The descale light keeps blinking, what should I do?

The 'Descale' light that turns on indicates that it is time to de-scale the machine.
Scale - or mineral deposits- form from the water you run through your Keurig coffee machine. If not cleaned regularly, the buildup can clog the lines in your machine and ruin the heating element. The manufacturer recommends you descale Keurig coffee makers once every six months for normal water conditions and once every three months if you live in an area with hard water.
You will need :
  • Keurig coffee maker
  • 48 oz. white distilled vinegar
  • Water
  • Large ceramic cup
  • Sink

Instructions :
  • 1 Unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.
  • 2 Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.
  • 3 Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.
  • 4 Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.
  • 5 Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.
  • Good luck ;)

    How to descale a breville one cup

    NOTE: Not my instructions i just found something similar.

    According to the instructions for Breville Hot Cup (presumably similar to yours - the adjustable flow one):
    1. Fill it to the max and dispense one cup of water.
    2. Add a citric based descaling product into the cup and stir.
    3. Tip contents into kettle and close lid.
    4. Dispense water from the kettle, discarding the water until it reaches the 'min' mark.
    5. Empty remaining water into sink, rinse out with clean water.
    6. Fill kettle with fresh water and dispense cups of water until it reaches the 'min' mark. Empty the rest into the sink, then refill ready for use.

    Breville hot cup

    Breville Hot Cup spitting:
    Hi Louise.
    My HAZ upright kettle did the same thing recently.
    Sounds like your element-tube has a rust-hole, which allowed water to enter the normally dry and cozy filament area. The water that seeps inside hits the red-hot filament, vaporises to steam which violently expands out of the pinhole.
    Remove element, check for corrosion, renew.
    Hope this helps. Clive.

    My dishwasher doesn't seem to be washing the


    Water Inlet Valve

    A dishwasher's water inlet valve is its most common part to fail. When your dishes are not being fully cleaned, quite often a faulty water inlet valve is to blame. Test your dishwasher's water inlet valve, and if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace it.

    Upper or Lower Spray Arm

    Your dishwasher has a lower spray arm. It may also have an upper spray arm at the top of the dishwasher. These spray arms are designed to shoot high pressure, high temperature water at your dishes. It is possible that the holes of the spray arms, where the water comes out, are blocked with debris, affecting wash quality. You should inspect your dishwasher's spray arms regularly. Clean out the spray arms as need be.

    Heating Element

    Water temperature is a key element in achieving clean dishes. A dishwasher's heating element is not designed to heat the water that enters it. Rather, the heating element is designed to maintain the heat of the water that enters the dishwasher. Its a good idea to run the hot water in your sink for a couple of minutes before you run the dishwasher. Just to make sure the water is nice and hot before it enters the dishwasher. If the water is unable to stay hot, it can adversely affect your dishwasher's cleaning ability.

    Filter/Drain Grate

    There is a filter in your dishwasher. Its function is to keep large particles of food and foreign objects away from the pump. Many of the newly-manufactured dishwashers have self-cleaning filters, and routine cleaning isn't a concern. However, some other dishw ashers need to have the filter removed and cleaned regularly. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your dishwasher. Consult your owner's manual for specific directions for removing your dishwasher's filter and cleaning it.

    Detergent or Detergent Cup

    It could just be that you aren't using enough soap to completely wash your dishes. Your dishwasher may be designed to dispense soap at two different times during the wash cycle. If you don't fill all of the detergent cups, then the diswasher will lose a cleaning cycle. Also, if you use a gel-type detergent, try switching to a powered kind. Powders tend to dissolve better in hot water. And don't buy in bulk. Detergents are most effective in the first two weeks. After that, they decrease in potency.

    Alternatively, your dishwasher's detergent cup could be defective in some way. It is possible that it is gunked up full of built up detergent, and a thorough cleaning may be enough to get it working again. If that doesn't do the trick, you probably need to replace the entire detergent cup assembly. If your cup isn't even opening, please see our section My dishwasher detergent cup won't open.

    Cofee machine is not giving any coffe just heating the water but not despensing any thing

    It may be that the pipework is blocked. Coffee makers need to be regularly cleaned to prevent this.

    Try using a descaler (which you should be able to buy from your local supermarket).

    If there is nothing at all comming through, then it may be too late but give it a try, otherwise buy a new one and follow the cleaning instructions to prevent it happening again.

    I just tried the solution from comment dated 1/13/10. I took out the water tank and reseated it. As I did that, I noticed a small gap at the top back of the tank, that it wasn't resting completely against the unit well. I pushed it back and it has not shut off since.
