Replace the water filter
Limescale is killing for your coffee machine. The pipes become clogged, the risk of malfunctions increases, and the coffee taste deteriorates. That is why it's important to place a water filter in the water tank. It filters lime, lead, and other particles from the tap water. You'll prevent limescale and the coffee taste will also improve.
Replace the water filter once every 2 months
Required: Siemens/Bosch Brita water filter
Descale the coffee machine
In addition to using a water filter, you also need to descale the coffee machine. The water filter doesn't stop all the lime. How often you do this depends on the water hardness and how often you use the coffee machine. It's possible that your Siemens automatically notifies you when it's necessary to descale it. This will happen about once every 4 months.
- Descale the coffee machine once every 4 months
- Needed: Siemens descaling tablets
Clean the coffee machine thoroughly
Clean the brew group
You need to clean the brew group of your Siemens every week. You do this by removing the brew group from the machine and rinsing it thoroughly under the faucet with lukewarm water. Don't use any detergent, as it's not good for the brew group. You should also clean the area where you removed the brew group. You'll notice that a lot of coffee residue is left behind. The easiest way is to carefully suck this up with a vacuum cleaner and wipe a wet cloth over it afterwards.
- Clean the brew group once a week
- You don't need a cleaning agent
Degrease and rinse
To prevent blockages, rinse the coffee machine every month. Use an automatic cleaning program and a maintenance product that degreases the pipes of your device. You need this because ground coffee beans leave behind grease, which affects the operation of the machine over time.
- Degrease the machine once a month
- Required: Siemens cleaning tablets
Clean the milk system
Remaining milk residues cause nasty bacteria in your coffee machine. It starts to stink and before you know it, mold will have formed. That is why the machine briefly rinses the milk system after every brew. For a more thorough cleaning, choose the program 'rinse milk system.' We recommend you to do this every week. Simply clean the separate parts, such as a milk tube or a milk reservoir with lid, with soapy water.
- Rinse the milk system after every use
- Clean the milk system every week with milk system cleaner
- Required: Siemens Milk Cleaner
Which maintenance product is suitable for my Siemens?
The Siemens maintenance products are suitable for all models. There are also B-brand maintenance products available. We recommend that you use maintenance products from Siemens, so you'll know for sure that you can clean your coffee machine properly without damaging it.
