Question about Saeco Vienna SuperAutomatica Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Heat temp and time

HI, thanks for your previous answer! i have a new question. My 1985 Saeco SuperAutomatic Electronic is in near new condition, but it is taking about 10 minutes to initially heat up and several minutes between shots. It used to take 2 minutes to heat up and go from shot to shot with no problem. It has always been unable to heat water past 160 and is usually 145-150 for shots and tea water. It will heat up enough to make steam for lattes though. I do have a little problem getting a good froth and I wonder if its lacking something there.
Do you think I need a new thermostat or boiler?
thanks again,
Suzy

    Is it possible that descaling would fix the temperature problem too?

When a machine takes a longer time to heat up, this is often due to scale on top of the heating element, try using a descaler product, and running a descale cycle a couple of time.

If it is not a scale problem, then it is usually a faulty thermostat or a faulty element.

My saeco xsmall has red light continuously on after rinsing


You have to turn the button to the side where is the icon of the cup.
Then you have to wait until the machine stops running water by itself.

When it is a faulty thermostat water gets hotter than normally.

WAter is not running through espresso and low temp


I understand that you have ran lots of water through the machines, but you need to descale the espresso machine so that you are sure all the lines are clean and not clogged.

If you need a good descaler you can purchase it http://cerinicoffee.com/Dezcal_descaler_4pack.asp
This is the descaler we use at our location.

Superautomatic esspresso machine problem


You will probably find that the small holes in the filter are blocked with grounds of a perfect plug like size.

I carefully removed the filter plates and cleaned them thoroughly on mine and all was well.

Got to www.saeco.it and look up a service center. They should be able to provide you with a panarello.
