I have found it was due to my not using enough de-scaler. Try using about 50% more than recommended.

GAGGIA Brera RI9833/61 - Descaling light still on after descaling


I think that you button doesn't make a good contact. Try to press it with different pressure and on different sides slightly off center to give this a try - it may be just a bad contact that is enough to change the bean setting but not enough to reset the warning indicator through a long press. Let me know how it goes ... they may have changed the button that needs to be pressed as well (does your manual say anything different?)

Giaggia Brera descaling problem


Hi,
been talking to Gaggia (Philips) and they told me that with the newer Breras, you need to ill the water tank, put the machine into standby, then press the long and short cup buttons together for 6 seconds. This will start an auto descale programme (that they didn't mention in my manual!). A small amount of water will be dispensed through the coffee nozzles, then it will stop and the warning triangle and the prime warning light will come on. Place a large container under the panarello, then turn the knob to the right to dispense water. It will dispense about 50 - 100 mls (cold) water, then stop for about a minute. Just leave it and eventually it will empty the tank. Refill it and start again, but it will stop after a few seconds. Turn the knob back to central position, then it will dispense another small amount of water from the coffee nozzles, then stop with warning lights again. Turn the knob back right to dispense water, if it stops because of empty tank, just refill it. Eventually, the machine will stop and go to standby. Turn the knob back to the centre, refill tank yet again and the machine will start normally WITHOUT that descale warning light. HOORAY !!

Saeco Talea Giro Plus, descaling following instructions step by step. In step 12 the descaling light did not turn off. The warning light came on as indicated. In step 15, pressing the descaling button...


Try doing another rinse cycle until water tank empties. I had to do that a couple of times, then the red exclamation mark came on. Then I turned knob to off position, refilled water tank, pressed the descale button for 6 seconds, green light came back on and it did its priming.

The red light is staying on, what do i need to do?


The light stays on if you do not follow the instructions when descaling. You must hold the button for 3 seconds to descale. It takes about 20 minutes. If you press the button for less than 3 seconds with the service disc you just run the water through quickly to rinse/clean and the machine doesn't reset the rescale light.

How do you descale my Delonghi Magnifica?


10.3 DESCALING Due to the continuous heating of the water used to make the coffee, over time it is normal for the tubing inside the machine to fill with lime scale. When the light starts flashing (section 12 - point 5), it is time to descale the machine. NOTE: when the light switches on, the coffee maker can still be used to prepare coffee. Proceed as follows: • Empty the tank and pour in the contents of one bottle (125 ml) of DURGOL descaler plus one liter of water. For subsequent descaling operations, descaling solution can be purchased from authorized technical service centers. Note: Make sure splashes of descaler do not fall onto surfaces sensitive to acid such as marble, limestone and granite. • place a container with a minimum capacity of 34 oz. under the cappuccino frother (Fig. 3); • turn the machine on by pressing the button (Fig. 4). • wait for the green and indicator lights to come on steady. • press and hold the button for at least 5 seconds (Fig.14). The decalcification warning light will illuminate (section 11 - point 8) to indicated the start of the descaling program (the and lights remain off to indicate that it is not possible to make coffee). • turn the steam knob half a turn counter-clockwise (Fig.5). The descaling solution will come out of the cappuccino frother and start to fill the container underneath. • the descaling program automatically performs a series of deliveries and pauses, so as to remove the lime scale deposits from inside the coffee maker. Fig.32 The two red buttons have snapped out CORRECTLY The two red buttons have not snapped out CORRECT INCORRECT 17 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS • after around 30 minutes, when the light comes on (section 12 - point 1), turn the steam knob half a turn clockwise (Fig.6) until it stops. The machine must be rinsed so as to eliminate the residues of descaling solution from inside the machine. Proceed as follows: • remove the water tank, rinse it and fill it with clean water. • reposition the tank. • empty the collection container (located under the milk frother) that is full of liquid, and then replace it under the milk frother. • turn the steam knob half a turn counter-clockwise (Fig. 5). Hot water will come out of the milk frother and fill the container underneath. • when the tank is empty, the l ight goes off and the light comes on (section 12 - point 1). • turn the steam knob all the way clockwise (Fig. 6) and fill the water tank with clean water again. • the program of descaling is now terminated and the machine is ready to make coffee again. NOTE: if the descaling procedure is interrupted before completion, the alarm (section 12 - point 5) is not deactivated and the procedure must be started again form the beginning.

I have descaled my Saeco Odea and the coffee beans light and the descaling light keep on flashing from one to the other


Hi, Try holding down the steam button for 10 seconds. It should reset the descale warning lamp.
Hope it helps.

I have completed several descaling cycles on my talea machine, but the light will not go off. Help?


Check the manual there is a button that disables the warning after the descale has been done, on the Odea it is holding the hot water button for six seconds.

Descaling warning


Try pressing the ESC button.
If that does not work, go to the menu (press M), use the up and down arrows until you go to Descaling. There should be a function in the menu to turn off the warning. While in that screen, try the ESC button.

Trouble Lights Stay On


How long does it take for your machine to grind for 1 cup? Longer then 10 seconds? Grinder setting?

 

Descaling should be done every 2-3 regardless if the light comes on or not. To reset the light hold the steam button until the light goes off.

 

Descaling information can be found at http://www.cerinicoffee.com/clean_descale_coffee_equipment_instructions.asp

 

Hope this helps!
