  1. Soak the brewing unit in water for about 5 minutes, then rinse. NOTE: Do not use any detergent to clean the brewing unit. The inside of the piston is treated with lubricant that detergent would remove.
  2. After cleaning, reinsert the brewing unit so that the support (A) and the pin (B) at the bottom are fully engaged.
  3. Push the "PUSH" symbol until it clicks into place and the two red release buttons have clicked out.
