Electrical requirements (UK ONLY)
Before using this appliance ensure that the voltage indicated on the product corresponds with the main voltage in your home, if you are in any doubt
about your supply contact your local electricity company.
The flexible mains lead is supplied connected to a B.S. 1363 fused plug having a fuse of 13 amp capacity.
Should this plug not fit the socket outlets in your home, it should be cut off and replaced with a suitable plug, following the procedure outlined
below.
Note: Such a plug cannot be used for any other appliance and should therefore be properly disposed of and not left where children might find it and
plug it into a supply socket - with the obvious consequent danger.
N.B. We recommend the use of good quality plugs and wall sockets that can be switched off when the machine is not in use.
important: the wires in the mains lead fitted to this appliance are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Green and Yellow to Earth
green and yellow blue brown
13 amp
Fuse
earth
neutral
live
Blue to
neutral
Brown to
live
Cord Clamp
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug,
proceed as follows:
- The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter E or by the earth
symbol
or coloured green or green and yellow.
- The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.
- The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.
When wiring the plug, ensure that all strands of wire are securely retained in each terminal. Do not forget to tighten the mains lead clamp on the plug.
If your electricity supply point has only two pin socket outlets, or if you are in doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
Should the mains lead ever require replacement, it is essential that this operation be carried out by a qualified electrician and should only be replaced
with a flexible cord of the same size.
After replacement of a fuse in the plug, the fuse cover must be refitted. If the fuse cover is lost, the plug must not be used until a replacement cover
is obtained. The colour of the correct replacement fuse cover is that of the coloured insert in the base of the fuse recess or elsewhere on the plug.
Always state this colour when ordering a replacement fuse cover.
Only 13amp replacement fuses which are asta approved to B.S. 1362 should be fitted.
This appliance conforms to the Norms EN 55014 regarding the suppression of radio interference.
Warning - this appliance must be earthed

downwards.
3. Wash all parts of the cappuccino maker thoroughly with warm water.
4. Make sure the two holes shown by the arrows in fig. 17 are not blocked. If necessary,
clean with a pin.
5.Replace the inner section by inserting it carefully onto the adjustable tube, then insert the
steam nozzle and turn anticlockwise to lock
it in place.
Please note!
For a richer denser froth, use skimmed or

button, empty the drip tray.
SETTING WATER HARDNESS
The
light comes on after a period of time
established according to water hardness.
The machine is set by default for a hardness value of 4 (very hard water).
The machine can also be programmed according
to the hardness of the mains water in the various
regions so that the machine needs to be descaled
less often.
1. Turn the machine on.

1. Remove the “TOTAL HARDNESS TEST” indicator paper attached to this manual from its
pack.
2. Immerse the paper completely in a glass of
water for one second.
3. Remove the paper from the water and shake
lightly.
After about a minute, 1, 2, 3, or 4 red squares
form, depending on the hardness of the water. Each square corresponds to one level.

is still too slow, repeat the correction procedure, turning the grinding adjustment knob
another click until delivery is correct
The grounds container is too full or more
than 3 days have passed since you last made
coffee (this guarantees correct hygiene of the
machine).
Empty the grounds container and clean, then
replace. Important: when removing the drip
tray, the grounds container must be emptied,
even if it contains few grounds. If this is not
done, when you make the next coffees, the
