Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of a Saeco full-automatic coffee
machine! To fully benefit from the support that Saeco offers, please register
your product at www.saeco.com/care.
To help you get the best out of your coffee machine, Saeco offers full
support in 4 different ways:
- The separate quick start guide for first installation and first use.
6
English
- This user manual for more detailed information on how to use the
machine, how to keep it clean, how to descale it and how to solve
problems.
- This is the QR code. Scan this code to access instruction videos on how
to brew the best coffees, how to clean the machine and for a list of
frequently asked questions. (www.saeco.com/care)
- The separate booklet with important safety information.
First installation
For first installation, follow the instructions on the separate quick start guide.
Note: This machine has been tested with coffee. Although it has been
carefully cleaned, there may be some coffee residues left. We guarantee,
however, that the machine is absolutely new.
Note: You can install the AquaClean filter during the first installation
procedure (see separate quick start guide). If you skip installation of the
AquaClean filter at first use, you can install it later by entering the menu.
AquaClean filter
The AquaClean filter is designed to reduce limescale deposits in your coffee
machine and provide filtered water to preserve the aroma and flavor of each
cup of coffee. If you use a series of 8 AquaClean filters as indicated in this
user manual, you don't have to descale your machine for 5000 cups.
Note: Your machine has to be completely limescale-free before you start to
use the AquaClean filter. If you did not activate the filter during first
installation, you need to descale the machine before you activate the filter.
Activating the AquaClean filter
Note: Always confirm activation of the AquaClean filter in the machine menu
as described below. You also need to do this after replacing the AquaClean
filter. By activating the AquaClean filter in the machine menu, the machine
monitors the number of filters used. When the filter has been replaced 8
times, the machine reminds you to descale it.

For instructions on how to prepare the AquaClean filter for use, see the
separate quick start guide.

Note: Shake the AquaClean filter for about 5 seconds, immerse it upside

Descaling procedure
When the display asks 'START DESCALING?', you need to descale the
machine. If you do not descale the machine when this message appears on
the display, the machine will eventually stop working properly. In this case,
repairs are not covered by the warranty.
Only use Saeco descaling solution to descale the machine. Saeco descaling
solution is designed to ensure optimal performance of the machine. The use
of other products may damage the machine and leave residues in the water.
You can buy Saeco descaling solution in the online shop at
www.saeco.com/care.
The descaling procedure lasts 23 minutes and consists of a descaling cycle
(20 minutes) and a rinsing cycle (3 minutes). You can pause the descaling or
rinsing cycle by pressing the ESC button. To continue the descaling or
rinsing cycle, press the OK button.
Note: Do not remove the brew group during the descaling procedure.
Warning: Do not drink the descaling solution or the water

machine back on. The machine will heat up and perform an automatic
rinsing cycle.
3 Before brewing any beverages, perform a manual rinsing cycle.
Note: If the descaling procedure was not completed, the machine will
require another descaling procedure as soon as possible.

qualities. We have tested the following
milk types which proved to deliver a
good milk froth result: semi-skimmed or
full-fat cow's milk, soy milk and lactosefree milk. Other types of milk have not
been tested and may result in a small
amount of milk froth.
