INTRODUCTION
This coffee machine will make delicious cups of coffee, espresso and
cappuccino. You can customise the settings of the machine to suit your
personal preferences and tastes.
Coffee has been used in the factory to test the appliance and it is
therefore completely normal that there are traces of coffee in the mill.
This appliance is however guaranteed to be new.
First read the user instructions carefully and completely before
starting to use the appliance, and keep them carefully for future
reference.
Preventative maintenance
Your coffee machine requires preventative maintenance. To guarantee
that the coffee machine works well and reliably, gorenje recommends
having the machine serviced once every 2 to 3 years (after a maximum
8,000 cups).

Tips to make hotter coffee
• After 3 minutes since you last made coffee, you can preheat the
brewing unit by using the menu setting “RINSING (see Rinsing).
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.

of coffee deliver’ touch key 910) or ‘Two cup of coffee deliver’ touch
key (11) again, or by selecting “ESPRESSO CUP” with the ‘Type/
quantity of coffee’ touch key (8).

the tank, otherwise the appliance cannot make any coffee.
It is normal that there is some water left in the water tank when the
message is displayed.
• Every 14 single coffees (or 7 doubles) the appliance displays
“EMPTY WASTE COFFEE CONTAINER”. This means that the waste
coffee container is full and must be emptied and cleaned.
• The appliance counts the number of coffees made. As long as the
waste coffee container is not cleaned, this message remains in
EN 13
USE
place and the coffee machine cannot make any coffee. To clean,
open the service door at the front by pulling the coffee spout,
remove the drip tray, empty it and clean it.
Important!
Always completely extract the drip tray, to avoid that it falls when
removing the grounds container. Empty the grounds container
and clean thoroughly, making sure all residues deposited on the
bottom are removed.
Every time you pull the drip tray out, the waste coffee container
must also be emptied, even if it is not completely full. If this
process is not carried out, the waste coffee container may overfill
when coffee is made and the machine may get blocked.
Never remove the water tank when the appliance is dispensing
coffee. Otherwise, the appliance will not be able to make the
coffee. If the appliance malfunctions, do not contact the service
centre straight away, but first look at the troubleshooting guide. If
this does not help, contact the customer service.

Water hardness
A “PLEASE DESCALE!” message is displayed after the appliance 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,
making descaling less frequent, by programming the appliance based
on the actual lime content in the water used. Proceed as follows:
1. Remove the “Total Hardness Test” strip (in front of your manual).
Dip it fully in the water for a few seconds. Remove it and wait
30 seconds until its colour changes and a number of red dots are
formed. For example, if there are 3 red dots on the test strip, you
must set the water hardness level to 3.
If you no longer have a water hardness test, you can find the data in
the table below.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning
Before performing any cleaning operations, the machine must be
turned off by pressing the main switch (A) and unplugged from the
mains power supply. Never immerse the coffee maker in water.
Aa
Cleaning the coffee machine
Do not use solvents or abrasive detergents to clean the coffee maker.
A soft damp cloth will suffice. Never wash any of the components of
the coffee maker in the dishwasher.
The following parts of the machine must be cleaned regularly:
• Waste coffee container (Q).
• Drip tray (F).
• Water tank (D).
• Coffee spouts (H)
• Pre-ground coffee funnel (U).
• Inside of the machine, accessible after opening the service door (G).
• Brewing unit (L).
Cleaning the waste coffee container (Q)
When “EMPTY WASTE COFFEE CONTAINER” is displayed, the waste
coffee container must be emptied and cleaned. To clean:
• Open the service door on the front of the appliance, extract the drip
tray and clean.
• Clean the waste coffee container thoroughly.
Important! When extracting the drip tray, the waste coffee container
must always be emptied.
Cleaning the drip tray (F)
Important! If the drip tray is not emptied the water might overflow.
This could damage the machine. The drip tray is fitted with a level
indicator (red) showing the level of water it contains. Before the
indicator protrudes from the cup tray, the drip tray must be emptied
and cleaned.
EN 28
MAINTENANCE
To remove the drip tray (F):
1. Open the service door.
2. Remove the drip tray and the waste coffee container.
3. Clean the drip tray and waste coffee container.
4. Replace the drip tray and waste coffee container.
5. Close the service door.
Cleaning the water tank (D)
1. Clean the water tank regularly (about once a month) with a damp
cloth and a little mild washing up liquid.
2. Remove all traces of washing up liquid.
Cleaning the spouts
1. Clean the nozzles periodically using a sponge.
2. Check regularly that the holes in the coffee spout are not blocked.
If necessary, remove coffee deposits with a toothpick.
N
Milk residues left on the nozzle (N) and in the container may
jeapardise correct operation of the appliance.
Each time you use the coffee maker, they must therefore be removed
by cleaning the nozzle with a sponge.
Cleaning the pre-ground coffee funnel
• Check regularly (about once a month) that the pre-ground coffee
funnel is not blocked.
EN 29
MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the inside of the coffee maker
• Check regularly (about once a week) that the inside of the appliance
is not dirty. If necessary, remove coffee deposits with a sponge.
• Remove the residues with a vacuum cleaner.
Cleaning the brewing unit
The brewing unit must be cleaned regularly to avoid the build-up of
coffee encrustations which could cause malfunction.
The brewing unit can only be taken out when the appliance is
switched off by pressing the on/stand by button (Aa). Otherwise,
the coffee machine may be seriously damaged.
Proceed as follows:
1. Turn the appliance off by pressing the on/stand by button (Aa) (do
not switch off the main switch or unplug) and wait for the display
to go off.
2. Open the service door.
3. Remove the drip tray and the waste coffee container.
4. Press the two red release buttons inwards and at the same time pull
the brewing unit outwards
Clean the brewing unit under running tap water without using
detergent. Never clean the brewing unit in the dishwasher.
Do not use washing up liquid to clean the brewing unit. It would
remove the lubricant applied to the inside of the piston.
5. Soak the brewing unit in water for about 5 minutes, then rinse.
6. After cleaning, replace the brewing unit (L) by sliding it onto the
internal support (S) and pin (P) at the bottom, then push the PUSH
symbol fully in until it clicks into place.
