Question about Saeco Vienna De Luxe Espresso Machine

Saeco vienna Deluxe grinder doesn't work properly

Each time I put the machine on is starts to turn but not how it normally does and the red light turns on. Can the grinder be blocked If you start the machine, is the part of the grinder who sits by the beans (where they fall into the mill)also turning?

Thanks for your reactions

    Hi Mirran,

    I tried already all these things but it doesn't work.

    I supose that you have the same machine? Wenn you put it on you are hearing normally the brooming of the internal mechanism. Now I hear a bit of noise of something that is turning than is quiet for a second and than I hear an other noise of something that is turning. In the mean time de red light is burning.

    Wenn you start up your machine, is there any movement at the beans?

Try to open the steam knob and make a cup of water.
Make sure everything is in place.

One more thing you can try is:
open the door, take out the brewing unit, driptray and dregsbox.
Look in the machine and you will see three hole, one in the lower left corner, one in the middle above the driving shaft and one in the right upper corner.
Turn on the machine and put a screwdriver in each hole and see if the lights go off.

Hope this will help you.

    Hi Marc,

    I don´t own that model but i repair all of the Saeco models at a Saeco Service Center in Sweden for 5 year now.

    When you turn on your machine then it should do the self test but not run the grinder.

    If you hear a "cracking" sound when it do the self test then i think the gears to the brewing unit has to be replaced.

My sony rear projection tv's red light started blinking 8 times, so I removed the high vltage splitter, so I needed to test the block. And you guys are sugesting for me to turn on the tv, now do I

Turn on very briefly and make sure the large red wire that entered the block is well away from any metal---if hear a frying sound and blink sequence is gone the block is bad( I used to put the wire into a old soda bottle as it has over 20 thousand volts coming out of it, much like the spark plug wires in a car---high voltage with low current.

What does it mean when the green LED light and the alarm light are both permanently on at the same time. There is a full tank of water, service door has been opened and shut and the dreg drawer is empty...

Hi, Turn off the machine and turn back on again. If both lights are permanently on that means you need to empty the dreg tray. Pull out the tray and wait until the red light start flashing, then put back the tray, the red light will go off.
Another meaning is when you press the coffee button and see the red light came on, that means the grinder motor is not working. Hope it will help.

Thanks for the reply :)


It could be the grinder or power board that is the problem, if it was my machine i should replace the grinder.

Try to set power to the grinder, look at the grinder to make sure what volt it should have before you by a new. If the grinder start when you power it then i think your power board must be replaced.

Let me know if i can help you more.

Best regards

Stuck grinder


make sure you not get any damp into the grinder. If you have damp in the grinder then it do not grind the beans.

I think you have to take it to a Saeco service center, they have to upgrade your power board in the machine.

Indesit W123 washing machine

it maybe your brushes are worn out, on alot of machines these days if the brushes wear the machine wont fill , or your motor itself could be faulty or your board. Unplug the machine , take the back off , get yourself a test meter disconnect the motor and put the probes from the meter and put it across the tags, if the motor is wrong you wont get continuity between 2 tags normally 1 and 5 looking from the top of the block going down
