1 Answer

To descale your machine, follow these steps:

1) Remove the machine's water reservoir.
2) Empty all liquid from the reservoir.
3) Mix the cleaner/descaler according to the manufacturer's directions.
4) Return the water reservoir to the machine.
5) Turn the machine on.
6) Place a large container underneath the steam wand to collect the de-calcifying solution.
7) Place another small container underneath the brew spout to collect more of the de-calcifying solution.
8) Set up your machine so that hot water -NOT steam- will be emitted from the steam wand when the steam valve is opened.
9) To start the de-calcifying process, press the "brew" button (some models must have the brew and steam buttons pressed in order for water to exit the wand only).
10) While pressing the "brew" button, open the steam valve.
11) Allow about eight oz of water to be dispensed from the machine.
12) Turn off the brew button.
13) Close the steam valve.
14) Allow the machine to sit for the amount of time specified on the cleaner packaging. If no time is specified, five minutes is usually enough.
15) Repeat steps nine through fourteen until all of the de-calcifying solution has drained into the containers.
16) Remove the containers and discard the collected liquid.
17) Rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and then fill it with your usual water for brewing.
18) Place the water reservoir back in its normal position.
19) Rinse out the de-calcifying solution by repeating steps six through ten until the water reservoir is empty again. You can repeat the rinsing cycle if you wish.

My Panosonic dimension 4 microwave has started but a "refer to user instructions before use" message up. It still works fine but do you know why it's doing this??

It should only do this after it has lost power and then regained power. Are you unplugging the device in between uses or using a surge protector/power strip switch to turn off the power between uses?
It is just a reminder to new users that they should refer to the manual. It is not reporting that there is anything amiss with the device.

GE profile microwave keeps alarming "reminder"

test this steps and fix it. God bless you

  1. Controller is confusedA power surge or random non-reproducible action of the universe may have resulted in the controller's program ending up in an infinite loop. Pull the plug for a minute or two to reset it.
  2. Defective Interlock switchesThis can result in the controller thinking the door is open and ignoring you.
  3. CleaningCleaning solutions (spray cleaner) may have gotten inside and shorted out the touchpad or controller. If this happens remove the touchpad, let it air dry for a few days, and then attach it back on the microwave.

I have a DeLonghi EAM3200 series expresso machine and I need the instructions for the decalcifying process.

Typically the process is to simply run a vinegar and water solution through without coffee grounds. Usually a 2 parts vinegar to 1 part water solution will do it. Next, run clean water through 2 or 3 times to rinse out the vinegar. Be sure to let the machine cool between boilings.

User manual lost


I lost a user manual, then found these guys. They emailed it to me in about 2 hours and it only cost about £3, which i thought was very reasonable.

Hope this helps.
