Before performing any cleaning operations, the machine must be turned off by pressing the main switch (A23) and unplugged from the mains power supply. Never immerse the coffee maker in water.
Cleaning the coffee maker
Do not use solvents or abrasive detergents to clean the coffee maker. A soft damp cloth will suffice. Never wash any of the components of the coffee maker in the dishwasher.
The following parts of the machine must be cleaned regularly:
- Waste coffee container (A4).
- Drip tray (A14).
- Water tank (A12).
- Coffee (A13), hot water (A11) and cappuccino maker spouts (A10).
- Pre-ground coffee funnel (A21).
- Inside of the machine, accessible after opening the service door (A2).
- Brewing unit (A5).
Cleaning the waste coffee container
When “EMPTY WASTE COFFEE CONTAINER” is displayed, the waste coffee container must be emptied and cleaned. To clean:
- Open the service door on the front of the appliance (fig. 16), extract the drip tray (fig. 17) and clean.
- Clean the waste coffee container thoroughly.
Cleaning the drip tray
- When extracting the drip tray, the waste coffee container must always be emptied.
- If the drip tray is not emptied the water might overflow. This could damage the machine. The drip tray is fitted with a level indicator (red) showing the level of water it contains (fig. 27). Before the indicator protrudes from the cup tray, the drip tray must be emptied and cleaned.
To remove the tray
- Open the service door (fig. 16).
- Remove the drip tray and the waste coffee container (fig. 17).
- Clean the drip tray and waste coffee container (A4).
- Replace the drip tray and waste coffee container (A4).
- Close the service door.
Cleaning the water tank
- Clean the water tank (A12) regularly (about once a month) with a damp cloth and a little mild washing up liquid.
- Remove all traces of washing up liquid.
Cleaning the spouts
- Clean the nozzles periodically using a sponge ( fig. 28).
- Check regularly that the holes in the coffee spout are not blocked. If necessary, remove coffee deposits with a toothpick (fig. 26).
Cleaning the pre-ground coffee funnel
- Check regularly (about once a month) that the pre-ground coffee funnel is not blocked (fig. 21).
Cleaning the inside of the coffee maker
- Check regularly (about once a week) that the inside of the appliance is not dirty. If necessary, remove coffee deposits with a sponge.
- Remove the residues with a vacuum cleaner (fig. 30).
Cleaning the brewing unit
The brewing unit must be cleaned at least once a month.
The brewing unit (A5) must not be removed when the appliance is on. Do not use force to remove the brewing unit.
- Make sure the machine is correctly turned off (see “Turning the appliance off”).
- Open the service door (fig. 16).
- Remove the drip tray and waste coffee container (fig. 17);
- Press the two red release buttons inwards and at the same time pull the brewing unit outwards (fig. 31).
Do not use washing up liquid to clean the brewing unit. It would remove the lubricant applied to the inside of the piston.
- Soak the brewing unit in water for about 5 minutes, then rinse.
- After cleaning, replace the brewing unit (A5) by sliding it onto the internal support and pin at the bottom, then push the PUSH symbol fully in until it clicks into place.
