Question about Saeco Odea Giro Plus Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Are you supposed to remove the chrome sleeve on the steam wand after every use? The machine worked great when I purchased it on April 1, 2011,but I have not had the same results with frothing since then. I have made sure when reattaching the sleeve that it is firmly in place. Any suggestions?

Steam wand on Vienna plus detached from arm


Lets first make sure you have all the parnello wand parts. The nut, hard plastic gasket, soft rubber gasket, the inner wand then the sleeve and the center in the sleeve. When putting it back together find the notch on the metal steam wand and slide the nut onto the wand, then add the rest in the order above.

Ventilate!....shows in window and machine will not ventilate when knob is opened. it has regularly been de-scaled but we do live in a hard-water area.


Generally you can clear the ventilate error by pressing the button for Hot Water and then opening the steam knob. You should hear the pump run and water should start to flow from the steam wand. If it doesn't, try removing the frother nozzle so just the chrome pipe is showing.

To remove the frother nozzle you slide the outer sleeve off, and then grip the nozzle with one hand while twisting the cap to loosen it. Then it should slide off the metal steam pipe. Or you can check that the tip of the nozzle isn't clogged.

If you have the frother removed and the steam pipe is definitely open and not clogged and you still hear the pump running but no water is coming out, the next step is to prime the pump.

If you still have the squeeze bulb pump that came with the machine, you can use that - or if you don't have it, a turkey baster will work. You want to take the water tank off and set it aside, then pump water into the valve in the center where the tank had been sitting. You choose "Hot Water" and open the steam valve so the pump starts and then pump water into that valve with the Turkey Baster. You should hear the pump catch and start to move the water - when this happens immediately close the steam valve so the pump stops - then replace the water tank (filled with water please) and open the steam valve again and let water run out of the steam wand for several seconds.

That should clear the ventilate message.

Can't get steam from the a Starbucks Saeco Italila Digital Auto


Hi If you can get water to flow from the wand, you can descale the machine. You might have a bad steam boiler. There is also a fuse on the boiler that might be bad. Set your water hardness to 4 to keep the machine working for a long time. Descale more often than not enough.

Steam Wand Leaking on La Pavoni Espresso Si


I HAD the same problem. I fixed it for 50 cents. It takes the removal of 4 screws (2 phillips on top, 2 long standard on bottom by the group) to remove the top to access the steam wand valve. Once the the top (and the chrome bezel) is removed, then screw out the valve counterclockwise buy ALL THE WAY until it comes out. There are 2 O-rings on the stem of the valve that wear out, Cut these off with a sharp knife, go to your local hardware store, buy 2 new ones for 50 cents, install new O-rings, and reverse the disassembly procedure. Voila, no more leaky steam valve!

I need a replacement steam wand sleeve


I called them about the same problem, they can only sell the entire wand assembly, not the teeny washer that I lost. $35. If I knew what it looked like I wonder if I could find something at a hardware store.

Milk not frothing


Remove the black plastic outer sleeve of the Frothing Wand (some models have a metal outer sleeve). If done correctly, the “sleeve” has been removed, but the inner wand with red or black washer, is still connected to the machine.
2) The part of the sleeve assembly that you have removed is comprised of 2 pieces, the frothing sleeve and the center piece. The center piece can be seen if you look into the top of the wand.
3) Using a pencil (eraser end), or similar shaped object, push down on the center piece until an audible “click” is heard. The “click” means that the centerpiece is back into the proper position. When in the proper position, the center piece visibly sticks out the bottom of the sleeve about ¼-inch. It looks like a bird beak.
4) Now put the sleeve back on the machine and your machine should be ready to froth again.

I have just had a similar problem. Water no longer moves through the steam wand when I try to prime it. Instead, water shoots through the shot handle (or screen if handle is not in).

One thing I did notice is that the dial for the steam wand unscrewed too far and basically popped out. I screwed it back in and the water did not ever come out of the wand again. I took the top lid plate off and unscrewed the wand dial and removed it. I put it back and noticed that there is a little metal spring switch underneath that I assume turns the wand pump on.

Attached to the dial is a plastic sleeve with a flat side. When the dial is turned, this sleeve should turn the switch on. I noticed though that the sleeve is creeping up the shaft towards the dial head which makes it miss the spring switch.

I don't know what kept the sleeve in place before. Probably a plastic stop that has been worn away from use. There is an allen screw in the sleeve, but tightening it doesn't seem to keep it in place. Perhaps inserting a spring in between the dial and the sleeve would work, but the sleeve cannot be taken off to do this. No other answers right now. My wife is not happy the lattes have dried up.

Krups 867 boiler steam leak


Save yourself the trouble, buy a $1.99 frother at Ikea.  Makes the cleaning process easy - that's what I use at home, never used the steam wand on my machine.
To use the frother, just heat up the milk and froth away.  Pretty easy.
