Caring for the environment

Disposal of the packing material

The transport and protective packing has been selected from materials which are environmentally friendly for disposal and can normally be recycled.

Ensure that any plastic wrappings, bags etc. are disposed of safely and kept out of the reach of babies and young children. Danger of suffocation.

Rather than just throwing these materials away, please ensure that they are recycled.

Disposal of your old appliance or machine

Electrical and electronic appliances / machines often contain materials which, if handled or disposed of incorrectly, could be potentially hazardous to human health and to the environment. They are, however, essential for the correct functioning of your appliance or machine. Please do not therefore dispose of it with your household waste.

Please dispose of it at your local community waste collection / recycling centre and ensure that it presents no danger to children while being stored for disposal.

It should be unplugged or disconnected from the mains electricity supply by a competent person. The plug must be rendered useless and the cable cut off directly behind it to prevent misuse. See the "Warning and

Safety" section of this booklet for further details.

Warning and Safety instructions

This machine complies with all relevant legal safety requirements.

Improper use can, however, present a risk of both personal injury and material damage.

To avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the machine, please read these instructions carefully before installation and before using it for the first time. They contain important notes on the installation, safety, operation and care of the machine.

Keep these instructions in a safe place and pass them on to any future owner.

Correct use

The machine is intended for domestic use only for the preparation of espresso, cappuccino and coffee. Any other usage is not supported by the manufacturer and could be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage resulting from incorrect or improper use or operation.

Technical safety

Before connecting the machine to the mains supply, make sure the rating on the data plate corresponds to the voltage and frequency of the household supply. Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.

The electrical safety of this machine can only be guaranteed when continuity is complete between it and an effective earthing system which complies with current local and national safety regulations. It is most important that this basic safety requirement is present and regularly tested, and where there is any doubt, the household wiring system should be inspected by a qualified electrician.

The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage or injury caused by the lack of or inadequacy of an effective earthing system (e.g. electric shock).

The machine must be built in before operation to ensure that no electrical components are accessible.

Do not connect the machine to the mains electricity supply by an extension lead.

Extension leads do not guarantee the required safety of the machine (e.g.

danger of overheating).

When installed in the mobile unit

(optional extra) the machine is not suitable for use in the open air.

This equipment may only be used in mobile installations such as ships, caravans, aircraft etc. if a risk assessment of the installation has been carried out by a suitably qualified engineer.

8

Warning and Safety instructions

Installation work and repairs may only be carried out by suitably qualified and competent persons in accordance with current local and national safety regulations. Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be dangerous and the manufacturer will not be held liable.

If the coffee machine is to be built in above another appliance, there must be a full-width, closed shelf between them (except when it is combined with a Miele built-in plate warming drawer).

Use

Ensure current is not supplied to the machine until after installation, maintenance or repair work has been carried out.

The machine is only completely isolated from the electricity supply when:

– the mains fuse is withdrawn,

– or the screw-out fuse is removed (in countries where this is applicable),

– it has been switched off at the wall socket and the plug has been withdrawn.

Never open the housing of the machine. Tampering with electrical connections or components and mechanical parts is highly dangerous to the user and can cause operational faults or electric shock.

Caution. Danger of scalding. The spouts and the liquids dispensed are very hot.

Never look directly at the lighting or use optical instruments to look at it.

Caution Laser

(Laserbeam Class 1 M).

The use of the machine by the elderly or infirm or those who have not used the appliance before should be supervised by a competent and responsible person to avoid the risk of injury.

This machine is not a toy! To avoid the risk of injury, keep children well away and do not let them play with it or use the controls. Their skin is very sensitive and reacts to hot temperatures. Danger of scalding.

Remember that coffee and espresso are not suitable drinks for children.

The water piping and the

Cappuccinatore must be rinsed through and the machine cleaned thoroughly before the first drink is prepared.

9

Warning and Safety instructions

Only cold, fresh drinking water should be used to fill the water container. Warm or hot water or other liquids could damage the machine.

Change the water every day to prevent a build up of bacteria.

Do not on any account use mineral water. Mineral water will cause serious limescale deposits to build up in your machine and damage it.

Never put anything other than roasted espresso/coffee beans in the coffee bean container. It must never be filled with ground coffee as this could damage the grinder.

The ground coffee chute must never be filled with anything other than ground coffee or brew unit cleaning tablets. Otherwise the machine will be damaged.

Sugar can damage the coffee machine. Only use pure coffee beans. Do not use coffee beans which have been treated with anything containing caramel, any kind of sugar or any other substances. Do not put drinks containing sugar, or instant coffee in the machine.

Never place a drink with ignited alcohol under the steam spouts.

The flames could ignite plastic components and cause fire damage.

The hot water and steam could cause scalding. Be very careful when using these functions. Make sure you do not come into contact with hot steam or hot water. The machine must never be used for cleaning objects.

Do not use the coffee machine if the Cappucinatore has been dismantled. Danger of scalding by hot steam!

Do not use steam cleaning apparatus to clean the machine.

Pressurised steam could reach the electrical components and cause a short circuit.

Clean the machine every day to prevent a build-up of bacteria. All parts, except the brew unit and the coffee been container, are dishwasher safe.

The machine should be descaled regularly, depending on the hardness of the water, with the descaling tablets supplied. The harder the water, the more often the machine must be descaled. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage arising from insufficient descaling.

Only use the descaling tablets supplied by Miele and follow the instructions on the packet carefully. Use the exact proportions recommended

Otherwise the machine will be damaged.

Depending on the fat content of the coffee used, the brew unit could become blocked. It is important therefore to clean the brew unit with a cleaning tablet after approx. 200 coffees. (A reminder will appear in the display).

Used coffee grounds should be put with the organic rubbish or on the compost heap, but not emptied down the sink, as they could block it.

10

Warning and Safety instructions

Never swing from or hang anything on the front when it is open as this could damage the machine.

In countries where there are areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the machine and its surroundings in a clean condition at all times. Any damage which may be caused by cockroaches or other vermin will not be covered by the guarantee.

Disposal of your old machine

Before throwing an old machine away, switch it off and disconnect it from the power supply. Cut off the cable directly behind the machine, and cut off and render any plug unusable to prevent misuse.

The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage caused by non-compliance with these Warning and Safety instructions.

Brief description

This machine has a container for coffee beans so that they can be freshly ground on demand for every cup to benefit fully from the flavour.

The ground coffee can also be moistened with hot water

( Pre-brewing ), to develop the aroma.

Then hot water is forced at high pressure through the ground coffee.

If the machine is used by various people with different tastes and preferences, you can programme specific settings for up to ten individual users (User profiles) .

You can also add a portion of ready ground coffee should someone prefer a cup of decaffinated coffee, for example.

To prevent water from remaining in the pipes, any water left is expelled, resulting in a little trickle after the coffee has been dispensed. The coffee is then ready.

The used coffee grounds are automatically emptied into the waste container. There is no need to remove the grounds manually after each cup.

The size of cup can be programmed in so that the correct amount is dispensed. If you decide to use a smaller cup than the programmed cup size , preparation can be halted at any time by pressing the control on the right.

If two cups of coffee or espresso are required at the same time, the control on the right must be pressed twice briefly. The machine will fill the cups in two stages with a slight pause in between.

The machine can be programmed to grind from 6 to 14 g of coffee, depending on the type. The programmed-in amount of coffee will be the same for all sizes of cup

(espresso, coffee, large coffee).

The fineness to which the coffee is ground can be adjusted.

The lighting can be switched on independently of operation. The upper and lower lighting can also be dimmed independently of one another.

For safety reasons, the electricity supply to the brewing system and the coffee grinder cuts out when the machine door is opened. The machine also features a system lock to prevent children from operating the machine.

The easy to use programming facility allows, amongst other things, the language in the display to be changed and the water hardness to be programmed in.

To ensure that the flavour can develop fully and be maintained for longer the machine has an additional function to automatically rinse and pre-warm the system when the machine is cold. The same function is used to flush coffee remains out of the system and the spouts after use.

12

The hot water from the hot water spout is ideal for pre-warming the cups .

So that the machine remains ready for use but does not use electricity unnecessarily, it will switch into Energy saving mode after a certain length of time.

You can also programme the machine to switch on and off at a particular time every day.

If you want to use pre-ground coffee, you can add ground coffee to the specially designed coffee chute. To do this:

^

Pull the cover for the coffee chute right out of the machine and open up the lid (1.).

^ Use the scoop supplied and place one level scoop of ground coffee into the coffee chute (2). Close the lid.

^

Push the cover into the machine and close the machine door.

The following will appear in the display:

Make coffee with ground coffee?

No Yes

^

Turn the right hand control until "Yes" is highlighted and then press the control.

^ The display will change to the main menu and you can select the type of drink (see "Making coffee").

If you have not added any ground coffee , you must select "No" . Otherwise the machine will assume that there is ground coffee in the chute and so only water will be dispensed the next time coffee is made!

19

Making coffee

Important: the water piping must be rinsed through every day and the machine cleaned thoroughly before the first drink of coffee is prepared. Rinsing will take place automatically if the Automatic rinsing programme option has been set to "On" and the machine is cold. Hot water will run out of both spouts into the drip tray once the machine has heated up.

If the Automatic rinsing programme option has been set to

"Off", select "Maintenance" to rinse the system (see

"Cleaning and care").

Switching on

To switch the machine on:

^

Press the left hand control.

The following message will appear briefly in the display:

Please fill with fresh water

Descale n Settings F

This is a reminder to fill the water container with fresh water.

The following message will then appear:

Making coffee

Pre-warming cups

The cups should always be pre-warmed to allow the flavour to develop and be retained. The smaller the volume of coffee/espresso, the more important it is to pre-warm the cup.

If you have not got a Miele plate warmer:

^

Place the cup under the hot water spout.

^

Turn the right hand control to "Hot water" and then press the control.

^ Allow a little hot water to run into the cup to warm it. Press the right hand control again to switch off the water.

^

Leave the cup to warm for a while and then pour the water away.

Adjusting the height of the coffee spouts

You can adjust the height of the coffee spouts to suit the height of the cup so that the espresso or coffee will not cool down as quickly as it would if the spouts were further away from the cup. The crema will also be a better quality if the coffee does not have so far to go!

^ Gently pull the coffee spouts downwards (see illustration).

21

Making coffee

Preparing espresso and coffee from freshly ground beans

^ Place a cup under the coffee spouts.

The coffee is always dispensed simultaneously from both spouts.

^ Turn the right hand control to espresso or coffee and then press the control.

The machine will now grind the coffee beans, pre-brew the ground coffee (if the programme option "Pre-brewing" has been set to "On") and the coffee will then be dispensed from the coffee spouts.

Do not open the machine door during the brewing process. This will damage the machine.

To ensure that any coffee residues from the factory testing process are removed from the brewing system, please throw away the first two cups of coffee .

Cancelling preparation

^

To cancel the coffee making process, press the right hand control.

Preparation will be stopped immediately.

You can programme the size of portion dispensed for espresso, coffee and cappuccino according to individual and national tastes (see "Setting the portion sizes").

Cappuccino and milk froth

Using for the first time or after descaling

Before the coffee machine leaves the factory, the pipework is completely pumped out. This also happens during the descaling process. For this reason, water must be pumped into the pipework before using the machine to make a cappuccino or to froth milk for the first time or after descaling:

^ Place an empty cup under the Cappuccinatore spout.

^ Once the machine has stopped, start the "Froth" process again.

After a while steam will come out of the Cappuccinatore spout and there will now be water in the system. You can now prepare a cappuccino or froth milk.

25

Making coffee

Cappuccino

To prepare a cappuccino you will need a large china or porcelain cup and a jug of milk.

Froth is best made from cold, skimmed or semi-skimmed milk (1.5% fat).

Because the milk needs to be frothed, only one portion of Cappuccino can be prepared at one time.

26

When you have sufficient froth in the jug, stop the milk frothing process by pressing the right hand control.

After frothing milk or making cappuccino

Always clean the Cappuccinatore system immediately after use, as it is harder to clean once milk has dried on. Dried on milk can block the

Cappuccinatore system resulting in poor frothing results or even preventing it from working (see "Cleaning and care").

27

Setting the coffee grinder

A good espresso or coffee with a thick, even crema (froth) depends not only on the quality, pressure and temperature of the water and the quality of the coffee beans, but also on the quantity of beans and how finely they are ground.

The crema should have an even colour with dark stripes running through it.

You can set the amount of coffee beans to be ground in the main menu (see "Settings: Customising your machine -

"Amount of coffee").

Always adjust the amount of beans to be ground one stage at a time only and then let the machine grind this quantity before adjusting the amount again. Otherwise the machine will be damaged.

There are various ways to tell whether the coffee grinder is set correctly:

– If espresso or coffee flows too quickly into the cup, it means that the coffee has been ground too coarsely and the pressure is not sufficient. The grinder should be set on a finer setting.

– If espresso or coffee only trickles into the cup, the coffee has been ground too finely and the coffee will be bitter. The grinder should be set on a coarser setting.

– If the crema is evenly coloured but pale, this is also a sign that the coffee beans have been ground too coarsely.

– If the crema is very dark brown on one side, graduating almost to white on the other, it suggests that coffee beans have been ground too finely.

28

Setting the coffee grinder

To alter the grinder setting

^ push the slide control to the left (for finer grinding) or to the right (for coarser grinding).

You should be able to feel the notches when moving the slide control.

If the slide refuses to move,

^ close the machine and dispense a cup of espresso coffee.

Then try the slide control again.

Amount of coffee

Both the flavour and the crema (froth) on the coffee depend on the quantity of ground coffee used.

6 to 14 grammes of coffee beans are used per cup, depending on the type of coffee. The greater the quantity, the stronger the espresso, coffee or cappuccino.

The quality of the crema is also affected by the quantity:

– If the crema is evenly coloured but pale, it could mean that too little coffee is being used.

– If the crema is very dark brown on one side, graduating almost to white on the other, it could mean that too much coffee is being used.

Setting the water hardness

For trouble-free operation of the coffee machine, and to ensure that the descaling reminder appears in the display at the appropriate time, it is important to set the water hardness level. The water hardness level indicates how much calcium is dissolved in the water. The higher the calcium content, the harder the water, and the harder the water, the more often the machine will need to be descaled.

The machine measures the amount of water which has been taken in (including the amount required for producing steam).

The amount of water which the machine can use before it needs to be descaled will depend on the water hardness level set. Less water will be used in hard water areas than in soft water areas.

Your local water authority will be able to tell you the hardness of water in your area. Alternatively, you can measure the hardness yourself using the enclosed test strip:

45

Settings: Customising your machine

^ Dip the strip in your drinking water for approximately a second, then shake off any excess water. The result will be evident after about a minute.

If the water is harder than 40 °d / 7.0 mmol/l, limescale will build up more rapidy than with soft water. Descaling will need to be carried out more regularly than stated to prevent limescale damage to the machine.

The machine has four programmable levels:

Setting the portion sizes

The flavour of the coffee produced depends on the type of coffee, the amount of coffee used, how finely the beans are ground and particularly, the quantity of water used. Not all cups are the same size. To ensure the machine uses the right amount of water to suit your taste and your cups, you can programme in the amount to be used.

Espresso a quantity of water of between approx. 30 up to

125 ml can be set,

Coffee a quantity of water of between approx. 30 up to

250 ml can be set,

Hot water a quantity of between approx. 30 up to 250 ml can be set,

Cappuccino - cappuccino uses (milk) froth and espresso.

The time for frothing milk can be individually controlled. The quantity of water for espresso can be set between approx. 30 up to 125 ml.

Setting the portion sizes

If you do not stop the flow of water whilst setting the amount, the flow will stop automatically when it has reached the maximum amount possible . This amount is then memorised for the drink.

53

Cleaning and care

Rinsing

Always allow the machine to cool down before cleaning.

Danger of scalding.

Do not clean the machine with a steam cleaner as this will damage the machine.

Never use cleaners containing chlorides, acids, soda or scouring agents. These would damage the surface.

It is important to clean the machine regularly, as the used coffee grounds will soon go mouldy.

With the exception of the brew unit and the coffee bean container , all removable parts can be cleaned in a dishwasher. If the parts are cleaned frequently in a dishwasher, they can become discoloured from regular contact with food residues (e.g. tomatoes) in the dishwasher.

If you have set the automatic rinsing function to off because you do not want the machine to rinse the brewing system automatically, you will need to rinse the system through manually. This needs to be done before making the first drink of the day and also after making the last drink of the day.

54

Cleaning and care

Water container

Empty the water container daily and fill with fresh, cold drinking water just before use.

When cleaning, make sure that there is no soiling in the area around the valve. Otherwise the container will not sit correctly and this could result in water leaking from the machine.

^

Clean the surface the water container sits on thoroughly.

Waste container

After a certain period of time a reminder to empty the waste container will appear in the display. The waste container must be cleaned when this message appears. However it is better to clean the waste container every day to prevent coffee grounds from turning mouldy.

There will probably also be water in the waste container left over from the rinsing process.

Lining the waste unit with one or two pieces of kitchen paper towel will make it easier to tip the grounds out.

^ Pull the waste container forwards to remove it.

^

Clean the waste container with hot water and a little washing-up liquid or in the dishwasher and dry with a cloth.

55

Cleaning and care

^ Also clean the now accessible area in the machine where the waste container sits, thoroughly.

^ Push the waste container fully back into the machine.

Drip tray

There is a sensor in the drip tray which causes a message to appear in the display when the drip tray is full and needs to be emptied. Remove the tray and empty and clean it when this message appears.

However, to avoid a build-up of odours, the drip tray should be cleaned every day .

After running the last rinse you should leave the drip tray in position for a while before cleaning it so that you catch any remaining from the system.

^ Open the machine door and carefully remove the drip tray from the machine.

There is a grid in the drip tray. This grid prevents the water from spilling out of the drip tray when it is being carried.

^ Clean the drip tray and the grid with hot water and a little washing-up liquid, or in the dishwasher and dry with a cloth.

Make sure that the metal contact discs at the top of the drip tray are cleaned and dried properly. These metal discs send a signal to the machine when the drip tray is full or if it is not in the machine. The discs will not convey these messages if they are dirty or damp.

56

^

Push the drip tray with the grid along the right hand edge back into the machine.

^ Close the machine door.

Grille with drip tray cover

Cleaning and care

Make absolutely sure that none of the small holes in the parts are blocked (see arrow). You can knead the soft parts to unblock them. This is important for trouble-free operation of the machine.

^

Reassemble the parts as shown. Make sure that the lugs

(see arrow) are underneath and

^ that all the guide points line up.

64

^ Place the Cappuccinatore in the machine from below a and turn the cover above the spout in the direction of the arrow b .

Cleaning and care

Do not use the machine without the Cappuccinatore in place. Steam would escape, uncontrolled, from the machine. Danger of scalding and the machine would be damaged.

Machine front

^

Clean the front of the machine with a solution of hot water and washing-up liquid applied with a damp cloth. Wipe everything dry with a soft cloth.

Make sure that no water penetrates behind the displays or the controls.

E-Cloth

A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available from the Miele UK Spare

Parts Department, which is suitable for cleaning surfaces such as stainless steel, glass, plastic and chrome without the use of chemicals.

Avoid the following on all types of front:

– cleaning agents containing soda, acids or chlorides,

– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. powder cleaners and cream cleaners.

– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers, or sponges which have been previously used with abrasive cleaning agents.

When descaling the machine, wipe up any spillages of descaling agent immediately!

To prevent the risk of scratches and damage to the surface structure of stainless steel and aluminium fronted machines, pay particular attention to the following cleaning instructions.

Stainless steel fronts

The machine front and controls are susceptible to scratches and abrasion.

65

Cleaning and care

Please observe the different cleaning instructions for

- stainless steel surfaces and

- stainless steel coloured controls

Stainless steel surfaces

Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned using a Miele E-Cloth or with a proprietary non-abrasive cleaning agent designed specifically for use on stainless steel. N.B. Do not use stainless steel cleaning agents on the controls.

To help prevent re-soiling, a proprietary conditioning agent for stainless steel, such as

Neoblank (available from the Miele UK Spare

Parts Department) can also be used. Follow the manufacturer's instructions, and apply sparingly with an even pressure in the direction of the "grain".

Stainless steel coloured controls

The controls may suffer discolouration or damage if soiling is left on them for too long. Remove any soiling straight away. (Do not use stainless steel cleaning agents).

Aluminium fronts

Aluminium is affected by the way that light falls on it, by the surrounding environment and by the angle you observe it from.

Aluminium surfaces and controls may suffer discolouration or damage if soiling is left on for too long. Remove any soiling straight away.

The surfaces and controls are susceptible to scratches and abrasion.

Avoid:

– stainless steel cleaning agents,

– cleaning agents containing descaling agents,

– dishwasher cleaner.

66

Descaling the machine

The machine should be descaled regularly to ensure that it functions correctly. It will remind you when this needs to be carried out.

When only 50 portions can be made before the next descaling programme has to be run, the following message will appear in the display for the first time: " 50 drinks can be made before descaling has to be carried out!

".

This message will now appear (counting down) after each drink (coffee, espresso, cappuccino, hot water, steam) is dispensed. If you let it run to 0, the machine will stop working and the following will appear in the display:

You should only use the descaling tablets supplied with the machine. These have been specially formulated for use in this coffee machine and are available from your

Miele dealer or the Miele Spare Parts Department.

Other types of descaling agents will damage the machine and affect the taste.

Follow the instructions on the package carefully to avoid damaging the machine.

You must use the funnels provided with the machine.

Otherwise there is a risk of descaling agent splashing the front of the machine. When descaling the machine, wipe up any spillages or splashes of descaling agent immediately to avoid damage to the machine front.

After running the descaling programme, remember to clean the water container and the drip tray thoroughly to remove any descaling residues.

^ Turn the right hand control until "Descale" is highlighted and then press the control.

The display will guide you through the whole procedure.

Please follow the instructions to, for example, empty the drip tray, fill the water container etc.

If the machine has already heated up, it will cool down for approx. 10 minutes before starting to run the descaling programme.

The descaling programme cannot be cancelled once the right hand control has been pressed. The programme has to be completed through to the end. This is a safety measure to ensure that the machine is fully descaled, and is important to protect the machine and ensure it functions correctly.

^ When the message appears in the display asking you

– to add descaling agent to the water container , take the water container out and fill it up to the k mark with cold water. ( Do not use less water than this because this would cause the descaling programme to finish before it has been completed properly).

68

Descaling the machine

Add 2 descaling tablets to the water. Allow the tablets to dissolve fully before shutting the lid and putting the water container back in the machine.

^

Fit the descaling funnels under the spouts as illustrated.

The bottom of the funnel fits into the drip tray to enable the descaling agent to be collected in it.

During the descaling programme, water containing descaling agent will run out of the hot water and the cappuccinatore spouts. This is followed by an activation period before a little more descaling agent is dispensed.

^ When a message asking you to fill the water container with fresh water appears, you should remove the container and rinse it out thoroughly with clean water. Make sure all traces of descaling agent are removed, and then fill it up to the k mark with clean drinking water.

Water will flow out of the spouts during the rinsing process.

The drip tray will need to be emptied several times during this process.

When descaling has been completed, Programme finished will appear in the display. Follow the instructions in the display. The machine will then run a short rinsing cycle.

The pipework is completely pumped out during the descaling process. For this reason, water must be pumped back into the pipework before using the machine to make a cappuccino or to froth milk after descaling. (See

"Making coffee: Cappuccino and milk froth").

. . . the machine does not light up after it has been switched on.

^

Is the machine locked?

^ Has the lighting been switched off (see "Settings,

Lighting").

^

If not, then the lighting is defective. Call the Miele Service

Department.

. . . the heating-up phase takes too long.

If the door is opened during the heating-up phase, e.g. to fill the water container, the heating elements switch off. They will start heating up again as soon as the door is closed.

. . . nothing appears in the display.

The machine is not connected to the electricity supply.

^ Is the master switch in the 0 position?

^ Is it plugged in and switched on at the socket?

^

Department.

70

Problem solving guide

. . . the machine suddenly switches itself off.

The machine will switch itself off automatically after a certain length of time if it is not being used. This time depends on the switch off time which has been programmed .

The water temperature could be too high . The machine will remain switched off until the water has cooled down sufficiently.

There could be stones in amongst the coffee beans. If this is the case, the machine will switch itself off automatically within

20 seconds to avoid damage.

- Call the Miele Service Dept.

^ Is the plug correctly fitted in the socket?

. . . the lighting suddenly switches itself off.

The lighting will switch off automatically after 10 minutes of inactivity if another lighting setting has not been selected.

. . . you cannot read the display.

If the machine is installed too low down, the display can be hard to see.

^

Try and improve this by adjusting the display contrast or brightness.

. . . no water or steam comes out of the cappuccinatore spout.

^ Remove the water container and replace it.

The spout is blocked if still no water or steam comes out or if only a little comes out.

^ Clean the cappuccinatore as described in "Cleaning and care - Cappuccinatore". Make absolutely sure that none of the small holes in the parts are blocked. You can knead the soft parts to unblock them.

71

. . . the coffee grinder makes a louder noise than usual.

There could be stones in amongst the coffee beans.

^ Switch the machine off immediately.

^

Contact the Miele Service Department.

. . . the coffee grinder makes less noise than usual.

The coffee bean container is empty. A message will soon appear in the display.

^

Wait until the grinder makes no noise at all, then refill the bean container with beans.

. . . the espresso is dispensed too quickly.

The coffee is too coarsely ground.

^

Set the grinder on a finer setting.

. . . the espresso is dispensed too slowly.

The coffee is too finely ground.

^ Set the grinder on a coarser setting.

. . . the espresso is not hot enough.

^

Have the cups and system been pre-warmed?

The smaller the cup, the more important it is to pre-warm it.

^ Check the temperatures the different types of coffee have been set to.

^

Check whether the brew unit is blocked. Clean it if it is blocked.

. . . coffee is not dispensed, even though the beans have been ground and there is sufficient water in the water container.

^ Check whether the slide control for the fineness of the coffee is at the finest setting or if the amount of coffee to be ground has been set at the largest amount.

Because the process is time controlled, it is possible that the process has taken so long that there is no time left for brewing.

72

Problem solving guide

^ Select a slightly coarser coffee grinder setting or a lower setting for the amount of coffee to be ground.

. . . the machine door will not close.

^

Are the containers in position correctly?

. . . the steam system is switched off but steam is still available.

If the steam system is still hot, steam will still be available.

However, if you select steam once the steam system has cooled down after being switched off, it will need to heat up again before steam is available.

. . . coffee preparation has been interrupted.

The water container is empty.

. . . only water is dispensed when coffee has been selected.

– The lid of the ground coffee chute has been opened and closed and then the "Make coffee with ground coffee"

(instead of coffee beans) setting has been selected.

However, the coffee chute has not been filled with ground coffee.

After the drink has been dispensed, the coffee machine will revert automatically to making coffee with coffee beans.

– The beans may have become jammed. Pull the bean container out of the machine and then push it back in again.

. . . a message keeps appearing asking you to empty the drip tray even though it is empty.

^ Have the contacts been properly cleaned and dried?

. . . too much crema has formed and is overflowing above the coffee spouts.

Some types of coffee will produce too much crema if the coffee or espresso temperature is set to maximum and the amount of coffee to be ground is set too high.

^

Set a lower temperature and reduce the amount of coffee to be ground.

. . . the milk froth is "spitting".

Perhaps the system was not filled with water before the first drink was made. Fill the system with water as described in

"Making coffee: Cappuccino and milk froth - Using for the first time or after descaling").

. . . milk spits out of the jug when making the first froth of the day.

If the door was opened during the heating-up phase, pressure will have built up in the steam valve. When the valve was opened, this pressure caused the milk to come out of the spout too fast.

. . . the slide control for the grinder setting will not move.
