    • The upper piston is held in place by four clips, two on each side. To remove it, place a screwdriver lengthwise across both clips on one side, and depress them while pushing down on the top of piston. That should loosen one side, then do the same for the other and the piston assembly should come loose.

    • The top piston only fits right in one position, so look at the pictures ! In the white circle, you see the connecting for the valve. That part has to face towards the top.

    • On the second picture you see the notches, Both have to glide in the Piston holder.

    • On the third picture you see the clips. All 4 of them have to snap in correctly. No problem.

    • Be sure to check the correct position of the two small arrows on the turning part of the brewgroup. The arrows must exactly face to each other.

    • The gearbox will get destroyed if the brewgroup is pushed with force into the holder in the machine. Never use force, it must glide freely and easy into the holder inside the machine!

    • The first coffee should get poured in the drain because the first coffee will contain traces of the degreasant.

    • The next cup of coffee will be an aesthetic pleasure of aromes, flavor and well formed Crèma. Enjoy.
