Cleaning the Appliance

The following parts of the appliance must be cleaned regularly (refer to page 2):

  • The appliance’s internal circuit.
  • Coffee grounds container.
  • Drip tray.
  • Water tank.
  • Coffee spouts.
  • Pre-ground coffee funnel.
  • Infuser, accessible after opening the infuser door.
  • Milk container.
  • Hot water/steam connection nozzle.
  • Control panel.
  • Do not use solvents, abrasive detergents or alcohol to clean the coffee maker. You need not use chemical products to clean the machine.
  • None of the components of the appliance can be washed in a dishwasher with the exception of the milk container.
  • Do not use metal objects to remove coffee deposits as they could scratch metal or plastic surfaces. 


Cleaning the Machine’s Internal Circuit

If the appliance is not used for more than three to four days, before using it again, we strongly recommend switching it on and:

  1. Performing two to three rinse cycles by selecting the ‘Rinse’ function (see ‘Rinsing’ section).
  2. Delivering hot water for a few seconds (see ‘Delivering hot water’ section).
After cleaning, it is normal for the grounds container to contain water


Cleaning the Coffee Grounds Container

When EMPTY GROUNDS CONTAINER appears on the display, the grounds container must be emptied and cleaned. The appliance cannot be used to again until you have cleaned the grounds container. Even if the container is not full, the empty grounds container message is displayed 72 hours after the first coffee has been prepared. For the 72 hours to be calculated correctly, avoid turning the appliance off from the mains switch if it is not necessary

To clean (with the appliance on):

  1. Open the bottom door.
  1. Remove the drip tray, empty and clean.
  2. Empty the grounds container and clean thoroughly to remove all residues left on the bottom. This can be done using the spatula or the brush provided.


When removing the drip tray, the grounds container must be emptied, even if it contains few grounds. If this is not done, when you make the next coffees, the grounds container may fill up more than expected and clog the machine. 


Cleaning the Drip Tray

  1. Remove the drip tray and coffee grounds container.
  2. Empty the drip tray and grounds container and wash them.
  3. Re-insert the drip tray and grounds container back into the appliance.
  • The drip tray is fitted with a level indicator (red) showing the level of water it contains.
  • Before the indicator protrudes from the cup tray, the drip tray must be emptied and cleaned, otherwise the water may overflow the edge and damage the appliance, the surface it rests on or the surrounding area.


Cleaning the Inside of the Coffee Maker

Before cleaning internal parts, the appliance must be turned off (see section ‘Turning the appliance off’) and unplugged from the mains power supply. Never immerse the the appliance in water.
  1. Check regularly (about once a month) that the inside of the appliance (accessible after removing the drip tray) is not dirty.
  2. If necessary, remove coffee deposits with the brush supplied and a sponge. Remove all the residues with a vacuum cleaner.

Cleaning the Water Tank

  2. Remove the filter (if present) and rinse with running water.
  3. Replace the filter (if provided), fill the tank with fresh water and place the tank back into the appliance.
  4. For models with water softener filter only: Deliver about 90ml of hot water to reactivate the filter.
