Question about Salton EX20 Coffee Maker, Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Machine makes coffee very slow. I have been using for 1 year.

I have tried cleaning the parts on the outside. Still works very slow. How do you clean the inside? Or could there be some other problem.

Mix 3 parts viniger to 1 part water and run through it a couple of times. Then run plain water through it twice.

Jura impressa s8, the display shows" please wait" and doesn't switch to the Coffee Ready.


This error is because:
1- Flow meter is blocked & not sending signal of water flow.

2- Entire hydraulic system is filled with Calcium deposits and slowed down flow of water.
Solution:
1- Open the machine and manually clean flow meter. It is located between the water tank & the pump.
2- Follow this by manually descaling the machine. Seelink. Do not use automatic descaling method suggested by Jura.
Stop using Filter cartridges as the machine reminders for descaling are silenced by use of filters. Services Unlimited Inc Parts Guru Since 1988

My coffer pot gurgles and it takes 20 min to make a pot of coffee!


I had the same problem with a regular coffee pot. The problem was a large piece of coffee ground that was lodged in the water tube check-valve going to the element. This prevented water from getting to the element quickly enough, and what water did get there mostly turned to steam. We had to remove/replace the tube.

The coffee is very slow coming out.we have decalcified the machine many many times,taken the grindchute assembly out and cleaned it,and now we are running out of options Please help


Coffee coming out too slow could be a number of problems.
I'd start with the grinder and make sure it is set to the right settings. If the coffee's too fine it will cause the coffee to come out slowly.
Next it could be a dirty brew group. The internal part of the brew group has a glass ball inside of it which is used to during the infusion process. Take the ball out and make sure that area is all clean.
Restrictions in that area can cause the coffee to come out slower.
Your next possible scenario is the pump. Vibratory pumps do go bad from time to time, and a bad pump would cause the coffee to come out slow.
If its a newer saeco machine with the J style boiler, it could be clogged due to lack of descaling.

Slow coffee can be caused by any one of these issues. Usually it is the first one.... the grinder settings.
A tip is to never go under the 3 setting under any saeco machine as the machines for some reason cannot handle anything lower all that well.
Also remember these machines are ment to produce an "espresso like" coffee, and not traditional espresso. They are not capable of producing espresso that you would otherwise be able to make in a traditional handle machine.
Hope this helps.

Water flow has slowed down.


remove the spray head and clean it .also run the cleaning spring through the spray head tube this is what makes them slow down is minerals in the water.

1) The coffee you are using may not be ground finely enough to provide a proper extraction time, resulting in water rushing through the ground coffee much too quickly. Think of it like water running through a handful of pebbles as opposed to a handful of sand. You want "sandier" coffee.

2) Your gasket (the rubber part that seals the portafilter to the group head) may be worn/damaged and is leaking water when you are brewing. Attempt to contact FF! or Saeco to secure a replacement gasket. When you are not using the machine, don't tighten the portafilter all the way in to the head, either leave it completely disengaged or only loosely attached. This saves wear on the gasket.

3) Your brew water may be too hot. Purge your boiler right before brewing by running water into a bowl without the portafilter locked in. After a few seconds the superheated water will be run out and you're ready to brew.

Long brewing time


Clean it out with 1/3 caraffe distilled white vinegar and 2/3 caraffe water. Once it is clean, it should take the normal amount of time and will make slightly less noise since it isn't busy steaming off as much water. Also, double-check the filter basket and make sure it is not slowing down the rate of draining coffee.

No water ever makes it through the pump


I just got mine working again. There was scale in the outlet port for the coffee basket.
Try cleaning by running through a solution of CLR and water (1 to 4 parts) and keep running until the blockage dissolves and flow is restored. Then run another solution again just to clean it for good.

MAKE SURE TO RINSE OUT THE RESERVIOUR VERY WELL. Should run clear without foam after about a gallon of clean water.
