    Saeco Incanto Steam Knob popped off

    Hi Guys

    I need some help :)

    The knob on the RHS of my incanto Sirius pooped out this morning, I assume due to a build up off pressure in the machine(steam wand was blocked), I am trying to fit it back into the machine without dismantling it.

    Does anybody have any idea how to do this?

    Thanks

    I have the incanto and Im assuming its the same thing- a silver bumpy knob that operates the steam. Only mine doesnt have a pressure release in it at all! :o
    Ive taken mine off a number of times when dismantling the machine and its a simple process of sliding it back on.
    Are you sure it popped off with the pressure from the steam?
    Unbelievable! I reckon- clear the steam wand with a pin (wear gloves) and then pop the knob back on.

    I am talking about the "silver bumpy knob that operates the steam" :)

    Definately popped off when there was too much pressure build up.
    It seems to have a pin that needs to be pushed in when it is fitted back in.
    I am not sure if this can be done without taking the cover off.

    Thanks for the post rayzurhed, I never realised that the Knob and the plastic assembly were two different parts.

    I was able to seperate the knob from the rest of the assembly and then refit the plastic part to the machine by pushin gin the small part with a screwdriver and then pushing it into place.
