SOURCE: No coffee coming out of the machine!

First step, increase the grinder size. Note: only change grinder setting while the grinder is spinning. If that does not work, look into cleaning your brew group screens. The machine should have came with a key to remove the screen. If your machine as a preground option try making a preground coffee without inserting coffee to see if only water will come out. If water comes out then you know its your grinder. Usually too small of grinder sizes will stop water flow.

Check your grinder to see if the grinds may be too fine. Increase the grinder size and see if the coffee speed is increased.

If not, Contact saeco usa for support at 800-933-7876.

SOURCE: Looking for instructions on cleaning and servicing the Saeco Royal

Hi,

When you clean the brewing unit wash it with hot water, do not
use any solvent.

Make sure there are no coffee residues on the two steel filters: the upper filter can be removed by unloosening and turning the plastic pin anticlockwise using the tool supplied.
Dry thoroughly each central unit component, fit the filter again and tighten it properly with the screw .

To do a descaling:
Saeco descaler is recommended; however, you can use any non-toxic and/or non-harmful descaling product for coffee machines, commonly available in retail stores. The used solution is to be disposed of according to the manufacturer’s
instructions and/or regulations in force in the country of use.

Never use vinegar!

Best regards
/Mirran

SOURCE: Saeco Spidem Villa brews very slow

Hi
Yep.
Remove the brew unit. Holding the handle, the top left side is the brew head. There is an outlet pipe that exits the front side towards the door (looks like a long "L" pipe). 2screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold ("L" pipe assembly). Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (be careful, there is an O-ring, spring and at the end a black rubber disk or crystal ball).
Now remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (remember, thumbscrew), DON’T use the key to install the screen, use your fingers.
Once the screen is out look at where the screen was. There are 2 holes. A big one in the center and a small one to the side.
With the brew unit upside down over the towel, insert a paperclip into the small hole and force anything out the other side. I have gotten worms almost a 1" long from this passage. The paper clip has to go from this side to prevent damage to the seat on the other side.
Clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Drop the crystal ball in first. Then the spring small end first on the crystal ball.
Now the O-ring over the spring, then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the machine. Insert your screws (I turn them backwards a little with a little downward pressure until they feel like they drop into the threads. They should turn down easily, if not back them up a little more ( we are trying to find the old threads) and tighten. Install screen, and tighten with your fingers. The screen just needs to be flush with the bottom of the brew head. That should do it.

I have a Saeco syntia which I usually add beans, but have ground coffee and am not sure how much to add


If it's an espresso machine, you can find a manual at link. Use the scoop provided with the machine and add 1 scoop, no more than 2 scoops.

Slow water dispensing


How slowly in comparison to other units? Have you measured it how fast it runs ?? If slower than when Syntia was brand new is maybe caused by an insufficiently cleaned brew group or lack of proper descaling .Calcium or mineral in the unit's lines and boiler can slow down your machine .
if the filter screen is partially blocked from old coffee tar then water cannot flow faster . In my opinion it always runs slowly when rinsing .
If you use a "Coffee Residue cleaner "only use it in the pre-ground
setting chute and use only a pinch at a time . then run pre-ground setting without any grounds and run another one to clear the detergent
Very oily ,sticky coffee beans can plug up any late model superautomatic's system as you can read in the unit manuals . Because the laser cut holes in the fliter screen are so small that any coffee tar will not flow properly through the screens .I have had many machines which had to be switched to a less oily bean to work more than for2 or 3 cups .When beans are roasted too fast and too hot ,the coffee oil can turn to coffee tar .
My Xelsis unit cannot handle very oily beans . 2 cups and it STOPS
I only use beans roasted to American Coffee institute recommended procedures .

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....
