Why wont the steamer work


hi,
he pump presses hot water through the grind not steam.
if the coffee is hot and hot water is dispensed, your line are clocked.
descale the machine as directed.
if coffee is cold the heat element is toasted. very unlikely though, since the machine will not dispens coffee, pump running if correct temperature is not reached.
good luck

Window shows "Expel Air" message.


Fill the water tank.
- Turn the program selector to "On with
light" and place containers below the
hot water dispenser and the steam
nozzle.
- Press the hot water button, turn the
steam selector counterclockwise
and let water run out until it streams
steadily.
- Press the hot water button again.
Turn the steam selector to "o" to shut
off the water.

Hello The lights on the front of the machine wont stop flashing so I can't press the cup symbols to make coffee. The hot water is coming out though through the steamer spout. Thanks!


Circuit Priming
When the machine operates for the first time and when
all the water has been dispensed, the machine circuit
needs priming. In this case, the 4 buttons of the control
panel will flash at the same time.
• Press the ON/OFF button . The 4 buttons will
flash.
• Place a container under the cappuccinatore.
• Open the "hot water/steam" knob by turning
it anticlockwise.
• Press the hot water button.
• Wait for water dispensing to stop.
• Close the "hot water/steam" knob by turning it
clockwise. Remove the container.
When the first priming ends, the warming up
starts. Before brewing coffee, water and steam,
please wait for lights 15 and 16 to be permanently on.
The machine is now ready to brew coffee and dispense
steam. Please see related sections for operating details.
Note: if priming is not completed, the 4 buttons
will keep on fl ashing. The machine cannot be
used.

4 questions: #1...what are the 2 hoses for: I understand that one is needed to suction the water to the pump, but what about the shorter hose? #2...I am unable to get crema. I have adjusted my grind...


1; Second hose is for expansion valve from pump, in case there is excess pressure the water returns to the reservoir.

2; Either the coffee is stale or the amount of tamp pressure is not enough. Think of your grind coarseness rocks and sand, that will help you find the right grind.

3; No

4; Yes it is normal. You need a higher temp for steam than for coffee, therefore the thermostat on the machine is programmed to get the water in the boiler to steam temp when you ask for steam, a few seconds at the most.

Saeco Odea Go - Hot water leaks from bottom of machine


That's leaking from the hoses coming out from the boiler,if the machine is new it should be still under warranty, may have to take it back to the service center.When making coffee the lines are under pressure and the water never have a chance to pass through the ground coffee.

My Saeco Incanto deluxe started dripping hot water from the steam spout outlet when coffee is brewing. It produces steam and hot water without any problems. It doesn't leak when it's in a normal state...


Either the grind is too fine and there is so much pressure that the pins in the steam valve are not working properly. First try to adjust grind a little coarser, it that does not work, then the pins in the steam valve need to be replaced.

Water is leaking into the drip tray.


Clean the chamber below the white plastic valve, there is also a small discharge that leads from there into the drain tray clean that hole also.
Second the thermostat that controls the steam may be damaged or the cpu board, the contact the controls the steam may be damaged, i have seen both of those happen on some units.

Water is only coming out of the steam valve not the coffee maker part


I apologize if I offend you in saying this, but perhaps check the steam knob and make sure it is off, turned all the way away from you. If the knob is even a little bit engaged the water will bypass the brew group significantly.

Otherwise, your shower screen may be severely clogged, though I doubt this is the case if you have only made one cup of espresso. Give it a look though, and scrub it off with hot water and a grouphead brush--or a dedicated vegetable scrubber brush (my preference :)

Steam wand shooting water instead of steam


You're supposed to wait for the blinking light to go solid before attempting to steam your milk!
Until then, the water isn't hot enough (it's at coffee-brewing temp, not steaming temp) to produce steam.
Further, after steaming, the water is too hot for coffee's correct brewing temp, and the light again blinks until it has cooled down enough, if you care.
