How To Descale A Nespresso Vertuoline Coffee Machine?

Welcome to the Nespresso VertuoLine machine descaling video.

Nespresso VertuoLine is unquestionably one of the best coffee makers on the market today. " As with other coffee machines, the Nespresso VertuoLine requires routine maintenance and servicing in order to work at its best and offer you with dependably great cups of coffee. As a result, it's critical that you learn how to descale Nespresso VertuoLine components as soon as possible.

For those who are not familiar with the term "descaling," it may appear to be a time-consuming and complicated process at first glance. As it turns out, descaling your Nespresso VertuoLine machine is actually a fairly simple process, but it does require some time and effort.

The VertuoLine machine is equipped with a descaling alert light, which blinks alternately three times and then remains steady if the machine needs to be descaled. 

If you're a member of the Nespresso club, you'll be able to use a descaling kit that's specifically designed for your machine, and you'll be able to see how easy it is to descale it in 20 minutes.

Using the Nespresso descaling solution, add 17 Oz or 500 mL of water to a water tank and mix thoroughly. Start your machine by pressing the button and wait 15 seconds for it to enter the descaling mode after the pre-heating phase.

For at least seven seconds, hold the button down and will begin to blink more frequently. You have 45 seconds to enter descaling mode by following the following steps:

For at least seven seconds, press down the button on the lock symbol on the machines' levers to lock them. To unlock them, turn the lever back to the unlock symbol. In the unlocked position place a container holding at least 20 oz or 600 mL under the coffee outlet to start descaling.

Once finished emptying the water tank drip tray and cup support and thoroughly rinsing them both with soap and hot water.

Rinse the machine by pressing the button, once more than half of the water tank is filled with fresh drinking water.

The machine will automatically stop when it is finished to exit descaling mode. To get it to stop blinking, hold the button for at least seven seconds. De-scaling has been completed.

Before using the machine, allow it to dry for 10 minutes. To continue enjoying your ground crew, you can now use your VertuoLine machine, which has been specifically designed to optimize the Brewing of each blend and ensure that Nespresso coffee quality counts cup after cup.
