- Make sure the cylinder is properly inserted in the cylinder holder, with the pink cylinder handle lowered.
- Push the carbonating lever and check if you see gas entering the bottle. Make sure to push and release in one-second presses, no more than three times.
- Push the lever a few times and check for bubbles.
- Listen for a sputtering sound when you push the lever.
Pro-tip: SodaStream recommends keeping a back-up carbonating cylinder handy so you can keep enjoying fresh, fizzy drinks without interruption while you exchange the empty carbonator via courier service or in a store near you.
