How To Reset Ninja Coffee Bar – Is Your Ninja Set Up Correctly?

To work out what is up with your coffee maker it is a good idea to have a thought of the brewing process and where the break-down is happening.

  • Is the machine switching on?
  • Is the water getting pre-heated? 
  • Is the brewing process starting? 
  • Does the brewing process stop? 

The beginning point is to have a good read of the user manual and ensuring your automatic coffee maker is plugged in and power is going to your machine.

Fill your water reservoir to the maximum level and select the brew size that you wish. Double check what filter you are using. It should be a paper filter #4 size. The permanent filter on its own is fine. Focus on the size of your grounds and that they are medium-ground coffee.

Now check out the brew basket and ensure it is in the correct place. Put your carafe in its position and ensure the drip stop lever is in the correct position and to the right.

Run A Cleaning Cycle

A cleaning cycle is something that you should be doing on a regular basis. Cleaning all the basic parts after every use and a basic easy to do rinse cycle by having the coffee basket empty and running a full carafe brew cycle.

This simply keeps your machine in tip-top shape and maintains high quality coffee from your machine.

For this part of resetting your Ninja Coffee Bar run a good proper cleaning cycle by using distilled white vinegar and using a 50/50 water and vinegar solution. If you want, use an even higher 100% solution.

Your aim here is to completely rid your Ninja Coffee Bar of any limescale or mineral deposits. Whatever ratio you decide on, make sure your water reservoir is full. If you have not cleaned it in a while and the clean light has come on use at least a 80% vinegar and 20% water ratio.

Few coffee websites will suggest this. I am because I know the importance of it getting rid of any coffee mold that might be there and the very serious health complications that can occur.

When you are ready, select the full carafe brew size, have your coffee carafe in place and depress the cleaning button and allow the cleaning process to run for about an hour.

Note: You can use a specialist descaling solution if you so want. White vinegar will do the same job.

When you have ran the cleaning cycle, run at least 2 flushing cycles by filling the water reservoir with water. The goal here is to both clean your machine and flush it of white vinegar or descaling solution.

If there was any deposits blocking or clogging your Ninja Coffee bar this clean cycle should have removed any water deposits or coffee deposits.

This descaling process is very important to maintaining your coffee machine and coffee quality. A preventative technique is to use filtered water.

Unplug Your Ninja Coffee Bar

You can complete this reset process by unplugging your Ninja Coffee Bar and leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. And then plug in back in as reset it as you would with a computer. Give it a few moments, typically 5 minutes and brew a cup of coffee.

The objective here is to restore your coffee maker back to the original manufacturers state. If this does not get the job done move to the next step.

Coffee is love, it's more than love — it's a passion of mine. I've had the luck to have travelled and enjoyed the most exotic of coffee's and unique flavors, brewing methods and techniques of making the perfect coffee from Thai hill tribe coffee to Indonesian volcanic coffee, Malaysian coffee that comes in a tea bag and the array of flavors in Vietnam, from Vanilla to Orange to Coconut to Avocado to even salt coffee and the famous egg coffee. The best part of my coffee adventures is getting to mix with the locals over a nice brew and learning how they make it! I'm cited and referenced on Google Scholar for the topic of coffee.
