Question about Saeco Vienna De Luxe Espresso Machine

Liquid leak while Vienna runs...but where from?

I clean/rinse my Saeco Vienna machine daily, I brew approx. 3-4 espressos each morning, have had the Vienna for about a year. A month or two ago I started to find liquid underneath the pull-out tray after brewing, rather than in the tray. This liquid apparently travels toward the front of the unit, seeping down into the right side hole in the bottom front of the plastic base, wetting the countertop underneath with a combination of liquid and coffee grounds. Every removable part looks clean, is clean, everything fits together closely and properly so the unit always runs OK, water tank O-ring and spring look fine, I de-scaled the machine a couple of weeks ago, so why am I getting this leak, and where does it originate? Any good guesses?

    This morning I decided to find my leak. I have had my machine apart before, but do not know how to get the guts (being a darker color gray than the outside of the machine) out to repair the leak I discovered. One of the brass fittings that has a thin plastic hose connected is wet, and when brewing, actually drips. Since I cannot figure out how to remove the insides, I think I'll just find a round tray that the whole machine can sit inside of. Not a fix, but it will keep the counter and floor from getting wet.



    If anyone knows how to get the darker part of the machine apart from the lighter part, I'd love to know how. It feels like something is holding it in place, like a clip or a hidden screw.

I have had the same problem and here is what I did to fix mine.
When you take the brew group out there is a small spout (about 3/16") in the back that looks like a D on it's belly. This was clogged on mine. I used a toothpick to clean it out. I then poured water in the opening above the spout to flush it out.
Hope this helps!

You may have a cracked coil inside the boiler and cracked nut of the coil going up to the wiring lug. Check it out, it will be a hair thin crack, almost invisible.

Leaking Saeco lpus vienna machine


Keep cleaning...make sure that run off spout the leads to the tray is 100% clear. Run water through it (with a sponge for example) to make sure you get all the sludge out. Careful about what sort of coffee you use. I have had bad luck with Illy coffee unfortunately.

I need instructions of how to clean the Saeco Vienna Superautomatica in and outside. We lost the manual.


-Rinse Brew unit under warm water, and let dry.
-Rinse coffee tray, water tray and water tank under hot water (may melt in dishwasher)

The rest coffee been tank and exterior needs to be washed with a warm cloth, just make sure it is not to damp, which could leave water drops in the grinder.

My saeco vienna water is leaking out from somewhere underneath


If it is coffee colored water, then remove the brew unit and look under the white plastic valve in the machine, you will notice a small chamber, clean chamber of coffee grounds and make sure the little discharge to the draintray is also clear. Insert brew unit and check machine.

Leaking water


Hi,

Take out the brewing unit and look in the chassis behind where the brewing unit was, you will see a little hole, put in your finger and make sure the hole is clean.

Saeco Vienna leaking


We had this problem and it was overflow from a clog -- check the hole where excess water drains into the drip tray to see if it is full of grounds. Cleaned it out with a twistie tie and flushed w/ water. That stopped the water on our counter!
