Descaling your Philips/Saeco espresso machine regularly ensures great coffee taste and temperature. If the Calc/Clean light starts flashing slowly, it is time to descale the machine. Follow the steps or watch the videos on how to do this at home.
When descaling your espresso machine, only use Philips descaler (Descaling solution CA6700).
Descaling instructions may differ depending on your specific espresso machine's model. For more accurate step-by-step instructions, check the user manual or visit our Coffee Care page for video instructions.
Note: The descaling process can take up to 30 minutes to complete. Once the process has started, it cannot be interrupted.
