Weak Coffee from my Saeco Vienna Plus

Have had machine for a year and it never brews a decently strong cup of coffee. Seems to grind ok. I have tried several different beans, max'ed the beans per cup dial, descaled, etc. Any other suggestions?

SOURCE: My Vienna Digital suddenly makes weak coffee and it not hot

Try resetting the maching to factory settings.
Here is another question, bear with me, what do you brew the coffee into? And is it pre-warmed?

SOURCE: Saeco Vienna grinds too much coffee.

Hi
If you have the Delux or Digital there are 2 knobs in the bean hopper. Turn the small knob back 1 mark and see if that will help.

SOURCE: Hello. I have a saeco vienna superautomatic

This happens due to condensation caused by steam developed at the end of the grinding cycle. Make sure that the grinding chamber is completely cleaned and dried before using the grinder.

  1. Turn the whole bean chamber to the right until it can be lifted off the base. This will allow you to clean the grinding wheel. NOTE: Never use water or liquid for cleaning the lower grinding section of this appliance.
  2. Clean interior recesses with a soft brush (not provided).
  3. Wash the whole bean chamber and lid and the ground coffee chamber and lid in mild detergent and water. These items are only dishwasher safe on the top rack of your dishwasher. Wipe exterior with a damp cloth. Do not immerse mill in water or any other liquid or place in dishwasher. Use only non-abrasive cleaners to remove stains.
  4. After completely drying, replace whole bean chamber. Important: when replacing whole bean chamber, screw on completely before setting grinding rate. Turn chamber clockwise (as viewed from top), until it will not turn. Fill with whole coffee beans for grinding and replace lid.
  5. Replace ground coffee chamber and lid, making sure it snaps securely into place.

Is my Coffee Machine dead?


Hi, you should check first the safety contacts (door open detection, brew group inserted detection) that will prevent your machine doing its initialization properly.
If all contacts are OK (check with a multimeter), it might be the electronics board has a failure. If the lights goes on, the power supply seems ok. Try ti figure-out which section is faulty.
Do you have any alarm light on ?

Hope that helps.

Saeco Vienna Deluxe -- Coffee weak weak weak


When the coffee is weak, that is often because the water is not at adequate temperature.

Check if the coffee is in right quantity and pressed in the right way. If it is than it means that the water was not hot enough.

Check water temperature, if water is completely cold, the element mus be replaced, if water is hot, but not enough, then replace thermostate activating the pump.

Saeco Vienna Plus Home Espresso Machine Superautomatic - right now,we like the machine. However, we cannot seem to get it to brew a decent cup of espresso. The first half is good and then goes to way too...


Grinder is only turn to a smaller # when its grinding. You can turn to a larger # any time. There is a dial on the panel that controls how much water goes through the brew unit.
What do your grinds look like. If they are like sugar granules your Ok, but if they are very coarse you grinder has come apart and needs to be cleaned and snaped back together. If you look at the white cork screw in the center of the grinder it should be centered and not to one side.

Coffee is too weak


Hi there,
I just spoke to someone at customer service. My coffee has been weak and kind of thin. We had the Superautomatica by Saceo for years and I remembered the coffee being richer.
Anyway! The person suggested that I adjust the grind but slowly. So set it to the coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. Then put it to the 2nd-coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. To the third, brew 2-3 cups. To the forth, brew 2-3 cups. Etc. Until you're at the finest grind setting. Again, brew 2-3 cups. An awfully sensitive machine. It seems to have worked although the last few seconds of brewing continue to be a kind of milky colour (as opposed to a deep black coffee colour). You can, though, press the "cup" button to stop the brew. So once, it starts running milky, you can stop the cycle.
I hope this helps. I know I've been struggling and cursing the machine for a while :)

What does the coffee produced taste like, is it bitter and watery, is there any creama on the espresso shot. Try adjusting the grind and the coffee level, maybe a little coarser.

Re: no coffee comes out after the grinding and loading stages!


Sounds like your coffee grinder is grinding too fine. I would up the size of your grinder. The larger the numbers the coarser the grinds. Also, should descale the machine if you haven't in a while. One of these two things may help.

Also, if the above two things do not work you can try to clean out your grinder using the instruction #2 posted on the website http://cerinicoffee.com/Saeco_technical_documents.asp

Saeco De Luxe Coarse Grind


You could have knocked it out of its shaft or worse, Cracked the shaft itself.

Settings could be off too, It fairly common. Recheck the chamber, and make sure the plastic casing isn't cracked and the grinder doesn't wabble at all. It should be fairly firm.

If it isn't firm, bad news, cracked shaft.

Problem getting a Full Cup of Coffee


besides descaling you need to lube the brew group, especially the bit that accepts the group nozzle. You might have a leaking boiler too, 6 years is pretty good for a vienna.

Remove the brew group and look for the two red o-rings on teh brass bit, smear some lube on it, they might need replacing by now, but luckily they aren't too expensive and readily available albeit a bit tricky to install, a good light and some patience is very important.
