Hardly any brewed coffee comes out and will not stop ventilatng!!!!
First, I had to descale my machine and I tried a new super decal from Switzerland, and ever since then when I brew a cup, the coffee sputters out and it takes about 2 minutes to brew one cup and it is VERY watery. So, I stopped using the machine for about 3 weeks, and now it says to ventilate, and I have ran 8 tanks of water thru it and it still says 'ventilate'! HELP!!!!
Re: Hardly any brewed coffee comes out and will not stop...
If you run water through the wand and the ventilate does not clear then there is a problem with the flow meter. Possible a piece of something got in there and wonlt let it do it's job.
I don't think it is something you are going to be able to deal with.
Do a search for an authorized Saeco repair center and tell them you were told the flow meter may be faulty.

The pipes are blocked with build up scale or water dirt. You can try to descale the machine by adding in the water half cup of lemon juice and brew it without coffee leave if for 20 min and the clean it by brew it with fresh water these will make a diference then try this again in a week.
Sounds like the the shower screen under the red o-ring in the brew group needs to be cleaned, you can remove the screen and clean or you can purchase some espresso machine soap puro caff or puly caff, and run it through the brew group using the preground method the clean out coffee oils.
Have you tried to clean the screen on the brew unit? If yes then try this remove the brew unit, and you will see the white plastic valve, gently lift the little lever to see if water flows out, if it does then problem is in the brew unit. If not then try another descale using scalekleen.
Sounds like the boiler is blocked, and machine needs to be descaled. Try this first remove the parnello if your machine has one on the steam wand then using a paperclip clear out the end of the wand, that might be blocked. If it isn't then run the descale to clear out the blockage in the boiler.
Yup thats the Ticket - EASY FIX -
you have to clean the insides too people... lol.. The best way to do it is to buy citric acid crystals available from your local pharmacy. who knew huh? a couple of tablespoons in distilled water. Brew half the pot and let it sit for 30 min the brew the rest of the pot. Notice the color of your water after your done brewing. probably green from copper.. I could go into much more detail but thats the short answer... brew another pot or two of just plane ole water and bang your good go.. You should do this every month with any coffee pot for better tasting coffee..
