Hi folks, I know there's not much love for Jura in these parts, and deservedly so, but I was hoping you might lend a poor fellow a hand. I got a few-year-old Impressa F7 as a hand-me-down last year and have been desperately trying to keep it alive until I can afford something better (with a toddler in the house and another kiddo on the way, Oscar's not coming any time soon...just when I need good coffee the most!)
I've taken it apart several times to fix various "open tap" errors and clean out detritus, replaced the steam valve and given up on the grinder entirely, but now I'm stumped - the machine tells me it's ready for a descale, but it won't let me initiate the descaling program. I've done both the descaling and cleaning routines in the past, but for whatever reason this time it just won't go into the auto-descale mode. Could I do a manual descale (and eventually cleaning)by putting the proper tablets in the reservoir and simply running a ton of rinse & steam cycles, then flushing with fresh water? I know it'll blink "descale" forever, but at least I'd have a clean machine. Thoughts? Many thanks!
When it's demanding a descale, what does it do when you push the rinse button? Does it rinse instead of starting into descale, or does it do nothing? How about if you try to force a descale on it by holding the rinse button when the power is off?
Is it possible that the rinse button is not working?
Thanks for the reply - that's a great tip! I had pressed the rinse button endlessly when it was flashing Descale, and it just did a normal rinse, but I hadn't thought to do it with the machine off. Tried this morning and it looked like it was going into descale mode, so I'll give it a go when I get home this evening. Many thanks!
