Question about Starbucks Saeco Italia Digital Barista Coffee Machine

Open Question

Saeco Barista Italia Digital won't stop calling for prime even though it primes just fine.

After descaling, it calls for prime. I have run 4 tanks of water through the prime and it still indicates that it "Needs to prime."

i had this same problem and it turns out a small mineral deposit was lodged in the water line, right before it went in to the second heater (to make steam). The cost to repair and shipping was pretty high, so i fixed it myself and it's not too hard. You can try de-scaling. If you want take the water line apart, let me know and I'll walk you through it.

To prime the pump run the hot water cycle for a few seconds, also when inserting the tank on the machine make sure it slides down the back making contact that will help the reed sensor, find the magnet in the float.

You could have a seized water pump if you haven't been descaling regularly. Take the pump out and disassemble, clean, reassemble. Work carefully as there are several small parts.

Flashing lights on my saeco italia espresso machine


I had the same problem, two green flashing lights with one red (water) all 3 would just keep flashing and not turn solid. No coffee can be made or hot water. I could not pump prime. The problem was the steam wand was blocked with old milk residue. It needs unblocking or you will never pump prime. I could not unscrew the steam wand...so I let it sink in a glass full of hot water for a few minutes and then turned the water knob counter clockwise to push out the softened residue. After that, everything was good. When water started flowing out of the steam wand, the red light turned off and the green lights turned solid. The obvious answer to why you can't pump prime is there is a blockage somewhere and best to start with the steam wand. --Mabada

"NEED TO PRIME" alert is on. Have run a couple of tanks of water through the wand making hot water, but still says NEED TO PRIME. The pressure on the water seems a little lower than normal. Tried to...


That message indicates that water lines may be dirty. How long ago or how often had you descales your machine? If you have not routinely descaled then the water lines have to be cleaned ( by opening the machine) manually and/or replaced. Another possibility if you have been descaling it regularly, is that a water line may have small crack. And yet another possibility is that the pump may be going bad and/or the flow meter is clogged ( needs cleaning and/.or replacement). Best suggestion at this time is to have an Authorized SAECO Service Center check your machine. Contact Saeco USA Inc. to located a Service Center near you at 800-933-7876 (toll-free), ask for customer support, or contact SAECO via e-mail at : outlet@saeco-usa.com

Need to Prime


Something was in the water lines and the force of the pump pushed it through. Make sure from now on you descale your machine regularly.

What happens when you open the knob on the right? It may just need priming.
