    Started descaling, machine descaled, asked for fresh water for rinsing. Machine rinses till water-reservoir is completely empty (so does not 'see' there's no more water), says to restart the machine, and then start the rinsing cycle again. No way to stop this, Machine rinses till water finished, says to restart, and then start the rinsing cycle again.

I actually found the anticalc instructions in the manual that accompanied my machine. If you don't have the original manual for your machine, you might be able to find it at http://www.krupsusa.com/Consumer+Services/Product+Support/Manuals/Use+Intructions.htm . Good luck!

How to descale espresso machines.


Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling. The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow, reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less often than if you make cappuccinos.

Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet, then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee. Some popular models of Espresso machines are Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3200S, Krups Nespresso CitiZ & Milk XN 7106 Fire-engine red, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400, DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6600, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 and Magimix Nespresso Citiz M190.

Here is a basic generic picture of a espresso system of how they work.

1. Empty the water tank, drip tray and grounds container.
2. Insert tray and grounds container, refill tank with with 0.5 Lt. of water and add descaling agent (not the pill or powder used for clean cycle) to tank. Make sure its completely dissolved.
3. Place a container or cup under the steam wand large enough to hold 0.5 lt.

Display says Descaling and press OK
4. Press the water button

Display says Descaling in Progress
after the descaling agent is exhausted

Display says Empty Drip Tray and Spent Grounds
5 Also remove rinse and refill the water tank to Max line
6. Press the water button again

after the machine stops
7. Empty the drip tray and spent. ground container and replace

Krups Anticalc Kit for descaling. There is no information in the box how to use this kit. How much water to add?. How long does it sit for? How many times does one boil the water after the descaling...


Cleaning the Machine
- Never wash your espresso machine accessories in the dishwasher.


After use, the water container must be emptied.

• Drip tray
This must be emptied after using the appliance by taking off the grid See figure (19)below. If several espressos are being prepared one after the other, the drip tray should be emptied from time to time (about once every 7 - 8 espressos). The presence of water is normal and does not signify a leak. If necessary, clean the drip tray and its grid with water and a little non-abrasive washing-up liquid, rinse and dry. When reassembling the machine, ensure that the plastic lining is in the right place See figure (20) below.


• The brewing head, the filter basket and the filter holder


These must be cleaned after each use. All you need to do is wipe a damp cloth over the brewing head of your appliance and to wash the other accessories in water and a little non-abrasive dishwashing liquid, rinse and dry. If the brewing head is heavily clogged up, unscrew the grid using a coin, clean it and refit it, pressing down firmly See figure (21)below.
When your espresso machine is not being used, do not leave the filter holder in the appliance to prevent wear on the gasket.


• The cup warming plate: remove this to clean it with water and a little non-abrasive dishwashing liquid, rinse and dry.


• The cappuccino accessory


For more thorough cleaning the cappuccino accessory can be dismantled from the appliance.


Descaling

Descalling (SIC) is necessary to keep your espresso machine running efficiently.

As a result descaling of your espresso machine should be done fairly frequently
with citric or tartaric acid.

• Use caution when descaling your espresso machine as the acid substance within the descaling powder may damage countertops or any other surface it comes in contact with.

However, we would advise you to use the reference solution as W F054 that is available from Krups. Descaling depends on the hardness of the water, but also on the frequency of use.


To descale, follow the following method:


• Unscrew the grid from the brewing head of the appliance and clean it See figure (21)below.
• Dissolve a packet of KRUPS descaling solution in 17 oz1510 ml of lukewarm water and pour the whole batch into the empty water container.
• Place a container under the brewing head. Run through about 1/3 of the liquid immediately, setting the selector to the position See figure (9)below.
• Stop the appliance, leaving the position See figure (9)below engaged and wait for 10 - 15 minutes to allow the descaler to take effect.
• Next, start the machine again and allow the rest of the liquid to run through.
• Then rinse with two water containers of fresh water and replace the grid on the head of the appliance (see section on “Cleaning the machine”).


The warranty does not include espresso machines that do not function, or do not function properly, because descaling has not been carried out.
