After descaling my Saeco Intuita the "calc clean" button keeps flashing
If your Saeco Intuita espresso machine “calc clean” button keeps flashing after completing the descaling process, there might be a simple cause.
The CALC CLEAN button is flashing slowly, the NO WATER light is on, and the HOT WATER button flashes
You have not filled the water tank up the MAX level with fresh water before you started the rinsing cycles.
In this case you need to:
Fill the water tank up to the MAX level with fresh water and place it back into the machine. The No water light will turn off, the and the button keep flashing
Place back the large container under the steam/hot water wand and the dispensing spout
Press the flashing Hot water button to perform another rinsing cycle
The machine starts dispensing the water through the steam wand until the water tank is empty. This takes about 3-5 minutes
When the descaling procedure is completed, the Calc Clean light and the Hot water button turn off and only the No water light stays on Important: If the “CALC CLEAN” light keeps on flashing, please repeat the steps 1 till 5 one or two more times until the CALC CLEAN light turns off.
Rinse the water tank and fill it up with fresh water
The machine starts warming up and perform an automatic rinsing cycle
The machine is ready for use again
You switched the machine OFF / or unplugged it during the descaling proces
Fill the water tank with fresh water to the MAX level
