Descale and ventilate

Our machine is directly connected to mains water.
We have tried pressing the hot water button but get nothing but a slight hum. Someone suggested pump may be dead??

    Yep I got the same problem though I was able to fix my problem in 2 different ways. After having so many problems with SAECO machines over 9 years we gave up and bought a different machine.

    1. I released the air through the steam nozzle and then ran the hot water until the message went away.

    2. I bought a different brand machine AND we love our Sunbeam cafe series EM6910

Hi,

I think your magnetic valve have to be replaced.
It can also be stop in the pipe to the rapid steam boiler in your machine.

I need to descale my machine, now the screen says descale and "purge" and nothing happens when I press hot water on OR want to let steam out


There is a blockage in the steam/hot water circuit . Try poking the end of the steam tip on wand with a paper clip. Make sure turn the hot water on by pressing the hot water button and turning the steam wand.

Cappuccinatore and steam does not work


Does water come out of the wand when you press the hot water button (top left)? Try ventilating and descaling the machine. More details about each can be easily found by googling.

No water comes out on ventilate. At first, the water was coming out very slowly, in drips. The doser or grind were not the problem, because even when I switched to Hot Water, it was still dripping. ...


Hi
It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to properly descale the machine. If it only took a couple of minutes you really didn't descale your machine. If you used the powder it has to disolve completly before descaling. The best way to descale is with the descaler in the tank. Turn on the machine and run about 8 ozs of water-descaler through the wand and then turn off the machine. Wait 10 minutes and repeatthe last procedure. Do this until the tank is empty. When done with the descaler, rinse out the tank and put fresh water in the tank and run the whole tank through the wand. Then fill the tank and your ready to go.

Press the hot water button and allow water to flow from the steam arm until ventilate disappears and warming up appears on the display.

My coffee machine says "ventilate"


When it says to ventilate, it is asking you to prime the pump. Put acup under the panarello wand ( the steamer/frother) to catch thedischarged water and press the hot water button (upper left button onmy machine). Wait until air stops coming out with the water, usually3-5 ounces, and then press the hot water button again.

You machine is now ventilated (primed) and should be ready to go.

How do I descale the saeco magic deluxe coffee machine?


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.
