PAgeBrevilleheadrecommendsr..... safety first

At Breville we are very safety conscious. We design and manufacture consumer products with the safety of you, our valued customer, foremost in mind. In addition we ask that you exercise a degree of care when using any electrical appliance and adhere to the following precautions.

Important safeguards

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:

FOR ALL ELECTRICAL

APPLIANCES

Carefully read all instructions before operating and save for future reference.

Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs as advised in this instruction book.

To protect against fire, electric shock and injury to persons do not immerse the power cord, plug, or appliance itself in water or other liquids.

Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.

If the appliance is to be:

-left unattended

-cleaned

-moved

-assembled; or

-stored

Always switch off the appliance by pressing the POWER button to off and unplug from the power outlet.

Always allow the appliance to cool before cleaning, moving or storing.

It is recommended to regularly inspect the appliance and power cord. Do not use the appliance if there is damage to the

power cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any way.

Immediately stop use and call Breville Consumer Support.

The use of accessory attachments not recommended by Breville may result in fire, electric shock or injury to persons.

Do not let the power cord hang over the edge of a table or counter-top,or touch hot surfaces.

Do not place the appliance near the edge of a table or counter-top.Ensure the surface is level, clean and free of water and other substances.

Do not place the appliance on or near a hot gas or electric burner. Do not place it in, or allow it to come in contact with a heated oven.

PAgeBrevilleheadrecommendsr..... safety first

This appliance is recommended for household use only. Do not use this appliance for anything other than its intended use. Do not use outdoors. Do not use in moving vehicles or boats.

SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS FOR BES920XL

It is recommended to plug the espresso machine into a properly grounded and dedicated circuit, separate from other electrical appliances.

Use only cold water in the water tank. Do not use any other liquids. Do not use highly filtered, demineralized or distilled water as this may affect the taste of the coffee and how the espresso machine operates.

Ensure the portafilter is firmly inserted and secured into the group head before starting an extraction. Never remove the portafilter during the extraction process.

Caution must be used during descaling as hot steam may be released. Before descaling, turn off the machine, allow to cool for at least 1 hour and ensure the drip tray is empty and fully inserted. For instructions, refer to ‘Descale (dESc)’, page 35.

Do not attempt to open or service the espresso machine.

For any maintenance other than cleaning, call Breville Consumer Support or visit a Breville Authorized Servicer.

short cord instructions

Your Breville appliance is fitted with a short power cord to reduce personal injury or property damage resulting from pulling, tripping

or becoming entangled with a longer cord. Longer detachable power cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised. If an extension cord is

used, (1) the marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance,

(2) the cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter-topor table where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally and (3) the extension cord must include a3-pronggrounding plug.

BREVILLE ASSIST™ PLUG

Your Breville appliance comes with a unique Assist™ Plug, conveniently designed with a finger hole to ease removal from the power outlet.

CSA Duty Cycle Marking:

The Canadian Standards Authority requires any appliances capable of drawing over 1500W to be marked with a ‘duty cycle’ in minutes. For the BES920XL, this ‘duty cycle’ represents the maximum time for which the appliance will draw over 1500W during any 2 hour period of use. It does not indicate the appliance is unsafe for continuous use or is required to be switched off at certain intervals during normal use.

BEFORE FIRST USE

Machine Preparation

Remove and discard all labels and packaging materials attached to your espresso machine. Ensure you have removed all parts and accessories before discarding the packaging.

Remove the water tank located at the back of the machine by pulling down the water tank handle. Remove the plastic bag containing the water filter and water filter holder. Clean parts and accessories (water tank, portafilter, filter baskets, jug) using warm water and a gentle dish washing liquid. Rinse well then dry thoroughly.

TIP

To easily maneuver your machine, use the drop down swivel foot located under the drip tray. When turned to UNLOCK, the swivel foot drops down & lifts the machine upwards, making it easier to access the removable water tank or reposition the machine to another location.

INSTALLING THE WATER FILTER

Remove the water filter and water filter holder from the plastic bag.

Soak the filter in a cup of water for 5 minutes then rinse under cold running water.

Wash the filter holder with cold water, taking specific care to rinse the stainless steel mesh.

Insert the filter into the two parts of the filter holder.

Place filter into filter holder

To install the assembled filter holder into the water tank, align the base of the filter holder with the adapter inside the water tank. Push down to lock into place.

Fill the water tank with cold water before sliding back into position at the back of the machine and locking into place.

NOTE

DO NOT use highly filtered, demineralized or distilled water in this machine. This may affect the taste of the coffee and how the machine operates.

NOTE

To purchase water filters, visit www.breville.com or call Breville Consumer Support.

Rinse filter & mesh

PAgeOperatingheaderyour..... Breville PRODUCT

FIRST USE

1.Ensure tank is filled with cold water. You can do this by either opening the top-fillwater tank lid (push to open), or by removing the water tank at the back of the machine.

2.Check STEAM LEVER and HOT WATER dial are in the CLOSED position.

3.Press POWER button to turn machine on.

4.The LCD will display ‘Hrd3’, prompting you to set the water hardness level. Programming this will determine the regularity of the ‘NEW FILTER’ alert which indicates when the water filter in the water tank needs to be replaced.

Setting Water Hardness

Remove the supplied water hardness test strip from the wrapper.

Dip the test strip into a sample of the water you have filled the tank with. Wait for one minute. The water hardness setting is indicated by the number of red squares displayed on the test strip eg. 3 red squares indicates a water hardness setting of 3.

Press UP or DOWN arrow to the required setting from ‘Hrd1’ (softest water) to ‘Hrd5’ (hardest water). Press MENU button to set. Machine will beep to confirm selection.

NOTE

If there is no selection within 5 minutes, the machine will default to setting ‘Hrd3’.

5.A pumping/vibrating sound will be heard indicating empty boilers are being filled with water for the first time. The LCD will display the current boiler temperature as it heats up.

6.After approximately 10 minutes, the machine will reach the default operating temperature

(200˚F/93˚C) and all 4 buttons will illuminate. The machine is now in STANDBY mode, ready for the next step, ‘Flushing The Machine’.

POWER

NOTE

You will not be able to select the 1 CUP or 2 CUP functions; access the cleaning cycle in the menu options; or activate the

steam wand until the machine has reached operating temperature (STANDBY mode). The machine will beep 3 times if one of these functions is selected.
