Hi,

Try this:

Standard descaling
Switch off the machine.
Pour a descaling product into the water tank.
Switch the machine on to the programming mode(see below). Place a large container under the steam/hot water dispensing tube and open the steam/hot water knob slowly, turning it counterclockwise.
Turn on the machine by pressing the main switch and let the descaling product flow out of the dispensing tube for approx. 1 min.
Close the knob again.
Turn off the machine with the main switch and let the solution take effect for approx. 5 minutes.
Repeat this procedure two or three times, to allow all of the descaling product in the water tank to flow out of the dispensing tube.
As soon as descaling has been carried out, rinse the tank thoroughly and fill it with fresh water.
Switch on the machine and let fresh water (approx. 2 l) flow out of the steam/hot water dispensing tube in order to rinse away residue.
The machine is now ready for operation.

When the machine is on, the warning light switches off automatically, by pressing the steam selection button for at least 5 seconds.

To enter the programming mode, turn the machine
off with the main switch.
Press steam , espresso coffee and the
main switch at the same time.

Release the buttons.

Hope this will help you.

SOURCE: Magic Comfort Plus Espresso Machine: how to descale saeco magic comfort...

  • The first thing you need to do is go to your menu. Scroll down to water hardness and push the enter button. Use your up arrow and move the number to 4 if it is not already there. Push the enter button. Once it is on 4, then scroll up to descale machine and push enter. Have your solution (NOT VINEGAR) Citric Acid dissolved in solution and put into water tank. Now open the knob for steam and let the machine do its thing. When it is all done it will say "Finished descaling". Rinse out the water tank and put in fresh water. Close the knob and then reopen it again. When it finished rinsing scroll down to "Reset Descale" Push enter and choose "Yes" with the arrow and push enter. This will bring up a message when it needs to be descaled again. You can also see how many coffee’s you have made. It’s just above the Descale Machine in your menu. Descale more often than Not Enough will keep your machine working well into the future.

Hi
In the menu there is a program below the descaling program that says Reset descale. Enter this program and choose "yes", and make sure that you push the enter button to lock your answer. If you don't it will still be there.
Also go to your water hardness and move it to the #4. This will prevent you from having to replace the boiler sooner than needed. Descale when told to by the machine.

To descale or not to descale


Hi
Descaling is like changing the oil in you car. If you don't do it its not going to last. If you don't do it when it tells you and you have a lot of minerals in the water, those minerals will plug up the boiler and then you will have to replace it. Which is easier, and cheaper?

Temperature control on Saeco magic deluxe


No it cannot. I am not sure why you would want the water hotter. It is designed to be at the perect temperature for passing through the brew group for coffee brewing, its kind of a simple science. 
If your machine has been producing less hot coffee gradually, that marks an issue. Try descaling the boiler per the manufacturer's inscrutions even if the warning light isnt on. The other option is that the thermal fuse mounted to the boiler is bad and turns off the boiler prematurely, those cost about $15 and are simple to replace. Lastly, the boiler heating element may be 'burnt out' new boiler is $120+

Coffee not dispursing


Puddle under the machine means the boiler has broken. Whatever you do do not use the machine any more as the boiler could spray the pc board. If that happens your s.o.l. as saeco does not carry the board any longer. You can send it to a service center and have the boiler replaced. Lowest charge i've seen is $180.00 usd plus shipping and service charge. The boiler always breaks due to hard water and calcium buildup threw the machine and not descaling it. Also happens when machine is left on 24/7. If you have the boiler replaced, use only bottle water and turn off the machine when not in use. Also the machine MUST be descaled bi monthly.

Saeco Magic Deluxe - trouble light on


Not sure which light you are refering to because the far right light shuld be temp ready light. The one you describe slunds like the descale light but that shouold be second to from the left. In which case it is telling you to descale. I can't attach a manual here so do a search for saeco repair and an authorized repair center should be able to get you one.
