Saeco Italia water lite and green lights flashing

My water light was flashing so I filled it and now the green lights that flash initially while it is heating up as well as my water light flash continuosly - it doesn't stop after the ususal 2 minutes.

I called Starbucks help line and was told they weren't open to 6AM (long gone by then) so I waited until 6AM one morning and found out it was PST! Then when I got through during operating hours, they said the non starbuck Italia had to be handeled by Saeco! ARGH!

    The water tank was empty and I was filling it as I used it. Now two green lights are flashing and the water light is on. Won't pull shots/steam. Will run cold water if steam wand is opened up.

    I have the same problem - my Saeco ran out of water while making a cup of coffee. Unfortunately, my steam wand only works intermittantly, and now is one of those it's not working. Have had the knob turned to fully open for over an hour, and not one drop of water has come out.

Hi,

Try to open the steam knob and make a cup of water (tea), see if you can get a full cup or just a half.

How old are your machine?
How often do you descale the machine?

Best regards

Flashing lights on my saeco italia espresso machine


I had the same problem, two green flashing lights with one red (water) all 3 would just keep flashing and not turn solid. No coffee can be made or hot water. I could not pump prime. The problem was the steam wand was blocked with old milk residue. It needs unblocking or you will never pump prime. I could not unscrew the steam wand...so I let it sink in a glass full of hot water for a few minutes and then turned the water knob counter clockwise to push out the softened residue. After that, everything was good. When water started flowing out of the steam wand, the red light turned off and the green lights turned solid. The obvious answer to why you can't pump prime is there is a blockage somewhere and best to start with the steam wand. --Mabada

You can't manually reset. The machine will have to do it. I had the same problem, two green flashing lights with one red (water) all 3 would just keep flashing and not turn solid.

Saeco italia has front red light explanation


This red light is to indicate if the water tank needs filling, if the bean hopper needs filling, or if the brew unit is not in the unit (after cleaning) or not in the correct position.

Saeco italia error


What happens when you open the knob on the right? It may just need priming.
