To learn how to operate the appliance correctly, when you use it for the first time, follow the step-by-step
instructions given in the following paragraphs.
4 USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
1. The first time you use the appliance, select the language.
To set English, plug the appliance into the outlet and wait for the appliance to display:
PRESS OK TO select ENGLISH
Press the OK button (fig. 1) for at least 3 seconds until the appliance displays:
ENGLISH selected
The appliance then displays the setting message in English. If you select the wrong language by mistake, follow the instructions in section 17 to choose the right one.
2. After 5 seconds, the appliance displays:
FILL TANK
To fill, remove the tank (fig. 2), rinse and fill with fresh water. Never exceed the MAX line.
Put the tank back and push as far as it will go.
3. Place a cup under the hot water spout (fig. 3). If the water spout is not in place, INSERT WATER SPOUT
is displayed. Attach it as shown in figure 4, making sure the arrow on the spout is lined up with the arrow
on the control panel of the appliance, (fig. 4). The appliance now displays:
PRESS OK
4. Press the OK button (fig. 1) and after a few seconds, a little water will run from the spout (running water
stops automatically)
5. The appliance displays:
TURNING OFF PLEASE WAIT
and it goes off.
9
6. Fill the container with coffee beans (fig. 5).
IMPORTANT: to prevent malfunction, never fill with ground coffee, freeze dried coffee, caramelized beans
or anything else which could damage the appliance.
5 TURNING ON AND PREHEATING
1. Press the
button (fig. 6). The appliance displays:
HEATING UP PLEASE WAIT...
to indicate preheating is underway.
2. Once preheating is completed, the appliance displays
RINSING PLEASE WAIT...
and performs an automatic rinse cycle (a little hot water runs from the spouts and is collected in the drip
tray below).
Tip: if you want a short coffee (less than 2 oz), to make it hotter, fill the cup with this hot rinsing water
first. Leave it for a few seconds then empty it to preheat the cup.
3. The appliance now displays the ready message:
READY strong TASTE
6 PREPARING COFFEE (USING COFFEE BEANS)
1. The appliance is preset to make coffee with a strong taste. You can also choose coffee with a mild or regular taste. To choose the required taste, press the
button (fig. 7). The selected coffee taste will be displayed.
2. Place 1 cup under the spouts to make 1 shot (fig. 8) or 2 cups for 2 shots (fig. 9). For a creamier coffee,
lower the spouts to bring them as close to the cups as possible (fig. 10).
3. Press the
button to make one shot espresso (fig. 11), the
button for two shots espresso and the
button for a long shot.
To change the quantity of coffee delivered automatically into the cup, follow the instructions in section
7.
(The appliance now grinds the beans and starts brewing the coffee into the cup.
Once the desired quantity has been reached, the appliance automatically stops delivering the coffee and
ejects the grounds into the coffee grounds container).
4. After a few seconds, the ready message is displayed again and you can make another coffee.
5. To turn the appliance off, press the
button.
Before going off, the appliance performs an automatic rinse cycle (a little hot water runs out from the
spouts and is collected in the drip tray beneath). Take care to avoid scalds.
NOTE 1: If the coffee is delivered a drop at a time or not at all, turn the grinding coarseness regulator (fig.
12) one click clockwise (see section 8).
Turn one click at a time until the coffee is delivered adequately.
NOTE 2: If the coffee is delivered too fast and is not creamy enough, turn the grinding coarseness regulator
(fig. 12) one click counterclockwise (see section 8).
Avoid turning the grinding coarseness regulator excessively otherwise when you select 2 cups, the coffee may
run out in drips. Mill should only be adjusted while running to prevent jamming.
10
NOTE 3: Tips to make hotter coffee:
• When you turn the appliance on, if you want to make a short coffee (less than 2 oz), use the hot
rinse-through water to preheat the cups.
If 2-3 minutes have passed , since you last made coffee, before making coffee again you must preheat
the infuser by pressing the button
(fig. 13).
Run off the water into the underlying drip tray or alternatively use this water to fill (and then empty) the
cup to be used for the coffee, so as to preheat it.
• Unless preheated, do not use cups that are too thick, as they will absorb too much heat.
• Use cups that have been preheated by rinsing them with hot water or by leaving them for at least 20 minutes on the cup warmer tray on top of the appliance with the appliance on.
NOTE 4: While the appliance is making the coffee, delivery can be stopped at any time by pressing the
,
or
button as previously selected.
NOTE 5: As soon as delivery is complete, to increase the quantity of coffee, simply press and hold the
,
or
button as previously selected, until the desired quantity is reached (this operation must
be performed within 3 seconds from when coffee delivery from the spouts ceases).
NOTE 6: When the appliance displays:
FILL TANK
the water tank must be refilled or the appliance will not make coffee.
(It is normal for there to be a little water left in the tank when the message is displayed).
NOTE 7: The appliance counts the number of coffees made. Every 14 single coffees (or 7 doubles) the appliance displays:
EMPTY GROUNDS CONTAINER
indicating that the grounds container is full and must be emptied and cleaned. Until the grounds container
has been cleaned, the appliance continues to display the message and cannot make coffee.
To clean, open the service door at the front by pulling the coffee spout (fig. 14), remove the drip tray (fig.
15), empty and clean.
Empty the grounds container and clean thoroughly, making sure all residue deposited on the bottom is
removed.
IMPORTANT: When removing the drip tray, the grounds container MUST be emptied, even if it is not completely full. If this is not done, when making your next coffee, the grounds in the container may exceed the
maximum level and block the appliance.
NOTE 8: while the appliance is delivering coffee, never remove the water tank. If it is removed, it will not be
possible to make the coffee and the appliance will display:
GROUND TOO FINE ADJUST MILL AND
INSERT WATER SPOUT AND PRESS OK
To turn the appliance on again, you must insert the water spout (fig. 4), press the OK button and run off water
from the spout for a few seconds.
When using the appliance for the first time, 4-5 cups of coffee need to be made before the appliance
starts to give satisfying results.
11
If the appliance malfunctions, do not contact the service center right away.
The problem can almost always be resolved by following the instructions indicated in sections 18 and 19.
If this is not the case, or for further explanations, contact customer service by calling the number listed in the
warranty or visit www.delonghi.com for a list of service centers near you. (U.S. and Canada)
7 CHANGING THE QUANTITY OF COFFEE IN THE CUP
The appliance is factory preset to automatically deliver the following quantities of coffee:
- 1 shot espresso (when the
button is pressed);
- 2 shots espresso (when the
button is pressed);
- long shot (when the
button is pressed);
To change these quantities, proceed as follows:
- press the button corresponding to the quantity you want to change (
,
or
) for at least
8 seconds until the message "PROGRAM QUANTITY" is displayed and coffee is delivered;
- when the coffee in the cup reaches the required level, press the same button again to memorize the new
amount.
The appliance is now re-programmed with the new settings and displays: READY.
8 REGULATING THE COFFEE MILL
After making the first coffees, if you find that coffee delivery is either too fast or too slow (in drips), the grinding coarseness regulator can be adjusted
Turning it 1 click (1 number) clockwise speeds up coffee delivery (without drips).
Turning it 1 click counterclockwise slows down delivery giving a creamier appearance to the coffee.
These adjustments will only be evident after at least 2 cups of coffee have been brewed.
The grinding coarseness regulator must only be turned when the coffee mill is running.
Turn counterclockwise to obtain finer ground coffee, slower
delivery and a creamier appearance.
Turn clockwise for coarser ground coffee and faster delivery
(not a drop at a time).
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. This appliance is however guaranteed to be new.
12
9 PREPARING ESPRESSO/COFFEE USING GROUND COFFEE (INSTEAD OF BEANS)
• Press the
button (fig. 16) to select the ground coffee function. This disables the coffee mill function.
