What does it mean when the orange light on the front panel is on?


The orange light on the front panel is the descaling light. This light goes on when the appliance automatically detects that you need to descale the appliance.
If you descale the appliance according to the instructions below, the orange descale light will go out.
If the appliance is clogged with scale you need to descale it once more before the orange descaling light will go out.

If descaling does not solve your problem contact Philips Consumer Care => Contact Page

Descaling Instructions:
Use white household vinegar (4% acetic acid) or another descaling liquid to descale the coffee machine.

Note: Never use natural vinegar or white vinegar with an acetic acid content higher than 8%, as this may damage the inside of the coffeemaker.

  1. Fill the water tank up to three-quarters with vinegar (4% acetic acid) and one-quarter of cold water.
  2. Do not put a paper filter or coffee into the filter holder.
    Place the jug and switch on the coffeemaker and let it complete one brewing cycle.
    Repeat steps 1 and 2 twice to make sure no scale is left in the coffeemaker.
  3. Throw away the vinegar/water solution.
  4. Fill the jug with fresh cold water.
  5. Let the coffeemaker complete two more brewing cycles with fresh cold water to remove any vinegar or descaler residues and scale particles. Note: If you use a liquid descaler, follow the instructions on the package, but complete at least one cycle with fresh, cold water.
  6. Clean the detachable parts.
