To correctly learn how to use the appliance, when starting it for the first time, carefully follow the step-by-step
instructions described in the following paragraphs.
4 USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
1. The first time you use the appliance, select the language.
To set English, plug the appliance into the outlet socket and wait for the following message to be displayed:
PRESS OK TO INSTALL ENGLISH
While the message is displayed, press the
shows:
button (fig. 1) for at least three seconds until the display
ENGLISH INSTALLED
The appliance then displays the setting message in English. If you select the wrong language by mistake, follow the instructions in section 17 to choose the right one.
2. After 5 seconds, the appliance displays:
FILL TANK
To fill, remove the tank (fig. 2), rinse and fill with fresh water. Never exceed the MAX line.
Put the tank back and push as far as it will go.
3. Place a cup under the hot water spout (fig. 3). (If the water spout is not in place, INSERT WATER SPOUT
is displayed. Attach it as shown in figure 4, making sure the arrow on the spout is lined up with the arrow
on the control panel of the appliance, fig. 4). The appliance now displays:
PRESS OK
4. Press the OK button (fig. 1) and after a few seconds, a little water will run from the spout (running water
stops automatically)
9
5. The appliance displays:
TURNING OFF PLEASE WAIT
and it goes off.
6. Fill the container with coffee beans (fig. 5).
IMPORTANT: to prevent malfunction, never fill with ground coffee, freeze dried coffee, caramelized beans
or anything else which could damage the appliance.
5 TURNING ON AND PREHEATING
1. Press the
button (fig. 6). The appliance displays:
HEATING UP PLEASE WAIT...
to indicate preheating is underway.
2. Once preheating is completed, the appliance displays
RINSING PLEASE WAIT...
and performs an automatic rinse cycle (a little hot water runs from the spouts and is collected in the drip
tray below).
Tip: if you want short coffee (less than 2 oz), to make it hotter, fill the cup with this hot rinsing water first.
Leave it for a few seconds then empty it to preheat the cup.
8. The appliance now displays the ready message:
READY STANDARD TASTE
6 PREPARING COFFEE (USING COFFEE BEANS)
1. The appliance is preset to make coffee with a normal taste. You can also choose coffee with an extralight, light, strong or extra-strong taste. To choose the required taste, press the
button (fig. 7). The
selected coffee taste will be displayed.
2. Place 1 cup under the spouts to make 1 coffee (fig. 8) or 2 cups for 2 coffees (fig. 9). For a creamier coffee, lower the spouts to bring them as close to the cups as possible (Fig. 10).
3. Press the
button to make a short coffee (fig. 11), the
button for a normal coffee or the
button for a long coffee.
To make 2 coffees, press the button twice (within 2 seconds).
To change the quantity of coffee delivered automatically into the cup, follow the instructions in section
7.
(The appliance now grinds the beans and starts brewing the coffee into the cup.
Once the desired quantity has been reached, the appliance automatically stops delivering the coffee and
ejects the grounds into the coffee grounds container).
4. After a few seconds, the ready message is displayed again and you can make another coffee.
5. To turn the appliance off, press the
button.
Before going off, the appliance performs an automatic rinse cycle (a little hot water runs out from the
spouts and is collected in the drip tray beneath. Take care to avoid scalds).
NOTE 1: If the coffee is delivered a drop at a time or not at all, turn the grinding coarseness regulator (fig.
12) one click clockwise (see section 8).
Turn one click at a time until the coffee is delivered adequately.
10
NOTE 2: If the coffee is delivered too fast and is not creamy enough, turn the grinding coarseness regulator
(fig. 12) one click counterclockwise (see section 8).
Avoid turning the grinding coarseness regulator excessively otherwise when you select 2 cups, the coffee may
run out in drips.
NOTE 3: Tips to make hotter coffee:
• When you turn the appliance on, if you want to make a short coffee (less than 2 oz), use the hot rinsethrough water to preheat the cups.
If 2 to 3 minutes have passed since you last made coffee, before making coffee again you must preheat
the infuser by pressing the
button (fig. 13).
Run off the water into the underlying drip tray or alternatively use this water to fill (and then empty) the
cup to be used for the coffee, so as to preheat it.
• Unless preheated, do not use cups that are too thick, as they will absorb too much heat.
• Use cups that have been preheated by rinsing them with hot water or by leaving them for at least 20
minutes on the cup warmer tray on top of the appliance with the appliance on.
NOTE 4: while the appliance is making the coffee, delivery can be stopped at any time by pressing the
or
button as previously selected.
,
NOTE 5: as soon as delivery is complete, to increase the quantity of coffee, simply press and hold the
,
or
button as previously selected, until the desired quantity is reached (this operation must be
performed within 3 seconds from when coffee delivery from the spouts ceases).
NOTE 6: when the appliance displays:
FILL TANK
the water tank must be refilled or the appliance will not make coffee.
(It is normal for there to be a little water left in the tank when the message is displayed).
NOTE 7: every 14 single coffees (or 7 doubles) the appliance displays:
EMPTY GROUNDS CONTAINER
indicating that the grounds container is full and must be emptied and cleaned.
Until the grounds container has been cleaned, the appliance continues to display the message and cannot
make coffee.
To clean, open the service door at the front by pulling the handle (fig. 14), remove the drip tray (fig. 15),
empty and clean.
Empty the grounds container and clean thoroughly, making sure all residues deposited on the bottom are
removed.
IMPORTANT: when removing the drip tray, the grounds container MUST be emptied, even if it is not completely full. If this is not done, when next making coffee the grounds in the container may exceed the maximum level and block the appliance.
NOTE 8: while the appliance is delivering coffee, never remove the water tank. If it is removed, it will not be
possible to make the coffee and the appliance will display:
GROUND TOO FINE ADJUST MILL AND
INSERT WATER SPOUT AND PRESS OK
To turn the appliance on again, you must insert the water spout (fig. 4), press the
water from the spout for a few seconds.
button and run off
11
When using the appliance for the first time, 4-5 cups of coffee need to be made before the appliance starts to give satisfying results.
If the appliance malfunctions, do not contact the service center right away.
The problem can almost always be resolved by following the instructions indicated in paragraphs 18 and 19.
If this is not the case, or for further explanations, contact the customer service by calling the number listed in
the warranty or visit www.delonghi.com for a list of service centers near you. (U.S. and Canada)
7 CHANGING THE QUANTITY OF COFFEE IN THE CUP
The appliance is factory preset to automatically deliver the following quantities of coffee:
- short coffee (1.35 oz) (when the
button is pressed);
- normal coffee (2.7 oz) (when the
button is pressed);
- long coffee (4 oz) (when the
button is pressed);
To change these quantities, proceed as follows:
- press the button corresponding to the quantity you want to change (
,
or
) for at least 8
seconds then release until the message "PROGRAM QUANTITY" is displayed and coffee is delivered;
- when the coffee in the cup reaches the required level, press the same button again to memorize the new
amount.
The appliance is now re-programmed with the new settings and displays: READY.
8 REGULATING THE COFFEE MILL
The coffee grinder is preset in the factory to prepare coffee correctly and should not require regulating initially.
However, after making the first coffees, if you find that coffee delivery is either too fast or too slow (in drips),
the grinding coarseness regulator can be adjusted (fig. 12).
Turning it 1 click (1 number) clockwise speeds up coffee delivery (without drips).
Turning 1 click anticlockwise slows down delivery giving a creamier appearance to the coffee.
These adjustments will only be evident after at least 2 cups of coffee have been delivered.
The grinding coarseness regulator must only be turned when the coffee mill is on.
Turn one click anticlockwise to obtain slower delivery and a
creamier appearance (finer ground coffee).
Turn one click clockwise for faster delivery (not a drop at a time)
(coarser ground coffee).
(Coffee has been used to factory test the appliance and it is therefore completely normal for there to be traces of coffee in the mill. This appliance is however guaranteed to be new).
12
9 PREPARING ESPRESSO/COFFEE WITH PRE-GROUND COFFEE (INSTEAD OF BEANS)
• Press the
button (fig. 16) to select the ground coffee function. This disables the coffee mill function.

• After using the appliance with pre-ground coffee, to go back to making coffee using beans, deactivate
the ground coffee function by repressing the
button to prepare the grinder for operation again.
NOTE 1: Never add the ground coffee when the appliance is off to avoid it from being dispersed inside the
appliance.
NOTE 2: Never add more than one level measuring scoop, otherwise either the
appliance will not make the coffee, the ground coffee will be lost inside the appliance, dirtying it, or the coffee will run off in drips and the message "GROUND TOO FINE
ADJUST GRINDER AND TURN STEAM KNOB" will be displayed.
NOTE 3: When dosing the quantity of coffee to be added, use the measuring scoop supplied only.
NOTE E: Do not use freeze-dried coffee or other materials that could damage the appliance
NOTE: If the funnel blocks due to moisture inside the appliance or if more than one measuring scoop of preground coffee has been used, use a knife to push the coffee down (Fig. 18), then remove and clean the infuser and appliance as described in paragraph 15.2 "Cleaning the infuser".
