Question about Saeco Vienna De Luxe Espresso Machine

No power after water spill

Water spilled while pouring water into the reservoir ... believe some water may have gone into the coffee bean area, and possibly down into the machine. It would not have been very much ...; however, after wiping off the excess water, the machine does not power on. Any suggestions?

Pre heat your oven to 125 degrees or as low as it will go, when it reaches that temp. turn the oven off and put in your coffee maker, let it stay until the oven cools down and repeat three or four times, that should  dry out the electrical components.  Good luck.

Why does my Mr. Coffee pot fill and overflow with more coffee than the 12 cups of water that was put I the reservoir?


Looks Mr Coffee has a matter generating hability., defying basic laws of the universe. Kind of a "Little Bang Theory". Seriously, no, it has no secret water compartment. Possibly some water remaining there from previous use.

Does anyone know about the issue with the water holder on the Breville Fresca BES860. It wont sit in place correctly and spills water all through the machine...


There should not be a problem, it has moulded holders built in to both the back of the machine and in to the reservoir. They fit together, not just against each other. Once fitted together it locks securely, do not overfill it and do not fill it while on the machine. That will cause it to spill.

Keeps spilling over during brewing


These tanks can't actually be overfilled since all water poured in displaces the exact same amount of water coming out the spout. So, whatever amount of water you pour in, will be the same amount of water that flows to your pot minus the amount absorbed by the coffee grounds and filter.

Your problems sounds like an undersized (Non Bunn) filter, or clogged brew basket. To verify this, try pouring in only half the water for your brew cycle and wait for it to finish dripping, then pour in the rest. If no overflow has occurred, you simply have the wrong type of filter. If overflow begins again, you have a clogged brew basket, since no Bunn can flow too fast for the brew basket to keep up with it.

This is because Bunn filters are manufactured differently than generic store bought paper filters. They will flow faster, brew cleaner and stand up better than normal generic filters.
Remember, Bunn makes their OWN filters for good reason.
They made the first, best paper filters for drip coffee pots, and all others are just generic dioxin gas producing paper.

I live in a limestone area and the flow through my Senseo coffee maker is slowly reducing. How should I descale it?


Believe it or not, vinegar is a blessing for cleaning nearly anything out of your coffee maker.

Fill your water reservoir 1/4th full with vinegar, then fill it the rest of the way up with water.

Run the coffee maker, then let it sit for about 10 minutes. Pour the mixture back in to the reservoir and run it again. Let it sit another 10 minutes.

Dump the mixture and use plain water this time. Let it sit for another 10 minutes. Dump the water, then repeat with clean plain water.

Wash the filter basket and pot with hot soapy water. If the vinegar smell is still present, just run it again with plain clean water.

Dcc 2000 leaks


DCC-2000

March 16, 2009
I bought one of these last week. Boy, was I PO'd when it leaked cold water all over the countertop! I almost took it back to the store- then thought better of it and putzed around with it for a while until I stopped the leak and managed a pretty decent cup of coffee.

Here's what I did- TRY IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!

DO EVERYTHING EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED, COMPLETELY, AND IN THE ORDER GIVEN!

Once again, you're doing this at your own risk- I'm not connected with any coffeemaker manufacturer or seller- and I don't have any money- so suing me would be futile.....

The object of this exercise is to heat up whatever needs to be heated up in order to turn off Noah's Flood before it hits your counter top.

(1) Clean the coffeemaker thoroughly with cold water. Don't bother drying it.

(2) In a container, put in enough water to make the number of cups of coffee you want. Add a little extra- about 1/2 inch in the bottom of a coffee cup is enough. DON'T POUR IT INTO THE COFFEEMAKER YET.

(3) I used a paper filter- but I guess you can use the goldtone filter basket supplied with the
coffeemaker. DONT USE BOTH- use one or the other! Whichever you choose, put in enough ground coffee for the number of cups you want to wind up with.

NOW IT GETS TRICKY!
DON'T TURN ON ANY SWITCHES YET!
Be sure 1, 2, and 3 above are done completely. From here on, you are activating the heating element in your coffee maker, however briefly, with NO LIQUID IN THE MACHINE TO PREVENT THE HEATING ELEMENT FROM OVER-HEATING AND BURNING UP YOUR COFFEEMAKER. And, you gotta be ready because everything gets done QUICKLY after this.

(4) Take a deep breath. Turn the left-hand rotary switch to BREW. The heating element is now powered up. Immediately, pour the small amount of water in Step 2 above S-L-O-W-L-Y into the trough located along the side of the water reservoir ahead of the filter holder. I SAID S-L-O-W-L-Y ! ! !

(5) Select the 2-4 cup button if that's what you want.

(6) Now, pour the rest of the water you have measured S-L-O-W-L-Y into the same trough you used earlier in Step 2.

(7) Check beneath the dispensing lever to be sure there's no coffee leaking. If there is, press UP on the lever and try to turn it off.

(8) Eventually it will quit gurgling and belching. And, your countertop should be dry (If your machine has the same quirks mine did.....)

You really shouldn't have to do all this, not for a $100+ coffeemaker- But, once you get a load of coffee in it, and your counter top is dry, it's really such a convenient way of dispensing a really good cuppa coffee, I think I'll probably keep it and and put up with the hassle.

Maybe this'll jog the engineers into fixing the problem once and for all . . . . .

Coffee leaks after it is brewed


The water reservoir on this mdoel is very close to the coffee reservoir - if excess water gets between the wall of the coffeemaker and the coffee reservoir, it will leak exactly as you described. Make sure no water spills out of the water reservoir when your pour it.

Beans won't grind


Try cleaning out the grinder with the instruction for this link: http://www.cerinicoffee.com/Saeco_technical_documents.asp

Polyglot, if you have done this already it sounds like there is something wrong with the grinder switch on your machine. You will have to get the machine serviced.

We service saeco espresso machines based out of New York.
Checkout our website for more information: www.CeriniCoffee.com

Youngie,

Your problem is not the same as Polyglot. Try cleaning out the grinder using the link above. It works 50% of the time. For some reason your machine is not grinding. Common reasons are water has been accidentally spilled in the bean hopper or the grinder just has a problem and needs to be addressed.

In the case where water spills into the bean hopper you may need to change the grinder burrs. (http://cerinicoffee.com/Grinder_burrs_saeco_gaggia.asp)

Hope this helps.

Water in the Beans...


you will have to open up the machine from the top and take the mill apart. be careful as there are springs and balls which might be hidden in the coffe powder. you will also need to clean the rectangular tunnel going from the mill to the powder release. if you are not good at doing things yourself then you better give it to a service center. they should have about one hour of work with it.
