Decalcification refers to the removal of calcium
deposits which form over time on the metal
parts of the coffeemaker.

Thermal™ Coffeemaker, decalcify the base unit
from time to time. The frequency depends upon
the hardness of your tap water and how often
you use the coffeemaker. The flashing Clean
light will indicate when you should clean your

Code 40 - is Bowl Fault
The electronics has sensed that the bowl is not engaged.
Check the following - Mechanical.
1. Check that there are no foreign objects causing the bowl to malfunction. As it fills up the inner bowl will disengage from the outer bowl. It will sort of freewheel as so to speak.
2. If empty of water, carry out a clutch disassembly procedure and check spline drive. - removed center of agitator, unscrew middle of the agitator a screw, remove the screws on the top pf the inner bowl to separate, will need to remove the top though to do this, usally two rubber bungs on the front screws under and the rear is normally plastic clipped/lock setup.
3. Next check that the pressure tube has not come off and that it is not kinked. - check the clear tube by blwing into the bowl as you remove the top electronics cover (2) screws top rear - do not blow into transducer on the controller module.
Electronics - if all else fails - Replace Motor Control Module.
