Question about Saeco 00034 Incanto Sirius Super Automatic Espresso/Coffee Machine

Saeco Easy dispenses first, then grinds

After working correctly for a time, my Saeco Easy now has the wrong sequence. When I push the button, it grinds a little (sometimes not at all) dispenses, then grinds again! It's been doing this for about 6 months.

Where do I start to troubleshoot this?

Any help appreciated.

I think you have pre-brewing on your machine, if you have a Sirius then you have these settings in the menu under coffee settings.

I don´t think this is on Saeco Easy, only if you will make two cup of coffee, then the machine will pre-grind the beans for the second cup.

When I push the button to make espresso the water comes out through the hot water/steamer? No coffee is dispensed but seems like all is working inside?

The water pressure is high possible because the grind is really fine, however water is not supposed to go through the valve unless it is open, you might have to replace the steam valve assembly.

I have to put on or run the grinder system more than one time in order to complete the grind cycle. I have to restart three or four times to turn off the red light. What to do to fix the problem

It might be a question of age. The Saeco has a ceramic grinder (instead of steel), and this may simply have worn down over time with use. Is it more than a couple of years old?

If it is older, then you can either accept this, restarting the grinding several times; or you can send it in for servicing. (Be aware that a brief look on Google revealed that there are some people who are very unhappy with Saeco's service department!) Besides sending it to Saeco, there are quite a few other authorized service centers. Just Google "Saeco Easy Espresso service".

If it's not that old - and you're still covered by warranty - then you should contact Saeco.

Finally, don't necessarily trust the red light. I would visually examine the grind, and count how many seconds of grinding it takes before your grind looks & feels right. If this works for you, you can just put a piece of black tape over the light & ignore it, and run your grind for however long it takes to meet your satisfaction.

How do I adjust the volume for each cup of coffee

Push and hold the coffee button you want to program. Do not release this button. It will grind, click 3 times, the the brew unit will cycle up and start to dispense water. When you get the amount of coffee you want for this button, then release the button and its programed. If the button is held more than 3 seconds, it will reset to zero water. Reprogram again.

Saeco Magic Deluxe resets itself before completing brew cycle

Hi Try reprogramming the machine. Push and hold the button for the coffee you want, but hold it all the way through the process. Don't release the button until you get the amount of coffee you want for that button, then release the button. That should get you the same amount next time. You can do this for each coffee button. If that doesn't fix it, then you might need a new flow meter.

Seaco Easy wont work/Warning light blinking always

Try descaling the machine. If there is no water getting to the brew unit then it might be blocked, if you checked the brew unit then the blockage might be at the boiler or one of the lines.

Want to have a coffee using the 2nd coffee grind dispenser

no one has helped me yet. It made a half cup, but I think that may have been a fluke. The 2nd time I tried it to fill up 1 cup of decaf, it again failed. I just can't find my manual.sigh...

Saeco easy

Hi Andrew,

Sorry for the delay, i´m on sick-list and have not access to computer regulary.

Make sure you not get any damp into the grinder.
Try to grind little more coarse to see if the machine will grind the beans.

Have a nice day
