Is it plugged in, b.s.? j/k, it's probably a switch that needs replacing. check the basic things you need to do before reuse after cleaning. make sure the elect.outlet you plugged into is working (maybe try another outlet?) seems like a power supply problem; a blown/bad switch could effectively cut off power to the whole unit. good luck!

Coffee water dosen't come out


if i'm not mistaken its the steam that's coming out not water. possibly your heating element is dead, and not heating up water to the right temperature in order to turn it to steam.

Steam wand doesn't work on sunbeam cafe series coffee machine


Have you tried cleaning the steam wand nozzle with a paperclip (or the pin tool mounted in the back door of the unit?

Milk deposits can make their way inside the nozzle and block it, describing the symptoms you're getting.

Seaceo magic delux. Steam nozzle gives water and steam (just about) the machine makes a very loud drilling noise while trying to serve the coffee. Coffee is ground and moist when put in dispenser as it...


Please explain problem better. Whats this " just about " when you describe water and steam. Also on this cut off point that machine is getting hot . This machine gets hot normally , there is a heat cut off mounted on boiler but you would have to remove top off machine and physically check which I don't think you did.

No steam


Is the coffee hot or cold?

If hot then the steam wand is clogged, try inserting a paperclip in the hole(Remove the parnello black plastic covering silver steam wand) at the end of the nozzle.

If cold then the element is not heating, if you remove the top panel on the machine there is a thermostat on the boiler. That might be damaged, some of them are resettable (it will have a red or brown pin in the middle) if it is a resettable one then push in the pin, if not then it will have to be replaced.

I think I've figured my yard sale EX 80 out. First, the way I think it works... in the tightly sealed boiler the water is heated to boiling, it must have a pressure release valve that sends the water/steam through the coffee and into the carafe. So dangerously hot and under pressure. Before opening the big round cap at the top (reservoir) relieve pressure at the steam tube valve (right side)

Here's how I made my first batch:

When opening reservoir always turn unit off, let reservoir cool a little between batches or you may get a cloud of steam in your face when pouring in water, might not be good for the heating element to shock it with sudden drastic temperature changes either.

Cleaned by running a couple of jugs of water through, cold water (4 on the supplied jug) into the reservoir all parts installed. I read somewhere online (not specific to any machine) not lukewarm water, if it's online it must be true... right?

Put coffee into filter basket/basket holder, matching amount of water in reservoir, 2 or 4 (markings on filter and jug). Espresso coffee should be very finely ground

Install all covers and the coffee basket/filter basket, close steam tube valve, install carafe and turn on the machine. Should get blast of espresso after a couple of minutes.

The steam tube (operated by the valve) seems a little cheesy on first try but I'll get better with practice. There's no steam to the tube until the reservoir starts to send steam to the coffee, the coffee kinda restricts the steam enough to send it to the tube. I was thrown a little because I didn't get steam when I was cleaning the thing, but I think that was because there was no coffee to block the flow. So I opened the valve at the start of the brew, steamed the milk, closed the valve and then the steam blasts through the coffee, tasted good.

Great $1 find.

Hope this helps.

No hot water or steam


Well, I have little exposure to Saeco, but a lot to commercial coffee machines.
Saeco have a lot of custom made components, although these can be purchased, nothing is cheap! Neither is their repair service!
First, is the boiler heating?? If so:
No hot water/ no steam suggests a blockage. Assuming you can hear the pump working when attempting to do a coffee, you will probably find the water flowing back into the water tank via the relief valve. Of course, this valve itself could be the problem, or the pump failing to work through a blocked inlet filter or other problem.
Look now at the group head. Ever cleaned it? The filter and spray block should be removable, do so and clean them carefully. While you have them out, see whether water reaches the head by "making a coffee" into a cup placed under the head. BE CAREFUL OF SCALDING. If water now flows, cleaning the screen and spray block should restore operation.
Beyond that, it's inside the machine! There is a 3- way valve that operates when making a coffee. This can become clogged with coffee. There is another valve to open the steam.
If, like Saecos I have worked on, the boiler does both the hot water and the steam one at a time, look for problems BEFORE the boiler.
Hoe this helps a little....
