Question about Saeco Incanto Rondo RS SBS Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Slow Brew...calcium Hello. For all the same settings, my machine is only delivering about 1/4th as much coffee in the cup and it brews slow when it does this. This change occurred very rapidly (like in one day). I assume descaling was needed. I did this with no improvement. I then pulled off the back of the machine and pulled off some of the hoses inside the machine to remove any obvious blocks... there did seem to be a few bean fragments. I put the machine back together... but no improvement. Note that water coming out of the wand also sputters versus giving a nice even stream like it normally would. Any suggestions? I though maybe the boiler had too much scale for the descaler and thus maybe needs to be pulled out and cleaned. Is there a repairmans manual that I could get to do this myself? thanks. Dave

It is possible you need to use descaling solution and perform another descale. Are you using a good descaler? I recommend Parts Guru Best Descaler, instead of something like Dezcal. Do you know which hoses you pulled off? The very thin ones should never have bean fragments, but the bigger silicone tube from the water tank may accidently have some fragments. These can clog the flow meter and decrease the coffee output as well as the steam output. But usually the machine will give a Ventilate warning and not put out any water. Look on the Parts Guru website for machine diagrams.

SOURCE: How do I descale the boiler etc

There are two good ways to descale anything that heats water for food/drinks. The easiest to get is white vinegar. Just put the vinegar in where you normally put water and run the unit until it runs normally. It may take ten or more times to get it cleaned up. Sometimes filling it and then letting it sit overnight makes it work faster, but if it's been a long time, you may need to be patient. The other chemical you can use is citric acid. It works faster but is more difficult to get.

Either way you'll need to run several cycles of water through after you get it clean to remove the taste of the vinegar or citric acid.

SOURCE: Descaling

No, it does not quite clean both boilers, even though they are connected, you will have to use the preground chute if your machine has one, if not then grind and brew method will work. The reason, you want to get some of the cleaner through the white plastic valve behind the brewunit and the fitting that connects it to the boiler.

If you have had this machine for awhile sounds like there is calcium deposits built up. Try cleaning the disbursement head as well as the tube. also run some vinegar through the system a couple of times.Let me know if this helps.

Slow brewing


The coffee maker has three contributory factors for brewing experiences. First, putting enough water in container prior to brewing is expected to dispense in to coffee capture cup. Second, installing the component parts after inserting coffee leaflets should not hinder brew seepage into the cup. Third, allowing enough time for the brew to dispense is a requisite means to coffee impressions. Furth, coffee leaflets require appropiate numbers inserted at the container area lest the machine takes time to sock and dispense. However, refer to the device user guide for appropiate manufacturers instructures to user as expectations during brewing. Also, refer to the user guide to ascertain any conditions that may be signs of damage preventing fast brewing.

Keurig starts & stops without brewing coffee, just descaled


The pic is clogged with coffee or the air bladder is bad. Use the tool on the underside of the tray to clean out pic. If that doesn't work, the bladder will be bad.

Coffee maker won't brew


This one has two AUTO dial settings - AUTO-ON and AUTO-OFF. AUTO-OFF merely keeps the hot plate warm for a fixed period of time. AUTO-ON is the one that allows your coffeemaker to go off at the pre-programmed time in the morning.

If it is set to AUTO-ON, but is not brewing at the set time, unplug the machine for longer than 20 minutes. Then plug it back in, reset the clock, reset the prog time for a time that is just a few minutes into the future, and then test the auto-on feature.

If it stil ldoes not brew, just turn the machine to brew and press on. If it brews a pot, then your problem is electrical. If it doesn't brew a pot on the regular brew setting, then you either have: A) Calcium buildup/clog, or B) a hose leak (or worse).

To rule out the calcium buildup possibility, let half a caraffe worth of vinegar sit in the water reservoir for about an hour. After the hour, turn it to brew and press on, and brew the vinegar just as if it were coffee. If the vinegar goes through, your problem is solved.

Otherwise, call Cuisinart and find out if you are still in-warranty. Thep roduct has a 3-year warranty.

Good luck!

Braun Flavor Select will not brew coffee.


I assume You are talking about the water-brewing heater thereare two, the second is the heater that warms the coffee pot (I think!). When the water-heater is encrusted with calcium deposits it "thinks" that the water reservoir is emptyand ceases the brew cycle. water boils at 212 degF and the heater will go to a much higher temperature. I will leave you with the same solution as was posted to another problem that may have similar cause:

I have the same machine, Braun KF180 12 Cup Coffee Maker. In normal operation the brew cycle is stopped when the water reservoir is empty. The only way the coffee maker knows if that is true is when the water-brewing heater gets too hot. Your brewing heater is probably encrusted with calcium deposits if you have been heavily using the coffee maker. Vinegar will work but it is weak and you will have to cycle this solution through many many times. You should instead use "Lime Away" or "CLR" and let it sit there in a brew cycle or multiple brew cycles for a while. NOTE: Remove the filter when cleaning this way and when the brew cycle is complete, rinse thoroughly -- your taste buds will let you know if the machine is not rinsed thoroughly. -- Good Luck!!

Brew time


this is not the norm. Sounds like a blockage problem. Descale the machine twice!!!! one after the other. and that should take care of it
