How-to guide

1. Before descaling

Please note:

  • Before use, read the instructions and the labelling on the descaler pack.

  • It is important to use De’Longhi descaler only. Using unsuitable descaler and/or performing descaling incorrectly may result in faults not covered by the manufacturer’s guarantee.

  • Descaler could damage delicate surfaces. If the product is accidentally spilt, dry immediately.

2. If present, remove the water softener device

Then pour the descaler into the tank up to the level A marked inside the tank.

Level A is equal to one 100 ml packet.

3. Add water (1 liter) up to the level B

Then put the water tank back in the appliance.

4. Turn the mode selector dial to the descaling option

The OK light turns to orange and the descaling light flashes.

5. Position a recipient under the coffee outlet, hot water spout and steam wand

Make sure the portafilter is not attached.

6. Keep the OK button pressed for at least 3 seconds

The OK light begins to flash and the descaling starts.

Please note:
In case you start the descaling cycle by mistake, you can press the OK button for 10 seconds; the rinsing cycle can not be stopped (from step 9).

7. The descale programme starts and the descaler liquid comes out of the steam wand and coffee outlet

The descale programme removes limescale deposits from inside the appliance by automatically performing a series of rinses and pauses until the tank is empty.
