Question about Saeco Classico Espresso Machine

1 Answer

No Water Flow/No Water Draw

I haven't used my Saeco espresso classico in a couple of months. When I tried to prime the machine no water came out. There is no water being drawn into the intake tube. Additionally I opened the cover and did not see any cracks, holes or leaks in the intake tube. Finally I do get hot air out of the steamer. The only thing I can think of is that the pump is dead. Althought it looks and sounds like it is trying to work. Any suggestions? Also where do I go to get replacement parts or service for the machine? Thanks.

    Haven't used my Saeco Classico for about a year. Trying to prime it, the pump seems to run, but no water is being drawn up the tube.

    Water is being drawn into the sytem when the steam switch is on and the steamer valve is open. When the brew switch is on, no water comes out although the pump sounds as if it is functioning. The ready light of the brew switch randomly turns off and on. Occasionally I'll see a very small amount of water drip from the brewing head.

My Saeco Classico has problem. The pump is working

It sound as though the boiler is blocked by scale. May also be the coffee filter that's blocked. I am not familiar with this machine, but assuming that it's just a manual espresso machine, try running it with the filter handle removed. Any water emerging? If so, the coffee filter cup and/or filter handle outlets may be blocked. If there is only a small flow the boiler is almost certainly blocked with scale and descaling may cure the problem (do the first run with the filter handle off the machine. Next run with it on)

Connect Saeco Incanto Classico machine directly to water source

In our shop we come off the treated water supply with a water pressure regulator (adjusted to a very low pressure)and use a barbed fitting to connect to the hose inside the machine. You should be able to do something similar by removing the water tank seat on the body of the machibne and using the existing hole to connect your water. If you need something more specific contact

No flow of water

You can use any readily available tubing, but don't use sealants - they make their way into the water.

Prime it

1. Open the steam knob all the way.
2. Turn on the pump (coffee Button)
3. Turn on the power to the machine.

The machine will start to pump hot water out from the steam wand. When you get a steady flow, your machine has been primed.

Water Too Hot, Coffee Too Watery

Sounds like there is something wrong with the machine. Could be the thermostats or maybe something like an internal leak that is causing the machine to overheat. It sounds to me like you need someone to take a look at it..
