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
much the coffee maker has been used. To achieve
the best performance, descaling must be carried
out every so often. The coffee maker has a built-in
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.
To do so, proceed as follows:
• remove the anti-chlorine filter (if present) and the
permanent filter from the coffee maker (so as not

• Rinse by allowing the coffee maker to operate

simultaneously to reset the counter to zero.
IMPORTANT: if the machine is left unconnected to
the electrical mains for over two months, before
using it again it is necessary to carry out the
process of scale removal as described in the preceding

Make sure your filter is clean before you replace any gasket.

Unlike the other person offering a solution I have experienced this problem like you when making the first cup. I found that sending a blank shot of water through first does the trick before putting the coffee grounds on. Hope this helps.
