How to clean a Jura GIGA X8 ?

Written By Océane Delahaut, last update on

Does your Jura GIGA X8 machine need cleaning? Or do you want to clean it before moving?

Good to know

  1. Your Jura machine needs to be cleaned after 180 coffees (preparations) or 80 rinses when switched on. 
  2. Javry recommends the use of Jura or Solute detergent tablets to clean your machine. The use of other products could damage your machine. 
  3. It is important not to interrupt the cleaning program once it has started, as this could also damage your machine or render it unusable.
  4. A cleaning takes about 20 minutes, but it will only take a few minutes of your time (the machine cleans itself).
