Regular descaling prolongs the life of the appliance and guarantees optimal brewing results for a long time.
For normal use (two brewing cycles a day), descale the appliance:
• Every two months if you use soft water (up to 18 dH) or filtered water;
• Every month if you use hard water (over 18 dH).
To descale your appliance, we advise you to use white vinegar (up to max 8% acetic acid), as other
products may damage your coffeemaker.
To descale the appliance, please follow the steps below:
|1. Set the AromaSelect knob to the CALC position|
|2. Fill the water tank with white vinegar|
|3. Put a paper filter in the filter holder to collect the scale|
|4. Press and hold the on/off switch until the word 'CALC' appears on the display. |
The appliance operates for 5 minutes and then switches off for 10 minutes to let the descaling solution act.
The appliance switches back on and operates for another 10 minutes to complete the brewing cycle.
|5. Let the appliance cool down for 3 minutes and remove the paper filter.|
|6. Repeat steps 2-5 once more. Reuse the vinegar in the jug to fill the water tank again.|
|7. Fill the water tank with fresh cold water.|
|8. Switch on the appliance and let it brew until the water tank is empty.|
|9. Switch off the appliance and let it cool down for 3 minutes.|
| 10. Repeat steps 7 – 10 |
note:Repeat step 10 until the water in the jug no longer tastes or smells like vinegar.
