Seaco Giro Quick Flashing Red Alarm

Hi,
I know this means it has to be primed. I do that and water/steam both dispense just fine. However it will not brew the coffee. It starts to, and very little espresso comes out. Then the alarm goes off and the hopper on the side is full of water and the spent puck. I could descale again but it's only been a week. What else can I test for?

Bypass the door interlock with a magnet (the red light will go out when you have the magnet correctly placed above the group). Brew a cup and watch to see how the water is getting into the hopper. Once you know how it is getting into the hopper it should be relatively easy to determine how to fix it.

Giro plus - red light flashes rapidly, tried priming with no success. Anyone have any answers?


Have you tried draining off some back-pressure. That often is what the rapid flash means. Try pushing the hot water button then opening the steam valve. A few seconds after the pump comes on to push water out, the red light should go off. If it takes more than a few seconds, that's probably not the problem. hope this helps.

I have a red light and nothing is working no cofee and no milk nothing


I have a Saeco Easy. Maybe the solution for my machine will help you. You did not specify which light is red I will assume it is the "Alarm" light.

Alarm light (looks like an "!" exclamation point)

• permanently on: signals the machine is out of coffee, the water tank is
empty, the drip tray is full or the dregdrawer is full.

• slowly flashing: signals that the brew group is not inserted, the dregdrawer
is not inserted, the coffee bean hopper lid is not on, the service door is open
or the steam/hot water knob is not correctly turned to the desired position.

• quickly flashing: signals the need to prime the water circuit

I have a new Saeco Odea Giro Coffee Machine and have turned it on for the first time. I followed the instructions but the red alarm light is flashing and no "steady flow of water comes out of the wand". I...


Is it the red light flashing and the water button light also on? That means air in the system.If the flow of water is not steady, make sure water tank is fully push in.
The next thing you can check is the test mode which is not given in the manual.Hold down water button and switch on the machine,you will see the lights turning on alternately in anti clockwise direction. Release the button.Turn the dial to the right and press the coffee button, water pump will work.Turn on the steam/water knob and keep pressing the coffee button until all the air is purge out. Dial on other positions will test other components of the machine,such as grinder, solenoid valve , brew group,etc: I hope you can solve your problem with this information.

Re Odea Giro Plus - Cannot stop the red alarm


The problem is with the flow meter which is a turbine unit that is installed before the pump.Either there is a blockage or the unit is bad.Have to open the machine to get into it.

Our machine has stopped working....the alarm light is on and flashing slowly so we have gone thru all the steps in the book to find out what is wrong. When we turn the machine on, the green lite goes on...


If red light slowly flashing....Please check brewunit,dregdraw, door and coffeebean lid is properly in .
If flashing fast..means ventilate(prime the machine)
If itis steady..no water in the tank or time to empty the drip tray.or the more serious case the grinder is not working or not self testing.

What is the priming?


Prime refers to priming the pump. The error message means that there is air in the system which is preventing the pump from pumping water. To correct this, fill the tank with water, press the water button on the right side, and turn the water/steam knob to open. Allow the water to flow until the stream is steady. Press the water button again and your problem should be fixed

Saeco Odea Giro - Watertank


Yes that is perfectly normal. It has to have enough for a long coffee or steam. So it always has some to spare in the tank.
