This is how you empty the boiler on the GILDA espresso machine

If you are going on holiday, we recommend to empty the hot water and steam boiler of your GILDA coffee machine. This is quite simple:


  1. Remove the water tank
  2. Place a cup under the hot water pipe
  3. Kippschalter Heisswasser antippen
  4. When «E1» appears on the display: Delete the message by tapping the hot water toggle switch again, press the toggle switch again - until air comes out of the hot water pipe
  5. Place a cup under the steam pipe
  6. Empty the steam boiler by pressing the toggle switch steam (down)
