The settings and quantities have been reset to the default
values.
Please note!
Programming the one coffee quantity also programmes the
quantity of coffee in the corresponding two cups.
Adjusting the coffee mill
The coffee mill is set by default to prepare coffee correctly and
should not require regulating initially.
However, if after making the first few coffees you find that the
coffee is either too weak and not creamy enough or delivery is
too slow (a drop at a time), this can be corrected by adjusting
the grinding adjustment dial (fig. 8).
MAKING COFFEE
Selecting the coffee taste
Turn the coffee taste selection dial (B9) to set the required taste.
Turning it clockwise increases the quantity of coffee beans the
appliance will grind and therefore the strength of the coffee obtained. Turn the dial to MIN for an extra mild coffee and to MAX
for an extra strong coffee.
Please note!
The grinding adjustment dial must only be turned when the
coffee mill is in operation.
11
If the coffee is delivered too slowly or
not at all, turn one click clockwise towards “7”.
For fuller bodied creamier coffee, turn
one click anticlockwise towards “1” (do
not turn more than one click at a time
otherwise the coffee could be delivered
a drop at a time). These adjustments will only be evident after
at least 2 cups of coffee have been delivered. If this adjustment
does not obtain the desired result, turn the dial another click.
Once the coffee has been made, the appliance is ready to make
the next drink.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION (UK ONLY)
Before using this appliance ensure that the voltage indicated on the product corresponds with the main voltage in your home, if you
are in any doubt about your supply contact your local electricity company.
The flexible mains lead is supplied connected to a B.S. 1363 fused plug having a fuse of 13 amp capacity.
Should this plug not fit the socket outlets in your home, it should be cut off and replaced with a suitable plug, following the procedure outlined below.
Note: Such a plug cannot be used for any other appliance and should therefore be properly disposed of and not left where children
might find it and plug it into a supply socket - with the obvious consequent danger.
Please note: We recommend the use of good quality plugs and wall sockets that can be switched off when the machine is not in
use.
IMPORTANT: The wires in the mains lead fitted to this appliance are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Green and Yellow to Earth
GREEN AND YELLOW
BLUE
BROWN
EARTH
NEUTRAL
LIVE
13 amp Fuse
Blue to
neutral
Brown to live
Cord Clamp
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the
terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
- The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter E or
by the earth symbol
or coloured green or green and yellow.
- The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.
- The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.
When wiring the plug, ensure that all strands of wire are securely retained in each terminal. Do not forget to tighten the mains
lead clamp on the plug. If your electricity supply point has only two pin socket outlets, or if you are in doubt, consult a qualified
electrician.
Should the mains lead ever require replacement, it is essential that this operation be carried out by a qualified electrician and should
only be replaced with a flexible cord of the same size.
After replacement of a fuse in the plug, the fuse cover must be refitted. If the fuse cover is lost, the plug must not be used until a
replacement cover is obtained. The colour of the correct replacement fuse cover is that of the coloured insert in the base of the fuse
recess or elsewhere on the plug. Always state this colour when ordering a replacement fuse cover.
Only 13amp replacement fuses which are asta approved to B.S. 1362 should be fitted.
This appliance conforms to the Norms EN 55014 regarding the suppression of radio interference.
Warning - this appliance must be earthed
