  • If the descaling cycle is not completed correctly. For example if there was a power cut, we recommend repeating the cycle.
  • After descaling, it is normal for the grounds container to contain water. If the water tank has not been filled to the MAX level, at the end of descaling, the appliance requests a third rinse to guarantee that the descaler solution has been completely eliminated from the machine’s internal circuits. Before starting the rinse cycle, remember to empty the drip tray.
  • The appliance may request descaling cycles at very short intervals. This is due to the appliance’s advanced control system and is part of normal operation.
