Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Most likely, the machine is having trouble completely sealing its steam valve due to some sort of blockage. Follow these steps for descaling:



1. Mix the descaling solution according to the directions on the container.
2. Add the solution to the machine’s empty water tank.
3. Enter the menu mode. Scroll up and down until you find "descale" and hit ENT. The machine will now say "descaling open knob"
4. Place a large container under the steam spout and open the steam knob.
5. The machine will now go through a descaling cycle. It will let out a little water from the wand, then the coffee spout. It will continue to do this for about 30-40 minutes. DO NOT remove the water tank or anything else from the machine until this cycle is finished.
6. When the machine is done, it will read “descaling finished, close knob.” Close the knob and remove the water tank.
7. Thoroughly rinse the water tank and fill it with clean water. The machine now will say “Rinse machine, fill water tank.”
8. Place the water tank back on the machine. Now the machine will flush itself out thoroughly. It will read “Rinse machine, press key.”
9. Place a large container under the spout again and press the ENT button again.
10. The machine will now read “Rinse machine, open knob.” Open the knob and the machine will begin the rinsing cycle.
11. The machine will now read “Machine is rinsing.” The machine will flush out any remaining descaling solution. This will take a few minutes.
12. Finally, the machine will read “Rinsing finished close knob.” Close the steam valve. Note: In some cases, the machine may now read “Ventilate.” If it does not read “Ventilate,” you can skip the next 3 steps and turn off the steam valve.
13. If it reads “Ventilate,” press the hot water button (it looks like a raindrop) once. The message on the screen will not change. This is normal.
14. Now open the steam knob and allow water to flow freely from the steam wand into a large container. The screen should now read “Hot water, Ventilate. “Note: You may need to run a full reservoir of water or more through the machine until this message reads only “hot water.”
15. As soon as the screen reads only “hot water,” turn off the steam valve.
Your machine will now warm up and you are ready to brew again.


If after doing this still the issue is not resolved then it is likely that you need to have the steam valve replaced. Please call us to set up a repair.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Gaggia titanium. The water and steam are all going through the brew head instead of coming out the wand when I need it to. I have cleaned everything, used a pin to clean the wand (it didn't need it) ONE...


This is hard to picture. The only way water can come out the brew spout is if the brewing mechanism inside in the position to make coffee. The only way to get that mechanism into that position is to either select one of the three coffee buttons (you'd hear the grinder run, then you'd hear the motor putting the brew mechanism into place and then the pump start and water would then come out the brew spout. OR to select preground coffee and then select one of the three coffee sizes - in that case you wouldn't hear the grinder but you'd still hear the motor turn the brew mechanism into brewing position and then start the pump.
When you simply select hot water and then open the steam valve - I can't imagine any possible way for water to come out the brew spout.
Now if you mean that you don't see any water come out but water is leaking inside the cabinet and ending up in the drip tray - then that would mean a leak inside the machine. It could be the valve that the brew group locks into when it goes into brew position (you see this valve in a little recess behind the brew mechanism when you take the brew group out to clean it). Or it could be a leaking steam valve or hose inside.
You might try getting a flashlight and a cleaning brush - take out the brew mechanism and then clean around that little nozzle/valve that is in the recess just the left of center behind where the brew mechanism was. That valve should shut when you are not in brew position and not allow any water out - but it may be gummed up with coffee grounds.
If you are feeling brave - you would need a deep socket and a lot of patience with a small breaker bar (a ratchet head is too big to fit in there) and you can remove that nozzle/valve and then clean it or replace it. But it is very slow going to remove it (there must be some special tool they use at the factory). I had just the right size deep socket (like what you'd use for a spark plug in a car) but there wasn't room for a ratchet so I had to use a small breaker bar and I could only turn the valve about 1/4 turn at a time then I'd have to reposition the socket to do another 1/4 turn. It took 5-10 minutes to remove it - then it was easy to clean. I think you could clean it in place with a stiff bristle brush and some q-tips.
I don't know if that valve is the problem - but that's the only thing I can think of that would have your hot water and steam running into your drip tray instead of out the steam wand.

The alarm light to empty the coffe grounds drawer AND the descaling light flash alternately I cleaned the brew group. Machine comes ready, but when I press to make a coffee it comes back with alternate...


Hi, the problem with your machine is with the grinder motor (not working).As soon as you press the coffee the CPU senses the motor is out of circuit and the lights start flashing alternately.
You can test it by doing this. Press and hold the steam button and switch on the machine, you will see the lights going around in anticlockwise direction. Release the button then turn the dial to left (Min) and press the steam button the grinder should work. The dial on the right (Max) the brew group will come up..and half way it will come back to normal position. Press the coffee button in that position will work the pump. Servicecenter can fix this if the machine is less than 2 year old FOC.

I Have descaled my Saeco Odea Go but still it doesnt brew coffee


That is serious, that means the grinder is jammed or not working. To check the components of the machine follow these instructions.
Press and hold the steam button and turn on the machine, when you see the lights going around in anticlockwise direction, release the button. Turn the coffee dial to the left and press the steam button, the grinder should turn. Dial on the right and pressing coffee ****. water pump runs. Press steam ****. brew group go up, dial 1/4 to left B/Group down.
If grinder not turning the motor is bad. Hope it will help to find out.

Saeco Odea Go - Hot water leaks from bottom of machine


That's leaking from the hoses coming out from the boiler,if the machine is new it should be still under warranty, may have to take it back to the service center.When making coffee the lines are under pressure and the water never have a chance to pass through the ground coffee.

The water coming out of the steam nozzle is clear but fromthe brew head it is milky looking. I have descaled


That's ok .
The water from the steam nozzle is straight from a boiler.
Where as the brew head is fed from another boiler via the brew unit,so you will still have some coffee in the system.
If you wanted to you can rinse the brew head by making preground coffee without coffee this will flush it clean.

Dispensing Failed- Saeco Talea Ring Plus


Try adjusting the grind four numbers coarser and brew a coffee, if you are getting the same result then the brew unit is clogged and the screen needs to be cleaned.

Water not getting through


If you look under that white nozzle you will notice a small hole that leads to the drain tray, clean out hole and the area or small enclosure around the white nozzle (clogged with coffee grounds), and make sure that if you pour a little water in that enclosure it goes to the drain tray. That will solve the water under machine problem.
For the amount of water from the coffee nozzle, check brew unit, you will have to remove the shower screen and clean, make sure that the unit is not clogged in one of the tubes.
