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.
Read the separate safety booklet carefully before you use the machine for the first time and save it for
future reference.
To help you get the best out of your coffee machine, Saeco offers full support in 3 different ways:
1 The separate quick start guide for first installation and first use.
2 This user manual for more detailed information.
3 Online support and movies: scan the QR code on the front page or visit www.saeco.com/care
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.
First installation
To prepare your coffee machine for use, you need to perform a few simple steps such as filling the
water circuit and activating the AquaClean filter. These steps are shown in the separate quick start
guide.
For the best-tasting coffee, you need to brew 5 coffees initially to allow the machine to complete its
self-adjustment.
The machine has been set up to get the best taste out of your coffee beans. Therefore we advise you
not to adjust the grinder settings until you have brewed 100-150 cups (approx. 1 month of usage).
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 by the machine and in this user manual, you don't have to descale your
machine for up to 5000 cups. With each filter you can enjoy up to 625 cups, depending on the
selected coffee varieties and the rinsing and cleaning frequencies.
Preparing the AquaClean filter for activation
Before you place the AquaClean filter in the water tank, you need to prepare it for use:
1 Shake the filter for about 5 seconds (Fig. 2).
2 Immerse the filter upside down in a jug with cold water and wait until no more air bubbles come
out (Fig. 3).
3 Push the filter onto the filter connection to the lowest possible point (Fig. 4).
Activating the AquaClean filter
You need to activate every new AquaClean filter that you use. By activating the AquaClean filter, the
machine monitors the capacity of the AquaClean filter and the number of filters used. There are 3
ways to activate the AquaClean filter.
1. Activating the AquaClean filter during first installation
After switching on for the first time, the machine guides you through the first installation steps such as
filling the water tank, filling the water circuit and activating the AquaClean filter. Simply follow the
instructions on the screen.
8
English
2. Activating the AquaClean filter when prompted
Replace the AquaClean filter when the screen shows the message 'Replace AquaClean filter?'. Then
follow the instructions on the screen to activate the filter properly.
3. Activating the AquaClean filter at any other time
You can start (re)using the AquaClean filter at any time by following the instructions below.
1 Tap the Settings icon and then select 'AquaClean' (Fig. 5).
2 Select 'new' and when the activation screen appears, press the start/stop button.
3 Follow the instructions on the screen.
Note: In some situations the machine will tell you that you need to descale the machine before you
can install and activate a new AquaClean filter. This is because your machine has to be completely
limescale-free before you start to use the AquaClean filter. Follow the instructions on the screen.
Measuring water hardness
During first installation, you have to set the water hardness. Follow the steps on the screen and use
the water hardness test strip supplied. To set the water hardness later, tap the Settings icon and
select 'water hardness'.
1 Immerse the water hardness test strip in tap water for 1 second. Then wait for 1 minute.
2 Check how many squares have turned red.
3 Select the appropriate water hardness setting and tap the OK icon to confirm.

CLEAN level. Then place it back into the machine.
Place a large container (1.5 l) under the coffee dispensing spout.
Follow the instructions on the screen to start the descaling procedure. The descaling procedure
lasts approx. 30 minutes and consists of a descaling cycle and a rinsing cycle.
Once the descaling cycle is finished, you need to rinse the water tank and water circuit. Follow the
instructions on the screen.
Place a new AquaClean filter in the water tank.
Tip: Using the AquaClean filter reduces the need for descaling!
What to do if the descaling procedure is interrupted
You can exit the descaling procedure by pressing the on/off button on the control panel. If the
descaling procedure is interrupted before it is completely finished, do the following:
1 Empty and rinse the water tank thoroughly.

back on. The machine will heat up and perform an automatic rinsing cycle.
3 Before brewing any drinks, perform a manual rinsing cycle. To perform a manual rinsing cycle, first
dispense half a water tank of hot water and then brew 2 cups of pre-ground coffee without adding
ground coffee.
Note: If the descaling procedure was not completed, the machine will require another descaling
procedure as soon as possible.
