It's not something you can fix. Here's the work around. Follow the video using the link below, and it will reset the descale light.

Also when you descale don't fill the water tank to the max lever. Fill it 1/2 way instead. If you do half tanks you will be much more sucessful.

Still having issues send it to the service center.

I have a Braun Sensor model 3092 with two quirks. The machine brews coffee great, but I'm curious about 1) the strange, pitchy hum and 2) the Calc light stays on despite having cleaned it.

Yes I can under stand this you have done descaleing but you have not done descaleing in the proper way very thing has its sequence let take dolce gusto by pressing for few seconds the power button it will blink in green this means that the machine is now indescaleing mode when you're done you simply press the power of in this case you have told the machine that you want to do descaleing and after this the internal computer is reset to normal this is why you machine is still blinking because it had not been reset

Saeco intuita- performed clac/ clean, and now calc/ clean fast flashes. Pressing only goes to slow flash and water dispensor light fast flashes.

Use a paper clip to clean the Needle that penetrates the Kcup. If it still happens call 1-866-901-2739 for direct assistance.

What do you do when it says calc. on the display?

Calc is indicating that it's time to descale the lime build up inside your coffee maker. Most machines are easily cleaned by running a solution of 4 parts water to 1 part vinegar. Run this solution through a regular coffee cycle (no coffee). After running this solution, you may want to run straight water once more to ensure there's no vinegar aftertaste. Your machine will now be clean and the CALC message should disappear. If not, post back with the Model # of your Krups coffee maker for further instructions. Some machines have a Descale or Self Cleaning option built into them.

How to use the calc-clean button

Calc-Clean function
The Calc-Clean function removes scale and impurities.

To do so, set the steam control to position '0', set the temperature dial to 'MAX', and fill water tank up to the 'MAX' level. Then heat up the iron until the pilot light on the handgrip goes out.

Remove the mains plug from the wall socket and hold the iron horizontally over the sink. Then press and hold down the 'CALC CLEAN' button.

Move the iron forwards and backwards while boiling water/steam squirt from the holes in the soleplate to wash away impurities/scales.

When the water tank is empty, heat up the iron to dry it.

Finally move the iron to and fro on a piece of cloth to dry the soleplate. Repeat the process if necessary

Water does not seem to enter machine - no problem with container

1> the 2 non return valves of pump can be damaged and the pup only vibrate and dont pump.(if it is so pump is vibrating at same range it do not goes silent)
2>> it can be filled with calc and water cant get out(in this cases, pump change the voice and goes silent after 30 sec up to 1 minute)
3>>> it could have partialy damaged non return valves, in this case you should open steam valve to let the pump flow the water though her body, after when(if ) you get the water from steam valve close it and prevent emptying of container(prevent geting air in pump) becouse you will have same trouble again.
>>>> if it is solution number 1 or 3 than my advice is change the pump. if it is the 2nd, you should clean the boiler from calc.
