Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of a Saeco full-automatic coffee machine! To fully benefit from the
support that Saeco offers, please register your product at www.saeco.com/care.
Read the separate safety booklet carefully before you use the machine for the first time and save it for
future reference.
To help you get the best out of your coffee machine, Saeco offers full support in 3 different ways:
1 The separate quick start guide for first installation and first use.
2 This user manual for more detailed information.
3 Online support and movies: scan the QR code on the front page or visit www.saeco.com/care
Note: This machine has been tested with coffee. Although it has been carefully cleaned, there may be
some coffee residues left. We guarantee, however, that the machine is absolutely new.
First installation
To prepare your coffee machine for use, you need to perform a few simple steps such as filling the
water circuit and activating the AquaClean filter. These steps are shown in the separate quick start
guide.
For the best-tasting coffee, you need to brew 5 coffees initially to allow the machine to complete its
self-adjustment.
The machine has been set up to get the best taste out of your coffee beans. Therefore we advise you
not to adjust the grinder settings until you have brewed 100-150 cups (approx. 1 month of usage).
AquaClean filter
The AquaClean filter is designed to reduce limescale deposits in your coffee machine and provide
filtered water to preserve the aroma and flavor of each cup of coffee. If you use a series of 8
AquaClean filters as indicated by the machine and in this user manual, you don't have to descale your
machine for up to 5000 cups. With each filter you can enjoy up to 625 cups, depending on the
selected coffee varieties and the rinsing and cleaning frequencies.
Preparing the AquaClean filter for activation
Before you place the AquaClean filter in the water tank, you need to prepare it for use:
1 Shake the filter for about 5 seconds (Fig. 2).
2 Immerse the filter upside down in a jug with cold water and wait until no more air bubbles come
out (Fig. 3).
3 Push the filter onto the filter connection to the lowest possible point.
Activating the AquaClean filter
You need to activate every new AquaClean filter that you use. By activating the AquaClean filter, the
machine monitors the capacity of the AquaClean filter and the number of filters used. There are 3
ways to activate the AquaClean filter.
7
English
Page: 9
1. Activating the AquaClean filter during first installation
After switching on for the first time, the machine guides you through the first installation steps such as
filling the water tank, filling the water circuit and activating the AquaClean filter. Simply follow the
instructions on the screen.
2. Activating the AquaClean filter when prompted
Note: Replace the AquaClean filter as soon as the capacity has dropped to 0% and the filter icon
flashes quickly. Replace the AquaClean filter at least every 3 months, even if the machine has not yet
indicated that replacement is required.
Tip: We advise you to buy a new filter when the capacity has dropped to 10% and the filter icon starts
flashing slowly. This ensures that you can replace the filter when the capacity has dropped to 0%.
1 Press the MENU/SPECIAL DRINKS button, scroll to AQUACLEAN FILTER and press the OK button
to confirm.
- The display asks if you want to activate a new filter.
2 Press the OK button to confirm.
- The display automatically updates the number of filters used (Fig. 5).
Note: If you want to replace the AquaClean filter after 8 filters have been used, you first need to
descale the machine. Follow the instructions on the display.
3. Activating the AquaClean filter at any other time
You can start (re)using the AquaClean filter at any time by following the instructions below.
1 Press the MENU/SPECIAL DRINKS button, select MENU and press the OK button to confirm. Scroll
to AQUACLEAN FILTER. Press the OK button to confirm.
- The display shows the numbers of AquaClean filters that have been installed previously from 0
to 8 filters (Fig. 5).
2 Select ON on the display and press the OK button to confirm.
- The display automatically updates the number of filters used (Fig. 5).
- Then the 'machine ready' screen appears with the AquaClean 100% icon to indicate that the
filter has been installed (Fig. 6).
3 Dispense 2 cups of hot water (0.5 l) to complete the activation. Discard this water.
Note: In some situations the machine will tell you that you need to descale the machine before you
can install and activate a new AquaClean filter. This is because your machine has to be completely
limescale-free before you start to use the AquaClean filter. Follow the instructions on the screen.
Using the control panel
Below you find an overview and description of the control panel of the machine. Some of the buttons
have a double function; if applicable the navigation icons appear on the display. Use the buttons next
to this icon to select or confirm your choices.
Use the MENU/SPECIAL DRINKS button to select other drinks and to change settings such as the
water hardness and coffee temperature.

The AquaClean filter was not
prepared properly for
installation or it is clogged.
Remove the AquaClean filter and try to
brew a coffee again. If this works, make
sure the AquaClean filter is prepared
properly before you place it back. Place
back the prepared filter. If this still does
not work, the filter is clogged and needs
to be replaced.

The type of milk used is not
suitable for frothing.
Different types of milk result in different
amounts of froth and different froth
qualities. We have tested the following
milk types which proved to deliver a
good milk froth result: semi-skimmed or
full-fat cow's milk, soy milk and lactose-
free milk. Other types of milk have not
been tested and may result in a small
amount of milk froth.
The milk is splashing. The milk you use is not cold
enough.
Make sure you use cold milk coming
directly from the fridge.
The machine seems to
be leaking.
The machine uses water to
rinse the internal circuit and
brew group. Some water flows
through the internal system
directly into the drip tray. This is
normal.

full' indicator pops up through the drip
tray cover (Fig. 19). Place a cup under
the dispensing spout to collect rinsing
water.
