Question about Saeco Royal Professional Espresso Machine
The machine was out of service and in storage for a couple of years. When hot water is selected, the pump runs, a small quantity of water comes out along with steam. Stops after the cycle, but still shows ventilate, and nothing works.
There is an air lock in the hydraulic line of the machine, thats why it is calling for ventilate, if hot water valve is open and it is still calling for ventilate, then it is possible that the valve is blocked, it might be at top of the wand or at the tap rod assembly.

I had replaced the water/steam valve in my Saeco Incanto DeLuxe a month ago, so I did not believe the valve was the problem. Still, the fact that no water would come out of the steam nozzle was puzzling.
Then I had a EUREKA moment. I removed the silver cover of the steam nozzle and unscrewed the rubber nozzle itself. The screw connection was about the size of a car/bicycle air nozzle.
I went to the garage and brought in my dusty bicycle tire pump. I connected the pump to the protruding plastic screw connection (it fit perfectly), fully opened the steam valve, and proceeded to pump away.
After about a minute, water started leaking from the makeshift connection. I closed the valve, removed the pump, and put the nozzle back together.
I was elated when I opened the valve and a little water came out, followed by nice consistent steam! I let the steam rum for a couple of minutes to clean out the pipes...
And that's it. My Saeco Incanto DeLuxe, with over 8000 coc, is back to normal.
I hope this helps someone else with the "ventilate"/no water coming out problem. Remember to descale your machine every other month.

I got the ventilate signal when I installed a new 'Intenza' water filter and didn't properly prepare the filter by soaking it in water. After soaking the filter and running hot water through the Ventilate light went off.
