Push your water button, then open the knob on the right. If the ventilate does not go away I would suspect that you have a restriction in your flow meter. That will have to be fixed before you can clear the ventilate and make coffee.

Error message "Ventilate"

That means the pump needs to be primed by running water through the wand. Push the water button for water(the drop symbol) You will hear the pump change tone when it primes and the light or message will disappear. If you have a restriction in the intake line the message will not go away. There is a flow meter inside the machine that measures water flow. If the flow meter does not spin when the pump is running, the computer thinks that the pump is not primed. Ventilate

How do you correct and clear the ventilate message on a Saeco Incanto Classic Espresso Machine

A tech just walked me thru one fix. If it is stuck on ventilate it could be just because the value is stuck. He instructed, quickly open the value. As soon as it makes the "hum" pull off the silver knob and push hard on the beige button as if you are pushing it to the other side of the machine. For me this worked!

The coffee machines say ventilate

You need to run water through the wand to prime the machine. Push the button that has or says water or a drop. The display will say "hot water". When the "ventilate" disappears it will say "warming up". You are primed.
