Saeco Incanto Delux. Brew Unit blocked. I was changing water in tank. Places tank back and machine started prior to tank being properly seated. Then machine went into ventilation, then self test, then Brew Unit blocked. Now stays at Brew Unit blocked.
What to do?
my machine ventilate light is on - I have tried to ventilate but no water comes out of the spout - help
We have an Incanto Delux and love it, but I'm extremely frustrated as of late. My coffee grinds and then the machine sounds like its gearing up for prebrewing and then nothing, grounds go into the dredges drawer and it looks like grounds exploded inside as they are everywhere, after several tries it will work sometimes, others with no luck and I end up at the coffee shop. Going without my coffee is a no go with 3 kids including an infant :/ Sometimes if after several tries of it not working, I remove brew unit and rinse, it will then work. I've taken it apart and cleaned it, lubricated it, descaled it, etc and nothing. I'll be at the point of taking it for a service call when it will up and work well for several weeks. I just want to know I can get coffee when I want it! Then this morning it was acting up, it finally after 3 tries said descale, I removed brew unit to try and rinse it off to get out one precious drink and now brew unit won't go back into place. Any help with what to try is greatly appreciated.
What are the differences on the prebrewing settings ON vs LONG? And should i the first portion of the brewing cycle when using prebrewing be discarted?
When I turn on the steam knob, it steams weakly about 30 seconds, then peters out, sometimes sputters back with another 30 seconds of weak steam, but ultimately stops and says CLOSE KNOB, then VENTILATE.
Brewunit blocked message. Had repaired authorized dealer. He replaced gears. Worked for a few brews now message brewunit blocked again
On start up, I am getting the display blinking "self-test", and the usual pre-rinse does not happen anymore. Once it has stopped this clicking (like it was trying to do something), it says ready for use. Press the button, and then it grinds, then goes back to the "self-test" display again. The dredge drawer has the grinds, but no coffee comes out. After 2-3 of these, it will then (finally) make a cup of coffee. I have taken it apart, cleaned the whole machine out, cleaned the ceramic grinder, de-scaled, etc...nothing has helped.
We purchased a Saeco Incanto just over 2 years ago, and have had nothing but trouble. We have returned it 3 times and it just failed again this morning. No water will come through the steamer. Just cleaned it last night. Only use bottled water. Did we get lemon? What can we do?
I have unit 3 months now, I clean every 2 weeks and descale when light flashes. The last week it has slowed down in brewing the cup of espresso and now it has stopped all together. I decided to turn it off, clean it and then turn on and descale it. After turning back on it wont load the circuit and keeps flashing that request. Now it is stuck in the "load circuit mode". HELP
which is better, the ceramic burr/grinder or the original metal?
