  • What is descaling, why and how often do I need to do it?

    Limescale formation is a normal occurrence when using your coffee machine and will result in reduced water flow or cold coffee. For this reason you will need to descale the machine approximately every three months.

    To complete the descaling process, use a non-toxic and/or non-harmful type of descaling product for coffee machines, commonly available on the market.

    Do not drink the descaling solution or the liquids that have run through the machine.

    Never use vinegar as a descaling agent.

  • How can I descale?

    - Remove and empty the water tank.

    - Fill the tank with a solution of descaling agent and water, as specified on the packaging of the descaling product. Reinsert the tank.

    - Turn on the machine and place a container under the spout.

    - Press the on/brew switch and allow 2 cups of water (approx. 150 ml/5 fl. oz. each) to run through.

    - Allow the descaling agent to work for 15–20 minutes.

    - Repeat the process until the water tank is completely empty.

    - Remove the tank and rinse it with fresh drinking water. Fill it completely.

    - Press the on/brew switch to turn on the machine. Place a suitable container under the spout. Press the on/brew switch and allow all the liquid in the tank to run through.

    - Once the water is finished, refill the tank and repeat the process described in the previous step. The descaling process will be completed at the end of the cycle.
