Approximately every 3 months (depending on your use and the water hardness), clean the machine with natural citric acid based decalcifying agent. 1. Add a descaling solution into the water reservoir.

Turn espresso machine on, turn coffee pump on and run approximately 8 oz. of solution through the brew head. Turn machine off and let the machine sit for 15 minutes. 4.Run approximately 8 oz. through the steam wand, and again, turn machine off and let sit for 15 minutes.

Do not leave espresso machine on. Do not wait for the ready light to come on. Do not use the steam switch during this process. Do not allow reservoir to run empty! 6.

Auto descale: To automatically descale your machine, press the scoop button or menu button if you have one, and hold it down until you enter the menu. Use the arrows on the left to scroll down until you come to Descale. Press enter and the machine will enter the mode to descale your machine. The process takes about 45 minutes. You don’t have to do a thing except mix a full water tank with descaling solution and have a container under the steam wand when your start.

Replace on the machine and start the descaling process over again to rinse your machine. Go back into your menu and scroll up or down 1 to signal descale and enter.

The majority of leaks in the Incanto are caused by the steam / tap body installation. If you open the machine, you will find the tap body is made of toughened plastic. This is inferior, and should be replaced with a brass tap body which can be purchased directly from Saeco. Also, the piston sometimes sticks and creates a blockage. You will also notice the steam outlet is only cm's from the micro processor on the power board. Any leaks from the steam tap body almost invariably wreac havoc on the power board. Overall, the Incanto is a poorly designed machine that I would not recommend.
