Run vinegar thru it... go buy a gallon of it... and run a couple cups thru it...
then use filtered water or distilled water to flush that vinegar out...

then go buy yourself a Brita Pitcher... and use that... cheaper then using distilled water...

    The downside of using vinegar is the awful smell . . It's better to use citric acid, which gives no bad odour, is less corrosive and doesn't negatively affect the taste.

    Do NOT use Vinegar! It could potential harm or break your Senseo. The manual clearly states to use citric acid. My mom used vinegar in mine and it brew about a tablespoon of coffee now. I would not advise it...

Senseo is not putting out the water


There is a possibility it just needs more water or it could be 'furred up' because it has not been purged or descaled for a long time. Fill up with water and place a large jug '500ml min' under and press both the single and two cup buttons at the same time. Refer to the user manual for the type of descaler to use.

Not enough water coming out of senseo coffee maker


You may need to descale your machine. It is always worth noting that if you put a mug under the machine, it will only half fill it on the one cup setting.

My de longie coffee has been descaled only once in over 12 months when the descale light come on .. It has not come on since and I am sure it should be descaled now . How can I start a manual descale ?


Depends on how many times you have used it, before descale light comes on. Might not be able to manual descale, read instructions. You can buy Descaler Solution from all Supermarkets, but if unit working OK, leave it for a few Months, and see what happens..

Descaled and rinsed the machine. now it is stuck in the rinsing mode. how do we get out of this cycle?


If you are rinsing after doing the descale it has to run out of water. The pump will quit and the rinse should be gone. The you have to go into the menu and select "reset descale" and chose "YES" and then "enter", then you can exit. It will tell you when it needs to be descaled again. Make sure that your water hardness is set to "4".

Coffee tastes very acidic


Hi kdimof,
I realize you posted this problem over a year ago, but I was curious to see if you were ever able to resolve this problem, or find the exact cause.
I have the same issue you describe. I descaled my Lattissima for the first time using the Nespresso descaling solution. And now, two months later, I cannot remove the chemical smell/taste of the descaling solution. I've run numerous descaling cycles with just water (as per Nespresso's customer service advice), with no success. I was forced to accept a refurbished machine (even though my Lattissima was only 3 months old). The refurbished machine is currently on the way. We'll see if I have the same issue when I descale this one.
Thanks, Redfran

Decreased output from Senseo


I'm thinking it needs to be "Descaled" Heres info from Senseo.com:

Does my Senseo® appliance need to be descaled? Yes. Descaling is an important element in Senseo maintenance. It should be done at least once every three months, up to six times a year!

Keeping your Senseo free of scale will:
  • Ensure you have maximum cup volume
  • Ensure you have maximum coffee temperature
  • Make your Senseo produce less sound while brewing
  • Prevent your Senseo from malfunctioning
  • Prolong your Senseo's life.
The descaling process takes about one hour and should not be interrupted. Only a descaling agent based on citric acid can be used safely in the Senseo. Other agents, including vinegar, may damage your appliance or not remove the scale entirely. If the procedure is not performed correctly, scale residue may remain in the machine. This causes scale to build up more quickly and may cause permanent and irreparable damage to the machine.

For the right procedure to descale your type of Senseo, see attached document.
