AquaClean water filter

Your machine is AquaClean enabled. You can place the AquaClean water filter in the water tank to preserve the taste of your coffee. It also diminishes the need for descaling by reducing limescale build-up in your machine. You can purchase an AquaClean water filter from your local or online retailer or authorized service centers.

AquaClean filter status indication

When the AquaClean is active, the status of the AquaClean filter is always visible on the screen as a percentage.
- If the status of the AquaClean filter is 10% or less, the screen shows a message for 2 seconds each time you switch on the machine. This message advises you to buy a new filter.
- If the status of the filter is 0%, the machine asks you to replace the AquaClean filter every time you switch on the machine.

Activating the AquaClean water filter (5 min.)

user manual The machine does not automatically detect that a filter has been placed in the water tank. Therefore you need to activate each new AquaClean water filter that you install in the 'Clean' menu.
When the machine stops showing the filter activation message, you can still activate an AquaClean water filter, but you will need to descale the machine first.
user manual Your machine has to be completely limescale-free before you start using the AquaClean water filter.
Before activating the AquaClean water filter, it has to be prepared by soaking it in water as described below. If you don't do this, air might be drawn into the machine instead of water, which makes a lot of noise and prevents the machine from being able to brew coffee.
1 Tap the 'Clean' user manual icon and use the up and down arrows to select 'AquaClean'.
2 Tap the OK icon to confirm.
3 Tap the OK icon again when the activation screen appears. Follow the instructions on the screen.

Replacing the AquaClean water filter (5 min.)

After 95 liters of water have flowed through the filter, the filter will cease to work. The AquaClean status indicator drops to 0% to remind you to replace the filter. As long as the AquaClean status indicator is shown on the display, you can replace the filter without having to descale the machine first. If you do not replace the AquaClean water filter in time, the AquaClean indicator goes out after some time. In that case you can still replace the filter but you first need to descale the machine.
When the AquaClean status indicator drops to 0% or when the machine reminds you to replace the AquaClean filter:
1 take out the old AquaClean water filter.
2 install a new filter and activate it as described in chapter 'Activating the AquaClean water filter (5 min.)'.
user manual Replace the AquaClean water filter at least every 3 months, even if the machine does not yet indicate that replacement is required.
