Make sure you try to prime right when the machine is turned on, so that there is no boiler pressure making it more difficult to prime.

Before leaving the machine in storage for extended period, it should be descaled to remove Calcium in the water that is still inside the hydraulic system.
When machine is taken out of storage & used again the pump and hydraulic system is totally dry. A pump is not designed to pump air. It needs priming.
A dry Pump will be louder indication that there is no water in the pump. In most cases flushing some water by turning water knob open will dispense water and machine can be used. When a pump is dry and not able to pump, it becomes necessary to manually feed a few drops of water to bring the pump to function.
Manual priming pump means forcing a few drops of water using a syringe or a Turkey baster. If this is not working, then a more specific pump supplied by Saeco can be used. Link for manual priming instructions is attached.

Don't buy espresso machines. They don't keep a manual database on line and keep changing models

My unit says prime and no outflow.


"Prime" usually indicates the pump is sucking air. Sometimes the valve in the bottom of the water reservoir gets stiff or gunked up; if you turn off the B60, remove the water container and drip some water into the water intake until it's full, turn the unit back on, replace the water reservoir and that little amount of extra water should be enough to allow the pump to work properly.

When power is turned on the word prime appears in the LCD control center screen and the water low lights flash in the water reservoir but reservoir is full What is wrong?


the word prime means that you have to fill the unit first so that all air is removed

check for some sort of bleed valve /screw at the top

fill the unit first then connect it all up

all these sort of instructions will be in the user manual for you to follow
