SOURCE: open lid release lever will not operate

Try holding down the top while sliding the lever towards you. Without holding down the top, I've had the same problem.

SOURCE: how much bicarb of soda do i use to descale my bosch tassimo

Sodium bicarbonate is not a descaling product. It makes a nice minimally abrasive cleaning agent when mixed as a paste. Sodium ions will exchange with calcium in a water softener when the calcium is dissolved in water. Once the calcium salt (calcium carbonate) forms, it doesn't go back into solution in a neutral or basic environment. A bicarbonate solution will be basic.

Descaling requires an acid. The Tassimo products say "Do not use vinegar" (acetic acid). I suspect they use citric acid in their descaling product. You can try the lemon-flavored Kool-aid (the version packaged in the envelopes that needs a sweetener added when it's a drink). Mix 1 tablespoon of the powder in 1 pint of water. However, you'll need to make more than a pint of the solution since you need 500 ml of liquid per cleaning cycle. (1 pint is ~473 ml.)

I hope this helps.

Yellow and red light on but nothing happening?


I have a Tassimo. The machine reads a bar code on the coffee cartridge that you put in before pressing brew button. You open the dispenser lid, place a cartridge in with the printing facing down. If you notice, the label has a bar code on it. There is a small rectangular window on the machine that you can see when you open up the dispenser lid. Make sure that the window is clean. If there is debris covering it, the machine wont be able to read the bar code and therefore will not know how to dispense for the specific cartridge you put in.
As for the manual, I found one on the Bosch website to download.
Good luck.

Take the disc out, hold the disc holder down flat, then close the lid. Open up and will work as normal. If this works for you, please visit sun-light. co.uk

My tassimo coffee comes out watery


Make sure you push the lid down all the way before putting the clamp down on the front.

I've noticed that the back of the lid on my vivy (t12) can get stuck up (even with the clamp down) causing the water jet to not be inserted all the way - which produced very weak coffee.

What does it mean to descale my tassimo? the yellow light is on and the screen keeps saying "descale". thanks


In order to keep your Tassimo machine operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three months. Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to descale your Tassimo machine is intended for this specific use only. Mix the descaling product directly in the water container, following the instructions provided on the descaling packaging. Then replace the water container on the machine. Place a large cup or mug on the cup stand, insert the cleaning disc, bar code down and close the brew mechanism. As soon as the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop button. This will fill the brew cycle with descaling solution. Empty the cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes. Then open the brew mechanism and close it again, leaving the cleaning disc in place. Repeat this step two more times for maximum descaling effectiveness.

Discard the remaining descaling agent from the water container, rinse it well and refill with fresh, cold water. Clean the machine by flushing water through it in the same manner and emptying the cup as it fills. Make sure that all the descaling solution has been completely rinsed away, and then flush two full water containers through the machine before using it again. Remove the cleaning disc, rinse and refill the water container and your Tassimo machine is ready to use. Also, before you descale your Tassimo machine, always unplug it. Also, never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Tassimo machine. This method works for most espresso machines, including some of these popular models: the DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3200S, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400, Gaggia 74507BCN Classic, Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6600, the BC0255 DeLonghi coffee machine and the Krups Nespresso CititZ XN 7006.

How do we insert the coffee pods


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.

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.

All the lights are flashing on my Braun Tassimo TA1200 and will not make coffee


Several possibilities: (1) No water in tank.
(2) Tank not inserted properly. Try removing tank and then replacing it, making sure that the hook-tab at the back of the tassimo body engages the matching slot at the front of the tank.
(3) Tank not seated properly. Try pressing down on the tank and twisting left or right. If this stops the blinking and allows your drink to brew, at least you know where the problem is. If you have to do this all the time, consider exchanging the unit.
(4) The lights will all also blink if there is residue (coffee, milk, etc) on the bar code reader window. The residue is usually plainly visible. The bar code reader window is a horizontal rectangel directly under where the bar code of the T-Disc sits in the Tassimo. To fix this, just wipe the window clean (no need to scrub), close the lid again and check for blinking.

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.

Tassimo


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.
