See page 18 of your owner's manual for how to do a descaling; it's not a difficult procedure. As to your steamer problem, ensure that the milk container lid is perfectly clean; rinse with plenty of hot running water and ensure that water flows through the openings freely.
Make sure that you are using 2% milk; make sure it's cold 2% milk.

Can not bring menu up to start descaling procedure


You don't actually need a descaling menu to Descale.
Remove the Coffee Beans.
Just put the descaling solution in the water container and use the steamer as usual. Just don't drink the brew
Run 2-3 passes if necessary.

Now...Whats wrong with the Menu...
Or is it just hard to find the descale in the menu?
Think about it over a nice Coffee!

My Saeco Italia is stuck in the descaling mode. I tried to descale it yesterday and now it is stuck in the descaling mode. I have tried resetting as instructed in the manual and unplugged it overnight. It...


I had this problem too. I was beside myself wondering what to do. I took the machine apart but there was nothing wrong. It was stuck in an infinite descale cycle. The 5 green buttons never blinked to say it was done. What finally fixed it was to close the steamer valve to where water was being being restricted from the steamer wand but still a little water was spurting out. It finally quit emitting water and the 5 lights blinked and the infinite descale cycle completed. This model espresso maker was a lemon and been nothing but problems.

Steamer working only intermittendly


Hi
Have you tried to descale your machine. Remember to use the correct descaling powder and make sure that it is totally dissolved before running the descale program. In the menu, make sure that your water hardness is set on 4. descale more often than not enough.
