How do I initiate manual descaling?

If needed, the descaling process may be initiated without brewer notifications. This may be recommended if 1) filtered water has not been used and/or the water is mineral heavy; 2) brewer hasn’t been used for a while; or 3) brewer water flow is slower than usual.

Set up the brewer for descaling per instructions detailed below. 

Then, from standby mode with brewer handle closed, press Americano + 1oz buttons together until 5 beeping sounds can be heard (about 5 seconds). This will force the brewer to start the descaling process.

The Touch Screen will show the Americano + 1 oz buttons solid Blue. Follow the descaling instructions.

The Descaling process may be stopped by pressing the Start/Stop button.

To set up for descaling: Mix descaling solution with one liter of room temperature filtered water and pour into the water tank to maximum fill line. Replace the water tank on the brewer. Be sure there is no B-Pod in the brew chamber and lower the handle. Be sure that the drip tray does not contain excess liquid and is placed on the base. Place at 12 oz or larger mug on the drip tray. Then, from standby mode with handle closed, press Americano + 1oz buttons together until 5 beeping sounds can be heard (about 5 seconds). This will force the brewer to start the descaling process. The Touch Screen will show the Americano + 1 oz buttons solid Blue. Follow the descaling instructions. The descaling process may be stopped by pressing the Start/Stop button.
