  • Increase your grinder size.
  • Normally it is 8.
  • Make sure to only change the grinder setting while the grinder is spinning.
  • Change only two numbers at a time then make three cups to see the results.

Saeco magic comfort display ventilate, what does that indicate

It means that no water is moving through the machine.. To reset, you need to hit the hot water button (that's the button with water drops). Let it run until the message goes away.

If nothing comes out then you need service. We can service this type of machine in New York.

My machine mark alternativley ventilate and fill water tank. I ventilate and I fill the machine and the message don't dissapear. With this display, I can't make any coffee. My email :...

Remove the bottom of the coffee maker, identify two rubber tubes and check to see if one has come loose or is simply not on tight. A simple reattaching of one of the tubes will work.
Another reason could be draining hole getting clogged with coffee grounds. When this happens it is easily fixed by removing the brew group and overflow tray; find the small drain at the back that drains excess water into the overflow tray and opens it up with a pipe cleaner or tooth pick. Flush out any coffee ground behind that hole.

Hope this helps.

Ventilate message

Push the water button (the one with the drops) and that will clear the message. The pump slows to much and the flow meter doesn't spin fast enough, the computer thinks the pump is bad. If your coffee is taking too long to brew, then you grind is too fine. Move the lever to a larger #.

The coffee machines say ventilate

You need to run water through the wand to prime the machine. Push the button that has or says water or a drop. The display will say "hot water". When the "ventilate" disappears it will say "warming up". You are primed.

Royal Professional machine


try to set the grinder to grind little more coarse, you have to make 2-3 cup to get the new settings to work.

To get off the ventilate you have to press the button for hot water and make a cup of water.

Hope this will help you.
