Question about Saeco Vienna SuperAutomatica Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Hi - the machine works fine except that it leaks into the drip tray and kicks beans out, sometimes onto the floor. I have lots of tools and feel good about taking it apart, but need to know what parts (gaskets, o-rings etc.) if any I should have on hand. Thanks.

I had a similar problem. I opened and closed the water tank, the top coffee bean coffee and the dreg door several times. I even 'stirred' the coffee beans a bit. Finally, after simply taking the coffee bean cover off and putting it back on, the light went to green. Even now, several months later, I sometimes have to open and close everything to make the green light come on, although it seems to be getting better with age. (like me :-))

Hi
Excess water going into the drip tray is usually an indication of the grind being to coarse. If your pucks are not solid but just fall apart this is the case. When the grinder is grinding, turn the big knob in the bean hopper down 2 numbers smaller and see if this changed. If you have a second knob in the bean hopper change the to the plus side, but not all the way to the plus. Do this first before you change the grind setting. Excess air between the grind allows more water in the brew unit and when it is done it goes into the drip tray.

Hi
When the machine is done brewing some water is relieved into the drip tray. This is the pressure relief. Some coffee residue is also taken into the drip tray. This is normal. As long as nothing is under the machine your OK.

Hi, Franke Saphira. 'Empty Drip Tray' message doesn't shift when in descale mode - not in any other mode though, only when trying to descale. Any ideas? Cheers


If you keep the empty drip tray message, especially after making a drink or cleaning operation this points to a leak internally on to the drip tray contacts. or from the thermoblock leaking onto the wiring loom behind the front door panel. An engineer will be required to fix this as the correct seals will be needed. I have been a Franke Service Engineer for 15 Years.

Hi - a couple things... 1-Coffee is bitter + not creamy (I know it is not the bean b/c it produces nice a smooth creamy coffee in another machine) 2-water leaks into the drip tray (sometimes grind too)


One possibility is that the grinding is too fine and the coffee is running slowly. Turn the coffee grinder udjust so the coffee will be more groase and the coffee will run faster. For a 30 cc coffee need around 20-25 sec.

I put beans in where the grinds should go. help!?


Hi
Open the door and remove the drip tray. Then remove the brew unit and empty the beans. Make sure that you get all the beans. Check the brew unit thoroughly. Then put everything back. Try the pre ground button but don't put anything in the brew unit then push the medium coffee button. That will run the machine through a brew cycle and if it works OK then you set to go.

Empty Drip Tray message


Try to clip off the tray contacts and clean behind them. If they are dirty and wet on the backside the machine will keep asking you for Empty tray. Use a small screwdriver and clip them off from the inside of the tray

I have a BUNN VPS that leaks water when we make coffee. I have removed the top of the maker and watched, but I can not see the leak.


There is a significant amount of plumbing inside one of these. I think it will have to be taken apart to find the leak -- these leaks are very common and sometimes very difficult to stop (kinda like a roof leak).

Leaking Water shorts out machine


I had the same problem. What may be the problem is the tiny water drip hole that feeds the drip tray is blocked with coffee sludge. Open the machine and remove the dump bucket, drip tray, and the brew group. Behind the brew group is a flat plastic piece which has a small drip hole at the bottom of it. This may be blocked which causes the water that should go into the drip tray to build up and overflow inside the machine running onto the countertop. Clean out the area behind the little drip hole and the hole itself. This should cure it.
