Follow the guide below for detailed instructions:
Before use, read the instructions and the labelling on the descaler pack.
You should use De'Longhi descaler only. Using unsuitable descaler and/or performing descaling incorrectly may result in faults not covered by the manufacturer's guarantee.
The descale programme starts and the descaler liquid comes out of the water spout.
The descale programme removes limescale deposits from inside the appliance by automatically performing a series of rinses and pausesuntil the tank is completely empty.
During descaling, to clean the boiler outlet, close the steam dial from time to time to deliver small quantities of descaler from the boiler outlet.
This indicates that the descaling is still underway.
Extract the water tank.
Empty the tank.
Rinse under running water.
Fill up with fresh water up to the MAX level.
Put back in the appliance (If used, insert the water softener filter).
Then press the steam button to start rinsing.
During rinsing, to clean the boiler outlet, close the steam dial from time to time to deliver small quantities of water from the boiler outlet.
The appliance is ready for use.
If the descaling cycle is not completed correctly (e.g. no electricity) we recommend repeating the cycle.
If the water tank has not been filled to the MAX level, at the end of descaling, the appliance requests a further rinse to guarantee that the descaler solution has been completely eliminated from the machine's internal circuits.
Repair of damage to the coffee maker caused by limescale is not covered by the guarantee unless descaling is performed regularly as described above.
