Question about Breville BKC700XL Stainless Steel
Descaling the Brewer
Mineral content in water varies from place to place. Depending on the
mineral content of the water in your area, calcium deposits or scale
may build up in your Brewer. Scale is non-toxic, but left unattended, it
can hinder the Brewer's performance. Descaling your Brewer helps
maintain the heating element and other internal parts of the Brewer that
come in contact with water.
NOTE: Do not use water that has been treated by a 'water softener'. The increase in sodium levels in the water can cause scaling in the brewer and hinder its performance.
The Brewer should be descaled every 3-6 months to ensure optimal performance. It is possible for calcium deposits to build up faster, making it necessary to descale more often. This Brewer is equipped with sensors to detect when scale buildup is interfering with the performance of the Brewer. When this is detected, the LCD screen will indicate 'DESCALE'.
NOTE: The Brewer will continue to operate even when the LCD screen indicates 'DESCALE'.
However, if you do not descale the Brewer soon after it is displayed, continued scale buildup could damage the Brewer. If this occurs, 'DESCALE' will begin to flash, alerting you to the potential damage to the Brewer if you do not descale immediately. Promptly follow these steps each time the LCD screen indicates 'DESCALE' to ensure that the Brewer functions optimally.
1. Empty the Water Tank and refill it with vinegar, filling up to the MAX mark on the water tank viewing window. 2. Place a 12 oz. or larger ceramic cup (do not use a plastic cup) on the Drip Tray. The Drip Tray and Drip Tray Plate can be removed to accommodate taller mugs and travel mugs. 3. Select the largest brew size (11.25 oz. serving) by pressing the button on the control panel. 4. Run a cleansing brew without a K-Cup®. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink. 5. Repeat the cleansing brew process until the Water Tank is empty, pouring the contents of the cup into the sink after each cycle. Remember to raise and lower the Safety Locking Arm between each cycle so the control panel buttons illuminate. 6.
