Question about Saeco 00034 Incanto Sirius Super Automatic Espresso/Coffee Machine

2-cup won't work

I bought and returned 5 machines until finally I found one that worked. Unfortunately it worked until I descaled it. Right after that it started acting up. Tapping twice the cups would not respond and would make only one cup. A few days later I cleaned the brew unit and emptied the tray and it lost the setting for the shot size. It would only prebrew and stop. When I tried to reprogram the coffee shots and I took my finger off the button at 1 oz the water wouldn't stop running until it filled about 4 oz of water. It took about 8 times of repeating the steps until finally it set at 1 oz. Out of desperation I bought a brand new machine and program it exactly as the old one. While the touch panel works it dispenses the coffee only on one side of the nozzle. I tried enough of these S-series to realize that they are riddled with problems.

6. Now don't touch the machine. It will do it's thing for about 20 minutes. (Don't be impatient and start to push buttons, just leave it)
7. When it finishes it's cycle. The red light will turn off. Then clean the water tank and put fresh water and run clean water through the brewing cycle 4 times. Your machine is now ready for use.

The descale light keeps blinking, what should I do?

The 'Descale' light that turns on indicates that it is time to de-scale the machine.
Scale - or mineral deposits- form from the water you run through your Keurig coffee machine. If not cleaned regularly, the buildup can clog the lines in your machine and ruin the heating element. The manufacturer recommends you descale Keurig coffee makers once every six months for normal water conditions and once every three months if you live in an area with hard water.
You will need :
  • Keurig coffee maker
  • 48 oz. white distilled vinegar
  • Water
  • Large ceramic cup
  • Sink

Instructions :
  • 1 Unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.
  • 2 Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.
  • 3 Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.
  • 4 Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.
  • 5 Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.
  • Good luck ;)

    How to descale a breville one cup

    NOTE: Not my instructions i just found something similar.

    According to the instructions for Breville Hot Cup (presumably similar to yours - the adjustable flow one):
    1. Fill it to the max and dispense one cup of water.
    2. Add a citric based descaling product into the cup and stir.
    3. Tip contents into kettle and close lid.
    4. Dispense water from the kettle, discarding the water until it reaches the 'min' mark.
    5. Empty remaining water into sink, rinse out with clean water.
    6. Fill kettle with fresh water and dispense cups of water until it reaches the 'min' mark. Empty the rest into the sink, then refill ready for use.

    Red de scaling light won't shut off

    Removing the red descaling light is simple.
    1. Fill reservoir with half vinegar and half water (no need for the special descaling product from Tassimo).
    2. Turn on machine.
    3. Insert yellow cleaning disc found in back of machine.
    4. This is where most people have the their problem...You must hold the start button for 3 to 5 seconds for the descaling program to start. Both green and red light will flash.
    5. Once started, use a large cup to catch the output of water.
    6. The machine will cycle through the descaling program in about 30 to 45 minutes. Be paitent!!!
    7. Once completed, run many cups of plain water through the system to remove the vinegar taste.
    8. Red light problem is solved.

    Hope this works for you.

    Not enough water making it from holding tank to dispensing cup

    your machine is "Short Cupping"

    It needs to be descaled. Even though the descale light might not be on yet, the descale light only comes on when it is in SERIOUS need of a descaling. You should descale once every 3 months.

    Fill reservoir with distilled white vinegar and leave the machine on for 4 hours (make sure to turn off the auto off option).

    after 4 hours, run the vinegar through the machine until the reservoir is empty. Refill with water and repeat twice. you will notice a difference right when you start running vinegar through.

    It's blinking de-scale side water holder gets r4eally hot water is not coming out properlywhen u press one of the cup size bottons


    This is the time, you need to Descale the machine. The simple procedure is :-

    Unfortunately, in spite of the best-laid plans of mice and men, espresso machines often get clogged by scale, deposits of minerals from hard water. Scale can cause serious damage if untreated. If your espresso machine's water flow has decreased a lot, it's probably because of scale. Fortunately, there is an easy and inexpensive way to descale your espresso machine.

    1. Obtain some citric acid. You can either order this online or find it in the kosher foods section of the supermarket (usually marketed as "sour salt"). Acid solutions dissolve scale, which is made of calcium carbonate. There are special solutions marketed specifically for descaling, but citric acid works just as well and is much cheaper.
    2. Prepare the descaling solution by mixing citric acid with water (I use two tablespoons of acid and a quart of water).
    3. Put the descaling solution in the water tank, turn on the machine, and run water through the steam wand until the cup is filled, to expose the parts to the solution. Turn off the machine, and leave it for 20 minutes so that the solution has time to dissolve scale.
    4. After 20 minutes, run more water
    5. Run solution through the machine every 20 minutes, until the water tank is empty.
    6. Fill the water tank with plain water, and run water through the machine until output water no longer tastes sour. This is important, because excess citric acid does not make coffee taste good.
    Let me know, if need further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Descaling light on

    Per Pages 9 and 10 of Keurig Model B40 Use and Care Guide,
    1) turn off the "Auto Off "feature
    2) fill empty water reservoir with 48 ozs of undiluted white vinegar.
    3. Place ceramic cup on the drip tray and run a brew cycle. Do not use a K-cup!
    4. Press the large mug Button
    - let Keurig coffee maker fill mug with vinegar & empty in sink.
    5. Repeat brew process until water reservoir of vinegar is empty. (remember to open and close lid between each cycle so large mug Button will flash.
    6. Rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and fill with fresh water.
    a) place a ceramic cup on the drip tray
    b) run regular brew cycles WITHOUT using a K-cup.
    c) pour rinse water into sink each time.
    d) repeat brew process until water reservoir is empty.
    d) perform additional rinse cycles if you notice any residual vinegar taste.
    e) if the red "De-scale" light remains illuminated after completing descale and rinse cycles, repeat the descaling procedure above.
    Otherwise - you're good to go!
