Cleaning & Maintenance

Find step by step instructions and how-to videos for support in your daily and monthly clean of your Formula Pro Advanced. Also, find the best way to store your Formula Pro Advanced once completely finished with it. 

Daily Clean

It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to clean the funnel after every 4 bottles made. This will keep your Formula Pro Advanced dispensing accurately.

Always thoroughly wash your hands and any surfaces that will be used before the daily clean.

1. Remove the Funnel and Funnel cover by pulling out and down. PLEASE NOTE: You don’t need to remove the Powder Container parts for daily cleaning.

2. Wash Funnel and Funnel Cover with hot soapy water and rinse well. Air dry completely before re-assembling.

3. Wipe down Powder-Dispensing Hole on the underside of the Powder container and remove any spilt powder or milk on the machine using a dry paper towel or soft dry clean cloth.

4. Replace the water in the water container daily to keep it fresh. Tip: To avoid waste and help you remember, only fill the water container with what you think you will need each day.

To make daily cleaning easier you can buy an extra Funnel and Funnel Cover to give you one in use and one in the wash. Shop Now.

Monthly Descaling Instructions

Once a month give your Formula Pro Advanced a thorough cleaning.

Hand wash all parts shown above with warm soapy water, rinse well and air dry thoroughly.

You can leave the formula powder in the Powder Container during the descaling process.

To prevent mineral scale on the water heater inside your Formula Pro Advanced, follow these easy steps:

1. Remove the Water Tank, empty it and fill it with 600ml distilled (clear) vinegar and 600ml of sterile or pre-boiled cooled water.

2. Place the Water Tank on the Base of the machine and place a cup larger than 300ml under the funnel.

3. Select “300ml” with the “ml” button, then press the “water only”  to dispense.

4. Empty the cup, place it back under the Funnel, then press the “water only” button again to dispense another 300ml.

5. Now unplug the machine, remove the Water Tank, and empty it. Let the machine sit for 4 hours.

6. Wash, rinse and fill the Water Tank to the max line with sterile or pre-boiled cooled water, then place it back on the base.

7. Plug in the machine, place a cup to catch 300ml water and use the “water only” button to run a 300ml cycle. Dispose of the water dispensed in the cup and then repeat this step to run the entire tank of water through the machine. When the “Low Water” indicator turns on, you’re done rinsing.

8. Refill the Water Tank with sterile or pre-boiled cooled water and return to normal use.
