How do I vent my Xsmall?


To prevent air and water from remaining in the system too long, the machine must be vented before first use and after a long period of disuse. 
Venting is also necessary after you insert or exchange a filter, as air may enter the system during these operations handling.  

Vent the system:

  • If the warning light is flashing quickly and you are not descaling the machine.   
  • You can vent the system at any time by simply dispensing some hot water. When you dispense hot water, the whole circuit is filled/flushed and pressurized.
