Question about Saeco VIA Venezia

Open Question

Machine will not brew espresso

I have recently purchased a Via Venezia, the first time I used it the water did not push through it like videos I seen on you tube and then stopped working all together. Being a used machine and probably sat unused for a while I assumed it needed a cleaning witch I did and it still did not work. I removed the cover and the filer holder assembly and monitored the process. The system still did not work and the only thing that I noticed is it looked like the pressure was slipping past the pump. I could see steam on the suction side of the pump. It the pump pooched?

SOURCE: Saeco Via Venezia leaks water from front top overhang.

That is not normal, this tells me that the pump has too much pressure that it is forcing water through the brew unit, or the expansion valve(if your model has one was not set properly). Is there a high pitch noise when the pump is running. If yes then it is the expansion, if no then the springs and the valve pins in the brew valve(small white plastic piece behind the brew unit) needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: My machine won't brew. It

Hi hfish100,

I believe your Saeco Coffee Maker needs a brew head cleaning. It can get clogged with coffee residue and oils. Or it could be a bent injector valve or gate valve. Try the following:

- Remove the brew unit. Hold the handle, now the left top side is the "brew head". There will be an outlet pipe that exits the front side, towards the door (L-Shaped). Remove the 2 screws holding it to the top, while holding the L-Shaped pipe. Once they are removed, lift the l brew unit assembly off (be wary, there is an O-ring, spring and rubber seal/disk at the end) Then remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (with your finger not a key)
Under the screen is 2 holes (1 big one in the center, and a small one to the side)

- Put the brew unit upside down over a towel, insert a toothpick or a paperclip into the small hole and force anything out the other side. Use the toothpick/paperclip from this side to prevent damage to the seat on the other side.

- Clean the unit and then reassemble. Put the brew unit on towel right side up, now drop the crystal ball in first. Then the spring small on the crystal ball, followed by the O-Ring over the spring, then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the machine. Re-fit your screws, and tighten them.

- Re-Install screen, and tighten with your fingers (Remember! Your fingers). The screen just needs to be flush with the bottom of the brew head.

If done correctly this should solve your problem.

Kind Regards

How do I properly descale my via venezia espresso machine?


I believe the proper way is to run a vinegar water solution through the machine several times, I don't like to mess around so I use Lime away descaler, run it through both the steamer and the shot dispenser but not letting it get really hot while doing it. then I run several batches of cold clear water through the machine to rinse it.

Brew button turning off


The thermostat is cycling. This is normal as the unit has a small boiler. It is trying to maintain the temperature. It is a good idea to run some water (brew) through the portafilter before you put you coffee in to make you espresso. This will heat the portafilter, so you espresso is hot, and you get the good creama.

My machine seems to heat up, it runs like it is drawing water into the boiler and it will froth but it does not brew espresso now. What could be the problem?


Hi
If water comes out the head with out the portifilter in then its you portafilter or your grinds are too fine. If its not coming out the head then your pipe in the brew head are plugged with scale.

HI
There is a large screw in the brew head that your screw screws into. You need to replace the big screw and you should be good to go.

Water won't come out like its blocked


Water won't come out when you brew coffee or use the steam wand?
If its when you are using the steam/hot water valve the parnello might be clogged.
If it is when you are using the brew head, then try backwashing the machine with espresso machine cleaner(Purocaff or Cleancaff).
The pump could also be blocked, or the spring in the pump might be damaged, open machine and check pump.
