tested by a qualified electrician.

 Reliable and safe operation of the wine conditioning unit can only be assured if it has been connected to the mains electricity supply.

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

 Do not connect the wine conditioning unit to the mains electrical supply by a multi-socket adapter or extension lead. These are a fire hazard and do not guarantee the required safety of the appliance.

 Do not use in a damp or wet environment (e.g. garage or utility room). Moisture could reach live components or the electrical connection and cause a short circuit.

Warning and Safety instructions

 This wine conditioning unit must not be used in a non-stationary location (e.g. on a ship).

 Do not use a damaged wine conditioning unit. It could be dangerous. Check the wine conditioning unit for visible signs of damage.

 For safety reasons, this wine conditioning unit may only be used after it has been built in.

 The wine conditioning unit must be isolated from the electricity supply during installation, maintenance and repair work.

 Unauthorised installation, maintenance and repairs can cause considerable danger for the user.

Installation, maintenance and repairs must only be carried out by a

Miele authorised technician.

 While the wine conditioning unit is under guarantee, repairs should only be undertaken by a Miele authorised service technician. Otherwise the guarantee is invalidated.

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

Correct use

 The wine conditioning unit is designed for use within a certain climate range (ambient temperatures), and should not be used outside this range. The climate range for your wine conditioning unit is stated on the data plate inside the appliance. Installing it in a room with too low an ambient temperature, e.g. a garage, will lead to the wine conditioning unit switching off for longer periods so that it cannot maintain the required temperature.

 Do not cover or block the air vents as this could impair the efficiency of the appliance, increase the electricity consumption and could cause damage to the components.

Warning and Safety instructions

 If the wine conditioning unit is used for storing food which contains fat or oil, make sure that it does not come into contact with plastic components as any spillages of oil or fat could cause stress cracks to the plastic and cause it to break or split.

 Do not store explosive materials in the wine conditioning unit or any products containing propellants (e.g. spray cans). Electrical components could cause flammable vapours to ignite. Danger of fire and explosion.

 Do not operate any electrical equipment (e.g. an electric ice cream maker) inside the wine conditioning unit. Danger of sparking and explosion.

 Only use genuine original Miele accessories and spare parts with this appliance. Using accessories or spare parts from other manufacturers will invalidate the guarantee, and Miele cannot accept liability.

Stainless steel appliances

 Adhesives will damage the stainless steel surface and cause it to lose its dirt-repellent protective coating. Do not use sticky notes, transparent adhesive tape, masking tape or other types of adhesive on the stainless steel surface.

 The surface is susceptible to scratching. Even magnets can cause scratching.

Cleaning and care

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

 Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this wine conditioning unit.

The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short circuit.

Warning and Safety instructions

 Sharp edged or pointed objects will damage the evaporator, causing irreversible damage to the wine conditioning unit. Do not use sharp edged or pointed objects to

– remove frost and ice,

– remove labels, stickers etc.

10

Warning and Safety instructions

Transporting the appliance

 Always transport the wine conditioning unit in an upright position and in its original transport packaging to avoid damage in transit.

 Danger of injury and damage. The wine conditioning unit is very heavy and must be transported by two people.

Disposing of your old appliance

 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.

 Splashes of coolant can damage the eyes. Be careful not to damage any part of the pipework whilst awaiting disposal, e.g. by

– puncturing the coolant channels in the condenser,

– bending any pipework, or

– scratching the surface coating.
