Question about Philips Senseo HD7832 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Coffee is watery. Not sure if its the maker or the new senseo pods. I recently used white vinegar solution to descale and since the coffee is terrible ... very watery. Is it because of the descaling, or, have the pods changed. In any event the coffee went from wonderful to awful.

Hi. Who says to use vinegar. I wouldn't use that. Sounds like your pump is not pumping at right pressure. Vinegar can make the lime/calcium build up, break up into too large of pieces. which can block the pump. Descale solution breaks these deposits up. allowing it to be flushed from the system.

Need a descaler


instractions are from manual HD7810/00

Use the correct descaling agent
Only citric acid-based descalers are suitable for descaling the SENSEO
machine. This
type of descaler descales the machine without damaging it. For the correct amount,
see under 'Descaling procedure' below. Each descaling mixture can be used only once.
After use, the descaling mixture is no longer active.
We advise you to use the special SENSEO
Descaler (HD7012/HD7011/HD7006).
Read the instructions on the package of the descaling agent.
Never use a descaling agent based on mineral acids such as sulphuric acid,
hydrochloric acid, sulphamic acid and acetic acid (e.g. vinegar). These descaling
agents may damage your SENSEO

coffee machine.
Descaling procedure
1 Mix 50 grams of citric acid with 1 litre of water in a measuring jug. Stir until
the powder is completely dissolved.
2 Fill the water reservoir up to the MAX indication with the descaler mixture.
Then put the water reservoir back into the coffee machine. (Fig. 3)
Note: Not all SENSEO
machine types have a water reservoir with a capacity of
1 litre. If you have a SENSEO

machine with a smaller water reservoir, repeat steps
2 to 6 with the remainder of the mixture without filling the water reservoir up to
the MAX indication.
3 Press on/off button 3. (Fig. 10)
The machine is ready for use when the indicator light lights up continuously.
4 Place the 1-cup holder h with a used coffee pod in it in the coffee machine.
Close the lid and make sure it is properly locked.
Note: Always put a used coffee pod in the pod holder when you descale the
machine. This pod serves as a 'filter' to prevent the sieve or hole in the pod holder
from getting clogged with scale residue.
5 Put a bowl with a capacity of at least 1500ml under the spout to collect the
descaling mixture (Fig. 8).
6 Press the 2-cup button hhand let the machine operate. Repeat this until
the water reservoir is empty. (Fig. 25)
Never interrupt the descaling process!
7 Repeat steps 1 to 6. Replace the used pod with another used pod to filter out
the scale residue.
Note: To descale properly, you have to use 2 litres of descaling mixture.
Never descale the SENSEO
coffee machine with the lid open. Make sure the lid is
properly locked.
8 Rinse the water reservoir with tap water. Fill the water reservoir up to the
MAX indication with tap water and repeat steps 3 to 6.
Note: Do not refill the water reservoir with used hot water or the used descaling
mixture.
9 Fill the water reservoir with fresh tap water up to the MAX indication again
and repeat steps 3 to 6 once more.
Note: Always rinse the machine by letting it empty two full water reservoirs.
10 Remove the used pad and clean the pod holder after descaling to prevent the
sieve or hole in the centre from getting clogged.

Can you descale a coffee machine with white vinegor ?


Yes. A 20% solution of white vinegar will descale any coffee maker. I prefer to run straight water for 1 cycle after this process to ensure no vinegar aftertaste remain. I've been using white vinegar to descale my coffee makers for years and it works great.

The water or coffee does not come out correctly anymore. When making a cup of coffee (w/ pod) or just hot water (no pod), the hot liquid does not come out in a steady stream, it goes everywhere. When i...


211333Sorry to read about your issue.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Vote/Rate this response. Thanks and good luck

Philips senseo coffee is watery


It may be the pod holder,there is a seal under the black disc at the bottom of the holder,the water will bypass the coffee under pressure,travel to the outside of the pod holder and exit the centre where the filter mesh is,if there is no foam also this is a sure sign,fill the empty pod holder with water and see how quick the water drips,I had this same issue and bought a new pod holder and compared,should be no more than 1 drop a second,you can knock the plastic out and re seat the O ring or buy a new holder,hope this is of use to you

Coffee tastes stale even after cleaning


A few things you can do. Buy less pods at a time and store them in a jar. Shake or aerate the water when you put it in the unit. Don't put it in, the night before.

Descaling


Just use vinegar. Fill the reservoir with white vinegar, put a pot or big bowl under the spout, get ready as if you were going to brew and then press BOTH the one cup and two cup buttons together.

Run the vinegar through again when it's done, and then run clean (filtered, preferably) water through twice. You're done.

Decreased output from Senseo


I'm thinking it needs to be "Descaled" Heres info from Senseo.com:

Does my Senseo® appliance need to be descaled? Yes. Descaling is an important element in Senseo maintenance. It should be done at least once every three months, up to six times a year!

Keeping your Senseo free of scale will:
  • Ensure you have maximum cup volume
  • Ensure you have maximum coffee temperature
  • Make your Senseo produce less sound while brewing
  • Prevent your Senseo from malfunctioning
  • Prolong your Senseo's life.
The descaling process takes about one hour and should not be interrupted. Only a descaling agent based on citric acid can be used safely in the Senseo. Other agents, including vinegar, may damage your appliance or not remove the scale entirely. If the procedure is not performed correctly, scale residue may remain in the machine. This causes scale to build up more quickly and may cause permanent and irreparable damage to the machine.

For the right procedure to descale your type of Senseo, see attached document.
