The water is heated by an electrical resistance so either the resistance is interrupted - in which case you must replace the entire heater element - or the resistance isn't powered by the control board - you will have to test the board to find out why.
To test the resistance and the control board and find out the cause of the failure you must open the machine : not a very difficult job - just a lot of screws and plastic tabs - but it will be long and fiddly. Pry the plastic tabs gently with a blunt knife and don't force them the plastic is truly fragile and break/scratches easily.

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.

Starbucks Sirena espresso flashing blue light & does not heat up


Gary,

I have the same exact problem with mine starting today, did you get this figured out? I'd love to know if it's fixable or not as I was planning on selling my previous machine. If it's an expensive repair, I'll just have to ditch this one and go back to my previous one.

Starbucks sirena won't heat up; blue light flashing-brand new


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.

Just out of the box, the sirena espresso maker doesn't heat and buttons don't flash


You need to prime the machine with water. Fill the water tank. Plug the machine in and turn the power on. Instructions state the lights will flash, but they won't. Blue water drop will illuminate indicating the machine is empty (the water tank is full, but the pipes in the machine are empty until you do the following). Place a cup under the steam wand, and rotate the steam knob fully to the "on" position (fully clockwise as you view it from the side until you hit the hard stop). No need to use force, just rotate until you hear the pump turn on. At this point, you'll hear a pump running, and after 10-30 seconds, water will be ejected from the wand. Continue until the blue light goes out and you're ready to brew. At this point, I think the lights flash and it comes up to temp. One more thing, when using the steam wand, always turn the knob until the pump engages, or you run the risk of emptying the water line. Hope this helps and enjoy!

Starbucks sirena lights won't turn on


Just had this happen. Finally I let water run through the steam wand (thought it had to heat up first). Water ran through (until blue light stopped blinking) and now the other lights are blinking...we will see if it works now.
