Question about Saeco Incanto Classic Espresso Machine

Saeco incanto rs sbs won't heat up

We turn the machine off while we go out of town, and for the past year every time we come home and turn it back on, 80% of the time it just won't heat up to make a cup of coffee. It never used to take days of waiting to getnmaybe a luke warm cup of espresso. We have followed every step possible, from priming, running hot water/steam, descaling. Anyone have any other suggestions before we just finally thrownin the towel?

Grounds dry, non-pressed and jettisoned to bin. Pre-ground function fine. Otherwise, no coffe.

The solution to this Saeco Incanto Deluxe problem was simply tweaking the Program Menu settings. After receipt of the unit, I immediately set all settings to STRONG. This move proved to be a major complication because the machine could not compress the load of grounds being dumped into the brew unit. I responded by setting ALL coffee settings in the Program Menu to MILD and now only use the Large Coffee SBS setting for regular coffee (the coffee is still robust and delicious).. The expresso SBS setting and those SBS settings further to the left I use only with the small cup button. If I want a double I just do it twice. The machine was protecting the drive shaft and brew unit from damage by stopping the press and jettisoning the grounds when I had the machine programmed the other way. I hope this helps other owners.

Saeco incanto. very slow output, inconsistant flow. Have cleaned all as per intructions. won't always pour full cup as set. somtimes works perfect and then the next cup is slow and does not fill.

Well its either two things blockage somwere or a bad water turbine, the turbine i cant fix online so lets trie tha blockage.

First check if you have a Aquaprime filter in the water tank, in that case take it out. ( big white thing)

Then turn the SBS ( the knob on the oulet) to the far left.

I think you have to take it to a Saeco service center, they have to upgrade your power board in the machine.
