Question about Saeco Talea Giro Espresso Machine

Descaling Problem SOLVED!
Folks, I really hope this helps a lot of you. I too encountered the dreaded descaling problem where it gets stuck in a loop and never finishes. I thought the machine was toast and see so many reviews that people experienced this and had to return the machine.
I tore apart the machine and figured out the issue and the super simple fix!
What happens is the water level sensor does not know it is running out so when the tank empties due to running dry, it never completes the cycle.
Where the water basin goes, if you look at the back lower down, you will see a small rectangular protrusion. This is the water level sensor that works by measuring capacitance. You know how sometimes your machine runs completely out of water and you have to prime it with the tea/hot water button? This is why! When you put the tank in full, water splashes over the edge and down the back. It coats the outside rear of the tank and the sensor with water so the machine thinks it still has an adequate level of water but then all of a sudden runs dry.
Take a paper towel and dry off the water level sensor and the back of the tank. When you put the tank in, do not fill it too high and put it in gently to avoid water spilling out.
Simple as that...fixed!

The answer is simple. The instructions in the manual and on Saeco's brand name descale fluid are WRONG! Either that, or they wired all the machines wrong. Instead of pushing the descale button to end the descale cycle (which makes sense) you have to push the WATER button to end the descale cycle (which doesn't make sense - but works every time). Saeco machines are great. It's just the instructions that suck.

Try doing another rinse cycle until water tank empties. I had to do that a couple of times, then the red exclamation mark came on. Then I turned knob to off position, refilled water tank, pressed the descale button for 6 seconds, green light came back on and it did its priming.

Did you often use the espresso machine for family or for business, when you often use the machine and you used water that is not filtered, you can assure it need to descale often.
Read carefully the manual and follow instruction. Did you descale it in the right amount of solution, how long and its duration?
If still persist ( the descaling light continue flashing ) then it has a defect in sensor. Since your machine is new, its under warranty. Call the dealer where you brought that and a service technician will send.
I hope I give you answer and solution idea for your unit problem.
