• Unplug the appliance and turn off the main switch when
not in use. Do not leave the appliance switched on unnecessarily.
• As with all electrical appliances, use the coffee maker with
care and common sense, particularly in the presence of
children.
• Check that the voltage of the mains power supply corresponds to the value indicated on the appliance rating
plate. Connect the appliance to an efficiently earthed
electrical socket with a minimum rating of 10A only. The
manufacturer declines all liability for any accidents caused
by the absence of an efficient earth system.
• If the power socket does not match the plug on the appliance, have the socket replaced with a suitable type by
a qualified electrician.
• When filling the water tank or removing the jug from the
machine, avoid spilling liquid on the plug or power cable.

The quantities given in the table are indicative and should be
adapted to your personal taste and the type of coffee. Never exceed the maximum quantity of 10 measures. The type of blend
has a considerable influence on the coffee you make. You should
therefore try various types of coffee to find the one best suited
to your taste.
• Models with glass jug (A): close the door at the front of
the appliance and place the closed jug on the plate (fig.
6).
• Models with thermal jug (B): before placing the jug on
the plate, make sure the lid is closed (fig. 7).
• Models with electronic controls: press the ON/AUTO/
button (fig. 8). The red light indicates that the coffee
maker is operating and “BREW” appears on the display. The appliance emits a beep when delivery begins, then
three beeps when it ends. The taste of the coffee can be
optimised by pressing the AROMA button (Q). This function
enables a process of percolation which releases the water
in the filter more slowly. Filtering a little at a time improves the flavour and aroma of the coffee. To enable the
function, press the aroma button (the light on the button
comes on). To disable the function, press the button again. You are recommended to use the AROMA button when you
do not want to make a full jug of coffee.
• Models with switch: Press the button (J) (fig. 9). The light on the switch indicates that the coffee maker is
operating. Coffee delivery will start after a few seconds.
It is completely normal for the appliance to give off steam
while the coffee is percolating. The coffee maker emits a
beep when delivery begins, then three beeps when it ends.

Setting the clock (certain models only)
Plug the appliance into the mains socket. The first time it comes
on, “0:00” appears on the display. To set the exact time, press
and hold the SET CLOCK button (R) (fig. 1) until the current time
is displayed, then release. The time can be set at any moment. How to make drip coffee
Please note: the first time the appliance is used, all accessories and the internal circuits must be washed through by
making at least two jugs of coffee without using pre-ground
coffee.
• Open the door at the front by pulling the handle (E) and
use the jug to pour clean cold water into the water fill
compartment (F) (fig. 2) up to the level indicated for the
number of cups of coffee you want to make. Check the level
of water in the tank through the level window (D) (fig. 3).
You are recommended to use the jug provided as a measure as the maximum capacity of the jug and the tank are the
same.
• Position the permanent filter (H) (if present) in the filter

Cleaning and maintenance
The taste of the coffee can be optimised by pressing the
AROMA button (Q). This function enables a process of percolation which releases the water in the filter more slowly.
Filtering a little at a time improves the flavour and aroma
of the coffee. To enable the function, press the aroma
button (the light on the button comes on). To disable the
function, press the button again. You are recommended to
use the AROMA button when you do not want to make a
full jug of coffee.
In models with glass jug: if you leave the button (J)
pressed after percolation has finished, the plate will keep
the coffee at the ideal temperature. The appliance goes
off automatically 40 minutes after coffee delivery ends. To
turn the plate off press the button (J) button again.
For a new brewing cycle switch off the appliance pressing
on/off button and restart .
Models with thermal jug: to pour the coffee, turn the lid
to the position shown in fig. 10. To remove the lid completely, turn the lid to the position shown in fig. 11. After percolation has ended, the appliance goes off automatically. For a new brewing cycle switch off the appliance pressing
button (J) button and restart .
Before maintenance or cleaning of the appliance, turn off, unplug from the mains socket and allow to cool.
• Do not use solvents or abrasive detergents to clean the coffee maker. Just wipe with a soft damp cloth. • Never immerse the coffee maker in water. It is an electrical
appliance.
• The water tank filter (S) can be reached through the inspection door (T). Clean when necessary.
Descaling
If the water in your area is hard, limescale builds up over time. These deposits may affect correct operation of the appliance.
You are recommended to descale the coffee maker every 60
coffee making cycles. Models with electronic controls only: When green light
flashes on the aroma button (Q), (about every 60 cycles) you
have to descale the appliance. To reset the descaling alarm press
the two buttons aroma and set clock at the same time. The green light will be power off.
To descale, always use special commercially available descaling
products for drip coffee makers.
1. Dilute the product in the jug, following the instructions on
the descaler pack;
2. Pour the solution into the water fill compartment;
3. Place the jug on the warming plate;
4. Press the ON/AUTO/ button (O) / button (J), percolate
the equivalent of one cup then turn the appliance off;
5. Leave the solution to work for 15 minutes, then repeat
operations 4 and 5.
6. Turn the appliance on and deliver the water until the tank
is completely empty.
7. Rinse by operating the appliance with water only at least 3
times (3 complete tanks of water).
Failure to clean as described above invalidates the guarantee.
Please note: removing the jug before all the coffee requested has been delivered does not interrupt coffee making,
but merely blocks flow into the jug. If you want to pour out a
little coffee immediately, you should do so as rapidly as possible
in order to avoid the coffee overflowing.
Programming auto-start
(models with electronic
controls only)
Check that the time is set correctly.
To programme when you want the appliance to make coffee:
• Press the SET TIMER button (P) and hold it down until the
time you want the coffee maker to come on is reached.
• Release the SET TIMER button. The time flashes briefly until
the setting has been memorised, then the current time is
displayed.
Activating the timer function

•
Set the time you want the appliance to come on and go off
as described in the above paragraph;
Prepare the appliance to make coffee. Press the ON/AUTO/
button (O) (fig. 12) rapidly twice. The light becomes red
to indicate that the appliance is operating and “AUTO” is
displayed. 6

Electrical connection (UK only)
A) If your appliance comes fitted with a plug, it will incorporate a 13 Amp fuse. If it does not fit your socket, the plug should be cut
off from the mains lead, and an appropriate plug fitted, as below.
WARNING: Very carefully dispose of the cut off plug after removing the fuse: do not insert in a 13 Amp socket elsewhere in the house
as this could cause a shock hazard. With alternative plugs not incorporating a fuse, the circuit must be protected by a 15 Amp fuse.
If the plug is a moulded-on type, the fuse cover must be re-fitted when changing the fuse using a 13 Amp Asta approved fuse to
BS 1362. In the event of losing the fuse cover, the plug must NOT be used until a replacement fuse cover can be obtained from your
nearest electrical dealer. The colour of the correct replacement fuse cover is that as marked on the base of the plug.
B) If your appliance is not fitted with a plug, please follow the instructins provided below:
