Question about Saeco Syntia Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker
It leaks. The contraption will not reconfigure to fit back in. It slides in but not the whole way, so it can:t click into place. Hard water display always there. Xmas 2010. If not how, where can I take it?

We had this problem and it was overflow from a clog -- check the hole where excess water drains into the drip tray to see if it is full of grounds. Cleaned it out with a twistie tie and flushed w/ water. That stopped the water on our counter!

OK, I finally called Saeco. There are about four rubber rings that you need to get. The one for the water resevoir is a big thick black ring and once you get it and look at the new and the old, you can see why it is leaking. Anyway, fixes it no problem.
The overflow in the drip tray? There are two rings in the back of the machine that will fix that problem. Problem? I got them, but haven't put it on there because it very hard to get in there.
Last one, the ring around the coffee puck maker (what do you call that part) It's the piston that catches the coffe and raises up to tamp it down, then holds it as the water goes through. ANyway, big ring around that. If you aren't getting a nice crema on top, that ring will cure that.
I saw get all four, replace them all at once and then descale the coffee maker and be done with it. You'll be working like new in a few hours or maintenance. For most of us, it's been like 3 years anyway, time to do it.
Lastly, when you call Saeco, (Pronounced I found our SA Yey Co) ask for the directions for cleaning out the grinder. Even has notes on how to get it back together with all the adjustments in the right spots.
The rep on the phone says she likes this model better than most fo the new ones.

I read your post. Could you explain me this problem?
Me too have a syntia, but I never saw this error message.
What kind of symbol do you see?

The red icon on front is the call for water, is your machine full? If so the majority of the times it is do to a clogged filter (usually a small metal perforated disk) Check to assure it is fully cleaned, for very difficult clogs soak or you can use a safety pin to clear the more difficult holes. It could also be a scale build up issues so you can perform de-scaling of the machine two - three times one every day and
try to draw out the dissolve water and de-scaling solution in steps with 5 -10
minutes interval. This will give more time to the solution to dissolve the sale
build up in your machine. You can also try a reset. remove the water tank.
Remove power plug and keep aside, Now attach the tank back and test after 1 hour so that it is reset. If this does not clear your Icon after making sure the water tank is full. Then a service call will need to be done as there is some issue with either a sensor or possibly the boiler which has to be perfomed by a trained technician. You can find manual and part6s here for the machine
