Hello shid9
This is an easy fix. To decalcify your unit you need to make a water/vinegar solution. 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. You might need to run two pots of the solution through if the first one is very cloudy. When done with that, rinse with 1 pot of fresh water. This should help remedy your calc problem. I hope this is helpful for you.
Happy brewing! NormanZ

The vinegar solution is specifically not recommended by Philips as it might damage the aerator that creates the steam. Page 13 has the descaling instructions.


A powder of pure citric acid is what they call for, and googling "citric acid powder" gives you many inexpensive places to order it online.

Tip

Hard water Calcium white powder build up in dishwasher


Calcium and magnesium is present in a great number of homes today regardless of hardness or softness of the water. Water containing dissolved carbonates of calcium and magnesium can lower the effectiveness of the detergents you use and leave deposits on the dishware and tub of the dishwasher. When these deposits dry they become what some call lime scale.

To remove these deposits there are a number of cleaners on the market today. I will list them in the order of my preference. You can find them near the dishwasher detergents. If you use them read the instructions on the label, but basically you can run a cycle with no dishes and the cleaner. Some of the cleaners like Lemi-Shine can be used with a full load of dishware after you clean the tub. This helps keep the tub clean and deposits off the dishes. If you want a home remedy that seems to work pretty good, put a cereal size bowl upright in the lower rack (no other dishes in the dishwasher) fill the bowl with vinegar and run a normal cycle. The vinegar will wash out and clean some of the deposits away. If residue is still around run a second cycle of the vinegar wash.

- Lemi-Shine
- Finish Dishwasher Cleaner
- Glisten
- Glass Magic

Here are some links to other dishwasher tips I have put together.

I cleaned my Jura Capresso with a tablet, but the message "Clean Machine/Ready" won't switch back to "Ready". Any suggestions?


Fortunately the problem you describe is not model specific. All Jura machines in the series C, E, F, J, S & Z models have the same problem. The Jura recommended maintenance is insufficient or erroneous. Here is how it occurs:
1- When new machine is set up, the instructions advice the owner to set up OK for use of Filter cartridges. This set helps only to display reminders for replacing the filter.
2- The initial set up instruction also advises that with regular use of Filter, descaling the machine will not be needed. That is really not accurate. Consequently, the reminders for descaling are delayed for over one year or more. This causes serious consequence with accumulation of Calcium deposits in the entire hydraulic and coffee system.
3- Use of Filters alone does not prevent Calcium deposits. Cleaning tables recommended & sold by Jura do not remove Calcium deposits in the coffee/water passages. The automatic descaling method recommended by Jura leaves the coffee side of the machine unclean. The error message in your machine is due to Calcium deposits in the Brew group, coffee outlet & the faucet dispensing coffee in the cup. I suggest all Jura machine owners should manually descale machine. Manually descaling includes use of 6 to 10 rinse cycles with descaling solution in the water tank. The error message "Clean Machine" is accurate. This error message is pointing to descale the Brew group, coffee outlet tube and coffee dispensing faucet by using rinse cycles.

After the rinse cycles are complete, refill Descaling solution in the water tank & continue descaling the rest of the machine by using hot water dispensing function, ½ cup at a time until the tank is empty. Finally, give a final flushing of machine to flush out remaining descaling solution inside the machine.

My mr coffee expresso mac the frother is not working good. how do i un clog it i keep it clean i do not know what to do.


Hello

It is best for your device to use distilled or at least once boiled water. If you do so you will avoid filling with calcium and the life of your machine will be longer.

Anti calc powders for small machines exists, if you already have calcium in it you should clean it. After that you will keep it clean using once boiled and then cooled water.

I pour water in my Bunn VPR coffee maker and it does not come out of the sprayer.


you need to take it apart and clean it out. hard water is horrible on these machines. once every three to four months we clean ours. take the top off and you will see all the calcium deposits. need to clean it out. you can use CLR, just make sure you run the hell out of it before serving. you may need to let it sit over night once you get the majority of it out. after that you can run "brew-right" through it. just follow directions

How do I clean the calc from my tefal express generator iron. I have the equipment but not instructions. liz


You can use a product such as CLR (stands for Calcium, Lime & Rust) (can be found at Target, Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, etc.) in order to remove calcium from your iron. To prevent calcium from appearing on/in your iron in the first place, use distilled water in your iron instead of tap water. I buy bottles of distilled water for ironing only and calcium never appears on my irons.
