  1. All you need are 2 Bosch TASSIMO descaling tablets and a container of min. 17 fl. oz.

  3. Remove the Service Disc from the bottom left side of your TASSIMO Vivy machine. Place the Service Disc with the barcode facing down in the coffee machine where your normally place your coffee pod and remove the cup platform.

  4. Place the container under the machine and hold down the start/stop button for about 5 seconds. The descaling program will now begin. The status and descaling displays will flash to indicate the machine is descaling.

 

  1. After approximately 30 minutes, the status and water tank displays will light up. This means the first stage of the process is complete. Empty the container out.

  2. You will need a container with a volume of at least 9 fl. oz and a soft cloth. Reinsert the cup platform. Remove the water tank and clean it with the soft cloth. Fill the water tank to the maximum marking and place it back. Now place the 9 fl. oz container beneath the brew head and press the start/stop button in order to start the cleaning program.

  3. The status light will flash during cleaning. Once it lights up permanently, the program is done. Empty the container and repeat the same cleaning program (from step 6) 2 more times to make sure all the descaling solution is gone.

  4. Once finished, remove the Service T DISC and stow away in the bottom left of your TASSIMO Vivy again. Fill the water tank with fresh water and place it back into the machine. Your TASSIMO Vivy has now been descaled and is ready for use again.
