Hello Teresa,

I understand that the brew group is stuck in your Expresso Machine. Did you know that it has to be removed and cleaned ever so often. The users manual explains how to reset and remove it for cleaning. Incase you no longer have the users manual here is a link to the users manual http://www.cerinicoffee.com/custompages/Manuals/Saeco/IncantoClassic_Manual.pdf

Thank you for using FixYa.com

Bunn CW Coffee Brewer not brewing enough coffee - amount is half


Have you cleaned lately, put in an empty filter and fill with cold water with a tablespoon of white/clear vinegar. Run the brew cycle, empty pot and while still worm fill with cold water again with out vinegar. Than check filter to see how much hard water chunks are in the filter. Repeat with and without vinegar tell filter is clean. One question though is there a lot of steam coming out of the top during the brewing cycle if so inside there is a tube that may be cracked, broken or came loose, have to look inside. requires opening or disassembling unit to check. REMEMBER when taking apart UNPLUG unit first.

My Saeco Incanto Sirius machine keeps asking for yet another VENTILATE cycle


This means the water cannot flow through the machine. Normal fix is to prime the machine (turn water dispenser on, fill a cup) or descale the machine. Go through the menu, select descale, enter, then turn the steam knob fully anti-clockwise. You should put the descaling solution in the water tank first.
If you have the auto-descale in the menu then run it. Run the solution through the machine twice. Then rinse well.

Brew group/thermostat ?


Definitely sounds like an overheating issue. Especially if you have to wait a half hour for it to cool down and then it brews again. If it is under warranty I recommend replacing it.

The brew group is stuck and will not come out


I hope one of this two solutions solve your problem.

1- The brew group is out of place. Turn the machine on. Close the service door.
The brew group is automatically placed in the correct position.

2-Coffee grounds drawer is inserted. Remove the dregdrawer first, then the brew
group.

What are the specific instructions on how to descale our Gaggia coffee maker? I have the Dezcal descaler pouches.


Can't give specific instructions without knowing which model it is. If it is a super automatic such as the Titanium, you put it into descale mode and then follow the prompts on the display.

If you have a semi automatic such as a Classic or Coffee or Carezza etc. you simply mix the dezcal with warm water in the reservoir and run the pump a little to spurt a few ounces of water out the brew group - and some out the steam wand. Then stop the pump and let it sit for a few minutes - and then start the pump and spurt a little more out the brew group and the steam wand - and so on for about 20 minutes or so until the tank is empty. You get the best results if you let the solution sit in the boiler for a few minutes (maybe 5) between each time you run a few ounces out. After you've emptied the reservoir, rinse the reservoir really well and fill it with clean water and run the whole tank of water through the group and the steam wand (mostly through the group head). I like to rinse a few tanks full just so it is really rinsed well - but one or two tanks is supposed to be enough.

If your machine is a Titanium or Platinum, the readout will tell you what to do - they usually only spurt descaler out the steam wand and not out the brew spout since all the brew parts are plastic and don't need to be descaled. And the steam wand routes the descaler through both boilers so you get all the important parts that way. It'll keep cycling you through opening the steam valve and then waiting 5 minutes and then opening it again - until the tank is run empty (so you may want to mix up the dezcal using less than a full tank (more concentrated) - otherwise it'll take a long time to finish. The dezcal package will recommend how much warm water to use for a package.

The titanium will prompt you through the rinse cycle too - just clean out the tank after you've run all the dezcal through the system - rinse the tank really well and then fill it with clean water and let the machine do the rinse cycle - it will run the entire tank until it is empty. Then you will want to refill the tank with clean water and run a few blank shots - make sure the water from a blank shot is tasting like pure water and doesn't have a citric acid (lemon juice) taste to it - if it tastes like citric acid then you still need to rinse more. The citric acid is not harmful to you - but it will make the coffee taste a bit funny and the milk will foam up funny when you steam it.

Saeco Odea Go - Hot water leaks from bottom of machine


That's leaking from the hoses coming out from the boiler,if the machine is new it should be still under warranty, may have to take it back to the service center.When making coffee the lines are under pressure and the water never have a chance to pass through the ground coffee.

Water does not flow through the coffee group but only exits viasteam pipe. Decalcifying and cleaning or resetting factory settings do not solve the problem. what to do?. The problem occurs after I have...


Hi
When you are finished with steaming, try pushing the steam button again and then opening the steam valve to purge the steam. Do this until the water flows freely. You should hear the pump change tone. If you have a pre grind button, try that without putting any coffee in the pre ground chute, then push a medium coffee. Water should flow through the brew unit freely. If not, you are getting a blockage in the brew unit. If it does, your grind on the machine might be too fine. Change to a coarser grind and try again. It usually takes 3 cycles before the grind is in effect.

Machine does not dispense milk properly


Hi
There is a pin in the cappucinator the needs to be turned slowly to create the venturi action to make it work. If you have lost the pin it won't work.
