Question about Saeco Odea Giro Plus Coffee Maker
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.
