Correct application
~This oven is intended for use in domestic households and similar
working and residential environments.
~The oven is not intended for outdoor use.
~It is intended for domestic use only to cook food, and in particular
to bake, roast, grill, cook, reheat, defrost and dry food.
Any other use is not supported by the manufacturer and could be
dangerous.
~Do not use the microwave combination oven to store or dry items
which could ignite easily.
If such items were dried in the microwave oven, the moisture in the
item would evaporate causing it to dry out and even self-ignite.
~People with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or
lack of experience or knowledge who are not able to use the
appliance safely on their own must be supervised whilst using it.
They may only use it unsupervised if they have been shown how to
use it safely and recognise and understand the consequences of
incorrect operation.

Safety with children
~Children under 8 years of age must be kept away from the
appliance unless they are constantly supervised.
~Children 8 years and older may only use the oven unsupervised if
they have been shown how to use it safely and recognise and
understand the consequences of incorrect operation.
~Children must not be allowed to clean or maintain the appliance
unsupervised.
~Please supervise children in the vicinity of the oven and do not let
them play with it.
~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.

~Danger of burning.
Children's skin is far more sensitive to high temperatures than that of
adults. External parts of the oven such as the door glass, control
panel and the vents become quite hot during use. Do not let
children touch the oven whilst it is in use.
~Danger of injury
The oven door can support a maximum weight of 8 kg. Do not let
children sit on the door, lean against it or swing on it.

Technical safety
~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.
~Never use a damaged oven. It could be dangerous. Check it for
visible signs of damage before using it.
~Operating a damaged appliance can result in microwave leakage
and present a hazard to the user. Do not use the appliance if:
– the door is warped,
– the door hinges are loose,
– holes or cracks are visible in the casing, the door, the door seal or
the oven interior walls.
~The electrical safety of this appliance 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.
~To avoid the risk of damage to the oven, make sure that the
connection data on the data plate (voltage and frequency) match
the mains electricity supply before connecting the oven to the
mains. Consult a qualified electrician if in doubt.
~Do not connect the appliance to the mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket unit or an extension lead. These do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (fire hazard).
Warning and Safety instructions

~For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used after it has
been built in.
~The oven must not be used in a non-stationary location (e.g. on a
ship).
~Tampering with electrical connections or components and
mechanical parts is highly dangerous to the user and can cause
operational faults.
Never open the casing of the appliance.
~While the appliance 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.
~If the connection cable is damaged or if the oven is supplied
without a cable, it must be replaced or fitted with a special
connection cable by a Miele authorised technician (see "Electrical
connection").
Warning and Safety instructions

~During installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply, e.g. if the
oven lighting is faulty (see "Problem solving guide" and "Electrical
connection").
~In order to function correctly, the oven requires an adequate
supply of cool air. Ensure that the supply of cool air is not impaired
(e.g. by heat insulation strips in the housing unit). Please also ensure
that the cool air supply is not unduly heated by other heat sources
such as a solid fuel stove.
~If the oven is installed behind a furniture panel (e.g. a door),
ensure that the door is never closed whilst the oven is in use. Heat
and moisture can build up behind a closed furniture panel and
cause subsequent damage to the oven, the housing unit and the
floor. Do not close the door until the oven has cooled down
completely.

Correct use
,Danger of burning.
The oven becomes hot when in use.
Depending on function being used, you could burn yourself on
the heating elements, oven interior, cooked food or oven
accessories.
Wear oven gloves when placing food in the oven, turning or
removing it and when adjusting oven shelves etc. in a hot oven.
~Due to the high temperatures radiated, objects left near the oven
when it is in use could start to burn.
Do not use the oven to heat up the room.
~Oil and fat can ignite if overheated. Never leave the oven
unattended when cooking with oil and fat. Do not use the oven for
deep fat frying.
Never use water to extinguish ignited oil or fat. Switch the oven off
immediately and then suffocate the flames by keeping the oven door
closed.
Warning and Safety instructions

~Please be aware that durations when using microwave power are
often considerably shorter when cooking, reheating and defrosting
than when using functions without microwave power. Excessively
long cooking times can lead to food drying out and burning or could
even cause it to catch fire.
Make sure you keep to recommended grilling times when using the
grill. Do not use Microwave solo _ for drying items such as flowers,
herbs, bread or rolls. Never use functions with the grill for bake-off
products such as bread or bread rolls, or for drying flowers or herbs.
Use Fan plus U for these procedures and monitor the process
carefully.
~If using alcohol in your recipes, please be aware that high
temperatures can cause the alcohol to vaporise. The vapour can
catch fire on hot heating elements.
~When using residual heat to keep food in the oven warm, the high
humidity and amount of condensation in the oven can cause
corrosion in the oven. The control panel, the worktop or the housing
unit can also suffer damage.
Always cover food when using the Microwave solo _. Once food is
cooked through, use a lower power for continued cooking to reduce
the amount of steam produced from the food.
When using residual heat do not switch the oven off. Instead set the
temperature to the lowest setting and leave the oven on the selected
function.
The fan will then remain on automatically and dissipate the moisture.
~Food which is stored in the oven or left in it to be kept warm can
dry out and the moisture released can lead to corrosion damage in
the oven.
Always cover food that is left in the oven to keep warm.
Warning and Safety instructions
14
Page: 14
~A build-up of heat can cause damage to the enamel on the floor
of the oven.
When using Fan plus U do not line the floor of the oven with
anything, e. g. aluminium foil or so-called protective liners. Neither
should you place roasting pans or glass trays directly on the oven
floor.
~It is important that the heat is allowed to spread evenly
throughout the food being cooked. This can be achieved by stirring
and/or turning the food, and observing a sufficiently long standing
time, which should be added to the time needed for cooking,
reheating or defrosting.
~When heating food and drinks, remember that the heat is created
in the food itself, and that the container will normally be cooler. The
dish is only warmed by the heat of the food.
Before serving, remember to allow a sufficient standing time and
then always check the temperature of the food after taking it out of
the microwave oven. The temperature of the container is not an
indication of the temperature of the food or liquid in it. This is
particularly important when preparing food for babies, children,
and the elderly or infirm. Shake or stir baby milk and food
thoroughly after heating, and try it for temperature to ensure that it
will not scald the baby.
~The oven is not suitable for cleaning or disinfecting items. Items
can get extremely hot and there is a danger of burning when the
item is removed from the appliance.
~Do not cook or reheat food or liquids in sealed containers, jars or
bottles. With baby bottles, the screw top and teat must be removed.
Otherwise pressure will build up which can cause the bottle or
container to explode, posing a severe risk of injury.
Warning and Safety instructions
15
Page: 15
~The boiling rod ensures that the liquid heats up evenly with
bubbles forming at the right time.
When reheating liquids, always place the boiling rod supplied into
the cup or glass.
When boiling and in particular when re-heating liquids, milk, sauces
etc, using microwave power without the boiling rod, the boiling point
of the liquid may be reached without the production of typical
bubbles. The liquid does not boil evenly throughout. This so-called
'boiling delay' can cause a sudden build up of bubbles when the
container is removed from the oven or shaken. This can lead to the
liquid boiling over suddenly and explosively. Danger of scalding and
burning. The formation of bubbles can be so strong that the
pressure forces the oven door open, with a danger of injury and
damage. The user could be injured and the appliance damaged.
~Eggs can be cooked without their shells using microwave power
only if the yolk membrane has been punctured several times first.
The pressure could otherwise cause the egg yolk to explode.
Warning and Safety instructions
16
Page: 16
~Eggs in their shells will explode if cooked with microwave power,
even after taking them out of the oven.
They can only be cooked in their shells using microwave heat in a
specially designed egg-boiling device available from specialist
shops. Hard-boiled eggs must not be reheated in the microwave
oven either as they too will explode.
~Food with a thick skin or peel, such as tomatoes, sausages,
jacket potatoes and aubergines, should be pierced or cut in several
places to allow steam to escape and prevent the food from bursting.
~To check food temperature, first interrupt the cooking process.
Only use a thermometer specifically approved for food use to
measure the temperature of the food. Do not use a thermometer
containing mercury or liquid as these are not suitable for use with
very high temperatures and break very easily.
~Do not use the oven to heat up cushions or pads filled with cherry
kernels, wheat grains, lavender or gel, such as those used in
aromatherapy.
These pads can ignite when heated even after they have been
removed from the oven.
~To avoid fuelling any flames, do not open the oven door if smoke
occurs inside the appliance. Interrupt the process by switching the
appliance off and disconnect it from the mains electricity supply. Do
not open the door until the smoke has dispersed.
~Dishes with hollow knobs or handles are not suitable for use with
microwave power. Moisture which has gathered in the hollow
recesses can cause pressure to build up and the item can explode.
If the hollow recess is sufficiently ventilated, the item could be used.
However, we recommend that you do not use such dishes in the
microwave oven.
Warning and Safety instructions
17
Page: 17
~Fire hazard. Using Microwave solo _ or Microwave combination
programmes with plastic dishes which are not microwave safe can
cause them to melt and damage the appliance. Do not use any
containers or cutlery made from or containing metal, aluminium foil,
lead crystal glassware, temperature-sensitive plastics, wooden
utensils or cutlery, metal clips or plastic or paper covered wire ties.
Do not use bowls with milled rims, or plastic pots with the foil lid only
partially removed (see "Suitable containers for microwave use").
~For functions without microwave power: plastic containers which
are not suitable for use in an oven can melt at high temperatures
and can even damage the oven or catch fire. Only use containers
which are declared by the manufacturer as being suitable for use in
an oven. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on use.
~Do not leave the microwave oven unattended when reheating or
cooking food in disposable containers made of plastic, paper or
other inflammable materials.
Before using single-use containers make sure they are suitable for
use in microwave ovens. See "Suitable containers for microwave use
- Plastics".
~Do not reheat food in the oven in heat-retaining bags which are
intended for use in normal ovens.
These heat-retaining bags usually contain a thin layer of aluminium
foil which reflects microwaves. This reflected energy can, in turn,
cause the outer paper covering to become so hot that it ignites.
Warning and Safety instructions
18
Page: 18
~The oven can suffer damage when using Microwave solo _ or
Combination programmes if it is empty or incorrectly loaded.
For this reason please do not use functions with microwave power to
pre-heat crockery or to dry herbs.
Instead use Fan plus U for these procedures.
~Do not heat up food in closed containers e.g. tins or sealed jars in
the oven, as pressure will build up in the container, causing it to
explode.
~You could injure yourself on the open oven door or trip over it.
Avoid leaving the door open unnecessarily.
~The door can support a maximum weight of 8 kg.
Do not sit on or lean against an open door, and do not place heavy
objects on it. Also make sure that nothing can get trapped between
the door and the oven cavity. The oven could get damaged.

Cleaning and care
~Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance.
The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short
circuit.
~Scratches on the door glass can result in the glass breaking. Do
not use abrasive cleaners, hard sponges, brushes or sharp metal
tools to clean the door glass.
~Try to avoid the interior walls being splashed with food or liquids
containing salt. If it does happen, wipe these away thoroughly to

reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Disposing of your old
appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also 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.
Ensure that it presents no danger to
children while being stored for
disposal.

System lock 0
The system lock prevents the oven from
being used unintentionally (see "System
lock 0").
The system lock will remain activated
even after an interruption to the power
supply.
Cooling fan
The cooling fan will come on
automatically when a cooking
programme is started. The cooling fan
mixes hot air from the oven cavity with
cool room air before venting it out into
the kitchen through vents located
between the appliance door and the
control panel.
The cooling fan will continue to run for a
while after a cooking process to
prevent moisture building up in the
oven, on the control panel or on the
oven housing unit. It will switch itself off
automatically after a while.
Safety switch-off
A function without microwave can be
started without selecting a cooking
duration. To prevent over-use and the
consequent danger of fire, the oven will
switch itself off automatically after a
certain length of time. This can be
between 1 hour and 12 hours
depending on the function and
temperature chosen.
If a combination programme is
followed in quick succession by
another programme using microwave
power, the magnetron (which produces
the microwaves) cannot be switched on
again until approx. 10 seconds have
elapsed. Therefore wait a short while
before starting the second process.

Your oven has a range of oven
functions for preparing food.
Functions which do not use
microwave energy
Grill Y
For grilling thin cuts (e.g. steaks) and
browning baked dishes.
Defrost P
For the gentle defrosting of frozen food.
Rapid heat-up S
For pre-heating the oven quickly.
The oven function required must then
be selected.
Fan plus U
This function is used for baking and
roasting on different levels at the same
time.
A lower temperature can be selected
than when using other functions,
because the fan distributes the heat to
the food straight away.
Fan grill \
For grilling thicker cuts of meat
(e. g. roulades, chicken). Lower
temperatures can be used than when
using the Grill Y function, as the fan
distributes the heat to the food straight
away.
Auto roast [
This is used for roasting at a high
temperature and continued cooking at
a lower temperature.
During the searing phase the oven
heats up to a high temperature (230°C)
to seal the meat and keep it succulent
and tasty. As soon as this temperature
has been reached, the oven
temperature automatically drops back
down to the pre-selected temperature
for continued roasting.
Gentle bake K
Ideal for cooking bakes and gratins that
need to be crispy on top.
Overview of functions

Microwave solo _
This function is used to rapidly defrost,
reheat and cook food
Microwave combination
programmes
With Microwave combination
programmes the heating element and
the magnetron switch on and off
alternating one after the other. The
heating element browns the food and
the magnetron helps it cook quickly.
A maximum microwave power level of
300 W can be used with Microwave
combination programmes.
Microwave + Fan plus a
For rapid reheating and cooking of
food, browning it at the same time.
This combination programme saves the
most time and energy.
When baking do not set the microwave
power higher than 150 W.
Microwave + Auto roast L
This is used for roasting at a high
temperature and continued cooking at
a lower temperature.
During the searing phase the oven
heats up to a high temperature (230°C)
to seal the meat and keep it succulent
and tasty. As soon as this temperature
has been reached, the oven
temperature automatically drops back
down to the pre-selected temperature
for continued roasting.

How it works
In a microwave combination oven there
is a high-frequency tube called a
magnetron. This converts electrical
energy into microwaves. These
microwaves are distributed evenly
throughout the oven interior, and
rebound off the metal sides of the oven
interior to reach the food from all sides.
In order for microwaves to reach the
food, they must be able to penetrate
the cooking utensil being used.
Microwaves can penetrate porcelain,
glass, cardboard and plastics, but not
metal. Do not, therefore, use utensils
made of metal, or which contain metal,
for example in the form of gold or silver
trim. The metal reflects the microwaves
and this could cause sparking. The
microwaves cannot be absorbed.
Microwaves pass through a suitable
container and find their way directly into
the food. All food contains moisture
molecules which, when subjected to
microwave energy, start to oscillate 2.5
thousand million times a second. The
friction caused by this vibration creates
heat, which first starts developing
around the outside of the food and then
slowly penetrates towards the centre.
The moisture, fat and sugar content of
food will affect the speed at which it is
cooked. The more water a food
contains, the quicker it is to reheat or
cook.
As heat is produced directly in the
food,
– food can generally be cooked
without adding much liquid or
cooking oil.
– cooking, reheating and defrosting is
quicker than using conventional
methods.
– nutrients, such as vitamins and
minerals, are generally retained.
– the colour, texture and taste of food
are not impaired.
Microwaves stop being produced as
soon as the cooking process is
interrupted or the appliance door is
opened.
When the appliance is in operation, the
closed, sealed door prevents
microwaves escaping from the
appliance.
Power levels
The following power levels can be
selected:
80 W, 150 W, 300 W, 450 W, 600 W,
850 W, 1000 W

Microwaves are reflected by metal,
pass through glass, porcelain, plastic
and card,
and are absorbed by food.
Fire hazard. Non-microwave safe
dishes can suffer damage or
damage the oven if used with
Microwave solo _ or Microwave
combination programmes.
The material and shape of the
containers used affect cooking results
and times.
Heat distribution is more even in round
and oval shaped flat containers than in
rectangular containers, providing better
results.
Suitable containers for
microwave use
Glassware
Heat-resistant glass or ceramic glass
are ideal for use with microwave power.
Exception: Do not use crystal glass
as it contains lead which can crack
or shatter in a microwave oven.
Porcelain
Porcelain is a suitable material.
Exception: Do not use porcelain with
gold or silver edging or items with
hollow knobs or handles, as
insufficient ventilation may cause a
build-up of pressure.
Suitable containers for microwave use

Earthenware
Decorated earthenware is only suitable
if the decoration is beneath an all-over
glaze.
Danger of burning. Wear oven
gloves when removing earthenware
dishes from the oven.
Plastics
Plastic containers and plastic
disposable containers may only be
used for Microwave solo _ if they
have been declared as suitable for
microwave use by the manufacturer. To
protect the environment it is best to
avoid using single-use containers.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when reheating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of
plastic, paper or other inflammable
materials.
Plastic containers must only be used
with Microwave solo _. They must
not be used with Microwave
combination programmes. They
must be heat-resistant to a minimum
of 110 °C.
Otherwise the plastic may melt and
fuse with the food.
– Plastic microwave containers
These are readily available from retail
outlets.
– Styrofoam containers
Styrofoam containers can be used for
short, timed warming and reheating of
food.
– Plastic "Boil-in-the-bag" bags
Plastic boiling bags can be used for
cooking and reheating. They should be
pierced beforehand so that steam can
escape.
This prevents a build-up of pressure
and reduces the risk of the bag
bursting.There are also special
steaming bags available which do not
need to be pierced. Please follow
instructions given on the packet.
– Roasting bags and tubes
Please follow the manufacturer's
instructions when using roasting bags
and tubes.
,Do not use metal clips, plastic
clips containing metal parts, or
paper ties containing wire. There is
a danger that they will ignite when
heated.
– Melamine containers
Melamine is not suitable for use in this
oven. Melamine absorbs microwave
energy and gets hot. When purchasing
plasticware, make sure that it is suitable
for use in a microwave oven.
