Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials
which are environmentally friendly for
disposal and can normally be recycled.
Rather than just throwing these ma-
terials away, please ensure they are of-
fered for recycling.
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 appliance
Old appliances contain materials which
can be reclaimed or recycled. Please
contact your dealer, your waste collec-
tion centre or scrap merchant about
potential recycling schemes.
Make sure that the pipework is not dam-
aged whilst moving an old appliance.
This is to ensure that the refrigerant
and oil in the compressor cannot leak
into the environment. It is important that
they are disposed of in a safe manner
by authorised persons only.
Ensure that the appliance presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
See the appropriate section in the
Warning and safety instructions.

Warning and safety instructions
This appliance complies with all rele-
vant legal safety requirements. Im-
proper use of the appliance can,
however, present a risk of both per-
sonal injury and material damage.
Before installation and before using
for the first time, read the operating
instructions carefully. They contain
important notes on safety, the oper-
ation and care of the appliance.
This way you will avoid the risk of
accidents and damage to the ap-
pliance.
Keep these instructions in a safe
place and pass them on to any
future user.
Correct usage
This appliance is intended for do-
mestic use only for the cool stor-
age of foodstuffs.
Any other usage is not supported by
the manufacturer and could be dan-
gerous. The manufacturer cannot be
held responsible for damage caused
by improper use of the appliance.
Technical safety
This appliance contains the cool-
ant Isobutane (R600a), a natural
gas which is very environment friendly.
Although it is flammable, it does not
damage the ozone layer and does not
increase the green house effect. The
use of this environment friendly coolant
has however led to a slight increase in
the noise level of the appliance.
In addition to the noise of the com-
pressor you might be able to hear the
coolant flowing around the system. This
is unavoidable, but does not have any
adverse effect on the performance of
the appliance.
Care must be taken during transport-
ation and setting up of the appliance
that no parts of the cooling system are
damaged. Leaking coolant can dam-
age the eyes.
In the event of any damage:
– avoid open fires
and anything which creates a spark,
– disconnect from the mains,
– air the room in which the appliance is
located for several minutes and
– contact the Service Department
for advice.
The more refrigerant there is in an
appliance 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 combus-
tible gases building up.
For every 8 g of coolant at least 1 m3
room space is required. The amount of
coolant in the appliance is stated on
the data plate inside the appliance.
Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply, make sure that
the rating on the data plate corre-
sponds to the voltage and frequency of
the household supply.
This data must correspond in order to
avoid risk of damage to the appliance.
If in any doubt, consult a qualified elec-
trician.
Warning and safety instructions

Page: 6
The electrical safety of this ap-
pliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the appliance and an effective earthing
system which complies with local and
national safety regulations. It is most im-
portant that this basic safety require-
ment is tested by a qualified electri-
cian.
The manufacturer cannot be held re-
sponsible for the consequences of an
inadequate earthing system (e.g. elec-
tric shock).
Safe operation of the appliance is
only assured if it has been installed
and connected in accordance with
these operating and installation instruc-
tions.
This equipment is not designed for
maritime use or for use in mobile in-
stallations such as caravans, aircraft
etc. However, it may be suitable for
such usage subject to a risk assess-
ment of the installation being carried
out by a suitably qualified engineer.
Installation work, maintenance and
repairs may only be carried out by
suitably qualified and competent per-
sons.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous and the
manufacturer will not be held respon-
sible.
Ensure current is not supplied to
the appliance while maintenance
or repair work is being carried out.
The appliance is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
when:
– the plug has been withdrawn.
Do not pull on the cable, only on the
plug.
– the mains fuse is withdrawn.
– or the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance.
(e.g. danger of overheating).
Use
Never store explosive materials in
the appliance. Switching on
thermostats and the interior light may
produce sparks which could present a
fire hazard.
If storing alcohol with a high per-
centage proof, make sure it is
tightly closed and stored upright.
Danger of explosion.
Observe the “use by” dates given
on food to avoid the risk of food
poisoning.
Storage times will depend on several
factors including the freshness and
quality of the food as well as the tem-
perature at which it is stored. Follow
the instructions given on food manufac-
turer’s packaging on storage conditions
required as well as the “use by” date.
Warning and safety instructions

Do not use sharp edged
objects to
– remove frost and ice,
– separate frozen foods and remove
ice trays.
They will damage the evaporator and
the appliance will not be able to be
used again (total damage).
Never place electric heaters or
candles in the appliance to defrost
it. These can damage the plastic parts.
Do not use defrosting sprays, or
de-icers as they could contain sub-
stances which could damage the plas-
tic parts and which may cause the
build up of gases and pose a danger
to health.
Do not use any grease or oil on the
door seals. These cause the seals
to become porous in the course of time.
Do not block the ventilation gaps
in the appliance as this would im-
pair the efficiency of the appliance, in-
crease the electricity consumption and
could cause damage to the appliance.
The appliance is designed for use
within certain climate ranges (am-
bient temperatures). It must not be
used in ranges for which it is not de-
signed. The climate range for your ap-
pliance is stated on the data plate in-
side the appliance. Installing it in a
room with too low an ambient tempera-
ture will lead to the appliance switching
off for longer periods so that it cannot
maintain the required temperature.
Never use steam cleaning ap-
paratus to defrost or clean the ap-
pliance. The steam could attack the
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infesta-
tion by cockroaches or other vermin,
pay particular attention to keeping the
appliance and its surroundings in a
clean condition at all times. Any dam-
age which may be caused by cock-
roaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the appliance guarantee.
Disposal of old appliances
Before disposing of an old ap-
pliance first make the door latch or
lock unusable.
This way you will prevent children from
accidentally locking themselves in and
endangering their lives.
Before disposing of an old ap-
pliance, unplug it and render the
plug useless. Cut off the cable directly
behind the appliance and at the plug to
prevent misuse.
Be careful not to damage any part
of the pipework whilst awaiting dis-
posal, e.g. by
– puncturing the refrigerant channels
in the evaporator.
– bending any pipework.
– scratching the surface coating.
Splashes of refrigerant can damage the
eyes.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by non-
compliance with these Warning and
safety instructions.

Operation
Before using for the first time
Clean the inside of the appliance
and the accessories with luke warm
water and a little washing up liquid
and then dry using a soft cloth.
Switching on
Using a coin turn the On/Off dial in a
clockwise direction away from the "0"
position.
Forcing it beyond its range would
damage it. Turn it only as far as it
will go, then turn it back again.
The appliance starts cooling. The inte-
rior light will come on if the door is op-
ened.
Switching off
Using a coin turn the On/Off dial in
an anti-clockwise direction back to
the "0" position.
The cooling process and the interior
light are switched off.
Switching off for longer
periods of time
If the appliance is not going to be used
for a longer period of time, e.g. whilst
on holiday
switch the appliance off at the mains,
withdraw the plug (pull on the plug
and not the cable),
clean the appliance out and
leave the door ajar to air the ap-
pliance.
If, during a long absence, the
appliance is switched off but not
cleaned out and the door is left shut
there is a danger of mould and
odours building up inside the
appliance.

The correct temperature
It is very important to set the correct
temperature for storing food in the ap-
pliance. Micro organisms will cause
food which is not stored at the correct
temperature to deteriorate rapidly. Tem-
perature 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,
– if too much food is stored in it at
once,
– the warmer the food is which is put
into it,
– the higher the ambient temperature
surrounding the appliance.
The appliance is designed for use in
specific ambient temperatures (cli-
mate ranges). Do not use in ambient
temperatures for which it is not de-
signed.
. . . in the refrigerator
We recommend a temperature of
5 °C in the middle of the refrigerator
section.
Temperature selection
The temperature is set with the tem-
perature dial.
Using a coin turn the temperature
dial in a clockwise direction to the re-
quired setting.
Forcing it beyond its range would
damage it. Turn it only as far as it
will go, then turn it back again.
The higher the setting, the lower the
temperature in the appliance.
A mid range setting is normally suffi-
cient.
The correct temperature

Dynamic cooling
Dynamic cooling m
With dynamic cooling the temperature
inside the appliance is distributed to all
areas more evenly. All food stored in
the appliance will be chilled to about
the same degree. The temperature is
controlled as normal with the tempera-
ture dial.
Dynamic cooling should be selected
when:
– the ambient temperature in the room
is high (above approx. 30 °C) and
– the room humidity level is high.
Switching on dynamic cooling
Press the dynamic cooling button
m. The dynamic cooling indicator
light will come on.
Switching off dynamic cooling
When dynamic cooling is switched on
the appliance uses more energy. It
should therefore be switched off when
the room temperature is normal (below
30 °C) and when humidity levels are
normal.
Press the dynamic cooling button
m. The dynamic cooling indicator
light will go out.
Dynamic cooling

Storing food
Natural air circulation gives rise to differ-
ent temperature zones inside the ap-
pliance. Cold, heavy air sinks to the
lowest section of the appliance.
Make use of the different zones
when placing food in the appliance.
The coldest zones are against the
back wall and above the vegetable con-
tainers. Use the area above the veget-
able containers for perishable foods
such as meat, sausage, fish etc.
The warmest zone is in the top section
of the door. Use this area for storing
butter and cheese.
Loading examples
When placing food in the appliance
load the top shelves first and work
your way down to the bottom starting
with baked goods, pre-cooked foods
and milk products and finishing with
meats, fish and sausages.
Use the vegetable containers for stor-
ing vegetables, salad and fruit.
Not all fruit and vegetables should
be stored together in the same con-
tainer as they give off natural gases
which affect the perishability of
other foods. (See section "Chilling
and storing food").
Fill the door shelves from the top to
the bottom.
Start with butter, cheese, small tins,
bottles and tubes in the upper
shelves, followed by large bottles,
juice containers and milk in the bot-
tom shelves.
Do not store cooking oil in the ap-
pliance door.
Traces of oil can cause stress
cracks to occur in the plastic com-
ponents in the door.
Storing food

Adjusting the interior fittings
Moving the shelves
The shelves can be adjusted according
to the height of the food.
Pull the shelves forward as far as
they will go then lift them upwards to
remove them.
With the rear barrier facing upwards
place the shelf at the required posi-
tion.
The rear barrier must face upwards
to prevent food from touching the
back of the appliance and freezing
to it.
Split shelf
(depending on model)
In order to accommodate tall items in
the appliance one of the shelves is
divided. The front section can be taken
out to allow space for tall items stand-
ing on the shelf below.
Adjusting door shelves
Push the door shelf upwards then
remove it by pulling it forwards.
Replace the door shelf at the re-
quired position. Ensure that it is se-
curely pushed back into position.
Moving the bottle divider
The bottle divider can be moved to the
left or right to ensure that bottles are
held securely in position when the door
is opened and shut.

Chilling and storing food
Important notes:
Use the different cooling zones for
storing food correctly. See the sec-
tion on loading examples.
– Food must not touch the back wall of
the appliance. Otherwise it may
freeze to the back wall.
– Do not store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products con-
taining combustible gas (e.g. spray
cans). Danger of explosion.
– If storing alcohol with a high percent-
age proof, make sure it is tightly
closed, and store upright.
– Hot food and drinks must be cooled
to room temperature before placing
them in the appliance.
– Store food covered or packaged.
This way you will prevent food smells
or tastes from affecting other foods
and prevent food from drying out.
Fruit and vegetables may, however,
be stored loose in the vegetable con-
tainers.
– Do not store groceries too close to
each other. Space should be left be-
tween individual items for air to circu-
late.
– Do not keep the door open for too
long when putting food in and taking
it out of the appliance. This will help
save energy.
Food which should not be stored in
a refrigerator
Not all food is suitable for refrigeration.
These include:
– Fruit and vegetables such as
bananas, avocado pears, papaya,
passion fruit, aubergines
– Fruit which is not yet ripe
– Potatoes
Some types of vegetables give off a
natural gas which speeds up the rate
at which food perishes. Some fruit and
vegetables react strongly to this gas
and should not be stored together in
the vegetable containers.
Examples of fruit which produce a
large amount of this natural gas are:
Apples, passion fruit, apricots, pears,
nectarines, peaches, plums, avocado
pears, papayas and figs.
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, toma-
toes, bananas, avocado pears, pears,
nectarines and peaches.

Defrosting
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the appliance whilst it
is in use. These are automatically
removed and defrosted by the ap-
pliance.
The condensate is drained away via a
channel and drain hole into an evapora-
tion system at the back of the ap-
pliance.
Ensure that the condensate channel
and drain hole are never blocked so
that condensate can flow away with-
out hindrance.
Defrosting
15

Cleaning and care
Never use cleaning agents contain-
ing abrasive substances such as
sand, soda, acids or chemical sol-
vents.
"Non-abrasive" cleaning agents are
also unsuitable as they can cause
matt areas to appear.
Make sure that no water can pene-
trate into the electronic unit or into
the light.
Do not let water get into the drain-
age channel and drain hole when
cleaning.
Never use steam cleaning ap-
paratus to clean the appliance. The
steam could attack the electrical
components and cause a short cir-
cuit.
The data plate located inside the ap-
pliance must not be removed. It con-
tains information which is required
in the event of a service call.
Before cleaning
Switch the appliance off by turning
the On/Off dial to the "0" position.
Take any food out of the appliance
and store it in a cool place.
Take out any removable parts e.g.
shelves for cleaning.
Cleaning the outer casing, the
interior and accessories
Use lukewarm water with a little wash-
ing up liquid. Accessories and shelves
should be hand washed only. The but-
ter dish is, however, dishwasher safe.
Clean the refrigerator at least once a
month.
Clean the condensate channel and
drain hole frequently, so that conden-
sate can drain away unhindered.
Use a straw or similar to clear the
drain if necessary.
After cleaning, wipe the outer cas-
ing, the interior and accessories with
a damp cloth and dry with a soft
cloth. Leave the door open to air the
appliance for a short while.
Ventilation gaps
The ventilation gaps should be
cleaned on a regular basis with a
brush or vacuum cleaner. A build up
of dust will increase the appliance’s
energy consumption.
Door seals
Do not use any oils or grease on the
door seals as these will cause the
seals to deteriorate and become
porous with time.
The door seals should be cleaned regu-
larly with clean water and then wiped dry
with a soft cloth.
Cleaning and care
16
Page: 16
Metal grille at the back of the
appliance
The metal grille at the back of the ap-
pliance (heat exchanger) should be
dusted at least once a year. A build up
of dust will increase the energy con-
sumption of the appliance.
When cleaning the grille, make sure
that the pipework and other compo-
nents do not get broken or dam-
aged in any way.
After cleaning
Replace all shelves and accessories
in the refrigerator.
Switch the appliance on with the
On / Off dial.
Place food back in the appliance
and close the door.

Electrical connection
Electrical connection U.K.
The appliance is supplied with a mains
cable and moulded plug ready for con-
nection to an a.c. single phase 220 –
240 V 50 Hz supply. The fuse rating is
13 amps.
All electrical work should be carried
out by a suitably qualified and
competent person in accordance
with local and national safety regula-
tions.
Connection should be made via a
fused plug and suitable switched
socket which is easily accessible.
For extra safety it is advisable to in-
stall a residual current device (RCD)
with a trip current of 30 mA (in ac-
cordance with DIN VDE 0664, VDE
0100, Section 739).
Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by an exten-
sion lead. Extension leads do not guar-
antee the required safety of the ap-
pliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
The appliance must not be connected
to an inverter and must not be used
with a plug adapter as these can cause
damage to the appliance’s electronic
unit.
Important
The wires in the mains lead are col-
oured in accordance with the following
code:
Green/yellow = earth
Blue = neutral
Brown = live
As the colours of the wires in the mains
lead of this appliance may not corre-
spond with the coloured markings ident-
ifying the terminals in your plug, pro-
ceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured green and
yellow must be connected to the termi-
nal in the plug which is marked with the
letter E or by the earth symbol (z) or
coloured green or green and yellow.
The wire which is coloured blue must
be connected to the terminal which is
marked with the letter N or coloured
black.
The wire which is coloured brown must
be connected to the terminal which is
marked with the letter L or coloured red.

Non-rewireable plugs (BS 1363)
If this machine is fitted with a non-
rewireable plug, the following informa-
tion applies:
If the socket outlets are not suitable for
the plug supplied with this product, it
must be cut off and an appropriate
plug fitted.
The fuse carrier and the fuse should be
removed from the old plug and dis-
posed of. The plug cut from the flexible
cord should then be disposed of and
on no account be inserted into any
socket elsewhere in the house (electric
shock hazard).
The fuse cover must be re-fitted when
changing the fuse, and if the fuse
cover is lost, the plug must not be used
until a suitable replacement is ob-
tained. The colour of the correct re-
placement cover is that of the coloured
insert in the base of the plug, or the col-
our that is embossed in words in the
base of the plug (as applicable to the
design of the plug fitted).
The correct fuse rating of the replace-
ment fuses that are ASTA approved to
BS 1362 should be fitted. Replacement
fuse covers may be purchased from
your local electrical supplier, or Miele
Service agent.

Installation
Do not place any appliance which
gives off heat, such as a toaster or
microwave oven on top of this ap-
pliance, as this would increase the
appliance’s energy consumption.
Location
The appliance should be installed in a
dry, well ventilated room.
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 re-
quires to operate. It should not be in-
stalled where it is exposed to direct
sunlight or directly adjacent to a heat-
producing appliance such as an oven
or a radiator.
Climate range
The appliance is designed for a particu-
lar climate range (ambient room tem-
perature), and should not be used out-
side this range. The climate range of
this appliance is stated on the data
plate inside the appliance.
Climate range Ambient room
temperature
SN
N
ST
T
+10 °C to +32 °C
+16 °C to +32 °C
+18 °C to +38 °C
+18 °C to +43 °C
Operating in a room which is too cold
will cause the cooling system to switch
off for too long causing the internal tem-
perature in the appliance to rise with
the risk of food deteriorating and going
off. Frozen food could begin to thaw.
Ventilation
Air at the rear of the appliance gets
warm. To ensure sufficient ventilation
the ventilation gaps must not be
covered over.
The air inlet and outlet must not be
covered or blocked in any way. They
should be dusted on a regular basis.
Handle transit position
When you open the door for the first
time, the handle will make a clicking
sound. This is quite normal and indi-
cates that it has adjusted itself from its
transit position to its operational posi-
tion. The handle will now protrude
slightly more in front of the appliance
than it did during transportation.
Installation
Remove any cable clips from the
rear of the appliance.
Check that all parts at the rear of the
appliance are unhindered.
Carefully push the appliance into po-
sition.
Align the appliance
To align the appliance adjust the feet
using the spanner supplied.

Building in
The appliance can be installed into a
kitchen run. To match the height of the
rest of the kitchen the appliance can be
fitted with a suitable top box b.
A ventilation gap of at least 50 mm
depth must be allowed for behind the
appliance for air to circulate.
The cross section of the air outlet must
be at least 300 cm2 to ensure that air
can circulate without hindrance. Other-
wise the appliance has to work too
hard resulting in an increase in elec-
tricity consumption.
The air inlet and outlet must not be
covered or blocked in any way.
They should be dusted on a regular
basis.
When built into a kitchen run (max.
depth 580 mm) the appliance can be
installed directly next to a kitchen furni-
ture housing unit. The appliance door
c will protrude in front of furniture
fronts at the sides by 34 mm and by
51 mm in the middle of the door.
When installed next to a wall d a dis-
tance of approx. 36 mm is needed on
the hinge side between the wall and
the appliance, so that the door and the
handle have sufficient space for open-
ing.
When secured to adjoining furniture
e or if a spacer is fitted between the
appliance and the wall, please note the
following:
Ensure that the door has sufficient
space for opening fully after the ap-
pliance has been secured.
To secure the appliance to adjoining
kitchen furniture use self tapping
screws. The depth of the screw must
not exceed 10 mm.
