INTRODUCTION AND GENERAL NOTES
Thoroughly read the instructions contained in this booklet because it gives important information regarding safety for installation, use
and maintenance.
Keep this booklet in a safe and accessible place for further consultation.
This machine must be used only for the purpose it was designed:
dispensing coffee, cappuccino, pouring hot water.
Any other use is to be considered inappropriate and therefore dangerous.
The manufacturer declines all responsibility for damage caused by any improper, incorrect and unreasonable use of the machine.
The use of any electric appliance implies the observance of some fundamental rules.
More specifically:
 The appliance should be placed on a stable flat surface with the bodywork at a minimum distance of 20mm from the back wall,
furthermore, it must be installed taking into account that the highest shelf must sit at a height that is at least 1.5 mt.
During installation, fit a device that guarantees disconnection from the mains, duly sized according to the power of the equipment
(see rating plate), as well as protection against leakage current with a value equal to 30mA.This cut-off device must be assembled
on the power supply line in compliance with installation rules.
 do not touch the appliance with your hands or feet wet or damp
 do not use the appliance with bare feet
 do not pull the power cord to disconnect the plug from the power socket
 dot not leave the appliance exposed to the weather (rain, sun, frost)
 do not let children or untrained persons use the appliance.
Before carrying out any cleaning and maintenance, disconnect the appliance from the power supply, pulling the plug from the power
socket and turning off the main switch.
In case of failure or malfunction turn the machine off and do not attempt to carry out any repairs or direct operations on the machine.
All repairs must be carried out in an authorized service centre, using original spare parts only.
Failure to comply with the above recommendations will compromise the safety of the machine and the warranty conditions.
If this machine is no longer used we recommend that it is made inoperative by disconnecting the cable from the power supply, and all
potentially dangerous parts are made harmless, especially to protect children who might use the machine for their games.
INSTALLATION NOTES
Installation must be carried out according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
An incorrect installation can cause damage to persons, animals or things; the manufacturer declines all responsibility for such situation.
Place the machine on a table having minimum height of 0,95mt. Furthermore the surface has to be flat, having a maximum inclination
of 5°, in order to secure a perfect stability. Check also that the table can bear the weight of the machine.
This is a commercial machine and is not designed for home use and must be operated by duly qualified persons.
The machine must not be used by children or people with reduced mobility, sensory, mental or lack of experience or education, unless
there is a supervisor.
After unpacking check that the machine is not damaged.
If in doubt, do not use the machine and contact an Carimali S.p.A. Authorized Service Centre.
All packing materials (plastic wrapping, polystyrene, nails, etc.) are potentially dangerous and must be kept out of children’s reach and
disposed of in a safe manner for the environment.
Before connecting the machine to the power supply make sure that the rating information of the machine correspond to that of the
power supply, and that the power supply is adequate to additional power absorption of the machine.
The machine is supplied with power cord and without plug, connect the machine to the main switch with knife switch and protection
fuses. In case of maintenance, open the knife switch.
The machine with single phase voltage, having a rated current more than 16A, must be connected to power supply with a
dedicated
impedance.
The electrical safety of this machine can be guaranteed only if correctly connected to an efficient earth circuit as indicated by current
electrical safety regulations.
It is necessary to check this fundamental safety prerequisite, and in case of doubt, ask a professionally qualified technician to check the
circuit.
The manufacturer declines all responsibility for any damage caused by failure to earth the equipment.
In order to avoid any dangerous overheating, we recommend that the power cord be fully unwound.
In case of damage to the cord, contact exclusively an authorized service centre to have it replaced.
The power cord of this machine must not be replaced by the customer.
Do not leave the machine connected unnecessarily.
Turn off the main switch of the machine when not in use.
Do not cover the ventilation openings of the machine.

Place the machine at an adequate distance from walls, objects, etc.
The machine must be connected to a system with a water pressure which is not greater than 0.6 MPa. Do not use pipes and coupling
gaskets already used for previous installations.
If the pressure is greater, a pressure reducer must be installed.
The machine must be connected to a softener.
ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS TO USE THE MACHINE
Environmental temperature:
5 – 30 °C (empty the hydraulic system in case of freezing)
Maximum humidity:
80% relative humidity
Water hardness:
5° eh, 7° dH, 13° Fh
1. Essential operational requirements
1.1 The machine shall be supplied with water for human consumption, in compliance with the laws in force where the installation is
performed. The installer shall check with the owner or manager of the machine if the water complies with the requirements above.
1.2 The components and materials to be used during the installation are those supplied with the machine. In case other components
are needed, the installer shall check if they are suitable to be used in contact with water for human consumption.
1.3 The installer shall set up hydraulic connections in compliance with the rules about hygiene, water safety and environment in force
where the installation is performed.
1.4 At the end of the installation the machine is activated, brought to nominal operating conditions and left in the “ready for
operation” mode.
Then it is turned off and the whole water circuit is drained from the initial water to eliminate any impurities.
Then the machine is once again loaded and brought to nominal operating conditions.
When the machine is in the “ready for operation” mode, the following deliveries are performed:
- 2 liters from the hot water outlet (in case there are more outlets, the 2 liters shall be equally divided)
- 1 liter of water from each coffee outlet
- each steam outlet is kept open for 1 minute
At the end of the installation, it is recommended to write a report of the operations that were performed.
USE AND MAINTENANCE NOTES
For a correct functioning of the machine it is fundamental to comply with the manufacturer’s instructions, having qualified personnel
to carry out special maintenance and to check all safety devices.
Do not use the machine without water.
Avoid to expose hands or other parts of the body to the coffee dispensing spouts or to the steam or hot water nozzles.
The water and steam from the nozzles is very hot and can cause severe burns.
The water and steam nozzles and the filter holders are very hot and therefore must be handled with care, holding them in the
appropriate points.
Do not leave the machine in rooms where the temperature is below 0°C or 32°F without having first drained the boiler and the
hydraulic circuit.
Cups and coffee cups must be placed on the cup-warmer tray (if fitted) only after having been fully drained.
Only the crockery related to the machine should be placed on the cup-warmer tray.
Placing any other object on the tray is to be considered incorrect.
The machine is not waterproof and therefore should not be cleaned with water jet.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A CORRECT PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
The aim of this schedule is to prevent as far as possible equipment from breaking down, through the periodical
check-up and replacement of components subject to fair wear and tear, thus reducing service calls and
relevant cost in working hours.
This schedule is based on the suppliers recommendations along with previous service history on equipment
currently out in the field.
It is designed to assist in extending the operational life of the equipment.
A. Pre delivery inspection:
We suggest to carry out a Pre Delivery Inspection on all machines before deliver them to final customer. PDI
can detect inconveniences which may occur during transportation or a long storage. For instance:
- screws and nuts which fit the body-work may become loose;
- flowmeter may be block by dust especially after long storage;
- screws which fit the power supply wires may become loose.
B. 2 or 3 weeks after installation:
Parts to be checked or adjusted:
1. the grinder/s settings
2. the dose settings
3. if daily cleaning of group and milk frother is carried out by the operator.
C. At 4 months’ intervals:
Parts to be changed:
1. o-rings for milk frother
2. milk silicone tube for milk frother
3. o-rings for group pistons.
4. Internal Mixer gasket
Parts to be cleaned or replaced (check and decide on site):
5. o-rings for the drip tray
6. group upper piston micro screen
7. group lower piston screen
8. milk frother
9. clean the hopper by the oil of the coffee
10. clean the coffee chute by means of a dry brush
Parts to be checked or adjusted:
11. grinder/s setting (coarseness of the coffee powder)
12. air adjustment for milk frother
13. coffee silicone tube
14. pump pressure should be 8-9 bars for rotation pump and 11 bars for vibration pump, check after had
closed the coffee flow valve on upper piston or use the dedicated tool, code no. A 0128
15. coffee boiler expansion valve should leak at 13 bars after a few coffee deliveries
16. front door switch
17. grounds beans tray induction switch
18. check the gasket underneath the sweeper (it is glued to the sweeper)
LB.05105.01.EN
Pag.62
05/10/2016
Check the functioning of the machine with the customer:
19. dose settings (setting of milk frother, steam boiler pressure…)
20. that the double coffee spout delivers consistent quantity of coffee in the cup, if not replace it
21. check how many times the group cleaning procedure has been carried out
22. check how many times the milk frother cleaning procedure has been carried out.
D. Check at 12 months’ intervals
Same as points C1-22, plus replace the following:
1. steam boiler safety valve
2. coffee boiler expansion valve
3. replace flat burrs grinder after having grounded approximately 300-500 Kg of coffee
For grinder with conical burrs, check and/or replace the complete grinder after 50000 cycles
4. if the group has delivered 75.000 cycles replace the motors
5. group upper piston micro screen
6. group lower piston screen
7. milk frother
8. milk frother air adjustment.
Suggestions:
Use the Test Actuators menu to check all loads of the machine: grinder/s, solenoid valves, contactor and
heating element.
Check Alarm History menu, if you find any alarm check and solve the problem.
Test Actuators and Alarm History menu are part of the System Manager menu.
PLEASE NOTE: It is very important to verify that your customers carry out recommended daily cleaning
procedures of brewing unit and milk frother. More parts may be checked depending on your personal
experience and also coffee/water quality.
