WEAK espresso from Saeco Vienna!
Well, when you set it that low it allows the water to pass very quickly and if the water passes very quickly there may not be sufficient time to absorb the coffee; hence weak coffee. The setting should be reset to the middle, at 10, and tried again. Then, if you want to change it move it only one or two numbers for enough cups to see if there is any change before you move it a large number. Going higher or lower makes it pass more or less quickly with results accordingly.
You may also have the dose set too low and you may want to set it higher increasing the amount of coffee in each dose.
Then again, since it was used, you don't know if the machine was taken apart by someone who reinstalled the machine with the dials you are using out of whack with where they should be set.
