Re: water in the coffee grounds drawer

Look for a leak near the brew group on near the piston area.

Changing the brew group should solve this problem.

I have a Saeco Italia Digital Barista and we've used it for years every day and loved it. Unfortunately, it has started leaking water inside and dripping out under the machine I've tried descaling,...

Its probably a loose hose or a failed O ring. You can take it apart and probably find the problem and fix it if you are handy. As it is don't use it. It's dangerous. You cold get a shock. Unplug it and either repair it or take it in to someone who handles Saeco. Their website lists repair facilities.

I have a new to me Starbucks Italia. I have made a few shots and it is telling me to "empty grounds". I have done so but the empty grounds mssg won't go off and it won't function. what do I need to do?

When you want to empty the grounds because it says to in the menu, REMEMBER TO LEAVE THE MACHINE ON when you remove the drawer. The machine is a counter and when it reaches the magic number for that machine the message comes on. If the machine is turned off when you pull the drawer out, the machine doesn't know this and the message will be there when you turn the machine back on. Also remember to leave the drawer out for at least 15 seconds or a little longer so the machine thinks you actually dumped the grounds.

Not clear on "Empty bean container/full grounds drawer) - not empty/not full. " But I gather that coffee is not being dispensed. Most Likely the grinder needs cleaning + brew group needs cleaning ( filter ). Do you get water/steam?

Saeco italia

ok turn the machine on and wait till warmed up. Open door while machine is on and remove the dreg drawer. This you always need to do when the machine is on otherwise it will not reset.
flashing means dreg drawer steady means coffee beans

What happens when you open the knob on the right? It may just need priming.

Saeco Italia sensor problem

It does that after about 8 rounds of brewing, and it doesn't matter if you empty the grounds after every brew or not. It's automatic.
