Question about Miele Freezers
Suddenly the unit started to flash a fault code 01 21 _F. What does that mean? I'm having problems with the ice maker and also, I changed the water filter around 3 months ago and it shows that it must be replaced. Any help will be appreciated.
From a previous post for a different Miele freezer: "I emailed Miele and this is what they reply: Thank you for your interest in Miele products. That message is a ice fault. If the ice has stopped production, please turn the toggle switch off under the electronic touch panel. To find this please reference the owners manual on pages 7 and 9. I have included the owners manual in case yours is missing. If your machine still produces ice fine just shake the cubes around making sure none are built up along the back wall of the ice drawer. If this continues please contact our service department. Please reference incident number 2698767 should you need to call in. For more detailed information, please visit our web site at www.miele.com or to speak with one of our representative call 800-999-1360." Haven't tried yet, but will post again if it didn't work, otherwise should be the answer"

CHeck to make sure your freezer is 0 to 5 degrees. If it is warmer than that the water valve wont open to the ice maker. Have you replaced the water filter?

Ice cubes freeze from the outside, so the center of the cube is the last to freeze. Ice is pure water, only H 2 O, so as the ice cube freezes, all of the dissolved minerals are pushed to the center. Near the end of the freezing, there isn't much water left in the center of the cube, so these minerals become very concentrated, and they form the "white stuff" – the technical name is precipitate. The hardness minerals that cause the "white stuff" are not toxic.

Testimonial: "Brilliant - it all makes sense now! I'm 100 per cent satisfied that is what it's all about. Many thanks, erkes. You're a star..."
I turned the fridge and freezer off using the circular dials, I then turned the unit off at the mains. Left it for a few minutes and then turned the power back on. I then turned the circular dials to "max" and then depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons to turn this facility on. This time they came on normally (not flashing) and no alarm sounded. The fridge and freezer then started to get cold. Once the unit had been running for several hours I then turned the dials to the 3/4 mark and depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons again to turn them off. Over night the fridge and the freezer appear to be working properly so I hope that my problem is solved. Maybe the unit just needed to "settle" before being switched on?
