I had this happen once and had to put it through the descale process again. Just put more water in the tank, try it again and see what happens.

Lavazza Classy Plus LB400 stuck in "rinse" mode after descaling - help!!

If your Lavazza Classy Plus LB400 coffee machine is stuck in "rinse" mode after descaling, it could be caused by a few different issues. Here are a few things you can try to fix the problem:
  1. Check the water tank: Make sure that the water tank is properly filled and that the water level is high enough to complete the rinse cycle.
  2. Check the water filter: Make sure that the water filter is clean and not clogged. A clogged water filter can prevent the machine from completing the rinse cycle.
  3. Check the descaling solution: Make sure that the correct descaling solution is being used and that it is being used in the correct amount.
  4. Check the hoses and lines: Make sure that the hoses and lines are not clogged or blocked.
  5. Check the machine's firmware: Make sure that your machine's firmware is up to date and that there is no error.
  6. Perform a factory reset: If the above steps did not resolve the issue, then you can try performing a factory reset on your machine by following the instructions in the user manual.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, I would recommend contacting Lavazza's customer support for further assistance. They may be able to provide additional troubleshooting steps or may recommend a qualified technician to repair the unit.

If your machine is stuck in descale mode and you are unable to initiate the descale process again, it could be a problem with the machine's control board. The control board is responsible for managing the various functions of the machine, and if it is malfunctioning, it can prevent the machine from completing the descale process. Another possibility is that the descale sensor is not working properly, it might be stuck and it's preventing the machine from exiting the descaling process.
Here are a few things you can try to fix the problem:
  1. Try to unplug the machine for a longer period of time, like 30 minutes, and then plug it back in to see if that resets the machine.
  2. Check the water lines and hoses for any clogs or blockages, as this can prevent the machine from completing the rinse cycle.
  3. Contact Lavazza customer support for further assistance. They may be able to provide additional troubleshooting steps or may recommend a qualified technician to repair the unit.
  4. If none of the above steps resolve the issue, I would recommend you to contact a professional repair service.
It's worth noting that the troubleshooting steps might vary depending on the specific model of Lavazza Classy Plus LB400 and the cause of the error.

Gaggia Syncrony Logic RS. How do you descale the boil coil?

The manual is next to useless. I would find the closest Gaggia Service Centre and ask them to diagnose and fix. It says it needs descaling every 2 weeks, but you have a blockage in a water valve somewhere.




How can I reset the descaling process on a Miele CVA 5060 which is stuck at 1 minute.

Jura. Why is it stuck in descaling mode?

I had this problem where my Jura E6 was stuck in a descaling loop. I filled the water tank with warm water and turned it off and then on again. This reset it to main screen and I was able to complete the entire descaling process and machine is making coffee again!

What does the red light descaling prompt light stay on? how can i know i have everything possible?

Fill it up the tank with descaler and start the machine on descaling. Leave it to trow all the liquid and must finish to the bottom,leave the machine to get AIR when descaler finished.Then the machine will stop and will tell you to put fresh water to clean . Fill the water tank to the MAX level and continue with the program. When the water is on minimum ,machine will stop,and the descaling process must be finished.
Good luck

DeLonghi 3200 coffee maker descaling light always on

Usually machines have a light sensor that reads when descaling is needed but some run on a pressure switch have you tried a descaling chemicals on it yet ?

I have a Magnifica. The descale red flashing light won't reset after going through the descaling procceedure.

I have the same problem with my Delonghi Magnifica, so maybe there is a glitch in the machine..

Where can I buy Miele coffee system instruction book?

You have to buy descaling tablets from miele.  You turn the knob to program mode and keep pushing the enter button until you get to descaling.  You put two descaling tablets into your water reservoir and replace into unit.  Put containers under the steam valve and the hot water wand. Press enter.  Turn steam valve al the way on.  Keep an eye on the containers.  The process takes about 30 to 40 minutes.  The message will appear 'Descaling finished." Turn steam selector to O and press enter.  Display will read "rinse machine, fill watertank.  Fill tank and return to machine.  Place empty containers beneath hot water dispenser and steam nozzle again and turn steam selector fully on. Allow water to run through system completely.  When process is finished, display will read "Rinsing Finished."  Turn steam selector to O and press enter  Program selector is on Program Mode and display will read Descaling, Timrt, unit is no descaled and ready to use.  Turn program selector to on.
