If you receive an error 5 on a Saeco Espresso machine it means that the flow meter and CPU cannot see any water moving through the machine.
- First thing to try is restarting the machine 5-10 times.
- Make sure if you are using a water filter in the water tank remove it.
Depending on what model you have you may have to try to prime through the steam wand.
- On Saeco Experlia you would restart to solve.
- On Saeco Xelsis you would have to restart to solve.
