Does your old appliance have a different hinging mechanism?. Miele FN 35402 i, FNS 37402 i, FNS 35402 i, FN 37402 i | Manualzz

Does your old appliance have a different hinging mechanism?

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 longer required because the furniture door is now fitted to the appliance door.

All the necessary parts are supplied or can be ordered from Miele.

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.

– If the appliance door fouls an adjacent wall when opened, for example, the opening angle can be limited to 90°.

Installing the appliance

Two people are required to install the appliance.

^ Install the appliance in a stable, solid housing unit, positioned on an even and level floor.

^ Secure the housing unit against tipping.

To install the appliance, you will need the following tools :

^ Use a spirit level to align the housing unit.

The corners of the housing unit must be at a 90° angle to each other, otherwise the furniture door will not align correctly with all 4 corners of the housing unit.

^ The required ventilation cross-sections must be ensured (see

"Installation - Ventilation" and

"Building-in dimensions").

Installing the appliance

Parts required for installation

All installation parts are number coded.

This coding is also used in the installation instructions.

– required for installing the appliance in its housing unit:

– required for fitting the furniture door:

8 4

4 4

** Number depending on niche height.

Also contains additional installation parts for fitting large or divided furniture doors.

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.

Preparing the appliance

^ Position the appliance in front of the housing unit.

* These parts are only supplied with appliances with a niche height of 140 cm or more.

** Number depending on niche height.

Also contains additional installation parts for fitting large or divided furniture doors.

69

Installing the appliance

^

Push the appliance two-thirds of the way into its niche.

When doing this, make sure that the mains cable does not get trapped.

Tip to help you push it into position:

Tie a piece of string around the plug to

"increase" the length of the connection cable.

Then pull the cable by the end of the string through the housing unit. It will then be easier to connect once the appliance is in the unit.

With 16 mm thick unit walls:

^

Fit cover strip a into position.

^ Screw fixing bracket d using hex screw e to the pre-drilled holes in the appliance door. Using the pre-drilled holes in the appliance door, secure a second pair of fixing brackets d in the handle area of the door.

^

Clip spacers b and c on the right-hand side of the hinges.

^

Open the appliance door.

70

Installing the appliance

^

Remove cover f

.

^ Secure part g using screws h loosely into the top left-hand side of the appliance. Do not tighten the screws so that you can adjust the position of this part.

^

Fit stopper i onto fixing bracket j

.

^ Then screw fixing bracket j using screws k loosely into the bottom of the appliance. Do not tighten the screws so that you can adjust the position of this part.

^ Screw in adjustable feet l completely.

71

Installing the appliance

Installing the appliance

^ Push the appliance into the niche until all fixing brackets are in line with the front edge of the furniture side wall.

^

Carefully remove the protective foil from sealing strip m

.

^ Fix sealing strip m flush with the front of the appliance on the door opening side.

1. Position the sealing strip flush with the lower edge of the top fixing.

2. Stick it down along its entire length.

– n

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.

– o With 19 mm thick walls:

The front edges of the top and bottom hinges should be flush with the front edge of the housing side walls.

72

Installing the appliance

^

Check the position of the fixing bracket at the top and bottom front edge of the furniture side wall again.

This will create a gap all round of 42 mm to the front edges of the housing unit side walls.

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 .

^

Pull the appliance forwards by the appropriate dimension.

The hinges and covers will now protrude by the dimension of the door fitting.

Tip: Remove the door fittings. This will ensure that the door is flush with the surrounding kitchen unit furniture doors.

^ p Align the appliance on both sides by altering the adjustable feet using the spanner supplied.

If the all round gap of 42 mm is not maintained between the appliance housing and the front edge of the housing unit side wall, the door may not shut properly.

This can cause ice to build up, condensate to accumulate and lead to faults in the appliance. These can all lead to increased energy consumption.

Securing the appliance in the niche

^

Press the appliance against the side of the housing unit on the hinge side.

^ Screw chipboard screws s through the hinge plates at the top and bottom to secure the appliance to the housing unit.

73

Installing the appliance

^

Push the loose bracket against the furniture wall.

^ Secure fixing bracket j to the housing unit side wall with screw s

.

Drill holes in the housing unit side walls if necessary.

^

Secure fixing bracket g to the housing unit side walls using screws t . Drill holes in the housing unit side walls if necessary.

Important: Push the protruding bracket using your thumb towards the housing unit wall whilst tightening the screws. The appliance must not pull back into the unit.

^ Re-tighten screws h and k .

^

Snap off any protruding ends from the fixing bracket. They are no longer required.

^

Replace covers f and u on the fixing brackets.

74

Only for an appliance with a niche height greater than 140 cm

For additional stability of the appliance in the unit, push the rods supplied in underneath the appliance between it and the floor of the housing unit:

Installing the appliance

^ Then secure handle v to one of the rods w .

^

Use the handle to push the rod into the guide as far as it will go.

Remove the handle and fit it to the other rod and push this into its guide as far as it will go.

Important. Keep the handle somewhere safe in case you ever need to fit the appliance into a new housing unit.

^

Close the appliance door.
