I descaled my Delonghi 5400 a few months ago and it has been sitting idle except for 3 cups of coffee made in the the last 60 days I've been out of town.

How can I force the Delonghi to skip descale so the alert light no longer shows?

Please keep in mind there is ***NO*** reason to descale the machine. I don't want any suggestions involving descaling. It has made 3 cups of coffee in 60 days after being freshly descaled 70 - 90 days ago. I also put filtered water (not distilled) into it whenever making coffee.

The only thing I can think of is to do a hard reset on the onboard computer.  The owners manual probably doesn't tell you how to do it.  Call the vendor who sold it to you or Delonghi direct for instructions on how to do a reset.  If that information is not available, I guess you will have to bite the bullet and run a descale to get rid of the light.

Good luck.

You could just let it run its descale cycle without actually putting the descaler in the tank. And after that you can change the water hardness setting to the very lowest possible and just keep track of when you need to descale it yourself.
