SOURCE: Saeco Odea Giro descaling problem

Ok first check if the machine is in greenlight state when you press and hold the water button, as it will not work when the red exclamation mark blinking.

also check if the button work at all flipping back and forth to hot water and steam.
I have never had this problem that it dident work.
But remember this, you dont have to do the descaling again as that has nothing to do with the reset.
You can even reset the descaling alarm with out having done the descaling.

If that for some reason wouldent work I would think its the CPU card is not working.

SOURCE: saeco wont stop descaling

In service menu there are 2 parameters you should look. First one - descaling - should be on 'done'. The second one is a counter - water used since last descaling - should be on 0.

SOURCE: My Saeco Italia is stuck in the descaling mode.

I had this problem too. I was beside myself wondering what to do. I took the machine apart but there was nothing wrong. It was stuck in an infinite descale cycle. The 5 green buttons never blinked to say it was done. What finally fixed it was to close the steamer valve to where water was being being restricted from the steamer wand but still a little water was spurting out. It finally quit emitting water and the 5 lights blinked and the infinite descale cycle completed. This model espresso maker was a lemon and been nothing but problems.

Why after descaling my new Seaco Syntia coffee machine, it stops while brewing and it requires being primed over and over.


Syntia and Brera machines are made by Saeco. Brera is marketed under the brand name Gaggia (owned by Saeco).
The causes for this malfunction can be due to following in order as stated:
1- The machine was not descaled or it was descaled using products. that are labeled as descaler but they are not. After extended period of not descaling, one may have to use more than one cycle of descaling to remove accumulated depsits of Calcium in the water system.
2- The grind setting of coffee is too fine. Make it coarser by one notch toward coarser setting at a time.
3- The pump is losing its pumping pressure and not pudhing water through the coffee. Replace ULKA pump with an Invensys pump model CP3.
All fully automatic machines are convenient and make classic shots of espresso from bean to the cup at the push of a button. With this simplicity, owners forget its maintenance until machine stops working. Please pay attention to descaling every three months. No excuse is good enough.

Saeco syntia ground coffee chute not working well


The grind on the coffee might be too coarse and instead of making espresso its coming out like drip coffee because the water is running through it too fast.

Hello , I got a present of a Saeco Royal Professional without an instruction booklet . The machine tells me it needs a descale . Can you please advise as to how . Many thanks , Sean Kavanagh


Hi
Auto descale: To automatically descale your machine, press the scoop button and hold it down until you enter the menu. Use the arrows on the left to scroll down until you come to "Descale". Press enter and the machine will enter the mode to descale your machine. The process takes about 45 minutes. You don't have to do a thing except mix a full water tank with descaling solution and have a container under the steam wand when your start. If you have a cappuccinonatori on your machine you will need two containers. To start the descaling process simply turn the steam knob. When the process is over your machine will say "descale finished". Remove your water tank and rinse it out. Refill it with fresh water. Replace on the machine and close the steam knob then open it again to rinse your machine. When its done exit the descale mode and go to the "Reset descale" just under it and enter. Choose "Yes" and push the enter button to accept. It will tell you when it needs to be descaled again.
If you want to make your machine last a long time, go to the water hardness in the menu and change your water hardness to the #4 and always push the enter button if you want to make your changes permanent. If you don't, no changes will be made and it will still be the same when you exit.

Looking for instructions on cleaning and servicing the Saeco Royal


Hi,

When you clean the brewing unit wash it with hot water, do not
use any solvent.

Make sure there are no coffee residues on the two steel filters: the upper filter can be removed by unloosening and turning the plastic pin anticlockwise using the tool supplied.
Dry thoroughly each central unit component, fit the filter again and tighten it properly with the screw .

To do a descaling:
Saeco descaler is recommended; however, you can use any non-toxic and/or non-harmful descaling product for coffee machines, commonly available in retail stores. The used solution is to be disposed of according to the manufacturer’s
instructions and/or regulations in force in the country of use.

Never use vinegar!

Best regards

How do I descale the saeco magic deluxe coffee machine?


Hi,

Try this:

Standard descaling
Switch off the machine.
Pour a descaling product into the water tank.
Switch the machine on to the programming mode(see below). Place a large container under the steam/hot water dispensing tube and open the steam/hot water knob slowly, turning it counterclockwise.
Turn on the machine by pressing the main switch and let the descaling product flow out of the dispensing tube for approx. 1 min.
Close the knob again.
Turn off the machine with the main switch and let the solution take effect for approx. 5 minutes.
Repeat this procedure two or three times, to allow all of the descaling product in the water tank to flow out of the dispensing tube.
As soon as descaling has been carried out, rinse the tank thoroughly and fill it with fresh water.
Switch on the machine and let fresh water (approx. 2 l) flow out of the steam/hot water dispensing tube in order to rinse away residue.
The machine is now ready for operation.

When the machine is on, the warning light switches off automatically, by pressing the steam selection button for at least 5 seconds.

To enter the programming mode, turn the machine
off with the main switch.
Press steam , espresso coffee and the
main switch at the same time.

Release the buttons.

Hope this will help you.

I want descalcificacian saeco easy sup 021ye what butons y press?


Hi,

Warning! Never use vinegar as a descaling agent. You can use any commercially available non-toxic, non-harmful descaling product for coffee machines.

Descaling is necessary every 2 months; should water be very hard, descale the machine more frequently. The machine must be on; it automatically controls the distribution of the descaling solution.
  1. Switch off the machine.
  2. Fill the water tank with the descaling solution.
  3. Place a large receptacle beneath the steam tube.
  4. Switch on the machine.
  5. Open the knob.
    The descaling process starts.
  6. Dispense the descaling solution into the receptacle.
  7. After about 30 seconds close the knob.
  8. Switch off the machine and remove the receptacle.
  9. After 10 minutes, follow instructions 1 to 8 to the water tank is empty.
  10. Rinse out the tank and fill it with fresh drinking water.
  11. Place a large receptacle beneath the steam tube.
  12. Switch on the machine.
  13. Open the knob to rinse.
  14. If the receptacle fi lls, empty it.
  15. When no water is left, turn the knob to close the valve.
    Remove the container.
After descaling the machine, reload the machine circuit. Install the cartridge filter again in the water tank.
