Do you know what works even better than vinegar? - Denture cleaner. Really! MA Dept. of Housing office has a heavily used group of coffee makers, and the secretary just drops one tablet in carafe and lets it clean overnight. Looks like new.

How to descale keurig elite 40 coffee maker with vinigar


Unfortunately you will need to use vinegar. The acetic acid in vinegar is strong enough to clean most brewing machines.

Use distilled white vinegar.

What do you do when it says calc. on the display?


Calc is indicating that it's time to descale the lime build up inside your coffee maker. Most machines are easily cleaned by running a solution of 4 parts water to 1 part vinegar. Run this solution through a regular coffee cycle (no coffee). After running this solution, you may want to run straight water once more to ensure there's no vinegar aftertaste. Your machine will now be clean and the CALC message should disappear. If not, post back with the Model # of your Krups coffee maker for further instructions. Some machines have a Descale or Self Cleaning option built into them.

What is descale?


I believe the word "descale" is being used when a calcium build-up has occurred on the inside of your coffee maker. When this happens I run vinegar through my coffee maker and it removes or descales everything.

How do I clean the esprsso tank?


Commercial descalers like CLR are about the worst thing you can use on equipment used to prepare foods. I would suggest nothing but food grade white vinegar.

Put it through a brew several times with white vinegar and let it sit for several hours. Come back later and give it a good flush with filtered or distilled water.
