Hi,
That means that you need to clean it...
mix half white vinegar and water together...then pour this solution in just as you would if you were making coffe....minus the coffe grounds of course... then run it through a cycle and then run clear water through again... and you will be good to go...do this once a month or so to keep it working great...

Delonghi EC850 coffe mashine red light are flashing


I have a Delonghi Figaro and the red led flashing means:

The unit has run enough times to likely be scaled, this is a reminder to run weak acid (vinegar or citric acid) through to descale. Then rinse twice with clean water.

Scale will slow the brewing process so if it's brewing slowly you should do this regardless of the LED.

The LED can be reset by pushing <Prog.> and <On.> at the same time.

Of course, none of this is in the manual.

De scale kruig coffe maker


Empty the reservoir of water and fill it with four (4) cups of white vinegar. Run the Keurig WITHOUT a K-Cup until the vinegar has been run through. Rinse out the reservoir with hot water, dry it, then fill with cold water normally used to make coffee. Run the maker 3 times, or until vinegar taste disappears.

Good luck!

Sorry to read about your issue.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

What does de-scale mean?


To de-scale anything in relation to water means to remove the mineral scale buildup on the walls or where ever. That's the usually white chalky stuff that you might see around nozzles etc. Follow yu manuals instructions to de-scale. Usually involving white vinegar, or possibly a product like CLR for removing minerals and rust stains. I AM NOT SAYING TO USE CLR IN YOUR MACHINE, just indicating an example of a product that manages mineral scale. Read the manual to do it correctly.

Have a Gaggia Cyncrony Compact Coffe Machine that doesn't brew!


Has the machine been de-scaled recently? I would run a descaling solution through the machine first to eliminate that.
