Both lights on my older model machine won't stop flashing


Try holding both buttons down while you turn on the machine - hold down till they stop flashing, usually 2 - 5 seconds. This resets the machine to its original factory settings.

De-scale light came on. What do we do???


Sorry to read about your issue.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

There used to be enough steam to froth milk for 2 cups of coffee, now I have to turn the knob off, to let the machine build up steam 3 times too get enough froth for 1 cup of coffee.


This a
clear problem from scale builds up in the boiler. The scale layer is acting as
an insulation layer which is reducing the efficiency of the heating element to
the boiler and also reducing the water capacity thus also the steam production
capacity.



So you
should first try to de-scale your machine three four times with intervals of
three days from each de-scale. Try also to perform the de-scale very slowly
like when you will flash the water solution from the water reservoir take about
30 minutes why drawing a coffee cup every five minutes. With this way you have
very good chance to remove a lot of scale and you machine heating efficiency to
be increased. If after the above procedure you have no difference then you need
a new boiler which is one unit with elements and sensor.



Here below we
have a link with more information for your machine which can help you.

We only use filtered water in our machine and were wondering if we still have to de-scale it as often as it requests. We have been told that it works on a certain amount of coffees and then requests a...


Hi
Yes you should descale on a regular basis. All water except distilled and RO water have some minerals in it, just some waters have more than you want. Distilled and RO water has their draw backs like the are on the acid side and can disolve the metal parts of your boiler. They don't taste as good as most water. Water that taste sweet has calcium that needs to be removed, this is why we descale on a regular basis. You can set you machine to tell you when you need to descale and it will also descale for you, so you don't have to stand in front of it while it does so. I prefer to set my water hardness to the max.(4) all lights lite on a Palazzo to prevent what I have seen where a Palazzo was so plugged with scale no water would go through it. These are great machines if you take a little care. Descaling is all I do to mine. I lubed my brew group when I first got it. and just rinse it twice a year.

Water line on intermittent flash after trying to clear the steam


I was able to fix the problem after reading your post.

I had lost my manual and found a copy of the instruction manual online. http://www.espressoitalia.com.au/viewStory/Coffee%20Machine%20Manuals

I read the instructions for de-scaling (page 15) and followed it EXACTLY the way it instructed me to.

The entire process took roughly 2.5-3 hours. I set an alarm to remind me to re-dispense the solution again (for 15 seconds) every 10 minutes.

I'm not sure if you skipped a few steps(I did the first time I went through it). If anything, the trick might be to hold the hot water button for 6 seconds to disable the de-scaling alarm.

Your de-scaling alarm probably hasn't been de-activated. ( To make sure I held the hot water button for about 15 seconds)
