Ensure that there are no foreign bodies among the coffee beans. Otherwise the guarantee will be void.

If it is necessary to repair the appliance or to replace the mains lead, send the appliance either to the specialist dealer you bought it from (specialist tools must be used for repairs), or to one of the AEG customer service centres.

Electrical appliances may only be repaired by trained technicians.

Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause serious injury to the user.



No responsibility can be accepted for any damage if the appliance is used incorrectly or for the wrong purposes.

; This appliance complies with the following EU Directives:

• 73/23/EEC dated 19.02.1973 “Low Voltage Directive”, including Directive

Amendment 93/68/EEC

• 89/336/EEC dated 03.05.1989 “EMC

Directive”, including Directive Amendment 92/31/EEC

Cable compartment (Figure 3)

Your coffee machine has a cable compartment. If the mains lead is too long, you can push cable that is not needed into the compartment on the rear of the appliance.

Prior to using for the first time

Prior to preparing coffee for the first time, you should perform one or two brews with water only.

Fill the fresh water container up to the top cup marking with cold water, and with the appliance switched on, allow the water to flow through into the coffee jug without using ground coffee or filter paper. To do this, press the On/

Off button .


1 Inserting the carbon filter

Remove the carbon filter from the plastic packaging and rinse it thoroughly under running water.

Open the lid of the water tank

(Figure 1/A).

Remove the container (Figure 4).

Insert the carbon filter in the filter holder (Figure 5).

Insert the filter holder in the container so that the marking arrows on the filter holder and the container are positioned opposite one another. Turn the filter holder clockwise (Figure 6).

Close the lid of the water tank.

The tap water will be filtered during the brewing procedure. Please note that the carbon filter must be changed either after 60 brewing procedures or after 2 months

(whichever is the sooner) so as to maintain the effectiveness of the filter. The old carbon filter cannot be cleaned, and must be replaced with a new one .

Filter control

The unit has an automatic filter control.

Switch the appliance on using the On/

Off button . The green indicator next to the button (Figure 2/K) is illuminated. After 60 brewing procedures, or at the latest after 2 months, the green indicator will start to flash.

It is then time to change the carbon filter. Afterwards, press button

(Figure 2/K) for longer than 3 seconds.

The indicator will be illuminated as usual.

3 Briefly press button if you want to use the appliance without a carbon filter. The green indicator will go out.

2 Filling with water (Figure 7)

Raise the lid of the fresh water tank

(Figure 1/A). Fill the container with clear, cold tap water. You will find cup markings on the coffee jug for measuring out the required quantity.

The markings apply to the quantity of fresh water. As the ground coffee absorbs water, the amount of coffee produced will be less.

Never use hot water.

Nor should you fill the fresh water container with milk, prepared coffee, tea etc.


3 Inserting filter paper (Figure 8)

Place size 4 filter paper in the filter insert. Please first fold back the side and lower edge of the paper filter.

So as not to lose any aroma while grinding and brewing the coffee your coffee machine has an aroma lid. Make sure that it is always positioned correctly: the aroma lid has a semicircular rib on its underside that needs to be fitted into the matching recess on the filter holder. The opening with the sealing lip is positioned on the left.

Close the lid of the fresh water container again.

4 Place the coffee jug with lid on the warming plate (Figure 9)

5 Coffee grinder

5.1 Place coffee beans in the bean container (Figure 10)

The coffee grinder has a bean container (Figure 1/L), which keeps the beans constantly aroma fresh. Fill the container to the top and fasten firmly with the lid.

The bean container holds approximately 125 g of coffee beans.

5.2 Grinding texture adjustment

(Figure 11)

You can change the size of coffee ground to suit the strength of roast using the adjusting ring (Figure 1/K).

Setting 1 = ● is for lightly roasted beans, and setting 4 =

for dark roast beans. We recommend beginning with a medium setting which is suitable for the types of coffee that are usually commercially available. g

9 Removing the jug (Figure 15)

When the jug is removed, the anti-drip valve prevents dripping.

10 Cleaning

(It is imperative that these instructions are observed!)

10.1 Coffee grinder

(Figures 14, 17-19)

From time to time (at the latest when a blockage occurs), it is necessary to clean the grinder channel to free it from oily coffee residues.

To do this, proceed as follows: Remove the plug from the mains.

Open the lid of the fresh water container and turn the screw (e.g., with a coin) on the cover of the grinder channel to “Open” (Figure 17). Take hold of the cover of the grinder channel at the g front left and remove it slowly

(Figure 18). Insert a paper filter in the swivel filter and move the swivel filter until it clicks into the grinding position. Brush the coffee residue (including that from the rear of the channel) into the paper filter using a suitable item (e.g., paintbrush) (Figure 19). The coffee residue can also be removed using a vacuum cleaner.

Then wipe the grinding channel with a dry cloth. Press the release button to move the swivel filter back into the brewing position (Figure 14). Empty the paper filter, replace the cover and turn the screw back to the “Close” position. Check that the cover is correctly positioned. Your coffee machine is now fully ready for use again.

If dark, oily coffee beans are used, the grinding channel needs to be cleaned more often than for light beans.

To avoid blockages in the grinding channel:

• Do not use frozen coffee beans, as water condenses on them on defrosting and can lead to blockages.

• Do not swivel the swivel filter back to the grinding position immediately after brewing as steam rising from the coffee grounds can cause a blockage.

• Position the appliance sufficiently far away from the cooker or a deep fat fryer as fat can cause a blockage.

• Always keep the container for the coffee beans closed.

Every now and again clean the coffee grinder (Figure 1/L ) of oily residues from the coffee beans using a dry cloth.

10.2 Coffee part (Figure 16/A and B)

The filter insert can be removed for emptying and cleaning.

Remove the glass jug and raise the lid of the fresh water container

(Figure 1/A), place your finger in the rear handle recess (Figure 16/A) and pull the bracket up. This unlocks the filter insert and it can be removed for


g cleaning. Activate the anti-drip valve several times during cleaning. To insert, press the filter bracket vertically upwards and into the rear handle recess by its lug. Reposition the bracket for the fresh water container

(Figure 16/B).

The filter insert is now relocked. Please check that it is positioned correctly!

The glass jug can now be returned to the warming plate.

Only clean the appliance using a damp cloth; never immerse it in water . Only the coffee jug and jug lid are dishwasher safe.


• In th event of a short-term power failure, any data entered will be stored for approximately 5 seconds.

• If the swivel filter is moved to the grinding position by mistake, swivel it back to the right using the release button (Figure 14).

What to do, if ...

Descaling - to prolong the life of your coffee machine

• the swivel filter does not swivel properly to the brewing position?

– Ensure that the filter insert is correctly positioned (Item 10.2)!

– Check that the aroma lid is also positioned correctly!

• the coffee runs into the jug too slowly?

– Clean the anti-drip valve (Item10.2)!

– Descale the appliance (see instructions on descaling).

As a precaution we recommend descaling every three months. If you are using a gold filter, remove it from the filter insert before descaling. Use only an environmentally friendly descaling agent and always follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Do not use any concentrated descaler based on formic acid. Nor should you use a powdered descaling agent.

First fill the fresh water container with water and then add the descaling agent. Never vice versa.

Place the coffee jug with lid on the warming plate. Allow the descaling solution to work for approximately 15 minutes, then switch on the appliance.

Once the descaling solution has percolated through, switch the appliance off. If necessary, repeat the descaling procedure. Then repeat the procedure at least twice using clear water.

Rinse the coffee jug, jug lid and filter insert thoroughly under running water.

Activate the anti-drip valve several times as it is rinsed.
