1 GENERAL INFORMATION
The coffee machine is suitable for preparing 1 or 2 cups of
espresso coffee and is provided with a swivel steam and hot
water wand. The controls on the front side of the machine are
labelled with easy-to-read symbols.
The machine has been designed for domestic use and is not
suitable for professional, continuous use.
person responsible for their safety, or they are instructed by
this person on how to properly use the machine.
Power Supply
Connect the coffee machine only to a suitable socket. The voltage must correspond to that indicated on the appliance label.
Power Cord
Never use the coffee machine if the power cord is defective or
damaged. If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced
by the manufacturer or by its authorised service centre. Do not
pass the power cord around corners, over sharp edges or over
hot objects and keep it away from oil.
Do not use the power cord to carry or pull the coffee machine.
Do not pull out the plug by the power cord or touch it with
wet hands.
Do not let the power cord hang freely from tables or shelves.
For the Safety of Others
Prevent children from playing with the machine.
Children are not aware of the risks related to electrical household appliances.
Do not leave the machine packaging materials within the
reach of children.
Danger of Burns
Never direct jets of overheated steam and/or hot water towards
yourself or others. Always use the handles or knobs provided.
Do not disconnect (remove) the filter holder during coffee
brewing. Hot water drips may spill out of the brew unit during
the warm-up phase.
Never brew coffee when button ( ) is pressed because this
means that the steam function is on and the temperature of
the boiler is too high.
Location
Place the coffee machine in a safe place, where there will be no
danger of overturning or injury.
Hot water or overheated steam may spill out of the machine:
Danger of scalding!
Do not keep the machine at a temperature below 0°C. Frost
may damage it.
Do not use the coffee machine outdoors.
In order to prevent its housing from melting or being damaged, do not place the machine on very hot surfaces and close
to open flames.
Cleaning
Before cleaning the machine it is necessary to turn off all buttons and then remove the plug from the socket.
Wait for the machine to cool down. Never immerse the machine in water!
• 16 •
It is strictly forbidden to tamper with the internal parts of the
machine.
Water left in the tank for several days should not be consumed.
Wash the tank and fill it with fresh drinking water.
Suitable Location for Operation and Maintenance
To ensure a correct and efficient performance of the coffee machine, we recommend following the instructions below:
• Choose a level surface;
• Choose a location that is sufficiently well-lit, clean and
near an easily reachable socket;
• Allow for a minimum distance from the sides of the machine as shown in (Fig.A).
Storing the Machine
If the machine is to remain inactive for a long time, turn it off
and unplug it. Store it in a dry place and out of the reach of
children. Keep it protected from dust and dirt.
Repairs / Maintenance
In case of failure, problems or a suspected fault resulting from
the falling of the machine, immediately remove the plug from
the socket. Never attempt to operate a faulty machine. Servicing and repairs may only be carried out by Authorised Service
Centres. All liability for damages resulting from work not carried out by professionals is declined.
Fire Safety Precautions
In case of fire, use carbon dioxide (CO2) extinguishers. Do not
use water or dry powder extinguishers.

been properly repositioned in its former seat and then
reposition the lid (2).
Make sure that the tank is fully inserted in the
machine by pressing it gently up to its limit stop
(THE REFERENCE MARK SHOWN IN FIG. 4 SHOULD BE
COMPLETELY VISIBLE). This is to avoid water leaks from
its bottom.
4.4 Machine Connection
Electric power may be very dangerous! It is
therefore necessary to strictly follow the safety
regulations. Do not use faulty power cords. Faulty cords
and plugs must be replaced immediately by Authorised
Service Centres.

6 TIPS FOR CHOOSING COFFEE
As a general rule, any type of coffee available on the market
can be used.
However, coffee is a natural product and its flavour changes
according to its origin and blend; it is therefore a good idea to
try different types of coffee in order to find the most suited to
your personal taste.
For optimal results, we recommend using espresso machine
blends. As a rule, coffee should always come out of the pressurized filter holder, without dripping.
The coffee brewing speed can be modified by slightly changing the amount of coffee in the filter and/or using a different
coffee grind.
GAGGIA recommends using ESE single-dose coffee pods for a
tasty coffee and easier cleaning and preparing.

with frothed milk.
(Fig.25) - Press the steam button (20) again.
Prime the circuit as described in Section 4.5 to make the
machine ready for use.
Never brew coffee when the ( ) button is
pressed or when the 21 indicator light is on, because this means that the steam function is on and the
temperature of the boiler is too high.
Wait for the coffee ready condition to be active (19 indicator light on) before brewing coffee.
Note: The machine is ready when the "machine
ready" indicator light (19) is permanently on.
Important note: If it is not possible to brew a
cappuccino as described, prime the circuit as
explained in Section 4.5 and then repeat the steps.
The same procedure can be performed to heat
other beverages.
•
After this operation, clean the steam wand with a wet
cloth.
10 DESCALING
Limescale normally builds up with the use of the appliance.
The machine needs descaling every 1-2 months (if used) and/
or whenever a reduction in water flow is noticed. Use the GAGGIA descaling solution only.
In case of conflict, priority must be given to
what is indicated in the operation and maintenance manual over the instructions provided on separately sold accessories and materials.
Use the GAGGIA descaling
solution only. Its formula
has been designed to ensure better machine performance and
operation for its whole operating life. If correctly used, it also
avoids alterations in the brewed
product. The descaling solution
is to be disposed of according to
the manufacturer’s instructions
and/or regulations in force in the
country of use.
Never drink the descaling solution or any products dispensed until the cycle has been carried
out to the end. Never use vinegar as a descaling solution.

The indicator light (17) turns on.
Fill up (as described in the “HOT WATER” section of the
manual) 2 cups of water (about 150 ml each) from the
steam / hot water wand and turn off the machine by pressing the ON/OFF button (16); the indicator light (17) turns
off.
6 Let the descaling solution take effect for approx.15-20
minutes with the machine turned off.
