A little liquid is always left in the tank.Note: If the process only takes a couple of minutes then you may have run a cleaning cycle by mistake – the machine will not be fully descaled and the red descale light will remain illuminated. If this occurs go back to step 6.
After approximately 30 minutes, when the descaling solution has passed through the system, the status light will be permanently on to indicate that the first stage of the process is complete.
