Cleaning the water tank
- Clean the water tank regularly (about once a month) and whenever you replace the water softener filter (C6, *if pro- vided) with a damp cloth and a little mild washing up liquid;
- Remove the filter (*if present) and rinse with running water;
- Put the filter (*if provided) back in the appliance, fill the tank with fresh water and replace the tank;
- (Models with water softener filter only) Deliver about 100 ml of water.
While cleaning, never immerse the coffee maker in water. It is an electrical appliance.
Why are the lights flashing on my coffee machine?
The most common cause of a flashing light is excessive scale deposits in the machine. If your home has hard water, scaling is even more likely the cause of a flashing light.
