Question about DeLonghi BAR 6
The scale contained in the water, over time, will
cause plugging up of some elements in the appliance
and will thereby compromise its correct functioning.
The result will be that more time is
required to make coffee. The formation of scale
depends on the hardness of the water and on how

system that counts the number of cups of coffee
that have been made. The ON DRIP pilot light will
begin to blink when it is time to carry out descaling.
