Question about Microwave Ovens
Run a cup of vinegar throught the coffee maker to descale the water system. Run an additional 2 pots of water to clear the vinegar. Flow should increase. Depending upon the amount of scale you may have to do this a couple ot times.
For severe scaling un a cup of the commercial descaler CLR and then flush the system with 2 pots of water. This should clear the system.
You should run the vinegar cleansing at least once a month or the recommended 30 pots of coffee brewed. This also depends upon the hardness your water supply.
Let me know if this helps. Thanks.

I know that most grocery stores sell a "cleaner" or two next to their coffee filters/coffee makers/kitchen appliances section. These are usually heavily acidic, and will do a great job of cleaining your coffee maker. I've always been wary of acid in my coffee though, so I just use white vinegar. It'll do a decent job of cleaning out the coffee maker. Run a 1:1 mix of water and vinegar through your coffee maker, drain it, then run water through at least twice.
Scaleing/deposits building up in a coffee maker are signs of imperfections in the water. All tap water has it, but if you don't want to worry about it, use bottled or filtred water in your coffee pot. Plus, your coffee will taste better!

In order to keep your Tassimo machine
operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three
months. Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell
coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to
descale your Tassimo machine is intended for this specific use only. Mix
the descaling product directly in the water container, following the
instructions provided on the descaling packaging. Then replace the water
container on the machine. Place a large cup or mug on the cup stand,
insert the cleaning disc, bar code down and close the brew mechanism. As
soon as the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop
button. This will fill the brew cycle with descaling solution. Empty the
cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes. Then open the brew
mechanism and close it again, leaving the cleaning disc in place. Repeat
this step two more times for maximum descaling effectiveness.
Discard the remaining descaling agent from the water
container, rinse it well and refill with fresh, cold water. Clean the
machine by flushing water through it in the same manner and emptying the
cup as it fills. Make sure that all the descaling solution has been
completely rinsed away, and then flush two full water containers through
the machine before using it again. Remove the cleaning disc, rinse and
refill the water container and your Tassimo machine is ready to use.
Also, before you descale your Tassimo machine, always unplug it. Also,
never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive
cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Tassimo
machine. This method works for most espresso machines,
including some of these popular models: the DeLonghi Magnifica
EAM3200S, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400,
Gaggia 74507BCN Classic, Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi
PrimaDonna ESAM6600, the BC0255 DeLonghi coffee machine and the Krups Nespresso CititZ XN 7006.
