Question about Saeco Magic De Luxe Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Leak Our Saeco is about five years old and has been relatively problem free. A few days ago we experienced a leak that overflowed the small tray that collects excess ground coffee directly below the bean receptacle inside machine. While cleaning the machine thoroughly, we noticed that there was a buildup of soggy coffee in the hole that you see after removing the brew group near where the waste plugs accumulate. After cleaning this up, we reassembled and have no further leaks however the coffee just doesn't quite taste right. Any suggestions?

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

Saeco magic deluxe is leaking water


Either two faults, one is that the boiler is leaking ( fix this straight away as water can spray on main circuit board and short out ) very costly to repair if both needs replacing. Second the water runoff to the front tray is blocked with coffee grime . Instead of the water left over when the brewer dissengages running off to the front tray it overflows into the machine. Hope this helps

Liquid leak while Vienna runs...but where from?


You may have a cracked coil inside the boiler and cracked nut of the coil going up to the wiring lug. Check it out, it will be a hair thin crack, almost invisible.

Saeco Incanto power loss.


You either have two things i think, my first thought is a leak.
The two most usall leaks on a incanto is either from the boiler or the steamvalve.

alitle more long shot is a defective fuse on the bioler.

Saeco Incanto not grinding


Hi Chris,

The leaking is your steam valve that has to be replaced, you can see this if you open the door and look up in the right corner there you will see water drip.

If not then you have a pipe or boiler leak.

How old is your machine?
How often do you descale the machine?

When you try to make a cup of coffee, starts the grinder for two seconds or is it dead?

Hope this will help you.

Water Leaking and not coming out from the nozzel


Thank you thank you!!! This problem has been irking us for months! The people in our company adore the coffee the Saeco Incanto Sirius makes so we just lived with the leak. The fix was such a simple thing, heh.

I used a cable tie to clean out the hole. The hole is very small - a design mistake, I'd say - and when I unclogged it I could see the cable tie coming out and coffee sludge flowing into the drip tray.

Leaking Water shorts out machine


I had the same problem. What may be the problem is the tiny water drip hole that feeds the drip tray is blocked with coffee sludge. Open the machine and remove the dump bucket, drip tray, and the brew group. Behind the brew group is a flat plastic piece which has a small drip hole at the bottom of it. This may be blocked which causes the water that should go into the drip tray to build up and overflow inside the machine running onto the countertop. Clean out the area behind the little drip hole and the hole itself. This should cure it.
