Getting Started

Initial Start Up & FAQ's

This short informational sheet will help familiarize you

with your Pro6 Duo upon first use, and after any future restart from empty boiler after maintenance.

          1.  Remove the pop off black cap from the reservoir and fill to the top with filtered water or high quality tap water. Do not use distilled unless mixed with tap water at a minimum ratio of 20% tap/80% distilled.

          2. Push down both power & steam buttons that will light orange/red. The pump will begin to pump and both the yellow low water and green lights will flash, the orange light will stop flashing, the green light will continue to flash. You may need to add water more than once. The gauge will rise to approx. 6 bar and the heating light will go solid.

        3.  During this time you may attach your hose and confirm it is locked in place.

        4.   When the gauge has stopped and the steam ready light is solid, pull the trigger on the hose and begin releasing air from the boiler. The first release will cause the gauge to drop quickly to approximately 2 bar. This has now released a large portion of air from the boiler.

      Allow the gauge to rise again to the 6 bar range and the ready light is solid – pull the steam trigger and release. This time it should only drop to 3-4 Bar and repeat this action typically one more time.

    You are now ready to steam, your boiler is full and will stay that way unless you empty it for maintenance. Refill anytime your refill light illuminates and the beeper notifies you. Your steam ready light will always go solid while heated and sitting idle, and will flash when you are using the machine as this indicates the boiler is heating as you are steaming.

Why can I not use distilled water?

Why does my steam feel cool?

The steam feels that way because the moisture content of the steam is much lower than what we are used to. 212 is boiling point and that is saturated, in a boiler the higher the temperature the moisture will lessen and actually feel cool. However, the power is in the heat and it is hot! Do not touch the tip.

Boiler Maintenance

Maintenance of your boiler will keep your entire machine maintained and operating properly for years to come. The #1 cause of service related issues is poor maintenance. We love our customers, however we do not want to see you in for service! We suggest descaling every 60 hours of use.

Descaling with white vinegar

  • Unscrew and remove the drain plug from the bottom of the machine.
  • Drain the machine completely.
  • Put the drain plug back in.
  • Pour 2 cups white vinegar in the reservoir and fill the rest with water.
  • Turn on the machine and let the pump start pumping through the machine into the boiler.
  • When the signal to add water stops, this means the boiler is full.
  • Turn off the machine and let sit for at least 15 minutes up to overnight if you choose.
  • Drain the mixture from the bottom drain plug and any remaining vinegar in your top reservoir.
  • Refill with filtered tap water and continue operation.

Descaling with Durgol*

  • Unscrew and remove the drain plug from the bottom of the machine.
  • Drain the machine completely including reservoir.
  • Put the drain plug back in.
  • Pour the 16 oz bottle of Durgol into the reservoir.
  • Turn on the machine and let the pump start pumping through the machine into the boiler.
  • As soon as the pumping stops the machine will begin to heat (the machine is designed not to turn on the heating element until there is enough liquid in the boiler) when the heating starts to occur turn off the machine both buttons.
  • Let Durgol sit for about 15 minutes in boiler, shake it around and drain into a pan.
  • You should be able to use the Durgol probably another time so put back in the bottle for later.

How often should I descale?
