Yes. Check the thermostats on the boiler.

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 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 :-)

Heat temp and time

When a machine takes a longer time to heat up, this is often due to scale on top of the heating element, try using a descaler product, and running a descale cycle a couple of time.

If it is not a scale problem, then it is usually a faulty thermostat or a faulty element.

No crema

Sounds like the handle where you put the coffee in needs replacement, if you leave the machine on for long periods with the handle on there is a metal spring inside with plastic parts that regulate the pressure in the tamping basket. 9 BAR is the desired pressure to produce crema. the plastic parts can melt and the spring looses tension. If you place the handle on, lock it, the it should shift slightly backwards on its own if you have to help it I have bad news replacement time. I have seen replacement from 25.00 - 90.00. I have two classicos and already replaced one handle and have to do the next. It could take one time of leaving the machine on all day. Good to get in habbit of turning off the machine immediately after use let it cool slowly attached to unit and clean it when you get home. Immediate cleaining in cold water could make the spring fatigue faster and also cause this problem.
If you are brave and can remember where parts were; take the three screws off where the coffee comes from handle slowly separate the parts and you will see if plastic melted, is distorted or spring is like mush.
Here is the saeco parts diagram and parts ordering site but I warn you its the most expensive - 70k -

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.

Water Too Hot, Coffee Too Watery

Sounds like there is something wrong with the machine. Could be the thermostats or maybe something like an internal leak that is causing the machine to overheat. It sounds to me like you need someone to take a look at it..

Steam jet in Saeco Classico

Try Descaling your machine. A lot of times calcium will form on the inside of the boilers and on the heating elements in espresso machines causing heat transfer issue and clogged lines.

If the heating element cannot transfer enough heat fast enough then your steam will run out.

If you need a good descaler or descaling instruction visit

Saeco Classico is tripping the GFC outlet

Your machine has a bad heating element and is ground out to the boiler ground. You will need to have the boiler rebuilt.


If you need service you can contact Cerini Coffee Services in New York. More information go to or go to saeco's website to find a local service center.


Hope this helps!
