I have a Saeco water kettle and it will not boil water. I just recently started having this problem. When I push the boil button, the water kettle will glow red for 5 seconds. Afterwards, it automatically shuts off.

The steam mop is bulding pressure at the bottom of the main piece that holds water and starts to push the actual flat mop part out... when I unplugged and took the bottom off of it an explosion of steam...

Yes it does sound like its clogged
Pour some vinegar in the tank and let the base sit in some vinegar for abou a 1/2 hour
Water has minerals in it and by creating the staem they boil out of the water and create what some call "lime" vinegar should disovle these .

be sure to rinse the tank and base before using again

Pipes will not pull apart

depending on the joint but holding it over the steam of a boiling kettle or wrapping a tea towel around the joint and pour boiling water on it, allow to sit 2 minutes then separate. Be careful and wear thick gloves

Water doesn't come out

hi this is very common problem what you need to do is lie the vac on its side then where the water comes out of the little jets at the bottom of the vac these are usually blocked and will need cleaning using a pin to poke through should solve the problem.
If the blockage isnt their then you need to undo the screws on the bottom and keep working your way along the detergent/water lines and keep cleaning them out you will find a blockage along the way.

Try using hot water first empty out all the detergent and just use very hot water (not boiling it will melt the pipes but hot water nearly boiling will do) Keep runnig hot water through the system by pressing the button you press for it to spray the water do this for about 15 min and keep swapping the water for hotter water as it starts to cool doing this 4 or 5 times might solve your problem if not get the tools out and start looking for the blockage.

What happens is when the vac is standing for a while the detergent turns to a gell causing a blockage.

What they dont tell you in the user guide and what they should tell you is that after every use empty out all the detergent and then run warm water through the vac for about 15 min doing this will ensure you have all the detergent out and will make sure you have no further blockage.

Everyone who buys one of these types of cleaners has this same problem so you are not alone.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

It is probably clogged with rust or limescale - can happen with steam cleaners. Sadly there's no way around this but to try a limescale remover in distilled water such as Calgon limescale remover. Fill the kettle as normal and give it time to boil up. Then release the steam as you would normally. You may find that the kettle will spurt out deposits of gunk. Sounds like its definately clogged though.

Can't get it open

had same problem. Tried pouring boiling water over cap and it seemed to loosen some so I boiled more water and put the steamer top down in a bowl in the kitchen sink and pour the boiling water in and let it sit about 5 minutes. It came loose with some effort. The grooves are the opening are metal and they had started to corrode.Once open coat with wd40.

I have a Saeco Armonia Espresso Machine. The water pump was running when the tank ran out of water and when I refilled the tank, it wouldn't start again. I unpugged it and turned everything off overnight....

Common on Armonia...
There is no water in the system, so the pump is pumping air!!
you have to push on the usual button but make sure the hot water button (for tea for ex) on the right side (same as steam opening valve) of the machine is open. This will allow the water to re-flow through the system. Once water is coming out again, close hose, and stop water button. Once hose is closed, and you repush the water button, it will flow again through the coffee hole.

Polti Vaporetto 2400: Water out light comes on when tank is full

Hi you need to put 5ml of Kal Stop fo Polti machines into 1000/1500ml of water into the tank, The stronger solution is better (1000ml) Let it heat up and this should break down the limescale on the solenoid. I tried this today and it has worked saving ££££'s in repair by Polti.
