Question about Saeco Royal Professional Espresso Machine

My Saeco Royal Professional

I purchased this machine in January--- 9 mos. old.  It suddenly (out of the blue) stopped making large coffees.  Instead, I have to touch the middle size 2x to get more coffee.  what's wrong?

Re: my Saeco Royal Professional

Okay! This can be 1 of 2 things.


1. Your machine button needs to be programmed. Do this by holding the button down until the coffee is dispensed to the height of your likeing, then let go. The button should now be programmed.


2. Your machine is leaking internally and some of the water that should be going into your cup is going elsewhere.


Also try descaling your machine. For more info go to:

I have a Saeco Royal Professional at work and when each of the three coffee size buttons are pressed you get three different sized coffees. I have just bought a new Saeco Royal professional for home and...

Push and hold the button for the coffee you want, but hold it all the way through the process. Don't release the button until you get the amount of coffee you want for that button, then release the button. That should get you the same amount next time. You can do this for each coffee button. If that didn't fix it you might have a bad flow meter.

Hi. When I try to make a large cup of coffee, the machine makes more like a medium size cup. What can I do to fix that and get a true large cup? Thanks.

When making a cup of coffee hold the button in until the coffee reaches the height you want then release button. You can set the 3 sizes in this manner

Excessive water poured through shot

its possible someone held the buttons down to long enabling program mode.

Go to your local market and purchase a 3 ounce measuring glass. Place it where you place your coffee cup and hold down the small button, it should enable program mode. Stop it once it reaches 1 ounce or your desired amount.

Do the same for the large.

No power -- where is fuse?

Fuse is inside the machine. Looks like a black wire thats fat in the middle.

Its either that or the main board blew. I pray it is the fuse because saeco doesn't sell the royal boards anymore from what i understand.
