Saeco Aroma Problems

I'm getting steam from the steamer but when I try to get coffee.. I hear the water pump but I'm not getting any coffee.

When I turn the coffee and the steamer button at the same time, is it normal that I have water coming out of the coffee outlet. ?

Thanks.

Whenever we had this problem we needed to prime the pump. Turn the machine on and wait for the coffee light to come on. Then push the coffee button and turn the steamer on wide open until water comes through the coffee outlet. I hope that helps. The user manual can be downloaded from the saeco site.

You might have too much pressure in the filter basket. Try tamping less or using coarser ground coffee and see if that helps, but it may also be a problem with the pressurized portafilter mechanism (the spring-loaded device under the filter basket). If this is the problem, I would recommend taking the portafilter apart to clean it, in case it is clogged and creating too much backpressure. Remove the 3 screws from the bottom and disassemble -- take care not to lose any of the little parts! Good luck.

Why wont the steamer work


hi,
he pump presses hot water through the grind not steam.
if the coffee is hot and hot water is dispensed, your line are clocked.
descale the machine as directed.
if coffee is cold the heat element is toasted. very unlikely though, since the machine will not dispens coffee, pump running if correct temperature is not reached.
good luck

Sounds like you need to prime the water pump. Remove the filter holder, open the steam knob and then press the coffee delivery switch. Wait for water to flow consistently from the steamer and then close the steam knob. Water should then be forced to flow through the goup head (coffee head). If you cannot get water to flow from steamer then the pump may have already been damaged or it may have been faulty from the start. If water will flow through steamer but not for the coffee, then the group head is blocked. Good luck hope this helps and remember that all machines should be primed like this before use.

No water coming through coffee filter. I have descaled twice. You can hear the pump but no water and then it goes quite with no water. I have tried to prime the pump but still does not work. The steamer is...


If you open the steam tap while the pump is running does water come out? if so then you might have a blockage in the coffee solenoid or the bottom of the boiler. Do you hear a 'click' sound when you hit the coffee switch? If not the coffee solenoid may not be operating. The most common cause of the problem you are having though, is scale flaking off the boiler walls causing a blockage where the coffee water comes out. Try hiting the coffee switch, opening the steamer and then if water starts pumping out, close the steamer and see if water starts flowing out the coffee group. Do this without the portafilter (coffee holder) in place.
If you do get water flowing trough the group, try backwashing the machine.
If these things dont help then you should take it to an authorised repairer or open up the boiler yourself if you are a handy person and have access spare parts. Good luck, these machines can make a great espresso when in the right hands and working order.

My saeco v-spresso no coffee, no steam and no water. I can hear the pump runs for 5 sec. and stops. few drops of water through the steamer.


Press the steam knob in when that happens, if it continues to flow normal then the steam valve assembly needs to be replaced.

Steamer working only intermittendly


Hi
Have you tried to descale your machine. Remember to use the correct descaling powder and make sure that it is totally dissolved before running the descale program. In the menu, make sure that your water hardness is set on 4. descale more often than not enough.

Can't Prime Water Circuit


Hi You need to switch Steam ON so it heats up and then turn Steam button OFF (no light) and then turn steamer knob counter clockwise you will hear the pump start up and then water will stream out. This is when it's primed. Turn steamer clock wise to close. You must do this everytime you use the steamer.

Steamer on gaggia titanium


a. Possible air in the system. Switch to hot water iso steam, let warm water pas for a minute by turning the knob fully open. Stop tapping warm water (close the knob) and switch the machine to steam iso water. Try to get the steam by fully opening the knob (pump should start running). 
b. Solidified milk in the system blocking internal tubes. To avoid this always purge the system (shortly open the steam to an empty cup or a towel) after you steamed milk to avoid milk being sucked back into the system due to condensation of steam (this creates a vacuum and reverse flow). To resolve the blocked tubing: clean the nozzle and try flushing the system (tapping warm water).

Saeco Aroma Espresso Machine.....doesn't draw water.


Hi,

You have to take a bellow pump or similary and fill with water, after that you have to open the steam knob and put force in the water from the bellow pump into the water inlet on the machine.

Hope this will help you, let me know if it works.
