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

Red light flashing does not turn to green on dolce gusto piccolo

Same thing just happened to my Dolce Gusto Piccolo. It was off for 2-3 weeks, and after turning on, the light just kept blinking red forever. I tried pulling out water reservoir and putting it back repeatedly for a few dozen times (saw somewhere that air should be pumped out of the system), but It didn't help. Then I plugged out the power cord from the wall socket (while the machine was on), and plugged it back after a few seconds. Turned the Piccolo on, and it worked (blinked red shortly and turned green). Maybe it has something to do with induced current. And maybe pulling the water reservoir actually helped :)

Dishwasher starts then pauses and drains.

Fixed! I had the issue where the cycle would start, the KUDS30IXBL8 would hum 4-5 times and then drain. Plastic folk pieces jammed in the disposer. These instructions took a few minutes (only 5 screws and a couple clips) to figure out how to take it apart, and it only took 60 seconds to put back together.

I have a duraheat 125,000 btu auto start (salamandar) with thermostat that was used once time last spring. it won't start and my husband tossed the box and yes..insructions in the fall.

Here is a link to the Owners Manual for your Dura Heat Model DFA-125 forced air kerosene heater.
In addition to how to properly operate it and perform routine maintenance, it has a trouble shooting guide, which should be of great assistance.

You can download and print this manual for future reference.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.
