11.Softener
Mains water contains insoluble salts, which cause the build-up of lime scale deposits in the boiler and in other parts
of the machine. The softener makes it possible to eliminate or substantially reduce the presence of these mineral salts.
The resin softener has the property of retaining the calcium contained in the water. For this reason, the resins
become saturated after a certain period and must be regenerated with coarse kitchen salt (NaCl, sodium chloride)
or special water softening salt. It is very important to regenerate the softener within the established times.
The regeneration is to be done regularly every 15 days. However, in locations with very hard water, it will be necessary to regenerate more frequently. The same rule can be applied to places where there is a large consumption
of hot water for tea or other uses.
Softener regeneration
Proceed as follows:
• move levers (2) and (5) from left to right;
• Remove the lid by loosening the knob (1);
• Release enough water through the pipe (3) to make room for the amount of salt as required depending on the
model (see table).;
• clean any salt or resin residue from the gasket located on the lid;
• put the lid back in place by screwing the knob (1) down securely and move the lever (2) back from right to left;
• let the salt water drain from the small tube (4) until the water is no longer salty (about 30-60 minutes). The salt
allows the accumulated mineral salts to be released;
• bring the lever (5) from right to left back to its initial position.

The build-up of lime scale deposits in the hydraulic circuit and boiler inhibits thermal exchange,
thus compromising proper operation of the machine. Heavy incrustation in the boiler may cause
long machine shutdowns and in any case invalidate any guarantee, because this symptom
indicates that regeneration has been neglected.
In order to keep the softener and hence the machine in perfect operating condition, it is necessary to perform
regeneration periodically based on the use of the softener and the hardness of the water that is used.

Checks and Maintenance
Maintenance must be carried out in order to ensure perfect safety and efficiency of the machine over time. In particular, it is advisable to ask the Technical Service to carry out an overall check of the machine at least once a year.
Weekly Monthly
GAUGE
Keeep the boiler pressure between 0.8 and 1.4 bar.
X
GAUGE
Periodically check water pressure during coffee delivery: check the pressure indicated
on the gauge, which must be between 8 and 9 bar inclusive.
X
FILTERS and PORTAFILTERS
Check the condition of the filters. Check for any damage on the edge of the filters and
check whether any coffee grounds settle in the coffee cup.
X
GRINDER-DOSER
Check the dose of ground coffee (between 6 and 7 gr. per stroke) and check the degree
of grinding. The grinders must always have sharp cutting edges. Their deterioration is
indicated by the presence of too much powder in the grounds. You should replace the flat
grinders after every 400/500 kg of coffee. For conical grinders, replace every 800/900 kg.
X
SOFTENER
The build-up of lime scale deposits in the hydraulic circuit of the machine indicates
that regeneration has been neglected. Use care in areas where the water is very hard.
It will be necessary to regenerate at more frequent intervals, likewise if there is high
consumption of hot water for tea and so forth.
ENGLISH
Intervention
X
i
If the problem cannot be resolved, turn the machine off and contact Technical Service. Do not
attempt any sort of repairs.
i
The descaling of the machine must be carried out by
​​ professional technicians to ensure that
such operation does not lead to release of hazardous materials for food use.
13.
Suggestions on how to obtain a good cup of coffee
• To obtain high-quality coffee, it is important that the hardness of the water used does not exceed 4-5 °f (French
degrees). If the water hardness exceeds these values, it is advisable to use a water softener.
• avoid using a water softener if the water hardness is less than 4 °f.
• if the taste of chlorine in the water is particularly strong, a special filter should be installed.
• it is not advisable to keep large stores of coffee beans. Never grind large amounts of coffee. Use the amount the
doser holds and if possible use it by the end of the day. Never purchase ground coffee as it expires quickly.
• after the machine has not been used for a period of time (2-3 hours) make a few dry runs.
• make sure to carry out regular cleaning and maintenance.

List of hazards
This chapter describes possible hazards for the user if the specific safety standards (described in this manual) are
not adhered to.
The appliance must be connected to an efficient grounding system
If this is not done, the appliance can be a source of dangerous electrical discharges as it is no longer able to discharge
electricity to earth.
Do not use running water for washing
The use of pressurized water directly on the machine can seriously damage the electrical equipment. Never use
water jets to wash any part of the appliance.
Be careful of the steam and hot water nozzles
During use, the steam and hot water nozzles become very hot and are thus a potential source of danger. Handle
these parts carefully. Never direct steam or hot water jets directly on parts of the body.
Do not work on the machine when it is supplied with electrical power
Before carrying out any maintenance or repair work on the machine you must turn it off using the main switch or,
better yet, disconnecting the mains connection terminals. Never remove any body panel when the machine is supplied with electrical power.
Never work on the hydraulic system before having emptied it
All work regarding the hydraulic system and the related boiler is to be avoided when there is still water and pressure
in the system. Thus you must empty it beforehand by closing the mains tap and dry-running the delivery group for
a short time. Switch off the machine and turn on all the steam and water taps. When the pressure is zero, empty the
boiler completely by unscrewing the special pipe fitting located on the lower part of boiler.
If the above procedure is not carried out correctly, opening any part of the hydraulic system can cause a sudden
outburst of superheated water under pressure.
Lever machines
Never lower the lever if there is no coffee in the filter, or if the filter holder is not installed on the group: the sudden
upwards movement of the lever may damage the appliance and injure individuals.
Gas machines
Periodically check for gas leaks in the system by applying a soapy solution to the ducts.
For safety reasons, close the gas heating system when the machine is not in use (at night or during hours of closure)
Use of the appliance
This espresso coffee machine is an appliance for professional use only. Any other type of use is considered incorrect
and therefore dangerous. Never allow children or people not familiar with it to use the machine.
Non-observance of the above-described standards can cause serious harm to people, property or animals.
Never work on the electronic apparatus when the machine is still supplied with electrical energy.
Shut down the machine completely by disconnecting it from the mains before carrying out any operation.
