No, you can not use vinegar. It will dissolve scale into chunks and block the water heating circuit.

On a bosch machine this will also damage the aluminium in the water heater block.

Use only a Citric Acid based descaling solution - avoid any products that use Acetic acid (vinegar).

Also, make sure you remove your water filter before attempting to descale!

SOURCE: descaling

I had this happen once and had to put it through the descale process again. Just put more water in the tank, try it again and see what happens.

SOURCE: Saeco Odea Giro descaling problem

Ok first check if the machine is in greenlight state when you press and hold the water button, as it will not work when the red exclamation mark blinking.

also check if the button work at all flipping back and forth to hot water and steam.
I have never had this problem that it dident work.
But remember this, you dont have to do the descaling again as that has nothing to do with the reset.
You can even reset the descaling alarm with out having done the descaling.

If that for some reason wouldent work I would think its the CPU card is not working.

SOURCE: After performing a descaling cycle, the descaling light still flashes, what is wrong?

The manual states that after you descale, you have to hold down the hot water button for 6 seconds, that will turn it off and "reset the timer" till the next time it needs to descale.

SOURCE: For Tassimo - Ican't find

I just spoke to Customer Service at Tassimo and they informed me that any descaler can be used as long as it does NOT have vinegar. It can be a liquid or powder and just follow the instructions on the packaging. Hope this works for you.

How to descale keurig elite 40 coffee maker with vinigar


Unfortunately you will need to use vinegar. The acetic acid in vinegar is strong enough to clean most brewing machines.

Use distilled white vinegar.

Can you descale a coffee machine with white vinegor ?


Yes. A 20% solution of white vinegar will descale any coffee maker. I prefer to run straight water for 1 cycle after this process to ensure no vinegar aftertaste remain. I've been using white vinegar to descale my coffee makers for years and it works great.

How to descale


Use 1/2 cup white vinegar in 1 quart water. No need to let it sit. After descaling, remember to run at least 3 cycles with clean water to remove any vinegar.

Not enough water making it from holding tank to dispensing cup


your machine is "Short Cupping"

It needs to be descaled. Even though the descale light might not be on yet, the descale light only comes on when it is in SERIOUS need of a descaling. You should descale once every 3 months.

Fill reservoir with distilled white vinegar and leave the machine on for 4 hours (make sure to turn off the auto off option).

after 4 hours, run the vinegar through the machine until the reservoir is empty. Refill with water and repeat twice. you will notice a difference right when you start running vinegar through.
