If it's under warranty, call Saeco for guidance. If it's not, CAREFULLY clean every possible part using small brushes (old toothbrushes work well, as do coffee percolator/straw cleaning brushes. They're long and skinny and have a long wire stem and handle. found mine at Bed Bath and Beyond), q-tips and "canned air," like "Dust-Off" I'ts available at walmarts, some grocery stores, electronics shops, big box stores, etc.

if you REALLY feel daring and know a little bit about a lot of stuff, and it's NO longer in warranty, labeling every single piece as it's removed, take the machine apart as far as needed to see whether the problem is mechanical (dirty or clogged), or electrical/electronic. then re-assemble and test. ;-) good luck and hope you get it running!

No milk or frothy milk being dispensed

Milk may not be frothed optimally. In these cases simply turn the flow regulator as shown in the figure.
Turn the regulator 2-3 times to perform a quick maintenance.
Note: If the assembled regulator is missing, replace it with the other 3 regulators provided.
There is a pump

Saeco Talea Giro no steam or water from spout

I have the same problem as well, talked to a repair shop and it's definitely a "send in" or warranty repair. I was told it's an o-ring issue. I have no water coming out of the steam wand and it goes into the dispense tray instead.

Defect Saeco Odea Giro. Red exclamation flashing fast. Mashine is function only in service mode. A defect in Saeco Odea Giro. TYP 0310R ser. number. 9007SA40523803 Please help for repairing the machine. I bought the automatic coffee machine second hand. After unpacking, I discovered that someone was intruding into it cracked plastics and handles. By common check, I discovered the 1st fault - a broken piston catalog number 11003468. This is quite a common fault with these machines. 2nd defect leakage of the valve. Even one O ring was missing. I replaced all O-rings with new ones. Then I went over to check the individual sensors: Level sensor in the tank - OK Sensor closed coffee bean hopper - OK Sensor of closed door on the brewing unit side. - OK Sensor on the waste container - okay When I wanted to try switching on a microswitch that detects the presence of the brewing unit in the hole, I did not find contact. So I removed the wall behind the brewing unit and found that there were two microswitches near the toothed wheel. I checked their functionality. Both well. I assumed that one of them was not at his destination. The one with the green connector I supposed to indicate that the brewing unit is in place. I moved him to the top. I checked the state of the electric motor and lubricated the gear. I returned the wall back. Next, I ran the diagnostic mode and checked other components: a Boiler - Heats up b The pump - presses correctly and the green diode flashes during its operation and shows the activity of the flowmeter c solenoid valve - switches correctly d the grinder grinds and during its operation the green diode flashes and reveals the activity of the speed sensor in the mill e the brewing unit is moved to the top position and to the basic position without any problems Other things I've done: The whole coffee maker is cleaned, deep decontamination is performed using the diagnostic mode. Check the flow meter clean without oxidation. Check the tightness of all hoses. Both boiler thermostats are checked. Removed and thoroughly cleaned the mill. Despite this, the machine behaves as follows: Turn on the machine and fne the mill shaft. The red exclamation mark flashes very quickly. The green light of the boiler heating is not lit or flashing. However, the boiler is heating up properly. When I eject the tank water flow, the red exclamator lights up permanently. After the tank returns, the red exclamation mark will flash rapidly again and the green indicator the boiler is heated will light up properly. When switched on, the Indycatter does not light the cup. Only a drop of water drops and coffee beans lit up. Can not prepare coffee, can not refuel hot water. All this can only be done in diagnostic mode. In the diagnostic mode, I also de-aerated the machine. Both the nozzle and the coffee outlet through the brewing unit. Self-cleaning will not start. I do not know anymore, maybe there is a bug in the electronic panel. Will anyone advise me? Thank you.
