Philips Saeco Intelia Super-automatic espresso machine HD8753/04 Integrated milk jug & frother Silver
|Cleaning and Maintenance|
The frequency of descaling depends on the water hardness in your area and the amount of water that has passed the circuits. Whether the water is used for brewing coffee, frothing milk or just to flush the system makes no difference. Below you can find the tables with the descaling intervals with and without the Intenza+ filter.
Example of descaling interval:
When you have selected a water hardness of 4 and not inserted an extra water filter, the Calc Clean icon will appear on the display after 30 liters of water have been used (30 Liters is approx. 20 full water tanks).
When you have inserted an Intenza+ water filter into the water tank, the frequency of descaling will be lower. Always make sure that you select water filter “ON” in the menu of the machine if you have inserted the Intenza+ filter.
Caution: Do not use vinegar to descale.
Use the Philips/Saeco decalcifier. You can purchase the SAECO decalcifier separately in the Philips Online shop (http://shop.philips.com/) or at a local dealer.
The complete descaling takes up about 35 minutes. When the machine’s display shows the CALC CLEAN icon, this means that you need to descale. Regular descaling is necessary to ensure a long life for your Saeco machine.
Before you start the descaling cycle, make sure that;
- The drip tray is empty.
- The extra water filter (INTENZA+) is removed from the water tank.
- The milk jug is inserted.
