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 to Earth
green and yellow blue brown
13 amp
Fuse
earth
neutral
live
Blue to
neutral
Brown to
live
Cord Clamp
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

Fill the container with coffee beans (fig. 8).
Place under the coffee spouts:
- 1 cup, if you want 1 coffee (fig. 9);
- 2 cups, if you want 2 coffees.
Lower the spouts as near as possible to the
cup. This makes a creamier coffee (fig. 10).
4. Press the button corresponding to the number 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.
Adjusting the coffee mill
The coffee mill is set by default to prepare coffee 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:
• While the machine is making coffee, delivery
can be interrupted at any moment by pressing one of the two coffee buttons (
or
).
• At the end of delivery, to increase the quantity

Once the coffee has been made, the appliance is
ready to use again.
Please note :
The grinding adjustment knob must only be turned 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 anticlockwise towards “1” (do
not turn more than one click
at a time otherwise the coffee could be delivered a drop
at a time).
Please note:
For hotter coffee, see the section “Tips for a hotter 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” section on page 19.
• Lights may be displayed on the control panel during use. Their meaning is given in the
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.

position. Steam is delivered from the cappuccino 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 direction. (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.
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 anticlockwise as far as it will go to the

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 sulphamic or acetic based descalers. Their use invalidates the guarantee. Failure to descale the

SETTING WATER HARDNESS
The machine is now reprogrammed with the new
water hardness setting.
The
light comes on after a period of time
established according to water hardness.
The machine is set by default for a hardness value 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.
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION

Measuring water hardness
1. Remove the “TOTAL HARDNESS TEST” indicator 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.
