Things you should do before storing your espresso machine

Instructions for Espresso Machine Storage

Single Boiler (LELIT Anna, Anita, Victoria, Kate)

Clear your machine's only boiler:

  • Activate the hot water function to heat boiler up to hot water temperature. Drain all hot water out through the steam wand.

Draining through the brew function is not recommended as the pump is activated and will pump water or air in if the portable water tank has been removed.

Heat Exchanger (LELIT MARAX, MARA)

Clear both compartment of your boiler. 

  1. Heat the machine up to optimal temperature when the steam is hot.
  2. Drain the brew compartment first by pulling up the brew lever and running the water out of the grouphead (area where the portafilter fits) before taking out the portable water tank.
  3. When there is no more water coming out of your grouphead, switch off the machine. Drain all hot water through the hot water wand.

Flip your machine upside down on the table

Flip your machine over and take out the bottom plate covering half the base of your machine, there is a drainage pipe at the bottom of your machine to clear one compartment fully. Skip this step if you are not confident. 

Double Boiler (LELIT Bianca, Elizabeth)

Clear both boilers of your machine.

If unable to flip your machine upside down

Heat the machine up to optimal temperature. Drain the brew boiler first by pulling up the lever to start running the water before taking out the portable water tank. If you take out the portable water tank first, the machine may not allow you to pull the shot.

When there is no more water coming out of your grouphead, switch off the machine. Drain all hot water through the hot water wand to clear your steam boiler.

 

On Machine Startup

Place water into the water tank before turning on your machine which will automatically activate the pump.

If your machine requires you to manually activate your pump, turn on the pump after placing the water tank inside.
