Question about Saeco Odea Go

2 Answers

"Saeco ODEA GO" red light flashing fast The story? The problem started while descaling the unit. After completing the seconded pass the unit started fast flashing red ?!? and will not stop until you are out of water, which at that time you get a green light and a solid red light. I have run a second descaling process with no change. I have noticed that when I was descaling there is only water pressure via the pump for about 12 -15 seconds then it stops, to get it to restart supplying water out one has to turn off the water and back on again via the valve on top. I have also looked inside the unit for any loose connectors or leaks, none found. I do not have any schematics for this unit, which makes it very had to troubleshoot. I would think there is some form of water pressure / detector circuit that is not working or fouled up. Need some help! Bryan

    Hello kapishtech,



    Is the water level sensor also used to detect prime of the system which would cause a fast flashing red ! ?



    Currently when the water gets low or is out the fast flashing red ! changes to a solid red !.



    Is there a way to by pass the sensor, to see if this is the problem?



    Thanks,

    Bryan

The sensors on these machines can be a little temperamental, so we often see them in for warranty repair because of this.The water level sensor is a white rectangular piece (1" x 1/2" x 1/4") located between the water tank and the grinder. Check out.Keep updated.Thanks.

    Yes that sensor can cause the red light flashing.Its possible.
    By passing the sensor is not that easy.Actually the sensor goes down when the water gets filled.If the sensor does not go down then no water gets detected.Sticking the sensor down is the option.But its not always successful.But in some cases cleaning the sensor in machine OFF condition.Then readjusting the sensor to its place then turning the machine On helps.but its not 100% possible.In some cases it helps.But still i advise you try to clean it and try to stick the sensor down manually and then check.

    In other cases it needs replacement.The saeco parts are actually not very easily available online.So the saeco service center has to be called to order the parts.But the saeco service center is not very helpful and takes some time to provide the part.
    Thanks for keeping updated with the query.

Yes, the water pressure sensor is the most likely to have malfunctioned. You need to have that one replaced.

SOURCE: 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.

That is the descale light, you should run a descale through the machine. After you have done that hold on the water button and the descale light will go away

Red light is on (looks like an M) and I don't know why??


It means time to descale , however if you want to get rid of it, just press and hold the water button until it goes off.
To descale..fill the container with descaler and let water goes through the system by openning the valve and catch the descaler with a container. Turn off the machine a few minutes and start the process all over again for 1/2 hr, and finally with water to wash the system.(donot want to heat up the descaler too much)

My Saeco Odea Giro has the element light permanently on (not flashing) and the strength light is set to 3, I cannot change it. I have tried descaling, cleaning etc. Any ideas?


The element light is saying it,s time to descale. Since you have done that you can remove it by holding down the water button for a few seconds until it goes off.The strenght light?.checked whether it is not sticking.
