If you are talking about the descale light, you must let the machine quit on its own. The pump has to stop on its own. Any interruption (you stopping the machine) will keep it in the descale mode. Once it stops on its own, the lights will change. Then do the rinse by replacing the water in the tank and closing and then reopening the steam knob and again letting the machine quit on its own. Again the lights will change. Then repeat the last cycle (putting water in the tank and closing and then reopening the steam knob)until all the red lights go away and you only have a green blinking light. Now your finished descaling a compact without a digital display.

Krups Ea8050, been through descaling process , now keep getting unplug icon,does not fill up,and unable to go to any other program


Did you completely finish the descale process. On the models I'm familiar with you run thru the descale doing every step it requests then refill the tank and run thru the rinsing process until it ends completely. As far as I know there is no reset for errors, the problem needs to be located and fixed. I have no idea what the unplug icon may be indicating.

Tip

Proper way to descale an espresso machine.


Hi
I have seen all ways to descale espresso machines on this and other sites and most are wrong!
Never leave the machine heating while the descaler is in the boiler. It's OK for a few seconds but never for minutes or hours. It will turn your seals hard as a rock and the machine will start leaking. If your machine is leaking you probably left your machine on while it was descaling. Factory programs, if used do not turn the boilers on in the descale mode for this very reason.
If your machine has a factory descale mode, use it. All factory descaling programs use the flow meter to regulate the descaling. The flow meter tells the computer how much water has gone through the boiler. when the machine is out of water the flow meter will stop turning and the computer knows the machine has used up all the descaler, and it will want to be rinsed. Remember the pump has to stop on its own for the computer to know it's done! Again the flow meter will tell the computer it is rinsing and when it is again out of fresh water it will tell the computer it is done rinsing and the descaling message or light will disappear. Remember the pump has to stop on its own for the computer to know it's done! It may say descale on some computers and there is a program for resetting the descale. It's in your menu as "Reset Descale". Choose "Yes" and push the menu button to lock. It's all regulated by your water hardness. I have mine set on 4 and my water is very good. I have over 20,000 drinks, and the original boiler. Saeco(Starbucks) Barista Digital.
This method can be used on any espresso machine.
1. Remove the water tank and fill half way with fresh water.
2. Mix your descaling powder (Citric Acid or Durgol Never use Vinegar) in a glass of warm water. When dissolved pour into water tank.
3. Open steam knob. Have a large bowl under the wand to catch the water expelled from wand.
4. Turn on machine (automatics will cycle then start pumping water) Regular espresso machines you will need to turn on the brew button.
5. When the pump has expelled about 8 ozs through the steam wand turn off only the power button. Leave the other buttons and knobs alone.
6. Wait about 10 to 15 minutes for the descaler to work, then turn the power button on and run another 8 ozs through the wand and turn off the power button.
7. Repeat step 6 until the water tank is empty. (machines that have magnets in the water tank will not let you pump the water tank dry but they have programs built in to use that will)
8. Once the tank of descaler is empty, rinse out and fill with fresh water.
9. Open steam knob and run the complete tank of fresh water through the boiler without stopping, and once its complete refill with fresh water and your ready to go.

How do I enter the secret Programming mode on a Miele DG 6401 steam oven to perform a total software reset?


Press and hold the timer button (the bell picture), and whilst doing that press and hold the power button. Then let go of both at the same time. Then press the timer button 5 more times, but on the fifth time hold for a few seconds. Once in Programming mode play with the options to reset and restart descaling.

The machine says to descale _ How do I do that???!!


THIS INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR THE MIELE CVA 615,

The coffee system must be descaled regularly. The time period depends on
the water hardness set. The appliance will display a reminder message and
will eventually lock if not descaled. The message window will first display:
"DESCALE AFTER COFFEES: 100".
This message will appear until the appliance is descaled or locks. When
the count is down to zero, the appliance will lock and the message
window displays: The appliance can only be used again
once descaling has been performed. Let the machine cool before
descaling. Remove the sleeve of the steam nozzle to avoid damage from
the descaling agent. Only use the enclosed descaling tablets for descaling.
The descaling tablets are specially designed for descaling this coffee
system. Other agents may damage the machine and affect the taste of
the coffee and hot water. The descaling tablets can be purchased
from Miele.
To prevent damage to the exterior of the machine wipe up any descaling
solution spills immediately! Add 2 liters of water to the water tank. Dissolve two of the enclosed
descaling tablets in the water.
^ Close the water tank and insert into position.
^ Close the door. The descaling will take place in the
automatic descaling program.
Automatic descaling
^ Turn the program selector
counterclockwise to the "Program
mode" position.Press e, to select "Descaling" with the asterisk. Press ENTER.

I had this problem too. I was beside myself wondering what to do. I took the machine apart but there was nothing wrong. It was stuck in an infinite descale cycle. The 5 green buttons never blinked to say it was done. What finally fixed it was to close the steamer valve to where water was being being restricted from the steamer wand but still a little water was spurting out. It finally quit emitting water and the 5 lights blinked and the infinite descale cycle completed. This model espresso maker was a lemon and been nothing but problems.

I have a solis 5000 coffee maker and would like to descale. the users manual says never use vinegar as it will harn the machine. It recomends a product called SOLIPOL, is there another product that you...


Hi
Starbucks used to carry a descaling product for their machines. Yes don't use vinegar because it is only 5% before you dilute it. It also leaves a taste for about 2 weeks that will affect the taste of your coffee. You can use Citric acid. 1 tablespoon per 32 oz of water. Use at least 2 table spoons. Dissolve the descaling solution so there are no crystals left. Now.
Turn the machine off and then push and hold the 2 buttons at the same time. While holding them down, turn the machine on.
Release the buttons and turn the dial counter clockwise till it stops.
This will keep the machine from heating.
If you push the steam button the pump will activate.
Open the steam knob. Run 8 oz through the wand and rekease the button. Let it set for 10 minutes, then open the knob again. Repeat until the tank is empty. Rinse with a whole tank of fresh water and your done.
If you have the Digital there is a program in the menu for descaling. There is also a program for resetting the descal mode so it will tell you the next time it need to be done. Chose yes and push the enter button. Also change your water hardness to 4. Descale more often than not enough.

Press enter.  Turn steam valve al the way on.  Keep an eye on the containers.  The process takes about 30 to 40 minutes.  The message will appear 'Descaling finished." Turn steam selector to O and press enter.  Display will read "rinse machine, fill watertank.  Fill tank and return to machine.  Place empty containers beneath hot water dispenser and steam nozzle again and turn steam selector fully on. Allow water to run through system completely.  When process is finished, display will read "Rinsing Finished."  Turn steam selector to O and press enter  Program selector is on Program Mode and display will read Descaling, Timrt, unit is no descaled and ready to use.  Turn program selector to on.
