Question about Saeco Incanto Classic Espresso Machine
When I use the steam wand to foam milk and then shut it off to brew the shot of espresso the wand still continues to spit water and drip even though I have turned the knob all the way to the off position.
When I press the single shot of espresso button it is now coming out very watered down it is brewing a full cup of coffee. I have tried to reprogram the cup size but it does not work

SOURCE: Steam coming out from bottom?
It sounds like your steam thermostat is bad and needs to be replaced. Be careful, in this situation the machine will not stop heating and you could get hurt. I would recommend getting the machine repaired or if you would like to try it yourself you can contact us on our website and we would be glad to provide you with the correct part.

SOURCE: Froth control problems
Your vinegar did the job: it as removed the deposits, now these deposits are clogging the four holes porcelain valve.....if the froth lever is not broken.
Remove all the screw you can see on the top and under the top of it, remove the cover, unscrew the frothing device down to the porcelain valve consisting of two 4 holes discs, clean them, and voila!

SOURCE: can't get milk to foam
How long have you had the machine? Use a straight pin and poke the opening of the wand. It may be blocked. If the bottom of the wand can be removed, use some pliers, and CAREFULLY remove it, soak it in hot water. Rinse it thoroughly, and replace it back on the machine. If you cannot remove the wand, turn the machine upside down, and check the opening to the wand. It most likely is stopped up. Run vinegar and water through your machine once a week. Calcium build up does the same thing. Good luck! Happy Lattes!

Place 1/3 part distilled white vinegar and 2/3 part water into the water reservoir. Turn the machine on and wait for the heat light to go off. Once the heat light goes off, turn the steam vs. water knob to the water drop icon, and turn the main function knob to steam/water. Make sure to have your frothing cup underneath the steam element ready to catch the water. The vinegar/water solution should clear out the calcium that clogs the steam element. Also, remove the cover to the steam element and dip it in a bowl with vinegar for about 5 minutes, and use something like a pipe cleaner to clean out that cover. Then apply vinegar and hot water to a rag and clean the calcium off the shaft of the steam element. Once you are all finished with this, run plain water through the espresso maker on the steam/water setting to clear out the bitter vinegar residue. Now, try again to make espresso and froth it.
Since milk contains calcium, the steam element has to be decalcified more often than a regular coffee maker. The EM-100 is a beautiful machine, but it is definitely high-maintenance - you will probably spend more time cleaning it than making cappuccino, etc.
