    Thanks to the two folks who offered suggestions. I think mirran was on the right track with a line blockage or something similar. I broke down and took it to an authorized dealer here in Tampa. They replaced all the lines, blew out the machine, and did a major de-scaling. Works like a champ now. Tampa has very rough water so I will now use only distilled water to prevent a repeat. The best $65 dollars I could spend.

    i'm pretty much sure that distilled water is not really drinkable, you should use filtered or mineral water

Do you have a filter in your water tank?
if you have a filter, remove it and try.

You need to manually prime it using the priming bulb that came with it. Instructions are in the manual. Remove water tank. Fill priming bulb. Hold priming bulb on water inlet. They don't inter-connect, so just hold it on there as best you can. Turn the machine on, turn steam knob on, and gently, slowly squeeze the bulb to force water into the machine. It works best when the machine is cold, because you want to get liquid water in there, and not have it displaced by steam.

I have a Saeco Incanto classic, the low water light is on, tank is full, and I have steam coming from the steam wand.


try descaling the machine it could be that the water level switch is clogged with water calcium and not lifting when water is added, or it is defective and needs replacement. I hope this was helpful.

Try this, when you run the hot water cycle to prime machine and it stops putting out water push in on the knob if that works then replace the tap rod assembly or the whole steam valve assembly.

Check the end of the steam wand and parnello, if both are clear, then descale machine, that might unblock the tubes feeding the booster boiler and the steam wand if it doesn't then you will have to do it manually.

Flashing lights on my saeco italia espresso machine


I had the same problem, two green flashing lights with one red (water) all 3 would just keep flashing and not turn solid. No coffee can be made or hot water. I could not pump prime. The problem was the steam wand was blocked with old milk residue. It needs unblocking or you will never pump prime. I could not unscrew the steam wand...so I let it sink in a glass full of hot water for a few minutes and then turned the water knob counter clockwise to push out the softened residue. After that, everything was good. When water started flowing out of the steam wand, the red light turned off and the green lights turned solid. The obvious answer to why you can't pump prime is there is a blockage somewhere and best to start with the steam wand. --Mabada

Press hot water button and open the knob for about 10 secs, this will prime the machine. Check the emd of the steam wand to make sure it is not blocked.

Do you get coffee? If it is just no water/steam, could be a blockge in the steam wand, or blockage in water lines. First test easy one - the steam wand. If the steam wand is o.k- then check for blockages in water lines/components ( pump, boiler, steam boiler). If you do not feel confortable with testing all the untis where water flows, contact Saeco USA Inc. to locate 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

Brand new Incanto Classic bought online, not working after 1 month


First, machine should be under warrantee- check with 1800myjuicer.com
Sounds also like you have blockage in the steam wand- every time you froth milk, you should let some water come out- to prevent clogging. Try first inserting a pin into steam want ( machine turned off) to see if that alleviates the problem. Also contact
