Certain models are fitted with a water softener filter. If this is not the case with your model,
you are recommended to purchase one, from De’Longhi Customer Services. To use the filter correctly, follow the instructions below: “Installing the filter” Remove the filter from the packaging. Turn the date indicator disk
until the next two months of use are displayed. The filter lasts about two months if the appliance is used normally. If the coffee machine is left unused with the filter installed, it will last a maximum of three weeks. To activate the filter, run tap water through the hole in the filter, until water comes out of the openings at the side for more than a minute. Extract the tank from the appliance and fill with water. Insert the filter in the water tank and immerse it completely, sloping it to enable the air bubbles to escape. Insert the filter in the filter housing
and press as far as it will go. Put the tank back in the machine. When you install the filter, you must notify
the appliance of its presence. Press the MENU icon to enter the menu. Press the icon relative to one of the scrolling arrows until “Install filter” is displayed. Press the OK icon; “Enable?” is displayed. Press the OK icon to confirm the selection. “HOT WATER Press OK” is displayed. Position a container under the hot water spout (min. Capacity: 500ml). Press the OK icon to confirm the selection. The appliance begins hot water delivery
and the message “Please wait” is displayed. After the flow of hot water stops, the appliance automatically resets to “Ready for coffee” status. The filter is now active and you can use the coffee machine.
