Question about Starbucks Barista Utopia

1 Answer

Found a Saeco Barista SIN 006 at a yard sale. Cleaned and just tried to prime it. However, when the steam knob is opened, no water emerges; there's simply some vibration. I don't think the wand is clogged, since a pinhead could easily be inserted and retracted. On the other hand, I suspect this machine has not been used in quite some time. Any suggestions? Thank you, Felicia

Hi Felicia,

You need to get the air out off the system, to do this you have to force in water in the water inlet with som kind off pump.

Our Saeco italia has an error message: Need to prime. but it will not prime when water knob is turned on...


i had this same problem and it turns out a small mineral deposit was lodged in the water line, right before it went in to the second heater (to make steam). The cost to repair and shipping was pretty high, so i fixed it myself and it's not too hard. You can try de-scaling. If you want take the water line apart, let me know and I'll walk you through it.

What happens when you open the knob on the right? It may just need priming.
