SOURCE: Hot water won't flow into machine

We stumbled across a solution to this same problem by filling the reservoir about half full, putting it in place, and reaching down to the bottom (small hands required) to pull the plunger open. The machine was running at the time, set to run water through the filter holder, which had no grounds in it. It may not be necessary to have the machine on. Good luck, Gene

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Espresso maker no longer dispenses hot water from frother

by frother you mean it puts out steam ? if yes then I need to know how long you hold down the button and have you checked the hose in back to see if it has cracks or is kinked?

Do you get coffee? If it is just no water/steam, could be a blockge in the steam wand, or blockage in water lines. First test easy one - the steam wand. If the steam wand is o.k- then check for blockages in water lines/components ( pump, boiler, steam boiler). If you do not feel confortable with testing all the untis where water flows, contact Saeco USA Inc. to locate a Service Center near you at 800-933-7876 (toll-free), ask for customer support, or contact SAECO via e-mail at :

SOURCE: fRANCIS Francis espresso problem..just barely coming out..

Try removing the metal grille from the machine. I don't know the term, but it's held in with a single allen screw on the underside of the machine. Don't use the allen key that FrancisFrancis provide, it's made of soft metal and useless. Buy a decent one.

I did this, and found coffee 'goo' a millimetre thick on top of this sheet of metal. Once I'd cleaned it off it was fine. To clean it, I put it into a cup and soaked it with Mr Muscle oven cleaner, left it for an hour, and then scrubbed it clean. I ran a sewing needle across the back to help clear the pinholes.

SOURCE: The hot water steam knob on my Sirena espresso

I had the same problem. Here is how you fix it.

There are screws behind the water tank. Once these 4 screws are taken out, you can take off the top heat plate of the sirena. Then there are more screws holding down the outerlining from which the heat plate rests on. Take these screws out so that you can take out the outer lining. This will give you full access to the part you need to work on.

Once the machine is open you will need a small allen wrench to tighten the specific part that has come loose. It attached to the axle from which the knob is attached to. Its a metal part that resembles this picture at this link

On this part there is a small screw that needs to be tightened so that it controls how far the knob can turn. When this part spins along with the axle, it will hit a stationary metal block that keeps it from turning too far. You will have to mess with the mechanics of it to figure out what I am talking about. Hope this helps and good luck!

How do i make regular coffe with this machine. The type of coffee you get from cheapest coffee makers. Anyobdy can tell me what settings i need to adjust.

If you need a long cup regular coffee with top quality you should just add hot water in an espresso this called filter cream or americano. If you need the cheap quality as you mention you should adjust the grinder to make the coffee grinding more groase with this coffee will come faster and with pure quality

Not enough steam is produced to make good froth.

I have one too and what I do is: turn all 3 switches on and while I'm waiting for the "ready" light to come on I go ahead and pour the milk into my frothing pitcher and prep my espresso basket.
After the "ready" light comes on I install my espresso basket and turn the handle to the "left" so no liquid starts coming out.
Next, I take an empty coffee cup and hold it under the steam nozzle and start opening the steam valve until I get only steam instead of a stream of hot water. Once you have steam, close the valve, put your pitcher of milk under the steamer and froth as usual to around 150 degrees.

For that one you might have to take the water hose that leads into the pump fill it with water and hold it up while running the hot water cycle to prime the pump.

X1, aluminium: no water filtering through

It is possible that the coffee screen area is blocked, since the steam and hot water work? Try removing the screen and cleaning.

Saeco Gran Crema Espresso does not pump water

The machine needs to be primes.
Please trie and release hot water though the steam nossle.
Do like this
Open the steamer and then trie and make a cup of coffe. this will make the hot water come out thought the steamer instead of the coffe outlet.
Why you should do this is becuse the machine has it alot more easier to prime it self though the steamer then the coffe outlet.
