Question about Braun Tassimo Espresso Machine/Coffee Maker
No, you can not use vinegar. It will dissolve scale into chunks and block the water heating circuit.

Vinegar is fine,use a cup then run 3 more cycles thru with water.

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!

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.

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.
