I cleaned my Jura Capresso with a tablet, but the message "Clean Machine/Ready" won't switch back to "Ready". Any suggestions?


Fortunately the problem you describe is not model specific. All Jura machines in the series C, E, F, J, S & Z models have the same problem. The Jura recommended maintenance is insufficient or erroneous. Here is how it occurs:
1- When new machine is set up, the instructions advice the owner to set up OK for use of Filter cartridges. This set helps only to display reminders for replacing the filter.
2- The initial set up instruction also advises that with regular use of Filter, descaling the machine will not be needed. That is really not accurate. Consequently, the reminders for descaling are delayed for over one year or more. This causes serious consequence with accumulation of Calcium deposits in the entire hydraulic and coffee system.
3- Use of Filters alone does not prevent Calcium deposits. Cleaning tables recommended & sold by Jura do not remove Calcium deposits in the coffee/water passages. The automatic descaling method recommended by Jura leaves the coffee side of the machine unclean. The error message in your machine is due to Calcium deposits in the Brew group, coffee outlet & the faucet dispensing coffee in the cup. I suggest all Jura machine owners should manually descale machine. Manually descaling includes use of 6 to 10 rinse cycles with descaling solution in the water tank. The error message "Clean Machine" is accurate. This error message is pointing to descale the Brew group, coffee outlet tube and coffee dispensing faucet by using rinse cycles.

After the rinse cycles are complete, refill Descaling solution in the water tank & continue descaling the rest of the machine by using hot water dispensing function, ½ cup at a time until the tank is empty. Finally, give a final flushing of machine to flush out remaining descaling solution inside the machine.

Fault on Siemens TK76K573, after pump replacement


The water passages in the espresso makes may be clogged. Please descale the machine. Depending on the period for which the descaling was not done, it may need nore than one descaling cycle to remove accumulated Calcium deposits.
Calcium deposits narrow water passages and reduce the pump pressure to push water through the coffee grounds.

Clean a blocked line with calcium deposits, how do you do it?


I used a vinegar solution to clean the deposits. Usually you get a failure of the flow sensor but in those cases you will get flow for a 3-5 seconds and then it will stop.

Our Senseo Coffeemaker switches off half way through running a coffee.


You have to clean the unit. It must have calcium deposits, preventing it to heat the water properly. The unit overheats and the thermostat shuts it down.

Hot water comes to slow


It sounds like your water line may be clogged. Buy some descaler powder and follow the instructions on the package to clean away calcium deposits from inside your coffee maker's water lines.

I pour water in my Bunn VPR coffee maker and it does not come out of the sprayer.


you need to take it apart and clean it out. hard water is horrible on these machines. once every three to four months we clean ours. take the top off and you will see all the calcium deposits. need to clean it out. you can use CLR, just make sure you run the hell out of it before serving. you may need to let it sit over night once you get the majority of it out. after that you can run "brew-right" through it. just follow directions
