2 2 Electrical requirements Before using this appliance ensure that the voltage indicated on the product corresponds with the main voltage in your home, if you are in any doubt about your supply contact your local electricity company. The flexible mains lead is supplied connected to a B.S. 1363 fused plug having a fuse of 13 amp capacity. Should this plug not fit the socket outlets in your home, it should be cut off and replaced with a suitable plug, following the procedure outlined below. Note: Such a plug cannot be used for any other appliance and should therefore be properly disposed of and not left where children might find it and plug it into a supply socket - with the obvious consequent danger. N.B. We recommend the use of good quality plugs and wall sockets that can be switched off when the machine is not in use. important: the wires in the mains lead fitted to this appliance are coloured in accordance with the following code: green and yellow earth blue neutral brown live As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows: - The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter E or by the earth symbol or coloured green or green and yellow. - The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black. - The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red. When wiring the plug, ensure that all strands of wire are securely retained in each terminal. Do not forget to tighten the mains lead clamp on the plug. If your electricity supply point has only two pin socket outlets, or if you are in doubt, consult a qualified electrician. Should the mains lead ever require replacement, it is essential that this operation be carried out by a qualified electrician and should only be replaced with a flexible cord of the same size. After replacement of a fuse in the plug, the fuse cover must be refitted. If the fuse cover is lost, the plug must not be used until a replacement cover is obtained. The colour of the correct replacement fuse cover is that of the coloured insert in the base of the fuse recess or elsewhere on the plug. Always state this colour when ordering a replacement fuse cover. Only 13amp replacement fuses which are asta approved to B.S. 1362 should be fitted. This appliance conforms to the Norms EN 55014 regarding the suppression of radio interference.

9 PRELIMINARY CHECKS Checking the appliance After removing the packaging, make sure the product is complete and undamaged and that all accessories are present. Do not use the appliance if it is visibly damaged. Contact De’Longhi Customer Services. Installing the appliance Important! When you install the appliance, you should re- spect the following safety warnings: • The appliance gives off heat. After positio- ning 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. • Water penetrating the appliance could cau- se damage. Do not place the appliance near taps or sinks. • The appliance could be damaged if the water it contains freezes. Do not install the applian- ce in a room where the temperature could drop below freezing point. • Arrange the power cable in such a way that it cannot be damaged by sharp edges or con- tact with hot surfaces (e.g. electric hot pla- tes). Connecting the appliance Important! Check that the mains power supply voltage cor- responds to the value indicated on the rating pla- te on the bottom of the appliance. Connect the appliance to an efficiently 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 Please note : • Coffee has been used to factory test the ap- pliance 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 water hardness” on page 16. 1. Remove the water tank, fill to the MAX line with fresh water then replace in the appliance (fig. 1). 2. Turn the cappuccino maker outwards and place a container with a minimum capacity of 100 ml underneath (fig. 2). 3. Plug the appliance into the mains socket and place the main switch on the back of the ap- pliance in the I position (fig. 3). 4. Press the (fig. 4) button (fig. 4). The , , lights flash simultaneou- sly. 5. Turn the steam knob a half turn anticlockwise as far as it will go to position I (fig. 5). Water is delivered from the cappuccino maker (it is normalfortheappliancetomakesomenoise). 6. Wait for delivery of hot water to stop auto- matically. The , , lights flash to indicate that you must close the steam tap by turning the steam knob to the 0 position. 7. Turn the steam knob to the 0 position. The appliance goes off automatically. To use the appliance, turn it on. Please note : • 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. TURNING THE APPLIANCE ON Please note : Before turning the appliance on, make sure the main switch on the back of the appliance is in the I position (fig. 3). Each time the appliance is turned on, it performs an automatic preheat and rinse cycle which can- not be interrupted. The appliance is ready for use only after comple- tion of this cycle. Danger of burns! During rinsing, a little hot water comes out of the
10 coffee spouts and is collected in the drip tray un- derneath. Avoid contact with splashes of water. • To turn the appliance on, press the but- ton (fig. 4). The and lights flash while the appliance is heating up and perfor- ming an automatic rinse cycle. By circulating the hot water, the appliance heats both the boiler and the internal circuits. During this phase, the light flashes. When the and lights remain on ste- adily, the appliance is at temperature. TURNING THE APPLIANCE OFF Each time the appliance is turned off, it performs an automatic rinse cycle which cannot be inter- rupted. Danger of burns! During rinsing, a little hot water flows from the coffee spouts. Avoid contact with splashes of water. To turn the appliance off, press the button (fig. 4). The appliance performs a rinse cycle then goes off. Please note : If the appliance is not used for an extended pe- riod, place the main switch in the 0 position (fig. 6). Important! To avoid damaging the appliance, never place the main switch (fig. 6) in the 0 position while the appliance is on. SETTING AUTO-OFF (STAND-BY) The appliance is set by default to go off if not used for two hours. The time can be changed so that the appliance switches off after 15 or 30 minutes, or after 1, 2 or 3 hours. 1. With the appliance off but the main switch in the l position (fig. 3), press and hold the ECO button until the lights at the bottom of the control panel come on (see image after point 2). 2. Select the required period of time (15 or 30 minutes or 1, 2 or 3 hours) by pressing the button (see the light/time table below). 15min 30min 1h 2h 3h . 3. Press the ECO button to confirm the selec- tion. Auto-off is programmed. Please note: To disconnect the appliance completely, place the main switch at the back of the appliance in the 0 position (fig. 6). ENERGY SAVING Use this function to activate or deactivate energy saving mode. This reduces energy consumption in compliance with current European regula- tions. ECO mode is active by default (ECO light on). To deactivate the function, press the ECO button. The light goes off. To reactivate the function, press the ECO button again, the light comes on. Please note: A few seconds may elapse between energy sa- ving mode and delivery of the first coffee as the appliance must heat up again. MAKING COFFEE Selecting the coffee taste Turn the coffee taste selection knob (B8) to se- lect the required taste. Turning it clockwise incre- ases the quantity of coffee beans the appliance will grind and therefore the strength of the coffee obtained. Please note : • The first time you use the appliance, you will need to make a number of coffees to identify the correct knob position through trial and error. • Make sure not to turn the knob too far
11 clockwise, otherwise the coffee may be de- livered too slowly (a drop at a time), particu- larly when making two cups of coffee. Selecting the quantity of coffee in the cup Adjust the coffee quantity selection knob (B9) to set the required quantity. Turning it clockwise increases the amount of cof- fee obtained. Please note : The first time you use the appliance, you will need to make a number of coffees to identify the correct knob position through trial and error. Adjusting the coffee mill The coffee mill is set by default to prepare cof- fee correctly and should not require regulating initially. However, if after making the first few coffees you find that the coffee is either too weak and not creamy enough or delivery is too slow (a drop at a time), this can be corrected by adjusting the grinding adjustment knob (fig. 7). Please note : The grinding adjustment knob must only be tur- ned when the coffee mill is in operation.. To obtain delivery not a drop at a time, turn one click clockwise towards “7”. For fuller bodied creamier coffee, turn one click anti- clockwise towards “1” (do not turn more than one click at a time otherwise the cof- fee could be delivered a drop at a time). These adjustments will only be evident after at least 2 cups of coffee have been made. If this adjustment does not obtain the desired result, turn the knob another click. Tips for a hotter coffee: For hotter coffee, you should: • before delivering the coffee, perform a rinse cycle by pressing the button. Hot water is delivered from the spout, heating the inter- nal circuits of the appliance and thus raising the coffee temperature. • warm the cups by rinsing them with hot wa- ter (using the hot water function). Making coffee using coffee beans Important! Do not use caramelised or candied coffee beans as they could stick to the coffee mill and make it unusable. 1. Fill the container with coffee beans (fig. 8). 2. Place under the coffee spouts: - 1 cup, if you want 1 coffee (fig. 9); - 2 cups, if you want 2 coffees. 3. Lower the spouts as near as possible to the cup. This makes a creamier coffee (fig. 10). 4. Press the button corresponding to the num- ber of coffees required (1 cup or 2 cups , figs. 11 and 12). 5. Preparation begins and the or light stays on until delivery is complete. Please note: • While the machine is making coffee, delivery can be interrupted at any moment by pres- sing one of the two coffee buttons ( or ). • At the end of delivery, to increase the quantity of coffee in the cup, just press (within 3 secon- ds) one of the coffee buttons ( or ). Once the coffee has been made, the appliance is ready to use again. Please note: For hotter coffee, see the section “Tips for a hot- ter coffee” (page 11). Important! • If the coffee is delivered a drop at a time, too weak and not creamy enough or too cold, read the tips in the “Troubleshooting” sec- tion on page19. • Lights may be displayed on the control pa- nel during use. Their meaning is given in the
12 section “Meaning of lghts” on page 17. Making coffee using pre-ground coffee Important! • Never add pre-ground coffee when the ma- chine is off or it could spread through the inside of the machine and dirty it. This could damage the appliance. • Never use more than one level measure or it could dirty the inside of the machine or block the funnel. Please note: If you use pre-ground coffee, you can only make one cup of coffee at a time. 1. Turn the coffee taste selection knob anti- clockwise as far as it will go to the posi- tion. 2. Make sure the funnel is not blocked, then add one level measure of pre-ground coffee (fig. 13) 3. Place a cup under the coffee spouts. 4. Press the cup coffee button (fig. 11). 5. Preparation begins and can be interrupted at any moment by pressing one of the two coffee buttons ( or ). To deactivate the pre-ground coffee function, turn the knob to one of the other positions. Please note: A few seconds may elapse between energy sa- ving mode and delivery of the first coffee. MAKING CAPPUCCINO Important! Danger of burns! During preparation, steam is given off. Take care to avoid scalds. 1. When preparing cappuccino, make the cof- fee in a large cup; 2. Fill a container with about 100 grams of milk for each cappuccino to be made. In choosing the size of the container, bear in mind that the milk doubles or triples in volu- me; Please note: For a richer denser froth, use skimmed or partially skimmed milk at refrigerator tempe- rature (about 5°C). To avoid milk with poor froth or large bub- bles, always clean the cappuccino maker as described in the section “Cleaning the cap- puccino maker after use”. 3. Press the button. The corresponding light flashes, indicating that the appliance is heating up; 5. Turn the cappuccino maker outwards and immerse in the milk container (fig. 14); 6. When the light stops flashing and co- mes on steadily, turn the steam knob to the l position. Steam is delivered from the cappuc- cino maker, giving the milk a creamy frothy appearance and making it more voluminous; 7. For a creamier froth, rotate the container with slow movements in an upward direc- tion. (You should not discharge steam for more than 3 minutes at a time); 8. When you have obtained the required froth, stop steam delivery by turning the steam knob back to the 0 position. Important! Danger of burns! Always turn the steam knob to the 0 position before removing the container with the fro- thed milk to avoid burns caused by splashes of boiling milk. 9. Add the milk froth to the cup of coffee pre- pared previously. The cappuccino is ready. Sweeten to taste and, if desired, sprinkle the froth with a little cocoa powder. Please note: • If immediately after making cappuccino and deactivating the steam function by pressing the steam button you press the or button because you want to make another coffee, the coffee maker will be too hot (the and lights flash to in- dicate an unsuitable temperature). You must wait about ten minutes for the appliance too cool down sufficiently. To cool it down more quickly, after deactiva- ting the steam function, open the steam knob and let the water flow out of the cappuccino maker into a container until the lights
13 and stop flashing. Danger of burns! Avoid contact with splashes of water. Cleaning the cappuccino maker after use. Clean the cappuccino maker each time you use it to avoid the build-up of milk residues or blocka- ges. Important! Danger of burns! When cleaning the cappuccino maker, a little hot water is delivered. Avoid contact with splashes of water. 1. Deliver a little water for a few seconds by ro- tating the steam knob to the I position. Then turn the steam knob to the 0 position to stop the flow of hot water. 2. Wait for a few minutes for the cappuccino maker to cool down. Grip the handle of the cappuccino maker tube firmly in one hand and with the other rotate the cappuccino maker anticlockwise (fig. 15) and remove by pulling downwards (fig. 16). 3.

Wash all parts of the cappuccino maker tho- roughly with a sponge and warm water. 6. Reinsert the nozzle and replace the cappuc- cino maker on the nozzle, turning it and pu- shing it upwards until it is attached. HEATING WATER Important! Danger of burns! Never leave the machine unsupervised while de- livering hot water. As shown below, stop delivery of hot water when the cup is full. The cappuccino maker becomes hot while water is being delivered and must be held by the handle only. 1. Place a container under the cappuccino ma- ker (as close as possible to avoid splashes). 2. Check that the and lights are on steadily. 3. Turn the steam knob a half turn anticlockwise as far as it will go. Delivery begins. 4. Stop by turning the steam knob to the 0 po- sition. Please note: • If “Energy Saving” mode is active, you may have to wait a few seconds before the hot water is delivered. • To produce steam immediately after prepa- ring hot water, you should open the steam knob for a few seconds to empty the water circuits. CLEANING Cleaning the coffee maker The following parts of the machine must be cle- aned regularly: - coffee grounds container (A17), - drip tray (A15), - water tank (A12), - coffee spouts (A18), - pre-ground coffee funnel (A8), - inside of the machine, accessible after ope- ning the infuser door (A16), - infuser (A20). Important! • Do not use solvents, abrasive detergents or alcohol to clean the coffee maker. With De’Longhi superautomatic coffee ma- kers, you need not use chemical products to clean the machine. The descaler recommen- ded by De’Longhi is made from natural and completely biodegradable substances. • None of the components can be washed in a dishwasher. • Do not use metal objects to remove encru- stations or coffee deposits as they could scratch metal or plastic surfaces. Cleaning the coffee grounds container When the light flashes, the coffee grounds container needs emptying. Unless you clean the grounds container, the light will continue to flash and the appliance cannot be used to make coffee. To clean (with the machine on): • Open the service door on the front of the ap- pliance, extract the drip tray (fig. 18), empty and clean.
14 • Empty the grounds container and clean tho- roughly to remove all residues left on the bottom. Important! When removing the drip tray, the grounds con- tainer must be emptied, even if it contains few grounds. If this is not done, when you make the next cof- fees, the grounds container may fill up more than expected and clog the machine. Cleaning the drip tray Important! If the drip tray is not emptied regularly, the water could overflow from the edge and seep inside or around the machine. This could damage the machine, the surface it rests on or the surrounding area. The drip tray is fitted with a level indicator (red) showing the level of water it contains (fig. 19). Before the indicator protrudes from the cup tray, the drip tray must be emptied and cleaned. To remove the drip tray: 1. Remove the drip tray and the grounds con- tainer (fig. 18); 2. Empty the drip tray and grounds container and wash them; 3. Replace the drip tray and grounds container. Cleaning the inside of the machine Danger of electric shock! Before cleaning internal parts, the machine must be turned off (see “Turning off”) and unplugged from the mains power supply. Never immerse the coffee maker in water. 1.

PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE SOLUTION The coffee is not hot • The cups were not preheated. • Warm the cups by rinsing them with hot water (N.B. you can use the hot water function). • The infuser has cooled down because 2/3 minutes have elapsed since the last coffee was made. • Before making coffee, heat the infuser by pressing the button. The coffee is weak or not creamy enough. • The coffee is ground too coarsely. • Turn the grinding adjustment knob one click anticlockwise towards “1” while the coffee mill is in operation (fig. 7).
