before making coffee for the first time

1 Put all buttons in the 'up' (off) position.
2 Pull out the tank.

produces better coffee and prevents limescale. To fit it, remove the tank lid.
Change the water filter cartridge every 200-250 uses or every year.
4 Pour cold water into the tank up to MAX. Refit the tank.
5 Close the hot water/steam knob (don't overtighten)
