Question about Saeco Vienna SuperAutomatica Coffee Maker/Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Machine has stopped working

When we switch it on, it makes a humming noise different from the usual start-up routine, then the red light flashes. Water, coffee, waste container all tested, system cleaned out thoroughly, nothing makes any difference. It does heat up water for the steam/hot water spout and I have tried flushing plenty of water throught that. Makes no difference. Any suggestions?

Sounds like there is something wrong with your brew drive motor, either electrical from the Power control Board or the motor itself. Could also be a few other things. I would have it serviced. You can find service centers near you by going to

All light flashing in my tassimo coffee machine noise as it will start but do not start'

Check the owner's manual and see if there is a reset button. If not then make sure that the cup that holds the grounds is fitting secu rely, If it's not in just right it will not allow the machine to start. These are simple ideas that you've probably tried but I hope they help.

Hi Your problem is the flow meter. It has a restriction and is not sending the correct signal to the computer. Replace the flow meter and you should be good.

Francis Francis X1 Popping noise - stopped working

Hi There are a couple of things that could have happened. The fuse could have blown, but you wouldn't get a pop usually. The main board could have blown, that will pop. There is a hole below the steam arm. up inside there is a screw that you can loosen. Then you can unscrew the steam knob. There are 4 screws on the bottom side of the cover that will allow you to remove the top. Make sure that the machine is unplugged.

Hello- I have a Saeco Italia machine, about 4

Try this press the pre ground button then the coffee brew button, if water flows from the spout then the grinder chute is blocked, if no water flows then the brew unit is screen blocked.
If grinder, then remove the brew unit and check the chute from the grinder.
