Note: Do not install the machine without reading this manual first. Serious damages can be
caused to the machine if the installation is not done properly!
1- START – INSTALLING THE MACHINE
This '1000espressos' model is a medium range, 2 group professional espresso machine.
Before we plug the machine, we must connect the inlet water and drain pipes and make
sure that the installation of the local (bar, restaurant, etc) is according to law, with enough
power to install a coffee machine and a proper earth connection. This machine is a single
phase, 220/230V and 50 Hz, but it can also be supplied at 110V/60Hz.
So, please check the points described down here before turning on the machine:
Connect the gray drain pipe to permit the machine to drain properly.
Make sure also that the metallic inlet water pipe is well connected.
Install a plug on the main cord, and connect the machine to power (Usually the
machines come with 4 cables on the main cord. Blue –neutral, Yellow/Green –
earth, Brown – 1 phase, Black – 1 phase. You can wire together the Brown and
Black to get only 1 phase).
After the machine is plugged, connected to drain and to water inlet pipe, then we can
proceed to TURN it ON...
...NOW THE MACHINE IS READY TO WORK!
2- FIRST TIME CONNECTION
Please place the main switch to position 2 (indicated on the panel). This will allow
the machine to start filling the boiler keeping the heating element Off.
If the boiler is not full after 120 seconds, touch pads will blink. If this happens,
place the main switch to position 0 and start again.
When the boiler is filled of water, we must place the main switch to position 1,
which will permit the heating element working.
1- Steam and water levers
2- Cups warmer
3- Touchpad with 5/6 blue buttons
4- Electronic level of water
5- Pressure gauges
6- Main switch
7- High groups type E-61
8- Water spigot
9- Steam wand
10- Stand for cups
11- Service tray and drain
12- Adjustable legs
Power: 2.600 / 3.500 Watt
2 /3 groups: 12 /18 Liters
Take some water out of the groups in order to release possible air inside the
system. Also, the electronic level indicator (placed between the 2 touch pads) will
indicate at any time if the boiler has or not the necessary level of water, and the
pump and the solenoid will automatically work each time the boiler needs water.
When the water inside the boiler is hot (it usually takes 15-20 minutes) the Red
Led of the heating element turns Off, and the pressure showed on the gauge is
around 1Bar. Now the pressure-stat runs the machine, so the heating element will
work only when the pressure goes under 1Bar.
Check that the pressure showed on the gauge is Ok. Net pressure should be
around 5 Bar and pump pressure when making coffee around 9Bar.
Pump and boiler pressures can be easily adjusted by touching the wheel of the by-
pass in the pump and the screw on the top of the pressure-stat respectively.
Now the machine is ready to make coffee and give hot water and steam.
Note: If your machine comes with high groups to prepare high cups, use the stand
for cups integrated on the machine to prepare large cups of coffee.
3- PLAYING WITH THE MACHINE
When all seems ready to work, we recommend playing with the machine. It means taking
water from the group by pushing on the touchpad buttons (3), and getting steam and hot
water. Like this, the group and wands will keep hot and ready to make coffee.
It is a good habit to check once on a while the pressure of the machine, and make sure that
everything works properly: safety valve, pump, Leds, steam and water wands, etc.
When finishing, please clean the machine with a wet cloth, and make sure the filter and
filter-holder are properly cleaned. To make sure the group is clean we recommend pouring
some water using the touchpad.
4- PROGRAMMING THE MACHINE
This machine comes only in Automatic version, so use the touchpad to program the quantity
of water for each button of the pad. If you want to modify the coffee volume served for each
dose, please proceed this way:
Press the continuous (*) button and keep it pressed 5 seconds until the Led blinks.
Press the dose button that you want to program, and let the water pouring.
When the volume is what you want the dose to be, press the dose button again
and it will keep automatically programmed.
Repeat step Num 3 to modify the other dose buttons. (We recommend following
this process with the filter holder filled with coffee, to ensure that the final quantity
is what you desire to cup to be).
Left touch pad is the master, so if you program the left side, same quantities will
keep programmed on the right side.
The touch pads of the machine blink if machine can’t fill the boiler within 120 seconds. Also,
the touch pads blink if the brewing is too slow…
…so, MAKE SURE THE ALARM IS QUITE, AND ENJOY YOUR MACHINE!
