Question about Saeco Vienna De Luxe Espresso Machine

Saeco Vienna Deluxe not hot enough

My maching pumps water at 160 degrees F. Should it not be hotter? The boiler was replaced a month ago, now this. Would a new thermostat fix this or should I return for another boiler? Thanks in advance.

Hi
They should have checked the temperature before shipping it out. There is a sensor on the back of the boiler that has (depending on how old the machine is) 2 orange wires. In the wire or on the wire is a resistor. You can remove the resistor and raise the temperature about 6 to 12 degrees, but I think you need a new sensor.

Hi! One of my friends has an old Vienna Digital coffee maker (Saeco). It works fine. The only problem she has is that her coffee is never hot enough. She has to put her cup into the microwave if she...


Hi,
There is a thermostat that is stuck on the boiler. I would suspect that this thermostat has either:

1- A bad contact with the boiler. Contact is assured by thermal paste
2- The thermostat is faulty and gives false readings, thus preventing the boiler to heat the water enough.

Hope this helps

On my saeco vienna machine i hear the pump working but no water is coming through


Any water leaks following the pumping sound ?

If there is no leaks, I would try to get some hot water from the wand.

If there is still no water coming out, I would:

1-Decalcify thoroughly

2-Open the machine and take the inside out and verify the status of the water pipes going from the water tank to the boiler than to the wand and the brew unit ... to make sure there is no restriction.

3-Replace water pump

My Saeco Vienna Digital has been really great (constant use since 2005), but now it is leaking water, and sometimes only half a cup comes out. I think there is an O ring that needs to be replaces (orange,...


Hi
The O-rings are made of silicone and usually don't wear out. The usual cause is the boiler gasket. Heer is a picture of what to look for. The white in the center of the boiler is scale (calcium) that builds up on the center portion of the boiler. It will build up enough to let the gasket not seal and the boiler leaks. The other thing is if you descale hot. The descaler will turn the gasket brittle and it won't seal. The last thing is not descaling enough. Everybody thinks their water is good and don't need to descale. WRONG. I have great water but I descale every 3-4 months depending on how many coffees I have done. The machine will tell me and I descale. My machine is a Italia Digital and I make 10 - 12 coffees a day. It is now going on 8 years. Still has the same boiler. Descale more often than not enough and your machine will last a long time.bansheracer_6.jpg

How can I descale my Saeco Vienna without beans in the hopper?


Hi
Never run descaling solution through the brew unit. You should never descale the machine hot either.
1. To decalcify your boiler, remove your water tank and fill it with hot water (100 to 120 degrees). Open a pack of decalcifier and mix into the water tank. Place the tank back on the machine, then turn the machine on.
2. Open the steam knob and run approximately eight ounces of solution into a spare container. Turn the machine off and let set about 10 to 15 minutes. It is very important that the machine does not remain on to heat the boiler anymore than necessary.
3. Repeat step #2 for your type of machine. Do this until you have consumed the entire water tank of solution (approximately four to five cycles) .
4. Remove water tank and rinse it with fresh water.
5. Refill the water tank with fresh water and place it back on the machine.
6. Repeat step #2 to rinse the machine, only this time use the entire water tank at one time, and there is not need to let it set. Done, refill your tank and run some water, and you are ready to go.

Descale the saeco vienna not digital super aotomatic machine.


Remember, it is better to descale more often than not enough.
1. To decalcify your boiler, remove your water tank and fill it with hot water (100 to 120 degrees). Open a pack of decalcifier and mix into the water tank. Once it is dissolved, place the tank back on the machine, and then turn the machine on.
2. Open the steam knob and run approximately eight ounces of solution into a spare container. Turn the machine off and let set about 10 to 15 minutes. Longer is better. It is very important that the machine does not remain on to heat the boiler anymore than necessary.
3. Repeat step #2 for your machine. Do this until you have consumed the entire water tank of solution (approximately four to five cycles). (I do it at night before I go to bed and let the last cycle set in the boiler till morning.)
4. Remove water tank and rinse it with fresh water. Now open the knob and run the whole tank at one time to rinse.
5. Refill water tank with fresh water and place it back on the machine.
Done

Only hot water comes out of the steam wand


Hi
Sounds like you might need a new steam boiler, or you may have a fuse that is blown for the steam boiler.

Temperature control on Saeco magic deluxe


No it cannot. I am not sure why you would want the water hotter. It is designed to be at the perect temperature for passing through the brew group for coffee brewing, its kind of a simple science. 
If your machine has been producing less hot coffee gradually, that marks an issue. Try descaling the boiler per the manufacturer's inscrutions even if the warning light isnt on. The other option is that the thermal fuse mounted to the boiler is bad and turns off the boiler prematurely, those cost about $15 and are simple to replace. Lastly, the boiler heating element may be 'burnt out' new boiler is $120+
