SOURCE: Saeco via venezia coffee machine wont prime

Turn machine on and make sure that the knob is fully opened, if the pump does not engage(vibrate) then either the machine is not getting power or there is a problem with the pump.

SOURCE: Saeco professional. Water tank needs filling, switch OK

Hi
It could be the magnet in the water tank. If it sinks you will get that message. How do you know the switch is OK?

SOURCE: The Sensor Magnet for water tank does not float to the top

OK, first of all, I do not recommend my solution if you are forgetful or do not check your water level manually daily.

However, I found a super easy solution.

The way the unit works is to use a float in the water chamber with a magnet on the bottom. When their is enough water in the tank, the float rises and the magnet on the bottom floats to the top of the magnet chamber. When it floats up, it aligns with a sensor in the machine that allows the machine to operate. When the the water level lowers, so does the magnet and drops below the internal sensor disabling the machine with a "Fill Water Tank" error message.

To eliminate this error and allow the machine to operate, I simply popped off the lid to the magnet chamber with a butter knife and turned the water chamber up side down to let the magnet float fall out. Remember to empty the water first.

Here comes the highly technical part. Turn the magnet float upside down and slide it back into the float chamber. Since the actual magnet is on the bottom of the float it now is at the top allowing the internal sensor to turn off. No more error message!

The reason I do recommend this is because this completely defeats the purpose of the sensor and will most likely damage your machine if you run it without water. Keep you tank filled however and you will eliminate the frustration of a "float gone bad" keeping you from your morning caffeine.

I want descalcificacian saeco easy sup 021ye what butons y press?


Hi,

Warning! Never use vinegar as a descaling agent. You can use any commercially available non-toxic, non-harmful descaling product for coffee machines.

Descaling is necessary every 2 months; should water be very hard, descale the machine more frequently. The machine must be on; it automatically controls the distribution of the descaling solution.
  1. Switch off the machine.
  2. Fill the water tank with the descaling solution.
  3. Place a large receptacle beneath the steam tube.
  4. Switch on the machine.
  5. Open the knob.
    The descaling process starts.
  6. Dispense the descaling solution into the receptacle.
  7. After about 30 seconds close the knob.
  8. Switch off the machine and remove the receptacle.
  9. After 10 minutes, follow instructions 1 to 8 to the water tank is empty.
  10. Rinse out the tank and fill it with fresh drinking water.
  11. Place a large receptacle beneath the steam tube.
  12. Switch on the machine.
  13. Open the knob to rinse.
  14. If the receptacle fi lls, empty it.
  15. When no water is left, turn the knob to close the valve.
    Remove the container.
After descaling the machine, reload the machine circuit. Install the cartridge filter again in the water tank.

I have a Saeco Incanto RS Espresso Machine. The prime light is on, but the machine won't prime. Very little water of steam comes out of the wand.


You need to manually prime it using the priming bulb that came with it. Instructions are in the manual. Remove water tank. Fill priming bulb. Hold priming bulb on water inlet. They don't inter-connect, so just hold it on there as best you can. Turn the machine on, turn steam knob on, and gently, slowly squeeze the bulb to force water into the machine. It works best when the machine is cold, because you want to get liquid water in there, and not have it displaced by steam.

Descaling


Remove the filter holder (portafilter).
The manual says to unscrew the nozzle from the filter holder coupling and wash with hot water.
Mix a liquid decalcifier with water in tank at a 1:1 ratio. DO NOT USE VINEGAR! It says to fill the water reservoir.
Run the cleaniing solution through the machine - pressing the coffee button, 1 cup at a time. During each interval let the decalcifier act for 10 or 15 minutes by turning off the machine by the main switch.
Carefully wash the tank and fill with fresh water and empty 2/3 of this by pressing the coffee button.
Now let the machine warm up and empty the rest of the reservoir by rotating the hot water/steam knob.
Screw the nozzle in the filter holder coupling again.
