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 machine
Electrical and electronic machines
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 machine.
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.

This coffee machine conforms with
all current safety requirements.
Improper use can, however, lead to
personal injury and damage to
property.
To avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the machine, please
read these instructions carefully
before using it for the first time.
They contain important notes on its
installation, safety, operation and
care.
Keep these instructions in a safe
place and pass them on to any
future owner.
Correct application
~ This coffee machine is not designed
for commercial use. It is intended for
use in domestic households and in
similar working and residential
environments such as:
– Shops
– Offices and showrooms
and by residents in establishments
such as:
– Hostels and guest houses.
Should it be used in such
environments, it must be used as a
domestic appliance and only for the
preparation of (a maximum of 20 cups
a day of) espresso, cappuccino, latte
macchiato etc.
The coffee machine is not intended for
outdoor use.
Any other usage is not supported by
the manufacturer and could be
dangerous. Miele cannot be held liable
for damage resulting from incorrect or
improper use or operation.
~ This coffee machine is not intended
for use by people with reduced
physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience or
knowledge, unless they are supervised
whilst using it or have been shown how
to use it correctly by a person
responsible for their safety.
Safety with children

temperatures. The coffee spouts
and the cappuccinatore present a
danger of burning or scalding.
~ Install the coffee machine where it is
out of the reach of children.
~ Keep children away from the
machine at all times. It is not a toy! To

Page: 8
Technical safety
~ Before setting up the machine,
check it for any externally visible
damage. Never use a damaged
machine. Danger of injury.
~ To avoid the risk of damage to the
machine, make sure that the rating on
the data plate corresponds to the
voltage and frequency of the household
supply, before connecting the machine
to the mains supply. Consult a qualified
electrician if in any doubt.
~ The electrical safety of this machine
can only be guaranteed if correctly
earthed. It is most important that this
basic safety requirement is observed
and regularly tested and where there is
any doubt, the household wiring system
should be inspected by a qualified
electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for damage or injury caused by the
inadequacy of an effective earthing
system (e.g. electric shock).
~ Built-in versions of this machine
must only be operated when installed in
a suitable housing unit, to ensure that
all electrical components are shielded.
Ensure power is not supplied to the
machine until after installation, repair
work or maintenance work has been
carried out.
~ Do not connect the machine to the
mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket adapter or an extension
lead.
These do not guarantee the required
safety of the machine (e.g. danger of
overheating).
~ If the appliance is installed behind a
kitchen furniture door, it must not be
used with the door closed. Do not close
the furniture door while the coffee
machine is in use.
~ The coffee machine must not be
used in a non-stationary location (e.g.
on a ship).
~ Installation work and repairs may
only be carried out by suitably qualified
and competent persons in strict
accordance with current local and
national safety regulations. Repairs and
other work by unqualified persons
could be dangerous and the
manufacturer will not be held liable.
~ While the machine is under
guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a service technician
authorised by the manufacturer.
Otherwise the guarantee will be
invalidated.
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. The manufacturer can only
guarantee the safety of the appliance
when Miele replacement parts are
used.
~ The machine is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
when:
– the mains fuse is disconnected,
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable),
– it has been switched off at the wall
socket and the plug has been
withdrawn.
Warning and Safety instructions

Page: 9
~ Never open the outer casing of the
machine. Tampering with electrical
connections or components and
mechanical parts is highly dangerous
to the user and can cause operational
faults or electric shock.
~ If the coffee machine is to be built in
above another appliance, there must
be a full-width, closed shelf between
them (except when it is combined with
a Miele built-in plate warming drawer).
~ In areas which may be subject to
infestation by cockroaches or other
vermin, pay particular attention to
keeping the machine and its
surroundings in a clean condition at all
times. Any damage which may be
caused by cockroaches or other vermin
will not be covered by the guarantee.
Correct use
Caution. Danger of scalding and
burning. The liquids dispensed are
very hot.
Never look directly at the lighting or
use optical instruments to look at it.
~ Do not reach into the brew unit when
the machine is connected to the
electricity supply. Danger of inury.
~ The water piping and the
cappuccinatore (milk frother) must be
rinsed through and the machine cleaned
thoroughly before the first drink is
prepared.
~ Only cold, fresh tap water should be
used to fill the water container. Warm or
hot water or other liquids could damage
the machine. Change the water every
day to prevent a build-up of bacteria.
~ Do not on any account use mineral
water. Mineral water will cause serious
limescale deposits to build up in your
machine and damage it.
~ Do not use water from a reverse
osmosis system in this machine. This
would damage it.
~ Do not put anything other than
Nespresso coffee capsules in the
capsule carousel. Other manufacturers'
capsules etc. would damage the
machine.
~ The coffee capsules must be intact
before use. Do not use coffee capsules
which are damaged, broken or dented.
These could become jammed in the
machine and damage it.
Warning and Safety instructions
10
Page: 10
~ Do not use milk with additives.
Sugar additives would stick to the milk
pipework and damage the coffee
machine and the cappuccinatore.
~ Never place a drink with ignited
alcohol under the spout of the coffee
machine. The flames could ignite
plastic components and cause fire
damage.
~ Hot water and steam could cause
scalding. Be very careful when using
these functions. Make sure you do not
come into contact with steam or hot
water. The machine must not be used
for cleaning objects.
~ Always switch the coffee machine
off with the master switch before
cleaning the interior. Danger of injury.
~ Do not clean the inside of the
capsule plate opening. Danger of inury.
~ Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
this machine. Steam could reach the
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
~ Clean the machine every day to
prevent a build-up of bacteria. All parts
except the capsule plate and the
plastic grille are dishwasher safe.
~ Water in the drip tray can be very
hot. Take great care when emptying it.
Danger of scalding.
~ The machine should be descaled
regularly, depending on the hardness
of the water, with the descaling tablets
supplied. The harder the water, the
more often the machine must be
descaled. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for damage arising from
insufficient descaling.
~ Only use the descaling tablets
supplied by Miele and follow the
instructions on the packet carefully.
Use the exact proportions
recommended. Otherwise the machine
will be damaged.
~ How quickly the capsule plate
becomes soiled will depend on the fat
content of the coffee used. We
recommend that you clean the capsule
plate every 1 to 2 months with a
cleaning tablet.
~ Never swing from or hang anything
on the machine front when it is open as
this could damage the machine.
~ The machine is designed to be used
in areas with an ambient temperature of
+15 °C to +60 °C. Please do not use it
anywhere with an ambient temperature
outside this range.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

The capsule carousel can hold up to 20
coffee capsules. These 20 coffee
capsules are divided between 5
chambers. This means that the capsule
carousel can be filled with 5 different
types of coffee. These 5 different types
are programmed into the machine so
that the type required can be selected
from the display.
If the machine is used by various
people with different tastes and
preferences, you can programme
specific settings for up to nine
individual users (User profiles).
There is no need to remove each
individual spent capsule, as the used
coffee capsules drop down
automatically into a waste container.
The coffee capsules can be disposed
of with your normal household waste.
The size of cup can be programmed in
so that the correct amount is
dispensed. If the cup being used has a
smaller capacity than the programmed
portion size, preparation can be halted
at any time by touching the OK sensor.
If two cups of coffee or espresso are
required at the same time, the OK
sensor has to be touched twice briefly.
The machine will fill the two cups one
after the other, with a slight pause in
between.
The machine features a system lock to
prevent children from operating the
machine.
The easy-to-use programming facility
allows, amongst other things, the
language in the display to be changed
and the water hardness to be
programmed in.
To ensure that the flavour can develop
fully and be maintained for longer the
machine has an additional function for
automatically rinsing the system
when the machine is cold. The same
function is used to flush coffee remains
out of the system and the spout after
use.
So that the machine remains ready for
use but does not use electricity
unnecessarily, it will switch into Energy
saving mode after a programmable
length of time.
If you wish the machine to switch on or
off at a certain time, you can
programme the machine accordingly.

The coffee machine must be
cleaned thoroughly (see "Cleaning
and care") before you fill it with water
and coffee capsules.
It is vital that you programme in
the water hardness level of your
water (see "Customising your
machine - Setting the water
hardness").
Filling the water container
The quality of the water plays
an important part in the
overall quality of the coffee.
The water container should therefore be
emptied and filled with fresh tap water
every day.
Hot water and other liquids could
damage the machine. Only use
cold, clean tap water and fill the
machine every day. Do not on any
account use mineral water. Mineral
water will cause serious limescale
deposits to build up in your machine
and damage it.
^ Open the front of the machine.
^ Lift the water container up and pull it
forwards to remove it.
^ Fill the water container with cold,
clean tap water up to the "Max."
mark.
A valve at the front of the water
container will ensure that water
cannot escape.
^ Push the water container fully back
into the machine.
Filling the machine with water and coffee capsules
15
Page: 15
Filling the capsule carousel
Do not put anything other than
Nespresso coffee capsules in the
capsule carousel.
Do not use coffee capsules which
are damaged, broken, dented or
bent up at the edges. They can get
stuck in the machine.
The capsule carousel has
five chambers, each holding
four capsules. It is important
to allocate the chambers correctly (see
"Allocating and saving a coffee type").
You can fill all the chambers with the
same type of coffee, if wished.
Some of the chambers are allocated a
type of coffee at the factory. Fill the
chambers with the appropriate type of
coffee, or re-allocate the chamber for a
different type of coffee (see "Allocating
and saving a coffee type"). The
machine will then dispense the type of
coffee you select.
^ Pull the carousel runners a out as far
as possible.
^ Fill the chambers c in the capsule
carousel b with capsules. Make sure
you put them in correctly with the foil
facing downwards. You can take the
capsule carousel out by lifting it
upwards to fill it.
Please note that the individual
capsules sit loosely in the capsule
carousel to prevent them from
becoming jammed.
^ If you have removed the capsule
carousel, place it onto the carousel
runners before putting it back into the
machine. You do not have to position
it in a particular way, as the machine
will automatically guide it into
position.
^ Push the carousel runners fully back
into the machine.
^ Close the front of the machine.
The machine will now align the capsule
carousel. You will be able to hear this
happening.
Taking capsules out of the

Preparing hot milk, milk froth
and cappuccino
This machine comes with a
cappuccinatore (milk frother) which
makes it easy to prepare hot milk, milk
froth and cappuccino.
Before using the cappuccinatore for
the first time, clean it thoroughly,
preferably in the dishwasher (see
"Cleaning and care").
The cappucinatore must always be
assembled correctly with valve a
above the handle and the spout b at
the side.
The valve has two settings:
aTurn it anti-clockwise as far as it will
go to heat milk.
bTurn it clockwise as far as it will go to
froth milk.
Making drinks
18
Page: 18
Do not set the valve between these
two settings as this will cause the
milk to sputter.
Milk can be frothed and dispensed
straight into a cup, or heated or frothed
in the cappuccinatore jug first and then
poured manually into the cup. The
spout must be pushed in or pulled out:
– Milk spout pushed in: Milk will be
frothed and dispensed directly into
the cup
– Milk spout pulled out: Milk will be
frothed in the cappuccinatore jug
Heating the milk in the
cappuccinatore jug gives
you hotter milk.
Cold milk makes the best froth.
Do not use milk with additives.
Sugar additives would stick to the
milk pipework and damage the
coffee machine and the
cappucinatore.
Steam release is controlled by a
timer. If you do not get sufficient
froth in your cup and the steam jet
has stopped releasing steam,
please shut off the steam valve on
the machine. Press it downwards
again to reconnect it with the
cappuccinatore.
Dispensing froth directly into the cup
^ Push the spout into the lid as far as it
will go.
^ Turn the valve on the cappuccinatore
clockwise as far as it will go.
^ Fill the cappuccinatore a up to the
upper marker with cold milk and
replace the lid.
^ Place the cappucinatore into the
insert in the drip tray and place a
cappuccino cup underneath the
coffee spout b.
^ Press down the steam valve slowly
and carefully to connect it to the
cappuccinatore.
Making drinks
19
Page: 19
The steam valve must engage in the
lower position in order to connect
properly with the cappuccinatore.
^ When you have enough froth in the
cup push the steam valve upwards
again.
Preparing cappuccino
^ Dispense milk froth into the cup, as
described above.
^ Use the drink selection sensor to
select Espresso.
^ Touch the OK sensor once.
The espresso will be dispensed from
the coffee spout, and your cappuccino
is ready.
You can also prepare milk froth and
espresso at the same time. Making it
at the same time will, however, leave
the cappuccino looking a bit brown.
It is also harder to get the ratio of
coffee to milk right.
You can only make coffee and froth
at the same time if the steam system
is set up for this. See "Settings:
customising your machine - Setting
the Steam system").
Frothing milk in the cappuccinatore
^ Pull the spout out of the lid as far as it
will go.
^ Turn the valve on the cappuccinatore
clockwise as far as it will go.
^ Fill the cappuccinatore up to the
lower marker with cold milk and
replace the lid.
^ Place the cappuccinatore in the
insert in the drip tray.
^ Press down the steam valve a slowly
and carefully to connect it to the
cappuccinatore b.
The steam valve must engage in the
lower position in order to connect
properly with the cappuccinatore.
^ When you have sufficient froth push
the steam valve upwards again.

Preparing hot milk
^ Turn the valve on the cappuccinatore
anti-clockwise as far as it will go.
^ Fill the cappuccinatore up to the
upper marker with cold milk and
replace the lid.
^ Push the milk spout in as far as it will
go (for hot milk to be dispensed into
a cup) or pull the milk spout out (for
hot milk in the cappuccinatore jug)
and place the cappuccinatore in the
insert of the drip tray.
^ Press the steam valve slowly
downwards to connect it to the
cappuccinatore.
Heating and frothing milk in
the cappuccinatore jug gives
you hotter milk.
After preparing milk/Interim cleaning
If you want to use the
cappuccinatore again before
cleaning it thoroughly, e.g.
because there is some milk left in the
cappuccinatore, you can use the coffee
machine to rinse the lid. This will
remove any milk deposits.
Carrying out the rinsing programme
is not a substitute for cleaning it
thoroughly in the dishwasher.

Setting the water hardness
For trouble-free operation of the coffee
machine, and to ensure that the
descaling reminder appears in the
display at the appropriate time, it is
important to set the water hardness
level. The water hardness level
indicates how much calcium is
dissolved in the water. The higher the
calcium content, the harder the water,
and the harder the water, the more
often the machine will need to be
descaled.
The machine measures the amount of
water which has been taken in
(including the amount required for
producing steam). The amount of water
which the machine can use before it
needs to be descaled will depend on
the water hardness level set. Less
water will be used in hard water areas
than in soft water areas.
Your local water authority will be able to
tell you the hardness of water in your
area. Alternatively, you can measure
the hardness yourself using the
enclosed test strip:
^ Dip the strip in your drinking water for
approximately a second, then shake
off any excess water. The result will
be evident after about a minute.
Settings: Customising your machine
30
Page: 30
If the water is harder than
40°d/7.0 mmol/l, limescale will build
up more rapidy than with soft water.
Descaling will need to be carried out
more regularly than stated to
prevent limescale damage to the
machine.
The machine has four programmable
levels:
– Soft:
Local water hardness level 1
0-3°d (0-0.6 mmol/l)
Water through-flow: approx. 100 l
Steam through-flow: approx. 120
min.
– Medium:
Local water hardness level 1
4-7°d (0.7-1.3 mmol/l)
Water through-flow: approx. 80 l
Steam through-flow: approx. 90 min.
– Hard:
Local water hardness level 2
7-14°d (1.3-2.5 mmol/l)
Water through-flow: approx. 60 l
Steam through-flow: approx. 60 min.
– Very hard:
Local water hardness levels 3-4
14-21°d (2.5-3.8 mmol/l) or more
Water through-flow: approx. 40 l
Steam through-flow: approx. 30 min.
^ Select "Settings F" from the Main
menu, and then touch the OK sensor.
^ Use the arrow sensors to highlight
"Water hardness" and then touch the
OK sensor.

There are 16 different types of
Nespresso coffee available for use in
this machine (as well as occasional
"special" brands). They vary in terms of
taste, aroma and how they are roasted.
Preparation time also affects the taste.
Allocating the types of coffee
(Allocate type)
You can store five different types of
coffee in this machine (e.g. for five
different users with different tastes).
There are five chambers. Make sure
you put the different types of coffee in
the correct chambers. You can fill all
the chambers with the same type of
coffee if you wish.
Chamber symbols in the display
When a chamber has been allocated
with a type of coffee, a coffee bean
symbol will appear in front of the
chamber number in the main menu.
When you then select the particular
chamber with one of the arrow sensors,
the type of coffee in the chamber will
appear in the top line of the display.
If the chamber is empty a warning
triangle will appear after the coffee
bean symbol.
If the chamber has not been allocated
with a type of coffee a question mark
will appear after the coffee bean
regardless of whether the chamber is
full or empty. When the chamber is
selected "Empty" will appear in the top

Miele branded cleaning and
conditioning products are available
from the Miele Spare Parts Department
or via the internet on
www.miele-shop.com.
Always allow the machine to cool
down before cleaning. Please be
aware that the water in the drip tray
will be hot. Danger of scalding.
Before cleaning the interior, switch
the machine off with the master
switch (top left hand side). Danger
of injury!
Do not clean the inside of the
capsule plate opening. Danger of
injury.
Do not clean the machine with a
steam cleaner as this will damage
the machine.
Do not use cleaning agents
containing chlorides, acids, soda or
scouring agents. These would
damage the surface.
It is important to clean the machine
regularly, as the any coffee remains will
soon go mouldy.
All removable parts can be cleaned in
the dishwasher except for:
– The capsule plate
– The plastic grille
If the parts are cleaned frequently in a
dishwasher, they can become
discoloured from regular contact with
food residues (e.g. tomatoes).
Rinsing the system
Before switching the machine off for
any length of time, the pipework, brew
system, spout and steam valve need to
be cleaned.
If coffee has been dispensed, the
machine will carry out a short rinse
automatically before it switches off.
Place a suitable container under the
spout and the steam valve.
Maintenance
K1 K2 K3 K4 K5 L o n G k C
^ Use the right arrow sensor to
highlight the maintenance symbol
and then touch the OK sensor.
^ Select "Rinse the system" and touch
the OK sensor.
Water will run out of the spout.
^ Open the steam valve.
Water will run out of the steam valve.
^ Close the steam valve a few seconds
later.
The system has now been flushed
through and the machine can be
switched off.
Cleaning and care
43

Water container
Empty the water container daily and fill
with fresh, cold tap water just before
use.
When cleaning, make sure that there
is no soiling in the area around the
valve. Otherwise the container will
not sit correctly and this could result
in water leaking from the machine.
^ The water container can be cleaned
in the dishwasher or by hand using
hot water with a little washing-up
liquid.
Dry thoroughly after cleaning.
^ Clean the surface the water container
sits on thoroughly, taking special
care to clean the recesses properly.
Waste container
Clean the waste container daily. Coffee
remains can turn mouldy.
There will probably also be water in the
waste container left over from the
brewing and rinsing process.
^ Lift the waste container and pull it
forwards to remove.
Clean the waste container with hot
water and a little washing-up liquid or in
the dishwasher and dry with a cloth.
^ Clean inside the waste container
compartment, especially at the top
right and left hand sides near the
small window shapes (sensors). It is
important to keep these sensors
clean, as otherwise the machine will
not recognise the waste container is
present or that it requires emptying.
^ Push the waste container back into
the machine as far as it will go.
When you push the waste container
into the machine, you also push a
lever backwards. This tells the
machine that the waste container has
been put back. There will be a little
resistance as you do this. This is
quite normal.
Cleaning and care

Drip tray
There is a sensor in the drip tray which
causes a message to appear in the
display when the drip tray is full and
needs to be emptied. Remove the tray
and empty and clean it when this
message appears.
However, to avoid a build-up of odours,
the drip tray should be cleaned every
day.
After running the last rinse you
should leave the drip tray in position
for a while before cleaning it so that
you catch any remaining water from
the system.
Take care when removing the drip
tray as the water can be very hot.
Danger of scalding.
^ Open the machine front, and
carefully remove the drip tray from
the machine.
The grid in the drip tray prevents the
water from spilling out of the tray
when it is being carried.
^ Clean the drip tray and the grid with
hot water and a little washing-up
liquid, or in the dishwasher and dry
with a cloth.
Make sure that the metal contact
discs at the top of the drip tray are
cleaned and dried properly. These
metal discs send a signal to the
machine when the drip tray is full or
if it is not in the machine. The discs
will not convey these messages if
they are dirty or damp.
^ Push the drip tray with the grid along
the right hand edge back into the
machine.
^ Close the front of the machine.

pull forwards to remove b.
^ Clean the capsule carousel and
carousel runners with hot water and a
little washing-up liquid, or in the
dishwasher and dry with a cloth.
^ Also clean the area under the
carousel runners. It is particularly
important to clean the sensor which
is used to recognise the capsule
chambers as well as the recess in the
floor. After cleaning, dry with a soft
cloth.
^ To put the carousel runners back in,
place them on the guide rails and
push them into the machine until they
click into position.
^ Insert the capsule carousel. You do
not have to position it in a particular
way, as the machine will
automatically guide it into position.

Capsule plate
How quickly the capsule plate
becomes soiled will depend on the
content of natural oils in the coffee
used. It should be cleaned whenever
the machine is descaled or more often
if necessary using the cleaning tablets
supplied with the machine. (Make sure
you use the correct tablets - approx.
1 cm diameter, pack of 10). Cleaning
tablets are available from your Miele
Dealer, the Miele Spare Parts
Department, via the internet on
www.miele-shop.com, or from
Nespresso.
^ Press on the ribbed part a, and pull
the capsule plate b forwards to

^ Fill a small container with hot water
and dissolve one cleaning tablet
(approx. 1 cm diameter, pack or 10)
in it.
^ Place the capsule plate in the
cleaning solution and leave for
approx. one hour.
^ Once the coffee remains have been
removed, rinse it thoroughly and dry
it.
^ Push the capsule plate back into the
machine. It must click into position.
Steam valve
The small rubber sleeve which
connects the steam valve with the milk
frother can be removed for cleaning.
The sleeve and also the tip of the steam
valve underneath the sleeve should be
cleaned regularly.
^ Push the steam valve down and pull
the rubber sleeve off downwards.
^ Use a mild solution of hot water and
washing-up liquid to clean the rubber
sleeve and the tip of the steam valve.
^ Dry them and then put the sleeve
back onto the tip of the steam valve.
Make sure that the sleeve sits
securely onto the tip.
^ Push the steam valve back upwards.
If you forget to push it back up, it
could break when you shut the
machine front.

Cappuccinatore (milk frother)
The cappuccinatore can be dismantled
into several parts to clean it properly. It
is very important to clean the parts
thoroughly as otherwise the froth will
not be produced properly, if at all. It is
best to clean the cappuccinatore in a
dishwasher - all parts are
dishwasher-safe.
^ Dismantle the cappuccinatore lid and
clean all the parts.
You will not be able to pull the valve
out if the dot is set between the
symbols for hot milk and steam.
^ Reassemble the parts of the lid as
shown. In order to insert the valve
correctly the dot on the valve must be
at the top right-hand side.
Ensure that all parts have been
reassembled correctly and that
there is no gap between the two
parts of the lid.
Also make sure that the
reassembled lid is fitted onto the
cappuccinatore jug correctly. The
valve sits above the cappuccinatore
handle. If this is not the case, the
cappuccinatore will not operate
properly.

Machine front
If soiling is not removed promptly it
could cause the surface of the
machine to alter or discolour.
Remove any soiling immediately.
^ Switch the machine off with the
On/Off sensor.
^ Clean the front using a damp Miele
microfibre E-cloth or with a clean
sponge and a solution of hot water
and washing-up liquid. After
cleaning, dry with a soft cloth.
Make sure that water cannot get
behind the display.
All external surfaces are susceptible
to scratching. Scratches on glass
surfaces could even cause a
breakage.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can discolour the external
surfaces.
Wipe up any spillages or splashes
of descaling agent immediately.
Avoid the following on all types of
front:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
amonia, acids or chlorides,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– hard, abrasive sponges, e.g. pot
scourers, brushes or sponges which
have been previously used with
abrasive cleaning agents,
– melamine eraser blocks,
– sharp metal scrapers.
