Steps to Cleaning your Kenco Singles machine:
CLEANING THE CUP STATION – EMPTY AND CLEAN FREQUENCY = DAILY DEPENDING ON VOLUME
Remove the Cup Stand and Drip tray from your Kenco singles machine, and wash in warm, soapy water before replacing. Ensure it is correctly located.
CAPSULE BIN – EMPTY AND CLEAN FREQUENCY = DAILY DEPENDING ON VOLUME
The capsule bin holds thirty Kenco singles capsules, and should be emptied and cleaned daily. If the bin becomes full the machines display will read (CHECK BIN!)
The capsule bin is full. Open the front door from the left hand side (there is a magnetic latch) remove the capsule bin by sliding out towards you, and dispose of the used Kenco singles capsules.
If ‘Check bin’ message persists, switch off the machine and check underneath the brew mechanism to ensure a capsule is not still trapped. Remove the offending capsule, close the front door, switch on the machine and it will reset automatically.
NOTE: The automatic warning feature will not normally work on the optional base cabinet with the bin inside the cabinet; this must be checked daily.
CLEANING THE CLAMP ASSEMBLY – REMOVE AND CLEAN FREQUENCY = ONCE A WEEK DEPENDING ON VOLUME
Warning: ALWAYS DISCONNECT THE MACHINE FROM THE MAIN ELECTRICITY SUPPLY BEFORE CARRYING OUT THIS OPERATION.
For weekly cleaning, or in the unlikely event of a capsule jamming, switch off the machine, open the door and remove the capsule bin, and lower the clamp assembly as follows:
Place your thumb on the front cover of the brew mechanism and your forefinger behind the plastic latch. Unclip the latch by closing your thumb and forefinger. Gently lower the clamp plate assembly.
CAUTION! When the clamp plate assembly is lowered, or removed, sharp cutting teeth are exposed – handle with care!
With the clamp assembly lowered, if you are clearing a jammed capsule, you will now see whether a capsule is jammed inside. Carefully remove any jammed capsules with your fingers – do not use sharp instruments or tools in the mechanism!
To release the clamp plate assembly, firmly grasp the sides taking care not to touch the cutting edges. Swing the clamp plate towards you to an angle of approximately 45 then lift and slide it towards you keeping it at the same angle.
It can be separated into two by pinching (step 1) the sides on the clamp plate assembly, this will separate the assembly (step 2)
