Machine seems to be stuck in descaling mode. I descaled but the warning light was still on. I pressed the descaling button and now the machine thinks it's supposed to descale. Can I reset the machine? I have the saeco talea giro plus.

Descaling Problem SOLVED!
Folks, I really hope this helps a lot of you. I too encountered the dreaded descaling problem where it gets stuck in a loop and never finishes. I thought the machine was toast and see so many reviews that people experienced this and had to return the machine.
I tore apart the machine and figured out the issue and the super simple fix!
What happens is the water level sensor does not know it is running out so when the tank empties due to running dry, it never completes the cycle.
Where the water basin goes, if you look at the back lower down, you will see a small rectangular protrusion. This is the water level sensor that works by measuring capacitance. You know how sometimes your machine runs completely out of water and you have to prime it with the tea/hot water button? This is why! When you put the tank in full, water splashes over the edge and down the back. It coats the outside rear of the tank and the sensor with water so the machine thinks it still has an adequate level of water but then all of a sudden runs dry.
The FIX:
Take a paper towel and dry off the water level sensor and the back of the tank. When you put the tank in, do not fill it too high and put it in gently to avoid water spilling out.
Simple as that...fixed!

The answer is simple. The instructions in the manual and on Saeco's brand name descale fluid are WRONG! Either that, or they wired all the machines wrong. Instead of pushing the descale button to end the descale cycle (which makes sense) you have to push the WATER button to end the descale cycle (which doesn't make sense - but works every time). Saeco machines are great. It's just the instructions that suck.

SOURCE: Saeco Talea Giro Plus, descaling

Try doing another rinse cycle until water tank empties. I had to do that a couple of times, then the red exclamation mark came on. Then I turned knob to off position, refilled water tank, pressed the descale button for 6 seconds, green light came back on and it did its priming.

Did you often use the espresso machine for family or for business, when you often use the machine and you used water that is not filtered, you can assure it need to descale often.
Read carefully the manual and follow instruction. Did you descale it in the right amount of solution, how long and its duration?
If still persist ( the descaling light continue flashing ) then it has a defect in sensor. Since your machine is new, its under warranty. Call the dealer where you brought that and a service technician will send.
I hope I give you answer and solution idea for your unit problem.

GAGGIA Brera RI9833/61 - Descaling light still on after descaling


I think that you button doesn't make a good contact. Try to press it with different pressure and on different sides slightly off center to give this a try - it may be just a bad contact that is enough to change the bean setting but not enough to reset the warning indicator through a long press. Let me know how it goes ... they may have changed the button that needs to be pressed as well (does your manual say anything different?)

I can't descale my C5


You may need to go into program mode and "tell it" you replaced the filter. We normally do this when we replace water filters in Jura's. On the f60 you get into program and scroll using the water volume dial and push it in to set the changed value.
Hope this helps

Giaggia Brera descaling problem


Hi,
been talking to Gaggia (Philips) and they told me that with the newer Breras, you need to ill the water tank, put the machine into standby, then press the long and short cup buttons together for 6 seconds. This will start an auto descale programme (that they didn't mention in my manual!). A small amount of water will be dispensed through the coffee nozzles, then it will stop and the warning triangle and the prime warning light will come on. Place a large container under the panarello, then turn the knob to the right to dispense water. It will dispense about 50 - 100 mls (cold) water, then stop for about a minute. Just leave it and eventually it will empty the tank. Refill it and start again, but it will stop after a few seconds. Turn the knob back to central position, then it will dispense another small amount of water from the coffee nozzles, then stop with warning lights again. Turn the knob back right to dispense water, if it stops because of empty tank, just refill it. Eventually, the machine will stop and go to standby. Turn the knob back to the centre, refill tank yet again and the machine will start normally WITHOUT that descale warning light. HOORAY !!

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.

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.

How do I descale the saeco magic deluxe coffee machine?


Hi,

Try this:

Standard descaling
Switch off the machine.
Pour a descaling product into the water tank.
Switch the machine on to the programming mode(see below). Place a large container under the steam/hot water dispensing tube and open the steam/hot water knob slowly, turning it counterclockwise.
Turn on the machine by pressing the main switch and let the descaling product flow out of the dispensing tube for approx. 1 min.
Close the knob again.
Turn off the machine with the main switch and let the solution take effect for approx. 5 minutes.
Repeat this procedure two or three times, to allow all of the descaling product in the water tank to flow out of the dispensing tube.
As soon as descaling has been carried out, rinse the tank thoroughly and fill it with fresh water.
Switch on the machine and let fresh water (approx. 2 l) flow out of the steam/hot water dispensing tube in order to rinse away residue.
The machine is now ready for operation.

When the machine is on, the warning light switches off automatically, by pressing the steam selection button for at least 5 seconds.

To enter the programming mode, turn the machine
off with the main switch.
Press steam , espresso coffee and the
main switch at the same time.

Release the buttons.

Hope this will help you.

Descaling


(Button 26 is the right-most one (2 intersecting
ovals.)
From the Manual:
Press the button (26) for at least 5 seconds to
select the descaling operating mode; the LED
emits a fixed light.
• Direct the steam nozzle (14) toward the drip
tray.
• Position a vessel of adequate capacity under
the steam nozzle and turn the hot water knob
anticlockwise (16). The appliance starts an
automatic descaling cycle with pauses preset
by the manufacturer and managed
automatically by the appliance.
• At the end of the cycle, the flow of the
descaling solution is shut off and the 5 buttons
start flashing simultaneously.
• Turn the knob of the hot water nozzle (16)
clockwise to OFF. In this case, also the warning
light (27) flashes.
• Rinse the water tank and fill it with fresh
drinking water.
• Position a vessel of adequate capacity under
the steam nozzle and empty 2/3 of the
contents of the water tank by turning the steam
knob (16) anticlockwise; to shut off the flow,
turn the knob (16) clockwise.
• Let the appliance heat up and empty the
remaining contents of the water tank by turning
the steam knob (16) anticlockwise; to stop the
flow, turn it clockwise.
