SOURCE: instructions on descaling a Saeco Vienna Superautomatica

. Remember, it is better to descale more often than not enough.

  1. To decalcify your boiler, remove your water tank and fill it with hot water (100 to 120 degrees). Open a pack of decalcifier and mix into the water tank. Once it is dissolved, place the tank back on the machine, and then turn the machine on.
  2. If you just open the steam knob and run approximately eight ounces of solution into a spare container. Turn the machine off and let set about 10 to 15 minutes. Longer is better. It is very important that the machine does not remain on to heat the boiler anymore than necessary.
  3. Repeat step #2 for your machine. Do this until you have consumed the entire water tank of solution (approximately four to five cycles). (I do it at night before I go to bed and let the last cycle set in the boiler till morning.)
  4. Remove water tank and rinse it with fresh water.
  5. Refill water tank with fresh water and place it back on the machine.
Repeat step #2 to rinse the machine, only this time use the entire water tank at one time, and there is no need to let it set.

Hi
Don't use vinegar. Its only 5% acid at full strength and if you mix it with water a lot less. It also leaves an after taste for about 2 weeks. Use descaling powder or other products especially made for espresso machines.

Purchase the Saeco descaler. Mix solution accordingly. Pour into water tank. Run a cappucino cup full of water through the wand. Wait about 20 minute and repeat. Do this until all the water is gone in the tank. (Don't run all the water at once!). Rinse water tank well. FIll with clean water and run through the wand. I do this twice just to be sure I have gotten all the chemical out.

Saeco Vienna deluxe is slow functioning post power on. 3 to 5 min. for the middle green light remain on. Press brew switch takes a 2-3 min. for the pump 2 activate. Once activated, coffee flows fine.


Machine is screaming for descaling. The Calcium deposits in the system are slowing down heating.
Do not think of using Vinegar.
Do not use R.O water or consider water is very soft in your area. There is nothing like that.

Talea giro plus / Descaling with vinegar


There are a couple of things I am thinking for this:

If the espresso machine is not spraying the hot steam like it should it says in the manual to take apart the steam apparatus and clean with hot water then to run hot water through the device after each use to clean.

Furthermore, have you seen those CLR commercials? I am sure white vinegar would be fine to put through the machine. As far as the ratio is concerned use a low concentrate to start out like 1 to 3 then increase until desired results occur.

I hope this helps!
