This appliance is for HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY. It may be plugged into an AC electrical outlet (ordinary household current). Do not use
any other electrical outlet.
DO NOT OPERATE APPLIANCE IF THE LINE CORD SHOWS ANY DAMAGE, OR IF APPLIANCE WORKS INTERMITTENTLY OR
STOPS WORKING ENTIRELY.
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer
detachable power-supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. If a longer detachable
power-supply cord or extension cord is used,
1. The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, and
2. The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped
over unintentionally.
POLARIZED PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into
a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug and try again. If it still does not fit, contact a
qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
LINE CORD SAFETY TIPS
1. Never pull or yank on cord or the appliance.
2. To insert plug, grasp it firmly and guide it into outlet.
3. To disconnect appliance, grasp plug and remove it from outlet.
4. Before each use, inspect the line cord for cuts and/or abrasion marks. If any are found, this indicates that the appliance should be
serviced and the line cord replaced.
5. Never wrap the cord tightly around the appliance, as this could place undo stress on the cord where it enters the appliance and
cause it to fray and break.

Make sure the Brewer is turned Off.
Fill the Water Tank with undiluted white vinegar or if using a descaling product fill according to the instructions on the package of the
descaling product.
Place a large mug on the Drip Tray and beneath the Brew Spout.
Make sure there is not a coffee capsule in the Capsule Holder.
Push the Capsule Drawer properly in place.
Close the Capsule Puncturing Mechanism and start a brew cycle without a coffee capsule.
Power off the Brewer just after it begins to dispense and then allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes.
After allowing to sit, run another brew cycle without adding a coffee capsule. Empty the dispensed liquid that has accumulated in
the mug. Use extreme caution as contents may be hot.
Fill the Water Tank with 8 ounces of distilled or bottled water and run a full brew cycle.
Run three additional brew cycles using distilled or bottled water, each time without a coffee capsule. This will clean the Brewer and
get rid of any residual taste from the vinegar or descaler.
The Brewer is now ready for regular use again.
TO STORE:
• Be sure all parts are clean and dry before storing. Store appliance in its box or in a clean, dry place. Never store it while it is hot or
wet. Never wrap cord tightly around the appliance; keep it loosely coiled.
