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:
Descaler contains acids which may irritate the skin and eyes. It is vital to respect the manufacturer’s safety warnings given on the descaler pack and the warnings relating to the procedure to follow in the event of contact with the skin and eyes.
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.
