Open the brew mechanism. Opening the brew mechanism will initiate the heating of the water and the HEATING light will flash. 2 Place a clean cup on the cup stand, adjusting the height of the stand up or down so that the rim of the cup is close to the brew mechanism. • To adjust the cup stand, insert your finger in the center of the stand, lift and turn. • To avoid spilling over, please choose the right sized cup for the drink you are making. 3 Position your choice of T-DISC on the T-DISC holder, label facing down. Firmly close the brew mechanism by pressing the clamp down until it shuts. The HEATING light may flash again as the machine heats the water to the required temperature for your drink. 4 When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop button. Brewing will start automatically. There may be a short pause during brewing; this is normal and is designed to draw out the full flavor of your drink. The AUTO light flashes throughout the brew cycle. When the machine has finished brewing, the indicator light will move from AUTO to MANUAL and then, after a delay of 30 seconds, to HEATING. 5 Open the brew mechanism, remove the T-DISC and discard. Your drink is now ready to be enjoyed. You can prepare the next beverage right away by repeating steps 2 - 5.
• All lights will blink the first time you turn on your machine. This is your cue to prepare your machine for use by following the quick instructions in Step 1 on separate insert. • If the water level runs low while you are preparing a beverage, all lights will flash. Simply remove and refill the water container, and brewing will continue automatically where it left off. It should not be necessary to discard the T-DISC and start over. • The AUTO light will blink throughout the brewing process. Some drinks require a pause in brewing as part of the recipe for brewing your perfect cup - this is to allow the optimal flavors to unfold and is a normal part of the brewing process. The AUTO light will continue to blink throughout this process.
HOW TO MAKE A DRINK • Place the mug of your choice on the cup stand. • When the STANDBY light illuminates, insert the T-DISC® of your choice and close the clamp. • The HEATING light will blink as the brewer heats the water to the optimal temperature for your drink. • Once the proper temperature is reached, the AUTO light will illuminate. When it lights up, press the start/stop button to begin the brew cycle. • The AUTO light will continue to flash throughout the brewing cycle. PLEASE NOTE: Some beverages have a pause in brewing after the initial influx of water into the T-DISC®. • The MANUAL light will illuminate when your drink is ready.
Yessir, you need a t-disc to use it, because the machine reads the bar code that is imprinted on the aluminum lid of the t-disc to get instructions of how hot the water should be, and how much water should be used for the beverage you're qnting to prepare. no t-disc, no drink, no working machine. it's that simple.
I found that most problems around the tassimo relate to the peircing mechanism being clean and properly in place (it moves sometimes when you open the lid), or that the "window" that reads the barcode needs to be kept clean. When i've gotten all lights blinking or going right to manual, I have found cleaning the window seems to fix the problem more often than not.
Mine sometimes does this but cleaning the barcode reader at the top of the machine (small glass panel) fixed it.
Also make sure the water container is seated correctly. If these dont fix it try pushing the water container left right/back front while there is a disc in the machine-mine has started to only work if I push the fitted water container backwards when "brewing".Its out of warranty now so I will make do until it breaks completely.
