Re: The display reads CALC.

I have a Krups model FME4 and it means that you should descale the machine. Here's a link to the use and care instructions for my model, I assume it would be the same for yours.{EC10140D-AA43-4DCA-8D3A-A5A4823D9E52}&SelectedProdRef=FME4
My problem is that CALC continues to display even after I've descaled several times. Good luck with yours.

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 do you 'Calc Clean'?

Hello shid9
This is an easy fix. To decalcify your unit you need to make a water/vinegar solution. 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. You might need to run two pots of the solution through if the first one is very cloudy. When done with that, rinse with 1 pot of fresh water. This should help remedy your calc problem. I hope this is helpful for you.
Happy brewing! NormanZ
