are you there?
how old is your coffee maker?
over 2 years?
over 1 year
when you try to run a cycle what exactly happens?
the lit up cup shows red
does it make any sounds like its trying to brew?
was the water stream weak just before this happened?
don't understand question
when you were making coffee before this problem, did it take longer to brew or was it fine?
it was fine
thank you, ***** ***** live in a hard water area?
I live in Brighton not sure if hard water area
hi thanks yes it is a hard water spot
in this case, your coffee maker may be still covered under the manufacturers warranty for up to 2 years
but please try this a few times to see if it will clear the blockage
Make a mixture of 3 cups white vinegar to 6 cups water-- enough to fill the pot. For a stronger solution (which might be necessary if this is the first time you've cleaned your coffee maker since you got it three years ago) make a mixture that is half vinegar and half water instead. Here are some alternative mixtures:
if this doesnt help but it should, you would need to contact Bosch on this for repair
I have tried to descale according to manufacturers instructions but to no avail
please try my suggestion, it works much better;-)
I use, 50 % white vinegar and 50% water to do this and I let the solution sit overnight the first time to be sure it has enough time to clear the blockage
ok. how much vinegar should I use and should I remove the water filter first
yes remove any water already in the machine.
use, 50 % white vinegar and 50% water
on this machine you should have a 75% success rate after doing this.
I will stick with you until the unit is fixed properly.
