    I forgot to mention the machine that requires venting is a Saeco Magic Comfort Plus machine. Thanks!

    Ok, when I did that the display message read, brew unit miss and then eventually went back to ventilate.

    Is that something I can do myself and if so were would I find the replacement part?

    I think you have to replace the flow meter in your machine.

    If you take off the top then you will see one or two little white plastic with two tubes, that is the flow meter.

I have saeco incanto deluxe coffee machine,ventilate msg appears

Check the end of the steam nozzle, make sure it is not blocked. If not then with the knob open for hot water cycle push in on the knob if that works then the tap rod assemble or the steam valve needs to be replaced.

Brew lit, but "not ready" lit solid "not flashing" fix

There are 4 steps to fix this:

1. Simultaneously press and release "small mug" and "medium mug". Immediately afterward press "menu" 3 times. (Menu is the black button under the display screen.) You should see a time 6:09 on your screen.

2. Press "menu" once. Your LCD screen should say Brew 0:00.

3. (I messed this step up like 10 times and had to unplug the machine, then replug it and start over at step one. You have to unplug if the LCD displays "auto ____". If it continues to flash "Not Ready" and "Brew" then you can just keep trying step 3). Press and hold "medium mug". While holding "medium mug" press and release "menu". Immediately after pressing "menu" (while still holding "medium mug") press "small mug". Release "small mug" and "medium mug" at the same time. This entire thing needs to be done very quickly. as soon as you release "menu" go to "small mug" and release both buttons quickly.

4. Unplug the machine (do not turn it off). Wait for 3 seconds or so. Plug it back in, turn it on and follow the instructions for priming.

I have a Saeco Magic Comfort Coffee machine. The digital display says "Ventalate". What do I do?

Hi There is a push button for water. Its the one that looks like a drop of water. This is what needs to be pushed. You don't open any knobs on a MC+. If nothing comes out when you push listen for a click of a solenoid. You should hear that click. If you don't hear the xclick you have a stuck solenoid. This is usually caused by not descaling enough. Set you water hardness to 4. Always push the "enter or menu" button after making a change to lock.

Ventalate screen

Try this open the hot water valve then push in the steam knob, if that works then contact your nearest distributor and tell them you want a new style steam valve, this valve is stainless steel and works a lot better than the plastic one in the machine.

Close door read out appears

You have a problem with the door alignment and the door switch.. The slightest movement triggers the door switch. You should have someone look at what is causing this issue.

I had this problem on my Saeco Vienna Digital a while back. I read somewhere just to keep on ventilating, even if it took 20 hoppers of water. Sure enough after about 16 cycles, I heard a change in the noise and looked to see the ventilate sign was gone.
