Clean light on kitchenaid kcm112 won't go off

I have descaled and "clean" is still present on panel. Not flashing just there all the time. Read the manual and gives me the impression should show on panel only if needs cleaning.

I found that the following clears the "clean" word that is flashing:

  1. Hold MODE and the + button for about 5 seconds.
  2. After the coffeemaker chimes 2 times, release the buttons.

Hopefully, the clean message will go off.

As an aside, the warmer plate is so awful looking. I am replacing this coffee maker (KM222) with another (and cheaper) one.

SOURCE: Solis Palazzo Descaling (?) Problem? Please Help!

Hi
He has the first part correct, but when you rinse the machine with fresh water the machine needs to quit on its own and you will know this when the descale light is off, but you will have a flashing green light and a steady red light over the water drop. Refill the water tank, the close the steam knob and then open it again. This will clear the red light and then the machine will start heating. IMPORTANT on any automatic machine is when the water tank is off the machine don't do anything with the beans. A chip of bean in the water receptacle can be a big problem for the machine.

Unplug the unit for 30 minutes or longer - it should reset the coffeemaker and the clean light.

Clean keeps flashing even when I've cleaned


External visual cleaning is not enough.
The coffee maker needs internal cleaning.
Please descale the machine to remove the error message.

Do i need to put the yellow disc in to descale lost my manual


https://www.tassimo.ca/en/customer-care/#product-manuals-and-guides

at the above link you will find tassimo manuals
and yes you do need the yellow disc as it has the right bar codes for the descale cycle.
If the manual for the model you have is not available, just read one of the manuals descale sections to refresh your memory, I know I forget how in between descaling sessions

Red triangle will not stop flashing even after I descale


Hi,
I have the Illy coffee maschine x7.1 and I'm trying to do the descaling (since the litle triangle sign is flashing), but power button doesn't start flashing after I push the coffee and steam button together (as indicated in the manual). Any suggestions what I should do, that the on/off button would start flashing?

Clean light is flashing


please read your instruction manual and go the section troubleshooting
press down the overfill protection float on the floor of the dishwasher's tub in the right, front corner near the door. If it cannot move up and down freely, the "clean" light will flash.
