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. 24).
Before the indicator protrudes from the cup tray,
the drip tray must be emptied and cleaned.

are recommended to purchase one from De’Longhi Customer Services.
To use the filter correctly, follow the instructions
below.
The
light is displayed after a period of time
established according to the water hardness set.
The machine is factory set for a hardness value
of 4. 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.
Installing the filter
