If a survey were conducted to establish what volume of paper accumulates in an average household over a fixed period of time, say ten years, through the manuals and instruction booklets that accompany every new appliance and device we purchase, I think the result would be astounding.
When it comes to manuals and instruction booklets you basically get two types of people; those that throw them out and those that religiously collect every manual and hold on to it long after the appliance has been sent for recycling.
Sometimes repair manuals are handy to help one try and save money. Invariably that does not always work. Some appliances are sophisticated and should not be tampered with by persons not trained and equipped to do so.

Espresso machines are a case in point. They produce the espresso through the use of a boiler which creates steam ad pressure. One tampered with it could become a safety issue.
Especially commercial espresso machines should well be left alone. Some coffee machine manufacturers are quite happy to allow access to their manuals.
The instruction manuals for Mr Coffee appliances are freely available on the Internet. Having recently moved house, I misplaced my carefully stored manuals for Mr Coffee appliances I own.
To be able to download them online was confirmation to me of the importance of the consumer to a company such as Mr. Coffee. I honestly have no idea whether other coffee machine manufacturers have the same facility as Mr. Coffee has.
Therefore I cannot say whether I can download a manual for any of the Delonghi coffee makers on the market. Although, I must say that while surfing online, I am not able to see many such sites around.
There are one or two other coffee machine manufacturers that have manuals available online; how detailed that information is, is unclear. Knowing that the manuals are available online also means I can decide on whether to download them or not.
If they are available I can access them when needed. I do not have to print them for the eventually of possibly needing them and I save paper which is not a bad thing to do.
Whilst I do not necessarily need them immediately, the Mr Coffee coffee maker are working fine thank you, it is still reassuring to have your manuals for Mr Coffee appliances in your possession.
