Very comprehensive document which is a must-have for any Satellit 2100 owner whose set up is somewhat intricate. Due to the bad quality of the pictures that are rather dark and a bit blurred I gave 4-star feedback.
The manual was missing 2 pages but when I presented the problem to the company they made every attempt to get the 2 pages to me, when they couldn't they refunded my money. A very pleasing and easy transaction. The manual they provided was the original, it was concise and to the point. I plan to do business with this company again when should the need arise.
The owners manual is very good. all my how to questions were answered in detail.

Using and Replacing the Fresh Water Filter
(depending on the model) After around 60 brews (or 6 weeks, whichever occurs first), the fresh water filter must be replaced as follows to ensure that the filter retains its effectiveness: 1. Open the lid of the fresh water filter compartment (Figure 9). 2. Remove the container by the handle (Figure 10). 3. Turn the cap on the bottom of the container to the left and remove (Figure 11). 4. Remove the old filter from the cap. Remove the new filter from its plastic bag, hold under running water and then place in position (Figure 12). The old filter can be treated as general household rubbish without cause for concern, the filter is manufactured on a vegetable base. 5. Place the cap on the container such that the marker arrows on the cap and the container are aligned (Figure 11). Tighten the cap and insert the container such that the hooks on the container and hooks on the coffee machine mesh together, and the container is firmly seated (arrows in Figure 10). 6. Close the lid on the fresh water filter compartment again.
Descaling â To Make Your Coffee Machine Last Longer
The life of your coffee machine is extended by regular descaling. We recommend descaling every three months as a preventative measure.
If you use a permanent filter, this must be removed from the swivel filter prior to descaling. The fresh water filter must not be fitted to the coffee machine during descaling. Therefore remove the fresh water filter container each time prior to descaling (see Figure 10). A liquid, environmentally acceptable, descaler should be used for descaling, these are generally available in the shops. Only use the descaler in accordance with the manufacturerâs instructions. Do not use any descaler based on concentrated formic acid. Fill the fresh water container and only then add the descaler â not the other way round! Swivel the filter into the appliance. Place the coffee jug with lid on the hotplate. (Please note that the lid of the coffee jug is used to open the filter valve and must therefore be fitted for the water to flow correctly.) Leave the descaling solution to act for approx. 15 minutes, then switch on the appliance. Once the descaling solution has run through, switch off the appliance. If necessary, repeat the descaling process. Then repeat with plain water at least twice. Thoroughly rinse the coffee jug, lid and swivel filter under running water. Operate the filter valve several times whilst rinsing.
Attach the appropriate section of the date sticker supplied to the inside of the fresh water container lid. You will always know when the fresh water filter next needs to be replaced. Independent of the frequency of use, it is imperative that the fresh water filter be replaced at the latest every six months, this is necessary to avoid the build up of bacteria in the filter.
