IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using electrical appliances always follow the safety precautions below.
Using the appliance
- Read all instructions.
- This machine is manufactured to make espresso and brewed
coffee and to dispense hot water. Use care to prevent scalding
due to water jets or any improper use of the machine.
- This appliance is intended to be used in household and similar
applications such as:
• staff kitchen areas in shops, offices and other working environments;
• farm houses;
• hotels, motels and other residential type environments;
• bed and breakfast type environments.
- This machine is intended for household use only. Any other use
is considered improper and therefore dangerous.
- The machine must be turned on only when being used. After
use, it must be turned off by switching the power button to the
“0” position (Fig.1) and disconnecting the plug from the power
outlet.
- Do not touch hot surfaces. The water, steam and coffee dispensed
from the machine may cause burns.
- The machine is not designed to be used by people (including
children younger than 8 years old) with limited physical, mental or
4
-
sensory abilities or insufficient
1
experience and/or skills, unless
they are supervised by a person
responsible for their safety, who
provides instructions on how to
use the appliance.
Children must be kept under supervision to prevent them from
playing with the appliance.
Cleaning and maintenance shall not be made by children unless
they are older than 8 and supervised. Keep the appliance and its
cord out of reach of children aged less than 8 years.
Use the machine only indoors. Protect from weather. Do not use
outdoors.
To protect against fire, electric shock or personal injury do not
immerse the cord, plug or the body of the machine in water or
any other liquid.
Do not place the machine on, or near, electrical or gas burners
or inside a hot oven.
Using attachments not recommended by the manufacturer may
result in fire, electric shocks or personal injury.
Before unplugging the machine make sure that the power button
is in the “0” position (Fig.1).
Do not pull the plug out by the cord and never touch it with wet
hands.
Do not carry or pull the coffee machine by the cord.
- To reduce the risk of injury, do not drape the cord over the countertop or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped
over unintentionally.
- In case of fire, extinguish with carbon dioxide (CO2). Do not use
water or powder extinguishers.
- Never obstruct the vents on the base of the machine.
Installation of the machine
- Read the instructions carefully.
- Do not install the machine in an area where the temperature may
reach 0°C/32°F or lower (if water freezes, the appliance may be
damaged) or higher than 40°C/104°F.
- Check that the mains electric voltage corresponds to the requirements indicated on the machine data plate. Connect the machine
only to a properly grounded power outlet with a minimum rating
of 6 A for models powered at 230 Vac, and 15 A for models
powered at 120 Vac.
- If the plug and the outlet are not compatible, have the plug
replaced with a proper one by an authorized service center.
- Place the machine on a countertop away from water taps and
sinks.
- After removing the packaging, check that the appliance is in
perfect condition before installation.
- Do not leave the packaging materials within children’s reach.
Cleaning the machine
EN
-
Unplug the machine before cleaning.
Wait until the machine is cool before cleaning.
Remove the water tank by pulling it up slightly and then outward.
Clean the body and attachments with a wet cloth and then wipe
with a non-abrasive dry cloth. Do not use detergents.
- Do not expose the machine to extended jets of water or immerse
it in water, partially or fully.
In case of malfunctioning
Do not use the appliance if the cord or plug are damaged or if the
appliance shows signs of malfunctioning or has been damaged in
any way. Take the machine to the nearest authorized service center
for checks or repairs.
If the power cord is damaged it must be replaced by the manufacturer
or an authorized service center.
In case of damage or malfunction, turn off the appliance and do
not tamper with it. For repairs contact a service center authorised
by the manufacturer and request the use of original spare parts
only. Failure to comply with these instructions may compromise
the safe operation of the machine and will result in the forfeiture
of warranty rights.

IMPORTANT: SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Improper use of the appliance
- The manufacturer is not liable for accidents caused by non-compliance with existing legislation on electrical grounding systems.
- The manufacturer is not liable for possible damage caused by
improper, incorrect or unreasonable use.
Power-supply cord instructions
a) A short power-supply cord is to be provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
b) Extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised
in their use.
c) If extension cord is used:
1) The marked electrical rating of extension cord should be at
least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance;
2) If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord
should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord; and
3) The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape
over the countertop or table top where it can be pulled on by
children or tripped over.

RECOMMENDATIONS
To enjoy a high quality coffee remember to:
Change water in the water tank daily.
Preferably use water with a total hardness of less than 12 French degrees to reduce deposits in
the machine.
Use warm cups.
In case the capsule and the selected brewing mode are not correctly paired (espresso
button / brewed coffee capsule +
button) we recommend not to
capsule +
drink the product obtained, as it does not meet quality parameters. However, incorrect pairing of capsule and button will not compromise machine operation.

8 - DESCALING
Read all instructions carefully before performing the cycle in order to familiarise yourself with the process. Duration: about 20 minutes. NOTE: If the operations are not carried out
according to the indicated time, the machine will not start the descaling process. In this case, turn off the machine and repeat steps.
Limescale normally builds up with the use of the machine. Descaling allows to optimise cleaning and to remove limescale deposits from the inside.
If the descaling cycle is interrupted by a power failure or because the machine was turned off incorrectly, you must repeat the entire procedure before you can use the machine.
