CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Before performing any
maintenance
and/or
cleaning operation, unplug
the power cord.
The Manufacturer is not
liable for damage or
malfunctions caused by a
wrong
or
lack
of
maintenance.
Never use direct jets of
water onto the appliance
and/or its components.
The coffee brewing process also entails the extraction of
oil from the ground coffee. Deposits of these oils build up
over time and worsen the taste of coffee and machine
operation. To remove these oils it is essential to perform
regular cleaning operations, in order to preserve the
quality of the coffee brewed and to keep the machine in
good working conditions for a longer period.
It is easy if you follow these quick and simple steps after
each brewing cycle:
• Let water circulate through the head of the brew unit.
• Dispense steam from the steam wand.
• Clean the steam wand with a damp cloth immediately
after use.
• Remove the filter holder disk and wash away all oil traces.
10.1
General Notes for Correct
Operation
10
Non-removable
components
and
the
machine itself must be
cleaned,
when
not
differently specified, only
by using cold or lukewarm
water, with a non-abrasive
sponge and a damp cloth.
32
Periodic maintenance and cleaning will keep the machine in
good working order for a longer time and ensure
compliance with basic hygienic standards.
Follow the instructions and timing indicated in the
"MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE" to ensure correct
operation of the appliance.
English
10.2
Cleaning and Scheduled

The machine and its parts
should in any case be
cleaned every week.
The appliance and its parts
should be cleaned and
washed following a period
of inactivity.

Do not clean the electric
parts with wet cloths
and/or with degreasing
detergents. Remove any
dust residues with a jet of
dry compressed air or with
an antistatic cloth.
33
English
10.2.2
Cleaning the Hot Water
Wand
The hot water wand must be cleaned externally with a
damp cloth after each use and, in any case, once a week.
Never wash the wand with
abrasive pads as it could
get damaged.
Before
performing
this
operation, make sure that the
wand is cold: Danger of Burning.
Never wash the wand with
abrasive pads as it could
get damaged.
A cleaning pin is supplied with the machine in case the
steam wand is stuck. The pin is located below the water
tank lid, in the upper part of the machine. The pin has two
ends: the longest one is to be used to clean the hole at the
base of the steam wand. In case the wand is still stuck,
unscrew and remove it. Clean it again with the pin and
then wash it under running water.
10.2.4
10.2.3
Steam Wand Cleaning
10
It is essential to keep the steam wand clean to ensure
maximum efficiency of the steam function. A mix of
caramelized or dry milk on the wand worsens steam
dispensing and the milk frothing capacity of the machine.
Before
performing
this
operation, make sure that the
wand is cold: Danger of Burning.
Clean the steam wand with a damp cloth after each use
and dispense a small amount of steam. In case there are
residues of caramelized or dry milk, move the wand
towards the drip tray and dispense steam for about 10
seconds. Leave the cloth on the steam wand. Any residues
of caramelized or dry milk will then be easily removed.
Repeat the process if the wand is still dirty.
34
Cleaning the Drip Tray
Empty and wash the drip tray daily; this operation must
also be performed when the float is raised.
Remove the drip tray.
English
Empty the drip tray and wash it. Reinsert the drip tray.
10.2.7
Cleaning the Brew Unit, the
Filter Holder and the Filters
Rinse the filters and the filter holder with hot water after
each use and then carefully dry them.
To remove any coffee residue from the brew unit, let
water circulate and clean the unit and around the edge
using a damp cloth.
In the event that dispensing holes are clogged, use a brush
with thin bristles to remove coffee residues. Alternatively
also use the pin supplied with the machine. The pin is
located below the water tank lid, in the upper part of the
machine. The pin has two ends: the shortest one is to be
used to clean the dispensing holes of the filter holder.
10.2.5
Cleaning the Water Tank
The water tank should be cleaned every time it is filled.
10.2.8
Brew unit gasket
10.2.6
Cup-warming Surface and
Machine Outside
Clean the cup-warming surface and the machine outside
using a damp cloth and dry.
Do not use metal or
abrasive sponges to avoid
scratching
the
outer
surface.
During long periods of
inactivity,
it
is
recommended not to leave
the filter holder attached to
the head of the brew unit
because it reduces the
service life of the gasket.
The gasket will lose its elasticity over time and must be
replaced - depending on the use - every 12 months on
average. Water and steam leaks from the head of the brew
unit while brewing coffee are signals that the gasket is
deteriorating.
35
10
The gasket - placed on the lower part of the brew unit
head - allows to brew coffee without leaks if it is sealed
with the filter holder.
English
10.2.9
DESCALING
Limescale is a natural part of the water used for machine
operation. It needs to be removed regularly as it may clog
the water and coffee circuit of your appliance.
The machine electronics show on the display when
descaling is needed. This operation needs to be carried
out before the appliance stops working properly, as in this
case repair is not covered by warranty.
Use the Saeco descaling product only. Its formula has been
specifically designed to ensure better machine
performance and operation for its whole operating life. If
correctly used, it also avoids alterations in the dispensed
product.
The descaling solution and the complete "Maintenance Kit"
may be purchased at your local dealer or at authorised
service centres.
Never drink the descaling
solution or any products
brewed until the cycle has
been completed.
