Perform this procedure when your machine is COLD!

While the machine is unplugged, remove the portafilter handle, drip pan, drip tray cover, water reservoir, water reservoir cover and any other loose components that may fall when the machine is tipped over.

Rest the machine on its back.

With all buttons and switches in the off position, plug in the machine.

Find a container that can hold about 20oz. or more.

Hold the container under the steam wand and tilt it slightly down, so that the container is in a position to catch water that will be coming out of the steam wand.

Turn on the power switch.
Activate the pump.
Open the steam valve

Water should now be coming out of the steam wand and landing in your container.
Run the machine until the stream of water has dissipated.

Tilt the machine on its head, following the steam wand with your tall-sided container.

The stream of water will most likely pick up pace again.

Once the water has stopped, set the machine back down on its back and turn off your water and main power switches. The boiler is now drained.
