The red light for descaling won't go off after descaling

The red light that looks like a panel with cut water-drops turned on recently, I suppose indicating that my saeco magic de luxe espresso machine needed descaling. I suppose this because I lost my instruction booklet. So I proceeded to descale my machine with a special solution I bought at starbucks. the light did not go off after the first descaling, so I did it again, and again. I ran out of solution and the f%&!"... light won't go off.  The machine is still working, but the coffee has a bitter taste in it after being rinsed 3 times. Is there something you recommend? Juan

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

Try using the auto descale function, turn machine off with main switch, the press Steam + Espresso coffee + Main switch, place a large container under steam wand and open slowly.

Why won 't descaling process begin?


everything what you have to do is to turn hot water to start,then after 10-15 seconds stop machine and turn it off. Wait about 10 minutes and rinse rest of descaling agent.Then fill the watertank with fresh water and rinse again trought hot water. When the water finish your machine is descaled.Then press hot water/steam button for 5-6 seconds and light go of. That is all.

Does anybody know how to get rid of flashing red exclamation light on my gaggia platinum vogue?


It does not need to be descaled as this is not the descaling indicator...The water circuit needs to be primed. Turn the knob to the water drop and drain water into a bowl. Hold the water drop button down while this is happening until the red light turns green. Presto.

Red light is on (looks like an M) and I don't know why??


It means time to descale , however if you want to get rid of it, just press and hold the water button until it goes off.
To descale..fill the container with descaler and let water goes through the system by openning the valve and catch the descaler with a container. Turn off the machine a few minutes and start the process all over again for 1/2 hr, and finally with water to wash the system.(donot want to heat up the descaler too much)

Water button orange light appear even after descaling


I had the same problem too.
Do repeat the descaling with water only. After the descaling the Lattissima shuts down. Just wait some time after shutdown before restarting the Lattissima again. The orange light will be turned off.
Hope this helps you too!

Solis Palazzo Descaling (?) Problem? Please Help!


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.

Solution: Just refill the water tank with water (no descaling solution) all the way to the "Max Line". Then run the full descaling program again --takes approx. 20 minutes. After the program runs completely you will get the yellow "standby" light on and the red "descaling" light will be off.

Next time you descale, be sure and fill your water tank to the "Max Line" before running the descaling program.
Hint: An incomplete cycle (not full tank) is what makes the red light stay on. In other words, it's staying red to tell you to run a full cycle (beginning with the water tank filled to the "Max Line"). Hope this tip is helpful!
