Question about Saeco VIA Venezia
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?

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
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.
