Question about Saeco Vienna De Luxe Espresso Machine

Brew cup stuck unable to get out

My Saeco Vienna cofee machine worked extremely well until today. We made coffee in the afternoon and in the evening the motor (with the green light) on made a sound as it was brewing ( no red light ), no cofee. It seems the brew cup is stuck and will not come out short of having to force it ,and probably would break. Can you help me
Thanks,
Cel

Hi,

If you open the door and take a flashlight, light in the front/middle of the brewing unit. You will see a little screw, take a screwdriver and loosen it, bend little on the little plastic above where the screw was and pull out the brewing unit.
When you have the brewing unit out then you need to reset the machine and brewing unit.

To reset the machine you have to turn off your machine, open the door.
Look in the down left corner, you will see a hole, look in the middle of the machin you see another hole and in the upper right corner.
put a screwdriver or similarly in the left corner and in the middle of the machine, turn on the machine and put another screwdriver in the upper right corner. hold it in place to the machine not get any noise more.

To reset the brewing unit, first put the plastic back again (that one you loosen with the screw first).
If you look back on the backsida of the brewing unit, in the middle you will see a plastic that looks lika a handle, force it down and you will see all the other parts will move around little. Turn it to you can see the little mark on the front goes to the N mark.

Best regards
/Mirran

Saeco Vienna machine...after brewing a couple of cups of coffee, water leaks from somewhere and comes out underneath the front grilled tray and onto the counter. Can I do the repair with the proper parts?


Depending on your ability to do some technical and minutious manual work, unmounting and remounting the machine is feasable.

Concerning the leaking, what I've seen most is a leak from the seal under the water tank. Any leaks coming form there would occur even though no coffee would be dispensed. (i.e: Idle mode)

If leak is ONLY occurring when brewing cofee, I would check the following:

1- Check if the water inlet on the back of the brew unit is filled with residue (the inlet looks like the end of a smoke pipe)

2-Open the machine, take out the interior, and verify the water tubes coming in and out of the boiler. They both should be sealed with 2 small o-rings. After time, o-ring tend to expand under heat and may start to leak.

Hope this helps

Saeco Vienna Coffeemaker won't heat/reach 'ready' state


May be time for a new machine.

Its either the electronics or the boiler, or worse. Both.

Vienna's have a typical life expectancy of about 4 to 7 years. 10 years is very commendable.

If the electronics and boiler are both bad it will end up costing almost as much as purchasing a new machine.

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.

Hi
Have you taken apart the brew unit lately? If so you did not put it back together correctly. Sounds like you have lost the crystal ball or you installed the spring upside down, in the brew head.

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.

Saeco Vienna: water does not go through to the main unit


I had the same problem and got on the Saeco US website and talked to an online support person. She downloaded me a couple of pages of "fixes", I tried them and they worked! You have to take the two screws out of the brew group, remove the spring and a little clear plastic ball. Then clean out the hole thoroughly. I stuck a toothpick up into it from underneath to clean out the coffee that was stuck in the hole. I then put it back together and now it works perfectly.
