Saeco Renaissance Digital Drip Coffeemaker Black - TDCM-CC

Very slow brewing! We've used vinegar, etc. to descale it. There is a plastic hose in the guts of the machine which we think is the culprit. Can this be easily removed, reamed out and put back in place??
HELP MEeeeeeeeeee.

Saeco Vienna deluxe is slow functioning post power on. 3 to 5 min. for the middle green light remain on. Press brew switch takes a 2-3 min. for the pump 2 activate. Once activated, coffee flows fine.

Machine is screaming for descaling. The Calcium deposits in the system are slowing down heating.
Do not think of using Vinegar.
Do not use R.O water or consider water is very soft in your area. There is nothing like that.

Talea giro plus / Descaling with vinegar

There are a couple of things I am thinking for this:

If the espresso machine is not spraying the hot steam like it should it says in the manual to take apart the steam apparatus and clean with hot water then to run hot water through the device after each use to clean.

Furthermore, have you seen those CLR commercials? I am sure white vinegar would be fine to put through the machine. As far as the ratio is concerned use a low concentrate to start out like 1 to 3 then increase until desired results occur.

I hope this helps!

Will not process the water to make coffee

the coffe maker might be clogged up so here' what to do: Look through the clear plastic panel on the side of the coffee maker's water tank to make sure that it has water in it.
  • Clean your Sunbeam coffee maker, You can wash the removable filter basket and carafe in hot, soapy water and pour 4 cups of white vinegar into the water reservoir of your coffee maker. Start the brewing cycle with no coffee grounds to allow the vinegar to clean the inside of the coffee maker. Rinse away the vinegar by running the brewing cycle twice with only clean, fresh water.
  • 8 Check the removable filter basket to see if the filter has collapsed if you find coffee grounds in your brewed coffee. If the paper filters collapse often you can wet them before you place them inside the filter basket so that they will stick to the basket and stay in place. or check this link because it might need a new hose.

    Removing Saeco coffeemaker dregs container

    The dregs container comes out with the drip tray. Lift up on the drip tray and slide it out. If this doesn't work then the brew group is out of position. Turn the machine off then on so that the machine goes through a self test. This will reposition the group allowing removal of the dregs container.

    Looking for instructions on cleaning and servicing the Saeco Royal


    When you clean the brewing unit wash it with hot water, do not
    use any solvent.

    Make sure there are no coffee residues on the two steel filters: the upper filter can be removed by unloosening and turning the plastic pin anticlockwise using the tool supplied.
    Dry thoroughly each central unit component, fit the filter again and tighten it properly with the screw .

    To do a descaling:
    Saeco descaler is recommended; however, you can use any non-toxic and/or non-harmful descaling product for coffee machines, commonly available in retail stores. The used solution is to be disposed of according to the manufacturer’s
    instructions and/or regulations in force in the country of use.

    Never use vinegar!

    Best regards
