Question about Saeco Incanto Classic Espresso Machine

1 Answer

My issue: watertank is full, when powered, coffee buttons and the left LED are blinking. When I open the steam valve, the pump works for like 5-10 seconds then stops, neither water nor steam come out. Same when I press 'hot water' button - just nothing happens. Thanks in advance

HI
You have a restriction in your flow meter or inlet opening. Usually it's the flow meter. The flow meter is connected to the intake opening on the back of the machine by a silicone hose. The other hose connected to the flow meter goes to the suction side of the pump. The intake side of the flow meter has a small opening and the other side connected to the pump has a large opening. When the pump turns on and everything is clear, the small side of the flow meter creates a jet of water that spins the turbine. This lets the computer know that water is present and turns the heater on. If the turbine doesn't spin the computer thinks the pump is bad and turns the light on for water and keeps the heater from turning on and burning up. You need to clear the small opening in the flow meter.

Saeco coffee machine with a red blinking exclamation point light won't make coffee, how do I fix it?


When the red exclamation point is flashing slow, something is not where it is supposed to be, bean hopper lid, door, brew mech, water tank empty, dregs box or water tray on dregs container is full. If the red exclamation point is flashing quickly, open the steam valve for pump priming. If pump turns on, and water passes correctly, the light should go off and return to heating stage. If not, we have a blockage or a pump that is not working correctly.

Right red light is blinking all the time


Alarm LED:
• Permanently on (one or more causes): No coffee left, water tank is empty, empty the residual water
tray is full (in this case the dreg drawer also has to be emptied to prevent problems).
• Flashing slowly (one or more causes): Brewing unit is missing, dreg drawer has not been inserted,
coffee container cover has not been inserted, service door is open, rotary knob for opening the hot
water / steam is not in the right position.
• Flashing rapidly:Ventilate the water system

We have this machine that we purchased in Italy in 1995 and it heats (left button) and steams but I can't get the water to pump (right button) through the coffee to go into the cups. Makes a loud clicking...


Obviously you have problem with non return valves at the pump, they are built inn the pump.
  • Remove the filter holder, open the steam valve and command brewing coffee. If water comes from steam valve close it> continue brewing and wait the water from coffee group. After this procedure test it with coffee.
  • If testing with coffee is successful you may work with that pump but always be careful to not leave empty water container.
  • If testing isn't successful you need to change the vibration pump.

Gaggia Titanium. Fault suggests ventilation required. Followed manual instructions, nothing happens. Tried rinsing, nothing happens. Tried hot water nothing happens? Have taken out and cleaned all pbvious...


Do you hear the pump working but no water flows?

You should select hot water (the third button from the right) and the display should say "hot water" at the same time it is saying VENTILATE --- open the steam valve all the way and the pump should start and you should see water from the steam wand.

If you don't hear the pump at all, then that is a different problem.

If you do hear the pump but still don't get any water with the steam valve open, then you need to prime the pump by using a turkey baster or the accordian pump that came with the Titanium to pump water into the valve where water from the tank goes. Remove the tank and use the turkey baster to pump water into that valve while the pump is running and the steam valve is open all the way with HOT WATER selected. the second water starts to come out the steam valve you want to stop the pump (turn the power off or turn the steam knob shut) and put the water tank back on and make sure there is plenty of water in the tank - then start the pump again by opening the steam valve all the way and let it pump water out the steam wand for a few minutes.

Where can I buy Miele coffee system instruction book?


You have to buy descaling tablets from miele.  You turn the knob to program mode and keep pushing the enter button until you get to descaling.  You put two descaling tablets into your water reservoir and replace into unit.  Put containers under the steam valve and the hot water wand. Press enter.  Turn steam valve al the way on.  Keep an eye on the containers.  The process takes about 30 to 40 minutes.  The message will appear 'Descaling finished." Turn steam selector to O and press enter.  Display will read "rinse machine, fill watertank.  Fill tank and return to machine.  Place empty containers beneath hot water dispenser and steam nozzle again and turn steam selector fully on. Allow water to run through system completely.  When process is finished, display will read "Rinsing Finished."  Turn steam selector to O and press enter  Program selector is on Program Mode and display will read Descaling, Timrt, unit is no descaled and ready to use.  Turn program selector to on.

  1. if it is fine ground coffee sometimes you get this result at machines.
  2. low pressure pump = you get water from it but only when handle is out or steam valve open.
  3. pump with non return valve broken = in this case you get water if you open tea valve during pump works. this pump can work long even she has 1 valve damaged, only when she is empty you need to open steam valve and leave pump running while you don't get water from valve.

Ventilate


I fixed my ventilate problem! After 2 days of utter frustration and pushing many buttons, I read another guest comment about resetting to factory settings. Push the up button under the small coffee icon. It should say factory setting with the asterick next to it. Push OK. Then push "yes" for factory settings. Then my machine started working again! Hallelujah! It erased my personal coffee cup setting, but who cares.

Big thanks to the person who posted their solution on Dec. 2007.
