INSTALLATION AND ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
Place the appliance on a flat surface to ensure it is perfectly stable. Before connecting the appliance to the mains:

  • Align the hole of the hopper with one of the holes of the adjusting ring-nut (see figure F1). Check that the fan does not prevent lowering the adjustment disc stopper pin, otherwise change the hole.
  • Fasten, using the appropriate screw. - make sure the switch is off (position 0) and that the voltage and frequency data given on the data plate are commensurate with that of the mains supply.

APPLIANCE FUNCTIONS
Once the coffee hopper is placed firmly on the upper grinding blades holder, pour in the coffee beans.
Put the lid on the coffee hopper and open the fan, to allow the coffee beans to flow into the grinder.
Do not turn the appliance on without the coffee hopper or without its lid.
To start the appliance, press the main switch (position 1). At night or when operators are absent, turn off the switch.

  • In Standard mode, press the select button to scroll through the menu. When the required dose is displayed, press the dosing button to start the grinding process.
  • In Push and Grind mode, selection and grinding are directly controlled with the dosing button. Press it once for Dose No.1, twice for Dose No.2 and three times for Dose No.3, if enabled.
  • In addition, the appliance has a Continuous Dose function that allows grinding of the required amount of coffee without setting the time by simply pressing the dosing button.To interrupt the grinding of any timed dose, press the select button.

INITIAL START-UP

  • When you start up the appliance, a short welcome message appears on the display.
  • After a few seconds, one of the pre-set functions appears.
  • To switch from one function to another, press the select button positioned above the display (blue).
  • To adjust grain coarseness, use the continuous dose and precision scales to weigh the exact amount in grams. Each time you adjust the grinding (see Grinding Adjustment below), remember not to count the first two double doses because they might contain part of the ground coffee from the previous adjustment operation.
  • Once the coffee is pressed and you have checked the required extraction time, proceed with adjusting the programmed doses. (See Programmed Doses).
  • Please note that every time you adjust the grinding process, it will be necessary to check that the amount of ground coffee is as required.
  • For the M7D version, fitted with conical burrs, a test run with at least 1kg of coffee for grinding is necessary before proceeding with final adjustments.

GRINDING ADJUSTMENT
Micrometric regulation
Turn the horizontal regulation knobs to change the coarseness of the ground coffee. Micrometric regulation does not require blocking. Regulate the grinder with the motor turned on if there is any coffee in the grinder, with it turned off if it is empty (see figure F3). “+” shows the rotation direction to increase the coarseness of the ground coffee. “- “ to decrease the coarseness of the ground coffee. We recommend grinding and using a few grams of coffee each time you change the coarseness, which will help remove the small amount of ground coffee already inside the grinder. If the coffee flow is too slow it means that the ground coffee is too fine, while if the flow is too fast it means the ground coffee is too course.
Many other factors can also affect the coffee flow, such as the amount of coffee, how much it has been pressed, the appliance adjustment, the cleanliness of the filters and the climatic conditions.
