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.
Warning - this appliance must be earthed

•	 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.

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
Page: 9
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.

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

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
Page: 10
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
Page: 11
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
Page: 12
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

pulling downwards (fig. 16).
3. 	 Wash all parts of the cappuccino maker tho-
roughly with a sponge and warm water.
4. 	 Make sure the holes shown by the arrows in
fig. 17 are not blocked. If necessary, clean
with a pin.
5. 	 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),

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.	 Check regularly (about once a month) that
the inside of the appliance (accessible after
removing the drip tray) is not dirty. If neces-
sary, remove coffee deposits with a brush
and a sponge.
2.	 Remove the residues with a vacuum cleaner
(fig. 20).
Cleaning the water tank
1. 	 Clean the water tank (A12) regularly (about
once a month and whenever you replace the
water softener filter, if provided) with a damp
cloth and a little mild washing up liquid.
2. 	 Fill the tank with fresh water and put back in
the appliance.
Cleaning the coffee spouts
1. 	 Clean the coffee spouts with a sponge or
cloth (fig. 21).
2. 	 Check the holes in the coffee spout are not
blocked. If necessary, remove coffee depo-
sits with a toothpick (fig. 22).
Cleaning the pre-ground coffee funnel
Check regularly (about once a month ) that the
pre-ground coffee funnel (A8) is not blocked.
If necessary, remove coffee deposits with a
brush.
Cleaning the infuser
The infuser (A20) must be cleaned at least once
a month.
Important!

DESCALING
Descale the appliance when the light on the
panel flashes.
Important!
Descaler contains acids which may irritate the
skin and eyes.
It is vital to respect the manufacturer’s safety
warnings given on the descaler pack and the
warnings relating to the procedure to follow in
the event of contact with the skin and eyes.
Please note:
Use De’Longhi descaler only.
Under no circumstances should you use sulp-
hamic or acetic based descalers. Their use in-
validates the guarantee. Failure to descale the
appliance as described above also invalidates the
guarantee.
1. 	 Turn the machine on.
2. 	 Empty the water tank (A12).
3. 	 Pour the descaler diluted with water (respec-
ting the proportions indicated on the desca-
ler pack) into the water tank.
	 Place an empty container with a minimum
capacity of 1.5 litres under the hot water
spout.
4.	 Wait for the and lights to come
on steadily.
Important! Danger of burns!
Hot water containing acid flows from the cap-
puccino maker. Avoid contact with splashes of
water.
5.	 Press the button and hold it down for
at least 5 seconds to confirm that you have
added the solution and begin the descaling
procedure. The light in the button remains

gramme has begun. The , and
lights flash simultaneously telling you
to turn the steam knob to the l position (cof-
fee cannot be made).
6.	 Turn the steam knob anticlockwise to the l
position. The descaler solution flows out of
the cappuccino maker into the underlying
container.
	 The descale programme automatically per-
forms a series of rinses and pauses to remo-
ve limescale deposits from inside the machi-
ne.
After about 30 minutes, the water tank is empty,
the light comes on and the ,
and lights alternate. Turn the steam knob
clockwise as far as it will go to the 0 position.
The appliance is now ready for rinsing through
with clean water.
11.	Empty the container used to collect the de-
scaler solution and replace it empty under
the cappuccino maker.
12.	Remove the water tank, empty, rinse under
running water, fill with clean water and repla-
ce. The , and lights flash
simultaneously.
13.	Turn the steam knob a half turn anticlockwise
to the l position. Hot water comes out of the
spout.
14.	When the water tank is completely empty,
the light goes out and the and
, , lights flash.
15.	Turn the knob to the 0 position, fill the water
tank again and the appliance goes off auto-
matically.
To use the appliance, turn it on by pressing the
button.

SETTING WATER HARDNESS
The light comes on after a period of time
established according to water hardness.
The machine is set by default for a hardness va-
lue of 4 (very hard water).
The machine can also be programmed according
to the hardness of the mains water in the various
regions so that the machine needs to be descaled
less often.
Measuring water hardness
1. 	 Remove the “TOTAL HARDNESS TEST” indi-
cator paper attached to this manual from its
pack.
2. 	 Immerse the paper completely in a glass of
water for one second.
3. 	 Remove the paper from the water and shake
lightly. After about a minute, 1, 2, 3, or 4 red
squares form, depending on the hardness of
the water. Each square corresponds to one
level.
Level 1
Level 2
Level 3
Level 4
Set water hardness
1.	 Make sure the appliance is off (but connec-
ted to the mains electricity supply and with
the main switch in the I position);
2.	 Press and hold the button for at least 6
seconds. The
lights come on simultaneously;
3.	 Press the ECO button to set the actual water
hardness (as measured by the indicator pa-
per).
