Question about Saeco VIA Veneto Espresso & Coffee Maker

1 Answer


I have a second-hand Saeco Via Veneto which worked a couple of times after I purchased it, then is started exploding meaning the pump explodes out, leaving coffee powder all over the machine, kitchen counter, floor etc. Can anyone tell me the reason for this? Is there a way to prevent this "explosion" from happening again?

I think your machine is overheated, try to replace the thermostat on the boiler.

I have the via veneto model that has the rubber tube that draws the milk in. It doesn't seem to build enough pressure now to do it. I have been cleaning and descaling it on a regular basis. The expresso...

There is a pin on top of the cappuccinator the will twist to create suction. Turn it slowly when steaming until it starts to draw milk up to foam. Then leave it. If you don't have the pin, thats your problem.

The steamer on our Espresso machine is not working

Try using a paperclip or needle to clear out the holes on the end of the steam wand. That will usually work if when you turn on the wand it is hot to the touch and you can still get hot water from the coffee spout.

Via Veneto will not prime

Yes, unfortunately the Via Veneto is a difficult machine to prime, however, I have a simple way to prime the pump if you run into this problem. Simply remove the water tank, fill a clean turkey baster with water, open the steam valve fully then mate the baster tip with the water tank flow valve on the espresso machine. Wrap a towel or paper towel around the flow valve/baster tip then inject the water (agressively, but not forcefully). It's works for me every time.

Via veneto won't make coffee

I removed the top filter where the water comes out and cleaned it good with a pin for all the holes, then I did the same for the coffee filter. I found alot of the holes plugged which would avoid the from alowing the coffee to come out.

Now it works like new.
