	 After positioning the appliance on the worktop, leave
a space of at least 3 cm between the surfaces of the
appliance and the side and rear walls and at least 15 cm
above the coffee maker.

Connecting the appliance
Important!
Check that the mains power supply voltage corresponds to
the value indicated on the rating plate on the bottom of the
appliance.
Connect the appliance to an earthed and correctly installed
socket with a minimum current rating of 10A only.
If the power socket does not match the plug on the appliance,
have the socket replaced with a suitable type by a qualified
professional.
Using the appliance for the first time
Pleasenote!
•	 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.
	 The machine is, however, guaranteed to be new.
•	 You should customise water hardness as soon as possible
following the instructions in the section “Setting the
water hardness”on page 18.
1.	 Insert the power cable connector into the socket at the
back of the appliance and connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply (fig. 1). Make sure the main
switch at the back of the appliance is pressed (fig. 2).
You must first choose the language (the languages scroll
through at intervals of about 3 seconds).
2.	 When “English” appears, press and hold the
button (fig. 3) for a few seconds until “English set” is
displayed.
Follow the instructions displayed by the appliance:
3.	 “FILL TANK!”: remove the water tank (fig. 4), fill to the
MAX line with fresh water then replace in the appliance.
4. 	 “INSERT WATER SPOUT!”: Check that the hot water spout
is inserted on the nozzle and place a container with a
minimum capacity of 100 ml underneath (fig. 6).
5. 	 “Hot water... Press OK?”is displayed;
6.	 Press the button to confirm (fig. 3). The
appliance delivers water from the spout then goes off
automatically.
The coffee maker is now ready for normal use.
Pleasenote!
•	 When using the appliance for the first time, you need to
make 4-5 cups of coffee or 4-5 cappuccinos before the
appliance starts to give satisfactory results.
•	 To help reduce the buildup of limescale in the appliance
and soften the water taste, we recommend installing a
water filter as described in the section“WATER FILTER”.
	 If your model is not provided with a filter, you can request
one from De’Longhi Customer Experience.

Adjusting the coffee mill
The coffee mill is preset in the factory to make coffee correctly
and should not require adjusting initially.

coffee is too thin and not creamy enough or that delivery is too
slow (a drop at a time), this can be corrected by adjusting the
grinding adjustment dial (fig. 12).
Pleasenote!
The grinding adjustment dial must only be turned when the
coffee mill is in operation.
If the coffee is delivered too slowly
or not at all, turn one click clockwise
towards“7”.

otherhand,turnoneclickanticlockwise
towards“1”(do not turn more than one
click at a time otherwise the coffee could be delivered a drop
at a time).
These adjustments will only be evident after at least 2 cups of
coffee have been delivered.

dial another click.
