Hi
Starbucks used to carry a descaling product for their machines. Yes don't use vinegar because it is only 5% before you dilute it. It also leaves a taste for about 2 weeks that will affect the taste of your coffee. You can use Citric acid. 1 tablespoon per 32 oz of water. Use at least 2 table spoons. Dissolve the descaling solution so there are no crystals left. Now.
Turn the machine off and then push and hold the 2 buttons at the same time. While holding them down, turn the machine on.
Release the buttons and turn the dial counter clockwise till it stops.
This will keep the machine from heating.
If you push the steam button the pump will activate.
Open the steam knob. Run 8 oz through the wand and rekease the button. Let it set for 10 minutes, then open the knob again. Repeat until the tank is empty. Rinse with a whole tank of fresh water and your done.
If you have the Digital there is a program in the menu for descaling. There is also a program for resetting the descal mode so it will tell you the next time it need to be done. Chose yes and push the enter button. Also change your water hardness to 4. Descale more often than not enough.

If we plug in the Solis Coffeemaker, the electrical circuit trips. What happened? It is a 5000 Espressep Machine. We always treated it with care.


Hi
I would suspect the boiler is leaking and shorting. Common problem when you don't descale on a regular basis or descale incorrectly. Any high temperatures during descaling will turn the gasket hard and brittle causing the leak. If not done enough the scale builds up and expands the boiler causing the leak.

Display says 'DECALCIFY'...I don't hvae the solution they recommend...what can I use to descale?


You should really use the solution that is recommended for the machine as damage could be caused to seals etc if you don't. The only other thing I have seen used is normal white vinegar but it takes a lot longer to work.

Try descaling your machine, because it may be clogged. Boilers heat up the water to produce steam. If descaling doesnt work you may have a boiler related problem.

Find descaler on www.CeriniCoffee.com
