    what is the substitute of cleaning the machine, the white ball that you put inside the coffee maker?

Machine light for cleaning won't go out

Leave it unplugged for one full hour, then replug it. If it doesn't turn off after that, your problem is most likely electrical, which would require calling Krups for additional service.
