Question about Saeco Starbucks Sirena Espresso Machine

Open Question

My starbucks Sirena expresso machine leaks a lot of water, indicated by the pool of water underneath the machine after I pull a shot. I've cleaned the machine thoroughly and this problem still occurs. What should I do??? Also, the steam wand doesn't work right, when i froth my milk, the silver wand cover ends up blowing off, almost as if there is too much pressure and it can't handle it. Please help me.

SOURCE: Saeco Talea Giro no steam or water from spout

I have the same problem as well, talked to a repair shop and it's definitely a "send in" or warranty repair. I was told it's an o-ring issue. I have no water coming out of the steam wand and it goes into the dispense tray instead.

SOURCE: Unable to prime Sirena Espresso Machine

n regards of the no prime issue. this is the only way i could prime this new puppy.make sure its stone cold which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless its primed. first take off steamer plastic tip ,turn on steamer clock wise till pump starts. then **** the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems out of this world but it works. you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump. bravo enjoy!

Sirena Espresso Machine powers on but will not heat up and water not priming

After weeks of trial and error, I have found the solution, to prime the Starbucks Sirena Saeco Espresso Machine (woohoo!!!!!!!!!! ). You do not need to disassemble this machine, it will not heat unless it is prim WARNING: machine must be STONE COLD before attempting this! 1. Get a large syringe (Without a needle of course, I used a 60ml one I bought at a pharmacy for $3.) 2. Fill the water tank full 3. Pull off chrome tip on the steam wand to expose the black plastic jet where steam comes out. 4. Place the tip of the syringe onto the tip of the black plastic steam jet on the machine. 5. Push the power button ON. 6. Turn the steam knob clockwise all the way until the pump starts. 7. Press the syringe onto the jet firmly to seal the connection, and simultaneously draw the plunger out. 8. Quickly, release the seal and eject the air in the syringe out (into open air not into the machine) 9. Repeat steps 7&8 until water draws into the syringe. 10. Go make yourself a cup of coffee and celebrate that you overcame the flaw in this machines design that renders most of them to the rubbish heap.

I have a Starbucks Sirena - the grounds overflow in the basket while pulling shots, and it drips forever after it's done. When I remove the basket it's a huge mess every time. All the parts seem to be...

it sounds like you need a new group head gasket, or the group head gasket is not installed properly.
If it is a new machine, you probably just need to reseat the group head gasket. If it is a used machine, the gasket is probably worn, they need replacement every 6-12 months.
The Starbucks Sirena is made by Saeco, and is also called the Saeco Sirena.
You can find the group head gasket (brew head gasket), and any other parts from the following:

Here are a few videos of the machine in use:

My Starbucks Sirena Espresso Machine wont turn on. nothing happens. nada zip. I suspect its the power button itself. Do these things have fuses?

The thermal fuse in my Starbucks Sirena Expresso Machine failed. You will know if it has failed if you unit doesn't turn on and/or your unit doesn't produce steam. This expresso machine is a double boiler unit and the thermal fuse is located in the steamer boiler (boiler closest to the top of the unit). The fuse is actually wedged into the steam boiler. Make sure the unit is unplugged. Remove the water reservoir then remove the 4 screws that hold the reservoir housing in place (you will need a torx wrench for 2 of the screws). Next remove the warming lid on the top of the unit by lifting it from the back. Remove the 4 screws that hold the metal upper cover in place. You may need to remove the 2 screws that hold the front panel in place to have enough room to loosen the thermal fuse fixing plate. Unplug the wires that plug into steamer knob control unit. Remove the protective cover to the steam boiler. Loosen the screw to the thermal fuse fixing plate. Remove the thermal fuse and replace with new fuse. Do not solder in the new fuse otherwise you may cause the fuse to fail due to the heat of soldering. The original fuse is a 233 Celcius and 15A. I purchased a thermal fuse from radio shack that is rated at 228 Celcius and 10A ( So far it works fine. You can also purchase thermal fuses from For a schematic go to SIN 025RX explodeddiagram.pdf.

Starbucks Sirena. lights blink, won't heat.

johnshami had this solution on another post, and it worked for us:
  1. make sure the water in the tank is stone cold -- which is a no brainer since it will not heat h2o unless it's primed.
  2. take off steamer wand cover, turn the steamer knob clockwise till pump starts.
  3. then s*ck (as you would on a straw, with your lips sealed around the end of the steamer wand) the tip of the end of the metal tip hard until pump stops
  4. may need to do it a couple of times. yes this seems crazy, but it works! you are flushing out the vapor lock in the pump.

Won't fill with water

You need to descale the machine every 3 months or so. Try that --- Starbucks carries descaling powder for ~$4.
