Question about Saeco Vienna De Luxe Espresso Machine

Water leaks during brew cycle

After the beans are finished grinding and the grounds are pressed, I can see a small stream of water trickling out in the gap between the body of the brewer and the swing out door. It is close to the area where the frothing wand is located. It still makes good coffee, but it seems like pressure is escaping from the brewer causing water to leak. Also, as the brewer goes through its cycle and the brew group mechanism is moving, it sounds a bit more noisy than ever before. The brew group is cleaned often and seems to move freely through its range of movements when removed. Any suggestions are appreciated.

You have a split in or a loose conection where the water pipe conects to the boiler so water comes from there and the lack of pressure is making the machine work harder which makes it sound bad

Beans grind and are wet but coffee doesn't come out... it goes through the cycle and spits out a little. When cycle is complete, the water light comes on, but after priming the same thing occurs.


This tells me that either the grind is too fine and or the brew unit screen, and discharge tube needs to be cleaned. Try this first press the button for making a espresso using the manual function, do not add coffee through the door then press the brew button. If water flows freely then the grind is too fine, if you get the water prime error then the screen under the red o-ring on the brew unit needs to be cleaned.

When I turn on the machine, it usually performs a rinsing cycle. The problem I have now is that the screen says rinsing, but no water is coming from the spout. Water seems to be coming from the bottom...


Hi, Its got a blockage. Try removing and cleaning the brew unit, but I can tell you now, it needs to be looked at by a repairer. A normal blockage should leek in to the drain tray, but a leak on the bench means something is split or cracked. I do repairs. Dazza

Is my "brew group" broken.


Remove the brew unit, under the white plastic valve you will notice a small chamber that might be filled with coffee grounds and water. Clean chamber.

No coffee coming out, just hot water


Two questions:
1- Is the coffee grounds wet or dry?
2- Does the spout drip water when the machine is just heating up?
If the grounds are dry then the brew chamber is not getting any water. Turn machine off, let it cool down, then remove brew unit. Behind the brew unit there is a white valve with 2 red o-rings(sometimes black), if you look closely there is a small lever between the o-rings, get a small screwdriver and gently lift lever and spring, if water came out then the problem is in the brew unit, unscrew the stainless steel screen which is under the large red O-ring on the brew unit and clean, also make sure the tube on the unit is clear.
If the hot water spout is not dripping when the machine is heating up then you're good.

Water Problem


You might have a grinder issue. If the coffee is being ground too thin or too coarse it may cause an issue and no coffee will dispense. Here is the link to the grinder cleaning instructions: http://www.cerinicoffee.com/Saeco_technical_documents.asp

Try using straight vinger through the complete cycle then run plain water through the cycle see if that helps. It helps to clean the machine.
