I had this happen once and had to put it through the descale process again. Just put more water in the tank, try it again and see what happens.

Put them in the water chamber then they dissolve and you run they cycle. I would cycle through a second time also with water only to flush the system out.

hope that helps.

take up smoking
and then you will loose you smell and taste.
every thing is made of plastic and aluminum now.
only a stainless pot does not leach plastic cfc into water when hot.

SOURCE: After performing a descaling cycle, the descaling light still flashes, what is wrong?

The manual states that after you descale, you have to hold down the hot water button for 6 seconds, that will turn it off and "reset the timer" till the next time it needs to descale.

The button to push was the steam button and hold for 5 to 10 seconds until the light goes out.

Ran descale program and coffee still tastes funny (bitter)


If you are using a Claris filter, please remove this from the watertank. The descaling agent will clog the filter and make the water taste bad. After descaling, also be sure to rinse the watertank so there`s no resedue of the solvent left in the tank.

However, bitter taste on the coffe usually is related to the coffee side; Try to run a cleaning program. And check grinder settings. If the powder is to fine, it will increase the contact time, and that will make the coffee bitter. My advise is to clean the machine and experiment a little with the grinder settings.

Good luck!

you are supposed to go through the "before first use" instructions....which include filling the resevoir with water and brewing only water until its all gone. then start using the machine normally...remembering that the machine takes a few brew cycles to adjust properly to the coffee being used (this assuming this is the giro plus model which has the feature-"aroma something or other...)

also, descaling would help and removing the brew group and rinsing it out...

Miele descaling funnel?


DO NOT USE THAT MUCH VINEGAR! Put a tiny bit of vinegar in the carafe and fill carafe the rest of the way with water. Run that vinegar/water through machine. Using another container, fill machine with plain water and run that through. Repeat until the vinegar taste is gone. If you do not run lots of plain water through the machine after, your coffee will taste like...um...disgusting! Also, use a spell-checker before improving this posting.
**************
To clean hard water deposits from a coffee maker use distilled white vinegar. You may need to use as much as a gallon if the scale buildup is really bad. Fill clean coffee pot one half full of vinegar and run through machine as if making coffee. Repeat this process several times using fresh vinegar until it comes out clear. Do this once a week and your maker will work much better. **************
Use citric acid or LEMON JUICE CONCENTRATE instead of vinegar. It cleans just as well but doesn't leave the funky odor that vinegar does. You can run enough water to get rid of the vinegar taste, but the odor will linger for days or weeks. Much better to use lemon juice concentrate (no pulp!!) or one of the commercial products like the one available from Starbucks.

I have a solis 5000 coffee maker and would like to descale. the users manual says never use vinegar as it will harn the machine. It recomends a product called SOLIPOL, is there another product that you...


Hi
Starbucks used to carry a descaling product for their machines. Yes don't use vinegar because it is only 5% before you dilute it. It also leaves a taste for about 2 weeks that will affect the taste of your coffee. You can use Citric acid. 1 tablespoon per 32 oz of water. Use at least 2 table spoons. Dissolve the descaling solution so there are no crystals left. Now.
Turn the machine off and then push and hold the 2 buttons at the same time. While holding them down, turn the machine on.
Release the buttons and turn the dial counter clockwise till it stops.
This will keep the machine from heating.
If you push the steam button the pump will activate.
Open the steam knob. Run 8 oz through the wand and rekease the button. Let it set for 10 minutes, then open the knob again. Repeat until the tank is empty. Rinse with a whole tank of fresh water and your done.
If you have the Digital there is a program in the menu for descaling. There is also a program for resetting the descal mode so it will tell you the next time it need to be done. Chose yes and push the enter button. Also change your water hardness to 4. Descale more often than not enough.

Coffee tastes very acidic


Hi kdimof,
I realize you posted this problem over a year ago, but I was curious to see if you were ever able to resolve this problem, or find the exact cause.
I have the same issue you describe. I descaled my Lattissima for the first time using the Nespresso descaling solution. And now, two months later, I cannot remove the chemical smell/taste of the descaling solution. I've run numerous descaling cycles with just water (as per Nespresso's customer service advice), with no success. I was forced to accept a refurbished machine (even though my Lattissima was only 3 months old). The refurbished machine is currently on the way. We'll see if I have the same issue when I descale this one.
Thanks, Redfran

Descaling light on


Per Pages 9 and 10 of Keurig Model B40 Use and Care Guide,
1) turn off the "Auto Off "feature
2) fill empty water reservoir with 48 ozs of undiluted white vinegar.
3. Place ceramic cup on the drip tray and run a brew cycle. Do not use a K-cup!
4. Press the large mug Button
- let Keurig coffee maker fill mug with vinegar & empty in sink.
5. Repeat brew process until water reservoir of vinegar is empty. (remember to open and close lid between each cycle so large mug Button will flash.
6. Rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and fill with fresh water.
7. FINAL STEP RINSE CYCLE
a) place a ceramic cup on the drip tray
b) run regular brew cycles WITHOUT using a K-cup.
c) pour rinse water into sink each time.
d) repeat brew process until water reservoir is empty.
d) perform additional rinse cycles if you notice any residual vinegar taste.
e) if the red "De-scale" light remains illuminated after completing descale and rinse cycles, repeat the descaling procedure above.
Otherwise - you're good to go!
