HOW TO DESCALE YOUR TASSIMO FINESSE

When the ‘calc’ indicator on your TASSIMO FINESSE lights up and turns red, it’s time to descale your coffee machine. View video on how to descale your machine or follow the steps below.

  1. When you see that the red indicator light is on, it’s time to descale your machine. You’ll need two TASSIMO descaling tablets and a container that will hold at least 17 fl. oz. (500 ml), in addition to a soft cloth.

  2. Take the water reservoir off of your TASSIMO FINESSE and fill it up to the line marked “calc”. Now, fully dissolve two descaling tablets in the water. Place the water reservoir back on the machine.

  3. Take the Service T DISC out from the side of the machine and place it in the brew head, with the barcode facing down, where you would normally place a T DISC. Take the cup stand off of the machine and put a container (that will hold at least 17 fl. oz. or 500 ml) on the tray. Push and hold the Start/Stop button for 5 seconds.

  4. The descaling program will run for approximately 30 minutes and the status light will blink. When the process is complete, the status display will stop blinking and stay lit. Now empty the water from the container.

 

  1. Please use a soft cloth to wipe down the machine. Start by removing the water reservoir, wash it, rinse it, and then fill it with water up to the “max” mark. Place the water reservoir back on the machine. After you have put a container that will hold at least 17 fl. oz. (500 ml) on the cup tray, push the Start/Stop button to begin cleaning the machine. You will know the cleaning process is complete when the status light turns yellow and stops blinking. Empty the container and repeat the cleaning procedure another two times. Now use a soft cloth to wipe off all of the parts of your machine.

  2. Take out the service T DISC and store it in the machine you'll need it the next time you clean your coffee maker. Fill the water reservoir and place it back on the machine. Put the cup stand back into the correct position. Now, your TASSIMO FINESSE is ready to be used.
