SOURCE: Lift the lever, but nothing happen - no sound, no action...

This happened to me. If you look closely at the lever you will see that the action of lifting the lever presses in a switch that is right behind the lever on the front of the machine. This switch starts the brew pump. One of the wires connected to this switch has rattled loose and lost contact. To fix this you will have to take the top of the case (the lid) off and then use long needle nose pliers to try to grab the loose wire and re-attach it to the switch. There is not much room to manuver, but I managed to do it eventually. Unplug the machine first, of course!

I installed a single lever shower unit when water is turned on i water out of spout and shower head . i took it a part all washers look good and doubled checked unit was put on right to water lines


You should also have a diverter in the spout. Just turn the old spout off and turn the diverter spout on. You lift the ball on top to use the shower.

Easy steam express ll not steaming


The problem with the DD steam mop is not getting steam out but trying to get it to keep coming out. If U disassemble the plastic housing around the handle U will see a small part connected to 2 hoses, one going to the water reservoir the other going to the heating unit. This is the pump which provides water to the heating unit, and if this fails U won't get steam. U can try disassembling this and try to get the piston to move more freely. A loud clicking sound coming from this should indicate good movement and a feeble click click click may indicate restricted movement.
Hope this helps

1. Where is the lever located in the Saeco Incanto De Luxe located? 2. How do you decalcify the same same product? Thank you for your help


Hello Dolls36,

I understand you have two questions the lever question I assume you are taking about the steam lever. The second question is how do you descale the unit.

Lets answer the first question first. The steam lever is not a lever but a knob. The knob is located on the right side of the unit.
1. Put container under steam tube turn knob downward to open until you get steam
2. Once you get steam turn knob upward to close
3. Put item you want to steam under steam tube and open valve back up to steam

Now to answer the question about how to descale the Incanto De Leluxe. When you are ready to descale the machine follow these steps.
1. Hold down the "x" button for 5 seconds, the machine will tell you it is ready to descale
2. Remove the filter
3. Fill the water tank with your descaling solution
4. Insert a container under the steam tube and open the steam valve
5. The machine will display descaling and finished
6. Then it will prompt you to fill tank with clean water for rinsing.
7. Press the "x" button once tank is full
8. Place container under steam tub and turn knob to open steam tube
9. When finished press "x" button one more time to confirm done
10. Replace water filter and fill tank

I hope that I have answer you question as for question 1 I assumed that is what you were asking about. However, if that was not the right question please post back to this tread and I will be more than happy to answer the question that you specify.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

My Rowenta Master Steam Generator - Steam button turns on but does not turn red or heat.


- First the good news, the service center in Concord is very good and would you believe they have new in the box Rowenta DG980 in stock!

California Electric Service in Concord CA (it is the only Rowenta repair station in California) go to either of the following addresses:
their website is: http://www.californiaelectricservice.com/
or tech service: service@californiaelectricservice.com

Now the not so good news. This model uses what I call a "flutter pump" that turns on when the boiler needs more water pumped in if the reservoir is dry and the red light comes on indicating it is out of water.
Generally, if you remove the blue water reservoir and turn on the unit, in about 5 minutes the boiler should have sufficient heat converting the residual water in the system to steam, for at least one or 2 "bursts of steam".

If all this works, then likely the $75 electronic printed ckt board driver detector is okay. It enables the flutter pump, fills the boiler with a few tablespoons of water to be converted to steam and repressurizes the steam system. It is the sequence logic this board does that you can use to determine the bad part, find and replace it yourself. There are many thermostats and sensors and without a schematic it is tough to reverse engineer.

The most expensive parts are the tank heater and sole plate elements followed by the ckt board (make sure you label all the connections & draw a color coded diagram before replacing this part) especially likely if the flutter pump does not turn on and everything else gets hot & steams is okay if unit less than 5-10 yrs old. BTW a new unit is $350 so you have to weigh your options and talk estimate for repair with repair tech if you go that route. A lot can be said if your unit is not that old, have used clear water, allowed steam to run dry (minimizing long term storage with water in unit), and cleaning the boiler as specified in manual. It is worth the price to repair OR replace. It is a great machine.

Saeco Magic Roma - Steam & Water OK, no Coffee


Remove brew unit and push on bottom end shaft you will hear a snap then turn and lift small bar lever ( if you are holding unit with handle towards you it will be on the right side), this will help you see if there is an obstruction.

Steam comes from wand when set to dispense water.


Check the connection to the boiler from the pump, there is no water going to the boiler. Try this test, remove the brew unit you will see a white plastic valve behind it, carefully lift the small lever on the valve(HOT WATER), if water sprays, then the problen is at the brew unit, if no water then the boiler inlet or outlet is clogged.

No coffee coming out, just hot water


Two questions:
1- Is the coffee grounds wet or dry?
2- Does the spout drip water when the machine is just heating up?
If the grounds are dry then the brew chamber is not getting any water. Turn machine off, let it cool down, then remove brew unit. Behind the brew unit there is a white valve with 2 red o-rings(sometimes black), if you look closely there is a small lever between the o-rings, get a small screwdriver and gently lift lever and spring, if water came out then the problem is in the brew unit, unscrew the stainless steel screen which is under the large red O-ring on the brew unit and clean, also make sure the tube on the unit is clear.
If the hot water spout is not dripping when the machine is heating up then you're good.

My Hamilton Beach 40729 will not brew! The motor hums and I can get water to pump through the steamer. Please help!


This unit does not use the pump to generate steam, so if the pump is bad (motor works but the pump it drives does not transfer water) you will get steam but no water through the head to the portafilter.

The unit is not user serviceable and at $68 to buy a new one, it is for the most part, disposable.

The pumps on this unit do not like to be run dry as they rely on water as a lubricant. Without water in the reservoir, the pump may fail in a short running time.

Step 1 - fill the rear tank with water. Clip the tank onto the back of the unit.

Step 2 - plug the unit into the wall.

Step 3 - move the switch to "steam". You should hear the unit 'ticking' at the rate of about 120 clicks a minute (2 clicks a second). The clicking should be "kind of" loud until the water makes its way into the pump.

The clicking will get quieter as the water moves through the pump and into the heater. The book says that you should start getting steam in a couple of seconds. My experience is that you don't get a good head of steam up until the unit has been going for about 20 seconds.

Another recommendation: don't use "Spray" until the steam is really rolling out of the unit. It just overpowers the heater and slows your steam production.

Step 4 - Steam the spot you want steamed. If you want to soak the spot, use "Spray". Most of the really good cleaning power of the unit is through the steam, so use that more than spray.

Step 5 - Switch to Vacuum and **** up the moisture from the steaming.

Repeat Steps 4 and 5 until you're happy with the cleaning.

Step 6 - Empty the front tank, rinse it out. Empty the rear tank; you probably won't get all of the water out, but that's not a problem. If you use tap water, put in a couple of teaspoons of vinegar and let the unit run until you've sucked the last of the water/vinegar solution out of the tank. If you use distilled water in the rear tank, you might be able to skip this step.

Step 6 is intended to reduce the amount of lime scale that will build up in the pump over time. You should probably avoid stronger chemicals, since they are going to sit in the pump until you use the unit next, and the first few seconds of steam on the next use will have whatever chemicals you are using.
