TASSIMO FINESSE descaling instructions

When your TASSIMO FINESSE 'calc' display lights up red, you should descale your coffee machine. Watch the descaling instruction video or follow the steps below.

  2. Remove the water tank from the side of your TASSIMO Finesse and fill it up to the marking “calc”. Add two descaling tablets and wait until they are fully dissolved. Insert the water tank back into the machine.

  3. Remove the Service T DISC from the side and insert it with the barcode facing down in the coffee machine where you would normally place a T DISC. Remove the cup stand and place a glass (that will hold at least 17 fl. oz.) on the tray. Press the Start/Stop button for 5 seconds.

  4. Once started, the descaling program will last for about 30 minutes and the status light will flash. Once the process is finished, the status display will light up. Now, empty the glass.

The cleaning process is finished when the status display lights up yellow and remains lit. Empty the glass and repeat the cleaning process two more times. Then wipe all parts with a soft cloth.

  2. Remove the service T DISC and stow it away in the machine since it will be needed throughout the life of your machine. Fill up the water tank and insert it back into the machine. Place the cup stand back. Your TASSIMO FINESSE is now ready for use.
