TASSIMO System Maintenance


The first step to making sure your TASSIMO Single Cup Brewing System makes you the perfect cup every time is keeping up with the maintenance. It will help you achieve consistent drink quality and prolong the life of your brewer!

How do I set up my TASSIMO brewer?

Whether your TASSIMO Single Cup Brewing System is new or has not been used for several weeks, it is necessary to start up the system by using the Service T DISC, stored in the compartment at the rear or side of the brewer, and to rinse the water tank with fresh, clean water.

Detailed instructions can also be found in the Manual or Quick Start Guide.

Once you've done that, fill the tank with water, select your cup, insert your choice of T DISC into the brewer, and press the button!

How often should I clean my TASSIMO brewer?

It is recommended to insert the re-usable Service T DISC (supplied with the machine upon purchase and stored in the side or rear of the unit) in the brewer every seven days. All removable parts can be washed by hand and all but the water tank are dishwasher-safe.

How do I keep my TASSIMO brewer clean?

The barcode reader should be cleaned with a damp soft cloth regularly. All of the removable parts are hand washable. Except for the water tank, all parts are also dishwasher safe.

How do I descale my TASSIMO brewer?

You need the Service T DISC and a descaling agent in order to descale the brewer. Use descaling agents outlined in your brewer manual.

Detailed instructions can also be found in the Manual or Quick Start Guide.

What does it mean when the red indicator light stays on?

The descale indicator light remains illuminated red when the brewer needs to be descaled. Descaling the machine will keep it in top condition ensuring your drinks are brewed to the highest quality, time after time.

Detailed instructions can be found in the Manual or Quick Start Guide.

Note: On the older-generation Braun brewers, there is no descale warning. Descale your Braun TASSIMO brewer every three months to keep it operating at full potential.

What does it mean when the red indicator light is blinking?

The water tap indicator light flashes red when the water tank needs to be refilled, the water level is too low to make a drink, or when the tank is not in place. Always refill the tank with clean, fresh, non-carbonated water. Never use chemically softened water.

Detailed instructions can be found in the Manual or Quick Start Guide.

Note: On the older-generation Braun machine, all the indicator lights flash when the water tank is empty.
