The machine will not pump water to make cup of coffee. Cleaned needle area, powered on and off, nothing. The descale light has never come on in 3 years we have had machine. Can't even attempt to descale...


Step 1: Lift up the water reservoir and drop it back into place. There is a magnet that has to be in the right position and putting the reservoir back into place causes it to go back where it should be. This method has worked for me.
Step 3: It could be that your Keurig's water line is clogged. To flush out debris, run water through your brewer a few times without a K-Cup. I'd recommend this step if your Keurig is brewing some coffee, just not a full cup.
Step 4: Try turning the power on and off or try unplugging (for a long stretch if you can). When you turn the Keurig back on, be sure to give it plenty of warm-up time. This has also worked for me.
Step 5: It may be time to descale. Most models will give you a message when it's time to have the mineral deposits cleaned. Go here for instructions
Step 6: Turn off your brewer and use an unfolded paperclip to clean out the holes in the top needle.
Step 7: If you've given your Keurig a good spanking and it still won't behave, contact Keurig (866-901-BREW) for help.

The descale light keeps blinking, what should I do?


The 'Descale' light that turns on indicates that it is time to de-scale the machine.
Scale - or mineral deposits- form from the water you run through your Keurig coffee machine. If not cleaned regularly, the buildup can clog the lines in your machine and ruin the heating element. The manufacturer recommends you descale Keurig coffee makers once every six months for normal water conditions and once every three months if you live in an area with hard water.
You will need :
  • Keurig coffee maker
  • 48 oz. white distilled vinegar
  • Water
  • Large ceramic cup
  • Sink


Instructions :
  • 1 Unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.
  • 2 Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.
  • 3 Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.
  • 4 Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.
  • 5 Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.
  • Good luck ;)

    What does it mean to descale my tassimo? the yellow light is on and the screen keeps saying "descale". thanks


    In order to keep your Tassimo machine operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three months. Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to descale your Tassimo machine is intended for this specific use only. Mix the descaling product directly in the water container, following the instructions provided on the descaling packaging. Then replace the water container on the machine. Place a large cup or mug on the cup stand, insert the cleaning disc, bar code down and close the brew mechanism. As soon as the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop button. This will fill the brew cycle with descaling solution. Empty the cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes. Then open the brew mechanism and close it again, leaving the cleaning disc in place. Repeat this step two more times for maximum descaling effectiveness.

    Discard the remaining descaling agent from the water container, rinse it well and refill with fresh, cold water. Clean the machine by flushing water through it in the same manner and emptying the cup as it fills. Make sure that all the descaling solution has been completely rinsed away, and then flush two full water containers through the machine before using it again. Remove the cleaning disc, rinse and refill the water container and your Tassimo machine is ready to use. Also, before you descale your Tassimo machine, always unplug it. Also, never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Tassimo machine. This method works for most espresso machines, including some of these popular models: the DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3200S, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400, Gaggia 74507BCN Classic, Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6600, the BC0255 DeLonghi coffee machine and the Krups Nespresso CititZ XN 7006.

    How to clean the kitchenaid java express coffee maker


    The Coffee Maker can be descaled using
    a packaged descaling agent or vinegar.
    Always mix the descaling solution using
    cool water.
    • When using a descaling agent, follow
    the directions on the package for the
    recommended amounts of descaling
    agent and water to use.
    • When using vinegar, fill the carafe with
    a solution consisting of 1⁄2 vinegar and
    1⁄2 water.
    Descaling Steps:
    1. Before descaling, always remove the
    water filter (see “Installing the Ion-
    Exchange Water Filter” on page 7) and
    make sure the brew basket contains
    no coffee or coffee filters.
    2. Run the Coffee Maker through a
    complete brewing cycle using a full
    carafe of the descaling solution.
    3. If the cleaning needed indicator lights
    after the brewing cycle is complete,
    repeat Step 2 using fresh descaling
    solution. Keep repeating Step 2 until
    the cleaning needed indicator no
    longer lights after brewing.
    4. Rinse the Coffee Maker by running
    it through two brewing cycles using a
    full carafe of fresh, cool water
    each time.
    5. Wash the brew basket in hot, soapy
    water and rinse with hot water. This
    part can also be washed in the upper
    rack of the dishwasher.
    6. Reinstall or replace the water filter.
    Replace the filter every three months
    under normal usage, or more often
    with heavy use.

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

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

    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.

    No steam and ventilate


    Hi,

    When you try to get out water, can you get a full cup of water or just a half cup?

    How often do you descale your machine?

    Saeco Incanto -- no coffee coming out


    After I posted this I decided to descale the machine again, even though I'd just done it a couple of weeks ago. After descaling and rinsing I tried running water through the brew group by pressing the pre-ground button, then holding down the big cup button. Still no water, but then I turned the little knob on the coffee dispenser counterclockwise, about half a turn. It worked! I rinsed it well, then made a cup of delicious espresso.
