Re: Saeco Incanto Rondo - Lower LEFT Red Light Flashing
Its been a long time since I posted but I just had to answer this one. :)
The left one is a indicator that its time to change your waterfilter,
If you dont have a waterfilter or if you have just changed it, press and hold the steam button for about 5 seconds and then the red light should go way,
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.

• Permanently on (one or more causes): No coffee left, water tank is empty, empty the residual water
tray is full (in this case the dreg drawer also has to be emptied to prevent problems).
• Flashing slowly (one or more causes): Brewing unit is missing, dreg drawer has not been inserted,
coffee container cover has not been inserted, service door is open, rotary knob for opening the hot
water / steam is not in the right position.
• Flashing rapidly:Ventilate the water system
This problem is caused by a clogged water filter in the unit.
Unplug the coffee maker.
Open the top panel where you normally pour in the water and set the coffee filter.
Gently pull up on the tap that sticks up in the back left corner of the open top. This will free a long plastic part that has a compartment at the bottom that contains a filter filled with charcoal.
Unsnap the small compartment that holds the filter and clean it gently under running water with light brushing.
If there is a lot of coffee build-up, the water chamber where you normally pour in fresh water needs to be cleaned out. Pour in a cup of water and invert the unit over a large sink pouring out the water through the opening you normally use to fill the unit.
Repeat this until you remove the coffee grounds.
Let the unit dry fully before plugging in to run again.
Over time, Calcium will deposit on the tubes and containers which get in touch with water.
The calcium can also impact the function of the Heating elements in the percolator tube.
Try Decalcifying with Designated Products.
Usually, you do this by diluting the product, fill up the water reservoir, and cycle on the machine, without cofee of course,
Pour out the water. It will probably look troubled.
If the water does not start percolating, just let the water reservoir stand with the decalcification product for about 30 mins. don't leave it in overnight, because these products are slightly caustic to remove the Calcium, but it could damage parts if left in the machine overnight.
Repeat the process until the water starts running faster and/or gets hotter.
don't forget to rinse with regular water. 2 Cycles rinsing should suffice.
See manual for suggested products or just use 1/4 cup of Vinegar diluted with Water per caraffe. It will smel like vinegar while you do this, as the vinegar evaporates with some of the steam.
I would repeat this process every month or so if you use your machine daily.

Hi, the problem with your machine is with the grinder motor (not working).As soon as you press the coffee the CPU senses the motor is out of circuit and the lights start flashing alternately.
You can test it by doing this. Press and hold the steam button and switch on the machine, you will see the lights going around in anticlockwise direction. Release the button then turn the dial to left (Min) and press the steam button the grinder should work. The dial on the right (Max) the brew group will come up..and half way it will come back to normal position. Press the coffee button in that position will work the pump. Servicecenter can fix this if the machine is less than 2 year old FOC.
We have this problem as well. We simply clean it as directed once or twice with the vinegar and water mix and then unplug for an hour. This resets our machine for several weeks. Based on the number of comments I've seen on this issue, it seems that the "off" sensor doesn't work.
The keypad needs to be programed. Depending on your model there will be a small toggle switch on the right side, just behind the connection of the hot water valve(you will have to remove the top panel). Move the switch to the left, then press the program button at which time all the lights will be lit. Using a measuring cup press a button you want to program until you get the desired amount, then press the stop button(when programed the light will turn off), repeat to program the other 3 buttons. When done program move the toggle switch to the right. If the machine does not hold the program then the flowmeter under the drain tray(silver box with 3 wires on top), is damaged. Either repalce the top or check the impeller in the flowmeter, the magnets might dirty.(Make sure water is turned off before openning the flowmeter.
I have the same problem. It seems that the group motor issues. I ve opened up and found the group motor is coming some sparks. I know very well Saeco Magic Cappucino , Saeco range is more or less the same, Saeco incanto, first time deal with it , somebody just brought it to me to check it. I might fix it if find parts for it.
Load circuit means a lot, flow meter, pomps, could be the electronc board, bewing unit blocked up with coffee, so basically there is no water in circuit water or is air in water circuit....You have to check everything,
