Question about Saeco Vienna SuperAutomatica Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine

Open Question

Bellows Pump Can you tell me what is a Bellows Pump and where I might be able to get one? After not having used my machine for about one week, I turned it on, attempted to steam, and no steam came out. The steam knob popped out. I pushed the steam knob back in, attempted to get steam again, and then heard a loud noise and steam came hissing out of the sides of the machine. Then it shut down the power. After this happened I tried to prime the machine. In trying to prime it, I find that it turns on, the pump starts working, but no water comes out, then the power shuts off. The water then leaks out of the bottom. I wanted to try the manual prime, but don't know what a bellows pump is. Also, can you suggest any other fix? Thanks!

When you get the bellows repair kit for your model, it should have the instructions and all the necessary parts for replacement.
You may need to use some muscle to replace it and may take 1 to 2 hours to complete. If you have trouble finding the part or if there are not sufficient instructions included, then email  back! ok?

SOURCE: How to replace the door bellows seal ?

did hte rear clamp come off or just the front spring. assuming its just front spring.carefully reinstall the boot over the front lip assy . easy enough!!here comes the fun!! the spring itself goes to the bottom of the rim.So hang the wire over the top of bellow and feed into the lip evenly as you go down both sides as soon as you get your hands to the 9oclock and 3 oclock positon I then change grip on the spring (use the tips of my fingers palms facing front assy and strech whole pushing down and in. I used to find small spring style clamps would work great for holding the wire in place till it would "pop" into place. a third hand is also very useful to hold in place .

I have not seen a tech sheet (or service manual) that details how to remove one of these. Basically, once you have your replacement boot (availible at local parts stoares or from the manufactures web site on line), You can follow these steps:
1 - Remove the front clamp. (a silver peice of wire with a spring at the botom) A small flat head screwdriver will let you pull it off.
2 - You will have a clamp on a hose that comes from the dispenser to the boot on some models that you will have to disconnect.
3 - There is a second clamp on the tub side itself. Remove it by using a short phillips head screw driver to unscrew it.
4 - remove the boot
5 - Reverse the procedure making sure to line the new boot up at the top. (there is a arrow that needs to be ligned up on the tub and the boot.
Taking the lower front panel off can give you a bit more room to work. You can take it off by removing the screws at it's bottom.

Turn machine on and make sure that the knob is fully opened, if the pump does not engage(vibrate) then either the machine is not getting power or there is a problem with the pump.

Will I still get coffee if the pump is broken. The machine is leaking staem and water underneath and I beleive it is the staem valve but a 'dodgy' coffee machine repairman is telling me it is the...


Hello,

I am an expert espresso certified man. First of all your repair man is wrong. Let me explain. If you are getting steam at all, then your pump is not broken. This is the way it works, you have water in your machine, it goes into a area where it heats the water by heating elements, then as it heats it builds pressure by air and heat. The machine has a water pump in it, that operates by of course electricity, it pumps the water that is heated by the elements through the machine to of course make shots of espresso. The steam part is simular as it goes in a area, the gets hot and produces steam from the water, like a iron would of press kind of method. THE MACHINE will not make coffee or steam if pump is not working. If you turn machine on, and hear it humming or running, when trying to make a cup, then motor is running, if you turn it on and try to make a cup of coffee or steam and hear nothing at all, then pump is not working. If your machine is leaking under machine from from the steam valve, means it would not do that if pump is not working. Sense it is leaking, this tells me it is clogged. Most likely your need your machine cleaned good, that means descaled. Clean hoses, use small needle to poke in end of steam wand to clean out good jet air holes and basket screen. Find your manual, and it should tell you how to properly clean your machine, and even can use can of compressed air, that you can spray in hoses. It appears to be it is clogged, and when the pump or lines are clogged , it will back up like a clogged toilet and flood area around base and underneath. This whole problem is a cleaning problem, do to a clog or build up. I hope this. PS no if you pump is out or clogged, you would not get coffee as it need to the pump to work (unclogged) to push the water through the heads. Thanks Mike

Proper way to descale an espresso machine.


Hi
I have seen all ways to descale espresso machines on this and other sites and most are wrong!
Never leave the machine heating while the descaler is in the boiler. It's OK for a few seconds but never for minutes or hours. It will turn your seals hard as a rock and the machine will start leaking. If your machine is leaking you probably left your machine on while it was descaling. Factory programs, if used do not turn the boilers on in the descale mode for this very reason.
If your machine has a factory descale mode, use it. All factory descaling programs use the flow meter to regulate the descaling. The flow meter tells the computer how much water has gone through the boiler. when the machine is out of water the flow meter will stop turning and the computer knows the machine has used up all the descaler, and it will want to be rinsed. Remember the pump has to stop on its own for the computer to know it's done! Again the flow meter will tell the computer it is rinsing and when it is again out of fresh water it will tell the computer it is done rinsing and the descaling message or light will disappear. Remember the pump has to stop on its own for the computer to know it's done! It may say descale on some computers and there is a program for resetting the descale. It's in your menu as "Reset Descale". Choose "Yes" and push the menu button to lock. It's all regulated by your water hardness. I have mine set on 4 and my water is very good. I have over 20,000 drinks, and the original boiler. Saeco(Starbucks) Barista Digital.
This method can be used on any espresso machine.
1. Remove the water tank and fill half way with fresh water.
2. Mix your descaling powder (Citric Acid or Durgol Never use Vinegar) in a glass of warm water. When dissolved pour into water tank.
3. Open steam knob. Have a large bowl under the wand to catch the water expelled from wand.
4. Turn on machine (automatics will cycle then start pumping water) Regular espresso machines you will need to turn on the brew button.
5. When the pump has expelled about 8 ozs through the steam wand turn off only the power button. Leave the other buttons and knobs alone.
6. Wait about 10 to 15 minutes for the descaler to work, then turn the power button on and run another 8 ozs through the wand and turn off the power button.
7. Repeat step 6 until the water tank is empty. (machines that have magnets in the water tank will not let you pump the water tank dry but they have programs built in to use that will)
8. Once the tank of descaler is empty, rinse out and fill with fresh water.
9. Open steam knob and run the complete tank of fresh water through the boiler without stopping, and once its complete refill with fresh water and your ready to go.

Keuring coffee maker B60 B70 B77reservoir full but fails to refill, brewing...


After a brief investigations found out that this is a design problem for all the newer Keurings like B60, B70, B77, Keuring factory after a lot of complains of a noisy refill pump this is the pump which pressed water from reservoir tank into the brewer. (Please to mixed it with the second pump that presses the hot water through the K-cup this is a different one).
In the place of that pump now they are using a small DC motor and impeller pump, which is much quieter however the new design just won’t work.
It seems that we have air that gets into the system and the new pump isn’t strong enough just to SELF-PRIME with this way. With this way the motor still runs, runs, runs but water is not going through it and finally it turns itself OFF in order not burn out. Normally it should take only few second to refill the brewer tank.

There were many options that the problem was due to the check valve located in the base of the unit just below the reservoir seats itself. However actually this small new pump cannot press hard enough to open the check valve so the water can easily flow. If there is air in the system or slightly scale this make it harder.

I have found out that that the problem occurs only just a few weeks after we use a brand new machine.
So one very good way to solve the problem is to turn the machine on and lift the water reservoir up just a couple of inches and then jam it back in place fast and hard. With this way is like it injects just enough pressure into the system to open the check valve and when the motor pump will run you will realize that immediately water will passing through from reservoir to brewer tank. This procedure has to be done often between cups.

From what we seen in internet their hundreds about the same problem but we have not see any serious response about it From Keurings customer service yet.
One other important and related problem frequently reported is the irregulars doses of coffee like HALF-FILLED CUPS of coffee e.t.a

This must be redesign from Keuring factory since there is not much we can do about it to solve once for all even if they will replace your machine with a new one you will have the same problem in few weeks. And definitely this not a problem due your Electricity in your area or due to hard water. However hard water areas will face bigger and more intensive the above problem so one more suggestion is to decaling the machine every week this will help a lot.

If you find the above helpful please remeber to vote for it

Remove the screw and shower screen, make sure screen is clean and you can see through all the holes in it, if not set screen on the stove (open flame) to burn out the coffee oils in the filter. The coffee will burn before the screen gets any damage. When done you should have a new screen reassemble and test.

I have a solis 5000 coffee maker and would like to descale. the users manual says never use vinegar as it will harn the machine. It recomends a product called SOLIPOL, is there another product that you...


Hi
Starbucks used to carry a descaling product for their machines. Yes don't use vinegar because it is only 5% before you dilute it. It also leaves a taste for about 2 weeks that will affect the taste of your coffee. You can use Citric acid. 1 tablespoon per 32 oz of water. Use at least 2 table spoons. Dissolve the descaling solution so there are no crystals left. Now.
Turn the machine off and then push and hold the 2 buttons at the same time. While holding them down, turn the machine on.
Release the buttons and turn the dial counter clockwise till it stops.
This will keep the machine from heating.
If you push the steam button the pump will activate.
Open the steam knob. Run 8 oz through the wand and rekease the button. Let it set for 10 minutes, then open the knob again. Repeat until the tank is empty. Rinse with a whole tank of fresh water and your done.
If you have the Digital there is a program in the menu for descaling. There is also a program for resetting the descal mode so it will tell you the next time it need to be done. Chose yes and push the enter button. Also change your water hardness to 4. Descale more often than not enough.

I think you have get air in the system, try to find a bellows pump or similary. Fill it with water, open the steam knob and take of the water tank, put the pump in the water inlet and press. When the water begins to flow, close the steam knob and put the water tank back.

The water is not getting picked up when the pump runs


sounds like you need to prime the pump manually:
Fill water tank.

Turn power on.

Open the steam knob all the way.

Press the coffee button.

Put a cup under the steam pump wand.

Wait until you see a steady flow of water and no air.

When you see the flow of water, close the steam knob.

Turn off the coffee button.

Now the machine should be ready to brew an espresso.

You might need to do this if you have not used your espresso machine for a few weeks or if it has been moved.
if that does not work contact the service center:

You need a bellows pump or similar, when you start the pump you need to set the pump to the water inlet and press in the water with force.

Priming problem


Make sure you try to prime right when the machine is turned on, so that there is no boiler pressure making it more difficult to prime.
