Rated 5 out of 5 by Reasonable Price Descaling Powder Our Tassimo coffee maker shut down and the manual said it needed descaling because a red light was on. I searched for descalers online and found lots of high prices. When I went to Tassimo I found this reasonable priced descaling product. Tassimo shipped quickly and we were without coffee for five days. The descaling product worked well and we have more packages for future use. Coming from Tassimo also enforced the idea that we chose the correct product. A package of hot chocolate also came with the shipment and that product is a $10 value. Great experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gets the job done Recently, I descaled my machine for the first time. I had to repeat the descaling process because the instructions which accompanies the solution are vague, and that's what I had followed. Once I read and followed the instructions which accompanied the machine, the process was very successful; and the solution got the job done. August 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by keeps machine running smoothly When we take good care of our appliances, they, in turn, give us good service long-term. This product should be part of the maintenance schedule for your Tassimo, especially if you live in a hard water area like we do. Ordering online got this product to me in a few short days, August 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Don't skip this step or try other products. This stuff works! I used to be really annoyed when my red descaling light would come on and just ignore it. Finally, I used this powder, followed the directions, and wow! What a difference! Suddenly my teas and coffees had a much 'cleaner' taste and more pleasant to the palate. This descaling powder is super and if you take just a few minutes to run it through your machine when needed, you'll notice a much improved beverage! July 11, 2014

Light still on

My brewer is only 3 months old.I had to descale it using the powder provided in this website.It took me a long time to clean and rinse the tank,but the descale light is still on.I just called customer service and they told me to brew a cup of coffee to check if the unit is still working.The coffee is ok,but I don't think the light should stay on.How am I going to find out when I need to descale it again?Did this problem happen to anyone else??

Answer: 
Had exact same problem until I read the "fine print" on the descaler powder instructions. Make sure you mix descaling powder with correct amount of water. "Dezcal" packets for example call for 32 oz of water, which is much less than one full Tassimo container.

Answer: 
After trying to get the light off and 4 descaling solutions .i found this page the key is to press and hold the button until it starts, after a few seconds it stops, do not do anything leave the machine and it will start again and continue to stop and start for about 20 mins, when it stops re fill tank and start again to rinse, the light should go out when finished.

Answer: 
for it to work you must mix powder with one quart water.
remove filter in water tank and the part liner with it
fill the mixed solution, be sure the powder is dissolved.
place tank, insert orange disk cleaner with bar code down.
close and hold down the button until the light starts to pulse on and off. when this happens the machine will run on and off with out further pushing and will run by itself for about 20 minuets.
be patient and let it do its thing when the tank is empty the red cleaning light should stop. add fresh water (filled the tank full) and let it run pulsing when necessary. til its empty.
my tank holds two quarts and that is enough to rinse it.
the light will go out. I found this out the hard way and wasted two solutions. Hold down the button till it starts to clean itself. good luck, and happy holidays......

Answer: 
When you have inserted the plastic cleaning disc and added the cleaning solution to the tank, be sure to PUSH AND HOLD the brewing button in for several seconds until the unit starts the cleaning cycle before releasing the button. If you just push and release the button, it will not begin the 20 min. cleaning cycle. It will just brew one cup of hot water and the red light will remain on. The light goes off only after going through the entire 20 min cleaning cycle and all the cleaning solution. Also monitor the liquid level in the container you use to catch cleaning solution. The cleaning solution packet makes one quart of fluid, so you will probably have to empty your container midway through the cycle.

Answer: 
I have had my brewer for 2 years and have cleaned it numerous times and the red light has never gone off, it is so annoying, but the coffee tastes fine. Sorry, I have no solution for you, I have been researching for a solution but can't seem to get an answer.

Answer: 
Did you try turning if off for 10 minutes? Also check the hole at the bottom of where the water tank sits on the machine. Maske sure that it is clear and has no debris. Also you can wash or clean some of the removable parts.

All the lights come on when ever I try to make coffee. This unit was bought new and has been stored since purchased two years ago. Making hot water works just fine.

Try gently cleaning the bar code reader with a soft damp cloth then gently dry with a soft cloth. I had the same issue when I first bought my T55. I finagled with it for a bit then I tried the cloth trick. Viola' it worked! Good luck I love mine

Answer: 
Hi David just going through the questions and saw yours We are not supposed to use Vinegar as it's so corrosive to the other parts of the machine.. That's what I've read so far.. only the powder descalers you find at Walmart say in the Coffee brewer Tassimo section.. I will be doing it fairly soon I'm sure as we have hard water in our city.. Best of luck ..
