DESCALING THE MACHINE
Limescale normally builds up with the use of the appliance. Descaling should be performed every 1-2
months, or when indicated by the machine.
Please use Saeco descaling solution in your machine. It has been specifi cally developed to
preserve performance and functionality throughout the lifetime of the machine and to ensure, with regular
use, a high quality delivered product.
Warning! Never use vinegar as a descaling solution.
(Fig. 17) - Before descaling, remove the Pannarello (if present) from the hot water/steam wand as described in
the "Cleaning and Maintenance" section. Turn the machine on by pressing the ON/OFF button (16). Wait for the machine to complete the warm
up and rinse cycles. Mix the descaling solution with water as specifi ed on the package of the descaling product and fi ll the water
tank. (Fig.7) - Place a container under the hot water/steam wand (10). (Fig.9) - Dispense one cup of water at a time to completely empty the water tank by turning the
control dial (17) clockwise to the "water" position. To stop dispensing, turn the control dial (17) counter-clockwise to set it back to the "bean" position. Between each interval, allow the descaling solution to take effect for about 10-15 minutes and press the
ON/OFF button (16) to turn the machine off. Empty the container. Repeat this operation until the water tank is empty. Rinse the water tank and fi ll it with fresh water.
