Solis Palazzo Descaling (?) Problem? Please Help!

Hello. The temperature light flashes, the red water light flashes and the grind light is on solid. No request to descale light.

The grinds are empty, I cleaned the united and screen. Tank has water. The steam wand sputters and heats water, but not as strong as I remember. Is this a descale issue or a control board issue? Thank you.

Hi
He has the first part correct, but when you rinse the machine with fresh water the machine needs to quit on its own and you will know this when the descale light is off, but you will have a flashing green light and a steady red light over the water drop. Refill the water tank, the close the steam knob and then open it again. This will clear the red light and then the machine will start heating. IMPORTANT on any automatic machine is when the water tank is off the machine don't do anything with the beans. A chip of bean in the water receptacle can be a big problem for the machine.

Hi, difficult to understand the status of your machine, but here is my experience, I just fixed the machine for my parents. It was about the same problem. First here is the link to the PDF of the manual: http://www.solis.ch/franzoesisch/kundendienst/kundendienst_f.htm
(choose the model and column E for English) I would:

  1. ventilate
  2. descale

I also found an other and more specific instruction for descaling, but in german. I'm Swiss, so here are the most important point:
  1. Machine ON ; "turning knob steam" OFF
  2. Remove the Capuccino nozzle > put a big cup under the tube
  3. put 0.5 liter fresh water + 0.5 liter decalcifying agent in the tank (or 1:1 ratio)
  4. Press CLEAN and POWDER buttons together > both buttons and DESCALE LED light
  5. Open fully the "turning knob steam"
  6. Descaling program starts, for about 40 minutes ; DESCALE LED flashes
  7. Important: don't add any water into the tank during the process !
  8. Program ends when the 5 buttons and the DESCALE LED flash
  9. Close the "turning knob steam"
  10. Remove the tank, clean it and fill it with fresh water, about 1 liter
  11. Empty your big cup and replace it 
  12. Fully open the "turning knob steam", till the tank is empty
  13. Close the "turning knob steam"
  14. DESCALE LED flashs, not the buttons
  15. Refill the tank
  16. Ventilate about 10 sec. (Open/Close the "turning knob steam")
  17. the machine is ready (or should be)
.... as simple ... good luck

Beans grind and are wet but coffee doesn't come out... it goes through the cycle and spits out a little. When cycle is complete, the water light comes on, but after priming the same thing occurs.


This tells me that either the grind is too fine and or the brew unit screen, and discharge tube needs to be cleaned. Try this first press the button for making a espresso using the manual function, do not add coffee through the door then press the brew button. If water flows freely then the grind is too fine, if you get the water prime error then the screen under the red o-ring on the brew unit needs to be cleaned.

Espresso does not make


Remove the portafilter and press the brew button, if the water flows from the head with a nice flow then the problem is with the grind (too fine), or the coffee has been Tamp too hard.
If water barely flows when you press the button then try backwashing the machine and removing the shower screen to clean it.

Red descale light is on


I use distilled white vinegar, but you can use specialized coffee cleaners with this model:

Descaling
Descaling 11
Descale your Tassimo machine every three months to keep it
operating at full potential.
1
Descaling products are widely available from stores selling coffeemakers and espresso
machines. Only use a product intended for descaling. Mix the descaling product
directly in the water container, following the instructions provided on the descaling
packaging. Replace the water container on the machine.
2 Place a large cup or mug on the cup stand, insert the cleaning disc, bar code down,
and close the brew mechanism. When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release
the start/stop button. The brew cycle will fill the machine with descaling solution. Empty
the cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes.
3 Open the brew mechanism and close it again, leaving the cleaning disc in place.
When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop button. When the
machine stops running, empty the cup, and let the machine stand for 15 minutes.
Repeat this step two more times for maximum descaling effectiveness. Discard the
remaining descaling agent from the water container, rinse it thoroughly and refill
with fresh, cold water.
4 Open and close the brew mechanism again, leaving the cleaning disc in place.
When the AUTO light illuminates, press and hold the start/stop button to flush water
through the machine. The MANUAL light will flash. When the cup is full, release the
start/stop button, empty the cup, and replace it on the cup stand.
5 Repeat step 4, flushing clean water through the machine in the same manner and
emptying the cup as it fills. To ensure that all the descaling solution is completely rinsed
away, flush two full water containers through the machine before using it again.

Trouble Lights Stay On


How long does it take for your machine to grind for 1 cup? Longer then 10 seconds? Grinder setting?

 

Descaling should be done every 2-3 regardless if the light comes on or not. To reset the light hold the steam button until the light goes off.

 

Descaling information can be found at http://www.cerinicoffee.com/clean_descale_coffee_equipment_instructions.asp

 

Hope this helps!
