Question about Saeco Starbucks Sirena Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Blinking blue light won't shut off even when the water is full

My machine won't work because it thinks there's no water even though there is.  I tried emptying the water and moving the grey float around (but there doesn't seem to be a way to remove it as someone previously suggested???  how do I do that??).  I also rubbed the area of the blue light but that hasn't reset anything.  Still not working!

You need to prime the machine. if the instructions for priming don't work (as they didn't for us), then try this:

johnshami had this solution on another post, and it worked for us when the manual's instructions to "prime" the machine resulted in no water leaving the tank to enter the machine:

  1. make sure the water in the tank is stone cold -- which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless it's primed.
  2. take off steamer wand cover, turn the steamer knob clockwise till pump starts.
  3. then s*ck (as you would on a straw, with your lips sealed around the end of the steamer wand) the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops
  4. may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems crazy, but it works! you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump.

    I have a similar problem. Blue light flashes. No water seems to be going through the system. I tried sucking on the steam "straw" as suggested 4X, but to no avail. Any other suggestions?

Why does the power light keep blinking


The blinking light is wrongfully indicating that there is not enough water in the tank. The sensor is a small magnet that is floating in a compartment at the bottom of the water tank. (The black square in the corner) You shold be able to see it. Check if it is stuck at the bottom and if it is floating in its chamber. If that is OK, the sensor inside the coffee maker that is reading the magnet might either have come faulty or dispaced (due to a shock?). That would need a disasembly of the coffee maker.

My sirena has blue blinking water light even though it has a full amount of water


Turn on the machine and turn the steam knob all the way on. Let it run until the light goes off. This primes the pump. It should run properly after that.

Dont spend to much time trying to repair dehumidifier they are very cheap to replace. Most dehumidifiers have lots of problems because they are made so cheap. Just replace the dehumidifier you will tank me in the end.

I have a nespresso latissima machine,Got it for x-mas, and now there is constant yellow light on the water (the tank is full, and there is a blue light when it is time to fill it up...) What does it mean?


I just had this same problem with my brand new Latissima premium and I fixed it by adjusting the water hardness setting. The yellow water warning light being constantly on means the machine thinks the water is too hard and the machine needs descaling. In my case, the machine just needed to learn how hard my water actually is. In the manuals that came with the machine you should have been given a ph testing strip and there are instructions in the user guide about how to adjust the water hardness settings. As soon as I did that, the yellow hard warning light immediately went off. In my case the water setting needed to be adjusted to the 7-14 ph setting. I'm attaching pics of the water hardness setting instructions from the manual.dberlyne_3.jpgdberlyne_2.jpgdberlyne_1.jpgdberlyne_0.jpgdberlyne.jpg

You need to prime the machine with water. Fill the water tank. Plug the machine in and turn the power on. Instructions state the lights will flash, but they won't. Blue water drop will illuminate indicating the machine is empty (the water tank is full, but the pipes in the machine are empty until you do the following). Place a cup under the steam wand, and rotate the steam knob fully to the "on" position (fully clockwise as you view it from the side until you hit the hard stop). No need to use force, just rotate until you hear the pump turn on. At this point, you'll hear a pump running, and after 10-30 seconds, water will be ejected from the wand. Continue until the blue light goes out and you're ready to brew. At this point, I think the lights flash and it comes up to temp. One more thing, when using the steam wand, always turn the knob until the pump engages, or you run the risk of emptying the water line. Hope this helps and enjoy!

Solis Palazzo - stuck in descale mode?


Are you refilling the tank during this process? You need to let in run dry, and then the buttons flash. Then, refill the tank with clean water, and let the tank run dry again.
