Will not brew

Take a tooth brush and clean the little needle like thing that punctures the cup. Sometimes grounds get in there, and block it so the coffee can't dispense.

I have a Saeco Vienna Delux, coffee is being grinded but it is not making its way out. I removed the nozzle which divides coffee into 2 but a few drops are coming out. what can i do?

I think this will help you.
There are a couple of things on a delux that can cause this.
Your grind is to fine ( the big knob in the bean hopper is below 8. If it is turn the big knob to a larger number. You can turn the big knob any time but it has to be grinding to turn it to a smaller number. 3 cycles before it has changed the grind in the brew unit. You can push the button to stop so you don't have to wait for it to finish. If that is not it go to the next solution.

My Saeco Vienna at times seems to extract a cup of coffee extremely slowly (drips out). The next cup will come out at a normal rate. I've tried the grind at various settings, but the problem remains. Any...

HI You might need new burrs. When the burrs get dull, they will crush the beans instead of grinding them into small grounds. You start to get powder instead of grinds. They will slow the extraction, but then the next time they will produce the correct shot.

Saeco taleo grounds are very wet - almost fluid! this hase started recently when i changed my beans. i have changed the grind to course but with no effect. any ideas?

Try adjusting the amount of coffee and then the grind to finer. If there is not enough coffee in the chamber then it gets over extracted and you get a soupy puck at discharge, if the grind is too coarse, you might also get the same result. Think of your coffee grind as rocks and sand and that will give you a better feel for the proper setting for your machine.

Red warning light comes on in my saeco vienna deluxe I just aquired this unit and to date have not been able to make a cup of coffee. All the green lights light up and coffee starts grinding but after that...

More than likely your grind is to fine and you are using oily beans (shiney). There is a small knob in the bean hopper. turn it down to the minus side. Turn the big knob to the # 18. If that doesn't work you are going to have to take the grinder apart and clean it.

My Saeco magic grinds the beans, but no coffee comes out. Sometimes it makes one cup, and skips. Other times, I grind the equivalent of 8 cups of coffee without any cups of coffee coming out.

When a machine grinds but doesn't make any coffee there are a couple of things.
If the grounds are wet in the dredge drawer, then you have a plugged brew head and need to clean it.
If the grounds are dumped dry into the dredge drawer, then you have an overcharge and need to adjust the dosing lever back from the full charge. On your machine it is inside the door at the top center. Pull the lever back towards the front 1 click. Then try again.

Saeco Vienna. Wet cofffee grinds in the dump box.

It could be the grind on the coffee or the red group o-ring and the 2 o-rings on the white plastic valve need to be replaced.

When pushing button for a cup of coffee to be made - the beans are grinding and dumping in the box - however no water is coming thru to empty into my cup - the water is being dumped into the reservoir...

Dry grounds dumped.
There is a lever at the top of the door on the right side. Yours is actually inside the door on the machine. Pull the lever back 1 notch from the plus(+) . You are dumping too much coffee in the brew unit and it can not compress it, so it dumps it, or breaks the drive gears. Never push the lever all the way or it can cause this overcharge. Its fine if the brew group is clean but when you make coffee there is always a residue left and this is what causes the overcharge.
