How do I descale my Senseo Original?

Descaling a Senseo Original is done by treating the machine 2 times with descaler. Then you also rinse it twice with tap water. What you exactly need and how you do this, I explain you step by step.

What do I need?

Descaling a Senseo
  • Bag Senseo descaler
  • Sump with a capacity of at least 1.5 liters
  • Measuring cup
  • Used coffee pad

Descaling

  1. Fill the measuring cup with 1 liter of water and stir in 50 grams of the descaler bag. When the powder is completely dissolved, pour the mixture into the water reservoir of the Senseo.

  2. Place the reservoir back on the machine and place the container under the outlet. Make sure the container has a minimum capacity of 1.5 liters.

  3. Turn the Senseo on by pressing the on / off button. You can see that the machine is warming up due to the blinking light. When the light is steady, the machine is fully warmed up and ready for use.

  4. Place the 1-cup pod holder in the machine and place a used coffee pad here. Close the lid and press the 2-cup button. The machine now starts to run. When the machine is ready, let it warm up again until the light is on continuously. Press the 2-cup button again and let the machine run again. When the reservoir is empty, you are ready with the first descaling cycle.

  5. Now repeat steps 1, 2, 3 and 4 to perform the second descaling cycle. When the tank is empty again, you are ready to rinse the Senseo.

Flush

  1. Rinse the water tank and fill it to the MAX indication with tap water. Put the reservoir back on the machine.

  2. Place the drip tray under the spout and allow the machine to heat up again until the light is steady.

  3. Press the 2-cup button to flush the Senseo with the tap water. When the machine is ready, wait until it is warmed up and the light is on continuously. Press the 2-cup button again to let the machine run again. Repeat until the reservoir is empty.

  4. Repeat step 8 to flush the Senseo with water for the second time.

  5. You are now ready for descaling. Do not forget to throw away the used pad.
