    Hi What happens when you push the pre-grind button but don't put any coffee in (blank shot) and then push the large coffee. Does it brew water?

Check to make sure the quantity button has not been reprogrammed. To do so, push and hold the coffee button until coffee flows through. Also be sure to check the brew-unit. In some cases if the b-unit is plugged, it will not allow water to flow through. Also check to be sure you are not grinding too fine, if coffee is too fine it too will plug the chamber...........Hope it helps.

maybe the grind is too fine. Too fine will make it harder for water to pump through the coffee.

I have saeco incanto deluxe coffee machine,ventilate msg appears

Check the end of the steam nozzle, make sure it is not blocked. If not then with the knob open for hot water cycle push in on the knob if that works then the tap rod assemble or the steam valve needs to be replaced.

No water dispenses when making coffee, the hot water feature works fine. I have descaled twice

Descaling or boiler problem doesn't seem to be your issue as your single boiler is both used to make hot water and coffee. As the hot water is working fine we should concentrate on the brewer unit blockage ( give it a good clean and remove Brewer screen or screens and un block dirty clogged holes ). Then if problem still exists make sure you are not grinding your coffee too thin ( will cause blockage and machine lockup ) if this is the case. I have also come across customers who for some strange reason turned off their machines before it could finish the coffee dumping cycle and leaving it for a while ( left over coffee goes hard and cloggs ). Hope this helps.

Royal Professional machine


try to set the grinder to grind little more coarse, you have to make 2-3 cup to get the new settings to work.

To get off the ventilate you have to press the button for hot water and make a cup of water.

Hope this will help you.

Saeco Incanto not grinding

Hi Chris,

The leaking is your steam valve that has to be replaced, you can see this if you open the door and look up in the right corner there you will see water drip.

If not then you have a pipe or boiler leak.

How old is your machine?
How often do you descale the machine?

When you try to make a cup of coffee, starts the grinder for two seconds or is it dead?

Hope this will help you.

Trying to ventilate and hot water not flushing through on button 26

Before you press water button to vent you need to restore to factory settings.

First press menu (far right button) then toggle to restore factory settings (using far left button), press menu button then far right again until yes comes up, then press menu button. Press esc button (3rd from left), machine should now be back to normal. Then press water button (3rd from right) and turn steam knob to vent until free water is coming through.

This is the only way I could get mine to work!
