Question about Cecilware Venezia VSE-1

Open Question

Cecilware-Venezia SAE/2N Machine's left side is dispensing at all. Even though pump is trying, but no water is coming out. And dispensing pressure is too low (~4). Is there a way to increase the pressure? Because of pressure is too low, working right side is leaking water where the handle is attached?

Boiler pressure (steamer pressure) is at 0. Usually, when it goes down it comes back up in few minutes but not today. Also, the water coming out for our espresso shots is not as hot as it should be and our...

Problem is either the element, the pressure stat or the reset thermostat on the boiler left side if the model is equipped with one, has tripped, possibly because the machine is low on water in the boiler or the contacts for the pressure stat are damaged or dirty. First I would check the water level in the boiler then remove the left side panel and check the reset switch and press it in, then turn on machine to see if it heats up. If you do not have a reset switch on the machine then check the element and pressure stat to make sure they are working properly, do a resistance test.

First, if water comes out of the wand while you are brewing coffee then the valve has a problem, it might need to be replaced or the pressure buildup is forcing water through. Remove the shower screen and screw in the head and clean, then descale the machine using Scalekleen, vinegar is no the best thing for descaling the machine.

Boiler has quit working

Check to make sure that there is water in the boiler by either checking the sight glass then rocking the machine to see if the water level bobs up and down, then check the thermal reset switch on the left side of the machine above the element. Make sure there is water in the boiler before pressing reset and turning machine to number 2. After machine heats up make sure pressure does not go past 1.5 bars on the gauge. If it does then the p.stat needs to be replaced.

No espresso comes out. the grounds are like

There are a few things that can cause that.
  1. You grounds are too fine. You already have a pressurized portafilter. Your creating too much pressure.
  2. You need to clean your portafilter with espresso machine detergent by brewing it through the portafilter and basket (without coffee). Automatic dish washing detergent can do in a pinch, but has additives. Just a pinch will do.
  3. Your pump is bad and needs to be replaced.

My Saeco via venezia isn't sucking up water for the espresso anymore, how to fix the problem? it isn't even a year old

The only thing that comes to mind is the pump, and an airlock in the hydralic system, try opening the hot water valve it water comes through then the shower screen on the group might be clogged.

No water coming out

check power at the water pump. It is two of them one for icemaker, one for water dispenser. Pump located on the back bottom need a 1/4 nut driver to take bottom panel off. Check power when someone else push water dispenser botton on the front of thr fride...if it is power you have to repalece whoe assembly, if it is not you have dig in deeper in to door dispenser...any question please ask,

Water won't come through my Saeco via venezia coffee machine. It was working fine until I cleaned it so I don't think the pump has gone.

If the pump vibrates when trying to draw water then that is a good sign. Remo;ve the hose on the output side of the pump and turn it on to see if it draws water(BE Careful water and electricity love each other too much), it water flows out the output side, reconnect to boiler and test. If that did not solve the no draw problem then the machine is blocked either at the boiler.

Left power and steamer on overnight and now machine doesn't work

they have a heat fuse attached to the side of the pump so when you do what you did that melts and does not damage the coffee maker
They charge $100 to replace which is a bit tough, you could bypass easily but could damage to machine it not careful
as we have two and one has just stopped pumping, not picking up water so maybe worn valves and I just have it all to bits and saw the heat fuse on the side of the pump,
