Question

I cannot finish the descaling procedure and the warning light keeps flashing quickly.

Answer

This only applies if you started descaling your machine according to descaling procedure version 2.1. 

If you interrupted the descaling procedure 2.1 by unplugging the machine or did not finish all the steps, the warning light "" will keep flashing quickly and you cannot use the machine. 
To make the machine ready for use again, you have to restart the descaling procedure according to the instructions below and follow all steps to the very end of the procedure.

It is really important to follow all the steps of descaling procedure version 2.1 right to the end. If you don’t, you will stay stuck in the descaling procedure.

  3. Fill the water tank with fresh water to the MAX level.

  6. Place a large container under the hot water/steam wand.
  7. Switch the machine back on by pressing the on/off button.
    The machine will automatically start dispensing the descaling solution/ water into the drip tray at several one-minute intervals. It does not dispense through the hot water/ steam wand. This will take approximately 5 minutes. The red " " warning light starts flashing quickly and will keep on doing this throughout the entire descaling procedure. Wait until the green " " light turns on.
