Question about Saeco Magic Cappuccino Espresso&Cappuccino Machine

Saeco Magic won't stay hot

Hi, when you run a coffee through, the temp light goes out before you have run enough for a double shot.We have had our unit for 18 months and I have never been happy as it has never been able to do this. A similar problem occurs when frothing milk, you do very little before the temp drops below a good working temp. The light must be working as the temp is too low.

Sounds like a board issue. It was something that happened on the Saeco Magic Deluxe's enough to be noticed. The board is not available for magic deluxe's with oval buttons.

JUST HAD IT SERVICED. RAN TWO SHOTS OF ESPRESSO, STEAMED MY MILK JUST FINE. THEN WHEN I TRIED TO DO ANOTHER SHOT, PUSHED BUTTON AND NOTHING HAPPENED. STEAM LIGHT FLASHING, WON'T GO OFF.


Hi
If you steam and then try to make another coffee, you need to cool the boiler off. Turn the steam off by pushing the steam button again, then open the steam knob and running water until the flashing light turn to green steady. Then make you coffee.

Temperature control on Saeco magic deluxe


No it cannot. I am not sure why you would want the water hotter. It is designed to be at the perect temperature for passing through the brew group for coffee brewing, its kind of a simple science. 
If your machine has been producing less hot coffee gradually, that marks an issue. Try descaling the boiler per the manufacturer's inscrutions even if the warning light isnt on. The other option is that the thermal fuse mounted to the boiler is bad and turns off the boiler prematurely, those cost about $15 and are simple to replace. Lastly, the boiler heating element may be 'burnt out' new boiler is $120+

Saeco Magic Deluxe resets itself before completing brew cycle


Hi Try reprogramming the machine. Push and hold the button for the coffee you want, but hold it all the way through the process. Don't release the button until you get the amount of coffee you want for that button, then release the button. That should get you the same amount next time. You can do this for each coffee button. If that doesn't fix it, then you might need a new flow meter.

The Magic Comfort Plus machine has a selection for the temp through the menu for the three sizes of coffees buttons. Using the menu button, scroll through until you come to temp section, then select the coffee size button and and change the temp, example-- Select maximum. Press the menu button to set it.

If that does not help, when a machine gets full of calcium (needs descaling) that also will lower the temp. You might have to descale it three-four times.

And remember, when you descale, run the solution through the steam/hot water wand and also the espresso/coffee dispensing nozzle. Only doing it through the steam wand (like the manual says) will only do 1/2 of the machines water sections!!! I usually run 1 cup of solution through the steam wand and 3-4 cups through the espresso dispenser.

Making Espresso shots... how does the macine do this? Not in man


www.partsguru.com look to the left for Saeco Home Models, select that, then go the model you have and download the manual.

On a magic comfort it has two settings for adjusting the espresso shot besides the amount of the shot. .

On a magic comfort plus,
you can adjust the grind size, the amount used for the shot, preinfusion (a short shot of hot water on the grinds before the unit passes all the water through the puck (coffee grinds), temperature and amount of water for shot

Also, when setting the strength on this machine, don't use a full grind amount as it can jam the machine. use a setting of 6 or 7 max for strong shots, not the 8 or 9 setting!!!

Saeco magic


I believe the model you have has no user-selectable temperature settings. The manual for the Magic line suggests preheating the cups as the fix. You can use the electronic cup warner OR run your tap/faucet water as hot as possible, fill the cup you're going to be dispensing espresso into with hot water while your Saeco warms up...right before you hit the button to dispense espresso, empty the hot water, dry the preheated cup and you're set! It only takes a few seconds. This way, you waste none of your coffee's thermal emergy on cup heating and your coffee will stay hot longer. Hope this helps!
