CARE AND CLEANING

CLEANING THE COFFEE MAKER

Calcium deposits (scale) from water will build up in the Coffee Maker over time and
impair brewing efficiency and coffee quality. If you notice that it takes longer than
usual to brew or that the Coffee Maker is making unusual noises, then it is time
to descale. The Clean indicator will flash when the Coffee Maker has completed
100 brew cycles. Descaling should be done as soon as possible to preserve the
performance and life of your Coffee Maker.
NOTE: The Coffee Maker can be
descaled using a vinegar and water
solution or by using a packaged
descaling agent. Always mix the
descaling solution using cool water.
When using vinegar, fill the carafe
with a solution consisting of 1/2 vinegar
and 1/2 water.
When using a descaling agent, follow
the directions on the package for
the recommended ratios of descaling
agent and water to use.
The Coffee Maker should be run
through a complete Clean cycle using
a full tank of the descaling solution.
Before descaling, always remove
the water filter (see the "Installing
1
the water filter" section) and make
sure the filter basket contains no
coffee or coffee filters.
