Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker

Open Question

The descale message is coming on every few days. The machine has been descaled several times so I don't think that can really be the problem.

I now use soft, filtered water each day. The "descale" message still comes up every 60 days. Is descaling that frequently, normal?

yes you will still need to descale it
soft filtered water still contains minerals and calcium but in lesser quantities
if you wish to avoid descaling use distilled water or demineralized water

I have had my Kuerig coffee maker for over a year now which I believe means it's no longer under warranty. However, I paid quite a lot for it so I'd really like to see if I can have it repaired...

unfortunatly keurig treats any home model as throwaway once warrenty is up. They even do the same with mostcommercial models. By the sounds of your problems its time for a new one. sorry. try for a b145 or b150 they are a little more robust.

Needs descaling, I don't have the manual, what is the procedure??

Hi Auto descale: To automatically descale your machine, press the scoop or menu button and hold it down until you enter the menu. Use the arrows on the to scroll up until you come to "Descale". Press enter and the machine will enter the mode to descale your machine. The process takes about 45 minutes. You don't have to do a thing except mix a full water tank with descaling solution and have a container under the steam wand when your start. If you have a cappuccinonatori on your machine you will need two containers. To start the descaling process simply turn the steam knob. When the process is over your machine will say "Descale finished". Remove your water tank and rinse it out. Refill it with fresh water. Replace on the machine and close the open the steam knob again. Let it quit on its own. Refill tank again and prime the machine and your ready. Exit "Descale mode and scroll down to "Reset descale", press the enter button and chose "Yes", then exit and your ready for the next time.

the best and cheapest descaler is vinegar. Let it sit in the machine for a couple of hours and then run it through a few times. Works wonderfully!

My Saeco Vienna Digital has been really great (constant use since 2005), but now it is leaking water, and sometimes only half a cup comes out. I think there is an O ring that needs to be replaces (orange,...

The O-rings are made of silicone and usually don't wear out. The usual cause is the boiler gasket. Heer is a picture of what to look for. The white in the center of the boiler is scale (calcium) that builds up on the center portion of the boiler. It will build up enough to let the gasket not seal and the boiler leaks. The other thing is if you descale hot. The descaler will turn the gasket brittle and it won't seal. The last thing is not descaling enough. Everybody thinks their water is good and don't need to descale. WRONG. I have great water but I descale every 3-4 months depending on how many coffees I have done. The machine will tell me and I descale. My machine is a Italia Digital and I make 10 - 12 coffees a day. It is now going on 8 years. Still has the same boiler. Descale more often than not enough and your machine will last a long time.bansheracer_6.jpg

No water comes out on ventilate. At first, the water was coming out very slowly, in drips. The doser or grind were not the problem, because even when I switched to Hot Water, it was still dripping. ...

It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to properly descale the machine. If it only took a couple of minutes you really didn't descale your machine. If you used the powder it has to disolve completly before descaling. The best way to descale is with the descaler in the tank. Turn on the machine and run about 8 ozs of water-descaler through the wand and then turn off the machine. Wait 10 minutes and repeatthe last procedure. Do this until the tank is empty. When done with the descaler, rinse out the tank and put fresh water in the tank and run the whole tank through the wand. Then fill the tank and your ready to go.

Would like to descale my machine without descaling solution, is this possible?

Ok guys this is my own opinion on descalling and I have to tell you firstly I have been repairing saeco machine for over 8 years so I think I know a bit about them by now. Scheduled Descalling to me is a waste of time and money, now I'M NOT saying to "never descale your saeco" but when that descale light or word comes up on your machine it does not necessarily mean your machine needs to be descaled. Your Saeco machine DOES NOT have a magical sensor inside that tells you there is calcium build up inside the boiler. All Saeco machine use a timer device built into the Electronic main board. As a pre set number of coffee's are made, Saeco has set a timer to bring up either a light or Symbol on screen to tell you your machine is in need of a descale. Now with different countries , States and living conditions not all water outlets consist of the same water purities, so how can Saeco say at a certain time your machine needs descalling? ( Saeco's are built in Europe were most places you wouldn't be caught dead drinking their tap water ) . I can only go by experience where I repair machines in Australia (Melbourne) and I have had many machines fail due to being constantly descalled. How many of you have been having a good run from your machine until the day you thought you had better off descale your magic deluxe as it hadn't been done in a while. Upon descalling the machine you hear and see water leaking from the unit and Bang , the machine stops dead , or if your very lucky you shut the machine off just in time before the circuit board gets wet and you send the Deluxe to Saeco and now your up for a new boiler and service.
What had happened is that in time the seals of the boiler have broken down and the calcium lining the boilers internal walls have been sealing the boiler from leaking. Upon cleaning the boiler , calcium is removed and the seals don't hold and you know the rest. I have personally given a machine to a family member and told them never to descale just to see what happens ( will the boiler go , or water stop flowing due to blockages? ) I can honestly tell you that this machine was made in 1996 and I had replaced the boiler 8 years ago , to this day the machine has not missed a beat and no leaks on boiler ( I have instructed them to regulary clean out brewer and lubricate seals ). Ah they hardley use it I hear you say , quite the contrary , Italian family, machine used every day and even taken once in a while to their local social gatherings making coffees for over 30 people. I also have a customer who every so often after 2 years will come back for a new boiler fitted ( machine used in pannel beating shop ) I told him to try not doing any descaling until he could see any water flow restrictions. It's been over 3 years now and I havent seen the machine back yet but I do time to time come across him and ask how the Saeco is going , he says "all is well". Now not doing a descale at all is madness as I have had many blocked or semi clogged boilers due to high calcium deposits ( expecially around the beach coast areas ) But if you feel that your machine is pumping a little less water and the brewer is clean from any blockages then a well deserved descale is probably needed. With older machines you only need to reset the descale light or display if not needed. With other types like Saeco Incanto you need to only go through the descale process without the additive or cleaning fluid introduced into the water tank and decsale will reset.I hope I have shed some light on this issue and I'm not trying to say Saeco are pulling the wool over your eyes when it comes to descaling. I am going by my experiences only and what I have seen during my time with these machines. Enjoy your Coffee

Try descaling it manually- by adding the descaler into the tank, letting the machine warm up and then open the water spout to fill one cup at a time. wait 15min. in between. Also clean brew group and grinder.

I had the same problem with a Saeco Royal Digital. I ran the decalcifying liquid through the machine with the automatic descaling program as per the instructions on the bottle and the DECALCIFY message stayed up.
I solved it by going to the menu and selecting "Signal Descal." and toggling it from No to Yes. I escaped back to the menu and git the usual "Select Product".
Hope this helps.
