Hi all,

I have a Saeco Incanto Classic that is no longer producing steam/water (the pump runs and water is dumped in drip tray somehow).  The coffee side works fine and I can also hear a small amount of escaping steam noises from inside the machine while the steam valve is turned on and for a short while afterwards.

I'm suspecting a seal leak/broken valve/or perhaps pipe crack somewhere inside.

As this machine is a reconditioned model and I'm somewhat mechanically inclined, I thought I'd have a go at fixing it myself.  However, before I crack it open, I'd like to do some research on the internals so that I have a better idea of what I'm looking at.

Can anyone point me toward photos of the interior of an Incanto Classic, as well as parts diagrams?  Also what is the best source for parts (I'm in WA, USA).

Thanks,

Tony.

The steam valve is probably broken. The earlier versions had plastic valves that usually cracked. I am assuming your got jammed?

Here is a website with some parts diagrams. If you order something from saeco make sure they confirm the part to the description. They have multiple models and theu sometimes also change part number. I did the mistake of trusting an old one and got the wrong part :(
