Question about Saeco Royal Professional Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Pressure loss I've lost most of the pressure in my Saeco for the second time now. The first time it was under warranty and Saeco took care of it. I remember the invoice(which I didn't need to pay) showed around $4.00 in parts and 2 hours of labor. It's now doing it again and I don't remember what the problem was. I'm assuming it's the boiler seals. Can someone tell me if I'm on the right track and if that's a common deal with the Saeco's?(A friend with an italia also has been through the same problem 3 times). Also, I found a place I can order the boiler gasket set from and was wondering if this was a terrible chore to attempt myself(I'm very mechanically inclined). Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: pressure loss

Loss of pressure sounds like a faulty pump. You can test that by taking it out of circuit and putting it across 240 volts to see if it passes water. The pumps coil is not polarity conscious. If it makes noises but doesn't pass water, then replace it.
A noisy pump is a sure sign of it being inefficient.

This is the second time I've had electronic problems with my semi auto solis crema. The first time we sent this to empire fulfillment & it took 8 months to repair. I live in Michigan. Any...

Find a gaggia or saeco repair agent in your area, the machine is similar, and they should have no problem helping you, or if you are up to it you can repair it, with a little help of course.
First what is the machine not doing?
Second you will need a long thin phillips screwdriver, and some long torx drivers.

Saeco pressurized portafilter gets stuck in the locked position

No, no... He has a Saeco pressurized portafilter which has a valve that will not allow coffee through when the portafilter handle is pushed all the way to the right. His handle is locking in the rightmost position; this is not a grounds problem.

mjtourig: Can you not just nudge the handle to the left before you pull a shot to unlock it? If it is too clogged for that, try taking your portafilter apart to clean it. You'll have to remove the 3 screws on the bottom, and be very careful the entire time that you do not lose any of the parts (in particular, there is a spring under one of the screws that will want to pop out, and a tiny white plastic thing under that spring...). Good luck!

Saeco Aroma Problems

Whenever we had this problem we needed to prime the pump. Turn the machine on and wait for the coffee light to come on. Then push the coffee button and turn the steamer on wide open until water comes through the coffee outlet. I hope that helps. The user manual can be downloaded from the saeco site.
