INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE AC CORD
CONSUMER SAFETY INFORMATION:
A. Before plugging in, check that
your voltage corresponds to that
of the appliance and that the AC
Socket is grounded.
B. If the power supply cord or the
plug is damaged, do not use the
appliance. To avoid any danger, it
is imperative that you have the
power supply cord replaced by an
authorized technician.
C. Do not remove the plug from the
AC Socket by pulling on the cord.
D. Notes on the cord plug:
This appliance has a polarized plug,
To reduce the risk of electric shock,
this plug is intended to fit into a
polarized outlet only one way, If the
plug does not fit fully into the outlet,
reverse the plug, If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician, Do not
attempt to modify the plug in any way.
This appliance is intended for household
use only. The length of the cord used on
this appliance was selected to reduce the
hazards of becoming tangled in, or
tripping over a longer cord. If a longer
cord is necessary an approved extension
cord may be used. The electrical rating of
the extension cord must be equal to or
greater than the rating of the oven. Care
must be taken to arrange the extension
cord so that it will not drape over the
countertop or tabletop where it can be
pulled on by children or accidentally
tripped over.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
CLEANING YOUR COFFEE MAKER
After brewing coffee, make sure the unit has completely cooled and then clean
the coffee maker as follows:
1. Discard used coffee grounds.
2. Clean the carafe, carafe lid, filter basket, drip tray, drip tray shelf, frothing
device, espresso filter, nylon filter, measuring spoon and espresso handle
in either hot, sudsy water, or the top rack of a dishwasher. To remove
stains on the carafe, scrub with baking soda or a mild cleanser. For hard to
remove stains, fill the carafe with hot tap water and add 2 tablespoons of
dishwasher detergent. Let it sit overnight, then wash and rinse.
3. Clean the coffee maker’s exterior and “Keep Warm” plate with a soft, damp
cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads, and never immerse
the coffee maker in water.
4. Make a cleaning solution consisting of one part vinegar and two parts
water, then fill water tank.
5. Turn the unit on to begin brewing but be sure no coffee was added to the
coffee filter. The unit should brew your solution only. DO NOT CONSUME
THIS LIQUID.
6. When finished brewing, turn the coffee maker off again and discard the
cleaning solution.
7. Put the empty carafe back on the “Keep Warm” plate and turn the maker
on for a complete drip coffee brew cycle to flush out the remaining cleaning
solution.
8. Clean the carafe, carafe lid and filter basket in either hot, sudsy water, or
the top rack of a dishwasher.
CARING FOR YOUR CARAFE
A damaged carafe may result in possible burns from hot liquid, so please
follow the tips below to keep your carafe from breaking:
• Do not allow liquid to evaporate from the carafe while on the “Keep Warm”
plate, or heat the carafe when it is empty.
• Never use abrasive scouring pads or cleansers, they will scratch and
weaken the glass.
• Do not place the carafe on or near a hot gas or electric burner, in a heated
over or in a microwave oven.
• Avoid rough handling and sharp blows to the carafe.
MINERAL DEPOSITS AND CLOGGING (ESPRESSO MAKER)
Mineral deposits left by hard water can clog your maker. Excessive steaming
or a prolonged brewing cycle are signs that a cleaning is needed. The
frequency of flushing out deposits is affected by your usage and water
hardness. In areas of hard water, more frequent flushing of deposits is
necessary. During cleaning, more steaming occurs than when brewing coffee,
and there may be some spitting. Flush deposits as follows:
1. Insert four parts water to one part white vinegar into the water reservoir
until full.
