I believe you have a digital system, there is a thermal control setting in the system that may have been improperly set at the factory. We sent a new system back with the same problem and they made the fix.

We have broken the handle on pressurized portafilter for Saeco Via Venezia espresso machine. where can we get replacement?

I don't think the handle is sold separately. Seattlecoffeegear does sells both a bottomless and an unpressurised portafilter for the Via Venezia. Both would be considered upgraded gear vs the pressurized one.

Dear Expert, My Saeco VIA Venezia Problem is : Machine never comes up to Temperature (no Green Indicator Light), ie. doesn't heat and no pump. Like a fuse is blown. I have been told that there is a 'RESET'...

There is a fuse on top of the boiler. Its under a clip on the outside edge of the boiler. It is covered in a redish brown cover that you have tpo slide off to see the fuse. It is just better to replace the hole thing. If you don't have a pump also it could also be the switch. If you have any power its probably the fuse.

Overheat cutout switch

The coffe maker has a heat fuse attached to the side of the pump so when over heats that melts and does not damage the coffee maker
They charge $100 to replace which is a bit tough, you could bypass easily but could damage the machine if not careful
as we have two and one has just stopped pumping, not picking up water so maybe worn valves and I just have it all to bits and noted the heat fuse on the side of the pump

Saeco via venezia overheat cut out

Disconnect from the power and remove the 5 or 6 grub screws retaining the main steel cover and take the cover off. You will see a plastic re-set button on top of the boiler amongst the electrical terminals - just click it on again.

To stop overheating always open the steam valve immediately you switch the machine on until water squirts out - this tells you the boiler is full & not dry! Also remember (unlike me!) to switch the machine off as soon as you have finished brewing...
