Russell Hobbs product_98 Product User Manual
Read these instructions before use and keep them safe. If you pass the coffee maker on,
pass on the instructions too.
Remove all packaging, but keep it till you’re satisfied that the coffee maker is working.
important safeguards
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 The coffee maker must only be used by or under the supervision of a responsible
2 Don’t put the coffee maker in water or any other liquid, don’t used it in a
bathroom or near a bathtub, basin or any other source of water, and don’t
use it outdoors.
3 Don’t touch hot surfaces e.g. carafe, hotplate. Use the handle.
4 Position the coffee maker on a firm, level, heat-resistant surface, close to a power
socket and out of reach of children.
5 Take care when pouring – don’t over-tilt the carafe.
6 Coffee will remain hot for some considerable time after the machine is switched off.
This can present a scald hazard – keep the coffee maker, the carafe and the cable
away from the edge of worktops and out of reach of children.
7 This appliance must not be operated by an external timer or remote control system.
8 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be tripped over or caught
9 Unplug the coffee maker when not in use, before moving and before cleaning. Let it
cool down fully before cleaning and storing away.
10 Don’t fill the reservoir past the max mark, excess water will escape via a hole in the
rear of the coffee maker.
11 Put the carafe on the hotplate before switching the coffee maker on.
12 If you need to stop the coffee maker, press and release the [ button till the light
goes out.
13 Before adding water or reusing the coffee maker, let it cool down for 10 minutes.
14 Don’t use the coffee maker for any purpose other than those described in these
15 Keep the coffee maker and cable away from hotplates, hobs, burners, or any other
source of heat.
16 Don’t twist or kink the cable, and don’t wrap it round the coffee maker.
17 Don’t put the carafe in a microwave oven.
18 Don’t use accessories or attachments unless we provide them.
19 Don’t use the coffee maker if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
20 If the cable is damaged, return the coffee maker, in order to avoid hazard.
household use only
before using for the first time
Fill the water reservoir to the max mark with water and operate the coffee maker
without using coffee. When the heating cycle has finished and all the water has passed
into the carafe, switch the coffee maker off and unplug it. Discard the hot water and
clean the coffee maker (see “care and maintenance”). This should remove any
manufacturing dust, etc.
1 Check that the light is out. If not, press and release the [ button till it goes out.
2 If it’s just been used, let the coffee maker cool down for at least 10 minutes.
3 Lift the lid and fill the reservoir with a jug.
4 Fill the reservoir with at least 2 cups, but don’t fill it above the max mark on the side
of the coffee maker.
5 Even if you only want one cup of coffee, you’ll need to put more than one cup of
water into the coffee maker, to allow for evaporation, and the water absorbed by the
coffee grounds.
6 Put ground coffee into the filter. The amount will vary according to individual taste,
but we suggest starting with one level tablespoonful (one scoop) of filter-ground
coffee per cup of water.
7 Close the lid.
8 Put the carafe on the hotplate.
brew strength
9 If you want a lighter brew, turn the brew strength control (on top of the lid) anticlockwise.
10 It works by diverting some of the water past the coffee grounds.
power up
11 Plug the coffee maker into the power socket (switch the socket on, if it’s switchable).
12 The display will light up, AM will flash.
coffee now
13 To make coffee right away:
a) if you’ve just plugged the coffee maker in, press the h button, to stop the flashing
– it doesn’t matter what time it shows, as you’re not going to use the timer
b) press and release the [ button till the light glows steadily – once if you’ve just
plugged in, twice if you’ve used the timer function since the coffee maker was
last plugged in
c) when the light glows steadily, the coffee maker will start brewing
d) hot coffee will drip from the filter into the carafe
coffee later
14 If you want to use the timer to make coffee later:
set the time now:
a) press and release the h and min buttons to set the display to the correct time –
keep the buttons pressed to “fast forward” the display
b) AM or PM will show at the bottom of the display – check you’ve got the right one
set the brewing time:
c) press and release the T button – the light will flash
d) press and release the h and min buttons to set the display to the time you want
the coffee to be ready – keep the buttons pressed to “fast forward” the display
e) AM or PM will show at the bottom of the display – check you’ve got the right one
f) press and release the [ button – the light will glow, the display will revert to the
correct time, then the light will flash, and keep flashing till it starts brewing.
g) at the time you set, the light will glow steadily, and it’ll start brewing
leave it alone
h) leave it alone till the preset time comes round, and it makes your coffee – don’t
fiddle with it, you might upset it
next time
i) next time you use the coffee maker, remember that the timer has already been
set – it’ll remember the time set till you unplug it, or set it again
15 To pour, remove the carafe from the hotplate, and pour from the spout.
16 Replace the carafe on the hotplate to keep your coffee warm.
a quick cup
17 If you want a quick cup of coffee before the brewing cycle has finished:
a) remove the carafe, pour, then replace the carafe on the hotplate
b) as you remove the carafe, the non-drip valve will close, to stop coffee dripping on
to the hotplate.
c) to prevent the filter holder overflowing, replace the carafe within 30 seconds –
this may not sound much, but you’ll find it’s more than enough time to pour a
couple of cups of coffee
d) when you replace the carafe, it’ll push up the non-drip valve, and coffee will flow
into the carafe
auto shut-off
18 The hotplate will stay on for about two hours after the coffee has brewed, to keep
your coffee hot, then it’ll switch off the element and the light.
19 After about an hour, chemical changes in the coffee liquor will start to make it bitter,
we suggest you pour it away and make a fresh brew.
20 Let the coffee maker and the carafe cool down fully before cleaning or for about 10
minutes before refilling.
21 Don’t leave coffee in the carafe for more than about an hour, and don’t reheat it
otherwise it’ll become bitter.
22 Don’t try to reheat coffee by passing it through the coffee maker. The reboiled
coffee won’t taste very nice, and you’ll damage the coffee maker.
23 Grease or sediment on coffee making equipment can impair the taste. Make sure
the filter, filter holder, and carafe are clean before use; clean them thoroughly after
each use.
24 Fill with freshly drawn cold water. Let the tap run for a few moments first, especially
first thing in the morning.
For best results use medium-ground filter coffee. The amount will vary with the type of
coffee and your individual taste. We suggest starting with two rounded teaspoons of
medium-ground coffee per cup.
Our view is that personal taste should rule, not convention. What we do say is that if
you like milk in your coffee, use warm or hot milk, to avoid overcooling the coffee. To
extract maximum flavour from the coffee, it should be cool enough not to scald or
burn the mouth, but hot enough to let the flavour fill the mouth, sinuses and nose, not
just the taste buds.
bottled water
If you use bottled water, make sure it has no added ingredients, flavourings, etc., and
use “still” water, not “sparkling”. The carbon dioxide which gives the “sparkle” will
adversely affect the flavour of your coffee.
care and maintenance
1 Unplug the coffee maker (switch the socket off first, if it’s switchable).
2 Leave it to cool down fully.
3 Wipe the outside of the coffee maker, the underside of the lid, and the inside of the
filter housing with a clean damp cloth.
4 You can wash the carafe, filter, and filter holder in warm soapy water. Rinse
thoroughly afterwards, to remove all trace of soap, then dry.
5 To replace the filter and filter holder, align the slot in the filter with the covered slot
in the filter holder, drop the filter into the filter holder, then drop the filter holder
into the coffee maker, with the slots to the right – that’s your right, as you face the
front of the coffee maker.).
Don’t put any part of the coffee maker in a dishwasher.
Don’t put the coffee maker in water or any other liquid.
Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaners or solvents.
Scale build-up will cause the element to overheat, reducing its working life. It may
cause the safety cut-out to operate prematurely, switching the coffee maker off before
the water boils. It will also lengthen the brewing time.
To minimise scale build-up, empty the reservoir after each use, don’t leave water to
stand in the coffee maker overnight, and descale the coffee maker regularly. Use a
proprietary brand of descaler suitable for use in plastic-bodied products. Follow the
instructions on the packet of descaler.
When descaling has finished, empty the carafe and operate the coffee maker twice
more with fresh water only. Discard the water, to ensure no chemical residues are left.
In areas of very hard water descaling may be necessary as often as once a month, and it
may be necessary to use filtered or descaled water instead of ordinary tap water.
, Faults directly related to scale build-up aren’t covered under the guarantee. They’ll
be subject to a repair charge
The product must be earthed. It has a 13A BS1362 fuse in a 13A BS1363
plug. To replace the plug, fit the green/yellow wire to E or E, the blue
wire to N, and the brown wire to L. Fit the cord grip.
If in doubt, call an electrician.
Don’t use a non-rewireable/moulded plug unless the fuse cover is in
place. If you remove the plug, dispose of it.
If you ring Customer Service, please have the Model No. to hand, as we won’t be able
to help you without it. It’s on the rating plate (usually underneath the product).
The product isn’t user-serviceable. If it’s not working, read the instructions, check the
plug fuse and main fuse/circuit breaker. If it’s still not working, consult your retailer. If
that doesn’t solve the problem:
Pack carefully, with a note of your name, address, day phone number, and what’s
wrong. If under guarantee, say where and when purchased, and include proof of
