Question about Krups Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
I've owned this machine for several months (not a heavy user, 2-3 pots on weekends) and I've used it more in the descaling process, because the CALC indicator is on, than I have for making coffee. Most recently, I ran the descaling agent through according to the manual, then rinsed with 3 pots of clean distilled water and after the first pot of coffee I made (with distilled water) the CALC indicator is back on.
take a descaler solution never mind vinegar not strong enought 1part solution 1part water put that in our water container start the machine open valve let it drip for a few second untill you see the solution leave it like that for 10 minute after open the valve and do it again untill emty after you emty the solution clean water container very good fill it with water open the valve rinse very good because that solution is very corosif enjoy cheers

Loosen the charcoal filter. You only need to GENTLY place it in. Your problems will all be solved. I just did it 5 minutes ago and i just brewed a 6 cup pot of coffee completely.

It may not help but won't hurt; put a couple of cups of plain vinegar into the water chamber, turn on briefly until it starts to pump, then turn off and leave overnight - at least, if not longer. The mild acid content may clear some lime buildup.
