Hi,

Sorry for the delay, i´m on sick-list and have limited access to computer.

To prime the machine you have to put a container under the steam pipe, open the steamknob on the top of the machine. Let the pump go to there is a steady flow of water then you can close the steam knob again.

I´m not sure if you done this already.
Let me know if i can help you more.

Best regards
/Mirran

Saeco coffee machine with a red blinking exclamation point light won't make coffee, how do I fix it?


When the red exclamation point is flashing slow, something is not where it is supposed to be, bean hopper lid, door, brew mech, water tank empty, dregs box or water tray on dregs container is full. If the red exclamation point is flashing quickly, open the steam valve for pump priming. If pump turns on, and water passes correctly, the light should go off and return to heating stage. If not, we have a blockage or a pump that is not working correctly.

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

Our machine has stopped working....the alarm light is on and flashing slowly so we have gone thru all the steps in the book to find out what is wrong. When we turn the machine on, the green lite goes on...


If red light slowly flashing....Please check brewunit,dregdraw, door and coffeebean lid is properly in .
If flashing fast..means ventilate(prime the machine)
If itis steady..no water in the tank or time to empty the drip tray.or the more serious case the grinder is not working or not self testing.

Not working. Power on but shows a red flashing exclamation. Doesn't start making coffee. Hi! I'd like to ask for help with my Saeco Odea Go V2 that suddenly has stopped working and shows a flashing red exclamation. Looking for some info in the internet I found some disassembly diagrams and some how-to videos. I've realized that the problem is in the coffee brewing unit and have disassembled it following the diagrams to see how it actually operates. I've also activated the Test Mode and operated the brew unit so I noticed that I can put the brew unit all way up. The upper light flashes when it reaches the top but the problem is that a second after it starts its movement from the lower point the exclamation light also flashes and keeps flashing until I put the brew unit back down. It stops flashing a second before it reaches the bottom point and the lower light flashes once. So I've noticed that the trouble is on the lower switch of the two ones that interact with the big gear that moves the brew unit, but I've checked it with a electronic tester and it seems to be working properly, opens and closes the electric circuit when I manually operate it. The upper switch seems to be a limit switch one that stops the brew unit movement in both directions, lifting and lowering. But I don't know exactly what the lower switch is for. I think it could be pre-end switch to change the speed of the movement or so... The fact is that if it is NOT OPERATED (moving or upper point) the exclamation flashes showing the error and the coffee machine doesn't work at all. If it is OPERATED INDEED (only near or lower point) the exclamation stops flashing. May it be causing problems because of a software malfunction or any other matter? I've managed to repair the coffee machine by putting an adhesive tape that blocks the switch as always operated cancelling its function. Not a very stylish solution thought ;- but at least it works!!! Can anyone please give me any clue about the real function of this switch or a way to repair this coffee machine? Thanks everyone for reading and for your help!!!
