CARE AND CLEANING
Enter the emptying mode by turning
the brew button to the left most
position and holding it for 6 seconds
until the light starts to blink.
Press the brew button.
Calcium deposits ("scale") from water will build up in the Espresso Machine over time
and may impair espresso quality. Scale should be removed every month; local hard-water
conditions may require more frequent descalings. Use the Nespresso brand packaged
descaling agent available online to remove scale. Follow the directions on the package.
KitchenAid does not recommend using home remedies or water and vinegar solutions
to descale the Espresso Machine.
Add two descaling agent packets to the
tank per package directions then fill the
water tank with water to the "max" fill
line. Replace tank on espresso machine.
Then rotate the selection dial until
the blinking light is above the middle
right position and press the brew
button. The emptying cycle will run
until the tank is empty.
NOTE: Once Espresso Machine has
emptied, allow it to cool down for
10 minutes before using.
Place an empty container (at least
1.5L) under the coffee outlet.
