Descaling the PrimaDonna Elite Experience ECAM650.85.MS

Recommended Posts


I have noticed something in the descaling process and wondered if this is normal. 

When we start the descaling cycle, the hot water first comes out of the coffee spout for maybe 30 seconds and then ONLY comes out of the steamer spout after this for the remainder of the cycle. 

When coming out from the steamer spout it comes out in single bursts repeated for around 2 minutes and then is totally silent with no action from the machine for around 2.5 minutes.  Then follows the 2 minute bursts from the steamer spout and is repeated until all the descaling liquid is used up. 

This seems a little odd since with my last coffee machine the descaling liquid would drain by cycling between the coffee spout and the steamer continually through the cycle. 

Therefore I’m keen to understand if my machine is behaving normally or if there is something wrong. 

Any advice gratefully received.
