The machine must be descaled.
Do you need descaler? Delonghi's EcoDecalk has been specifically designed with your machine in mind. Using this descaler regularly will prolong the lifespan of your machine and keep it running at optimal performance.
Follow the guide below for detailed instructions:
"Confirm?" is displayed.
“EMPTY DRIP TRAY”, “Add descaler”, “REMOVE FILTER” (only if the filter is present) and “Press OK” alternate on the display.
Also remove the water softener filter, if present.
Hot water containing acid flows out of the spouts. Take care to avoid contact with splashes of this solution.
The message “Descale underway” is displayed and the descaling procedure begins. The descaler liquid comes out of the coffee spouts and hot water spout and a series of rinses and pauses is performed to remove limescale deposits from inside the machine.
After about 25 minutes, the messages “RINSING” and “FILL TANK” alternate on the display.
Do not leave the appliance unattended while hot water is being delivered.
Extract the water tank.
Empty the tank.
Rinse under running water.

Rinsing begins again from the hot water spout only and the message “RINSING Please wait” is displayed.

If the descaling cycle is not completed correctly (e.g. no electricity) we recommend repeating the cycle.
