Grinder works fine. Water pump sounds normal but no water flow when in rinse mode, brewing coffee or in hot water dispense mode. Something is clogged???

Run a simple cleaner through your system without coffee. Pour in white vinegar 4:1 ration. Brew this maybe up to 3 times. Should clean your clog.

Saeco Odea Go descaling

fill the tank with detergent and let the hot water run for about 15 seconds. Then turn off the machine for about 15 minutes. Then turn the machine back and let the hot water. Then rinse the water tank and fill it with clean water. Run hot water again to empty the tank. Fill clean water again and then you can put down coffee :)

I have a Saeco Incanto Classic. There is hardly any water coming through the coffee dispenser even if I only use the preground doser without inserting coffee. While the little water comes out it makes a...

Sounds like the the shower screen under the red o-ring in the brew group needs to be cleaned, you can remove the screen and clean or you can purchase some espresso machine soap puro caff or puly caff, and run it through the brew group using the preground method the clean out coffee oils.

When you press the coffee button the machine grinds the beans, but then the water comes out the steam wand... please help

The problem is a very frequent one a small scale part have been moved and it stack to the water steam valve and it blocking it from closing completely. So when you make coffee the hose of water for coffee is in parallel with hot water steam wand and since the valve remains partially opened the water for coffee find easy escape from steam wand.

So we suggest to perform one more descale and it may need twice hopefully this small scale part to be dissolve a little bit more in order to pass thought the steam valve and thus the valve can close again completely. If you are not so lucky the part remain on the valve then only solution is to disassemble the machine thus clean the steam valve manually. In this solution you may find out that the valve o ring might be damage and thus the leak.
here is the link with steam valve parts and this the parts diagram of the machine and here many more for your machine

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.

No water dispenses when making coffee, the hot water feature works fine. I have descaled twice

Descaling or boiler problem doesn't seem to be your issue as your single boiler is both used to make hot water and coffee. As the hot water is working fine we should concentrate on the brewer unit blockage ( give it a good clean and remove Brewer screen or screens and un block dirty clogged holes ). Then if problem still exists make sure you are not grinding your coffee too thin ( will cause blockage and machine lockup ) if this is the case. I have also come across customers who for some strange reason turned off their machines before it could finish the coffee dumping cycle and leaving it for a while ( left over coffee goes hard and cloggs ). Hope this helps.

Re: no coffee comes out after the grinding and loading stages!

Sounds like your coffee grinder is grinding too fine. I would up the size of your grinder. The larger the numbers the coarser the grinds. Also, should descale the machine if you haven't in a while. One of these two things may help.

Also, if the above two things do not work you can try to clean out your grinder using the instruction #2 posted on the website

How do I descale the saeco magic deluxe coffee machine?


Try this:

Standard descaling
Switch off the machine.
Pour a descaling product into the water tank.
Switch the machine on to the programming mode(see below). Place a large container under the steam/hot water dispensing tube and open the steam/hot water knob slowly, turning it counterclockwise.
Turn on the machine by pressing the main switch and let the descaling product flow out of the dispensing tube for approx. 1 min.
Close the knob again.
Turn off the machine with the main switch and let the solution take effect for approx. 5 minutes.
Repeat this procedure two or three times, to allow all of the descaling product in the water tank to flow out of the dispensing tube.
As soon as descaling has been carried out, rinse the tank thoroughly and fill it with fresh water.
Switch on the machine and let fresh water (approx. 2 l) flow out of the steam/hot water dispensing tube in order to rinse away residue.
The machine is now ready for operation.

When the machine is on, the warning light switches off automatically, by pressing the steam selection button for at least 5 seconds.

To enter the programming mode, turn the machine
off with the main switch.
Press steam , espresso coffee and the
main switch at the same time.

Release the buttons.

Hope this will help you.

Defect Saeco Odea Giro. Red exclamation flashing fast. Mashine is function only in service mode. A defect in Saeco Odea Giro. TYP 0310R ser. number. 9007SA40523803 Please help for repairing the machine. I bought the automatic coffee machine second hand. After unpacking, I discovered that someone was intruding into it cracked plastics and handles. By common check, I discovered the 1st fault - a broken piston catalog number 11003468. This is quite a common fault with these machines. 2nd defect leakage of the valve. Even one O ring was missing. I replaced all O-rings with new ones. Then I went over to check the individual sensors: Level sensor in the tank - OK Sensor closed coffee bean hopper - OK Sensor of closed door on the brewing unit side. - OK Sensor on the waste container - okay When I wanted to try switching on a microswitch that detects the presence of the brewing unit in the hole, I did not find contact. So I removed the wall behind the brewing unit and found that there were two microswitches near the toothed wheel. I checked their functionality. Both well. I assumed that one of them was not at his destination. The one with the green connector I supposed to indicate that the brewing unit is in place. I moved him to the top. I checked the state of the electric motor and lubricated the gear. I returned the wall back. Next, I ran the diagnostic mode and checked other components: a Boiler - Heats up b The pump - presses correctly and the green diode flashes during its operation and shows the activity of the flowmeter c solenoid valve - switches correctly d the grinder grinds and during its operation the green diode flashes and reveals the activity of the speed sensor in the mill e the brewing unit is moved to the top position and to the basic position without any problems Other things I've done: The whole coffee maker is cleaned, deep decontamination is performed using the diagnostic mode. Check the flow meter clean without oxidation. Check the tightness of all hoses. Both boiler thermostats are checked. Removed and thoroughly cleaned the mill. Despite this, the machine behaves as follows: Turn on the machine and fne the mill shaft. The red exclamation mark flashes very quickly. The green light of the boiler heating is not lit or flashing. However, the boiler is heating up properly. When I eject the tank water flow, the red exclamator lights up permanently. After the tank returns, the red exclamation mark will flash rapidly again and the green indicator the boiler is heated will light up properly. When switched on, the Indycatter does not light the cup. Only a drop of water drops and coffee beans lit up. Can not prepare coffee, can not refuel hot water. All this can only be done in diagnostic mode. In the diagnostic mode, I also de-aerated the machine. Both the nozzle and the coffee outlet through the brewing unit. Self-cleaning will not start. I do not know anymore, maybe there is a bug in the electronic panel. Will anyone advise me? Thank you.
