Troubleshooting

How do I descale my Saeco Intelia espresso machine?

Descaling your Saeco Intelia espresso machine helps to keep it in optimal condition. Learn how to do this yourself easily.

Before you start the descaling cycle

  • The complete descaling process takes about 30 minutes and consists of a descaling cycle and rinsing cycles
  • Once started, the descaling procedure must be performed in full
  • Use Saeco/Philips descaling solution CA7600 or CA6701. Never use vinegar as a decalcifier

Before you start:

  • Empty the drip tray
  • Have a container available to collect the water during the descaling process
  • Remove the INTENZA+ water filter from the water tank (if installed)
  • Remove the Pannarello/Cappuccinatore/Automatic milk frother (if installed)
  • For machines with a milk carafe, insert the milk carafe filled with fresh water up to the min. level
