Using the appliance for the first time

Details how to install, replace, and remove a filter.
  • Coffee has been used to factory test the appliance and it is therefore completely normal for there to be traces of coffee in the mill.
  • Customise water hardness as soon as possible following the instructions in section ‘Changing and setting menu parameters’, under “Setting water hardness”.
  1. Connect the appliance to the mains supply. Set the required language.
  2. To set the language, use the icons (B7 and B8) to choose the required language (fig. 2). When the message “PRESS OK TO CHOOSE ENGLISH” is displayed, press the OK icon (B9) (fig. 3) for 3 seconds until “ENGLISH INSTALLED” is displayed. If you set the wrong language, follow the instructions in section ‘Changing and setting menu parameters’, under “Setting the language”. If your language is not available, select one from those displayed. The instructions refer to the English version. Then follow the instructions displayed:
  3. After 5 seconds, the appliance displays “FILL TANK”. Extract the water tank (fig. 4), rinse and fill with fresh water without exceeding the MAX line. Replace and push as far as it will go. A water softener filter can be installed in the tank (fig. 29).
  4. Place a cup under the cappuccino maker (fig. 5). The appliance displays: “HOT WATER PRESS OK”. Press the OK icon (B9) (fig. 3) and after a few seconds a little water comes out of the cappuccino maker.
  5. The machine now displays “TURNING OFF... PLEASE WAIT” and goes off.
  6. Extract the appliance by pulling it out using the handles (fig. 6). Open the lid and fill the container with coffee beans, then close the lid and push the appliance in. The coffee maker is now ready for normal use.
  • Never introduce pre-ground coffee, freeze dried coffee, caramelised beans or anything else which could damage the appliance.
  • When using the appliance for the first time, you need to make 4-5 cups of coffee and 4-5 cappuccinos before the appliance gives satisfactory results.
  • Each time you turn the coffee maker on by the ON/OFF switch (A23), it performs a SELFDIAGNOSIS cycle and then goes off. To turn it on again, press the ON/OFF button (A7) (fig. 1)

Installing the filter

Some models are fitted with a water softener filter to improve the quality of the water used and extend the working life of the appliance.
To install, proceed as follows:

  1. Remove the filter from the packaging;
  2. Slide the date indicator pointer (see fig. 29) until the months of use are displayed.
  3. Fill the tank with a little water up to the level shown:

The filter lasts about two months if the appliance is used normally. If the coffee maker is left unused with the filter installed, it will last a maximum of three weeks. 

  1. Insert the filter in the water tank and press it until it touches   the bottom of the tank (see fig. 29);
  2. Fill the water tank and insert in the coffee maker;
  3. Place a container underneath the cappuccino maker (min. capacity: 100 ml).
  4. Press the  icon (B2) to enter the menu;

  6. Press the OK icon (B9);
  7. The message “INSTALL FILTER PLEASE CONFIRM” is displayed.
  8. Press the OK ICON (B9) to confirm the selection (or ESC (B6) to cancel). “HOT WATER PRESS OK” is displayed.
  9. Press the OK icon (B9) again. The appliance begins delivering hot water and the message “PLEASE WAIT... “ is displayed. When delivery stops, the appliance automatically displays the basic modes set again.

The appliance may request the operation to be repeated a number of times until the air is completely eliminated from the hydraulic circuit. 

Replacing the filter (“FILTER RESET”)

When “REPLACE FILTER” is displayed or after 2 months of use (see date indicator), the filter must be replaced:

  5. Fill the water tank and insert in the coffee maker;
  6. Turn the cappuccino maker outwards and place a container underneath (min. capacity 1000 ml).
