My Saeco Xsmall stops before brewing the coffee

1- The grind fineness setting is too fine. Pump is not able to pump through the compacted coffee grounds.

2- The machine is not descaled. The Calcium deposits in the hydraulic system have reduced the pump pressure. The partially clogged water passages can generate a back pressure to reduce pumping pressure. Was the machine descaled in the past two or three moths? If yes, what was the descaling product used?
3- The pump may be air locked and not able to pump water.
4- Oily beans may have been used. Oily beans are poison for the all fully automatic espresso machines. This clogs the grinding chamber or the grinder outlet. This model is made in Romania made in 2006 or after. This machine has a Ceramic Burr grinder 2006 which is a huge problem to clean adjust beans quantity per shot of espresso etc. etc. Occasionally it will dump dry coffee grounds when the quantity of beans powder is insufficient.

Based on the above details, you can figure out what is wrong and fix it. See the exploded parts diagram included, for help. Services Unlimited Inc Parts Guru Since 1988

It grinds but why won't it advance grounds and why does the red bean light come on?

(Besides the possibility of being clogged) there is also a microswitch which controls when there is enough coffee. If this switch isn't working properly, the machine will keep grinding coffee indefinitely. The microswitch has code XCC5-81 (you can look for it on e.g. Ebay:

Cleaned the machine thoroughly, even replaced the head, and still no water pressure to brew coffee

And nothing happens. Then there is the power it is on. And all loose parts are where they should be? And all buttons that tell you what is happening are in the right place. Check if these things are OK Regards from Kolbrun

No pressure in machine. i can't get any decent water stream from coffee outlet; only rare drops. steamer works fine. Can you help me?

Their are four posible reasons for above problem as follows.
First the Vibarating pump not creating pressure, usaly if here the sound it is pressing but not always. You can loose the pipe nut after the pump to see if you have any pressure after you press the coffee button. Be carefull with the water leaking.
Second the coffee solenoid valve that is on the grouphead might be stuck from dry coffee, it can be removed and cleaned with hot water and a wire brush.
Third the coffee group shower and inside round dish might also blocked from dry coffee, remove it and clean it.
Finnaly the more difficult problem might be that boiler-thermoblock is full off scale. So you must remove and descale the thermoblock boiler and the copper pipes to them.
This problem is the more difficult to be performed however if the water you have use was very hard then this is the most posible.
Good luck,

Boiler not keeping pressure

mostly your boiler gasket is gone, or a line has blown might be lucky with a leaky o-ring

Boiler has quit working

Check to make sure that there is water in the boiler by either checking the sight glass then rocking the machine to see if the water level bobs up and down, then check the thermal reset switch on the left side of the machine above the element. Make sure there is water in the boiler before pressing reset and turning machine to number 2. After machine heats up make sure pressure does not go past 1.5 bars on the gauge. If it does then the p.stat needs to be replaced.

No crema

Sounds like the handle where you put the coffee in needs replacement, if you leave the machine on for long periods with the handle on there is a metal spring inside with plastic parts that regulate the pressure in the tamping basket. 9 BAR is the desired pressure to produce crema. the plastic parts can melt and the spring looses tension. If you place the handle on, lock it, the it should shift slightly backwards on its own if you have to help it I have bad news replacement time. I have seen replacement from 25.00 - 90.00. I have two classicos and already replaced one handle and have to do the next. It could take one time of leaving the machine on all day. Good to get in habbit of turning off the machine immediately after use let it cool slowly attached to unit and clean it when you get home. Immediate cleaining in cold water could make the spring fatigue faster and also cause this problem.
If you are brave and can remember where parts were; take the three screws off where the coffee comes from handle slowly separate the parts and you will see if plastic melted, is distorted or spring is like mush.
Here is the saeco parts diagram and parts ordering site but I warn you its the most expensive - 70k -

Pressure problem

Just a thought here...are you using the correct grind of coffee and have you tamped it thoroughly to keep the pressure up through the grounds? There are a number of sites on the web which talk about how to use an espresso maker. I'm sure you'll get the inspiration you need there to learn to do it right.
