To correctly learn how to use the machine, when starting it for the first
time, carefully follow the step-by-step instructions described in the following paragraphs.
4 PREPARING THE COFFEE MAKER
4.1 FILLING THE WATER TANK
• Remove the water tank (Fig.1), rinse it and fill it with fresh water, never
exceeding the MAX line. When removing the tank, the milk frother
must always be positioned towards the center of the machine, otherwise the tank cannot be removed.
• Replace the tank, pushing it all the way in.
Fig.1
4.2 FILLING THE CONTAINER WITH COFFEE BEANS
• Open the lid on the coffee bean container (Fig.2).
• Fill the container with coffee beans.
• Close the lid.
WARNING: To avoid malfunctions, never fill with ground coffee,
freeze-dried coffee or caramelized beans, or other objects that may
damage the machine.
Fig.2
4.3 USING THE COFFEE MAKER FOR THE FIRST TIME
1. Check that the water tank is full and the power cable is plugged into the
power outlet.
2. Move the milk frother towards the outside and place a cup underneath
(Fig.3). Then turn the machine on by pressing the
button (Fig.4).
3. IMMEDIATELY AFTER, WITHIN A MAXIMUM OF 30 SECONDS, turn the
steam knob counter-clockwise until it stops (Fig.5) (it is normal for the
machine to make some noise).
4. After few seconds, a little water will release from the milk frother. When
the cup is 1/3 full, turn the steam knob half a turn clockwise (Fig.6) to terminate the flow of water.t.
5. Wait for the
and
lights to stop flashing. The flashing lights indicate the machine is preheating. Before the lights stop flashing the
machine will automatically perform a rinse cycle and a little hot water will
release from the coffee spouts and collect in the drip tray. Once the lights
illuminate steadily, the machine has reached the ideal temperature for
making coffee.
Tip: for a hotter short coffee (less than 2 oz.); first fill the cup with the hot rinsing water. Then leave it inside for a few seconds (before emptying it) so as to
pre-heat the cup.
6. At this point, the machine is ready for use.

5 PREPARING COFFEE (USING COFFEE BEANS)
1) Before preparing the coffee, always make sure that the green and
lights are steady and the water tank and coffee bean container are full.
2) Adjust the coffee flavor dial (Fig. 7) to set the desired taste of the coffee.
Turning the knob clockwise increases the quantity of coffee beans that
the machine will grind, and thus makes the taste of the coffee stronger.
When using the machine for the first time, the correct position of the
knob can be found by trial and error. Make sure not to turn it too far
clockwise, otherwise the coffee will be delivered too slowly (in drips), in
particular when preparing two cups of coffee.
3) Adjust the coffee quantity selector dial (Fig. 8) to set the quantity of
coffee required. Turning the knob clockwise makes a longer coffee.
When using the machine for the first time, the correct position of the
knob can be found by trial and error.
4) Place one cup under the coffee spout to make 1 coffee (Fig. 9) or 2
cups for 2 coffees (Fig. 10). For a creamy coffee, lower the coffee
spout to bring them as close to the cups as possible (Fig. 11).
5) Press the button (Fig. 12) to make one cup of coffee or the
button (Fig. 13) to make 2 coffees. At this point the machine grinds
the beans, runs a short pre-infusion cycle, a pause and then completes the delivery.
Once the desired quantity has been reached, the machine automatically stops delivering the coffee and discharges the grounds into the
coffee grounds container.
6) After a few seconds, when both the green and
indicator lights
are steady, another coffee can be made.
7) To switch the machine off, press the
button. (Before switching off, the
machine automatically runs a rinse cycle: a little hot water runs out of the
spout and is collected in the drip tray underneath - be careful, to avoid
scalds ). If the machine is not switched off using the
button, it will switch
itself off and run a brief rinse cycle 3 hours after the last operation.
Fig.5
Fig.6
NOTE 1: If the coffee is delivered a drop at a time or not at all, turn the grinding coarseness regulator (fig. 17) one click clockwise (see section 6). Turn a
click at a time until the coffee is delivered satisfactorily.
NOTE 2: If the coffee is delivered too fast and is not creamy enough, turn the coffee flavor dial (fig. 7) clockwise. Proceed by trial and error to find the correct position of the dial. Make sure not to turn the dial too far clockwise, otherwise the
delivery may become too slow (in drops), in particular when making two cups of
coffee. If, after several coffees, the cream is still not satisfactory, also turn the grinding coarseness regulator (Fig. 17) one click counter-clockwise (see section 6).
NOTE 3: Tips on making hotter coffee:
1) If, when the machine has just been turned on, a short cup of coffee is required
(less than 2 oz), use the hot rinsing water to pre-heat the cups (see suggestion in
section 4.3, point 5). If, on the other hand, more than 2-3 minutes have elapsed
since the last coffee was made, before preparing another coffee the infuser must
be pre-heated, pressing the
button (Fig. 14).
Fig.7
Fig.8
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
10
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 pre-heat it.
2) Unless preheated, do not use cups that are too thick, as they will absorb too much
heat.
3) Use cups that have been previously heated by rinsing them with hot water or
alternatively by leaving them for at least 20 minutes on the cup warmer tray on top
of the machine with the appliance on.
NOTE 4: while the machine is making the coffee, the delivery can be stopped
at any time by pressing the button (Fig. 12) or
button (Fig. 13), as previously selected.
NOTE 5: as soon as delivery is complete, to increase the quantity of coffee,
simply press and hold the
button (Fig. 12) or
button (Fig. 13), 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).
Fig.9
NOTE 6: when the
indicator light comes on (section 12, point 1), the water
tank must be filled, otherwise the coffee cannot be made. The water tank can
only be removed if the milk frother is first positioned towards the center of the
machine. (It is normal for there to be a little water left in the tank when the
indicator light comes on).
NOTE 7: the machine counts the number of cups of coffee made. Each 14 single
cups (or 7 double cups), the
light switches on steady (section 12 point 3), warning the user that the grounds container is full and must be emptied and cleaned. Until
the grounds container has been cleaned, the light will remain on and the machine
cannot deliver coffee. To clean the container, open the service door on the front
(pulling the handle, Fig. 15), the
light flashes (see section 12, point 9); remove the
drip tray (Fig. 16), empty and clean. Empty and carefully clean the grounds container, making sure to remove all the residue that may be deposited on the bottom. Also,
dry off any condensation that may have formed that may have formed inside the
machine under the drip tray. 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 making your next coffee, the grounds the grounds container may fill
over the maximum level and block the machine.
Fig.10
NOTE 8: the grinder in the coffee maker may become worn over time and consequently the coffee will change taste as it is ground more coarsely.
To resolve this problem, re-set the grinding coarseness by adjusting the regulator
(Fig. 17) one click counter-clockwise (as described in chap. 6).
NOTE 9: if the machine is not used for a long period, the infuser must be
cleaned, as described in section 10.2.
Fig.11
NOTE 10: while the machine is delivering coffee, never remove the water tank. If it
is removed, the machine will not be able to make the coffee and the "
" indicator light will flash. If you try to make another coffee, the machine becomes noisy
and does not make the coffee. To reset the machine, turn the steam knob counterclockwise as far as it will go and run off water from the milk frother for a few seconds.
Fig.12
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
11
When using the machine for the first time, 4-5 cups of coffee need to
be made before the machine starts to give satisfying results.
If the machine malfunctions, do not contact the service center right away.
The problems can almost always be resolved by following the instructions
indicated in sections 12 and 13. If this is not the case, or for further
explanations, contact 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).
Fig.13
6 ADJUSTING THE COFFEE GRINDER
The coffee grinder must not be adjusted, at least initially, as it has already
been factory preset to deliver the correct quantities of coffee.
Nonetheless, after having made the first coffees, if delivery is too fast or
too slow (in drips), the grinding coarseness regulator can be adjusted
(Fig. 17). Turning one click (one number) clockwise achieves faster delivery
of the coffee (without drips).
Turning one click counter-clockwise slows down delivery giving a creamier
appearance to the coffee.
These adjustments will only be evident after the delivery of at least 2 cups
of coffee.
The grinding coarseness regulator must only be turned when the coffee
grinder is running.
Fig.14
Turn counter-clockwise for finer ground
coffee and consequently slower delivery
and a creamier appearance.
Turn clockwise for coarser ground coffee
and consequently faster delivery (not a
drop at a time).
Fig.15
NOTE 1: Coffee has been used to factory
test the appliance and it is , therefore, completely normal for there to be traces of coffee
in the grinder (mill). This appliance is, however, guaranteed to be new.

7 PREPARING ESPRESSO COFFEE WITH GROUND COFFEE (INSTEAD OF
BEANS)
1. Press the
button to select the ground coffee function (Fig. 18).
The ground coffee light will illuminate indicating the function has
been the function has been selected and the coffee grinder has
been disabled.
2. Lift the lid in the center, place one measuring scoop of ground coffee
in the funnel (see fig. 19) and proceed as described in section 5.
Note: You can make just one coffee at a time by pressing the
button.
NOTE 1: Never add the ground coffee when the machine is off,
to prevent it from spilling inside the machine.
Fig.18
NOTE 2: Never add more than 1 measure, otherwise either the
machine will not make the coffee and the pre-ground coffee will
be lost inside the machine, dirtying it, or the coffee will be run off
in drips.
NOTE 3: When measuring the quantity of coffee to be added, use
the measuring scoop supplied only.
Fig.19
NOTE 4: Only use ground coffee for espresso espresso coffee
makers. Do not use not use coffee beans, freeze-dried coffee or
other materials that may damage the machine.
NOTE 5: If you add more than one measure of pre-ground coffee
and the funnel blocks, use a plastic knife to push the coffee down
(Fig. 20), then remove and clean the infuser and the machine, as
described in section 10.2 "Cleaning the infuser".
3. Once the coffee has been delivered, to make coffee using the
beans again, deactivate the ground coffee function by pressing the
button again (the light goes off and the coffee grinder is
enabled for operation again).
8 HOT WATER DELIVERY
• Always make sure the green
and
lights are on steady.
• Turn the cappuccino frother towards the outside of the machine (Fig.
3).
• Position a container underneath the milk frother (Fig. 3).
• Press the
button (fig. 21). The
light comes on to indicate that
the function has been selected.
• Turn the steam knob half a turn in counter-clockwise until it stops (Fig.
5): hot water will come out of the milk frother and start to fill the container underneath.
• To stop the flow of hot water, turn the knob all the way clockwise (Fig.

9 PREPARING CAPPUCCINOS (USING STEAM)
• Move the cappuccino frother outwards (fig. 3).
• Place an empty container under the cappuccino frother (fig. 3). Turn
the steam knob a half turn counter-clockwise as far as it will go (the
light flashes fig. 22). Run off the steam mixed with water for a
few seconds until only steam is given off.
• Then interrupt steam delivery by rotating the knob clockwise as far
as it will go (fig. 6).
• Empty the container and fill it with about 3.5 oz. of milk for each
cappuccino to be prepared. In choosing the size of the container,
bear in mind that the milk increases in volume by 2 or 3 times. You
are recommended to use skim or 2% milk at refrigerator temperature (about 41°F/5°C).
• Dip the cappuccino frother into the into the container with milk (fig.
23), taking care not to immerse the raised line on the cappuccino
frother (indicated by the arrow in fig. 24).Turn the steam knob a
half turn counter-clockwise as far as it will go (take care to avoid
scalds). Steam is discharged from the cappuccino maker, giving the
milk a creamy frothy appearance. To obtain a creamier froth, dip
the cappuccino frother into the milk and rotate the container with
slow movements from the bottom upwards. (You should not discharge steam for more than two minutes at a time).
• Once the desired temperature has been reached, stop the steam by
turning the steam knob clockwise until it stops (Fig. 6).
• Prepare the coffee .as described in section 5, using large enough
cups, then fill with the frothed milk prepared previously. The cappuccino is ready. Sweeten to taste and if desired, sprinkle the froth
with a little cocoa powder.
NOTE 1: The cappuccino frother must always be cleaned after use.
Proceed as follows:
• Release a little steam for a few seconds by turning the steam knob
counter-clockwise until it stops (Fig. 5).
With this operation, the steam spout discharges any milk that may
be left inside. IMPORTANT: For hygiene reasons, this operation
should always be performed, so as to prevent previously used milk
from remaining inside the cappuccino frother.
• Turn the knob clockwise as far as it will go. With one hand, hold the
cappuccino frother handle firm and with the other unscrew the cappuccino frother cover itself by rotating clockwise and extracting
downwards (fig. 25).
• Remove the steam nozzle from the delivery spout by pulling it

• close the service door.
10.3 DESCALING
Due to the continuous heating of the water used to make the coffee, over
time it is normal for the tubing inside the machine to fill with lime scale.
When the
light starts flashing (section 12 - point 5), it is time to
descale the machine.
NOTE: when the
light switches on, the coffee maker can still be used to
prepare coffee.
Proceed as follows:
• Empty the tank and pour in the contents of one bottle (125 ml) of DURGOL descaler plus one liter of water. For subsequent descaling operations, descaling solution can be purchased from authorized technical
service centers.

10.4 SETTING THE WATER HARDNESS
The
light (section 12 - point 5) switches on after after the machine has
been operated for a factory set period of time calculated on the basis of the
maximum quantity of lime scale which may be contained in the water used. If
necessary, this period of operation can be extended, thus making the descaling operation less frequent, by programming the machine based on the actual
lime content in the water used. Proceed as follows:
• after having removed the "Total hardness test" strip (enclosed on page 2)
from its packaging, dip it fully in the water for a few seconds, then pull it
out and wait around 30 seconds (until it changes color anda number of
squares are formed);
• check that the machine is off (all the indicator lights are off);
• press the
button (Fig. 14) and hold it for at least 5 seconds. The four

come on.
• press the
button (Fig.18) repeatedly until the number of lights that are
on coincides with the number of red squares on the test strip (for example,
if there are 3 red squares on the test strip, press the button
until 3 indicator lights come on together,

).
• press the
button (Fig. 14) to save the data. The coffee maker is now
programmed to provide the descaling warning when effectively necessary,
based on the actual hardness of the water.
