How to descale my Nespresso machine

Posted by on November 27, 2017 . .

Why Descale?

Descaling your Nespresso machine is necessary from time to time to remove hard water deposits and impurities. We recommend coffee machine descaling at least once a year

Descaling can be done in six easy steps and should take about 20 minutes.

 

Follow these steps:

Prepare your machine

  • Turn on your machine
  • Eject any capsule, empty the capsule container and the drip tray
  • Put in 1 liter of warm fresh water (4 cups) in the water container.
  • Mix in a sachet of descaling solution.
  • Place a container than can hold up to one liter of water under the coffee outlet.


Descale Mode

  • Pixie, Essenza, Citiz and Inissia – simultaneously press on two buttons for three seconds until the lights will start to flash quickly; this indicates the machine is in descale mode
  • U – simultaneously press all three buttons for three seconds.until the lights will start to flash quickly; this indicates the machine is in descale mode
  • Lattisima – put in the descaling nozzle, press the cappuccino button.


Descaling your machine

  • Press the Lungo button and wait until the flow has finished
  • Fill the water tank with the used solution
  • Press the Lungo button and let all the descaling solution flow through the machine again


Rinse

  • Empty and rinse out the water container.
  • Refill it with fresh water.
  • Press the Lungo button to empty the container of its content.
  • Empty and rinse out the drip tray.


Exit the Descaling Mode

  • Pixie, Essenza, Citiz and Inissia – press the two buttons simultaneously for three seconds. The lights will flash for 25 seconds during the preheating mode.
  • U – press and hold three buttons simultaneously for three seconds.
  • Latissima – take out the descaling nozzle.


Your machine is now ready!

 

Note: Be sure to use caution on countertops as this acid formula can have a similar effect as that of lemon juice.
