Saeco S class Incanto Classic was working, but now no steam at all. The pump sounds like it is trying to pump, but cuts out after a coupl of seconds, hot water light comes on, red water light flashes, and...


Check the end of the steam wand and parnello, if both are clear, then descale machine, that might unblock the tubes feeding the booster boiler and the steam wand if it doesn't then you will have to do it manually.

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

Saeco Aroma steemer spit out a lot of hot water


This is normal. The solution is to let the steam wand run for a few seconds to purge all of the liquid water from the system before you begin steaming your milk. It will take about 10 seconds or so. You can do it into the drip tray, into a pitcher or bowl, onto a rag, or even on the counter. The key is not to put your milk under the wand until all of the liquid water is gone and all that is left is steam. Good luck!

Steam still coming through brew group even when pump not ON


I posted response and solution to similar issue see post below and comments :

YOU NEED TO LET MACHINE COOL OFF AFTER YOU TURN IT OFF OUCH!!
You can release pressure placing a cup under steam wand open slowly and partially while machine is OFF and let hiss out slowly. Then open cup slowly if you have to force it open DON'T. That PUCK sound can make you afraid of your machine can't it. I wont admit I haven't done that four or five times.

We have a Saeco Classico that worked very well when we first got the machine. Now the coffee is bitter and there is no crema in the shot at all. We tried changing grinds and tamping, nothing seems to work. Can you help? Thanks so much. We miss our morning coffee :-)

Prime it


1. Open the steam knob all the way.
2. Turn on the pump (coffee Button)
3. Turn on the power to the machine.

The machine will start to pump hot water out from the steam wand. When you get a steady flow, your machine has been primed.

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 : outlet@saeco-usa.com

Problem with steam wand on my espresso machine


Did you try to prime the wand by running water through it for 4 seconds? After you do that it should work fine.
