I have an bosch sensixx b5 iron and the calc clean sign keeps flashing what can i do .i have lost theinstuctions
Here you have how to solve this issue. It has been obtained from the device's manual.
2. calc'n clean
The "calc'n clean" function helps to remove scale particles
from the steam dispenser. The iron includes a system to
warn when the dispenser needs periodically cleaning. When
the "calc 'n clean" symbol lights up on the navigation display

After the necessary warm-up period, unplug the iron and
hold it over a sink.

removing any scale or deposits that might be there.
When the iron stops dripping, position the regulator to
For improved descaling, heat up the iron again fully and
press the steam button several times in quick succession.
Then wait until the remaining water has evaporated from
the soleplate of the iron.
Once it has been cleaned, the cleaning warning must be
cancelled on the navigation display. To do this, simply press
and hold the on/set navigation key for more than 5 seconds,
with the iron plugged in. If you do not do this, the cleaning
icon will remain lit.
The "anti-calc" cartridge has been designed to reduce the
build-up of scale produced during steam ironing, helping
to extend the useful life of your iron. Nevertheless the
"anti-calc" cartridge cannot remove all of the scale that is
produced naturally over time.
