Question about Thermador BICM24CS Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker

1 Answer

My thermador built-in coffeemaker descale light never goes on. I've been told by a thermador repairman that I should run the descale cycle anyway, but I don't know how to do that if the light doesn't go on first.

Machine says CALCIF What does it mean?


CALCIF usually indicates "calcification" which is a buildup of calcium and other minerals. I don't believe you would normally see this indication on a microwave oven. Coffeemakers often indicate mineral buildup by indicating "DESCALE" or similar.

Descaling or removing mineral deposits in a coffeemaker usually requires running the coffeemaker with white vinegar instead of water, and no coffee ground or filter. Three or four "brewings" is usually all that is needed to remove the deposits. Simply run several more brewing cycles of clean water to rinse all the internal components of any vinegar and the job is complete.

If this answer isn't applicable - please tell me model number of the appliance that is displaying the CALCIF message, otherwise, please rate my reply "4 thumbs up" if it was helpful Thanks!

My descaling light wont go off


You have to make sure you run the full descaling cycle. WIth my T90 I have to push the button for 3 sec to get the secalling program and it has to run until the reservoir runs out before the descale light goes out.

Red de scaling light won't shut off


Removing the red descaling light is simple.
1. Fill reservoir with half vinegar and half water (no need for the special descaling product from Tassimo).
2. Turn on machine.
3. Insert yellow cleaning disc found in back of machine.
4. This is where most people have the their problem...You must hold the start button for 3 to 5 seconds for the descaling program to start. Both green and red light will flash.
5. Once started, use a large cup to catch the output of water.
6. The machine will cycle through the descaling program in about 30 to 45 minutes. Be paitent!!!
7. Once completed, run many cups of plain water through the system to remove the vinegar taste.
8. Red light problem is solved.

Hope this works for you.

Red descale light is on


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

Descaling
Descaling 11
Descale your Tassimo machine every three months to keep it
operating at full potential.
1
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.

How do I properly clean the coffee maker and then get the light to go off?


Hi,

  1. Allow the unit to cool completely and unplug it before cleaning. use a sponge dampened with soapy water to clean the outside of the coffeemaker, then dry carefully.
  2. Open the reservoir cover and the filter compartment. Remove the coffee grinder lid, the grinder, the filter basket, its cover and the support.
  3. Wash the pieces along with the measure, the carafe and its lid in warm, soapy water, rinse thoroghly and dry. Then replace them in the unit.
  4. All these pieces are also dishwasher safe.
  5. Never pour water inte the unit when the grinder is not in place.
  6. Wipe the part under the filter basket and the heater plate with a damp cloth.
  7. Do not wipe the inside of the reservoir as this may leave fabric or paper residue.
  8. Do not use abrasive sponges or cleaning agents as these could damage the finish.
  9. NEVER IMMERSE THE BASE OF THE UNIT IN WATER OR ANY OTHER LIQUID.
The reservoir cover may also be removed to facilitate cleaning.

Descaling.
Over time and through normal use, lime deposits will build up.
Scale can interfere with the fine mechanics and give the coffee a harsh, bitter taste. For reason, your coffeemaker should be descaled regularly to guarantee good coffee. The frequency of descaling depends on how hard the water is and how frequently you use the coffeemaker.
  • To descale, dilute 30cl white vinegar in 30cl water, pour the mixture into the reservoir and begin a brew cycle.
  • Then run two full cycles by filling the reservoir with water (but no coffee) to rinse the system.
Hope this will help you.
