Do not use solvents or detergents which could damage the plastic surface. • After each use session, use the empty capsules provided in the package to clean the infusion parts of the appliance. This must not be done with the same capsule more than five times. When you have used up all the capsules supplied (about 10 cleaning cycles), you can use a used coffee capsule, by simply removing the paper seal and emptying and cleaning the capsule. Cleaning operations are performed in the same way as making coffee, using the amount of water contained in an espresso cup. RECOMMENDATION: Place a container under the outlet to collect the water. • Periodically empty out the used capsule/drip tray (15) and clean it, removing it from its housing (fig. B). Proceed as described below to clean the steam/water dispenser (13): • Pull the plastic part of the steam dispenser downward and remove it. Clean it, eliminating residues of the beverage heated. • Immerse the steam/water dispenser (13) in a small amount of water in a tall, narrow container. • Dispense water as described in the “heating water” section, dispensing water for about 5 seconds to clean the circuit inside the machine. • Check to see if the hole at the top of the dispenser and the water/steam hole are blocked up. If so, free them with a needle. CAUTION: Be very careful when cleaning the steam/water dispenser, as its parts may become very hot. IMPORTANT NOTES: • If you use a function requiring a certain operating temperature, and then switch to another function requiring a lower operating temperature, the “ready” indicator light (10) will flash until the appliance reaches the appropriate temperature for the selected function. Only at this point will the indicator light stop flashing. • It is important to turn off the switch (4a) before switching from one function to another. 11 ENGLISH L O W WAT E R If the water level in the tank is low, the indicator light (9) will come on. To continue working, fill it again as described in the “Preparation” section. ser switch (4a). Keep the dispenser at least 3 cm under the surface of the milk while foaming the milk, but do not allow it to touch the bottom of the container as this would stop steam from coming out, and make sure that the little hole at the top of the dispenser is free and not immersed in liquid. • When you have finished foaming the milk, press the switch (4a) again and remove the dispenser from the milk. Important! Do not remove the dispenser from the milk until you have finished dispensing steam. IMPORTANT: If you wish to make a cup of espresso with the third unit immediately after using the steam function, you must first let the appliance cool down to the right temperature. If you attempt to make coffee immediately after using steam, the appliance will not make coffee until it has cooled down to the right temperature for making coffee. You must therefore wait a few minutes for the temperature to cool down or let the hot water out as follows: • Place a tall, narrow container under the water/steam dispenser. • Set the function selector (6) to water. • Dispense hot water by pressing the switch (4a); the “ready” indicator light (10) will start flashing. • As soon as the indicator light (10) stays on steadily, you may make coffee if you set the function switch (6) to coffee. It is a good idea to clean the steam/water dispenser (13) after each use as described in the “maintenance” section.
