The formation of limescale is a natural consequence of using the machine. Descaling allows to optimise cleaning and removing scale deposits from the inside.
If the descaling cycle is interrupted due to a power failure or because the machine is switched off by mistake, the entire operation must be repeated before the machine can be used.
WARRANT Y LIMITATIONS
WARNING: If the descaling is not performed the limescale can cause malfunctions not covered by the warranty.
Use the descaling product supplied with the machine to descale for the first time. Do not use vinegar, lye, salt or formic acid because they may damage the machine.
Use only descaling agents suitable for coffee machines.
The descaling solution must be disposed of in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations. Do not drink the liquid dispensed during the descaling process; the machine can be used to make coffee when the descaling process is finished.
The warranty does not cover damage or malfunctions caused by:
- Failure to carry out periodic descaling.
- Operation with a voltage that differs from the rating shown on the data plate “M” (see “machine parts”).
- Improper use or use that is not compliant with the instructions.
- Internal modifications.
The warranty does not cover repair costs on machines that have been tampered with by unauthorized service centres. In this case all costs are paid by the client. We suggest:
- not to wash the machine parts in the dishwasher;
- to keep the recovery trays clean.
Failure to observe these instructions may cause damage to the machine which is not covered by the warranty.
It is advisable to keep the original packaging (at least for the duration of the warranty period) in order to ship the machine to a service center for repair if necessary. Any damage caused by transport without adequate packaging will not be covered by the warranty.
