Is my New Tassimo vivy broken all ready?

I bought this on Monday and started descaling it as soon as i got home,my mum switched it off in the middle of doing it so i had to start it again.When it was descaling,it was making a very loud pumping noise so i took the water tank out a couple of times to see if that worked,i think it did the job but now the water is just dripping out instead of pouring,im only getting like half a cup. I haven't bought any Tassimo pods yet,just using the yellow thing.Also,i got it from tesco online so i have no receipt.I dint get a email from them,just a text to tell me it's ready to collect.

SOURCE: Tassimo - Can other pods be used?

Hi,
I am not sure if you have a TARGET store near you, but I found some different Tassimo products there this past weekend.

I found that most problems around the tassimo relate to the peircing mechanism being clean and properly in place (it moves sometimes when you open the lid), or that the "window" that reads the barcode needs to be kept clean. When i've gotten all lights blinking or going right to manual, I have found cleaning the window seems to fix the problem more often than not.

hope that helps

SOURCE: the water pump does not appear to be working

The Keurig machine is either clogged with coffee grounds or the air bladder needs to be replaced. Use the key tool under the tray to clean out machine. If this does not work you can have the machine repaird. I hope this works.

For a Braun machine, unfortunately this is quite normal as it's part of the "purge" once it has finished brewing.

The new Bosch machines do not do this and finish their cycle with a steam purge instead.

Hi
It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to properly descale the machine. If it only took a couple of minutes you really didn't descale your machine. If you used the powder it has to disolve completly before descaling. The best way to descale is with the descaler in the tank. Turn on the machine and run about 8 ozs of water-descaler through the wand and then turn off the machine. Wait 10 minutes and repeatthe last procedure. Do this until the tank is empty. When done with the descaler, rinse out the tank and put fresh water in the tank and run the whole tank through the wand. Then fill the tank and your ready to go.

All lights flash at same time-I need a descaling disc- do not have!


I found that my local appliance parts place (Reliable Parts) had them for about $7 each which was quite a bit less than ebay sellers and direct from Tassimo.
(Make sure yours is not hiding in its slot on the back of the machine.)_

I descaled my tassimo brewer, and now the red light wont go off pls advise


Hi, Red light means something needs attention. Descale solution is very corrosive and may have caused damage. I cant think of anything that would do this. Try switching it off and unplugging it for a few minutes. Hopefully resetting it will fix your problem. Dazza REPAIRER

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.

Tassimo red light stays on ran descaling disc twice


After many months, I solved the problem of the red light staying on the Tassimo Coffee Maker. Use these easy steps.
1. Fill a 2 cup measuring cup with hot water.
2. Mix in descaler.
3. Pour in the empty water tank.
4. Put the yellow cleaning disk in the chamber and close chamber. Put the two cup measuring cup under the spout.
5. Push and hold the brew button for about 3 seconds (until the red and green light flash.
6. Now don't touch the machine. It will do it's thing for about 20 minutes. (Don't be impatient and start to push buttons, just leave it)
7. When it finishes it's cycle. The red light will turn off. Then clean the water tank and put fresh water and run clean water through the brewing cycle 4 times. Your machine is now ready for use.

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.
