Question about Starbucks Saeco Italia Digital Barista Coffee Machine

Saeco Digital Italia internal steam hose

I have a 2 year old Digital Italia that has leaked water almost since it was new. When you use the steam wand, you can hear steam escaping inside the machine. Now I think the steam hose has completely blown off where it attaches to the steam valve inside. I took the top off but can't see how to access where the hose attaches to the valve. Any diagrams or ideas for how to fix this are sincerely appreciated.

I have a Saeco Italia Digital Barista and we've used it for years every day and loved it. Unfortunately, it has started leaking water inside and dripping out under the machine I've tried descaling,...


Its probably a loose hose or a failed O ring. You can take it apart and probably find the problem and fix it if you are handy. As it is don't use it. It's dangerous. You cold get a shock. Unplug it and either repair it or take it in to someone who handles Saeco. Their website lists repair facilities.

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

Why would there be internal leaking into the tray


Never use vinegar to clean your machine. It is possible that the orings are worn out on the brew unit.

Water leaking from steam hose on Saeco Italia


There is a part that the hose connects to and it is made of plastic. The plastic on mine had a tiny split in, which caused it to leak. I got a replacement one made of brass and that problem is fixed. Now my machine is broken in another way and I am hoping to get it fixed. What a piece of junk!!!

Super espresso machine leaking


Hi
Your steam manifold needs to be replaced. I still have the original in mine but if you don't cool them down after steaming they will develop hair line cracks and leak after while. To cool it down after steaming push the steam button again, then open the knob and run it till you have a steady stream of water, then close the knob.
The replacement manifolds are black and have held up very well but they have a brass manifold re[placement but you will need new mounting hardware.

Saeco italia error


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