Descaling on this machine has to be done manually.

Purchase some descaling packets, fill the water resevoir full and then place a packet in there and stir. The water will usually turn blue at this point.

Next turn the steam wand so that it releases water. Place a large container under the want and let the water release until you see the solution start to come out.

Turn off the system, and wait 10 minutes. Turn the system back on, and release another 2-3 ounces of water and solution from the wand.

Repeat this above til the solution has gone threw the system.

Finally fill the water resevoir twice full with water and turn the steam wand out to let the water come out. Empty 2 resevoirs worth of water to flush your system of the rest of the descaling solution.

Make 2 espresso's and toss them.


Process should be done every 2 to 3 months as recommended by saeco.

    Use the manual at this site, to get into the menu is a little different, because you have to use the lights, instead of a display, the manual is under the files section.

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.

Why after descaling my new Seaco Syntia coffee machine, it stops while brewing and it requires being primed over and over.


Syntia and Brera machines are made by Saeco. Brera is marketed under the brand name Gaggia (owned by Saeco).
The causes for this malfunction can be due to following in order as stated:
1- The machine was not descaled or it was descaled using products. that are labeled as descaler but they are not. After extended period of not descaling, one may have to use more than one cycle of descaling to remove accumulated depsits of Calcium in the water system.
2- The grind setting of coffee is too fine. Make it coarser by one notch toward coarser setting at a time.
3- The pump is losing its pumping pressure and not pudhing water through the coffee. Replace ULKA pump with an Invensys pump model CP3.
All fully automatic machines are convenient and make classic shots of espresso from bean to the cup at the push of a button. With this simplicity, owners forget its maintenance until machine stops working. Please pay attention to descaling every three months. No excuse is good enough.

The machine says to descale _ How do I do that???!!


THIS INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR THE MIELE CVA 615,

The coffee system must be descaled regularly. The time period depends on
the water hardness set. The appliance will display a reminder message and
will eventually lock if not descaled. The message window will first display:
"DESCALE AFTER COFFEES: 100".
This message will appear until the appliance is descaled or locks. When
the count is down to zero, the appliance will lock and the message
window displays: The appliance can only be used again
once descaling has been performed. Let the machine cool before
descaling. Remove the sleeve of the steam nozzle to avoid damage from
the descaling agent. Only use the enclosed descaling tablets for descaling.
The descaling tablets are specially designed for descaling this coffee
system. Other agents may damage the machine and affect the taste of
the coffee and hot water. The descaling tablets can be purchased
from Miele.
To prevent damage to the exterior of the machine wipe up any descaling
solution spills immediately! Add 2 liters of water to the water tank. Dissolve two of the enclosed
descaling tablets in the water.
^ Close the water tank and insert into position.
^ Close the door. The descaling will take place in the
automatic descaling program.
Automatic descaling
^ Turn the program selector
counterclockwise to the "Program
mode" position.Press e, to select "Descaling" with the asterisk. Press ENTER.

Water button orange light appear even after descaling


I had the same problem too.
Do repeat the descaling with water only. After the descaling the Lattissima shuts down. Just wait some time after shutdown before restarting the Lattissima again. The orange light will be turned off.
Hope this helps you too!

Decalcify?


I had the same problem with a Saeco Royal Digital. I ran the decalcifying liquid through the machine with the automatic descaling program as per the instructions on the bottle and the DECALCIFY message stayed up.
I solved it by going to the menu and selecting "Signal Descal." and toggling it from No to Yes. I escaped back to the menu and git the usual "Select Product".
Hope this helps.
