This appliance complies with current safety requirements. Improper use of the appliance can lead to personal injury and material damage.
  • Page 9 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS  This appliance is intended for residential use only. Use only as described in these operating instructions.  This appliance is not intended for outdoor use.  The oven is intended for domestic use only: cooking, baking, roasting, broiling, canning, defrosting and reheating of food.
  • Page 10 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Children  As with any appliance, close supervision is necessary when used by children.  Do not leave children unattended: Children should not be alone or unsupervised in the area where the oven is installed. Do not allow them to sit or stand on the appliance.
  • Page 11 Technical safety  Installation, repair and maintenance work should be performed by a Miele authorized service technician in accordance with national and local safety regulations and the provided installation instructions. Contact Miele’s Technical Service Department for examination, repair or adjustment. Repairs and other work by unauthorized persons could be dangerous and may void the warranty.
  • Page 12 All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.  Defective components should be replaced by Miele original parts only. Only with these parts can the manufacturer guarantee the safety of the appliance.
  • Page 13 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS  If the range is installed behind a cabinet door, do not close the door while the appliance is in operation. Heat and moisture can build up behind the closed door and cause damage to the range and to the surrounding cabinets and flooring.
  • Page 14 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Proper use  Danger of burns! The Speed Oven becomes hot when in use.

  • Page 16 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS  WARNING NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may also trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
  • Page 17 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS  For modes 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.

  • Page 19 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS  The boiling wand ensures that the liquid heats up evenly with bubbles forming at the right time. When reheating liquids, always place the boiling wand supplied into the cup or glass. When boiling and in particular when reheating liquids, milk, sauces etc, using microwave power without the boiling wand, the boiling point of the liquid may be reached without the production of typical bubbles.
  • Page 20 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS  Food with a thick skin or peel, such as tomatoes, sausage, potatoes and eggplant, 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.
