How to clean a Jura E8 ?

Written By Floriane Mailleux, last update on

Is your Jura E8 coffee machine in need of cleaning? Or do you want to clean it before moving?

Here are the steps to clean your Jura E8.

Good to Know

  • Your Jura machine requires cleaning after 180 preparations (cups of coffee) or 80 rinses at startup. You can either wait for the machine to prompt for cleaning or initiate cleaning by pressing the "P" (programming) button.
  • Javry recommends using Jura or Solute cleaning tablets to clean your machine. Using other products may damage your machine.
  • It is crucial not to interrupt the cleaning program once it has started, as it could also damage your machine or render it unusable.
  • The cleaning process takes approximately 20 minutes, but it will only take a few minutes of your time as the machine cleans itself.

  11. Put everything back in place.
