Adjusting the height of the
Drip Tray
Temperature Indicator light
The Temperature Indicator Light (9) flashes slowly
when the boiler is heating, this is normal.
You can adjust the height of the Drip Tray to
reduce splashing when dispensing coffee into
smaller cups such as espresso cups.
The Temperature Indicator Light will flash fast and
the coffee maker will not work when there is a
problem. If this occurs check;
• The water tank is full and correctly installed.
• The steam control is set to off.
• Any air locks have been removed.
Sleep mode
Please note your coffee maker has a sleep mode
to save energy. If your coffee maker is not used
for 8 minutes, your coffee maker will enter sleep
mode. The Temperature Indicator Light (9) flashes
slowly in this mode.
Press the two Drip Tray Adjustment Buttons (15)
to release the spring catch and raise or lower the
drip tray.
To wake the machine, slide and release either the
one (6) or two cup (7) switch.
Emptying the Drip Tray
Using the correct type of
coffee grinds
When the water in the Drip Tray is full, the Empty
Drip Tray Level Indicator (16) will change colour.
When making espresso coffee it is important to
use the correct type of coffee grinds. Espresso
coffee is a very fine grind which is designed to
work with espresso filters. Using other types of
coffee in an espresso filter (such as filter coffee
grinds,) will result in a poorer tasting coffee and
could clog the filter.
Likewise when making filter coffee you should
use filter coffee grinds to achieve the best
results. Using espresso grinds can cause the filter
to clog and overflow.
E.S.E. Pods
Remove the Drip Tray (11) from the appliance and
The coffee maker is compatible with both E.S.E.
pods (a compact coffee pod with a paper filter
covering,) as well as ground espresso coffee.
When making espresso with an E.S.E. pod, use
the One Cup/ E.S.E Pod Filter (26).
Clean the Drip Tray with a damp cloth before
Care and cleaning
Disconnect the appliance from the mains supply.
Make sure the appliance has completely cooled
Simply wipe the Steam Wand (2) and exterior with
a clean, damp cloth.
Do not use any abrasives or metal scourers as
this will damage the finish on the unit.
The Espresso Filter Holder (24) and Espresso
Water Tank (13) should be washed after each use
by rinsing them under water. To assist in keeping
47160 rev3_Layout 1 02/09/2011 13:57 Page 8
the Filter Holder clean we recommend you
periodically run the machine with the Espresso
Filter Holder in place, without coffee, using water
Rinse the Filter Water Tank occasionally with cold
water. Do not use a cloth as any residue or lint
may be left behind to clog the coffee maker.
Should the holes in the Espresso Filter become
blocked with coffee grinds, use a fine bristled
brush to help clean.
When your coffee maker is not being used, we
recommend that you do not leave the Espresso
Filter Holder attached to the machine as this will
reduce the life of the gasket.
Wash the Filter Coffee Jug (23), Jug Lid (22), Filter
Holder (19) Removable Permanent Mesh Filter
(21) in warm soapy water. Rinse and dry all parts
thoroughly. Refit the Filter Holder.
Care must be taken to ensure that the non-drip
valve situated on the bottom of the filter holder is
not damaged during cleaning.
Remove the Drip Tray (11) from the appliance and
remove any spilt coffee and water then clean
them with a damp cloth or a damp sponge.
You must clean the Steam Wand and cover
immediately after each use, after it has cooled
down. Briefly use the steam setting to clear any
remaining milk out of the Wand and Cover.
Remove the Steam Wand Cover, place under
warm running water to remove excess milk. If the
Steam Wand becomes blocked, use a small pin to
clean more thoroughly.
• WARNING: Steam from the Steam Wand is
extremely hot and can scald.
• IMPORTANT: Never wash your coffee machine
accessories in a dishwasher.
• Never use harsh or abrasive cleaners.
• NO parts are suitable for cleaning in a
Descaling - espresso
Place an empty container under the Brewing
Head (3) to gather the descaled hot boiled water.
Connect the appliance to the mains supply.
Slide the On/Off button (10) and wait for the
Indicator Light (9) to stop flashing.
Slide the Large Cup Switch (7), water will flow
through the unit.
Slide the switch again, dispensing until the water
tank is empty.
Repeat the process with cold water only to flush
the system.
Descaling - filter coffee
• If you live in a hard water area, we recommend
that your coffee maker is descaled at regular
intervals, e.g. every 2-3 months. In areas of
moderately hard water, you should descale every
6 months.
• If the water filters through more slowly than usual,
it is a sign that descaling is necessary.
• We recommend you use a proprietary liquid
descaler which is especially made for coffee
makers and plastic kettles. Follow the instructions
on the bottle or sachet, and then operate the
coffee maker with just water 3 times before
making filter coffee.
• Do not use a kettle descaler unless the packet
specifically states it is suitable for coffee makers.
