    I descaled my machine just a few days ago (after having it for a month and enjoying it throughout each day - heavy use I'm sure). But after descaling according to both the Bosch Tassimo instructions and the Descaling (liquid) bottle, here I am, three days later and the red Descaling light is back on. I had trouble getting it to go off (eventually it did) when I descaled it the first time. Now I am descaling again just in case it didn't all work again... I know there is hard water in my town.

    Same problem. red light did not go off after I descaled the Bosch Tassimo machine. I repeated the process a second time and followed all directions but the red light remains. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Solution: Just refill the water tank with water (no descaling solution) all the way to the "Max Line". Then run the full descaling program again --takes approx. 20 minutes. After the program runs completely you will get the yellow "standby" light on and the red "descaling" light will be off.

Next time you descale, be sure and fill your water tank to the "Max Line" before running the descaling program.
Hint: An incomplete cycle (not full tank) is what makes the red light stay on. In other words, it's staying red to tell you to run a full cycle (beginning with the water tank filled to the "Max Line"). Hope this tip is helpful!

The red light won't go off even after refilling the water tank and changing the filter


Which red light? The descale light or the water level light? both are red. If the first, you need to go through the descale process as described in http://www.manualowl.com/m/Bosch/TAS4511UC/Manual/216487 If the refill lamp lights, there may be a fault, but try the descaling process anyway.

The red light is staying on, what do i need to do?


The light stays on if you do not follow the instructions when descaling. You must hold the button for 3 seconds to descale. It takes about 20 minutes. If you press the button for less than 3 seconds with the service disc you just run the water through quickly to rinse/clean and the machine doesn't reset the rescale light.

Red warning light on bottom left dial is on. Machine still working correctly..... What does this mean? Thanks....


It indicates that it is time to descale your Tassimo. Consult their website for instructions and materials (warning, don't use vinegar).

Tassimo red light stays on ran descaling disc twice


After many months, I solved the problem of the red light staying on the Tassimo Coffee Maker. Use these easy steps.
1. Fill a 2 cup measuring cup with hot water.
2. Mix in descaler.
3. Pour in the empty water tank.
4. Put the yellow cleaning disk in the chamber and close chamber. Put the two cup measuring cup under the spout.
5. Push and hold the brew button for about 3 seconds (until the red and green light flash.
6. Now don't touch the machine. It will do it's thing for about 20 minutes. (Don't be impatient and start to push buttons, just leave it)
7. When it finishes it's cycle. The red light will turn off. Then clean the water tank and put fresh water and run clean water through the brewing cycle 4 times. Your machine is now ready for use.

Red de scaling light won't shut off


Removing the red descaling light is simple.
1. Fill reservoir with half vinegar and half water (no need for the special descaling product from Tassimo).
2. Turn on machine.
3. Insert yellow cleaning disc found in back of machine.
4. This is where most people have the their problem...You must hold the start button for 3 to 5 seconds for the descaling program to start. Both green and red light will flash.
5. Once started, use a large cup to catch the output of water.
6. The machine will cycle through the descaling program in about 30 to 45 minutes. Be paitent!!!
7. Once completed, run many cups of plain water through the system to remove the vinegar taste.
8. Red light problem is solved.

Hope this works for you.

A red light is on and I think its the descaler light...what do I do?


Purchase some citric acid based descaling tablets,
Fill the water tank to the very top and add the tablet to the water
Insert the cleaning disc
Press and hold the button to start the descaling program
Continue to refil the watertank as necessary until the descaling light goes off (This can take over an hour on a Bosch machine - or about 20-40 mins on a Bruan).
