Question about Saeco Intelia Focus Automatic Espresso Machine - Black

Open Question

Saeco intellia display only shows in red. Though after checking, all functions are OK. Descaled it but no change. If it does not display in red it does not display anything unless you look very carefully into the display and you can barely see what it would have been.

    I have the same thing. The green LED light is not working. However, opening up the unit looks like a lot of work and risky, if you don't know what the insides look like. Does anyone know if this unit is home-serviceable for a moderately handy guy?

SOURCE: I Have descaled my Saeco Odea Go but still it doesnt brew coffee

That is serious, that means the grinder is jammed or not working. To check the components of the machine follow these instructions.
Press and hold the steam button and turn on the machine, when you see the lights going around in anticlockwise direction, release the button. Turn the coffee dial to the left and press the steam button, the grinder should turn. Dial on the right and pressing coffee ****. water pump runs. Press steam ****. brew group go up, dial 1/4 to left B/Group down.
If grinder not turning the motor is bad. Hope it will help to find out.

Why is it stuck with "warming up" message displayed?

If everything else works, I.e the heat element is ok. Check if the machine is getting warm.
it' s most probably the boiler, that has to be descaled.
the heat element cannot reach the required temperature to dispense coffee.
in case the machine is not getting warm, the element has to be changed.
let me know if it works after de scaling.
you might have to go through the cycle a couple of times and use an adequate solution, NOT VINEGAR!

On Vienna Deluxe after the beans are ground and ready to drop the espresso shots, nothing comes out and the red light goes on? I shut the unit off for a minute or so, turn it back on and it works ok, but...

Solid red light is a ventilate light.. Try Priming the machine to see if the light goes away.

Something may be in the flow meter. Its the while device between the water tank and the pump of the machine. You would have to open the machine and clean out the flow meter.

Also, if you haven't descaled the machine already, I would start there.

LED not working properly

Yes, I have exactly the same problem after running the de-scale routine, we've only been using the machine for 4 months (in Melbourne where the water is soft). You can dimly make out the icons on the display and the machine works Ok. The display contrast is set correctly, yet the green images are not showing up properly while the red images do show up.

Saeco Easy red light stays on


Make sure the magnet in the water tank flow up when you fill the water tank. Look at the dregsbox and make sure you have a little pin that goes into the machine.

Electonic display will not change on a Siemens Expresso machine

I have had this problem with our coffee machine as well some how the machine has sucked air into the system and needs to get it out.

To ventilate the machine turn the dial on top of the 'magic comfort' sign (the one for the froth) and place a glass underneath. Keep the dial turned till the sign ventilate goes away then close the dial.

This process has always worked for me...
