short cord instructions
- A short power cord is provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over
a longer cord.
- Longer, detachable power supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is
exercised in their use.
- If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating should be at least as great as the electrical
rating of the appliance. If the appliance is provided with 3- wire, grounding type cord, the extension
should be a GROUNDING TYPE 3 - WIRE CORD. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not
drape over the counter-top or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
- Your product is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one blade wider
than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you
are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to
fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
polarized plug.
Attention: The appliance is not intended for use
by persons (including children) with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of
experience and knowledge, unless they have been
given supervision or instruction concerning use
of the appliance by a person responsible for their
safety. Children should be supervised to ensure
that they do not play with the appliance.

After the packaging has been removed, check the integrity of the appliance and the presence of all accessories.
Do not use the appliance in the presence of obvious
damage. Contact the De’Longhi customer service center..
Installing the appliance
The following safety measures must be complied with
when installing the appliance:
• The appliance could be damaged by the penetration
of water.
Do not position the appliance near sinks or faucets.
• The appliance could be damaged if the water it
contains freezes. Do not install the appliance in a

Pre-heating the coffee machine
It is advised to pre-heat the coffee machine as follows
in order to obtain an espresso coffee at the right temperature:
1. Press the ON/OFF button (the relative indicator light
switches on) (fig. 4) and attach the empty filterholder to the machine (fig. 5) by fitting filter holder
into place and turning from left to right.
2. Place a cup under the filter-holder. Use the same
cup in which the coffee is to be served so that it can
be pre-heated.
3. Wait until the OK light comes on (fig. 6) and then
press the coffee button (fig. 7). Allow the water to
run until the OK light switches off and then stop the
water by pressing the coffee button again (fig. 7).
4. Empty the cup, wait for the “OK” light to switch on
again and repeat the same operation again.
(It is normal for a small, harmless puff of steam to be
released when the filter-holder is removed).
Connecting the appliance
Attention! Make sure that the electric voltage
corresponds with that indicated on the data plate
on the base of the appliance.
1. After having pre-heated the machine as described
in the previous paragraph, insert the ground coffee filter into the filter-holder, making sure that the
projection is correctly inserted into the relative seat
as indicated in fig. 8. Use the smallest filter for one
coffee or the larger one to make two cups of coffee.
2. To prepare one coffee, fill the filter with a level measuring scoop of ground coffee, about 2 tsp (7g)
(fig. 9). If you wish to prepare two cups of coffee,
fill the filter with two less-than-level measuring
scoops of ground coffee (1 tbsp or 12g). Fill the
filter with small amounts at a time to prevent the
coffee spilling out.
• Only connect the appliance to correctly installed
socket with minimum rating of 12A and efficient
• In the case of incompatibility between the socket
and the plug on the appliance, have the plug replaced by a qualified technician.
• The power supply cable on this appliance must
never be replaced by the user as special tools are
needed for this operation. Contact a De’Longhi
authorized customer service center if the cable is
damaged or must be replaced, in order to avoid all
Filling the water tank
1. Open the water tank lid (fig. 1) and then lift the tank
to remove it (fig. 2).
2. Fill the tank with fresh water but do not pass MAX.
(fig. 3). Re-position the tank by pressing it lightly in place to open the valve situated on the base of the
tank itself.
Attention: for correct use, before filling the filter
with ground coffee always make sure there is no
residual coffee in the filter from the previous infusion.
3. Distribute the ground coffee evenly and press it
lightly using the coffee tamper (fig. 10).
Pressing the ground coffee is very important to ob8
tain a good espresso. If you press too hard, the coffee will run out slowly and the crema will be dark. If
you press too lightly, the coffee will run out too fast
and the crema will be very light.
Remove any excess coffee from the rim of the filterholder and attach it to the machine: turn the grip to
the right (fig. 5) to prevent water from escaping. Position the cup or cups under the filter-holder
spouts (fig. 11). It is recommended to warm the
cups before making the coffee by running them under hot water or leaving them to pre-heat on the
cup warmer for at least 15-20 minutes (fig. 12).
Make sure that the OK light (fig. 6) is on (if it is off,
wait for it to switch on) and press the coffee button
(fig. 7). Once the desired amount of coffee has been
obtained, press the same button again (fig. 7). (It is
recommended not to run the coffee for more than
45 seconds).
Turn the grip from right to left to release the filterholder.
3. Insert the pod, centering it as far as possible on the
filter (fig. 14). Always follow the instructions of the
pod pack for correct positioning of the pod on the
filter. 4. Attach the filter-holder to the machine, by inserting
the filter handle on the left side of the machine and
then turn to the right (fig 5) to prevent water from
escaping. Ensure that handle is tightly attached to
the machine (fig. 5).
5. Proceed as in points 5, 6 and 7 in the previous section.
1. Prepare the espresso coffee as described in the previous paragraphs, using cups that are large enough
to hold both the espresso and frothed milk..
2. Press the steam button (fig. 15).
3. In the meantime, fill a container with about 1/2 cup
of milk for every cappuccino to be prepared. The
milk must be cold and at refrigerator temperature
(not hot!). When choosing the frothing container
consider that the volume of the milk will increase
by 2 or 3 times.
Scalding hazard! To prevent sprays, do not release the filter-holder while the machine is dispensing coffee.
Information: it is recommended to use semiskimmed milk at refrigerator temperature (41°F/
8. To remove the used coffee, lock the filter using the
lever in the grip and let the coffee fall out by knocking the over-turned filter-holder (fig. 13).
9. Turn the machine off by pressing the on/off button
(fig. 4).
4. Position the container with the milk under the frother.
5. Wait for the indicator light next to the steam button
to switch on (fig. 16). This indicates that the boiler
has reached the ideal temperature for the production of steam
6. Open the steam tap (2) for a few seconds to remove
any water present in the circuit. Close the tap.
7. Dip the frother into the milk a few millimeters (fig.
17) making sure not to immerse the raised line on
the cappuccino maker (indicated by the arrow in
fig. 17). Turn the knob counterclockwise (fig. 18)
for at least half a rotation. Steam escapes from the
frother giving the milk a creamy appearance and increasing its volume. To obtain a creamier froth, dip
the frother into the milk and turn the container with
slow movements from the bottom upwards.
8. When the volume of the milk has doubled, dip the
frother far down into the frothing container and
continue to heat the milk. When the desired temperature (ideal value is 140°F / 60°C) and the desired milk froth have been reached, interrupt the
steam by turning the steam knob clockwise and
release the steam button. Use the on/off button to
switch the machine off (fig. 4) (The on/off indicator
light switches off).
9. Pour the frothed milk into the cups containing the
previously-prepared espresso coffee. The cap-
Attention: Before using the machine for the first
time all accessories and internal circuits must be
washed by making at least five cups of coffee without using ground coffee.
1. Pre-heat the machine as described in the “PREHEATING THE COFFEE MACHINE” chapter, making
sure that the filter-holder is attached to the machine. Hotter coffee is obtained in this way.
Information: use pods that comply with the ESE Standard: this
will be indicated on the packaging
by the icon to the right.
The ESE Standard is a system accepted by the leading coffee pod manufacturers
and allows espresso coffee to be made simply
and without making a mess.
2. Place the small filter in the filter-holder, making
sure that the projection is correctly inserted into
the relative seat as indicated in fig. 8.
puccino is ready: add sugar at will and if desired,
sprinkle a little powdered chocolate on top of the
Maximum delivery of 60 seconds is recommended.
• if more than one cappuccino is to be prepared, first
make all of the coffees and then prepare the milk for
all of the cappuccinos;
• if more coffee must be prepared after the milk has
been frothed, allow the boiler to cool first otherwise
the coffee will be burned. To cool it, position a container under the filterholder spouts (fig. 11), press the steam button and
allow water to run out until the steam function light
switches off: then prepare the coffee. Do not deliver steam for more than 60 seconds at
a time or froth more than 3 times consecutively. Danger! Before performing any cleaning operations of the external parts of the appliance, switch
the machine off, remove the plug from the outlet
and let the machine cool down.
Cleaning and maintenance of the filter
Clean the filter-holder and ground coffee filters about
every 300 coffees and when the coffee drips through
the filter-holder and does not flow completely:
• Remove the filter from the filter-holder.
• Unscrew the filter cap (fig. 22) in the direction indicated by the arrow on the cap itself.
• Remove all parts of filter by pushing the black rubber holder and metal disc out of filter. Remove the
metal disc from its backing. (There should be 5
separate pieces to the filter)
• Rinse all components and clean the metal filter disc
thoroughly using hot water and a brush (fig. 23).
Check that the holes in the metal filter disc are not
blocked. If this is not the case, clean them using a
pin (see fig. 24).
• Re-mount the filter by placing the metal disc and
backing inside the black rubber holder as indicated
in figure 25. Make sure that the plastic disc pin is
inserted inside the hole in the black plastic holder
as indicated by the arrow in fig. 25.
• Re-insert the black rubber holder that contains
metal disc and backing into the metal holder (fig.
26), making sure that the pin is inserted into the
hole of the support itself (see arrow fig. 26).
• Finally, tighten the filter cap .
The warranty is not valid if the cleaning operations described above are not performed on a regular basis.
Attention: the frother must always be washed after use to ensure proper functioning and sterility.
Proceed as follows:
1. Discharge a small amount of steam for a few seconds (see points 2,5 and 6 of the previous paragraph) by turning the steam knob (fig. 18). By
doing this, the frother empties any milk left inside.
Switch the machine off by pressing the ON/OFF button.
2. Use one hand to hold the cappuccino tube and the
other to release the frothing cover by turning it
clockwise and pulling it downwards (fig. 19).

5. Make sure that the two holes indicated by the arrows in fig. 21 are not blocked. Clean using a pin if
necessary. 6. Re-mount the frothing nozzle by inserting it firmly
upwards into the steam tube.
7. Re-mount the frothing cover by inserting it upwards
and turning it counterclockwise .
Cleaning the boiler outlet
About every 300 coffees the espresso boiler outlet must
be cleaned as follows:
• Make sure that the coffee machine is not hot and
the plug is disconnected from the socket;
• Use a screwdriver to remove the screw that fixes
the espresso boiler outlet (fig. 27);
• Remove the boiler outlet;
• Clean the boiler using a damp cloth (fig. 27);
• Clean the boiler outlet disc thoroughly using hot
water and a brush. Check that the holes are not
blocked. If this is not the case, clean them using a
pin (fig. 24).
• Rinse the boiler outlet disc under the tap, rubbing
• Re-mount the boiler outlet, paying attention to position it correctly on the gasket.
The warranty is not valid if the cleaning operations described above are not performed on a regular basis.
1. Switch the machine on by pressing the on/off button
(fig. 4). Wait for the OK light to switch on (fig. 6).
2. Position a container under the cappuccino maker.
3. Press the coffee button (fig. 7) and turn the steam
