I rinsed coffe maker with decalcify powder, then rinsed coffee make many time with clear, fresh water but the coffee maker still reads, Decalcify/Ready For Use. Although I can make a cup of coffee, the...

I am assuming that you have a digital machine. If so, you have to go into the menu and go to "Reset Descale", push the enter button and choose "Yes" and push the button again. Then you can exit the menu and it should be gone.

On the screen it is written decalcifying.How do I fix this?

This is a pretty sophisticated coffee maker.. the manual goes into great detail about set up for entering water hardness and descaling messages. There is a discussion about the decalcifying procedure, but none the mentions a decalcifying message.

You should re-read the manual and possibly re-enter the programming again. The manual is available for free, here. Pay particular attention to sections 15, 16a, 20c and 22. These sections are only a paragraph long, but will help explain the filters, decalcify procedure and decalcification tablets.

How do i decalcifie my evolution espresso machine? my machine isnt producing any coffee. i have some decalcifier liquid but i'm not sure how to use it

The usual way is to put the solution into the tank at the required strentgh (usually on the packet/bottle) and run it through the machine as if you were making espresso. Once all the solution has gone through run three more tanks of fresh water through to clean it out.

How to decalcify royal digital?

hi my name is Lee Davidian here is your answer
Automatic Decalcifying Cycle
The automatic decalcifying cycle keeps the machine in perfect operating order. When prompted by the user, mineral buildups in the internal boiler can be dissolved and removed with Saeco’s decalcifying solution and a push of a button.

I am having trouble starting the decalcify program, even though the light blinks "ready/decalcify"

Had the same problem, i noticedt that there is a procedure to run decalcify anytime in the instructions book.

Turn off the machine, press Rinse button until it says Empty Tray then go go Step 2 in the instructions.

remove the brew unit and look at the white valve behind it, below that valve there is a small chamber which is probably filled with coffee grounds and water, clean chamber and below chamber is a small discharge hole that leads into the draintray, make sure it is clear.

What does Decalcify mean?

You can download the manual for free. Search for the manual.

If you want to decalcify, then you need to get decalcifying solution. The button with two circles is the decalcify mode. Press that, and the unit will go through it's automatic decalcify. There is a specific procedure to best decalcify superautomatic machines. Please search for that.

After this is done, the decalcify message will not appear. It is on a preset schedule, not an actual measurement of how much scale is in the machine.

Although you don't have to decalcify, it is recommended, especially if you live in an area with hard water.
