SOURCE: After performing a descaling cycle, the descaling light still flashes, what is wrong?

The manual states that after you descale, you have to hold down the hot water button for 6 seconds, that will turn it off and "reset the timer" till the next time it needs to descale.

SOURCE: Keurig starts & stops without brewing coffee, just descaled

The pic is clogged with coffee or the air bladder is bad. Use the tool on the underside of the tray to clean out pic. If that doesn't work, the bladder will be bad.

SOURCE: I have descaled my Saeco Odea and the coffee beans

Hi, Try holding down the steam button for 10 seconds. It should reset the descale warning lamp.
Hope it helps.

SOURCE: I can't get a full cup of coffee. I've descaled

If your brewer is not brewing the full amount selected, it may be caused by the following:

  • The exit needle is clogged by coffee grounds or cocoa mix. Please refer to the K-Cup Holder cleaning instructions.
  • The brewer may need to be de-scaled. Please refer to the de-scaling instructions.
  • The removable water reservoir was removed during brewing. Place the water reservoir back onto the brewer and perform a cleansing brew without a K-Cup.

Red triangle will not stop flashing even after I descale

I have the Illy coffee maschine x7.1 and I'm trying to do the descaling (since the litle triangle sign is flashing), but power button doesn't start flashing after I push the coffee and steam button together (as indicated in the manual). Any suggestions what I should do, that the on/off button would start flashing?

The 7d(fill tank light) & 7e(descale light) are flashing simultaneously, what to do?

According to the manual, when both lights 7d and 7e are on at the same time, you need to contact Tassimo.

The descale light keeps blinking, what should I do?

The 'Descale' light that turns on indicates that it is time to de-scale the machine.
Scale - or mineral deposits- form from the water you run through your Keurig coffee machine. If not cleaned regularly, the buildup can clog the lines in your machine and ruin the heating element. The manufacturer recommends you descale Keurig coffee makers once every six months for normal water conditions and once every three months if you live in an area with hard water.
You will need :
  • Keurig coffee maker
  • 48 oz. white distilled vinegar
  • Water
  • Large ceramic cup
  • Sink

Instructions :
  • 1 Unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.
  • 2 Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.
  • 3 Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.
  • 4 Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.
  • 5 Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.
  • Good luck ;)

    After descaling the two coffe cup lights keep flashing .

    You have finished the descale process and your descale light should be gone. Put a fresh tank of water on the machine and then open the steam knob. This should clear the water light and your machine will start heating again.

    Red descale light is on

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

    Descaling 11
    Descale your Tassimo machine every three months to keep it
    operating at full potential.
    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.
