Question about Saeco Syntia Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker

Open Question

I just descaled my Saeco Syntia and have gone through the rinse cycle twice. I cannot get the machine to exit the rinse cycle, and the display screen no longer lights up.

I have noticed lately that the display does not light up in some modes.

SOURCE: Saeco Odea Giro descaling problem

Ok first check if the machine is in greenlight state when you press and hold the water button, as it will not work when the red exclamation mark blinking.

also check if the button work at all flipping back and forth to hot water and steam.
I have never had this problem that it dident work.
But remember this, you dont have to do the descaling again as that has nothing to do with the reset.
You can even reset the descaling alarm with out having done the descaling.

If that for some reason wouldent work I would think its the CPU card is not working.

SOURCE: Decalcify?

I had the same problem with a Saeco Royal Digital. I ran the decalcifying liquid through the machine with the automatic descaling program as per the instructions on the bottle and the DECALCIFY message stayed up.
I solved it by going to the menu and selecting "Signal Descal." and toggling it from No to Yes. I escaped back to the menu and git the usual "Select Product".
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: saeco wont stop descaling

In service menu there are 2 parameters you should look. First one - descaling - should be on 'done'. The second one is a counter - water used since last descaling - should be on 0.

Why after descaling my new Seaco Syntia coffee machine, it stops while brewing and it requires being primed over and over.


Syntia and Brera machines are made by Saeco. Brera is marketed under the brand name Gaggia (owned by Saeco).
The causes for this malfunction can be due to following in order as stated:
1- The machine was not descaled or it was descaled using products. that are labeled as descaler but they are not. After extended period of not descaling, one may have to use more than one cycle of descaling to remove accumulated depsits of Calcium in the water system.
2- The grind setting of coffee is too fine. Make it coarser by one notch toward coarser setting at a time.
3- The pump is losing its pumping pressure and not pudhing water through the coffee. Replace ULKA pump with an Invensys pump model CP3.
All fully automatic machines are convenient and make classic shots of espresso from bean to the cup at the push of a button. With this simplicity, owners forget its maintenance until machine stops working. Please pay attention to descaling every three months. No excuse is good enough.

Descaling Single Boiler Home espresso machines (HOME SINGLE BOILER ESPRESSO MACHINES)


Approximately every 3 months (depending on your use and the water hardness), clean the machine with natural citric acid based decalcifying agent.
1. Add a descaling solution into the water reservoir. Mix thoroughly to dissolve (use warm water for better results).
2. Remove the filter holder and place a cup under the group head and another cup, or other container, under the steam wand to catch cleaning solution.
3. Turn espresso machine on, turn coffee pump on and run approximately 8 oz. of solution through the brew head. Turn machine off and let the machine sit for 15 minutes.
4.Run approximately 8 oz. through the steam wand, and again, turn machine off and let sit for 15 minutes.
Repeat by allowing solution to run alternately through the steam wand and brew head. Turn espresso machine off after each cycle. Repeat process until solution has been run through.
5. Do not leave espresso machine on. Do not wait for the ready light to come on. Do not use the steam switch during this process. Do not allow reservoir to run empty!
6. Rinse reservoir thoroughly with fresh water. Refill reservoir with fresh water. Run half a tank of fresh water through group head, alternating between group head and steam wand.

Descaled and rinsed the machine. now it is stuck in the rinsing mode. how do we get out of this cycle?


If you are rinsing after doing the descale it has to run out of water. The pump will quit and the rinse should be gone. The you have to go into the menu and select "reset descale" and chose "YES" and then "enter", then you can exit. It will tell you when it needs to be descaled again. Make sure that your water hardness is set to "4".

I have a saeco incanto classic I have tried to descale 2 times and the red light will not go off, is there a reset buttton?


Hi
In order for the light to go off, the machine has to stop pumping on its own, both in the descale and the rinse mode. If you stop it before its done it will still be in the descale mode.
Once it stops on its own, the lights will change. Then do the rinse by replacing the water in the tank and closing and then reopening the steam knob and again letting the machine quit on its own. Again the lights will change. Then repeat the last cycle (putting water in the tank and closing and then reopening the steam knob)until all the red lights go away and you only have a green blinking light. Now your finished descaling a compact without a digital display.

How do I descale my Saeco Vienna Deluxe?


Purchase the Saeco descaler. Mix solution accordingly. Pour into water tank. Run a cappucino cup full of water through the wand. Wait about 20 minute and repeat. Do this until all the water is gone in the tank. (Don't run all the water at once!). Rinse water tank well. FIll with clean water and run through the wand. I do this twice just to be sure I have gotten all the chemical out.
