Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Excessive water collected in the tray when making coffee

History:Have the machine approx, 5 years, 1 year ago the motor was replaced. I Descale the machine once per month. It seems there is a problem with the water flow of the machine. and during grinding of the coffee the machine is very noisy. The last descaling there was already this noise and after the descaling we had the problem with water. In addition since the motor was replaced the the heating shelf is now constantly boiling hot and the replace the button cap with other ones so there is now no option to turn this off. Help we have spent around 500eur on it so far and i would like to have a problem free machine.

Hi,

It can be the flow meter that needs to be replaced.
Make sure the filter in brewing unit is clean.

Hope this will help you.

Error code 5 on saeco minuto coffee machine


Error code 5 means the water flow is obstructed. Here are possible locations:
1- The machine was not descaled. Calcium deposits are clogging the water system.

2- The flow meter is not passing impulses for water flow speed & quantity.

3- Descale Descale Descale.
Before you select the automatic descaling, make a few espresso without adding coffee grounds. The automatic cycle does not clean the coffee side of the machine. You have to do it intentionally.

Loud drilling noise when coffee switch is turned on - rather than the usual purring noise - and no coffee delivery either


How old is your machine ? and what maintenance have you done over time such as replacing the shower curtain located at the pourring end of the hot water ? I had too very loud noise coming occasionnally from the stainless steel rack holding the cup while coffee is delivered. If your ground coffee is too fine it will stop flow during making a shot. Is water coming out when no coffee is placed in the portafilter.The water pump on this machine is a cheap pump that has to be replaced over time. Mine is 7 years old and has delivered four cups of expresso everyday of the year, and still working.3841c994-fb4b-459f-8d1f-710e0aafc3c0.jpg 2ead4f70-37c6-4236-a9c2-992dba149c4c.jpg

Can you descale a coffee machine with white vinegor ?


Yes. A 20% solution of white vinegar will descale any coffee maker. I prefer to run straight water for 1 cycle after this process to ensure no vinegar aftertaste remain. I've been using white vinegar to descale my coffee makers for years and it works great.

Hi Robin,
I had this problem a year ago. Two things to check: 1. Does the water tank go all the way down so that the small notch at the back of the tank fits into the floor of the machine? 2. Any dirt at the water tank outlet?
Besides these two issues, I would say that it is very likely that the problem is that the valve of the water tank needs to be replaced. This will especially happen if the machine has been lefter without water in the tank for some time.
Good luck.

if you clean your brew unit and coffee lines infrequently you're coffee may taste differently when you do get around to cleaning them.

If you are not happy with the taste, I would receommend the following steps
1. A Good Descale (See our article here for on Descaling your Coffee Machine for details) - This will remove excess mineral build up.
2. Try a Saeco Cleaning Tablet in your brew unit - this will remove excess organic build up (Coffee and Grease)
3. Use only filtered water
4. Rinse your brew unit every time you empty your coffee dreg drawer

That should bring your machine back to optimal coffee making condition. If you are still not happy, try some different coffee blends for a while - a change can be as good as a holiday
