When I turned on the steamer, steam or smoke came
You did very well to switch it off since steam could harm the electronics.
However this is a frequent problem with espresso machines. The steam is coming from the boiler with pressure by tube made from Teflon and it is secure on the steam wand union with the easy secure system. This is using an o ring rubber and a copper ring forced in the union and secured with a clip.
Sometimes the clip get out of this place so the Teflon tube is out too or the o ring it is have a leak and in both cases the steam is all over inside the machine.
The problem is sometime caused because the steam wand becomes goggled by dry milk so the steam with pressure will force the tube to come out from a loose point.
Therefore your machine actually have not any serious problem the only thing is to remove the top panel find the loose tube and put it back is place. If you don’t see the clip on place you search for it around the bottom of your machine.
Use also a thin paper clip inside the steam wand so it will open completely and try to use the machine without the panels in order to visual check that the steam is coming from steam wand and you don’t have any steam leaks in other places.
If you are not capable doing the above yourself then if you ask a professional do it for you just take care to charge you only a labor cost of 30 min and maybe a new clip.
Take care and if you need anything more just comment it back.

We get the message Unit Cal.Fied - what to do?
You need to run the Decalcyfying program. Push and hold the button with the symbol that looks like a tube with small dots inside. You will get the message empty tray and empty grounds. Do so, and put everything back. The message Solvent or Agent in tank will be displayed. Meassure up 700ml water in a container, put 3 Descaling tablets in the water and let it be completly desolved before you pour this into the empty watertank. It`s very important that you don`t use more liquid, this will make the program run forever. When the solvent is in the tank, push the buttoun again, and the program starts. After a while (20 minutes or so) you will be asked to empty tray/grounds again and to fill the watertank. At this point you can fill up the watertank, this will not affect the running of the program. In the end, you must empty tray/grounds again, and after this the machine is heating up and ready to use. Good luck!

Hi, our Jura Impressa Xs90
Have you run a decal recently? This normally happens when a small particle (normally) an undesolved piece of the decal tablet is stuck in the flow meter, or sensor.
You can try and run warm water through the system and after about half a tank it should be sorted out.
