Question about Saeco Classico Espresso Machine

1 Answer

No water Hi Johnny, I successfully pulled about half a shot on my machine before realizing the water level was too low. It seems the pump then sucked air into the tubing before I could refill the water reservoir. Now the pump cannot draw any water into the tubing! The machine still makes the same sounds as when it was working properly, but I'm afraid I've damaged the pump somehow by allowing air to enter the system. What can I do? Thanks for your help.

Why is it overheating?

Hi, Johnny and the usual suspects are:
1. Low coolant level.
2. Restricted radiator air flow.
3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Coolant pump or fans inoperative.
5. Vent hose crimped.
6. Air in the coolant.
Good luck and have a nice day.

Return port of the intex pump is sucking in water at the top part of the nozzle

If the debris that is getting pulled in is floating, lower the inlet to about 3 to 6 inches under the surface of the water.

I've looked up and read many of the pump problem responses and none of them seem to match my issue. Yesterday my Rancilio Silvia worked just fine. I first want to say that I clean my grouphead often...

Typically when this issue has occurred it is the pump. The pump may still run but there is no suction. This is normal once it fails. There really isn't much else in the machine for this to happen. It's rather simple inside.

What is E no 1 on washing machine wa13G7Q1


Error code 1E means WATER PRESSURE SWITCH ERROR. This error occurs when the Generated Frequency Signal of water level is low or high.
Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
Low Level = 30.00 Khz
High Level = 15.00 Khz
If the Water level is detected as low or high for more than 5 seconds, then it is a PRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 minutes after which you would get this error. To resolve this issue you can try and clean the filter screens inside the water lines. To check this disconnect lines where they go into washer use needle nose pliers to pull out screens clean with water and put them back. This will resolve the issue.

How do I remove air from the pump

Hi .. the air should naturally be sucked out of the leaf trap as the pump is opperating. If it does not fill with water completely there is the posibility that the pump is sucking air through a loose connection, through the skimmer if the water level is low, through the leaf trap lid if it is not completely closed. SO check the water level, remove the leaf trap cover and check the gasket ,, and try again.

Our pool is gurgling and the water level seems low. what should we do.

Add enough water to bring the level halfway up the skimmer. Sounds like it's sucking in some air with water and that's what is causing the gurgling sounds.

Starbucks Sirena. lights blink, won't heat.

johnshami had this solution on another post, and it worked for us:
  1. make sure the water in the tank is stone cold -- which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless it's primed.
  2. take off steamer wand cover, turn the steamer knob clockwise till pump starts.
  3. then s*ck (as you would on a straw, with your lips sealed around the end of the steamer wand) the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops
  4. may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems crazy, but it works! you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump.

Water Pressure Woes

It's not a solution, but the water on our washer here 'trickles down', too...I guess that is normal...But if you have the same brand, you should know those three gray...things...with the black balls in them? They have holes, forming a wavelike pattern...I don't know if that's supposed to Spray, or Drain....Mehh....I stink at solutions...The water level...hmm...just like..a little bit touching the end? :)

Doesnt work when its warm

The pumps in these are low resolution pumps and don't seem to take a lot of stress. We ran the same machine with three groups 362 days a year. You probably need to replace the pump. You should watch your gauges and be pulling 9 - 10 bars when pulling a shot. The top side of your gauges is water pressure coming in. Sounds like a new pump. Good luck.
