Re: Steam jet in Saeco Classico

Try Descaling your machine. A lot of times calcium will form on the inside of the boilers and on the heating elements in espresso machines causing heat transfer issue and clogged lines.

If the heating element cannot transfer enough heat fast enough then your steam will run out.

If you need a good descaler or descaling instruction visit

Why won't my starbucks serina froth milk. Just stopped doing this all of a sudden. I descaled, the little hole in wand isn't blocked. The milk heats but no froth.

This problem developed on my Sirena machine about a week ago. Stopped frothing milk, but still produced lots of steam. In fact, it was splattering milk everywhere, just not producing foam. Cleaned the steam wand (including air intake) and descaled the machine (even though its only 3 months old) to no avail. Called Saeco customer support (1-800-933-7876) and the very helpful rep immediately identified the problem. Inside the Panarello steam wand is a removable plastic tube. The tip of this tube should protrude about 1/8" beyond the end of the steam wand. Mine was not. Using the eraser end of a pencil, I pushed the inner tube downward into position and, voila, I now have froth again.

Change milk temperature (milk not warm enough)

It all depends in the Cappuccinotore(milk frotting part) Change a new one or
Think of a way to reduce the suction tube diameter smaller... to get milk and steam mixture correct.

Prime it

1. Open the steam knob all the way.
2. Turn on the pump (coffee Button)
3. Turn on the power to the machine.

The machine will start to pump hot water out from the steam wand. When you get a steady flow, your machine has been primed.

Problem with steam wand on my espresso machine

Did you try to prime the wand by running water through it for 4 seconds? After you do that it should work fine.
