1. Open the steam knob all the way.
2. Turn on the pump (coffee Button)
3. Turn on the power to the machine.

The machine will start to pump hot water out from the steam wand. When you get a steady flow, your machine has been primed.

My machine reads "prime water system


The reply cannot be helpful if any explanation is offered without knowing the category, make and model of the coffee maker.
Basically the water flow in the system is slowed. The machine may need descaling.
If the pump is louder than normal, it is air locked and will need manual priming to let it pump normal.
The manual priming is to inject a few drop of water into the pump (just like a speaker needs a sip of water to continue his speech).
To manually prime the pump you can use a syringe, a Turkey bastor (if you are in USA) or use a hand pump made available with some makes (included as accessory with Saeco, Gaggia espresso machines).
For descaling you may use the link to order a reliable descaler:

My keurig b60 says prime


This can go out by draw out some hot water. However if this happens very often then you need to perform a descale.The brewer should be descaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. Descaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend descaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The descaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar. Learn how to descale your brewer.

It says descale but I don't know how. It won't let any vinegar or water go through.

Trying to prime the machine and it doesn't go past not ready. Everything looks correct and it sounds like something is going


a very small obstruction will keep the machine from properly priming. you can try running descaler through, but it is probably not going to fix the problem. most likely there is a small deposit in the water tube at the connection where it enters the heater to make steam. if you can back prime, you might be able to flush it out, otherwise you have to take it apart, clean it out, and put it back together. it is easier than it sounds if you take your time.

Machine stoppped working


Try this remove the brew unit and clean the screen on the unit, then insert unit, and open steam/hot water valve to prime. If that does not work then there might be a malfunction with the pump, I am assuming that the machine is only 2 weeks old?

"NEED TO PRIME" alert is on. Have run a couple of tanks of water through the wand making hot water, but still says NEED TO PRIME. The pressure on the water seems a little lower than normal. Tried to...


That message indicates that water lines may be dirty. How long ago or how often had you descales your machine? If you have not routinely descaled then the water lines have to be cleaned ( by opening the machine) manually and/or replaced. Another possibility if you have been descaling it regularly, is that a water line may have small crack. And yet another possibility is that the pump may be going bad and/or the flow meter is clogged ( needs cleaning and/.or replacement). Best suggestion at this time is to have an Authorized SAECO Service Center check your machine. 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

Steam jet in Saeco Classico


Try Descaling your machine. A lot of times calcium will form on the inside of the boilers and on the heating elements in espresso machines causing heat transfer issue and clogged lines.

If the heating element cannot transfer enough heat fast enough then your steam will run out.

If you need a good descaler or descaling instruction visit www.CeriniCoffee.com
