Question about Saeco Royal Exclusive 30153 Espresso Machine

Not making espreso all the time

I have the Royal exclusive and had this happen this morning.
pushed the button twice to make 2 shots of espresso and the second shot just wasted the grounds with no water. So I removed the brew group and cleaned it and tried again. So far it worked perfectly. Is this usually the case when it is time to service the brew group? I have just used the machine in some time and now using it again. Any input would be a help.

Re: Not making espreso all the time

Being that you just started using it I would not be concerned. You did the correct thing by cleaning the brew group. Check on your screen under total coffees. We usually recommend you change the brew group every 10,000 cups.

Make sure you descale the machine and you can try using the cafiza tablets to clean your brew groups internal passages.

I have this machine but I dont know how to clean . do i use vinegar/ thanks

NO unless you like the taste of vinegar in your coffee for 2 weeks. You use the descaler made for these machines. You can get it from some of the online web stores that sell espreso machines.

I have been having trouble with the coffee coming out (vvery slow flow) so I descaled the machine today. Now its worse - it is just dribbling out - doesn't seem to have enough water going through. Can you...

2 things can cause this.
1. the grinder is set to fine abd you are creating to much pressure and the pump is having a hard time pushing water through.
2. You are getting a blockage in the brew head from coffee residue and oils.
Tru pushing the prre grind button and making a coffee without putting any coffee in. Blank shot. If it works its you grind. If not its your brew head. Needs to be cleaned.

I have a saeco royal exclusive and the messages are in french. now it says on the display "retrater purger" and it doe not work any more

Push and hold the menu button. When it changes in the window, use the up or down arrow button until you come to a window that has something like "lingua, or spreka", and then push the menu button again. Use the up arrow to scroll to "English". When you have the astric(*) in front of English push the menu button again. You have selected English and then you can push the escape button to exit. Some machines have exit in the scroll bar, so it depends on your machine.

No power to unit


If you had a leaking on this type of machine the water will go down to the power switch.

You can take of the top and check the fuse on the printed circuit card, in worst case you have to replace the printed circuit card.
