SOURCE: How do I clean and descale my Schaerer siena 1

Remove the coffee grounds container & leave it out.
Press & hold the cleaning button for approx 5 seconds, you will then see the words " Caution Hot"
Then push the cleaning button once (the one with the plus sign on it) This will start the descaling....I have a Siena-2 & I too could not figure out how to descale, I sent an email to schaerer who sent me an pdf with these instructions which are close to what I was doing. They said it sounds lie I had an older model version - They were very helpful.

Expresso is too large


Nancy, this setting is controlled by the settings menu. You reach that by right arrowing through the different beverages/menu selections until you select "Settings".
  • In settings, scroll to "program the amount"
  • place a cup under the spout
  • select the beverage you want to program, espresso in this case
  • select start
  • select okay when the amount of water has been used
  • the machine will remember this setting for future espressos
  • the same menu structure allows you to control the amount of coffee ground, as well as the amounts for other beverages

Machine turns off too soon


The buttons on the machine are programmable. You've likely inadvertently reprogrammed the button.

Hold the button in until the correct amount of beverage has been dispensed. After that, pressing and releasing the button will dispense the set amount of liquid.

If the espresso coffee outputs too much water and doesn't stop, there is an easy fix. The quantity adjustment for the machine is off. After looking through the user manual, I found out that you could press and hold the espresso button, and then follow the on-screen instructions where you can specify the quantity poured.

Saeco 7P Not Dispensing Product


Rick:

Here are some possible causes:
- for the top five selections (the ones that use espresso), the first sound you hear after making a selection should be the grinder starting. If no sound, check that grinder is receiving 120V.
- do the bottom 2 selections work (the ones that don't require espresso)? If not, inspect the ribbon cables leading from the selector circuit board in the door. The is a sharp edge on the door hinge which could damage these cables.
- if the selector circuit board was ever removed, it may not have been replaced so that pushing the buttons on the door actually depresses the microswitches on the board. To test, verify that you can feel a click when you push each button.
- it might be a circuit board issue. Having two machines allows swapping of circuit boards between machines. Hopefully, you can come up with at least one set of functional boards.
- Good Luck!

When machine is turned on from the off position it does not go into rinse mode message comes up to hot please wait and yet the machine has been turned off for at least 20hrs


the power on sequence for the XP9000 is
1) Internal diagnostic
2) if no cold water, display notice and wait for water level in cold water tank
2) if water heating block is not hot, display notice and wait for block temperature
3) display "Rinse Press Hot Water" notice and wait for button press
4) rinse
5) display "Select Beverage" and wait for button press, ground coffee flap, or other input switch state change.etc...

in short... its doing what its supposed to.

Please consider reading the manual supplied wih your XP9000 or downloading the manual if you don't have it.

After I push the small button to the right to start brewing the machine does not stop on its own, and keeps running.


This issue is typically caused by the Flow Meter near the pump. The Flow Meter is what registers the amount of water dispensing through the machine during any selected function. The malfunctioning of it could simply be that the machine needs to be descaled due to heavy scale build-up or just a small piece of dirt from bad water has become lodged inside it. Another possibility is that the Electronic Card which is basically the brain of the machine is defective. Unfortunately if this is the problem the cards are normally rather expensive.

My CVA620 machine asks to "expel air " but


keep holding the hot water button down until you get a steady stream of water with no air. if you continue to get the error message after the water comes out, you will need to check the flow meter. if water never comes out, you have a leak inside the machine, a pump issue, or a blockage in the water path. That machine uses the same pump for steam and hot water, so if your steam is working, your pump is probably good. Blockages usually occur from not descaling properly. That machine is prone to leak at the hose fittings. the original o rings were black rubber, and failed fairly early. the replacements are red silicone and last much longer.

Small coffee and coffee buttons flashing, hot water button on solid, water tank and priming butten on solid. I can open steam knob and let cold water run all day, but that's all that happens. What's wrong?


HI
Its your flow meter. If you have a restriction in the intake line the message will not go away. There is a flow meter inside the machine that measures water flow. If the flow meter does not spin when the pump is running, the computer thinks that the pump is not primed. Coffee grounds will get into the intake and restrict the flow meter. If you get a restriction in the water intake (below the water tank, on the machine) the pump may run and water comes out, but the flow meter does not create the jet of water to spin the turbine wheel to send impulses to the computer. You get the ventilate message.
You need to take the flow meter apart and clean it or replace it.

Grouphead not dispensing water


Remove the shower screen and press button to brew, if water flows the the holes in the screw/diffuser is blocked, if water does not flow then the blockage is at the solenoid or within the group head chamber. This problem I have notice when someone brewed without the shower and screw in place.

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.
