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.

2. Please note:

1.
Use descaler recommended by De’Longhi only. Failure to descale the appliance as described above also invalidates the guarantee.

If the descaling cycle is not completed correctly (e.g. no electricity) it is recommended to repeat the cycle.

3.
After descaling, it is normal for the grounds container to contain water.
