Prime = letting some water out from the water/steam nozzle. Priming means that the machine has not water in the lines. By letting water come out, you are making sure that water fills all the components and is ready to use.

Machine will not prime????


Hi,

I think you have to replace the flow meter (water turbin), it´s like a water counter.

My machine has been sounding louder and louder during the dispensing process


Your grinder is probably due for cleaning. If in warrantee, it may be covered. If not, need to contact SAECO for an authroized
Service Center. Also note that if you use dark roasted beans ( which are oily) + you store beans in refrigerator/freezer, you will definitely have to clean the grinder more often. Contact Saeco USA Inc. to located a Service Center near you at 800-933-7876 (toll-free), ask for customer support, or contact SAECO via e-mail at : outlet@saeco-usa.com

Saeco Caffe Charisma lights do not stop flashing


I had the this same issue and made a post to this thread, in that post I had this solution to my conditions.

The combination of actions that seem to work was turning the Saeco on while the steam valve was already open and selecting hot water once the Saeco was powered on. The prime light went out, I closed the steam valve
