HI, MY MACHINE IS ABOUT 2 AND A HALF YEARS OLD AND STOPPED HEATING. THE GREEN LIGHT WILL NOT COME ON INDICATING ITS WARMED UP, NOR WILL IT MAKE STEAM. THE PUMP WORKS FINE. DURING THE LAST COUPLE OF USES IT MADE SOME POPPING NOISES WHILE HEATING (LIKE PRESSURE NOISES). IM THINKING THE HEATING ELEMENT IS A GONER. ANY ONE KNOW WHERE I CAN GET ONE OR HAVE ANY OTHER IDEAS? P.S. MY MACHINE IS OLDER, NOT DIGITAL AND IS A SAECO. THANKS

from what i can see they have pumpo issues..... try your warranty although i guess that'd be long gone after your many "years" of ownership....
anyway, get an expresso machine, they produce much better coffee by far :)
You have finished the descale process and your descale light should be gone. Put a fresh tank of water on the machine and then open the steam knob. This should clear the water light and your machine will start heating again.
It could be vapor locked like mine was. I have a starbucks barista espresso machine and had the same problem. I called starbucks and they walked me through manually priming the machine from the back to break through the vapor lock.After 2 tries it finally worked and i can use it again. Its a time consuming procedure but worth it.Call them at1-800-334-5553 They are great.
Call Home Espresso Repair in Seattle. I've used these guys a couple of times, and they're wonderful. Once I wasn't getting any steam, and the guy told me how to open up the case and make a simple adjustment of a set screw that probably saved me big bucks.
I was actually just there today to pick up some O-rings for the steam valve. Charged me $1. And that includes replacing them for me (I had removed the stem and brought it in).
My Rio Vapore (earlier version of yours) is now 17 years old, and I give H.E.R. a lot of the credit for that.
Oh, and did I mention that back in the days when Starbucks was small (many moons ago), they were the in-house service center for all the machines Starbucks sold?
Their number is (206) 789-9513.
yea, that happens to me. Try this way....Turn on the Barista, wait til the the steam's green light, then push the steamer button on, wait for a good 1 minute. It should be blowing hot air by then. Good Luck
